In the event such changes or additions are accepted by Seller, Seller may revise the price and dates of delivery. Buyer may cancel orders only upon reasonable advance written notice and upon payment to Seller of Seller’s cancellation charges which include, among other things, all costs and expenses incurred, and, to cover commitments made, by the Seller and a reasonable profit thereon. Seller’s determination of such termination charges shall be conclusive.

3. TERMS OF PAYMENT - Unless otherwise specified by Seller, terms are net thirty (30) days from date of Seller’s invoice in U.S. currency. Seller shall have the right, among other remedies, either to terminate this agreement or to suspend further performance under this and/or other agreements with Buyer in the event Buyer fails to make any payment when due, which other agreements Buyer and Seller hereby amend accordingly. Buyer shall be liable for all expenses, including attorneys’ fees, relating to the collection of past due amounts. Should Buyer’s financial responsibility become unsatisfactory to Seller, cash payments or security satisfactory to Seller may be required by Seller for future deliveries and the Products theretofore delivered. If such cash payment or security is not provided, in addition to Seller’s other right and remedies, Seller may discontinue deliveries.

4. SHIPMENT AND RISK OF LOSS - All shipments are F.O.B. point of shipment. Risk of loss or damage and responsibility shall pass from Seller to Buyer upon delivery to and receipt by carrier. Any claims for shortages or damages suffered in transit are the responsibility of Buyer and shall be submitted by Buyer directly to the carrier.

While Seller will use all reasonable commercial efforts to maintain the delivery date(s) acknowledged or quoted by Seller, all shipping dates are approximate and not guaranteed. Seller reserves the right to make partial shipments. Seller, at its option, shall not be bound to tender delivery of any Product for which Buyer has not provided shipping instructions. If the shipment of the Product is postponed or delayed by Buyer for any reason, Buyer agrees to reimburse Seller for any and all storage costs and other additional expenses resulting therefrom.

5. EXCUSE OF PERFORMANCE - Seller shall not be liable for delays in performance or for non-performance due to acts of God; acts of Buyer; war; fire; flood; weather; sabotage; strikes or labor disputes; civil disturbances or riots; governmental requests, restrictions, allocations, laws, regulations, orders or actions; unavailability of or delays in transportation; default of suppliers; shortages of labor, fuel, raw material or machinery; or technical failure where Seller has exercised ordinary care in the prevention thereof; or, unforeseen circumstances or any events or causes beyond Seller’s reasonable control. Deliveries or other performance may be suspended for an appropriate period of time or canceled by Seller upon notice to Buyer in the event of any of the foregoing, but the balance of the agreement shall otherwise remain unaffected as a result of the foregoing.

If Seller determines that its ability to supply the total demand for the Products, or to obtain material used directly or indirectly in the manufacture of the Products, is hindered, limited or made impracticable due to causes set forth in the preceding paragraph, Seller may allocate its available supply of the Products or such material (without obligation to acquire other supplies of any Products or material) among its purchasers on such basis as seller determines to be equitable without liability for any failure of performance which may result therefrom.


6. RETURNS - Under no circumstances may Any Product be returned to the Seller unless advance written authorization from the seller is received within 30 days after shipping of product by seller. In addition for any product being returned with authorization all shipping, crating and insurance charges are to be fully paid for by the seller. Any Product specially manufactured or described as custom or any non-standard options and accessories (such as pass through items, etc.) purchased for installment by seller for the Buyer is not returnable. Standard Product, in an unused and undamaged condition, subject to written authorization above, and inspection by seller upon its return within thirty (30) days after receipt is subject to a restocking fee and/or payment by Buyer of up to Twenty-Five (25) percent of the purchase price and no less than 10% for a trade, inspection and restocking charge plus any additional damage found upon the products return.


7. LIMITED WARRANTY - Subject to the limitations of this Section and Section 8, Seller warrants that the Products manufactured by Seller will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and regular service and maintenance for a period of from six (6) to thirty-six (36) months from date of shipment by Seller (“Warranty Period”) dependent upon the model of product, as more specifically set forth in the Instruction or Operating Manual covering the use of such model of Product. Products purchased by Seller from a third party for resale to Buyer shall carry only the warranty extended by the original manufacturer.

If within thirty (30) days after Buyer’s discovery of any warranty defects within the Warranty Period, Buyer notifies Seller thereof in writing, Seller shall, at its option, repair, correct or replace F.O.B. point of manufacture or refund the purchase price for, that portion of the Products found by Seller to be defective; provided, that buyer’s exclusive remedy for a breach of this warranty as to converters shall be limited to one time replacement of the converter. Failure by Buyer to give such written notice within the applicable time period shall be deemed an absolute and unconditional waiver of Buyer’s claim for such defects. Products repaired or replaced (excluding converters) during the warranty period shall be covered by the foregoing warranty for the remainder of the original warranty period or ninety (90) days from the date of shipment, whichever is longer. This warranty shall not apply to and does not cover:
(a) Any Product: (1) which has been repaired or altered by parties other than Seller in any manner so as, in Seller’s judgment, to affect its serviceability or proper operation; (2) which has been subjected to improper handling, installation, operation, maintenance, repair, or modification, or alteration; or (3) which has been subjected to misuse, negligence, abuse, accident, abnormal wear and tear, or deterioration caused by chemicals or other substances or corrosion;
(b) transducer surfaces or horn surface wear, each of which is a normal occurrence and develops over time in the operation of ultrasonic equipment; and
(c) Performance or nonperformance of the Products in Buyer’s application of the Product, unless otherwise provided for by Sonitek in the warranty section as contained in the Instruction or Operation Manual governing the use of the model of Product. Buyer acknowledges that, due to differences in abrasive qualities of materials used in Buyer’s (or other user’s) parts on the Products, the life span of the horn and/or fixture cannot be predicted, and Buyer’s (or other user’s) specific application of the Products may be impractical or inappropriate.

Buyer assumes all other responsibility for any loss, damage, or injury to persons or property arising out of, connected with, or resulting from the use of Products, either alone or in combination with other products/components.

THESE ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES GIVEN BY SELLER WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCTS AND ARE IN LIEU OF AND EXCLUDE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WHETHER OR NOT THE PURPOSE OR USE HAS BEEN DISCLOSED TO SELLER IN SPECIFICATIONS, DRAWINGS, OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT SELLER’S PRODUCTS ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED AND/OR MANUFACTURED BY SELLER FOR BUYER’S USE OR PURPOSE.

8. LIMITATION OF REMEDY AND LIABILITY - THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR BREACH OF ANY WARRANTY HEREUNDER (OTHER THAN THE WARRANTY PROVIDED UNDER SECTION 9) SHALL BE LIMITED TO REPAIR, CORRECTION OR REPLACEMENT, OR REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE UNDER SECTION 7.

SELLER SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY DELAY IN PERFORMANCE AND IN NO EVENT, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION (WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, INFRINGEMENT, NEGLIGENCE STRICT LIABILITY, OTHER TORT OR OTHERWISE), SHALL SELLER’S LIABILITY TO BUYER AND/OR ITS CUSTOMERS EXCEED THE PRICE TO BE PAID BY BUYER FOR THE SPECIFIC PRODUCTS PROVIDED BY SELLER GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION. BUYER AGREES THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER’S LIABILITY TO BUYER AND/OR ITS CUSTOMERS EXTEND TO INCLUDE INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. The term “consequential damages” shall include, but not be limited to, loss of anticipated profits, business interruption, loss of use or revenue, cost of capital or loss or damage to property or equipment.

9. PATENTS AND COPYRIGHTS - Subject to the limitation of the second paragraph of Section 8, Seller warrants that the Products sold, except as are made specifically for Buyer according to Buyer’s specifications, do not infringe any valid U.S. patent or copyright in existence as of the date of shipment. This warranty is given upon the condition that Buyer promptly notify Seller of any claim or suit involving Buyer in which such infringement is alleged and cooperate fully with Seller and permit Seller to control completely the defense, settlement or compromise of any such allegation of infringement. Seller’s warranty as to use patents only applies to infringement arising solely out of the inherent operation according to Seller’s specification and instructions of such Products. In the event such Products are held to infringe such a U.S. patent or copyright in such suit, and the use of such Products is enjoined, or in the case of a compromise or settlement by Seller, Seller shall have the right, as its option and expense, to procure for Buyer the right to continue using such Products, or replace them with non-infringing Products, or modify same to become non-infringing, or grant Buyer a credit for the depreciated value of such Products and accept return of them. In the event of the foregoing, Seller may also, at its option, cancel the agreement as to future deliveries of such Products without liability.

10. General Provisions - These Terms and Conditions supersede all other communications, negotiations and prior oral or written statements regarding the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions. No change, modification, rescission, discharge, abandonment, or waiver of these terms and conditions shall be binding upon the Seller unless made in writing and signed on its behalf by a duly authorized representative of Seller. No conditions, usage of trade, course of dealing or performance, understanding or agreement purporting to modify, vary, explain, or supplement these Terms and Conditions shall be binding unless hereafter made in writing and signed by the party to be bound, and no modification or additional terms shall be applicable to this agreement by Seller’s receipt, acknowledgment, or acceptance of purchase orders, shipping instruction forms, or other documentation containing terms at variance with or in addition to those set forth herein. Any such modifications or additional terms are specifically rejected by Seller. No waiver by either party with respect to any breach or default or of any right or remedy, and no course of dealing, shall be deemed to constitute a continuing waiver of any other breach or default or of any other right or remedy, unless such waiver be expressed in writing and signed by the party to be bound. All typographical or clerical errors made by Seller in any quotation, acknowledgment or publication are subject to correction.

The validity, performance, and all other matters relating to the interpretation and effect of this agreement shall be governed by the law of the state of Connecticut. Buyer and Seller agree that the proper venue for all actions arising in connection herewith shall be only in Connecticut. No action, regardless of form, arising out of transactions relating to this contract, may be brought by either party more than two (2) years after the cause of action has accrued. The Convention for the International sales of goods shall not apply to this agreement.
