Buyer agrees to pay a delinquency charge of 1.5% per month or if such rate exceeds the maximum rate allowed by applicable law, then a delinquency charge calculated at such maximum rate on the outstanding balance not paid when due, from the date such balances were due until payment with respect thereof is made in full. If, in Seller’s opinion, the financial condition of the Buyer at any time does not justify continuance of production or shipment on the terms of payment specified, Seller may require full or partial payment in advance.
Unless explicitly stated in a contract agreement, purchase order, or quote, Seller warrants that the Goods manufactured by it will be free from defects in material and workmanship for ninety days (90) following the date of shipment. The foregoing warranty is expressly in lieu of all other warranties, expressed or implied. All other warranties, expressed or implied, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose not expressly herein, are hereby excluded. No affirmation of Seller, by words or action, other than as set forth in this warrant clause shall constitute a warranty.
Goods which may be sold by Seller but which are not manufactured by Seller are not warranted by Seller, but are sold with the warranties, if any, of the manufacturers thereof.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Seller’s liability (whether under the theories of breach of contract or warranty, negligence, or strict liability) for the Goods shall be limited to repairing or replacing, at Seller’s option, Goods found by Seller to be nonconforming, or at Seller’s option, to refunding the purchase price of the non-conforming Goods. At Seller’s request, Buyer will send, at Buyer’s sole expense, any allegedly defective Goods to the Seller’s facility from which the Goods were originally supplied, unless Seller directs otherwise. 2 General Terms and Conditions (CIN-064-0) 5/11/2012
