STANDARD Terms & Conditions
These terms and conditions govern the sale of Products(“Product or Products”) by Stat Medical Inc. (SMI). These terms and conditions (“Agreement”) take precedence over Buyer’s supplemental or conflicting terms and conditions to which notice of objection is hereby given. Neither Seller’s commencement of performance or delivery shall be deemed or construed as acceptance of Buyer’s supplemental or conflicting terms and conditions. Stat Medical’s failure to object to conflicting or additional terms will not change or add to the terms of this agreement. Buyer’s acceptance of the Products and/or Services from Seller shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of the terms and conditions contained herein.
1. Orders: All orders placed by Buyer are subject to acceptance by Seller. All orders must identify the products, unit quantities, part numbers, applicable prices and requested delivery dates of the Products being purchased. The Seller may designate certain Products and Services as non-cancelable, non- returnable (“NCNR”) and the sale of such Products shall be subject to any special terms and conditions contained in Seller’s Order Acknowledgement, which shall prevail and supersede any inconsistent terms and conditions contained herein or elsewhere. All special-order items must be signed for your acknowledgement of accuracy. It is the buyers responsibility to ensure that the order is correct and to sign it and send it back to stat medical. The order will only be processed once we receive the signed order acknowledgement.
2. Prices: The prices of the Products are those prices specified on the front of the invoice. Price quotations shall automatically expire in thirty (30) days from the date issued, or as otherwise stated in the quotation.
3. Taxes: Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Seller, all prices quoted are exclusive of transportation and all applicable taxes. Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold Seller harmless for any liability for tax in connection with the sale, as well as the collection or withholding thereof, including penalties and interest thereon. When applicable, transportation and taxes shall appear as separate items on Seller’s invoice.
4. Payment: Payment may be made by check, money order, credit card, PayPal or wire transfer (all fees are borne by the Buyer). Where Seller has extended credit to Buyer, terms of payment shall be net thirty (30) days from date of invoice, without offset or deduction unless otherwise noted by Stat Medical Inc.. On any past due invoice, Seller may impose interest at the rate of one and a half percent [1.5%] per month. If Buyer fails to make each payment when it is due, Seller reserves the right to change or withdraw credit and thereby suspend or cancel performance under any or all purchase orders or agreements in which Seller has extended credit to Buyer. In the event of default by Buyer, Seller shall be entitled to costs, fees, and expenses, including but not limited to recovery of attorney fees, court costs and fees, and collections costs.
5. Delivery and Title: All deliveries will be made “EXWORKS” place of shipment. Title and risk of loss pass to the Buyer upon delivery of the Product from the carrier. Seller’s delivery dates are estimates only and Seller is not liable for delays in delivery or for failure to perform due to causes beyond the reasonable control of the Seller, nor shall the carrier be deemed an agent of Standard Terms and Conditions. A delayed delivery of any part of an Order does not entitle Buyer to cancel other deliveries.
Delivery charges are quoted "Dock to Dock" by default unless otherwise specified by formal quote. If any additional services are required or requested by the customer, such as "tailgate delivery" or "inside delivery", all associated costs will be added to the customer invoice.
