The term “Goods” means all of the products, materials and related services that Buyer desires to purchase from Seller. The sale of the Goods that are the subject of the Order will be governed by these terms and conditions of sale (“Terms and Conditions”). If Buyer and Seller are party to a supply agreement that references these Terms and Conditions, then these Terms and Conditions are incorporated into and made a part of such agreement. “Agreement” means (i) the supply agreement (if any) existing between Buyer and Seller that references these Terms and Conditions, (ii) these Terms and Conditions, and (iii) each Order accepted by Seller.
Seller’s quotations are offers which may only be accepted in full. All Orders are subject to acceptance by Seller. Acceptance is conditioned on Buyer’s agreement to all of the Terms and Conditions. The Terms and Conditions contain the sole terms and conditions that will govern the Order. Seller objects to any terms and conditions which differ from, or are additional to, those stated in the Terms and Conditions. After acceptance of an Order by Seller, the Order and the Terms and Conditions may only be modified by a writing signed by an authorized representative of Seller.
3. Prices and Payment.
Buyer will make payment pursuant to Seller’s invoices at the prices and charges set forth therein, subject to any applicable agreement by the parties. Prices are subject to change without notice any time prior to Seller’s acceptance of Buyer’s Order. All prices and payments are in U.S. dollars. The prices and charges stated do not include the cost of freight, insurance or state or federal excise, sales or use taxes, if any. All such charges and taxes which are applicable to the sale of the Goods are in addition to stated prices and will be paid by Buyer. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Seller, payment terms are net thirty (30) days from the date of invoice. Seller retains all rights at law pertaining to the collection of unpaid amounts owed by Buyer under the Terms and Conditions, and Buyer will reimburse Seller for all costs associated with such collection activities, including reasonable attorney’s fees, and Seller reserves the right to charge 1-1/2% interest per month on late payments. Whenever reasonable grounds for insecurity exist with respect to due payment by Buyer, Seller may demand different terms of payment and may demand assurance of due payment.
4. Delivery; Title; Risk of Loss.
Unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing by Seller, all Goods are sold FOB Seller’s facility (Incoterms 2010). The cost of transportation and risk of loss of the Goods shall be borne by Buyer. Title to the Goods will pass to Buyer when the Goods are picked up by Buyer at Seller’s facility or when the Goods are delivered to the carrier at Seller’s facility, whether the carrier is selected by Seller or Buyer. Reasonable advance written requests for shipment by Buyer’s preferred carrier will be honored, if possible.
5. Delivery Dates; Delays.
All delivery and shipping dates are estimates only. Seller expressly reserves the right to deliver the Goods at any time prior to the estimated delivery or shipping date. Seller will use commercially reasonable efforts to fill the Order in accordance with the estimated delivery or shipping date, but Seller will not be responsible for any delays in filling the Order nor liable for any losses or damages resulting from such delays. If delivery is delayed at Buyer’s request, the Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered to Buyer on the date that Buyer receives notice that the Goods are ready for shipment.
6. Cancellation; Modification.
Buyer may cancel or modify an Order after acceptance by Seller, in whole or in part, with Seller’s express written consent. Seller may require, as a condition to such consent, payment by Buyer to Seller of an amount specified by Seller to compensate Seller for costs incurred and lost profits relating to the Order. If Buyer cancels all or part of an Order for special, non-standard products (“Specials”), Buyer shall pay Seller the greater of an amount equal to (i) 100% of the price for such cancelled Specials, or (ii) the actual and consequential damages incurred by Seller, including lost profits. If Buyer cancels an Order without Seller’s express written consent, Buyer shall pay all costs incurred by Seller and compensate Seller for any lost profits it may suffer in the event Seller is unable to resell the Goods to a third party at the original contract price.
7. Force Majeure.
Seller will not be liable for delays in filling the Order or failure in the performance of any of its obligations under the Order caused by accidents, labor disputes or disruptions, strikes, shortages of labor, materials, fuel or power, fires, floods or other acts of God, acts of terrorism or war, acts or omissions of Buyer, delays in transportation or lack of transportation facilities, priorities required, requested or granted for the benefit of the U.S. Government, restrictions imposed by law or any rules or regulations thereunder, or any cause, whether similar to or dissimilar from those set forth above, beyond Seller’s reasonable control. Seller shall notify Buyer in the event of a Force Majeure and Seller shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel an Order or any part thereof in the event of a Force Majeure.
8. Inspection, Acceptance or Rejection.
Buyer will make adequate inspection of the Goods promptly after their receipt, and in any event within ten (10) days after delivery at Buyer’s facility, and will give Seller prompt written notice of any non-conformity or defect within such 10-day period. Buyer shall hold such non-conforming or defective Goods pending Seller’s inspection. Shortages must also be reported to Seller in writing within ten (10) days after delivery at Buyer’s facility. Buyer’s failure to comply with this Section 8 will constitute a waiver of any non-conformity or defect and cause all allegedly short shipments to be deemed complete.
Seller warrants that the Goods sold to Buyer meet specifications. Such warranty from ROSE PLASTIC MEDICAL PACKAGING USA, LLLP is limited to twenty-four (24) months from the date of delivery of the Goods to Buyer. In all cases, Buyer must make a claim for breach of warranty under this Section 9 prior to expiration of the twenty-four (24) month warranty period, notwithstanding any longer statute of limitations. Seller will have no liability whatsoever in respect of any defect arising from (i) Buyer’s specifications, (ii) ordinary wear and tear, (iii) willful damage by Buyer or its customers, (iv) negligence on the part of Buyer or its customers, (v) abnormal working conditions at Buyer’s or any of its customer’s facilities, (vi) Buyer’s or any of its customer’s failure to follow Seller’s instructions (whether oral or in writing), or (vii) Buyer’s or any of its customer’s misuse or alteration or repair of Goods sold hereunder without Seller’s prior written approval. Seller’s sole obligation and liability in the event of breach of warranty and Buyer’s sole remedy, as determined by Seller, will be repair or replacement of non-conforming Goods free of charge at Buyer’s delivery point. Such repair, replacement or repayment will be made only upon return of the non-conforming Goods, which may be returned at Seller’s cost only after inspection by Seller (which may be by Buyer returning a sample to Seller at Seller’s request) and Buyer’s receipt from Seller of definite shipping instructions. Goods that are repaired or replaced are warranted only for the remainder of the original warranty period.

ANY SUCH TERMS WOULD CONSTITUTE A MATERIAL ALTERATION OF THE CONTRACT BETWEEN SELLER AND BUYER.
11. Limitation of Liability.
In no event will Seller be liable for any incidental, consequential, indirect, special, contingent or punitive damages (including without limitation lost profits) arising out of or relating to: (i) any breach of contract or warranty, tort (including negligence or strict liability), or other theories of law with respect to the Goods sold or services rendered, or undertakings, acts or omissions relating thereto; (ii) the tender of defective or non-conforming Goods; or (iII) any claim of any kind arising out of or relating to any Order or Seller’s performance in connection therewith.

These items shall be used by the Seller in fulfilling Orders of Buyer, but if a period of twelve (12) months has elapsed since the receipt of an Order from Buyer requiring the use of such tools, dies, plates, and fixtures, Seller may thereafter make use of or dispose of such items as Seller desires, without accounting to Buyer for such use or disposition, or the proceeds thereof.
