1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS. All sales by SpectraDynamics, Inc. and its affiliates to Buyer of the Products will be governed by these terms and conditions (“Terms of Sale”). If the terms and conditions of any offer from Buyer or any other Buyer document differ from these Terms of Sale, these Terms of Sale shall be construed as a counteroffer and will not be effective as an acceptance of Buyer’s terms and conditions, which are hereby rejected. THESE TERMS OF SALE SHALL BE THE COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE STATEMENT OF THE TERMS OF AGREEMENT BETWEEN BUYER AND SPECTRADYNAMICS. Buyer’s failure to dissent to these Terms of Sale in writing within ten (10) days of receipt thereof or Buyer’s acceptance of the Products shall constitute acceptance of these Terms of Sale. No addition to or modification of these Terms of Sale will be effective unless made in writing signed by SpectraDynamics.
2. QUOTATIONS AND PRICES. All Quotations are valid for ninety (90) days. Unless otherwise stated in writing by SpectraDynamics, all prices set forth on the Quotation shall be exclusive of shipping, insurance, taxes, license fees, customs duties and other charges related thereto, and Buyer shall pay all such charges related thereto.
3. PAYMENT. All payments are due and payable in U.S. dollars. SpectraDynamics reserves the right to require different payment terms for different Customers and/or Countries, including Net 30, without limitation, a letter of credit or payment in advance. Payments not made by the due date may incur, at the sole discretion of SpectraDynamics, a late payment service charge of one percent (1%) per month or the maximum rate permitted by law, computed from the date payment was due. All payments, including deposits, shall be non-refundable. SpectraDynamics shall retain a purchase money security interest and/or other security interest in the Products, and in any proceeds thereof, including insurance proceeds, until Buyer has made all payments required hereunder. Buyer agrees to take any acts (including executing and delivering all documents) reasonably requested by SpectraDynamics to protect, maintain, and perfect SpectraDynamics’ security interest.
4. SHIPPING. Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only, and in no event shall SpectraDynamics be liable for any delay in delivery or assume any liability in connection with shipment. All Products shall be delivered F.O.B. destination. Unless otherwise contracted, shipping costs shall be prepaid by Buyer if requested by SpectraDynamics. Risk of loss and damage thereto shall be borne by SpectraDynamics until delivery to the F.O.B. destination point, and any loss or damage thereafter shall not relieve Buyer from any payment obligation, rather SpectraDynamics will be responsible to replace any lost or damaged item(s). Unless otherwise contracted, the carrier shall be deemed an agent of SpectraDynamics.
5. INSPECTION. All Products delivered hereunder shall be deemed accepted by Buyer, unless written notice of defect or nonconformity is received by SpectraDynamics within ten (10) days of receipt of Products at Buyer’s designated receiving address; provided that Buyer may only reject Products for failure to meet the Products’ specifications.
6. WARRANTY. SpectraDynamics hereby warrants to Buyer, that during the applicable Warranty Period (Standard 12 months from date of shipment) the Products will conform to SpectraDynamics’ published specifications and will be free of defects in materials or workmanship when used, installed and maintained in accordance with SpectraDynamics’ published specifications. SpectraDynamics’ sole liability and Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy for breach of warranty shall be limited to, at SpectraDynamics’ option, either repairing or replacing the defective product or crediting Buyer for the amount Buyer has paid to SpectraDynamics for the applicable Product. SpectraDynamics’ liability shall apply only to Products which are returned to the factory, with shipping charges prepaid by Buyer, and which are, after examination, determined to SpectraDynamics’ satisfaction to be defective due to defects in materials or workmanship. SpectraDynamics will only accept returns authorized by a SpectraDynamics representative and with a valid RMA number.

For Products that are discontinued, SpectraDynamics’ liability shall terminate at the end of the 12 month standard Warranty Period.
