“Goods & Services”
The term “Seller” means ALLTEC, the term “Buyer” means the company, person or other entity who is the purchaser of the Goods, the term “Goods” means any goods or materials ordered and sold pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein.
Unless otherwise stated, price of the Goods shall be the price in effect at the date and time of shipment. Seller reserves the right to adjust price based on volume purchases; any discounts allowed for volume purchases will be in the Seller’s sole discretion. Price does not include any sales, use, excise or similar taxes which shall be added to the price of the Goods and shall be the responsibility of Buyer. Unless otherwise stated, minimum order is $125.00 (excluding freight) on any single order. Each shipment will be separately invoiced.
- Payments Terms
Terms of payment are net thirty (30) days. Service charge on late payments shall be applicable at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or an annual percentage rate of eighteen (18%) per annum. In addition, Buyer shall be obligated for Seller’s reasonable collection agency or attorneys’ fees that may be incurred by Seller to collect any sums due Seller hereunder or service charge. Seller reserves the right to apply any payments received from Buyer to any outstanding invoice of Seller at Seller’s sole discretion.
The purchase price of the Goods shall be EXWORKS or FOB as applicable, Canton, NC or other named shipping point. In situations of “prepay and add”, ALLTEC is unable to provide a copy of the actual freight bill due to agreements with our carriers regarding rate disclosure confidentiality.
(a) Seller’s place and point of delivery shall be deemed to be delivery to a carrier at Seller’s plant in Canton, NC, USA or such other designated shipping point designated by Seller. If Buyer fails to furnish complete shipping directions to Seller within a reasonable time of placing the order, Seller, at Seller’s discretion, may make necessary shipping arrangements with a carrier selected by Seller, the cost of which shall be paid by Buyer.
(b) If and to the extent a delivery date is stated, it is the estimated delivery date only. All accepted orders, whether or not delivery dates are specified thereon, shall be subject to delays or failures in manufacture or delivery due to causes beyond the control of Seller or carrier. Buyer’s obligations shall continue notwithstanding any delay in delivery, provided if performance by Seller is prevented in whole or in part for a period of three (3) consecutive months, then in such event Seller or Buyer (provided Buyer is not responsible for the delay) may cancel any order that has not been shipped as of such date.
(c) If for any reason, the Buyer is unable to accept the delivery of Goods according to the mutually established schedule; the Seller, at its option and after three (3) days written notice to the Buyer, may place the Goods in storage. In such event, the Buyer shall pay any and all storage or other related costs. If the Buyer fails to accept any delivery or part thereof, the Seller, at its option, may treat such failure as a breach of this Agreement and exercise any and all remedies available to it pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein or available to it as a matter of law.
The Seller’s obligations are at all times subject to the Seller’s approval of the Buyer’s credit standing. Upon request, the Buyer shall furnish the Seller such credit information as may be customary and reasonably requested by the Seller. At its discretion, the Seller reserves the right to require payment in advance, C.O.D., and/or otherwise modify credit terms. If at any time the Buyer is past due with respects to amounts due, the Seller at its option (without liability or prejudice to any other remedies), may decline to ship or stop any Goods in transit until such time the Seller (1) receives payment in full of all amounts owing to it by the Buyer or (2) otherwise receives assurances satisfactory to the Seller of such payment.
- Risk of Loss
Risk of loss or damage to the Goods shall be solely that of Buyer upon delivery to a carrier for shipment; any loss or damage subsequent to such delivery shall not be the responsibility of Seller, provided further any such loss shall not release Buyer from Buyer’s obligation to pay for the Goods. Any claim for damage or loss in transit must be asserted by Buyer against the carrier.
