December 15, 2015

 

 

Acceptance-Agreement

 

Seller's commencement of work on the goods subject to this purchase order or shipment of such goods, whichever occurs first shall be deemed an effective mode of acceptance of this purchase order. Any acceptance of this purchase order is limited to acceptance of the express terms contained on the face of any purchase order submitted by Purchaser and those terms contained herein. Any proposal for additional or different terms or any attempt by Seller to vary in any degree any of the terms of any Purchaser's purchase order or the terms contained herein is hereby objected to and rejected, but such proposals shall not operate as a rejection of this offer unless such variances are in the terms of the description, quantity, price or delivery schedule of the goods, but shall be deemed a material alteration thereof, and this offer shall be deemed accepted by Seller without said additional or different terms. If this purchase order shall be deemed an acceptance of a prior offer by Seller, such acceptance is limited to the express terms contained on the face of any purchase order submitted by Purchaser and those terms contained herein.

 

Termination for Convenience of Purchaser

 

Purchaser reserves the right to terminate this order or any part hereof for its sole convenience. In the event of such termination, Seller shall immediately stop all work hereunder, and shall immediately cause any of its suppliers or subcontractors to cease such work. Seller shall be paid a reasonable termination charge consisting of a percentage of the order price reflecting the percentage of the work performed prior to the notice of termination, plus actual direct costs resulting from termination. Seller shall not be paid for any work done after receipt of the notice of termination, nor for any costs incurred by Seller's suppliers or subcontractors which Seller could reasonably have avoided.

 

Termination for Cause

 

Purchaser may also terminate this order or any part hereof for cause in the event of any default by the Seller, or if the Seller fails to comply with any of the terms and conditions of this offer. Late deliveries, deliveries of goods which are defective or which do not conform to this order, and failure to provide Purchaser, upon request, reasonable assurances of future performance shall all be causes allowing Purchaser to terminate this order for cause. In the event of termination for cause, Purchaser shall not be liable to Seller for any amount, and Seller shall be liable to Purchaser for any and all damages sustained by reason of the default which gave rise to the termination including all costs for testing for defective goods.

 

Proprietary Information-Confidentiality-Advertising

 

Seller shall consider all information furnished by Purchaser to be confidential and shall not disclose any such information to any other person, or use such information itself for any purpose other than performing this contract, unless Seller obtains written permission from Purchaser to do so. This paragraph shall apply to drawings, specifications, or other documents prepared by Seller for Purchaser in connection with this order. Seller shall not advertise or publish the fact that Purchaser has contracted to purchase goods from Seller, nor shall any information relating to the order be disclosed without Purchaser's written permission. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, no commercial, financial or technical information disclosed in any manner or at any time by Seller to Purchaser shall be deemed secret or confidential and Seller shall have no rights against Purchaser with respect thereto except such rights as may exist under patent laws.

Seller warrants that all goods or services furnished hereunder will be merchantable, and will be safe and appropriate for the purpose for which goods or services of that kind are normally used.

Seller warrants that goods or services furnished will conform in all respects to samples. Seller warrants that all goods furnished were manufactured, produced and tested in compliance with cGMP and appropriate U.S., state and foreign regulations.  Inspection, test, acceptance or use of the goods or services furnished hereunder shall not affect the Seller's obligation under this warranty, and such warranties shall survive inspection, test, acceptance and use. Seller's warranty shall run to Purchaser, its successors, assigns and customers, and users of goods sold by Purchaser. Seller agrees to replace or correct defects of any goods or services not conforming to the foregoing warranty promptly, without expense to Purchaser, when notified of such nonconformity by Purchaser, provided Purchaser elects to provide Seller with the opportunity to do so. In the event of failure of Seller to correct defects in or replace nonconforming goods or services promptly, Purchaser, after reasonable notice to Seller, may make such corrections or replace such goods and services and charge Seller for the cost incurred by Purchaser in doing so.
