(hereinafter “Inertial Sense”). Customer and Inertial Sense agree that the purchase, sale, and use of Inertial Sense hardware and software products (the “Products”) and any related services and support (the “Services”) provided hereunder are subject to these Terms and Conditions. Inertial Sense shall not be bound by Customer’s additional or different terms, including the terms of any purchase order or similar document provided by Customer.
Customer agrees that these Terms and Conditions shall become a legally binding contract upon the occurrence of any of the following acts: (a) Customer ordering or purchasing any Product or Service, (b) Customer providing to Inertial Sense a specification of assortments, delivery dates, shipping instructions, or instructions to bill and hold as to all or any parts of the Products, (c) Customer taking delivery of the whole or any part of such parts or Products, (d) Customer assenting to these Terms and Conditions in writing, orally, or by conduct, or (e) Customer consenting to these Terms and Conditions by means of an electronic signature or by affirmatively checking the box indicating Customer’s acceptance to these Terms and Conditions on the Inertial Sense website.
PRICING AND PAYMENT – All quoted prices are in US dollars, unless otherwise explicitly stated, and are valid for thirty (30) days. Product prices are exclusive of, and Customer shall be responsible for the payment of, all shipping charges, costs of freight, taxes, import fees, insurance, duties, value-added taxes, and the like.
Payment is due 30 days from the date of invoice unless otherwise negotiated in the purchase agreement. If the Customer delays payment, he shall be liable, without further notice for default interest at the rate of 6% per annum above the actual discount rate of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank effective from the date on which payment was due. Checks and wire transfers do not constitute payment until they have cleared. All bank charges for wire transfer must be borne by the Customer. Inertial Sense Inc may at any time prior to shipment demand advance payment, satisfactory security, such as a confirmed and irrevocable letter of credit or a bank guarantee to ensure payment.
If at any time, Customer (i) is liquidated, dissolved, ceases to do business or otherwise terminates its business operations; (ii) becomes insolvent; (iii) makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; (iv) institutes or has instituted against it any proceeding under any Law relating to bankruptcy or insolvency or a receiver or trustee is appointed for all or a substantial part of its assets; or (v) fails to make a payment when due or defaults in any way, Inertial Sense may, at its option, alter terms of payment, declare all amounts owed by Customer past due, suspend credit and delay shipment, terminate any licenses granted here under, and pursue any other remedies available to Inertial Sense at law or under these Terms and Conditions. In such event, Customer agrees to indemnify and reimburse Inertial Sense for its reasonable expenses, including, but not limited to, collection fees, court costs and attorney fees associated with the collection of past-due balances.
ORDER ACCEPTANCE – Written purchase orders are required for all purchases greater than 25 units. Each purchase order shall constitute a firm offer and shall indicate specific products, quantity, price, shipping instructions, requested delivery dates, bill-to and ship-to addresses, and any other special instructions. Any contingencies contained in such order are not binding upon Inertial Sense. All orders are subject to acceptance by Inertial Sense, who will accept or reject orders according to Inertial Sense’s then current practices. If the order is a “Blanket or Call Off Order”, the initial release may be scheduled according to current lead times and the balance must be scheduled for delivery within 365 days from the date on the PO. At the end of 1 year, unshipped items will be shipped without additional notice to the customer.
ORDER CHANGES AND CANCELLATION – Purchase order changes affecting product configuration/options must be authorized by Inertial Sense in advance and may be subject to additional charges and/or price adjustments. Maximum period a blanket purchase order is valid is twelve (12) months. Additions to blanket purchase orders may be made within first thirty (30) days after the order is received. Due to purchasing commitments made by Inertial Sense in response to blanket orders, no reductions in initial blanket order quantities can be accepted. Changes to scheduled ship dates for blanket purchase orders must be made at least four (4) weeks in advance. All shipments due within four weeks are considered firm and cannot be changed. In the event that the Customer cancels all or parts of an order or fails to meet all obligations resulting from an order, causing the cancellation of an order or portion thereof, the Customer agrees to pay a cancellation fee of 50% of the product price as stipulated in the order confirmation. Recognizing that the damages to Inertial Sense arising from any cancellation or rescheduling of any order will be difficult to estimate, the parties agree that the aforementioned cancellation fee covers Inertial Sense expenses and is not intended as a penalty.
DELIVERY – Upon receipt of purchase order, Inertial Sense will provide an estimate of lead-time until delivery. While this is not a binding commitment, Inertial Sense will make every effort to make delivery based on this lead-time estimate. Each shipment released from a blanket must be at least equal to $500 or 8% of the order total whichever is larger. Accelerated deliveries may be available with an expedite fee. Late delivery does not entitle the customer to cancel the order or to claim damages. Inertial Sense is not obligated to pay any contractual penalty should it delay in delivering product.
LIMITED WARRANTY – Inertial Sense warrants that the Products will be free from defects in material and workmanship and materially conform to their applicable specifications for a period of one (1) year from the date of shipment by Inertial Sense (the “Warranty Period”), provided that such Products are operated under normal conditions and in accordance with their applicable specifications during such Warranty Period. This warranty does not apply to any Products that have been (i) subject to misuse, neglect, or abuse, (ii) improperly installed or maintained, (iii) repaired or altered by any party other than Inertial Sense; or (iv) acquired or used in violation of these Terms and Conditions. The warranty period for Products repaired or replaced will be the balance of the Warranty Period.
CUSTOMER REMEDIES – Inertial Sense sole obligation with respect to the foregoing Limited Warranty shall be to, at Inertial Sense option, repair or replace any defective Product. In the event Customer suspects that a Product is defective, Customer may return such Product to Inertial Sense together with a statement indicating Customer’s basis for suspecting that the Product is defective. Inertial Sense may examine the Product and determine whether the Product is defective. If Inertial Sense determines that the Product is defective and covered by the Limited Warranty, Inertial Sense will repair or replace the Product.
PRODUCT RETURNS – Customer may return any Product(s) within thirty (30) days of the day of receipt of such Product(s) for a full refund excluding costs for shipping and handling (customer assumes shipping risks). Returned Products will be accepted as long as the Products are unaltered, and undamaged, and all original package contents are returned. Customer shall contact Inertial Sense in writing to acquire a Return Merchandise Authorization (“RMA”) and RMA reference number. After an RMA reference number is issued to Customer by Inertial Sense, the Product must be packaged securely to ensure that it will not be damaged in transit.
