Computype, Inc. Standard Sale Terms And Conditions.
Offer and Acceptance.
This document is an offer to enter into an agreement. For an effective agreement to be reached, a duly authorized agent of Purchaser must accept all of the terms and conditions set forth below, none of which can be altered or amended without Computype’s prior written agreement.
Quotations and Prices.
Computype shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to adjust the price of its products and/or services. Prices are subject to change without notice and orders calling for future delivery will be billed according to the price in effect at the time of delivery. Shipping and handling charges shall be added to the purchase price and shall be paid by Purchaser unless otherwise agreed. Oral quotations will not be honored by Computype and written quotations will automatically expire ninety (90) calendar days from the date issued and are subject to earlier termination by written notice.
The net amount of each invoice is due in full, within thirty (30) days of date of invoice. If, in Computype’s opinion, the financial condition of the Purchaser at any time does not justify continuance of production or shipment on the then existing payment terms, Computype may amend the payment terms, including the requirement of advanced, full or partial payments. A 1½% interest charge per month will be charged on past due accounts, to the extent permitted by law.
All present or future sales, use, revenue, excise or other taxes applicable to the products or equipment which are the subject of this Agreement shall be added to the purchase price and shall be paid by Purchaser, unless Purchaser provides Computype with a tax exemption certificate acceptable to the relevant taxing authorities.
Both the method and the route of shipment are at the discretion of Computype, unless Purchaser supplies explicit instructions to the contrary. All insured shipments will be made at Purchaser’s expense. Identification of the products or equipment to the agreement and the risk of loss will pass to Purchaser at the time of delivery to the carrier.
After Purchaser places an order which is accepted by Computype, Purchaser may cancel the order only with the written consent of Computype. Upon such cancellation, Purchaser shall pay or reimburse Computype for all of Computype’s costs, expenses and its loss of profit which resulted from the cancellation of the order.
Special Orders and Indemnity.
To the extent of the law, if any product or equipment is manufactured and/or sold by Computype to meet Purchaser’s particular specifications or requirements and is not part of Computype’s standard offered line to the trade generally in the usual course of Computype’s business, Purchaser shall defend, protect, and save Computype harmless against all suits at law or in equity and from all damages, claims, and demands for actual or alleged infringement of any United States or foreign patent and Purchaser shall, at Computype’s request, defend any suit or actions which may be brought against Computype for any alleged infringement because of the manufacture and/or sale of any such product or equipment.
Purchaser acknowledges and agrees (i) that all software products, provided by Computype, are being licensed and not sold for Purchaser’s use, (ii) that the words “purchase,” “sold” or similar words are intended to, and are agreed to mean “license” and (iii) that Computype retains ownership of and title to all software products provided to Purchaser, notwithstanding any contrary language in the agreements between the parties. Computype hereby grants Purchaser a nonexclusive, royalty free license of the software products which Purchaser agrees to use, operate and process only with equipment purchased by Purchaser from Computype.
