Buyer’s acceptance is expressly limited to the terms of this Agreement, and this Agreement exclusively governs the sale of Products by Seller. This Agreement supersedes and excludes any terms and conditions set forth in any Purchase Order placed by Buyer, or any other document issued or deemed to be issued by Buyer, to Seller (including, without limitation, Buyer’s general terms and conditions of purchase), each of which are expressly rejected. Any reference in this Agreement to any request for quotation, request for proposal or any other similar bid document made by Buyer is solely for the purpose of incorporating the description and specifications of the Products contained in such document, but only to the extent that such description and specifications do not conflict with the description and specifications contained in this Agreement. Any additional or different terms proposed by Buyer, whether in Buyer’s Purchase Order or otherwise, or any attempt by Buyer to vary the terms of this Agreement in any way, are expressly rejected by Seller, are not part of this Agreement and do not apply to the sale of Products, and are not binding on Seller without the express prior written acceptance of such terms by Seller’s authorized representative. Buyer and Seller expressly agree that these Terms and Conditions are accepted in good faith by both parties as the controlling and final terms and conditions for all sales by Seller to Buyer. None of the terms, provisions or conditions of this Agreement may be modified, altered or added to except by written instrument signed by a duly authorized representative of Seller. Any agreed upon change will be subject to an equitable adjustment in the purchase price and/or time for performance.

To avoid delay in filling orders, Customers without previous experience with TACK Electronics should include credit information or references with their first order or remit cash. Each shipment shall be a separate transaction and payment shall be made accordingly. If in the exclusive judgment of TACK Electronics, the financial condition of Customer at any time does not justify the commencement or continuation of shipment on the terms specified herein, in addition to other remedies it may have at law or in equity, TACK Electronics may demand full or partial payment in advance, suspend its performance until such payment is made, and/or cancel Customer’s order if such payment is not received by TACK Electronics within thirty (30) days after delivery in person or mailing of said demand by TACK Electronics. If shipments are delayed by Customer, payments shall become due from the date TACK Electronics is prepared to make shipment. Products held for Customer because of such delay in delivery shall be at the risk and expense of Customer.
Changes and Cancellations: Prices are based on quotes and quantity ordered. Orders accepted by Seller are not subject to changes or cancellation by Buyer, except with Seller’s consent. If a change or cancellation is made, it is agreed that all finished Products be taken at full contract price, that Products in process be paid for at cost plus pro rata profit, and that Seller be protected against loss on materials purchased or on contract for the fulfillment of the Agreement.
Taxes: Prices on the Products specified herein are exclusive of all local, State or Federal excise taxes, including but without limiting the generality of the foregoing taxes on manufacture, sales receipts, gross income occupation, use and similar taxes. Where applicable, such tax or taxes may be added to the invoice as a separate charge to be paid by the Buyer.
Delivery: Excusable Delays: Delivery dates are estimates as to time of shipment only, and are based upon conditions prevailing at the date of quotations or acceptance of orders and are not guaranteed by Seller. Seller shall not be liable, or deemed in default, for unforeseen delays that may be caused by changing conditions, or for any delay in performance of its obligations under the Agreement or in delivery of shipment of material or for any damages suffered by Buyer for reason of any delay if such delay is caused by, or results from, acts beyond Seller’s reasonable control, including fires, floods, accidents, riots, mobilization, war, rebellion, blockages, hostilities, Government regulations, restrictions, interference or embargoes, strikes, lockouts, differences with workmen, inadequate transportation facilities or any other difficulties, shortages of labor, fuel, materials, suppliers or power, or any other cause or causes. The Agreement shall be deemed to be suspended so long as any such causes prevent or delay the execution of Seller’s obligations. Seller agrees to make and Buyer to accept deliveries whenever such causes have been remedied.

All packages leaving TACK Electronics are packaged according to commercial standard packaging practices. Title to the Products will pass to Buyer upon Seller’s receipt of full payment.
