In the event of any conflict or inconsistency, written or oral, between Seller's Terms and Conditions and the terms and conditions in Purchaser's order or any other document, Seller's Terms and Conditions shall prevail. No alterations or modifications will be binding unless submitted in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Seller.
All quotes, unless otherwise specified, are subject to acceptance by Purchaser within thirty (30) days from date of quotation. Unless otherwise stated, all prices are FOB factory and are subject to change by Seller, with or without notice. Where expressly stated in the quote, surcharges may be added to the invoice to cover material price changes for copper, aluminum and steel. Prices do not include any applicable taxes imposed by any taxing authority and may be added to the invoice or reimbursed to the Seller upon written notice. Purchaser shall be responsible for all such taxes.
Transportation will be at Purchaser's expense. Seller's quotation will specify whether the purchased goods will ship Freight Collect or transportation costs are included in the quote (Freight Allowed). Shipping dates are estimates and are not guaranteed. Seller shall not be liable for any delays, loss or damage in transit.

Orders accepted by Seller are not subject to changes or cancellations by Purchaser except upon Seller's written consent. Seller reserves the right to change engineering specifications and internal manufacturing processes without incurring obligation to Purchaser.
Purchaser shall inspect the goods within ten (10) days of receipt ("Inspection Period"). Purchaser will be deemed to have accepted the goods unless it notifies Seller during the Inspection Period of any nonconforming goods and reasonably furnishes written evidence or other documentation required by Seller. All sales of goods to Purchaser are made on a one-way basis and no goods may be returned to Seller without permission. All returns must include a return authorization number.

Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the remedies set forth in this section are Purchaser's exclusive remedies for the delivery of nonconforming goods.
Seller's responsibility for the goods ceases upon delivery to the carrier, except for obligations covered under Seller's Warranty, below. In the event of loss or damage incurred during shipment, Purchaser's claim shall be against the carrier only.
Seller warrants that the goods will be free against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of shipment provided the goods are stored and handled properly prior to being put into service, provided the goods are installed correctly and provided the goods are subjected to normal use and service. Alteration of the goods by anyone other than Seller or its authorized representative voids Seller's warranty responsibility. The obligation under this warranty is limited to the repair or replacement, at Seller's option, of the goods (or defective part). Notification of the defect must be received by Seller within the warranty period. This warranty extends only to the original Purchaser. Back charges, penalties, labor costs and shipping charges are expressly excluded from this warranty.

IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE TOTAL OF THE AMOUNTS PAID TO SELLER FOR THE GOODS SOLD HEREUNDER.

This includes the handling, installation, repair, use or operation of the goods.

All matters arising out of or relating to this Agreement are governed by and construed with the internal laws of the State of Tennessee without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provisions. If any term or provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction.
