This writing constitutes an offer or counteroffer by Reliance Detection Technologies, LLC. (Seller) to sell the product described herein in accordance with these terms and conditions. This writing is not an acceptance of any offer made by Buyer, and acceptance of this offer is expressly conditioned upon the Buyer's acceptance of these terms and conditions. Buyer will be deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions when at Seller's option, Buyer shall have given to Seller (orally or in writing) specifications of quality and/or type of products, shipment dates, shipping instructions, billing instructions or the like as to all or any part of the products described herein or on the face hereof; or the Buyer has received delivery of the whole or any part thereof; or the Buyer has received delivery of the whole or any part hereof; or the Buyer has otherwise assented to the terms and conditions hereof. NO ADDITIONAL TERMS OR DIFFERENT TERMS OR CONDITIONS SHALL BE BINDING UPON SELLER NOR CAN THE BUYER’S ACCEPTANCE LIMIT OR ALTER SELLER'S TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNLESS SPECIFICALLY AGREED TO IN WRITING SIGNED BY DULY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL OF THE SELLER. SELLER HEREBY OBJECTS TO ANY SUCH ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS CONTAINED IN ANY PURCHASE ORDER OR OTHER COMMUNICATIONS FROM BUYER. Any document received from Buyer which contains terms and conditions conflicting with Seller's documents shall not become part of the contract; only those terms and conditions as specified in Seller's documents shall be binding, unless otherwise modified in writing and no implied terms and conditions shall be substituted for Seller's terms and conditions to resolve any conflict. This contract and these terms and conditions shall constitute the entire agreement between Seller and Buyer and shall be governed by and shall be construed according to the internal laws of the State of Connecticut.
2. Delivery, Risk of Loss & Transportation Costs.
All products are sold F.O.B. Seller's location in Branford, Connecticut U.S.A. unless otherwise stated on the Seller's offer or counteroffer. Delivery of products to a carrier at Seller's location or other loading point shall constitute delivery to the Buyer; and regardless of shipping terms or freight payment all risk of loss or damage in transit shall be born by the Buyer. Method and route of shipment shall be at the discretion of Seller unless Buyer shall specify otherwise; any additional expenses of the method or route of shipment specified by Buyer shall be born entirely by Buyer.
3. Partial Shipments, Claims & Delays.
Seller reserves the right to make delivery in installments unless expressly stipulated within the offer. All such installments shall be separately invoiced and paid for when due per invoice, without regard to subsequent deliveries. Delay in deliveries of any installment shall not relieve Buyer of its obligations to accept remaining deliveries.
Claims for shortages or other errors in delivery must be made in writing to Seller within TEN (10) DAYS after receipt of shipment and failure to give such notice shall constitute unqualified acceptance and a waiver of all such claims by Buyer. Claims for loss or damage to products in transit shall be made to the carrier and not the Seller.
Seller shall not be liable for any delay due to any cause beyond Seller's reasonable control, including, without limitation, an act of God, act of the Buyer, embargo or other government act, regulation or request, fire, accident, strike, slow down, war, riot, delay in transportation, inability to obtain necessary labor, materials or manufacturing facility.

For customers with established credit, Terms are net thirty (30) days from date of shipment unless otherwise specified on invoice.

5. Taxes & Other Charges.
Any manufacturer's tax, retailer's occupation tax, sales tax, duty, custom, inspection or testing fee, or any other tax, fee or charge of any nature whatsoever imposed by any government authority on or measures by the transaction between Seller and Buyer shall be paid by Buyer in addition to the price quoted or invoiced. In the event the Seller is required to pay any such tax, fee or charge, the Buyer shall reimburse Seller. Therefore, in lieu of such payment the Buyer shall provide Seller at the time order is submitted with an exception certificate or other document acceptable to the authority imposing the same.
All references in these terms and conditions of sale to "products" includes all items which are manufactured by the Seller. Seller warrants products manufactured and/or distributed by it to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of THREE (3) YEARS from date of shipment. If within such period any such products shall be proven to Seller's satisfaction to be defective, such products shall be repaired, replaced or price refunded at Seller's option. Seller's obligation for nonperformance, defective products, or any damage caused by its products or their use, and Buyer's exclusive remedy therefore, shall be limited to such replacement or refund and shall be conditioned upon Seller receiving written notice, together with a demand for such replacement or refund THIRTY (30) DAYS after the date of shipment of such products.
This exclusive remedy shall not be deemed to have failed its essential purpose under any circumstances so long as Seller is willing and able to replace defective products or refund the purchase price within the time specified. SELLER'S PRICES ARE BASED ON THE POLICY LIMITING ITS LIABILITY. IF BUYER DESIRES FOR SELLER TO PROVIDE A WARRANTY GREATER THAN THAT WHICH IS STATED ABOVE, THEN THE SELLER WILL ADJUST UPWARDS THE PRICE FOR THE PRODUCTS DESCRIBED HEREIN OR ON THE FACE OF THE ORDER TO REFLECT THE ADDITIONAL EXPENSE TO BUYER WHICH SUCH A WARRANTY OBLIGATION WOULD CAUSE.
7. Disclaimers of Warranty & Liability.

Any description of the product given to the Buyer by the Seller is for the sole purpose of identifying it, is not part of the basis of that bargain and does not constitute a warranty that the product shall conform to that description. The use of any sample in connection with the sale is for illustrative purposes only, is not part of the basis of the bargain and is not to be construed as a warranty that the product will conform to that sample. None of the Seller's agents, employees, or manufacturer’s representatives have any authority to bind Seller to any affirmation, representation or warranty other than those stated herein.

It shall be the sole responsibility of the Buyer and/or user to comply with all federal, state and local rules and regulations concerning the use of products described in this quote or on the face of the order and shall not be the responsibility of the Seller.

If such products in such suit are held in and of themselves to infringe any valid United States patent, trademark or copyright then: a) Seller shall pay final award of damage in such suit attributable to such infringement, and (b) if in such suit, use of such products by Buyer is permanently enjoined by reason of such infringement, Seller shall: a) at its own expense and at its sole option, either (i) procure for Buyer the right to continue using the products, (ii) modify the products to render them non-infringing, (iii) replace the products with non-infringing products, (iv) refund the purchase price and the transportation costs paid by Buyer for the products.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller shall not be responsible for any compromise of settlement made without its written consent, or for infringements of combination or process patents covering the use of the products in combination with other products or materials not furnished by the Seller. The foregoing states the entire liability of Seller for infringement and in no event shall Seller be liable for consequential damages attributed to an infringement.
