1. Entire Agreement: These Terms and Conditions, together with any other written agreements between Stockmeier Urethanes U.S.A., Inc. (the “Company”) and Buyer comprise the entire agreement between the parties regarding the sale of the Company’s products to the Buyer. In any conflict between these Terms and Conditions and other written agreements, signed by both parties, which agreements relate to the sale of the Company’s products to the Buyer, those agreements shall govern. No additions to these Terms and Conditions, or any other agreement between the parties shall be valid unless signed by both parties. Any action on the part of the Buyer in furtherance of the purchase of the Company’s products shall constitute acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
2. Payment: The price for Product is the price in effect on the date of shipment, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. The Company may adjust the price of any Product upon at least ten (10) days prior notice. Payment for the full amount of each invoice shall be made to the Company, addressed as indicated on the invoice, denominated in U.S. Dollars. All claims by Buyer shall be made by written notice to the Company in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, and no offset or deduction from any invoice is permitted. Buyer shall be responsible for any tax, duty or charge levied by any governmental entity and based upon the purchase, by Buyer of the Company’s product(s).
3. Breach/Termination: Subject to exceptions contained herein, if either party breaches any non-monetary obligation created by these Terms and Conditions, or any other written agreement between the parties, and such breach shall continue for thirty (30) days, then the non-breaching party may defer any additional performance of obligations under these Terms and Conditions or any other written agreements between the parties, or may terminate the non-monetary obligations existing between the parties. If either party chooses to terminate the obligations it owes to the other party because of an on-going breach of these Terms and Conditions, or any other written agreement between the parties, then all sums owed by the Buyer to the Company shall become immediately due and payable. In addition, in the event that Buyer fails to make any payment when due, the Company shall have the right to offset any and all outstanding payment obligations or other indebtedness of Buyer to the Company against any outstanding payment obligations or other indebtedness that the Company may owe Buyer.
4. Force Majeure: Neither the Company nor Buyer shall be responsible for any delay or failure to make or take delivery of any Product due to any cause beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation (a) fire, storm, flood, strike, lockout, accident, act of war or terrorism, riot, civil commotion embargo, (b) any regulation, law, order or restriction of any governmental department, commission, board, bureau, agency, court, or other similar government instrumentality (“Governmental Authority”), or (c) inability of the Company to obtain any required raw material, energy source, equipment, labor or transportation, at prices and on terms the Company deems practicable from the Company’s usual sources of supply. Neither party is subject to any liability to the other for failing to perform during the period such inability exists. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, under no circumstances shall the Company be obligated to purchase Product from a third party for delivery to Buyer in the event of a force majeure. Quantities so affected may, at the option of either party, be eliminated from the obligations existing between the parties without liability, but the remaining obligations shall remain otherwise unaffected. A party’s obligation to render timely payment shall not be excused by this provision.
