Terms of Service
ENTROPY PRECISION SYSTEM, INC. TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE
DELIVERY AND PERFORMANCE-Time is of the essence. Deliveries are to be made in the quantities and at times specified by the Purchase Order. Entropy has no liability to pay for or return goods delivered to Entropy in excess of quantities specified by the Purchase Order.
WARRANTIES-In addition to all warranties provided by law, Seller expressly warrants that all goods and services covered hereby conform to specifications, drawings, samples or other descriptions furnished by Seller or specified by Entropy. Goods must be merchantable, of good material and workmanship and free from defects, and if so identified by Entropy, fit and sufficient for Entropy’s purposes. Entropy’s approval of specifications, drawings, samples or other descriptions furnished by Seller does not relieve Seller of its obligations under these warranties but survive any inspection. Acceptance or payment by Entropy for goods and services later found to be defective or non-conforming does not relieve Seller of its obligations under these warranties for the benefit of Entropy, its successors, assigns, customers and users of the goods or services covered hereby.
CANCELLATION-Entropy has the right to cancel all or any part of an Purchase Order without liability if (A) Seller does not make deliveries as specified, (B) Seller’s lack of progress endangers timely performance, (C) Seller breaches any of the terms hereof, or (D) Seller becomes insolvent or any insolvency proceeding is filed by or against Seller.
Entropy may terminate all or any part of this Purchase Order for convenience at any time by written notice to Seller. Upon such termination, Purchaser’s liability will be limited to reasonable termination charges mutually agreed upon by Seller and Purchaser, provided that Seller must specify any proposed charges in writing within fifteen (15) days after termination.
CHANGES-At any time, Entropy reserves the right to make changes to this Purchase Order, including changes to drawings, designs, configurations, specifications, quantities, methods of shipment or packing and delivery schedules or locations of delivery. If such changes cause an increase or decrease in the cost of or the time required for the performance of any work under this Purchase Order, an equitable adjustment will be made in the contract price or delivery schedule, or both, and the Purchase Order will be modified in writing accordingly.
INSPECTION-All goods received are subject to Entropy’s inspection for defective or non-conforming goods. Defective or non-conforming goods are held at Seller’s expense and risk and, if Seller so directs, will be returned at Seller’s expense.
INVOICING-Invoices containing the information specified in Entropy’s Purchase Order Requirements instructions must be promptly sent to Entropy. No interest will be paid on invoices tendered for goods. Payment terms are calculated from the Seller’s invoice date provided the goods are received. When invoices subject to discount are not sent electronically on day of shipment, the discount period begins on the date the invoice is received.
ENTROPY’S MATERIALS AND TOOLING-All of Entropy’s tooling, goods or other property in Seller’s possession is held by Seller as bailee for hire. Entropy’s materials are to be kept separate and clearly identified by Seller as Entropy’s property. Seller agrees that all such materials not consumed in the performance of the Purchase Order remain the property of Entropy and will be held until Entropy otherwise directs Seller. Seller agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Entropy from and against all claims for injury or damage to Seller, its employees or others, arising out of or in connection with the presence or use of such materials whether such injury or damage is caused by defects in such material, Entropy’s negligence or otherwise. Unless otherwise stated on the Purchase Order, Seller at its own expense will furnish, keep in good condition, insure and replace when necessary all tooling and other materials necessary for the performance of this Purchase Order. If Seller uses special tooling relating principally to this Purchase Order, Entropy at any time may purchase and take possession of such special tooling for the unamortized cost thereof.
ENTROPY’S PROPRIETARY INFORMATION-Seller may not use or disclose any of Entropy’s trade secrets, confidential information or intellectual property whether or not designated as such except as required to fill this Purchase Order. All inventions or ideas whether patentable or not made by Seller incident to this Purchase Order become the exclusive property of Entropy. If Seller and Entropy have entered into a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which cover disclosure of the confidential information under the Purchase Order, and if the term of the NDA expires before the expiration or termination of the Purchase Order, then the term of the NDA is automatically extended to match the term of the Purchase Order. Seller agrees that the terms, conditions and existence of the Purchase Order are Confidential Information as defined in the NDA.
PATENT INFRINGEMENT-Seller agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Entropy from any loss or damage sustained by Entropy from and against all claims asserted against Nu- Way, its customers and users for infringement of any patent, trademark, copyright or other proprietary right by reason of the use or sale of the goods or services in the Purchase Order. If the use or sale of the goods is held to infringe any such rights, Seller must at its own expense either procure for Entropy, its customers and users the right to continue using or selling said goods or services or replace them with non-infringing goods or services.
