DNOW L. P. and its AFFILIATES TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE

 (Unless Otherwise Specified in Writing)

NET DUE 30 DAYS FROM DATE OF INVOICE

 

 

These Terms and Conditions are part of the purchase order printed on the other side of this form or the purchase order attached to these Terms and Conditions (collectively "Order"). No terms or conditions, other than those stated herein, and no agreement or understanding, oral or written, in any way purporting to modify this Order, whether contained in Buyer’s purchase or shipping release form, or elsewhere, shall be binding on DNOW L.P., its affiliates, parents or subsidiary entities (“Seller”) and any such attempted modifications are hereby rejected by Seller. All proposals, negotiations and representations, if any, made prior, and with reference hereto, are merged herein and superseded hereby.

1. Payment and Taxes: Payment shall be made at par in legal tender of the United States of America and all charges are payable within net 30 days of the date of invoice.  The amount of compensation payable to Seller shall be that set forth in Seller’s current price book at the time services are performed, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties.  Prices quoted by Seller do not include sales, VAT, use or similar taxes and such taxes, where applicable shall be added to the quoted prices and invoiced accordingly.  All Orders are subject to the continued review of the Seller and if, in its opinion, the financial position of the Buyer has so changed prior to delivery as to render the Seller insecure, the Seller may suspend production and/or refuse to make delivery pending satisfactory modification of the terms of payment.  In the event that Buyer’s account with Seller becomes delinquent, Seller has the right to revoke any and all discounts previously applied in arriving at the net invoice price.  Upon revocation, the full invoice price without discount shall become immediately due and owing and subject to collection, with interest at the maximum rate allowed by law.  If in the event it becomes necessary to place the account in the hands of an attorney for collection, Buyer agrees to pay reasonable attorney’s fees incurred by the Seller. All federal, state, dominion, provincial or municipal taxes now or hereafter imposed in respect to the goods sold by the Seller and/or the processing, manufacture, delivery, transportation and/or proceeds of the goods herein specified shall be for the account of the Buyer and if taxes are required to be paid by the Seller, the amount thereof shall be added to and become part of the price payable by the Buyer.

2. Delivery terms: All quotations and sales are EXW Seller’s premises (INCOTERMS 2010) unless otherwise specified on the face hereof.  Seller’s responsibility ceases upon delivery to carrier and title shall transfer and risk of loss shall be borne by Buyer at that point.  Any expedited or other premium transportation charges requested by Buyer will be for the account of Buyer.  A minimum shipping and handling charge shall apply on any order of less than $500.00.  Prices are subject to adjustment to reflect the Seller’s prices in effect at time of shipment.  No claims for price adjustments will be honored unless presented within one year from date of invoice.  All quotations are subject to change without notice and prior to sale of goods. 

3. Warranties:

a)         Goods: in the event any goods manufactured by Seller and furnished hereunder are found to be defective or otherwise fail to conform to the conditions of this Order, Seller will, at its option, either: (1) replace the goods at the delivery point specified herein, (2) repair the goods, or (3) refund the purchase price.  Buyer's remedies with respect to goods manufactured by others and furnished hereunder that are found to be defective or otherwise not in conformity with the Order are limited to any warranties extended and honored by the manufacturer.  Buyer's remedies are limited as aforesaid regardless of whether Buyer's claim is based on principles of contract or tort.  All claims must be made promptly following delivery of the goods to the Buyer within one year from date of delivery.  Seller must be given a reasonable opportunity to investigate.  NEITHER SELLER NOR THE MANUFACTURER OF THE GOODS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR OTHER CLAIMS ARISING FROM ANY BREACH OF CONTRACT OR TORT COMMITTED BY SELLER OR THE MANUFACTURER OF GOODS RESOLD BY SELLER.  Seller's total cumulative liability in any way arising from or pertaining to any products sold or required to be sold under this Order, shall not in any case exceed the purchase price paid by Buyer of such product.

b)         Services: with respect to any work performed on goods furnished by Buyer (including but not limited to repairing, welding, machining, fabricating, heat treating, and forging) Seller agrees to make every effort to perform such work in accordance with Buyer's specifications.  Claims must be made promptly following delivery of the goods to Buyer, but must be made within three months from the date the same is put into operation and, in any event, not more than one year after date of delivery.  Seller must be given a reasonable opportunity to investigate.  It is understood and agreed that the reports, records, etc., made by Seller as to the results of its services shall be the good faith opinions only of Seller and are not to be construed as warranties or guarantees, express or implied, of quality, classification, merchantability or fitness of purpose. Seller shall have no liability for special, indirect, consequential, incidental or other damages arising from any breach of contract or tort.

c)          Rental:  Buyer confirms that it has selected the Rental equipment and each part thereof on the basis of its own sole judgment and expressly disclaims reliance upon any statements, representations or warranties made by Seller, and Buyer acknowledges that Seller is not a manufacturer, vendor or consultant of any part of the Rental equipment. Buyer specifically understands and agrees that Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy for breach of warranty, tortious conduct, or any other cause of action against Seller or Seller’s officers, agents, or employees, if any, shall be limited to the repair or replacement of the Rental equipment or any defective parts at Seller’s discretion and at Seller’s regular place of business or at such other place of business designated by Seller during normal working hours.

d)         THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE DESCRIPTION ON THE FACE HEREOF.  THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN EXPRESSLY AND IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THOSE FOR MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE DISCLAIMED.  BUYER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT BUYER TAKES SOLE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SELECTION OF AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE GOODS AND THEIR FITNESS FOR ANY PURPOSES INTENDED BY THE BUYER OR BUYER’S CUSTOMER(S).

4. Cancelation and cancelation fees: Orders placed by Buyer and accepted by Seller may be canceled only with the written consent of Seller and will subject Buyer to cancellation charges.  Any and all of Seller’s documents, drawings and like information shall be returned to Seller upon Buyer’s request for cancellation. No Orders may be canceled subsequent to delivery and/or shipment, whichever occurs first. As estimated actual damages, Buyer agrees to pay Seller the greater of Seller's actual costs incurred prior to cancellation plus a reasonable profit, or the following minimum cancellation charges:  a) 20% of Order value if canceled thirty (30) or more days prior to the original delivery/shipment date; b) 50% of the Order value if canceled thereafter; or,  c) 100% of the Order value of any non-standard items, which are items not built for stock or built to Buyer specifications.  For rental, minimum rental charges as stated in the Seller proposal will apply.  Buyer shall verify the amount of the cancellation charges prior to canceling an Order.

5. Patent infringement liability: Seller shall indemnify Buyer from claims arising from patent infringement only when the basis of such claim is for goods:  (a) solely manufactured by Seller and (b) used in their normal manner.

6. Liens: Seller shall not protect, defend, indemnify, release or hold harmless Buyer from any claim or lien attaching to the property or equipment of Buyer arising out of Buyer’s failure to pay Seller.

7. Force Majeure: In the event of any delay in Seller’s performance due to fire, explosion, strike, shortage of utility, facility, material or labor, delay in transportation, breakdown or accident, compliance with any other action taken to carry out the intent or purpose of any law or regulation, or other causes beyond Seller’s control, Seller shall not be liable for any damages or losses due to any such causes.  Seller uses reasonable efforts to ship within the time specified, but cannot guarantee timely delivery and shall not be liable for any damages caused by delay in delivery, irrespective of the cause of delay.

8. Confidentiality: Buyer agrees to keep confidential all Seller proprietary and confidential information provided whether patentable, copyrightable, or not.  Buyer acknowledges that Seller’s ownership of, development of, and protection of its proprietary and confidential information is an integral part of Seller’s business.  Buyer agrees that it will not use or allow the use of any technology or know-how supplied by Seller, or otherwise obtained from Seller to replicate Seller’s equipment and Buyer agrees that it will not attempt to analyze, reverse-engineer, or otherwise ascertain the composition or manufacture of Seller’s products.   All materials, products, technology, know-how, and intellectual property developed by, created by, or invented by Seller as a part of this Order are and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Seller without limitations.

9. Inspection: inspection of goods, if agreed to, must be made at Seller’s warehouse or point of manufacture and such inspection and acceptance shall be final.  Reasonable facilities will be afforded to inspectors representing Buyer to make such inspection and to apply tests in accordance with the specifications to which Seller has previously agreed, prior to shipment from warehouse or plants of Seller or Seller’s suppliers. Any inspections are at Buyer’s sole cost and risk.
