GENERAL. The following Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Terms and Conditions”) shall govern all sales of goods or services (“Goods” or “Services”) provided by ORR Protection Systems, Inc. (“ORR”) to any buyer or end-user with whom ORR undertakes to deal (the “Customer”). These Terms and Conditions apply to the exclusion of all inconsistent, modifying or varying terms or conditions offered or relied on by the Customer. All sales by ORR are expressly limited to and made conditional upon Customer’s assent to the Terms and Conditions which may only be modified by written agreement duly signed by an authorized executive of ORR. No other representative, distributor, dealer or employee of ORR has the authority to bind ORR. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and Conditions and those contained in the body of ORR’s proposal, these Terms and Conditions shall prevail.
PRICE. The Price is exclusive of all sales, use and other governmental charges and taxes relating to the production, shipment or purchase of Goods or Services hereunder, and shall be payable by Customer directly to the appropriate governmental agency. All Services shall be performed during regular business hours. In the event Customer requests performance at any other time, an additional amount shall be billed and paid by Customer, over and above the agreed upon contract Price, as compensation for overtime wages and for other expenses occasioned thereby.
PAYMENT. Payment shall be due and payable thirty (30) days from invoice date. Past due accounts are subject to a late fee of one and one-half percent (1½%) per month or the highest rate permitted by law. Acceptance of payment on any past due amounts shall not be deemed a waiver of any rights ORR may have against Customer for late payment. Supplier may demand assurance of Customer’s ability to pay whenever it reasonably appears that such ability is in doubt.
DELIVERY/TRANSFER OF RISK/TITLE.
Goods to be installed by ORR shall be delivered CIP Customer’s nominated domestic location, freight prepaid and added at actual cost (Incoterms 2010).
Goods that are not to be installed by ORR shall be delivered CIP ORR’s shipping location (Incoterms 2010).
Title shall pass upon transfer of risk of loss.
The Goods provided are manufactured by other parties and are warranted by those manufacturers against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of time depending on the Goods. To the extent allowed by contract, law or otherwise, ORR will pass through to Customer any and all warranties that are in effect for Goods purchased. Customer’s sole remedy for defective Goods shall be those afforded through the manufacturer’s warranty. ORR will administer the manufacturer’s warranty.
Services will be performed with reasonable care and skill ordinarily exercised by others in similar professions, under similar circumstances. If Customer notifies ORR within 90 days of the date of performance of defects in Services, then ORR, at its sole election, will either re-perform the Services or return the Price paid for them. In the event ORR’s investigation or inspection reveals no defect, ORR’s regular charges for any and all repairs shall apply. This warranty does not cover defects arising from Customer’s misuse, abuse, neglect or improper handling.
ORR MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, UNLESS OTHERWISE SET FORTH IN WRITING AND SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED OFFICER OF ORR. ANY OTHER WARRANTIES OF ANY NATURE INCONSISTENT WITH THOSE SPECIFIED HEREUNDER, WHETHER MADE BY A SALESPERSONS, REPRESENTATIVE, DISTRIBUTOR, DEALER AND/OR EMPLOYEE OF ORR SHALL NOT CONSTITUTE A WARRANTY, SHALL NOT BE RELIED UPON BY CUSTOMER AND ARE NOT A PART OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
DELAYS. Customer shall provide ORR access to the worksite premises, facilities and equipment necessary for ORR to timely perform the work. ORR shall be free to start and stop all primary equipment incidental to ORR’s performance of the work, as arranged with customer’s representative.

All rights and remedies of ORR shall be cumulative and may be exercised from time to time, either consecutively or concurrently. ORR and Customer agree that any Goods not normally carried in ORR’s inventory or that cannot be readily resold at a reasonable price, purchased by ORR in complete or partial fulfillment of Customer’s order, shall be deemed identified to the contract between ORR and Customer. ORR shall be entitled, to the extent allowed by law, to reasonable attorneys’ fees, allowable court costs, and other costs incurred in connection with enforcement of any terms and conditions hereunder.
