GENERAL TERMS FOR THE SALE OF GOODS
- The supply and sale of goods by Datalogic ADC ("Datalogic") is subject to the following standard terms and conditions unless expressly modified in writing by Datalogic and the Buyer (collectively the "Parties"). The final and entire agreement pertaining to the sale of goods to Buyer by Datalogic is set forth herein; any prior understandings, agreements, and representations, oral or written, shall be deemed superseded and merged in this contract. Any typographical, clerical, or other errors or omissions in any sales literature, catalogues, quotations, price lists, offers, invoices, manuals, or any other document issued by Datalogic shall be corrected without any liability to Datalogic. Agents and salespersons of Datalogic have no authority to make any representations not included herein. Datalogic hereby rejects any different or additional terms previously or hereafter proposed by the Buyer, none of which shall be effective unless embodied in a writing signed by an authorized employee of Datalogic.
The goods and other items or services covered by these term and conditions shall be sold and invoiced at Datalogic's prices and charges in effect at the time of each shipment of goods. Datalogic reserves the right to change, without notice, the published list prices referenced on any purchase order or the face of this contract. Prices do not include sales, excise, use, or other taxes now in effect or hereafter levied by reason of this transaction. The Buyer shall pay all such taxes.
- Payment Terms
- i.Payment terms are net thirty (30) days from the date of invoice. All payments must be made without set-off, counterclaim, withholding or other deduction. Datalogic reserves the right to require alternative payment terms, including, without limitation Sight Draft, Letter of Credit, or Payment in Advance. If shipments are delayed by the Buyer, payment shall be made based on the contract price and percentage of completion. Buyer shall be liable for the price of all products substantially conforming to the contract, notwithstanding that the Buyer may not have accepted, or may have revoked acceptance of those products.
- ii.If payment is not received by the due date, a service charge will be added at the rate of 1.5% per month (18% per year) or the maximum legal rate, whichever is less, to unpaid invoices from the due date thereof.
- iii.Remittances will be received by a bank simply as clearing agency. The receiving bank has no authority to determine whether the amount remitted constitutes payment in full. Remittances marked to indicate payment in full will be deposited by the bank notwithstanding such markings and such deposit shall not indicate Datalogic’s acceptance of the remittance as payment in full unless the remittance actually constitutes payment of all sums owed.
Datalogic may, at any time, and in its sole discretion, limit or cancel Buyer’s credit as to time and amount and as a consequence may (1) demand payment in cash before delivery of any unfilled portion of this contract; and (2) demand assurance of Buyer's due performance. Upon making such demand, Datalogic may suspend production, shipment, and/or deliveries, If, within the period stated in such demand, but in no event longer than 30 (thirty) days, the Buyer fails to agree and comply with such different payment terms, and/or fails to give adequate assurance of due performance, Datalogic may (a) by notice to Buyer, treat such failure or refusal as a repudiation by the Buyer of the portion of the contract not then fully performed, whereupon Datalogic may cancel all further deliveries and any amounts unpaid hereunder shall immediately become due and payable; or (b) make shipments under reservation of a security interest and demand payment against tender of documents of title. If Datalogic retains a collection agency and/or attorney to collect overdue amounts, all collection costs, including attorney's fees, shall be payable by the Buyer. Buyer hereby represents to Datalogic that the Buyer is now solvent and agrees that each acceptance of delivery of the goods sold hereunder shall constitute reaffirmation of this representation at such time.
- Several Shipments
Datalogic may make delivery in installments and may render a separate invoice for each installment, which shall be paid when due, without regard to subsequent deliveries. Each installment shall be deemed a separate sale. Delay in delivery of any installment shall not relieve the Buyer of its obligation to accept delivery of remaining installments. Any delivery not in dispute shall be paid for on its due date, as provided in this contract, without offset defense or counterclaim and regardless of controversies relating to other deliveries or undelivered products.
- Transportation, Title, Risk of Loss, Insurance
Shipment shall be Ex Works (EXW) place of shipment.

If a strike, embargo, governmental action, or any other cause beyond Datalogic's control prevents shipment or delivery to Buyer or his agent, or if shipping instructions for any shipment are not received before shipment date, or if payment is to be made on or before delivery, title and risk of loss shall pass to Buyer as soon as the shipment has been set aside by Datalogic and invoiced to Buyer (subject to Datalogic's rights as an unpaid Datalogic) and payment shall be made in accordance with invoice as though the goods had been shipped and accepted by Buyer and Datalogic shall be under no duty to carry insurance thereafter.
- Consigned Goods
Buyer acknowledges that certain goods provided by Datalogic may be supplied on a consignment basis. In the event any goods are designated on the face of this form as consigned goods, then Buyer agrees to execute all documents provided by Datalogic necessary to effectuate the consignor-consignee relationship and, in addition to any terms and conditions of consignment, specifically agrees that Datalogic shall retain title to all consigned goods until such time as Buyer sells such goods to its Buyers, at which time title shall pass directly from Datalogic to the respective Buyers. Buyer shall keep a current and accurate inventory and record of all consigned goods and shall permit Datalogic or Datalogic's representative to inspect said records and said goods at any reasonable time upon demand.

- ii. Buyer shall be deemed to have accepted any product and Buyer's right to cancel, reject, or claim any damages for breach of warranty or breach of Datalogic's obligation under this contract shall cease, unless Buyer gives Datalogic notice in writing of Datalogic's breach: (a) in the case of defects discoverable through inspection, 14 (fourteen) days after arrival of the shipment or (b) in the case of defects not discoverable through inspection, 30 (thirty) days after invoice date.
- iii. In the case of nonconforming goods, Buyer shall immediately notify Datalogic whether Buyer will continue to accept similarly nonconforming goods. Acceptance of any nonconforming goods shall constitute a waiver by Buyer of specification requirements for said goods.
- iv. In any event, when the product shall have been altered from its original state, Buyer shall be deemed to have accepted the product. Buyer's acceptance of goods tendered under this contract shall be final and irrevocable.
Datalogic will use every reasonable effort to effect shipment on or before the date indicated. Datalogic shall not be liable, directly or indirectly, for any delay or failure in performance or delivery or inability to perform or delivery where such delay, failure, or inability arises or results from any cause beyond Datalogic's control or beyond the control of Datalogic's suppliers or contractors, including, but not limited to, strike, boycott, or other labor disputes, embargo, governmental regulation, inability or delay in obtaining materials.

- Warranty Coverage

Datalogic’s liability under this warranty is limited to furnishing the labor and parts necessary to remedy any defect covered by this warranty and restore the product to its normal operating condition. Repair or replacement of product during the warranty does not extend the original warranty term. Products are sold on the basis of specifications applicable at the time of manufacture and Datalogic has no obligation to modify or update products once sold. The warranty period shall extend from the date of shipment from Datalogic for the duration published by Datalogic for the product at the time of purchase (“Warranty Period”).
If, during the Warranty Period, Datalogic determines that a product has defects in material or workmanship, Datalogic shall, at its sole option repair or replace the product without additional charge for parts and labor, or give a credit for the defective products duly returned to Datalogic. To perform repairs, Datalogic may use new or reconditioned parts, components, subassemblies or products that have been tested as meeting applicable specifications for equivalent new material and products. Buyer will allow Datalogic to scrap all parts removed from the repaired product. Datalogic warrants repaired hardware devices only, against defects in workmanship and materials on the repaired assembly for a 90 day period starting from the date of shipment of the repaired product from Datalogic or until the expiration of the original Warranty Period, whichever is longer. Datalogic does not guarantee, and it is not responsible for, the maintenance of, damage to, or loss of configurations, data, and applications on the repaired units and at its sole discretion can return the units in the “factory default” configuration or with any software or firmware update available at the time of the repair (may be newer than the firmware or software installed during the manufacture of the product). Buyer accepts responsibility to maintain a backup copy of its software and data.

(iv) any claimed defect or damage caused by the use of product with any other instrument, equipment or apparatus;
(v) any claimed defect or damage caused by the failure to provide proper maintenance, including but not limited to cleaning the upper window in accordance with product manual or the replacement of upper window/cartridge due to scratching, stain or other degradation;

11. Warranty Claim Process
In order to obtain service under this Warranty, Buyer must notify Datalogic (which notice shall be in writing sent by registered courier or mail) of the claimed defect before the expiration of the Warranty period and obtain from Datalogic a return authorization number for return of the product to designated Datalogic service center. Buyer shall offer Datalogic the opportunity to investigate the claim and to inspect the allegedly defective products. Failure to offer Datalogic such opportunity shall constitute acceptance by Buyer and waiver of all claims for defects.

If Datalogic determines Buyer’s claim is valid, Datalogic will repair or replace product without additional charge for parts and labor.
