Terms & Conditions

1. General. This purchase order (“Order”) and the Blanket Purchase Agreement (“Blanket Agreement”), where applicable, contain the entire agreement between the Supplier (“Supplier”) and Teobyte Inc. (“Teobyte”) regarding the purchase and sale of the products covered by this Order (“Products”). Supplier shall issue to Teobyte a written acknowledgment of this Order within three (3) business days of receipt thereof.

2. Price and Payment. (a) This Order shall be filled at the prices shown on the front side hereof or, if the parties have entered into a Blanket Agreement, the lower of the prices shown on this Order and those shown in Exhibit A of the Blanket Agreement shall apply. (b) If Supplier decreases prices for any items to be furnished hereunder, the price of all unshipped items shall be adjusted to the lower prices. (c) Supplier shall issue to Teobyte a separate invoice for each Order bearing the Teobyte purchase order number. Supplier shall invoice no earlier than the day of shipment. Payment terms are as stipulated on the front side hereof. In the absence of payment terms stated on the front side of this Order, payment of invoices by Teobyte shall be Net Sixty (60) days from Teobyte’s receipt of an invoice consistent with the terms of this Order or, if applicable, the Blanket Agreement. If payment is made within ten (10) days of Teobyte’s receipt of such invoice, Teobyte may deduct two percent (2%) from the amount due as a prompt payment discount. Unless shipping and other charges are itemized, any discount will be taken on the full amount of invoices. Supplier shall issue credit within three (3) business days, for any agreed upon shortage or rejection of goods. Supplier shall issue a revised invoice to v that clearly shows all credits applied. Supplier is entitled to request samples as a part of such adjudication. (d) Unless otherwise provided herein, prices shown on this Order are inclusive of all taxes with respect to the sale to Teobyte of Products. Teobyte shall not be liable for any tax unless the amount of such tax is separately stated in the written acknowledgment of this Order required by Paragraph 1 hereof. Supplier shall not add any taxes to the price of Products which Teobyte is entitled to purchase on an exempt basis, provided that Teobyte provides Supplier with such exemption certificates or similar documents as required by law to effect exempt purchases. Supplier will provide Teobyte with such documentation as Teobyte requires in order to claim tax credits, refunds, rebates or similar relief for taxes charged to Teobyte.

3. Delivery and Shipping. (a) A delivery schedule is specified in this Order. In the event the specified delivery schedule is judged by Supplier to be unreasonable, Supplier may reject this Order by delivering written notice of its rejection to Teobyte within three (3) business days from Supplier’s receipt of such Order; provided, however, that Supplier shall work with Teobyte in good faith to mutually agree upon a reasonable delivery schedule. Any Order not rejected in accordance with the foregoing sentence shall be deemed accepted by Supplier. (b) Supplier shall use a carrier that has been designated by Teobyte to ship the Products under this Order. The Products are to be suitably packed or otherwise prepared by Supplier for shipment so as to secure the lowest transportation rates and to meet the carrier’s requirements. No charges will be allowed for such packing or preparation unless otherwise stated on this Order. Supplier shall deliver or arrange for the delivery of the Products as per Teobyte’s instructions to Teobyte's facility in Vancouver, WA or to such other address as shall be specified by Teobyte in this Order. In the absence of delivery terms on the front side of this document to the contrary, delivery shall be FCA (Free Carrier Incoterms 2010) to Teobyte's facility in Vancouver, WA.

4. Title and Risk of Loss. Title to the Products shall pass to Teobyte once the delivery of the Products is effected in accordance with the terms hereof and, if applicable, the terms of a Blanket Agreement, except if the Products are rejected by Teobyte under this Order.

5. Acceptance. (a) All Products shall be subject to final inspection and acceptance by Teobyte. (b) If Teobyte determines that any Products are defective or do not meet specifications (either before acceptance or under the terms of paragraph 5 hereof), Teobyte shall have the right, at its sole option, to (i) reject such Products and obtain a refund of the purchase price and any shipping charges, or (ii) require repair or replacement of the Products by and at the Supplier’s expense and risk. If Supplier fails to repair or replace defective Products within sixty (60) days after Teobyte’s request thereof, Teobyte may, at its sole option (i) without further notice, terminate this Order for default in accordance with Paragraph 6 hereof, or (ii) require an appropriate reduction in the purchase price. (c) Payment for any Products hereunder shall not be deemed acceptance thereof. Failure to inspect the Products shall not be deemed to constitute (i) acceptance of any defective or nonconforming Products, or (ii) a waiver of Teobyte’s rights or remedies arising by virtue of any defect or nonconformity with the requirements of this Order.

6. Cancellation for Default. (a) This Order may be terminated by Teobyte at any time if Supplier breaches any material obligation provided hereunder or under the Blanket Agreement, if applicable, and Supplier fails to cure such breach within fifteen (15) days of receipt of a written or electronic notice of such breach. (b) If Supplier, at any time, determines that it will be or will likely be unable to fulfill this Order for any reason, Supplier shall immediately notify Teobyte in writing and specify a proposed completion date and reason for inability to meet agreed upon delivery date(s). In the event the proposed completion date is unacceptable to Teobyte, Teobyte may cancel this Order without penalty or charge to Teobyte.

7. Cancellation Without Cause. Teobyte may, without liability, by notice to Supplier, no more than ten (10) days after date of order, cancel the whole or any part of this Order. Where notice of cancellation is given more than ten (10) days after date of order, Teobyte agrees in such instance to pay Supplier all verified, reasonable, non‑recoverable out-of-pocket costs for Teobyte unique raw materials and works in process incurred by Supplier for the ordered Products under the cancelled Order, but only to the extent that (a) such raw materials unique to Teobyte and works in process cannot be reasonably used by Supplier in fulfilling subsequent Teobyte Orders and (b) provided that the Supplier is not at fault pursuant to the Order.
