3. ACCEPTANCE, CANCELLATIONS, AND RETURNS:

No order for Goods placed by a buyer (“Buyer”) shall be binding on Seller unless and until accepted by Seller.  Seller reserves the right to reject any order for any reason.  Once submitted to Seller, an order may not be changed or cancelled by Buyer unless such change or cancellation is expressly agreed to in writing by an authorized, representative of Seller.  Any such agreement to change or cancel an order will be conditioned upon Buyer paying a 10% change or cancellation charge intended to compensate Seller for costs incurred, including, but not limited to, administration costs, storage and shipping costs, costs of producing non-standard items, costs incurred in purchasing materials, change or cancellation costs imposed on Seller by its suppliers, disposal costs incurred in disposing of Products in accordance with law, and any other cost resulting from a change or cancellation of an order placed by Buyer.

Upon Buyer’s receipt of Goods, Buyer shall immediately inspect the same and shall notify Seller in writing within ten (10) business days of delivery of any claims for shortages, defects, damages, deficiencies, or quality concerns.  If Buyer shall fail to notify Seller within said 10 business day period, such Goods shall conclusively be deemed to conform to their respective specifications and to have been irrevocably accepted by Buyer.  Seller shall not be liable to Buyer for any losses or damages resulting from a late delivery or from Seller’s failure to perform due to any cause beyond Seller’s reasonable control.  In no event shall Buyer commence any action under this Agreement later than one year after the cause of action has occurred.

Once accepted by Buyer, Goods may not be returned for credit except Seller’s prior agreement, and then only in strict compliance with Seller’s instructions.  Any returned items will be subject to a restocking fee, disposal fee, or rework fee of 10%.  Under no circumstances will Seller accept a return from any customer for special order Products or any Products that are in a non-saleable condition.

Blanket (standing) Orders may be accepted by Seller on behalf of Buyer under which Goods will be delivered, from time to time, pursuant to an agreed upon schedule.  Once a Blanket Order has been accepted, however, Buyer will not be permitted to cancel or change such Blanket Order without Seller’s prior written agreement.  All blanket orders will be invoiced according to the delivery schedule in place at the time of the Order, or as releases against the Order occur.  Seller shall have the further right to cease delivering Goods under any such Blanket Order and to require payment in advance at any time that Seller, in its sole discretion, determines that there is any doubt regarding the ability to collect on an invoice.
