General Terms and Conditions

1. Acceptance

These Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Agreement”) apply to all offers made and orders accepted by Datagate Systems, LLC (“Datagate”). Acceptance of your (“Buyer’s”) order is expressly conditioned upon Buyer's assent to these terms and conditions excluding all other terms and conditions.

Some of these terms may differ from those in Buyer’s order or offer, and some may be new. Datagate's failure to object to provisions contained in any communication from you (“Buyer”) does not waive the provisions of this Agreement.

Buyer's failure to reject this Agreement within 10 days after receipt, or upon Buyer's receipt of the goods or acceptance of the service, whichever occurs first, is Buyer's unconditional acceptance of these terms and conditions.

2. Credit Approval and Payment

Credit terms, shipments, deliveries, and performance of work are at all times subject to the approval of Datagate’s credit department. Datagate may at any time decline to make any shipment or delivery or perform any work except upon receipt of payment or satisfactory credit terms and security. In the event of Buyer’s bankruptcy or insolvency, Datagate will be entitled to terminate any order then outstanding and to receive reimbursement for Termination under this Agreement.

Payment terms for domestic orders are net 30 days from date of invoices by company check, certified funds, or electronic funds transfer. International orders are net 30 days or if required by Datagate an irrevocable letter of credit confirmed with Datagate's bank.

Each shipment is a separate and independent transaction and Buyer must pay accordingly.

If Buyer delays shipment, payments will be due on the date when Datagate is prepared to make the shipment. If Buyer delays Datagate's work, Buyer must pay based on the purchase price and the percentage of completion. Goods held for Buyer by Datagate are at the risk, expense, and in the title of Buyer.

6. Packing, Packaging, Inspection, Tests, and Return Authorization

Datagate provides commercial packing, packaging, and testing at the quoted prices. Any additional requirements, including without limitation Buyer's source inspection, are at Buyer's expense.

The goods under this Agreement are furnished with commercial inspection standards at the place of manufacture. If Datagate and Buyer agree that Buyer is to inspect at the place of manufacture, that inspection may not interfere unreasonably with Datagate's operations, and the Buyer must accept or reject the goods before shipment.

Buyer will promptly notify Datagate of nonconformance in the goods and give Datagate a reasonable opportunity to inspect the goods. No goods may be returned without Datagate's written authorization.

Failure to follow Datagate’s return procedures could result in lost goods, delays, additional service charges, warranty denial, or refusal of a shipment. Buyer must mark all goods returned to Datagate with a return authorization (RA) number furnished by Datagate. The RA number must appear on the shipping label and all paperwork associated with the return.

Granting a return authorization does not mean that a credit will be approved or that the evaluation or repair will take place without charge.

If Datagate determines that the goods are not covered by warranty (see Section 9, Limited Warranty), a purchase order for Datagate’s usual charges must be received before repair or replacement. Datagate reserves the right to dispose of the goods if the Buyer does not promptly pay the evaluation fee and related charges.

7. Export Compliance; Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)

For resale, export, or re-export of the goods, Buyer must comply with all applicable export regulations, export licensing requirements, and the U. S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd1 through 78dd3 as amended.

8. Delivery and Force Majeure

Shipping dates are approximate and require prompt receipt of all necessary information from Buyer. If delays arise, Datagate will notify Buyer and Datagate will not be liable for any damages (liquidated or otherwise), re-procurement costs, cover, or penalties. Datagate is not liable for delays due to weather conditions, acts of God, acts of civil or military authorities, fires, strikes, job actions, floods, earthquakes, epidemics, quarantine restriction, war, terrorism, riot, supplier or vendor delays, or any other causes beyond the reasonable control of Datagate. In the event of delay, Datagate will defer delivery for a period that accounts for the time lost because of the delay. If an excusable delay under force majeure continues for more than 6 months, Datagate and Buyer each may cancel the affected purchase orders under Section 10, Termination and Change Orders.

If Datagate's production is curtailed for any of the above reasons so that Datagate does not deliver the full amount ordered, Datagate may allocate production deliveries among its various customers then under contract for similar goods. The allocation will be commercially fair and reasonable and Datagate will notify Buyer of the estimated quota made available.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
