WHEREAS, CEVI MED is a supplier of used and refurbished medical office and clinic equipment; and WHEREAS, Purchaser desires to purchase from CEVI MED, and CEVI MED desires to sell to Purchaser, certain used and refurbished medical office/clinical equipment pursuant on the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms.
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants, terms and conditions set forth herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1.Terms Prevail Over Other Agreements. These Terms are the only terms that govern the sale of used and refurbished medical office/clinical equipment (the “Goods”) by CEVI MED to Purchaser. These Terms supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral, between the parties. These Terms shall prevail over any of Purchaser’s general terms and conditions of purchase regardless of whether or when Purchaser has submitted its purchase order or such terms.
2.Ordering Procedure. Purchaser shall issue to CEVI MED purchase orders (containing applicable terms that are consistent with these Terms) in written form.
By issuing a purchaser order to CEVI MED, Purchaser makes an offer to purchase Goods pursuant to these Terms and on no other terms. Purchaser shall be obligated to purchase from CEVI MED quantities of Goods specified in a purchase order.
3.Shipment. Unless otherwise expressly agreed to by the parties (in writing), CEVI MED shall select the method of shipment of and the carrier for the Goods. Any time quoted for delivery is an estimate only; provided, however, that CEVI MED shall use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver all Goods on or before the requested delivery date. CEVI MED shall not be liable for any delays, loss or damage of the Goods in transit. CEVI MED may, in its sole discretion, without liability or penalty, make partial shipments of Goods to Purchaser. Each shipment will constitute a separate sale and Purchaser shall pay for the Goods shipped. Purchaser shall pay for, and shall hold CEVI MED harmless from, all shipping charges and insurance costs. In addition, all prices for the Goods are exclusive of, and Purchaser is solely responsible for, and shall pay, and shall hold CEVI MED harmless from, all taxes, duties and fees with respect to, or measured by, the manufacture, sale, shipment, use or price of the Goods (including interest and penalties thereon).
4.International Product Shipment. a. If no international declaration or bill of lading is required for the Goods, CEVI MED will complete a standard resale invoice and clearly identify the “bill to” and “ship to” address for the Goods, in which case Purchaser shall ship the Goods for reuse domestically only. Should the Purchaser want to resell the equipment without retesting it, then the Purchaser shall provide CEVI MED, upon request, with evidence (such as letters of acknowledged receipt from the final-end users or pictures) to demonstrate the equipment is being reused appropriately by the final customer. If Purchaser intends to resell the Goods internationally, Purchaser shall be listed as the “Exporter of Record.” CEVI MED shall be listed as the Purchaser’s international “ship to” address on CEVI MED’s resale invoice and may direct-load overseas shipping containers or other vehicles with the resold Goods. CEVI MED shall be referred to as the “U.S. Principal Party in Interest” in these transactions. Prior to export of the Goods from the United States, CEVI MED must receive assurances that all paperwork is completed properly and that goods are exported in compliance with United States and applicable international law. b. For any Goods that are to be exported by Purchaser from the United States, any commercial invoices, bills of lading or air waybills shall contain the following language: “These commodities, technology, or software were exported from the United States in accordance with the Export Administration Regulations. Diversion contrary to U.S. law is prohibited.” c. Purchaser represents, warrants and covenants that every subsequent sale or transfer of the Goods is destined for direct reuse, and not for recycling (including repair) or disposal. Purchaser shall document and maintain (and provide copies to CEVI MED upon CEVI MED’s request): i. a copy of the contract, invoice or receipt relating to the sale and/or transfer of ownership or equipment, which states the name and address of the buyer/receiver, including country, that the equipment or components are fully functional, and that the equipment or components are being sold, donated and/or received for direct reuse; and ii. Bills of lading/waybills and/or other relevant shipping records, if shipping is involved, with both the buyer/receiver and seller/donor listed.
5.Audit Rights. Purchaser hereby grants CEVI MED access, upon reasonable notice, to Purchaser’s operations, facilities, books and records related to the Goods for the purpose of ensuring Purchaser’s compliance with the terms of this Agreement. Purchaser agrees to maintain all pertinent books and records for a period of two (2) years after expiration of these Terms. Purchaser further agrees to cooperate fully with CEVI MED with respect to all reasonable requests of CEVI MED relating to the foregoing access rights.
6.Compliance with Laws. Purchaser shall comply with all applicable laws, regulations and ordinances. Purchaser shall maintain in effect all of the licenses, permissions, authorizations, consents and permits that it needs to carry out its obligations under these Terms. Purchaser shall comply with all export and import laws of all countries involved in the sale of the Goods under these Terms or any resale of the Goods by Purchaser. Purchaser assumes all responsibility for shipments of Goods requiring any government import clearance.
7.Payment Terms. Purchaser shall pay all invoiced amounts due to CEVI MED within 5 days from the date of CEVI MED's invoice, and prior to when the equipment is refurbished and shipped from CEVI MED. Purchaser shall pay interest on all late payments at the lesser of the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permissible under applicable law, calculated daily and compounded monthly. Purchaser shall reimburse CEVI MED for all costs incurred in collecting any late payments, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees. Purchaser shall not withhold payment of any amounts due and payable by reason of any set-off of any claim or dispute with CEVI MED, whether relating to CEVI MED's breach, bankruptcy or otherwise.

IN NO EVENT SHALL CEVI MED'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE TOTAL OF THE AMOUNTS PAID TO CEVI MED FOR THE GOODS SOLD HEREUNDER.
