1. PURCHASE PRICE AND COSTS. The quoted purchase price (“Purchase Price”) does not include the cost of any services related to, or which may be required for, the goods identified on the attached quotation (“Product”), nor does it include any taxes, freight and other shipping charges, insurance, or any special packing charges. All such additional expenses shall be added to the Purchase Price and shall be solely the responsibility of Customer. Customer shall pay all taxes required to be collected by Telpar which are based upon the Purchase Price, including, but not limited to, federal, state and local sales or use taxes. Unless set forth in a valid firm written quotation from Telpar, prices of the Product may be changed by Telpar based upon the date of release and/or shipment of the order, announced increases in Telpar’s list prices, or increases in labor and material costs.
2. CANCELLATION AND RESTOCKING FEE. If Telpar permits Customer to return (in accordance with Section 5 or otherwise) or cancel an order for Product and such return was not covered under any warranty applicable to the Product, then Telpar reserves the right to assess a restocking fee equal to the greater of twenty-five percent (25%) of the Purchase Price for such Product or the actual costs and expenses incurred by Telpar related to the purchase order and return of the Product, including, without limitation, costs related to handling, transportation, repackaging, or any other charges required or necessary to return these items to “like new” condition. Upon inspection of the returned Product, the aforementioned restocking fee will be deducted from any refund due to Customer.
Customer may not return Custom Product orders, including, without limitation, custom designed OEM/manufactured Telpar Products. Once accepted by Telpar, an order may be cancelled or delayed by Customer only upon written consent of Telpar. If Telpar consents to any such cancellation or delay, then Customer may be required to pay such amount as Telpar, in its sole discretion, shall determine will fully indemnify it against any and all loss and provide Telpar with a reasonable profit.

If this shipment is part of a blanket order with multiple shipment dates, then Customer will be invoiced as of the shipment date of each Product and payment for each invoice shall be due as provided for in Section 4. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Customer shall be responsible to Telpar for the total Purchase Price of the blanket order. If Customer has not requested delivery of the full order by either the expiration of the period of the blanket order, or the time period set forth in a Customer Purchase Order, then Telpar will invoice Customer for the remaining balance due, which Customer must pay immediately upon receipt of the invoice. In no event will a blanket order exceed a period of twelve (12) months.
4. DELIVERY AND PAYMENT. All Product(s) shall be delivered to Customer F.O.B. Origin, at which time title and risk of loss to such Product shall pass to Customer. Subject to prior approval by Telpar’s credit department, Payment may be made by cash-on-delivery (COD), VISA, Mastercard, American Express, prepayment, or bank wire transfer. If Telpar, in its sole discretion, determines that the financial condition of Customer does not merit continued production and/or shipment of Product on the terms of payment specified, Telpar may require full or partial payment from Customer in advance, or may, in its sole discretion, stop or delay production and/or shipment of the Products. Customer acknowledges and agrees that if the Product includes consumables, the quantity for Product order may vary by plus or minus ten percent (10%) of the quantity ordered and Customer agrees that delivery of the Product within such variance shall be deemed acceptable by Customer. The price shall be adjusted pro rata with respect to such variance. Telpar shall invoice at time of shipment of each Product. Payment is due upon receipt of Product at Customer’s location, unless otherwise agreed to in writing between the parties. Interest will accrue at 1.5% per month, or the highest amount allowable by law, whichever is greater, starting thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice for any delinquent amount, including past due interest. In addition, in the event that any payments are delinquent hereunder, and Telpar, in its sole discretion, elects to pursue collection, Customer agrees to pay all costs of collection incurred by Telpar. Claims for non-conforming orders must be submitted by Customer to Telpar within fifteen (15) days from shipment date.
