  1. Sale of Equipment: Equipment provided by REM Surface Engineering (SELLER) to Buyer covered by this Invoice is sold subject to the terms and conditions contained herein. Acceptance of or payment for the Equipment by Buyer shall constitute acceptance by the Buyer of the terms and conditions hereof.  The terms and conditions set forth herein shall constitute the contract between the Parties, and any additional or contrary provisions contained in Buyer’s purchase order or any other document including, but not limited to, shipping documents, shall not be part of this contract.  To the extent that this document represents a quotation by SELLER, the price and terms set forth herein shall remain outstanding for a period of sixty (60) days after the date first delivered to Buyer unless Buyer shall acknowledge its contract to such terms by signing such quotation and returning the same to SELLER within such sixty (60) day period; provided, however, that all quotations and orders are subject to final written acceptance by SELLER at its offices from which the  Equipment is shipped, either Brenham, Texas, or Southington, Connecticut, USA.
  2. Price and Terms of Payment: Sale is made at the price in effect at the time of shipment F.O.B. point of shipment.  All payments shall be made in U.S. dollars.  Standard payment terms are:   30 percent of the total value of the order is due with purchase order to SELLER; 60 percent is due upon shipment F.O.B.; and 10 percent is due within 30 days of shipment, unless otherwise set forth on the quotation or invoice.  On accounts not paid within the terms set forth on this invoice, interest will be collected at the rate of 1.5% per month on the unpaid balance, beginning on the date on which payment is due, but not to exceed the maximum amount permitted by law.  If Buyer shall fail to pay any amount when due, SELLER may, at its option, without prejudice to other lawful remedies, suspend further shipments and deliveries of Equipment under this contract, and no forbearance, course of dealings or prior payments shall affect this right of SELLER.  If at any time Buyer’s financial responsibility becomes impaired or in SELLER’s opinion inadequate to meet its obligations hereunder, SELLER may change or withdraw the terms of credit and if withdrawn require cash or satisfactory security before making shipment of Equipment under this contract.  Buyer shall pay reasonable expenses incurred by SELLER for collection from Buyer of money due and unpaid, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.  In that this invoice evidences a commercial transaction, as defined in Connecticut General Statutes 52-278(a), Buyer does hereby waive notice and hearing under Section 52-278(a) through (g), inclusive, of the Connecticut General Statutes or any similar statute relating to any writ for prejudgment remedy prepared by SELLER.
  3. Freight: Terms are F.O.B. place of shipment, unless otherwise agreed to by SELLER in writing.  SELLER assumes no responsibility or liability for loss of, damage to, or consequences from loss or damage to the Equipment after delivery to the carrier, who shall be deemed to be Buyer’s agent, and the shipment, shall, therefore, be at Buyer’s risk.  Shipments are made by the least expensive method unless otherwise expressly specified and are routed at SELLER’s discretion.  All shipping costs are borne by Buyer.
  4. Title: Title to the Equipment and risk of loss or damage shall pass to the Buyer F.O.B. point of shipment.  Buyer grants SELLER a security interest in all Equipment purchased or hereafter purchased from SELLER to secure payment of the purchase price.  The Buyer shall not sell the Equipment without the written consent of SELLER. The security interest shall attach to the proceeds of the Equipment.  The Buyer agrees to do all acts necessary to maintain the Equipment subject to the security interest and to protect SELLER’s interest from loss by adequately insuring the Equipment against loss or damage from any external cause with SELLER being named as an additional insured or coinsured.  Buyer hereby authorizes SELLER and appoints SELLER as its attorney-in-fact to prepare and file in all appropriate jurisdictions UCC-1 Financing Statements naming Buyer as Debtor and SELLER as Secured Party, describing the collateral and otherwise in form determined by Buyer to be appropriate and in compliance with Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code.
  5. Default: If the Buyer fails to pay the purchase price or defaults on its obligations under the preceding paragraph, SELLER may immediately and without notice to the Buyer, take possession of the collateral and dispose of same as provided by law, with or without judicial process.  The Buyer authorizes SELLER to dispose of collateral, either by public or private sale, in such a manner as is commercially reasonable.  With respect to any accounts or contract rights, which represent the proceeds from the sale of Equipment, the Buyer authorizes its account or contract debtors to pay amounts due directly to SELLER.  The Buyer shall be liable to SELLER for all expenses incurred to take possession of collateral including any action in any bankruptcy proceedings.  The term “expenses” shall include reasonable attorney fees and reasonable costs of litigation.
  6. Containers: Equipment shall be placed and shipped in suitable containers, the nature of which shall be determined by SELLER.  No charge will be made for packing or casing any Equipment shipped in SELLER specified containers for domestic truck shipment.  Where special containers are required or other than standard packing are necessary including, but not limited to, international shipment or shipment other than by truck, the expenses involved will be charged to Buyer.  Returnable containers are the property of SELLER.  Buyer shall be liable to SELLER for any damage to returnable containers.  In no event shall returnable containers be sent back to SELLER freight collect without written permission of SELLER.
  7. Delivery: Estimates of delivery are made by SELLER in good faith but not guaranteed.  Every effort will be made to fill orders within the time promised but under no circumstances will SELLER assume the responsibility for any damages arising out of or attributable to any delays whatever.  Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, SELLER shall have the right to make shipments in installments, and each installment may be separately invoiced and shall be paid as billed without regard to subsequent shipments.  If Buyer delays shipment, the date of readiness for shipment shall be deemed to be the date of shipment for payment purposes, provided that if shipment is not authorized or having been authorized is not accepted, the Equipment will be stored at the Buyer’s risk and expense.  Buyer will under any circumstances be responsible for payment for such Equipment in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein.  If Buyer delays manufacture of the Equipment, payment shall be made based upon the purchase price of the entire order of Equipment and the percentage of completion thereof, with the balance due in accordance with the terms as stated herein.  In the event of the cancellation of the order by Buyer for reasons other than as otherwise set forth herein, Buyer shall pay SELLER a cancellation charge based upon the percentage of completion as determined by SELLER, but in no event will the cancellation charge be less than 10% of the selling price of the Equipment ordered hereunder.  Delay in shipment of any installment or failure to ship any installment shall not relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept remaining installments, except where otherwise expressly agreed to in writing.  Buyer’s failure to pay for any installment as and when due shall excuse SELLER from further production and delivery and all other duties arising out of this contract.  In the event of any default by Buyer, SELLER may decline to make further shipments without in any way affecting its rights under this contract.  If SELLER elects to continue to make shipments, despite any default by Buyer, SELLER’s action shall not constitute a waiver of any default by Buyer or in any way affect SELLER’s legal remedies for such default.  SELLER shall not be held responsible for any delay or failure to perform its obligations hereunder in whole or in part due directly or indirectly, without limitation, to war, epidemics, flood, acts of God, accidents, shortage of transportation, blockades, embargoes, federal, state, municipal or any other governmental action or regulation, strikes or other labor troubles, fire, damage to or destruction in whole or in part of the Equipment or manufacturing plant, lack of or inability to obtain materials, labor, fuel or supplies, restraining orders or injunctions of any court or judge or any other causes, contingencies or circumstances within or without the United States not subject to its control which prevent or substantially hinder the manufacture, shipment or delivery of the Equipment, any of which shall, without liability, excuse SELLER from further performance of this contract or, at its election, extend the time of performance by the time or times measured by any such cause or causes of delay. In any event, if any shipment shall be delayed three or more months because of any of the aforesaid causes, either party shall have the right by written notice to the other to cancel the unshipped portion of the order, and the balance, if any, of this contract, and, in such event, neither party shall be liable to the other for any losses or damages arising out of such cancellation.  In the event of inability to supply the total demand for the Equipment as provided in this contract, SELLER may allocate its available supply among any or all Buyers on such basis as it may deem fair and practical without liability for any failure of performance which may result therefrom.
  8. Additions to Price: In addition to the prices quoted, all applicable county, state or federal taxes or other taxes or duties shall be paid and borne by Buyer, and Buyer shall reimburse SELLER in the event that SELLER is required to pay the same by any taxing authority.  Where Buyer requires tests or inspection not regularly provided by SELLER, SELLER will charge Buyer for the actual costs for such tests or inspections unless otherwise specified.
  9. Drawings and Specifications: In the event that drawings are sent to the Buyer for approval after the order is placed, the drawings must be returned marked “Approved” or “Approval as Noted” within ten (10) working days after receipt unless otherwise noted.  In the event the Buyer’s written comments are not given within the ten (10) day period, the drawings shall be deemed approved by the Buyer.
  10. Confidential Information: Buyer will keep confidential and will not use or reproduce any Confidential or Proprietary information received from SELLER for the use, operation, or maintenance of the Equipment, except with the written consent of SELLER.  Buyer will not copy or otherwise reproduce any written or printed material or drawings furnished to Buyer by SELLER in connection with the Equipment covered by this contract except with written permission of the SELLER.  Buyer will return all such material to SELLER if this contract is not accepted.  Buyer will not copy or reverse engineer the Equipment or make any design drawings of the Equipment.  SELLER shall have a royalty-free license to make, use and sell any changes or improvements in the Equipment invented or suggested by Buyer or its employees.
  11. Guarantee: All equipment or parts covered by this contract are guaranteed to be free from defective material and workmanship, under normal use and service for a period of twelve (12) months from delivery or 2000 hours, whichever comes first.  This guarantee does not cover failure of normal wear parts unless the failure of such part has resulted from defective material or workmanship.  In the event of any such defects developing within the stated period under normal and proper use, SELLER is to be notified promptly in writing, and if accounts are fully paid, then at SELLER’s option the Equipment shall either be returned promptly to SELLER, F.O.B. SELLER’s factory from which the Equipment was shipped or the Equipment will either be repaired or replaced without charge.  In the case of components purchased by SELLER and incorporated into the Equipment, SELLER’s guarantee is limited to the component manufacturer’s warrantee.  SELLER does not accept liability for any corrective or other work or expenditures of any kind that have not been authorized by SELLER in writing prior to the commencement of such work or prior to committing to such expenditures, without exception.  Service calls, when requested will be at the expense of the Buyer, unless otherwise agreed upon.
