PROVO CRAFT PURCHASE ORDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  • 1. SERVICES & DELIVERABLES. Seller agrees to provide the Goods or deliverables (collectively referred to as "Goods"), described in any purchase order, in accordance with these Terms and Conditions ("Agreement"). Upon acceptance of a purchase order, shipment of Goods or commencement of a Service, Seller shall be bound by the provisions of these Terms and Conditions, including all provisions set forth on the face of any applicable purchase order, whether Seller acknowledges or otherwise signs this Agreement or the purchase order, unless Seller objects to such terms in writing prior to shipping Goods or commencing Services.

    This writing does not constitute a firm offer and may be revoked at any time prior to acceptance. This Agreement may not be added to, modified, superseded or otherwise altered, except by writing signed by an authorized Provo Craft representative. Any terms or conditions contained in any acknowledgment, invoice or other communication of Seller, which are inconsistent with the terms and conditions herein, are hereby rejected. If there is a conflict between the English terms and the Chinese terms, then English terms shall control. To the extent that this Agreement might be treated as an acceptance of Seller's prior offer, such acceptance is expressly made on condition of assent by Seller to the terms hereof and shipment of the Goods or beginning performance of any Services by Seller shall constitute such assent.
  • 2. DELIVERY. Time is of the essence. Delivery of Goods shall be made pursuant to the schedule, via the carrier and to the place specified on the face of the applicable purchase order and in compliance with Provo Craft’s Vendor Logistics Guide. Provo Craft reserves the right to return, shipping charges collect, all Goods received in advance of the delivery schedule. If no delivery schedule is specified, the order shall be filled promptly and delivery will be made by the most expeditious form of land transportation. If no method of shipment is specified in the purchase order, Seller shall use the least expensive carrier. In the event Seller fails to deliver the Goods within the time specified, Provo Craft may, at its option, decline to accept the Goods and terminate the Agreement or may demand its allocable fair share of Seller's available Goods and terminate the balance of the Agreement. Seller shall package all items in suitable containers to permit safe transportation and handling. Each delivered container must be labeled and marked to identify contents without opening and all boxes and packages must contain packing sheets listing contents. Provo Craft's purchase order number must appear on all shipping containers, packing sheets, delivery tickets and bills of lading.
  • 3. IDENTIFICATION, RISK OF LOSS & DESTRUCTION OF GOODS. Identification of the Goods shall occur in accordance with Provo Craft’s Vendor Logistics Guide, or as otherwise specified by Provo Craft. Seller assumes all risk of loss until receipt by Provo Craft. Title to the Goods shall pass to Provo Craft upon receipt by it of the Goods at the designated destination. If the Goods ordered are destroyed prior to title passing to Provo Craft, Provo Craft may at its option cancel the Agreement or require delivery of substitute Goods of equal quantity and quality. Such delivery will be made as soon as commercially practicable. If loss of Goods is partial, Provo Craft shall have the right to require delivery of the Goods not destroyed.
  • 4. PAYMENT. As full consideration for the delivery of the Goods and the assignment of rights to Provo Craft as provided herein, Provo Craft shall pay Seller the amount agreed upon and specified in the applicable purchase order. Applicable taxes and other charges such as shipping costs, duties, customs, tariffs, imposts and government imposed surcharges shall be stated separately on Seller's invoice. Payment is made when Provo Craft's check is mailed. Payment shall not constitute acceptance. All personal property taxes assessable upon the Goods prior to receipt by Provo Craft of Goods conforming to the purchase order shall be borne by Seller. Seller shall invoice Provo Craft for all Goods delivered and all Services actually performed. Each invoice submitted by Seller must be provided to Provo Craft within ninety (90) days of delivery of Goods and must reference the applicable purchase order, and Provo Craft reserves the right to return all incorrect invoices. Unless otherwise specified on the face of a purchase order, Provo Craft shall pay the invoiced amount within sixty (60) days after receipt of a correct invoice.
  • 5. WARRANTIES. Seller warrants that all Goods provided will be new and will not be used or refurbished. Seller warrants that all Goods delivered shall be free from defects in materials, design and workmanship and shall conform to all applicable specifications for a period of fifteen (15) months from the date of delivery to Provo Craft or for the period provided in Seller's standard warranty covering the Goods, whichever is longer. Furthermore, the Products will be free from defects and materials which could create a hazard to life or property; the Products will conform in all respects with all applicable international, federal, state, agency, and local laws, orders, and regulations, including, without limitation, those regarding: (a) safety, (b) content, (c) flammability, (d) weights, measures, and sizes, (e) processing, manufacturing, labeling, advertising, selling, shipping, and invoicing, (f) registration and declaration of responsibility, (h) occupational safety and health, and (g) noise, radio and electromagnetic emissions.

All warranties shall be construed as conditions as well as warranties and shall not be exclusive. Seller shall furnish to Provo Craft Seller's standard warranty and service guaranty applicable to the Goods. All warranties and Service guaranties shall run both to Provo Craft and to its customers.

    If Provo Craft identifies a warranty problem with the Goods during the warranty period, Provo Craft will promptly notify Seller of such problems and will return the Goods to Seller, at Seller's expense. Within five (5) business days of receipt of the returned Goods, Seller shall, at Provo Craft's option, either repair or replace such Goods, or credit Provo Craft's account for the same.

    Replacement and repaired Goods shall be warranted for the remainder of the warranty period or six (6) months, whichever is longer.
  • 6. INSPECTION. Provo Craft shall have a reasonable time after receipt of Goods or Service deliverables and before payment to inspect them for conformity hereto, and Goods received prior to inspection shall not be deemed accepted until Provo Craft has run an adequate test to determine whether the Goods conform to the specifications hereof.
