Vendor Terms & Conditions
1. General. The following terms and conditions, together with the terms set forth on the front of this Purchase shall constitute the entire contract (the “Purchase Order”) between Diversified Technical Systems Inc. (DTS) and the party accepting this offer (the “Supplier”). If other documents submitted by Supplier in connection with the Purchase Order, or Supplier’s proposal, have been incorporated by reference, these shall not be deemed to supersede any terms herein or contrary requirements of DTS. If this Purchase Order is construed as an offer, this offer expressly limits acceptance to the terms of this offer and notice of objection to any different or additional terms in any response to this offer is hereby given. If this Purchase Order is construed as an acceptance of an offer, this acceptance is expressly conditioned upon Supplier’s assent to any different or additional terms contained or referenced in this Purchase Order. This Purchase Order shall be deemed to have been accepted by the Supplier upon receipt by DTS of any writing, including a writing transmitted by fax or other means of electronic transmission, indicating acceptance, or by any of the following: (i) shipment of the goods or any portion thereof, (ii) commencement of any work on site or (iii) performance of any services hereunder.
2. Time. All shipments are FOB Destination. If delivery or completion dates cannot be met, Supplier shall inform DTS immediately. Such notice shall not, however, constitute a change to the delivery or completion terms of this Purchase Order unless DTS modifies this Purchase Order in writing. If any item is not received or if any element of the work is not completed by the date specified, DTS, at DTS’s option and without prior notice to Supplier, may either approve a revised date or may cancel this Purchase Order and may obtain such goods or work elsewhere and in either event the Supplier shall be liable to DTS for any resulting loss incurred by DTS. Supplier’s sole remedy for a delay caused by DTS shall be an extension in the time for Supplier’s performance equal to the duration of DTS’s delay. Supplier shall not be liable for damages resulting from Supplier’s failure to deliver or complete, or for delays in delivery or completion, caused solely by strikes not caused by or within the control of Supplier, lock-outs not caused by or within the control of Supplier, fires, war or acts of God. TIMING OF DELIVERY AND/OR PERFORMANCE OF THE WORK IS OF THE ESSENCE OF THIS PURCHASE ORDER.
3. Improper Performance and Disputes. In addition to other remedies provided by law, DTS reserves the right to reject any goods or to revoke any previous acceptance and to cancel all or any part of the Purchase Order if Supplier fails to deliver all or any part of the goods or perform any of the work in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Purchase Order. Acceptance of any part of the Purchase Order shall not bind DTS to accept any future shipments or work, nor deprive it of the right to return goods already accepted. Any dispute arising in connection with this Purchase Order shall be resolved in and only in a Federal or State Court located in Orange County, CA as the exclusive judicial forum. DTS AND SUPPLIER WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL WITH REGARD TO ANY DISPUTE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THIS PURCHASE ORDER. The prevailing party in any dispute with respect to this Purchase Order shall be entitled to reasonable attorney fees and costs.
4. Warranty. Supplier expressly warrants all (i) goods delivered under this Purchase Order to be free from defects in material and workmanship and to be of the quality, size and dimensions ordered and (ii) work performed under this Purchase Order to be in conformity with all plans, specifications and other data incorporated as part of this Purchase Order. These express warranties shall not be waived by reason of acceptance or payment by DTS. This Purchase Order incorporates by reference all terms of the Uniform Commercial Code as adopted in the State of California (the “UCC”) providing any protection to DTS for goods, including but not limited to all warranty protection (express or implied) and all of DTS’s remedies under the UCC. All goods and work shall also be subject to any stricter warranties specified in the Purchase Order or in other materials incorporated by reference.
5. Indemnity and Hold Harmless. From and after the date of this Purchase Order, the Supplier agrees to indemnify, defend and hold DTS harmless from any and all claims and liabilities, regardless of by whom such claim or liability may be asserted, for personal injury (including death), or loss or damage to property, or otherwise that may result directly or indirectly from the use, possession or ownership of the goods or from the services provided by Supplier pursuant to this Purchase Order. With regard to Supplier’s obligation to defend, DTS shall have the right to reasonably select the legal counsel whom Supplier shall use to defend DTS. If DTS elects to require that Supplier defend a Claim pursuant to this paragraph, and Supplier fails or declines to assume the defense of such Claim within thirty (30) days after notice thereof, DTS may assume the defense of such Claim for the account and at the risk of Supplier, and any liabilities related thereto shall be conclusively deemed a liability of Supplier. The indemnification rights of DTS contained herein are in addition to all other rights which DTS may have at law or in equity or otherwise.
6. Export and Import Compliance. Buyer and Seller (hereafter also known collectively as “Parties”) shall comply with the laws and regulations of the United States of America (USA) relating to exports and foreign transactions, including but not limited to, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) (22 C.F.R. Parts 120-130), the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778), the Export Administration Regulation (EAR) (15 C.F.R. Parts 730-774) and the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. 2401 et. Seq.). In particular, the Parties shall not disclose any technical data nor deliver, export, re-export or re-transfer any Goods out of the USA, or to foreign persons or entities within or outside the USA, without the proper written authorization and/or licenses from the U.S. Government. Buyer hereby indemnifies and agrees to hold Seller harmless from any costs, damages, penalties, attorney’s fees and similar expenses of Seller due to Buyer’s breach (or threatened breach) of such obligation.
