All products ship EXW (Ex Works), unless specified otherwise.  Seller will make reasonable efforts to process and ship orders promptly and keep Buyer updated as to the dispatch. When complete shipments cannot be made, partial shipments may be made at Seller’s discretion unless otherwise requested. Regardless of method of shipment, D.O.T. and I.A.T.A. regulations require the use of special packaging for certain hazardous chemicals, which may impact shipment configuration.

Delivery of goods to the carrier at Seller’s plant or other loading point shall constitute delivery to Buyer and regardless of shipping terms, all risk of loss or damage in transit shall be borne by Buyer. If acceptable to Buyer, Seller may make delivery in installments. All such installments shall be separately invoiced and paid for when due per invoice and without regard to subsequent deliveries. Delay in delivery of any installment shall not relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept remaining deliveries. Immediately upon Buyer’s receipt of any goods shipped hereunder, Buyer shall inspect the same and shall notify Seller in writing of any claims for shortages, defects or damages and, if unacceptable, shall hold the goods for Seller’s written disposition. If Buyer shall fail to so notify Seller within 10 days after the goods have been received by Buyer, such goods shall conclusively be deemed to conform to the terms and conditions hereof and to have been irrevocably accepted by Buyer.

Seller shall not be liable for any loss, damage or penalty as a result of any delay in or failure to manufacture, deliver or otherwise perform hereunder due to any cause beyond Seller’s reasonable control, including without limitation, unsuccessful reactions, act of Buyer, embargo or other governmental act, regulation or request affecting the conduct of Seller’s business, fire, explosion, accident, theft, vandalism, riot, acts of war, strikes or other labor difficulties, lightning, flood, windstorm or other acts of God, delay in transportation, or inability to obtain necessary labor, fuel, materials, supplies or power. Goods may not be returned for credit except with Seller’s written authorization, and then only in strict compliance with Seller’s return of shipment instructions.

Any use tax, sales tax, excise tax, duty, custom, inspection or testing fee, or any other tax, fee or charge of any nature whatsoever imposed by any government authority, on or measured by the transaction between Seller and Buyer shall be paid by the Buyer in addition to the prices quoted or invoiced. In the event Seller is requested or required to pay any such tax, fee or charge, Buyer shall reimburse Seller; or, in lieu of such payment, Buyer shall provide Seller at the time the order is submitted an exemption certificate or other document acceptable to the authority imposing the tax, fee or charge.

Return Shipments
Return shipments will not be accepted without prior authorization and shipping instructions from the Seller.

Seller’s liability for any and all claims, losses or damages arising for any cause, including Seller’s negligence, shall in no event exceed the purchase price of the materials with respect to which the cause arose. In no event shall we be liable for incidental or consequential damages.
