These terms and conditions of sale (these “Terms”) are the only terms which govern the sale of the goods (“Goods”) and services (“Services”) by One Stop Systems, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“OSS”) to the buyer (“Buyer”) named on any quotation, confirmation of sale or invoice issued by OSS (the “Sales Confirmation”). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if a written contract signed by both parties is in existence covering the sale of the Goods and Services covered hereby, the terms and conditions of said contract will prevail to the extent they are inconsistent with these Terms.
The Sales Confirmation and these Terms (collectively, this “Agreement”) comprise the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. These Terms prevail over any of Buyer’s general terms and conditions of purchase regardless whether or when Buyer has submitted its purchase order or such terms. Fulfillment of Buyer’s order does not constitute acceptance of any of Buyer’s terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend these Terms.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, OSS may, from time to time change the Services without the consent of Buyer provided such changes do not materially affect the nature or scope of the Services, or the fees or any performance dates set forth in the Sales Confirmation.
Delivery of Goods and Performance of Services
The Goods will be delivered within a reasonable time after the receipt of Buyer’s purchase order. OSS will not be liable for any delays, loss, or damage in transit.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, OSS will deliver the Goods to an OSS facility loading dock designated by OSS in its sole discretion (the “Pickup Location”) using OSS’s standard methods for packaging such Goods. Buyer will pre-arrange their preferred carrier and shipping method and take delivery of the Goods within ten (10) days of OSS’s written notice that the Goods have been delivered to the Pickup Location. Buyer will be responsible for all loading costs and provide equipment and labor reasonably suited for receipt of the Goods at the Pickup Location, and will unload and release all transportation equipment promptly so OSS incurs no demurrage or other expense.
OSS may, in its sole discretion, without liability or penalty, make partial shipments of Goods to Buyer. Each shipment will constitute a separate sale, and Buyer will pay for the units shipped whether such shipment is in whole or partial fulfillment of Buyer’s purchase order.
If for any reason Buyer fails to accept delivery of any of the Goods on the date fixed pursuant to OSS’s notice that the Goods have been delivered at the Pickup Location, or if OSS is unable to deliver the Goods at the Pickup Location on such date because Buyer has not provided appropriate instructions, documents, licenses, payments or authorizations: (i) risk of loss to the Goods will pass to Buyer; (ii) the Goods will be deemed to have been delivered; and (iii) OSS, at its option, may store the Goods until Buyer picks them up, whereupon Buyer will be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance).
OSS will use reasonable efforts to meet any performance dates to render the Services specified in the Sales Confirmation, and any such dates will be estimates only.
With respect to the Services, Buyer will (i) cooperate with OSS in all matters relating to the Services and provide such access to Buyer’s premises, and such office accommodation and other facilities as may reasonably be requested by OSS, for the purposes of performing the Services; (ii) respond promptly to any OSS request to provide direction, information, approvals, authorizations, or decisions that are reasonably necessary for OSS to perform Services in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement; (iii) provide such customer materials or information as OSS may reasonably request to carry out the Services in a timely manner and ensure such customer materials or information are complete and accurate in all material respects; and (iv) obtain and maintain all necessary licenses and consents and comply with all applicable laws in relation to the Services before the date on which the Services are to start.
Shipping Terms Delivery of the Goods will be made EXW (Ex-Works) (Incoterms 2020) Pickup Location.
Title and Risk of Loss Title and risk of loss passes to Buyer upon delivery of the Goods at the Pickup Location. As collateral security for the payment of the purchase price of the Goods, Buyer hereby grants to OSS a lien on and security interest in and to all of the right, title, and interest of Buyer in, to and under the Goods, wherever located, and whether now existing or hereafter arising or acquired from time to time, and in all accessions thereto and replacements or modifications thereof, as well as all proceeds (including insurance proceeds) of the foregoing. The security interest granted under this provision constitutes a purchase money security interest under the California Uniform Commercial Code.
Buyer’s Acts or Omissions If OSS’s performance of its obligations under this Agreement is prevented or delayed by any act or omission of Buyer or its agents, subcontractors, consultants, or employees, OSS will not be deemed in breach of its obligations under this Agreement or otherwise liable for any costs, charges, or losses sustained or incurred by Buyer, in each case, to the extent arising directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.
Inspection and Rejection of Nonconforming Goods
Buyer will inspect the Goods received under this Agreement. On the eighth (8th) day after delivery of the Goods to Buyer’s street address specified in the Sales Confirmation, Buyer will be deemed to have accepted the Goods unless it (i) earlier notifies OSS in writing of any Nonconforming Goods and (ii) furnishes such written evidence or other documentation as reasonably required by OSS. “Nonconforming Goods” means only the following: (i) product shipped is different than identified in Buyer’s purchase order; or (ii) product’s label or packaging incorrectly identifies its contents.
No return of Goods will be accepted by OSS without a Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) number issued by OSS. OSS will provide an RMA number within two (2) business days after receipt of notice from Buyer pursuant to this Section 6. The RMA number is valid for thirty (30) days and must be clearly marked on the exterior of Buyer’s return shipping container. Goods must be returned as directed by OSS and be in its original packaging. Returns of Goods packaged in electrostatic packaging will not be accepted if electrostatic packaging has been opened.
If Buyer timely notifies OSS of any Nonconforming Goods, OSS will, in its sole discretion, (i) repair or replace such Nonconforming Goods, or (ii) credit or refund the Price for such Nonconforming Goods, together with any reasonable shipping and handling expenses incurred by Buyer in connection therewith. Buyer will ship, at its expense and risk of loss, the Nonconforming Goods to an OSS facility designated by OSS in its sole discretion. If OSS exercises its option to repair or replace Nonconforming Goods, OSS will, after receiving Buyer’s shipment of Nonconforming Goods, ship to Buyer, at OSS’s expense and risk of loss, the repaired or replaced Goods to Buyer’s street address specified in the Sales Confirmation.
Buyer acknowledges and agrees the remedies set forth in SECTION 6(c) are Buyer’s exclusive remedies for the delivery of Nonconforming Goods subject to BUYER’S rights under Section 9 regarding any GOODS for which BUYER has accepted delivery under this Section 6. Except as provided under SECTION 6(c), all sales of Goods to Buyer are made on a one-way basis and Buyer has no right to return Goods purchased under this Agreement to OSS.
Buyer will purchase the Goods and Services from OSS at the prices (the “Prices”) set forth in OSS’s published price list in force as of the date that OSS accepts Buyer’s purchase order. If the Prices should be increased by OSS before delivery of the Goods to a carrier for shipment to Buyer, then these Terms will be construed as if the increased prices were originally inserted herein, and Buyer will be billed by OSS on the basis of such increased prices.
Buyer agrees to reimburse OSS for all reasonable travel and out-of-pocket expenses incurred by OSS in connection with the performance of the Services if such expenses have been pre-approved in writing by the Buyer.
All Prices are exclusive of all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed by any governmental authority on any amounts payable by Buyer. Buyer will be responsible for all such charges, costs and taxes; provided, Buyer will not be responsible for any taxes imposed on, or with respect to, OSS’s income, revenues, gross receipts, personal or real property, or other assets.
Buyer will pay all invoiced amounts due to OSS within fifteen (15) days from the date of OSS’s invoice. Buyer will make all payments hereunder US dollars by check, wire transfer or automated clearing house.
Buyer will pay interest on all late payments at the lesser of the rate of 2% per month or the highest rate permissible under applicable law, calculated daily and compounded monthly. Buyer will reimburse OSS for all costs incurred in collecting any late payments, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees. In addition to all other remedies available under these Terms or at law (which OSS does not waive by the exercise of any rights hereunder), OSS will be entitled to suspend the delivery of any Goods or performance of any Services and stop Goods in transit if Buyer fails to pay any amounts when due hereunder.
Buyer will not withhold payment of any amounts due and payable by reason of any set-off of any claim or dispute with OSS, whether relating to OSS’s breach, bankruptcy or otherwise.
Limited Product Warranty Subject to the provisions of this Section 9, OSS provides Buyer, for a period of one (1) year from the date the Goods are shipped to Buyer, OSS’s standard one (1) year bronze warranty in force when the Goods are shipped to Buyer, as set out in the written warranty statement on OSS’s website at: https://www.onestopsystems.com/warranty-information.
