Terms and Conditions of Sale

  1. Controlling Terms and Conditions.  These Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Terms and Conditions”), together with any sales order (“Sales Orders”) provided by Thalheimer Brothers, LLC (“Seller”) to any customer of Seller (“Buyer”), govern all sales of goods and products (“Goods”) by Seller (collectively the “Contract”).  Any additional or different terms proposed by Buyer in any form are hereby rejected, and Seller’s receipt of documents from Buyer, or Seller’s delivery of Goods, does not constitute acceptance of any terms or conditions different from the Contract.  The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between Seller and Buyer regarding the sale of the applicable Goods and supersedes all prior oral and written understandings, representations and correspondence between the parties, express or implied.  Any modifications or waivers to the Contract must be agreed to in writing by Buyer and Seller.                                                                                                                                  

  2. Financial Terms.  The price and payment terms for Goods are set forth in the applicable Sales Order. All Goods shipped under this Contract are subject to Seller’s usual tolerances with respect to quantity.    Any amounts not paid when due will be subject to a late payment fee computed daily at a rate equal to one and one half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate permissible under applicable law.  If, in Seller’s judgment, Buyer’s financial condition or any other circumstance causes Seller to be insecure with respect to Buyer’s performance of any obligation under this Contract, Seller may accelerate and demand immediate payment of any amounts owed Seller, suspend performance, require advance payment and/or cancel this Contract.  Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by or any shipping, delivery or Seller with Buyer, the Purchase Price does not include sales, use, excise or similar taxes.  All taxes related to the sale of the Goods are Buyer’s responsibility.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

  3. Shipment and Delivery.  Unless otherwise agreed to by Seller in writing, all shipments of Goods in the United States are F.O.B. Seller’s plant (Uniform Commercial Code), and Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs and insurance.  If a Sales Order specifically states that shipping is F.O.B. Buyer’s location in the United States (Uniform Commercial Code ), Seller will be responsible for shipping and insurance.  Unless otherwise agreed to by Seller in writing, all shipments outside of the United States are Free Carrier (FCA) or Free Alongside Ship (FAS) (INCOTERMS 2010), as applicable.  The delivery dates specified in the Contract are estimates only and Seller’s failure to meet the same will not be deemed a breach of the Contract.                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

  4. Force Majeure.  Seller will not be liable to Buyer for any delay or failure of delivery of any Goods or other nonperformance caused in whole or part by any contingency or event beyond Seller’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any government, war, riots, acts of God, machinery breakage, or any shortage of or inability to secure labor, labor strikes, transportation facilities, fuel, energy, raw materials, supplies, or machinery at reasonable prices or from regular sources.  In the event of the occurrence of any of the foregoing, Seller may distribute its available goods and material among its customers on such a basis as Seller deems fair and equitable, without liability to Buyer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

  5. Electronic Signatures on Sales Orders.  Each party agrees that if its electronic signature is included in a Sales Order, it is intended to authenticate the applicable Sales Order and to have the same force and effect as a manual signature.  “Electronic signature” means any electronic sound, symbol or process attached to or logically associated with a Sales Order and executed and adopted by a party with the intent to sign such record, including facsimile or e-mail electronic signatures.  Notwithstanding the foregoing and for the avoidance of doubt, e-mail correspondence between the parties alone does not create any legally binding contract or enforceable obligation of the parties.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

  6. Inspection.  Buyer must inspect all shipments of Goods purchased by Buyer upon arrival and notify Seller in writing within two (2) days of receipt of any nonconformity in Goods, materials, shipment or delivery.  Time of the essence and any claim of nonconformity is waived unless made in writing by Buyer to Seller specifically stating the details of such nonconformity within such two (2) day period.  Seller shall be given the opportunity to inspect the complaint of Buyer and Buyer shall cooperate with same.  If Seller determines, in its discretion, that Buyer’s claim is valid, it will then, at its option, replace the nonconforming material or Goods within a reasonable time period, or cancel the sale.  Seller shall in either event thereupon have the right to require Buyer the return of the nonconforming material at Seller’s cost.  Buyer must hold all Goods and materials intact until returned to Seller.  The foregoing are Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedies with respect to any non-conformity in Goods, materials, shipment or delivery.                                                                                                                                                 

  7. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.  EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH HEREIN, ALL GOODS ARE SOLD ON AN AS-IS BASIS.  SELLER MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY TO ANY PERSON, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY GOODS (NOTWITHSTANDING ANY DOCUMENT OR SPECIFICATIONS), INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

  8. ENVIRONMENTAL.  Buyer represents and warrants that it is in compliance, and covenants that it shall be in compliance, with all applicable federal, state and local environmental laws ANd regulations and any related compliance orders (including any decrees issued pursuant thereto) which are applicable to the handling, processing or reclamation of (or other management activities associated with) recyclable materials.   Seller has not and does not make any representation or warranty to Buyer as to whether any of the Goods constitute or contain: (a) any “hazardous waste” (as that term is defined in Section 1004 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. § 6903 and its implementing regulations) and (b) any “hazardous substance” (as that term is defined in the Section 101 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, as amended (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. § 9601 and its implementing regulations, in a form or concentration that is likely to result in a “release” (as that term is defined in CERCLA), or (c) any substance that would render the material unfit for its intended use.  Buyer HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVES ANY AND ALL CLAIMS against Seller, its officers, directors, employees, agents or other representatives for any all loss, liability, cost and expense (including without limitation statutory and common law liability, investigation and remediation costs, court costs, attorneys’ and consultants’ fees, personal injury and property damage) arising out of any of the foregoing.                                                                                                                                                                                        

  9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES. SELLER WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGES RELATING TO INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES OF ANY DESCRIPTION, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, OR OTHERWISE.  UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL SELLER’S LIABILITY FOR ANY CAUSE HEREUNDER EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID BY BUYER FOR THE APPLICABLE GOODS.  BUYER AGREES THAT ALL OF THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH HEREIN ARE AGREED UPON ALLOCATIONS OF RISK.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

  10. Indemnification.  Buyer shall indemnify (and at Seller’s option, defend) and hold Seller harmless from any and all third party claims asserted arising in connection with this Agreement, the disposition of Goods by Buyer or subsequent holders of the Goods, and the ultimate use of the Goods except to the extent of Seller’s liability expressly stated herein.                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

  11. Credit Insurance.  Seller may at its option and expense, purchase credit insurance on Buyer for any or all contracts entered into with Seller, including this Contract.  If credit insurance cannot be obtained in an amount equal to the contracts entered into or if credit insurance is denied, cancelled or reduced by the insuring company, Seller may at its option cancel any or all contracts with Buyer, or adjust all contract to coincide with the amount of credit insurance available to Seller.                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

  12. Confidentiality.  All specifications, documentation, pricing information and any other confidential or proprietary information (“Confidential Information”) of Seller is the property of Seller.  Confidential Information may be provided solely for the purpose of facilitating Sales Orders and on the express condition that Confidential Information of Seller shall not be disclosed to others nor used for any purpose by Buyer other than in connection with transacting business with Seller pursuant to such Sales Orders, and this Contract, as applicable.  Buyer shall promptly return to Seller all such Confidential Information upon Seller’s written request.  Buyer’s obligations under this paragraph shall survive the cancellation, termination or completion of any Sales Order or this Contract.                                                                                                                              

  13. Assignment.  Buyer may not assign this Contract or any of its rights or obligations hereunder to any third party without Seller’s prior written consent.  For purposes of this provision, a merger, stock sale or other transfer by operation of law shall be deemed an “assignment” for which consent is required hereunder.

This Contract will be interpreted according to the laws of the State of Pennsylvania.  The parties expressly disclaim the applicability of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.  Buyer hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Pennsylvania and of the United States of America located in Pennsylvania for any proceedings relating to this Agreement (and agrees not to commence any proceeding relating thereto except in such courts).  Buyer hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives any objection to the laying of venue, and agrees not to claim that any proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.                                                                                                                                                                  

  15. Severability.  In the event a provision of this Contract is determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it will not affect the validity, legality or enforceability of any other provision of the Contract and the parties agree that the remaining provisions will be deemed to be in full force and effect.
