4. Prices and Quotations

(i) Seller warrants to Buyer that the goods will be free from defects in material and workmanship for the period of [defined in Attachment “A”: Milton Roy, Williams, Linc, Durameter and YZ Products. Attachment B: LMI products or Attachment C: Hartell products] or as otherwise agreed to by the parties in the order. Seller's liability and Buyer's remedy under this warranty are limited to the repair or replacement, at Seller's election, of goods or parts thereof returned to Seller which are shown to Seller's reasonable satisfaction to have been defective; provided that written notice of the defect is provided by Buyer to Seller within thirty (30) days of identification of defect. Transportation charges for the return of defective goods to Seller and their reshipment to Buyer and the risk of loss thereof will be borne by Seller only if returned in accordance with written shipping instructions from Seller. If services or data are to be furnished, Seller warrants to Buyer that such services will be performed or such data prepared in a good workmanlike manner. Seller's liability and Buyer's remedy under this warranty are limited to the correction of such services or data as are shown to Seller's reasonable satisfaction to have been defective; provided that written notice of such defective services or data has been provided by Buyer to Seller within thirty (30) days after the performance of such services or delivery of such data by Seller.

(ii) Seller’s warranty does not extend to used product or products or services not manufactured or provided by Seller; however, Seller will provide to Buyer the benefits of any supplier’s warranty.

(iii) Seller’s warranty does not extend to any product found to have been subjected to abnormal operating conditions, the use of unapproved parts to the extent such parts are found to be the cause of the failure, or failure to follow the installation, operation and maintenance instructions provided by Seller.

 

b. Returns

In the event Buyer claims that Seller has breached any of its obligations under this order, whether in warranty or otherwise, Seller may, at its election, request and require return of the product and refund the Buyer’s purchase price upon Seller’s receipt of the returned product. If Seller so requests the return of the product, the product will be redelivered to Seller in accordance with Seller’s return policies and instructions, and at Seller’s expense. In the event Seller elects to require return of the product, Seller has absolutely no further obligation to Buyer under this order except to refund such purchase price upon redelivery of product.

 

c. Title

Seller warrants to Buyer that it will convey good title to the goods sold. Seller's liability and Buyer's remedy under this warranty are limited to the removal of any title defect or, at the election of the Seller, to the replacement of the goods or parts thereof which are defective in title; provided, however, that the rights and remedies of the parties with respect to patent infringement are limited to the provisions of subparagraph d. below.

 

d. Patent Infringement

(i) Seller agrees that it will, at its own expense and at its sole option, defend or settle any claim, suit, or proceeding brought against Buyer or any customer expressly indemnified by Buyer based on an allegation that any product furnished under this order directly infringes any claim of any United States patent. This obligation is effective only if: (a) Buyer has made all payments then due; (b) the product is the design of Seller and not made in accordance with drawings, samples, or manufacturing specifications designated by Buyer; (c) Seller is notified of said allegation promptly in writing; and (d) Seller is given full opportunity and authority, information, and assistance to conduct the sole defense of said claims, suit, or proceeding, including settlement and appeals. Provided all the foregoing conditions have met, Seller will either settle such claim, or pay all court awarded damages, excluding indirect, incidental, special, consequential and punitive damages. In the event of a final adjudication by a court of competent jurisdiction enjoining the use or sale of the product, or if the provisions of any negotiated settlement agreement prohibit the use or sale of the product, Seller will, at is sole option and its own expense, either: (a) procure for Buyer the right to continue using the product; (b) replace it with a substantially equivalent non-infringing product; (c) modify it so it becomes non-infringing but substantially equivalent; or (d) if none of the above is reasonably available, terminate the Buyer’s right to use the product and return to the Buyer a pro rata portion of the price originally paid by Buyer to Seller represented by the remaining useful life of the product as a percentage of the total useful life. The foregoing obligation does not apply to the following: (a) any claim of infringement resulting from changes or modifications made to or from the product by the Buyer; (b) any settlement of a claim, suit, or proceeding made without Seller’s written consent; and (c) any claim of infringement for products on a U.S. Government application. The foregoing states the entire liability of Seller with respect to infringement or violation of third party intellectual property rights in connection with products furnished under this order. 

(ii) In the event any product to be furnished under this order is to be made in accordance with drawings, samples, or manufacturing specifications designated by Buyer or is not the design of Seller, Buyer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Seller harmless.

 

e. Exclusive Warranties

THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES, OBLIGATIONS AND LIABILITIES OF SELLER ARE EXCLUSIVE AND ARE GIVEN AND ACCEPTED IN LIEU OF (I) ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; AND (II) ANY OBLIGATION, LIABILITY, RIGHT, CLAIM, OR REMEDY IN CONTRACT, TORT OR STRICT LIABILITY AGAINST SELLER, WHETHER OR NOT ARISING FROM SELLER'S NEGLIGENCE, ACTUAL OR IMPUTED. No agreement varying or extending the foregoing warranties will be binding upon Seller unless in writing, signed by a duly authorized officer of Seller.

 

9. Excusable Delays

Seller is not responsible for delay or non-delivery when due to delays of suppliers, acts of God or the public enemy, compliance in good faith with any applicable foreign or domestic governmental regulation or order whether or not it proves to be invalid, fires, riots, labor disputes, unusually severe weather, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of Seller.

 

10. Allocation of Risk and Liability Limitation

The liability of Seller to Buyer arising out of, connected with, or resulting from: (i) the design, manufacture, delivery, sale, possession, use, repair or handling of any goods delivered to Buyer by Seller or any affiliate of Seller, or (ii) any product advice, publication or other service provided to Buyer by Seller, is limited to those expressly set forth in the “Warranties, Remedies and Limitations” section above. Buyer acknowledges that the remedies and benefits furnished and to be furnished by Seller to Buyer under the “Warranties, Remedies and Limitations” section are given and accepted in lieu of any other remedy or benefit and in lieu of any obligation, liability, right, claim, or remedy in contract, tort or strict liability, whether or not arising from the negligence (actual or imputed) of Seller. The price allocable to any goods alleged to be the cause of any loss or damage to the Buyer is the ceiling limit on the liability of Seller whether arising under warranty, contract, tort (including negligence) or strict liability theory. Buyer acknowledges and accepts the warranties and liability limitations set forth herein as a valid and enforceable allocation of risk between the parties, and Buyer hereby waives any right which would tend to negate or limit their enforceability (including without limitation the provisions of UCC §2-719(3)). In no event will Seller be liable for special, incidental or consequential damages of any nature.

11. Export Control

The activities contemplated herein are all subject to the export laws, regulations and policies of the United States of America, as such may change from time to time. Buyer shall be responsible for complying with all applicable export laws, including U.S. laws governing the export, re-export, transfer and re-transfer of U.S. origin items.

If it is not possible to so mark the magnetic recording or other machine readable form, then the data will be identified as Proprietary Information by the Disclosing Party in written communication, prior to or contemporaneous with transmittal of such data.

 

b) All Data and developments by Seller and all other intellectual property rights (including Proprietary Information supplied by Seller under this Agreement and/or any Order) shall remain the sole and undivided property of Seller.

A Receiving Party agrees not to cause or permit the reverse engineering, reverse assembly, or reverse compilation of the Items.

(iv) Access to Proprietary Information for a Receiving Party shall be available only to persons in a bona fide employee status of a Receiving Party. Disclosure to all other parties, including consultants and divisions, subsidiaries and affiliates of a Receiving Party other than identified in this Agreement, shall be treated as disclosures to a third party in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the above, a Receiving Party may disclose Proprietary Information to its contract labor personnel having a need-to-know for the purposes of this Agreement, provided that the contract labor personnel are under an obligation to hold such Proprietary Information in confidence and an obligation not to disclosure such Proprietary Information to third parties under terms and conditions at least as restrictive as the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
