Advanced Education – Terms of Sale
PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY! IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, AS WELL AS LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS THAT MAY APPLY TO YOU.
These terms and conditions (the "Agreement") apply to the purchase of audio visual equipment and services and/or related products and/or services and support sold in Canada ("Product") by Advanced-Education.com ("Seller") via the Advanced-Education.com website (the "Site"). In this Agreement "Purchaser" means the person or company that places an order with the Seller for Product sold on the Site.
The acceptance of Purchaser's order and the Agreement between Seller and Purchaser resulting from Seller's acceptance of Purchaser's order, are expressly conditioned upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, whether additional to or different from those contained in Purchaser's purchase order or other form of document heretofore or hereafter supplied by Purchaser to Seller. The terms, provisions and conditions of the sale set forth in this Agreement shall be the only terms and conditions applicable to the Agreement between Purchaser and Seller, and any terms, provisions and conditions of Purchaser's order, any purchase order or any other communication from Purchaser, whenever made, which are inconsistent with the terms, provisions and conditions hereof shall not be binding upon Seller and shall not be applicable to the sale or shipment of Product sold hereunder. Purchaser's assent to the terms and conditions of sale set forth in this Agreement shall be conclusively presumed and deemed from Purchaser's acceptance of delivery of the product(s) ordered.
Prices are stated in Canadian dollars and payment shall be in Canadian currency, unless otherwise agreed upon by both the Purchaser and the Seller. A monthly service charge equal to one and one half percent (1.5%) (equivalent to eighteen percent (18%) per year) of all amounts past due and owing to Seller will be charged to Purchaser. Such monthly service charge will be assessed as of the first day any invoiced amount has become past due, and shall be reassessed monthly with respect to all amounts then past due and owing (including all previous service charges).
All prices are F.C.A. (as defined in Incoterms 2000) Seller's plant. Method and route of shipment are at Seller's discretion, unless Purchaser supplies explicit written instructions. All shipments of Product are insured at the Purchaser's expense and made at the Purchaser's risk.
Seller shall not be liable for failure to perform any of its obligations hereunder resulting directly or indirectly from or contributed to any acts of God, acts of Purchaser, acts of civil or military authority, priorities, fire, strikes or other labor disputes, power failure, accidents, floods, epidemics, war, riot, delays in transportation, lack or inability to obtain raw materials, components, labor or fuel supplies, or other circumstances or events beyond the Seller's reasonable control, whether similar or dissimilar to the foregoing.
Delivery of Product to a carrier at Seller's plant or other shipping point stated elsewhere in this order shall constitute delivery to Purchaser; and regardless of freight payment all risk of loss or damage in transit shall pass to Purchaser at that time. Purchaser shall make claims against the carrier for loss or damage to Product while in transit.
Prices quoted are exclusive of any and all federal, provincial and local taxes of any nature whatsoever, and if, in connection with this transaction, the Seller is subjected to any such tax by any taxing authority whatsoever, the same will be added to the purchase price to be paid by Purchaser.
SELLER HEREBY EXPRESSLY EXCLUDES ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES OR REPRESENTATIONS WHATSOEVER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, AND ALL OTHER SUCH WARRANTIES ARE SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED.
IN NO EVENT SHALL THE SELLER BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFIT OR REVENUE, COST OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, LOSS OF TIME OR ANY OTHER LOSSES INCURRED BY THE PURCHASER, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, IN CONNECTION WITH THE PURCHASE OR USE OF THE PRODUCT MANUFACTURED BY THE SELLER AND/OR SOLD BY THE SELLER. SELLER SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR, AND PURCHASER ASSUMES RESPONSIBILITY FOR, ALL PERSONAL INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE RESULTING FROM HANDLING, POSSESSION OR USE OF THE PRODUCT MANUFACTURED BY THE SELLER AND/OR SOLD BY THE SELLER. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION HEREIN OR ENTITLEMENT OF THE PURCHASER AT LAW, IN EQUITY OR OTHERWISE, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF THE SELLER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED, IN THE AGGREGATE, THE AMOUNT PAID BY THE PURCHASER TO THE SELLER FOR PRODUCT PURCHASED PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT.
In the event Purchaser fails to pay Seller for any shipment under this order or any other order, when payment becomes due, Seller reserves the right, among other remedies, to suspend further deliveries. If, in the judgment of the Seller, the financial condition of the Purchaser at any time does not justify continuance of production or shipment or the terms of payment specified, the Seller may require full or partial payment in advance of manufacture and/or delivery.
Cancellation or change of orders will be accepted only with the written acknowledgement and agreement of the Purchaser that Seller will be reimbursed for all expenses incurred as a result of the cancellation or change. Orders for special material or services are not subject to cancellation after production is started under any circumstances.
