Terms and Conditions. Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Northcentral Technical College (NTC) ("Buyer") is bargaining for and will do business only under the terms and conditions contained herein, including any terms appearing on the front of this Purchase Order. The term "Buyer" means NTC, and the term "Seller" means the person, firm, or corporation from whom the equipment, materials, or services ("Merchandise") has been ordered. A properly signed Purchase Order bearing a Purchase Order number is the only form recognized by the Buyer as authority for charging Merchandise to its accounts, and constitutes the entire agreement between the parties, except as referenced herein. Seller may not assign this Purchase Order without Buyer's written consent. Buyer may at any time insist upon strict compliance with these terms and conditions, notwithstanding any previous custom, practice, or course of dealing to the contrary. Any proposal for additional or different terms or any attempt to vary in any degree any of the terms of this offer and Seller's acceptance or acknowledgment hereof is hereby objected to and shall not be binding upon Buyer. IF FOR ANY REASON THIS ORDER SHALL BE DEEMED AN ACCEPTANCE OF A PRIOR OFFER MADE BY SELLER, SUCH ACCEPTANCE IS EXPRESSLY CONDITIONED UPON SELLER'S ASSENT TO THE TERMS CONTAINED HEREIN. BUYER WILL PROCEED WITH THIS TRANSACTION ONLY IF SELLER ASSENTS TO THE TERMS CONTAINED IN THIS ORDER.
Delivery & Packing. Shipment shall be made in the quantities and at the time or times specified in this order or in supplementary schedules furnished by Buyer. Seller shall pack any goods ordered by Buyer in accordance with Buyer's packing instructions and in accordance with good commercial practices to ensure no damages shall result from weather or transportation. No extra charges will be allowed for packing or shipping unless specified on the front of this form. Unless otherwise stated herein, time is of the essence. If at any time Seller has reason to believe that deliveries will not be made as scheduled, it shall immediately give Buyer written notice setting forth the cause or causes of the anticipated delay. Late deliveries, deliveries of products which are defective or which do not conform to this order, and failure to provide Buyer, upon request, of reasonable assurances of future performance shall be causes allowing Buyer to terminate this order for cause, and Seller shall be liable for all damages to Buyer by reason of such events that caused termination.
Inspection, Risk of Loss and Title. All goods covered by this order shall be received subject to Buyer's right of inspection and rejection. Buyer shall have a reasonable amount of time to inspect goods, depending upon the method of packaging and the quantity purchased. Payment for goods delivered hereunder shall not constitute acceptance of such goods, and all payments shall be made with a reservation of rights by Buyer for defects, including, without limitation, defects apparent on the face thereof. When goods are made to Buyer's instructions, specifications or other requirements, Buyer may inspect such goods at Seller's plant and any other place of manufacture during production without waiving its rights subsequently to reject or revoke acceptance of such goods for undiscovered or latent defects. Seller, at its expertise, shall furnish or cause to be furnished, facilities and assistance reasonably necessary to ensure the safety and convenience of each such inspection. Unless otherwise agreed, title to the goods covered by this order and the risk of their loss or damage shall pass from Seller to Buyer upon the completion of unloading of the goods at the destination specified on the front of this order, subject in all cases to Buyer's right of inspection and rejection within a reasonable time after arrival. Seller warrants that the Merchandise is free and clear of all liens and encumbrances and that Seller has a good and marketable title to same.
Cancellation. Buyer reserves the right to terminate this order or any part hereof for its sole convenience. In the event of such termination, Seller shall immediately stop all work hereunder and shall immediately cause its suppliers or subcontractors to cease such work. Seller shall be paid a reasonable termination charge reflecting the percentage of work performed prior to the notice of termination, plus actual direct costs resulting from termination. Seller shall not be paid for any work done after receipt of the notice of termination, nor for any costs incurred by Seller's suppliers or subcontractors which Seller could have reasonably avoided.
Warranties. Seller expressly warrants that all goods covered by this order will: (a) conform to any and all final specifications, drawings, plans, instructions, samples, or other description, whether expressed or implied, furnished by Buyer or by Seller, (b) be fit and sufficient for the purpose(s) for which they were manufactured and sold, and if Seller knows or has reason to know of any other particular purpose for which Buyer intends to use such goods, the goods will be fit for such particular purpose, (c) be new and merchantable, and (d) be of good material and workmanship and free from defects, whether latent or patent. The foregoing warranty shall survive Buyer's inspection, acceptance, use, and subsequent dispossession or sale of the goods. Seller hereby extends to Buyer any and all warranties received from Seller's suppliers and agrees to enforce such warranties on Buyer's behalf. All Seller's warranties shall run to Buyer, its successors, assigns, customers, and users of products sold by Buyer. Seller agrees to promptly correct all defects in any goods not conforming to the foregoing warranties, or replace such goods, without expense to Buyer, when notified by Buyer. In the event of Seller's failure to correct or replace such defective or non-conforming goods, Buyer may, after reasonable notice to Seller, make such correction or replacement at Seller's expense. The foregoing warranties and remedies shall be in addition to any warranties and remedies of additional scope herein or otherwise provided by Seller to Buyer or otherwise provided by law, including, but not limited to, any and all warranties provided in the Uniform Commercial Code. Seller shall compensate, indemnify and hold Buyer harmless from and against any and all damages, including incidental and consequential damages, claims, liabilities, and expenses (including court costs and attorneys' fees) arising out of or relating to or resulting in any way from a breach of any warranty, whether express or implied, or from any act or omission of Seller, its officers, agents, employees or subcontractors. No waiver by Buyer of any provision of this Purchase Order shall constitute a waiver of any other breach of such provision or other provisions.
Price Warranty. Seller warrants that the prices for the goods delivered or sold hereunder are not less favorable than those currently extended to any other customer of Seller for the same or similar goods in similar quantities. If Seller reduces its price for such goods prior to final delivery of the goods to Buyer, Seller shall reduce the price or prices in this order in a corresponding manner. In case of error in calculating or typing, the quoted unit price will be used as basis for correction of this order.

Seller agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Buyer, its directors, officers, employees, successors, assigns, customers, and users of its products, from and against any damages, claims, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses (including, without limitation, court costs, attorneys' fees, profits, penalties or punitive damages) arising out of or relating to any actual or alleged infringements of such patent, copyright or trademark, or any unfair competition resulting from similarity in design, trademark or appearance, by reason of the manufacture, use, sale or offer of sale of the goods covered by this order. Buyer reserves the right to control, actively participate in or monitor, through its own counsel, at Seller's expense, any such claim of infringement or other such action brought against it.

No substitutions or changes in this order will be accepted unless approved in writing by Buyer.
Payments. Unless otherwise negotiated, the terms of payment shall be net 30 days from the receipt of a proper invoice detailing Merchandise details, quantity, price, date shipped, delivery address, shipping address, and relevant and reasonable order information.
