Acceptance by Buyer of any goods from Seller shall be considered acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. If these Terms and Conditions, or any related documents from Seller, are deemed to be a response to a Buyer document, then notwithstanding any additional or different terms that may be embodied in Buyer’s document, Seller’s response is expressly conditional on Buyer’s consent to the additional and/or different terms and conditions set forth in these Term and Conditions. If these Terms and Conditions are not acceptable to Buyer, Buyer must notify Seller in writing at once.
2. VERBAL ORDERS. Verbal orders are accepted only on the terms herein and in Seller’s order acknowledgment. Any discrepancies between Seller’s order acknowledgment and the Buyer’s verbal order are not binding on Seller. PLEASE REVIEW INTERCOMP’S ORDER ACKNOWLEDGMENT CAREFULLY.
3. PAYMENT. Unless otherwise stated in Intercomp’s order acknowledgment or quotation, all invoices are due 30 days after the invoice date. Past due accounts will be charged interest at 1.5% per month, but not more the maximum interest rate allowed by law. In no event is Buyer authorized to audit Intercomp (i) financial records, documents, or papers and/or (ii) processes or documentation related to trade secrets.

Any such taxes which Seller may be required to pay or collect under any existing or future law shall be promptly paid to Seller by Buyer upon demand, unless Buyer provides Seller with a properly executed certificate confirming that Seller is not required to collect any such taxes on Buyer’s behalf. Buyer will indemnify and hold Seller harmless from any liability, penalties or expenses incurred by Seller as a result of its reliance upon such certificate.

Seller warrants to the Buyer that the Goods shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from time of shipment except that said warrant shall be for a period of 90 days from the date of shipment as to non-electronic products. If Buyer notifies Seller in writing within the applicable period from the date of shipment by Seller (“Warranty Period”) of such a defect in any Goods, and if Seller determines that such Goods are not in conformity with this warranty, Seller will repair or replace such Goods or refund to Buyer the purchase price of such Goods. Any claims not made within the Warranty Period are deemed waived by Buyer.
