Please read this document carefully. It contains very important information about the Purchaser’s rights and obligations, as well as limitations and exclusions that may apply to the Purchaser.
TERMS ARE EXCLUSIVE: This document which shall be deemed to accompany a quote, invoice, sales receipt or document of sale (“Sales Document”) contains the terms and conditions that apply to your purchase from Multisorb Technologies Ltd. (hereinafter “Multisorb”). This document, together with the relevant Sales Document issued by Multisorb, constitutes the complete and final agreement between the undersigned (hereinafter referred to as “Purchaser”) and Multisorb for the products described hereon or in the related Sales Document. The terms and conditions contained in this document may not be added to, modified, supplemented or superseded by the use of any other documents, including but not limited to, any and all Purchaser documents. Any attempt to alter, supplement or amend this document will be null and void unless any such amendment or supplementation is agreed to as evidenced by a signed approval by an authorized representative of Multisorb. If Purchaser accepts any performance of Multisorb, Purchaser will be deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions of this document. For the avoidance of doubt and to resolve any issue regarding competing forms, in the event that the Purchaser issues a purchase order or other related purchase document, it is specifically agreed that the same is for internal purposes only and no term or condition stated in such document shall have any force or effect.
TERMS OF ACCEPTANCE: Payment in full is due upon receipt of invoice. However, the payment terms of a Purchaser with approved credit are net 30 days after date of invoice which shall be the date of release to the warehouse for shipment of the product(s). If payment is not received when due, there will be assessed a charge for financing at one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or fraction thereof. On special items, Multisorb reserves the right to ship and bill ten percent (10%) more or ten percent (10%) less than the quantity covered by the order as necessary because of difficulties in material procurement and in production scheduling. If any order is not for an integral number of standard containers, Multisorb reserves the right to ship, and Purchaser agrees to pay for, the nearest quantity possible in standard containers, even though this may raise or lower the quantity ordered.
PRICING: The prices shall be those in effect at the time of shipment for the particular product, grade and quantity shipped. Multisorb reserves the right to amend its pricing without advance notice to Purchaser. If an order is delayed at the request of Purchaser and such delay causes increased production costs or otherwise, the additional cost will be billed to the Purchaser without objection. Additionally, if costs for a particular product are increased by new governmental regulations, or other reasons beyond Multisorb’s control, the increased cost shall be added to the Purchaser’s invoice without objection by Purchaser.
TAXES: Unless noted on the face of a Sales Document, no sales, use or other product taxes are included, and any such taxes, where applicable, are the sole and exclusive responsibility of the Purchaser and must be paid by the Purchaser.
DELIVERY: Risk of loss of the products will pass to Purchaser pursuant to the controlling Incoterms® 2010 Rule which is applicable to the sale of the products and/or goods as said Incoterms® 2010 Rule is so selected in the sole discretion of Multisorb and thereafter identified in the accompanying purchase order prepared by Multisorb. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, it is understood and agreed that title to the goods and/or products shall not pass to the Purchaser until the Purchaser has paid in full for said goods and/or products. Furthermore, it is understood and agreed that Purchaser shall obtain and thereafter maintain comprehensive insurance on the goods and/or products from the date the goods and/or products are delivered to the carrier by Multisorb, irrespective of when title to the goods and/or products passes to the Purchaser.
AVAILABILITY OF SUPPLIES: Delivery of the products ordered by Purchaser is contingent upon Multisorb’s ability to obtain supplies, raw materials and services through its regular and usual sources. For the avoidance of doubt, time is not of the essence relative to delivery of products. If, for any reason beyond Multisorb’s control, Multisorb is unable to meet anticipated deliveries or fill an order, Multisorb will not be liable therefore and may postpone the delivery date(s) under these terms and conditions for a period of time which is reasonable under all of the circumstances. Multisorb uses its best efforts to stock those items which are standard and for which there is a constant demand and does its best to make rapid delivery of special items which must be manufactured. Accordingly, delivery dates quoted by Multisorb are best estimates or approximations of delivery. Because of many factors which are generally beyond Multisorb’s control, Multisorb cannot guarantee delivery on a specific date (unless a specific delivery date is agreed to in a separate writing), and Multisorb will not be responsible for any penalty charges (including but not limited to costs and/or losses) if a delivery date is exceeded. Multisorb reserves the right to ship in advance of a delivery date, if in Multisorb’s reasonable opinion, this should be done to insure delivery within the time desired.
INSPECTIONS AND ACCEPTANCE: Each delivery of products will be inspected promptly by Purchaser for damage and defects. Purchaser must notify Multisorb, in writing, of any and all claimed damage or defects within ten (10) days of Purchaser’s receipt of the products. If Purchaser fails to so inspect or notify Multisorb, in writing, Purchaser will be deemed to have accepted the products and to have waived any claim for damage or defect. If Purchaser inspects the products and promptly notifies Multisorb, in writing, within ten (10) days of receipt of the product(s) of its claim that the products are damaged or defective, Multisorb will review Purchaser’s claim, and if valid, as determined in the sole discretion of Multisorb, Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the replacement of the products alleged to be damaged or defective. Purchaser hereby agrees that such ten (10) day period is a reasonable amount of time for such inspection and revocation.
SECURITY INTEREST/RETENTION OF TITLE: It is understood and agreed that Multisorb reserves and maintains a security interest in the products sold to secure Purchaser’s payment of the purchase price and any other charges owed by Purchaser, and Purchaser agrees that Multisorb may (but is not obligated to) take appropriate actions to evidence and perfect such interest and that Purchaser will cooperate with Multisorb in taking of such actions. For the avoidance of doubt, and in furtherance of the aforesaid, it is understood and agreed that until such time as Purchaser pays in full for the goods and/or products, title to said goods and/or products shall be retained solely and exclusively by Multisorb.
LIMITED WARRANTY, WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATIONS OR REMEDIES AND LIABILITIES: Multisorb warrants to Purchaser, only for commercial use or resale, that at the time of delivery the products will conform (subject to variations acceptable within the industry) to the specifications set forth in this document and any related Sales Document.

No item will be deemed defective or not in accordance herewith if such item conforms to previously accepted materials or if such item fits Purchaser’s parts or equipment or otherwise reasonably accommodates Purchaser’s intended purpose.

RETURNS: No product is to be returned to Multisorb without the written authorization of Multisorb. Multisorb’s products are sold on the basis that the Purchaser has examined them and made its own selection or determination of suitability for the Purchaser’s need(s). Although Multisorb desires to help its customers make the best possible selection, the final decision of which product to purchase is that of the Purchaser.
CANCELLATION: Cancellation of an order for a standard product will be accepted without charge only if the cancellation results in no monetary loss to Multisorb. In the event that there is a monetary loss to Multisorb for a cancelled order, said loss will be billed to the Purchaser.
