Terms and Conditions
By placing an order (via purchase order or otherwise) in connection with the quote ("Quote") provided to you, you accept the Quote and the terms and conditions set forth below, and agree that the same shall constitute a valid and binding contract (the "Agreement") between you and Network Outlet.
PURCHASE AND SALE OF EQUIPMENT
Network Outlet will sell to you, and you will purchase from Network Outlet, the personal property (the "Equipment") shown on the Quote for the total sales price (the "Sales Price") specified thereon.
Upon placement of an order, you will pay to Network Outlet any deposit specified on the Quote. You agree to pay to Network Outlet the unpaid balance of the Sales Price within ten days after delivery of the Equipment.
Unless stated otherwise on the Quote, you will pay to Network Outlet all charges for transportation and transit insurance to the delivery location. In any event, you are responsible for payment of all rigging and drayage charges, structural alterations, rental of heavy equipment and other expenses necessary to place the Equipment at the desired installation site.
You also agree to pay any applicable taxes, fees or other charges (together with related interest and penalties not arising solely from Network Outlet negligence) imposed or assessed with respect to the Sales Price or other charges paid hereunder, or on the Equipment. This includes all sales taxes, but not taxes based upon Network Outlets’ net income.
Network Outlet will invoice you for the Sales Price. However, receipt of an invoice is not a condition to timely payment. Payment will be made in U.S. Dollars to Network Outlets’ address set forth in the invoice or to such other place as Network Outlet may designate in writing. Any payment not made by the due date will accrue interest, from the due date and until it is paid, at the lower of 18% simple interest per annum or the maximum rate allowed by law.
Billing will be displayed as Network Outlet’s parent company, Abacus Solutions. All payment terms listed here are applicable to both Network Outlet and Abacus Solutions.
DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION
Network Outlet will arrange delivery of the Equipment and use reasonable efforts to meet the estimated shipment date specified on the Quote. If a date is not specified, delivery will be made on such date as is consistent with Equipment availability and Network Outlets’ normal business practices.
You agree to accept delivery of Equipment upon its arrival at the delivery location, and to furnish all labor required for unpacking and placing the Equipment in the desired location at the installation site. Unless stated otherwise on the Quote, you are responsible for all set-up and installation of the Equipment. If Network Outlet is responsible for installation, you will allow Network Outlet or its designee to perform such work commencing upon delivery of the Equipment or as otherwise agreed.
If the delivered Equipment includes features not specified on the Quote, other than standard features generally provided by the manufacturer at no extra cost, Network Outlet will have the right to remove or deactivate such features at its expense at a mutually convenient time.
Any software listed on the Quote will be subject to your separate license agreement with the owner or distributor ("licensor") except as the agreement may conflict with the terms of this Agreement. You will comply with all nonconflicting terms and look solely to the licensor for satisfaction of all claims and warranties relating to the software.
TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS
You will receive title to the Equipment (excluding any software), free and clear of all encumbrances, upon full payment of the Sales Price. Network Outlet will be responsible for all risk of loss and damage to the Equipment (other than due to your negligence or willful misconduct) until delivery of the Equipment to the loading dock at the designated delivery location. After that, you will be responsible for insuring the Equipment.
UPGRADE OF EQUIPMENT
If the Equipment consists of a feature, device or model upgrade for other equipment (an "Upgrade"), all parts removed as part of the Upgrade will become the property of Network Outlet unless otherwise stated on the Quote. You will be responsible for assuring the delivery of such removed parts to Network Outlet, in good working order and with good and clear title, upon installation of the Upgrade, but in no event later than ten days after your receipt of the Equipment.
All equipment purchased via Network Outlet comes with a standard 3-year warranty unless explicitly stated otherwise on the invoice. Warranties are limited to “end-user” buyers and do not apply to orders placed by “resellers”.
This Warranty is not transferable, except upon the written approval of the Company, in its sole discretion;
If the Equipment becomes defective or damaged during the period of this Warranty, the Company will repair or replace it at Company’s sole discretion.
There are no other warranties, express or implied, which have been made by the Company in connection with the Equipment.
This Warranty does not cover and shall be void for (a) defects or damages resulting from fire or theft, (b) defects, damages, or loss resulting from intentional misuse, abuse, neglect, or alterations by, or directed by, the owner of the device, and (c) defects or damages resulting from service or repair by anyone other than the Company or acts of God or other force majuere events.
Resellers are those wishing to purchase equipment from Network Outlet to then sell to another company. For those who intend to resell the equipment versus purchase it for their own explicit use, the warranty supplied by Network Outlet is 90 days.
