1. These terms govern the sale, license or delivery of any goods (including licenses) or services (hereinafter, “Items”) as specified on the front page hereof (the “Order”) from Biodex to the purchaser (“Buyer”). Acceptance of this Order is limited to these terms and conditions. Any proposal for additional or different terms and conditions is rejected.
Invoices shall contain item number and/or description, quantity, and unit price. Buyer shall pay undisputed invoices no later than 30 days from date of the invoices, or prepayment shall be required if the parties so agree. If reimbursable travel expenses are invoiced, Biodex shall submit an itemization and documentation of any such expenses. Payments shall be in US Dollars, or as otherwise specified on the invoice. Biodex will not be responsible for any currency rate changes. Orders for standard inventory Items may be cancelled with a restocking charge of 25% if cancelled within 7 days from ordering date. Orders for non-standard Items (parts and/or systems requiring engineering) and orders that have shipped may not be cancelled or returned. Where Buyer wishes to pay by credit card, any costs or fees incurred by Biodex in those transactions will be added to the Buyer’s payment owed to Biodex.
All amounts exclude sales, services, or withholding taxes, or customs duties, and other taxes and charges, insurance, and shipping costs and special packaging requested by Buyer, if any. If any withholding taxes apply, Buyer will gross up the invoiced amount to ensure that, after such withholding, Biodex receives the full amount invoiced. Buyer will supply Biodex with an appropriate tax exemption certificate, if Buyer claims exemption from any tax, charge or duty.
Delivery will be EXW (Incoterms 2010) Biodex’s site. Biodex will estimate delivery dates and will not be in breach of its obligations, or liable, to Buyer because of any partial delivery or because of any delivery made within a reasonable time after the estimated delivery date. The Items will be delivered for shipment in standard commercial packaging. Special or export packaging may be separately invoiced.
5.1. Biodex warrants that (a) Items will be free from defect in design, workmanship and materials, and when used in accordance with Biodex’s instructions and requirements, will perform substantially in accordance with Biodex’s published technical specifications; and (b) services will be performed in a professional and workmanlike manner consistent with generally accepted industry standards (“Warranty”). The Warranty is valid for claims received by Biodex within twelve (12) months from the delivery date of the affected Items (longer for selected items if specifically indicated by Biodex in writing), and the services warranty is valid for claims received within ninety (90) days from performance of the services (each a, “Warranty Period”).
5.2 If Biodex receives written notice of a claim within the first year following the Delivery Date, and subject to the subsequent clauses, Biodex will provide the necessary labor and parts to either repair or, at Biodex’s discretion, replace any component. This replacement or repair will be carried out if, upon examination by Biodex, the component is found to have been defective on the Delivery Date. If the defective component is classified as a “purchaser Installable Part,” (such as, displays, computers and their components, straps, pads, pedals, seats, batteries, hand grips, attachments, pendants, etc.) Biodex will supply that part to the Purchaser, and the Purchaser will assume responsibility for the labor and other expenses associated with re-installing the repaired or replacement “purchaser Installable Part” provided by Biodex. If the defective component is NOT categorized as a “purchaser Installable Part” (such as, dynamometers, electrical components and mechanical components within the base covers or drawer), Purchaser shall supply Biodex with pictures or video of the reported issue (when requested by Biodex), so Biodex can determine the cause of reported issue and possible faulty part/parts needed to repair or at Biodex’s discretion, replace any component. In such case, Biodex will cover the labor and other expenses associated with both the removal and re-installation of the defective part/parts. It’s important to note that Biodex will not be accountable for the labor or other expenses related to removing or re-installing defective parts for Purchasers located in remote areas of Alaska or Canada. For specific details regarding Biodex service areas, please get in touch with Biodex directly.
5.3. Buyer has no Warranty rights for contaminated Items or defects caused by (a) use of the Items with other goods or equipment not expressly specified in writing by Biodex as suited for use with the Items; (b) Buyer’s failure to follow Biodex’s instructions or to operate the Items within their design specification; (c) acts or omissions of persons other than Biodex or its authorized representatives; (d) installation or maintenance of Items by someone other than Biodex or persons certified by Biodex; (e) abuse, use at an unsafe or not suitable site; (f) Force Majeure; or (f) normal wear and tear.
5.4. Repairs or replacement under warranty will be warranted for the remaining duration of the original Warranty Period. Repairs outside of Warranty will be warranted for ninety (90) days.
