Terms and Conditions of Purchase - UNITED STATES

1. Parties.
All orders for Goods, as defined below, submitted by ISCO Industries, Inc. or its related affiliates (“ISCO”) to the supplier of the Goods identified on ISCO’s purchase order (“Vendor”) are subject to these Terms and Conditions for Purchase of Goods (“Agreement”).

2. Acceptance.
Together with this Agreement, any purchase order for Goods that ISCO delivers to Vendor becomes a contract upon the earlier of (a) ISCO's receipt of Vendor's written acknowledgement of ISCO's purchase order; provided that, if Vendor's written acknowledgement (including, but not limited to, an invoice generated by Vendor) contains a different description, price, or delivery schedule (“Difference”), then no contract is formed unless and until ISCO provides written approval of such Difference; or (b) the act of Vendor shipping all or any portion of the Goods described in ISCO's purchase order. For purposes of this Agreement, "Goods" includes all products, articles, materials and work associated with the items identified on ISCO’s purchase order and the delivery of such items.

3. Price.
Except as provided in Section 2(a) above, prices will be as set out by ISCO on the face of the purchase order, and may not be modified unless the modification is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of ISCO. ISCO will also be entitled to all discounts and rebates allowed by Vendor's payment and other terms. No subsequent events or changed conditions will allow Vendor to change prices, or to make delivery of the Goods contingent upon ISCO accepting new prices. Unless otherwise agreed or prohibited by law, Vendor will pay all taxes, fees, and duties assessed against Vendor or otherwise relating to the Goods, except federal, provincial, state and local sales taxes.

4. Warranties.
Vendor expressly warrants as follows: (a) the Goods will conform to ISCO’s specifications, whether contained in the purchase order or any other document(s); (b) the Goods delivered will be of good quality, material and workmanship, and otherwise merchantable and free from defects, so as to comply with all implied and actual warranties under applicable law; (c) any pipe and/or fittings, will comply with the ASTM F2620 standard, the PPI TR33 standard, and other technical reports or documents generally accepted by the polyethylene pipe industry regarding the fusion of pipe and fittings; (d) the Goods delivered will be fit for the intended purpose; (e) Vendor has marketable title to the Goods; (f) the Goods will be delivered to ISCO free of any security interests, liens, or other encumbrances; (g) the Goods and the delivery of the Goods shall comply with all applicable federal, provincial, state, and local laws, rules, regulations, and other legal requirements; and (h) with respect to hiring and employee matters, Vendor has and will comply with all applicable employment standards codes and workers’ compensation legislation or equivalent legislation. These warranties will survive beyond the time of any inspection, delivery, acceptance or payment by ISCO for the Goods. ISCO EXPRESSLY REJECTS ANY LIMITATIONS ON ANY OF VENDOR'S WARRANTIES AS MAY RELATE TO THE GOODS.

5. Warranty against infringement.
Vendor warrants that the sale, offer of sale, or use of the Goods will not infringe, either directly, jointly, or indirectly by reason of contributory infringement of or inducement to infringe any patents, trademarks or copyrights. ISCO may reject any Goods that do not satisfy this warranty. Vendor shall defend and shall indemnify and hold harmless ISCO from any costs, claims, or damages arising out of or related to Vendor’s breach of this section.

6. Delivery.
Time is of the essence of this Agreement. Goods must be delivered within the time specified in the purchase order. If Goods are not delivered within such time, or if ISCO reasonably believes that the Goods will not be delivered within such time, then ISCO may reject such Goods, cancel the order, and/or charge Vendor with any excess costs or expenses arising out of or caused by such delay (including, but not limited to, liquidated damages), without penalty or payment for any Goods not actually delivered at the time of cancellation. ISCO's rights and remedies under the Agreement or under applicable law shall not be limited by ISCO’s exercise of any of the remedies described in this section.

7. Packing.
Unless otherwise specified, each shipment will (a) be numbered and labeled with ISCO's order number, stock number, contents and weight; (b) contain an itemized packing slip; and (c) be properly prepaid for shipment so as to secure lowest transportation and insurance rates and to meet the carrier's requirements. No charges will be allowed Vendor for packing, breaking, freight, express or cartage unless specified in the purchase order.

8. Risk of Loss.
Title and risk of loss or damage to the Goods shall not pass to ISCO until such time that ISCO or ISCO’s customer accepts the Goods, whichever occurs first. Any loss, injury or destruction of the Goods will not release Vendor from any obligation under the Agreement or the purchase order. For purposes of this section, "Vendor" includes any agents, employees, subsidiaries, affiliates, shippers, contractors, or suppliers of Vendor, as well as any entity acting on behalf of, under the direction of, or under the control of Vendor.

9. Nonconforming goods; nonconforming tender.
Goods delivered (whether paid for or not) are subject to inspection, testing and approval by ISCO or its customer before acceptance. If ISCO or its customer reasonably believes that any of the following have occurred, then ISCO may reject the Goods or any portion of the Goods, and may return the rejected Goods at Vendor's expense and risk: (a) the Goods do not fully comply with the warranties provided by Vendor; (b) the Goods do not fully comply with applicable specifications; (c) the Goods are shipped contrary to shipping instructions or specifications, or, in the absence of written shipping instructions or specifications, contrary to generally accepted packing and loading standards for such Goods; (d) the quantity of Goods shipped or delivered exceeds the quantity stated in ISCO's Purchase Order; or (e) except as provided in Section 2(a) above, the Goods are tendered conditional upon to Vendor's acknowledgment, invoice, form, contract, terms and conditions, or any other communication inconsistent with, or in addition to, or which purports to alter or limit this Agreement in any way.

10. Damages.
Vendor will be liable for all actual, direct, indirect, special, compensatory, and punitive damages, including but not limited to lost profits and consequential damages, which arise out of or are caused by (a) Vendor's failure to satisfy any of its obligations, warranties, representations, or requirements arising under the Agreement; (b) any defective product or service delivered by Vendor under the Agreement; or (c) Vendor's negligent or wrongful conduct, acts, errors, or omissions under the Agreement. ISCO EXPRESSLY REJECTS ANY LIMITATIONS ON VENDOR'S LIABILITY OR ISCO’S REMEDIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

11. Indemnification.
Vendor shall defend and shall indemnify and hold harmless ISCO, its agents, employees, successors, assigns, affiliated entities, customers, and users of Goods, from and against, all claims, product recalls or withdrawals, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses (including attorney's fees) arising out of or related to (a) Vendor's failure or alleged failure to satisfy any of its obligations, warranties, representations, or requirements arising under this Agreement or the purchase order; (b) any alleged or actual defect in a Good or service, whether latent or patent; or (c) Vendor's alleged or actual negligent or wrongful conduct, acts, errors, or omissions under the Agreement.

12. Insurance.
Vendor shall obtain and maintain, at its own expense, the following insurance coverages: (a) commercial general liability insurance and product liability insurance, as is necessary to cover any claims, product recalls or withdrawals, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses (including attorney's fees) arising out of or related to bodily injury or property damage; and (b) automobile liability insurance. Vendor shall name ISCO as an additional named insured under such policies. The limits under these policies must be at least $1,000,000 per occurrence, $2,000,000 in the aggregate. Vendor may satisfy these limits by obtaining and maintaining primary insurance coverage, or by the aggregate of primary and excess or umbrella insurance coverage. Vendor must provide at least thirty (30) days written notice to ISCO in the event of any cancellation, termination, or modification of the insurance policies required herein.

13. Force Majeure.
The parties understand that causes reasonably beyond Vendor's control may render it unable to perform its obligations under the Agreement. Such causes may include natural catastrophe, war, or terroristic acts. If Vendor should declare that an event under this section has rendered it unable to perform: (a) Vendor must use commercially reasonable efforts to remove or mitigate the effects of any such condition and resume performance as soon as practical; (b) if Vendor's negligence was not a factor in rendering it unable to perform, then Vendor will be excused from performance for as long as the condition exists to a degree that it reasonably prevents Vendor’s performance; and (c) without incurring any liability to Vendor, at its sole discretion, ISCO may seek an alternative supplier for the Goods that Vendor declares it is unable to provide timely due to such cause(s). ISCO may terminate the Agreement without penalty or obligation to Vendor in the event any such delays continues for a period of more than thirty (30) consecutive days. When and if Vendor resumes performance, Vendor may not charge ISCO a price greater than what was set forth in ISCO’s purchase order or otherwise agreed upon in writing.

14. No delegation or assignment; offset.
Vendor may not delegate or assign any duties, rights, or claims under the purchase order or the Agreement without ISCO's prior written consent. All claims for monies which are due or may become due from ISCO will be subject to deduction by ISCO for any setoff or counterclaim, whether actual or potential, arising out of this or any other contract between ISCO and Vendor.

15. Confidentiality.
Vendor acknowledges that the information contained in a purchase order from ISCO, or which Vendor may otherwise obtain from ISCO, including the existence of business relationship between Vendor and ISCO itself, is confidential and is treated as such by ISCO. Such information includes, but is not limited to, customer lists, pricing, marketing plans and information, business plans, and financial information. Vendor may not, without ISCO's prior written consent, disclose to third parties any business, commercial, proprietary, or technical information obtained from ISCO.

16. Entire Agreement.
The Agreement, and the documents and descriptions referred to in Section 2 above, contains the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all other agreements between Vendor and ISCO, whether entered into prior or subsequent to the date of ISCO’s purchase order. UNLESS EXPRESSLY AGREED IN WRITING BY ISCO, NO OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS OTHER THAN THOSE SET OUT HEREIN SHALL FORM A PART OF ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND ANY PROVISIONS CONTAINED IN ANY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, INVOICE, FORM, CONTRACT, TERMS AND CONDITIONS, OR ANY OTHER COMMUNICATION FROM VENDOR THAT ARE INCONSISTENT WITH OR IN ADDITION TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL HAVE NO FORCE OR EFFECT.

17. No Waiver.
Failure of ISCO to insist upon strict performance of this Agreement or to enforce any of its rights will not constitute a waiver of such rights or of any other rights.

18. Severability.
The provisions of this Agreement are intended to be construed so as to be valid, binding, and enforceable to the fullest extent provided by law. However, if any provision of this Agreement is deemed to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the other provisions of this Agreement will remain valid, binding, and enforceable.

19. Changes.
ISCO shall have the right to make changes to the purchase order by a notice in writing to Vendor, and if such change causes an increase or decrease in the amount due under the purchase order or the time required for performance an equitable adjustment may be made and the purchase order modified in writing accordingly. Any claim for adjustment must be asserted by Vendor in writing within fifteen (15) days of the date the change is ordered. Nothing herein shall relieve Vendor from proceeding without delay in the performance of any such changes. THIS AGREEMENT MAY NOT BE MODIFIED OR AMENDED BY ANY COURSE OF DEALING OR PERFORMANCE.

20. Compliance with Law.
Vendor is in compliance with and shall comply with all applicable laws, regulation, and ordinances. Vendor has and shall maintain in effect all the licenses, permissions, authorizations, consents and permits that are required to perform Vendor’s obligations under this Agreement. Vendor shall comply with all export and import laws and regulations of all countries involved in the sale of Goods under this Agreement, and Vendor assumes all responsibility for shipments of Goods requiring any government import clearance. Vendor represents and warrants that it has not and covenants that it will not pay anything of value to any government official in connection with the purchase and sale of the Goods.

21. Applicable Law; Forum Selection.
The Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Manitoba and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein without given effect to principles of conflicts of laws. Vendor and ISCO irrevocably attorn and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Manitoba courts situated in the City of Winnipeg and waive objection to the venue of any proceeding in such court or that such court provides an inconvenient forum. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (the “Convention”) and any other legislation applying the terms of the Convention within a particular jurisdiction are hereby expressly disclaimed with respect to this agreement.

If Vendor should declare that an event under this section has rendered it unable to perform: (a) Vendor must use commercially reasonable efforts to remove or mitigate the effects of any such condition and resume performance as soon as practical; (b) if Vendor's negligence was not a factor in rendering it unable to perform, then Vendor will be excused from performance for as long as the condition exists to a degree that it reasonably prevents Vendor’s performance; and (c) without incurring any liability to Vendor, at its sole discretion, ISCO may seek an alternative supplier for the Goods that Vendor declares it is unable to provide timely due to such cause(s). ISCO may terminate the Agreement without penalty or obligation to Vendor in the event any such delays continues for a period of more than thirty (30) consecutive days. When and if Vendor resumes performance, Vendor may not charge ISCO a price greater than what was set forth in ISCO’s purchase order or otherwise agreed upon in writing.

14. No delegation or assignment; offset.
Vendor may not delegate or assign any duties, rights, or claims under the purchase order or the Agreement without ISCO's prior written consent. All claims for monies which are due or may become due from ISCO will be subject to deduction by ISCO for any setoff or counterclaim, whether actual or potential, arising out of this or any other contract between ISCO and Vendor.

15. Confidentiality.
Vendor acknowledges that the information contained in a purchase order from ISCO, or which Vendor may otherwise obtain from ISCO, including the existence of business relationship between Vendor and ISCO itself, is confidential and is treated as such by ISCO. Such information includes, but is not limited to, customer lists, pricing, marketing plans and information, business plans, and financial information. Vendor may not, without ISCO's prior written consent, disclose to third parties any business, commercial, proprietary, or technical information obtained from ISCO.

16. Entire Agreement.
The Agreement, and the documents and descriptions referred to in Section 2 above, contains the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all other agreements between Vendor and ISCO, whether entered into prior or subsequent to the date of ISCO’s purchase order. UNLESS EXPRESSLY AGREED IN WRITING BY ISCO, NO OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS OTHER THAN THOSE SET OUT HEREIN SHALL FORM A PART OF ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND ANY PROVISIONS CONTAINED IN ANY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, INVOICE, FORM, CONTRACT, TERMS AND CONDITIONS, OR ANY OTHER COMMUNICATION FROM VENDOR THAT ARE INCONSISTENT WITH OR IN ADDITION TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL HAVE NO FORCE OR EFFECT.

17. No Waiver.
Failure of ISCO to insist upon strict performance of this Agreement or to enforce any of its rights will not constitute a waiver of such rights or of any other rights.

18. Severability.
The provisions of this Agreement are intended to be construed so as to be valid, binding, and enforceable to the fullest extent provided by law. However, if any provision of this Agreement is deemed to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the other provisions of this Agreement will remain valid, binding, and enforceable.

19. Changes.
. ISCO shall have the right to make changes to the purchase order by a notice in writing to Vendor, and if such change causes an increase or decrease in the amount due under the purchase order or the time required for performance an equitable adjustment may be made and the purchase order modified in writing accordingly. Any claim for adjustment must be asserted by Vendor in writing within fifteen (15) days of the date the change is ordered. Nothing herein shall relieve Vendor from proceeding without delay in the performance of any such changes. THIS AGREEMENT MAY NOT BE MODIFIED OR AMENDED BY ANY COURSE OF DEALING OR PERFORMANCE.

20. Compliance with Law.
Vendor is in compliance with and shall comply with all applicable laws, regulation, and ordinances. Vendor has and shall maintain in effect all the licenses, permissions, authorizations, consents and permits that are required to perform Vendor’s obligations under this Agreement. Vendor shall comply with all export and import laws and regulations of all countries involved in the sale of Goods under this Agreement, and Vendor assumes all responsibility for shipments of Goods requiring any government import clearance. Vendor represents and warrants that it has not and covenants that it will not pay anything of value to any government official in connection with the purchase and sale of the Goods.

21. Applicable Law; Forum Selection.
The Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Manitoba and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein without given effect to principles of conflicts of laws. Vendor and ISCO irrevocably attorn and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Manitoba courts situated in the City of Winnipeg and waive objection to the venue of any proceeding in such court or that such court provides an inconvenient forum. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (the “Convention”) and any other legislation applying the terms of the Convention within a particular jurisdiction are hereby expressly disclaimed with respect to this agreement.

Terms and Conditions of Purchase (CA) (0515) - 5/11/15
 

Modalités et Conditions D'Achat de Biens - CANADA (French)

1. Parties.
Toutes les commandes de Biens, tel que ce terme est défini ci-après, transmises par ISCO Industries, Inc. ou les membres du même groupe qu’elle (« ISCO ») au fournisseur des Biens indiqués sur le bon de commande d’ISCO (le « Fournisseur ») sont assujetties aux présentes modalités et conditions d’achat de Biens (la « Convention »).

2. Acceptation.
Avec la présente Convention, tout bon de commande de Biens qu’ISCO transmet au Fournisseur devient un contrat dès la première des éventualités suivantes : a) la réception par ISCO de la confirmation écrite du Fournisseur de sa réception du bon de commande d’ISCO. Il est toutefois entendu que si la confirmation écrite du Fournisseur (y compris, notamment, une facture émise par le Fournisseur) contient une description différente des Biens, de leur prix et de leur délai de livraison (les « Différences »), alors aucun contrat n’est formé tant qu’ISCO n’a pas approuvé les Différences par écrit; ou b) l’expédition par le Fournisseur d’une partie ou de la totalité des Biens indiqués sur le bon de commande d’ISCO. Aux fins de la présente Convention, le terme « Biens » désigne tous les produits, articles, matériaux et ouvrages associés aux éléments identifiés dans le bon de commande d’ISCO, et la livraison de ces éléments.

3. Prix.
À l’exception de ce qui est prévu au point a) de la clause 2 ci-dessus, les prix seront indiqués par ISCO à l’endos du bon de commande, et ils ne peuvent être modifiés qu’au moyen d’un document écrit signé par un représentant autorisé d’ISCO. ISCO aura également droit à toutes les réductions et à tous les rabais prévus aux termes des modalités de paiement et autres modalités du Fournisseur. Aucun événement ultérieur ni aucune nouvelle condition ne permettra au Fournisseur de changer les prix ou de faire en sorte que la livraison des Biens soit conditionnelle à l’acceptation par ISCO des nouveaux prix. À moins qu’il n’en soit convenu autrement ou que la loi l’interdise, le Fournisseur paiera l’ensemble des taxes, frais et droits qui lui sont imputés ou qui se rapportent aux Biens, à l’exception des taxes de vente fédérales, provinciales, étatiques et locales.

4. Garanties.
Le Fournisseur garantit expressément ce qui suit : a) les Biens seront conformes aux spécifications d’ISCO indiquées sur le bon de commande ou dans tout autre document; b) les Biens livrés seront de bonne qualité et ils seront fabriqués selon les règles et avec de bons matériaux, et ils seront par ailleurs de qualité marchande et non défectueux, de sorte qu’ils seront conformes à toutes les garanties implicites et effectives selon le droit applicable; c) tout tuyau et/ou raccord sera conforme à la norme ASTM F260, à la norme PPI TR33 et aux autres rapports et documents techniques généralement acceptés par le secteur des tuyaux en polyéthylène concernant l’assemblage par fusion des tuyaux et des raccords; d) les Biens livrés seront adaptés à l’usage prévu; e) le Fournisseur a le titre marchand des Biens; f) les Biens seront livrés à ISCO libres de toute sûreté, priorité ou autre charge; g) les Biens et la livraison des Biens seront conformes à l’ensemble des lois, règles et règlements fédéraux, provinciaux, étatiques et locaux et aux autres exigences prévues par la loi; et h) en ce qui concerne les questions liées à l’embauche et aux employés, le Fournisseur a respecté et il respectera l’ensemble des codes du travail et des lois sur les accidents du travail ou d’autres lois comparables. Ces garanties demeureront valides après toute inspection, livraison, acceptation ou tout paiement des Biens par ISCO. ISCO REFUSE EXPRESSÉMENT TOUTE RESTRICTION RELATIVE À L’UNE OU L’AUTRE DES GARANTIES DU FOURNISSEUR, TELLES QU’ELLES SE RAPPORTENT AUX BIENS.

5. Garantie contre la contrefaçon.
Le Fournisseur garantit que la vente, la mise en vente ou l’utilisation des Biens ne constituera pas, directement, conjointement ou indirectement par complicité de contrefaçon ou par incitation à la contrefaçon, une contrefaçon de brevet, une usurpation de marque de commerce ou une violation de droit d’auteur. ISCO peut refuser tout Bien qui ne satisfait pas à cette garantie. Le Fournisseur défendra, indemnisera et exonérera ISCO relativement à l’ensemble des coûts, réclamations ou dommages qui découlent du défaut du Fournisseur de respecter la présente clause ou qui se rapportent à ce défaut.

6. Livrasion.
Dans la présente Convention, les délais sont de rigueur. Les Biens doivent être livrés dans le délai indiqué dans le bon de commande. Si les Biens ne sont pas livrés dans ce délai ou si ISCO croit raisonnablement que les Biens ne seront pas livrés dans ce délai, alors ISCO peut refuser ces Biens, annuler la commande et/ou facturer au Fournisseur tout coût ou toute dépense excédentaire découlant de ce retard ou causé par ce retard (y compris, notamment, les dommages-intérêts liquidés), sans pénalité ou paiement pour les Biens qui n’auront pas été réellement livrés au moment de l’annulation. Les droits et les recours d’ISCO aux termes de la présente Convention ou en vertu du droit applicable ne seront pas limités par l’exercice, par ISCO, de l’un des recours décrits dans la présente clause.

7. Emballage.
Sauf indication contraire, chaque envoi : a) sera numéroté et portera une étiquette indiquant le numéro de la commande d’ISCO, le numéro de l’article, le contenu et le poids; b) comprendra une fiche d’envoi énumérant les articles; et c) sera dûment payé à l’avance afin d’obtenir les tarifs d’assurance et de transport les plus bas possible et de satisfaire aux exigences du transporteur. Aucuns frais ne pourront être facturés par le Fournisseur pour l’emballage, le fractionnement, le fret, le transport express ou par camionnage, à moins que ces frais ne soient indiqués dans le bon de commande.

8. Risque de perte.
La propriété des Biens et le risque de perte ou d’endommagement des Biens ne seront pas transférés à ISCO tant que les Biens n’ont pas été accepté par ISCO ou par le client de cette dernière, selon la première occurrence. Aucune perte ou destruction des Biens ni aucun dommage causé aux Biens ne libérera le Fournisseur de ses obligations aux termes de la présente Convention ou du bon de commande. Aux fins de la présente clause, le terme « Fournisseur » désigne, entre autres, les mandataires, employés, filiales, expéditeurs, entrepreneurs ou fournisseurs du Fournisseur ou les membres de son groupe, ainsi que toute entité agissant pour le compte du Fournisseur ou dont le Fournisseur a le contrôle.

9. Biens non conformes: remise non conforme.
Les Biens livrés (qu’ils aient été payés ou non) sont soumis à l’inspection, à la mise à l’essai et à l’approbation d’ISCO ou de son client avant d’être acceptés. Si ISCO ou son client croient raisonnablement que l’un ou l’autre des événements suivants est survenu, alors ISCO peut refuser les Biens ou une partie de ceux-ci, et peut retourner les Biens refusés aux frais et aux risques du Fournisseur : a) les Biens ne satisfont pas entièrement aux garanties fournies par le Fournisseur; b) les Biens ne sont pas entièrement conformes aux spécifications applicables; c) les Biens sont expédiés d’une façon qui va à l’encontre des instructions ou des spécifications d’expédition, ou, en l’absence d’instructions ou de spécifications d’expédition écrites, d’une façon qui va à l’encontre des normes d’emballage et de chargement généralement acceptées pour ces Biens; d) la quantité des Biens expédiés ou livrés est supérieure à la quantité indiquée dans le bon de commande d’ISCO; ou e) à l’exception de ce qui est prévu au point a) de la clause 2 ci-dessus, la remise des Biens est conditionnelle à un accusé de réception, une facture, un formulaire, un contrat, des modalités et conditions, ou toute autre communication du Fournisseur qui, de quelque façon que ce soit, ne sont pas conformes à la présente Convention, s’ajoutent à la présente Convention, ou sont censés modifier ou limiter les dispositions de la présente Convention.

10. Dommages.
Le Fournisseur sera responsable de tous les dommages réels, directs, indirects, spéciaux, compensatoires et punitifs, y compris, notamment, la perte de profits, qui découlent a) du défaut du Fournisseur de respecter l’une ou l’autre de ses obligations, garanties, déclarations ou exigences aux termes de la présente Convention; b) de toute lacune d’un service ou d’un produit livré ou fourni par le Fournisseur aux termes de la présente Convention; ou c) des actes de négligence, des transgressions, des erreurs ou des omissions du Fournisseur aux termes de la présente Convention. ISCO REFUSE EXPRESSÉMENT TOUTE RESTRICTION RELATIVE À SES RECOURS OU À LA RESPONSABILITÉ DU FOURNISSEUR AUX TERMES DE LA PRÉSENTE CONVENTION.

11. Indemnisation.
Le Fournisseur défendra, indemnisera et exonérera ISCO, ses mandataires, ses employés, ses successeurs, ses ayants droit, ses clients, les utilisateurs des Biens et les entités membres du groupe d’ISCO relativement à l’ensemble des réclamations, des rappels ou des retraits de produits, des pertes, des obligations, des dommages, des coûts et des dépenses (y compris les honoraires d’avocats) découlant de ce qui suit ou s’y rapportant : a) le défaut ou le défaut présumé du Fournisseur de respecter l’une ou l’autre de ses obligations, garanties, déclarations ou exigences aux termes de la présente Convention ou du bon de commande; b) tout défaut réel ou présumé d’un Bien ou d’un service, que ce défaut soit caché ou apparent; ou c) les actes de négligences, les transgressions, les erreurs ou les omissions, réels ou présumés, du Fournisseur aux termes de la présente Convention.

12. Assurance.
Le Fournisseur soit souscrire et maintenir en vigueur, à ses frais, les assurances suivantes : a) une assurance responsabilité civile entreprise et une assurance responsabilité de produits dont les garanties seront suffisantes pour couvrir les réclamations, les rappels ou retraits de produit, les pertes, les obligations, les dommages, les coûts et les dépenses (y compris les honoraires d’avocat) découlant de lésions corporelles ou de dommages matériels, ou s’y rapportant; et b) une assurance responsabilité civile automobile. Le Fournisseur doit nommer ISCO en tant qu’assuré désigné additionnel aux termes de ces polices. La garantie de ces polices doit être d’au moins 1 M$ par événement et 2 M$ au total. Le Fournisseur peut respecter ces limites en souscrivant et en maintenant une assurance de première ligne ou en combinant une assurance de première ligne avec une assurance de risques successifs ou assurance responsabilité civile complémentaire. Le Fournisseur doit envoyer un préavis écrit d’au moins trente (30) jours à ISCO en cas d’annulation, de résiliation ou de modification des polices d’assurance exigées aux présentes.

13. Force Majeure.
Les parties comprennent que des causes raisonnablement indépendantes de la volonté du Fournisseur peuvent faire en sorte que ce dernier ne soit pas en mesure d’exécuter ses obligations aux termes de la présente Convention. Ces causes peuvent comprendre une catastrophe naturelle, une guerre ou des actes terroristes. Si le Fournisseur déclare qu’un événement prévu dans la présente clause a fait en sorte qu’il n’a pas été en mesure d’exécuter ses obligations : a) le Fournisseur doit déployer des efforts commercialement raisonnables pour éliminer ou limiter les effets de l’un ou l’autre de ces événements et reprendre l’exécution de ses obligations dans les plus brefs délais possible; b) si la négligence du Fournisseur n’est pas en cause, alors le Fournisseur n’aura pas à exécuter ses obligations tant que l’événement en question empêche raisonnablement le Fournisseur d’exécuter ses obligations; et c) sans engager la responsabilité du Fournisseur, ISCO peut, à son gré, chercher un autre fournisseur pour les Biens si le Fournisseur déclare qu’il n’est pas en mesure de fournir les Biens en temps opportun en raison de l’un ou l’autre de ces événements. ISCO peut mettre fin à la présente Convention sans pénalité ou obligation envers le Fournisseur si de tels retards se poursuivent pendant plus de trente (30) jours consécutifs. Si le Fournisseur reprend l’exécution de ses obligations, il pourra imputer à ISCO un prix supérieur à celui qui était indiqué dans le bon de commande d’ISCO ou qui a été convenu autrement par écrit.

14. Aucune délégation ou cession; compensation.
Le Fournisseur ne peut déléguer ou céder des droits, des obligations ou des réclamations au titre du bon de commande ou de la présente Convention sans avoir obtenu au préalable le consentement écrit d’ISCO. Toutes les réclamations relatives à des sommes exigibles ou pouvant être exigibles d’ISCO feront l’objet d’une déduction par ISCO à titre de compensation ou de demande reconventionnelle, qu’elles soient réelles ou potentielles, découlant de la présente Convention ou de tout autre contrat intervenu entre ISCO et le Fournisseur.

15. Confidentialité.
Le Fournisseur reconnaît que les renseignements figurant dans un bon de commande d’ISCO, ou que le Fournisseur pourrait obtenir autrement auprès d’ISCO, y compris l’existence d’une relation d’affaires entre le Fournisseur et ISCO, sont confidentiels et sont traités comme tels par ISCO. Ces renseignements comprennent, notamment, les listes de clients, les prix, les plans de commercialisation et les renseignements à caractère commercial, les plans d’affaires et les renseignements financiers. Le Fournisseur ne peut, sans le consentement écrit préalable d’ISCO, communiquer à des tiers des renseignements commerciaux, exclusifs ou techniques qu’il a obtenus auprès d’ISCO.

16. Entente intégrale.
La présente Convention, avec les documents et les descriptions dont il est fait mention dans la clause 2 ci-dessus, constitue l’entente intégrale intervenue entre les parties relativement à l’objet des présentes et remplace toutes les autres ententes intervenues entre le Fournisseur et ISCO, qu’elles aient été conclues avant ou après la date du bon de commande d’ISCO. À MOINS QU’ISCO N’Y CONSENTE EXPRESSÉMENT PAR ÉCRIT, AUCUNES MODALITÉS ET CONDITIONS AUTRES QUE CELLES QUI SONT ÉNONCÉES AUX PRÉSENTES NE PEUVENT FAIRE PARTIE D’UNE ENTENTE ENTRE LES PARTIES, ET TOUTE DISPOSITION D’UNE DÉCLARATION, D’UNE FACTURE, D’UN FORMULAIRE, D’UN CONTRAT, DE MODALITÉS OU CONDITIONS OU DE TOUTE AUTRE COMMUNICATION DU FOURNISSEUR, QUI N’EST PAS CONFORME À LA PRÉSENTE CONVENTION OU QUI S’AJOUTE À CELLE-CI SERA NULLE ET SANS EFFET.

17. Non-renonciation.
Le défaut d’ISCO d’exiger la mise en application vigoureuse de la présente Convention ou d’exercer l’un ou l’autre de ses droits ne constituera pas une renonciation à ces droits ou à tout autre droit.

18. Divisibilité.
Les dispositions de la présente Convention sont censées être interprétées comme étant valides, contraignantes et exécutoires dans toute la mesure permise par la loi. Toutefois, si une des dispositions de la présente Convention est jugée invalide ou non exécutoire par un tribunal compétent, les autres dispositions de la présente Convention continueront d’être valides, contraignantes et exécutoires.

19. Modifications.
ISCO peut modifier le bon de commande au moyen d’un avis écrit au Fournisseur. Si cette modification entraîne une hausse ou une baisse du montant dû aux termes du bon de commande ou un changement dans les délais d’exécution, un ajustement équitable pourrait être effectué et le bon de commande pourrait être modifié en conséquence. Toute demande d’ajustement doit être présentée par écrit par le Fournisseur dans les quinze (15) jours suivant la date où la modification est demandée. Aucune disposition des présentes ne dispense le Fournisseur de procéder sans délai à la mise à exécution de l’une ou l’autre de ces modifications. LA PRÉSENTE CONVENTION NE PEUT ÊTRE MODIFIÉE EN VERTU D’HABITUDES COMMERCIALES OU DE MODALITÉS D’EXÉCUTION ÉTABLIES.

20. Conformité avec les lois.
Le Fournisseur respecte et respectera l’ensemble des lois, des règlements et des ordonnances applicables. Le Fournisseur maintient et maintiendra en vigueur toutes les licences, permissions et autorisations et tous les consentements et permis qui sont requis pour exécuter ses obligations aux termes de la présente Convention. Le Fournisseur respectera l’ensemble des lois et des règlements en matière d’exportation et d’importation de tous les pays où des Biens sont vendus aux termes de la présente Convention, et le Fournisseur assume l’entière responsabilité des expéditions de Biens à l’égard desquelles un dédouanement à l’importation est requis. Le Fournisseur déclare et garantit qu’il n’a jamais donné une chose de valeur à un représentant d’un gouvernement dans le cadre de l’achat et de la vente des Biens, et il s’engage à ne jamais le faire.

21. Droit applicable; choix d’une instance.
La présente Convention sera régie par les lois de la province du Manitoba et les lois fédérales du Canada qui y sont applicables, et elle sera interprétée conformément à l’ensemble de ces lois, compte non tenu des principes en matière de conflits de lois. Le Fournisseur et ISCO s’en remettent exclusivement à la compétence des tribunaux du Manitoba qui sont situés dans la ville de Winnipeg et ils renoncent à s’opposer au traitement de toute action en justice devant un tel tribunal et à toute prétention selon laquelle un tel tribunal constitue un lieu inapproprié pour le traitement d’une action en justice. La Convention des Nations Unies sur les contrats de vente internationale de marchandises (la « Convention des Nations Unies ») et toute autre loi qui applique les modalités de la Convention des Nations Unies dans un territoire donné fait l’objet, par les présentes, d’une renonciation expresse relativement à la présente Convention.

Performance:

Limited Warranty:
Goods manufactured by Seller are warranted only to the extent that Seller will furnish replacement parts, free of charge, F.O.B. shipping location; or at the option of Seller, refund the purchase price of any product which, when properly stored, transported, installed and used as recommended by Seller and in accordance with the best installation and operating practices and techniques, is proven to be defective in material or workmanship within one (1) year from the date of shipment. Buyer shall provide Seller immediate notice of any defect and allow Seller the opportunity to inspect the same at the place of installation.

Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy against Seller for a breach of this warranty shall be at Seller’s option, either to return to Buyer the amounts paid for such services, or for Seller to re-perform the allegedly defective services.

THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE MADE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND BUYER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT EXCEPT FOR SUCH LIMITED WARRANTIES, THE GOODS AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” SELLER DOES NOT MAKE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND THOSE WARRANTIES ARISING FROM ANY TRADE USAGE OR FROM ANY COURSE OF DEALING OR PERFORMANCE.

Further, Buyer acknowledges that to the extent Seller has made any representation which is not otherwise expressly stated in writing, the Buyer has been provided with an opportunity to independently verify the accuracy of any such representation.

Indemnification:
Buyer shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Seller and its agents and employees from and against any cause of action, suit, claim, damage, loss and expense, including attorney’s fees, (including without limitation the personal injury, death or damage to property of any third person) arising out of or in connection with the sale, transportation, installation, application, use or repair of the goods by Buyer, whether caused in part by the concurrent and/or contributory negligence of Seller or its agents, employees or suppliers. The provisions of this paragraph shall survive the consummation of any sale or other transaction between Buyer and Seller.

Limitation of Liability:
IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE TO BUYER FOR ANY BODILY INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR ANY OTHER LOSS, DAMAGE, COST OF REPAIRS, OR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR LIQUIDATED DAMAGES INCURRED BY BUYER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST BUSINESS OR PROFITS, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), INDEMNITY, CONTRIBUTION, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE DESIGN, MANUFACTURE, SALE, TRANSPORTATION, INSTALLATION, USE OR REPAIR OF THE GOODS SOLD BY SELLER.

THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF WARRANTIES, REMEDIES, DAMAGES OR LIABILITY SET FORTH ABOVE ARE INTENDED TO APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

Taxes:
Prices do not include any present or future federal, state, or local taxes unless specifically stated. It is the responsibility of Buyer to assume all taxes.

Severability:
If any provision hereof is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If a court finds that any provision hereof is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid or enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed and enforced as so limited.

Non-Waiver:
The waiver by Seller of any breach of any provision contained herein shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such provision on any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision contained herein.

Governing Law and Venue:
These terms and conditions, and any order subject thereto, shall be deemed to have been entered into in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and all matters arising out of or relating to it shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Kentucky without giving effect to principles of conflicts of laws.

(i) the replacement of the Goods or the supply of equivalent Goods;
(ii) the repair of such Goods;
(iii) the payment of the cost of replacing the Goods or of acquiring equivalent Goods; or
(iv) the payment of the cost of having the Goods repaired; and

Further, if any provision of this Agreement is affected by the implied warranties described in this clause, that provision will apply to the fullest extent available under the law.

Liability of Seller.
To the fullest extent available under the law, Seller shall be under no liability to Customer in respect of any loss or damage (including consequential loss or damage) which may be suffered or incurred or which may arise directly or indirectly in respect of goods or services supplied pursuant to this Agreement or in respect of a failure or omission on the part of Seller to comply with its obligations under this Agreement.

The obligations of Seller and Customer under this Agreement are suspended to the extent that an Unforeseen Event affects them, as long as the Unforeseen Event continues. The occurrence of an Unforeseen Event does not suspend the obligation of Customer to pay any money under the Terms. A party claiming an Unforeseen Event must use their best endeavors to remove, overcome or minimize the effects of that Unforeseen Event as quickly as possible. If an Unforeseen Event continues for more than thirty (30) days, either party may terminate this Agreement by notice in writing to the other party.

Severability:
If any provision hereof is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If a court finds that any provision hereof is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid or enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed and enforced as so limited.

Non-Waiver:
The waiver by Seller of any breach of any provision contained herein shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such provision on any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision contained herein.

Les biens fabriqués par le Vendeur ne sont garantis que dans la mesure où ce dernier fournira des pièces de rechange, sans frais, FAB au lieu d’expédition, ou remboursera, à son gré, le prix d’achat de tout produit qui, même s’il est entreposé, transporté, installé et utilisé de façon adéquate, tel que recommandé par le Vendeur et conformément aux meilleures pratiques et techniques opérationnelles et d’installation, s'avère défectueux en raison d'un défaut de matériau ou de fabrication dans un délai d’un (1) an suivant la date d’expédition. L’Acheteur doit immédiatement aviser le Vendeur de tout défaut et permettre au Vendeur d’inspecter le produit à l’endroit où ce dernier a été installé.
