Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) apply to products sold by OrganaBio, LLC (“Seller”) to Buyer. By submitting any order to Seller and purchasing Seller’s products (the “Products”), Buyer agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. ANY TERMS, CONDITIONS, COVENANTS, OBLIGATIONS OR OTHER STATEMENTS MADE ORALLY OR CONTAINED IN ANY ORDER FORM OR OTHER DOCUMENT SUBMITTED OR USED BY SELLER OR BUYER WILL NOT AMEND, MODIFY, ALTER OR CHANGE THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND ANY SUCH TERMS SUMBITTED BY BUYER WHICH ARE INCONSISTENT WITH, DIFFERENT FROM AND/OR IN ADDITION TO, THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ARE REJECTED AND OBJECTED TO, AND SHALL BE VOID AND OF NO FORCE OR EFFECT.
Seller may accept or reject any Buyer order for Products in its sole discretion. A Buyer order will be deemed accepted by Seller only when Seller provides written confirmation of order acceptance, or a Sales Order, to Buyer.
Pricing and Payment Terms
The price applicable to any order accepted by Seller shall be the price in effect on the date the Buyer orders the Product. Payment is due in full at the time Buyer orders Product. With regard to any order which Seller rejects, Seller will not process payment or will refund payment to the Buyer within fifteen (15) days of Seller’s rejection. If Seller has separately agreed in writing to invoice Buyer for any Product, payment shall be due within thirty (30) days following the date of Seller’s invoice. All claims by Buyer shall be made by written notice to Seller in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, and no offset or deduction from any invoice is permitted. Acceptance by Seller of bank draft, check, or other media of payment is subject to immediate collection of the full face amount thereof.
Seller may, in its sole discretion, require cash or satisfactory security prior to shipments or deliveries hereunder. Buyer agrees to pay all costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees, incurred by Seller in the collection of any sum payable by Buyer to Seller.
If Buyer uses a Credit Card to purchase Products, BUYER AGREES TO NOT CHARGE BACK ITS CARD for ANY reason. If Buyer wishes to return or seek a refund with respect to a Product purchased from Seller using its credit card, Buyer must follow the return/refund policy and procedures set forth under these Terms and Conditions. In the event Buyer breaches this commitment and issues a charge back to its credit card for all or partial amounts paid for the Products, Buyer agrees to an administrative service fee of five hundred ($500.00) dollars, which Buyer agrees to pay in addition to the amount sought to be charged back. Violation of this paragraph by Buyer is a material breach of these Terms and Conditions and in Seller’s sole discretion, Seller may terminate and cancel any order of Products from Buyer currently in process or on delivery and may offset against any payments made by Buyer with respect to such canceled order any and all amounts Buyer may owe to Seller arising from any chargebacks pursuant to this paragraph.
If Buyer breaches any term of the Terms and Conditions or any other contractual obligation in favor of Seller, (a) Seller may choose to defer any or all further shipments or other performance of any other contractual obligation in favor of Buyer until Buyer cures its breach, and (b) Seller may, by delivery of written notice to Buyer describing the breach, immediately terminate any other contractual obligation to Buyer. In the event of a termination, all outstanding payment obligations of, or other amounts owed by, Buyer to Seller shall be due and payable no later than fifteen (15) days after delivery of notice of termination. In addition, in the event that Buyer fails to make any payment when due, Seller shall have the right to offset any and all outstanding payment obligations of, or other amounts owed by, Buyer to Seller against any outstanding payment obligations of, or other amounts owed by, Seller or any of its affiliates to Buyer.
In addition to the purchase price, Buyer shall pay Seller any and all sales and other taxes of every kind imposed by any federal, state, foreign or local government that Seller may be required to pay or collect with respect to the purchase, sale, transportation, storage, delivery or use of the Products, unless Buyer in advance provides Seller with a properly completed tax exemption certificate acceptable to the applicable taxing authority for any tax from which Buyer claims exemption.
For fresh leukapheresis products, a 50% up-front, non-refundable reservation fee may be charged to Buyer at the time that Seller accepts an order from Buyer. This fee is due immediately upon invoice. In addition, leukapheresis scheduling requests that have less than a two (2) week (i.e., 10 business days) lead time may incur a $200 fee for expedited scheduling. Fees will be assessed at the sole discretion of Seller.
Once Seller accepts an order from Buyer, Buyer shall have no right to modify or cancel such order without Seller’s written consent and payment to Seller of all costs and expenses Seller incurs if it agrees to such change or cancellation. For the avoidance of doubt, for leukapheresis products, if Buyer modifies or cancels a collection within two (2) weeks (i.e., 10 business days) of the collection date once a donor is scheduled, Buyer will pay Seller 50% of the cost of Product. If Buyer modifies or cancels a collection within three (3) business days of collection, Buyer will pay Seller 100% of the cost of Product.
Once Product is shipped pursuant to an order accepted by Seller, such Product may not be returned to Seller. Special or custom order items may not be canceled or returned, and no refund will be made. Risk of loss and title to all Products shall transfer to Buyer upon Seller’s delivery of the Products to the carrier. All orders are shipped via Seller’s recommended carriers unless an alternative agreement has been arranged with the Buyer. Applicable freight, handling, insurance and export charges will be added to Buyer’s invoice or invoiced separately. If another carrier is specified by Buyer, and Seller agrees in writing to utilize such carrier, a carrier account number may be provided by Buyer. For all Product sales, Buyer shall be responsible for all carrier fees and costs and shall be responsible for making any claims to the carrier for lost or damaged shipments of Products and shall hold Seller harmless from any such claims.
Any specified delivery dates are estimates only and do not represent a promise by Seller to deliver Products at a date certain.
Failure of Seller or Buyer, as applicable, to fulfill its obligations hereunder when due, other than a failure to pay when due any amounts due the other party hereunder, if caused by (a) fire, storm, flood, strike, lockout, accident, act of war or terrorism, riot, civil commotion, embargo, spread of pandemic disease or similar circumstances, (b) any regulation, law, or restriction of any governmental department, commission, board, bureau, agency, court, or other instrumentality of any supranational organization of sovereign states, country, state, province, territory, commonwealth, municipality, or other political subdivision thereof (a "Governmental Authority"), any seizure or requisition of Products by any Governmental Authority, or any compliance with a demand or request for Products for purposes of national or supranational defense, (c) inability of Seller to obtain any required raw material, energy source, equipment, labor or transportation, at prices and on terms deemed by Seller to be reasonable and practicable, or (d) any other cause or contingency beyond the reasonable control of that party (whether or not of the same kind or nature as the causes or contingencies above enumerated), shall not subject the party failing to perform to any liability to the other during the period such inability to make or take delivery shall exist. Quantities so affected may, at the option of either party, be eliminated from the purchase without liability, but the Terms and Conditions shall remain otherwise unaffected.
In the event of Seller's inability, for any reason, to supply the quantities of Products contemplated by an order from Buyer, Seller may allocate its available supply among Seller and its buyers, on such basis as Seller may deem fair and practical without liability to Buyer for any failure of performance that may result therefrom other than a refund of amounts paid for Products that were not supplied to Buyer.
