SITECH hereby rejects the terms of any purchase order or other document submitted by Client, unless the document is signed by the General Manager of SITECH. The placing of an order with SITECH or the receipt or acceptance of Goods or Services by Client constitutes Client's acceptance of these Terms exactly as written.
2. Order and Delivery of Goods or Services. All orders for Goods or Services are subject to credit approval and final acceptance by SITECH in its sole discretion. If Client requests partial shipment of its order for Goods or Services, payment for the partial order must be made pursuant to Section 6 below. Client acknowledges that estimated delivery dates for Goods are estimates only; actual delivery dates depend on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, the production schedules of manufacturers. SITECH will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet estimated delivery dates and shall keep Client advised of the status of delivery, but SITECH shall have no liability for any loss associated with delay in the delivery of Goods. In addition, SITECH shall have no liability for any delay in performance of Services or delivery of Goods caused by any circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, delays caused by acts of God, acts of war or terrorism, fire or other casualty, storms or adverse weather, strikes, labor shortages or disturbances, shortages of materials, manufacturer delays, theft or vandalism, transport and handling accidents, or revisions to laws, regulations or governmental requirements.
3. Cancellation. Client may cancel all or part of any purchase order for Goods once a purchase order is issued to SITECH only if written notice of cancellation is received by SITECH at least 30 days before the scheduled delivery date of the Goods. In such instance, Client shall pay for any special work or customization performed by SITECH or its suppliers prior to SITECH's receipt of the written cancellation notice.
4. Returns. Returns require prior written authorization from SITECH. No returns, except for Goods needing repair, will be accepted unless Client notifies SITECH of its request to return within seven days of Client's receipt of Goods, and SITECH receives the returned Goods within 30 days from Client's receipt of Goods. Any returned Goods must be new and in resalable condition. Returns must be shipped pre-paid by Client, unless otherwise approved in writing by the General Manager of SITECH.

Pricing for future orders is subject to change without notice. Client will promptly pay to SITECH any taxes that SITECH is required to collect with respect to the purchase of Goods or Services, including, but not limited to, value added, personal property, sales, use, and similar taxes ("Taxes"). For any Taxes from which Client claims exemption, Client shall provide SITECH with properly completed exemption certificates and any documentation needed to validate the exemption.

SITECH may, in its sole discretion, at any time: (a) revoke credit; (b) modify terms and conditions of credit; (c) require payment in advance; and/or (d) withhold Goods, completed Services or scheduled Services until receipt of payment. If Client fails to pay for Goods or Services as and when due, Client shall pay a late charge of 1.5% of the invoice balance each month until charges are paid in full, and Client shall pay SITECH all reasonable attorneys' fees and collection costs incurred by SITECH. In addition to any other right of set-off or recoupment SITECH has under applicable law, Client agrees that, with respect to any amounts due from Client or Client's affiliates to SITECH or SITECH's affiliates, SITECH and its affiliates may set-off such amounts against any amounts owing to Client or Client's affiliates. If Client requests customization of Goods, Client agrees to pay all parts and labor costs SITECH incurs in customizing the Goods, regardless of whether or not Client completes the purchase of the customized Goods. Client must pick up its equipment from SITECH's facility within two business days after notification from SITECH of completion of Services. If Client's equipment is not picked up within two business days after such notification, Client will be liable for storage charges of up to $300.00 per day from the date of completion of Services until Client's equipment is picked up.

SITECH's liability during the applicable manufacturer's warranty period is limited to servicing any Goods returned to SITECH by Client for that purpose, and to replacing any defective part, whether the defective part is returned or not, all in accordance with and subject to the manufacturer's warranty. The warranties described herein apply only to Client and are non-transferable; SITECH shall have no liability to Client's successors, assigns, or subsequent purchasers.

(c) Services. If Client is purchasing Services from SITECH, the Services will be completed in a good and workmanlike manner and will meet the manufacturer's specifications at the time the Services are completed. SITECH makes no further warranty, express or implied, with respect to Services once the Goods on which the Services have been performed have been accepted by Client. If the replacement parts used by SITECH in connection with the provision of Services include a manufacturer's warranty, SITECH will pass such warranty through to Client to the extent permitted by the terms of the manufacturer's warranty. SITECH's warranty for Services will be voided in the event of any of the following: misuse or abuse of Goods by Client, subsequent repairs performed by Client or vendors other than SITECH, use beyond ordinary wear and tear, failure to maintain and operate Goods in accordance with the maintenance and operations manual of the manufacturer (including, but not limited to, use of fluids that do not meet the manufacturer's standards, or failure to maintain fluid levels recommended by the manufacturer), or damage due to theft, vandalism or casualty.

The parties recognize that the pricing associated with Goods and Services reflects this allocation of risk and is the basis of the bargain between the parties. The foregoing limitations shall be valid and enforceable, notwithstanding any alleged failure of essential purpose of the limited remedies set forth herein. Any and all claims arising out of or relating to the Goods and/or Services will be barred unless a legal proceeding is commenced within one (1) year from completion of the Services or delivery of the Goods to Client.

If any provision in these Terms is found to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining provisions in these Terms shall remain in full force and effect. A party's waiver of any breach will not constitute a waiver of any different or subsequent breach. No employment, agency, joint venture, or similar arrangement is created or intended between Client and SITECH. SITECH is an EEO/Affirmative Action Employer.

1. SITECH Southwest, LLC (“SITECH”) is issuing a Purchase Order to the vendor identified thereon (“Vendor”) to purchase certain goods and/or services as more particularly described thereon (the “G&S”). These Purchase Order Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern, and are an essential part of, the Purchase Order between SITECH and Vendor. For ease of reference, the Purchase Order and the Terms are collectively referred to herein as the “PO.”
2. The PO governs the rights and liabilities of SITECH and Vendor and is the sole and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the G&S (unless a separate agreement relating specifically to the G&S is executed by the General Manager of SITECH). SITECH hereby rejects the terms of any document submitted by Vendor; these Terms may not be modified by any document issued by Vendor or by the parties’ course of dealing, custom or usage, but only by an agreement signed by the General Manager of SITECH. These Terms shall apply even where SITECH accepts delivery of G&S without reservation, having knowledge of conflicting or deviating Vendor terms and conditions. Acknowledgement, acceptance, shipment or performance of any part of the PO by Vendor constitutes acceptance of the entire PO, including these Terms, exactly as written.
3. If the PO is for procurement of ongoing G&S from Vendor over a period of time, these Terms shall apply to all such G&S and invoices for such G&S shall be submitted to SITECH not more frequently than once every thirty days. Payment terms for undisputed amounts are net thirty days from SITECH’s acceptance of the G&S or receipt of invoice, whichever is later. SITECH shall have the right to terminate the PO, or any portion thereof, without cause on ten days’ notice. The applicable PO number must appear on all invoices, packages and correspondence pertaining to the PO. Whether or not separately stated on Vendor’s invoice or on the PO, Vendor shall be responsible for remitting to the appropriate taxing authority any state or local transaction privilege tax and/or sales tax related to the G&S provided by Vendor. Any other federal, state, or local taxes of any type assessed on Vendor due to the provision of the G&S shall be the sole responsibility of Vendor.
4. Vendor must pack all goods delivered pursuant to the PO in accordance with good commercial practices. Unless otherwise specifically provided on the PO, Vendor must ship goods in the most cost-effective manner, FOB SITECH’s designated delivery point. Time is of the essence with respect to delivery or completion of the G&S, as applicable. If the G&S are not delivered or completed by the date stated in the PO, SITECH will have all rights and remedies available at law and in equity.
5. All G&S are subject to inspection, testing, approval and acceptance by SITECH within a reasonable time after delivery or performance. SITECH’s payment of an invoice shall not constitute acceptance of the applicable G&S, and SITECH's inspection, testing, approval, acceptance or use of the G&S shall not affect Vendor's obligations and warranties herein. SITECH may reject any G&S that are, in SITECH’s judgment, defective and/or do not conform to the terms or specifications of the PO. If G&S are non-conforming, SITECH will have all rights and remedies available at law and in equity.
6. Vendor shall not invoice SITECH for any charges in excess of those set forth on the PO. SITECH may request changes, additions, or deletions to the PO by notice to Vendor. If such changes, additions or deletions would require additional charges or alter the delivery or completion schedule, Vendor must obtain prior written approval from SITECH before proceeding with the changes or SITECH will have no obligation to pay such additional charges or accept such schedule alterations. SITECH shall have the right to audit Vendor records related to the G&S Vendor is providing to SITECH.
7. Vendor warrants to SITECH, its successors, assigns, employees, agents and clients, that all G&S will: (a) conform to the terms of the PO and all applicable samples, drawings, standards, specifications, performance criteria and other descriptions; (b) be merchantable, safe and appropriate for the purpose for which such G&S are normally used; (c) not infringe upon the rights of any third parties; (d) comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations; (e) not be subject to any liens, encumbrances, security interests, or other third party claims (Vendor must deliver written lien releases if requested by SITECH); (f) be new (unless otherwise noted on the PO); and (g) with respect to services, be performed diligently, in a good and workmanlike manner in accordance with the highest standards in Vendor’s trade or industry.
8. Before commencing work for SITECH, Vendor must obtain, and must maintain in effect, workers’ compensation insurance (in accordance with applicable law), employer’s liability insurance (not less than $1,000,000 per person, per accident), automobile liability insurance (owned, non-owned and hired, with a combined single limit of $1,000,000), and general liability insurance ($1,000,000 per occurrence, $2,000,000 general aggregate), all in accordance with SITECH’s standard insurance requirements. Vendor’s required policies shall be primary, and any insurance maintained by SITECH shall be excess and non-contributory. Vendor must provide an insurance certificate to SITECH evidencing all of the foregoing before commencing work for SITECH. Additionally, Vendor’s required policies must be endorsed to name SITECH parties as additional insureds and to include waivers of subrogation, and such endorsements shall be provided to SITECH along with the insurance certificate. SITECH’s standard insurance requirements do not limit or qualify the liabilities, obligations, warranties or indemnities of Vendor hereunder.
9. Vendor shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless SITECH, its subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and their respective owners, officers, directors, employees and agents for, from and against all claims, liabilities, losses, demands, penalties, forfeitures, suits, damages, judgments, costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees and costs arising out of or related to the PO, the G&S or the Vendor’s actions or inactions related to the same. In no event shall SITECH be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, punitive, exemplary or consequential damages, regardless of whether or not SITECH was advised of the possibility of such damages.
10. In the event of any breach of the PO by Vendor, SITECH shall have all rights and remedies available at law and in equity in addition to any rights or remedies specifically described herein, including but not limited to one or more of the following: (a) SITECH may reject non-conforming G&S, and Vendor shall refund the price of such non-conforming G&S and all costs related thereto; (b) SITECH may require Vendor to replace or correct any such non-conforming G&S at no additional cost to SITECH; (c) SITECH may replace any non-conforming G&S from another source, and/or take corrective action with respect to any non-conforming G&S, and obtain reimbursement from Vendor for all costs incurred by SITECH in connection therewith; and (d) SITECH may terminate the PO.
11. All information SITECH provides to Vendor that is not available to the general public, all specifications and documents prepared by Vendor in connection the PO, and all other non-public information that Vendor obtains as a result of the PO constitute confidential information of SITECH. Without prior written consent by a General Manager of SITECH, Vendor shall not (a) disclose or use SITECH’s confidential information for any purpose other than performing the PO; (b) announce, publicize or discuss with third parties the subject matter of the PO; or (c) include SITECH’s name or trademarks in any marketing materials. All specifications, drawings, schematics, technical information, data, tools, test equipment, and other materials furnished by SITECH to Vendor shall remain SITECH’s property. All specifications, drawings, schematics, technical information, data, tools, test equipment, goods and other materials, and work product and intellectual property rights in all of the foregoing, generated in whole or in part by Vendor in relation to the PO (“Property Rights”), will be considered work for hire and will constitute SITECH’s sole and exclusive property, whether delivered by Vendor to SITECH or not, and shall be provided to SITECH immediately upon request. If any Property Rights are not considered works for hire owned by SITECH by operation of law, Vendor hereby assigns all right, title, and interest in such Property Rights, including, but not limited to, all copyrights in such Property Rights, to SITECH.
12. Unless exempt, this contractor and subcontractor shall abide by the requirements of 41 CFR §§ 60-1.4(a), 60-300.5(a) and 60-741.5(a). These regulations prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals based on their status as protected veterans or individuals with disabilities, and prohibit discrimination against all individuals based on their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin. Moreover, these regulations require that covered prime contractors and subcontractors take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, protected veteran status or disability.

14. The PO is to be construed and interpreted in accordance with Arizona law, without giving effect to its conflict of law provisions. Vendor irrevocably consents to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in Maricopa County, Arizona. The PO shall be construed without regard to any presumption or rule requiring construction against the party causing such instrument or any portion thereof to be drafted.

If SITECH fails to insist on performance of any term or condition, or fails to exercise any right or privilege hereunder, such failure shall not constitute a waiver of such term, condition, right or privilege.
