TOSA TOOL PRODUCT TERMS & CONDITIONS

Quotations

All sales by Tosa Tool LLC (“Tosa Tool”) are made subject to the following terms and

conditions. Tosa Tool expressly rejects any different or additional terms or conditions contained

in any documents submitted by Buyer. Tosa Tool’s provision of credit, acceptance of any

purchase order and/or sale of any goods are expressly made conditional on Buyer’s assent to

these terms and conditions. All orders by Buyer are accepted only upon issuance of Tosa Tool’s

sales order acknowledgement. Stenographic, software and clerical errors are subject to

correction.

 

Delivery & Shipments

Delivery dates are approximate. Tosa Tool shall not be responsible for non-shipment of goods

or delays in delivery or performance due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including, but

not limited to, acts of God; acts of Buyer; strikes or other labor disturbances; Tosa Tool’s

inability to obtain, or material increases in the cost of, fuel, raw materials or parts; delays in

transportation; repairs to equipment; fires; or accidents. Acceptance of goods upon delivery

shall constitute a waiver by Buyer of any claim for damages on account of non-shipment or

delays in delivery or performance.

All deliveries are F.O.B. Tosa Tool’s shipping facility, via FedEx, UPS, USPS and/or freight prepaid. If

shipped freight prepaid, the charge for freight will be added to the invoice. Neither freight

charges nor tax are subject to any discount. Risk of loss or damage in transit shall be borne by

Buyer, and claims shall be made directly with the carrier. At the time of purchase Buyer may

arrange to pick up goods at Tosa Tool’s shipping facility. In this case Buyer agrees to schedule

and pickup goods within 10 days after the date Buyer is notified of the availability of goods. If

Buyer fails to pick up goods within 10 days after notification of availability Tosa Tool reserves

the right to cancel the order and refund the purchase price, less a restocking fee.

 

Receipt of Goods

Do not sign the delivery receipt until: 1) The freight has been landed (to the ground), and 2) The

crate(s) have been carefully inspected for damage.

Inspect the crate(s) thoroughly – walk around each piece. Note any damage to the crate(s) on

the delivery receipt before signing it. Give as much detail as possible. If the extent of the

damage is unknown, note damage as much as possible and also note: “subject to further

inspection”. Note any shortages: If the delivery receipt calls for 2 pieces and only one is

received, note “Short 1 piece” on the delivery receipt. Advise Tosa Tool if the shipment has

been damaged or if there is a shortage. Taking pictures of the crate or packaging is also helpful

if there is damage.

It is Buyers responsibility to refuse a shipment if there is extensive damage to shipping crates or

packaging or if they are unsafe to move. The carrier will then bring the shipment back to their

terminal and contact Tosa Tool for disposition. When refusing a shipment it is preferable to not

sign for delivery. If the carrier insists on a signature, write “shipment damaged and refused” on

the delivery receipt and then sign.

 

Taxes

All tax, Custom duties and any other fees imposed by federal, state, county or municipal

authority upon seller’s transfer and delivery of merchandise hereunder shall be paid by Buyer.

 

Default in Payment

All orders and shipments are subject to approval. Tosa Tool may at any time refuse to make

shipment or delivery if Buyer fails to fulfill the terms and conditions of payment. In the event

Buyer fails to make payment on any contract between Buyer or any of its affiliates and Tosa

Tool in accordance with the terms of such contract, Tosa Tool may, at its option and in addition

to all other remedies available to it: (a) defer shipments hereunder until such payment is made

and satisfactory credit arrangements are established; or (b) cancel the unshipped balance of

any order. At Tosa Tool’s option, interest will be charged after the due date up to the maximum

lawful contract interest rate.

 

Claims

In all claims for shortages, buyer must notify Tosa Tool within 15 days of receipt of shipment.

Charges for repair or inspection of parts by buyer, without prior authorization, cannot be

honored. Claims will not be honored on those parts further processed by buyer resulting in

change of dimensions or characteristics from parts ordered.

No claim for damages for goods that do not conform to specifications will be allowed unless

Tosa Tool is given immediate notice after delivery of goods to the first destination to which they

are shipped and allowed an opportunity to inspect them. Goods for which damages are claimed

shall not be returned, repaired, or discarded without Tosa Tool’s written consent. BUYER’S

EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST TOSA TOOL, AND TOSA TOOL’S SOLE OBLIGATION, FOR

ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT
