Purchases made from appointed distributors or other independent resellers will be subject to terms and conditions of sale as may be separately established by each such distributor or reseller, which will in no event be binding upon ProSoft unless otherwise expressly agreed to. However, ProSoft extends its standard Manufacturer’s Warranty and Software License to Buyers purchasing ProSoft products and related services from their local authorized ProSoft Technology distributor or reseller. Such Manufacturer’s Warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, which are expressly disclaimed. Sales and services outside of the United States of America may be subject to separate or supplemental terms and conditions of sale. For further information, please consult your nearest ProSoft Technology sales office.
These terms and conditions of sale (along with any associated written specification, quotation and/or supplemental terms and conditions provided by ProSoft) will exclusively govern the sale or licensing by ProSoft of all goods and services (including without limitation, hardware, firmware and software products, training, programming, maintenance, engineering, site services, parts, repair and remanufacturing services – hereinafter, "Products") furnished to Buyer hereunder, whether such sale or licensing is affected by paper-based transactions or via facsimile or other forms of electronic data interchange (“EDI”) or electronic commerce, and represents the entire Contract between Buyer and ProSoft with respect thereto. Buyer's receipt or acceptance of delivery of any of the Products ordered or purchased hereunder will constitute its acceptance of these terms and conditions as amended hereto. No alteration or variation to these terms and conditions shall apply unless specifically agreed to in writing by both parties. However, ProSoft reserves the right to affect minor modifications and/or improvements to the Goods before delivery provided that the performance of the Goods is not adversely affected and that neither the Contract Price nor the delivery date is affected. ProSoft objects to and rejects other terms and conditions that may be proposed by Buyer or that appear on or are referenced in Buyer's purchase order or requisition that are in addition to or otherwise not consistent with the terms and conditions set forth or referenced herein. This Contract gives the Buyer specific legal rights. The Buyer may also have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. If any provision of the Contract is invalid under any statute or rule of law, such provision, to that extent only, shall be deemed to be omitted without affecting the validity of the remainder of the Contract.
Prices are firm for delivery within the period stated in ProSoft's quotation and unless otherwise stated in the Contract, are exclusive of Value Added Tax, any similar and other taxes, duties, levies or other like charges arising in connection with the performance of the Contract. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, payment shall be made in the currency of ProSoft’s quotation within thirty (30) days from date of invoice with ongoing approved credit as determined by ProSoft. ProSoft reserves the right to render invoices electronically and to receive payment by way of electronic funds transfer. Payment by credit card, when permitted, is subject to credit card validation and authorization both at time of Contract and immediately prior to shipment. ProSoft reserves the right to suspend any further performance hereunder or otherwise in the event payment is not made when due. Interest charges may be added to overdue invoices at the rate applicable by law. Without prejudice to ProSoft's other rights, ProSoft reserves the right to suspend performance of the Contract (including withholding shipment) in the event that Buyer fails or in ProSoft’s reasonable opinion it appears that Buyer is likely to fail to make payment when due under the Contract or any other Contract; and under the same conditions require reasonable security for payment.
Unless otherwise expressly stated in writing, the Goods will be shipped CIP ProSoft’s U.S. location, Incoterms® 2010, final destination named by the Buyer.

Freight, packing and handling will be charged at ProSoft’s standard rates. Risk of loss shall pass to Buyer upon delivery to the first carrier even though ProSoft has booked and paid for the main carriage and insurance. Title transfers upon delivery to the first carrier, except all title to all intellectual property rights associated with the Products remains with ProSoft or its suppliers and licensors. Acknowledged shipping dates are approximate only and based on prompt receipt of all necessary information from Buyer. If the carrier delivers all material shown on the freight bill, but Buyer subsequently discovers shorted material, any claim must be filed directly with Company within ten (10) days after delivery. Claims filed later than ten (10) days after delivery will not be honored. When such shortage is verified by Company, credit will be issued to Buyer’s account within ninety (90) days of such verification. If Buyer requires special production service for unusual shipments, an additional charge (expedite fee) shall be imposed by ProSoft as deemed necessary to cover any costs of such service. Where applicable, prepaid shipping will be billed as a separate invoice item. If delivery is delayed due to any act or omission of Buyer, ProSoft shall be entitled to place the Goods into a suitable storage at Buyer's expense. Upon placing the Goods into the storage, delivery shall be deemed to be complete and Buyer shall pay ProSoft accordingly. If a delivery is not expected to be made on-time, ProSoft will notify Buyer and will take all reasonable steps at ProSoft’s own cost to expedite delivery; provided, however, when not prohibited at the time the order is placed, Buyer reserves the right, without liability, in addition to its other rights and remedies, to cancel the order if necessary by written notice to ProSoft and arrange for completion and/or purchase of substitute items elsewhere and to charge ProSoft with additional costs incurred as a result of delivery deviation.

The Contract (other than Buyer's obligation to pay all sums due to ProSoft in accordance with the Contract) shall be suspended, without liability, in the event and to the extent that its performance is prevented or delayed due to any circumstance beyond the reasonable control of the party affected, including but not limited to: Act of God, war, armed conflict or terrorist attack, riot, fire, explosion, accident, flood, sabotage; governmental decisions or actions (including but not limited to prohibition of exports, re-exports or the failure to grant or the revocation of applicable export licenses), or labor trouble, strike, lockout or injunction. For purposes of this paragraph, a “cause beyond its reasonable control” will not include international currency fluctuations or revaluations. ProSoft shall have no obligation to supply hardware, software or technology or to provide services in the absence of government permits or fulfillment of statutory conditions of exemption from such permits within the framework of import and export control (in particular, according to the regulations applicable in the United States, the European Union and the jurisdiction in which ProSoft has its registered office or from which components of the Goods are supplied) and the underlying circumstances could not be foreseen by ProSoft and are outside of ProSoft’s sphere of influence. In the event of revocation of issued government permits or in the event of a change in the applicable statutory import and export control regulations such that ProSoft is prevented from fulfilling the Contract, ProSoft is discharged from the contractual obligation without any liability of ProSoft. If the delay is caused by the delay of a subcontractor of ProSoft and if the delay arises out of causes beyond the reasonable control of both ProSoft and the subcontractor, and without the fault or negligence of either of them, ProSoft will not be liable to the Buyer for damages unless the articles or services to be furnished by the subcontractor were obtainable from other sources in sufficient time to permit ProSoft to meet the required delivery schedule. If either party is delayed or prevented from performance of its obligations by reason of this Clause for more than 180 consecutive calendar days, either party may terminate the then unperformed portion of the Contract by notice in writing given to the other party, without liability provided that Buyer shall be obliged to pay the reasonable cost and expense of any work in progress and to pay for all Goods delivered and Services performed as accrued at the date of termination.
Compliance with Laws
Products and associated materials supplied or licensed hereunder may be subject to various export laws and regulations. Both ProSoft and Buyer shall strictly comply with, and adhere to, all applicable U.S. and non-U.S. laws and regulations pertaining to environment, health and safety, economic sanction laws, trade, import and export control. Specifically, both Parties covenant that it shall not - directly or indirectly - sell, provide, export, re-export, transfer, divert, loan, lease, consign, or otherwise release or dispose of any equipment, product, commodities, services, software, source code, or technology received under this Contract to or via any individual, entity, or destination, or for any use prohibited by the laws or regulations of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction without having obtained prior authorization from the competent governmental authorities as required by all such laws and regulations. In the event that any required export authorization is denied, ProSoft will be relieved of any further obligation relative to the sale and/or license and delivery of the Product(s) subject to such denial without liability of any kind relative to Buyer or any other party.
In addition, these regulations prohibit any person, whether U.S. on non-U.S., from exporting or selling, directly or indirectly to or for any proliferation related end use (nuclear weapons, missile technology or chemical/biological weapons applications). ProSoft will not comply with boycott related requests except to the extent permitted by U.S. or international laws and then only at ProSoft's discretion. By placing an order with ProSoft, Buyer represents, warrants and covenants that Buyer has not paid, offered to pay, agreed to pay, or authorized or caused to be paid, directly or indirectly, any money or anything of value to any foreign official (as defined in the FCPA) to induce such official to use their influence to obtain an improper business advantage in connection with the purchase and resale of the Products, nor will Buyer do so at any time in the future. The export obligations under this clause shall survive the expiration or termination of this Contract.
ProSoft provides in-country certifications for many of our devices. Buyer is responsible for identifying what standards are required for the installation of the device as is mandatory in the country of their installation. Certification documents are available for download on the product pages.
Buyer shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless ProSoft and its affiliates from and against any and all claims and demands, and related liabilities, damages and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), for or in connection with any property damage or any injury to or illness or death of any person (including loss of income, profits, sales or “down time”) arising from or related to the Products, including such claims and demands brought by any employee, agent or subcontractor of Buyer for Buyer’s failure to comply with ProSoft’s published instructions and specifications concerning the operation, use and maintenance of the Products, except any claim, demand, liability, damage or expense proven to be the result of the negligence of ProSoft and not contributed to by the negligence of Buyer, its agents, employees, officers or directors or other third parties.
The parties will attempt in good faith to promptly resolve any dispute arising hereunder by negotiations between representatives of the parties who have authority to settle the dispute. If unsuccessful, the parties further will attempt in good faith to settle the dispute by non-binding third-party mediation, with mediator fees and expenses apportioned equally to each side. Any dispute not so resolved by negotiation or mediation may then be submitted to a court of competent jurisdiction in accordance with the terms hereof. These procedures are the exclusive procedures for the resolution of all such disputes between the parties.
