GENERAL: These terms and conditions constitute an integral part of the Agreement between the parties to sell/purchase the Equipment and shall govern the rights and responsibilities of the parties. To the extent that any rights or responsibilities are addressed in the signed portion of this Agreement, those terms will supersede these online terms and conditions.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT: This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties, and supersedes any and all statements, descriptions of Equipment, course of dealing, or usage of trade previously existing between the parties with respect to such subject matter. Any acceptance of this Agreement is expressly limited to the terms of this Agreement. After the contract is formed, it may only be modified by written Change Order, in a form prescribed by DirectMed Parts & Service, LLC, which has been signed by the parties’ authorized representatives. Neither Seller nor Buyer hereto has entered into this agreement in reliance upon any representation, warranty, condition, or undertaking of any other party which is not set out in this Agreement.
AS IS, WHERE IS: All used Equipment is sold in “As Is, Where Is” Condition. SELLER makes no warranty whatsoever regarding the Equipment. SELLER DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF FREEDOM FROM PATENT INFRINGEMENT, OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, OR OTHER SIMILAR OR DIFFERENT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES. De-installation, shipping, re-installation, and any other expenses associated with the purchase and removal of this Equipment is not included in this purchase agreement.
REMOVAL: BUYER is financially responsible for all costs incurred in the removal of the Equipment, including but not limited to providing labor, rigging, packing, shipping, and all bonding and insurance. BUYER is responsible for any damage to Equipment during de-installation, transport and reinstallation and will insure against any such loss. It is BUYER’s responsibility to ensure that the equipment is removed in a professional and responsible manner. Any and all damages to the facility on the part of the BUYER during removal are the financial responsibility of the BUYER.
INSURANCE: BUYER shall provide a copy of its insurance certificate in the amount of no less than $1,000,000.00 liability coverage and upon request, agrees to include SELLER and/or facility housing the equipment on its certificate.

BUYER may inspect the Equipment before the inspection deadline date contained in the Quotation. Travel and inspection expenses are the responsibility of the BUYER. The inspection of the Equipment by the BUYER is strictly voluntary, and BUYER may elect not to inspect the Equipment. In the event BUYER elects not to inspect the Equipment, copies of available information such as service records and photos will be provided to the BUYER upon written request. If BUYER elects to inspect the Equipment, then BUYER must inform Seller of BUYER’s final decision to purchase within 48 hours of the inspection (“inspection-reply deadline”). Failure to notify the Seller of a decision within 48 hours of the inspection-reply deadline will qualify as an acceptance of the Equipment under the terms and conditions of this agreement, and the deposits will become non-refundable down payments.
CANCELLATION AFTER INSPECTION: If after the inspection, and prior to the inspection-reply deadline, BUYER elects to reject the Equipment and cancel the purchase, then all deposits from the BUYER will be refunded within ten days. After the inspection-reply deadline, neither party may cancel the purchase or sale without the written agreement of both parties.
TITLE: Upon receipt of payment in full, title shall pass to BUYER. SELLER certifies that the Equipment is free and clear of any encumbrances. Title will remain with SELLER or the agent, facility/owner, or vendor until full payment has been made.
EQUIPMENT USE PROVISION: BUYER represents and warrants that the Equipment being sold under this agreement will be used solely and exclusively for medical purposes. Under no circumstances will Equipment be used for non-medical purposes, including, but not limited to, industrial, military, government, or scientific research. Furthermore, BUYER agrees that if the Equipment is re-sold, that BUYER/Customer will perform due diligence and take reasonable measures to ensure that the Equipment continues its use in the medical field, and that at its end-of-life, it be disposed in accordance with local, state, and federal law.
TAXES: All sales and use taxes are BUYER’s responsibility. Unless the sale is executed in California, the invoices from SELLER do not include local, state and federal taxes, and such taxes are the BUYER’s responsibility to file. Consequently, in addition to the prices specified herein, the amount of any present or future sales, use, or similar tax application to the installation of Equipment herein or to the use of such Equipment by the BUYER shall be paid by the BUYER or, in lieu thereof, the BUYER shall provide SELLER with a tax exemption certificate acceptable to the taxing authorities. The BUYER shall defend, indemnify and save the SELLER harmless from and against any sales, use or excise taxes of any kind or nature asserted by any jurisdiction for the Equipment and services that are the subject of this Agreement.
PRIOR SALE: Equipment shall be subject to prior sale and this Agreement shall in no way be binding upon SELLER until the required deposit and signed Purchase Agreement are received and accepted. Acceptance is defined as signatures and delivery by both parties. In the event that SELLER has sold Equipment to another party prior to receiving BUYER’s deposit and signed agreement, or is unable to deliver Equipment to BUYER for any reason, SELLER’s maximum liability will be the deposit(s) BUYER has placed for the purchase.
NO LIENS: While BUYER is engaged in the de-installation and removal of the Equipment, it shall promptly pay all of its contractors, suppliers and workers for any work materials or services which may be supplied or performed at any time in respect thereof, and BUYER shall do all things necessary to ensure that no lien attaches to any property of the SELLER, or any subsidiary or affiliate of the SELLER or of the facility housing Equipment, and if any lien arises, or is filed or registered, BUYER shall discharge it or cause it to be discharged forthwith, at BUYER’s sole expense.
PRICE: The price contained in the Equipment Quotation is valid for the amount of time indicated in this agreement.
PAYMENT: The BUYER shall pay the price at the times and in the amounts set forth in the Equipment Quotation in full. If part of an order is shipped, the BUYER shall pay the full price for the items shipped. Overdue invoices will bear interest at the rate of 18% per year. The BUYER will reimburse the SELLER for all costs of collection, including but not limited to attorney’s fees. The BUYER will also pay and hold the SELLER harmless from all sales, use, excise and other similar taxes. Following the initial deposit, in the event that BUYER does not meet payment deadline, all claim and interest in Equipment reverts back to SELLER and BUYER may be required to forfeit all or a portion deposit funds paid. If the BUYER does not pay an invoice for the Equipment or for any other item sold or service rendered by SELLER, or if at any time the BUYER indicates that it is unable or unwilling to pay an invoice, SELLER may suspend performance and refuse to ship the Equipment to the BUYER. The time for payment is of the essence of this contract.
NON-CIRCUMVENTION: BUYER’s communications with the facility/owner are to be handled exclusively through SELLER unless otherwise directed by SELLER in writing. BUYER will limit any discussions during inspection or in the course of due diligence to technical and logistical issues, and further expressly agrees to not discuss financial issues with the facility/owner. It is also agreed that any and all details specific to the Equipment, including but not limited to location, ownership, price, condition, etc. are confidential to SELLER, and that BUYER will not violate this confidentiality in any manner whatsoever. In the event BUYER declines the Equipment for any reason, BUYER agrees not to circumvent SELLER in the purchase of Equipment either directly or through any other agent, broker, affiliate, organization or entity. Should BUYER reject Equipment, BUYER and/or BUYER’s agent(s) agree NOT to communicate with the facility/owner for any reason for a period 18 months from the inspection date. This clause will survive this agreement if it is canceled or voided. Should BUYER violate this clause and purchase Equipment independently of SELLER, then SELLER shall be entitled to 50% of the sales price of the Equipment.

The policy shall extend coverage to BUYER’s agents or subcontractors and name SELLER as an additional insured. Prior to de-installation, BUYER shall provide SELLER with a certificate of insurance as evidence of same. If BUYER fails to provide proof of such insurance, SELLER may request BUYER pay SELLER a premium, to be determined in SELLER’s sole discretion, for SELLER’s increased liability exposure. BUYER will indemnify, defend, subrogate its insurance and hold SELLER harmless from and against any and all liabilities, judgments, settlements, losses, damages, penalties, obligations, insurance claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by SELLER, arising out of any loss, deinstall/removal/pick-up, damage and injury that occurs during a de-installation performed by BUYER or its agent.

The BUYER shall hold SELLER harmless for any additional costs and expenses arising from changes or delays to the original removal date caused by the BUYER. In the event the Equipment becomes unavailable to SELLER, then SELLER will provide a full refund of all deposits paid. SELLER shall have no liability in the event that this should occur. Time is of the of essence in performance of this Agreement.
DELIVERY: BUYER and SELLER may agree on a “Delivery Target” date. Otherwise, SELLER will simply notify BUYER when a system is available (either for SELLER to deliver or BUYER to pick up – depending on the shipping terms). Delivery Target and availability are dependent on numerous factors, some of which are outside of SELLER’s control. SELLER will use its commercially reasonable efforts to meet quoted delivery dates but will not be responsible for any delays in performance, damages, or losses due to (but not limited to): fires, floods, earthquakes or other acts of God, accidents, riots, wars, acts of terrorism, operation of law, government regulations or requirements, strikes, labor difficulties, shortages of fuel, power, materials or supplies, unavailability of transportation, system availability delays, or other acts or circumstances that are not within reasonable control of SELLER. BUYER agrees that SELLER may extend the time to deliver for a reasonable amount in the above circumstances. The shipping terms from Inco Terms 2010 apply to this transaction. Once BUYER takes delivery of the Equipment, BUYER agrees to indemnify and hold SELLER harmless for any change in the Equipment’s condition. Unless SELLER has agreed otherwise in writing, SELLER shall have no responsibility whatsoever for the performance of, or the cost of, the installation of the Equipment.

Any warranty terms shall go into effect on the date the installation is completed. However, if installation is delayed for any reason other than SELLER’s delay and the Equipment is located at the BUYER’s site, any warranty or service coverage shall go into effect on the day of delivery. Unless otherwise agreed, BUYER is responsible for Network connections to the equipment and BUYER’s performance of this requirement will be determined in SELLER’s sole discretion. Any requirement of SELLER to provide network connectivity in this Agreement is subject to BUYER providing a compatible network and a qualified person with the ability to configure the facility network (including, but not limited to routers, switches, and firewalls) to work in conjunction with the installing engineer.
