PO Terms

1.  PURCHASE ORDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS. These terms and conditions (“Terms”) and a Joyent, Inc.

Seller’s agreement to comply with these Terms is a condition of doing business with Joyent, and Seller’s acceptance of any PO of Joyent, or commencement of performance or undertaking of any obligation to Joyent shall be deemed an acceptance of these Terms and the Agreement. Joyent hereby reserves the right to reschedule any delivery or cancel any PO issued at any time prior to commencement of any Services or shipment of any Goods. Joyent shall not be subject to any fees or other charges incurred by Seller as a consequence of such cancellation.

2. DELIVERY. Time and quantity is of the essence. Delivery of the goods shall be made pursuant to Joyent’s delivery schedule and to the place and through the carrier as specified in the applicable PO. If Seller does not comply with Joyent’s delivery schedule, Joyent, at its option, may, in addition to any other right or remedy available to it, terminate this order, in whole or in part without any further liability to Seller. Seller represents and warrants that the Goods will be adequately contained, packaged and labeled, and will be suitably packed to assure safe transit and the lowest transportation and insurance rates. Title and risk of loss shall pass to Joyent upon completion of Joyent’s inspection & Joyent’s acceptance of the Goods. Joyent reserves the right to return at Seller’s expense Goods received in advance of the delivery date or in excess of the quantity ordered.

3. PRICE & PAYMENT. The prices for the Deliverables hereunder shall be listed on the PO. Seller warrants that the prices for the Deliverables are not less favorable than those currently extended to any other customer of Seller for the same or like goods in equal or lesser quantities. The prices shall include any applicable federal, state and local taxes, and taxes must be shown separately on Seller’s invoice. Joyent will not be liable for any sales, use, excise, value added, ad valorem or other taxes unless otherwise specified in the Agreement.

If any price is omitted in this order, the Deliverables shall be billed at the price last quoted or paid by Joyent for such Deliverables, or the prevailing market price, whichever is lower.

Unless specified otherwise on the face of a PO, Joyent shall pay the invoiced amounts within thirty (30) days after receipt by Joyent of a correct and undisputed invoice.

All Goods shall be the best of their respective kind and shall be subject to Joyent’s inspection, at any reasonable time, before or during manufacture, and after delivery to destination. Use by Joyent of a portion of the Goods for purposes of testing their conformity with the specifications shall not constitute acceptance of the Goods. Goods other than those specified shall not be supplied without Joyent’s prior written approval. Without prejudice to any of its other rights and remedies, non-conforming Goods may be returned by Joyent, at Seller’s expense, including all transportation charges. Joyent shall not be required to accept replacements without its prior written consent.

5. CHANGES. Joyent reserves the right to make changes at any time to this order.
