Boston Microscopes Terms and Conditions of Sale

These Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Terms”) govern the sale of Products and Services by Boston Microscopes, Inc. (“Boston Microscopes”) to the customer identified on the Quote and any and all of such customer’s affiliate(s) (individually and collectively referred to as “Customer”). “Product” means any equipment, hardware or consumables sold under these Terms. “Services” means any services sold under these Terms. “Quote” means the final sales quotation issued by Boston Microscopes to Customer accompanying these Terms. 

These Terms constitute the final and complete contract between Boston Microscopes and Customer with respect the Products and Services purchased by Customer and listed in the Quote. These Terms will be deemed accepted (a) upon Customer’s failure to object to the Terms prior to tendering any payment for or issuing a verbal or written purchase order for the Products or Services identified in the Quote (in either case, the “Purchase Order”); or (b) upon written consent from Customer. 

Boston Microscopes, in its sole discretion, may refuse to accept any Purchase Order or portion thereof for any reason including, without limitation, any of the following circumstances: (i) the Purchase Order lists a product no longer available or with specifications different from those contained in the Quote; (ii) the Purchase Order contains any term or condition that is inconsistent with the Quote or these Terms; or (iii) if, upon verification of Customer’s credit, Boston Microscopes believes in good faith that Customer is not creditworthy. These Terms supersede any other agreement between the Customer and Boston Microscopes with regard to the Products and Services identified in the Quote, including, without limitation, any conflicting terms or conditions on the Customer’s Purchase Order.

  • Unless otherwise specified on the Quote, the price set forth in the Quote will be valid for thirty (30) days following the date of the Quote.

  • All prices are firm for the effective period of the Quote.

  • Boston Microscopes reserves the right to make partial deliveries. Unless otherwise specified in the Quote, Boston Microscopes will have the discretion to either invoice an entire Purchase Order when the first Product on such order is shipped (even though the first delivery may be partial), or invoice the Customer separately for each partial delivery.

  • Boston Microscopes will use reasonable efforts to ship the Product(s) or provide the Services in accordance with the quoted delivery dates. However, all delivery dates are estimates. Boston Microscopes also reserves the right to deliver in advance of estimated delivery date. Boston Microscopes accepts no liability of any losses for general, special or consequential damages arising out of delays in delivery.

  • The shipping amount quoted is for the shipping address specified on the sales quote.  In the event that the Customer changes the shipping destination after completion of the sale, Boston Microscopes reserves the right to increase the shipping charges to cover additional costs and administrative activities incurred, which Boston Microscopes will bill for separately.  Customer is obligated to pay these additional expenses immediately.

  • All Purchase Orders are subject to acceptance by Boston Microscopes at its sole discretion.

  • Customer may cancel a Purchase Order by contacting Boston Microscopes’ customer support by email (sales@bostonmicroscopes.com) or by phone (617-299-0920) within 48 hours immediately following Boston Microscopes’ receipt of Purchase Order, provided that Boston Microscopes has not packaged or shipped the Product. Please note that if the Product has been packaged or shipped, Purchase Order cannot be canceled.

  • Purchase Order and related Product(s) title transfer (“Title Transfer”) are governed by the applicable trade term (as defined in Incoterms 2000) specified on the Quote or agreed to by Boston Microscopes. In the event the trade term on the Quote is left blank or not otherwise specifically agreed to by Boston Microscopes, the trade term shall be F.O.B. origin and title, liability and risk of loss shall transfer to Customer when the Product(s) leaves Boston Microscopes’ shipping point, notwithstanding any laws, regulations, treaties or conventions to the contrary.

  • Unless otherwise specified on the Quote, any tax, duty, custom or other fee imposed by any governmental authority on this transaction shall be paid by Customer in addition to the prices quoted or invoiced. In the event that Boston Microscopes prepays any such tax, fee, or charge, at the time of sale or thereafter, Customer shall reimburse Boston Microscopes in full within ten (10) days of receipt of the invoice.

  • Unless otherwise specified on the Quote, prices exclude packaging, shipping, installation, refurbishment, repair and/or maintenance activities, costs and fees.

  • Boston Microscopes may at its sole discretion elect to keep any non‐refundable deposits issued by Customer in the event a Purchase Order is cancelled. All cancellations of Purchaser Orders shall be made in writing.

  • Unless the Quote specifies a “90 Day Warranty” for a Product, Customer’s acceptance of a Product (“Product Acceptance”) shall occur concurrently with Title Transfer. In the event the Quote specifies a 90 Day Warranty for a Product, the Product Acceptance shall occur upon the earlier of (i) 7 days immediately following Customer’s receipt of the Product, or (ii) 14 days from the date Boston Microscopes ships the Product. Upon Product Acceptance the sale shall be final.

  • Payment terms are stated in the Quote. Boston Microscopes may discontinue performance if Customer fails to pay any amount due, or fails to perform under this or any other Boston Microscopes agreement if, after ten (10) days written notice, the failure has not been cured. An interest charge of 1% per month, or the maximum allowable by law, will be added to delinquent invoices. Payment of any late charge will not cure or excuse any default by Customer, and Boston Microscopes’ acceptance of such late charge will not be deemed a waiver by Boston Microscopes of any default by Customer. Customer will be responsible for reasonable fees incurred by Boston Microscopes for collecting any overdue payments, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.

  • Boston Microscopes reserves the right to require C.O.D. payment terms from Customer and refuse to sell any Products or Services to Customer until all prior overdue accounts are paid in full.

  • Boston Microscopes may use the Customer’s contact information, including email address, for marketing purposes.   Customer can opt out of Boston Microscopes’ marketing promotions at any time by sending an email to sales@bostonmicroscopes.com.

  • The applicable manufacturer of each Product retains all right, title and interest in and to all intellectual property, including but not limited to any patents, copyrights, trademarks, software, trade names or the like, associated with the Product(s) (“Technology”). No transfer of ownership or title in the Technology is made by the sale of such Product(s) to Customer or any third party. The sale of any Product will not be construed as granting to Customer any license or other right to (a) apparatus, software, or circuits in which the Product(s) or parts thereof may be used, (b) a process or machine in connection with which they may be used, or (c) the process for their manufacture. Customer is solely responsible for obtaining the requisite software license(s) from the equipment manufacturer(s) or qualified agent.

  • Customer shall not reverse engineer, reverse compile or reverse assemble the Product(s) or software contained therein, in whole or in part, without the consent of the applicable manufacturer(s).

3. PRODUCT WARRANTIES

  • UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN THE QUOTE, ALL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE SOLD “AS IS”.  THE AFOREMENTIONED NOTWITHSTANDING, ANY AND ALL PRODUCTS SOLD TO OR SHIPPED TO CUSTOMER LOCATED OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES ARE SOLD “AS IS” REGARDLESS OF TERMS SPECIFIED IN THE QUOTE.

  • In the event the Quote specifies a 90 day warranty for Product, Customer shall have the right to return the applicable Product(s) for a refund or credit, as elected by Customer, by notifying Boston Microscopes in writing prior to the date of Product Acceptance and returning the Product(s) no later than (7) days thereafter. A restocking fee equal to 15% of the Quote price will be applied for such returns, unless Boston Microscopes at its sole discretion determines that Product’s operating condition or features differ significantly from the Quote and related BostonMicroscopes.com item detail web page. Such restocking fee shall be deducted from the refund paid to the customer, or if the customer has not yet paid for the Product, the customer shall remit such restocking fee to Boston Microscopes immediately upon request. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Boston Microscopes, Customer shall be responsible for all packaging and shipping charges for Product(s) returned pursuant to this Section 3.b. This 7 Day Money Back Guarantee is null and void if (a) the Product has been modified by the Customer, (b) any repairs have been attempted or completed by either the Customer or another third party, (c) the Product has not been subject to proper maintenance, or (d) the Product has been misused or abused in any way.

  • In the event the Quote specifies a warranty period for the Product backed directly by the Product manufacturer (a “Manufacturer Warranty”), Customer shall work directly with such manufacturer to resolve all warranty issues in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Manufacturer Warranty. Boston Microscopes makes no representations or warranties regarding any Manufacturer Warranty and disclaims all liability which may arise from the performance or non‐performance of a Manufacturer Warranty.

  • For Products that are specifically sold with an extended warranty, the following terms apply in addition to the terms and conditions found elsewhere in the Terms.  The extended warranty covers the costs of parts and labor for any defects in the Product discovered during normal and routine use by the original Customer.  This warranty is non‐transferable and does not apply to any Product that is shipped outside of the continental United States or any equipment purchased by resellers.  The warranty period begins on the date the Product is received by the Customer and is only valid if the equipment has been paid in full or the customer is in compliance with Boston Microscopes’ previously approved payment terms.  Customer shall notify Boston Microscopes in writing prior to the conclusion of the warranty period of any issues with the Product.  Warranty coverage does not include any consumable items.   In the event warranty service is needed, Boston Microscopes shall at its sole discretion (1) send a technician to repair the Product, (2) have the Product shipped to a Boston Microscopes location and perform the repair work at its own facility, or (3) deliver a replacement piece of equipment of equal or greater functionality to the Customer.  Boston Microscopes shall have no liability for any lost data, lost productivity or down time, lost income, consequential or punitive damages, or any other liability related to the Product requiring repair.  Boston Microscopes shall retain any parts that are replaced during the repair process. This warranty is null and void if (a) the Product has been modified by the Customer, (b) any repairs have been attempted or completed by either the Customer or another third party, (c) the Product has not been subject to proper maintenance, or (d) the Product has been misused or abused in any way.  A requested service call during the warranty period that does not result in a finding of any issue with the Product will be billed to the Customer at Boston Microscopes’ normal rates for time and travel expenses. The failure of Boston Microscopes to enforce any provision of this warranty shall not be deemed a waiver or limitation of Boston Microscopes’ right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of the warranty.

  • In the event the Quote specifies a warranty period for the Product backed directly by Boston Microscopes other than as specifically noted above, Customer shall notify Boston Microscopes in writing prior to the conclusion of the warranty period and resolve any Product defect or non‐conformance issues directly with Boston Microscopes. Boston Microscopes will, at its sole discretion, repair the affected Product or replace it with a comparable product. If Boston Microscopes determines in its discretion that a Product must be returned to Boston Microscopes for repair or replacement, Customer agrees to return such Product no later than fifteen (15) days following such determination. Boston Microscopes shall pay the expenses for packaging and shipping to Customer any repaired or replaced Product. Unless Boston Microscopes agrees otherwise, Customer shall pay the expenses for packaging and shipping to Boston Microscopes any Product returned for service or replacement pursuant to this Section 3.e. All Product warranties given by Boston Microscopes will expire at the end of the warranty period and will not be revised or extended upon the repair or replacement of the Product to which the warranty pertains. 

  • The aforementioned notwithstanding, in the event Customer assumes responsibility for packaging or shipping the Product(s) and/or for picking‐up the Product(s), Boston Microscopes shall not be responsible for any damages to Product(s) that Boston Microscopes at its sole discretion deems were incurred during packaging or shipping to Product.
  • THE WARRANTIES IN THESE TERMS ARE EXCLUSIVE AND Boston Microscopes MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESS OR IMPLIED HEREUNDER. Boston Microscopes SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS (WITHOUT LIMITATION) IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON‐INFRINGEMENT WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCT. IN NO EVENT SHALL Boston Microscopes BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF Boston Microscopes HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
