Buyer shall assist and cooperate with Plex in taking the necessary action to perfect and protect Plex's security interest.

All rights and remedies of Plex herein are in addition to, and shall not exclude, any rights or remedies that Plex may have by law or in equity.

The parties irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state courts in Oakland County, Michigan or federal courts in the Eastern District of Michigan, USA.

WARRANTY DISCLAIMER: BUYER'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY, IF ANY, IS THAT PROVIDED TO BUYER BY THE EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURER. PLEX MAKES NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES. PLEX HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, WHETHER IMPLIED BY OPERATION OF LAW OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND FITNESS OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS PARAGRAPH, ALL EQUIPMENT AND/OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY PLEX, ITS EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, AND AGENTS, ARE PROVIDED "AS IS," "WHERE IS," AND "WITH ALL FAULTS."
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, AND IN NO EVENT, WILL PLEX BE LIABLE FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE OR ANY OTHER LOSS, DAMAGE, COST OF REPAIRS OR INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, COVER, OR LIQUIDATED DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER BASED UPON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, TORT OR NEGLIGENCE, OR ANY OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH OR RELATED IN ANY MANNER TO THE DESIGN, MANUFACTURE, MARKETING, PROMOTION, SALE, TRANSPORTATION, DELIVERY, INSTALLATION, USE, MAINTENANCE, AND/OR REPAIR OF ANY EQUIPMENT SOLD BY PLEX.

RECOMMENDATIONS BY PLEX:
Buyer acknowledges that Plex does not make and specifically negates, renounces and disclaims any representations, warranties and/or guaranties of any kind or character, expressed or implied, with respect to (i) the equipment sold, its use, design, application or operation, merchantability, physical condition or fitness for a particular purpose, (ii) the maintenance or other expenses to be incurred in connection with the equipment, (iii) the engineering, design, fabrication work, or any other work or service (whether gratuitous or for payment) supplied by Plex and/or its agents, contractors, suppliers, and employees, or (iv) the accuracy or reliability of any information, designs, or documents furnished to Buyer. Plex neither assumes nor authorizes any person or entity to assume for it or commit to any other obligation in connection with the sale of its equipment and/or rendering of any services. Any recommendations made by Plex concerning the use or usefulness, design, application, operation, maintenance, and/or repair of the equipment shall not be construed as representations or warranties, expressed or implied. Failure by Plex to make recommendations or give advice to Buyer shall not impose any liability upon Plex.
USE OF EQUIPMENT:
Buyer shall, at its own expense, apply for and obtain any permits and inspections required for the installation and/or use of the equipment. Plex makes no promise or representation that the equipment will conform to any federal, state or local laws, ordinances, regulations, codes, or standards, except as particularly specified and agreed upon in writing by an authorized representative of Plex. Plex's equipment is not for use in or with any nuclear facility unless specifically so stated by Plex in writing.
Plex shall not be responsible for any losses or damages sustained by the Buyer or any other person as a result of improper installation, misapplication, inoperability, use, misuse, and/or abuse of any equipment. Buyer shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Plex, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and contractors, against any and all loss, damage, claim, suit, liability, judgment or expense (including, without limitation, attorney's fees) arising out of or in connection with any injury, disease, or death of persons (including, without limitation, Buyer's employees, contractors, and/or agents) or damage to or loss of any property or the environment, or violation of any applicable law or regulation resulting from or in connection with the sale, transportation, installation, use, maintenance, and/or repair of the equipment by Buyer or of the information, design, service or other work supplied to Buyer, whether caused by the concurrent and/or contributory negligence of Buyer, Plex, or any of their agents, employees or suppliers. The obligations, indemnities and covenants contained in this paragraph shall survive the consummation or termination of this transaction.
INSPECTION AND ACCEPTANCE:
Claims for damage, shortage, or error in shipping must be reported within one (1) day following delivery to Buyer. Buyer shall have seven (7) days from the date Buyer receives any equipment to inspect such equipment for defects and non-conformance which are not due to damage, shortage, or error in shipping and notify Plex in writing of any defects, non-conformance, or rejection of such equipment. After such seven (7) day period, Buyer shall be deemed to have irrevocably accepted the equipment, if not previously accepted. After such acceptance, Buyer shall have no right to reject the equipment for any reason or revoke acceptance. Buyer hereby agrees that such seven (7) day period is a reasonable amount of time for such inspection and revocation. Buyer shall have no right to order any change or modification to any equipment previously ordered by Buyer or its representatives or cancel any order without Plex's written consent and payment to Plex of all charges, expenses, commissions, and reasonable profits owed to or incurred by Plex. Specially fabricated or ordered items may not be canceled or returned and no refund will be made. The sole and exclusive remedy for merchandise alleged to be defective in workmanship or material will be the repair or replacement of the merchandise subject to the manufacturer's inspection and applicable warranty.
Within thirty (30) days of delivery, Buyer may return any equipment which Plex stocks with no restocking charge if: (i) it is in new condition, suitable for resale in its undamaged original packaging and with all its original parts, and (ii) it has not been used, installed, modified, rebuilt, reconditioned, repaired, altered, or damaged, and (iii) it meets all local, state and federal laws governing the type of equipment that can be sold or put into transit in the state in which the equipment is being returned. Buyer's surplus job returns, and those not meeting (i), (ii) and (iii), above, will be evaluated on an individual basis after Buyer has contacted Plex's authorized representative for prior written permission. Special orders or non-stock items may be returned only if the manufacturer will accept the return and subject to any applicable restocking, handling, or other fee(s) charged by the manufacturer. Except for items Plex stocks which meet (i), (ii) and (iii), above, credit memoranda issued for authorized returns shall be subject to the following deductions: (a) cost of putting items in salable condition; (b) transportation charges, if not prepaid; and (c) handling and restocking charges.
SHIPPING AND DELIVERY:
Plex shall in its discretion select the mode of shipment and the carrier unless specific shipping instructions have been given by Buyer to Plex and accepted by Plex. Plex, in its discretion, may obtain transit insurance for the benefit of Buyer covering the shipment of the equipment. All costs of transportation, handling, and insurance for the shipment of the equipment shall be paid by Plex and promptly reimbursed by Buyer. Unless alternative arrangements have been agreed to by Buyer and Plex, all equipment will be shipped FOB Destination. Risk of loss shall transfer to the Buyer upon tender of goods to Buyer, Buyer's representative, or any common carrier. The cost of any special packing or special handling caused by Buyer's requirements or requests shall be added to the amount of the order. If Buyer causes or requests a shipment delay or if Plex ships or delivers the equipment erroneously as a result of inaccurate, incomplete or misleading information supplied by Buyer or its agent, contractor, or employee, storage and all other additional costs and risks shall be borne solely by Buyer. Claims for equipment damaged or lost in transit should be made by Buyer to the carrier, as Plex's responsibility ceases upon tender of goods to Buyer, Buyer's representative, or any common carrier. Plex will make a good faith effort to complete delivery of the equipment as indicated by Plex in writing, but Plex assumes no responsibility or liability and will accept no back charge for any loss or damage due to delay or inability to deliver, irrespective of whether such loss or damage was made known to Plex.
The amount of any sales, excise or other taxes, if any, applicable to the equipment shall be added to the purchase price and shall be paid by Buyer unless, in a timely manner, Buyer provides Plex with a valid exemption certificate acceptable to the applicable taxing authorities. Any taxes which Plex may be required to pay or collect under any existing or future law, upon or with respect to the sale, purchase, shipping, delivery, storage, processing, use, or consumption of any of the equipment, including taxes upon or measured by the receipts from the sale thereof, shall be the responsibility of Buyer, who shall promptly pay the amount thereof to Plex upon demand.
CONSTRUCTION AND SEVERABILITY:
These terms and conditions of sale shall not be construed against the party preparing them, but shall be construed as if all parties jointly prepared these terms and conditions of sale and any uncertainty or ambiguity shall not be interpreted against any one party. If any provision hereof is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under any present or future laws, such provision shall be fully severable and the terms and conditions herein shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never been made a part hereof. The remaining provisions herein shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions or by their severance herefrom.
Buyer shall not be entitled to set off any amounts due Buyer against any amount due Plex in connection with this transaction.
Plex's failure to insist upon the strict performance of any term or condition herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any of Plex's rights or remedies hereunder, nor of its right to insist upon the strict performance of the same or any other term herein in the future. No waiver of any term or condition hereunder shall be valid unless in writing and signed by Plex's CFO.
The relationship between the parties is that of independent contractors. There is no relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise or agency created hereby between the parties. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other party’s behalf without the other party’s prior written consent.
This document constitutes the entire, complete, and exclusive agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and contains all the agreements and conditions of sale; no course of dealing or usage of the trade shall be applicable unless expressly incorporated herein. The terms and conditions contained herein may not be added to, modified, superseded or otherwise altered except by a written modification signed by Plex and Buyer. All transactions shall be governed solely by the terms and conditions contained herein.
Purchase Order Terms & Conditions
The following terms and conditions, together with such terms as are set forth in the Purchase Order Form Agreement ("Order Form"), along with such plans, specifications or other documents as are incorporated by reference into this document, as amended in any subsequent authorized writing from Plex Systems, Inc. (“Plex”), shall constitute the entire contract (collectively, the "Purchase Order") between Plex and the Supplier listed in the Order Form (“Supplier”). If bid documents, performance specifications, technical product descriptions, and/or other similar descriptive materials submitted by Supplier in connection with the Purchase Order, or Supplier's proposal, have been incorporated by reference, these shall not be deemed to supersede any contrary requirements of Plex, but to the extent that such materials are not inconsistent with Plex's requirements and these terms and conditions, they shall constitute a part of the basis of this Purchase Order. If this Purchase Order is construed as an offer, this offer expressly limits acceptance to the specific terms of this Purchase Offer and written notice of objection to and rejection of any different or additional terms in any response to the offer is hereby given. If this Purchase Order is construed as an acceptance of an offer, such acceptance is limited solely to acceptance of the express terms contained in this Purchase Order. Any Supplier proposal for additional, conflicting, inconsistent, and/or different terms or any attempt by Supplier to vary in any degree any of the terms of this Purchase Offer in Supplier's acceptance is hereby objected to and rejected and must be agreed to in a written amendment to this Purchase Order executed by both parties. Any such Supplier proposal of any additional, conflicting, inconsistent, and/or different terms shall not operate as a counteroffer or rejection of this Purchase Order. If this Purchase Order is construed as a confirmation of an existing contract, the parties agree that this Purchase Order states the exclusive terms of any contract between the parties. This Purchase Order shall be deemed to have been accepted by Supplier upon receipt by Plex of any writing, including a writing transmitted by fax or other means of electronic transmission, indicating acceptance, or by any of the following (whichever occurs first): (i) shipment of the goods ordered under this Purchase Order or any portion thereof, (ii) Supplier’s commencement of any work, (iii) Supplier’s acceptance of payment, or (iv) Supplier’s performance of any services hereunder.
Discount terms are as set forth in the Order Form. If no terms are specified, the net amount shall be payable within thirty (30) days after the later of (i) delivery by Supplier and acceptance by Plex of goods and services or other performance conforming to the terms and conditions of this Purchase Order, and (ii) invoicing in accordance with the terms of the Order Form. Supplier hereby assigns to Plex all rights to refunds of sales and use taxes paid in connection with this Purchase Order and agrees to cooperate with and assist Plex in the processing of any refund claims.

If delivery or completion of the agreed upon date(s) cannot be met, Supplier shall immediately inform Plex in writing of any such delay. Such written notice shall not, however, constitute a change to the delivery or completion terms of this Purchase Order unless Plex modifies this Purchase Order in writing. If any item is not received or if any element of the work and/or services is not completed by the date specified, Plex, at its option and without prior notice to Supplier, may either approve a revised date or may cancel this Purchase Order and may obtain such goods, work, and/or services from another source and, in either event, Supplier shall be liable to Plex and shall promptly reimburse Plex for any loss, damage, and/or additional cost directly or indirectly incurred by Plex. Plex’s remedies provided herein shall be cumulative and are in addition to any other rights and remedies available at law or in equity. Supplier's sole remedy for a delay caused by Plex shall be an extension in the time for Supplier's performance equal to the duration of Plex's delay. TIMING OF DELIVERY OF ALL GOODS AND/OR PERFORMANCE OF THE WORK IS OF THE ESSENCE.
4. Improper Performance/Disputes/Governing Law:
In addition to other remedies provided by law, Plex reserves the right to reject any goods or services and/or revoke any previous acceptance and to cancel all or any part of this Purchase Order if Supplier fails to deliver all or any part of the goods or perform any of the work in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Purchase Order. Acceptance of any part of the Purchase Order shall not bind Plex to accept any future shipments of goods and/or provision of any work, nor deprive it of the right to return goods already accepted. The validity, interpretation and performance of these terms and conditions and this Purchase Order shall be governed by the laws of the state of Michigan, without regard to choice of law rules. The parties agree that the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any dispute, claim, or litigation arising from or relating to this Purchase Order shall be brought in the state courts of Oakland County, Michigan or federal district court in the Eastern District of Michigan and Supplier hereby irrevocably consents to such jurisdiction, unless Plex and Supplier otherwise agree in writing to utilize an alternative dispute resolution process (e.g., binding arbitration).
