  1. AGREEMENT

 

These terms and conditions, together with the purchase order and any other documents specifically adopted by reference in any such documents (the “Agreement”), constitute the entire agreement between the parties and supersede any previous oral or written representations, including but not limited to provisions in Heather's Choice quotations, proposals, acknowledgments or other documents. No course of dealing or usage of trade shall be applicable unless expressly incorporated in this Agreement. The terms of this Agreement may not be varied or modified in any manner, unless in a subsequent writing signed by an authorized representative of Heather's Choice. In the event the terms and conditions of any purchase order or any other agreement conflict with this Agreement, this Agreement shall control. 

 

  1. PURCHASE; PRICES; TERMS OF PAYMENT; SHIPPING 

 

2.1 Purchase; Prices. Dealer agrees to purchase from Heather's Choice the Heather's Choice Products described, and for the price set forth, on any purchase order submitted by Dealer to Heather's Choice. No substitution of Heather's Choice Products may be made without Dealer’s consent and approval. Orders are subject to minimum quantity requirements of $150 listed on Heather's Choice current purchase order form.

 

2.2 Terms of Payment. The price for Heather's Choice Products purchased by Dealer shall be due and payable prior to the date Products shipped unless Heather's Choice and Dealer have agreed to alternative credit terms (Net 30). Any payments not received by Heather's Choice by the due date will be considered past due. In the event Dealer fails to make timely payment, Dealer's account will be placed on hold and no further purchases will be authorized until payment is made. Dealer will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred by Heather's Choice in collecting such amounts. Heather's Choice reserves the right to suspend performance of its obligations hereunder (or under any other agreement with Dealer) in the event Dealer fails to make timely payment hereunder or under any other agreement with Heather's Choice. Heather's Choice retains a security interest in the purchased Heather's Choice Products until the purchase price has been paid in full. 

 

2.3 Taxes. Heather's Choice prices shall be exclusive of all federal, state or local sales, use or excise taxes levied upon, or measured by, the sale, the sales price, or use of goods required in the performance of this Agreement. Heather's Choice shall list separately on its invoice any such tax lawfully applicable to any such goods, and payable by Dealer, with respect to which Dealer does not furnish to Heather's Choice lawful evidence of exemption. 

 

2.4 Terms of Shipment. All shipments are made F.O.B. origin (Heather's Choice facility), and all risk of loss or damages to the Heathers Choice Products shall pass to Dealer when Heather's Choice delivers the Heather's Choice Products to an authorized carrier for shipment to Dealer. Partial and/or installment shipments are authorized and shall be paid for when due. Shipment schedules are approximate and Heather's Choice will use commercially reasonable efforts to complete shipment as indicated. Shipments are made in a commercially reasonable manner as determined by Heather's Choice; provided, however, that if Dealer has a preferred carrier and if carrier account number, carrier name and contact numbers is noted on any purchase order, Heather's  Choice will use commercially reasonable efforts to use such carrier.
