Terms and Conditions
All sales of servers, hardware, equipment and other computer products ("Products") by Deep Discount Servers LLC ("DDS") shall be made only upon these Terms and Conditions of Sale ("Terms and Conditions") and NOT any purchase order or other document of Buyer. By PLACING AN ORDER FOR PRODUCT(S), BUYER ACCEPTS AND IS BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. DDS's failure to object to any terms which conflict with these Terms and Conditions shall not be deemed a waiver or objection thereto. NEITHER DDS NOR BUYER IS BOUND BY ANY TERMS AND CONDITIONS IMPRINTED OR IMBEDDED IN ORDERS, ORDER ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS OR OTHER COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN THE PARTIES UNLESS SPECIFICALLY AGREED UPON IN WRITING BY A DULY AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF DDS.
- 1. Prices - Quotations, unless previously withdrawn, are only open for acceptance by DDS within 3 days from quotation date and are subject to approval of Buyer's credit. Prices quoted do not include shipping, handling, and taxes. If Buyer claims any exemption, Buyer must provide a valid, signed certificate or letter of exemption for each respective jurisdiction. All prices are subject to adjustment due to errors, omissions, specifications, quantities, materials, cost of production, shipment arrangements or other terms and conditions which are not part of DDS's original price quotation. DDS may cancel orders at any time, in its sole discretion.
- 2. Payment - Payment terms are at DDS's sole discretion, and unless otherwise agreed to by DDS, payment must be received prior to DDS's acceptance of an order. Invoices are due on demand and shall be paid without offset or deduction within the time period noted on Buyer's invoice, measured from the date of the invoice. Interest at 10% per annum (or the maximum rate allowed by law if less) will be payable on any amount outstanding for longer than 10 days. Buyer shall also be responsible for all reasonable legal fees, costs and expenses incurred by DDS if Buyer's late payment results in collection efforts. DDS shall also be entitled in its absolute discretion to apply any payment received from Buyer to DDS towards any indebtedness of Buyer, whether under this or any other agreement.
- 3. Delivery and Time - Delivery dates quoted by DDS are best estimates only and time is expressly not of the essence. Late or partial delivery does not entitle Buyer to cancel its order. Buyer acknowledges that DDS will not be liable for any damage or injury arising from a delay in delivery. In the event of delivery by installments, Buyer is not entitled to treat the delivery of faulty Products in any one installment as a repudiation of the entire agreement. Buyer must notify DDS in writing of nondelivery of Products, or receipt of nonconforming or damaged Products within 5 days of the delivery date. Delivery to Buyer occurs when Products are delivered to Buyer, the carrier or Buyer's agent at DDS's facility, whichever occurs first.
- 4. Risk of Loss, Title to Products, and Security Interest - All Products are shipped "Ex Works" San Jose (per Incoterms 2000). In the absence of instructions as to shipping, DDS will select a carrier who is not its agent. Such instructions shall not change the "Ex Works" terms of shipping, and DDS will have no liability for such shipment. Title to Products does not pass until Buyer has paid for Products in full. Buyer agrees that DDS shall retain a purchase security interest in all Products which it has sold to Buyer, and to any proceeds from the disposition of the Products, until the purchase price and any other charges due to DDS have been paid in full. Buyer agrees to execute any financial statements or other documents which DDS may request in order to protect DDS's security interest. Buyer expressly authorizes DDS to execute such security documents on Buyer's behalf and hereby designates DDS its attorney-in-fact for such limited purposes. In addition to the rights and remedies granted by these Terms and Conditions, DDS shall have all rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code, which rights shall be cumulative.
- 5. Limited Warranty - Limitation of Liabiliy. Unless otherwise noted by Deepdiscountservers.com, the terms and conditions of the Limited Warranty available at Warranty and Returns is hereby incorporated and made part of these Terms and Conditions.
- 6. Except as specifically provided herein, DDS MAKES NO WARRANTY, STATUTORY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR INTENDED PURPOSE OR USE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR ORIGINALITY. IN NO EVENT SHALL DDS BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIMS ALLEGING NEGLIGENCE OR WORSE OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DOWNTIME COSTS OR LOSS OF USE, INCOME, DATA, PROFITS, OPPORTUNITY, OR GOODWILL) NOR SHALL DDS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO OTHER PRODUCTS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT DDS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. DDS'S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY HEREUNDER SHALL NOT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE.
- 7. Changes - DDS may modify, revise or cancel its Limited Warranty, Return Policies, or these Terms and Conditions from time to time, at its sole discretion, and such change will not affect Product ordered by Buyer prior to the date of such change.
- 8. Default - DDS shall be entitled to suspend any (further) performance of an order or to dissolve the order or agreement, without prejudice to its right to claim alternative or additional damages, if Buyer is granted a suspension of payments or is declared bankrupt; if Buyer defaults in complying with one or more of its obligations to DDS; or if DDS fears that Buyer is or will be unable to meet its obligations under the agreement and Buyer fails to offer adequate security for the performance of its obligations within the period indicated by DDS. If one of the events referred to in this article occurs, all claims DDS may have against Buyer on whatever basis will immediately become due.
- 9. Not for Export - It is the sole and exclusive responsibility of Buyer to understand, verify and comply with all export and re-export requirements relevant to any Products purchased or received from DDS. Buyer agrees and confirms that Buyer shall not export or re-export, directly or indirectly, any Products, including any items incorporating such Products, to any country (including but not limited to, CUBA, LYBIA, IRAN, NORTH KOREA, SUDAN, SYRIA), destination, or individual (including those on the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security "Entity List" and other lists of denied parties) for which the U.S. Government or any agency thereof requires an export license or other approval for export or re-export, without first obtaining such license or approval. In addition, Products shall not be sold, leased, transferred to or used by an End User engaged in activities of mass destruction, or related to the design, development or use of nuclear materials, nuclear facilities, nuclear weapons, or chemical or biological weapons.
- 10. Returns and Cancellations - Requests to cancel or reschedule orders must be agreed to in writing and may or may not be accepted in DDS's absolute discretion. Without waiving any of its rights, DDS is entitled to recover all its costs and profits arising out of Buyer's attempt to cancel.
- 11. Limitations of Liability - In no event shall DDS be liable to buyer or to any third party for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages (including without limitation lost profits, lost savings, or loss of business opportunity) arising out of or relating to (i) any product or service provided or to be provided by DDS, or the use or inability to use the same, (ii) the use of or inability to use the site, the service, or the content, (iii) any transaction conducted through or facilitated by the site; (iv) any claim attributable to errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies in the site, the service and/or the content, (v) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data, (vi) statements or conduct of any third party on the site or the service, or (vii) any other matter relating to the products, the site, the service, or the content; even if DDS has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Subject to the foregoing, in no event shall the liability of DDS for products exceed the purchase price for the products, regardless of the legal theory asserted for such liability, whether in contract, tort, warranty or otherwise.
- 12. Force Majeure - DDS shall not be liable for any delay in delivery or non-delivery of product or services due to causes beyond DDS’s reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, acts of Buyer, acts of civil or military authority, war, riots, insurrection, sabotage, epidemic, labor disputes, labor shortages, utility shortages, materials shortages, delays in transportation or inability due to causes beyond DDS's reasonable control. In the event of any such delay, the date of delivery shall automatically be extended for a period equal to the time lost by reason of the delay or DDS may, at its option, cancel any order or remaining part thereof, without liability by giving notice to Buyer.
- 13. Law - This warranty is governed by the laws of the state of California without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of law. In the event that any of the terms set forth herein is determined to be unenforceable, the other terms and conditions shall remain in full force and effect. Failure of DDS to enforce any of these Terms and Conditions shall not be deemed a waiver of any of DDS's rights and shall not affect the validity of the sale or these Terms and Conditions.
