Roth Terms and Conditions of Sale


1. Terms and Conditions Agreement
All sales are bound by these terms and such terms found at Any order or statement of intent to purchase any goods from Roth Global Plastics, Inc., or Roth Industries, Inc., (collectively referred to as "ROTH"), or any direction to proceed with engineering, procurement, manufacture or shipment of any goods, or acceptance of all or part of such goods, or payment of all or part of such goods shall constitute assent to these terms and conditions. Any different or additional terms and conditions proposed by Buyer in a purchase order or otherwise, are objected to by ROTH and will not be binding upon ROTH unless specifically agreed to in writing by an authorized representative of ROTH's management. These terms and conditions of sale represent the entire sales agreement of the parties as to purchases made by Buyer from ROTH, except where ROTH has specifically agreed to other or additional terms and conditions in writing by an authorized agent. Such terms are subject to change and modifications as set forth in the above website. In the event of a discrepancy between current and past terms the terms and conditions listed on the website shall control.
2. Payment and Taxes
Payment is due within 30 days from date of ROTH's invoice to Buyer. If in ROTH's judgment, Buyer's financial condition at any time does not justify the terms of payment specified, ROTH reserves the right to require full payment in cash before order entry, manufacture, shipment or delivery of product. In the event, Buyer defaults in payment, Buyer shall be liable for all collection costs incurred, including but not limited to, reasonable attorney and collection agency fees, and all related disbursements. In the event, Buyer does not pay when payment is due, past due amounts are subject to service charges of 1-1/2 percent per month (18% per annum) or the maximum percentage rate permitted by law. Any partial payment on overdue accounts shall be applied first to services charges, then to remaining principal balance. All applicable taxes will be charged unless the required exemption forms are provided prior to sale.
3. Quotations
For quotations, unless otherwise stated, quotations expire 30 days from date thereof, and may be modified or withdrawn by ROTH prior to any acceptance. All quotations and prices are subject to change without notice. Prices do not include any present or future sales, use, excise, value added or similar taxes; export or import fees and, where applicable, such taxes and fees shall be billed as a separate item and paid by Buyer. ROTH reserves the right to correct all errors and omissions. Quantities and unit prices are for the specific quotations or sale only; any increase of decrease in quantities is solely at the option of ROTH. ROTH assumes no responsibility for quoted or sold materials meeting any job specifications or requirements unless specifically so stated in its written quotation. ROTH is merely quoting its interpretation of Buyer's requirements and bill of material. All quotations are subject to corporate credit approval and are not an offer to sell on an open account basis.
4. Shipping
Deliveries by common carrier are either EXW shipping point or CPT destination (defined in accordance with INCOTERMS). On all deliveries by common carrier, title passes to Buyer at point and time of delivery to carrier; and, thereafter, all risk of loss or damage shall be on Buyer. Damage or shortage claims arising from common carrier shipments are to be made by Buyer against carrier. ROTH assumes no responsibility beyond delivery to carrier in good order and is not responsible for loss, damage, or delay occurring thereafter. All items shown as freight allowed pertains to particular items and quantities. Buyer shall provide extra labor or mechanical facilities required to unload the shipment without any cost to ROTH.

In the event of delay in performance due to any such cause, the date of delivery or shipment will be extended by a period of time reasonably necessary to overcome the effect of such delay.

ROTH'S LIMITED WARRANTY IS GIVEN IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

ROTH DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR PRODUCT DEFECT CLAIMS THAT ARE DUE TO BUYER'S FAULT, PRODUCT MISUSE, IMPROPER PRODUCT SELECTION, INSTALLATION OR MISAPPLICATION.

i. The warranty period begins at the date of installation of the Product as recorded on the warranty card and submitted to ROTH after installation. If the warranty card is not submitted, the warranty period begins at the date of manufacture of the Product. This limited warranty shall be void if the product is not installed within twelve (12) months after the date of sale by the buyer to the installer.
ii.

Many states and localities have codes and regulations governing sales, construction, installation, and/or use of products for certain purposes, which may vary from those in other areas. While ROTH attempts to assure that its products comply with such codes, it cannot guarantee compliance, and cannot be responsible for how the product is installed or used.

15. Assignment
Buyer shall not assign any order or any interest therein without the prior written consent of ROTH. Any actual or attempted assignment without Roth's prior written consent shall entitle ROTH to cancel such order upon notice to Buyer.
16. No Waiver of Rights
The failure of either party to assert a right hereunder or to insist upon compliance with any term or condition will not constitute a wavier of the right or excuse any subsequent nonperformance of any such term or condition.
17. Choice of Law and Venue
If necessary to institute legal proceedings to enforce any of the Terms and Conditions of Sale, all transactions shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York, U.S., excluding conflict of law rules, and the venue shall be any state or Federal Court located in Syracuse, New York, and the parties consent to such venue.

In the event of such termination, Buyer shall reimburse Roth for any and all costs incurred and work performed to the date of termination, plus reasonable profit. Any such termination will be without liability to ROTH. The rights and remedies of ROTH set forth herein are in addition to any and all other rights and remedies it has at law or in equity.
20. Indemnification
Except to the extent such loss, damage, or expense results from and to the extent of the acts and/or omissions of ROTH, its agents, servants, or employees, Buyer, its officers and directors and employees shall defend, protect, indemnify, and save harmless ROTH from any loss, damage, or expense (including reasonable attorney fees) arising from any claim of death or injury to third parties or tangible property damage to third parties arising out of the performance, installation, promises, by Buyer, its employees or its contractors to its employees of any third party.
21. Attorney's Fees
In the event that litigation is commenced in which it is alleged that any party has breached any of the terms hereof, the prevailing party, as determined by the court, shall be entitled to reimbursement from the other party of its reasonable costs and expenses incurred in such law suit, including, but not limited to, its reasonable attorneys' fees.
22. Customs and Export Controls
Buyer will obtain all export licenses or authorizations necessary for the import of the goods.

Upon Buyer’s written request, ROTH shall provide a NAFTA certificate of origin to Buyer.
23. No Implied Waiver
The failure of either party at any time to require performance by the other party of any provision of this Contract will not affect the right to require such performance at any later time, nor will the waiver by either party of a breach of any provision of this Contract constitute a waiver of any succeeding breach of the same or any other provision.

Either party may assign or delegate its rights or obligations under this Contract without the other party’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment or delegation shall be void and of no effect.
25. Relationship of Parties

26. Severability
If any provision of this Contract is invalid or unenforceable under any statute, regulation, ordinance, executive order or other rule of law, such provision will be deemed reformed or deleted, as the case may be, but only to the extent necessary to comply with such statute, regulation, ordinance, order or rule, and the remaining provisions of this Contract will remain in full force and effect.
27. Entire Agreement
This Contract, together with the attachments, exhibits, and supplements specifically referenced in this contract constitutes the entire agreement between ROTH and Buyer with respect to the matters contained in this Contract and supersedes all prior oral or written representations and agreements.
