products in jurisdictions where the sale of such products is restricted or forbidden, nor shall customer
incorporate or use any products in a manner which is prohibited by law.

the date on which the product was received by customer.

responsible for the actual costs and expenses incurred by Wesgarde in the collection of any sums owed
by customer, and Wesgarde shall not be obligated to make further deliveries to customer. Such costs
and expenses may include, but are not limited to, all costs and expenses incurred by Wesgarde in
connection with procuring and filling customer’s order, and all attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in

by the customer to the carrier as title to products passed to customer upon delivery to carrier. Any

Most products sold by Wesgarde are covered by the manufacturer’s warranties, and Wesgarde will
exercise commercially reasonable efforts to cause the extension to customer of the manufacturer’s
warranties. Regardless, Wesgarde’s warranty to customer is limited to repair, replacement or refund of
the purchase price for the product at the sole discretion of Wesgarde. Any products that Wesgarde
alters with its value-added operation are warranted to be free of defects in Wesgarde’s workmanship
for a period of one year from the date of shipment. Wesgarde shall not be liable for and customer shall

Except as expressly stated in these Terms and Conditions, Wesgarde makes no warranties concerning
products sold, and to the maximum extent permitted by law Wesgarde expressly disclaims all express
and implied warranties, including without limitation the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness
for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third party rights and warranties against latent defects,
with respect to the products and any accompanying written materials or instructions. Any description of
products sold or provided by Wesgarde, whether in writing or made orally by Wesgarde or its employees or agents, and any samples, specifications, bulletins, catalogs, drawings, diagrams, or similar
materials used in connection with Wesgarde’s sales efforts or customer’s orders, are for the sole
purpose of identifying the products, and shall not be construed as an express warranty. To the
maximum extent permitted by law, Wesgarde shall not be liable for, and customer hereby waives,
indirect, incidental, or consequential damages of any nature including, but not limited to, loss of profit,
loss of use, loss of data, promotional or manufacturing expenses, overhead expenses, removal and/or
reinstallation costs, reprocurement costs, personal injury, injury to reputation or loss of customers, even
if Wesgarde has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Customer's recovery from Wesgarde
for any claim shall not exceed Customer's purchase price for the product giving rise to such claim
irrespective of the nature of the claim, whether in contract, tort, warranty, or otherwise. If, for any
reason, the foregoing limitations are found by an arbitration panel or court of competent jurisdiction to
be invalid or inapplicable under any applicable state or provincial law, customer agrees that Wesgarde’s
total liability for all damages, losses, or causes of action of any kind or nature shall be limited to actual
damages without regard to any punitive or exemplary damages provided by any such applicable law.
Products identified as RoHS compliant, based on information provided by Wesgarde’s suppliers, do not
contain the substances prohibited by the European Community Directive on the restriction of the use of
certain hazardous substances, at levels in excess of the anticipated maximum concentration values.
Certification of product compliance with RoHS and its exemptions is best vested in the expertise of the
supply chain not having transformative responsibilities. As such, any information provided by Wesgarde
in reference to RoHS compliance is based on the product manufacturer’s timely and accurate
information and is not a declaration of compliance by Wesgarde.
Excluding all transactions otherwise conducted under NCNR product sale terms, in the event Wesgarde
products materially fail to perform, customer agrees to deliver written notice to Wesgarde with specific
details of the non-performance. If Wesgarde continues to fail to perform or correct the matter within
60 days after Wesgarde receiving written notice, Wesgarde agrees that customer may cancel the
purchase order(s) related to the non-performance, and request a credit for the cost of the nonperforming
products. Wesgarde’s liability is limited to the warranty set forth above, without any other
indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages of any nature, all of which are waived by customer
In the event the customer fails to perform its purchase order obligations, customer agrees that
Wesgarde may, at its option, pursue whatever remedies are available, including but not limited to
recovery of supplier fees related to cancellations of customer’s order/contract and other damages to
Wesgarde from customer’s failure to meet order/contract, including any merchandise price market
value differential at point of delivery and return, cancellation fees, reasonable attorney’s fees, credit
reporting fees, foreign exchange losses and related damages.
