- PURCHASE ORDERS – Purchase orders must specify the model number, options and quantities of each product ordered, and the requested shipping dates, shipping destinations, freight carrier and invoice point. Oral purchase orders will be accepted only subject to written confirmation by Printronix.
Customer’s submission of a purchase order shall be deemed acceptance of these terms and conditions to the exclusion of any other terms or conditions appearing in such purchase order. Printronix’ acknowledgment of Customer’s purchase order is expressly made conditional upon Customer’s assent to these terms and conditions, which assent shall be presumed conclusively from Customer’s failure to promptly object in writing at least 1 day before shipment takes place or from Customer’s acceptance of any or all of the products ordered.
- SCHEDULING OF SHIPMENTS– Customer may request in its order that products be shipped according to a specific shipping schedule, but Customer may not request that products be shipped later than twelve (12) months after the date of order. Printronix will schedule shipments based on Customer’s request and Printronix’ shipping capability at the time Customer’s order is accepted. Upon such acceptance, Printronix will issue an acknowledgment, which will indicate the estimated shipping dates.
- RESCHEDULING, CANCELLATION AND RESTOCKING – Customer may request that orders be rescheduled or cancelled only by written request submitted to Printronix Order Administration. All such requests shall be subject to acceptance by Printronix. Printronix may reject a request to reschedule a shipment if the new schedule does not conform to the requirements of the preceding Section 4 regarding scheduling of shipments. Any request to reschedule or cancel any shipment, which request is received after the shipment has left the Printronix’ shipping dock, may be rejected as untimely or, at the option of Printronix, may be accepted subject to payment of a rescheduling or cancellation charge in the amount of fifteen percent (15%) of the purchase price of any product re-scheduled or cancelled. Terms and charges applicable to products subject to special quotation if different from those stated herein, will be as specified in the quotation.
- SHIPPING AND DELIVERY– Printronix will use its best efforts to ship on or before the estimated shipping dates indicated in Printronix acknowledgment, except that Printronix will not ship before Customer’s requested shipping dates if Customer’s order so instructs. Printronix shall not, in any event, be liable for any delay or failure to deliver resulting from circumstances which are beyond Printronix’ reasonable control or which would cause Printronix to incur unreasonable expense in order to avoid such delay or to effect such delivery. Delivery shall be EXW Printronix’ shipping dock or otherwise agreed upon terms. In the absence of specific written instructions from Customer, Printronix will select the carrier, but Printronix shall not thereby assume any liability in connection with the shipment. If products are shipped freight prepaid, Printronix will bill Customer a freight charge for each shipment and, if such shipments are insured, Printronix will bill Customer and will be shown on the invoice as freight or as a separate items. Discrepancies must be reported within 15 days of receipt of material. Claims for damage in shipment, which was made under EXW terms, must be filed with carrier. No returns will be accepted without prior written authorization.

- TITLE, RISK OF LOSS AND SECURITY INTEREST– Under shipment terms EXW, title and risk of loss for all products shall pass to Customer upon delivery of the products by Printronix to the carrier. Printronix reserves a security interest in each product shipped until the entire amount due therefore has been paid.
- TAXES– Any and all state and local sales, use, excise, value added, privilege, and similar taxes imposed on Printronix or which Printronix has a duty to collect in connection with the sale, delivery, or use of any product will appear as separate items on the invoice and will be paid by Customer. If sales to Customer are exempt from such taxes, Customer shall furnish to Printronix a certificate of exemption or any other required document from the applicable taxing authority.
- INVOICES AND PAYMENT– Printronix shall submit an invoice to Customer for each shipment at the time of shipment.

Payment terms are cash upon delivery or, at the option of Printronix, net thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice. Any other payment terms are subject to acceptance in writing by Printronix. All payment shall be made in the original billing currency, except where contractual agreements specify otherwise.
If payment is made beyond the invoice payment due date, Printronix may charge interest on the overdue invoice amount including freight and taxes at its option. Regardless of time of notice, interest will be due from the due date of each invoice. The rate of interest will be 2% per month or the highest amount allowable by law, whichever is less.
