Purchaser understands and agrees that in certain situations (e.g., direct shipments from techgoods to Purchaser’s customers) Purchaser must provide techgoods with names, mailing addresses, telephone numbers and other information regarding its customers (collectively, “Customer Information”) and techgoods must record, use, disclose and store certain Customer Information regarding such sales to enable the processing, delivery and post-sales support of those orders. Purchaser understands and agrees that techgoods is required to provide Customer Information or portions thereof to many of its suppliers. Purchaser may place orders over the telephone, via facsimile, via-email and via techgoods-approved electronic ordering methods only through persons who identify themselves as Purchaser personnel and provide their Company name to identify the techgoods account prior to placing the order. Techgoods will have no obligation to confirm the validity of any order placed or the authority of the person placing an order in this manner. Purchaser bears all risk of unauthorized purchases by third parties using Purchaser’s account identity. Techgoods’ acceptance of any order from Purchaser is limited to these terms and conditions in their entirety without addition, modification, or exception. Any additional or different terms in Purchaser’s purchase order or submitted by Purchaser in any form are hereby deemed to be material alterations hereto and notice of objection to them is hereby given. All orders will be assessed a $49 Fee or 5% of the total order amount, whichever is higher, to cover Government, Shipping and Handling Fees.

Purchaser’s orders for direct shipment or otherwise, or Special Order Products may require prepayment and may be subject to additional fees. Techgoods will have no obligation to hold Product for future sale to Purchaser if Purchaser’s order is incomplete, on hold, or if Purchaser does not confirm the order within 24 hours of notification from techgoods that backordered Product is available for shipment. Additional fees may apply as required by government, shippers and/or manufacturers.
All Product pricing, description and availability information (“Information”) provided by techgoods, in any form, is the property of techgoods.

4. CREDIT AND PAYMENT TERMS
Purchaser shall furnish to techgoods all financial information reasonably requested by techgoods from time to time for the purpose of establishing or continuing Purchaser’s credit limit. Purchaser agrees that techgoods shall have the right to decline to extend credit to Purchaser and to require that the applicable purchase price be paid prior to shipment. Purchaser shall promptly notify techgoods of all changes to Purchaser’s name, address, or of the sale of substantially all of its assets. If Purchaser does not promptly notify techgoods of any such change, techgoods may, without notice, refuse to extend credit, sell Product, or provide services to Purchaser. Techgoods shall have the right from time to time, without notice, to change or revoke Purchaser’s credit limit on the basis of changes in techgoods’ credit policies or Purchaser’s financial condition and/or payment record. Techgoods will invoice Purchaser upon Product shipment and all invoices will be due and payable according to Purchaser’s current payment terms at the time of invoice. Techgoods reserves the right to apply payment to oldest outstanding invoice(s) if proper payment support is not received. Purchaser shall not deduct any amounts owing from any techgoods invoice without techgoods’ express written approval, which approval shall be contingent upon Purchaser providing all supporting documentation for such deduction as required by techgoods. Any credit issued by techgoods to Purchaser shall be valid for one (1) year from the date of issuance and the Purchaser waives any right to claim any amount owing pursuant to an expired credit. A service charge of the lesser of one and one-half percent (1 ½%) per month (18% per annum) or the maximum amount allowed by law will be charged on all past due invoice amounts commencing on the date payment is due. Credit cards (MasterCard and VISA) will only be accepted at the time of order. No cash payments will be accepted. Payment by money orders will be allowed only if the money order is made out in the exact amount of the invoice; payment of one invoice through multiple money orders will not be permitted. Techgoods retains (and Purchaser grants to techgoods by submitting a purchase order) a security interest in the Products to secure payment in full, and Purchaser agrees to execute any additional documents necessary to perfect such security interest. If Purchaser fails to make timely payment of any amount invoiced hereunder, techgoods shall have the right, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies available to techgoods at law or in equity, to immediately revoke any or all credit extended, to delay or cancel future deliveries, to accelerate the payment of all outstanding invoice amounts and/or to reduce or cancel any or all quantity discounts extended to Purchaser. Purchaser shall pay all costs of collection including reasonable attorneys’ fees. Any obligation of techgoods under these terms and conditions to deliver Products on credit terms shall terminate without notice if Purchaser files a voluntary petition under a bankruptcy statute, or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or if an involuntary petition under a bankruptcy statute is filed against Purchaser, or if a receiver or trustee is appointed to take possession of the assets of Purchaser.
Purchaser shall bear all applicable federal, provincial, municipal, and other government taxes (such as sales, use, etc.).

8. PRODUCT RETURNS
A. Requirements - Purchaser must obtain a valid Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) number from techgoods for all returns. RMAs will be issued, at techgoods’ sole discretion, in accordance with these terms and conditions. Purchaser must provide its company identification and all other information as required by techgoods for all returns. Unless otherwise informed by techgoods, RMAs are valid for fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of issuance unless otherwise specified. Purchaser must allow for in-transit time for Products to be returned to techgoods, as techgoods must physically receive Products within the fourteen (14) calendar days. RMAs will be issued for authorized returns under one of the following categories: (i) defective Products, (ii) stock balancing, (iii) billing or shipping discrepancies, or (iv) damaged Product. Purchaser is responsible for ensuring that (i) the RMA number is clearly visible on the address label of the Product packaging when it is returned to techgoods; and (ii) NO WRITING SHALL BE DIRECTLY ON A MANUFACTURER’S BOX. Techgoods will refuse delivery of any boxes without a valid, clearly visible RMA number as noted above. The term “Overgoods” as used herein shall mean unauthorized returns. Any Products received by techgoods (i) without a valid RMA number, (ii) after being refused by Purchaser or Purchaser’s customer, excluding those damaged in transit from techgoods to Purchaser or from techgoods to Purchaser’s customer, (iii) after three (3) or more delivery attempts to the Purchaser or Purchaser’s customer, (iv) later than fourteen (14) calendar days from the RMA date, (v) in a condition unsuitable for resale (excluding defective Products), or (vi) Products found not defective subsequent to techgoods testing will be considered Overgoods. Techgoods reserves the right to return Overgoods to Purchaser or Purchaser’s customer, and/or to charge Purchaser a $50.00 processing fee per shipment plus related freight charges. If Purchaser refuses the shipment of Overgoods from techgoods or sends back the Overgoods to techgoods a second time without techgoods’ prior authorization, Purchaser agrees to relinquish all right and title to and waives all claims against techgoods for credit related to such Products. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, techgoods reserves the right not to authorize the return of Special Order Products or Products that are no longer in production or are being produced or published by a manufacturer or publisher that (i) is insolvent, (ii) has declared bankruptcy, (iii) is no longer an active techgoods vendor, or (iv) will not accept returns from techgoods.
B. Defective Product Returns - Defective returns are only for Products purchased from techgoods that are inoperable or do not function in accordance with the specifications published by the manufacturer or publisher and are covered under the manufacturer’s or publisher’s warranty. All defective returns are subject to more restrictive manufacturer or publisher policies which will supersede the techgoods return policies stated here. Purchaser may request an RMA for the return of defective Products, excluding Special Order Products, within twenty (20) calendar days of invoice date. Purchaser’s defective returns will be limited to a maximum of ten percent (10%) of the value of Purchaser’s Product purchases during the ninety (90) calendar days prior to the RMA date, less any prior defective returns during that same period. Upon receipt of the defective Product for which the RMA was issued, techgoods may test the Products and may return to Purchaser, at Purchaser’s expense, any Products found not to be defective. Upon verification that the returned Product is defective, techgoods may, at techgoods’ sole discretion, either (i) ship Purchaser a replacement Product, or (ii) provide Purchaser a credit equal to the lesser of the Product’s invoice price or current replacement value, less any applicable charges or fees. Techgoods reserves the right to require Purchaser to return defective Products directly to the manufacturer or publisher for replacement according to its defective Products return policy. Techgoods shall not be obligated to repair, replace, or issue credit to Purchaser for Products rendered defective, in whole or in part, by causes external to the Products, including, but not limited to, catastrophe, power failure or transients, over voltage on interface, environment extremes, improper use, maintenance or application of the Products or use of unauthorized parts. Purchaser shall bear all risks of loss when returning defective Products.
C. Stock Balance Returns - Stock balance returns are only for Products purchased from techgoods that are unopened and unused and can be re-sold as new. All stock balance Products returned must be in the manufacturer's original packaging and in condition suitable for resale including, but not limited to, without price tags or stickers or additional shrink wrapping, clean, undamaged and complete (“Stock Balance Condition”). All stock balance returns are subject to more restrictive manufacturer or publisher policies, which will supersede the techgoods return policies stated here. Purchaser may request an RMA for the return of Products in Stock Balance Condition, except for Special Order Products, within thirty (30) calendar days of invoice date. Purchaser’s stock balance returns will be limited to a maximum of five percent (5%) of the value of Purchaser’s Product purchases during the ninety (90) calendar days prior to the RMA date, less any prior stock balance returns during that same period. Stock Balance returns that exceed the allowable limit will, at techgoods’ discretion, either be returned to Purchaser, at Purchaser’s expense or be charged a twenty percent (20%) restocking fee. Upon receipt of the Product for which the RMA was issued, techgoods will verify the condition of the Product. Any Products that are not in Stock Balance Condition will be considered Overgoods. Techgoods will return Overgoods to Purchaser and will charge Purchaser a $50 processing fee per shipment returned to Purchaser plus related freight charges. Additional fees may apply to returned Products; e.g., re-box, label removal, re-shrink, etc., that are not in Stock Balance Condition. Upon verification that the returned Product is in Stock Balance Condition, techgoods will issue a credit to Purchaser equal to the lesser of the Product’s invoice price or current replacement value less any applicable charges or fees. If techgoods elects to restore returned Product to Stock Balance Condition instead of returning it to Purchaser, the credit to Purchaser will be net of techgoods’ costs to return the Product to Stock Balance Condition. Purchaser shall pay all costs, including all freight charges, and bear all risks of loss when returning Products to techgoods.
D. Damaged Product Returns - Damaged Product returns are only for Products purchased from techgoods and shipped via techgoods’ carrier of choice and that are damaged in transit from techgoods to the Purchaser or from techgoods to the Purchaser’s customer. If damaged Product is not refused by Purchaser, Purchaser shall document damage in writing on the carrier waybill or bill of lading and notify techgoods and request an RMA within two (2) business days of receipt of such Product. Failure to notify techgoods and request an RMA within such time shall be deemed an acceptance of the Product as of the date of shipment.
9. BILLING AND SHIPPING DISCREPANCIES
Billing and shipping discrepancies are for Products purchased from techgoods that were invoiced or shipped incorrectly. These include lost shipments, short shipments, wrong sales, wrong shipments and pricing/invoice errors. Purchaser may request an RMA or credit memo, as applicable, for verified billing and shipping discrepancies within five (5) calendar days of invoice date. In addition, Purchaser must notify techgoods of any billing discrepancies related to Purchaser’s authorized returns within twenty (20) calendar days of RMA date. Such notice shall be reasonably detailed and shall specify the discrepancy. Failure to give such notice within the time specified herein shall be deemed a waiver of Purchaser’s rights to claim such discrepancy.
