  1. Purpose. The provisions contained in these General Terms and Conditions set forth the terms and conditions applicable to all sales of products (“Products”) and services (“Services”) by PivIT Global, Inc. (“PivIT”) to its customers (“Customer”). These Terms and Conditions, together with any quotes, purchase orders, and invoices are collectively referred to herein as the Contract Documents. In the event of any inconsistencies between these Terms and Conditions and the terms of any written quote provided by PivIT, the terms of the written quote shall be controlling. In the event of any inconsistencies between these Terms and Conditions and the terms of any purchase order provided by Customer, the terms of these Terms and Conditions shall be controlling.

  2. Payment. Terms of payment shall be net thirty (30) days. All invoices shall be paid in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise specified in the invoice. All invoices which are not paid within thirty (30) days of the date of invoicing, shall bear interest at the rate of eighteen (18) percent per annum, simple interest.

  3. Taxes. Customer shall be responsible for all taxes imposed by any governmental authority on the purchase of the Services including, but not limited to, sales tax, VAT and GST. PivIT will include all such taxes on its invoice and remit such taxes to the proper authority upon payment by Customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer shall not be responsible for any taxes based on PivIT’s income.

  4. Purchase Money Security Interest. PivIT retains a purchase money security interest in each Product Customer purchases until the price of the Product is paid in full. Customer appoints PivIT as Customer’s agent to sign and file a financing statement to perfect PivIT’s security interest.

  5. Delivery. PivIT shall deliver all Products to Customer at Customer’s expense and risk of loss. PivIT shall deliver the Products to the Customer FOB Santa Barbara, CA, or to such other point as is named in the Contract Documents by PivIT.

  6. Customer shall inspect the items upon arrival and shall, within seven (7) calendar days thereof, give written notice to PivIT specifying any shortages or non‐conforming Product. Failure to do so will constitute a waiver of non‐conforming delivery and acceptance of the Product(s) and the delivery as is.

  7. Customer shall install and use the Product(s) in full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and building codes, and with all applicable PivIT instructions and specifications.

  8. PivIT shall not be liable to Customer for the results of the use of Product(s) purchased, whether used singly or in combination with other materials or products, unless the Products are installed and used in full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and building codes and with all applicable PivIT instructions and specifications.

  9. Liability and Indemnification. PivIT shall have no liability for any third-party claim arising out of or in any way related to the negligence or willful act or omission of Customer or that of its employees, agents, or subcontractors. Customer will defend, hold harmless, and indemnify PivIT from any and all such claims, whether suit is filed or not, regardless of whether such claim also includes any allegation based upon PivIT’s intentional or negligent act or omission. Customer will pay PivIT’s reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in investigating, responding to, defending, and otherwise dealing with any such claim, upon demand by PivIT. If PivIT, in PivIT’s sole and unreviewable discretion, settles such claim, Customer shall pay PivIT, in addition to PivIT’s reasonable attorney’s fees, an amount equal to the reasonable value of PivIT’s settlement.

    PIVIT IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR FOR LOSS OF PRODUCTS, REVENUE OR DATA, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT, TORT, PRODUCT LIABILITY, BY STATUTE, OR OTHERWISE EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES AND EVEN IF THE DAMAGES OR LOSS ARE CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY PIVIT’S NEGLIGENCE. PIVIT WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT OR INDIRECT DAMAGES CAUSED BY LATE DELIVERY, PRODUCT DEFECT, OR ANY OTHER CAUSE. PIVIT HAS SET PRICES FOR ITS PRODUCTS BASED ON THE ALLOCATION OF RISKS SET OUT IN THIS AGREEMENT.
  10. PivIT liability with respect to any transaction with Customer for the purchase of Products and Services will not exceed that amount that Customer has paid PivIT.

  11. Warranty and Limitation of Remedies.

    A. PivIT warrants that Product(s) will be free from defects in material and workmanship and will conform to PivIT’s specifications. This warranty begins on delivery and continues for the life of the Product. If Customer notifies PivIT during the warranty period that a Product does not comply with this warranty, PivIT will, at PivIT’s sole option, repair or replace the Product at no charge.

    B. PivIT and its direct and indirect suppliers/vendors, shall have no other or further liability by reason of the manufacture or sale of any Product sold hereunder or by reason of their use, whether on the basis of breach of warranty, strict liability, negligence or otherwise. In no event shall PivIT or its direct or indirect suppliers/vendors be liable for general, special, consequential, or incidental damages relating to bodily injury, property damage, or economic loss (including without limitation damages for loss of use or loss of profits).

    C. CUSTOMER ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY TO VERIFY THAT THE PRODUCTS CUSTOMER ACQUIRES WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS. EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH HEREIN, PIVIT DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS AND IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE, AND THOSE ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. PIVIT DOES NOT WARRANT THAT PRODUCTS WILL OPERATE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT ALL DEFICIENCIES, ERRORS, DEFECTS OR NONCONFROMITIES WILL BE CORRECTED. PIVIT HAS NO WARRANTY OBLIGATION FOR THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS.

    D. Customer is solely responsible for (i) determining that the Product is suitable for the contemplated purpose and (ii) obtaining any required engineering services or architectural services relating to the project at Customer’s own expense.

    E.

    G. Customer’s rights and remedies set forth herein or in any subsequent writing are limited as set forth herein, notwithstanding anything to the contrary.

    H. Neither Customer nor PivIT may bring a claim or action arising out of or related to the purchase of any Product, including any claim of fraud or misrepresentation, more than two (2) years after the cause of action accrues.

  12. Force Majeure. PivIT shall not be liable for delay or non‐performance of the contract or any part thereof, resulting directly or indirectly from:

    1. Earthquakes;
    2. Epidemics;
    3. Act of any governmental authority, domestic or foreign, including but not limited to war, declared or undeclared, priorities, quarantines, embargoes, licensing controls or production or distribution restrictions;

    9. Any cause beyond its reasonable control whether similar or dissimilar to those above mentioned.

    Dates of delivery shall be extended for a period equal to the time lost by reason of any cause set forth above even though such cause may occur after PivIT’s performance has been delayed for other causes.

  13. BECAUSE OF INTERNATIONAL PATENT AND TRADEMARK LAWS, CUSTOMER MAY NOT EXPORT PRODUCTS WITHOUT PIVIT’S PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT AND THE APPROPRIATE APPROVALS FROM THE U.S. AND FOREIGN GOVERNMENT(S).

  14. Notices.

Nothing in this Agreement shall in any way be construed so as to create an agent, employee or representative relationship between PivIT and Customer. PivIT acknowledges and agrees that it is obligated to report as income all compensation received pursuant to this Agreement and pay all taxes due thereon. No part of PivIT’s compensation will be subject to withholding by Customer for the payment of any social security, federal, state or any other employee payroll taxes.

  17. No Waiver. The failure of either Customer or PivIT to insist upon the performance of any of the terms and conditions of the Contract Documents, or the waiver of any breach of any of the terms and conditions of the Contract Documents, shall not be construed as subsequently waiving any such terms and conditions, but the same shall continue and remain in full force and effect as if no such forbearance or waiver had occurred.

  18. Governing Law. The parties expressly agree that any dispute regarding the Contract Documents shall be governed by, interpreted under and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California. In the event of any dispute, the parties shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California, regardless of their place of residence, and in any action arising in connection with this Agreement, venue shall be in the County of Santa Barbara, State of California.

  19. Entire Agreement. The Contract Documents shall constitute the entire agreement between the parties and any prior understanding or representation of any kind preceding the date of the Contract Documents shall not be binding upon either party except to the extent incorporated in the Contract Documents.

  20. Modification. Any modification of Contract Documents or additional obligation assumed by either party in connection with the Contract Documents shall be binding only if placed in writing and signed by each party or an authorized representative of each party.

  21. Counterparts. The Contract Documents may be signed in counterparts, and faxed or scanned and e-mailed copies of those counterparts will have the same binding legal effect as if the parties had signed one original document.
