Terms & Conditions

These Purchase Order–Master Terms and Conditions (“Ts&Cs”) apply to each purchase order (“PO”) of Geremarie Corporation (“Buyer”) to a supplier (“Seller”). SELLER, BY FULFILLING BUYER’S PO, ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT HAS READ AND UNDERSTANDS THESE Ts&Cs AND AGREES THAT BUYER’S PO WILL BE GOVERNED BY THESE Ts&Cs.


Any PO between Buyer and Seller is placed subject to these Ts&Cs (and subject to any additional warranty agreement between the parties, if applicable). Buyer may specify additional terms regarding a particular PO in such PO. Any different terms proposed by Seller will not be binding unless Buyer agrees to them in writing. Seller will be bound by the terms of Buyer’s PO when it accepts the PO. The terms in Buyer’s PO shall NOT prevail over any contrary or inconsistent terms of Seller.


Seller shall furnish the goods and services at the prices stated in the PO. The prices can only be changed by an amendment to that PO. If the PO is placed on an open price basis, then the prices shall not be higher than Seller’s lowest prevailing prices on the date of that PO for similar goods or services in comparable quantities.


Due to the nature of the products that are produced by Geremarie Corporation, a Customer Entity which has placed a Purchase Order for Products which has been accepted by Supplier may not cancel such Purchase Order. Products ordered are engineered and built to specification, therefore, once the PO is acknowledged by Geremarie Corporation, no cancellations will be accepted. The terms in Buyer’s PO shall not prevail over any contrary or inconsistent terms of Seller.  In addition, Customer may not cancel any orders for prototypes, pre-production pilot orders, or one-time orders for products unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Geremarie Corporation.


Seller may not assign a PO without the prior written consent of Buyer, except that claims for monies due or to become due may be assigned by Seller, provided Seller supplies Buyer promptly with a copy of any such assignment. Payment to an assignee will be subject to set off or recoupment against any current or future claim(s) which Buyer may have against Seller. Buyer reserves the right to make direct settlements or adjustments in price with Seller without notice to any assignee. A provision setting forth these rights of Buyer shall be included in any assignment by Seller.


Except for goods proprietary to Seller, none of the work to be performed pursuant to a PO may be subcontracted without Buyer’s prior written consent. However, Seller’s obtaining parts and materials normally purchased by Seller shall not be construed as a subcontract.


Seller shall procure all facilities necessary for the timely performance of a PO. Except as provided in Section 6, all special tools and equipment shall be furnished by, and at the sole expense of, Seller and shall be kept in good condition for follow-on orders, and when necessary, shall be replaced by Seller without expense to Buyer.

(b) While Buyer-owned property is in Seller’s possession or control, Seller will be responsible for all loss or damage to it and will, at its sole expense, maintain extended insurance coverage in an amount sufficient to cover the replacement cost of it.
