GuardRFID shall not be liable for any abduction, death, personal injury, property damage, or loss of any kind whatsoever to the Buyer or others, whether directly, indirectly, incidentally, consequentially, or otherwise, caused by the operation, non-operation, functioning, malfunctioning, or misuse of the product.


Security Interest

Buyer hereby grants to GuardRFID, and GuardRFID reserves, a purchase money security interest in each product sold by GuardRFID to Buyer in the amount of its purchase price. Any such security interest shall be satisfied by payment in full of the invoiced amount. Buyer agrees to execute any and all such documents, including financing statements, as may be necessary for GuardRFID to perfect such security interest.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, a copy of the Agreement may be filed on behalf of GuardRFID with the appropriate authorities at any time after signature by Buyer as and for a financing statement.


Prices

Products and services will be invoiced at prices in effect as of date of shipment (invoice date). Prices are not necessarily valid for other current and future sales. Any and all invoice errors must be disputed within 15 days of invoice date and are subject to correction by GuardRFID. Prices exclude any present or future federal, state, provincial, local, or other governmental taxes, duties, permit/license fees, brokerage charges, and tariffs applicable to the sale, transportation, or use of products purchased, all of which are the responsibility of the Buyer. All prices are FOB shipping point, unless agreed to in writing between GuardRFID and the Buyer.


Change in Buyer’s Financial Condition

GuardRFID reserves the right to cancel an order or require full or partial payment if (1) solvency of Buyer is in question, (2) Buyer files for bankruptcy; (3) there is an appointment of trustee or receiver for Buyer, or (4) execution of Buyer by creditors. GuardRFID also reserves the right to cancel Buyer’s credit at any time.


Delivery, Title, and Risk of Loss

All shipments will be FOB GuardRFID designated distribution center, and title and risk of loss will pass to Buyer when accepted for shipment by the freight company. On-time shipment is dependent upon Buyer promptly supplying all necessary documentation. GuardRFID will ship via its preferred carrier or agreed upon Buyer designated carrier. GuardRFID reserves the right to make partial shipments unless specifically stated otherwise on Buyer’s purchase order. Freight charges are prepaid by GuardRFID and will be invoiced to Buyer. Buyer must promptly file claims for damaged items with the freight carrier.

Patents

GuardRFID warrants that products furnished hereunder shall be delivered free of any rightful claim of any third-party for infringement of any United States patent. If notified promptly in writing and given authority, information, and assistance, and contingent upon Buyer not taking any position adverse to GuardRFID in connection with such claim, GuardRFID shall defend, or may settle at its expense, any suit or proceeding against Buyer so far as based on a claimed infringement which would result in a breach of the warranty stated in this section, and GuardRFID shall pay all damages and costs awarded therein against Buyer due to such breach. In case any product or part thereof is in such suit held to constitute such an infringement and the use for the purpose intended of said product or par is enjoined, GuardRFID shall, at its expense and option, either procure for Buyer the right to continue using said product or part, or replace same with a non-infringing product or part, or modify same so it becomes non-infringing, or remove the product and refund the purchase price (less reasonable depreciation for any period of use) and any transportation costs separately paid by Buyer. The foregoing states the entire liability of GuardRFID for patent infringement by the products or any part thereof. This does not apply to any product or part specified by Buyer or manufactured to Buyer’s design, or to the use of any product furnished hereunder in conjunction with any other product in a combination not furnished by GuardRFID as a part of this transaction. As to any such product or part, or use in such combination
