Unless otherwise expressly specified on the face hereof, the following terms and conditions of sale (the “Terms”) shall apply to the sale by Golden Argosy LLC and/or any of its subsidiaries (collectively “ARGOSY”) to the purchaser named on the face hereof (the “Customer”), of the products specified on the face hereof (the “Products”) and any related services provided by ARGOSY.
Acceptance of any order by ARGOSY is EXPRESSLY CONDITIONED on Customer’s assent to the Terms and the waiver by Customer of any terms and conditions set forth in any order form, purchase order, confirmation, or any other communication of Customer, whether previously or hereafter delivered to ARGOSY, which either add to, differ from, modify, conflict with or are otherwise inconsistent with any term or condition set forth herein (collectively the “Conflicting Terms”). ARGOSY hereby gives notice of its objection to any Conflicting Terms. Customer’s failure to object in writing to the Terms set forth herein prior to the earlier of i) Customer’s acceptance of the Products, or ii) fifteen (15) days after delivery of these Terms to Customer shall constitute agreement by Customer to these Terms. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event of any Conflicting Terms, the terms and conditions of these Terms shall prevail and govern.
ARGOSY will supply products’ shelf life per specification requirement or unless otherwise agreed to. Shipping tolerance +/-10% is allowed for all products. Argosy will not be responsible for any additional costs or charges incurred as a result of a delay in shipment caused by the customer, customer’s shipping agent, forwarder, etc, including but not limited to credit hold, and such costs or charges will be billed to the customer.
Per supplier’s recommendation and guidelines, shipments with dry ice should be re-iced within 72hours or earlier depending on external environmental factors that can affect the dissipation rate of the dry ice. Shipments should be transported in refrigerated trucks and, if needed, stored in cold storage at/or below required temperatures (minus (-10) F Deg / minus (-24) C Deg) to ensure that shipments are not exposed to unqualified temperatures at any time during transit. Please keep the shipment at the temperature of at or below minus (-10) F Deg /minus (-24) C Deg at all times during transportation. Note that any damage caused by failure to comply is Customer’s
Unless otherwise mutually agreed, Argosy’s Terms of delivery are F.O.B. point of shipment (or Ex Works Shipping Point per ICC INCOTERMS 2020). Risk of loss and title shall pass to Customer when product is picked up by carrier or forwarder, or any other person acting on behalf of Customer or any such carrier or forwarder. Unless specifically otherwise set forth, all prices do not include the cost of freight or handling, or costs or charges for insurance or any production, sales, use, transfer, transportation, excise or other tax, tariffs, or custom duties, and Customer shall pay directly or be charged by ARGOSY for all such costs and/or charges in addition to the price(s) of the product supplied hereunder and Customer shall be obligated to pay such charges and costs on the same terms as apply to payment of the price(s) hereunder.
If the full payment of the purchase is not received when due as specified on the ARGOSY Sales Order Acknowledgement or, if not so specified, within 30 days after the shipment date, ARGOSY reserves the right to charge interest on any unpaid balance at a rate of up to 1 1/2% per month (or the highest rate permitted by applicable laws, if lower) from the due date. ARGOSY may suspend or cancel deliveries of ordered Products if Customer fails to pay when due any amount owed by it to ARGOSY for any goods or services. ARGOSY reserves the right to require from Customer, at any time, satisfactory assurance of performance of Customer’s payment obligations to ARGOSY, and refusal or failure promptly to furnish such assurance will entitle ARGOSY to suspend or cancel further deliveries to Customer.
Any order by Customer may be cancelled or changed only with the prior written consent of ARGOSY and/or ARGOSY’s vendor. Any cancellation of product that ARGOSY’s vendor has begun to manufacture or process will include cancellation charges or reimbursement of costs incurred prior to the request for cancellation. In this case, Customer agrees to pay ARGOSY for any and all charges imposed by ARGOSY’s vendor as a condition of providing the cancellation of the order. No Product (whether or not it is defective or nonconforming) may be returned to ARGOSY without the Customer’s written request and ARGOSY’s prior written consent. If a Product is returned with such consent, it shall thereupon become the property of ARGOSY. Any assignment of Customer’s rights or obligations hereunder will be void without ARGOSY’s prior written consent.
All products ordered are subject to compliance with export control laws and regulations of the United States and/or other applicable government authorities. The products may not be used for any military, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, or missile and rocket delivery systems applications; they may not be re-exported or otherwise transferred to Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria or other U.S. sanctioned countries. Argosy will ask the end-user to sign a certification acknowledging these restrictions in some cases. All orders are screened for applicable export compliance laws. Customer agrees to allow Argosy to conduct site visit to verify products have been used for the provided end use (s), if necessary.

CUSTOMER’S FAILURE TO PROVIDE SPECIFIC WRITTEN NOTICE OF ANY CLAIMED DEFECT OR NON-CONFORMITY WITHIN THIRTY DAYS AFTER DELIVERY OF THE PRODUCTS SHALL CONSTITUTE A WAIVER OF ANY CLAIM BY CUSTOMER THAT ANY PORTION OF THE PRODUCTS WAS DEFECTIVE OR NONCONFORMING IN ANY RESPECT.
ARGOSY will not be liable for loss or damage of any kind resulting from any delay in delivery or failure to supply ordered Products or otherwise carry out its obligations under the agreement with Customer due to causes beyond its reasonable control including, but not limited to, any acts of God, wars, riots, pandemic or acts of terrorism, fires, floods, accidents, labor disputes, logistics issues, shortages, governmental action or equipment failures, and no such event will relieve Customer of its obligations to make payments for other deliveries of Products to Customer. ARGOSY also reserves the right to cancel without recourse or liability any order or agreement with Customer in the event of any material adverse change in the cost of or availability of materials or other unforeseen circumstances.
Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless ARGOSY and its affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, directors, officers, owners, members, shareholders, managers, members and agents (collectively the “Indemnities”) from and against any and all actions, claims, causes of action, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and disbursements of counsel) which may be incurred by or asserted against any Indemnities and which arise from or relate to the use of the Products by Customer or any third party, or which may arise from or relate to a breach or violation under Section 7 above and Section 13 below.
No amendment, change, alteration, waiver or modification of the Terms shall be binding upon ARGOSY unless made in writing and signed by ARGOSY.
