General Terms and Conditions of Sale
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (these “Terms and Conditions”) apply to all contracts of sale of products known as “Products” hereafter, between LED Source, L.L.C., a Florida limited liability company (“LED Source”) and the customer or dealer (“Customer”). LED Source and Customer are sometimes referred to herein individually as a “Party” and together the “Parties.” Customer’s delivery of a Purchase Order or acceptance of any Products shall constitute acceptance of these Terms and Conditions along with any terms and conditions that a manufacturer requires LED Source to incorporate into a sale of Products. LED Source expressly rejects any terms and conditions submitted by Customer which are inconsistent with or in addition to the terms and conditions contained herein. No departure from these Terms and Conditions shall be binding unless agreed upon in writing between LED Source and Customer.
LED SOURCE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO AMEND, ALTER, MODIFY, OR REVOKE THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Estimates and Orders
Written estimates (“Estimates” or “Estimate”) issued by LED Source shall remain open for acceptance by Customer for a period of thirty (30) days from the date stated therein. If a Estimate is not accepted by Customer through the delivery of a purchase order (“Purchase Order”) to LED Source within such period, the Estimate will be deemed canceled. Upon delivery of a Purchase Order to LED Source incorporating the pricing information, terms and conditions set forth in the Estimate, Customer shall be bound to the terms contained in such Estimate and Purchase Order unless LED Source provides written notice to Customer within fifteen (15) business days of receipt of the Purchase Order that the same has been rejected. At LED Source’s option, written Estimates and Purchase Orders may be delivered by facsimile, electronic mail or by hand.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, LED Source will issue a Sales Order Confirmation (“Sales Order”) and if the terms relating to delivery time, quantity, price, payment terms, delivery clause or any other matter stated in such Sales Order vary from those contained in the Estimate or Customer’s Purchase Order and Customer does not wish to accept such variations, it must notify LED Source to that effect in writing within twenty-four (24) hours after the date of the Sales Order, failing which the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions set out in the Sales Order, which shall constitute a binding commitment between the Parties.

Unless otherwise stated in the LED Source Sales Order, all prices exclude any and all sales, use, excise, value added or other taxes and duties imposed by any governmental authority. The rate of any taxes or duties will be those applicable at the time of invoicing. All such taxes and duties shall be for Customer’s account.

The purchase price shall be payable pursuant to the agreed payment terms. Where no payment terms have been agreed, payment shall be prepaid in full.

(iii) Keep any Customer property in LED Source possession as a lien;
(iv) Claim interest at the rate of two percent (2%) per month or any part thereof, minimum twenty-five dollars ($25), as from the due date and until payment is made in full, including interest.

All shipping, insurance, duty and freight handling charges are the responsibility of the Customer and are not included in the purchase price. LED Source will provide shipping costs, for the Customer’s convenience, and will add those costs to the Sales Order. In all cases, LED Source will ask for insurance on shipments (unless told otherwise) but does not accept responsibility for the shipment. In the case of any damage or loss during shipment, it is the Customer’s responsibility to notify the driver upon delivery, and file a claim directly with the shipping company.

LED Source does not, by virtue of this Agreement, grant Customer the right to use any of LED Source’s trademarks, copyrights or intellectual property. Unless Customer is a separately licensed franchisee of LED Source’s affiliate, Customer will not represent to anyone that it is authorized by LED Source to be a reseller of the Products.
LED Source is not liable for loss or damage to unauthorized Product returns.
All orders are carefully packaged, double checked and shipped in good condition. Any shipment discrepancies must be reported within twenty-four (24) hours of delivery date.
