Price, taxes and quotations
Prices are subject to change on thirty days notice to Buyer. Any order that can be cancelled and rescheduled pursuant to page 2 paragraph (a) is subject to a price change immediately. All prices are exclusive of any present or future sales, revenue or excise tax, value added tax, turnover tax, import duty (including brokerage fees) or other tax applicable to the manufacture or sale of any product. Such taxes, when applicable, shall be paid by Buyer unless Buyer provides a proper tax exemption certificate. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the parties, prices quoted by GAS are those current at the date of quotation and shall be subject to variation by GAS.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, sales are FOB GASâ€™s facility (delivery is ex works). GAS may deliver goods in one or more consignment and invoice each consignment separately.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, payment terms shall be net thirty (30) days from the date of invoice (not end of the month). Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all payments are to be in United States dollars. For contracts in Europe, GAS may require payment to be secured by an irrevocable letter of credit or a bank guarantee acceptable to GAS should credit worthiness for the amount not be established prior or should the amount exceed existing credit limit. Where payment is made by letter of credit, all costs of collection shall be for Buyerâ€™s account. In the event that GAS is required to bring legal action to collect delinquent accounts, Buyer agrees to pay reasonable attorneys fees and costs of suit.
Acceptance, title and risk of loss
Buyer shall notify GAS of any visible defects, quantity shortage or incorrect product shipments within seven (7) days of receipt of the shipment. Failure to notify GAS in writing of any visible defects in the products within such period shall be deemed an unqualified acceptance.

Risk in the products shall pass to Buyer as soon as the goods have been placed with a transport agent.
(a) Buyers Cancellation for Convenience: Buyer may cancel any order for convenience on the following terms:

Except as specified below, products sold hereunder shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship and shall conform to the OEMâ€™s or Overhaul published specifications or other specifications accepted in writing by GAS for a period of (90) ninety days from the date of shipment of the products. The foregoing warranty does not apply to any products which have been subject to misuse, neglect, accident or modification or which have been soldered or altered such that they are not capable of being tested under normal test conditions. GAS shall make the final determination as to whether its products are defective. GASâ€™s sole obligation for product failing to comply with this warranty shall be, at its option, to either repair, replace or issue credit for the nonconforming product where, within fourteen (14) days of the expiration of the warranty period,
(i) GAS has received written notice of any nonconformity;
(ii) After GASâ€™s written authorization, Buyer has returned the nonconforming product to GAS; and
(iii) GAS has determined that the product is nonconforming and that such nonconformity is not the result of improper installation, repair or other misuse.

If GAS has any liability for breach of contract, breach of any implied condition, warranty or representation, the agreed liability of GAS to Buyer shall be limited in respect of any occurrence or series of occurrences to the contractual value of the goods or services that re the subject of the contract.
In no event shall GASâ€™s liability for such damages and costs (including legal costs) exceed the contractual value of the goods or services that are subject of the lawsuit. In providing such defence, or in the event that such product is held to constitute infringement and the use of the product is enjoined, GAS, in its discretion.
Except as required by law, neither party shall use (except for purposes connected with the performance of its obligations hereunder), divulge or communicate to any third party any information of the other it reasonably knows to be confidential.

The anticipated delivery date shall be deemed extended for a period of time equal to the time lost due to any delay excusable under this provision.
