Purchase Order Terms and Conditions

Any discrepancies in fulfilling the terms, value or quantity of the Purchase Order must be resolved between CorneaGen and Supplier prior to the delivery of any goods, services or commodities to CorneaGen. Specific terms and conditions set forth in written contracts executed in writing between CorneaGen and supplier may supersede any conflicting Purchase Order Terms and Conditions that follow, all other terms and conditions apply. CorneaGen expressly rejects any additional or different terms or provisions preprinted or otherwise that have not been expressly approved in writing.
Except where expressly prohibited by statutory or constitutional restrictions governing choice of law by a political subdivision, agency or instrumentality, these terms, all transactions to which they apply, and any disputes arising hereunder will be governed by the laws of the state of Washington and the United States of America, excluding any conflict of law provisions thereof and the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in King County, Washington.
The transmission of a Purchase Order by fax, email or any other electronic means shall have the same legal significance of a duly executed original delivered to the Supplier.
Pricing and Timing
A Purchase Order must not be filled at a price higher than shown on the face of the Purchase Order. If no price is set forth on the front of the Purchase Order, the goods or services will be billed at the price last quoted or at the prevailing market price, whichever is lower, and, in any event, goods and services ordered under this Order will not be billed at a higher price than last quoted or charged without CorneaGen’s specific written authorization. If Supplier reduces its prices for such goods and/or services during the term of the Purchase Order, Supplier shall correspondingly reduce the prices of goods and/or services sold thereafter to Purchaser under the Purchase Order. Where timetables or delivery date are specified on the face of the Purchase Order, time will be of the essence in relation to the same.
CorneaGen reserves the right to make changes to a Purchase Order, including changes to quantities, methods of shipment or packing and delivery schedules or location of delivery. No substitutions, alterations, additions or deletions are authorized to a Purchase Order by Supplier without the written consent of the CorneaGen purchasing agent who sent the initial Purchase Order document or the authorized CorneaGen agent reassigned to the Purchase Order. If any such changes cause an increase or decrease in the cost of or the time required for the performance of any work under a Purchase Order, an equitable adjustment will be made in the price or delivery schedule, or both, and the Purchase Order will be modified in writing accordingly.
Invoices, payment, and taxes
(a) Invoices shall be rendered on completion of services or delivery of goods and shall contain the Purchase Order Number, item number, description of goods or services, quantities, unit prices, date(s) rendered and total purchase price. Each invoice must refer to one, and only one, purchase order.

Any product deemed unsatisfactory as a result of inspection will be held for review with the Supplier. If the Supplier fails to respond to queries regarding defective product within 7 days, the product will be returned to the Supplier at the Suppliers expense and/or disposed of. Freight to and from the origination point for returned or excess goods will be paid by the Supplier. Pre-payments made by CorneaGen for services and products that are processed prior to inspection or usage does not constitute acceptance for goods or services later received.

If CorneaGen rightfully rejects the goods, receives a non-conforming order, or revokes its acceptance, risk of loss and title shall be deemed to have remained with Supplier. The responsibility for freight damaged merchandise will be assumed by Supplier. Any unauthorized shipment, which will result in excess transportation charges, must be fully prepaid by the Supplier.
