Purchase Order Terms & Conditions

51app Purchase Order Terms & Conditions

Print Version (PDF)

51app has entered into a commercial relationship with a third-party provider of licenses, goods or services referred to as the Company. This relationship, which may be evidenced by a PO, Single-Use Contract, or a Master Contract as described below, is governed by these base terms and conditions.

These base terms and conditions (which may also be referred to as the “base terms” or “Base Terms”) describe 51app’s minimum requirements for a vendor or service provider and may be attached to different types of commercial contracts, as follows:

1.1 If 51app engages the Company by issuing a PO referencing these base terms by a URL and there is no other contract between the parties related to the subject matter of the PO, these base terms and any Attachments are incorporated into the PO and together comprise a Contract referred to as a “PO-Based Contract”.

1.2 If 51app enters into an engagement with the Company by attaching these base terms to an Order or referencing these base terms by URL in an Order (other than a PO), these base terms and any Attachments are incorporated into the Order and together comprise a Contract referred to as a “Single-Use Contract”. A Single-Use Contract is effective when the Order is signed by both parties.

1.3 If 51app and Company agree to terms governing one or more present or future Orders, these base terms and any Attachments and Orders referencing the Contract are incorporated into a Contract Cover Sheet and together comprise a Contract referred to as a “Master Contract”. A Master Contract is effective when the Contract Cover Sheet is signed by both parties.

1.4 If 51app issues a PO under a Master Contract or Single-Use Contract, the PO describes the quantity, nature, and price of the Goods and Services identified in the PO and the PO’s base terms linked by URL do not amend the Master Contract or Single-Use Contract.

1.5 If the parties (or their Affiliates) execute separate contracts that govern legal, regulatory, corporate responsibility, and industry requirements that 51app requires vendors to comply with whether or not in the context of vendor relationships (each a “Corporate Responsibility Contract”), the Corporate Responsibility Contracts govern this Contract to the extent applicable and, in the event of a conflict between this Contract and a Corporate Responsibility Contract, the Corporate Responsibility Contract will govern. If there is a conflict between Corporate Responsibility Contracts, the conflict will be resolved in the manner that permits 51app to satisfy its legal, ethical, and commercial requirements and best practices.

1.6 If there is a conflict between the parts of this Contract: (A) an Attachment controls over these base terms; and (B) these base terms and any Attachments, respectively, control over any Order, Contract Cover Sheet, or PO.

1.7 Capitalized terms that are used but not otherwise defined in these base terms have the meaning assigned in the Definitions section. This Contract is not an exclusive arrangement. 51app is permitted to negotiate and enter contracts with any person for the same or similar activities.

This section applies only to a PO-Based Contract. The PO is an offer to Company from 51app to purchase Goods and Services described in the PO subject to these base terms and any Attachments. 51app is permitted to cancel the PO, in whole or in part, before Company accepts the offer. The Contract is formed when Company accepts the offer. Company can accept the offer when it (a) expressly accepts the PO, (b) commences performance of any of the Goods and Services in the PO, or (c) fails to provide to 51app a written rejection or a written counteroffer within 5 days after the Company’s receipt of the PO. By accepting the offer, the Company agrees that no Company terms and conditions apply to the Goods and Services and any such terms included with the Goods and Services are void. The Company acknowledges and agrees that 51app would not engage the Company under any terms other than these base terms. If the PO refers to a project proposal or similar document from the Company, the reference will be limited to the description and quantity of Goods and Services described in the document if included in the PO.

Company will provide the services described in and subject to the Contract. The Company acknowledges that 51app expects exceptional service, quality, professionalism and support from its vendors, and the Company must therefore provide services in accordance with the highest standards in its industry. Except to the extent expressly provided otherwise in the Contract, Company must perform its Contract obligations entirely within the United States and must not send or make available outside the United States any 51app information. This section describes the Company’s minimum obligations with respect to services. An Attachment may provide additional or different terms for services (for example, a Master Services Attachment).

4.1 Company will provide the licenses described in and subject to the Contract. An Order will provide the license terms for any licensed materials, but if Company provides its intellectual property to 51app and no license is specified, Company hereby grants to 51app a worldwide, non-sublicenseable, fully paid, royalty free license for 51app, its Affiliates, and its third party service providers to use the intellectual property to fulfill the purposes of this Contract and solely for the benefit of 51app as long as such third party service providers are bound to confidentiality provisions no less stringent than those in the Confidentiality section of this Contract.

4.2 51app and Company, respectively, own their previously existing or independently created intellectual property and retains their rights to third party intellectual property in their possession. Company assigns to 51app and will perform all actions necessary to perfect the assignment of, each deliverable and all intellectual property rights to any deliverables under the Contract. If protectable by copyright, Company and 51app agree that deliverables are “works made for hire” in favor of 51app within the meaning of the United States Copyright Act of 1976. If an Order provides that Company will retain intellectual property rights to materials it creates for 51app, Company hereby grants to 51app an exclusive right to the intellectual property for 3 years after its acceptance by 51app.

4.3 If Company incorporates its intellectual property into a deliverable, Company grants to 51app a perpetual, worldwide, assignable license for 51app and its third-party service providers to use that intellectual property in a manner consistent with 51app's use of the deliverable as described in the Contract (or, at minimum, in a commercially reasonable manner).

4.4 If 51app provides any of its property to the Company, the Company is permitted to use such material only to perform its Goods and Services and for no other purpose whatsoever. If the Goods and Services include, for example, the use of 51app’s trademarks to create materials for the public (including 51app personnel), the Company must seek 51app’s approval of each such use.

4.5 Company owns any feedback or suggestions made by 51app only if 51app submits the feedback or suggestion using a feedback form (such as on a website or within an application) except that (a) the feedback and suggestions are provided "AS IS" and 51app disclaims all representations and warranties relating thereto, and (b) 51app retains all intellectual property rights with respect to its confidential information. 51app retains all rights to any feedback or suggestions submitted any other way.

Company will deliver the goods described in and subject to this Contract. Title to goods will pass to 51app upon the earlier of (1) delivery at 51app’s designated facility or destination or (2) payment. Company will bear risk of loss until delivery at 51app’s designated facility or destination. Company will include a packing slip clearly identifying this Contract (and applicable PO number, if any) with each shipment of goods. 51app’s count of delivered goods will be deemed final and conclusive for goods delivered without a packing slip. Company will secure the lowest transportation and insurance rates and fulfill any carrier requirements. 51app will have no obligation to pay drayage, boxing or packing charges except to the extent expressly provided otherwise in the Contract. Company will be responsible for shipping costs for goods that are not shipped as provided for in this Contract, and 51app is permitted to (a) deduct these costs from amounts it owes to Company or (b) require Company to pay the costs directly. In the absence of specific instructions, Company will ship goods using the most economical mode of commercially reasonable transportation available consistent with the time and handling requirements in the Contract. This section describes the Company’s minimum obligations with respect to goods. An Attachment may provide additional or different requirements for certain Goods and Services (for example, a Master Purchase Attachment).

51app has the right to accept or reject Goods and Services. 51app is permitted to reject Goods and Services that 51app determines in its sole discretion do not to strictly conform to 51app’s Requirements. Payment for any part of the Goods and Services does not constitute acceptance by 51app. At 51app’s request, Company will promptly correct or replace nonconforming Goods and Services at Company’s sole cost until the Goods and Services are conforming. If Company does not promptly correct or replace nonconforming Goods and Services, Company must refund all amounts paid for the nonconforming Goods and Services and reimburse (or, at 51app’s request, offset the amounts against any other amounts owed by 51app) 51app’s costs to correct or replace the nonconforming Goods and Services. 51app has the right to return rejected Goods and Services or Goods and Services supplied in excess of quantities stated in this Contract at Company’s expense. 51app and Company will comply with the Testing and Acceptance Attachment, if attached.

51app is permitted to use licenses, goods, and services for 51app’s benefit and for the benefit of (a) any 51app Affiliate, (b) any entity that is partly owned by 51app or an Affiliate and for which 51app or its wholly owned subsidiary is authorized to direct operations and bind to legal obligations, or (c) any entity that 51app or a 51app Affiliate manages pursuant to a management agreement. 51app is permitted to also direct the Company to deliver Goods and Services to any of (a) – (c) (individually and collectively, “Service Recipients”).

8.1 Each party is required to hold the other party’s confidential information in confidence and will protect the other party’s confidential information using the level of care the party receiving confidential information (or creating confidential information on the other party’s behalf) would use to protect its own sensitive and confidential information, but in no event less than reasonable care.

8.2 Each party is permitted use the other party's confidential information only for the purpose of performing its obligations or exercising its rights under this Contract and will not use the information for any other purpose whatsoever.

8.3 Neither party will, without the written permission of the other party, disclose the other party's confidential information to any person who does not have a need to know the information to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under this Contract, or to any third party. Each party is permitted to disclose the confidential information of the other party only (a) as expressly permitted in writing by the other party, (b) in response to a lawful government order, and (c) as otherwise required by Law, and must in each case disclose only the minimum necessary confidential information. If a party is required to disclose confidential information by Law, it will, if permitted by Law, provide the other party with prompt written notice so that the other party can seek a protective order. Any person to whom the receiving party discloses the disclosing party’s confidential information must be bound by confidentiality terms no less stringent than those in this section.

8.4 A party will notify the other party of a breach of this section or any other improper disclosure of confidential information within 24 hours after it has reason to believe the breach or disclosure occurred.

8.5 A violation of this section will cause irreparable harm that cannot be adequately compensated by a judgment for damages and the damages would in any event be difficult to calculate. The non-breaching party is entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this section without any requirement to post bond.

8.6 The receiving party will return or destroy (and certify destruction of) the confidential information of the other party within 30 days after the termination or expiration of the Contract. The receiving party will promptly notify the other party if the return or destruction of confidential information is impossible or impracticable. The receiving party may retain confidential information of the other party in the receiving party’s customary data backups subject to the terms of this Contract even if the Contract is terminated or expires.

8.7 Confidential information of a party includes any information the party provides to the other party (or that the other party creates) in connection with this Contract that a reasonable person in the disclosing party's position would deem confidential, including derivative works, subsets, summaries and other materials incorporating confidential information. Except for any personally identifiable information, Confidential Information does not include information that is lawfully and without breach of any confidentiality obligation: (a) already known to or otherwise in the possession of a party at the time of receipt from the other party; (b) available to the public; (c) obtained from a third party; or (d) independently developed by a party.

8.8 Even if the Contract is terminated or expires, the receiving party’s obligations under this section will continue (a) for 5 years after disclosure of the confidential information or (b) with respect to any trade secret or personally identifiable information, indefinitely.

8.9 The Company will implement and maintain at its sole cost information security, privacy and governance policies and practices that are, at minimum, appropriate for the requirements of this Confidentiality section and that comply with Law.

9.1 Prices set forth in this Contract are firm and not subject to change except as expressly provided otherwise in the Order. If Company replaces a Commitment with another, higher-priced good, deliverable, or service acceptable to 51app, the price in the Order for the replaced good, deliverable, or service will apply to the new good, deliverable, or service. Without limiting any of 51app’s other rights or remedies under this Contract, if Company replaces any Goods and Services with another good, deliverable, or service with reduced quality, functionality, or features, 51app may at its sole discretion accept the Goods and Services and reduce fees equitably. Company warrants that prices for Goods and Services must be no greater than the lowest price Company offers to its customers for similar Goods and Services and will reduce its prices under this Contract correspondingly. 51app’s sole financial obligation for Goods and Services will be the fees described in this Contract.

9.2 Within 20 days after the earlier of completion and delivery of Goods and Services, or the end of each calendar month, Company will submit a complete and accurate invoice as directed in writing by 51app. 51app will have no obligation to pay for Goods and Services for which an invoice is submitted more than 90 days after the charges are incurred. 51app will have no obligation to pay, and Vendor will not, directly or indirectly, request reimbursement or charge 51app for, travel and related expenses or any other expense not required to perform any Goods and Services. Any permitted expenses must comply with 51app’s then-applicable policies and procedures.

9.3 51app will pay complete and correct undisputed invoices within 60 days after 51app’s receipt of the invoice. If 51app disputes an invoice, Company must issue separate replacement invoices for the undisputed and disputed portions, and 51app will pay the invoice for the undisputed portion in accordance with this provision. 51app is permitted to withhold payment of the disputed invoice (or the replacement invoice issued for the disputed portion) without penalty or interest, and the parties will negotiate in good faith to resolve the dispute as soon as practicable and continue to perform their obligations in this Contract. If the dispute is not resolved informally within 30 days after 51app’s notice thereof, 51app or Company will then be permitted to pursue their respective rights or remedies available under this Contract, at law or equity. If attached, this dispute is subject to the Dispute Resolution Attachment. 51app is permitted to set off claims or amounts that Company or its Affiliates owe under the Contract against any amounts 51app or its Affiliates owe under this Contract or any other contracts with Company or its Affiliates.

Applicable state and local sales, use and other similar taxes, and any customs duties, excise tax, value added tax, processing tax or any levy or imposition which Company now or hereafter will be required to pay to any authoritative governmental body as a result of this Contract or the Goods and Services, on behalf of 51app, when identified as a line item, will be added to all applicable invoices and 51app shall be responsible for reimbursement to Company of any such taxes relating to undisputed invoices. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, it is the Company’s responsibility to remit such applicable taxes to the State jurisdiction as required by law, if Company has invoiced and collected such taxes from 51app. Additionally, 51app will be responsible for any personal property taxes imposed on all materials owned by 51app, including both inventory and finished, products, goods, and services, and held at Company’s plants or warehouses, all as determined by the transfer of title for finished goods. If upon audit Company is assessed additional taxes in connection with this Contract or the Goods and Services, Company reserves the right to invoice 51app retroactively for such additional assessment for taxes, but not interest and penalties. 51app reserves the right to require that any such invoiced additional taxes be appealed through the respective authoritative governmental body’s administrative and judicial processes. The cost of such an appeal will be borne by Company if the assessed additional tax is reduced, and by 51app if the assessed additional tax is upheld. 51app may provide Company with an exemption certificate, prepared as per applicable law, or any other evidence reasonably acceptable to Company that any such taxes do not apply to products, goods and other Goods and Services provided to 51app by Company. If any Goods and Services or portion thereof believed to be exempt from taxes based on such certificate, is determined subsequently to be taxable, 51app shall hold Company harmless from the tax liability assessed and pay the tax due, including any interests and penalty. 51app will not be responsible for any taxes levied or imposed on the gross or net income of Company. In no event will 51app’s obligation exceed the relevant state statute of limitations on assessment of an applicable tax. Any income, franchise, gross receipts, or other taxes, whether related to, or imposed by employment withholding for Company’s personnel or Company’s property or not, and any associated penalties or interest, assessable under State law against the Company are the sole responsibility of the Company.

Company will use best efforts to mitigate the effects of a Force Majeure Event, including allocating all available production and resources to 51app before allocating production and resources to other Company customers. If 51app experiences a Force Majeure Event, if requested in writing by 51app, Company will suspend performance of affected Goods and Services and resume performance of Goods and Services when the Force Majeure Event has ceased. 51app will have no liability for any Goods and Services affected by the Force Majeure Event.

Company is permitted to terminate this Contract if 51app fails to cure a material default under this Contract within 30 days after 51app receives written notice of the material default.

Company will have no other claim against 51app on account of 51app’s termination of this Contract.

13.2 Company will, upon written request, make these records available to 51app and any governmental or regulatory authority and their respective duly authorized representatives. Company must provide reasonable assistance to 51app or its designated agent to conduct audits. Any audit by 51app will be conducted upon reasonable notice and during regular business hours and will be at 51app’s expense unless the audit reveals an overcharge of more than 5% for the audited Goods and Services or a material violation of Company’s obligations, in which event Company will promptly reimburse 51app the reasonable cost of the audit and any identified overcharges and take other remediation activities required by 51app. 51app’s use of any third-party auditor that is a competitor of Company will be subject to Company’s prior written approval, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

4.Anticorruption Laws. Seller further represents and warrants that in the performance of this Agreement Seller and its employees and agents will not violate federal, national, local or other anti-corruption laws (including provisions of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, “Anti-Corruption Laws”) that may be applicable to one or both parties to this Agreement, and have not previously engaged in conduct that would have violated Anti-Corruption Laws, including but not limited to obtaining or retaining business or a business advantage through unlawful payments, bribes, kickbacks, gifts, or other illegal inducements. Seller shall maintain anti-bribery policies and procedures and true and accurate records consistent with the requirements of the applicable Anti-Corruption Laws. Seller agrees to immediately notify HNFS if it violates any Anti-Corruption Laws in the performance of this Agreement.

5.Compensation.
For and in consideration of the timely and proper delivery of Goods, HNFS’s total obligation to Seller shall not exceed the amount on the front of this Purchase Order. Unless otherwise specified, the prices include all charges for packaging, handling, storage, delivery, and all taxes. Seller will pay all delivery charges in excess of the delivery charges which HNFS has agreed in writing to pay. If the Seller makes any price reductions after the date of this Purchase Order but prior to the payment date, such price reductions will be applicable to this Purchase Order. Seller warrants that the prices of the Goods covered by this Purchase Order are not in excess of the Seller’s lowest prices in effect on the date of this Purchase Order for comparable quantities of similar Goods. Any change to the Purchase Order amount shall only be authorized in writing by a HNFS Change Order, fully executed by both HNFS and Seller.

6.Delivery. HNFS will not be obligated to accept substitutions, untimely deliveries, deliveries in quantities other than those ordered by HNFS or deliveries of Goods failing to conform to Seller’s warranties contained elsewhere in this Purchase Order. Time is of the essence in this Purchase Order. Acceptance by HNFS whether of substitutions, late deliveries, partial deliveries or deliveries of non-conforming Goods shall not waive the delivery schedule set forth in this Purchase Order. Seller will immediately give written notice to HNFS of any actual or potential cause or event which threatens the timely performance of this Purchase Order. Unless otherwise specified in this Purchase Order, Seller will retain the risk of loss or damage in transit until Goods are actually delivered to HNFS’ requested destination.

7.Packing and Marking. The reports and any other Goods to be furnished hereunder shall be adequately packaged and packed to ensure safe delivery at destination. All products shall be clearly marked to identify the contents, the sender, and the individual/office to which they are being sent. Extra care shall be taken in packaging electronic media to protect against damage and to ensure that electronic media does not become separated from the routing markings. All reports and other products to be furnished shall be shipped via a method that provides for acknowledgement of receipt. Seller shall retain such receipts. Shipments containing electronic media shall be marked as such and shall include the statement “Do Not X-ray”. Seller shall include the prime contract number and seller number on all products to be furnished under the seller.

8.Inspection and WorkmanshipFinal inspection and acceptance of Goods shall be made by HNFS, after delivery at destination unless otherwise expressly indicated in this Purchase Order, and shall be conclusive except as regards latent defects, fraud, such gross mistakes as amount to fraud, and the Seller’s warranty obligations.

Any Goods purchased hereunder shall be subject to inspection and tests by HNFS to the extent practicable at all times and places, including the period of manufacture and in any event, prior to acceptance. If HNFS makes any inspection or test on the premises of the Seller, the Seller shall, without additional charge, provide all reasonable facilities and assistance for the safety and convenience of HNFS’ inspectors in the performance of their duties. All inspections and tests shall be performed in such manner as not to unduly delay the work. No inspection or test made prior to final inspection and acceptance shall relieve the Seller from responsibility for defects or other failures to meet the requirements of this Purchase Order.

In case any Goods are defective in material or workmanship, or otherwise not in conformity with the requirements of this Purchase Order, HNFS shall have the right either to reject it, require its correction, or accept it with an equitable adjustment in price. Any Goods that have been rejected or require correction shall be removed and corrected, or replaced at the expense of the Seller, promptly after notice. If, after being requested by HNFS, the Seller fails to promptly replace or correct any defective Goods, HNFS may replace or correct such Goods and charge the Seller the cost occasioned HNFS thereby, or without further notice, terminate the Purchase Order for default according to the clause hereof entitled, “Default”.

The Seller shall provide and maintain an inspection system according to sound business practice and as otherwise provided in the Purchase Order. Records of any inspection work by the Seller shall be kept complete and available to HNFS during the performance of this Purchase Order and for such longer periods, and in such manner as may be specified elsewhere in this Purchase Order.

9.Working Conditions and Human Rights.
By acceptance of this order, seller agrees that any material violation of law by seller relating to basic working conditions and human rights, including laws regarding child labor, slavery, and human trafficking, applicable to sellers performance under this purchase order may be considered a material breach of contract for which HNFS may elect to cancel any open orders with the seller at no cost to HNFS.

10.WARRANTY.
Seller warrants that Seller and its employees shall, in providing Goods hereunder, exercise the degree of skill, care and diligence consistent with industry standards in accordance with any and all requirements, specifications or drawings provided by HNFS, and that such Work will be suitable for the purpose intended. Should Seller fail to perform to those standards, it shall (a) without cost to Client or HNFS, re-perform and correct any substandard Work; and (b) reimburse HNFS for HNFS’s direct, incidental, consequential or other costs resulting from or arising in connection with breach of such warranty. If Seller fails to replace or correct any such Goods after reasonable notice, HNFS may, at its sole option, cause such Goods to be replaced or corrected and all costs and expenses incurred in connection therewith shall be borne by Seller. However, in the event that the Goods deficiency affects the immediate health and safety of HNFS, it’s Client, or others, then HNFS shall have the right to direct re-performance and correction of the substandard Work by whatever means is most immediate, and such reasonable costs associated with said correction shall be the sole responsibility of Seller.

Seller also warrants that any goods supplied are merchantable and comply with specifications, drawings and data submitted to or by HNFS, are free from defects, whether patent or latent, in design, material and workmanship, and are suitable for the particular use for which the items are purchased and are free and clear of all liens and encumbrances. Seller shall transfer all manufacturer or Seller warranties associated with the goods supplied to HNFS and/or entity designated by HNFS.

This Warranty Article supersedes any lesser warranty, whether stated or implied, which may be contained in submittals or other documentation delivered to HNFS by Seller under this Seller PO, regardless of whether the submittals or other documentation is accepted or otherwise approved by HNFS, unless a lesser warranty is specifically identified in the Seller PO. Any Work corrected as a consequence of this Article shall be subject to the same warranty as provided for the original Goods.

11.Payment. Unless other payment provisions are specified elsewhere in this Purchase Order, payment shall be made upon the later of (i) final acceptance by HNFS of the Goods, or (ii) submission by Seller of a proper invoice. Payment for Goods does not constitute acceptance. HNFS will take advantage of any discounts incorporated elsewhere in this Purchase Order, or found on individual invoices, whichever discount is more favorable to HNFS. Delays in receiving invoice(s), errors or omissions on invoice(s), or lack of supporting documentation required by the terms of this Purchase Order, will be cause for HNFS to withhold payment without losing discount privileges. The first day of any discount period shall be the later of (i) the first working day of HNFS following final acceptance of the Goods, or (ii) HNFS’ receipt of a proper invoice. HNFS may make adjustments to amounts invoiced by Seller for shortages, rejection, or other failure to comply with the provisions of this Purchase Order.

HNFS will notify Seller of any such adjustments. Unless specified elsewhere in this Purchase Order, Seller shall furnish a separate invoice for each shipment of Goods or major increment of service rendered.

Seller’s name;
Invoice number and date;
Purchase Order number, line item number, description of the Goods or Services, quantity, unit of measure, unit price, and extended total;

By virtue of its submission to HNFS, each invoice or claim from Seller shall be deemed to include a warranty by Seller that all amounts claimed by Seller are due and proper. HNFS shall have the right to audit such claim or invoice and any books, documents or records of Seller that involve transactions relating to or which form the basis of said invoice or claim. In addition to any other rights HNFS may have under this Purchase Order, HNFS shall have a right of action against Seller for any breach of such warranty. Upon request by HNFS, Seller shall provide written certification of Seller’s invoices or claims in such terms, and with such signatures, as HNFS may prescribe; and HNFS may ignore any invoice or claim not so certified. Seller shall ensure that each of the Sellers and all tiers is bound by the same obligations as are imposed on Seller by this paragraph.

12.Risk of Loss. Notwithstanding any term of this Purchase Order, or any inference therefrom, the risk for any loss of or damage to or destruction of Goods described in this Purchase Order shall be borne by Seller at all times until the Goods are received and accepted by HNFS. Title to the Goods passes to HNFS upon final acceptance after inspection.

13.Insurance Requirements. Seller agrees that any Services to be rendered or Goods to be furnished by Seller under this Purchase Order shall be rendered or furnished as an independent HNFS, and Seller shall be solely responsible for the safe conduct of the performance under this Purchase Order and for the protection of all persons, premises or facilities involved in said performance. Seller shall provide all safeguards and take all necessary precautions to prevent the occurrence of any accident, injury, death or loss to any person or property in the performance of this Purchase Order, whether on Seller’s property, HNFS’ property or elsewhere.

Seller will indemnify and defend HNFS and hold HNFS harmless from and against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, demands, suits, actions, proceedings and subrogation arising from or relating to the performance of Seller’s work.

Seller will assure that all of the foregoing insurance will identify HNFS as a certificate holder and additional named insured, and Seller will provide a certificate of insurance upon request evidencing such coverage. Such insurances shall be primary to any other insurance maintained by HNFS. Seller will also assure that all certificates must provide ten (10) days’ notice to HNFS prior to cancellation or alteration of the insurance.

Claims asserted thereafter shall be deemed waived. Failure to agree to any adjustment shall be a dispute under the Disputes Section. However, nothing in this Section shall excuse Seller from proceeding with its Work as directed by HNFS.

Such notice shall identify the reason(s) for Seller’s disagreement, including supporting documentation as required to substantiate Seller’s concern(s). If Seller fails to provide HNFS with such notice of disagreement within the time period herein stipulated, then Seller shall be deemed to have accepted the Change Order as written and Seller agrees that it has waived its right to disagree with the actions, value, and/or schedule set forth in the Change Order.

17.Notification of Change.

Seller hereby agrees that it shall have no right to additional compensation, excuse for non-performance, or any claim that may be based on any act, failure to act, event, thing, or occurrence for which timely written notice of potential changes as herein required was not filed.

18.Disputes. If any claim, controversy or dispute of any kind or nature whatsoever arises between HNFS and Seller and such dispute cannot be settled through negotiation, then any dispute shall be determined in appropriate legal proceedings, first through non-binding Alternative Dispute Resolution proceedings, if agreed to by the parties, then, if necessary, in a court of law, consistent with the Governing Law Article. Pending the resolution of any dispute under this Purchase Order, the Seller shall proceed as directed by written notice from HNFS. Disputes under this Purchase Order shall not affect any other Purchase Order in place or other Work being performed by Seller.

10.Warranty.
Seller warrants that Seller and its employees shall, in providing Goods hereunder, exercise the degree of skill, care and diligence consistent with industry standards in accordance with any and all requirements, specifications or drawings provided by HNFS, and that such Work will be suitable for the purpose intended.

HNFS will take advantage of any discounts incorporated elsewhere in this Purchase Order, or found on individual invoices, whichever discount is more favorable to HNFS.

The first day of any discount period shall be the later of (i) the first working day of HNFS following final acceptance of the Goods, or (ii) HNFS’ receipt of a proper invoice.
