 Purchase Order - General Terms and Conditions

1) Acceptance of this purchase order (the "Purchase Order") by any means of acknowledgment, or any shipment of goods ordered or performance of services called for hereunder, shall constitute acceptance by Seller of the terms and conditions contained in this Purchase Order. Any terms or conditions proposed by the Seller inconsistent with or in addition to the terms and conditions contained herein shall be void and of no effect unless specifically agreed to by Grayhill, Inc. (the "Buyer" or "Grayhill") in writing. This Purchase Order (and the terms and conditions set forth herein), together with any such approved written modifications, constitute the entire agreement between the parties.
 
2) Buyer reserves the right to withdraw this order at any time prior to actual receipt of written acceptance hereof by Seller. Notwithstanding receipt of acceptance, Buyer may also cancel this order in whole or in part and be relieved of all liability for any delivered or undelivered portion (as applicable), in addition to any other right or remedy, in the event:
a) that any merchandise from Seller fails to meet Buyer's specifications; or
b) that Seller fails to deliver, at any time, goods strictly conforming to the terms of this order; or
c) as to undelivered merchandise, that as a result of fire or other casualty or other circumstances beyond the control of Buyer, Buyer cannot operate (one or more of) its places of business; or
d) as to undelivered merchandise, of Seller's bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, bankruptcy reorganization, assignment for the benefit of creditors, or cessation of business; or
e) that Seller fails to deliver any merchandise on time.
f) that Seller's "Vendor Ranking" falls into an unacceptable catagory as defined by Grayhill policy.
Payment by Buyer for goods delivered hereunder shall not constitute acceptance of defective goods.

3) Delivery shall not be deemed to be complete until conforming goods have been actually received and accepted by Buyer. Notwithstanding any agreement by Buyer to pay freight, express or other transportation charges, the risk of loss or damage in transit shall be upon the Seller.

4) Quantities of articles shipped must be equal to, or a maximum of 5% over, the Purchase Order quantity for each line item. Short shipments, or shipments exceeding 5% of the Purchase Order quantity may be rejected by Buyer at incoming, or the excess may be returned to Seller at the Buyer's Purchasing Agent's discretion. Freight charges for any returned overage of articles are at the Seller's expense.

5) Articles must arrive at Buyer's dock within a shipping window of 5 days early and zero days late. Articles that arrive earlier or later than this delivery window, will be counted as early or late shipments, and will be reflected as such on the vendor ranking scorecard. Buyer reserves the right to reject early/late shipments at the discretion of Buyer's Purchasing Agent or any officer of Buyer.

6) Seller agrees to adhere to the policy in the Buyer's Materials Standards Manual (MSM Section 10) to maintain a vendor ranking score (as determined by Buyer) greater than 80, preferably greater than 90. Preferred Vendors are defined as those maintaining a vendor ranking score (as determined by Buyer) greater than 95 over a 4 quarter running average (with such four quarters being those immediately prior to the quarter in which such definition is being applied by Buyer). Seller agrees that if the Seller's vendor ranking score (as determined by Buyer) falls below 80, Seller will respond with written corrective actions within 30 days of receiving such score. In addition to Buyer's other rights under this Purchase Order, it is agreed by Seller that failure of Seller to so respond with written corrective actions which are accepted by Grayhill, and/or to improve (to Buyer's satisfaction) the Seller's vendor ranking score (as determined by Buyer), may result in termination of the business relationship with Seller.

7) Seller certifies, covenants, represents and warrants that all goods delivered under this Purchase Order will conform with the Buyer's specifications and approved sample, if furnished, and shall be free from defects, including latent defects. Seller agrees that ESD packaging is required on all electronic parts and assemblies in accordance with ANSI/ESD S20.20.  Process requirements for critical characteristics are found in the current issues of Grayhill Standard Operating Procedure Number 2338 and all deliveries to Grayhill for resale parts must adhere to this Grayhill Procedure (and Seller confirms it has reviewed said Grayhill Procedure and agrees thereto). Seller certifies, covenants, represents and warrants said goods to be fit and safe for their intended use, and acceptance of this order shall constitute an agreement by Seller to indemnify and hold Buyer harmless for all claims, liability, loss, damage and expense (including, without limitation, any and all collection costs and attorney's fees, expert witness fees, accounting fees and court costs) incurred or sustained by Buyer by reason of any breach of any of such certification, covenant, representation or warranty, and such indemnification obligation of Seller shall survive the acceptance of the goods and payment therefore by the Buyer. In the event that a defect or non-conformance is discovered with any supplied item or service, Seller is required to notify the Buyer of the defect or non-conformance within five (5) days of discovery.

8) Unless the goods ordered hereunder consist of a design furnished by Buyer, Seller agrees to defend, at Seller's expense, Buyer and its customers and users of its products and indemnify and hold them harmless with respect to any and all claims that the products or materials furnished by the Seller (or the design or technology of any such product) under this order infringe upon any patents or other intellectual property rights; and unless a design furnished by Buyer was the sole cause of the relevant damage or claim, Seller will also defend at Seller's expense Buyer and its customers and users of its products, and indemnify and hold them harmless with respect to any and all claims that the products or materials furnished by the Seller (or the design or technology of any such product), are defective or caused injury to person or property, and any and all suits, controversies, demands and liabilities arising out of (or related to) any such claims or damages with respect to such products or materials or the design thereof.
