Terms & Conditions
MAGNA INDUSTRIES INC., Terms and Conditions of Sale. Product(s) have been sold to the Buyer on these Terms and Conditions of Sale. Acceptance: Buyer's action in acceptance of all of the Terms and Conditions set forth by Magna Industries Inc., hereafter referred to as Magna. If any of the Buyer's terms are in conflict with these Terms and Conditions of Sale, the terms of Magna shall govern, unless buyer's terms are accepted in writing by Magna. No verbal agreement or understanding shall in any way modify the Terms and Conditions of sale.
DELIVERY: Unless otherwise specified in writing by Magna, all prices are F.O.B. manufacturers warehouse: Transportation will be by method, route and carrier selected by Magna. All freight charges will be responsibility of the buyer. Magna cannot assume responsibility for collecting any taxes other than New Jersey State tax. Buyer shall bear (or shall reimburse Magna) for all taxes and/or excises or other government charges or levies, Magna shall not be liable for delay in or failure of delivery where delivery has been made impossible or impractical by the occurrence of a contingency such as war, intervening government regulations, civil commotion, riot, disorder, strike or other labor stoppage or difficulty, fire, flood, storm, accident, production failure, raw material shortage, transportation failure or act of God. In any event, Magna may, at its sole discretion allocate products among buyers. Magna's count of goods shipped shall govern except in case of proven error.
DAMAGED MERCHANDISE: Our responsibility for shipment ceases with acceptance by carriers. If any goods called for on the Bill of Lading are short or damaged, do not accept them until the freight agent makes a damage notation on your freight bill. Thoroughly inspect the shipment as soon as received - if any concealed loss or damage is discovered, notify freight agent at once and request an inspection. This is absolutely necessary. Unless you do this, the transportation company will not entertain any claim for loss or damage. If agent will not make an inspection, then you should make an affidavit that you notified him (on a certain date) and he failed to do so. This, with other shipping papers, will properly support your claim.
CLAIMS PROCEDURES: In no event shall Magna be liable on any claim unless written notice of the claim, sent certified mail, return receipt requested, is received by Magna within thirty (30) days after delivery. Failure of Buyer to assert claim within such time shall be deemed a waiver by the buyer of all claims with respect to such products. Buyer shall have the right to reject non-conforming products or to make claim for monetary adjustment, or at Magna's option, to return non-conforming goods and disputed products to Magna but, (1) in no event shall any claim of any kind be greater than the purchase price of the product in respect of which damages are claimed, and (2) in no event may any product be returned to Magna without Magna's prior written consent. Buyer shall afford Magna prompt and reasonable opportunity to inspect all material as to which any claim is made. No claim shall be allowed after the product has been processed in any manner.

Interest shall be charged at the rate of 1.75% per month, or maximum allowed by law, whichever is greater, from the due date on all past due accounts. If, in the judgment of Magna, the financial credit of the Buyer at any time does not justify continuance of production or shipment of the product based on payment terms herein specified, Magna may require full or partial payment prior to completion or shipment.
INDEMNITY: In addition to each and every item and condition herein which refers to some type of indemnity requirement of Buyer in favor of Magna, Buyer shall exculpate, defend indemnity and hold harmless Magna for all losses, damages or liabilities resulting.
