POLY-Pro Terms and Conditions of Sale
All pricing, products and services provided by UVBioTek, LLC ( “UVBIOTEK”) or its representatives to any customer, distributor, original equipment manufacturer, end-user or other Buyer (“Buyer”) are furnished only on the terms and conditions herein (“Terms”). By ordering and accepting delivery of products and/or services (“Products”) from UVBIOTEK, Buyer accepts these Terms and agrees that these Terms, together with the item, quantity, price, and similar terms as confirmed in UVBIOTEK’s written quotation, order acknowledgement and/or invoice, constitute the parties’ entire agreement, superseding all other communications and documentation. UVBIOTEK expressly rejects any different or additional terms, preprinted or otherwise, contained or referenced in any purchase order or other documentation furnished by Buyer, whether before or after delivery of Products, even if receipt thereof is acknowledged by signature or otherwise. No modification of these Terms shall be effective unless set out in a separate negotiated agreement signed by an authorized officer of UVBIOTEK.
Payment and Pricing Terms
The prices quoted on www.mypolyled.com and on www.uvbiotek.com are shown in United States currency and therefore valid only in U.S. currency. Unless otherwise specified by UVBIOTEK in a separate written agreement or quotation, UVBIOTEK’s prices are subject to change at any time without notice. Quotations are valid only for the period stated therein and may be withdrawn at any time prior to acceptance. Quotations to non-U.S. Buyers are solicitations for offers to purchase. Clerical or typographical errors are subject to correction. Quoted prices and delivery dates are valid only for the quantities, terms and payment schedule specified.
Sales tax will be calculated by the ship to and bill to address of the order and will automatically be added onto the order. UVBIOTEK is required by law to charge sales tax (excluding shipping) in the state of New York only. For orders placed outside of the United States, prices do not include any applicable foreign sales, use, excise, value added, goods and services, property, customs, documentary, import/export, or similar taxes, tariffs, fees, duties, or charges pertaining to the Products which, if paid by UVBIOTEK, will be invoiced and paid by Buyer in addition to the Product price unless Buyer provides an exemption certificate acceptable to the applicable taxing authority. Buyer acknowledges its responsibility for reporting the dollar value of any discounts or price reductions in any costs claimed or charges made to Medicare, Medicaid, and any other U.S. or foreign federal, state, or local program providing reimbursement to Buyer.
No transaction fee applies for payments made by credit card at the time of order placement; however, a 4% transaction fee will be charged for credit card payments requested on open invoices for Poly Pro sales. Notwithstanding credit approval, UVBIOTEK reserves the right to modify payment terms or require advance payment, letter of credit, or COD when, in the opinion of UVBIOTEK, Buyer’s financial condition or previous payment record on invoiced POLY Pro sales so warrants. If Buyer is delinquent in any payment due, UVBIOTEK in its discretion may exercise any and all remedies permitted by law, including set off, and may suspend production and/or institute credit hold procedures on all open orders. Future orders will not be confirmed until Buyer’s account is brought current. A service charge not to exceed 1.5% per month may be charged on all past due balances, and if referred to an agent or attorney for collection, all costs and expenses of collection (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) will be charged to Buyer’s account, up to the maximum allowed by law.
Payment terms will not be affected by any delay in delivery, installation or acceptance. Partial shipments are billed as made and payable as set out above.
Leasing Programs may be available for POLY-Pro and certain other products. Call Customer Service for details at 1-800-882-4683.
Orders & Acceptance
Orders must be presented in writing or via electronic means acceptable to UVBIOTEK and will be binding on UVBIOTEK only when accepted by written or electronic acknowledgment. UVBIOTEK reserves the right, at its option and without liability, to refuse any order in whole or in part or to specify an alternate delivery schedule if orders from all sources exceed its inventory or ability to deliver in its normal course of business. UVBIOTEK may allocate available inventory and production in its sole discretion. Where orders are placed, acknowledged, and/or invoiced by electronic transmission, the data transmitted will be deemed “in writing” and “signed;” and any printout of electronic transmissions maintained in the ordinary course will be considered an “original” and admissible as between the parties to the same extent as other business records maintained in documentary form.

The Buyer agrees to use all Products in the manner for which they are intended, which includes following the instruction manual and wearing protective goggles where indicated. Minors are required to use UVBIOTEK Products only under the supervision of a parent or guardian who understands the use of the device and assumes full responsibility for the minor.
Rebates and Discounts

Changes and Cancellations
Any changes requested by Buyer must be submitted in writing and are subject to written acceptance by an authorized representative of UVBIOTEK. Costs and/or delays resulting from such changes will be solely determined by UVBIOTEK and binding on Buyer.

POLY Pro Products are shipped via common carrier with curbside delivery unless prior arrangements are made. Buyer bears all risk and expense for delivery of goods on the shipment of POLY Pro, including without limitation shipping, loading, unloading, storage, freight, and insurance. The freight terms on the POLY Pro are F.O.B Factory, and are either prepaid by the Buyer or added and invoiced to the Buyer in accordance with the Payment Terms outlined above. Title to POLY Pro devices will pass upon issuance of the carrier’s bill of lading (subject to UVBIOTEK’s rights as an unpaid creditor) and, if not previously accepted, receipt of delivery by or on behalf of Buyer will constitute acceptance of these terms. Any shipping contracts made by UVBIOTEK are for Buyer’s account and, if paid for by UVBIOTEK, will be invoiced to Buyer in addition to the product price.
POLY Pro Products will be packaged for shipment in accordance with UVBIOTEK’s standard commercial practices, but UVBIOTEK will not be responsible for loss or damage in transit. Buyer must inspect all POLY Pro items upon arrival and provide written notice to UVBIOTEK, within 5 business days, of any claim for shortage or other nonconformance. If Buyer fails to give timely notice, all POLY Pro products will be deemed to conform to the order and, unless installation is required as provided below, will be deemed accepted. Use or resale of POLY Pro products in any manner after delivery will also constitute acceptance, regardless of whether installation has occurred. Claims for loss or damage to POLY Pro products in transit should be made directly to the delivering carrier and will not affect Buyer’s payment obligations to UVBIOTEK. Buyer’s acceptance of POLY Pro items tendered as provided herein shall be final and irrevocable; any claims by Buyer thereafter must be in accordance with UVBIOTEK’s Warranty, below.
All buyers are required, upon receipt of any shipment, to inspect the packages prior to signing the Bill of Lading (BOL). Any damage should be noted on the Bill of Lading prior to accepting delivery.

Service is defined as the repair, adjustment, or replacement of the affected part. This Limited Warranty is exclusively for the benefit of the Buyer and cannot be transferred or assigned.
The “Warranty Period” for new Products shall be a period of two (2) years from the date of shipping of the Product.

Replacement products or component parts may be either new or refurbished. Such repair or replacement is the exclusive remedy under this Limited Warranty. UVBIOTEK may repair or replace the defective or nonconforming Product or component parts any number of times under this Limited Warranty, but such repairs or replacements shall not affect the duration of the Warranty Period.
