STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions of sale (these “Terms”) are the only terms which govern the sale of goods (“Goods”) and provision of Services (defined below) by SitePro, Inc. (“Company”) to the customer (“Customer”) named in the attached written work order, statement of work or other documentation which references Company’s quotation or proposal by quotation number, job name, proposal name/date, or other common and reasonable identifier signed by each party’s authorized representative (the “Order”). These Terms together with the accompanying Order constitute the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiation, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. The Order and these Terms are collectively referred to herein as the “Agreement.” In the event of any conflict between these Terms and the Order, these Terms shall govern, except to the extent the Order expressly states that the terms and conditions of the Order shall control. These Terms prevail over any of Customer’s general terms and conditions of purchase regardless whether or when Customer has submitted its purchase order or such terms. Fulfillment of Customer’s order does not constitute acceptance of any of Customer’s terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend these Terms.

As specified in the applicable Order, the Services may consist of one or more of the following: (a) installation services (“Installation Services”); and/or (b) professional services (“Professional Services”). In consideration of the Services provided by Company, Customer shall pay the fees for the Services in accordance with the applicable Order and these Terms. For avoidance of doubt, any labor estimates and performance dates specified in the applicable Order are estimates only and are subject to the actual scope of the Services and Customer shall be billed by the Company on the basis of the actual scope of the Services. Customer hereby acknowledges and agrees that in the event the Customer desires to have the Company provide other services offered by the Company such as software as a service (“SaaS Services”) or managed services (“Managed Services” and together with SaaS Services, “Technology Services”), such Technology Services will be governed by the order and terms of services applicable thereto (“Technology Services Terms”).
- Sales of Goods
(a) As specified in the applicable Order, Customer shall purchase the Goods from Company at the prices (the “Prices”) set forth in the Company’s quotation or proposal referenced in the Order; provided, however, if the Company’s Prices for such Goods should increase before delivery of the Goods to a carrier for shipment to Customer, then these Terms shall be construed as if the increased prices were originally inserted herein, and Customer shall be billed by Company on the basis of such increased prices.
(b) As collateral security for the payment of the purchase price of the Goods and for so long as the payment of such purchase price remains outstanding, Customer hereby grants to Company a lien on and security interest in and to all of the right, title and interest of Customer in, to and under the Goods, wherever located, and whether now existing or here after arising or acquired from time to time, and in all accessions thereto and replacements or modifications thereof, as well as all proceeds (including insurance proceeds) of the foregoing. The security interest granted under this provision constitutes a purchase money security interest under the Uniform Commercial Code.
(c) Company shall deliver the Goods within the time identified in the Order or in lieu thereof a reasonable time after the receipt of the Order using Company’s standard methods for packaging and shipping such Goods. Delivery shall be made FOB Company’s Lubbock, Texas facility or such other location as may be designated in the Order.

Each shipment will constitute a separate sale, and Customer shall pay for the Goods shipped whether such shipment is in whole or partial fulfillment of the Order.

Company shall not be liable for any delays, loss or damage in transit.
(d) Customer shall take delivery of the Goods upon the date of Company’s written notice that the Goods have been delivered to the Delivery Point. Customer shall be responsible for all loading costs and provide equipment and labor reasonably suited for receipt of the Goods at the Delivery Point. If for any reason Customer fails to accept delivery of any of the Goods on the date fixed pursuant to Company’s notice that the Goods have been delivered at the Delivery Point, or if Company is unable to deliver the Goods at the Delivery Point on such date because Customer has not provided appropriate instructions, documents, licenses or authorizations: (i) risk of loss to the Goods shall pass to Customer; (ii) the Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered; and (iii) Company, at its option, may store the Goods until Customer picks them up, whereupon Customer shall be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance).
(e) Any liability of Company for non‐delivery of the Goods shall be limited to replacing the Goods within a reasonable time or adjusting the invoice respecting such Goods to reflect the actual quantity delivered. The Company shall not be liable for any non‐delivery of Goods (even if caused by Company’s negligence) unless Customer gives written notice to Company of the non‐delivery within ten (10) days of the date when the Goods would in the ordinary course of events have been received. The quantity of any installment of Goods as recorded by Company on dispatch from Company’s designated shipping point is conclusive evidence of the quantity received by Customer on delivery unless Customer can provide conclusive evidence proving the contrary.
(f) Customer shall inspect the Goods within ten (10) days of receipt (“Inspection Period”). Customer will be deemed to have accepted the Goods unless it notifies Company in writing of any Nonconforming Goods during the Inspection Period and furnishes such written evidence or other documentation as reasonably required by Company. “Nonconforming Goods” means only the following: (i) item shipped is different than identified in Customer’s purchase order; or (ii) item’s label or packaging incorrectly identifies its contents. If Customer timely notifies Company of any Nonconforming Goods, Company shall, in its sole discretion, (x) replace such Nonconforming Goods with conforming Goods, or (y) credit or refund the Price for such Nonconforming Goods, together with any reasonable shipping and handling expenses incurred by Customer in connection therewith. Customer shall ship, at its expense and risk of loss, the Nonconforming Goods to Company’s Lubbock, Texas facility unless Company instructs Customer to direct shipment to another location. If Company exercises its option to replace Nonconforming Goods, Company shall, after receiving Customer’s shipment of Nonconforming Goods, ship to Customer, at Customer’s expense and risk of loss, the replaced Goods to the Delivery Point. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the remedies set forth in this Section 2(f) are Customer’s exclusive remedies for the delivery of Nonconforming Goods. Except as set forth in the Order or under this Section 2(f), all sales of Goods to Customer are made on a one‐way basis and Customer has no right to return Goods purchased under this Agreement to Company.

Promptly after receipt of the written estimate, the parties shall negotiate and agree in writing on the terms of such change (a “Change Order”). Neither party shall be bound by any Change Order unless mutually agreed upon in writing in accordance with these Terms.
