All Orders placed with Koehlke are subject to the Terms of this Agreement, and include the following Terms and Conditions of Sale.

GOVERNING

Any/all quotations and/or sales of Products are exclusively and expressly made on these Terms and those on the front of this document, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Koehlke. A Purchase Order based on a quotation given by Koehlke to a Customer, regardless of the form the Order is on or any conditions set forth within or as an attachment, is bound by the Terms and Conditions of Sale as outlined in this Agreement, which, if applicable, also prevails any terms and conditions deviating from this Agreement. The Terms contained within this Agreement prevail, supersede and make null and void any other additional, different and/or conflicting terms presented by Customer, and any/all such terms proposed by customer are hereby objected to and rejected by Koehlke, even if not explicitly stated.

ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS

All orders are subject to Koehlke's written acceptance. Any acknowledgement of receipt of any document shall not, in and of itself, constitute an acceptance of an order. Customer placement of an order with Koehlke is an offer to purchase the Product(s) listed in the order. Koehlke may decline to accept Customer order in full or in part. No Order is considered accepted by Koehlke until the product is shipped. Acceptance of Orders by Koehlke is subject to credit approval. Koehlke reserves right to modify terms prior to shipment, require payment in advance, or delay/cancel any shipment of an Order if Customer fails to fulfill any obligation when due, or due to lack of Customer's credit worthiness. Any delivery date provided in connection with any order is solely an estimate and does not represent a fixed or guaranteed date of delivery.

PRICING

Koehlke makes every effort to provide current and accurate information relating to Product(s) and Price(s), but does not guarantee the accuracy of any such information. Information relating to Product(s) and/or pricing is subject to change without notice, including at any time prior to acceptance of Customer's Order. Unless otherwise stated in a written quotation by Koehlke, quoted prices are firm for 45 days from the date of the written quotation. If Customer does not purchase the quantity upon which quantity prices are based, Customer will pay the non-discounted price for the quantity actually purchased and/or a cancellation or restocking fee. Prices exclude taxes, freight, handling, duty, or other similar charges, and acceptance of an Order by a Customer equates to acceptance that any taxes and Order-related charges shall be added and are the responsibility of the Customer.

In the event that we discover an error in the material, availability and/or pricing of the Product that affects a Customer's outstanding Order, Koehlke will notify Customer of the corrected information, and Customer may elect to accept the correction or cancel the order. In the event of a correction of information, where the order is cancelled and the Customer's credit card already has been charged for the purchase, Koehlke will issue a credit to the credit card in the amount of the original charge. All prices are in U.S. dollars.
