2. TERMS & CONDITIONS

These terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) and the accompanying Purchase Order govern the purchase from the Supplier of the Items and services set forth in the Purchase Order. A Purchase Order will be deemed to be accepted by the Supplier unless, within seven (7) calendar days after issue, the Supplier notifies Pele in writing that the Supplier rejects the Purchase Order. Any additional or contradictory terms in the Supplier’s acknowledgement or any other terms and conditions issued by the Supplier are void. In the event of any conflict between the Purchase Order’s specific terms and provisions, including any exhibits or documents attached thereto or incorporated by reference therein, and these Terms and Conditions, the Purchase Order shall prevail. The Purchase Order and these Terms and Conditions may not be waived or modified except as specifically set forth and agreed to, in writing, by Pele.

 

3. PRICING AND AUDITS

3.1. The prices set forth in the Purchase Order shall be fixed or declining for the duration of delivery of Items and shall be inclusive of all goods and service taxes, value-added taxes, and other forms of government direct and indirect taxes levied on the provision of or transfer of goods and services, unless specifically agreed otherwise, according to the provisions of clause 2 above.

3.2. The price charged to Pele for any Item shall always be the Supplier’s lowest price charged to any customer for that Item or an equivalent item. If the Supplier sells any Item to any customer at a price less than that set forth herein, the Supplier shall adjust its price to the lower price for any un-invoiced Item and for all future invoices for such Item. For Items designated as custom Items, for the purpose of comparing price under this clause 3, the price of the Item shall include those cost components which are generic to the Item as compared to other similar items generally sold by the Supplier. Such comparison shall be made to the extent Items have similar characteristics, such as form, fit, function, manufacturing process or other specific comparison criteria agreed upon by the parties.

3.3. All applicable taxes, including but not limited to value-added tax and other charges such as duties, customs, tariffs, imposts and government imposed surcharges, shall be stated separately on the Supplier's invoice. The Supplier shall remit all such charges to the appropriate tax authority unless Pele provides sufficient proof of tax exemption. In the event that Pele is prohibited by law from making payments to the Supplier, unless Pele deducts or withholds taxes therefrom and remits such taxes to the local taxing jurisdiction, then Pele shall duly withhold such taxes and shall pay to the Supplier the remaining net amount after the taxes have been withheld. Pele shall not reimburse the Supplier for the amount of such taxes withheld. When Items are delivered within a jurisdiction in which the Supplier collection and remittance of taxes is required by law, the Supplier shall have sole responsibility for payment of such taxes to the appropriate tax authorities. If the Supplier does not collect tax from Pele, and is subsequently audited by any tax authority, Pele's liability will be limited to the amount of the tax assessment, and it shall have no liability to reimburse the Seller for penalty or interest charges. Each party is responsible for its respective income taxes or taxes based upon gross revenues, including but not limited to business and occupation taxes.

3.4. No additional costs, other than those expressly set out in the Purchase Order, shall be reimbursed by Pele without Pele’s prior written approval.

3.5. Pele reserves the right to have the Supplier's records inspected and audited to ensure compliance with these Terms and Conditions. At Pele’s option or upon the Supplier's written demand, such audit will be performed by an independent third party at Pele's expense. However, if the Supplier is found to be in breach of these Terms and Conditions, the Supplier shall reimburse Pele for all costs associated with the audit, along with any discrepancies discovered, within thirty (30) days after completion of the audit. The results of such audit shall be kept confidential by the auditor and if conducted by a third party, only the Supplier’s failures to comply with these Terms and Conditions shall be notified to Pele.

 

4. INVOICING AND PAYMENT

4.1. Subject to clauses 8.2 and 8.3, and the Item complying with the Item Produce Warranty, the Supplier shall submit an invoice to Pele, which shall include a Purchase Order number, line Item number, list of Items delivered (and delivery dates), complete bill to address, description of incidental Items, quantities, unit price, extended totals and any applicable taxes or other charges. The Supplier shall not send an invoice to Pele before an Item is shipped per the terms stated in Pele’s Purchase Order. Where applicable, all invoices shall be prepared as valid VAT invoices properly addressed to Pele.

4.2. Subject to clause 4.3, Pele will make payment in respect of an invoice ninety (90) days after the later of: (i) receipt of the properly completed original invoice, and (ii) delivery of the Item per the terms stated in Pele’s Purchase Order. Pele may, at its option, make payment in respect of an invoice within sixty (60) days of the later of: (i) receipt of the properly completed original invoice, and (ii) delivery of the Item per the terms stated in Pele’s Purchase Order, in which case it shall be entitled to receive a discount of two percent (2%) of the amount that would otherwise be due in respect of the invoice. Payment is made when Pele's electronic funds transfer is initiated. No payment by Pele shall constitute acceptance of an Item.

4.3. Pele is not obliged to make payment, and the Supplier hereby waives any right to seek or request payment, in respect of any invoice submitted one hundred (180) days or more after delivery of an Item per the terms stated in Pele’s Purchase Order.

4.4. Pele may at any time, without limiting any of its other rights or remedies, set off any liability of the Supplier to Pele against any liability of Pele to the Supplier, whether either liability is present or future, liquidated or unliquidated, and whether or not either liability arises under these Terms and Conditions.

4.5. The Supplier shall be responsible for, and shall indemnify and hold Pele harmless against, any and all payments to the Supplier’s vendors or subcontractors utilised in the performance of any services related to the Items.

 

5. TERMINATION

5.1. Pele may terminate any Purchase Order or Release issued, or any part thereof, at any time without cause by giving thirty (30) days written notice of termination to the Supplier. Upon the Supplier’s receipt of such notice, the Supplier shall, unless otherwise specified in such notice, immediately stop all work previously authorised and promptly cease, and procure that its suppliers and subcontractors cease, all related work.

5.2. There shall be no termination charges for Items not yet delivered at the date of termination. Pele will be responsible for payment for all authorised Items delivered to Pele by the Supplier prior to the date of termination but not yet invoiced. Upon payment of the Supplier’s invoice properly prepared in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, Pele shall be entitled to all work and materials paid for.

If the Supplier cannot comply with the delivery date(s) stated in the Release, the Supplier shall immediately notify Pele in writing. Pele may request expedited transportation service for all affected Items at the Supplier’s sole expense as reasonably necessary to accommodate Pele’s obligations to third parties with respect to such affected Items. In addition, if any Item is not delivered on the date(s) stated in the Release, the Supplier will pay, from the first calendar day following the stated delivery date(s) as stated in the Release, liquidated damages at a daily rate of 0.2% of the price of such late Item until such Item is delivered. The parties agree that such liquidated damages are reasonable and a genuine pre-estimate of the loss that Pele will suffer in the event of delay in delivery. In the event that the liquidated damages is challenged as a penalty, Pele may pursue the Supplier for general damages in respect of the delay in delivery.

7.2. Pele may suspend any portion of a Release by written notice which shall take effect immediately upon receipt by the Supplier. The Supplier will, at its cost, store all Items affected by a suspended Release. Suspended Releases will be re-scheduled or terminated by Pele in accordance with clause 5 within a reasonable time.

7.3. Any forecasts provided by Pele are for planning purposes only and do not constitute a Release or other commitment by Pele.
