THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE (“TERMS”) SHALL APPLY TO ALL SALES OF FLEXTRONICS LIGHTING SOLUTIONS (hereinafter FLS) PRODUCTS (“EQUIPMENT”). UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFICALLY AGREED IN WRITING BY AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF FLS, ANY DIFFERENT OR ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS PROPOSED BY ANY PURCHASER IN A PURCHASE ORDER, RESPONSE TO A QUOTATION OR OTHER PROPOSAL, ARE HEREBY REJECTED BY FLS AND SHALL NOT BE INCORPORATED INTO ANY AGREEMENT FOR SALE OF EQUIPMENT. PURCHASER’S ASSENT TO THESE TERMS SHALL BE CONCLUSIVELY PRESUMED FROM PURCHASER’S ORDERING EQUIPMENT QUOTED BY FLS, PURCHASER’S FAILURE TO OBJECT IN WRITING TO THESE TERMS, AND/OR PURCHASER’S ACCEPTANCE OF ALL OR PART OF ANY EQUIPMENT ORDERED. IF FLS IS FOUND TO HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED PURCHASER’S ORDER OR PROPOSAL, AND SUCH ACKNOWLEDGMENT CONSTITUTES AN ACCEPTANCE OF AN OFFER, SUCH ACCEPTANCE IS EXPRESSLY MADE CONDITIONAL ON PURCHASER’S ASSENT SOLELY TO THESE TERMS WHICH SHALL FORM PART OF THE ACKNOWLEDGMENT, AND ACCEPTANCE BY PURCHASER OF ANY EQUIPMENT SHALL BE DEEMED TO CONSTITUTE SUCH ASSENT. IF ANY QUOTATION OR OTHER DOCUMENT OF FLS IS DEEMED TO CONSTITUTE AN OFFER TO PURCHASER, PURCHASER’S ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH OFFER IS LIMITED TO THESE TERMS.
FLS price sheets and quotations are not offers to sell, and possession of a price sheet or quotation does not entitle one to purchase. FLS shall not be bound to sell any Equipment unless it shall (in its sole discretion) accept submitted purchase orders. Orders for standard catalog Equipment may be canceled by the Purchaser up to 24 hours after Purchase Order receipt acknowledgment. Orders for standard catalog Equipment cancelled after the 24 hour grace period will be subject to a handling/restocking charge up to 25% in accordance with Section 8 below. Orders for custom-made Equipment may not be canceled by the Purchaser unless such cancellation is approved in writing by FLS, in which case Purchaser shall reimburse FLS for all work already performed and for special material purchased by FLS. If an order is canceled after shipment or if delivery is refused at destination, all warehousing, delivery, disposition and return costs will be charged to the Purchaser, and Purchaser also shall be liable for, and shall promptly pay to FLS, the full purchase price of the Equipment.
2. Shipment and Delivery Terms

Purchaser shall notify FLS in writing at least 5 calendar days (for domestic US shipments) and 15 calendar days (for international shipments) prior to the scheduled shipping date of special or alternative shipping instructions. Based on Purchaser request, FLS may ship (i) via ground shipment (domestic) and air or sea freight (international), (ii) via carrier selected by FLS, and (iii) utilizing the carrier’s standard insurance coverage up to the invoice value of the Equipment being shipped. If Purchaser elects to handle its own shipping, Purchaser shall be solely responsible for making all arrangements for pickup on a timely basis.
(b) In the event that Purchaser elects to handle its own shipping, FLS shall deliver the products EXW FLS’ facility. FLS will not be responsible for storage charges or cartage charges beyond the destination address acknowledged by FLS.

All shipping and FLS’s standard handling charges are added to the final invoice or to progress invoices if there are multiple shipments.
4. Payment Terms
Unless otherwise noted, the default payment terms are net 30 calendar days from invoice date. All accounts shall be paid in U.S. Dollars (unless specifically agreed otherwise by FLS) to in accordance with the payment terms specified in the quotation and/or listed on FLS’s invoice. All payment amounts are net of applicable fees. FLS reserves the right to not ship Equipment, and/or to not put an order for customer Equipment into production, until receipt of an initial deposit, which may be specified on an FLS quotation or order acceptance. Credit references may be requested by FLS, and if, in the judgment of FLS, the financial condition of Purchaser at the time Equipment is ready for shipment does not justify the terms of payment specified, FLS may at its sole discretion require either full or partial payment before accepting an order. An interest charge of 1.5% per month of the unpaid balance will be added starting from invoice past due date. A Warranty claim shall not affect payment terms. If FLS refers a claim for payment to an attorney or agent for collection or pursues any other collection remedies, Purchaser shall pay all associated costs and attorney’s fees, including all costs associated with the filing of liens and other legal actions.
5. Delivery and Delay
Shipping dates are approximate and are based on conditions existing at the time of FLS’s receipt of the Purchaser’s firm order and full information. FLS will use commercially reasonable efforts to ship by the estimated shipping date but it shall not be responsible for any delay or any damage arising from a delay. Delivery dates in no event shall be construed as falling within the meaning “time is of the essence.” In addition, FLS shall not be liable for any damages, loss or delay due to war, riots, fire, flood, strikes or other labor difficulty, acts of civil or military authority including governmental laws, orders, priorities or regulations, acts of the Purchaser, embargo, shortage of transportation facilities or delay in transportation, or inability to obtain necessary labor or materials from usual sources, other contingencies of manufacture or shipment, or other causes beyond the reasonable control of FLS. In the event of delay in performance due to any such cause, the date of delivery or time for completion will be adjusted to reflect the actual length of time lost by reason of such delay. Purchaser’s receipt of Equipment shall constitute a waiver of any claims for delay. FLS will use all reasonable efforts to comply with Purchaser’s request as to method of shipment, but FLS reserves the right to use an alternate method of transportation or route of shipment if substantial delay might otherwise occur. In such cases FLS will notify Purchaser of such changes as soon as reasonably possible. If the Purchaser declines or is unable to take delivery at the time(s) specified, FLS will have the Equipment stored for Purchaser’s risk and account, and the Equipment shall be considered “shipped” and the final invoice shall be issued and due.
The price does not include any present or future federal, state, national or local property, license, privilege, sales, use, VAT, GST, gross receipt, withholding or other excise, transportation, occupational, like taxes or assessments, or duties or import/export fees or charges, which may be applicable to, measured by, imposed upon or result from this transaction or any services performed in connection therewith. Any such taxes or charges itemized separately to Purchaser on FLS’s quotation, order acknowledgment or invoice shall be paid promptly to FLS. In addition, Purchaser shall reimburse FLS and hold FLS harmless for all such duties, taxes and charges which FLS is required to collect or remit to applicable customs and tax authorities (including any interest or penalties thereon), whether prior to or following shipment. All other duties and taxes incurred by the Purchaser as a result of the purchase of the Equipment or otherwise through performance of the contract shall be the Purchaser’s responsibility to pay directly to the proper customs and taxing authority. FLS will accept a valid exemption certificate from Purchaser, if applicable; provided, however, that evidence of Purchaser’s tax exemption status must be provided to FLS prior to shipment.
FLS reserves the right to discontinue items, modify designs, substitute materials and change specifications and/or dimensions without notice and without incurring any liability. FLS in no way, express or implied, accepts responsibility for selection of input voltage. Unless specifically agreed by FLS in writing, it does not warrant compliance of Equipment with Purchaser’s individual project specifications.
8. Returned Merchandise

Unless otherwise noted, RMA’s must be requested within 45 calendar days from original date of shipment of the Equipment, and are valid for 30 calendar days from date of issue. Except with respect to non-conforming Equipment as to which a Warranty claim is being made, all returned Equipment must be in re-saleable condition and in its original sealed packaging in order to qualify for a credit. Any applicable credit shall be issued based on the original invoice price, or price in effect at the time of return, whichever is lower, less a minimum handling/restocking charge of 25%.

12. Patents; Trademarks; Copyright and License Notice
FLS retains all proprietary rights in and to all intellectual property, including designs, engineering details and other data and information pertaining to all products sold hereunder, except to the extent rights are expressly granted under a separate written license agreement signed by an authorized legal or business representative of FLS. Whether or not covered by a registration or application, all FLS patents, trademarks, trade secrets, know-how, domain names, copyrights, trade names and/or logos associated with FLS products and services or with FLS business are the sole property of FLS. Unless otherwise specified, all materials containing logos, graphics, marks, icons and images associated with or of FLS, as well as the selection, assembly, and arrangement thereof, are the sole property of FLS or the companies it represents.

FLS may provide commissioning or engineering services in connection with the Equipment pursuant to a services order accepted by FLS. All services will be provided at FLS’s then current rates and will be invoiced and paid on a monthly basis unless mutually agreed otherwise in writing. Any control programs developed by FLS pursuant to programming services constitute FLS’s proprietary property and will be owned by FLS and licensed to Purchaser in perpetuity for Purchaser’s use solely in conjunction with the Equipment and control system. FLS warrants that the services will be performed in a professional workmanlike manner. Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy, and FLS’s sole and exclusive liability for any breach of this service warranty is re-performance of such FLS services, as necessary. Purchaser must notify FLS of the breach within 30 calendar days of the service. The service warranty does not include any travel expenses incurred by FLS which will be invoiced monthly. In no event shall FLS be liable for indirect, special, incidental, punitive or consequential loss or damages of any kind, however caused, or any punitive, exemplary or other damages whatsoever based in contract, warranty, tort or otherwise. No action arising out of or in anyway connected with the servicesfurnished by FLS may be brought by Purchaser.
14. Limited Warranty
Equipment is tested and proven to be operational at the time of manufacture by FLS. Provided the Equipment is installed and operated in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations and compliant with applicable codes, under intended use and normal conditions of use, FLS warrants that its Equipment will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of five (5) years from date of shipment of the Equipment (the “Warranty Period”); provided Purchaser must notify FLS within 30 calendar days of discovery of the defect or failure and within the Warranty Period. Purchaser may elect to purchase an extended warranty for up to a maximum of an additional five (5) years for a total of ten (10) years from date of shipment (the “Extended Warranty”) at the amounts quoted by FLS. The Standard Warranty is included by default in the price of the Equipment as set forth in the quote. If Purchaser desires to purchase an Extended Warranty, Purchaser must identify the Extended Warranty as a separate line item on its purchase order at the amount set forth in the quote provided by FLS and any Extended Warranty shall not be agreed upon until accepted in writing by Flextronics. The Standard Warranty and Extended Warranty are hereinafter referred to, as applicable in accordance with the warranty Purchaser has purchased, as the “Warranty.”
The LED arrays in the Equipment will be considered defective in material or workmanship only if a total of 10% or more of the individual light emitting diodes in the Equipment fail to illuminate. Except as otherwise set forth herein, FLS does not warrant battery packs, photocells, occupancy sensors, surge protection devices, wireless controllers, and other third party devices that are not manufactured by FLS, which are covered by the applicable third party manufacturer warranty (if any). Such third party manufacturer shall be solely responsible for the costs related to any claims associated with any such devices. Emergency battery back-ups will be considered defective only if it fails to perform for a full 90 minutes. For avoidance of doubt, the repair of FLS products (such as replacement of parts/components in FLS products) does not modify or extend the Warranty Period.
The Equipment will be considered defective in material or workmanship if light output fails to be within 70% of initial output as stated on the data sheet at the time of purchase within the first 5 years of operation, including tolerances (not applicable to extended warranties).
Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy for breach of the Warranty is as follows: Equipment determined to be defective by FLS within the Warranty Period will be repaired or replaced with the same or functionally equivalent Replacement Equipment at FLS’s sole discretion and option at its factory service center at no cost to Purchaser. The Warranty applies only to the original Purchaser and is not transferable or assignable. Under the circumstance where Replacement Equipment is required, a Return Materials Authorization (RMA) must be requested in writing by the Purchaser. Purchaser is responsible to provide full catalog or item numbers, original purchase order number and original invoice numbers in order to process any RMA request. RMA will be issued at the sole discretion of FLS. If Purchaser fail to ship the Returned Equipment and provide tracking number to FLS within 30 calendar days after the issuance of the RMA, Purchaser will deemed to have purchased the Replacement Equipment and payable under the Standard Payment Terms.
All warranties are void without full payment to the original invoice, including full payment of collection costs as described in Section 4 (Payment Terms) above. The Warranty does not cover, and FLS will not be liable for, any conditions, defect or damage attributable to (1) misuse, inadequate or faulty installation, misapplication, mishandling, abuse, neglect, improper storage or maintenance, operation outside of specified ambient temperature range, extreme environmental conditions, failure to comply with any applicable product classifications or certifications, standards, codes, recommendations, maintenance, product specification sheets or instructions , improper or inadequate maintenance, accident, or tampering; (2) the incompatibility, improper design, manufacture, installation, operation or maintenance of products, components, accessories, equipment or materials not supplied by FLS; (3) problems resulting from external causes such as accident, abuse, misuse, mishandling, negligence or fault of Purchaser and/or any third party who is not a certified electrician or an authorized FLS repair personnel, fire, theft, vandalism, riot, explosion, natural disaster, insect or animal activity, induced vibration, external causes unrelated to product defect, or any other occurrences outside of FLS’ control; (4) problems caused by normal wear and tear, for instance, polycarbonate and acrylic materials used in the Equipment are not warranted against yellowing which may naturally occur over time due to normal aging; (5) alterations, combinations, modifications or repairs made to the Equipment or associated wiring by Purchaser or third party who is not a certified electrician or an authorized FLS repair personnel ; (6) structural defects in or damage to any property; (7) the purchase of Equipment and/or components from an unauthorized reseller or distributor; (8) removal, alteration or destruction of the product data tag or any other product identifiers; (9) use or exposure of Equipment to hazardous conditions or put in an environment that is unexpected, unsafe or dangerous(10) Equipment for which FLS has not yet received full payment; (11) use of harsh or reactive chemicals or agents to clean or maintain the Equipment; and (12) abnormal use or stress, including operating the Equipment outside the specified temperature, voltage, and current ranges, improper power supply, power surges or dips, and excessive switching.
For products not bearing the FLS name, logo or certification, FLS makes no warranty of any kind, express or implied, including without limitation, any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Purchaser’s use of, modification, or combination of the Equipment with products, processes, materials, components supplied, manufactured or distributed by a third party voids the warranty. FLS is not responsible or liable for any costs resulting from use or improper installation of a third party’s products, failure of third party supplied products, or failures of Equipment resulting from the use of a third party supplied product. The third party is solely responsible for any costs, expenses, and service fees related to any claims associated with its products.
The above warranty does not apply to the quality of the installation of the Equipment by the installer of such Equipment. For example, the above warranties would not cover problems resulting from an installer’s installation methods and procedures. Installers are neither Flextronics Lighting Solution’s employees nor agents and such installers do not have the authority to alter or extend the above warranties. Further, (a) the above warranty does not include FLS’s responsibility for or cover reimbursement for any expenses of labor, transportation, materials, rentals or rework related to or arising from the installation, removal or reinstallation of the Equipment, (b) the above warranty does not include or cover any travel expenses incurred by FLS in connection with inspecting and evaluating any warranty claim at Purchaser’s facility, and (c) FLS’s liability and responsibility for warranty defects is limited solely to repair or replacement as set forth above and is in any event limited to the purchase price of the specific Equipment item for which the warranty claim is being made. FLS advises Purchasers to pay particular attention to installation and protection of the controllers for FLS’s products. These components are easily damaged by environmental conditions and must be adequately protected by proper installation by a certified electrician or FLS repair personnel. No guaranty or warranty by FLS extends to control units which have been, in FLS’s sole opinion, improperly installed.
Purchaser must keep adequate records of operating history, maintenance, installation, testing, and/or proof of purchase to be available for inspection by FLS to qualify for the warranty. If a product is returned for repair or replacement, Purchaser must comply with the applicable Returned Merchandise provisions as set forth above in the Section 14 (Limited Warranty). Sufficient packing materials must be used to avoid damage to the Equipment being returned while in transit. FLS reserves the right to repair or replace at its discretion. FLS assumes no responsibility or liability for expenses incurred for the troubleshooting, removal and/or installation of products requiring service and/or repair, nor for the handling of products returned to sender after the service has been rendered. FLS does not repair or replace in the field.
FLS MAKES NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, WHETHER ARISING BY COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE TRADE OR OTHERWISE IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF FITNESS OR MERCHANTABILITY, WITH RESPECT TO THIS PRODUCT.
No agent, distributor or representative or employee of FLS or any other person, other than an authorized officer of FLS, is authorized to give any additional warranty on behalf of FLS. Any technical advice, recommendations, samples, and/or demonstrations provided by FLS concerning the use, application, or compatibility of any products or materials are provided by FLS for the purpose of assisting the Purchaser to evaluate, at its own risk, the suitability of products for the Purchaser’s intended use and may not be construed as an express or implied warranty. FLS does not warrant the accuracy of and results from any recommendations or suggestions resulting from any engineering analysis or study.
