1. Governing Provisions:

These Terms and conditions (“Terms”) govern the sale of Products (“Products”) by Point One, LLC (“Point One”) to the Buyer (“Buyer”) of the Products. Any quote, order acknowledgment, packing slip, invoice, or other Product documentation or Product specifications from Point One attached to these Terms, together with these Terms, comprise the entire agreement (“Contract”) between the parties with respect to the Products. In the event of conflict between a provision in the Terms and any other component of the Contract, these Terms shall prevail. This Contract supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations, warranties, and communications, both written and oral between the parties with respect to the purchase of Products. No additional or different Terms will be binding upon Point One unless specifically agreed to in writing by an authorized representative of Point One. Any additional or different Terms proposed by Buyer, either previously or in the future, whether in a purchase order, other communication or otherwise, are rejected and shall not apply. Point One’s failure to object to provisions contained in any purchase order or other communication from Buyer shall not be construed as a waiver of these Terms nor an acceptance of any such provisions.  The Buyer acknowledges receipt of this Contract and shall be bound by the Terms of the Contract at the time a purchase order is placed, or at the time Point One provides written or electronic order acknowledgement.

2. Nature of Products:

Point One’s Products may be used in extreme stress applications and installed by persons over whom Point One has no influence or control. Point One therefore requires Buyer, as a condition to purchasing or receiving its Products, to agree to the following exculpatory and indemnification provisions.

Due to the nature of extreme stress applications, all Point One Products are sold without any expressed warranty or any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Point One shall not, under any circumstances, be liable for any special, incidental, or consequential damages, including but not limited to damages or loss of other property or equipment, loss of profits or revenue, cost of purchased or replacement goods, or claims by Buyer or customers of the Buyer which may arise and/or result from the design, manufacturing, sale, distribution, installation, or use of these Products. Under no circumstances shall Point One be liable to Buyer or its agents, employees, representatives, customers, or insurers, for damages caused in whole or in part by the acts or omissions of Buyer or Buyer’s agents, employees, representatives or by any third party. Buyer hereby assumes the risk of any loss, damage, or injury to persons or property resulting from the use or subsequent sale of Point One’s Products, either alone or in combination with other Products.

4. Limitation of Damages: Exclusive Remedy:

Under no circumstances shall Point One’s liability to Buyer or to any other person or entity for any claim based in Contract, tort (including specifically claims that Point One was negligent or grossly negligent and strict liability), breach of warranty or condition, misrepresentation, contribution, indemnity, or other claims at law or in equity, exceed the cost to Buyer of the Products purchased by Buyer.

5. Indemnification of Point One:

Buyer agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Point One, its agents, representatives, employees, and members from all damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses resulting from or relating to any claims, actions, suits, or proceedings in law, equity, or otherwise whether in negligence, tort, Contract, or other theory asserted against Point One, its agents, representatives, employees, and members, relating to or arising from any Products provided by Point One to Buyer or to any of Buyer’s customers, specifically including but not limited to claims that Point One was negligent in the design, manufacture, sale, or distribution of the Products, and for Point One’s reasonable attorney’s fees and litigation expenses reasonably necessary to successfully enforce the provision of this Section against Buyer.
