Updated January 2018
Unless otherwise varied by mutual written agreement, the following terms and conditions shall govern any products or services purchased by Customer from ALI:
Unless otherwise stated on the invoice, invoices shall be due and payable in full thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice. A finance charge of 1.5% per month (or the maximum allowed by law) will be assessed each month on any delinquent unpaid balance and will be billed monthly. Customer is obligated to pay any portion of an invoice not in dispute within the 30 day term, but does not have to pay any amount in dispute during the time that ALI is resolving the dispute. All disputed invoices must be reported by Customer to ALI in writing within 10 days of the date of the invoice. In addition to any purchase price specified herein, Customer shall pay the gross amount of any present or future sales, use, excise, value added or other similar tax applicable to the price or sale of any products, parts or services furnished by ALI hereunder or to Customer’s use or Customer shall furnish ALI with a tax-exemption certificate acceptable to the taxing authorities. A 3% service charge will be applied in addition to the total amount invoiced for all payments processed using a credit card.
ORDER CANCELLATION, RETURN POLICY
If Customer places a product order with ALI and then elects to cancel the order before the product is shipped, Customer shall pay any cancellation charges assessed against ALI by either the product manufacturer or distributor. Items purchased from ALI including, but not limited to, personal computers, other hardware, software and consumable items, may be returned within seven (7) days from the date of invoice for refund, exchange or replacement: (i) provided the items have not been damaged or opened; (ii) if such return is permitted by the product manufacturer or distributor who provided the product to ALI; and (iii) subject to and in accordance with the terms of the product manufacturer or distributor’s return policy. Customer must provide a copy of the invoice for proof of purchase and all items must be returned in their original shipping boxes and with the original packing material. Customer shall pay all “restocking fees” charged by the manufacturer or the distributor as well as all shipping and handling charges to return the Product to the manufacturer or distributor; ALI reserves the right to reduce the credit amount issued to the Customer for these and other expenses incurred by ALI for the product returns. “Special Orders” may not be returned. Except for products returned by Customer under the seven (7) day return policy set forth above, ALI reserves the right to refuse return of any item for any reason including, without limitation, when ALI determines that the item has been damaged or abused.
If Customer has failed to pay or perform any obligation (or has repudiated any obligation) when first due, ALI shall be entitled to suspend further shipments, deliveries and performance in addition to using any other remedies available to ALI. ALI retains a right of possession (without legal process) and security title interest in any product purchased from ALI and will retain such right and security interest until payment in cash for the products has been made in full. Customer agrees that ALI may and Customer shall do all acts necessary to perfect and maintain such right and security title in ALI. It is the intent of the parties that the products delivered hereunder shall remain personal property until all payments have been made in full. The Customer further agrees that, upon Customer’s failure to make payments when due, ALI may, without any demand, notice or process of law, take possession of the products. Repossession is herein provided for but shall not be considered a waiver of ALI’s right to bring an action to enforce payment of the purchase price nor shall any action by ALI to recover any balance due on the purchase price be considered a waiver of ALI’s right to repossess the products. To the extent allowed by law, Customer waives its homestead exemption and all other exemptions as to its obligations contained herein. Customer agrees to pay all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by ALI to enforce its remedies or collect amounts owed to ALI by Customer.
