InkjetSuperstore.com Safe Shopping Guarantee
We help ensure your protection by offering a safe shopping guarantee. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your credit card bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50 in unauthorized or fraudulent charges. InkjetSuperstore.com will cover the amount for which you are held liable up to the full $50 if the fraudulent transaction resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at InkjetSuperstore.com using our secure server. InkjetSuperstore.com also requires that you have followed all rules and procedures of your credit card provider relating to fraudulent and authorized use.
Order Information Privacy and Credit Card Security
We currently use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to safeguard your information, including your credit card number, during online transactions. None of the tens of thousands of people, who have made purchases through InkjetSuperstore.com's Website using SSL, have reported to us fraudulent use of their credit card as a result of their online order. We believe SSL to be a very safe encryption method, but we are always looking for even more secure encryption methods to safeguard information sent online. Our server will run detection software to help ensure you are using a secure browser and your information is secure when you check out. If our browser determines you are not using a secure browser, a message will appear at checkout.
To protect your information once your transaction is complete, InkjetSuperstore.com stores your information on an off-line server stored securely behind our firewall. There is no external access to this information and its internal access is strictly monitored.
For your protection, never put your credit card number or other sensitive information in unencrypted e-mail. In the extremely unlikely event that we ever do suspect a customer's credit card number has been intercepted, we will immediately notify the customer.
The following are IJSS Inc. (dba, TonerZone.com, InkjetSuperstore.com) Corporation's standard terms and conditions, which shall apply to all future Purchase Orders, unless we have entered into a separate written agreement. Please retain a copy for your files, unless otherwise notified to the contrary. These terms and conditions do not take precedence over any existing IJSS Inc. contract.
All Purchase Orders will be transmitted to you via email or fax, and will reference this set of standard terms and conditions.
IJSS Inc. Inc. requires a Purchase Order to be issued in order to commit and pay for delivery of product and/or service. Invoices submitted to Accounts Payable without a Purchase Order number referenced will be returned to the supplier unpaid by the Accounts Payable department. Please insist on obtaining a Purchase Order for any purchase made by IJSS Inc. prior to delivering goods or services. IJSS Inc. wishes to pay all its vendors on time, but needs your assistance to do so.
As used herein, "Seller" includes Seller, its subsidiaries and affiliates; "IJSS Inc." includes IJSS Inc. (dba, TonerZone.com, InkjetSuperstore.com) Corporation and its subsidiaries and affiliates. Seller and IJSS Inc. hereby agree as follows:
1. Services & Deliverables
Seller agrees to perform the services ("Services") and/or provide the goods or Service deliverables (collectively referred to as "Goods"), described in any purchase order, in accordance with the applicable purchase order, scope of work and with these Terms and Conditions ("Agreement"). Upon acceptance of a purchase order, shipment of Goods or commencement of a Service, Seller shall be bound by the provisions of this Agreement, including all provisions set forth on the face of any applicable purchase order, whether Seller acknowledges or otherwise signs this Agreement or the purchase order, unless Seller objects to such terms in writing prior to shipping Goods or commencing Services.
This writing does not constitute a firm offer within the meaning of Section 2205 of the California Commercial Code, and may be revoked at any time prior to acceptance. This Agreement may not be added to, modified, superseded or otherwise altered, except by writing signed by an authorized IJSS Inc. representative. Any terms or conditions contained in any acknowledgment, invoice or other communication of Seller, which are inconsistent with the terms and conditions herein, are hereby rejected. To the extent that this Agreement might be treated as an acceptance of Seller's prior offer, such acceptance is expressly made on condition of assent by Seller to the terms hereof and shipment of the Goods or beginning performance of any Services by Seller shall constitute such assent. IJSS Inc. hereby reserves the right to reschedule any delivery or cancel any purchase order issued at any time prior to shipment of the Goods or prior to commencement of any Services. IJSS Inc. shall not be subject to any charges or other fees as a result of such cancellation.
Time is of the essence. Delivery of Goods shall be made pursuant to the schedule, via the carrier and to the place specified on the face of the applicable purchase order. IJSS Inc. reserves the right to return, shipping charges collect, all Goods received in advance of the delivery schedule. If no delivery schedule is specified, the order shall be filled promptly and delivery will be made by the most expeditious form of land transportation. If no method of shipment is specified in the purchase order, Seller shall use the least expensive carrier. In the event Seller fails to deliver the Goods within the time specified, IJSS Inc. may, at its option, decline to accept the Goods and terminate the Agreement or may demand its allocable fair share of Seller's available Goods and terminate the balance of the Agreement. Seller shall package all items in suitable containers to permit safe transportation and handling. Each delivered container must be labeled and marked to identify contents without opening and all boxes and packages must contain packing sheets listing contents. IJSS Inc.'s purchase order number must appear on all shipping containers, packing sheets, delivery tickets and bills of lading.
3. Identification, risk of loss & destruction of goods
Identification of the Goods shall occur in accordance with Section 2501 of the California Commercial Code. Seller assumes all risk of loss until receipt by IJSS Inc.. Title to the Goods shall pass to IJSS Inc. upon receipt by it of the Goods at the designated destination. If the Goods ordered are destroyed prior to title passing to IJSS Inc., IJSS Inc. may at its option cancel the Agreement or require delivery of substitute Goods of equal quantity and quality. Such delivery will be made as soon as commercially practicable. If loss of Goods is partial, IJSS Inc. shall have the right to require delivery of the Goods not destroyed.
As full consideration for the performance of the Services, delivery of the Goods and the assignment of rights to IJSS Inc. as provided herein, IJSS Inc. shall pay Seller (i) the amount agreed upon and specified in the applicable purchase order, or (ii) Seller's quoted price on date of shipment (for Goods), or the date Services were started (for Services), whichever is lower. Applicable taxes and other charges such as shipping costs, duties, customs, tariffs, imposts and government imposed surcharges shall be stated separately on Seller's invoice. Payment is made when IJSS Inc.'s check is mailed. Payment shall not constitute acceptance. All personal property taxes assessable upon the Goods prior to receipt by IJSS Inc. of Goods conforming to the purchase order shall be borne by Seller. Seller shall invoice IJSS Inc. for all Goods delivered and all Services actually performed. Each invoice submitted by Seller must be provided to IJSS Inc. within ninety (60) days of completion of the Services or delivery of Goods and must reference the applicable purchase order, and IJSS Inc. reserves the right to return all incorrect invoices. IJSS Inc. will receive a 5% discount of the invoiced amount for all invoices that are submitted more than ninety (60) days after completion of the Services or delivery of the Goods. Unless otherwise specified on the face of a purchase order, IJSS Inc. shall pay the invoiced amount within sixty (60) days after receipt of a correct invoice. Seller will receive no royalty or other remuneration on the production or distribution of any products developed by IJSS Inc. or Seller in connection with or based on the Goods or Services provided.
5.1 Services: Seller represents and warrants that all Services shall be completed in a professional, workmanlike manner, with the degree of skill and care that is required by current, good and sound professional procedures. Further, Seller represents and warrants that the Services shall be completed in accordance with applicable specifications and shall be correct and appropriate for the purposes contemplated in this Agreement. Seller represents and warrants that the performance of Services under this Agreement will not conflict with, or be prohibited in any way by, any other agreement or statutory restriction to which Seller is bound.
5.2 Goods: Seller warrants that all Goods delivered shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship and shall conform to all applicable specifications for a period of fifteen (15) months from the date of delivery to IJSS Inc. or for the period provided in Seller's standard warranty covering the Goods, whichever is longer. Seller hereby agrees that it will make spare parts available to IJSS Inc. for a period of five (2) years from the date of shipment at Sellers then current price, less applicable discounts. Additionally, Goods purchased shall be subject to all written and oral express warranties made by Seller's agents, and to all warranties provided for by the California Commercial Code. All warranties shall be construed as conditions as well as warranties and shall not be exclusive. Seller shall furnish to IJSS Inc. Seller's standard warranty and service guaranty applicable to the Goods. All warranties and Service guaranties shall run both to IJSS Inc. and to its customers.
If IJSS Inc. identifies a warranty problem with the Goods during the warranty period, IJSS Inc. will promptly notify Seller of such problems and will return the Goods to Seller, at Seller's expense. Within five (10) business days of receipt of the returned Goods, Seller shall, at IJSS Inc.'s option, either repair or replace such Goods, or credit IJSS Inc.'s account for the same. Replacement and repaired Goods shall be warranted for the remainder of the warranty period or six (6) months, whichever is longer.
IJSS Inc. shall have a reasonable time after receipt of Goods or Service deliverables and before payment to inspect them for conformity hereto, and Goods received prior to inspection shall not be deemed accepted until IJSS Inc. has run an adequate test to determine whether the Goods conform to the specifications hereof. Use of a portion of the Goods for the purpose of testing shall not constitute an acceptance of the Goods. If Goods tendered do not wholly conform with the provisions hereof, IJSS Inc. shall have the right to reject such Goods. Nonconforming Goods will be returned to Seller freight collect and risk of loss will pass to Seller upon IJSS Inc.'s delivery to the common carrier.
7. Independent contractor
IJSS Inc. is interested only in the results obtained under this Agreement; the manner and means of achieving the results are subject to Seller's sole control. Seller is an independent contractor for all purposes, without express or implied authority to bind IJSS Inc. by contract or otherwise. Neither Seller nor its employees, agents or subcontractors ("Seller's Assistants") are agents or employees of IJSS Inc., and therefore are not entitled to any employee benefits of IJSS Inc., including but not limited to, any type of insurance. Seller shall be responsible for all costs and expenses incident to performing its obligations under this Agreement and shall provide Seller's own supplies and equipment.
8. Seller responsible for taxes and records
Seller shall be solely responsible for filing the appropriate federal, state and local tax forms, including, without limitation, a Schedule C or a Form 1020, and paying all such taxes or fees, including estimated taxes and employment taxes, due with respect to Seller's receipt of payment under this Agreement. Seller further agrees to provide IJSS Inc. with reasonable assistance in the event of a government audit. IJSS Inc. shall have no responsibility to pay or withhold from any payment to Seller under this Agreement, any federal, state or local taxes or fees. IJSS Inc. will regularly report amounts paid to Seller by filing Form 1099-MISC with the Internal Revenue Service.
Seller shall be solely responsible for maintaining and requiring Seller's Assistants to maintain such adequate health, auto, workers' compensation, unemployment compensation, disability, liability, and other insurance, as is required by law or as is the common practice in Seller's and Seller's Assistants' trades or businesses, whichever affords greater coverage. Upon request, Seller shall provide IJSS Inc. with certificates of insurance or evidence of coverage before commencing performance under this Agreement. Seller shall provide adequate coverage for any IJSS Inc. property under the care, custody or control of Seller or Seller's Assistants.
Seller shall indemnify, hold harmless, and at IJSS Inc.'s request, defend IJSS Inc., its officers, directors, customers, agents and employees, against all claims, liabilities, damages, losses and expenses, including attorneys' fees and cost of suit arising out of or in any way connected with the Goods or Services provided under this Agreement, including, without limitation, (i) any claim based on the death or bodily injury to any person, destruction or damage to property, or contamination of the environment and any associated clean up costs, (ii) Seller failing to satisfy the Internal Revenue Service's guidelines for an independent contractor, (iii) any claim based on the negligence, omissions or willful misconduct of Seller or any Seller's Assistants, and (iv) any claim by a third party against IJSS Inc. alleging that the Goods or Services, the results of such Services, or any other products or processes provided under this Agreement, infringe a patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary right of a third party, whether such are provided alone or in combination with other products, software or processes. Seller shall not settle any such suit or claim without IJSS Inc.'s prior written approval. Seller agrees to pay or reimburse all costs that may be incurred by IJSS Inc. in enforcing this indemnity, including attorneys' fees.
Should IJSS Inc.'s use, or use by its distributors, subcontractors or customers, of any Goods or Services purchased from Seller be enjoined, be threatened by injunction, or be the subject of any legal proceeding, Seller shall, at is sole cost and expense, either (a) substitute fully equivalent non-infringing Goods or Services; (b) modify the Goods or Services so that they no longer infringe but remain fully equivalent in functionality; (c) obtain for IJSS Inc., its distributors, subcontractors or customers the right to continue using the Goods or Services; or (d) if none of the foregoing is possible, refund all amounts paid for the infringing Goods or Services.
Seller will acquire knowledge of IJSS Inc. Confidential Information (as defined below) in connection with its performance hereunder and agrees to keep such IJSS Inc. Confidential Information in confidence during and following termination or expiration of this Agreement. "IJSS Inc. Confidential Information" includes but is not limited to all information, whether written or oral, in any form, including without limitation, information relating to the research, development, products, methods of manufacture, trade secrets, business plans, customers, vendors, finances, personnel data, Work Product (as defined herein) and other material or information considered proprietary by IJSS Inc. relating to the current or anticipated business or affairs of IJSS Inc. which is disclosed directly or indirectly to Seller. In addition, IJSS Inc. Confidential Information means any third party's proprietary or confidential information disclosed to Seller in the course of providing Services or Goods to IJSS Inc. Confidential Information does not include any information (i) which Seller lawfully knew without restriction on disclosure before IJSS Inc. disclosed it to Seller, (ii) which is now or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act or failure to act of Seller, (iii) which Seller developed independently without use of the IJSS Inc. Confidential Information, as evidenced by appropriate documentation, or (iv) which is hereafter lawfully furnished to Seller by a third party as a matter of right and without restriction on disclosure. In addition, Seller may disclose Confidential Information which is required to be disclosed pursuant to a requirement of a government agency or law so long as Seller provides prompt notice to IJSS Inc. of such requirement prior to disclosure.
Seller agrees not to copy, alter or directly or indirectly disclose any IJSS Inc. Confidential Information. Additionally, Seller agrees to limit its internal distribution of IJSS Inc. Confidential Information to Seller's Assistants who have a need to know, and to take steps to ensure that the dissemination is so limited, including the execution by Seller's Assistants of nondisclosure agreements with provisions substantially similar to those set forth herein. In no event will Seller use less than the degree of care and means that it uses to protect its own information of like kind, but in any event not less than reasonable care to prevent the unauthorized use of IJSS Inc. Confidential Information.
Seller further agrees not to use the IJSS Inc. Confidential Information except in the course of performing hereunder and will not use such IJSS Inc. Confidential Information for its own benefit or for the benefit of any third party. The mingling of the IJSS Inc. Confidential Information with information of Seller shall not affect the confidential nature or ownership of the same as stated hereunder. Seller agrees not to design or manufacture any products which incorporate IJSS Inc. Confidential Information. All IJSS Inc. Confidential Information is and shall remain the property of IJSS Inc.. Upon IJSS Inc.'s written request or the termination of this Agreement, Seller shall return, transfer or assign to IJSS Inc. all IJSS Inc. Confidential Information, including all Work Product, as defined herein, and all copies thereof.
