TERMS AND CONDITIONS
[Last Updated June, 2020]
The terms and conditions (“Terms”) set forth herein constitute the agreement of CipherEx to sell to Client, and Client to purchase from CipherEx, products (“Products”) and any associated services (“Services”) and are binding on all CipherEx clients (“Clients”). Client accepts these Terms by making a purchase from or placing an order with CipherEx or shopping on the CipherEx website www.cipherex.com (“Site”). For clarification, references to “You”, “Client” or “customer” means business customer. Except in those instances where CipherEx and a Client enter into a separate written contract for the purchase of Products and/or Services providing for separate terms of sale, these Terms will apply. THESE TERMS ARE LIMITED TO THOSE CONTAINED HEREIN. CIPHEREX HEREBY REJECTS AND WILL NOT OTHERWISE BE BOUND BY ANY ADDITIONAL OR DIFFERENT TERMS IN ANY FORM DELIVERED BY YOU TO CIPHEREX, WHETHER ORAL, WRITTEN, ELECTRONIC OR IMPLIED. PURCHASE ORDERS ARE FOR ADMINISTRATIVE PURPOSES ONLY.
Additional or separate terms may apply to your interactions with other CipherEx offerings, and to use of individual services or features available on the Site, such as reviews. The policies of other CipherEx offerings may differ substantially from those applicable to your use of the CipherEx website and portals or a sales individual from our Business Division. To the extent that the provisions of any additional terms conflict with these Terms, the provisions of these Terms will govern. References to “CipherEx,” “our,” “we,” or “us” refer to CipherEx INC. and/or its affiliates, subsidiaries, and designees. We may make changes to these terms or to the CipherEx website at any time. It is your responsibility to review the Terms for updates or changes. If you do not agree with the Terms, you should not place an order with CipherEx or use the Site. The Terms posted on the CipherEx website at the time you place an order will govern the order in question, unless otherwise mutually agreed to in writing by CipherEx and Client. Clients may not use the Site if you are under the age of 18.
The following policies also govern your purchase of Products from CipherEx hereunder and your use of the Site and are incorporated by reference into these Terms:
Validating Your Order
After you place an order, we will check the information you give us for validity by verifying your method of payment or shipping address. We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us, and/or to limit quantities on any order. If we reject your order, we will attempt to notify you using the e-mail address you have given us with the order and process a refund if a charge has been made.
To protect our brand reputation, our clients’ best interest, our vendor relationships and our commitments, CipherEx will not sell products to unauthorized resellers for the sole purpose of reselling at any time. Client warrants that it will not market, resell or use Products other than as expressly permitted under these Terms.
Order Limitation/Limited Quantities
Our order confirmation to you does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. At any time after receipt of your order, we may accept, decline, or place quantity or other limits on your order for any reason. We may impose these limits on a per-person, per-order, or any other basis. If we reject, limit, or otherwise modify your order, we will attempt to notify you using the e-mail address you provide to us. If we cancel an order or part of an order that we’ve already charged you for, we’ll refund you the full amount of the canceled portion of the order. All orders are subject to Product availability.
CipherEx reserves the right to make adjustments to pricing and offers on Products and Services for reasons including, but not limited to, product discontinuation or unavailability and manufacturer price changes.
Paying For Your Order
You may pay for your orders with the following major credit cards issued in the United States or, if approved, through a Net 30 terms account. Currently, we accept Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, and Discover® Card. Net 30 terms may be available to Client through CipherEx’s third-party financing company (“Financing Company”) subject to Financing Company’s approval and contractual terms established directly between Client and Financing Company. You will be responsible for applicable sales, use and property taxes on Products and Services.
Credit cards are not charged until we either ship the item(s) to you or confirm store availability (at which time you will be charged only for the goods we have actually shipped along with any appropriate taxes or shipping charges). However, we may pre-authorize your order amount with your credit card at the time you place the order which may have an effect on your available credit line. Please contact your credit card issuer for more information.
Sales Tax Policy
Because CipherEx does business throughout the United States and collects and remits sales tax as required by law, CipherEx also collects and remits sales tax as appropriate. If you have tax-exempt status, please send your state tax-exempt certification to email@example.com.
Risk Of Loss
CipherEx will be responsible for Product shipments until time of delivery to Client. Client assumes all risk of loss of Product upon CipherEx’s delivery of Product to Client’s designated address. Notwithstanding this allocation of risk of loss, the Product remains subject to CipherEx’s right to reclaim and stop the Product in transit.
Services/Limitation To Services
Clients may schedule and order Services from CipherEx. Certain Services may be provided by third-party service providers. CipherEx and/or its third-party service providers reserve the right to refrain from providing the Services ordered and instead refund Client’s payment, wholly or in part, on the basis that the minimum system requirements are not met or the technical needs (including wiring or overcoming physical or technical barriers) or industry regulations and laws or other requirements of the Client are unusual or extensive and beyond the scope of these Terms, as determined by CipherEx.
CipherEx may perform the Services at Client’s place of business or such other locations as CipherEx and Client mutually agree upon (“Location”). A CipherEx representative must receive full access to the Product(s) and/or peripheral(s) to be serviced, access to the Location, Client’s consent and cooperation to enter the Client’s premises, and a safe working environment, working space and electrical power. If a CipherEx representative arrives at the Location at the scheduled service time and determines that he/she does not reasonably have the access, cooperation, or safe working area described in the previous sentence, the CipherEx representative will use his or her own discretion to resolve the situation while on-site. In the event a satisfactory resolution cannot be achieved, Services will be stopped and the time spent travelling to the Location will be charged to the Client. By acknowledging and agreeing to these Terms, Client hereby permits CipherEx (through its employees, affiliates or agents) to enter the Location at a time and in the manner mutually agreed upon by the parties for the purpose of performing the Services.
CipherEx’s sole obligation, and Client’s exclusive remedy, for any defect or nonconformity in the Products shall be for CipherEx to cooperate with Client to provide it with the benefit, if any, of the warranty and support commitment of the third-party manufacturers and suppliers of the Product. Client expressly waives any claim against CipherEx for any failure of the Product. Client may independently seek to obtain directly from the manufacturers of the Product maintenance or repair of the Product under any warranty or guarantee provided by such manufacturer. Client acknowledges, unless Client obtains separate service agreements with such manufacturers and suppliers or other third party covering maintenance or repair of the Product at the Client’s Location, that such manufacturers and suppliers may require Client to deliver defective Product to their authorized service centers for maintenance or repair. CipherEx does not warrant the merchandise in any way and the only warranties on the merchandise are those provided by the manufacturer.
CipherEx warrants its labor for thirty (30) days following completion of the Services.
