Terms of payment are at FLIR's sole discretion and are agreed to when an order is placed. All prices quoted and all payments are to be made in U.S. dollars unless otherwise agreed.
FLIR, in its sole discretion, may extend credit to a Purchaser. If credit is extended, Purchaser will be invoiced once Product has been shipped. Purchaser will pay each invoice no later than 30 days (unless otherwise specified in writing by FLIR) from the date of invoice. Interest will accrue on overdue amounts at the rate of 1.5% per month (18% per year), compounded monthly.

Title to all software will remain with the applicable licensor. FLIR may ship products up to 5 business days in advance of confirmed ship date. Purchaser grants FLIR a security interest in the Product and in any proceeds (including accounts receivable) thereof as security for all of its obligations, which security interest will commence upon the Delivery of the Product and terminate upon full payment thereof. Upon request of FLIR, Purchaser will execute any instrument or document required to perfect the security interest.
Delivery dates are approximate. FLIR will use reasonable efforts to fill all orders according to the shipment schedule provided by FLIR at the time of the acceptance of the order. In no event will FLIR guarantee or be deemed to have guaranteed shipment according to such delivery schedule or be liable for damages due to delays in the delivery, including delays arising from export restrictions or out of stock items. Purchaser will bear the cost of and responsibility for obtaining all necessary export permits or licenses.

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and any legislation implementing such convention, if otherwise applicable, will not apply to any order or sale of Products.

All Products have a one, two or three year limited warranty for parts and labour on material and manufacturing defects, and a corresponding period of telephone and e-mail technical support; specific warranty periods can be found at http://www.ptgrey.com/kb/10185. The warranty may only be claimed by the original Purchaser of a Product and will be void if Products are resold. FLIR will, at its option, either repair or replace the damaged Product. FLIR does not warrant compatibility of Products with non-FLIR products. Warranty is void if any proprietary labeling is removed. Repaired or replaced Products are covered by the warranty described in this section for the remainder of the original Product warranty period or 90 days, whichever period is longer.
FLIR will not be responsible for any defect in the Products due to physical damage to the Products as a result of improper handling during or after shipment, misuse, neglect, improper installation or operation (including but not limited to radioactive or other dangerous environments), repair, alteration, accident or for any other cause not attributable to defective workmanship on the part of FLIR.
FLIR EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Repair service may be requested via firstname.lastname@example.org. Products may be returned for repairs up to seven years after their original purchase date. The Purchaser will pay any repair fees assessed by FLIR for products that are not covered by the warranty described in section 13 (Warranties) above. Repaired products will have a hardware warranty period of 90 days from the date of shipment. FLIR may, at its discretion, exclude from this repair policy any Products that:
(a) have been, or show any signs of being, misused, damaged or modified by Purchaser; or
(b) are beyond reasonable reparability.
IN NO EVENT WILL FLIR OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES BE LIABLE TO ANY PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION OR DATA) RESULTING FROM PERFORMANCE OR FAILURE TO PERFORM UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, OR FROM THE FURNISHING, PERFORMANCE OR USE OF ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE SOLD PURSUANT HERETO, WHETHER DUE TO A BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHERWISE EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. FLIR'S LIABILITY WILL NEVER EXCEED THE TOTAL PRICE PAID BY PURCHASER HEREUNDER. FLIR WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY INDIRECT OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY A THIRD PARTY EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN.

No amendment, modification or substitution to these Terms and Conditions by Purchaser, including by the use of additional documentation, is valid or binding on FLIR unless it is in writing and signed by FLIR.
In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions will remain in full force and effect and be construed to best effectuate the intention of the parties hereto.
FLIR will not be liable for any delay or failure in performance, including delay or non-shipment, caused by or resulting from acts of God, fire, flood, accident, riot, war, government intervention, delayed issuance of export licenses, embargoes, strikes, labour difficulties, equipment failures, or any other causes beyond the reasonable control of FLIR.
