Terms and Conditions of Sale


  1. General. These Terms and Conditions of Sales (“Terms”) are entered into by DEWESoft, LLC (“DEWESoft”) and the purchaser identified on DEWESoft’s order acknowledgement (“Purchaser”).  No purchase order (“Order”) for any of DEWESoft’s goods or services (collectively, the “Goods”) is binding on DEWESoft until acknowledged in writing by DEWESoft.  These Terms and DEWESoft’s acknowledgement constitute the entire agreement (the “Agreement”) between Purchaser and DEWESoft.  Any terms contained in Purchaser Order, offer, counteroffer, or referenced in any communications, which seek to modify, add to, or are inconsistent with these Terms are hereby rejected and of no force and effect.  Acceptance of this Agreement is expressly made condition upon Purchaser’s asset to these Terms.  DEWESoft will in no way be deemed to have agreed to change, modify, or expand its liabilities or obligations as fixed by these Terms.  Purchaser will be deemed to have agreed to these Terms upon the earlier to occur of: (a) Purchaser’s acceptance of DEWESoft’s quotation, (b) acceptance of the delivery of the Goods, or (c) issuance of a purchase order to DEWESoft that conforms with DEWESoft’s quotation. 


  1. Price. Prices contained in quotes are valid for thirty (30) days from the date of issuance.  All prices are reflected in United States Dollars and exclude sales, excise, state, municipal taxes, or any other government charges.  All taxes and government charges due in connection with the sale of Goods shall be paid by Purchaser unless Purchaser supplies DEWESoft with applicable documentation from the relevant taxing authority that Purchaser is exempt from paying such taxes and government fees. 


  1. Payment Terms. Invoices are due and payable by Purchaser within thirty (30) days of receipt. Invoices are issued upon shipment of the Goods. Past due amounts under invoices will be assessed interest at the greater of: (i) 3% per annum, or (ii) the maximum interest rate permissible to charge under applicable law.  If any amounts are not paid when due under an invoice, DEWESoft reserves the right to suspend its performance hereunder, including the delivery of any Goods until all overdue amounts are paid in full without liability to Purchaser.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Purchaser fails to pay any overdue amounts within seven (7) calendar days of receipt of DEWESoft’s written demand for payment, then DEWESoft shall have the option to immediately terminate this Agreement for cause and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have under this Agreement or applicable law. Item descriptions and specifications are subject to change.  Please check dewesoft.com for the latest specifications on Goods.  Credit card orders are subject to a 3% service charge. 


  1. Delivery. Lead times for Goods vary based on the type of Goods so Purchaser is encouraged to inquire about current lead times.  DEWESoft will undertake commercially reasonable efforts to meet any mutually agreed upon delivery date contained in DEWESoft’s written acknowledgement, provided, however, that DEWESoft will have no liability for any delay in delivery that is caused by reasons beyond DEWESoft’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, changes made by Purchaser, force majeure events, or delays in transportation or the inability to obtain necessary materials, labor or facilities.  Shipping is Ex Works DEWESoft’s facility (Incoterms 2020).  Risk of loss shall transfer from DEWESoft to Purchaser upon DEWESoft tendering the Goods to Purchaser’s chosen carrier.

  1. Inspection. Upon receipt, Purchaser shall inspect the Goods.  Any notice for claims, including non-conforming or defective Goods must be made in writing by Purchaser to DEWESoft within fourteen days of receipt of such Goods (the “Inspection Period”).  If no claim is made within the Inspection Period, the Goods will be deemed to have been accepted. 


  1. Warranty. DEWESoft warrants that the Goods have been produced in accordance with DEWESoft’s published standards and DEWESoft’s Standard Warranty.  If Goods are non-conforming or defective, then DEWESoft will handle such non-conformance or defects in accordance with the terms of its standard warranty.  DEWESoft’s Standard Warranty and the remedies provided therein is offered in lieu of all other remedies available under the law.  EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTY IN THIS SECTION 7 AND DEWESOFT’s STANDARD WARRANTY, DEWESOFT MAKES NO OTHER REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY REGARDING THE GOODS AND FULLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY VIRTUE OF COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OF TRADE, OR TRADE PRACTICE.
