CFI TERMS AND CONDITIONS 

Updated 05.08.2020

Please read these terms and conditions carefully. They contain important information concerning customer’s (“Customer”) legal rights, warranties, obligations and available dispute resolutions remedies. They also provide that if CFI Sales, Inc.

Except in those instances where CFI and a business Customer (“Business Customer”) enter into a separate written contract for the purchase of products and/or services providing for separate terms of sale, the following terms and conditions will apply. For clarification, the term “Customer” includes Business Customers as well as individuals, and the term Business Customer includes, but is not limited to, government, institutional, and educational customers. 

CFI reserves the right to revise these Terms and Conditions at any time. 

  1. SALES POLICY FOR PRODUCTS

      • CFI reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to offer a volume discount (“Volume Discount”) to Customers based upon the quantity of products purchased in a single transaction. Volume Discount pricing is subject to product availability, and quantity limits may apply. CFI reserves the right to: (i) accept or reject any Volume Discount order; or (ii) charge the full price for the product in the event that Volume Discount priced items are returned. 
      • SALES TAX 
        • Customer is responsible for payment of all applicable state and local taxes, or for providing a valid sales tax exemption certificate. When placing an order, Customer shall indicate which products are tax exempt. 
      • PAYMENT AND CREDIT TERMS. 
        • CFI accepts cash, checks, ACH, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. For Customers with established CFI credit, payment terms are net thirty (30) days from the date of invoice. All credit extended by CFI and the limits of such credit, is at CFI’s sole discretion, and may be reduced or revoked by CFI at any time, for any reason. As a condition for the continued extension of credit, Customer agrees to provide CFI with current credit information and the latest annual financial statement within five (5) business days following request by CFI. CFI reserves the right to charge Customer a late payment fee at the rate of $5.00 or one and one-half percent (1-1/2%) of the amount due, whichever is greater, for each month or portion thereof that the amount due remains unpaid, or such amount as may be permitted under applicable law. CFI reserves the right to pursue collection action (including without limitation, attorneys’ fees and any and all other associated costs of collection). Payments are first applied to finance charges and then to the oldest balance. Anticipation and cash discounts are not allowed. All payments must be made in U.S. dollars. CFI has the right of set-off and deduction for any sums owed by the Customer to CFI. 
        • If the Customer fails to make payment within thirty (30) days of invoice or fails to comply with CFI’s credit terms, or fails to supply adequate assurance of full performance to CFI within a reasonable time after requested by CFI (such time as specified in CFI's request), CFI may defer shipments until such payment or compliance is made, require cash in advance for any further shipments, demand immediate payment of all amounts then owed, and/or may, at its option, cancel all or any part of an unshipped order. If Customer fails to comply with these payment terms, CFI may, at its sole discretion, and without notice, immediately terminate any agreements it has with Customer. Upon such termination all amounts owed by Customer to CFI shall become immediately due and payable. 
        • CFI has the right, at any time and in its sole discretion, to immediately change the terms of any credit extended to Customer if: (i) there is a material change in Customer’s financial capability or creditworthiness; (ii) Business Customer enters into or signs an agreement regarding any Change of Control; or (iii) a trustee, receiver or examiner is appointed for Business Customer or its affiliates or subsidiaries or Business Customer’s plan of reorganization is confirmed by a U.S. Bankruptcy Court. “Change of Control” means any (x) sale, lease, or other disposition of all or substantially all of Business Customer’s assets; (y) transaction or series of related transactions (by stock sale or otherwise) in which any person or entity becomes the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of more than 50% of Business Customer’s voting control; or (z) merger or consolidation involving Business Customer. Additionally, Business Customer, and each of its subsidiaries and affiliates, agrees to provide to CFI proper authorization necessary for CFI to request any financial information from third parties. 
        • Business Customer hereby unconditionally guarantees payment as a primary obligor of, as provided herein, all purchases made by Business Customer, its subsidiaries and affiliates. Each of Business Customer’s subsidiaries and affiliates purchasing from CFI are jointly and severally liable for all purchases made by Business Customer and its subsidiaries, and Customer is also acting as agent for such subsidiaries and affiliates. Business Customer further agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless CFI from any and all claims, injuries, damages, losses or suits, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of, or in connection with any attempt to disgorge or recover payments to CFI made on behalf of Business Customer by a subsidiary and affiliate on the grounds that such payment was improper, unauthorized, or constituted a fraudulent transfer.
