Nichols Avenue, Centennial, CO 80112. Any purchase order from Buyer covering the sale of Seller product shall be governed by these Terms and Conditions of Sales. Seller shall not be deemed to have waived these Terms and Conditions of Sale if it fails to object to provisions appearing on, incorporated by reference in, or attached to Buyers purchase order form which provisions are hereby expressly rejected. Buyer silence or acceptance or use of product constitutes its acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Sale. No modification or addition to these Terms and Conditions of Sale shall be effective unless agreed in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Seller. Buyer shall not be obligated to buy any Product from Seller, and Seller shall not be obligated to sell any product to Buyer. In the event Buyer orders product from Buyer and Seller delivers product to Buyer, the Terms and Conditions contained in this document shall apply to all such sales and transactions.
1. Sales Prices. Prices listed on the Sales Order do not include any city, state, or federal excise taxes and when applicable, those taxes will be added to the invoice as a separate charge to be paid by Buyer.

3. Terms of Payment. Buyer agrees to pay Seller as invoiced within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice on approved credit or other payment term agreed in writing by Seller.

Product received by Seller without an RMA number will be returned to the sender. No credits will be issued until product has been received and evaluated.
