This offer supersedes and replaces all prior terms, conditions, proposals, or offers exchanged by the parties, written or verbal. Any additional or different terms previously proposed will not be binding unless specifically agreed to in writing.

We reserve the right at any time before delivery, to amend errors and omissions to estimated dates, quantities, and specifications, and to adjust our pricing to reflect any increase in the cost to us due to any factor beyond our control (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, increase in the cost of time, labour, materials, and freight).

Purchase orders, once placed, are not refundable and are subject to our standard Terms and Conditions of Sale. Warranty is provided by the relevant Vendor, unless specified. CBIT will assist with facilitating warranty related processes; however, additional costs, if any, are determined at the sole discretion of the Vendor. If there is a product that becomes unavailable after acceptance but prior to delivery, the product will then be replaced or substituted with the next closest equivalent product, subject to your final approval.

Payment is due upon receipt of invoice, unless otherwise specified. Freight is EXW (Ex Works), based on acceptance of the above items, and is weight and volume dependent. Insurance, import duties, taxes, and charges are the buyer’s responsibility.
