Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions are an agreement (“Agreement”) between Sealing Devices Inc. (hereafter “Sealing Devices”, “we”, “us” or “our”) and each user (“you” or “your”) of the website and products and services (“Services”) sold by Sealing Devices.
2. Personal Information
3. Changes to the Terms of Service
Sealing Devices reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to revise or replace this Agreement at any time. For instance, we may need to change this Agreement if a new feature to the website is launched or new Services are offered. It is your responsibility to check for changes to this Agreement. If you do not agree to the new terms, you must discontinue use of the website and you should not purchase any additional Services. If you continue to use the website or purchase Services after the revised terms go into effect, then you have accepted the changes to this Agreement.
4. Order Acceptance
The sale of Services by Sealing Devices to the purchaser is governed by this Agreement, together with order specific terms agreed to in writing by the parties relating to pricing, quantity, specifications, delivery schedules and locations (collectively, “Contract”).
(a) No alterations to the Contract shall be binding unless agreed to in writing by both parties. Should Sealing Devices by any words, acts or writing, waive or be deemed to have waived any provisions of the Contract, or should Sealing Devices fail to insist upon performance by purchaser of one or more of the terms herein, such action or failure on Sealing Devices’ part will in no way be deemed to constitute a waiver of any other terms contained in the Contract.
(b) All orders received from purchaser are subject to acceptance by Sealing Devices, unless the quotation specifies that it is a bid in response to an invitation in which event the order or award shall constitute acceptance of the bid in accordance with the bid terms.
(c) Terms and conditions on the purchaser’s order form that are at variance with the Contract, are binding on Sealing Devices only if specifically accepted by Sealing Devices in writing.
(d) Orders accepted by Sealing Devices cannot be cancelled by purchaser except with Sealing Devices’ written consent and upon terms that will indemnify Sealing Devices against loss.
Prices quoted by Sealing Devices are valid for thirty (3) days from the date of quotation. Unless otherwise stated, legal delivery and prices are F.O.B. Sealing Devices’ plant. Prices do not include transportation costs. Taxes are not included in price except where otherwise prohibited by law. All sales, excise, use or similar taxes or charges by the federal, any foreign or any state or local government, which Sealing Devices may be required to pay or collect, shall be in addition to price stated and shall be paid by purchaser, unless valid exemption certificate is furnished therefore.
You agree to pay in U.S. Dollars all invoiced amounts within thirty (30) days from date of Sealing Devices’ invoice. Sealing Devices may demand payment in advance of shipment if, in its sole discretion, the credit or financial condition of purchaser is, or is about to become, impaired.
Where purchaser requests delay in shipment, Sealing Devices may bill for Services when ready for shipment. If material is not ordered out within sixty (60) days after Services are ready, Sealing Devices may bill reasonable storage charges.
7. Shipping and Delivery
Shipping dates are approximate only and subject to change. Sealing Devices will use reasonable efforts to deliver Services on time; however, Sealing Devices will not be liable in damages or otherwise delays or failure in performance when caused by circumstances, of every nature and description and however arising, beyond Sealing Devices’ reasonable control.
Sealing Devices will provide commercial packaging, adequate under normal conditions, to protect Services in shipment and identify the contents. Should purchaser request any special packaging, it will be done at purchaser’s expense. All Services will be shipped via the cheapest or most expeditious means of commercial transportation under the circumstances, unless purchaser indicates otherwise. Claims for loss or damage in transit must be pursued with the commercial transportation company by the purchaser.
8. Rejections and Returns
Purchaser will be deemed to have inspected and accepted any shipment under the Contract if, within thirty (30) days of purchaser’s receipt of Services, purchaser has not notified Sealing Devices in writing that such Services are rejected and the grounds therefore. No Services may be returned by purchaser for any reason without Sealing Devices’ prior written Return Material Authorization approval.
9. Termination by Sealing Devices
In addition to any other rights of Sealing Devices to terminate or suspend the Contract, Sealing Devices may, upon written notice to purchaser, immediately terminate or suspend all or any part of the Contract without any liability to purchaser, (a) if purchaser (i) repudiates, breaches, or threatens to breach any terms of the Contract, (ii) fails to accept or threatens not to accept Services in accordance with the Contract, or (iii) fails to make timely payment, or (b) upon the occurrence or threat of insolvency or bankruptcy of purchaser. Upon termination of the Contract by Sealing Devices: (A) Sealing Devices shall be relieved of any further obligation to purchaser (B) purchaser shall be liable to Sealing Devices for the immediate payment of amounts then billed to date by Sealing Devices to purchaser; (C) purchaser shall purchase and pay Sealing Devices immediately for all unique raw materials, work in process and finished goods under the Contract; (D) purchaser shall reimburse Sealing Devices for any unreimbursed and unamortized research and development costs, capital equipment, and supplies that are unique to the Services; and (E) purchaser shall immediately reimburse Sealing Devices for all preparation and other expenses incurred by it or its sub-contractors in connection with the Contract and for all other losses or costs arising from termination.
10. Termination by Purchaser
If Sealing Devices fails to perform any material obligation under the Contract or delivers Services after an agreed upon delivery date, and, if the nonperformance can be cured but Sealing Devices fails to cure the non-performance within thirty (30) days after written notice from purchaser, purchaser may terminate this Contract without further obligation. Otherwise, upon giving notice to Sealing Devices not less than ninety (90) days prior to shipment purchaser may cancel any purchase order or scheduled delivery under the Contract, in which case, (a) Sealing Devices will be relieved of any further obligation to purchaser; (b) purchaser will pay all amounts then due; (c) purchaser will purchase and pay Sealing Devices immediately for all unique raw materials, work in process and finished goods under the Contract; and (d) purchaser shall reimburse Sealing Devices for any unreimbursed and unamortized research and development costs, capital equipment, and supplies that are unique to the Services.

In any case, Sealing Devices’ responsibility is limited to proper design, proper handling in manufacture and storage, and adequate insurance. The purchaser is responsible for costs resulting from: (1) alterations requested by purchaser; (2) major repairs or replacement caused by normal wear; (3) additional costs incurred when new factors are introduced such as shorter lead time and/or increased rate of delivery.
