  1. GOVERNING PROVISIONS: These Terms and Conditions of Sale govern all sales of goods and services by Windaero after written acceptance of a purchase order from a Buyer. Acceptance of Buyer’s purchase order is made only on the express understanding and condition that, insofar as these Terms and Conditions conflict with any of Buyer’s terms and conditions, Buyer’s conflicting terms shall be invalid unless otherwise accepted in writing by an authorized representative of Windaero, regardless of any terms Buyer seeks to impose or incorporate, or which would otherwise be implied by trade, custom, practice, or course of dealing.
  2. ORDERS: All quotations shall remain subject to availability until Buyer’s purchase order becomes an “Order” upon Windaero’s written acceptance thereof. Modifications or changes to an Order are allowed only upon Windaero’s written approval, and Windaero reserves the right to revise its price and delivery schedules to effect such change(s). In addition, Windaero has the right to charge the Buyer for expenses incurred by Windaero for work or services already performed and rendered unnecessary by such change(s).
  3. PAYMENT: Unless credit terms have been established Windaero shall receive payment from Buyer prior to Delivery in US Dollars via check or Visa or MasterCard. Finance charges will be applied to all overdue balances at 12% per annum (or maximum legal rate if lower), plus any reasonable costs incurred by Windaero as a direct result of recovering and collecting the overdue amount. Interest shall accrue daily from first day the account is overdue until the date of actual payment in full, whether before or after judgment. Buyer shall pay all amounts when due in full without any deduction or withholding (except as required by law) without set-off or counterclaim. When the financial condition of the Buyer or its account so warrants Windaero may at any time, without notice, change or suspend credit terms, stop shipment, or cancel unfilled orders, and such holds shall not constitute Windaero’s breach of its obligations hereunder.
