By agreeing to these Terms, Customer also agrees to be bound and abide by our Privacy Policy, found here, incorporated herein by reference. By accessing our website, www.borderstates.com, Customer agrees to abide by Border States’ Website Terms of Use, found at https://www.borderstates.com/termsAndConditions. Under no circumstances will Border States agree to or be bound by any provisions, conditions, or agreements that are inconsistent with, contrary to, additional to, in lieu of, or that modify in any manner, these Terms, unless an authorized Officer of Border States agrees to such provisions, conditions, or agreements in writing. No terms and/or conditions from Customer, usage of trade, course of dealing or performance, understanding, or agreement alleged to modify, vary, explain, or supplement these Terms shall be binding upon Border States unless subsequently made in writing and signed by each Party.

2. ACCEPTANCE

Acceptance of any order or request from Customer is subject to approval by Border States and, when applicable, Border States’ suppliers. Border States reserves the right to accept or reject any order (or a portion thereof) without liability to Border States, including, without limitation, if Customer’s credit becomes unsatisfactory to Border States, and/or to immediately change the terms of any credit extended to Customer.

3. QUOTATIONS AND PRICES

Quotations given by Border States to Customer are not an offer to sell but only an invitation for an order. Border States reserves the right to reject a purchase order, or portions thereof, for any reason or for no reason at all. Unless otherwise expressly agreed to by Border States in writing, prices shall be based upon the price in effect at the time of Border States’ shipment of each order. Prices and other information shown in any Border States’ publication (including product catalogs, brochures, and websites) are subject to correction or change without notice. Products may be substituted by Border States and may not be identical to catalog or website published descriptions and/or images (including such Products’ country of origin).

Prices listed do not include charges for shipping, handling fees, taxes (use, excise, value added, or similar), duties, and/or similar charges (“Charges”). Customer shall pay all Charges when due, including any associated penalties. Customer shall indemnify Border States for all Charges set forth herein, including legal expenses reasonably incurred by Border States, due to Customer’s failure to pay any Charges.

Border States’ acceptance of any payment from Customer without the accrued late fee shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such accrued late fees. Any lien rights or legal remedies for non-payment asserted by Border States shall be governed by the laws of the state where the Products were delivered. To the extent permitted by law, Customer will pay all reasonable costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, collection agency fees, and court costs, incurred by Border States in connection with any collection action for payment of amounts due.

5. DELIVERY

5.4. Border States shall not be liable for any losses, damages, or delays in delivery or other failures in performance due to, without limitation, acts of God (including fires, floods, epidemics, etc.), political/social unrest, acts or threats of terrorism, acts of the Customer, quarantine restrictions, computer or electronic interruptions, failure of its suppliers to ship or deliver on time, transportation embargoes, inability to secure products from
vendors or suppliers at reasonable prices or in sufficient amounts through usual sources of supply, or any other circumstances beyond Border States’ reasonable control.
