GHX's acceptance of any purchase order is limited to Purchaser's agreement to the express terms contained herein. Purchaser's agreement to these terms and conditions shall be conclusively presumed from Purchaser's placement of an online order with GHX. Any proposal for additional or different terms, or any attempt by Purchaser to vary in any degree any of the terms herein, is hereby objected to and rejected. Any provisions on the face or reverse side of any purchase order which Purchaser may send to GHX in connection herewith are for order identification only, are expressly objected to by GHX and waived by Purchaser, and made inapplicable to any purchase of GHX products and/or services.
Payment is due 30 days from the invoice date in US Dollars, unless otherwise specified herein. If Purchaser fails to pay any invoice when due, or if the financial condition or credit of Purchaser becomes unsatisfactory to GHX, GHX, at its option and without affecting any other lawful remedy, may change the terms of payment or suspend work and further deliveries, or both, until Purchaser provides security or other assurances for performance as demanded by GHX. The failure or refusal of Purchaser to provide assurances within ten (10) days after a request by GHX will constitute a repudiation, at GHX's discretion, of the entire contract. By submitting any purchase order or other writing, either prior or subsequent to the date of GHX's quotation, Purchaser represents that it is solvent for all purposes.
Quotations are subject to change without notice and cover only the specified quantity. Due to conditions affecting prices, GHX will accept orders with the understanding that GHX reserves the right (with the exception to any price quoted for a special article) to change the price at any time, or from time to time, as to any part of the order then unfilled. Delivery of any part of an order at the price stated thereon shall be without prejudice to GHX’s right, as stated, to change the price as to any remaining part of the order.
Unless otherwise stated with the order, Purchaser is responsible for any freight costs associated with the delivery of products to its destination. Title and risk of loss will pass to Purchaser upon delivery to the common carrier or upon customer pick-up.
Any tax imposed on GHX by any law or governmental entity on the sale or use of the products sold by GHX shall be in addition to the sales price thereof.
(a) While GHX shall try to schedule Purchaser’s order for delivery as nearly in accordance with its instructions as possible, GHX does not guarantee nor assume liability for failure to meet any delivery dates.
(b) GHX shall not be liable for failure to deliver products ordered by Purchaser if due to fire, flood, hurricane, riots, war, terrorism, government regulation, shortages of material, qualified labor, or inventory, discontinuance or change in design of ordered products, acts of God, or other similar or dissimilar causes beyond the reasonable control of GHX.
Cancellation of orders once placed with and accepted by GHX can be made only with GHX’s consent. Orders may be cancelled or deliveries deferred only upon the condition that Purchaser assumes immediate liability and makes payments to GHX for (a) all work completed at the unit price; (b) work in progress on the basis of percentage of completion thereof times the order unit price, and (c) raw materials, unamortized tooling, engineering and other cancellation charges incurred on the basis of cost to GHX, plus handling and overhead charges. All cancellation charges shall be determined at the time of cancellation and are immediately due and payable.
GHX may, but is not obligated to, accept a written request by Purchaser to delay shipment of any ordered products. If delayed shipment is accepted by GHX, Purchaser shall pay any additional costs incurred by the delay and the price for the balance of the order shall be adjusted to reflect prices and costs in effect at the time of actual shipment. Any agreed to shipping delay is not to exceed thirty (30) days on that portion of the order which is not then in process or completed on condition that at the expiration of such time definite shipping instructions which meet with GHX’s approval are given. Should the Purchaser at the expiration of the delay period fail to furnish definite acceptable shipping instructions, GHX shall have the right to make a cancellation charge on the same conditions and terms of payment as outlined under "Cancellation".
Requests for the return of products purchased from GHX will be considered only if the product is in new, resalable condition and in its original packaging. Fabricated custom hoses and gaskets, and special order non-inventoried items are not eligible for return. Eligible return items will be subject to restocking charges and should only be returned to GHX after a Return Goods Authorization Number has been obtained from GHX’s customer service department.
Shortages or differences in shipments must be reported in writing to GHX within ten (10) days after receipt of shipment.
Warranties for the products shall be as follows: (1) with respect to the design, workmanship and materials of the products, GHX extends to Purchaser, and does hereby assign to Purchaser, the same warranty or warranties regarding design, workmanship and materials relating to the products as the manufacturer or supplier of the products extends to GHX, which shall be the sole warranty or warranties extended to Purchaser with regard to the products, and (2) with respect to any fabrication work relating to the products performed by GHX, GHX warrants its workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the shipment date.
With respect to services supplied to Purchaser, GHX warrants it will perform all services in a workmanlike manner in accordance with (i) any specifications set forth on any applicable service order; (ii) any Purchaser site requirements communicated to GHX; and (iii) generally accepted industry practices applicable to the services; and (iv) these Terms and Conditions. If GHX breaches this warranty with respect to the services, upon notice from Purchaser delivered not less than 60 days after such services have been provided, GHX will promptly repair, replace or re-supply the services in question (including shipping and labor costs, but not including removal or reinstallation costs) at no cost to Purchaser.
THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF AND EXCLUDES ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING BY OPERATION OF LAW OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
IN NO EVENT WILL GHX BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF GHX FOR ANY DAMAGES HEREUNDER SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID BY PURCHASER FOR THE PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES PURCHASED HEREBY.
Written notice of any claimed defect must be given to GHX within thirty (30) days after such defect is or should have been discovered. Products claimed to be defective must be held for GHX's shipping instructions. No claim for products alleged to be defective will be allowed until GHX has had a reasonable opportunity to examine the products. GHX's obligation with respect to defective products is expressly limited to the repair or replacement of, or at its option, allowing credit for any such products, all as herein above provided.
This warranty does not extend to (a) any losses due to misuse, accident, abuse, neglect, normal wear and tear, or improper installation, maintenance or application; (b) products that have been repaired or altered outside of GHX's facility, unless authorized in writing by GHX or unless such installation, repair or alteration is performed by GHX; or (c) any labor charges for removal and/or replacement of the non-conforming or defective product or part thereof. This warranty extends to Purchaser only and not to Purchaser’s customers or users of Purchaser’s products.

THEY SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR FABRICATION, MANUFACTURING, PRODUCTION, OR ANY OTHER APPLICATION WITHOUT VERIFICATION BY AN ENGINEER OR OTHER APPROPRIATE DESIGN PROFESSIONAL THAT THEY MEET ANY AND ALL CODES AND ENGINEERING AND OTHER REQUIREMENTS APPLICABLE TO SUCH APPLICATION.

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without reference to any conflict of laws principles. Venue for any action shall lie in the federal or state courts of Houston, Harris County, Texas, and without regard to the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods or other international treaty, rule or accord.
These Terms and Conditions of Sale and Purchaser’s underlying online order to which they relate constitute the entire agreement between the parties. Except as otherwise provided for herein, any changes must be agreed to in writing by GHX. No statement, recommendation or assistance made or offered by GHX through its salespersons or other representatives to the Purchaser with respect to the use of any product sold by GHX shall be or constitute a waiver by GHX of any of the provisions hereof.
