Terms and Conditions of Sale
Unless otherwise agreed to by TROX, LLC (“TROX”) in writing, by placing your order, you (sometimes referred to as “Customer” below) accept and are bound to the Terms and Conditions of Sale (the “Agreement”) below:
“Products” means any item produced and sold by Trox, LLC
Quotes, Ordering, and Payment.
Payment Terms; Orders; Quotes; Interest. Your order is subject to acceptance or cancellation by TROX, in TROX’s sole discretion. Terms of payment are within TROX’s sole discretion. TROX may accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or PayPal. For customers that have approved credit with TROX, payments are due as set forth in the invoices issued by TROX and in accordance with Paragraph 5 below. Each accepted order will be interpreted as a single agreement, independent of any other orders. For all other orders, payment must be made by credit card, automated clearing house, wire transfer, electronic funds transfer or some other prearranged payment. Orders are subject to availability and are cancellable by TROX.
Timely payment of the price and all charges is of the essence. It is the responsibility of Customer to ensure payments are authorized and approved on time to ensure receipt of payment no later than the due date; in no case shall TROX be responsible for ensuring such authorization or approval.
TROX reserves the right to charge you interest of 1.5% per month applied against undisputed overdue amounts, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less. Interest will be recalculated every 30 days thereafter based on your current outstanding balance. In addition, TROX, without waiving any other rights or remedies to which it may be entitled, shall have the right to suspend or terminate any and all orders for Products from Customer until TROX’s receipt of all overdue amounts.
TROX shall have no liability to Customer for any refusal of additional orders. TROX further reserves the right to seek collection of all overdue amounts (including by referral to third party collectors), plus all reasonable legal fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) and costs associated with such collection. Additional charges will apply if Customer requests Products or modification to an order and TROX agrees to provide such modification or changes. TROX reserves the right to change the method of delivery of all documentation, and any requested changes or modifications requested by Customer may be subject to additional charges.
Invoices. For customers with approved credit for which TROX has agreed in writing to extend payment terms, invoices are due and payable within the time period noted on the invoice, or if not noted, then within thirty (30) days, measured from the date of the invoice, subject to continuing credit approval by TROX; such approval may be revoked without further notice from TROX. Customer agrees that all invoices shall be deemed accurate unless Customer advises TROX in writing of a bona fide, material error within fourteen (14) days of the date of such invoice. In the event that Customer advises TROX of a material error, (i) payment of any amounts corrected or modified by TROX in writing shall be due within fourteen (14) days of such correction and (ii) all other amounts shall be paid by Customer by the invoice due date. In the event Customer withholds payment of any invoiced amounts upon an assertion by Customer that such amounts are erroneous, and TROX subsequently concludes that such invoiced amounts are accurate, Customer shall pay interest on such amounts as described above from the due date for such amounts until TROX’s receipt of those amounts in full. In no case shall Customer be entitled to offset, defer or deduct any invoiced amounts that TROX determines are not erroneous following the notification process set forth above.
Shipping Charges; Title; Risk of Loss. Taxes, shipping and handling charges are not included in Product prices unless expressly indicated at the time of sale. Title to Products passes from TROX to Customer upon shipment to Customer. Loss or damage that occurs during shipping by the carrier is not the responsibility of TROX; rather any loss and damage is your responsibility. Shipping and delivery dates are provided as estimates only. You must notify TROX within thirty (30) days of the date of your invoice if you believe any part of your order is missing, incorrect, or damaged.
Freight Policy. All shipments are shipped by your preferred carrier, or TROX can provide you with an estimate from TROX’s preferred carriers, in which case all motor freight shipping charges will be determined once the Product is received by you. If you specify your own freight carrier, all products ordered will be shipped freight collect with the freight carrier you specify. Your freight carrier will bill you for the cost of shipping according to their terms of service. For motor freight shipments not shipped freight collect, TROX will charge you for shipping once the Product is received by you, and you agree to pay all shipment costs. If you have payment terms established with TROX, you will be invoiced for the shipping and handling amount. Otherwise, your credit card or PayPal account will be charged the shipping and handling amount once the shipping and handling amount is determined, and you agree to such charges and expressly agree that TROX may charge the shipping costs to your credit card or PayPal account. You are responsible for receiving the delivery at your facility. Your loading dock receiving abilities can affect your shipping charges.
Taxes. Until you provide TROX with a valid and accurate tax-exemption certificate applicable to your Product purchase and ship-to location, you are responsible for sales tax and any other taxes or governmental fees associated with your order. Customer may qualify for tax exemptions from time to time in which case TROX requests that Customer provide it with a valid certificate of exemption or other appropriate documentary proof of exemption.
Prices. The prices charged for Products shall be the amounts set forth on the applicable invoice. Quoted prices will remain in effect only until the expiration date of the quote (or if no expiration date is stated on the quote, then for thirty (30) days) or TROX’s acceptance of your order, and such prices are subject to shortages in materials or resources, increases in the cost of manufacturing, or other factors.
Changed or Discontinued Products. TROX may revise or discontinue Product offerings at any time without prior notice to Customer. A change in a Product may occur after a Customer places an order but before TROX ships the Product. As a result, Products that Customer receives may display minor differences from the Products ordered. However, TROX will meet or exceed all material specifications for such order.
Returns/Order Cancellation Policy. All returns and order cancellations must be approved by TROX prior to any return. TROX is under no obligation to permit a return or cancel an order. In the event TROX agrees to a return or cancellation, you will be informed of any applicable restocking fees or restrictions at the time of the return or cancellation request. Product returns and cancellation may be denied by TROX. To request a return or cancellation, please include your order number, name, phone number and reason for the return/cancellation. If a return or cancellation is approved, items must to be returned in original crate or packaging, along with the return authorization from TROX. All return shipments must be prepaid and will be refused and returned if shipped collect.
Limited Warranty and Exclusion from Warranty.
NOTHING IN THIS SECTION SHALL EXCLUDE OR LIMIT TROX’S WARRANTY OR LIABILITY FOR LOSSES THAT MAY NOT BE LAWFULLY EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY APPLICABLE LAW. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF IMPLIED TERMS, OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALWAYS ENFORCE CLASS ACTION OR JURY WAIVERS, AND MAY LIMIT FORUM SELECTION CLAUSES AND STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS PROVISIONS, AS SUCH, ONLY THE LIMITATIONS THAT ARE LAWFULLY APPLIED TO YOU IN YOUR JURISDICTION WILL APPLY TO YOU, AND TROX’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
TROX WARRANTS THE PRODUCTS TO BE FREE FROM DEFECTS IN MATERIAL AND WORKMANSHIP FOR A PERIOD OF NINETY (90) DAYS FROM THE DATE THE PRODUCT IS SHIPPED TO CUSTOMER. TROX, (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, CONTRACTORS, AND AGENTS, AND EACH OF THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, AND OFFICERS), ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ITS SUPPLIERS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “TROX PARTIES”) MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY WITH RESPECT TO ANY OF THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTY (1) OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, PERFORMANCE, SUITABILITY, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; (2) RELATING TO THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES; (3) RELATING TO THE PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCTS; OR (4) REGARDING THE RESULTS TO BE OBTAINED FROM THE PRODUCTS OR THE RESULTS OF ANY RECOMMENDATION BY TROX.
TROX DOES NOT WARRANT AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE DUE TO EXTERNAL CAUSES, SUCH AS ACCIDENT, ABUSE, MISUSE, PROBLEMS WITH ELECTRICAL POWER, SERVICE NOT PERFORMED OR AUTHORIZED BY TROX (INCLUDING INSTALLATION OR DE-INSTALLATION), USAGE NOT IN ACCORDANCE WITH PRODUCT INSTRUCTIONS, NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR, OR USE OF PARTS AND COMPONENTS NOT SUPPLIED OR INTENDED FOR USE WITH THE PRODUCTS. ANY WARRANTY ON A THIRD-PARTY PRODUCT IS PROVIDED BY THE ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER. ALL THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.”

TROX’S TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS (INCLUDING ANY PRODUCTS PROVIDED HEREUNDER) IN ANY 12-MONTH PERIOD SHALL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER DURING THE PRIOR 12 MONTHS OF THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE SPECIFIC PRODUCT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM(S).
THESE LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS, AND DISCLAIMERS SHALL APPLY TO ALL CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, OR OTHERWISE. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE AGREED ALLOCATIONS OF RISK CONSTITUTING IN PART THE CONSIDERATION FOR TROX’S SALE OF PRODUCTS TO CUSTOMER, AND SUCH LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY AND EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LIABILITIES.
“Confidential Information” means any information disclosed to Customer by TROX regarding TROX Products or services, either directly or indirectly in writing, orally or by inspection of tangible objects, including without limitation documents, drawings, sketches, prototypes, or samples.
Customer shall not provide access to, disclose, or permit disclosure of any Confidential Information to any third party or any other person or entity.

Injunctive Relief. Customer understands and agrees that, in the event of any actual or threatened use or disclosure of any Confidential Information, TROX will suffer an irreparable injury such that monetary damages will be inadequate to compensate TROX. Accordingly, Customer agrees that, in addition to all other rights and remedies available to it at law and in equity, TROX shall (a) have the right, without posting a bond or proving actual damages, to obtain an immediate injunction from any court of competent jurisdiction enjoining the use or disclosure of Confidential Information and (b) be indemnified by Customer from any loss or harm, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of or in connection with any enforcement of Customer’s obligations hereunder or the unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information.
You shall defend and indemnify TROX against any third-party claim or action arising out of (1) your failure to obtain any appropriate license, or other permissions, regulatory certifications, or approvals associated with Products to be installed or integrated at your location by TROX; (2) your use of any TROX Product; and (2) your breach of TROX’s proprietary rights as stated in this Agreement.
Regulatory Requirements. TROX is not responsible for determining whether any of the Products or any Third Party product or materials, satisfy the local regulatory requirements of the county, city or state to which such Products are to be delivered, and TROX shall not be obligated to provide any Product where the resulting Products do not satisfy the local regulatory requirements.
Entire Agreement; Severability.

If any provision of this Agreement should be found to be void or unenforceable, such provision will be stricken or modified, but only to the extent necessary to comply with the law, and the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and will not be terminated.
TROX reserves the right to update this Agreement at any time, effective upon posting an updated version on its Website or otherwise making it available to Customer; however, your rights and obligations shall be as provided in the version of this Agreement available to you at the time of your purchase of Products.
