Please read this contract carefully as the Products are offered conditional upon acceptance, without modification, of the terms, conditions and notices contained herein.

Your indication of acceptance of these Terms and Conditions prior to purchase and/or your acceptance of the Products from SELLER shall be deemed to constitute agreement to all of the Terms and Conditions contained herein. THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS MAY ONLY BE WAIVED OR MODIFIED BY SELLER IN A WRITTEN AGREEMENT SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF SELLER.
I. Product Sale Terms
All orders placed by or for you (the "Buyer") are subject to acceptance by SELLER. Orders may not be cancelled or rescheduled without SELLER’s prior written consent. All orders must include delivery dates, quantities and complete description of Products being purchased. SELLER may in its sole discretion allocate Product among its customers. SELLER may designate certain Products as non-cancelable, non-returnable ("NCNR") and the sale of such Products shall be subject to the special terms and conditions contained in SELLER’s Special Product Agreement which shall prevail and supersede any inconsistent terms and conditions contained herein or elsewhere. Due to the constant fluctuations in SELLER’s inventory levels, some information featured on this Website regarding availability and inventory levels may not be up to date. Products may be out of stock or in short supply. If a Product cannot be shipped within 30 days of receipt of the order by SELLER, SELLER will notify Buyer and allow buyer the opportunity to cancel the order for the Product.
(a) The prices of the Products are those specified on this Website and as further reflected on the front of SELLER’s invoice. Pricing for undelivered Product may be increased in the event of any increase in SELLER’s cost, change in market conditions or any other causes beyond SELLER’s reasonable control. Due to the extremely volatile market for certain types of electronic components, prices quoted on this Website may, on occasion, no longer be in effect. Whenever such a discrepancy exists, Buyer will be advised of the discrepancy before the order is shipped. Subject to the foregoing, Buyer shall pay the prices quoted on the Website. Prices stated or quoted through this Website are quoted in Canadian and in U.S. dollars.
(b) Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by SELLER, all prices quoted are exclusive of transportation and insurance costs, duties, and all taxes including, but not limited to, federal, state, provincial and local sales, excise, goods and services and value added taxes and any other taxes. Buyer agrees to pay these taxes unless Buyer has provided Seller with an exemption resale certificate in the appropriate form for the jurisdiction of Buyer’s place of business and any jurisdiction to which products are to be directly shipped hereunder, or unless the sale is otherwise exempt from these taxes. Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold SELLER harmless for any liability for tax in connection with the sale, as well as the collection or withholding thereof, including penalties and interest thereon. When applicable, transportation and taxes shall appear as separate items on Seller’s invoice.
(c) As pictures and descriptions of all products have been given to ACTIVE by our vendors, ACTIVE does not take responsibilty for any inaccuracies. Pictures are used for illustration purposes only and actual product may differ.
(a) Full payment is due promptly upon placing an order. ACTIVE reserves the right to take all steps necessary and to impose interest, late charges or other payment terms as ACTIVE may deem appropriate to collect full payment from you for products supplied.
(b) All late payments shall be charged interest computed on a daily basis from the due date until paid in full. A late charge of two percent (2%) per month or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, will be imposed on all past due accounts. Buyer shall be liable for costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, in any action to collect past due amounts.
(c) Transportation charges from SELLER’s facility to Buyer’s facility shall be paid by Buyer to SELLER, in addition to the purchase price of the Product, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by SELLER. SELLER will select the carrier.
(d) If SELLER believes in good faith that Buyer’s ability to make payments may be impaired or if Buyer shall fail to pay for an order when due, SELLER may suspend delivery of any order or any remaining balance thereof until such payment is made or cancel any order or any remaining balance thereof, and Buyer shall remain liable to pay for any Products already shipped and all NCNR or C/S Products ordered by Buyer.
(e) SELLER retains a purchase money security interest in the Products delivered to Buyer, and in their accessories, replacements, accessions, proceeds and Products, including accounts receivable (collectively, the "Collateral") to secure payment of all amounts due under this Agreement. Buyer’s failure to pay all amounts hereunder in full when and as due shall constitute a default hereof and shall give SELLER all rights of a secured party. If Buyer fails to pay any amount when due, SELLER shall have the right to repossess and remove all or any part of the Collateral from Buyer, but not from Buyer’s Customers. Any repossession or removal shall be without prejudice to any other remedy of SELLER hereunder, at law or in equity. Buyer agrees, from time to time, to take any act and execute and deliver any document (including, without limitation, financing statements) reasonably requested by SELLER to transfer, create, perfect, preserve, protect and enforce this security interest.
(f) Any payment received from Buyer may be applied by Seller against any obligation owing from Buyer to Seller, regardless of any statement appearing on or referring to such payment, without discharging Buyer’s liability for any additional amounts owing from Buyer to Seller, and the acceptance by Seller of such payment shall not constitute a waiver of Seller’s right to pursue the collection of any remaining balance.
4. Delivery and Title:
All deliveries will be made EXW (Ex Works as defined in Incoterms 2000) SELLER’s facility or FOB place of origin. Subject to SELLER’s right of stoppage in transit, delivery of the Products to the carrier shall constitute delivery to Buyer and title and risk of loss shall thereupon pass to Buyer. Selection of the carrier and delivery route shall be made by SELLER unless specified by Buyer. Buyer acknowledges that delivery dates provided by SELLER are estimates only and SELLER shall not be liable for delays in delivery or for failure to perform due to causes beyond the reasonable control of SELLER nor shall the carrier be deemed an agent of SELLER. In the event of delay caused by such event, the date of delivery shall be extended for a period equal to the time lost as a consequence of the delay in delivery without subjecting SELLER to any liability or penalty. If the Products perished while in the custody of the carrier, the SELLER shall be deemed to have performed its obligations in full. Delivery of a quantity which varies from the quantity specified shall not relieve Buyer of the obligation to accept delivery and pay for the Products delivered. Delay in delivery of one installment shall not entitle Buyer to cancel other installments.
Shipments will be deemed to have been accepted by Buyer upon delivery of the said shipments to Buyer unless rejected upon receipt. Buyer shall perform whatever inspection or tests Buyer deems necessary as promptly as possible but in no event later than five (5) days after delivery, after which time Buyer will be deemed to have irrevocably accepted the Products. Any discrepancy in shipment quantity must be reported within five (5) working days of receipt of the Products. In the event of an over shipment, Buyer shall have the option to return the Products to SELLER at SELLER’s expense or alternatively, Buyer may elect to retain the Products (subject to adjustment of the invoice price to account for additional items). Any Product returns shall be subject to compliance with SELLER’s Return Merchandise Authorization ("RMA") policies and procedures as well as a restocking charge equivalent to 50% of the value of such Product as specified in SELLER’s invoice to Buyer. Returned Products must be in the original packaging and conform with minimum package quantity ("MPQ") requirements. Products not eligible for return shall be returned to Buyer freight collect.
