Term and Conditions of Sale
AGREEMENT: By placing your order or requesting a quote, you confirm that the following terms and conditions of sale are the legal agreement governing your purchase, and that no changes or additional or different terms will apply unless you have previously established a different written contract for these purchases with North Coast Lighting unless North Coast Lighting has posted additional terms and conditions for the particular purchase you make.
PRICES AND TAXES: You agree to pay the prices, shipping and handling charges, taxes and duties quoted by us. We will collect applicable taxes unless you have submitted a tax exemption certificate, and have indicated which items are covered by it. Prices on special-order products that we cannot ship from our stock may be subject to change before shipment; we will notify you of any change, and you may cancel your order without charge if the revised prices are unacceptable.
PAYMENT: If you are a Credit Card Customer, you agree to pay at the time of purchase the prices, shipping and handling charges, taxes and duties quoted by us. If you are a North Coast Lighting Account Holder, then you agree to pay invoices within 30 days from our invoice date, or upon such other terms approved by us in writing. Any order from you represents that you are solvent. If we believe that your financial condition requires it, we reserve the right to require full or partial payment prior to manufacture or shipment. If you fail to make any payment when due, (1) we reserve the right to suspend performance and (2) you agree to pay a charge on the amount past due at the rate of 1 ½% per month (18% per year) or the maximum lawful rate, whichever is less. In the event of non-payment, you agree to pay us reasonable attorney's fees and court costs, if any, incurred by us to collect payment and interest charges.
TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS OR DAMAGE: You take title and responsibility for risk of loss or damage at the point of shipment.
QUOTATIONS: Our quotation through a web site, by e-mail or other communication expires thirty (30) days from the date of the quotation. This time limit applies even if you use our quote to submit a job or project bid to your customer. Unless otherwise noted on our quotation, it may be withdrawn earlier by us if prior to your customer's acceptance of your bid, subject to the minimum lawful period.
RETURN OF PRODUCTS AND ORDER CANCELLATION: We will accept returns, within thirty days of shipment, of normal stock products that have not been used, for exchange or refund of the purchase price. On items that you return to us, or which you want to cancel, you will be liable for a restocking or cancellation fee equal to the amount that North Coast Lighting incurs from its supplier or 25% of the price to you, whichever is greater and all shipping charges. All sales are final on products purchased from the North Coast Lighting "Clearance Section", as these are surplus items.
INTERPRETATION RESPONSIBILITY: When plans and specifications are involved, you are responsible to verify our interpretations of them. When substitutes are offered by us on any proposal, you are responsible for their acceptability.
DELIVERY: Factory shipping dates given in advance of actual shipment are approximate and not guaranteed.
EXCUSABLE DELAYS: We will have no liability if our performance is delayed or prevented by causes beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of nature, labor disputes, government priorities, transportation delays, insolvency or other inability to perform by the manufacturer, or any other commercial impracticability.
PRODUCT USE AND SAFETY: WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE PRODUCTS YOU PURCHASE MEET YOUR OR YOUR CUSTOMER'S PLANS AND SPECIFICATIONS OR INTENDED USE. BEFORE YOU USE OR INSTALL ELECTRICAL PRODUCTS, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONSULT THE NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE AND ANY PERTINENT LOCAL CODES FOR APPROVED INSTALLATION PROCEDURES AND PRECAUTIONS. NOTHING WE SELL IS FOR USE IN CONNECTION WITH "SAFETY-RELATED" APPLICATIONS OF A NUCLEAR FACILITY OR ANY HAZARDOUS ACTIVITY WHERE FAILURE OF A SINGLE COMPONENT COULD CAUSE SUBSTANTIAL HARM TO PERSONS OR PROPERTY.

ALL ITEMS IN THE NORTH COAST LIGHTING "CLEARANCE SECTION", ARE SOLD "AS IS" AND CARRY NO WARRANTY.
