General Conditions of Sale

Life Whisperer Viability

 

These are the exclusive General Conditions of Sale by FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific, Inc. ("Seller") to Buyer ("Buyer"), for the Buyer’s purchase and/or Trial of access rights to Embryo Viability Assessment software licensed by Life Whisperer Diagnostics Pty Ltd. ("LW" or "OPL," as defined below) products and/or services (the "Products"), which shall together constitute and set forth the entire contract (the "Agreement") between the parties with respect to the purchase and sale of the Products. Products are NOT FOR RESALE without the express prior written approval of Seller.

Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Seller is a reseller of the Product, not the manufacturer or original Product licensor ("OPL"), and therefore Seller disclaims any warranty responsibility regarding Product provided under this Order. All warranties and other terms or conditions of Buyer's license to use the Product are set forth under the End User License Agreement between Buyer and OPL ("ULA"). Seller is not a party to the EULA or to any warranty terms between Customer and OPL and Buyer agrees to look solely to the OPL for satisfaction of any and all warranty claims related to that OPL's Product. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THIS ORDER, SELLER HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WARRANTY OF NONINFRINGEMENT, OR ANY WARRANTY RELATING TO THIRD PARTY SERVICES. THE DISCLAIMER CONTAINED IN THIS PARAGRAPH DOES NOT AFFECT THE TERMS OF ANY WARRANTY PROVIDED BY OPL.

BUYER FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE PRODUCTS ARE A SOFTWARE APPLICATION FOR ASSESSMENT OF EMBRYO IMAGES, INTENDED TO BE USED FOR CLINICAL DECISION SUPPORT TO AID IN THE SELECTION OF EMBRYOS DURING IN VITRO FERTILIZATION (IVF) PROCEDURES. THE PRODUCTS ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE USED, AND BUYER SHALL NOT USE THE PRODUCTS, AS DIRECT DIAGNOSTICS.

Acceptance

Upon receipt hereof, and subsequent access and/or use of the Products, Buyer will be deemed to have accepted and assented to these General Conditions of Sale, which represent the entire valid and binding Agreement between Seller and Buyer, and unless covered under separate written agreement signed by both parties, supersedes any and all prior understandings, agreements, representations, warranties, or other statements or promises, if any, which have been made by or to any of the parties in connection herewith. Seller will not be bound by, and specifically objects to, any term, condition, or other provision that is different from or in addition to the provisions of this Agreement (whether or not it would materially alter this Agreement) that Buyer proffers in any purchase order, receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence, or other document that Buyer proffers as an acceptance of this Agreement, unless Seller specifically agrees to such provision in a written instrument signed by Seller.

Free Trial

If set forth on Seller's quotation to Buyer, Buyer may have access to a no-charge Trial of the Products. All General Conditions of Sale set forth herein apply with respect to Buyer's Trial of the Products, except for Buyer’s payment obligations during the limited Trial period. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that its access to the Trial of the Products constitutes good and sufficient consideration for the parties' respective obligations set forth herein.

Pricing and Terms; Taxes; Credit Approval

Seller reserves the right to change prices without notice. Standard payment terms are NET 30 DAYS. A finance charge of 1.5% per month (annual percentage rate of 18%), or the highest rate allowable by applicable law, whichever is higher, determined and compounded on a daily basis from the date due until the dated paid, may be charged to past due accounts. Payment of such finance charges will not excuse or cure Buyer's breach or default for late payment. A condition of Seller's obligation to deliver the Products or Services is its approval of Buyer's credit and payment arrangements. If Buyer's credit rating is not satisfactory to Seller, Seller may require shorter payment terms or payment in advance. Prices do not include any sales, use, value-added, withholding or similar taxes. Buyer will pay or reimburse Seller for all taxes or other amounts payable to governmental authorities in connection with the applicable transactions (other than Seller's net income taxes), or where applicable will provide Seller with an exemption certificate satisfactory to Seller.

Credit Card Orders

Upon Seller’s prior approval, Seller may accept VISA®, MasterCard® and American Express®as payment for order. If Buyer has provided Buyer's credit card or debit card for payment, Buyer hereby authorizes Seller to charge such credit card or debit card to obtain payment.

Excused Performance

Seller will not be responsible for, or be considered to be in breach of or default under this Agreement on account of, any cause or event beyond Seller's reasonable control (including, but not limited to, Seller's inability, after due and timely diligence, to procure access to the Products by Buyer). Seller shall not be liable for any loss, damage or penalty as a result of any delay in or failure to make the Products available for Buyer's use due to any cause beyond Seller's reasonable control.

Nothing disclosed herein is to be construed as a recommendation to use Products in violation of any patents. Product information provided to Buyer in the COA or other accompanying documentation is believed to be accurate, however, said Product information and Products are offered without warranty or guarantee since the ultimate conditions of use and the variability of use cases are beyond Seller's control. Seller is not responsible or liable for patent infringements or other violations of any law or regulation that may occur with the Buyer's use of the Products. Products are not to be used beyond the "expiration date" specified on a Product's label.

SELLER GIVES NO, AND DISCLAIMS ANY, WARRANTIES, UNDERTAKINGS OR SIMILAR TERMS WHATSOEVER IN RESPECT OF ANY TRIAL USE OF THE PRODUCT BY BUYER.

Exclusive Remedy and Release of Other Liabilities

In the event of a breach of the foregoing warranty, Buyer shall notify Seller and Seller, in its sole discretion, shall either replace Buyer's rights to use the affected Product, or refund to Buyer the purchase price for the affected Product. THIS REMEDY SHALL BE THE EXCLUSIVE AND SOLE REMEDY OF BUYER FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY. The warranties, obligations and liabilities of Seller and the remedies of Buyer set forth in this Agreement are exclusive, and BUYER HEREBY WAIVES, DISCLAIMS AND RELEASES, ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, OBLIGATIONS AND LIABILITIES OF SELLER AND ALL OTHER RIGHTS, CLAIMS AND REMEDIES OF BUYER AGAINST SELLER express or implied, arising by law or otherwise, with respect to the Products and any other goods or Services delivered under this Agreement including, without limitation, any obligation, liability, right, claim or remedy in tort (including claims for Seller's own negligence or strict liability) or for infringement.

Liability

SAVE THAT NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT LIMITS OR EXCLUDES THE LIABILITY OF ANY PARTY TO THE OTHER FOR ANY LIABILITY THAT IS NOT PERMITTED TO BE LIMITED OR EXCLUDED BY LAW:
