ONEKA GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR THE SALE OF GOODS AND SERVICES

1. Applicability

  1. These terms and conditions of purchase (these “Terms”) are the only terms which govern the purchase of (i) certain proprietary goods of Oneka to be manufactured and/or supplied by Supplier, including, but not limited to, Oneka’s proprietary “IceCube”, “Iceberg” and “Glacier” products (the “Oneka Goods”); and/or (ii) certain other goods to be manufactured and/or supplied by Supplier (“Supplier Goods”, and collectively with the Oneka Goods, the “Goods”) and services (“Services”) by the undersigned Oneka entity from the supplier named on the first page of the purchase order (“Supplier”). For the purposes of this Agreement, “Oneka” shall mean any of Oneka Technologies Inc. (“Oneka Canada”), Oneka Technologies US Inc. (“Oneka USA”), Oneka Technologies Chile SPA and 9320-9054 Québec Inc. (doing business as Oneka technologies) and their respective affiliates and subsidiaries.
  2. The accompanying purchase order and any attachments to it (the “Purchase Order”) and these Terms (collectively, this “Agreement”) comprise the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral, with respect to the subject matter of the Purchase Order. In case of any conflict between the Terms and a Purchase Order, the terms set out in the Purchase Order shall prevail. This Agreement expressly limits Supplier’s acceptance to the terms of this Agreement. Fulfilment of this Purchase Order constitutes acceptance of these Terms. These Terms prevail over any terms or conditions contained in any other documentation and expressly exclude any of Supplier’s general terms and conditions of sale or any other document issued by Supplier in connection with this Agreement. These Terms shall also apply to any replacement or repaired Goods provided by Supplier hereunder.

2. Delivery of Goods and Performance of Services.

  1. Supplier shall deliver the Goods in the quantities and on the date(s) specified in the Purchase Order or as otherwise agreed in writing by the parties (the “Delivery Date”). If no delivery date is specified, Supplier shall deliver the Goods within thirty (30) days of Supplier’s receipt of the Purchase Order.
  2. If Supplier fails to deliver the Goods in full on or before the Delivery Date, Oneka may (a) terminate this Agreement immediately by providing written notice to Supplier and Supplier shall indemnify Oneka against any losses, claims, damages, and reasonable costs and expenses directly attributable to Supplier’s failure to deliver the Goods on the Delivery Date; or (b) make alternate arrangements for the production or transportation of the Goods or Services. Supplier will reimburse Oneka for any additional costs identified by Oneka which it incurs in purchasing replacement Goods or Services or in arranging for alternate transportation.
  3. Subject to Section 2.5, whenever an actual or potential reason (including labor disputes), delays or threatens to delay the timely performance of the Purchase Order, Supplier agrees to immediately notify Oneka in writing of all relevant information and shall make and pay for all necessary changes to fulfill its obligations under the Purchase Order and mitigate the potential impact of any such delay. Oneka has the right without incurring any liability, acting reasonably, to cancel any Goods or Services affected by the delay in performance.
  4. Supplier shall pack all Goods for shipment according to Oneka’s instructions, including any terms specified in the Purchase Order. Packages must bear Oneka’s Purchase Order number, show quantity or gross and net weights, and conform to Oneka’s marking requirements. No charges for packaging will be allowed by Oneka unless otherwise agreed in writing. Supplier shall include an itemized packing slip with all shipments that will adequately identify the Goods shipped, including Oneka’s part number.
  5. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Supplier and Oneka, exterior containers shall be marked with the following: (1) address of Oneka’s site and Supplier; (2) Purchase Order number; (3) part number; (4) special markings called for on the Purchase Order; (5) quantity; and (6) where applicable, Supplier code or Supplier identification number. Every article of foreign origin (or its container), if any, imported into Canada and comprising part of the Goods shall be marked in accordance with all applicable marking laws, rules and regulations.
  6. Supplier shall deliver all Goods to the address specified in the Purchase Order (the “Delivery Location”) during Oneka’s normal business hours or as otherwise instructed by Oneka. Supplier must provide Oneka prior written notice if it requires Oneka to return any packaging material. Any return of such packaging material shall be made at Supplier’s risk of loss and expense.
  7. Supplier shall provide the Services to Oneka as described and in accordance with the Purchase Order and in accordance with these Terms.
  8. Supplier acknowledges that time is of the essence with respect to Supplier’s obligations hereunder and the timely delivery of the Goods and Services, including all performance dates, timetables, project milestones and other requirements in this Agreement.

3. Quantity

If Supplier delivers more than the quantity of Goods ordered, Oneka may reject any excess Goods. Any such rejected Goods shall be returned to Supplier at Supplier’s sole risk and expense. If Oneka does not reject the Goods and instead accepts the delivery of Goods at the increased or reduced quantity, the Price for the Goods shall be adjusted on a pro-rata basis.

4. Cessation of Production

Supplier shall give Oneka at least one hundred eighty (180) days prior written notice of the permanent discontinuance of production of the Goods or Services covered by the Purchase Order (the “Discontinuance Period”), provided however that compliance with this provision shall in no way relieve Supplier from its obligations under the Purchase Order during the Discontinuance Period.

5. Shipping Terms

Goods will be shipped in accordance with the transportation instructions on the face of this Purchase Order unless otherwise pre-approved in writing by Oneka. If the shipping terms are not specified on the Purchase Order, the Goods shall be shipped F.O.B. (Incoterms 2020) to the Delivery Location. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Oneka reserves the right to change the F.O.B. point to be the Supplier’s facility instead of Oneka’s facility at any time before shipping. The Purchase Order number must appear on all shipping documents, shipping labels, invoices, correspondence, and any other documents pertaining to the Purchase Order.

6. Title and Risk of Loss

Unless otherwise specified in the Purchase Order, title and risk of loss passes to Oneka upon delivery of the Goods at the Delivery Location. Supplier bears all risk of loss or damage to the Goods until delivery of the Goods to the Delivery Location.

7. Inspection and Rejection of Non-Conforming Goods

Oneka has the right to inspect the Goods on or after the Delivery Date, at all reasonable times and places, including during production (upon 5 business days’ written notice to Supplier). Oneka, at its sole option, may inspect all or a sample of the Goods, and may reject all or any portion of the Goods if it determines the Goods are non-conforming or defective. If Oneka rejects any portion of the Goods, Oneka has the right, effective upon written notice to Supplier, to: (a) rescind this Agreement in its entirety; (b) accept the Goods at a reasonably reduced price; or (c) reject the Goods and require replacement of the rejected Goods. If Oneka requires replacement of the Goods, Supplier shall, at its expense, as soon as reasonably practicable, but in no case longer than the original lead time for the delivery of the Goods in question, replace the non-conforming or defective Goods and pay for all related expenses, including, but not limited to, transportation charges for the return of the defective goods and the delivery of replacement Goods. Deliveries of replacements shall be accompanied by a written notice specifying that such Goods are replacements. If Supplier fails to timely deliver replacement Goods, Oneka may replace them with goods from a third party and charge Supplier the cost thereof and terminate this Agreement for cause pursuant to 20. Any inspection or other action by Oneka under this Section shall not reduce or otherwise affect Supplier’s obligations under the Agreement, and Oneka shall have the right to conduct further inspections after Supplier has carried out its remedial actions.

8. Price

The price of the Goods and Services is the price stated in the Purchase Order (the “Price”). If no price is included in the Purchase Order, the Price shall be the price set out in Supplier’s published price list in force as of the date of the date hereof. Unless otherwise specified in the Purchase Order, the Price includes all packaging, transportation costs to the Delivery Location, insurance, customs duties and fees and all applicable taxes, including all harmonized sales tax, goods and services tax, provincial tax, value added tax, use, excise or similar taxes (“Applicable Taxes”). All Applicable Taxes, payable by Oneka will appear as separate items on invoices. No increase in the Price is effective, whether due to increased material, labour, or transportation costs or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Oneka.

9. Invoices

Supplier’s invoices must be made separately for each Purchase Order and must include Oneka’ Purchase Order number and part number, the Supplier’s part number, a full description of the Goods and/or Services, the quantity, unit price and total Price, and the Delivery Location. Supplier shall issue an invoice to the undersigned Oneka entity on or any time after the completion of delivery and only in accordance with these Terms. Oneka shall not be obligated to pay for any Goods and Services if the invoice for such Goods and Services is received more than twelve (12) months after the receipt of the Goods or Services. Oneka shall pay all properly invoiced amounts due to Supplier within sixty (60) days following Oneka’s receipt of such invoice, unless otherwise specified in the Purchase Order, except for any amounts disputed by Oneka in good faith (the “Payment Period”).

10. Set-Off

Without prejudice to any other right or remedy it may have, Oneka reserves the right to set-off at any time any amount owing to it by Supplier against any amount payable by Oneka to Supplier any other agreements between the parties.

11. Payment Dispute

In the event of a payment dispute, Oneka shall deliver a written statement to Supplier within the Payment Period, listing all disputed items and providing a reasonably detailed description of each disputed item. Amounts not so disputed are deemed accepted and must be paid, notwithstanding disputes on other items, within the period set forth in this Section 11. The parties shall seek to resolve all such disputes expeditiously and in good faith. Supplier shall continue performing its obligations under this Agreement notwithstanding any such dispute.
