Terms & Conditions

1. BUYER’S TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
mqsource.com (“MQSOURCE”), a division of Master International Corporation, desires to provide its Buyers with prompt and efficient service.However, to negotiate individually the terms and conditions of each contract would substantially impair MQSOURCE ability to provide such service. Accordingly,Products furnished by MQSOURCE are sold only on the terms and conditions stated herein. Notwithstanding any terms or conditions of Buyer’s order, any sale by MQSOURCE to Buyer is expressly made conditional on Buyer’s agreement to MQSOURCE Terms and Conditions. Any conflicting, additional or different statements or
terms listed on the Buyer's purchase orders, invoices, confirmations or other Buyer generated documents, whether heretofore or hereafter submitted, are of no effect.

2. DELIVERY.
Title to all Products shall pass to Buyer upon delivery to Buyer’s carrier, or common carrier. MQSOURCE shall not be liable for delays in delivery or for failure to perform due to any causes, including, without limitation, acts of God, acts or omissions of Buyer or civil or military authorities, fires, strikes, epidemics, quarantine restriction, flood, earthquakes, riot, war, delays in transportation or inability to obtain necessary
labor, materials or supplies. In the event of any delay, the contractual date of delivery, if any, shall be extended for a period equal to the time lost as a consequence of such delay without penalty to MQSOURCE. MQSOURCE shall be entitled to refuse or to delay shipments for failure by Buyer to pay promptly any payments due MQSOURCE, whether on this or any other contract between MQSOURCE and Buyer. MQSOURCE shall have the right to deliver all Products covered hereby at one time or in portions.

3. ACCEPTANCE AND CANCELLATION OF ORDERS.
All orders are subject to acceptance in writing by MQSOURCE. Any written acknowledgement or receipt of an order shall not, in and of itself, constitute such acceptance. Orders accepted by MQSOURCE may be cancelled by Buyer only upon written agreement of MQSOURCE. In the event of cancellation or other withdrawal of an order for any reason, and without limiting any other remedy which MQSOURCE may have as a result of such cancellation or other withdrawal, reasonable cancellation or restocking charges shall include all expenses incurred and commitments made by MQSOURCE, and shall be paid by Buyer to MQSOURCE.
Buyer requests to reschedule are subject to acceptance by MQSOURCE in its sole discretion. Orders may not be cancelled or rescheduled after the order has been submitted by MQSOURCE to the shipment carrier. MQSOURCE reserves the right to allocate sales and limit quantities of selected products among its Buyers in its sole discretion. Product specifications and availability are subject to change without prior notice.

4. RETURNS.
Buyers must notify MQSOURCE in writing of any shortages, damage or defects within ten (10) days of the date delivered. Returns due solely to customer preference or error will normally be accepted only if received within thirty (30) days of the date delivered, and will be subject to a restocking fee at the discretion of MQSOURCE (for orders shipped within the United States, typically 15% plus shipping costs. Orders shipped outside the United States or unusual restocking situations may vary).

Parts specified as Non-Cancellable/Non-Returnable (NCNR) at the time ofquote or sale are not returnable, as those parts are purchased from a manufacturer specifically on Buyer’s behalf and may not be returnable by MQSOURCE to the manufacturer.

No return will be accepted without a Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number, which can be obtained by contacting Customer Service.

Return freight/shipping charges must be prepaid by the Buyer; MQSOURCE will not accept COD shipments. If any Products are returned without preauthorization from MQSOURCE or if delivery of any Product is refused, MQSOURCE will immediately apply an appropriate restocking fee at our discretion, plus shipping costs. Products that were shipped as Non-Cancellable or Non-Returnable will be held awaiting Buyer’s instructions for ten (10) days after which MQSOURCE may deem the Products abandoned and dispose of them, without crediting Buyer’s account.

Credit for returned items will be issued at the discretion of MQSOURCE after inspection by MQSOURCE Receiving Department. Only Products originally shipped from MQSOURCE will be accepted as returns. All returned Products should be in the original packaging and in unused condition (unless they are defective). ESD or moisture sensitive Products should not be opened except under controlled conditions (unless they are defective). To facilitate inspection of shortages, damages or defects, MQSOURCE may require additional information from the Buyer, such as descriptions, photos, or other information or cooperation. Factory
defects may require additional time for inspection by the manufacturers, and some parts may need to be shipped directly to the manufacturer.

5. PRICES AND TAXES.
Orders are billed at the prices in effect at the time of shipment. Prices are exclusive of taxes, impositions and other charges, including sales, use, excise, value-added and similar taxes or charges imposed by any government authority, international shipping charges, forwarding agent's and broker's fees, bank fees, consular fees, and document fees. In the event MQSOURCE receives notification from the manufacturer after an order has been accepted but prior to shipment that the price of the Product has increased, MQSOURCE shall be entitled to increase the price of the Product commensurate with such increase, and the Buyer shall either accept such price increase or terminate the order.

6. TERMS OF PAYMENT.
All payments must be made in the currency billed on the original invoice. Credit cards accepted include major credit cards, purchase cards, and major bank debit cards including MasterCard, VISA and American Express.
