Terms & Conditions of Sale

在本标准条款和条件(以下简称为“本条款”)中,“卖方”是指向购买方(以下简称为“顾客”)提供商品、材料、设备和/或服务(以下统称为“约定产品”)的Interplex法律实体。

  1. 适用范围。除非顾客和卖方经特别协商签署了协议,否则本条款适用于卖方就约定产品之销售向顾客开具的附有本条款的任何报价单,或者以本条款为附件或提及本条款的任何文件,无论是否无偿,同时本条款也视为立即纳入上述报价单或文件。每份报价单均明确以顾客完全接受本条款为前提。即使顾客有任何标准条款和条件,也以本条款为准。卖方兹反对并拒绝接受顾客提出的任何附加条款或不同条款,包括顾客采购订单、中标函、订单发放、调度文件中所含的此类条款,除非卖方明确对其给予书面同意。卖方履行顾客的订单,不代表接受顾客的任何条款和条件,也不视为修改或变更本条款。本条款或其部分内容如有任何变动、取消或弃权,卖方均有权调整约定产品的价格,以抵消卖方为实施此类更改而预计将产生的费用,并且此类变更必须以书面形式做出并经卖方授权代表正式签署(另外还须完成适用法律所要求的手续)。特此告知:卖方未授权任何他人同意对本条款做出任何变动、取消或弃权,并且将来也不会做出此类授权。无论前述有何规定,若本条款和(a)经特别商订之协议的条款或(b)约定产品销售报价单的条款有不一致之处,则以该特别商订协议或约定产品销售报价单的条款和规定为准。
  2. 接受报价。每份报价单发出后,顾客可在报价单上注明的期限内或截止日期之前接受该报价单,若无注明期限或截止日期,则顾客可在报价单开具日期后三十(30)天内接受。即使有前述规定,卖方在收到顾客对报价单的接受函之前,可随时向顾客发出书面通知,撤回或取消该报价单。顾客不得向任何第三方披露卖方的报价,也不得以任何方式利用该报价来寻求类似产品的报价。顾客如做出以下任一行为,则构成接受报价单及本条款全部内容:(a)卖方收到经顾客签署的报价单或者顾客表示接受报价的其他书面文件;(b)顾客按照与报价单显示价格相同或大体相同的价格,就约定产品发出采购订单;(c)顾客接受约定产品的交付;或者(d)清楚认可有约定产品买卖合同存在的其他行为。若(i)收到非回应报价单的顾客订单,或者(ii)顾客就报价单发出订单或做出书面回复,但该订单或回复违背了该报价单所含条款和/或本条款,卖方有权接受或拒绝。卖方收到回应报价单的订单或回复之后,若在五(5)个营业日向顾客发出书面确认(以下称为“订单确认书”),方可视为卖方接受该订单或回复,并受其约束。在发出订单确认书之前,卖方可随时更正已发出报价单中的印刷错误、文书错误或其他错误或遗漏,而不产生责任。
  3. 定价。除另有说明外,报价均以美元为单位,并且不含关税;各项税费,包括但不限于联邦、州、省和地方税费、货物税、增值税、商品及服务税和/或任何公共机构征收的类似税费,若按法律要求须由卖方缴纳或代收,则在发票中加入该等税费作为卖方的单独收费,由顾客支付,除非顾客在约定产品交付之前向卖方提交有效力的免税凭证。若顾客按要求须从应付给卖方的款项中预扣或扣除任何税费,顾客应尽商业上合理的努力,按相关税务条约规定最大限度减少该税费的金额,并且向卖方提供其税务部门可能会要求提交的凭证,证明已缴纳该项税费,以便卖方申请税收减免。卖方可调整价格,以反映上涨的原材料、金属、燃料、人工、储存、运输成本或其他生产相关成本(包括制造、处理、涂布和电镀成本),以及外汇波动。非标准包装的成本不包含在约定产品的价格内,由此产生的额外成本将单独向顾客收费。卖方在包装待发运的约定产品时会尽合理的谨慎,但卖方对交付后发生的延迟或损坏不承担责任。所报价格基于以下假定情形:(a)各订单均满足约定的最低订单数量要求,并且一(1)年订单总量至少达到顾客预测年度数量的百分之九十(90%);(b)各订单均不会超过约定的最大周产量;(c)确定交付日期时将顾及约定的交付提前期;以及(d)在正常工作时间内开展工作,即周一至周五当地时间朝6晚6(8小时轮班制),不含节假日。如有加班、超量订单或须加急交付,顾客和卖方将另行商定收费。
  4. 交付和数量。除顾客和卖方另有书面协议外,约定产品根据Ex Works(卖方工厂),按《国际贸易术语解释通则》2020版定义。顾客自行承担运输约定产品的风险。交付日期仅为大概日期,不做保证。卖方将尽商业上合理的努力,尽量满足顾客要求的交付日期,前提是顾客遵守卖方的相关交付提前期要求,并且在约定的交付日期前充分提前提供各项必要文件或信息(包括但不限于与卖方书面约定的规格、设计、图纸或蓝图,使卖方能够开展制造工作)。顾客同意:即使未能在预计交付日期之前交货,顾客也没有权利索要补偿,卖方也不因此产生责任。如果在到期交货时顾客出于任何原因推迟或未能接受约定产品的交付,或者由于顾客更改交货点或未及时提供适当的指示、文件、许可或授权,导致卖方未能在交货点交付约定产品,则:
    1. 约定产品视为已经在初始交付日期交付(以下简称为“视为已交付”);
    2. 从视为已交付时起,约定产品灭失、损坏和/或质量下降的风险转由顾客承担;
    3. 卖方可自行决定储存约定产品直至顾客提货,此行为不影响卖方可对顾客行使的任何其他权利,对此卖方无须发出通知,也不承担任何责任,储存相关的风险和费用由顾客单独承担。顾客应负担各项相关成本和费用(包括但不限于分拣、保存、交付、储存、保险和相关行政管理费用等)(以下简称为“储存费用”);
    4. 卖方有权向顾客开具发票,索要约定产品的购买价格以及所有应计的储存费用;
    5. 在顾客不做扣减、全额支付购买价格和储存费用之前,卖方有权拒绝向顾客实际交付约定产品;
    6. 如果在视为已交付的日期后连续两(2)个日历月内,顾客仍未能提取约定产品,卖方有权利采取以下行动 (但不影响卖方按照本条款或根据法律规定可能享有的任何权利或救济):
      1. 提前七(7)天向顾客发出书面通知后,根据本条款规定终止合同,而无须向顾客承担任何责任;并且
      2. 提前十四(14)天向顾客发出书面通知后,通过公开拍卖、财产出让契约或其他方式出售或处理约定产品,并将销售所得首先用于清偿储存费用和因出售或处理约定产品而产生的相关费用,再用于清偿顾客应付给卖方的各笔款项,卖方无须就此对顾客承担任何责任。若销售所得不足以清偿应付给卖方的全部款项,则顾客还须就未偿清的各笔款项对卖方承担责任。

    除顾客和卖方另有书面协议外,卖方交付的约定产品数量可以超出或少于订货数量,增减不超过百分之十(10%),此交付数量即视为构成足量交付。顾客应就实际交付的约定产品数量付款(即约定产品实际交付数量乘以约定产品的单价)。若卖方可取得的资源(包括原材料)、约定产品供应量或生产资料不足,无法满足预计交货计划表,或者发生不可抗力事件时,卖方可自行决定向各顾客分配资源或供应量,并无须对该等顾客承担任何责任。

  1. 所有权及灭失风险。在符合本条款的前提下,在交货点交付约定产品后,约定产品的所有权即转移给顾客,灭失风险也即由顾客承担。为担保支付约定产品的购买价格,顾客特此就其对约定产品享有的任何权利、所有权和权益及其各项增添、替代或修订,以及前述各项的所有收益(包括保险赔偿金),向卖方授予留置权和担保权益,无论约定产品所在何处,也无论此类权利、所有权和权益是已经存在、以后产生还是不定期取得。
  1. 预测和生产计划。顾客应就约定产品的月产量要求向卖方提供六(6)个月的滚动预测(以下称为“预测”),在各滚动预测生效前一(1)个月的第一(1)天提交。各滚动预测的前四(4)个月构成顾客对采购量的承诺,具有约束力,顾客将根据该承诺发出一个或多个采购订单,订购预测中该四(4)个月的相应数量约定产品(以下称为“承诺预测量”)。顾客不得(a)在下一个预测中修改承诺预测量的剩余部分,也不得(b)提交订购数量低于承诺预测量的采购订单。如果顾客不遵守本则规定,卖方有权就顾客少订的数量向顾客开具发票。

    如果顾客对约定产品的需求超出了预测数量,顾客应提前通知卖方,提前通知的期限长短在商业上应当合理,还应顾及约定的各交付提前期,以便卖方采购原材料及制造和交付约定产品。除非卖方以书面形式确认,否则卖方没有义务满足上述额外需求。为免歧义,兹确认卖方将根据顾客订单和现行的交付提前期供货,而非根据滚动预测供货。

  1. 机床。若要求卖方建造、使用机床来为顾客生产约定产品,则除顾客和卖方另有书面协议外,均适用以下规定:(a)机床只能在卖方工厂内使用,未经卖方预先书面同意,不得拆除;(b)只能要求卖方建造及提供约定件数的机床,足够生产约定产品的约定件数;(c)卖方不须为机床或顾客出借用于制造约定产品的任何设备购买保险;(d)若上述机床或设备受损,而卖方无过错的,卖方免于承担赔偿责任;(e)卖家为建造机床(包括但不限于带焊料引脚、压接端子、半导体封装产品和材料的机床)和/或制造约定产品而开发、创造和使用的各项构思、设计、概念、方法、工序、制造技术、商业秘密、专有信息和其他知识产权的各项所有权、权力和权益,由卖方专属所有。若卖方合理认为修理和/或继续使用陈旧机床的成本或风险太高,应及时向顾客发出书面通知,告知需逐步停用该陈旧机床。收到通知后六十(60)天内,顾客应尽商业上合理的努力,与卖方就以下事项达成协议:(i)逐步停用陈旧机床,并且(ii)研发、制造替代机床,用以替换陈旧机床。如果顾客和卖方未能根据此第7则规定达成协议,卖方有权处理陈旧机床并根据本条款规定终止合同;处理机床所产生费用由顾客自行承担,卖方不就机床的处理向顾客承担任何责任或额外义务。“陈旧机床”是指符合以下条件的机床(y)已充分用于生产约定产品的约定件数,或者(z)顾客和卖方以书面形式达成一致,认为该机床不再适合使用。顾客应承担以下各项费用:(I)要求改装机床所产生的费用,(II)因正常磨损而修理或更换机床所产生的费用,以及(III)要求缩短交付提前期和/或加快交付速度而产生的费用。如顾客提出的额外产能要求超过了约定产品的约定件数,则可能需要或产生额外的机床、交付提前期和生产件批准程序成本,相关条款由顾客和卖方商订。
  2. 付款条件。除非经卖方另行同意并在卖方发票中另有指定以外,付款期限是发票开具日期之后净三十(30)天,顾客应全额付款,不以任何申索、反申索或抵消为由做任何扣减或延期支付。顾客如对卖方开具的任何发票有金额或准确性方面的异议,应在发票日期后十四(14)天内提起,否则视为顾客已确定接受发票是完整、准确的。卖方同意各项交付和工作执行均以卖方对顾客的预先授信审批为前提,卖方可自行决定批准、拒绝或修改该授信。卖方提供的任何授信条件可随时更改或撤销,无须发出事先通知或给予理由。若卖方自行判断顾客在任何时候的财务状况不足以保证生产、工作执行或交付,或万一顾客违反任一项费用或收费的付款义务或违反其他义务,卖方可在不发出事先通知的情况下采取以下行动:(a)要求预付全额或部分款项,或提出其他付款条件,作为交付的条件;(b)取消已经同意给予顾客的任何折扣或授信;(c)卖方可暂停、推迟或取消任何交付义务或履行合同的其他义务;和/或(d)按适用法律允许的最大金额收取利息,直至卖方收到全额付款。若(i)因顾客未付款而暂停、推迟或取消,导致产生任何费用或损失,和/或(ii)为收取逾期款项而产生的任何费用或损失,例如法律费用和汇兑损失等,卖方无须承担责任,顾客也会保障卖方不受损害。顾客支付非重复性费用(例如为特别设计、工程相关工作或生产材料而向卖方支付的费用),不导致任何设计、工程工作或生产材料的所有权转移,除顾客和卖方另有书面协议外,这些所有权由卖方保留。
  3. 免责事件。若有不可抗力事件导致卖方未能履行或延迟履行任何义务,卖方无须承担责任。“不可抗力”是指超出卖方控制的事件或情形,包括但不限于以下各项:(a)异常恶劣的天气或其他天灾;(b)火灾、爆炸或地震;(c)战争、侵略、恐怖主义、破坏行为或海盗行为、暴动或其他民众骚乱;(d)政府法律、指令、限制、禁令或封锁;(e)国家或地区紧急状态;(f)核污染、化学污染或生物污染;(g)疾病爆发、流行病、大流行病、瘟疫;(h)禁制令、罢工、封闭工厂,或其他工业骚乱;(i)无法取得或使用必要交通、电力或基础设施;(j)设备短缺、无法取得或使用必要产品或材料;(k)网络战、勒索软件或其他网络攻击,或者(l)超出卖方控制的其他事由,无论是否与前述事项相似。若卖方无法履行合同义务的情况持续或按合理预计将会持续连续三(3)个月,卖方有权利完全或部分取消先前已确认但受到影响的订单,而无须向顾客承担任何责任。
  4. 保证。在符合本条款的前提下,卖方向顾客保证:约定产品在交付时将符合约定规格,并且在交付日期起一(1)年期限内没有工艺缺陷。顾客应在交付后五(5)个营业日内检查或测试约定产品,以确定有无违反前述保证。若顾客未在上述期限内实施此项检查或测试,或者未在以下期限内发起RMA(定义如下),则视为约定产品符合本条款所含保证。如果某个约定产品不符合前述保证,顾客应在发现不符后五(5)个营业日内及时向卖方发出书面通知,发起退料授权(以下简称为“RMA”)。作为RMA程序的一部分,顾客应向卖方书面告知退料的理由、相关支持数据和其他信息,以及法律依据、索赔金额和意欲退回的约定产品数量和类型。若有遗漏退料相关的任何信息,顾客应协助卖方收集该等信息。如经卖方要求,顾客应预付运费将约定产品(或者卖方要求的样品数)退回到卖方指定的地点。卖方将评估退回的约定产品,以核实保证范围。为取得根据本条款提起索赔或提起与本条款相关索赔的资格,须允许卖方采取以下行动:(a)在双方约定的日期和时间,对顾客、其附属公司和/或其顾客的设施和流程进行检查,以及(b)参与就上述索赔做出的相关根本原因分析。若卖方证实有任何退回约定产品不符合本条款所含保证,卖方须付的唯一责任是修理或更换该约定产品,或者给予购买价格相应的抵用额度或折扣,具体由卖方自行选择。除非允许卖方完成本则规定所述调查,并且卖方在调查完成后对归因于卖方的受损数量和程度给予书面认可,否则对于根据本条款提起或与本条款相关的任何索赔,卖方无须承担责任。卖方提供的修理、更换或重新履行保证并不将延长或续展相应的保证期。以下情况下不适用保证:(i)因顾客或任何第三方疏忽、安装不当、维护不当、错误使用、搬运或操作,或其他不能归因于卖方的事由而导致约定产品受损;(ii)约定产品在运输、储存、安装或使用过程中经受异常状况(包括但不限于机械、电气或热度方面的状况);(iii)在非标准环境中使用约定产品,因而需要产品具有未记载于约定规格中的稳健性;(iv)约定产品是样品、原型、试制和/或非合格产品;(v)因顾客和/或其附属公司,或顾客和/或其附属公司的顾客或供应商提供的材料、设备或机床导致的缺陷;(vi)因顾客和/或其附属公司,或顾客和/或其附属公司的顾客或供应商就约定产品所做设计、规格或指示导致的缺陷;(vii)顾客发现特定缺陷后未在五(5)个营业日内通知卖方;或者(viii)顾客有逾期未付的款项。此外,若顾客或任何第三方未经卖方书面授权,试图修理或更换不合要求的约定产品,本条款所含保证也不适用。本条款所含保证均系排他性的,卖方给予并接受此保证基于此保证代替所有明示或默示的其他保证、条件或条款 (卖方据前述所排除的保证包括但不限于以下各项的相关保证:(w)大规模相同瑕疵、重大瑕疵;(x)适销性和/或品质满意;(y)适用于特定目的、用途或功能,或者(z)无侵权)。
  5. 知识产权。各方保留其在本合同生效前就拥有的各项保密信息和知识产权的所有权。顾客就其保密信息和知识产权向卖方授予一项全球通用、全部付讫、免特许权使用费、非独家的许可,准许卖方根据合同制造、修理、更改或向顾客供应约定产品。卖方在履行合同过程中构思或创造的各项新知识产权,无论是由卖方独力构思、创造,还是顾客也有所贡献,均由卖方专属所有。为达到此结果,顾客同意交付必要的转让文件。若(a)卖方依据顾客所提供规格、图纸、设计或指示制造约定产品、销售和/或供应此类约定产品,以和/或者(b)卖方为便于为顾客制造、销售和/或供应约定产品,而复制顾客提供的任何规格、图纸、设计、标识、标记或符号,或按顾客指示实施此类复制行为,由此产生索赔或有与此相关的索赔,导致第三方对卖方提起任何民事或刑事诉讼,则顾客应当为卖方提供辩护,使卖方不受损害。对于上述索赔产生的各项费用、判决、损害赔偿金或损失,顾客同意进一步保护卖方不受其损害。卖方供应约定产品不代表向买方授予专利权、版权或其他知识产权项下的任何权利或许可,准许其制造或委托他人制造约定产品,无论前述专利权、版权或其他知识产权是现在还是将来由卖方所有或控制。
  6. 责任限制。卖方不就任何利润损失或储蓄损失、处罚或者间接、附带、惩罚性、特殊或衍生性损害赔偿向顾客承担责任,无论该等损害赔偿是否基于侵权行为、违反保证、违约或任何其他法律理论的基础上,即使卖方已被告知或已知悉该等损害赔偿的可能性。

    在适用法律允许的范围内,卖方因与顾客之间所有交易而产生的累积责任,无论是基于违约(包括违反保证)还是侵权行为(包括疏忽或失实陈述)还是根据法规等,绝不超过以下两项中较大的金额:(a)发生索赔事由之前一个日历年度内,顾客就引发索赔的产品已经向卖方支付的总金额;或者(b)伍拾万美元(小写:500,000美元)。为免歧义,兹确认即使卖方与顾客签订其他协议或合同,前述最大累积责任也不增加或扩大。

    顾客理解并同意:卖方的定价已将风险分担考虑在内,这是每份合同的基本要素,即使任一项排他救济或有限救济的基本目的未能达到,也适用此限制。

  7. 顾客指示物料。顾客可指示卖方从顾客指定、委任和/或指示的第三方处获取原材料、部件、设备或服务(以下称为“顾客指示物料”),用于供应约定产品。对于因此类顾客指示物料或因上述第三方未能及时提供物料而产生的任何保证或其他索赔,卖方不对顾客负责。
  8. 索赔通知和时限。除非卖方在顾客获知据称违约行为后三十(30)天内收到书面通知(但违反保证除外,该情况下应在发现缺陷后五(5)个营业日内发出通知) ,并且给予卖方合理的机会去核实及纠正该项违约,否则解除卖方的各项责任;此通知是卖方承担任何责任的先决条件。各索赔相关的任何诉讼应当在顾客就该项索赔向卖方发出书面通知后两(2)年内提起。顾客同意:超过上述时限发出的通知或提起的索赔均视为弃权。
  1. 排除第三方权利。 本条款仅为专属于顾客和卖方的利益而制定。在法律允许的最大范围内,兹排除各项第三方强制执行权。
  1. 保密和隐私。顾客认可:卖方以任何形式向顾客披露的各项技术、运营、商业和财务信息均为卖方的保密信息。与顾客分享此类保密信息不构成所有权转让,也不代表授权顾客披露此类保密信息,也不授予任何性质的相关知识产权。上述保密信息仅做评估用途,不得与任何个人或实体分享,除非该个人或实体受到与卖方之间保密协议的直接约束。若除了与顾客及卖方之间具体协议所拟定交易相关的事宜以外,顾客不再需要使用该等保密信息,则必须在收到书面请求后及时将保密信息返还给信息发送方,并且不得将保密信息用于任何其他目的。根据本条款进行交易时,顾客和卖方均可收集、储存和处理对方的相关个人数据,还可将此类个人数据转移至顾客和/或卖方所属司法管辖区以外区域。顾客同意:为履行本条款下有关出售的约定产品之义务的目的,并在遵守适用的数据保护法前提下,使用和保存此个人数据。
  2. 符合法律规定。协议各方在履行本条款规定义务时,应遵守各项适用法律。若根据本条款交付约定产品或技术须先按照适用法律、法规或条例向政府和/或政府机关申请出口或进口许可,或有进出口管制法律、法规或条例规定的其他限制或禁令,卖方可暂停其交付相关义务和顾客的交付相关权利,直至取得许可,或者限制和/或禁令到期,卖方还可取消与该约定产品相关的合同,而无须对顾客承担任何责任。
  1. 终止。若发生以下任一情形,卖方可向顾客发出书面通知,立即终止任一项合同的全部或部分,而无须承担任何责任,并且卖方根据本条款或法律规定享有的任何权利或救济也不受影响:(a)顾客被提起无力偿债、破产(包括重组)、清算或清盘程序,或者顾客被指定破产管理人或接管人,或者为顾客债权人利益做出任何转让;或者(b)顾客违反本条款任一项规定。若有任一项合同取消、到期或终止,(i)顾客根据合同应支付的所有款项立即到期应付,并且(ii)本条款中,按性质理当在期满后仍然适用的条款和条件将在合同终止或到期后保持有效,包括但不限于以下条款:保证、知识产权、责任限制、索赔通知和时限、保密和隐私、终止、通知、适用法律和司法管辖区,其效力应当继续。
  1. 更改。 各方可随时就约定产品或服务的计划表或范围提议更改。在双方以书面方式达成协议前,卖方没有义务实施更改。书面更改文件将说明对范围和计划表的修改,以及相应的价格、交付时间变更及其他约定条款。
  1. 产品寿命结束。 在项目终止、约定产品逐步淘汰或处于项目寿命尽头(以下称为“EOL”)之前,顾客应当至少提前六(6)个月向卖方发出书面通知。若发生以下任一事件,卖方也可视其为构成EOL:(a)收到书面通知,告知将机床或自动装置转移给其他制造商;或者(b)年度采购量低于顾客在任一生产年度内须采购的约定年度数量的50%。适用情况下,EOL时,双方将通过善意协商,就供应维修零件和/或建立最终库存事宜制定条款。若在六十(60)天内未达成协议,则协议任一方可提前三(3)个月向另一方发出书面通知,终止合同。若需转移机床或自动装置,则卖方在收到书面通知时其供应义务即行终止。终止后,卖方将就未出售的原材料、半成品和产品库存(已购买或已订购)、未付款机床/自动装置、未偿还的退款项及双方同意的其他费用,向顾客开具发票。
  2. 一般条款。顾客和卖方均系独立的立约人,本条款任意内容均不使协议一方为任何目的成为另一方的代理人或法定代表。协议任一方均没有权限代表另一方承担或产生任何义务。如果具司法管辖权法院或将来有任何立法或行政行为认定本条款的任一项规定无效或不可执行,不影响本条款其他规定有效、可执行。卖方若未行使或推迟行使根据本条款享有的任何权利或救济,不构成放弃该项权利或救济;单次或部分行使任何权利或救济,不妨碍行使该项权利或救济的其余部分或将来行使该项权利或救济,也不妨碍行使依据本条款或法律规定享有的任何其他权利或救济。卖方可(a)向其附属公司,或
    (b)在公司改组或重组、合并,或某部门、业务单位或实体的全部或主要资产出售时,经一次交易或一系列相关交易而部分或全部转让或更新其根据本合同享有的权利和应负的义务,无须取得顾客同意。另外,卖方还可向任何其他方转让其订单确认书下的应收账款,无须取得顾客同意。顾客同意签署各项必要文件,使卖方能够完成转让或更新。卖方可将部分工作分包,或向供应商或分包商购买零件、设备或材料,前提是责任仍由卖方承担。未经卖方预先书面同意,顾客不得转让根据本条款享有的权利或应负的义务,未经预先书面同意做出的转让均属无效。
