These terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions“) are incorporated into any quotation, work order, purchase order or invoice accompanying these Terms and Conditions and apply to any and all goods and materials (“Goods“) provided by NewAge Industries, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation (“Seller“), to the customer (“Customer“). These Terms and Conditions shall apply to all Goods sold by Seller to Customer and shall become effective upon the earlier of: (a) Customer issuing a purchase order to Seller; (b) Customer’s receipt of the Goods; or (c) Seller’s receipt of payment in full or in part for the Goods.
2. Acceptance. Any quotation provided by Seller to Customer shall constitute an offer to sell the Goods identified on such quotation in accordance with these Terms and Conditions which, when accepted by Customer, shall constitute a binding agreement between the parties. Customer’s acceptance of any offer by Seller is limited to these Terms and Conditions. Any terms and conditions proposed by Customer in any document that are different from, conflict with, or add to these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed to materially alter the offer and are hereby objected to and rejected by Seller. The Purchase Order, including these Terms and Conditions, shall be deemed accepted by Seller upon the earliest to occur of: (a) receipt by Seller of a purchase order from Customer; (b) receipt by Seller of a copy of Seller’s quotation acknowledged by Customer without alteration; (c) written acknowledgment from Customer of Customer’s acceptance of the terms set forth in Seller’s quotation; (d) receipt by Customer of the Goods; or (e) receipt by Seller of payment in full or in part for the Goods. Cancelation of custom orders will be subject to a cancelation fee. The cancelation fee will be determined by the amount of development and production work done at the time of the cancelation. Custom orders that have been fully completed are non-cancelable.
3. Purchase Price. Customer shall pay Seller the purchase price for the Goods as listed in Seller’s quotation or as otherwise set forth in Seller’s invoice. Seller may change its prices at any time without notification; provided, however, that unless revoked prior to acceptance, prices set forth in Seller’s quotation shall be valid only for the period set forth in such quotation. Seller’s prices are exclusive of insurance, shipping, handling, and taxes. Customer shall have the sole responsibility for payment of all such insurance, shipping, handling, and taxes with respect to the purchase of any Goods. If the sale of Goods is subject to state sales tax, or other charge, Customer shall pay such tax or charge upon the request of Seller. If Customer is a tax-exempt entity, Customer shall present all appropriate documentation for any tax exemption to Seller prior to placing its order.
4. Payment Terms. Customer shall pay all invoices in U.S. Dollars within thirty (30) daysfrom the date of the invoice, unless otherwise specified on the invoice. Accepted payment methods are check, ACH and wire transfer.

Seller is not obligated to extend credit or financing terms to Customer. Seller may in its sole discretion revoke any credit extended to Customer and require payment in full prior to Seller’s delivery of Goods or Services. VISA®, MasterCard® and American Express® are accepted only at point-of-sale, subject to approval. Seller may retain possession of any Goods or refuse to provide any Services until Customer has paid in advance all amounts due to Seller. If Seller retains a collection agency, legal counsel or incurs any out-of-pocket expenses to collect payments from Customer, all such costs will be added to the sums due, will bear interest at the rate set forth above and will be the responsibility of Customer. If Customer fails to pay Seller any amounts when due, Seller may immediately suspend all activity relating to this Agreement and may exercise all of Seller’s rights and remedies. Customer agrees that, other than Seller’s delivery of the Goods and Services, payment to Seller is not contingent on any other occurrence, matter or event including, without limitation, Customer’s receipt of payment from any third party.

With regard to Goods that are returned to Seller, title and risk of loss remains with Customer until receipt and acceptance of the Goods by Seller. All claims for damage and shortage in transit shall be made by Customer with the carrier, and Customer holds Seller harmless for all such claims.
