All Products (the “Products”) purchased from E-ONE MOLI by a customer (the “Customer”) following receipt of a copy of these terms and conditions of sale shall be made in accordance with these terms which, together with the quotation made by E-ONE MOLI, shall constitute an agreement between the parties unless otherwise agreed to in writing. These terms may be changed by E-ONE MOLI from time to time by delivering revised sales terms to the Customer by email; fax; or mail.
1 ACCEPTANCE OF CONDITIONS
1.1 E-ONE MOLI’s acceptance of a purchase order is conditional on the Customer’s agreement to these terms in lieu of those in the Customer’s purchase order except as specifically acknowledged in writing by E‑ONE MOLI. E‑ONE MOLI’s failure to object to provisions contained in any communication from the Customer shall not be deemed a waiver of the provisions contained in these terms. Any changes in these terms must specifically be agreed to in writing by an authorized signatory of E-ONE MOLI before becoming binding on either E-ONE MOLI or the Customer. All orders or contracts must be approved and accepted by E-ONE MOLI.
2 PRICE AND TERMS OF PAYMENT
2.1 Prices in the quote are exclusive of any applicable sales, use, excise, value-added, business transfer, and like taxes and all customs and import-export duties, fees, and charges without limitation, and Customer shall pay all such amounts. Any such amounts shown on the Quote are shown for convenience only and in the event of any error, omission or change to these amounts, Customer shall be responsible for and shall pay the full amounts of the Quote.
2.2 All Quotes are subject to 100% up-front payment, unless credit approval has been granted in writing by E-ONE MOLI. In the event that E-ONE MOLI agrees to extend credit and payment is not received within terms, all unpaid amounts will bear interest at a rate equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month (19.56% per annum) and the highest rate permitted by law, of the outstanding payment from the date due until the date paid.
2.3 As the cost of goods sold is very sensitive to the market cost for raw material, E-ONE MOLI reserves the right to propose a price adjustment even for accepted orders beyond 90 days from the date of delivery. If a mutually agreed price change cannot be established, E-ONE MOLI or Customer reserves the right to cancel the existing order.

Products shall be delivered EXW as defined by Incoterms 2020, E-ONE MOLI’s delivery location either at the factory in Taiwan or at the warehouse in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada, and Services shall be delivered as incurred. If within ten (10) days after delivery Customer does not advise E-ONE MOLI in writing that the Products and Services or any portion thereof has been rejected (including the reasons therefore), the Products and Services in their entirety shall be deemed to have been accepted by Customer. E-ONE MOLI retains a security interest in the Products until the full price for the Products and Services are paid. Delivery dates set forth in the Quote are estimates only and depend upon prompt acceptance by Customer of the Quote and upon E-ONE MOLI’s inventory of the Products or their components and the availability of provision of Services. E-ONE MOLI endeavour to meet the stated delivery dates for the Products and Services but will not be liable to Customer or any other party for any delay in delivery of the Products and Services.
