STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The credit application, product quotation, purchase orders, shipping documents and these terms and conditions of sale constitutes a continuing sale Agreement between Core Health & Fitness, LLC, a Nevada Limited Liability Company (hereafter referred to as “Core”) and Buyer, as set forth at the end of this product quotation Agreement, for the purchase of any product and services to be provided by Core to Buyer. Core sales representatives do not have the authority to change or modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Buyer may provide Buyer’s standard form of purchase order to place orders for product and service, but any terms and conditions on such standard form which are in addition to or inconsistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement will be deemed stricken from such order. If Buyer does not deliver written objection to the terms hereof which are different than those appearing on the Buyer’s purchase order, Buyer agrees to all of Core’s terms and conditions. All purchase orders shall be made or confirmed in writing and are subject to acceptance by Core. The Buyer shall be responsible for all costs and fees incurred by Core for refused shipments, including freight and insurance costs. Orders cancelled less than thirty (30) days from originally scheduled shipment date will be subject to a cancellation fee of 25% of the value of the purchase order.
The prices to be paid by Buyer for all products and services purchased hereunder shall be Core’s standard prices in effect on the date of Core’s receipt of Buyer’s purchase order, less any applicable deductions which may be in effect from time to time. Core reserves the right to change its standard prices and to publish a new price list from time to time and at any time, without prior notice to Buyer. Should any new price result in an increase in the price of any product or services, the increased price shall apply to any Buyer order placed after the effective date of the new price. For orders that are placed for delivery more than ninety (90) days into the future, Core reserves the right to review and adjust the agreed upon pricing within thirty (30) days of fulfilling the purchase order. In this case, the Buyer has the option of canceling the order with no penalties, if the cancellation is in writing and within ten (10) days of the notification of the price increase. Buyer is solely responsible for any prices it charges to its customer. Nothing in this Agreement shall in any way restrict Buyer’s freedom to sell products at prices determined in accordance with its own judgment. Buyer shall be responsible for all sales, use, or other taxes (other than taxes on Core’s income or ownership of property), applicable to Buyer’s purchase of products and/or services. Buyer shall pay such taxes when invoiced by Core or shall supply appropriate tax exemption or resale certificates. Buyer is also responsible for any domestic or foreign forwarding agent or brokerage fees, duties, or other fees and any export licenses which may be necessary to export the products. Seller reserves the right to correct any clerical or mathematical errors at any time.
Core Health & Fitness requires a non-refundable 50% down payment for all custom products. Custom orders have a minimum order quantity of 7 units, orders of less than 7 units will incur a minimum charge. A purchase order for a custom product contractually obligates the Buyer to take delivery. Customers have opportunity to cancel within 7 business days of purchase, any cancellations outside of the 7-business day window will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee. Core, in its sole discretion, may waive the 50% down payment. If Core has waived the down payment, and Buyer thereafter cancels the order, Buyer agrees to pay a 25% cancellation fee related to the custom portion of the canceled order plus an additional amount of 25% of the total value of the canceled order.
F.O.B. shipping point shall be Core warehouse unless otherwise specified. Risk of loss with respect to Core products shall pass to Buyer at the time of delivery of the products to the carrier for shipment. The Buyer assumes all risk involved in the transportation and handling of the equipment or goods once it has left the Core warehouse, including, but not limited to, damage during shipment. The Buyer is advised that inspection should be made of any equipment or goods before accepting delivery. Acceptance of delivery constitutes acceptance of goods. The Buyer must file its own claim for any type of damages directly with the carrier in the event of any loss or damage during transportation, and must make payment for any equipment of goods purchased from Core regardless of any dispute the Buyer may have with any carrier or agents. Core will attempt in good faith to ship on or before any scheduled shipment date. Buyer acknowledges that Core may, from time to time, be subject to manufacturer production or shipping delays. In such event, Buyer agrees that Core may, in its sole discretion, allocate distribution of Core’s products among its customers, notwithstanding the effect such allocation may have on Buyer’s outstanding orders, and Core will not be liable for any damages, however described or arising, for a good faith failure to fill any order or for delay in meeting a scheduled shipment date. Core may provide reasonable notice to Buyer regarding any material delay in shipment. Core may make partial shipments of Buyer’s orders. Such partial shipments shall be separately invoiced and paid for when due, without regard to subsequent shipments. Delay in shipment or delivery of any particular installment shall not alone relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept subsequent installments. Core may provide reasonable notice to Buyer in the event of material delays in connection with partial shipment of an order. Core will use its best efforts to deliver as specified, but in no event will Core be liable for any damage, consequential or otherwise, arising from any failure of Core to meet any delivery date.
Any Custom Products and/or Customer modified Standard Products ordered from Core are non-cancelable and/or non-returnable. Credit may be issued only on those items that are stock items of standard manufacture and in new, salable condition in the original packaging in unused condition, when return is authorized in advance by Core. Any such return shall be at the expense and risk of the Buyer and subject to a 25% restocking charge of the original purchase price.

The buyer may choose to contract with Core to install the purchased product. At the time the order is placed, the buyer will provide Core with an installation date. Core will make reasonable commercial efforts to install the product on or before the installation date. Product held more than 10 days after the installation date at the Buyer’s request will be subject to a 15% restocking fee.

With the exception of Grand Openings, partial installations require the installed product to be paid per the terms of the invoice. If the Buyer chooses to not contract Core to deliver and/or install the purchased product, the standard warranty will be modified as follows: (1) Damage to the purchased product incurred during delivery or caused due to poor or improper installation will not be covered; (2) the portion of the standard warranty not modified will begin to run from the date the product was purchased and not from the date the product was installed; (3) the customer will be responsible to pay the full cost of any repair occasioned by improper delivery or improper installation as determined solely by Core; (4) Customer will indemnify and hold Core harmless from any and all causes of action, suits or claims for damages relating to or arising from a claim of injury by a user of the purchased product in which a contributing cause of the accident resulting in injury is due to improper delivery and/or improper installation of the purchased equipment including failure to bolt or secure all strength equipment to the floor.
It is imperative that equipment is used properly to avoid injury. Buyer agrees that the equipment will not be used in any way other than as designed or intended by the manufacture, specifically including, but not limited to the following: 1) Keep hands and feet clear of moving parts at all times. 2) Read all machine instructional placards and warnings and direct any questions to a qualified fitness professional prior to use. 3) All strength equipment MUST be secured (bolted and tightened) to a solid, level surface to ensure stabilization and eliminate rocking and tipping.
This work must be performed by a licensed contractor and meet Core’s installation instruction requirements. As it pertains to treadmills, Buyer agrees that it is aware of electrical requirements relating to dedicated circuit and plug in configurations; additional information can be found in the owner’s manual.
Payment is per the terms in the Additional Terms and Conditions section of this quote. Upon order acceptance, alternate payment terms may be established per Buyer’s request subject to Core’s normal credit approval process. Products are invoiced at date of shipment from Core warehouse.

Core reserves the right to exercise any of its lawful remedies if Buyer does not make payment when due. Without limiting the provisions of the immediately preceding sentence, Buyer’s failure to pay any invoice for the products and/or services when due shall entitle Core to delay shipment of orders placed by Buyer and, at Core’s option, to cancel any pending orders placed by Buyer. Core shall have the right to offset and deduct from any amounts due Buyer all sums owning from Buyer to Core.
