- Acceptance and Delivery. We shall not be responsible for any delay in our performance beyond our control or beyond the control of our suppliers. The parties agree that, unless otherwise agreed to in writing and signed by both parties, shipping dates are approximate and that time is not of the essence. All orders by you constitute offers to purchase which are subject to acceptance or rejection by us in Omaha, Nebraska and any contract for the sale of goods by us is formed and performed in Nebraska. Our acceptance of any order from you is expressly conditional upon the terms and conditions set forth herein and we expressly limit our acceptance of your order to such terms and conditions. Any additional or different terms proposed by you, whether oral, written or electronic are expressly rejected. Notwithstanding any other quoted delivery time, we shall ship merchandise ordered by you within 180 days or cancel the order for such merchandise.

If an item is backordered, you may cancel such order at any time by providing notice of cancelation to us.
- Payment Terms. Payment terms shall be governed by the terms on the packing slip or invoice and the credit terms extended by us, if any. Any such credit terms may be revoked by us at any time. Payment shall be due and payable on the date so specified. Past due balances remaining unpaid will be subject to a delinquency charge at the rate of 1½ percent per month or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less; and you shall pay all our costs of collection of past due amounts, including but not limited to attorney fees and court costs. If credit terms are extended to you, you hereby grant a security interest in the merchandise purchased by you and all proceeds from the sale or disposition of such merchandise and appoint us as your attorney-in-fact to execute on your behalf any Uniform Commercial Code financing statements we deem reasonably necessary to perfect our security interest. You agree to pay $40.00 per check on all returned or insufficient funds checks. We agree and acknowledge that you tender payment for each order and we are authorized to charge your credit card or other charge account (whether we are or a third party is the creditor) only as of the day we ship the order and only in respect to the merchandise shipped. We have no authorization or right to payment prior to the day we ship the merchandise ordered by you.
- Warranty and Risk of Loss. We shall, at our election, either repair, replace, or refund the purchase price, exclusive of shipping and handling charges, for any merchandise which is defective in workmanship or material and for which you make a claim within five (5) days after receipt of the merchandise. When making such a claim, you must submit both the original packing slip and the defective merchandise itself (or a sample thereof), unless these conditions are waived by us in writing. This paragraph constitutes our sole obligation as to the merchandise, and you acknowledge that this paragraph sets forth your exclusive remedy for any breach of warranty or other duty related to the merchandise or quality thereof. Any refund for merchandise shall not include shipping and handling, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing. At our discretion, we may charge a restocking fee, not to exceed twenty-five percent (25%) for returned merchandise. Title to the merchandise passes to you at, and you bear all risk of loss from, the time the merchandise is loaded onto common carrier to be shipped to you, regardless of whether we pay freight.

OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU.
- Nonwaiver of Defaults. Each shipment made under any order shall be treated as a separate transaction, but in the event of any default by you, we may decline to make further shipments without in any way affecting our rights under such order. If, despite a default by you, we elect to continue to make shipments, or accept further orders from you, such action(s) shall not constitute a waiver of any default by you, or in any way affect our legal or equitable remedies for any such default, or of any default at any prior or subsequent time. Any refund, credit, gift certificate or discount due you may be offset against amounts owed to us.
- Personalized Product. If your order includes personalization of product or the printing or other reproduction of trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, graphics, images, messages or business symbols ("Marks"), you hereby grant to us the non-exclusive right and license to use such Marks on the products and to cause the products to be produced with the Marks.

Any such resale activity without our prior written authorization will be regarded by us as, inter alia, infringement or misappropriation of our trademarks, trade dress, copyrights, and other intellectual property and a deceptive trade practice, and we reserve the right to exercise all rights, remedies and measures available in the event of a violation of this paragraph.
