CRANE PAYMENT INNOVATIONS, INC (hereafter referred to as CPI)
STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. Binding Contract. This document refers to every Crane Payment Innovations Invoice (herein referred to as “CPI”) for the purchase and sale of the goods (herein referred to as the "Goods"). This Invoice will become a binding contract on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein when the buyer accepts any shipment of the Goods. This Invoice is not an acceptance or confirmation of any other terms. This invoice is subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and no others unless there is a signed overriding agreement between the parties. Any additional or different terms or conditions proposed by Buyer are hereby rejected.
2. Complete Agreement. The terms and conditions set forth on the front and back of the CPI Invoice constitute the final agreement of the parties, are a complete and exclusive statement of the terms of that agreement, and supersede any previous or contemporaneous communications, representations, or agreement, whether oral or written, with respect to the Goods. The terms and conditions of this Invoice cannot be changed or amended except by a written agreement signed by CPI.
3. Price Revision. Unless otherwise expressly stated by CPI, prices are subject to revision without notice. Goods will be supplied and invoiced at the prices in effect at time of shipment. If any price revision is not accepted, CPI, without liability and at its option, may either continue to supply Buyer at the contract price and terms then in effect or terminate this contract, either in its entirety or with respect to future shipments of the Goods affected as of the effective date of the price revision or any later date by so notifying Buyer in writing.
4. Credit. Whenever CPI in its sole judgement has any doubt as to Buyer's credit-worthiness or financial responsibility, CPI may require payment in cash in advance of shipment.
5. Separate Contracts. Each shipment to Buyer shall constitute a separate and independent contract and shall be separately invoiced and paid for when due, without regard to subsequent deliveries. CPI shall have the right at all times, among other remedies, either to terminate the contract or to suspend further deliveries upon failure of the Buyer to pay for any one shipment when it becomes due or when the Buyer is in default of any other sales agreement between Buyer and CPI. Delay or default in any delivery or shipment shall not relieve Buyer obligation to accept remaining deliveries. Upon such termination or suspension by CPI, all Buyer's obligations to CPI shall be due and payable immediately.
6. Shipping and Delays. Delivery terms specified in sales contract. Unless otherwise specified by Buyer, means of shipment shall be at sole discretion of CPI.

7. Inspection. Buyer shall examine each shipment upon its arrival at Buyer's facilities and shall promptly notify CPI in writing of any shortage, loss or damage apparent under reasonable examination. Failure by Buyer to forward such notification to CPI within 5 days after arrival shall constitute an absolute and unconditional, waiver of all claims for any such shortage, loss or damage.
8. Limited Warranty and Disclaimer. CPI warrants only that at the time of delivery and for a period of (12) calendar months after delivery or the period stated in this invoice, if different, the Goods shall be free of defects in workmanship and materials, PROVIDED that this warranty shall not apply:
(i) to damage caused by Buyer's or any third party's act, default or misuse of the Goods or by failure to follow any instructions supplied with the Goods. This includes misuse of the product through vandalism, fraud or any other kind of malicious interference.
(ii) where the Goods have been used in connection with or incorporated into equipment or materials the specification of which has not been approved in writing by CPI.
(iii) to Goods which are altered, modified or repaired in any place other than a CPI Factory or by persons not expressly authorized or approved in writing by CPI.
(vi) to protect modifications required because of Coin or Currency changes mandated by any governmental body.
