Terms and Conditions of Sales

Acceptance, Agreement to Buy, Payment.  This sales order ("Order") is subject to acceptance by Optovue, Inc. ("Optovue") with its principal place of business in Fremont, California.  Acceptance by Optovue shall be deemed to have occurred if Optovue does not advise the person or entity identified in the "Bill To" box on the front of the Order ("Buyer") to the contrary within three (3) business days of receiving a signed Order.  During the three-day period following the signing of the Order, Buyer may cancel the Order by notifying Optovue in writing at the address shown below or as indicated in the Order, or by telephone directly to a staff at Optovue.  After the three-day period, this Order shall constitute a firm and binding agreement ("Agreement") of Buyer to buy and of Optovue to sell the products and/or software licenses covered by the Order, and shall not be cancelable by either party without the agreement of the other party, unless the other party breaches a material obligation described in the Order. Buyer may cancel Agreement after shipment prior to installation and return all products and systems for a full refund less a 10% restocking fee.  Buyer may cancel Agreement within 90 days after installation and initial training and return all products and systems for a full refund less a 20% restocking/installation fee.  Buyer will receive no refunds for returns after 90 days post installation and initial training. Payment is due per terms set forth on the front of the associated sales order.  Payment may be made by check or wire transfer, except for the first 10% of the purchase which may be paid by credit card.  Unpaid balance due that is more than thirty (30) days from date of installation and training is subject to interest of 1½ % per month.  This is an annual percentage rate of 18% per year.

Installation and Training.  Installation and training services are provided for in each sale unless specified otherwise.  These services will be scheduled at the mutual convenience of Buyer and Optovue as soon as possible after Buyer has received the products.  Installation services provided for on this Order are the services that in Optovue's experience are sufficient to install the Optovue product(s) in an environment complying with the requirements described under "Domestic Warranty Terms and Conditions", and for the basic operation of the device in a clinical setting.  Optovue personnel do not and are not responsible for training site personnel on interpretation of scans or images, nor are they responsible for any diagnosis of scans or images, as these are the domain and responsibility of a trained and licensed clinician. Initial training is included with the system price.  Additional training is available, and may be subject to a charge.
