TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE TERMS: For open accounts, a 2% discount is allowed if payments are made within ten days from the date of invoice. Payments for invoices are due within 30 days unless otherwise noted. If the amounts 30 days past due on a the monthly statement, are not paid in full within 10 days following delivery of the statement, the customer shall pay a late payment charge, equal to 1.5 % of the amounts in arrears, for each month in which such amounts remain unpaid. This late payment charge is intended as liquidated damages for failure to pay amounts when due, and represents damages for the time amounts are withheld plus reasonable administrative costs of collecting and accounting for unpaid amounts. The customer understands and acknowledges that separate calculation of actual damages for each instance of late payment would be extremely difficult and impracticable, and further acknowledges that the foregoing provision for liquidated damages is reasonable under the circumstances existing as of the date hereof. If legal action is necessary to collect amounts due, including amounts due as liquidated damages, it is agreed that the prevailing party is entitled to reasonable attorneys fees and/or collection costs. All films, artwork, transparencies, files, disks, etc., remain the property of provider until payment is received. In no event shall provider's liability regarding this sale exceed the price of the labor and film sold. Provider will not be liable for any damages for failure to deliver within the requested time, but will use its best efforts to make delivery within such time. 1. QUOTATION. A quotation not accepted within 30 days is subject to review and may be changed. 2. ORDERS. Acceptance of orders is subject to credit approval and contingencies such as fire, water, strikes, theft, vandalism, acts of God, and other causes beyond the provider's control. Cancelled orders require compensation for incurred costs and related obligations. 3. EXPERIMENTAL WORK. Experimental or preliminary work performed at customer's request will be charged to the customer at the provider's current rates. This work cannot be used without the provider's written consent. 4. CREATIVE WORK. Sketches, copy, dummies, and all other creative work developed or furnished by the provider are the provider's exclusive property. The provider must give written approval for all use of this work and for any derivation of ideas from it. 5. ACCURACY OF SPECIFICATIONS. Quotations are based on the accuracy of the specifications provided. The provider can re-quote a job at time of submission if copy, film, tapes, disks, or other input materials don't conform to the information on which the original quotation was based. 6. PREPARATORY MATERIALS. Artwork, type, plates, negatives, positives, tapes, disks, and all other items supplied by the provider remain the provider's exclusive property. 7. ELECTRONIC MANUSCRIPT or IMAGE. It is the customer's responsibility to maintain a copy of the original file. The provider is not responsible for accidental damage to media supplied by the customer or for the accuracy of furnished input or final output. Until digital input can be evaluated by the provider, no claims or promises are made about the provider's ability to work with jobs submitted in digital format, and no liability is assumed for problems that may arise. Any additional translating, editing or programming needed to utilize customer-supplied files will be charged at prevailing rates. 8. ALTERATIONS/CORRECTIONS. Customer alterations include all work performed in addition to the original specifications. All such work will be charged at the provider's current rates. 9. PREPRESS PROOFS. The provider will submit prepress proofs along with original copy for the customer's review and approval. Corrections will be returned to the provider on a master set marked "O.K.," "O.K. with corrections," or Revised proof required" and signed by the customer.

Any press time lost or alterations/corrections made because of the customer's delay or change of mind will be charged at the provider's current rates. 11. COLOR PROOFING. Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job is to be expected. When variations of this kind occur, it will be considered acceptable performance. 12. OVER-RUNS or UNDER-RUNS. Overruns or under-runs will not exceed 10 percent of the quantity ordered. The provider will bill for actual quantity delivered within this tolerance. If the customer requires a guaranteed quantity, the percentage of tolerance must be stated at the time of quotation. 13. CUSTOMER'S PROPERTY. The provider will only maintain fire and extended coverage on property belonging to the customer while the property is in the provider's possession.
