Terms of Sale

  1. GENERAL. These terms and conditions of sale (these “Terms”) are the only terms which govern the sale of the goods (“Goods”) between you (“Buyer”) and Athea Laboratories (“Athea”). These Terms (collectively, this “Agreement”) comprise the entire agreement between Buyer and Athea, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. These Terms prevail over any of Buyer’s general terms and conditions of purchase regardless whether or when Buyer submitted any purchase order or such terms. Fulfillment of Buyer’s order does not constitute acceptance of any of Buyer’s terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend these Terms.
  2. REGULATIONS. All herbicides, insecticides and disinfectants offered for sale by Athea® are subject to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act. Athea will assist in the sub-registration of these pesticide Goods for sale under a distributor’s own private label. Individual states also have regulations governing the sale, distribution and use of pesticide Goods, fertilizers and soil conditioners. It is the responsibility of the distributor to obtain the necessary registrations and permits required by each state. Athea assumes no responsibility for the registration of these Goods with the various states, and may require proof of state registration as a condition of sale. FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS THE REPACKAGING, RELABELING OR ANY OTHER ALTERATION OF REGISTERED PESTICIDE GOODS.
  3. CANCELLATION. No order may be canceled or altered by Buyer, except on terms and conditions accepted by Athea. Athea may cancel Buyer order at any time prior to shipment for any reason, including, for example if Buyer i) fails to pay any amount when due under this Agreement and such failure continues for 30 days after Buyer’s receipt of written notice of nonpayment; (ii) has not otherwise performed or complied with any of these Terms, in whole or in part; or (iii) becomes insolvent, files a petition for bankruptcy or commences or has commenced against it proceedings relating to bankruptcy, receivership, reorganization or assignment for the benefit of creditors.
  4. DELIVERY. All orders, including drop shipments, are shipped freight prepaid and added to the invoice, FOB Milwaukee, WI, except for authorized allowances for volume shipments. Title and risk of loss passes to Buyer upon delivery. All delivery dates are approximate. To ensure shipping/receiving dock space for raw material arrivals, Athea will ship your order as quickly as possible upon completion, even if prior to a “requested date”. Buyer’s exclusive remedy for Athea’s non-delivery of the Goods shall be limited to Athea’s replacing the Goods within a reasonable time or adjusting the invoice respecting such Goods to reflect the actual quantity delivered.  Any additional freight charges that are billed to Athea will, in turn, be billed to distributor.  Examples of such charges include, but are not limited to, charges for lift gate, hazardous fee, high cost location, notification of delivery, or inside deliveries. 

The following special packaging or services result in extra service charges:

5 and 6 gallon pails, 25 lb and 50lb fiber drums$ 2.50
20 gallon drums$20.00
Overpacks$0.80 per case
All FedEx and UPS Ground Shipments are subject to a $1.25 per package service charge
  1. STORAGE. If Goods are not shipped within 15 days after notification to Buyer that they are ready for shipping, for any reason beyond Athea’s reasonable control, including but not limited to Buyer’s failure to give shipping instructions, Athea may store such Goods at Buyer’s risk, and the Buyer shall pay all handling, transportation and storage charges at the prevailing commercial rates upon submission of invoices therefor. Due to extended lead times of certain Goods, shipping is splitting orders to ship what is available and backordering delayed Goods. This may result in additional shipping charges. Many carriers are sending freight back to shipper after one attempt at delivery. If your place of business or ship to address is closed when your order is delivered we will pass any shipping, handling, storage, or other related charges that Athea receives directly along to you.
  2. RETURNS. No returns accepted without prior authorization. Claims or adjustments of any kind must be made within 10 days of invoice date. Returns will be subject to a restocking charge of $30 or 20% of invoice, whichever is greater.
  3. CHANGES TO GOODS. Athea may at any time, without notice, make such changes in the formulation, appearance or manufacture of Goods as necessary in the opinion of Athea. Athea may also furnish suitable substitutes for materials unobtainable because of priorities or regulations established by governmental authority or non-availability of materials from suppliers.
  4. WARRANTIES. Athea warrants its Goods to be free of defects in materials or formulation for 1 year from delivery, that they conform to Athea’s published specifications and that they were produced in accordance with and conform to applicable laws and regulations (including but not limited to the Fair Labor Standards Act and regulations promulgated thereunder). In the event of any breach of any such warranty, Athea will, at its option, replace any affected Goods returned FOB Athea’s facilities, or refund the purchase price thereof. Such replacement or refund shall be Athea’s sole responsibility, and Buyer’s exclusive remedy, for any breach of warranty. THIS WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED; AND ATHEA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

IN NO EVENT SHALL ATHEA’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE TOTAL OF THE AMOUNTS PAID TO ATHEA FOR THE GOODS SOLD HEREUNDER or $500, WHICHEVER IS LESS.
  6. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. All non-public, confidential or proprietary information of Athea, including but not limited to specifications, samples, patterns, designs, plans, drawings, documents, data, business operations, customer lists, pricing, discounts or rebates, disclosed by Athea to Buyer, whether disclosed orally or disclosed or accessed in written, electronic or other form or media, and whether or not marked, designated or otherwise identified as “confidential” in connection with this Agreement is confidential, solely for the use of performing this Agreement and may not be disclosed or copied unless authorized in advance by Athea in writing.
