1. PRICES AND PAYMENT
Stone-Link Products are sold by the piece or pallet. The price to be paid to Stone-Link for the Stone-Link Products shall be the list price of Stone-Link in effect from time to time, plus any applicable:
a. Sales tax, value added tax or excise taxes;
b. Transportation, delivery or insurance charges;
c. Import of custom duties.
All prices are in Canadian currency unless indicated and are subject to change without notice except those in written purchase orders that have been accepted by Stone-Link.
Payment is due thirty (30) days after invoice on approved credit. Any delinquent payment shall bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum. Payment is due prior to delivery of or upon pick-up by the Customer of the Stone-Link Products ordered by the Customer. The Customer agrees to be responsible for all collection costs, including without limitation court costs and legal fees, in connection with the collection of delinquent payments. Stone-Link reserves the right to require full or partial payment in advance of other payments under terms it considers appropriate.
If requested by the Customer and agreed to by Stone-Link, Stone-Link will deliver Stone-Link Products to the Customer. Delivery dates submitted are approximate. Stone-Link will use its best efforts to meet the approximated delivery date provided the Customer supplies all necessary information, but Stone-Link shall not be held responsible for failure to do so. Stone-Link shall be subject to no penalty or liability to meet a delivery date and shall in no event be held responsible for loss of profits or damages incurred by the Customer or other inconsequential damages that may result therefrom.
3. DAMAGE OR LOSS IN DELIVERY, PICK-UP, DISPLAY OR STORAGE
All Stone-Link Products ordered by the Customers (except for individual pieces that comprise less than a full pallet) are prepackaged in shrink-wrap by Stone-Link prior to delivery or pickup. The Customer acknowledges and agrees to assume all risks associated with the pickup of the Stone-Link Products ordered and shall be solely responsible for taking all precautions to ensure the safety of persons (other than Stone-Link employees) assisting in the pick up of the Stone-Link Products and ensuring that a vehicle suitable to transport the Stone-Link Products is used for pick-up. The Customer agrees to be liable for all loss or damage to persons (other than Stone-Link employees unless such damage or loss is the fault of the Customer) or the vehicle used for transport during pick-up, however caused, including but not limited to personal injuries arising from the dislodgement of Stone-Link Products from their shrink-wrap, and agrees to indemnify and save harmless Stone-Link from any and all damage or claim for loss or damage to persons or property caused by reason of the use, possession or installation of Stone-Link Products.
Stone-Link shall not be responsible for damage to Stone-Link Products during delivery by Stone-Link or pick-up by the Customer. Claims for shortages or incorrect Stone-Link Products must be made in writing within five (5) days after receipt of the delivery by the Customer, and failure to give Stone-Link written notice within that period shall be unqualified acceptance of the Stone-Link Products and a waiver of all claims. After delivery or pick-up, the Customer agrees to be liable for all loss or damage to the Stone-Link Products ordered, however caused, and assumes all of the obligations and risks of an absolute owner and agrees to indemnify and save harmless Stone-Link from any and all loss or damage or claim for loss or damage to persons or property caused by reason of the use, possession or installation of Stone-Link Products, including but not limited to personal injuries arising from the dislodgement of Stone-Link Products from their shrink wrap.
If the Customer rejects delivery or pick-up of any of the stone-Link Products ordered or shall fail to make timely payment therefor, as herein provided, or shall repudiate this agreement with respect to any purchase order accepted by Stone-Link, then with respect to any order for Stone-Link Products not accepted by the Customer at any such time, Stone-Link may, without prejudice to other remedies which Stone-Link may have by reason thereof, withhold the delivery of such products, stop delivery of such products in possession of a carrier or other bailee and recover damages for non-acceptance or repudiation, including all handling, warehouse and other costs associated with the Customer's failure to accept such delivery or repudiation of any such purchase order.
The Customer acknowledges and agrees that it shall be liable for all damage or loss to Stone-Link Products, persons or property caused by the display or storage of Stone-Link Products whether displayed or stored by the Customer (that is a supplier of Stone-Link Products) for resale or during the Customer's intended use, and agrees to indemnify and save harmless Stone-Link from any and all loss or damage or claim for loss or damage to Stone-Link Products, persons or property caused by reason of such display or storage.
Title to and ownership of all products shall remain with Stone-Link at the Customer's risk until all amounts due to Stone-Link from the Customer from time to time or to any assignee of the payments to be made hereunder or any renewals or extensions hereof, or under any judgement secured, are paid in full and all terms hereof are performed, at which time absolute title shall pass to the Customer.
Subject to compliance with the Terms herein, Stone-Link provides a lifetime warranty on its Products to the original purchaser of the product for residential use. Any materials installed and maintained according to our installation instructions, and subject to normal wear that prove defective, will be replaced without cost.
This warranty does not apply to:
a. Any damage to Stone-Link Products resulting from negligence, misuse, accident or improper installation, either intentional or otherwise;
b. Any Stone-Link Product damaged without fault of Stone-Link;
c. Splitting or other breakage that may be caused by frost heaving, overloading, structural settlement, snow removal equipment, discoloration or staining caused by
improper installation of sealers, chemicals, paints, rust, plants or oxidation; or
d. The effects of deicing salts and chemical deicers which are detrimental to the surface of concrete products, nor for colour fading caused by natural weathering from the
elements and the natural occurring phenomenon of efflorescence inherent in all quality products with a high cement content.
Colour matching cannot be guaranteed and replacement labour and shipping are not included. Proof of purchase is required. Stone-Link Products may change without notice from time to time. Stone-Link agrees to replace, at Stone-Link's choice (a comparable substitute of equal or greater value when a warranty product is no longer in production) any defective Stone-Link Product. Any warranty claims by the Customer should be made, by postage prepaid to Stone-Link, with a written explanation of the problem and proof of purchase. Any such claim should include the contact name, address and phone number of the Customer. Stone-Link shall not be liable for any expenses incurred by the Customer in an attempt to correct any allegedly defective Stone-Link Product.
The Customer has been advised to inspect all Stone-Link Product samples before purchase. All colours used for Stone-Link Products come with a variegated blend of lighter and darker shades to provide true individual character to each stone. Al Stone-Link Products come with varying surface textures, high relief and low relief, uneven surfaces may allow ponding to occur within the stone. All sizes, dimensions, thickness and weights set out in the Stone-Link Product specifications are nominal and any references to "Approx. Total Sq. Feet" on invoices, quotes or Stone-Link Product specifications means the approximate coverage area of the number of pieces purchased based on nominal dimensions including the joints between individual pieces when installed in accordance with Stone-Link's recommended installation instructions. Accordingly, no warranty is made that each piece or pallet of a single type of Stone-Link Product is the exact colour, size, dimension, thickness, weight or surface area as set out in the Stone-Link Product specifications, invoices or quotes, or that the Customer will be provided the exact surface area in pallet or pieces of the Stone-Link Product ordered for the Customer's intended coverage area.
It is understood that Stone-Link has no special knowledge of the Customer's requirements and Customer agrees that the Stone-Link Products are ordered because of the independent determination by the Customer of its suitability for intended use.

STONE-LINK'S TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS, CAUSES OF ACTION, LIABILITIES AND DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LAW SHALL NOT, IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES OR FOR ANY REASON, EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE STONE-LINK PRODUCTS.
