Terms of Use

1. ORDER OF PRECEDENCE

The following are the terms and conditions (the “Terms”) under which Radisys Corporation and its direct and indirect subsidiaries (collectively, “Radisys”) purchase products (including software and software licenses) and services (collectively, “Products”) from other parties (“Sellers”). All requests for quotations, purchase orders and offers to purchase and/or license Products from Sellers made by Radisys are made subject to these Terms. To the extent that any quotation, order acceptance, confirmation, invoice or other document of a Seller contains conflicting, differing or additional terms from these Terms, these Terms will control and all such conflicting, differing or additional terms are rejected by Radisys and shall have no effect. A Seller’s shipment of, or acceptance of Radisys’ payment for, Products shall conclusively affirm Seller’s assent to these Terms. These Terms, in combination with the price and quantity terms agreed to by Radisys and Seller, contain the complete and final agreement, and supersede any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements, between Radisys and Seller as to the purchase of Products from Seller by Radisys. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Radisys and Seller are parties to a written agreement signed by Radisys and Seller that is in effect at the time that a Radisys order for a Product is accepted by Seller and such agreement covers the purchase of such Product by Radisys from such Seller, then such agreement shall control over these Terms.


2. SHIPMENT/DELIVERY

Time is of the essence and substitutions will not be accepted. Seller shall ship and deliver Products strictly in accordance with the specification(s), schedule, quantities, and other requirements specified by Radisys (Radisys’ “Order”). Delays in shipments, including the reasons therefore, shall be reported immediately by Seller to Radisys. Radisys reserves the right to cancel any Order for any Product in whole or in part if Seller should fail to ship and deliver in accordance with the terms of the Order. Shipments shall be DDP (Radisys Designated Location) INCOTERMS 2000. Title to, risk of loss of and duty to insure the Products shall transfer from Seller to Radisys upon delivery of the Products to Radisys. Product shall be transported by carrier(s) as specified by Radisys.


3. EARLY CANCELLATION

Radisys may cancel any Order or portion thereof upon written notice to Seller delivered to Seller at least 30 days prior to the scheduled delivery date for the cancelled Products without cost and with no liability to Seller. Radisys may cancel any Order or portion thereof with less notice to Seller, in which event Radisys’ sole liability will be to pay to Seller a reasonable amount to compensate Seller for materials, if any, that cannot be reused or resold.


4. PACKAGING AND PACKING

Seller shall be responsible for proper packing and packaging of any goods purchased hereunder, so as to prevent damage to and deterioration of the goods, secure the lowest transportation rates and comply with carrier tariffs. Seller shall separately number all cases, packages, and other shipping containers and place an itemized packing slip bearing the Radisys’ Purchase Order number, line item number, Radisys part number and any revision marker corresponding to the contents of such shipping container on each such container. Charges for preparation, packing, crating, and cartage are included in the Product prices agreed to by Radisys and Seller.


5. PRICE WARRANTY, INVOICES, TAXES AND PAYMENT

Seller warrants that all prices of all Products sold by Seller to Radisys are not greater than the lowest prices at which such Products have been sold by Seller to any third party as of the date such Products are sold to Radisys. Seller shall issue a separate invoice for each delivery of Products and shall not issue any invoice prior to the scheduled or actual date of delivery, whichever is later. Due dates for payment of invoices shall be computed from the date of receipt by Radisys of a correct invoice for Products already delivered to Radisys, or from the date of receipt of the Products which are the subject of a correct invoice which is received by Radisys in advance of such Products, as applicable, and shall be deemed made on the date Radisys mails a check or otherwise initiates such payment. Payment of all invoices by Radisys shall be due in 45 days, applying the provisions of the preceding sentence.


6. INSPECTION AND ACCEPTANCE

Payment shall not constitute acceptance of Products. All Products sold by Seller to Radisys are subject to inspection and/or test by Radisys and/or its agent(s) to the extent practical at all times and places, including the period of manufacture and, in any event, prior to final acceptance. Seller agrees to permit access to its facilities at all reasonable times for inspection of Products by Radisys’ agents or employees and will provide all tools, facilities and assistance necessary for such inspection at no additional cost to Radisys. This right of inspection, whether exercised or not, shall not affect Radisys’ right to revoke acceptance or pursue other remedies if defects or nonconformities are discovered at a later date, notwithstanding that any defect or nonconformity could have been discovered upon inspection. In the event that Products do not comply with applicable specifications, Radisys shall have the option to reject and return all such nonconforming Products, or a part thereof, even though less than a commercial unit, and Seller agrees to pay or reimburse Radisys for all costs or expenses incurred in returning such nonconforming Products, and Seller shall reimburse Radisys for any purchase price paid by Radisys to Seller for such nonconforming Products. No goods returned as non-conforming shall be replaced without a new order from Radisys. Radisys’ rights under this paragraph shall be in addition to all other rights of Radisys under these Terms or under applicable law.

Seller warrants that all Products sold by Seller to Radisys are new, that Seller has conveyed good title to such Products to Radisys, and that such Products are free from all liens and encumbrances, in each case at the time such Products are delivered to Radisys. Seller further warrants that all Products sold by Seller to Radisys, at the time such Products are delivered by Seller to Radisys and for a period of twenty-four months thereafter, are and will remain: (1) free from defects in design, material and workmanship, (2) in conformity with the applicable Product specifications, designs, drawings, samples or other descriptions furnished or specified by Radisys, and (3) merchantable and fit for the purpose for which intended.

The foregoing warranties are in addition to all other applicable warranties, whether express, implied or statutory, and shall survive any inspection of, delivery of, acceptance of or payment for the Products, as well as any expiration or termination of these Terms. All of these warranties shall run to the benefit of Radisys and its successors and assigns.


8. INDEMNITY

Seller agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Radisys, its affiliates, successors, assigns, and customers against all suits at law or in equity and from all liabilities, costs, expenses (including attorney’s fees) and damages arising from any actual or claimed infringement of patents, trademarks, service marks, trade names or copyrights with respect to Products sold by Seller to Radisys or arising from any actual or alleged misappropriation or wrongful use of any trade secret or confidential information involving any such Products, and to settle or defend, at Seller’s expense, any suits based thereon. Seller is relieved of such obligation to settle, defend, indemnify and hold harmless if the actual or claimed infringement is based solely upon Seller’s compliance with detailed designs or written specifications supplied by Radisys which could not be complied with in the absence of such infringement. Seller further agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold Radisys harmless from all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, or expenses of any kind, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of breach by Seller of any warranties, covenants, or obligations of Seller under these Terms.

Radisys may make changes in the method of shipment or packing and place of delivery, inspection or acceptance of any Products ordered from Seller at any time prior to the scheduled delivery date for such Products. If any change made pursuant to this Section 9 increases Seller’s costs, the parties shall mutually agree to an equitable adjustment in the prices to account for such increased costs, provided that Seller has provided Radisys with written notice of such increased costs within fifteen (15) days from the date Seller receives notification of the change.


10. CANCELLATION/TERMINATION
