Terms of Sale
Contract terms: These are the contract terms and conditions (“Terms”) under which our products and services are provided. These Terms, together with our quotation (if any), create the contract (“Contract”) between the parties for the purchase, sale and use of products and/or services. The Contract between us is created when any one of the following is deemed to have occurred: (i) an order is received, (ii) payment for any part of an order is received, (iii) any part of an order is delivered, (iv) the box containing the product is opened, or (v) the product or service is used. If any conditions within the Contract documents conflict with each other, we will give them the following priority: the quotation then these Terms.
Delivery: We will try to meet the delivery dates specified in your order, depending on availability and any lead times that may apply. Sometimes orders are delivered in installments. If orders are delivered in installments, a separate invoice will be provided for each delivery. Delay in delivery of any installment shall not relieve Customer of Customer’s obligations to accept remaining deliveries. Once an order has been placed, it cannot be canceled. If delaying the date of delivery would be helpful, please contact Customer Services to see if we can reschedule your delivery. All our products are sold FOB our facility, freight will be added to the invoice. Products are deemed delivered when accepted by any commercial carrier at our facility. At this point you become responsible for risk of loss and damage. If any product is lost or damaged while being transported, we will try to help you in dealing with the carrier. We do not clear products for import into any country. Doing so is solely your responsibility. Title to products will pass to you upon receipt of product by the carrier.
Inspection and Returns: We want you to receive any product in satisfactory condition. Products that are damaged or defective upon on delivery may be returned for replacement if you contact Customer Services within 5 days from the date of product receipt. When contacting Customer Service, you will be provided instructions for returning the products and you will be given information on receiving replacements. If you do not contact us within this five-day period, the products will be deemed accepted, but you will not lose any warranty rights. Custom products made in accordance with your specifications can only be returned if the custom product does not conform to specifications. In any such case, we will, in our sole discretion, either replace the product or issue a refund for an amount not to exceed the price paid for the product. Shipping charges will not be credited.
Price: The price for products and services is shown in our quotation to you. If we do not provide you with a quotation, the price will be the list price that applies to your country on the date the order is received. Our prices do not include any taxes (including VAT), duties, levies or other government fees that may apply to your order. If applicable, payment of any taxes, duties, levies or other government fees are your responsibility. If paid by us, the cost will be added to your invoice. You are also responsible for standard delivery and handling charges for each shipment, if any. These charges will be added to your invoice.
Payment: Invoices, unless paid sooner, are due within 30 days from the invoice date in the currency specified in our invoice. Each order is a separate transaction, and you may not set-off payments from one order against another. If you are late in making payment, without affecting our other rights, we may suspend delivery or cancel the Contract, reject your future orders, and charge you a late-payment charge, from the due date until paid, at the rate of one percent (1%) per month (12% per year) or, if less, the maximum amount allowed by law. You agree to pay this late charge when demanded. If we appoint a collection agency or an attorney to recover any unpaid amounts, we can charge you and you agree to pay all reasonable costs of collection, including all associated reasonable attorneys’ fees.
Credits and Refunds: At our discretion, we may issue a product credit or refund for the product value and shipping charges. No product credit shall be available for use if a past due balance is outstanding on the account. Any product credit not used within six months of the date of issue shall expire.

Agreement in Good Faith Concerning Use and Distribution of Arrayed cDNA Clones
You are being provided with IMAGE Consortium [LLNL] cDNA clones (CLONES) and/or associated products (PRODUCTS) (referred to collectively as “IMAGE MATERIALS”), in order to advance the public interest and to advance the objectives of the institutions that developed the original libraries from which these clones were derived (Originators). The Originators are the beneficiaries of, and may independently enforce, this Agreement.
Use of Image Materials
By accepting IMAGE MATERIALS you are agreeing in good faith to the following terms. If you are unable to agree to these terms, you must immediately return IMAGE MATERIALS along with all copies and replicas thereof.
(A) You will use the IMAGE MATERIALS in compliance with all applicable laws, governmental regulations and guidelines, including National Institutes of Health guidelines or their equivalent, and any regulations or guidelines pertaining to research with humans, or animals, or with recombinant DNA. (B) You may use CLONES to produce PROGENY, and to create DERIVATIVE PRODUCTS. You may use IMAGE MATERIALS, PROGENY, and DERIVATIVE PRODUCTS for commercial or non-commercial purposes, except for the purpose of redistribution
of CLONES or PROGENY. Accordingly, you may transfer CLONES or PROGENY to additional parties only if 1) this document in its entirety accompanies CLONES or PROGENY, and 2) you transfer CLONES or PROGENY at no cost to such additional parties. “PROGENY” means an unmodified descendant from CLONES or any comparable bacterial stock derived from CLONES (STOCK). “DERIVATIVE PRODUCTS” means any modification or product of CLONES or PRODUCTS that is not a PROGENY or a STOCK. (C) You will include the unique and specific identifier of each arrayed clone (which was initially assigned by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, California, and accompanies the IMAGE MATERIALS) in data pertaining to the IMAGE MATERIALS submitted to public databases and in resulting publications. This nomenclature consists of the term "IMAGE Consortium CloneID" followed by a five to seven digit number. You will refer publicly (including but not limited to electronic and print versions of articles and databases) to these arrayed cDNA clones as the "IMAGE Consortium [LLNL] cDNA Clones", and will reference the following publication: "The IMAGE Consortium: An Integrated Molecular Analysis of Genomes and their Expression," Lennon, G.G., Auffray, C., Polymeropoulos, M., and Soares, M.B.  Genomics 33, pgs. 151-152. In INTERNET/World Wide Web publications and databases, you agree to provide electronic referencing (e.g. 'anchors' and/or 'hotlinks') to the IMAGE Consortium home page, currently located at URL http://image.llnl.gov.
(D) you agree that the image materials are experimental in nature and are being provided without warranty, express or implied, including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or freedom from infringement of any patent or other proprietary right of a third party. (E) you agree to hold harmless and indemnify the regents of the university of California, Lawrence Livermore national laboratory,
the department of energy, the U.S. Government, the originators of the library from which clones were arrayed, the provider of the image materials and persons acting on their behalf, for any claim asserted by a third party related to your possession, use, storage, or disposal of the image materials.
(F) You understand that the ownership of the unarrayed cDNA libraries from which clones were arrayed is retained by the Originators of those libraries. Any new patentable developments or inventions first made by any party using the arrayed clones will remain the property of the inventing party. This Agreement does not constitute the Originators’ waiver of any patent rights.
