1. The Agreement
This agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into between Global FIA, Inc., a Washington corporation (“Seller”) and the quoted party in Sales Quotations or the invoiced party in issued Invoices or Commercial Invoices (“Buyer”). This Agreement, together with the sales quotation (“Quote”) and / or Invoice (“Invoice”) issued by Seller to the Buyer, sets forth the terms and conditions for the sale by Seller and the purchase by Buyer of the merchandise (“Merchandise”) identified on the Quote and / or Invoice.
The Quote is an offer to sell the Merchandise and becomes a binding contract on the terms and conditions herein when accepted by the Buyer by Buyer’s signature on the Sales Quotation or by issuance of a Purchase Order issued by the Buyer. Alternatively, the Invoice is a record of sale and becomes a binding contract on the terms and conditions herein when the invoice is paid by the Buyer. No revision of this Quote or the Invoice or any of the terms and conditions hereof shall be valid unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Buyer and Seller, and no condition stated by Buyer in acceptance of or acknowledging this Quote or payment of the Invoice shall be binding upon Seller if in conflict with, inconsistent with, or in addition to the terms and conditions contained herein unless expressly accepted in writing by Seller (an “Amendment”). If there is an inconsistency between the Amendment and the Sales Quotation, the terms of the Amendment shall control.
Prices in effect at time of shipment of the merchandise shall prevail. All prices quoted by SELLER are subject to correction or change. Prices do not include freight, shipping, handling fees and/ or duties, any present or future sales-, use-, excise-, value-added- or similar taxes. Where applicable, such taxes shall be billed as a separate item and paid by Buyer. A standard shipping charge is applied to each invoice for goods to cover the material preparation, packaging, freight and/or any additional costs associated with each shipment based on value and/or weight of the shipment. Additional charges for local delivery may also apply. Export orders may be subject to other special pricing. All prices are quoted in US dollars (US$).

b. have become publicly known, without fault on the part of Recipient, subsequent to disclosure by Seller of such information to Recipient;
c. is required by law to be disclosed to a government agency provided that Buyer gives notice thereof before disclosure in such a time as to allow Seller the opportunity to prevent the disclosure thereof through proper legal means; or
d. have been received by Buyer at any time from a source other than Seller lawfully having possession of such information and the right to disclose the same.
There shall be no use or exhibition of the Merchandise by Buyer in a public manner and no resale of the Merchandise by Buyer without the application of these terms and conditions on the new owner of the Merchandise.
Buyer may disclose Confidential Information to employees of Buyer who are reasonably necessary to Buyer’s use of the Merchandise and the Confidential Information and who are bound by written agreements with Buyer to maintain the Confidential Information in confidence and under terms no less restrictive than as provided herein.
6. No Grant of License
This Agreement shall not be construed to grant any license or other rights except as specified herein. The obligations of Buyer shall continue for a period of five (5) years from the signature date hereof.

8. No Changes
Buyer shall not reverse engineer, decompile, modify or alter Software supplied.

Buyer shall not be able to commercialize any of the technology related to the Merchandise or other Confidential Information.
Buyer shall not assign, transfer or hypothecate this Quote or Invoice or any part hereof without obtaining the prior written consent of Seller.
Any waiver by Seller of strict compliance with any of the provisions hereof shall not be deemed a waiver of any other provisions hereof and shall not be deemed a waiver of any of Seller’s rights, privileges, claims, or remedies, nor of Seller’s right to insist on strict compliance thereafter.
a. This Quote and any documents referenced to on the face hereof constitute the entire agreement between the parties, and all prior agreements, written or oral, relating to the subject matter hereof are superseded by the terms hereof. Such terms may be modified only by a writing signed by both parties.
b. The provisions of this Quote or Invoice are severable and in the event any provision is held to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
c. It is understood that Buyer is not an employee or agent of Seller and that Buyer shall have no power whatsoever to bind Seller in any way in any dealings between Buyer and third parties and shall not attempt or purport to do so.
d.
