TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
1. Agreement. All of DRIVE ELECTRIC, LLC (DE) sales are subject to these Terms and Conditions. This offer constitutes DE's offer to sell the goods identified in the attached online shopping cart which the Buyer has selected as the items that Buyer agrees to purchase (the "Goods"). The offer to sell and this agreement to purchase is entered into in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, which, when accepted by Buyer below and accepted by DE in accordance with the immediately following sentence, shall constitute a binding agreement between the parties. Acceptance of this offer made by DE shall be deemed to occur upon (a) agreement to these Terms and Conditions by Buyer as indicated by Buyer's agreement below; (b) receipt by DE of Buyer's acceptance in written or electronic form; (c) receipt by DE of payment in full or, if DE separately agrees in writing, in part for the Goods. Any terms and conditions proposed by Buyer in a purchase order or other document from Buyer that are different from, conflict with, or add to this agreement shall be deemed to materially alter this agreement and are objected to and rejected by DE and shall be of no effect on this agreement. As used in this agreement “manufacturer” shall mean the corporation that manufactured the Good, it being understood by Buyer that DE is not an agent of or for manufacturer, that DE and Buyer are the sole parties to this agreement, and that references to the manufacturer herein are for the purpose of explaining generally certain contractual relationships existing between DE and manufacturer with respect to new vehicles.
 
2. a) Price. Buyer shall pay the price for the Goods as listed on the online shopping cart or if there is a conflict, the price as published at the time of this agreement on DE'S website ("Purchase Price"). Unless revoked prior to acceptance, such price shall be valid only for the Goods purchased and covered by this agreement. DE reserves the right to change its prices at any time without notification; provided, however, the price set forth on an accepted Agreement shall be binding on the parties subject to the immediately following sentence. Prior to shipping Buyer's order, DE retains the right to re-quote an order due to any clerical errors or mutual mistake of fact, at which time Buyer shall have the option of accepting said changes or receiving a refund of any moneys paid.  Seller does not warrant tax credits will apply to any particular Buyer and loss of such tax credits shall not be grounds for rescission.  For delivery outside the States of Oklahoma and Arizona, DE does not collect any sales or excise taxes. Buyer is responsible for any sales, excise, licensing, tags, permits, if any are required to be paid in Buyers place of residence or in Buyers place of intended use of the Goods.
b)  Shipping Cost.  All sales are quoted with a shipping cost delivered to Buyer's door. Additional charges may apply for certain shipments with special requirements. Generally no additional charges for shipping will apply if the Goods are being delivered within 10 miles of a metropolitan area of 250,000 people or more. DE shall have the discretion to charge additional reasonable amounts for shipping if DE in its sole discretion determines that the delivery to Buyer does not meet the guidelines as described above.
 3. Payment. Buyer agrees to pay all invoices within fifteen (15) days from the date of invoice. A late charge of one and one-half per cent (1.5%) per month on all invoices over thirty (30) days past due will be charged; this is equivalent to an eighteen per cent (18%) per annum interest charge.  DE shall have the right in its sole discretion at any time to demand cash payment of some or all of the Purchase Price at the time the Agreement is accepted, before shipment or C.O.D.
4. All Sales Final.  Buyer agrees that upon acceptance of this agreement and full or partial payment of funds to DE, ALL SALES ARE FINAL, non-cancelable and, except as provided in Section 8 below, the Goods cannot be returned for a refund or exchange thereafter. 
5. Security Interest. DE shall have a purchase money security interest in the Goods in the event Buyer does not pay the full purchase price.  This security interest also covers, in addition to the Goods, (i) all personal property installed in or affixed to the Goods, including additions and accessories and (ii) proceeds, including insurance proceeds payable by reason of damage to or loss of the Goods.  Buyer's full payment of the Purchase Price shall automatically terminate DE's security interest in the Goods.
6. Shipment Terms. Shipment dates are not controlled by DE.  Upon receipt of funds from Buyer, DE shall place the order with the appropriate manufacturer. It is anticipated and Buyer should expect an order placed in any calendar quarter to be delivered within the following two calendar quarters. While DE shall make reasonable efforts to meet any delivery date(s) requested by Buyer, DE will not be liable for its failure to meet any such date(s).  Buyer may delay delivery only upon written approval of DE. In the event Buyer refuses shipment or delivery, then Buyer shall be responsible for paying an additional $500 shipping fee to DE. If Buyer refuses shipment or delivery a second time, then the purchase shall become undeliverable and after a period of 90 days DE shall then have the right to sell the Goods in any manner DE may deem appropriate and elect such other remedies pursuant to Section 16 below, in DE’s discretion. DE shall not be liable to Buyer in any way for failure or delay in making delivery on any intended or projected delivery date specified by Seller, where such delay arises from causes beyond the control of DE. Buyer acknowledges and affirms that the sales made by DE in the current year may be delivered in the following year.
7. Risk of Loss and transfer of title. Risk of loss transfers to the Buyer at the time of transfer of title.  The Goods shall be insured by Seller, the Manufacturer or the respective freight company while in transit until the Goods are delivered to Buyer.  Transfer of title shall occur upon issuance of the MSO as described in paragraph 26 below. 
8. Damage or Material Defect. If there is any damage to the Goods, shortage in the Goods shipped, or if the wrong Goods are shipped, Buyer must notify DE in writing within three (3) days of receipt of the product including, without limitation, by facsimile, to the address below to request a remedy. DE shall be given an opportunity to inspect the goods and may decide in its sole discretion Buyer's remedy as set forth in Section 11 below. DE will not be held responsible for any claims made by Buyer after three (3) days of receipt of the goods, nor for returns without proper return pre-authorization. In the case that DE elects to replace the Goods, DE will pay the shipping charges to allow Buyer to return the Goods and the shipping charges to deliver the replacement Goods to the Buyer's location specified on the Quote Form. In all other cases, Buyer is responsible for paying the cost of shipping and for fully insuring the Goods. In the case of minor damage, as determined by DE in its sole discretion, DE shall arrange to have an estimate given for the repairs to the Goods by either a representative of DE or by a third party. If DE determines that DE is responsible for the damage or defect, DE shall have the right, at its sole discretion, to either replace the goods with like product, have a third party repair the goods or pay Buyer the amount of the estimated repairs at which point DE shall have no more obligation to Buyer concerning said damage or repairs.
9. Installation. Buyer agrees to follow any and all installation instructions and maintenance guidelines from DE or the manufacturer of the goods before and after installation. DE disclaims all liability for damages or defects arising from improper installation or improper maintenance.
