Reseller Terms of Sale
These reseller terms and conditions of sale apply to purchases of Lantronix® branded products made directly from Lantronix, Inc. and the resale of such products, unless both parties have signed a written contract covering the purchase and resale of the products, in which case the terms and conditions of the contract will govern to the extent they are inconsistent with these terms. These terms and conditions do not apply if the Buyer is buying products for its own internal end use.
Purchases made from authorized distributors or resellers will also be subject to terms and conditions of sale as may be separately established by each such distributor or reseller, which are not binding upon Lantronix unless otherwise expressly agreed to. These reseller terms and conditions of sale are as in effect at the time of publication and are subject to change at any time.
Acceptance of Terms
These general terms and conditions of sale govern the sale or licensing by Lantronix of all goods and services (“Products”) furnished to Buyer hereunder, whether such sale or licensing is effected by paper-based transactions or via e-mail or other forms of electronic data interchange or electronic commerce, and represents the entire agreement between Buyer and Lantronix with respect thereto. Buyer’s receipt or acceptance of delivery of any of Lantronix Products for resale will constitute its acceptance of these terms and conditions. No addition or modification to these terms and conditions will be binding on Lantronix unless agreed to by Lantronix in writing. Lantronix objects to and rejects other terms and conditions that may be proposed by Buyer or that appear on or are referenced in Buyer’s purchase order or requisition that are in addition to or otherwise not consistent with these terms and conditions.
All prices published by Lantronix or quoted by Lantronix’ representatives may be changed at any time without notice. All prices quoted by Lantronix or Lantronix’ representatives are valid for 30 days, unless otherwise stated in writing. All prices for the Products will be as specified by Lantronix or, if no price has been specified or quoted, will be Lantronix’ price in effect at the time of shipment. All prices are subject to adjustment on account of specifications, quantities, raw materials, cost of production, shipment arrangements or other terms or conditions which are not part of Lantronix’ original price quotation.
Taxes and Other Charges
Prices for the Products exclude all sales, value added and other taxes and duties imposed with respect to the sale, delivery, or use of any Products covered hereby, all of which taxes and duties must be paid by Buyer. If Buyer claims any exemption, Buyer must provide a valid, signed certificate or letter of exemption for each respective jurisdiction.
Terms of Payment
Unless otherwise agreed by Lantronix in writing, payment shall be net thirty 30 days from the date of invoice. If Buyer fails to pay any amounts when due, Buyer shall pay Lantronix interest thereon at a periodic rate of 1.5% per month (or, if lower, the highest rate permitted by law), together with all costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements and court costs) incurred by Lantronix in collecting such overdue amounts or otherwise enforcing Lantronix’ rights hereunder. Lantronix reserves the right to require from Buyer full or partial payment in advance, or other security that is satisfactory to Lantronix, at any time that Lantronix believes in good faith that Buyer’s financial condition does not justify the terms of payment specified. All payments shall be made in U.S. Dollars.
Delivery; Cancellation or Changes by Buyer

Lantronix will have the right, at its election, to make partial shipments of the Products and to invoice each shipment separately. Lantronix reserves the right to stop delivery of Products in transit and to withhold shipments in whole or in part if Buyer fails to make any payment to Lantronix when due or otherwise fails to perform its obligations hereunder. All shipping dates are approximate only, and Lantronix will not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from any delay in delivery or failure to deliver which is due to any cause beyond Lantronix’ reasonable control. In the event of a delay due to any cause beyond Lantronix’ reasonable control, Lantronix reserves the right to terminate the order or to reschedule the shipment within a reasonable period of time, and Buyer will not be entitled to refuse delivery or otherwise be relieved of any obligations as the result of such delay. Products as to which delivery is delayed due to any cause within Buyer’s control may be placed in storage by Lantronix at Buyer’s risk and expense and for Buyer’s account. Orders in process may be canceled only with Lantronix’ written consent and upon payment of Lantronix’ cancellation charges. Orders in process may not be changed except with Lantronix’ written consent and upon agreement by the parties as to an appropriate adjustment in the purchase price therefore.

Credit will not be allowed for Products returned without the prior written consent of Lantronix.
Title and Risk of Loss
Notwithstanding the trade terms indicated above and subject to Lantronix’ right to stop delivery of Products in transit, title to and risk of loss of the Products will pass to Buyer upon delivery of possession of the Products by Lantronix to the carrier; provided, however, that title to any software incorporated within or forming a part of the Products shall at all times remain with Lantronix or the licensor(s) thereof, as the case may be.
