SALES TERMS

Scope.  These Terms of Sale apply to all sales of products by RC Lighting Inc. (“RC”) to any purchaser (“Buyer“). These terms may in some instances conflict with some of the terms proposed by Buyer. Therefore, acceptance of Buyer's order is made only on the express understanding that to the extent that any of these terms and conditions conflict with any terms of Buyer's order, these terms and conditions will govern. These terms will be deemed accepted by Buyer placing an order, accepting the goods, or tendering full or partial payment. RC's failure to object to provisions contained in any communication from Buyer will not be deemed a waiver of these terms. Any additions to, or deviation from these terms, must be proposed to RC at its office and must be accepted in writing by an officer of RC before such terms will become part of the contract. Buyer is responsible for complying with these terms and for reviewing these terms on a regular basis to ensure that Buyer is aware of changes in these terms.

Payment Terms and Cash Discounts.  Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by RC, no order for any pole product will be accepted by RC unless the full purchase price and all other charges are paid in full with placement of the order. For other (non-pole) products, payment is due 30 days after the invoice date and if payment is received by RC by the 10th day of the month following the invoice date, a cash discount in the amount of 1% will be allowed. Cash discounts apply only to RC products other than pole products and do not apply to any other charges, including without limitation to freight charges. In the event that Buyer cancels an order prior to shipment, then Buyer will be charged a cancellation fee of 50% of the total price of the order. No order may be cancelled after shipment.

Prices.  All prices are subject to change and revision without advance notice. Standard quantities are either the master package quantity or the quantity required for the full discount. Orders for less than standard quantities will be billed at the prices in the Less Than Standard Quantity column regardless of the size of the total order. Orders marked HOLD or HOLD FOR RELEASE will be billed at the prices in effect on the date that shipment is requested. Buyer will pay any and all applicable sales tax or use tax, if any, plus any other applicable federal, state, or local taxes imposed on this sale, excluding tax assessed on RC income.

RC may grant or terminate Authorized Distributor status in its sole discretion. Anyone placing an order who is not an Authorized Distributor will be referred to the nearest Authorized Distributor.

Shipping Costs. Products are sold FOB RC's factory or warehouse of origin. RC will pay the freight costs on individual orders of $1,000 net or greater to one destination in the continental United States.

RC will use carriers of its own choice on prepaid shipments. If another means of transportation is requested, Buyer must pay transportation costs. Individual orders less than $1,000 net will be drop shipped to a destination specified by Buyer within the continental United States with all shipping costs paid by Buyer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all shipments of pole products are F.O.B. point of shipment and will be shipped via ground transport in RC's sole discretion. Buyer will pay RC the cost of shipment, including any export charges or taxes. Buyer will also pay the cost of shipment of the anchor bolts, which may be shipped separately by RC. All costs of insurance, documentation, and bank charges incurred in shipments will be borne by Buyer.

Delivery Date. Any estimated or firm delivery dates or periods are predictions made by RC of the times within which it is likely that the products will be shipped; however, due to the difficulties inherent in predicting future delivery dates or periods, RC does not promise, guarantee or otherwise obligate itself to have products shipped on or before that time. RC will endeavor to meet the estimated or firm delivery dates or periods, but will not be liable in damages or otherwise, nor will buyer be relieved of performance, because of failure to meet them.

Minimum Billing. The minimum billing amount for all orders is $150 net from factory and $100 net from warehouses, plus transportation charges. Orders received for lesser amounts will be invoiced at the minimum billing amount.

MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICING AND INTERNET ADVERTISING POLICY

RC has unilaterally adopted the following Minimum Advertised Pricing and Internet Advertising Policy (“Policy“), which is applicable to buyers of RC products or services (“Buyer“) with respect to Buyer's advertising and sale of such products and services.

1. Definitions:  (a) RC Products means any product or service supplied by RC; (b) Net Price means the stated price less all discounts, premiums, trade-ins, coupons, allowances and free goods or services offered with the RC Products; and (c) Minimum Price (MAP) means the amount established by RC and provided to Buyer from time to time by e-mail or any other means; (d) RC Mark means the RC trademark, the LIGHTCLOUD trademark, and all other trademarks, service marks, trade names or other proprietary designations used in connection with the RC Products; and (e) RC Product Number means any stock-keeping unit (SKU) number or RC catalog number for RC Products and any other number used by RC to identify RC Products.

2. Minimum Advertised Price:  Each Buyer remains free to establish its own resale prices. However, a Buyer may not at any time: (a) advertise or otherwise promote RC Products at a Net Price less than the Minimum Advertised Price (MAP); or (b) sell RC Products to any other person or entity who advertises or otherwise promotes RC Products at a Net Price less than the MAP (whether or not Buyer is aware that the other person or entity intends to advertise or otherwise promote RC Products below the MAP).

3.  Internet Sales and Advertising: Each Buyer remains free to advertise its own products and services. A Buyer may advertise and sell RC Products through the Buyer's own proprietary internet store residing on a URL owned by Buyer. By way of example only and not in limitation, Buyer ABC Company may sell on its own propriety online store residing at www.abc-company.com. In addition, a Buyer may advertise and sell RC Products on Amazon marketplace (www.amazon.com). No Buyer may advertise or sell RC Products on any other websites, including with limitation on www.ebay.com, www.lowes.com, www.sears.com, or other “DIY“ websites. Furthermore, a Buyer may not at any time: (a) advertise or otherwise promote RC products using any RC Mark or RC Product Number on any Google or Bing web site in any manner including without limitation by purchasing Google Adwords or any equivalent Bing advertising service; or (b) sell RC Products to any other person or entity who advertises or otherwise promotes or advertises RC products using any RC Mark or RC Product Number on any Google or Bing web site in any manner including without limitation by purchasing Google Adwords or any equivalent Bing advertising service (whether or not Buyer is aware that the other person or entity intends to advertise or otherwise promote RC Products using any RC Mark or RC Product Number on any Google or Bing web site).

4. Compliance:  RC will apply the following rules in determining compliance with this Policy:

   a.  Where a “coupon,” rebate or a discount for use with RC Products is advertised, the value of the coupon or that discount will be subtracted from the listed advertised price to determine the Net Price.

   b.  Where an offer of “free shipping” or reduced shipping costs applicable to RC Products is advertised, the value of such an offer of reduced shipping costs will not be subtracted from the listed advertised price to determine the Net Price.

   c.  Where an automated system that delivers to resale customers any price or “instant quote” for RC Products by email, in an Internet based ordering system or “shopping cart,” as a “pop-up,” or by any other automated Internet based means, is used, such practices are considered advertising or promotion within the meaning of this Policy and must comply with the Policy.

   d.  Where the MAP price is crossed out, the customer is asked “to call for price,” or any other means is used to indicate that the actual price may be less than the MAP price, such practices are considered advertising or promotion within the meaning of this Policy.

5.  If Buyer violates this Policy, RC reserves the right to require Buyer to refrain from advertising RC Products and to cease advertising or selling RC Products through any Internet website for a period of six (6) months, and Buyer agrees to comply with such requirement. Furthermore, any violation of this Policy will result in the automatic and immediate termination without notice of the license granted under the RC Website Terms of Use to use technical specifications, product literature, and any other materials relating to RC Products that are contained in or made available on the RC website.

6.  Buyer acknowledges and agrees that RC is under no obligation to sell RC Products to Buyer. RC may refuse to accept orders from Buyer if: (a) Buyer violates this Policy more than once in any twelve month period; (b) RC determines that Buyer has flagrantly violated this Policy; or (c) for any other lawful reason.

7.  RC will act unilaterally when executing this Policy and will neither solicit, consider, nor agree to any recommendation, request, or demand of any other person or entity. All matters of interpretation and application of the terms of this Policy will be at RC's sole discretion.

Each Buyer is free to decide independently whether or not to follow this Policy. RC neither seeks, nor will it accept, any assurance of compliance or agreement from Buyer regarding this Policy. Nor will RC discuss any conditions of acceptance related to this Policy. No one other than an officer or director of RC is, has been or will be authorized to modify or alter this Policy, or to bind RC to any action inconsistent with its terms. In particular, and without limitation, RC sales personnel and agents are not authorized to modify or grant exceptions to this Policy. RC reserves the right to modify this Policy from time to time without advance notice. This Policy is void in any nation, state, or province where prohibited by U.S. or local law.
