1. GENERAL; ACCEPTANCE.
The party from whom MakerBot Industries, LLC (“MakerBot”) is obtaining goods or services from a seller (“Seller”) agrees to perform the requested services (“Services”) and/or provide the requested goods (“Goods”) described in this purchase order/request for quote (“PO” or “Order”) in accordance with these terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”). All purchases made by MakerBot will be made pursuant to POs issued against these Terms and Conditions. Upon acceptance of this Order by Seller, shipment of Goods from Seller or commencement of Services by Seller, Seller shall be bound by the provisions of these Terms and Conditions and all provisions set forth on the face of this PO. ALL POs ARE GOVERNED EXCLUSIVELY BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Any additional or inconsistent terms or conditions contained in any acknowledgment, invoice or other communication of Seller are hereby rejected. In the event of any inconsistency among provisions contained in any PO and any other documents or agreements referenced herein or separately agreed between the parties, the inconsistency will be resolved by giving precedence in the following order: (i) separate, written contract; (ii) the PO on which these Terms and Conditions are referenced or to which these Terms and Conditions are attached; (iii) these Terms and Conditions; (iv) drawings; (v) specifications; and (vi) any other documents incorporated by reference.
2. DELIVERY; PACKING AND SHIPMENT.
Delivery of Goods shall be as stated in the PO unless otherwise expressly agreed upon and shall be made pursuant to the schedule, via the carrier and to the facility specified on the face of this Order, without charge for boxing, crating, carting or storage unless otherwise specified. If no delivery schedule is specified herein, Seller shall affect delivery by the most expeditious form of land transportation. If no method of shipment is specified in this Order, Seller shall use the least expensive carrier. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE WITH RESPECT TO DELIVERY. Seller will immediately notify MakerBot if it suspects or becomes aware of an inability to timely deliver ordered Goods or Services. Upon such notice, MakerBot may, at its option, (i) decline to accept the Goods or Services and terminate the Order; (ii) demand its allocable fair share of Seller’s available Goods and terminate the balance of the Order; or (iii) require delivery by the fastest method to meet the delivery dates at the sole expense of Seller. Seller shall package all Goods in suitable containers to permit safe transportation and handling, insure against damage from weather or transportation and secure the lowest transportation costs. Such containers must be appropriately labeled, contain packing sheets listing each item and its associated PO line item number. Such PO line item number must appear on all containers, packing sheets, delivery tickets and bills of lading.
3. RISK OF LOSS; DESTRUCTION OF GOODS.
Seller assumes all risk of loss with respect to Goods covered by this Order until receipt of Goods by MakerBot at the designated destination. If Goods covered by this Order are destroyed prior to MakerBot’s receipt thereof, MakerBot may: (i) cancel this Order or (ii) require delivery by Seller as soon as commercially practicable of substitute Goods of equal quantity and quality.
MakerBot may at reasonable times inspect the Goods and Services to be purchased under this Order at Seller’s (or Seller’s subcontractor’s) facilities. MakerBot’s inspection of Goods before or after delivery shall not constitute acceptance. No inspection or test made prior to final acceptance shall relieve Seller from responsibility for defects or other failure to meet the requirements of Order. Goods covered by this Order will be subject to final inspection and approval by MakerBot within a reasonable time after delivery to MakerBot, notwithstanding payment by MakerBot prior to delivery. MakerBot may reject or revoke acceptance of any Goods which are defective in material or workmanship or which do not conform to MakerBot’s specifications. MakerBot may elect to: (i) return rejected Goods for the full invoice price plus applicable transportation charges; (ii) retain rejected Goods for repair by Seller or, at MakerBot’s election, for repair by MakerBot with such assistance from Seller as MakerBot may reasonably require; or (iii) return rejected Goods to Seller for repair or replacement within such time as MakerBot may reasonably require. All costs and expenses, loss of value and any other damages incurred by MakerBot in connection with the repair or replacement of non-conforming Goods or Services may be recovered from Seller by an equitable price reduction or credit against any amounts otherwise owed by MakerBot to Seller.
Seller expressly warrants that: (a) Seller will convey clear title to all Goods to be purchased hereunder to MakerBot; free of any liens, claims or other encumbrances; (b) Goods or Services furnished will conform to all applicable specifications, drawings, samples, or other descriptions furnished, specified or adopted by MakerBot and to all other requirements of the PO; (c) Goods will be merchantable, produced using reliable material and workmanship and will be free from defect for at least one year from delivery to MakerBot, or such longer limited warranty period as MakerBot may specify in the PO; (d) all Goods have been selected, designed manufactured or assembled by Seller based upon MakerBot’s intended use and will be fit and sufficient for such purposes. Such warranties, together with Seller’s service performance warranties above and other guarantees, if any, will survive inspection, test, acceptance of, and payment for the Goods or Services and will run to MakerBot, its successors, assigns, and end users at any tier. Seller further warrants that all Goods and Services provided to MakerBot will be free from any third-party claims or liability for alleged misuse, misappropriation or infringement of any patent, trademark, copyright or other right. Seller agrees that it will, at its own expense, including payment of costs and attorney fees and disbursements, defend any claims, charges or lawsuits instituted by any party against MakerBot or its customers arising out of, in connection with or related to any breach of the above warranties, and agrees to indemnify and hold harmless MakerBot and all persons claiming under MakerBot in respect of any claims, demands, liabilities, losses, judgments, awards, fines, settlements, court costs, attorney fees, and expenses incurred by reason of such claims, charges or lawsuits. Seller will notify MakerBot in writing of each such notice or claim of which Seller has knowledge. If the alleged breach relates to a third-party claim based on its intellectual property rights, Seller will, at its own expense, either procure for MakerBot the right to continue using the article, apparatus, material, part, device, process or method or, if the performance thereof will not be adversely affected, replace same with a non-infringing substitute or modify it so it becomes non-infringing, or remove it and refund the purchase price, transportation and installation costs thereof.
Seller’s invoices for Goods or Services purchased under this Order shall be emailed to MakerBot (email@example.com) promptly upon shipment. Line item detail, descriptions of Goods or Services and reference numbers on Seller’s invoices must correspond to their counterparts on the face side of the PO. MakerBot’s standard payment terms are net 60 days from date of invoice unless otherwise agreed. MakerBot shall pay Seller: (i) the amount agreed upon and specified in this Order or (ii) Seller’s quoted price on date of shipment (for Goods) or date of commencement of performance (for Services), whichever is lower. Applicable taxes and other charges such as shipping costs, value added taxes, duties, customs, tariffs, imposts and government imposed surcharges must be stated separately on Seller’s invoices. MakerBot shall have the right at all times to set off any amount owing from Seller to MakerBot or any of its affiliated companies against any amount payable at any time by MakerBot.
Prices for Goods are as stated in the respective PO and are not subject to increase unless another PO is executed by the parties for such Goods. No charges or price increases of any kind shall be allowed unless specifically agreed to by MakerBot in writing. Except as otherwise expressly provided, Seller shall bear all of Seller’s own expenses incurred in providing Goods and/or Services.
8. CHANGE ORDERS.
MakerBot may at any time, by change order, modify an Order in any of the following respects: drawings, designs, specifications, shipping, packing, place of inspections, place of delivery, place of acceptance, adjustments in quantities, adjustments in delivery schedules or the amount of MakerBot-furnished material. Seller shall promptly notify MakerBot of any change in the cost or expected completion/delivery dates of Goods or Services covered hereby as a result of MakerBot’s change order, and Seller shall provide proposed pricing adjustments (with supporting information) to MakerBot no later than 30 days from the date of Seller’s receipt of MakerBot’s change order.
9. SELLER CHANGES.
Seller shall not make any changes in the specifications, physical composition of, or processes used to manufacture the Goods hereunder without MakerBot’s prior written consent.
Seller agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and at MakerBot’s request, defend MakerBot, its officers, directors, customers, agents and employees (each, an “Indemnified Party”) against all claims, liabilities, damages, losses and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and expenses, incurred by an Indemnified Party on account of the acts or omissions of Seller or its employees, agents or subcontractors in any way connected with the Goods or Services provided under this Order, including, without limitation, (a) any claim based on the death or bodily injury to any person, destruction or damage to property, or contamination of the environment; (b) any claim based on the negligence, omissions or willful misconduct of Seller or Seller’s employees, agents or subcontractors; and (c) any claim by a third party against any Indemnified Party alleging that the Goods or Services, the results of such Services or any other processes provided under this Order, infringe a patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary right of a third party, whether such are provided alone or in combination with other Goods or Services. Seller shall not settle any such claim without MakerBot’ prior approval. Seller agrees to pay or reimburse all costs that may be incurred by an Indemnified Party in enforcing this indemnity, including attorneys’ fees and expenses. If MakerBot or MakerBot’s distributors’ or customers’ use of Goods or Services covered by this Order shall be enjoined or otherwise prevented by legal action, Seller shall, at its sole expense, (a) substitute fully equivalent non-infringing Goods or Services; (b) modify the Goods or Services so that they no longer infringe but remain fully equivalent in functionality; (c) obtain for MakerBot and its distributors or customers the right to continue using the Goods or Services; or (d) refund all amounts paid for the infringing Goods or Services.
No knowledge or information disclosed to MakerBot by Seller which in any way relates to Products or services covered by any PO, will, unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing by MakerBot, be deemed to be confidential or proprietary information, and MakerBot will acquire all such knowledge and information free from any restrictions (other than a claim for patent infringement), as part of the consideration for the PO. All technical and other information obtained or learned by Seller as a result of any MakerBot order or its relationship with Seller, is and will remain the valuable, confidential and proprietary information of MakerBot, including, but not limited to, drawings, data, specifications, components, concepts, designs, or tooling. To the extent the parties have entered into a nondisclosure agreement (“NDA”) to protect such information, the provisions of such NDA shall control any conflicting or inconsistent terms herein. Seller agrees not to disclose to third parties or use for its own pecuniary benefit or advantage any MakerBot confidential and proprietary information. Seller further agrees that any improvement, modification, refinement, or product developed by Seller or jointly by Seller and MakerBot as a result of knowledge of MakerBot confidential and proprietary information shall be the property of MakerBot, and shall be treated as MakerBot confidential and proprietary information. Seller will provide such assignments or other conveyances to the extent such assets require separate documentation from these Terms and Conditions. Accordingly, the Seller agrees that MakerBot will, in addition to any other remedies available to it at law or in equity, be entitled to seek injunctive relief to enforce these Terms and Conditions. Upon cancellation or termination of any PO or the parties working relationship, or otherwise upon request of MakerBot, Seller shall turn over to MakerBot any and all MakerBot confidential information, including all copies, excerpts or other reproductions thereof. The confidentiality provisions of this Paragraph will apply to and be binding upon Seller’s officers, directors, employees, advisers, consultants and other representatives, and the protection of MakerBot’ confidential information and materials will expressly survive any expiration or termination of any relationships between the parties indefinitely and for as long as such information remains confidential or proprietary, unless and only to the extent otherwise consented to in a writing signed by MakerBot.
12. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS; WORK PRODUCT.
Seller agrees that where Seller undertakes activity of research, development and/or design nature using information provided by MakerBot, MakerBot shall exclusively own all rights, title and interest in any resulting work product including, without limitation, all know-how, trade secrets and intellectual property. Seller shall take all necessary steps to ensure that MakerBot obtains full legal title in and to such rights. Seller will ensure that Seller’s employees, agents and subcontractors appropriately waive any and all claims to, and assign to MakerBot, all rights or interests in, any work product created in connection with this Order. Seller grants the right to MakerBot to produce copies, reproductions or derivative works of material provided under this agreement for purposes of this agreement.

To the extent that Seller is providing design services, Seller will obtain adequate levels of Professional Liability insurance to cover risk of loss reasonably related to the scope and extent of the Services provided. At minimum, the coverage will be: $1,000,000 combined single limit each accident. The Professional Liability policy will include a retroactive date to the date that Seller first rendered Services in connection with the Project and with a discovery period; (g) All insurance required above will be written with insurers rated A or better by the latest “Bests” Guide; (h) All policies with the exception of Workers’ Compensation will include MakerBot as an additional insured and include a waiver of subrogation towards MakerBot.

If Seller, within the thirty-day notice period, corrects the cause giving rise to the notice to the satisfaction of MakerBot, MakerBot may void the termination. In the event MakerBot terminates an order pursuant to this Section, MakerBot shall have all rights and remedies available under law and equity and will have no further obligation to Seller.

Seller may not, later than six (6) months after Seller’s receipt of MakerBot’ termination notice, submit to MakerBot a claim for reimbursement of costs incurred by Seller by reason of MakerBot’s termination for convenience. Seller shall have the duty to mitigate damages.
16. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF.
Because damages for violation of this Agreement may be difficult to ascertain and because violation of this Agreement may result in irreparable injury to MakerBot for which money damages may not adequately compensate MakerBot, Seller hereby consents to the entry of an order against Seller to prevent any breach of this Agreement or any continuing breach of this Agreement by Seller as well as any other relief available to it at law or equity.

MakerBot reserves the right to amend or replace these Terms and Conditions from time to time by posting any new or replacement terms and conditions on www.makerbot.com.
1. MakerBot acts as both a contractor and subcontractor to the US government in the sales of its commercial items. As such, MakerBot is subject to the requirements of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (“FAR”) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (“DFARS”). When the Goods or Services, including the Goods resulting from Services hereby ordered are for use in connection with a United States Government (“Government”) prime contract or higher-tier subcontract, the following FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses shall apply, as required by the terms of the prime contract, or by operation of law or regulation. The effective version of each FAR/DFARS provision and clause shall be the same version as that which appears in MakerBot’s prime contract, or Order, or higher-tier subcontract under which this PO is a subcontract. In the event of a conflict between these FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses and the terms and conditions of any controlling terms and conditions or prime contract provisions, the FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses shall control.
2. The following FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses in effect as of the date of the prime contract are incorporated herein, with the same force and effect as if they were given in full text. The full text of a FAR/DFARS provision or clause may be accessed electronically at these addresses: http://farsite.hill.af.mil or https://www.acquisition.gov/far. In all provisions and clauses listed herein, terms shall be revised to suitably identify the party to establish Seller’s obligations to MakerBot and to the Government, and to enable MakerBot to meet its obligations under the prime contract. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and except where further clarified or modified below, the term “Government” and equivalent phrases shall mean “Buyer”, the term “Contracting Officer” shall mean “Buyer’s Purchasing Representative”, the term “Contractor” or “Offeror” shall mean “Seller”, “Subcontractor” shall mean “Seller’s Subcontractor” under this Purchase Order, and the term “Contract” shall mean this “Purchase Order”. For the avoidance of doubt, the words “Government” and “Contracting Officer” do not change: when a right, act, authorization, or obligation can be granted or performed only by the Government or the prime contract Contracting Officer or duly authorized representative, for example in FAR 52.227-1 or FAR 52.227-2, or when title to property is to be transferred directly to the Government. If any of the following FAR provisions and clauses do not apply to this Purchase Order, such provisions and clauses are considered to be self-deleting. For the avoidance of doubt, those FAR/DFARS provisions which do not apply because the work are not performed in the US are considered self-deleting. Seller shall incorporate into each lower tier contract issued in support of this Purchase Order all applicable FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses in accordance with the flow down requirements specified in such clauses.
3. From time to time, the FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses may be updated by the US government through change in regulations, change orders to the prime contract, and new subcontracts. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, these supplemental terms may be updated to Seller by written notice from MakerBot.
4. Seller shall report suspected violations of this Appendix A immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org.
