The customer agrees not to remove equipment from the designated location without the prior written consent to ACCEO.

3. Payment Condition. The Customer hereby agrees that this contract is conditional upon either:
(a) Customer paying all charges by certified cheque or money order on or before delivery; or
(b) Customer being accepted by a reputable leasing company for the lease of the equipment and software products, and Customer agreeing to sign the said leasing company’s standard lease. Customer agrees to sign the said leasing company’s standard lease and to be bound by its terms and conditions. The parties hereby agree that this section is for the benefit of ACCEO and that it can be waived or modified by ACCEO in writing, in its sole discretion.

4. Taxes. The charges to be paid pursuant to this Agreement include all applicable customs duties and federal sales taxes but do not include other taxes, however designated, imposed by any duly constituted authority, whether levied on ACCEO or Customer. Any such additional sales, use or other taxes, amounts in lieu thereof, and interest therein if not due to ACCEO. ACCEO’s delay, required to be paid by ACCEO shall be added to the invoice to Customer. Customer shall pay all taxes on personal or moveable property assessed after invoicing in respect of any equipment, part, product or service. Any taxes to be paid by Customer but in fact paid by ACCEO shall be reimbursed to ACCEO.

5. Supplies. Charges for the equipment and software products do not include furnishings of supplies or other expendable items unless otherwise indicated.

6. Patents, Copyrights, Trade Marks and Trade Secrets Indemnity – Customer shall be entitled to any patents, copyright, trade marks, and trade secrets indemnity offered by the various manufactures of the equipment; and agrees not to hold ACCEO liable for the costs or damages in settlement or awarded as a result of any action brought against the Customer based on the allegation that the equipment or any unit of part thereof delivered by ACCEO infringes a Canadian patent, copyright, trade mart or trade secret.

7. All software products sold herein are licensed pursuant to license agreements and said license agreements are incorporated by reference into this agreement.

8. Ownership of Equipment and Risk of Loss – Title to and ownership of the equipment and software products shall remain in ACCEO and shall only pass to Customer upon ACCEO’s receipt of payment of the full purchase price balance. At the time of transfer of title and ownership, ACCEO warrants title to the equipment to be clear, free and unencumbered. ACCEO reserves, and Customer hereby grants to ACCEO, a purchase money security interest by way of retention of title to and ownership of each unit of the equipment and software products, present and future, purchased by Customer pursuant to this Agreement and any agreement amending this Agreement, and any proceeds therefrom as security for payment of the amount of its purchase price, and such security interest shall be satisfied by payment of the purchase price balance in full. ACCEO may file a financing statement or other prescribe documentation with appropriate authorities in order to perfect ACCEO’s security interest or to protect ACCEO’s reservation of title. Customer agrees to execute any and all documents, including financing statements, as ACCEO or its assigns may request in order to perfect or mature this security interest. Any such filing shall not constitute acceptance of this Agreement by ACCEO. Upon full payment, ACCEO will, upon request, provide Customer with a duly executed discharge statement.

Neither ACCEO nor Customer shall be deemed to be in default of any provision hereof or be liable for any delay, failure in performance or interruption of service resulting directly or indirectly from acts of God, civil disturbance, war, strikes, fires, other catastrophes, or other force majeure beyond its reasonable control. Failure of Customer to pay charges with due shall, so long as Customer continues to fail to pay such charges, excuse ACCEO from its obligations under this Agreement.

10. System Capability – Any proposal or recommendation by ACCEO for the equipment ordered respecting the capability of the system to perform applications of, or produce certain results for Customer is based on ACCEO’s best efforts to provide an operation system for Customer. It shall constitute a commitment on the part of ACCEO only if it is specifically incorporated by reference in this Agreement, and Customer cannot itself verify system capability in advance of accepting delivery of the equipment. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES ITS OBLIGATION TO ACCEO TO VERIFY SYSTEM CAPABILITY IN ADVANCE OF DELIVERY WHENEVER REASONABLY POSSIBLE.

DAMAGES TO EITHER PARTY HEREUNDER SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE FAIR MARKET VALUE OF PRODUCTS ACTUALLY PURCHASED. NO PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE, UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS AND SAVINGS, EVEN IF THERE HAS BEEN NOTICE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

If, notwithstanding the foregoing, applicable law requires the giving of notice or the making of a demand of ACCEO prior to taking possession, it is agreed that written notice of not less than 3 days shall be considered reasonable. Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, ACCEO may, in its discretion, whether or not it has taken possession of the equipment, declare the sums secured hereby, immediately due and payable. Whether permitted or required by applicable law, ACCEO may make repairs, improvements or modifications as are commercially reasonably for making a provident disposition of the Equipment and software products.
