Customer agrees to be bound by and accepts these terms and conditions and acknowledges that these terms and conditions supersede any terms and conditions of any purchase order or similar document placed by Customer and are a condition to MūL’s obligations hereunder. Any attempt to modify, supplement or amend these terms and conditions will be void unless agreed to in writing by MūL .
- PAYMENT TERMS; ORDERS; QUOTES.
All orders are not binding on MūL unless accepted either by MūL in writing or by MūL’s shipment of the Product. Acceptance is determined at the sole discretion of MūL and MūL may reject any order for any reason at any time. Any quotation provided by MūL will be valid for the time period stated in the quotation. If no time period is stated, such quotation will be valid for 14 days from the date of the quote. MūL reserves the right to equitably adjust the price and delivery terms of the order in the event of changes to the volumes of Products. Customer shall pay invoices within 30 days from the date of the invoices unless MūL has agreed to other terms, in writing, or unless MūL requires C.O.D. payment or credit card payment. By providing a credit card or other payment method accepted by MūL, Customer represents and warrants that Customer is authorized to use the designated payment method and that Customer authorizes MūL (or our third-party payment processor) to charge Customer’s payment method for the total amount of Customer’s order (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method Customer provides cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, Customer’s order may be suspended or cancelled. Customer must resolve any payment problem MūL encounters in order to proceed with Customer’s order. Customer agrees to pay interest on all past due sums at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the highest rate allowed by law.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, delivery dates on orders may not be delayed by Customer more than 30 days beyond the delivery date initially acknowledged and agreed to by MūL in writing, unless previously agreed upon in writing by MūL. If MūL grants Customer any credit that may be applied against future invoices, any unused credit shall expire 365 days after the date the credit is granted to Customer. Customer consents to allow MūL to use Customer name in MūL’s promotional marketing.
