These terms and conditions ("Standard Terms") apply to every shipment and sale of Goods from Seller to Don’t Run Out, Inc. d/b/a Public Goods, a Delaware corporation (“Buyer”), unless otherwise agreed in writing and signed by Seller and Buyer.
- Purchase Orders. Buyer shall issue Purchase Orders to Seller in written or electronic form via e-mail or other form of delivery as mutually agreed to by the Parties.

Seller shall confirm to Buyer the receipt of each Purchase Order issued pursuant to the Agreement within two (2) business days following Seller's receipt thereof in written form via e-mail or other form of delivery as mutually agreed to by the Parties. If Seller fails to issue a confirmation within the time set forth in the first sentence of this Section 1.2 or otherwise commences performance under such Purchase Order, Seller will be deemed to have accepted the Purchase Order. Buyer may withdraw any Purchase Order prior to Seller's acceptance thereof. Seller may only reject a Purchase Order if (a) Seller has sent Buyer a notice of termination under the Agreement or (b) the applicable Purchase Order includes terms and conditions that supplement those contained in the Agreement Documents, which Seller is unwilling to accept. Seller may not cancel any previously accepted Purchase Order hereunder.
Shipment, Delivery, Acceptance, and Inspection.
- Shipment and Delivery Requirements. Time, quantity, and delivery to the Delivery Location are of the essence under the Agreement. Seller shall procure materials for, fabricate, assemble, pack, mark, and ship Goods strictly in the quantities, by the methods, to the Delivery Locations, and by the Delivery Dates specified in the applicable Purchase Order. Delivery times will be measured to the time that Goods are actually received at the Delivery Location.
Transfer of Title and Risk of Loss.
- Title to Goods shipped under any Purchase Order passes to Buyer upon the earliest to occur of (i) delivery of the Goods to Buyer, (ii) Buyer's acceptance of the Goods and (iii) payment of the Price for such Goods by Buyer. Title will transfer to Buyer even if Seller has not been paid for such Goods, provided that Buyer will not be relieved of its obligation to pay for Goods in accordance with the terms hereof.
- Notwithstanding any agreement between Buyer and Seller concerning transfer of title or responsibility for shipping costs, risk of loss to Goods shipped under any Purchase Order passes to Buyer upon receipt and acceptance by Buyer at the Delivery Location according to the terms of Purchase Order, and Seller will bear all risk of loss or damage with respect to Goods until Buyer's receipt and acceptance of such Goods in accordance with the terms hereof.
Packaging and Labeling.
- Seller shall properly pack, mark, and ship Goods as instructed by Buyer and otherwise in accordance with applicable Law and industry standards, and shall provide Buyer with shipment documentation reasonably acceptable to Buyer.
- If so indicated on the applicable purchase order, Seller shall label the Goods in accordance with the specifications provided by Buyer, using only labels authorized by Buyer, which labels shall be and remain the property of Buyer and used by Seller exclusively for labeling of the Goods to be delivered to Buyer. Buyer hereby grants to Seller a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the Trademarks and any copyrighted material included on the labels solely on the Goods ordered by Buyer thereunder and associated packaging, if the applicable Purchase Order indicates that Seller shall label the Goods. Nothing in the Agreement Documents shall be construed to grant Seller any right, title, interest, or license in the Trademarks except to the limited extent necessary to meet its obligations under the Agreement Documents.
- Ingredients and Materials Disclosure. Upon Buyer's request, Seller shall promptly provide to Buyer, in such form and detail as Buyer requests, a list of all ingredients and materials incorporated in the Goods, the amount of such ingredients and materials, and information concerning any changes in or additions to such ingredients and materials.
- Inspection. Goods are subject to Buyer's inspection and approval or rejection notwithstanding Buyer's prior receipt of or payment for the Goods. Buyer shall have a reasonable period of time, not to be less than ten (10) days following delivery of the Goods to the Delivery Location ("Inspection Period"), to inspect all Goods received under the Agreement Documents and to inform Seller, in writing, of Buyer's rejection of any such Nonconforming Goods. Buyer may return to Seller any or all units of rejected Goods that constitute Nonconforming Goods because they exceed the quantity stated in the applicable Purchase Order. All returns of Nonconforming Goods to Seller are at Seller's sole risk and expense. Goods that are not rejected within the Inspection Period will be deemed to have been accepted by Buyer; provided, however, that Buyer's acceptance of any Goods will not be deemed to be a waiver or limitation of Seller's obligations pursuant to the Agreement Documents (or any breach thereof), including those obligations with respect to Seller's Product Warranty and Seller's duty to indemnify Buyer.
Certain Obligations of Seller.
- Seller shall meet or exceed Buyer's quality standards for the Goods as adopted by Buyer from time to time, and which are provided by Buyer to Seller in writing.
