PURCHASE ORDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The following Terms and Conditions govern the purchase order and its attachments, all of which are incorporated by reference (“Order”). No verbal agreements amending the terms of this order are valid unless both the Purchaser and the Supplier duly confirm them in writing.
This Purchase Order by One Theory Biosciences (“OT Biosciences” or “OTB”) is an offer which shall become a binding contract with the named Supplier (“You”), subject to the express terms and conditions hereof, when accepted by your acknowledgment and/or commencement of performance.

This Order is the total understanding between the parties as related to the subject matter herein. Any references to any other terms and conditions, including but not limited to attachment of Supplier’s terms and conditions, over stamping on the acknowledgment, or any terms on an invoice to this Order, shall not alter the terms and conditions of this Order, nor shall they constitute a counteroffer or rejection of the Order, even if expressly and conspicuously stated. OT Biosciences now hereby serves notice on Supplier that it objects to any purported changes that would work to affect or alter its express Purchase Order terms.
2.0. Delivery & Performance.

Over-shipments, regardless of cause, are not accepted, and may be returned or retained, at Supplier’s sole expense. Early delivery or performance shall not result in earlier payment or loss of any early payment discount rates.
3.0. Packing and Shipment.
Except where the Purchase Order includes alternative requirements, you shall be responsible for packaging goods (and clearly and conspicuously marking the goods and packaging) in accordance with applicable law, industry standards and in a manner sufficient to permit efficient handling. You shall properly classify, describe, package, mark and label all goods for shipment in accordance with the Order, OTB or manufacturer specifications and applicable laws or regulations. All goods shall be delivered packed in suitable containers for shipping protection and storage. In case of dangerous goods, the Supplier shall submit details of packing and transportation plan to the OT Biosciences Purchaser for confirmation prior to shipment.
An itemized packing slip must accompany each delivery. You must include the OT Biosciences’ Order number and part number conspicuously on each packing slip and on each container.

4.0. Examination, Inspection & Acceptance of Goods.
You shall inspect (i) all performed services; and (ii) goods prior to shipment; to ensure conformance with all requirements of this Order. You are responsible for inspecting, testing and maintaining all materials, supplies, tools, manufacturing equipment and processes involved in the manufacturing process (collectively, “Manufacturing Items”), and such an inspection system must be satisfactory to OT Biosciences.
OT Biosciences, its Representatives and/or end user(s) may inspect, audit, test, reject or accept goods, deliverables or services during manufacture or performance at any time, with reasonable notice. When inspections/tests are made at your manufacturing facility, shipping facility or place of performance, you shall provide reasonable facilities and assistance for the safety and convenience of OT Biosciences’ inspectors. We agree that our inspections/tests will not unduly interfere with your business. You shall maintain quality control and inspection systems as mutually agreed upon and provide OT Biosciences with quality assurance documentation, manuals or certifications.
All goods, services and deliverables will be subject to (i) final inspection and acceptance by OT Biosciences at destination; and (ii) inspection or rejection by any federal, state or municipal government or agency that OT Biosciences may require or desire. Any OT Biosciences inspection or audit will not relieve you of your responsibility to inspect and audit. OT Biosciences may accept or reject in whole or in part (i) any delivery containing defective or nonconforming goods or service deliverables; or (ii) performance of any nonconforming services.
5.0. Rejected Goods or Services.
OT Biosciences may, at its option, either return defective/nonconforming goods to you for: (i) replacement or correction; or ii) full reimbursement. Alternatively, OT Biosciences may cancel the Order in its entirety.
In either event, OT Biosciences shall be entitled to reimbursement for any incurred expenses relating to the rejected goods including, but not limited to transportation, handling, and packaging. If you fail to promptly replace or correct rejected goods or services to OT Biosciences’ satisfaction, or re-perform services to OT Biosciences’ satisfaction, within a commercially reasonable time, OT Biosciences is entitled to: cancel the order in whole or in part without being subject to any liability for damages; demand a reduction in price; or undertake itself any repair at the expense of the Supplier or re-performance of services or replacement of deliveries or arrange for such to be done; and claim damages in lieu of performance.
Supplier will reimburse OT Biosciences for all losses and expenses (including good corrections, rework, service re-performance and Recalls (as defined below)) and indemnify and hold OT Biosciences harmless from any third-party claims arising out of the defect/nonconformity in the goods or services. Any inspection or acceptance of goods or services under this Order by OT Biosciences shall not operate as a waiver of any rights or obligations under this Order or release you from your warranties, obligations or liabilities under this Order. Payment by OT Biosciences for any goods or services provided under this Order shall not be deemed an acceptance of such goods or services.
6.0. Counterfeit Avoidance (Electronic Component Procurement)
One Theory Biosciences has a zero-tolerance policy for counterfeiting. Suppliers must provide only authentic, unused product. Supporting traceability documentation to an authorized source is required to be submitted to support this authenticity with each shipment and order. Where traceability is not complete, rigorous testing to AS6081 requirements is always required.
Fraudulent/counterfeit parts have no value. Any warranty provision contained in the Supplier’s Terms and Conditions will be declared null and void if it is later determined that fraudulent/counterfeit parts or suspect fraudulent/counterfeit parts were received.
In the event that a Suspect Counterfeit Electronic Part or a confirmed counterfeit Electronic Part is identified, OT Biosciences will quarantine the parts to prevent assembly into deliverable products. These parts shall immediately be collected and tagged for quarantine, evaluation, and disposition. After conclusion of appropriate analysis if the item is confirmed to be a counterfeit Electronic Part or remains a Suspect Counterfeit Electronic Part, then the supplier will be notified for response; relevant facts will be provided to GIDEP; and parts will be held in quarantine. Under no circumstance will such parts be returned to the supplier. OT Biosciences will require a full credit without offset for the amount paid (or cancellation of invoice). Depending on the nature of the facts, OT Biosciences may also contact the manufacturer and the Intellectual Property Section of the Department of Justice.
The quarantine is released upon determination of authenticity. Electronic Parts that are confirmed to be counterfeit or remain Suspect Counterfeit Electronic Part are retained for potential use as evidence until the issue is resolved with involved parties. Upon resolution, the parts are then destroyed by appropriate methods (i.e.: grinding, shredding, etc.) to ensure they will not re-enter the supply chain.
Supplying counterfeit material will result in an immediate hold on all purchasing from your company or site, and you will be removed as a supplier until a corrective action plan has been approved by your One Theory Purchasing Contact and management. Under no circumstance will suppliers be reinstated sooner than or in less than ninety (90) days, whether or not the corrective action plan has been accepted.
7.0. Product Recalls.
In the event that any good (or any finished good incorporating a good that is the subject of this Oder) is recalled, withdrawn or field corrected, Supplier shall fully cooperate with OT Biosciences in connection with such recall, withdrawal or field correction (collectively, “Recall”). In the event that a Recall of the goods is necessitated by a defect, a failure to conform to the specifications, a violation of applicable laws, a breach of Supplier’s warranties or any other term or condition set forth in this Order or any other reason within the Supplier’s control,
Supplier shall bear all costs and expenses of such Recall, including without limitation, costs of notifying customers, customer refunds for the goods and/or the finished goods that contains Supplier’s defective goods, costs of returning goods, lost profits, and other expenses incurred to meet obligations to third parties incurred in connection with such Recall. Supplier shall abide by all decisions of OT Biosciences to initiate a Recall of goods (or any finished good incorporating a good that is the subject of this Order). Supplier shall not voluntarily initiate any Recall of the goods without OT Biosciences ’s prior written consent.
8.0. (PCN)/ Product Change Notices.
Any changes made to an Order must be agreed to in writing and signed by an authorized representative of OT Biosciences (“Product Change Notice”). Supplier shall immediately notify OT Biosciences if the Product Change Notice will impact Supplier’s cost, time of delivery or time of performance. If so, the parties will equitably adjust costs and schedules, in writing. Ninety (90) days’ notice and OT Biosciences ’s written approval is required prior to any changes in the design, specifications, performance, manufacturing or materials for goods or services supplied by Supplier. Such changes include, but are not limited to relocation of manufacturing site; change in ownership of Supplier; new, additional, modified tooling or other equipment; modified manufacturing processes; material changes; or other design and/or specification modifications. End of Life (EOL) notification shall be submitted at a minimum of 180 days prior written notice.
9.0. Environmental Protection, Duties to Declare –

If the failure to perform is caused by the default of a subcontractor, and if such default arises: (i) out of causes beyond the control of both Supplier and such subcontractor; and (ii) without the fault or negligence of either of them, then Supplier shall not be liable for the failure to perform, unless goods and services to be furnished by such subcontractor were obtainable from other sources in sufficient time to permit Supplier to meet the required schedule. Supplier will notify OT Biosciences in writing of such causes within 10 days after Supplier first learns of it. If the condition causing the delay exists for more than 30 days, OT Biosciences may cancel this Order without any liability.
