Equipment purchase terms and conditions.

Version 1.0, Sept 10 2018.

1. Applicability.

These Hiber Equipment Purchase Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) apply to the sale of ground equipment, parts, and other goods (“Equipment”) by Magnitude Space B.V., a company registered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and doing business as Hiber (“Hiber”), to End Users, resellers, integrators, and other commercial and governmental customers (“Customers”). In the event that Hiber and the Customer have executed a separate agreement that applies to the sale of Equipment such as a master sales agreement, reseller agreement, etc., and such agreement is in effect as of the date that the Equipment is purchased by Customer, then the terms of such separate agreement shall take precedence over any inconsistent provisions contained in these Terms.

2. Definitions.

a. Customer: The entity purchasing Equipment from Hiber, either as an End User, for integration into its own service or product offering, or for resale to End Users or other parties.

b. Mission Control: The online interface operated by Hiber from which the End User makes purchases and manages its Hiber account.

c. Resale Customer: A party to whom a Customer, in its own name, resells Equipment sold to Customer by Hiber.

3. Pricing and Taxes.

a. All pricing for Equipment shall be as stated on Mission Control and shall be firm fixed prices. All pricing is subject to change based on market conditions; no Customer order shall be final until Acceptance of the Order.

b. All pricing shall be exclusive of all taxes, regulatory fees, customs fees, and other charges. Customer will be solely responsible for the following: any applicable national, state, provincial, and regional local sales, excise, use or other tax assessment, including VAT or GST where applicable and surcharges or similar charges of any nature levied upon the Service or Product by any governmental taxation or revenue entity (except for taxes based on Hiber’s income) arising out of or related to the sale of the Equipment (“Taxes”); telecommunications regulatory fees imposed by any governmental authority; and any shipping and customs costs incurred in the shipment of the Equipment to the Customer location. If Customer provides Hiber with an applicable tax exemption certificate, Hiber will work with Customer to obtain applicable tax exemptions to the extent consistent with applicable law.

4. Acceptance and Payment Terms.

a. A customer order for equipment shall be deemed accepted by Hiber upon the emailed confirmation by Hiber of an order placed on Mission Control or otherwise (“Acceptance”).

b. Payment in advance is required for all purchases of Equipment. Billing in arrears is not permitted.

c. In the event that any Tax, duty, impost, levy or like charge becomes payable in any territory, either by deduction or otherwise, on or in respect of any amount to be paid by Customer to Hiber, or which Customer may be required to withhold in respect of any amount due to Hiber, such tax, duty, impost levy or like charge shall be for the account of Customer, and Customer shall pay to Hiber such an amount as to yield to Hiber a net equal to the amount that but for such tax, levy, impost or charge would have been received by Hiber.

d. Customer Purchase Orders and Terms. In the event that Customer issues a purchase order to Hiber in connection with ordering Equipment, such purchase order will be treated as an administrative document only and not an offer subject to acceptance, and will not add to, delete from, or modify any of these Terms. Any Customer acceptance or acknowledgement of these Terms shall not serve to modify these Terms unless expressly confirmed in writing by Hiber

5. Cancellations.

a. Recognizing the unique nature of the Equipment provided by Hiber and the customized and discrete nature of Hiber’s operations, once a Customer has paid for Equipment, the order may not be cancelled by the Customer without the written consent of Hiber, which may be subject to a cancellation fee of up to the full value of the order in question.

b. All products sales are final. No returns of Equipment are permitted.

6. Data Protection.

Customer agrees and understands that Hiber may store, process and use data collected from Customer for the purposes of managing Customer’s Mission Control account and processing the Customer’s orders.

a. Unless otherwise specified in the Modification, all Equipment is shipped “FCA-- Hiber’s facility” (Incoterms 2010).

c. Hiber warrants that the Equipment will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a guaranteed period of one (1) year from the date of arrival of the Product at the Customer’s designated destination.

Hiber shall not be responsible for any work done or repairs made by parties not authorized by Hiber. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, any disassembly or repair performed other than in accordance with this clause voids this warranty. Hiber shall not be responsible for the performance of any Product which incorporates items not manufactured by Hiber unless such performance is expressly designated as Hiber’s responsibility under the terms of a written agreement between Hiber and the Customer.

f. As a condition of this warranty, Customer shall notify Hiber in writing of any claimed nonconformance immediately upon discovery and shall return the item to Hiber for inspection.

g. Once a warranty repair has been completed, Hiber will warrant such repair until the later of the end of (i) ninety (90) days from the date of return delivery at the Customer’s delivery point; and (ii) the original 12-month warranty period.

h. Unless previously agreed to in writing, Hiber shall not provide field repairs, modifications, or any other field service under this warranty.

i. The warranties contained herein are exclusive and are given in lieu of all other warranties, expressed, implied or statutory, including the implied warranty of merchanability or fitness for a particular purpose.

j. For any repairs requested after the warranty period or for damage arising out of the conditions specified in Clause 7(e), Hiber will provide a quote for such repairs and if the quote is accepted and the work authorized by Customer, the repairs will be performed at Customer’s expense.

8. Indemnity and Limitation of Liability.

Hiber shall not be liable to Customer, nor shall Customer make any claim against Hiber, for claims, actions, losses, costs and damages (“Liabilities”) sustained by reason of any faultiness or failure of the Equipment. In the event that Customer is selling Equipment to a third party, Customer agrees that it will include in any agreement to provide Equipment an explicit commitment on the part of the third party to waive any right to make any claim against Hiber for Liabilities sustained by reason of any faultiness or failure of the Equipment.

Customer shall indemnify and hold Hiber and its officers, employees and agents harmless from and against all such Liability.

e.
