THESE TERMS OF SALE ARE BETWEEN YOU (“PURCHASER” OR “YOU”) AND THE INSIGHT ENTITY IDENTIFIED IN OUR OFFER TO SELL (“QUOTE” or “Quotation”), AN ORDER, INVOICE OR STATEMENT OF WORK (COLLECTIVELY, THE "AGREEMENT" OR “TERMS OF SALE”), AND WILL APPLY TO YOUR ORDER AND PURCHASE OF THIRD PARTY HARDWARE, SOFTWARE AND RELATED THIRD PARTY SERVICES (COLLECTIVELY, "PRODUCT"), AND ANY SERVICES PERFORMED BY INSIGHT AS DESCRIBED IN A QUOTE, ORDER OR STATEMENT OF WORK (“SERVICES”).
UPON PLACING AN ORDER FOR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY AND ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT UNLESS AND TO THE EXTENT THERE IS A SEPARATE WRITTEN AGREEMENT EXECUTED BETWEEN THE PARTIES THAT GOVERNS. ANY ADDITIONAL OR DIFFERING TERMS OR CONDITIONS PROPOSED OR INCLUDED IN YOUR PURCHASE ORDER DOCUMENT OR ORDER ACCEPTANCE WILL BE FOR YOUR INTERNAL ADMINISTRATIVE PURPOSES ONLY AND NOT BECOME PART OF THE AGREEMENT AND ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY REJECTED. NO COURSE OF PRIOR DEALINGS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND NO USAGE OF TRADE WILL BE RELEVANT TO DETERMINE THE MEANING OF THIS AGREEMENT, INSIGHT’S QUOTE OR ANY ORDER OR INVOICE, REGARDLESS OF FORM.
- Acceptance; Cancellation
Purchaser agrees that Insight’s quotation is an offer to sell and Purchaser’s order is acceptance of such offer with respect to any Products or, with respect to Services, listed in Purchaser’s order or as set forth in a written Statement of Work (“SOW”). Orders and SOWs may be cancelled or terminated under the following conditions:
- Product: Purchaser may cancel any order for Product at no charge up to five (5) business days prior to scheduled shipment upon written notice to Insight, unless such Product has been modified or otherwise reconfigured in accordance with Purchaser’s specifications. If an order is cancelled prior to shipment, Purchaser’s sole remedy and Insight's sole obligation will be a refund of the purchase price paid for the applicable Product. Cancellation of orders following shipment must be made in accordance with the return policies of the manufacturer, publisher or supplier of the Product.
- Services: Either party may terminate the performance of a Service, SOW or order for Services for cause if the other party fails to remedy a material breach within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice of such breach, except that it will only have ten (10) days to remedy any payment default. Services will be deemed accepted five (5) days from the date of the invoice, unless otherwise specified in writing under the applicable SOW.
- Effect: Cancellation or termination shall not relieve Purchaser of Purchaser’s duty to pay for Products shipped, Services performed, or fees and expenses incurred by Insight prior to receiving required written notice.
- Accuracy of Data/Corrections
Insight obtains certain data directly from the manufacturer, publisher or supplier of Products and is not responsible for pricing, typographical or other errors in any such data. Insight reserves the right to cancel orders related to such errors or Product discontinuation or unavailability, and to correct at any time, including pricing errors not detected until after Insight's confirmation or e-mail response.
Prices are subject to change at any time prior to Insight's acceptance of Purchaser’s order. Prices are exclusive of all taxes, duties, shipping and handling charges. Availability of third party Product is subject to change without notice.
Payment terms are at Insight's sole discretion and all orders are subject to Insight's credit approval. Purchaser agrees to pay the total purchase price for Products, plus tax and shipping (to the extent shipping is not prepaid by Purchaser, including shipping charges billed to Insight as a result of using Purchaser’s carrier account number or a carrier selected by Purchaser).
- Invoicing/Payment: Product will be invoiced on the date of shipment. Services will be invoiced on the date performance is completed or as otherwise specified in any mutually agreed upon SOW. Puchaser must pay all undisputed invoices in full within 30 days of the invoice date. All payments must reference the invoice number. Unless otherwise specified, all invoices shall be paid in the currency of the invoice.
- Credit/Late Payment: Purchaser must provide appropriate credit references upon request and authorize us to obtain credit history from such references. Insight retains the right to decline to extend credit and to require that the applicable purchase price be paid prior to provision of Product or performance of Services based on changes in Insight's credit policies or Purchaser’s financial condition and/or payment record. Insight reserves the right to charge interest of 1.5% per month or the maximum allowable by applicable law, whichever is less, for any undisputed past due invoices. Purchaser is responsible for all costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys' fees, for any payment default on undisputed invoices. Insight may terminate or suspend deliveries or all further work if payment is not received in a timely manner.
- Taxes: Federal, state and local sales, use and excise taxes and all similar taxes and duties (excluding taxes based on Insight's income, assets or net worth) are solely Purchaser’s responsibility. Purchaser may provide Insight a tax exemption certificate, which will be subject to review and acceptance by Insight.
- Delivery/Title/Risk of Loss
Insight will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet requested delivery times but does not guarantee delivery by a stated time and is not responsible for any damages due to delays or the failure to meet a stated delivery schedule. Insight reserves the right to make deliveries in installments. Delay in delivery of one installment will not entitle Purchaser to cancel other installments. Product will be delivered to you FOB Destination (your designated facility), freight prepaid and added. Title and risk of loss shall pass to you when Product is delivered to your designated facility. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph, title to software Product remains with the applicable licensor(s), and software delivery occurs when it is first made available by the licensor or Insight for your use. Purchaser grants a security interest in all Products purchased under this Agreement to secure payment in full. Additionally, Purchaser authorizes Insight to execute and file a financing statement or other documents that are necessary to perfect Insight's security interest. Insight's security interest shall terminate when Insight has received all amounts due for the Product(s).

- Governing Law
THIS AGREEMENT AND ALL ORDERS SHALL BE GOVERNED BY THE SUBSTANTIVE LAWS OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW RULES. ANY ARBITRATION, ENFORCEMENT OF AN ARBITRATION OR LITIGATION WILL BE BROUGHT EXCLUSIVELY IN MARICOPA COUNTY, ARIZONA, AND PURCHASER CONSENTS TO THE JURISDICTION OF THE FEDERAL AND STATE COURTS LOCATED THEREIN, SUBMITS TO THE JURISDICTION THEREOF AND WAIVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE VENUE. PURCHASER FURTHER CONSENTS TO THE EXERCISE OF PERSONAL JURISDICTION BY ANY SUCH COURT WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH PROCEEDING. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to the order. Both parties are solely obligated to address and resolve all disputes associated with this Agreement or any order, including any damages or injuries to Purchaser’s affiliates, and all claims related to this Agreement or any order will be brought by purchaser in Maricopa County, Arizona as provided in this Agreement.
Any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether preexisting, present or future, and including, but not limited to, statutory, common law, intentional tort and equitable claims capable in law of being submitted to binding arbitration) arising from or relating to the Products or Services, the interpretation or application of this Agreement or any order or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from this Agreement or any order (including, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, relationships with third parties who are not signatories hereto), or Insight’s or any of its affiliates' advertising or marketing WILL BE RESOLVED BY FINAL CONFIDENTIAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION IN MARICOPA COUNTY, ARIZONA, INSTEAD OF IN COURT, except that (a) Purchaser may take claims to small claims court, if Purchaser qualifies for hearing by such court, and (b) if Purchaser fails to timely pay amounts due, Insight may assign Purchaser’s account for collection and the collection agency may pursue such claims in court limited strictly to the collection of the past due debt and any interest or cost of collection permissible under applicable law or this Agreement. Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. THE RULES GOVERNING ARBITRATION ARE DIFFERENT THAN THOSE IN COURT. ARBITRATION DOES NOT INVOLVE A JUDGE OR JURY AND REVIEW IS LIMITED, BUT AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AS A COURT. EXCEPT AS MAY OTHERWISE BE PROVIDED IN THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION RULES OR AS OTHERWISE REQUIRED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, PURCHASER UNDERSTANDS THAT BY INITIATING THIS ARBITRATION PARAGRAPH PURCHASER IS GIVING UP PURCHASER’S RIGHT TO A TRIAL IN COURT OR ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEEDING, EITHER WITH OR WITHOUT A JURY, AS A MEANS BY WHICH TO SETTLE PURCHASER’S DISPUTE. Notwithstanding any choice of law provision included in this Agreement, this arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16).
Purchaser may not assign any of Purchaser’s rights or delegate any of Purchaser’s obligations under the Agreement without our prior written consent. Insight may assign or subcontract any or all of its rights or obligations and/or assign the right to receive payments hereunder to one or more qualified parties without Purchaser’s prior consent, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties in writing. Subject to the restrictions in assignment contained in this provision, the Agreement, including any SOW, will be binding on and inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and assigns.
- Force Majeure
Insight shall not be liable to Purchaser for any delay or failure by Insight to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement or otherwise if such delay or failure arises from any cause or causes beyond the reasonable control of Insight, including, but not limited to labor disputes, strikes or other labor disturbances, acts of nature, floods, lightning, shortages of materials, rationing, utility or communication failures, earthquakes, terrorism, casualty war, embargoes, blockages, actions, restrictions, or regulations or orders of any government agency or subdivision thereof.
Both parties agree, that during the term of this Agreement and for a one-year period after the termination or expiration of this Agreement, neither party will, directly or indirectly, solicit, offer employment or hire any current or former employee, contractor or consultant of the other party who has directly involved in the performance of this Agreement or any related SOW. This provision does not restrict the right of either party to solicit or recruit generally in the media and does not prohibit either party from hiring an employee of the other who answers any advertisement or who voluntarily applies for hire without having been initially personally solicited or recruited by the hiring party.
If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it will be regarded as severed from this Agreement and not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement. A delay or failure to exercise or partially exercise any right under the Agreement does not operate as a waiver, nor will it preclude future exercise of that right or permit, or sanction any subsequent breach of any term or condition. The provisions of this Agreement, which by sense and content are intended to survive, will survive the expiration or termination of the Agreement. The relationship between the parties is that of independent contractors and not that of employer/employee, partnership or joint venture. Electronic signatures (or copies of signatures sent via electronic means) are the equivalent of written and signed documents.
- Entire Agreement
This Agreement supersedes any prior representations or agreements, oral or written, and all other communications between the parties relating to Purchaser’s order. Any conflicting additional or different Agreement contained in any other agreement, invoice or SOW, as the case may be, are expressly rejected. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and a SOW, the SOW will govern with respect to such conflicting, additional or different terms.
