("Supplier") with general business offices at Corporate Office and with a Grainger supplier number of Supplier Number TBD sets forth the mutual understanding of the terms and conditions governing the parties’ relationship.




All Grainger purchases from Supplier shall be controlled by this Supplier Agreement, the Grainger Supplier Handbook, other requirements found at www.supplierconnect.com, and in Grainger’s Purchase Order Terms, all of which are incorporated by reference, and all of which are referred to hereinafter as this "Agreement". Supplier’s signature signifies its acceptance of the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. Grainger and Supplier acknowledge that this Agreement is not a guarantee of any specific volume purchase level.




The Initial Term is One (1) year(s) beginning Start Date and ending End Date for this Agreement. This Agreement’s term will automatically renew for successive One (1) year periods (each a "Renewal Term").




a. Products means all items offered for sale by Supplier to Grainger ("Products"). Prices that Supplier charges Grainger are based on Supplier’s quotation of costs for Products ("Product Cost Quotation"), dated Quotation Date which is attached, as Exhibit A and incorporated by reference herein. Grainger’s purchase price for Products, exclusive of shipping, is the product cost set forth in the Product Cost Quotation ("Product Cost"). Grainger will not accept additional charges or fees such as minimum order fees, charges or surcharges and will not be held to minimum order quantities.


The attached Product Cost Quotation shall be binding on Supplier and shall not change through the Product Cost Cycle (as defined below) for which it is submitted, or for another period as mutually agreed upon in writing. "Product Cost Cycle" means any twelve month period beginning on February 1 and ending on January 31. In order for Grainger to consider any proposed changes to a Product Cost Quotation for the next Product Cost Cycle, a written request for such changes must be received by Grainger by July 1 of the current Product Cost Cycle. If Supplier does not request any changes to a Product Cost Quotation by July 1 of any given Product Cost Cycle, the Product Cost Quotation shall be binding on Supplier and shall not increase through the next Product Cost Cycle. In all cases, any changes to a Product Cost Quotation must be approved in writing by Grainger, and such approved changes shall remain in effect for the Product Cost Cycle for which they were approved by Grainger.


b. If Supplier violates paragraph 3a. by raising Product Cost without Grainger approval, Grainger may pay such increased Product Cost in view of its constraints in substituting other Products. If it does so, however, Grainger shall not have waived any rights or remedies it may have against Supplier, and it reserves the right to assess Supplier with charges, debits or setoffs on account of Supplier raising Product Cost without its approval.




c. Product Cost and shipping charges for purchases under this Agreement will not exceed the lowest Product Cost and shipping charges in effect for any of Supplier’s other customers with similar distribution channels and similar purchase volumes for the same or similar Products on or about the date that a purchase order is accepted by Supplier.

OxySureR will examine the product and decide, at its sole discretion, if it’s covered under this limited warranty. OxySure® will then, at its sole discretion, either repair the defective product or replace it with the same or a comparable product. In these cases, OxySure® will pay for the cost of replacements, repairs, spare parts, labor and shipping costs, if and where applicable. This does not apply to any repair work or replacement not expressly authorized by OxySure® in writing. Replacement parts, if any, become the property of OxySure®. If the item is no longer sold by OxySure®, OxySure® will provide an appropriate replacement. It is OxySure® that, in its sole discretion, determines what constitutes an appropriate replacement. THIS REMEDY SHALL BE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY.


Conditions for Limited Warranties:


The limited warranties are valid from original date of acceptance by the end user of the product. The original purchase receipt or purchase order, together with proof of payment (if applicable) is required as proof of purchase.


The limited warranties do not apply to normal wear and tear of products or to products that have been stored or shipped incorrectly, including storage or shipment under environmental conditions outside of those conditions specified by OxySure®. Furthermore, the limited warranties do not apply to products that have been used inappropriately, abused, misused, altered, or cleaned with incorrect cleaning methods or incorrect cleaning products. The limited warranties do not cover normal wear and tear, cuts or scratches, or damage caused by impacts or accidents. The limited warranties do not cover defects in appearance, cosmetic, decorative items or any non-operative parts. The limited warranties do not apply if the product serial number has been removed, defaced or altered. Further, the limited warranties are not applicable if the products have been stored outdoors or in humid environments, or if the products have been otherwise not stored at room temperature.


Warranty coverage terminates if the original purchaser sells or otherwise transfers the product, unless the original purchaser is an authorized distributor of OxySure® products; in such event, coverage is transferred to the original customer of such distributor (the “end user”). Warranty coverage also terminates if the end user sells or otherwise transfers the product. No OxySure® reseller, agent, or employee is authorized to make any modification, extension, or addition to this warranty.




Some states and provinces do not allow the limitation or exclusion of incidental or consequential damage, so this limitation may not apply to you.


Care instructions:


To be able to claim the limited warranty you need to follow the specific instructions for the products, including, but not limited to, the “Instructions for Use”.


How country, provincial and state law applies:


This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from country to country, state to state or province to province.


Procedure for Claims Under Limited Warranties:


No product may be returned directly to OxySure® without first contacting OxySure® for a Return Material Authorization ("RMA") number. If it is determined that the product may be defective, you will be given an RMA number and instructions for product return. An unauthorized return, i.e. one for which an RMA number has not been issued, may be returned to you at your expense. Authorized returns are to be shipped prepaid and insured to the address on the RMA in an approved shipping container. Your original box and packaging materials should be kept for storing or shipping your product. To obtain warranty service, an original purchase receipt or purchase order, together with proof of payment (if applicable) is required as proof of purchase. OxySure® retains the exclusive right to either repair or replace the unit at its sole discretion.
