ChemDAQ's Terms & Conditions
1. Agreement: These Terms and Conditions constitute a binding contract between the Customer and ChemDAQ Inc. (ChemDAQ) and are referred to herein as either the "Terms and Conditions" or this "Agreement". Customer expressly accepts these Terms and Conditions by making a purchase from or placing an order with ChemDAQ or its authorized agents, otherwise requesting products (the "Products") or engaging ChemDAQ or its authorized agents to perform or procure any Services.
2. Scope: These Terms and Conditions posted on the ChemDAQ website (www.chemdaq.com) at the time Customer places an order, signs a Statement of Work or renews a contract will constitute the terms and conditions for the term of that agreement, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by ChemDAQ and the Customer. For Pay Per Exchange (PPX) agreements, the Terms and Conditions in effect on the date of the most recent invoice shall apply. ChemDAQ reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time; however, the terms and conditions in effect at the beginning of the contract will apply for the full term of the contract.
3. Subject Matter: For purposes of this agreement, the Products include the components of a gas monitoring system and any other product that ChemDAQ may offer for sale or lease. In addition, Services may be provided including those related to the commissioning, calibration, maintenance and repair of the Products, as well as user training and consulting services. Note: ChemDAQ gas sensors are not included in the purchase of gas monitoring Products and remain the property of ChemDAQ. For the purposes of this agreement, the term ‘sensor’ applies to a ChemDAQ sensor module.
4. Taxes: All applicable taxes, tariffs, and other governmental charges shall be paid by the Customer and are the Customer's responsibility, except as limited by law. For US Customers, sales taxes will be invoiced by ChemDAQ for payment to the State where ChemDAQ Products are delivered to, unless Customer provides documentary evidence that they are exempt from State sales taxes.

5. Payment: For purchase of goods and/or services from ChemDAQ, Customer agrees to pay fifty percent (50%) down on placement of order and to pay the balance within 30 days of the later of the receipt of invoice from ChemDAQ or the receipt of goods and/or services from ChemDAQ; unless a different payment schedule is agreed to in writing.
6. Delivery of System: Customer and ChemDAQ will agree on the delivery and commissioning dates. ChemDAQ will arrange for delivery through a carrier chosen by ChemDAQ, the costs and terms of which shall be F.O.B. ChemDAQ Inc.
7. Risk of Loss: The risk of loss from any casualty to the system during shipment to the Customer, regardless of the cause, will be the responsibility of the Customer except for the period when ChemDAQ has actual physical control of the system during the commissioning process.
8. Installation of Fixed Systems: For orders including fixed gas monitoring systems that require commissioning by ChemDAQ personnel, Customer and ChemDAQ will agree on an installation plan for the system comprising location of system components, electrical connections between system components at Customer’s facilities and location of power outlets.
a. Customer agrees to install wall boxes, run wiring, and provide power outlets and other components as agreed in the installation plan.
b. ChemDAQ will perform final commissioning and verification of the hardware and software at the Customer’s site at a mutually agreed date and time.
c. If the site isn't ready for commissioning as described in section a) when the ChemDAQ technician arrives, he or she will leave without completing the commissioning and the Customer will be forfeit the commissioning payment and the Customer will have to purchase another commissioning and schedule a time and date to have ChemDAQ come back.
d. Customers who install their own equipment without ChemDAQ commissioning the system are responsible for any immediate or subsequent problems arising from the installation and any such problems are outside of ChemDAQ’s warranty.
9. Customer Installation Responsibilities: For installations in potentially wet environments, the CUSTOMER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THAT THE SENSOR DOES NOT GET WET. IF THE SENSOR DOES GET WET, ITS PERFORMANCE MAY BE COMPROMISED AND IT MAY NO LONGER DETECT GAS PROPERLY OR AT ALL, AND THE SENSOR SHOULD BE REPLACED. The Customer must ensure that the monitor is mounted in a location where the monitor is not exposed to constant sprays or mists. If the location is subject to wash-down, the monitor must be covered prior to wash-down sufficiently well to prevent the sensor from getting wet, and, where applicable, the plug must be installed prior to wash-down. THE COVER AND THE PLUG (when applicable) MUST BE REMOVED AFTER WASH-DOWN, OTHERWISE THE MONITOR WILL NOT DETECT THE TARGET GAS. The sensor includes an indicator that shows if the sensor was contacted by liquid water. If a replacement sensor is needed, contact ChemDAQ immediately. Replacement sensors due to water damage that are required in addition to those replacement sensors through the Sensor Usage Agreement (see section 18) will incur an additional fee of $600 per sensor.
10. Limitation of Liability: EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT, CHEMDAQ MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL CHEMDAQ, ITS REPRESENTATIVES, DISTRIBUTORS, SUBCONTRACTORS OR ITS VENDORS BE LIABLE TO THE CUSTOMER OR CUSTOMER’S STAFF OR EMPLOYEES FOR ANY OTHER SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFIT OR LOSS OF USE, ARISING OUT OF THE SALE, MANUFACTURE OR USE OF ANY PRODUCTS SOLD OR SERVICES RENDERED HEREUNDER WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS PLEADED IN CONTRACT OR IN TORT, INCLUDING STRICT LIABILITY IN TORT.
ChemDAQ will be responsible for the repair, re-calibration or replacement (at ChemDAQ’s option) of any Products rendered unserviceable to the Customer solely as the result of negligent acts or misjudgment of ChemDAQ’s personnel while servicing the Products. Correction of non-conformities, whether patent or latent, in the manner and within the time provided above shall constitute the entire liability of ChemDAQ with respect to such Products whether in contract, warranty, tort, strict liability, or otherwise. In no event will ChemDAQ be responsible for, or liable to, the Customer or Customer’s staff or employees in excess of its obligation to repair, recalibrate or replace the Products covered under this contract.

16. Limited Warranty: ChemDAQ products are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from the earlier of the date of commissioning by ChemDAQ, or 120 days after the date of shipment, except where otherwise stated in writing by ChemDAQ. The limited warranty corresponds to the Warranty Service Plan described below.
17. Warranty Service Plan: The following terms will apply to the ChemDAQ warranty:
a. The product warranty will cover all repairs of Products supplied by ChemDAQ. This agreement includes all parts and labor from the date of commissioning of the Products by a ChemDAQ authorized technician if commissioned within 120 days of shipment. If the Products do not require commissioning by ChemDAQ or if the Products are not commissioned by a ChemDAQ authorized technician within 120 days of shipment, then the warranty period will start from the date of shipment. The warranty does not cover customer on-site repairs or in-service training.
b. All repair work must be performed by authorized ChemDAQ service technicians. The warranty does not apply to service made necessary by accident, fire, theft, neglect, abuse, misuse, water damage, deterioration caused by chemicals that are not in normal operations or repairs made necessary by personnel other than those authorized by ChemDAQ.
c. The Customer must receive authorization from ChemDAQ prior to returning any malfunctioning Products for repair, and Customers receiving authorization will be given a Returned Material Authorization (RMA) number. The Customer will be responsible for requesting the required shipping documents from a carrier that ChemDAQ specifies. Should the Customer fail to fulfill the return shipping requirements, the Customer will be responsible for any damage that occurs to the Products during shipping. For Products returned under an RMA, the RMA number must be prominently visible on the outside of the package returned to ChemDAQ.
d. Loaner equipment may be provided when necessary to minimize down time due to repairs. Following the Customer’s receipt of the repaired equipment, the loaner equipment must be returned to ChemDAQ within ten (10) business days if the Customer is located within the US and fifteen (15) business days if the customer is located outside the US. If some or all of the equipment is not returned to ChemDAQ within this period, the Customer agrees to pay the current list price for any equipment not returned.
e. Accessories and expendables such as printer paper, ink cartridges, computer disks, air filters and filter media are not covered under the warranty.
The Warranty Service includes telephone support and loaner replacement (where applicable) in the event that ChemDAQ Products malfunction, and the cost of parts and labor for factory repair of the Products. The Warranty service does not include on-site support. On-site support may be available for an additional fee. Contact ChemDAQ for further information.
All Customers receive the Warranty Service Plan for their first year after purchasing ChemDAQ equipment for no additional charge.
18. Extended Warranty: The warranty period may be extended through the purchase of an Extended Warranty Service plan. The conditions of the Warranty described above also apply to the Extended Warranty Service Plan. The cost of the Extended Warranty Service Plan after the first year is calculated as a percentage of the current list price of the equipment owned by the Customer and the duration of the term. Customers electing the Extended Warranty agree to pay the Extended Warranty fee; payment to be made in advance of the start of the term of the agreement.
Sensor Usage Agreement
19. Sensor Usage: In order for the Customer’s gas monitors to function correctly, the monitors must have sensors installed, and the sensors must be within their calibration period. ChemDAQ will provide sensors for the term of the Sensor Usage Agreement for use with Customer’s monitors. In order to ensure that calibrated sensors are installed, ChemDAQ will:
a. Track when factory calibrated sensors are required;
b. Ship factory calibrated sensors to the Customer at an interval determined by ChemDAQ;
c. Notify the customer of the shipping details; and
d. Provide telephone support for Sensor usage.
The Customer will install these factory calibrated sensors in the gas monitors and promptly return the expired sensors back to ChemDAQ. ChemDAQ reserves the right to change the interval between shipment of sensors and the number of sensors shipped per monitor over the term of the Sensor Usage Agreement.
20. Sensor Exchange: It is the Customer’s responsibility to exchange the old sensor(s) for the new pre-calibrated sensor(s) and return the old sensor(s) to ChemDAQ within 10 business days for customers within the United States and 15 business days for customers located outside the United States. ChemDAQ will provide Customers within the United States with a pre-paid return shipping label. Unless agreed to otherwise, customs fees and import duties (where applicable), are the responsibility of the customer and will be billed separately.
21. Sensors out of Calibration: ChemDAQ gas and vapor sensors are designed to keep workers safe. ChemDAQ makes no warranty that sensors used outside their calibration period will perform within the sensor specifications. Continued use of the sensor beyond their calibration expiration date is potentially dangerous and ChemDAQ reserves the right to disable sensors used beyond their calibration expiration date.
22. Lost Sensors: If the sensors are not returned to ChemDAQ within 10 business days of the Sensor Exchange for Customers within the United States and 15 business days for Customers located outside the United States, the Customer agrees to pay a ‘lost sensor’ fee of $1,500 per sensor.
23. Ownership of Sensors: Sensors will remain the property of ChemDAQ and must be returned to ChemDAQ at the termination of the Sensor Usage Agreement, if the Agreement is not renewed or if the customer ceases to use the monitor. NOTE: THE GAS MONITOR(S) WILL NOT DETECT GAS WITHOUT A SENSOR.
24. Sensor Usage Agreement Term: Customers may have Fixed Term sensor usage agreements (typically one year), or PPX sensor usage agreements.
a. For customers with Fixed Term sensor usage agreements, the Sensor Usage Agreement term is as stated on the Quote, Invoice or Sensor Usage and Extended Warranty Form. In addition, the following conditions apply to the Fixed Term sensor usage agreements.
b. Sensor Usage Payment: Customer agrees to pay the Sensor Usage Agreement fee for the entire term of the Sensor Usage Agreement, payment to be made within 30 days of receipt of an undisputed invoice.
c. Restoral Fee: Customers who do not renew their Sensor Usage agreement on time agree to pay restoral fee. This restoral fee is calculated as a ten percent (10%) of the next sensor Usage Agreement fee.
d. Non-Renewal of the Sensor Usage Agreement: If the Customer notifies ChemDAQ of the Customer’s intent not to renew the Sensor Usage Agreement, the Customer shall return the sensors to ChemDAQ within 10 business days of the termination of the Sensor Usage Agreement if Customer site is located within the United States and 15 business days if the Customer site is located outside the United States, otherwise the Customer agrees to pay the ‘lost sensor’ fee.
e. Renewal of PPX Customers: For customers with PPX Sensor Usage Agreements, ChemDAQ will provide a quote for the PPX service and then ChemDAQ will ship sensors upon receipt of a purchase order. The time interval will depend on sensor type, but is most commonly four months.
ChemDAQ will periodically supply factory calibrated sensors to the customer at a frequency determined by ChemDAQ based on the types of sensor employed and information about the Customer’s location. The customer may terminate the Sensor Usage Agreement upon 90 days notice, and the termination becomes effective upon the return of the sensors to ChemDAQ, or notification to ChemDAQ that the sensors and the appropriate lost sensor fees have been paid.
25. Sensor Condition: The sensors are designed to be operational almost immediately upon installation in, or connection to, the gas monitor; however, there is a small risk that sensors may be damaged during shipment. It is the Customer’s responsibility to determine the condition of the sensor(s) upon receipt of any sensors and report any deficiencies to ChemDAQ promptly.
26. Wet Environments: The customer is responsible to ensure that the sensor does not get wet. IF THE SENSOR DOES GET WET, ITS PERFORMANCE MAY BE COMPROMISED AND IT MAY NO LONGER DETECT GAS PROPERLY OR AT ALL, AND SO THE SENSOR SHOULD BE REPLACED. The sensor includes an indicator that shows if the sensor was contacted by liquid water. If a replacement sensor is needed, contact ChemDAQ immediately. Replacement sensors due to water damage that are required in addition to those replacement sensors through the Sensor Usage program (see section 18), will incur an additional fee of $600 per sensor.
27. Sensor Shipment: Scheduled shipments of sensor(s) will be made to the Responsible Person at the Customer’s facility. The Responsible Person is designated by the Customer and is usually the person who will be performing the sensor exchange and returning the old sensor(s).
28. Sensor Warranty: Sensors are subject to the following limited warranty for the term of the Sensor Usage Program. If ChemDAQ is notified that a sensor failure has occurred, a pre-calibrated replacement sensor will be provided, if in ChemDAQ’s judgment sending a new sensor is likely to resolve the issue. CHEMDAQ MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES FOR THE SENSOR, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL CHEMDAQ, ITS REPRESENTATIVES, DISTRIBUTORS, SUBCONTRACTORS OR ITS VENDORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY OTHER SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFIT OR LOSS OF USE, ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF THE SENSORS WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS PLEADED IN CONTRACT OR IN TORT, INCLUDING STRICT LIABILITY IN TORT.
