Effective: November 10, 2009
  1. 1. GENERAL. These terms govern the sale, license or delivery of any goods (including licenses) or services (hereinafter, “Items”) as specified on the front page hereof (the “Order”) from Mirion to the purchaser (“Buyer”). Acceptance of this Order is limited to these terms and conditions. Any proposal for additional or different terms and conditions is rejected.
  2. 2. INVOICES/PAYMENT. Invoices shall contain item number and/or description, quantity, and unit price. Buyer shall pay undisputed invoices no later than 30 days from date of the invoices. If reimbursable travel expenses are invoiced, Mirion shall submit an itemization and documentation of any such expenses. Payments shall be in US Dollars, or as otherwise specified on the invoice. Mirion will not be responsible for any currency rate changes. Orders for standard Items on price lists may be cancelled with a restocking charge of (i) 20% if cancelled 60 days or more before scheduled delivery, or (ii) 35% if less than 60 days. Orders for non-standard Items and orders that have shipped may not be cancelled or returned
  3. 3. TAXES. All amounts exclude sales, services, or withholding taxes, or customs duties, and other taxes and charges, insurance, and shipping costs and special packaging requested by Buyer, if any. If any withholding taxes apply, Buyer will gross up the invoiced amount to ensure that, after such withholding, Mirion receives the full amount invoiced. Buyer will supply Mirion with an appropriate tax exemption certificate, if Buyer claims exemption from any tax, charge or duty.
  4. 4. DELIVERY.

    4.1.Delivery will be EXW (Incoterms 2010) Mirion’s site. Mirion will estimate delivery dates and will not be in breach of its obligations, or liable, to Buyer because of any partial delivery or because of any delivery made within a reasonable time after the estimated delivery date. The Items will be delivered for shipment in standard commercial packaging. Special or export packaging may be separately invoiced.

    4.2.Mirion will estimate the delivery dates for Customer’s order. Both full and partial deliveries are authorized hereunder, and Mirion shall not be liable for, nor shall Mirion be in breach of, its obligations to Customer because of any partial delivery made at the time of scheduled delivery or because of any delivery made within a reasonable time after the stated delivery date. Mirion may change any delivery date and such date shall become the agreed upon delivery date unless Customer objects to such date in writing.

    4.3.When dosimeters are provided to Customer, the fees paid by Customers constitute fees for the provision of the Services and not for the tangible dosimeter itself, title to which is retained by Mirion.

  5. 5. WARRANTIES.

    5.1.Mirion warrants that (a) Items will be free from defect in design, workmanship and materials, and when used in accordance with Mirion’s instructions and requirements, will perform substantially in accordance with Mirion’s published technical specifications; and (b) services will be performed in a professional and workmanlike manner consistent with generally accepted industry standards (“Warranty”). The Warranty is valid for claims received by Mirion within twelve (12) months from the delivery date of the affected Items, and the services warranty is valid for claims received within ninety (90) days from performance of the services (each a, “Warranty Period”).

    5.2.All Warranty claims must be made in writing within the Warranty period and include a detailed description of the claim. Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy, and Mirion’s sole liability, will be for Mirion to use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Buyer with, in Mirion’s discretion either replacement or repaired Items, to conform to Mirion’s Limited Warranty, as set forth herein. For services warranty claims during the Warranty Period, Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy and Mirion’s sole liability will be, in Mirion’s discretion, to either re-perform the services, or refund the fees paid to Mirion for such defective services. All Item warranty repairs are performed at Supplier’s site. Buyer is responsible for all disassembly, reassembly and re-installation of the Item or sub-assembly in place before or after repair or replacement. Risks and costs resulting from transport of the Item or sub-assemblies related to the warranty services are the responsibility of the Buyer. Buyer may request that Supplier perform repairs at the location where the Item is installed. If Supplier so agrees, Buyer agrees that all of Supplier’s expenses resulting from travel (e.g. employee travel costs, shipping of Items and equipment required for the repairs, accommodation, travel time, and access to the installations) will be borne by Buyer.

    5.3.Buyer has no Warranty rights for contaminated Items or defects caused by (a) use of the Items with other goods or equipment not expressly specified in writing by Mirion as suited for use with the Items; (b) Buyer’s failure to follow Mirion’s instructions or to operate the Items under normal conditions; (c) acts or omissions of persons other than Mirion or its authorized representatives; (d) installation or maintenance of Items by someone other than Mirion or persons certified by Mirion; (e) abuse, use at an unsafe or not suitable site; (f) Force Majeure; or (f) normal wear and tear.

    5.4.Repairs or replacement under warranty will be warranted for the remaining duration of the original Warranty Period. Repairs outside of Warranty will be warranted for ninety (90) days.

    5.5.Once dosimeter(s) have been produced, Customer’s order is non-refundable and Customer’s subscription for services will automatically renew until canceled in writing. If Customer cancels a subscription, it will remain active for the remainder of the time period for which Customer paid, but Customer’s subscription will not automatically renew.

    5.6.All dosimeters remain the property of Mirion and must be returned at the end of each exchange period. A dosimeter (including controls) not returned 90 days after the end of the wear period, or received in damaged condition, will incur a non-refundable replacement charge for each dosimeter

MIRION’S AGGREGATE AND CUMULATIVE LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES HEREUNDER WILL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF FEES PAID, OR PAYABLE TO MIRION UNDER THE ORDER COVERED HEREBY, AND IF SUCH DAMAGES RELATE TO BUYER’S USE OF THE ITEMS, THEN SUCH LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO FEES PAID FOR THE RELEVANT ITEMS OR SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY. THESE LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the limitation of liability herein will not apply to Buyer’s liability for: (a) any infringement, misappropriation, unauthorized disclosure or misuse of Mirion’s proprietary information or intellectual property rights; or (b) any breach by the Buyer of Applicable Laws.

You agree to comply with all Applicable Laws and acknowledge that you will not directly or indirectly export or re-export any Items to any country to which such export or transmission is restricted or prohibited under Applicable Laws. Mirion makes no guarantees or assurances of the re-export licensability of any Items. Buyer agrees to defend and hold Mirion harmless from any claims, damages or liability resulting from the breach of any Applicable Laws.

Mirion retains all proprietary rights in and to all designs, engineering details and other data pertaining to any Items except where rights are assigned under written agreement by a corporate officer of Mirion.
