  3. Local Safety Standards and Regulations
    Products sold by FSI are designed to meet stated safety standards and regulations of the United States of America.

  7. Hazardous Substance Notices
    For any Products that contain hazardous materials or substances, the following shall apply:

    3. Please be advised that Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are NOT enclosed with all orders that require an MSDS under the Hazard Communication Standard (1910.1200). If You would like a Material Safety Data Sheet before You order, You can request a MSDS by contacting our Customer Service department by calling 800-752-8460 or emailing them. The information and recommendations contained on the MSDS supplied by the manufacturer are generally considered to be accurate and reliable. However, be advised that FSI makes no warranty with respect to the accuracy or reliability of the information or the suitability of the recommendations. Further, FSI disclaims any and all liability to any user thereof.

    4. MSDS for Products containing OSHA defined hazardous substances are available on our Site or upon request by contacting our Sales Department at 1-800-647-5368 or by contacting us by email. Provided, however, that if a Product is no longer sold by FSI, then the MSDS associated with the discontinued Product shall no longer be available.

  9. Right to Cancel
    FSI may without notice cancel, terminate and/or rescind all or part of an Order in the event of Your breach or if You fail to perform any of Your obligations in any material respect, or in the event You become insolvent or proceedings are instituted by or against You under any provisions of any federal or state bankruptcy or insolvency laws or You cease Your operations. Time is of the essence to each Order. The remedies herein are cumulative and are in addition to any other remedies provided at law or equity. Neither party shall be liable to the other for any delay or failure due to war, acts of terror, riots, embargoes, accidents, fires or acts of God which are beyond the party’s reasonable control; provided however if any such event extends for more than ten (10) days the other party may cancel this Agreement with further liability to the other.

  10. Limitation of Liability
    In no event shall FSI’s liability to You exceed the actual purchase price for the Product(s) giving rise to any such liability. Further, and without limiting the foregoing, in no event shall FSI be liable to You for any form of consequential, punitive, special, incidental or similar type damages, even if You advised FSI of the likelihood of any such damages.

  11. Indemnification of FSI
    You agree to reimburse, indemnify, hold harmless, save and defend at Your sole cost and expense, FSI from and against all damage, loss, expenses, including all attorneys fees, claim, liability or penalty, including without limitation, claims of infringement of patents, copyrights, trademarks, unfair composition, bodily injury, property or other damage, arising out of any use of the Products. You shall not be relieved of the foregoing indemnity and related obligations by allegations or any claim of negligence on the part of FSI; provided, however, You shall not remain or be liable hereunder to the extent any injury or damage is finally judicially determined to have been proximately caused by the sole negligence of FSI. You will maintain adequate insurance to cover any such potential liability under each Order.

  12. Compliance with Laws
    You agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the various states and of the United States of America, without regard to the locality where Your purchase originates, even if outside the United States of America.

  13. Governing Law; Venue
    The parties agree that this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Mississippi, United States of America, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules. The provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code as adopted by the State of Mississippi, and not the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, shall apply. The parties hereby irrevocably consent to the sole and exclusive personal and subject matter jurisdiction of and venue in the United States district court for the Southern District of Mississippi, in Jackson, Mississippi, or if federal subject matter jurisdiction does not exist, then in the courts of the State of Mississippi, located in Rankin County. You hereby waive any right to a trial before a jury.

  14. Arbitration
    1. Informal Dispute Resolution: We have found that most Customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to Your satisfaction by contacting our Customer Service team. You and FSI agree to try to resolve disputes informally before resorting to arbitration. If the dispute cannot be resolved informally, You agree to notify us of the dispute by sending a written description of Your claim so that we can attempt to resolve it with You. If we do not satisfactorily resolve Your claim within 30 calendar days of receiving notice of it, then You may pursue the claim in arbitration. Neither You nor we may initiate arbitration without first providing the other notice of the claim and following the informal dispute resolution procedure provided in this section.

    2. Arbitration Procedures: You and FSI agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act applies. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, You acknowledge and agree, as a material inducement for FSI to sell you the Products, that actions by FSI for nonpayment by You of the purchase price of Products sold by FSI or for redress of other breaches by You of this Agreement may be brought by FSI, at its option, before any judicial court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to the “Governing Law; Venue” Section above.

      At FSI’s sole option, disputes between You and FSI, including all claims for non-performance by FSI, shall be finally settled by arbitration in Rankin County, Mississippi, United States of America under the Rules of the American Arbitration Association, which Rules with respect to matters not regulated by them shall incorporate the UNCITRAL arbitration rules by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with said Rules applying this Agreement and consistent provisions of the internal laws (except conflict of law rules) of the State of Mississippi, United States of America.

      To initiate arbitration, You must send us a letter requesting arbitration and describing Your claims. You must also comply with the AAA’s rules regarding initiation of arbitration, including payment of all filing fees. Each party shall be responsible for its own costs and expenses including attorneys’ fees and costs unless otherwise determined by the arbitrator pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or applicable law.

      You and FSI agree that an arbitrator may only award such relief as a court of competent jurisdiction could award, limited to the same extent as a court would limit relief pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. An arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees and costs if a court would be authorized to do so, and may issue injunctive or declaratory relief if that relief is required or authorized by the applicable law, but that injunctive or declaratory relief may not extend beyond You and Your dealings with us.

    3. Class Action Waiver: You and FSI agree that all claims or disputes between You and FSI will be arbitrated individually, and that there will be no class, representative, or consolidated actions in arbitration. If You or we bring a claim in small claims court, the class action waiver will apply, and neither of the parties can bring a claim on a class or representative basis. Furthermore, neither You nor we may participate in a class or representative action as a class member if the class action asserts claims that would fall within the scope of this arbitration agreement if they were directly asserted by You or us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this arbitration agreement shall not prohibit You or us from participating in any judgment or settlement in any litigation brought by a federal, state, or local government on behalf of You or us, excluding litigation brought by any relator or party in its capacity as a private attorney general. We both agree that this class action waiver is an essential part of our arbitration agreement and that if this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable by any court or arbitrator then the entire arbitration agreement set forth in this section will not apply to any claim or dispute between You and us. This class action waiver may not be severed from our arbitration agreement.

  15. Force Majeure
    FSI shall not be liable for any delay in or impairment of performance resulting in whole or in part from Acts of God, severe weather conditions, labor disruptions, governmental decrees or controls, strikes, insurrections, war risks, shortages, inability to procure or ship the Product or any other circumstances or causes beyond the actual control of FSI in the conduct of its business.

  16. Grant of Security Interest
    For sales on an open account, You hereby grant to FSI a first priority lien, purchase money security interest and/or chattel mortgage in the Products and any accounts receivable or cash from resale thereof until FSI has been paid in full. Further, upon written direction from FSI, You agree to file at Your sole cost and expense any financing statements or other appropriate document with the appropriate governmental entity(ies) to ensure the validity, priority, and enforceability of the lien. In addition to the foregoing, and without limitation, You agree to immediately inform FSI if a) You intend to use any import financing, b) have granted a lien or security interest on inventory to any third party, or c) will be granting a lien or security interest on inventory to any third party.
