The Proposal states the prices and validity time frame from the date of the Proposal (“Proposal Date”) and are subject to credit approval. If, in Company’s sole discretion, Purchaser (as defined herein) does not have sufficient credit, Company may terminate the Proposal. The price set forth in the Proposal is Company’s good faith estimated based on the information received by Company from Purchaser and is subject to change based on actual field measurements, placement, and other information in contravention of the details provided by Purchaser. The buyer identified in the Proposal (“Purchaser”) is responsible for paying any and all applicable sales or use tax. Note that if any sales or use tax is itemized in the Proposal such sales or use tax is an estimate and may change from the Proposal Date to when the Project is completed. The final invoice will reflect the Company’s best estimate of the correct sales or use tax. Purchaser is ultimately responsible for all sales and use taxes. If the proposal involves installation, the installation pricing set forth in the Proposal covers install of Company supplied products only, unless otherwise specified in writing. Execution of this Proposal does not modify the estimated completion date set forth in Proposal or otherwise constitute project commencement and/or the beginning of the countdown to delivery or completion.
Thorough Purchaser review and pre-approval of the Proposal and all other designs or specifications related thereto is essential to accomplishing accurate production, delivery and construction of related goods or services set forth in the Proposal (collectively the “Project”). Purchaser must review and pre-approve any specifications, details, site plans, designs and/or renderings in the Proposal to ensure that the proposed Project fits within Purchaser’s space, complies with Purchaser’s color selections, the dimensions of the site in conjunction with the dimensions and footprint of the proposed Project, and otherwise satisfies all of Purchaser’s requirements (“Purchaser’s Requirements”). If the Project involves installation, surfacing, or the sales of goods, it is recommended that Purchaser’s architect and/or general contractor review and confirm that the proposed Project meets all of Purchaser’s Requirements. Color samples, if applicable to the Project, can be provided upon request. Subsequent to Purchaser approval (which shall be effective upon Purchaser’s execution of the Proposal), Company is not responsible for redesign of the Project, changes to the scope of the Project, or additional parts and labor to alleviate any potential interference of the Project with Purchaser’s building structure and mechanics, or to accommodate additional or altered access or egress around Project. Additionally, Company will not be responsible for color changes that differ from the Proposal renderings, if applicable.
Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that Purchaser’s authorized representative has reviewed the Proposal and confirmed full and satisfactory compliance with Purchaser’s Requirements. Purchaser hereby approves the Proposal for the Project including but not limited to all specifications, details, designs, site plan, and colors. ADDITIONALLY, BY EXECUTING THIS PROPOSAL, PURCHASER DOES HEREBY AGREE TO PURCHASE THE GOODS AND SERVICES DESCRIBED HEREIN, AND DOES HEREBY ACCEPT THE EXCLUSIVE TERMS AND CONDITIONS STATED BELOW IN THIS PROPOSAL.
Terms and Conditions
- Exclusive Terms of Purchase: The Proposal and the products and services contemplated therein (the “Agreement”) are limited to the Terms and Conditions contained in the Proposal and set out herein. Any additional or different terms proposed by Purchaser in any purchase order or other document are hereby deemed to be material alterations and notice of objection to them is hereby given. Any such proposed terms or conditions shall be void and the terms of this Proposal (as supplemented by Change Proposals, defined herein, and invoices from Company containing final calculations of any estimates provided herein) shall constitute the complete and exclusive statement of the Terms and Conditions of the Proposal between the parties. Company’s failure to object to conflicting, different, or additional terms and conditions in any other document shall not be deemed an acceptance of such terms and conditions or a waiver of the provisions hereof.
- Entire Agreement/Modification/Validity: The Agreement represents and contains the entire agreement between the parties, and such Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by and against the parties, their heirs, personal representatives, successors, and assigns, including successors by way of reorganization and/or liquidation. Prior discussion or oral representations by the parties not contained in the Agreement are not part of the Agreement. Purchaser hereby acknowledges that it has not received or relied upon any statements or representations by Company or its agents which are not expressly stipulated herein, including and without limitation, any statements as to the Project and the related goods, services and warranties provided hereunder. This Agreement can only be modified in a writing signed by the parties hereto or their duly authorized agents (“Change Proposal”). The invalidity of any portion of the Agreement shall not affect the force and effect of the remaining valid portions hereof.
- Payment, Title, Taxes: Purchaser shall pay Company for the Project within the time period indicated in the Proposal. If a down payment or advance payment is required pursuant to the Proposal, Purchaser must make such payment before Company is obligated to begin performance of the Project. Delays in payment may cause estimated shipment, performance and/or installation dates to change accordingly. Company retains all right, title and interest in and to the Project and all related goods and services until Purchaser has paid for the Project in full. Applicable state and/or local sales and use taxes are determined at the time of shipment and are the responsibility of the Purchaser. All materials, goods, and services will not be separately itemized on the invoice, unless requested by Purchaser, in which case Company will provide a separately itemized invoice at Purchaser’s cost.
- Shipping Terms: Unless otherwise specified in the Proposal, shipping terms are FOB Manufacturer’s facility via common carrier designated by Company.
- Services: In the event that the Proposal includes services, including but not limited to installation, cleaning, or repair, Company and/or its installation subcontractor will perform the work only in the locations agreed to by Company in the Proposal. The parties agree that service workdays are at Company’s discretion unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing and may be 10 to 12 hours/day, 7 days/week. If Purchaser restricts work hours/days, reasonable advance written notification is required. Holidays work schedules must be mutually agreed upon in writing; Company’s holiday schedule includes all Federal Holidays, along with the day before and the day after such Federal Holiday. Union labor and/or prevailing wages are not included in this Proposal, unless specifically noted therein. A signed Change Proposal is required for any additional installation fees or costs.
- Permits and Licenses: Purchaser shall apply for and obtain all necessary building and other governmental permits and licenses, which may be required in connection with the Project. Purchaser agrees to bear any costs or penalties incurred by Company related to Purchaser’s failure to obtain any such permits or licenses. Purchaser represents and warrants that it will comply with all applicable laws, including but not limited to any special requirements of local laws, ordinances and governmental regulations relating to the Project. Structural calculations and sealed/stamped drawings are not included with this Proposal. If applicable to the Project and required by Purchaser, such structural calculations and/or sealed/stamped drawings can be provided at an additional charge to Purchaser to be determined by Change Proposal.
- Site Readiness: Prior to Company commencing services, Purchaser must complete all work or other preparation necessary to ensure that Company and/or its installation subcontractor are able to safely perform the services, commence the Project, and/or install the goods on the premises specified in the Proposal (the “Premises”) pursuant to the Proposal. The Premises must be accessible, clean, clear, and free of other trades. If Purchaser has not, in Company’s sole discretion, acted reasonably to properly prepare the Premises, Company may elect to prepare the Premises and charge Purchaser $750.00/day/person, plus any other applicable expenses, for such preparation work. If Company determines that it and/or its installation subcontractor are unable to deliver and/or start services as scheduled as a result of Purchaser’s failure to adequately prepare the Premises for the Project, Company may elect to charge a change/remobilization fee which shall include actual costs incurred by Company, including lost profit, up to $2,500.00, and reschedule the services based upon Company’s availability.
- Unanticipated Conditions. If installation is required pursuant to the Proposal, in the event that unexpected soil conditions, such as subsurface rock, are encountered during installation, additional costs to the Purchaser will apply. Furthermore, in the event that Company encounters any unexpected and unanticipated on-site conditions during Company’s performance of services and/or Project (including but not limited to, floor space arrangement, use zones, interaction with other products, special effects, safety considerations, or weather) that result in necessary and/or requested alterations and/or additions to the Project (or parts thereof) to facilitate proper performance or that otherwise cause additional design, material, assembly, installation, and/or performance costs that are not already reflected in the Proposal amount (“Additional Costs”), Company will inform Purchaser and all such Additional Costs will be added to the final payment invoice or billed separately to Purchaser.
- Delivery and Disposal: Purchaser must provide prompt notice of any requested delivery date/performance changes and delays. No request for an estimated delivery date/performance change shall be effective without a signed Change Proposal. If goods for the Project have been loaded on to the carrier or otherwise have been prepared for loading on to carrier prior to Purchaser’s notice of date change, Company may charge no less than $80.00/day for on-site or off-site storage fees during the delay. In the event installation is required under the Proposal, the quoted installation price is predicated upon installation occurring within 100 feet of where the delivery truck is unloaded, and where the dumpster is located. Greater distances will result in additional charges. A dumpster is to be provided by Purchaser. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Company will use reasonable efforts to perform all services and deliver all goods in the estimated timeframes specifies in the Proposal, but all delivery schedules and services timelines are Company’s best estimates only and are not guaranteed.
- Risk of Loss/Receipt and Storage of Goods/Insurance: Unless otherwise specified in the Proposal and/or shipping terms, upon delivery of goods by Company to carrier, Purchaser assumes all risk of loss or destruction of or damage to such goods regardless of cause, and the occurrence of any such casualty shall not relieve Purchaser from its obligations hereunder and applicable invoices. Purchaser is responsible for and shall secure all goods stored on the Premises. Until such time as all amounts due hereunder are paid in full, Purchaser shall maintain adequate insurance to cover the goods against all losses, including but not limited to theft, fire, damage, destruction or other casualty.
- Restrictions. For Projects that include the sale of goods, until such time as all amounts due with respect to this Proposal/Agreement are paid in full, Purchaser shall not sell or lease, mortgage, pledge or encumber the Project or any goods related thereto, permit it to be levied upon or attached under any legal process, create or permit to be created any security interest therein (except that of Company hereunder) or otherwise dispose of the same or any of Purchaser’s rights therein. Until Purchaser has paid in full, Purchaser will not remove or permit the removal of the goods purchased by Purchaser in connection with the Project to any location other than the Premises.
- Purchase Money Security Interest. Purchaser hereby grants, pledges and assigns to Company, and Company hereby reserves a purchase money security interest in, the goods provided under the Proposal to secure the payment and performance in full of all of Purchaser’s obligations hereunder. Purchaser agrees that Company may file one or more financing statements to allow it to perfect, acquire and maintain a superior security interest in such goods
- Purchaser Default. The failure of Purchaser to make payment when due under any invoice issued by Company pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, or Purchaser’s failure to otherwise comply with the terms of this Agreement, shall constitute a default (“Event of Default”).
- Company Remedies. If an Event of Default shall occur, Company shall have all remedies available to it at law or equity (including, in the event of the sale of goods, all remedies afforded a secured creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code). Purchaser agrees to assist and cooperate with Company to accomplish its filing and enforcement of mechanic’s or other liens with respect to the goods or Company’s repossession of the Project, and Purchaser expressly waives all claims to a right to possess the Project and related goods after an Event of Default. All remedies are cumulative and not alternative, and no exercise by Company of a remedy, will prohibit or waive the exercise of any other remedy otherwise available against Purchaser or others.
- Delinquency Charges. Interest shall accrue on amounts past due and payable under this Proposal at the rate of eight (8) percent per annum, or at the then highest allowable interest rate per annum under the law of the state in which Purchaser’s principal office is located, whichever is less.

- Waiver. Company may in its sole discretion waive a default hereunder, or under any invoice or other agreement between Purchaser and Company, or cure such a default at Purchaser’s expense, but shall have no obligation to do either. No waiver shall be deemed to have taken place unless it is in writing, signed by Company. Any one waiver shall not constitute a waiver of other defaults or the same kind of default at another time, or a forfeiture of any rights provided to Company hereunder or under any Invoice.
- Purchaser’s Acceptance. Purchaser shall have ten (10) days following Company’s completion of the Project to inspect Company’s work. If Purchaser does not notify Company in writing of a defect in the Project within such ten (10) day period, the Project shall be deemed to accord with Purchaser’s Requirements and Purchaser shall be deemed to have accepted the Project.
- Limited Warranty and Limitation of Liability: In addition to any other warranties specified in the Proposal, with respect to any goods incorporated into the Project, applicable manufacturer’s warranties will apply, if assignable, and if not assignable then Company will assist Purchaser in obtaining the benefits of such warranties.

If changed or unanticipated conditions make additional services necessary or result in additional costs or time for performance (“Additional Services”), PlayCare will make reasonable efforts to notify Customer regarding the appropriate changes to the scope of services, price, and estimated schedule of completion. Customer acknowledges, however, that the existence of certain changed or unanticipated conditions may necessitate Additional Services by PlayCare in accordance with standard protocol and/or applicable law, and Customer authorizes PlayCare to take such actions and agrees to pay PlayCare’s standard rates and for any expenses reasonably incurred in connection with PlayCare’s performance of such Additional Services.

PlayCare will not be liable to Customer unless Customer gives written notice of the insufficiently performed services, reasonably described, to PlayCare prior to signing PlayCare’s work order acknowledgment or within 24 hours after completion of Service, whichever occurs first. PlayCare shall have the opportunity to reasonably verify Customer’s claim that the Services performed were defective, and PlayCare shall be given a reasonable opportunity to remedy the defects.

If PlayCare determines that it and/or its subcontractor are unable to deliver and/or start services as scheduled as a result of Customer’s failure to adequately prepare the job site for the Service or Customer’s cancellation with less than 48 hours’ prior notice, Customer shall pay to PlayCare a change/remobilization fee which shall include actual costs incurred by PlayCare, including lost profit, up to the full value of the Service, and reschedule the Service based upon PlayCare’s availability.
