Terms and Conditions
3P Processing wishes to remind you of the following established practices of the metal finishing industry in processing your materials.
This quote is based upon the information provided by the company requesting the quote. If the information provided is incorrect, insufficient or unclear, we reserve the right to adjust the quote as appropriate.
It is generally recognized that even after employing all the science known to us, and capable employees with years of training, there still remains hazards in the electroplating and metal finishing fields. As a consequence, in order to avoid misunderstandings, we have set forth the following guidelines in which your material will be accepted by us for processing.
Whenever we are given material with detailed instructions as to treatment, our responsibility shall end with the carrying out of those instructions. Type of material, tolerances and specifications for processing shall be declared in writing prior to our processing.
Our liability for any cause is limited to the cost of direct labor and material of the product directly damaged by our processing, the cost of processing or three times our processing charges on such material, whichever is the lesser. This limitation of liability includes but is not limited to scrap and/or loss for any reason that results in shipped quantity discrepancies. 3P will not be liable for any consequential damages. Charges for our services are based on this Policy limiting our liability. Liability greater than outlined will not be assumed by 3P without prior written agreement. In such an event a higher charge may be made for our services.
Parts, materials, etc. as processed by us shall be presumed to be accepted as satisfactory by you if we are not notified of damages, shortages or other discrepancies within ten working days of your receipt of the same.
Where operations or processes performed by us are in the nature of “salvaging” parts or material, the work is accepted on a “best effort” basis and no liability shall attach to us unless previously agreed upon in writing prior to processing the job.
In the event that results of metal finishing operations are unsatisfactory due to metal imperfections, change in grade of composition of materials, manufacturing and/or fabrication imperfections, usage for which the plating or other finishing operation was not reasonably designed, and similar variables over which we have no control, the customer will be required to pay the contracted amount for the finishing operation performed.
All freight costs are the responsibility of the buyer unless otherwise agreed upon in writing. All invoice terms are net 30 unless agreed upon by 3P Processing Accounting Department. Prices on purchase orders are honored only if quoted by 3P. If you believe that any invoice is incorrect or if you wish to dispute any invoice, you must notify us in writing within 60 day of your receipt of the invoices. We reserve the right to charge interest on any invoice that is not paid within 30 days of invoice date.
If you fail to pay any invoice when due, we reserve the right to suspend performance of our services until your account is paid in full or you have made other payment arrangements satisfactory to us. Our suspension of services will not affect your obligations to us under the purchase order or these Terms.
We are sure you will agree with us that the above guidelines are realistic and reasonable and that acceptance of the material for processing subject to such terms and conditions will permit us to continue to provide quality metal finishing at an economical price.
