All orders are subject to acceptance at Seller’s corporate office, upon the terms and conditions set forth herein, and no order is binding upon Seller until such acceptance occurs. These terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between the parties and supersede any prior or contemporaneous representations, warranties, proposals, terms, conditions or agreements unless modified by writing signed by an authorized representative of Seller. No order is effective and complete until full payment is made.
At this time, Seller is not offering credit terms. All orders must be accompanied by pre-payment. Payment may be made by business credit card, ACH debit transaction, or institutional bank wire of immediately available funds.
A current product price list will be provided to you by an authorized agent or representative of Founder’s Hemp. Prices shown do not include any sales, excise or other government charge payable by Seller to federal, state or local authority. Any such taxes now or hereafter imposed upon sales or shipments will be added to the purchase price. Buyer agrees to reimburse Seller for any such tax or provide Seller with acceptable tax exemption or resale certificate for the state into which the products are delivered.
All products ordered by Buyer shall be shipped FOB Seller’s facilities located in Asheboro, North Carolina (or FOB Seller’s supplier’s facilities if products are to be shipped directly from such facilities). Buyer shall be responsible for all shipping costs to Buyer’s shipping destination as quoted by the USPS or other carrier based on the weight of the products and packaging, including the costs incurred for confirmed delivery, and Buyer shall bear all risk of loss following delivery of the product to the carrier at Seller’s facilities in Asheboro, North Carolina (or at Seller’s supplier’s facilities if products are to be shipped directly from such facilities). International shipping and shipping to destinations outside the mainland U.S. will necessarily involve increased shipping costs.
Founder’s Hemp offers free shipping to destinations in the U.S. within the contiguous 48 states, for all orders exceeding $1,500.
Delivery dates are estimated based upon conditions prevailing at the date of quotation and are subject to change in the event of a subsequent change in conditions which materially affect Seller’s manufacturing schedule or ability to acquire goods and materials necessary to complete Buyer’s order.
Wholesalers should expect delivery within two (2) weeks from order acceptance if all products are in-stock. Unless otherwise directed by the Buyer to ship back-ordered items separately and upon Buyer’s agreement to additional shipping charges, products are not shipped until the all items are available. Back-ordered products could cause delivery to take three (3) to five (5) weeks.

NO VERBAL STATEMENTS BY SELLER’S AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES, MADE BEFORE OR AFTER THE DATE OF THIS ORDER, AND NO SAMPLES SUBMITTED TO BUYER, SHALL BE CONSTRUED AS CREATING ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, FROM SELLER.
If Buyer has reason to believe that Seller’s product does not conform with the limited express warranty stated above and written notice is provided to Seller within the Warranty Period, then upon verification of product defect in breach of Seller’s limited express warranty, evidenced in a manner as Seller may require, including return of the product to Seller, freight prepaid to Seller’s facility in Asheboro, NC, Seller will, at its option, (1) furnish to Buyer a replacement product without charge, delivered to Buyer freight prepaid by Seller, or (2) issue to the account of Buyer a credit equivalent to the purchase price for the product. Replacement of a product will not extend the Warranty Period.
THE FOREGOING SHALL BE BUYER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY DEFECT OR NONCONFORMITY IN SELLER’S PRODUCT WHICH CONSITUTES A BREACH OF SELLER’S LIMITED EXPRESS WARRANTY AND IN NO EVENT SHALL BUYER BE ENTITLED TO CLAIM OR RECOVER ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTAL DAMAGES FROM SELLER OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION COSTS, LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUE, OVERHEAD, INJURY TO REPUTATION OR LOSS OF CUSTOMERS, DOWN TIME OR LOSS OF USE, EVEN IF SELLER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

The provisions of this contract allocate between Seller and Buyer the risks regarding any claim related to Seller’s products and Seller’s pricing to Buyer reflects such allocation of risk and the contractual limitation of Seller’s liability stated herein.
No order in the process of production is subject to cancellation, deferment or change in terms without written agreement by Seller.

If any provision of this contract is or becomes, at any time, under any law, rule, or regulation, unenforceable or invalid, no other provision of this contract shall be affected thereby and the remaining provisions of this contract shall continue with the same effect as if such unenforceable or invalid provisions shall not have been inserted in this contract.
