(a) Prices are valid for the period quoted by CI or for the applicable purchase agreement ordering period, whichever expires first. Product prices for an order remain valid for ninety (90) days from the original order date unless otherwise quoted by CI. Change orders that extend Delivery beyond those validity periods become new orders at prices in effect when CI receives the change orders. Support prices, except for Custom Support, may be changed by CI upon sixty (60) days written notice.
(b) Prices are exclusive of, and Customer will pay, applicable sales, use, consumption, goods and service, value added or like taxes, unless Customer has provided CI with an appropriate exemption certificate for the Delivery jurisdiction. Prices are exclusive of, and Customer will pay, all applicable import duties, if any.
(a) All orders are subject to acceptance by CI. Product orders must specify Delivery within ninety (90) days from order date, unless otherwise agreed or quoted by CI.
(b) Customer will specify “Ship To” addresses within the country where the order is placed, unless otherwise agreed.
CI will make reasonable efforts to meet Customer's Delivery requirements. If CI is unable to meet Customer's Delivery requirements, alternative arrangements may be agreed. In the absence of such agreement, Customer's sole remedy is to cancel the order.
Shipment, risk of loss or damage, and title
CI will ship according to CI's standard commercial practice, and risk of loss or damage will pass to Customer on delivery to shipper, Customer's carrier or designate.

Products purchased shall remain the property of CI until all payment amounts have been received in full.
Installation and acceptance

Installation and/or assembly by CI, when included in the purchase price, is deemed complete when the Product passes CI's standard installation and/or assembly, including any test procedures where applicable.

For Products with installation or assembly included in the purchase price, acceptance by Customer occurs upon completion of installation and/or assembly by CI.
