By faxing, emailing, calling or mailing written orders to us, our customers accept our terms of delivery and payment. Prices are in US dollars. Freight, packing charges, applicable taxes and other surcharges are not included.
2. We strive to maintain our prices. However, periodic price increases may be necessary and are subject to 30 days notice. Should unusual price increases occur due to factors beyond our control (e.g., world shortages of raw material, natural disasters), Permalight® reserves the right to pass on the resultant price changes immediately.
3. First time orders are shipped Prepaid, C.O.D. or charged to Credit Card, unless other Payment Terms have been determined. Special Quotes may be given with special payment terms. Customers may apply for Net 30 Terms by submitting three credit references. If all credit references are acceptable, payment terms for subsequent orders are NET 30 DAYS FROM DATE OF INVOICE, i.e., payment must reach American Permalight® within 30 days of invoice date. 1.5% interest per month will be charged on past due accounts.
4. Custom-made products require a 50% deposit (regardless of any open credit terms!) The remaining payment is due on delivery of custom-made products (C.O.D.). We reserve the right to ship amounts slightly above or below the ordered quantity.
5. Terms of delivery: F.O.B. Torrance, California. The customer assumes the risk for shipment by common carrier. All claims for in-transit damage must immediately be filed directly with the carrier.

UPS shipments are automatically only insured up to $100 (one hundred)!! Any additional insurance desired can be quoted at an additional cost.
7. A written authorization is required from American Permalight® Inc. before returning merchandise. Credit will not be issued for unauthorized returns. Merchandise authorized for return shall be properly packed and freight must be prepaid. American Permalight® Inc. will promptly issue credit or replace merchandise which is received in its original packaging, and in new and resalable condition.

8. Material supplied by us remains the property of American Permalight® Inc. until full payment of all current and past due invoices is made. Should creditors sell Permalight® material to their customers, the resulting claims become ours if our creditors are unable to pay their outstanding dues to us. Our creditors will then be asked to assist us in obtaining the money from the third-party creditor.
9. Work instructions, installation instructions, safety data sheets, recommendations as well as suggestions from American Permalight® Inc. are provided for our buyers’ consideration, investigation and verification. They do not release our customers from the responsibility to determine whether a particular product is suitable for their anticipated use. Before starting a full production run, always test the material for its intended use. Following ongoing research and development, material may be subject to technical changes. We will not be liable for any loss, damage, expense or consequential damages of any kind connected with the use of our materials.
