By purchasing Products and/or services and/or using BULQ.com, you agree to accept these terms and conditions, as well as the BULQ.com Terms of Service, and Privacy Notice located on the BULQ.com website (collectively, the "Terms of Purchase"). The Terms of Purchase will become effective on your first access of the bulq.com website or commencement of communication with any BULQ employee or representative (the "Effective Date").
- These Terms of Purchase apply to all sales of Products from us to you, and supersede all other terms and conditions, including any standard or pre-printed terms, provided to us by you, including any terms provided on any purchase order. We expressly reject any such terms. Non-negotiated terms such as these will have no effect, and BULQ’s acceptance of a given purchase order, if applicable, shall not obligate BULQ to accept any such non-negotiated terms or conditions.
- "Products" means any item or service available for purchase.
- "Lot" shall mean a collection of any pre-grouped Products, including but not limited to a pallet or case.
- "Lot Detail Page" shall mean any webpage on BULQ.com with details about a Lot for sale, including but not limited to description and price.
- Except as otherwise provided by BULQ, Buyer shall only be eligible to purchase after creation of a user account on BULQ.com and/or, if applicable, submission of a Buyer Application and Resale Certificate to BULQ.
- Buyer represents and warrants that it is authorized and legally able to purchase, use, and/or disposition goods in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.
- Products are offered for sale in various conditions. We generally use reasonable efforts to classify Products based on appearance, functionality, information provided by our suppliers, and other factors. However, such classifications are not necessarily accurate. The condition descriptions are listed on bulq.com. The anticipated condition of Products in each Lot will be noted on the Lot Detail Page.
- In consideration for your agreement to these Terms of Purchase, payment of the sale price of your order, shipping charges, plus applicable taxes, and any other applicable fees, BULQ hereby agrees to sell you Products pursuant to these Terms of Purchase. Nothing in these Terms of Purchase obligates BULQ to sell Products to you.
- We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to cancel any purchase for any reason. Reasons for why your purchase may be canceled include but are not limited to: inaccuracies in Lot listings, prior sales, failure to provide requested tax exemption certificates if applicable, or issues identified by BULQ’s fraud, risk management and compliance team. In the event that a purchase is cancelled, you will be notified by email, and the purchase price will be refunded. You may not cancel any purchase once BULQ has received your funds.
- BULQ may require additional and/or alternate payment terms and conditions in its sole and absolute discretion.
- BULQ purchasers must provide their Reseller Certificate (or legally-equivalent license or resale document in your state) via email to firstname.lastname@example.org unless you live in a state which exempts you from paying sales tax (Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, or Oregon).
- BULQ does not collect sales tax for sales to purchasers in states and/or for transactions where we are not required to collect sales tax. If you are purchasing from BULQ for your personal use and not for resale, you may be required to file a tax form and pay a sales or use tax to your state. For more state-by-state information see here. In the event any taxes are assessed based upon the sale of Products and/or services, or any purchases you make from BULQ, other than corporate franchise taxes, property, and taxes based on BULQ’s income, this amount shall be added to your payment price. You agree to pay any such taxes promptly upon receipt of notice by BULQ.
- Title to Products will remain with BULQ until we tender the Products to a common carrier. You expressly acknowledge that the risk of loss and liability for the Products shall pass to you upon product shipment, or in the event that you agree to receive Products at a designated BULQ location, such location. You acknowledge and agree that you shall have no right to refuse or return the Products after BULQ has accepted your payment. If you fail to accept the delivery of such Products and/or they are returned to us, BULQ may re-initiate a new shipment at your sole risk and expense, and/or bill you for any and all shipping and transportation costs, common carrier fees and surcharges, and restocking fees. In such cases you agree to pay all applicable fees and expenses. No refunds will be issued for orders refused at delivery or for failure to schedule delivery with a common carrier. In addition, BULQ reserves the right to charge a fee for rescheduling dock time to pick up Products.
- Buyer arranged shipments must be scheduled within 3 days of payment and shipments must be completed within 6 days of payment or BULQ will consider the Products to have been abandoned by the Buyer and thereafter Buyer foregoes any and all rights to such Products. In addition to any other rights and remedies available to BULQ, Buyer shall forfeit, at BULQ’s sole discretion, a cancellation fee up to 100% of the amount paid to BULQ, if any, for the Products and is responsible for any damages suffered by BULQ due to Buyer’s failure to perform. As BULQ retains all ownership rights in the Products in such circumstances, BULQ has the right to sell such Products or otherwise dispose of the Products in any manner BULQ deems appropriate, all without any liability to you.
