These Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Terms and Conditions”) shall be applicable to all agreements, purchase orders, quotations and sales of all POWER PLATE® Product and services (“Product”) from Performance Health Systems, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“PHS”) to you (sometimes referred to as, “Customer”). Any terms and/or conditions different than, or in addition to, these Terms and Conditions that may appear on any purchase order or other document furnished to PHS at any time by Customer shall have no force and effect. By making a purchase, placing an order or otherwise shopping on the website at www.powerplate.com (us)(the “Website”) or through PHS’s telephone sales team, or otherwise accepting delivery of the Product, Customer is deemed to have accepted and agreed to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Please read them carefully.
PHS’s acceptance of any order is subject to Customer’s assent to all of the terms and conditions set forth herein. Customer’s submission of an order shall constitute Customer’s full acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Customer’s assent to these Terms and Conditions shall otherwise be presumed from Customer’s receipt of PHS’s acknowledgment, or from Customer’s acceptance of all or any part of the Product ordered. No additions or modifications to these Terms and Conditions by Customer shall be binding upon PHS, unless agreed to in writing by an authorized representative of PHS. If a purchase order or other correspondence submitted by Customer contains terms or conditions contrary or in addition to the terms and conditions contained herein or in PHS’s acknowledgment, PHS’s fulfillment of any such purchase order shall not be construed as assent to any of the terms and conditions proposed by Customer, and will not constitute a waiver by PHS of any of the terms and conditions contained herein or in PHS’s acknowledgment.
NO OTHER TERMS APPLY. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, PHS ASKS THAT YOU DO NOT PURCHASE PHS’s PRODUCT.
- PHS is the manufacturer and an authorized distributor of Power Plate® Product in the United States. When Customer purchases a Power Plate® product from this Website, Customer is purchasing the product from PHS. The purchase of Product from PHS, whether via the Website or telephone sales team, is only intended for Customers that are residents of the United States.
Certain Defined Terms. In addition to terms defined elsewhere in these Terms and Conditions, the following terms have the following meanings:
- "Commercial Customer" means a Customer that is not a Consumer Customer.

All orders are subject to availability. PHS reserves the right not to accept an order if the Product in question is not in stock, if PHS is unable to authorize Customer’s payment or if Customer does not meet any other eligibility criteria set out in these Terms and Conditions. If PHS accepts Customer’s order, then PHS shall sell the Product to Customer in the quantities and at the price set forth at the time Customer places an order via this Website. Notwithstanding any order confirmation or other communications sent by PHS, Customer’s order shall not be deemed accepted by PHS until PHS’s shipment of the Product ordered.

All prices are subject to the addition of any applicable federal, state, or local sales and/or use taxes, which shall be paid by Customer; and Customer agrees to pay any such taxes, duties and tariffs that have not been collected by PHS and which PHS subsequently is required to pay to the taxing authority. Where applicable, taxes will be shown on and added to Customer’s invoice.
Shipping and Handling; Risk of Loss.

Repairs and spare parts for discontinued Product will be provided by PHS for one year after discontinuation or any such longer period as may be specified in any Product discontinuation notice. PHS may, at its option, offer upgrade packages or an opportunity to replace for a discontinued Product if spare parts are not available during any such period.

- Trademarks. The terms of this Section apply only to Commercial Customers. PHS authorizes and grants to Commercial Customer the non-exclusive, revocable right to use the brand names, trademarks and other indicia of manufacturing origin and quality of the PHS Product (collectively, the “Trademarks”), and if the Product is sold for commercial use, to advertise and promote the availability of PHS Product so long as Commercial Customer is using or selling the PHS Product in connection with Commercial Customer’s business.

PHS’s sole obligation under the Limited Warranty shall be, in PHS’s sole discretion, either to repair or replace Products or to refund the purchase price, during the limited warranty period when it has been determined by PHS that Product was defective as a result of manufacturing and not as a result of (i) improper use, storage or handling, (ii) the failure to maintain the Product with reasonable care, or (iii) abnormal conditions, including, without limitation, abuse, neglect, or catastrophe. PHS does not assume responsibility for delays in replacement of products subject to this Limited Warranty.

THE REMEDIES SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SHALL APPLY EVEN IF THE REMEDIES FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
Consumers. With respect to Consumer Customers, the following statements are made:

- Severability.

- Reformation. If, at any time of enforcement of any provisions contained in these Terms and Conditions, an arbitrator, court or any similar judicial body determines that any such provision is unreasonable or unenforceable, or both, under circumstances then existing, the parties authorize and instruct such arbitrator, court or other judicial body to revise such covenant, right or remedy to cover the maximum extent, scope, duration and geographic area permitted by applicable law. If such arbitrator, court or judicial body refuses to do so, the parties agree that such provisions shall not be rendered null and void, but rather shall be deemed amended to provide for the maximum restrictions (not greater than those contained herein) reasonable or enforceable, or both as the case may be, under applicable law.

- Attorneys’ Fees. If PHS takes legal action against Customer for non-payment, or any other breach of these Terms and Conditions, and a court makes an award in PHS’s favor, PHS shall be entitled to recover from Customer PHS’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in the action.

ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY BETWEEN THE PARTIES SHALL BE RESOLVED BY ARBITRATION, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT AN INJUNCTIVE ACTION IS REQUIRED BY EITHER PARTY TO PROTECT ITS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
