The purchase price does not include any sales, use, revenue, excise or other taxes or governmental charges. If CSI is required to collect those taxes or charges, CSI will add them to the purchase price and invoice Buyer (in the original invoice or separately), and Buyer will pay them.
  2. Delivery. All prices are net of any delivery charges, all of which Buyer shall pay. Delivery shall occur and title and all risk of loss shall pass to Buyer when the Standard leaves CSI’s facility. CSI shall not be responsible for any damage to the Standard caused by a carrier, and Buyer’s sole recourse for that damage shall be against the carrier. All delivery schedules and dates given by CSI are estimates only.

CSI SHALL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST REVENUES AND PROFITS, EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES. In no event shall CSI be liable for any amount arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Standard/Trend Card, whether in contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, in excess of the purchase price of the Standard or Trend Card at issue.
