Shipping, Delivery and Return:

  IIS shall not be liable for delays in production or delivery due to causes beyond its control, including but not limited to acts of God, acts of Buyer, acts of civil or military authorities, priorities, fires, strikes, floods, epidemics, quarantines, war, delays in transportation and inability due to causes beyond IIS’s control to obtain necessary labor, materials or manufacturing facilities.  A shipping date given by IIS is an estimated date.  In no event shall IIS be liable to the Buyer for loss of use or profit or any other collateral, special or consequential damages resulting from delays in production or delivery, whether or not due to causes beyond IIS’s control.

  IIS will use its best judgment in packaging, packing, shipping and routing unless Buyer gives specific instructions with its order.  In the event of shortage or damage incurred enroute, Buyer must make its complaint to the delivering transportation agency and file a claim against such agency.  In the event of a shortage in packing, any claim against IIS must be made in writing within ten (10) days of receipt of the merchandise.  All shipments are made F.O.B. shipping point and inbound freight is responsibility of the BUYER, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by IIS. IIS’s responsibility for delivery ends with a signed bill of lading from the carrier. IIS may ship merchandise by LTL carrier in a prepaid manner and our only intent is so the “buyer” may be billed for that freight on their invoice from IIS at one time. Information contained within the bill of lading with reference to the weight is an estimated weight and to the best of our knowledge true and accurate. All risk of loss after IIS’s delivery to the carrier shall be borne by the Buyer.

 Authorization must be obtained from IIS prior to return of any goods for repair, replacement, or credit.  IIS shall have the right, prior to return, to inspect any goods claimed to be defective or nonconforming.  All returned shipments authorized by IIS shall be prepaid by Buyer. Unless IIS determines, upon inspection of returned goods, that the goods were defective or nonconforming, a restocking fee may apply and will be imposed on Buyer.  NO claims on fabric will be allowed, whether the goods are conforming or not, if the goods have been cut. Upon return and inspection of any merchandise returned found to be used or altered from its original purchased condition; at IIS’s discretion may deem it nonreturnable. If a pattern or color match is desired, a swatch of the pattern or color required must be submitted with the order.  In no event shall Buyer be entitled to nay right of set-off against IIS.
