By your indication of acceptance or by your acceptance of the delivery of Synaptics' products and/or services, you agree to be bound by and accept these terms and conditions exclusively and in lieu of the terms and conditions in your purchase order or any other document offered or proposed by you. These terms and conditions may be changed by Synaptics without prior notice to you, at any time, at Synaptics' sole discretion; provided that such changes shall only apply to orders received from you after the effective date of the change. Synaptics has the right to modify or discontinue products and services offered at any time. All requests for products or services are subject to approval by Synaptics, and Synaptics reserves the right to restrict or allocate product. If you and Synaptics are parties to a separate agreement signed by you and Synaptics with terms and conditions inconsistent with these, the terms and conditions of that signed agreement, while it is in effect, shall control.
1. The Warranty and Limitation of Liability
Synaptics' products are sold with the following warranty, except that software is provided AS IS and services are provided in a workmanlike manner. Synaptics warrants, to its original customer only, that its products will meet Synaptics' specifications under normal storage and use conditions for a period of one year from the date of shipment. This warranty is made only to Synaptics' Customer, and does not extend to anyone to whom the product is sold or the services provided after it is purchased from Synaptics. If Synaptics' products or services do not conform to the warranty, then Synaptics will, at its option, either repair the product, provide its Customer with a new product that meets specifications, re-perform the services or refund the purchase price of the product or services. These are the exclusive remedies for breach of warranty. These exclusive remedies shall not be deemed to fail of their essential purpose as long as Synaptics is willing to replace the defective product, re-perform the services or refund the purchase price. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Synaptics shall not be liable for any defects that are caused by neglect, misuse or mistreatment by an entity other than Synaptics, including improper installation or testing, or for any products that have been altered or modified in any way by an entity other than Synaptics. Synaptics shall not be liable for any defects that result from Customer's design, specifications or instructions. Customer agrees that prior to using or distributing any products that include Synaptics' products, Customer will thoroughly test such systems and the functionality of such Synaptics' products as used in such systems. Synaptics' products are not authorized for use in safety-critical applications (such as life support) where a failure of the Synaptics' product could reasonably be expected to cause severe personal injury or death. Customer shall fully indemnify Synaptics against any damages arising out of the unauthorized use of Synaptics' products in such safety-critical applications. Customer represents that it has all necessary expertise in the safety and regulatory ramifications of its applications, and Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is solely responsible for compliance with all legal, regulatory and safety-related requirements concerning its products and any use of Synaptics' products. The prices charged for Synaptics' products and services are based upon the exclusive limited warranty stated above and the following.
(A) NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY, SYNAPTICS MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH ITS PRODUCTS OR SERVICES; (B) SYNAPTICS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; (C) SYNAPTICS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS LIABILITY TO ITS CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF ANY AGREEMENT WITH CUSTOMER OR THE SALE, PERFORMANCE, DELIVERY OR FAILURE TO DELIVER THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT OR OTHERWISE AND (D) SYNAPTICS' LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF ITS AGREEMENT WITH CUSTOMER OR SUPPLYING, OR FAILING TO SUPPLY, THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE PRICE PAID BY CUSTOMER FOR THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY.
2. Claims Procedure
Any claim for shortages must be made by Customer within 10 days after the date of delivery to the Customer. All other claims must be submitted within 60 days after the date of delivery, or in the case of breach of warranty, within 60 days after the date within the warranty period on which the defect is or should have been discovered. Failure to provide that notice prevents Synaptics from making a prompt investigation, and unfairly hampers Synaptics in its assessment of the circumstances. Therefore, Customer acknowledges that the failure to provide a timely notice will bar any claim. Any action for breach of any of Synaptics' obligations must be commenced within 12 months from the date of the tender of delivery by Synaptics, or, in the case of a claim based upon breach of warranty, within 12 months from the date within the warranty period on which the defect is or should have been discovered by Customer, whichever is earlier. If a Customer discovers a problem with a Synaptics' product while it is being incorporated into another product, Customer should stop the use of such product and notify Synaptics immediately. Customers who fail to stop and notify Synaptics or resume incorporation against Synaptics' advice do so at their own risk.
Synaptics will not accept any products for return without Synaptics' prior written consent.
Customer shall pay the prices set by Synaptics. Price quotes are firm for a period not to exceed ten (10) days unless otherwise indicated by Synaptics. Payment for the Synaptics' products and services is due as provided in the invoices. Failure to pay within that time will result in a carrying charge at a rate of 1.5% per month. In any action to recover the price, the prevailing party shall be entitled to be reimbursed for its costs, including its reasonable attorneys' fees. Customer shall pay all applicable taxes, transportation charges, insurance premiums, and custom packaging charges. Synaptics may delay or cancel delivery of products and services if Synaptics doubts Customer's ability to pay.
5. Delivery, Freight, Risk of Loss
Scheduled, requested, required or other delivery dates designated on Customer or Synaptics' documents are only good faith estimates and Synaptics shall not be liable for any failure to deliver by such dates. Prices are and delivery is made F.O.B. shipping point. Title to products, other than products that are licensed rather than sold, and risk of loss will pass upon delivery to the carrier. Synaptics may deliver products in installments.
6. Customer's Right to Cancel and Cancellation Fee
In the event Customer cancels all or any part of a purchase order to Synaptics, Customer shall pay to Synaptics within thirty days of such cancellation, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, the total of (a) the price of any products manufactured to fulfill the purchase order before the date Synaptics' received the notice of cancellation ("Cancellation Date") plus (b) 50% of the price of any products scheduled by Synaptics to be delivered to fulfill the purchase order within 10 business days after the Cancellation Date that Synaptics has not manufactured on the Cancellation Date plus (c) 30% of the price of any products scheduled by Synaptics to be delivered to fulfill the purchase order more than 10 business days after the Cancellation Date that Synaptics has not manufactured on the Cancellation Date. Customer may change a delivery date fixed in an order to a new delivery date within thirty days after the original delivery date one time by delivering to Synaptics written notice of the new delivery date more than fourteen days before the original delivery date. Customer may change a delivery date fixed in an order to a new delivery date that is more than thirty but less than sixty-one days after the original delivery date by delivering to Synaptics written notice of the new delivery date more than thirty days before the original delivery date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a new delivery date may not be scheduled after the 22nd of any month that is the final month of calendar quarter during which the original delivery date was scheduled.
7. Synaptics' Specifications, Technical Data
Synaptics retains title to any specifications, drawings, plans, notes, instructions, engineering notices, or technical data furnished to its Customer and Synaptics' intellectual property embodied therein, regardless of whether Customer incurred an additional charge for such information. Such information and other confidential or proprietary information of Synaptics, which is not generally known to the public, ( "Confidential Information") shall not be used by Customer except with the written consent of Synaptics and shall not be disclosed by Customer. Upon Synaptics' request, Confidential Information shall be promptly returned to Synaptics. Customer agrees that it shall not reverse compile, disassemble or otherwise reverse engineer Synaptics' products. Customer understands and agrees that all information provided by Customer shall be non-confidential. Nothing in this transaction or in these terms and conditions conveys any license, expressly or by implication or estoppel, under any patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets or other intellectual property rights to Customer unless the parties enter into a separate written license agreement which states the terms of such license.
Any order for Synaptics' products, which are to be exported, is subject to Synaptics' ability to obtain export licenses and other necessary papers within a reasonable period. Customer must furnish all Consular and Customs declarations and will accept and bear responsibility for penalties resulting from errors or omissions thereon. Customers must not re-export Synaptics' products or goods or items which incorporate them if the re-export would violate United States or other applicable export laws.
Synaptics is not liable for any default or delay in performance if caused, directly or indirectly, by acts of God, force of arms, fire, the elements, riots, labor disputes, picketing or other labor controversies, sabotage, civil commotion, accidents, any governmental action, prohibition or regulation, delay in transportation facilities, shortage or breakdown of or inability to obtain or non-arrival of any labor, material or equipment used in the manufacture of the products or the provision of the services, failure of any party to perform any contract with Synaptics relative to the production of the products or providing the services or any cause whatsoever beyond Synaptics' control, whether or not such cause be similar or dissimilar to those enumerated.
10. Law and Jurisdiction
California state law governs the interpretation of this agreement and applies to claims for breach of it, regardless of conflict of laws principles. The State and Federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California shall have sole jurisdiction over, and shall be the sole forum for resolving, any disputes arising involving Synaptics, and any claimant against Synaptics hereby submits to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
11. Entire Agreement
These terms and conditions and the terms of Synaptics' order acknowledgment, if any, embody the entire agreement related to the sale of Synaptics' products and services and supersede any and all prior oral or written agreements with respect to such products and services except for any written agreement signed by Customer and Synaptics which are in effect at the time that the products are delivered or the services provided and which apply to such transaction. The willingness of Synaptics to sell its products or provide its services is expressly made conditional on the Customer's assent to these terms. Any amendment or modification of these terms initiated by Customer must be in writing and signed by Synaptics or posted by Synaptics on its web site.

If prior to delivery of the Items, Purchaser is able to purchase a portion or all of the Items, or similar items of like quality, at a price that is less than the Price, Purchaser shall notify Seller.

4. DRAWINGS AND SPECIFICATIONS Any specifications, drawings, notes, instructions, engineering information, or technical data furnished by either Purchaser or Seller to the other, or referred to in the Contract, shall be incorporated herein by reference.

In any event, Seller shall be responsible for all expenses and damages that Purchaser incurs because of the breach of warranty. The foregoing warranties and obligations shall also apply to the Items supplied by Seller in such repair, replacement or re-performance.

Seller shall promptly take, at its expense, all action necessary to make all Items comply with the applicable laws, codes, ordinances, regulations, rules, standards, requirements or orders after Seller receives a notice that some violation exists with respect to the Items. If Seller fails to promptly take such action, Purchaser may take all such action at Seller's expense. Seller shall also be liable for the payment of any penalties and/or fines imposed as a result of the failure of any Item provided by or for Seller hereunder to comply with all of the above requirements.
12. LIENS Seller hereby waives its rights to any mechanics lien or other lien under any applicable statutes or otherwise for all Items furnished in connection with the Contract. Prior to Seller's receipt of each payment under the Contract, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser all affidavits, lien releases, materialmen's certificates and other documents necessary fully to protect Purchaser under the applicable lien laws. If at any time there shall be evidence of the existence of any such lien or claim for work done or materials, services or equipment furnished by Seller or any other party in connection with the Contract, the Purchaser may use money then due or to become due under the Contract to discharge such lien or satisfy such claim and may credit such amounts against the amounts due or to become due to the Seller.
13. INDEMNITY Seller shall indemnify and hold Purchaser, its agents and employees harmless from and against all expenses, costs, charges, damages, claims, suits, losses, fines, penalties or liabilities (including attorneys fees) of every kind whatsoever arising out of, or in any way connected with the Items, excluding only such that are caused by the sole negligence of Purchaser, but not excluding situations where the Purchaser's negligence consists of failure to discover a condition caused or permitted to exist by the Seller or any of its suppliers or subcontractors. This indemnification shall be in addition to the warranty obligations of the Seller. Seller, in any indemnification claim hereunder, hereby expressly and without reservation waives any defense or immunity it may have under any applicable Workers Compensation laws or any other statute or judicial decision, disallowing or limiting such indemnification where an employee of Seller makes a claim against any indemnitee herein, and Seller consents to a cause of action for indemnity.

INSURANCE Seller shall take out and maintain with a carrier or carriers having a Best rating of not less than B+ at least the following minimum insurance at its expense for the duration of the Contract (including all warranty periods thereunder) covering all of Seller's obligations under the Contract: (a) Commercial General Liability (Bodily Injury, including premises, contractual, products liability or completed operations coverage) $2,000,000 in the aggregate; $2,000,000 each occurrence in the aggregate with a single excess umbrella coverage of not less than $5,000,000 for combined bodily injury and property damage; and (b) Commercial General Liability (Property Damage, including premises, contractual, products liability or completed operations coverage with the explosion, collapse and underground damage exclusions deleted.) $2,000,000 each occurrence; $2,000,000 in the aggregate. The completed operations coverage or the products liability coverage described above under the commercial general liability insurance shall be kept in effect for the longer of two years from the date of Purchaser's initial commercial use of the Items or the period stated in the first sentence of this Section. None of the above insurance coverage shall be cancelable except upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to the Purchaser. Seller shall include Purchaser as an additional insured on all liability insurance. Seller also waives, for itself and its insurers, all rights of recovery against Purchaser and its employees which Seller or its insurers may have for any loss related to the Items that is insured against herein. On Purchaser's request, Seller shall provide certificates of insurance and renewals evidencing such insurance coverage.
15. TERMINATION, SUSPENSION OR DELAY Purchaser shall have the right at any time to terminate, suspend, or delay the Contract in whole or in part by prior written notice to Seller. The Seller shall, if directed by the Purchaser and to the extent stated in the notice of termination, suspension or delay, make all efforts necessary to preserve the work in progress and to protect the Items whether still at Seller's manufacturing facilities or in transit to Purchaser's facilities. In the case of termination of the Contract, Seller shall transfer to Purchaser, in accordance with Purchaser's directions, and whether located on the job site, in a vendor's or manufacturer's facility or elsewhere, all materials and all information accumulated, specifically prepared or acquired by Seller for use in relation to the design, development, manufacture, assembly, shipment, installation, operation, maintenance or repair of the Items and all work in process and all working drawings, sketches, specifications, and other information accumulated, prepared or acquired by Seller with respect to such Items. If Seller is not then in default in the performance of any of its obligations hereunder, and if Seller has taken reasonable steps to mitigate its damages resulting from such termination, Purchaser shall pay to Seller, as Seller's sole and exclusive remedy for termination under this Section, to the extent not already paid to Seller, an amount equal to reasonable and documented costs incurred by Seller in the production of the work in process prior to Sellers' receipt of notice of termination, provided, however, that such costs plus prior payments to Seller shall in no event exceed the Price. Before Purchaser resumes performance under the Contract following a suspension or delay, Seller and Purchaser shall negotiate in good faith on the adjustments, if any, which may be required in payments to Seller or in the Price to avoid inequities either to Seller or Purchaser.
16. DEFAULT If the Seller: (a) becomes insolvent; (b) has a petition under any chapter of the bankruptcy laws filed by or against it; (c) makes a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors; (d) has a receiver requested for or appointed for it; (e) fails to use properly skilled personnel in its performance under the Contract; (f) should fail to make prompt payment to any subcontractors it may have or for any material, labor, transportation, supplies, fuel, use of equipment or any other expense it incurs under the Contract; or (g) fails to comply with any of its obligations under the Contract then Purchaser may, in addition to its rights under Section 7 above, at its option either cure the default at Seller's expense or terminate the Contract. Immediately after such termination, Purchaser may: (i) take possession of the Items wherever they may be located and in whatever state of completion they may be together with all drawings and other information necessary to enable Purchaser to have the Items completed, installed, operated, maintained and/or repaired; (ii) pay to Seller any amount then due under the Contract after taking full credit for any offsets to which Purchaser may be entitled; (iii) contract with or employ any other party or parties to finish the Items; and (iv) collect from the Seller any additional expense, losses or damage which Purchaser may suffer.
17. PURCHASER'S RIGHTS AND REMEDIES Any rights or remedies granted to Purchaser in any part of the Contract shall not be exclusive of, but shall be in addition to, any other rights or remedies granted in any other part of the Contract and to any other rights or remedies that Purchaser may have at law or in equity.
18. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR Seller is acting as an independent contractor, and the manner and means of conducting the work and all individuals who will be performing the work which is a part of the Items will be under Seller's sole control subject to compliance with all of the terms of the Contract and to the continuing right of inspection by Purchaser's representatives. Seller shall be solely responsible to Purchaser for the acts and omissions of all such individuals. Under no circumstances shall any of such individuals be or be deemed to be employees of Purchaser. Seller shall pay, and shall assure that its suppliers and/or all other parties under its control or supervision who will have any personnel performing services at Purchaser's site pay, as required by applicable laws, all payroll taxes, contributions and payments for unemployment insurance, Worker's Compensation insurance, Social Security contributions and other amounts required to be paid on behalf of employees and Seller shall hold the Purchaser harmless from any such assessments.

20. ASSIGNMENT Seller may not assign the Contract or any right thereunder without the prior written consent of Purchaser.
21. WAIVER The failure of either party hereto to require strict compliance with or complete performance of any obligation of the other party hereto by such other party shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach by such other party.
22. ENTIRE AGREEMENT The Contract sets forth the entire agreement between Seller and Purchaser on the subjects covered herein, and, except as otherwise provided above in Section 7, no terms, conditions, understanding or agreement purporting to modify or vary the terms of the Contract shall be binding unless made in writing and signed by Seller and Purchaser.

No course of prior dealings between the parties or any trade usage shall be relevant to supplement or explain any term used herein.
23. SEVERABILITY In the event that any words, phrase, clause, sentence or other provision of the Contract shall violate any applicable statute, ordinance or rule of law in any jurisdiction in which it is used, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such violation without invalidating any other provision of the Contract.
24. GOVERNING LAW The Contract and all the performance thereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California. The parties exclude the application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
