PURCHASE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
You agree that your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms, all Products listed in your order.
All orders must be accepted by Masport or we will not be obligated to sell such Products to you.
Masport may choose not to accept orders at our sole discretion, even after we send you an Order Confirmation or other confirmation email, receipt, or statement with your order number and details of the Products you have ordered.
As consideration for the purchased Products and the limited warranty set forth herein, Customer agrees to pay Masport the purchase price set forth on the Order Confirmation together with all applicable sales taxes, use taxes, excise taxes, export duties and tariffs (collectively, the “Taxes”), and all freight, handling, or shipping charges (“Freight”). In the event that fabrication of the purchased Products has not commenced within ninety (90) days following the date on the Order Confirmation, for whatever reason, the price for the Products will be subject to re-pricing to reflect any increase in labor, materials, and/or other costs between such date and the date on which fabrication is completed. Customer agrees and acknowledges that all prices, discounts, and promotions posted on the Site are subject to change without prior notice to Customer. The price charged for any ordered Products will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and will be set out in your Order Confirmation. Except as otherwise provided herein, price modifications shall not apply to orders placed prior to such changes. Unless expressly stated otherwise, prices for all Products are in the form of US Dollars. Posted prices do not include Taxes or charges for Freight. All such Taxes and charges will be added to your order total, and will be itemized in your shopping cart and in your Order Confirmation. To the extent permissible under law, you are responsible for any applicable Taxes, whether or not they are listed on your Order Confirmation.
Masport strives to display accurate price information, however we may, on occasion, make inadvertent typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions related to pricing and availability. Masport reserves the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time and to cancel any orders arising from such occurrences. Masport’s minimum sale is $25.00 per order.
Masport may offer from time to time promotions on the Site that may affect pricing and that are subject to terms and conditions in addition to these Terms. If there is a conflict between the terms for a promotion and these Terms, the promotion terms will govern.
General Payment Terms:
Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless an Approved Credit Account has been established (as approved by us in our sole discretion). For online purchases from the Site, payment must be received by us prior to our acceptance of an order. We accept credit card or PayPal for all such purchases. You represent and warrant that (a) the payment information you supply to us is true, correct, and complete, (b) you are duly authorized to use such payment information for the purchase, (c) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company or bank, and (d) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including Freight charges and all applicable Taxes, if any, regardless of the amount quoted on the Site at the time of your order. We may store and continue billing your payment method (e.g., credit card) even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in your Products and to use to pay other Products you may buy. Masport shall have the absolute right to offset any amounts due to Masport from Customer against any amounts due to Customer from Masport.
Approved Credit Account:
Customers having an Approved Credit Account (A) shall make payment in full within 30 days from the date of the applicable invoice and (B) may be eligible for a 2% discount on the posted purchase price only (and not on Freight, Taxes, or other charges) if payment is received by Masport within 10 days of the date of the applicable invoice. In the event any amounts that are payable to Masport hereunder are not paid when due, Customer shall, in addition, pay Masport interest on the portion thereof which may from time to time remain unpaid at the rate of one and one-third percent (1.33%) per month, or if lower, the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, from the date on which such payment is due until the same is paid in full. Accounts with past-due amounts over 60 days will be placed on “Credit Hold” status and no purchases will be shipped to Customer. Should a credit card be used to pay any past due amounts or any new purchases while on Credit Hold a 4% fee on the total amount due will be charged. After payment is received for all overdue amounts, the account may be put back on open account terms in Masport sole discretion.
Purchase Money Security Interest:
Customer hereby grants to Masport a purchase money security interest in and first lien upon any and all Products delivered to Customer by Masport hereunder as security for the payment when due of any and all sums payable to Masport by Customer hereunder and hereby consents to Masport’s filing of one or more UCC financing statements with respect to such collateral. Further, Customer agrees to take all such further action and to execute, deliver, and file or deliver all such further instruments or documents as Masport may reasonably request in order to perfect and preserve its first lien and security interest in the collateral.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing by an authorized representative of Masport, Masport will arrange to have the Products delivered to Customer at the “Ship to Address” set forth on the Order Confirmation by common carrier and the Freight associated with the delivery will be added to the purchase price. In all events, the following shall apply:
- All Freight and other delivery-related costs and expenses shall be the responsibility of the Customer;
- All shipments will be made F.O.B. shipping point, with title and risk of loss passing to the Customer upon the Products being delivered to the common carrier at Masport’s manufacturing facility;
- In no event shall Masport assume any responsibility or be liable to Customer or Customer’s customer for any loss, damage, cost, or expense caused by any delay or damage in shipment or delivery;
- Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed;
- All claims for damage occurring during shipment shall be directed to the common carrier and are not the responsibility of Masport; and
- Delivery by Masport to the common carrier shall constitute delivery to the Customer.
Inspection and Claims:
Promptly upon receipt of the Products, Customer shall inspect the Products for damages, shortages, or discrepancies. All claims for damage incurred during shipping and delivery shall be governed by the terms set forth in the Product Delivery section above.

Customer may cancel an order by providing written notice of cancellation to Masport prior to shipment of the Products. However, special order items may not be cancelled except as authorized in writing by an authorized representative of Masport. In the event Customer cancels an order, Customer nevertheless agrees to pay Masport for all costs and expenses incurred by Masport in connection with such order through the close of business on the day on which Masport receives the cancellation notice. All such costs and expenses shall be due and payable to Masport on demand and/or will be subject to Masport’s absolute right of offset.
