Security Interest. Purchaser grants to Bishop a purchase money security interest in all products, merchandise, supplies, equipment and goods purchased from Bishop, and all additions, replacements and substitutions therefore and the proceeds and products of the foregoing (the “Collateral”) to secure payment of all indebtedness of Purchaser to Bishop, including the purchase price. Purchaser authorizes Bishop to file Uniform Commercial Code financing statements evidencing the security interest. Until the full amount owed to Bishop is paid, the Collateral shall remain at Purchaser’s business location identified on the front of this contract (the “Premises”), shall be insured against all losses in an amount not less than the purchase price (with Bishop as a lender loss payee and reasonable proof thereof provided to Bishop) and shall pay all taxes and other charges thereon promptly when due.

Purchaser shall provide Bishop with such additional information and assistance as may be requested by Bishop in order to perfect the security interest granted by Purchaser herein.

The parties further agree: Waiver of or acquiescence in any default by the purchaser or failure of the seller to insist upon strict performance by the purchaser of any warranties or agreements in this security agreement, shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent or other default or failure. Notices to either party shall be in writing to the party at the address as stated herein.

Purchaser’s default in making any payment shall, at the option of the seller and without notice or demand, render the unpaid balance of the principal hereof and accrued interest thereon immediately due and payable. Extension of time of payment of all or any part of the amount owing, or any variation, modification, or waiver of any terms or conditions at any time or times shall not affect the liability of any party hereto or co-maker, guarantor, or surety hereof, it being the intent of all parties that they shall continue jointly or severally absolutely liable for the payment of the aforesaid indebtedness until the same is actually paid in full.

The following shall constitute a default by the purchaser:

  1. Failure to pay any invoice within the terms stated thereon.

  5. Subjection of the collateral to levy of execution or other judicial process.

The purchaser shall remain liable for any deficiency resulting from a sale of the collateral and shall pay any such deficiency forthwith on demand. The seller is hereby authorized to file a financing statement with respect to the terms and conditions as set forth herein.

Upon any default by the purchaser and at the option of the seller, it is hereby agreed that the seller may enter upon premises in which the purchaser is operating its place of business and take possession of the aforedescribed collateral and/or render it unusable or remove it.

The seller shall not be liable for prospective profits or special, indirect or subsequential damages. Nor shall any recovery of any kind against the seller party be greater in amount than the purchase price of the specific goods sold and causing the alleged loss, damage or injury. Purchaser assumes all risks and liability for loss, damage or injury to persons or property of the purchaser or others arising out of the use or possession of any goods sold by the seller to the purchaser.

It is hereby agreed that in the event legal proceedings are instituted with reference to any dispute which in any way relates hereto, such shall be governed and enforced by the laws of the State of Michigan and the parties do hereby specifically agree that venue will lie exclusively in Kent County, Michigan, at seller’s sole option. In the event seller brings legal action to enforce any of its legal rights as contained in this agreement, purchaser does hereby specifically agree not to file any counterclaim against seller for any alleged damages incurred by purchaser and does hereby enter into a covenant not to due seller for any damages, or losses whatsoever which in any way relate to any purchases made by the purchaser from seller.

That purchaser does hereby designate as its authorized agent and representative any and all persons accepting deliveries of merchandise, supplies, equipment, and goods of any nature whatsoever forwarded by the seller or any other entity on behalf of the seller to the purchaser’s place of business and that person(s) accepting said deliveries are hereby authorized to bind the purchaser to the terms and conditions as set forth in any and all documents signed by said person(s), and to accept deliveries on purchaser’s behalf.

That interest shall be charged on all unpaid balances thirty (30) days post-invoice date at the maximum legal rate of interest.

No statements, representations, or agreements of any kind are binding upon or chargeable to the seller unless evidenced in writing. Any and all prior statements, representations, and agreements which are not evidenced in writing are excluded and superseded thereby. Prices are subject to change without notice to conform to those in affect at the time of shipment. Prices quoted are for the specified quantities only.

The purchaser shall have ten (10) days after the receipt of any merchandise, supplies, equipment, and goods of any nature whatsoever ordered for a purchase, to give written notice to the seller at the seller’s address, stating the nature and the particular defects, in any, existing. The retention of the foregoing for any time in excess of ten (10) days without giving such notice shall constitute acceptance thereof and acknowledgement that said goods are satisfactory in quantity and quality.

Unless otherwise specified, any and all notice by purchaser to seller concerning purchaser’s rejection of goods, damages sustained to goods, and any and all notice to be given the seller by purchaser in accordance with the terms of this agreement and Michigan Law shall be in writing.
