TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE
1. Applicability; Offer; Acceptance. These terms and conditions of purchase (“Terms”) of goods and/or services (“Goods”) and the corresponding purchase order, including any continuation sheet(s) (collectively, the “Purchase Order”), issued to the seller named on such Purchase Order (“Seller”) comprise the entire agreement between the Seller and the Circa Hospitality Group entity identified on the Order, i.e. Circa Hospitality Group I LLC (d/b/a Golden Gate Hotel & Casino), Circa Hospitality Group II LLC (d/b/a the D Las Vegas), or Circa Hospitality Group III LLC (d/b/a Circa Resort & Casino) (the “Buyer”). The Terms and Order are sometimes collectively referred to as this “Agreement.” This Agreement supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. This Agreement expressly limits Seller’s acceptance to the terms of this Agreement. Fulfillment of the Purchase Order constitutes acceptance of these Terms. The Purchase Order does not constitute an acceptance of any offer or proposal made by Seller. Any reference in the Purchase Order to any offer or proposal made by Seller is solely to incorporate the description or specifications of Goods in the prior offer or proposal, but only to the extent that the description or specifications do not conflict with the description and specifications in the Purchase Order. Seller’s written acceptance, Seller’s commencement of any work under the Purchase Order or any other conduct by Seller that recognizes the existence of a contract with respect to the subject matter of the Purchase Order constitutes Seller’s acceptance of the Terms. The Purchase Purchase Order is limited to and conditional upon Seller’s acceptance of these Terms exclusively. Any additional or different terms and conditions proposed by Seller, whether in Seller’s proposal form, acknowledgment form, invoice or otherwise, are unacceptable to Buyer, are expressly rejected by Buyer, shall not become part of this Agreement, but shall not operate as a rejection of the Purchase Order if Seller accepts Buyer’s offer by commencement of work, shipment of the Goods, or by other means acceptable to Buyer, in which case the Purchase Order shall be deemed accepted by Seller without any additional or different terms or variations whatsoever. THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT ARE EXCLUSIVE.
2. Delivery of Goods and Performance of Services. Seller shall deliver the Goods in the quantities and on the date(s) specified in the Purchase Order or as otherwise agreed in writing by the parties (“Delivery Date”). If Seller fails to deliver the Goods in full on the Delivery Date, Buyer may terminate this Agreement immediately by providing written notice to Seller and Seller shall indemnify Buyer against any losses, claims, damages, and reasonable costs and expenses directly attributable to Seller’s failure to deliver the Goods on the Delivery Date. Seller shall deliver all Goods to the address specified in the Purchase Order (“Delivery Point”) during Buyer’s normal business hours or as otherwise instructed by Buyer. Seller shall pack all goods for shipment according to Buyer’s instructions or, if there are no instructions, in a manner sufficient to ensure that the Goods are delivered in undamaged condition. Seller must provide Buyer prior written notice if it requires Buyer to return any packaging material. Any return of such packaging material shall be made at Seller’s risk of loss and expense. Seller shall provide the Services to Buyer as described and in accordance with the Purchase Order and these Terms. Seller acknowledges that time is of the essence with respect to Seller’s obligations hereunder and the timely delivery of the Goods and Services, including all performance dates, timetables, project milestones and other requirements in this Agreement. Delivery shall be made FOB Delivery Point. The Purchase Order number must appear on all shipping documents, shipping labels, bills of lading, air waybills, invoices, correspondence and any other documents pertaining to the Purchase Order. Title and risk of loss passes to Buyer upon delivery of the Goods at the Delivery Point.
3. Inspection and Rejection of Nonconforming Goods. Buyer has the right to inspect the Goods on or after the Delivery Date. Buyer, at its sole option, may inspect all or a sample of the Goods, and may reject all or any portion of the Goods if it determines the Goods are non-conforming or defective. If Buyer rejects any portion of the Goods, Buyer has the right, effective upon written notice to Seller, to: (a) rescind this Agreement in its entirety; (b) accept the Goods at a reasonably reduced price; or (c) reject the Goods and require replacement of the rejected Goods. If Buyer requires replacement of the Goods, Seller shall, at its expense, within five days replace the non-conforming or defective Goods and pay for all related expenses, including, but not limited to, transportation charges for the return of the defective goods and the delivery of replacement Goods. If Seller fails to timely deliver replacement Goods, Buyer may replace them with goods from a third party and charge Seller the cost thereof and terminate this Agreement for cause. Any inspection or other action by Buyer under this Section shall not reduce or otherwise affect Seller’s obligations under the Agreement, and Buyer shall have the right to conduct further inspections after Seller has carried out its remedial actions.
4. Price. The price of the Goods and Services is the price stated in the Purchase Order (“Price”). If no price is included in the Purchase Order, the Price shall be the price set out in Seller’s published price list in force as of the date of the Purchase Order. Unless otherwise specified in the Purchase Order, the Price includes all packaging, transportation costs to the Delivery Point, insurance, customs duties and fees and applicable taxes, including, but not limited to, all sales, use or excise taxes. No increase in the Price is effective, whether due to increased material, labor or transportation costs or otherwise, without Buyer’s prior written consent.
5. Payment Terms. Seller shall issue an invoice to Buyer on or any time after the completion of delivery and only in accordance with these Terms. Buyer shall pay all properly invoiced amounts due to Seller within sixty days after Buyer’s receipt of such invoice, except for any amounts disputed by Buyer in good faith. Without prejudice to any other right or remedy it may have, Buyer reserves the right to set off at any time any amount owing to it by Seller against any amount payable by Buyer to Seller. Seller shall continue performing its obligations under this Agreement notwithstanding any payment dispute.
6. Seller’s Obligations Regarding Services. Seller shall: (a) before the date on which the Services are to start, obtain, and at all times during the term of this Agreement, maintain, all necessary licenses and consents and comply with all relevant laws applicable to the provision of the Services; (b) comply with all rules, regulations and policies of Buyer, including security procedures concerning systems and data and remote access thereto, building security procedures and general health and safety practices and procedures; (c) maintain complete and accurate records relating to the provision of the Services under this Agreement, including records of the time spent and materials used by Seller in providing the Services in such form as Buyer shall approve.

Buyer’s approval shall not relieve Seller of its obligations under the Agreement, and Seller shall remain fully responsible for the performance of each such Permitted Subcontractor and its employees and for their compliance with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as if they were Seller’s own employees. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall create any contractual relationship between Buyer and any Seller subcontractor or supplier; (e) ensure that all persons, whether employees, agents, subcontractors, or anyone acting for or on behalf of the Seller, are properly licensed, certified or accredited as required by applicable law and are suitably skilled, experienced and qualified to perform the Services; (f) ensure that all of its equipment used in the provision of the Services is in good working order and suitable for the purposes for which it is used, and conforms to all relevant legal standards and standards specified by the Buyer; and (g) keep and maintain any Buyer equipment in its possession in good working order and shall not dispose of or use such equipment other than in accordance with the Buyer’s written instructions or authorization.
7. Change Orders. Buyer may at any time, by written instructions and/or drawings issued to Seller (each a “Change Order”), order changes to the Services. Seller shall within five days of receipt of a Change Order submit to Buyer a firm cost proposal for the Change Order. If Buyer accepts such cost proposal, Seller shall proceed with the changed services subject to the cost proposal and the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Seller acknowledges that a Change Order may or may not entitle Seller to an adjustment in the Seller’s compensation or the performance deadlines under this Agreement.
8. Warranties. Seller warrants to Buyer that all Goods will: (a) be free from any defects in workmanship, material and design; (b) conform to applicable specifications, drawings, designs, samples and other requirements specified by Buyer; (c) be fit for their intended purpose and operate as intended; (d) be merchantable; (e) be free and clear of all liens, security interests or other encumbrances; and (f) not infringe or misappropriate any third party’s patent or other intellectual property rights. These warranties survive any delivery, inspection, acceptance or payment of or for the Goods by Buyer. Seller warrants to Buyer that it shall perform the Services using personnel of required skill, experience and qualifications and in a professional and workmanlike manner in accordance with generally recognized industry standards for similar services and shall devote adequate resources to meet its obligations under this Agreement. The warranties set forth in this Section are cumulative and in addition to any other warranty provided by law or equity. Any applicable statute of limitations runs from the date of Buyer’s discovery of the non-compliance of the Goods or Services with the foregoing warranties. If Buyer gives Seller notice of noncompliance pursuant to this Section, Seller shall, at its own cost and expense, within five days, (i) replace or repair the defective or nonconforming Goods and pay for all related expenses, including, but not limited to, transportation charges for the return of the defective or nonconforming goods to Seller and the delivery of repaired or replacement Goods to Buyer, and, if applicable, (ii) repair or re-perform the applicable Services.

Seller shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Buyer and its related persons and entities (collectively, “Indemnitees”) against any and all loss, injury, death, damage, liability, claim, deficiency, action, judgment, interest, award, penalty, fine, cost or expense, including reasonable attorney and professional fees and costs, and the cost of enforcing any right to indemnification hereunder and the cost of pursuing any insurance providers (collectively, “Losses”) arising out of or occurring in connection with the Goods and Services purchased from Seller or Seller’s negligence, willful misconduct or breach of the Terms. Seller shall not enter into any settlement without Buyer’s prior written consent. Seller shall, at its expense, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Buyer and any Indemnitee against any and all Losses arising out of or in connection with any claim that Buyer’s or Indemnitee’s use or possession of the Goods or use of the Services infringes or misappropriates the patent, copyright, trade secret or other intellectual property right of any third party. In no event shall Seller enter into any settlement without Buyer’s or Indemnitee’s prior written consent.
10. Insurance. During the term of this Agreement and for a period of two years thereafter, Seller shall, at its own expense, maintain and carry insurance in full force and effect which includes, but is not limited to, commercial general liability (including product liability) in a sum no less than $1,000,000 per occurrence and $5,000,000 in the aggregate with financially sound and reputable insurers.

Seller shall maintain in effect all the licenses, permissions, authorizations, consents and permits that it needs to carry out its obligations under this Agreement. Seller shall comply with all export and import laws of all countries involved in the sale of the Goods under this Agreement or any resale of the Goods by Seller. Seller assumes all responsibility for shipments of Goods requiring any government import clearance. Buyer may terminate this Agreement if any governmental authority imposes antidumping or countervailing duties or any other penalties on Goods. Seller acknowledges that Buyer and its parent company, subsidiaries and affiliates are businesses that are or may be subject to and exist because of privileged licenses issued by governmental or tribal authorities. If requested to do so by Buyer, Seller shall obtain any license, qualification, clearance or the like which shall be requested or required of it by Buyer or any regulatory authority having jurisdiction over this Agreement or Buyer or its parent company, subsidiary or affiliates. If Seller fails to satisfy such requirement or if Buyer, its parent company, subsidiaries or affiliates is directed to cease business with Seller by any such authority, or if Buyer shall in good faith determine that Seller or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, designees or representatives, (a) is or might be engaged in, or is about to be engaged in, any activity or activities, or (b) was or is involved in any relationship, either of which could or does jeopardize Buyer’s business or such licenses, or those of Buyer’s parent company, subsidiaries or affiliates, or if any such license is threatened to be, or is, denied, curtailed, suspended or revoked, this Agreement may be terminated by Buyer without liability. Seller hereby affirms, represents and warrants to Buyer that it is not a denied license applicant, a revoked licensee or a business organization under the control of a denied license applicant or a revoked licensee, and Seller hereby agrees that this Agreement is subject to immediate termination by Buyer without liability if it should become a denied license applicant, a revoked licensee or a business organization under the control of a denied license applicant or a revoked licensee.

If the Seller becomes insolvent, files a petition for bankruptcy or commences or has commenced against it proceedings relating to bankruptcy, receivership, reorganization or assignment for the benefit of creditors, then the Buyer may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to Seller. If Buyer terminates the Agreement for any reason, Seller’s sole and exclusive remedy is payment for the Goods received and accepted and Services accepted by Buyer prior to the termination.
13. Waiver. No waiver by Buyer of any of the provisions of this Agreement is effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by Buyer. No failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power or privilege arising from this Agreement operates, or may be construed, as a waiver thereof.
