22. The Customer agrees to comply with reasonable instructions as Lantronix Connectivity Services may require as a part of sale and use of its Products and Services from time to time to notify the

However, even without such instructions, the Customer expressly agrees that he/she/it will not breach any laws, standards or codes, including but not limited to SIM Boxing, or infringe a third party’s rights, or breach any content requirements or codes stipulated by any relevant authority. Furthermore, the Customer shall refrain, and prevent others, from using the Product for any purpose other than that intended by the relevant telecommunications operator, in any way whatsoever, including “annoyance’’,
“spamming’’ or any other form of harassment, creating, or having third parties create,
connections with buy lines (090x numbers) on a large scale or committing criminal offences or use the Product in a way which interferes with other users or harasses or restricts any other user from using or enjoying the Hosting MNO Network or the internet. Customer expressly agrees that he/she/it shall be liable for any damage, costs or usage (at standard overuse rates or rates charged by the network to Lantronix Connectivity Services – whichever is the higher), arising as a result of unlawful or fraudulent use of the Product, regardless as to whether the Customer was aware of such use or not.

It is understood and agreed by the Customer that money damages would not be a sufficient remedy for any breach of this clause and that the Lantronix Connectivity Services shall be entitled to specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief as a remedy for any such breach and the Customer further agrees to waive any requirement for the security or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy. Such remedy shall not be deemed to be the exclusive remedy for the breach of this clause but shall be in addition to all other remedies available at law or equity to the Lantronix Connectivity Services. The Customer will also ensure that its customers or users will abide with this clause.

2. PAYMENT. Prices for Products are quoted and payable in U.S. dollars. Payment for each purchase shall be made (i) in advance, (ii) COD, or (iii) by letter of credit satisfactory to Lantronix (in its sole and absolute discretion), until such time as Purchaser shall provide Lantronix with evidence of Purchaser's good credit rating that is satisfactory to Lantronix in its discretion (collectively (i) through (iii) are the “Original Payment Terms”). Thereafter, upon Lantronix’s written confirmation of the same, payment shall be made within thirty (30) days from the date of any shipment on each order (without regard to scheduled delivery of other orders). Invoices not fully paid within thirty (30) days of invoice date are subject to a service charge of one and one‑half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is less, (or any fraction thereof for partial months) on outstanding balances until fully paid. In the event that Purchaser fails to make timely payments of invoices, then in Lantronix’ sole and absolute discretion, the terms of payment shall revert, upon written notice to Purchaser, to being due for Products under the Original Payment Terms. Should Purchaser choose to wire transfer funds, Purchaser shall bear all costs of the same and may not net such costs against any amount owed to Lantronix. Checks will be accepted for payment, subject to collection of the funds, and the date of collection shall be deemed the date of payment for the purposes hereof. Purchaser shall be responsible for all costs incurred by Lantronix in order to recover payment of unpaid amounts, including (without limitation) all costs and legal fees. Payment received from Purchaser may be applied by Lantronix against any amount owing by Purchaser to Lantronix under the Terms or any other agreement or obligation, regardless of any statement or invoice referring to such payment; provided, that application of such payment by Lantronix to amounts due hereunder or under any other agreement or obligation of Purchaser shall not discharge Purchaser's liability for any additional outstanding amounts owed by Purchaser to Lantronix. Acceptance by Lantronix of any such payments shall not constitute a waiver of Lantronix' right to pursue the collection of any remaining balance owed to Lantronix under the Terms or any other agreement or obligation. Without limiting the foregoing, Purchaser agrees to pay the entire amount of each order without any offset or deduction therefor. The prices charged to Purchaser for any Product shall be the highest prevailing Lantronix rate for such Product, subject to Lantronix’ sole and absolute discretion and may be increased or decreased by Lantronix in its sole and absolute judgment (including, but not limited to, in the event of any increase in the cost to Lantronix of supplies, raw materials, labor, services, or any other increase whatsoever resulting from any governmental action or any other cause beyond Lantronix' control); provided, that such price increase(s) shall not apply to any Products that have been already delivered to Purchaser. Prices are exclusive of any taxes, fees, duties, VAT, withholding duties, other amounts due for sale, licensing or delivery of the Products, or other similar amounts (collectively, “Taxes”). Any and all Taxes shall be paid by Purchaser to Lantronix, and must be remitted to Lantronix along with the payment for the applicable Product order.
3. DELIVERY. Delivery will be F.O.B. Lantronix or its designated shipping facility. Purchaser shall pay any and all freight, shipping and any other affiliated charges or duties associated with delivery of Products. Payment for delivery and shipping costs will be due and must be remitted to Lantronix along with the payment for the applicable Product order. Purchaser assumes any and all risk of loss upon delivery of any Products by Lantronix to the common carrier. Insurance will not be provided by Lantronix on any Products while in transit unless instructions to the contrary are clearly marked on the face of Purchaser’s order and Lantronix has accepted the same in a signed writing. If insurance is provided, Purchaser will be charged at the time of purchase for all insurance at the rate Lantronix is charged by the carrier being used. If Purchaser requests insurance but does not select a carrier, Lantronix will select the carrier. Lantronix does not assume liability in connection with the shipment nor shall the carrier be construed to be the agent or representative of Lantronix. Lantronix will make commercially reasonable efforts to deliver, but makes no promises or guarantees whatsoever. If Purchaser specifies the carrier in writing to Lantronix, then Lantronix will ship the Products under such carrier, provided that costs and expenses of such carrier (including, but not limited to, insurance) will be charged to Purchaser. If Purchaser has requested to pick up Products, Lantronix shall have the right to ship any Products not picked up within three (3) business days of notification that the Products are available for pickup. Delivery of the first installment of any Products within thirty (30) calendar days after the date specified in any order accepted by Lantronix hereunder shall constitute timely delivery. Thereafter, delivery to Purchaser shall be deemed timely, unless prior to shipment by Lantronix, written notice(s) of cancellation is received from Purchaser. If there is a delay in delivery of an installment hereunder, such delay shall entitle Purchaser to cancel that installment only (subject to any terms to the contrary herein that would restrict even the cancellation of that installment) without any other liability thereof to Lantronix. Claims of late delivery are barred hereunder unless made prior to receipt of Products. The receipt of any Products shall automatically and irrevocably constitute a waiver of any claim that they were delivered late. Purchaser has a duty to immediately inspect any Products delivered to it and to give written notice to Lantronix of any defects found immediately after inspection by Purchaser. Products shall be deemed accepted by Purchaser upon receipt of shipment. Products will be packed and prepared for shipment in the sole and absolute discretion of Lantronix. Lantronix may ship partial shipments of any order at its sole and absolute discretion. Lantronix is under no obligation to provide notice of any expected delay for any shipment or delivery. Any Products may be shipped or delivered early at any time at the discretion of Lantronix without any liability thereof to Lantronix. Any estimates of shipping or delivery dates displayed or discussed online are preliminary good-faith estimates and shall in no way be binding or create any representation or warranty by Lantronix. If Purchaser is permitted by Lantronix to reject any Products delivered hereunder, Purchaser’s only remedies are to: (i) return rejected Products for full credit at the price charged (excluding shipping and transportation costs); or (ii) accept a conforming portion of any shipment; or (iii) have rejected Products replaced by Lantronix. Notwithstanding anything to contrary herein, orders for Products that are not listed in Lantronix’ current price book, including, but not limited to, semi-custom or custom product that have special markings, have received special testing, or are specifically manufactured for Purchaser, may not be cancelled except under the provisions of a prior written agreement between Purchaser and Lantronix that sets forth the cancellation charges to be paid by Purchaser in the event of cancellation. If the above prior written agreement is not in place the charges shall be 100%, and payable in full by Purchaser.
4. SECURITY INTEREST. Purchaser hereby grants Lantronix a first position, priority security interest in any and all Products, and any other property into which the Products as collateral may be converted (including, but not limited to, monies received from a resale or distribution of such Products, if a resale or distribution is otherwise permitted, or any product into which Products are combined, incorporated or used), until full and complete payment (including, but not limited to, any applicable interest and other fees due) is made to Lantronix. Purchaser further hereby names and appoints Lantronix as its attorney‑in‑fact to file a financing statement under California Commercial Code Division 9, effective on the date of any order hereunder, relating to Products, and to take any other action to perfect the first position, priority security interest of Lantronix in such Products.
5. WARRANTIES. If the Product consist of software produced by Lantronix (“Software”), Lantronix warrants only that for a period of sixty (60) calendar days from the date of shipment of the Product, that such Software will operate substantially according to Lantronix specifications (if such Software is used in accordance with instructions provided by Lantronix); in the event that any Software fails to meet the aforementioned warranty, the sole, exclusive and only obligation of Lantronix shall be to replace such unit with another unit of the same Software following the Purchaser’s return to Lantronix of the defective Software (collectively, the “Limited Warranty”). Purchaser is responsible for the costs and expenses associated with any return under the Limited Warranty. Lantronix shall be responsible only for that freight associated with any replacement Software being returned to Purchaser. Lantronix warrants Products of its manufacture, excluding Software, to be free from defects in material and workmanship for the period of time stated on the specific Product (“Product Warranty”); see web link below for more information. Lantronix will transfer to Purchaser any transferable warranties that Lantronix receives from the manufacturer (if not Lantronix) of the Product. In the event of a breach of this Product Warranty, Lantronix' liability shall be limited (at Lantronix' sole option and election) to (i) refund of Purchaser’s purchase price for such affected Products (without any interest or other compensation or expenses therefor), (ii) repair of such Products, or (iii) replacement of such Products; provided that in each case, such Products must be returned to Lantronix within the applicable warranty period, pursuant to Lantronix’ prevailing RMA policies (such policies are available upon request from Lantronix). Prior to the return of any Product, Purchaser must have contacted Lantronix and obtained a return material authorization (RMA) number. Except for repaired Products returned to Purchaser pursuant to (ii) above, all other Products (and parts thereof) returned to Lantronix shall become the sole and exclusive property of Lantronix. The Product Warranty does not cover neglect, normal wear and tear, damage caused by the user or damage caused by improper installation, repair or modification of Products, or failure to maintain Products in accordance with Lantronix' or the manufacturer’s applicable instructions. Any service requested by a Purchaser related to problems not covered by the Product Warranty will be subject to an additional charge and will be separately billed to Purchaser at Lantronix' prevailing standard rates for time and materials. Other than as expressly stated herein, Lantronix makes absolutely no other warranty whatsoever (express, implied or otherwise) with respect to any Software, Products, these Terms or otherwise. WITHOUT LIMITATION TO THE FOREGOING, EXCEPT AS IS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, LANTRONIX SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING (WITHOUT LIMITATION): INFRINGEMENT; TITLE; MERCHANTABILITY; OR SUITABILITY FOR ANY PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE OF ANY PRODUCT OR SOFTWARE. Except as expressly set forth herein, Lantronix’ prevailing warranty policies posted on its website shall apply to and govern warranties related to Products under the Terms (such policies are located at http://www.lantronix.com/support/warranty.html); provided, that in the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the warranty policies noted in these Terms and those warranty policies posted on the Lantronix website, the former shall prevail and control.
6. EQUIPMENT CHANGES. Lantronix may, at its sole and absolute discretion, and without any notice thereof to Purchaser before or after the applicable order, make any changes to any equipment used with respect to any Product (including, but not limited to, as such changes may relate to design, manufacturing, production or testing of Products) that: (i) do not affect physical or functional interchangeability of the Product; or (ii) allow any Lantronix equipment to perform at a higher level of assembly, or (iii) are required for reasons of health or safety, or (iv) are necessary to meet any equipment specifications.
7. EXPORT. Purchaser understands that Lantronix Products are subject to regulation by governmental agencies of the United States, including, but not limited to: the U.S. Department of Commerce; the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC); and, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Purchaser agrees to comply with all export and re-export control laws and regulations.

Purchaser also covenants that it will not export, directly or indirectly, or sell, re export, transfer, divert, or otherwise dispose of any Product, software or technology (including products derived from or based on such technology) received from Lantronix to any destination, entity, or person prohibited by the laws or regulations of the United States, without obtaining prior authorization from the competent government authorities as required by those laws and regulations.
8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in no event shall Lantronix be liable (regardless of the theory of liability) for: (a) any special, consequential, incidental or punitive damages (including, without limitation, for lost profits or revenues), even if Lantronix was informed of the possibility of such damages, related to, in connection with or arising from the Terms or Products; or (b) total cumulative liability hereunder in connection with, related to or arising from the Terms or Products in amounts greater than the amount actually paid by Purchaser to Lantronix hereunder. The parties expressly acknowledge and agree that the limitations of liability set forth in this paragraph are an essential part of the Terms, and in the absence of such limitations, the economic terms of the Terms would have been substantially different than provided herein and/or the parties would not have agreed to the Terms.
9. INDEMNIFICATION. Purchaser (“Indemnitor”) will, at its own expense, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Lantronix, its subsidiaries, affiliates, manufacturers and agents, and their respective officers, directors, shareholders, agents, representative, contractors, employees and customers (each, an “Indemnitiee”, and collectively, “Indemnitees”) from and against any and all loss, cost, expense, damage, claim, demand, or liability, including (without limitation) reasonable attorney and professional fees and costs, and the cost of settlement, compromise, judgment, or verdict incurred by, or demanded of, an Indemnitee (collectively, “Losses”), arising out of, resulting from or occurring in connection with: (a) the Indemnitor’s gross negligence, bad faith, willful misconduct, breach of any of the terms of these Terms or violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; (b) violation of any other third-party intellectual property right, or other property or personal right; (c) the Indemnitor’s marketing, installation, sale or support of any Product; or (d) any use or sale of the Products in life support equipment. Indemnitee shall have the exclusive right to control, with counsel of its own choosing, the defense and/or settlement of any Losses.
10. ADVICE/TRAINING. Any technical advice offered or given (whether online or offline, or whether by written, oral or visual discussions or presentations) by Lantronix to Purchaser for any Products is only as a free accommodation to Purchaser. Lantronix shall have absolutely no responsibilities or liabilities whatsoever therefrom. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that no installation, training or education is provided under the Terms, unless specifically agreed in writing by Lantronix. If Purchaser receives any training from Lantronix, such training is personal to the persons receiving such training. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that any persons receiving such training may not be capable of operating the Products.
11. MISCELLANEOUS. a) The Terms contain the entire agreement between the parties and supersede any prior or contemporaneous oral or written agreements or understandings (express, implied or otherwise) between the parties relating to the purchase of Products by Purchaser. b) The Terms may not be modified, amended or cancelled without Lantronix' prior written consent; provided, that Lantronix may, in its sole and absolute discretion, modify or change any aspect of the Terms at any time, effective upon notice to Purchaser or by (i) mailing or electronically sending the change or updated Terms or (ii) by posting the change or the updated Terms on the applicable website or online platform/exchange of Lantronix. The end of these Terms specifies when the Terms were last revised.

Lantronix reserves the right, but has no obligation, to modify the Terms as it applies to any specific Purchaser, provided that any and all such special modifications must be in a signed writing between Lantronix and the applicable Purchaser. Any specialized modifications so made shall apply exclusively and only to the Purchaser that is a party to such written agreement. c ) No delay, failure or omission to exercise any right, power or remedy accruing to Lantronix under the Terms (or its breach or default thereof by Purchaser) shall impair, or be deemed a waiver of, any such right, power or remedy of Lantronix. d) If any provisions hereof shall be held unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then (i) the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected and in full force and effect, and (ii) such unenforceable provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible under the circumstances so as to effectuate the original intent of the parties with respect to such provision. e) The Terms shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws (excluding any conflicts of law provisions) of the State of California applicable to contracts wholly executed and to be performed therein. The parties agree that the United National Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions shall not apply to the Terms. f) No Dispute arising from or related to the Terms shall be instituted by Purchaser more than one (1) year after the cause of action has accrued. Any claim, controversy, action, dispute, suit or proceeding arising out of, related to, or in connection with these Terms (each, a “Dispute”) shall be brought in the state and federal courts in Orange County, California. Purchaser hereby expressly consents to the exclusive venue and personal jurisdiction of such courts. The prevailing party in any Dispute shall be entitled to recover its reasonable expenses, including (without limitation) attorneys’ fees and court costs. g) The rights and remedies of Lantronix hereunder are cumulative and may be exercised singularly or concurrently without prejudice thereof to Lantronix. h) The Terms create no rights or benefits enforceable by any third party. i) Lantronix will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform acts due to causes beyond its control (including, without limitation, fire, flood, strike, civil disturbance, terrorism, war or Acts of God). If any such circumstances occur, Lantronix shall provide notice to Purchaser and Lantronix’ time for performance will be extended for a period of time equal to the duration of the delay or default caused. (j) The Terms will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors, heirs, executors and permitted assigns. Neither the Terms, nor any rights or obligations hereunder, may be assigned or otherwise transferred by Purchaser without the prior written consent of Lantronix. Any attempted assignment in violation of this paragraph shall be null and void. Purchaser shall be deemed to have consented to the Terms and each and every provision herein by submitting an order for any Product to Lantronix. k) Purchaser shall be deemed to have signed and accepted the Terms by any of the following: its electronic signature, placement of an order, or submission of payment information for any order; provided, that any and all Orders shall nevertheless be subject to Lantronix’ acceptance thereof . l) The article, section and paragraph headings used herein are for convenience only and shall be of no effect in construing or interpreting the Terms. m) The Terms shall be interpreted as having been drafted together by each of the parties and duly reviewed by each party with the assistance of its respective legal counsel. n) Nothing in the Terms will be construed to constitute an agency, partnership, joint venture or employer-employee relationship between the parties.
