    1. TERMS AND CONDITIONS

    The following are the terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) on which Southern Grind Inc. (“Southern

    Grind”) agrees to make available Southern Grind knives and related products (“Products”) to retailers (“Retailer”).

    Only retailers who have submitted an application for a retail account and whose application have been approved

    by Southern Grind are eligible to order Products. By submitting an order to Southern Grind, Retailer agrees to and

    accepts these Terms and Conditions with respect to all transactions with Southern Grind and further agrees that

    any conflicting or additional terms contained in any purchase order or other documentation sent to Southern

    Grind are rejected by Southern Grind unless approved in writing by an officer of Southern Grind.

    2. RESALE OF PRODUCTS; MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICE

    2.1 Retail Sale Only. Products are sold to Retailer strictly for resale to consumers purchasing for their own

    personal use and not for resale or distribution to other retailers or wholesalers.

    2.2 Territorial Restriction. Retailer may resell and distribute the Products solely from the retail location or

    locations listed in Retailer’s application and solely to consumers taking delivery of the Products within the United

    States and its possessions and Canada. Without limiting the foregoing, Retailer may not: (a) distribute any

    Products to any person or entity if Retailer knows or has reason to believe that such person or entity intends to

    resell or re-distribute such Products, or (b) market or distribute Products from any location outside of the United

    States and its possessions.

    2.3 Online Sales. Retailer may not sell, or offer to sell, Products through any online site other than Retailer’s own

    retail site; provided further that Retailer shall be permitted to advertise and sell Products through online “auction”

    sites and/or online “classified” sites so long as such sales are strictly in compliance with paragraph 2.4 below (i.e.,

    no “best offer” or “auction” type sales that result in the advertising of Products at less than the “minimum

    advertised price”).

    2.4 Minimum Advertised Price. Retailer may not advertise (whether in print, electronic, television, radio or other

    media) any Product for sale at a price below Southern Grind’s “minimum advertised price” as currently published

    by Southern Grind. Retailer will take reasonable precautions to prevent any price below the then-current

    Minimum Advertised Price from being detected and published by any Internet search engines or price scraper

    program.

    3. MARKETING

    3.1 Trademarks. Retailer may use the trademarks and logos of Southern Grind solely to identify itself as

    authorized to resell the Products and to advertise the Products as permitted herein; provided, however, that

    Retailer complies with Southern Grind’s then-current published trademark guidelines in all such usages, as such

    guidelines may be revised from time to time.

    3.2 Marketing Materials. All Southern Grind product displays and other “point of purchase” materials provided by

    Southern Grind remain the property of Southern Grind and Retailer agrees to return such materials promptly on

    Southern Grind’s request.

    4. PRICE; SHIPPING; RETURNS

    4.1 Price. Products are sold at Southern Grind’s then-current “dealer” price, as stated in the Price List (the "Price

    List"), in effect on the date Retailer's order is accepted by Southern Grind. Southern Grind may, in its sole

    discretion, revise the Price List from time to time. Shipment of all Products shall be F.O.B. origin and risk of loss or

    damage to all Products shall pass to Retailer upon delivery by Southern Grind to the carrier selected for shipment.

    Orders for Products shall also be subject to such handling and/or processing charges as are stated in the Price List.

    All past due balances shall bear interest at a rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month until paid in full.

    4.2 Orders. Orders for Products must be initiated by written purchase order, facsimile or telephone and must be

    prepaid by Retailer by bank or cashier’s check, Visa or Mastercard or, for Retailers with Southern Grind credit in

    good standing, will be shipped on net 30 day terms, and are subject to acceptance by Southern Grind. Southern

    Grind has no obligation to accept any order from Retailer. In addition, Southern Grind may withhold shipment of

    or cancel accepted orders if Southern Grind has reason to believe that Retailer is not strictly in compliance with

    these Terms and Conditions.

    4.3 Taxes. All prices are exclusive of all taxes, duties, surcharges or other charges levied or imposed by any

    governmental authority and required to be collected from Retailer.

    4.4 Returns. No return will be accepted unless a return merchandise authorization (“RMA”) number has been

    issued by Southern Grind. Returns (other than those described in paragraph 5.1 below, i.e., due to a defect in

    workmanship) are subject to a ten percent (10%) restocking fee.

    5. ACCEPTANCE; PRODUCT WARRANTY

    5.1 Acceptance. Retailers have a period of ten (10) days after delivery of any Product within which to report any

    defects in workmanship. If Retailer notifies Southern Grind within such ten-day period of a defect in workmanship

    which was not caused by the shipper, Southern Grind will promptly, at its option and as Retailer’s exclusive

    remedy, either replace the defective Product (in which case Retailer will have an additional ten-day period within

    which to report any defects in the replacement Product) or refund the purchase price paid by Retailer. All

    Products are deemed “accepted” by Retailer if notice of a defect in workmanship is not received by Southern Grind

    within such ten-day period. Damage incurred in shipping must be reported promptly to the shipper and to

    Southern Grind.

    5.2 Product Warranty. All Products sold to consumers by an approved Retailer are subject to Southern Grind’s

    Limited Lifetime Warranty as published by Southern Grind. Retailer may not misrepresent the terms of Southern

    Grind’s Limited Lifetime Warranty to any consumer, nor modify, or purport to modify, any warranty terms on

    behalf of Southern Grind. Retailer may not accept Products for warranty replacement or repair on Southern

    Grind’s behalf. All requests for warranty repair or replacement from a consumer shall be directed to Southern

    Grind.

    5.3 Disclaimer of Warranties. Retailer’s sole remedy for any defects in any Product is as stated in paragraph 5.1

    above. THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS OR CONDITIONS OF ANY NATURE, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,

    RESPECTING THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS

    RESPECTING MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR ARISING BY STATUTE OR OTHERWISE

    IN LAW OR FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.

    6. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

    6.1 Disclaimer of Consequential Damages. SOUTHERN GRIND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO RETAILER FOR ANY

    INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOST

    PROFITS, LOST GOODWILL OR LOSS OF BUSINESS, EVEN IF RETAILER HAS ADVISED SOUTHERN GRIND OF THE

    POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOUTHERN GRIND SHALL NOT BE BOUND BY OR LIABLE FOR ANY

    REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, RESPECTING PRODUCTS MADE BY RETAILER

    OR ITS AGENTS, EMPLOYEES OR REPRESENTATIVES.

    6.2 Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL SOUTHERN GRIND’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO RETAILER IN

    CONNECTION WITH ANY PRODUCT PURCHASED EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID BY RETAILER FOR SUCH PRODUCT.

    THE LIMITATIONS CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION SHALL NOT APPLY TO CLAIMS FOR PERSONAL INJURY.

    7. INDEMNITY

    Retailer shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, indemnify and hold Southern Grind harmless from and against

    all claims, demands, damages, costs, charges, expenses, actions, losses and liabilities of any kind, including, but not

    limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs, arising out of or relating to: (a) any breach by Retailer of any

    of these Terms and Conditions, (b) any warranties or representations made by Retailer respecting any of the

    Products, and (c) any other acts or omissions of Retailer, its employees, agents, and representatives. The

    preceding sentence shall not apply to claims, demands, damages, costs, charges, expenses, actions, losses or

    liabilities to the extent caused by the sole negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct of Southern Grind.

    8. GENERAL

    These Terms and Conditions, and all disputes arising between Southern Grind and Retailer, shall be governed by

    and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia. Retailer and Southern Grind each agree that

    any dispute between them shall lie within the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in

    Fulton County, Georgia and the Northern District of Georgia, respectively, and Retailer consents to the exercise of

    jurisdiction by any such court. Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between Retailer and

    Southern Grind respecting the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior proposals, agreements, negotiations,

    representations, writings and all other communications, whether written or oral, between Retailer and Southern

    Grind. If either party shall commence a legal action to collect any amounts due or to enforce any other of these

    Terms and Conditions, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and other

    costs and expenses in connection with such action.
