In these Terms and Conditions, Escape Fitness USA LLC is the Supplier and you are the Customer.
1.1 All orders are subject to these Terms and Conditions (“Conditions”) which supersede any terms and conditions you may include with any purchase order regardless of whether Escape sign these or not. We reserve the right to change these Conditions at any time, and you are deemed to accept any changes on the 7th day after the date of any amendment, or the date an order is placed, whichever is the sooner. In the event that products are re-sold, it is your responsibility to ensure that the ultimate purchaser is made aware of and accepts the products on that basis.
1.2 Samples, drawings or descriptive or illustrative advertising or other materials contained in brochures or catalogs do not form part of the contract.
1.3 Receipt of an electronic, telephonic or other form of purchase order does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right, at any time after receipt of your order, to accept or decline your order for any reason, or to supply less than the quantity ordered of any item. Orders are accepted by the issue of an Order Confirmation, normally sent within 48 hours of receipt of your Order, at which time a binding contract will exist between us and the Customer may not amend or cancel the order without our written consent. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the details set out on the Order Confirmation are complete and accurate.
2.1 The price of the products shall be the price set out in the Order Confirmation. Prices are subject to change on not less than 30 days notice.
2.2 Payment for the products shall be made in full at the time the order is placed. Sales Tax will automatically be added to orders where liability arises unless Sales Tax Exemption and Re-sale Certificates have been filed. Please note: Sales Tax Exemption and Re-sale Certificates must be filed BEFORE orders are placed to ensure zero rating. We accept payment by company check (allow 10 days for clearance) or wire transfer in U.S. Dollars only. A penalty of $25 will be charged for any returned payment whatever the reason.
2.3 Invoices are issued when the products are shipped.
2.4 Credit Account Customers shall pay for products in accordance with their credit account terms and time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract. Interest is payable on overdue accounts at the rate of 1.5% per month (or such lower rate as may be the maximum permitted by law), accruing on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount.
2.5 Credit Account Customers shall pay all amounts due in full, without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and they shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counter-claim to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part. We reserve the right to revoke any credit extended in the event that you fail to pay in accordance with your credit account terms save where a good faith dispute (as determined by us) concerning sums due exists. When credit is revoked, products shall be paid for in advance of shipment.
3.1 Most products are available to ship immediately, however, some products may have lead times. Orders are accepted for products strictly subject to availability and to these Conditions.
3.2 Where orders contain multiple products, we will make every effort to ship all products contained in the order at the same time. Products that are unavailable at the time of shipping shall be shipped as they become available unless you advise us to the contrary in writing. You will be charged only for products actually contained in the shipment. You will pay only a single shipping charge as advised in your Order Confirmation which shall be applied to the first invoice issued.
3.3 In the interests of better quality and value, we are constantly improving and updating our products. We therefore reserve the right to change the color, design, specification or packaging in respect of any or all of our product range.
4.1 In respect of any Order for customized, bespoke or special order Goods (including but not limited to flooring, frames, MARS screen, racks etc), the Customer may not amend or cancel an Order once accepted (including positioning of equipment where installation is involved). It is imperative that all Customer requirements are fully and accurately conveyed to the Supplier prior to acceptance of the Order. The Supplier accepts no liability for costs, expenses, damages and losses (including any direct, indirect or consequential losses) suffered or incurred by the Customer or any sub-contractor, agent or third party employed by the Customer arising out of any delay in delivery or installation of the Goods where such delay is caused by inaccuracies of whatever nature in the Customers Order.
4.2 All designs created in respect of any installation are subject to clause 11 below so that the Customer may not use such designs or any designs that the Supplier believes breach the Suppliers Intellectual Property Rights unless a separate contract for the purchase of a license to use the designs is negotiated and entered into. This clause 4.2 shall survive termination of the Contract howsoever determined.
4.3 To the extent that any element or component of the Goods (e.g. line markings, bench upholstery) are to be manufactured in accordance with color and/or design specifications supplied by the Customer, the Customer shall indemnify the Supplier against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including any direct, indirect or consequential losses) suffered or incurred by the Supplier in connection with any claim made against the Supplier for actual or alleged infringement of a third party’s intellectual property rights arising out of or in connection with the Supplier’s use of that component. This clause 4.3 shall survive termination of the Contract howsoever determined.
4.4 The Supplier reserves the right to amend the Specification of the Goods if required so to do by the manufacturer or any applicable statutory or regulatory body.
4.5 Where Contracts involve installation and the Customers installation area does not comply strictly with the Working conditions Specification (“ Specification”) detailed in the Program of Works; the installation shall be delayed until such time as the Customer is compliant with the Specification and the Customer shall be liable to the Supplier for all costs and expenses incurred by the delay. If the Customer delays an installation date on less than 14 days notice; the Customer shall similarly be liable to the Supplier for all costs and expenses incurred by the delay. Without prejudice to the generality of this clause; time when appointed contractors are unable to perform the Contract (“Downtime”) shall be payable to the Supplier hourly rate per man per day (based on an 8 hour day) plus full reimbursement of all travel, accommodation and other expenses properly incurred in anticipation of performance of the Contract and which cannot otherwise be recouped from the relevant provider by the Supplier (Wasted Costs).
5.1 Delivery lead times vary according to the products ordered. Products ordered from stock will be shipped within 48 hours of the date of the Order Confirmation. Any date quoted for delivery is approximate only, and time of delivery is not of the essence. We shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the products that is caused by a Force Majeure Event (as defined in clause 5.5 below), or other event beyond our control, nor any failure by you to provide us with adequate delivery instructions, or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the products.
5.2 Customized, bespoke, special order and assembled products have varying manufacturing lead times which will be notified to you as the estimated delivery date. A firm delivery date will be notified to you once the finished products are physically ready for dispatch.
5.3 Delivery is complete once the products arrive at the exterior access point of the delivery address. Your (or your agents) signature recorded on the Delivery Note (or similar device operated by the carrier) shall be conclusive evidence of the quantities shipped and delivered.
5.4 It is your responsibility to ensure that appropriate arrangements are in place to:
5.4.1 accept delivery of the products; and
5.4.2 where there are large/heavy products delivered; provide adequate manpower to unload the products and dispose of any transit packaging supplied.
5.5 If you (or your agent) fail to accept or take delivery of the products in accordance with clause 5.4 above, then, save where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or by our failure to comply with our obligations under this Contract, then delivery of the products shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00am on the day after the delivery date notified by us. We shall store such products until actual delivery takes place, and charge you for all related costs and expenses (including insurance) incurred in this respect. A Force Majeure Event means an event beyond the control of a party (or any person acting on its behalf), which by its nature could not have been foreseen by such party (or such person), or, if it could have been foreseen, was unavoidable, and includes, without limitation, Acts of God, storms, floods, riots, fires, sabotage, civil commotion or civil unrest, interference by civil or military authorities, acts of war (declared or undeclared) or armed hostilities or other national or international calamity or one or more acts of terrorism or failure of energy sources.
6.1 The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on completion of delivery.
6.2 Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk pursuant to clause 6.1, property in and title to the Goods shall remain with the Supplier until the Supplier has received payment of:
(a) the full price of the Goods that are the subject of the Contract; and
(b) the full price of all other goods and services provided by the Supplier to the Customer under any other contract. Payment of the full price shall include, without limitation, the amount of any interest or other sum payable under the terms of this and all other contracts between the Supplier and Customer.
6.3 Until title passes, the Customer shall:
(a) store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as the Supplier’s property;
(b) not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;
(c) keep the Goods insured against all risks for their full retail price on the Supplier’s behalf from completion of delivery.
(d) maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery; and
(e) give the Supplier such information as the Supplier may reasonably require from time to time relating to the Goods and the financial position of the Customer
6.4 At any time before title to the Goods passes to the Customer, the Supplier may require the Customer to deliver up all goods in its possession that have not been resold and if the Customer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are sold in order to recover them.
7.1 Once an Order Confirmation is issued, orders may only be amended or cancelled if:-
7.1.1 the Customer formally notifies the Supplier in writing by email to [email protected] or Customer Services Department, Escape Fitness LLC., 4434 West Muhlhauser Road, Suite 300, West Chester, OH; and
7.1.2 the notification is received within 14 days of the date of the Order Confirmation; and
7.1.3 no products have been dispatched.
A fee of 10% of the Order value (net of tax) will be charged to cover administration costs in such cases. The Supplier reserves the right to reduce the above fee, in its sole discretion, when the amendment sought by the Customer is “de minimis” or there are other exceptional circumstances justifying the same.
7.2 Where products have already been shipped, and you wish to return some or all of the products; then in respect of products which require no assembly, they may be returned within 14 days after delivery (as recorded by the Carrier) provided you follow the procedure notified by the Customer Service Department who may be contacted on 614 706 4462 or in writing [email protected] or Customer Services Department, Escape Fitness LLC., 4434 West Muhlhauser Road, Suite 300, West Chester, OH . The products must be returned to us and you must pay the cost of shipping. Returned products must reach us in a new and unused condition with all original labels and packaging intact.

7.3 Be-spoke or customized products may not be returned.
7.4 Products may only be returned with a “returns reference number” which you can get from our Customer Service Team. No exceptions! Please call 614 706 4462.
8.1 All deliveries must be checked as soon as received and BEFORE the Delivery Note is signed. When signing for a delivery, you are accepting that the correct number of parcels have been delivered and the products have not been damaged in transit. If there is damage or a discrepancy, you should either refuse the delivery or record the damage or discrepancy on the Delivery Note (or similar device operated by the carrier) and report the claim by telephoning our Customer Services Team within 24 hours of the delivery time. NOTE: the time of delivery is the time recorded on the Delivery Note (or similar device operated by the carrier). It is your responsibility to ensure that the actions above are followed BEFORE SIGNING as mistakes cannot be rectified once the products have been signed for. Reports of damage or discrepancy will not be entertained after the expiration of 24 hours from the time of delivery as recorded on the Delivery Note or similar device operated by the carrier.
8.2 Any latent damage to the products MUST be notified to us by telephoning our Customer Services Team immediately upon discovery when you will need to supply us with full details of the products ordered and the damage identified.
