Terms and Conditions of Sale
THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS EXCLUSIVELY GOVERN ALL SALES TO YOU FROM SELLER UNLESS WE HAVE EXECUTED A SEPARATE SALES AGREEMENT. “Seller” means Amkor Technology, Inc., Amkor Technology Singapore Holding Pte. Ltd., and their respective subsidiaries. This document is intended to be the parties’ final expression and exclusive statement of the terms of their agreement. No prior representations or statements relating to the sale of the Services provided by any Seller representative, which are not stated in this document, will be binding on Seller. No addition to or modification of these Terms and Conditions or the quotation to which these Terms and Conditions accompany (“Quotation”) will be binding upon Seller unless specifically agreed to by Seller in a writing referencing these Terms and Conditions and signed by a duly authorized Seller representative. No course of dealing, no usage of trade, and no course of performance will add to, modify, or be relevant to explain these Terms and Conditions or the Quotation. Any additional or different Buyer terms or conditions are expressly objected to and will be deemed a material alteration of, and be inapplicable to, the transactions contemplated by the Quotation and these Terms and Conditions unless specifically agreed to by Seller in a writing referencing these Terms and Conditions and signed by a duly authorized Seller representative. Buyer’s issuance of a Purchase Order, acceptance of goods or services from Seller, or payment for goods or services to Seller constitutes Buyer’s agreement to these Terms and Conditions.
BUYER DIRECTIVES AND PRODUCTS
Buyer will provide Seller with written instructions, requirements, or specifications (“Buyer Directives”) applicable to any of the semiconductor assembly and test services Seller performs for Buyer and which are intended for mass production (“Services”). Buyer may submit orders for Services (“Purchase Orders”) to be performed on its semiconductor devices, which after the performance of Services become finished goods (“Products”). The prices for Services are set forth in the Quotation (“Service Fee”). No change to the Buyer Directives will be effective unless set forth in writing in an engineering change notice that references the Quotation and is executed by Buyer and agreed to by Seller in writing. Any such notice must specify the timing for implementation of the proposed change. Buyer will use commercially reasonable efforts to communicate to Seller any proposed change sufficiently prior to the time Buyer desires the change to take effect so as to give Seller a reasonable amount of time to consider and implement such change, if approved. Depending on the scope and magnitude of the change, the parties will adjust Service Fees to reflect additional costs and performance obligations of Seller. Buyer is solely responsible for: (i) engineering and developing the Buyer Directives to meets its requirements; (ii) final approval of the Buyer Directives; (iii) any and all qualifications of the Products relating to suitability for use in any end Product application of Buyer’s customers and for determining the suitability of the Services for use in any end Product application; and (iv) determining the suitability of the Services for use in a Product. Buyer represents and warrants that its Products are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. As soon as reasonably possible, Buyer will notify Seller of, and keep Seller apprised of any developments regarding any claim, or to Buyer’s knowledge, any potential claim against any Product for which the Services have been rendered and which claim or potential claim would reasonably be understood to be attributable to the Services. Buyer and Seller will work in good faith to establish an electronic data connection between the parties for the efficient transmission of routine business data, including but not limited to communication of forecasts and responses, Purchase Orders, shipping information, and any other information either party needs to fulfill its obligations in this Quotation. Each party is responsible for its own costs incurred in establishing such connectivity. Any Seller Quotation, or Buyer Purchase Orders placed through any such electronic data connection, are governed by these Terms and Conditions.
SERVICE FEES; TERMS OF PAYMENT; TAX
Seller will provide Buyer with any updates to such Service Fees prior to commencement of the applicable Services. All payments are due in full in U.S. dollars, or other currency as may be agreed to between the parties, within 30 days from the invoice date, or other terms as may be agreed to by the parties, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account set forth in the invoice. Any dispute relating to any invoice must be made in writing and made prior to the due date, and any such dispute will not affect payment of undisputed amounts. If Buyer fails to pay Seller any amount due, Seller may take one or more of the following actions: (i) stop performance and delivery; (ii) place Buyer on credit hold; (iii) refuse to accept new Purchase Orders; or (iv) apply, on a daily basis, an interest charge on all overdue amounts to the fullest extent permitted by law. Any cost incurred by Seller in connection with such failure, including, but not limited to storage costs, will be paid by Buyer upon submission of Seller’s invoice.
FOR TEST SERVICES ONLY: Basic electrical failure verification is included in the Quotation unless otherwise indicated therein. The parties acknowledge that basic electrical verification includes only the effort necessary to determine that device failures are not caused by improper load board seating, socket wear out or handler misalignment. Unless otherwise specified in the Quotation, the Quotation does not include any effort to determine the root cause of any failure of a device, characterization work, or any other analysis not required to verify that failing devices are valid failures. Service Fees do not include any taxes of any kind. Buyer is solely responsible for and will pay all such taxes, unless Buyer provides Seller with a tax-exemption certificate in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Seller. All payments by Buyer hereunder will be made without setoff or deduction.
Service Fees set forth in the Quotation are subject to change if the precious metals price of gold changes prior to the time Seller begins performance of the Services.
Title, and risk of loss of, or damage to, any Buyer Materials and Products remain with Buyer. Seller will take reasonable precautions to care for Buyer Materials and Products while in its possession. Seller will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet the mutually agreed upon delivery dates. Delay in delivery does not relieve Buyer of its obligation to pay for Services or accept subsequent deliveries. Seller is not liable for any costs, losses, damages, claims, or expenses incurred by Buyer if Seller fails to meet the mutually agreed delivery dates. In the event Buyer requests that Product be delivered to a designated warehouse area at or near Seller’s facility, physical delivery of Product to the designated area will constitute delivery of the Product by Seller. Title to Product not previously vested in Buyer will pass to Buyer upon Seller’s tender of such Product to this designated area. Delivery of the Products is EXW, Seller’s factory (Incoterms 2020). Seller will be relieved of its obligations to the extent Seller is delayed in its ability to perform due to Buyer’s failure to ship Buyer’s Materials in sufficient quantity, with sufficient quality, in a timely manner, or otherwise not in accordance with the forecast or Purchase Orders. If Seller provides confirmation that it has capacity to schedule the Services, such confirmation may be construed only as an indication that Seller would be able to begin performance within the specified period, subject to prior receipt of necessary supplies and documentation and changes in capacity prior to the beginning of the Services. Buyer is responsible for any and all: (i) shipping and storage costs to and from Seller’s facilities; (ii) export and import duties and fees; and (iii) insurance costs applicable to Buyer Materials and Products. Buyer will also be the importer of record for delivery of Products to the location designated by Buyer. Seller will provide reasonable assistance to clear Customer Materials and Products through import and export customs.
RESCHEDULING; CANCELLATION; TERMINATION
Buyer may cancel, reduce, or reschedule the Purchase Order only upon notice to Seller at least 30 days prior to the shipment date specified in Seller’s acceptance documentation, subject to Seller’s cancellation charges, including, but not limited to, costs for work-in-progress and other expenses. Buyer may reschedule the shipment of the Purchase Order one time without penalty, provided that the actual shipment occurs within 30 days from the originally specified shipment date. In the event Buyer instructs Seller to postpone shipment more than 30 days from the originally specified shipment date, Seller will be entitled to invoice Buyer for the Purchase Order immediately and Buyer will be liable for, and pay within 30 days of the invoice date, the entire purchase price of the Purchase Order so postponed whether or not the shipment date has then occurred. Seller will have the right to terminate a Quotation or Purchase Order at any time for any reason effective immediately upon notice to Buyer if there is any claim of infringement of Intellectual Property Rights arising out of or relating to the Product, Buyer Materials, Buyer Directives, or the importation, use, possession, sale, or delivery of any Product, Buyer Materials, or Buyer Directives. In the event of any act of bankruptcy, whether voluntary or involuntary, or any insolvency proceeding instituted by or against Buyer, with respect to any Services covered by an outstanding Quotation or Purchase Order, in additional to any other rights Seller may have as a matter of applicable law, Seller may terminate any Purchase Order and stop delivery of any Product for which Services have been performed.
Title, and risk of loss of, or damage to, any Buyer Materials will remain with Buyer at all times. “Buyer Materials” means die, wafers, or other materials or components consigned by Buyer to Seller or technical information provided by Buyer for use in the Services. Seller will take reasonable precautions to care for Buyer Materials while in its possession.
STOCK REQUIREMENT; MATERIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Seller will purchase Materials and maintain an inventory of such Materials according to Seller’s standard order policy, which includes 3 weeks safety stock, plus lead time on order based on the level of Seller’s written commit to Customer’s rolling forecast. “Lead Times” means the amount of time required to receive Materials. Lead Times vary depending on quantity, technology, and supplier capacity. The amount of safety stock may be increased or decreased upon Buyer’s written request. The Lead Times to be used in Material Acquisition will be available to the Buyer upon request. Where reasonably possible, Seller will use commercially reasonable efforts to shorten Lead Times and reduce the “Minimum Order Quantity” or “MOQ”, or the minimum batch size of an order, which may vary and change over time depending on type of materials, supplier’s terms, technology, supplier capacity, and timing of the order. Seller will be relieved of its obligations to the extent attributable to: (i) Buyer; (ii) an interruption to Seller’s supplier’s business operations; or (iii) a force majeure event as provided in this Quotation. Seller will provide Buyer a monthly report identifying Excess Materials as well as the aging of other Materials (“Pre-Alert”). If Buyer has a good-faith dispute regarding the contents of the Pre-Alert, it must provide Seller notice of the dispute within 30 days of receipt of the Pre-Alert or Buyer will be deemed to agree with the Pre-Alert. Buyer must issue a Purchase Order for Services to consume Excess Materials once they have aged 90 days from the date of receipt of the Materials by Seller. These Excess Materials must be consumed within 180 days from the date of receipt of the Materials by Seller. “Excess Materials” means Materials with an on-hand or on-order balance purchased by Seller that are not consumed or needed by Buyer for causes attributable to (i)Buyer, including without limitation: (A) Buyer’s failure to issue a forecast or orders to consume the Materials; (B) Buyer cancellations or reschedules; (C) design changes or conversions; (D) obsolescence; (E) Buyer’s instruction to Seller not to use the Material; (F) MOQ that result in more Materials than needed; (G) Materials requested by Buyer for which it is not apparent that such Materials are required based on Buyer’s forecast; (H) unqualified Materials requested by Buyer; (I) additional safety stock requested by Buyer; or (ii) Material suppliers: (A) requiring long-term or long-Lead Time orders; or (B) not accepting cancellations, reductions, or mix changes of Material orders, all as indicated in a Pre-Alert . If the Excess Materials are not consumed by Buyer through the provision of Services by Seller within the time stated, Seller will invoice Buyer for the purchase price paid by Seller for such Excess Materials, plus a fifteen percent (15%) handling charge, and such Excess Materials will be reclassified as Buyer consigned inventory, and unless otherwise agreed by the parties, stored in a Seller warehouse until the earlier of one year after it is classified as consigned material or the material expires. The consigned materials will be consumed according to Buyer’s forecast. Buyer will return consigned materials to Buyer at Buyer’s expense once consigned materials have been stored at Seller for one year as provided herein or the material expires, whichever occurs first. Upon Buyer’s request or when Buyer’s forecast indicates that the Excess Materials will be consumed, Seller may extend the shelf life of the Materials and use such recertified Materials for assembly services. If Buyer requests Seller not to recertify Materials or not to use recertified Materials, the Materials will be deemed Excess Materials and Buyer will pay for the Excess Materials as provided for herein. Buyer will pay Seller in full within the time period stated in the Quotation. If Buyer terminates the Purchase Order for any reason, or Seller terminates this Purchase Order for its convenience, this Quotation will remain in effect until all Material in Seller’s possession is consumed or purchased by Buyer as provided herein. Seller may elect at any time to require Buyer to purchase all Materials in Seller’s possession and convert the Materials to consigned Materials in the event of a material breach by Buyer. EXCEPT FOR A BREACH OF THE CONFIDENTIALITY SECTION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE UNDER THIS SECTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR ANY LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF TIME, INCONVENIENCE, COMMERCIAL LOSS, OR LOST PROFITS, SAVINGS, OR REVENUES, TO THE FULL EXTENT SUCH MAY BE DISCLAIMED BY LAW. IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY’S LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OR FORM OF THE CLAIM, BE GREATER THAN THE COST OF THE MATERIALS GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM PLUS ANY FEES AS MAY BE PROVIDED FOR IN THIS AGREEMENT.
Within fifteen (15) days following delivery date of any Product, Buyer will conduct an inspection of such Products (“Inspection Period”). The methodology, applicable criteria and other relevant details for such inspections will be as agreed by Buyer and Seller. Failure by Buyer to give notice to Seller of any full or partial rejection of such Products by the expiration of the applicable Inspection Period will be deemed an acceptance of such Products by Buyer. If during the Inspection Period any Product(s) fail to pass inspection, Buyer will give written notice to Seller describing in reasonable detail the reason for any rejection. Buyer will not return any Products without the prior written consent of Seller. Seller and Buyer will agree on disposal or correction of rejected Products and on any necessary Service Fee adjustment.
PRODUCT USE RESTRICTION
Seller’s Services are not intended or authorized for medical device applications or for pharmaceutical end uses. Buyer will not knowingly sell or use the Product in medical devices or pharmaceutical applications. Seller will have the right to terminate a Quotation in the event of a breach of this obligation by Buyer immediately upon notice to Buyer. Buyer will indemnify and defend Seller, its officers, employees, subsidiaries, and distributors harmless against all claims, costs, damages and expenses, and reasonable attorneys’ fees arising out of or related to claims of bodily injury or death associated with such unauthorized use.
For a period of ninety (90) days from the date of delivery of Products to Buyer (“Warranty Period”), Seller warrants that all Services will comply with the Buyer Directives and will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. Seller makes no warranty to Buyer express or implied whatsoever with regard to the Buyer Materials, including but not limited to the workmanship, quality, or functionality.

Buyer may only return Products to Seller in accordance with a mutually agreed upon warranty return procedure. The reperformance or rework of the affected Products by Seller will not extend the duration of the Warranty Period. Seller’s warranty hereunder does not apply to the extent the nonconformance or defect was the result of: (a) normal wear and tear, abuse, misuse, unauthorized or faulty repairs, alteration or tampering by any party other than Seller or operation in a manner in violation of installation, storage, handling, operation or maintenance instructions; (b) the Buyer Directives; (c) the design of the Products; or (d) Buyer. THIS WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES WHETHER WRITTEN, ORAL, EXPRESSED, OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF NONINFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THIS WARRANTY IS BUYER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY AND REMEDY FOR SERVICES REGARDLESS OF WHEN THE DEFECT OR NON-CONFORMANCE ARISES AND WHETHER A CLAIM IS BASED ON CONTRACT, INDEMNITY, WARRANTY, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE.

FURTHERMORE, SELLER WILL NOT BE LIABLE, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OR FORM OF THE CLAIM FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE OR ANY OTHER ECONOMIC LOSS OR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECULATIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS QUOTATION EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Neither party will export, reexport, or transship directly or indirectly, product or Seller’s technical data to any country restricted by the U.S. government, except as authorized by the appropriate U.S. governmental agencies.
