General Conditions Rider


The documents relating to our agreement may consist of the Agreement, the Schedule of Locations, the Customer Profile, and this General Conditions Rider, all of which shall be executed and/or delivered prior to the Effective Date and any subsequent modification (collectively, the “Agreement Documents”).  A modification may only be made by a written amendment to the Agreement or proposal signed by both parties (in each case, a “Modification”).  The intent of the Agreement Documents is to include all items necessary for the proper execution and completion of the work and for services performed by EEDS. The Agreement Documents are complementary, and what is required by one shall be binding as if required by all; performance by EEDS shall be required to the extent consistent with the Agreement Documents and reasonably inferable from them as being necessary to produce the intended results.


The Agreement Documents form the agreement for services and/or work performed by EEDS hereunder.  The Agreement Documents represent the entire and integrated agreement between the parties hereto and supersedes prior negotiations, representations or agreements, either oral or written.  The Agreement Documents may be amended or modified only by a Modification.  The Agreement Documents shall not be construed to create a contractual relationship of any kind (1) between EEDS and the Manufacturer or Supplier/Distributor; (2) between the Customer and a Sub-Contractor or Sub-Sub-Contractor; (3) between the Customer and the Manufacturer or Supplier/Distributor; or (4) between any person or entity other than EEDS and Customer.


EEDS shall remain the owner of all parts installed under this Agreement on or in the contracted premises of Customer until such time as this Agreement expires and any and all outstanding amounts are paid.  Upon payment, all parts installed under this Agreement shall become the property of Customer.


Customer hereby provides EEDS with authorization to enter all locations under Agreement to provide service and/or repair at each of the locations, based on agreed level of service.  Customer also agrees to grant EEDS’s authorized service personnel access to all lighting fixtures by ensuring that secured areas (including access doors and gates) are opened, boxes and other obstructions and personnel are removed from areas immediately adjacent to the fixtures being serviced and, in the case of outdoor fixtures, all obstructions are removed, such as trees and movable equipment.  An additional charge, equivalent to EEDS’s prevailing rates per hour, or part thereof, and per person, will be added to Customer’s billing for interruption of EEDS’s work, where such interruption takes place through no fault of EEDS or its personnel.

In addition, the Customer acknowledges that any physical area in which EEDS performs any work pursuant to this Agreement which is used, in fact, as a construction zone, and that as such, hazardous conditions may be present, the Customer, if applicable, shall (a) ensure that no persons shall be allowed in the construction zone unless authorized by EEDS; (b) notify all its personnel as well as others in the vicinity that they shall not enter upon the construction zone; (c) take all steps necessary to ensure that they do not enter into the construction zone; and (d) indemnify EEDS from any and all claims made or losses suffered by reason of any unauthorized persons coming on to the construction zone.  In the event that any unauthorized persons do come into the construction zone, then EEDS shall have the right to cease any or all work so as to minimize the risk of any such persons, in which event all deadlines for performance by EEDS hereunder shall be extended to and compensated for time lost, and the Customer shall reimburse EEDS for any and all additional costs and expenses incurred by EEDS by reason of such delay, including but not limited to any additional labor expenses incurred by EEDS (at the prevailing rates of EEDS at the time of the Agreement).

Customer shall notify its customers and employees to remove all personal property within the construction zone so as to avoid or minimize possible damage.  EEDS shall have no obligation to move any such personal property, equipment, inventory, or other items.  However, if EEDS does move such personal property, EEDS shall not be responsible for any loss of or damage to said personal property.  The Customer specifically agrees to look only to whatever insurance Customer chooses to have on same, and Customer specifically waives any rights of subrogation its insurer may have as to EEDS, etc.  Customer shall ensure that such items are moved in an expedient manner and Customer agrees to cooperate in every respect to facilitate the timely installation and repairs for services.  EEDS shall not be liable for any delays caused by any party other than EEDS, its employees or authorized agents.  Furthermore, in the event that any act or omission on the part of the Customer, its employees, agents or representatives shall in any way create a situation which EEDS must assign/employ additional personnel and/or additional tradesman time, then the Customer shall reimburse EEDS for the costs of all such additional time at the then standard hourly rate.
