“Seller and Globalwide Electronics Group LLC hereby agree that if the OCM determines the suspect parts are authentic, then the decision is “final” and Seller and Globalwide Electronics Group LLC hereby agree that if Globalwide Electronics Group LLC or a testing laboratory chosen by Globalwide Electronics Group LLC determines that the electronic parts supplied are suspect/fraudulent/counterfeit, then Seller has the right to: (1) Agree with Globalwide Electronic Group LLC findings and the transaction will be voided; or (2) Verify Globalwide Electronics Group LLC findings by contracting with an Globalwide Electronics Group LLC approved and Seller recognized test laboratory (hereafter referred to as “lab”) for further verification.”

  1. Organization’s burden of

“Since any dispute between Globalwide Electronics Group LLC and Seller may be resolved in a civil proceeding whether in a court of law or in an arbitration, the appropriate burden of proof required for Globalwide Electronics Group LLC to establish that the suspect parts are fraudulent/counterfeit shall be preponderance of the evidence, which means that Globalwide Electronics Group LLC must establish that it is more likely than not that the suspect parts are fraudulent/counterfeit unless Globalwide Electronics Group LLC is trying to establish fraud, which would then raise Globalwide Electronics Group LLC burden of proof to a clear and convincing evidence standard. However, if for whatever reason, the issue of the authenticity of the suspect parts is raised during a criminal proceeding, then the burden of proof that the suspect parts are fraudulent/counterfeit shall be that the suspect parts are fraudulent/counterfeit beyond a reasonable doubt.”

“If Seller accepts Globalwide Electronic Group’s LCC findings and chooses to immediately void the transaction, the suspect electronic parts will not be returned to Seller unless and/or until an independent lab agreed to by both Seller and Globalwide Electronics Group LLC determines that the electronic parts are not suspect fraudulent/counterfeit or fraudulent/counterfeit. Under these circumstances, Globalwide Electronics Group LLC shall retain possession of the suspect electronic parts for a time period at least as long as the applicable statute of limitations under the appropriate Authority(ies) Having   Jurisdiction   following   the   date   upon   which   Seller   received   notification from Globalwide Electronics Group LLC that it was choosing to immediately void the transaction between them. Once this period has expired, then   Globalwide Electronics Group LLC   shall have   the   absolute   right   to destroy   the   suspect   electronic   parts. If Seller exercises its right to have an independent lab determine whether the suspect electronic parts are fraudulent/counterfeit, and the lab verifies the findings that the subject electronic parts are either suspect fraudulent/counterfeit or fraudulent/counterfeit, then Seller must issue an immediate refund of all monies paid by Globalwide Electronics Group LLC. If the suspect parts are determined to be suspect counterfeit, fraudulent or counterfeit by the independent test lab, then the Seller of those parts shall be required to pay for all charges issued by the testing lab. If, however, the suspect parts are determined not to be suspect counterfeit, fraudulent or counterfeit then the Globalwide Electronic Group’s LLC of those parts shall be required to pay all of the charges issued by the testing lab.


Globalwide Electronics Group LLC and Seller agree that whether or not Seller refunds all monies paid by Globalwide Electronics Group LLC, Globalwide Electronics Group LLC shall have the absolute right to reacquire possession of the subject electronic parts from the lab in order to prevent the subject electronic parts from being offered for sale through any channels of distribution. In the event that Seller pursues its Supplier, either in civil or criminal proceedings, Seller shall have the right upon request to receive and use a mutually agreeable sample quantity of the parts sold for the purpose of pursuing its remedies. Upon completion of testing, samples will be returned to Seller who will then return them to Globalwide Electronics Group LLC. Globalwide Electronics Group LLC and Seller agree that Globalwide Electronics Group LLC shall have the right to destroy the suspect electronic parts after expiration of the applicable statute of limitations under the appropriate Authority(ies) Having Jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the above, if Globalwide Electronics Group LLC and Seller agree in writing that the parts can be immediately destroyed, the parts will be destroyed per their agreement so long as all civil or criminal actions, in which the suspect electronic parts are the subject of the action, have been completed.
