1. GENERAL: In this Agreement, the words “you”, “your”, “Applicant” and “Customer” refer, as
appropriate, to the person or entity for which an Account is established under this Agreement and
any previous account or Agreement with the entities in this section. This Agreement shall be deemed
to include and be an addition to and modification to any account, payment, or license agreements
with AutoZone. Any personal guarantor of this Agreement and any authorized user of the Account,
including any person who signs an Application for an Account and/or the person or entity on whose
behalf such Application is signed, shall be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
“Account” means any Account, as applicable, established in accordance with this Agreement. “We”,
“us”, “our”, “Creditor” and “AutoZone” refer to the subsidiary of AutoZone, Inc. with which you are
doing business (including, but not limited to AutoZone Parts, Inc., AutoZone Stores, Inc., AutoZone
West, Inc., AutoZone Northeast, Inc., AutoZone Texas, L.P., AutoZone Operations, Inc., AutoZone
Mississippi, Inc., AutoZone Puerto Rico, Inc., AutoZone.com, Inc. and ALLDATA LLC) and any
assignee to which this Agreement is assigned. Your signature on any sales memorandum, purchase
order, sales slip, sales invoice or other or different form (“Sales Memorandum”), any application,
personal guaranty, account setup form, acceptance certificate, or any other document in connection
with this Account, or your continued use of any software constitutes your signature on this
Agreement, as amended from time to time.
2. ACCOUNT FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES ONLY: This Account is established solely for
business, commercial or organizational purposes on behalf of your business. You warrant,
represent and agree that you will not use this Account (or allow this Account to be used) for
personal, family, household or agricultural (collectively, “consumer”) purposes.
You
understand and agree that this Agreement is not intended to be subject to state and federal laws
governing consumer transactions. You also understand and agree that we will be unable to
determine whether any given transaction conforms to this Section 2. You agree that a breach by
you of the provisions of this Section 2 will not affect our right to (i) enforce your promise to pay all
amounts owed under this Agreement regardless of the purpose for which any particular transaction
is in fact made or (ii) use any remedy legally available to us, even if that remedy would not have
been available had the Account been established as a consumer account.
3. PROMISE TO PAY: You jointly and severally promise to pay all amounts owed under this
Agreement and for all purchases charged to your Account, including any software license fees, late
charges and other charges that may be applicable from time to time. You understand and agree
that we will be unable to determine whether any particular transaction on your Account was in fact
authorized by you and/or made for your benefit, and you specifically agree that you will pay for all
transactions made on your Account, whether or not such transactions were in fact duly authorized
by you or made for your benefit. Your obligations under this Agreement are absolute and
unconditional.
4. LATE PAYMENT CHARGE: You agree that your default in paying the amount owing on your
Account will damage us, insofar as we will incur expenses associated with having to monitor and
collect your Account. We may assess a “Late Charge” on the portion of the amount remaining
unpaid, at a rate permitted by applicable law. This amount will be added to your Account balance
while your default continues, except that no Late Charges will be imposed in the period during
which your default is cured by repayment of all amounts owing on your Account.
5. DORMANT ACCOUNT FEE: An account will be considered dormant if it has no activity in a six
month period. We may charge a fee of $10.00 per month to offset the costs of maintaining the
account.
6. PAYMENTS; DISPUTED AMOUNTS: Payments, in good funds, are due at the address
(“Payment Address”) and by the payment due date (“Payment Due Date”) shown on your billing
statement. All payments mailed or delivered to us should be to the address shown on your billing
statement or by using the envelope enclosed with your billing statement. Payments received after
2:00 p.m. on any banking day will be posted to your Account on the next banking day. To the
extent permitted by applicable law, if we accept any late payment or partial payment, whether
or not marked as payment in full, that acceptance will not affect the due date of any other
payment due under this Agreement, nor will it act as an extension of time or a waiver or
satisfaction of any payment or amount then remaining unpaid. It will also not modify any of
our rights under this Agreement. All written communications concerning disputed amounts,
including any check or other payment instrument that (i) indicates that the payment
constitutes “payment in full” of the amount owed, (ii) is tendered with other conditions or
limitations or (iii) is otherwise tendered as full satisfaction of a disputed amount, must be
mailed or delivered to us at the address for billing inquiries shown on your billing statement
or invoice, not your Payment Address. You agree that we may send your billing statements or
invoices to you at your principal place of business/billing address as shown on our records from
time to time.
7. INVESTIGATION AND REPORTING; INACCURATE INFORMATION: Your credit and the
personal credit of any personal guarantor will be used in making credit decisions. You authorize
us to investigate your creditworthiness by obtaining credit reports and making other inquiries as
we deem appropriate. Any individual that has signed an application for commercial credit with us
on your behalf and any personal guarantor of your Account authorizes us to investigate his/her
personal credit history by obtaining consumer credit reports and by making direct inquiries of
businesses where his/her accounts are maintained. You also agree that we may report your
performance under this Agreement to credit bureaus and others who may lawfully receive such
information. Any individual that has signed an application for commercial credit with us on your
behalf and any personal guarantor of your Account agrees that in the event that your Account is
not paid as agreed, we may report his/her liability for and the status of your Account to credit
bureaus and others who may lawfully receive such information. If you, any individual that has
signed an application for commercial credit with us on your behalf, or any personal guarantor of
your Account believe that we have information about any of you that is inaccurate, or that we have
reported or may report credit reporting agency information about any of you that is inaccurate,
please notify us of the specific information that any of you believe is inaccurate by writing to us at
the address on your statement.
8. LIMITING OR TERMINATING YOUR CREDIT: We may advise you of a “Credit Limit” on your
Account, which we may raise, lower, or cancel at any time, and you promise not to allow the
outstanding balance of your Account to exceed this Credit Limit. We have the right at any time to
limit or terminate the use of your Account, or to terminate this Agreement as it relates to future
transactions, without giving you advance notice. You may terminate this Agreement at any time,
upon 60 days prior advance written notice to us, with respect to future use of the Account. If you
or we terminate this Agreement, you agree to pay the outstanding balance of the Account
according to the applicable terms of this Agreement and the applicable license agreements or
Sales Memoranda and that all of our rights will continue in full force until all of your obligations are
fully satisfied. You may revoke the Account privileges of any individual authorized to use the
Account by notifying us in writing.
9. UNAUTHORIZED USE: You may be liable for any unauthorized use of your Account until you
notify us in writing at AutoZone Commercial Credit, P.O. Box 10, Memphis, TN 38101, or by calling
Credit Services at (866) 208-3385, of any loss, theft or unauthorized use. We may request
reasonable cooperation from you, including written confirmation of any such instance if you notify
us orally. You agree that unauthorized use does not include use by a person whom you have
authorized to use the Account and you will be liable for all such use. Subject to the requirements
of applicable law, we may cancel your Account if you fail to notify us immediately of any loss, theft
or, unauthorized use.
10. TAX EXEMPT TRANSACTIONS: We will honor tax exempt transactions with proper
documentation. You must provide us with a copy of the appropriate tax-exempt documentation for
your state. If sales taxes appear on your billing statement or invoice, take your billing statement
or invoice to your AutoZone store for an adjustment.
11. CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT: We may add a new term or change any term of this
Agreement at any time, including, for example, if applicable, adding late charges or other charges.
We will give you notice of any change in accordance with applicable law. Unless prohibited by
applicable law, any new or changed terms may at our option be applied to any balance existing in
the Account at the time of the change, as well as to any subsequent transactions. No change to
any term of this Agreement will affect your obligation or the obligation of any personal guarantor of
your Account to pay, in full, all amounts owing under this Agreement or otherwise perform the
terms and conditions of this Agreement or any related guaranty.
12. CHANGE OF ADDRESS AND GOVERNING LAW: You agree that initially your principal place
of business/billing address is the address to which we sent this Agreement or, if this Agreement
was originally attached to an Application, the address specified in that Application. You agree to
notify us promptly if you change this address. Until we receive notice of a new address, we may
continue to send billing statements or invoices and other correspondence to the address shown on
our records. You agree that the terms of this Agreement and any disputes arising in
connection herewith will be governed and construed under the laws of the State of
Tennessee (excluding its choice of law rules), which is the location of AutoZone’s principal
place of business, and applicable federal law.
13. PRODUCT WARRANTIES. AutoZone does not provide any warranties other than those
provided by its suppliers and shall not be held liable for any expressed or implied defective
product claims.
14. SECURITY INTEREST: Except in CT, NC, and NY, you grant us a purchase money security
interest in all goods charged to your Account until each item purchased is paid for. If you default in
your payment obligation, we may repossess and sell any or all of this collateral and exercise any
other rights afforded to us under applicable law. We may file financing statements and/or
materialmen’s or mechanic’s liens against the goods pursuant to applicable law.
15. SEVERABILITY: If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under
applicable law, that provision will be considered totally ineffective to that extent, but the remaining
provisions of this Agreement will not be affected.
16. DEFAULT; COLLECTION COSTS; ACCELERATION: You will be in default under this
Agreement if any of the following events occur: (i) we do not receive any payment due under this
Agreement, or any related guaranty, when the payment is due, (ii) you violate any other
obligations, representations or warranties under this Agreement or make any false disclosures in
any application or guaranty executed in connection with this Agreement, (iii) you change your form
of business organization or there is a change in control of your business, including without
limitation a change in voting ownership of 15% or more, (iv) you are insolvent, declare bankruptcy
or similar proceedings are commenced by or against you, or (v) you die, dissolve or cease to do
business, or (vi) any information you provide is incorrect, incomplete or misleading. If you are in
default, we may exercise any or all rights and remedies available under law, equity or as provided
herein. In addition to the full amount owed and any allowable court costs, if your Account is
referred to an attorney who is not our salaried employee to collect the amount you owe, you agree
to pay our reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs of collection to the fullest extent permitted
by applicable law.
17. EXTENSIONS AND RELEASES: We may agree to extend the due date of any payment due
under this Agreement for any length of time or release any other person or entity liable under this
Agreement without notifying you of this extension or release and without releasing you from any of
your obligations under this Agreement or any related guaranty.
18. TELEPHONE MONITORING: We treat every customer call confidentially. To ensure that you
receive accurate and courteous customer service, on occasion your call may be monitored by other
employees.
19. ASSIGNMENT: You may not assign any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement
without our prior written permission. We are not required to give you our written permission.
Without your consent or prior notice to you, we may sell or assign, in whole or in part, any or all of
our rights and interests in and under this Agreement and any related guaranties or related
documentation.
20. SPECIAL PAYMENT PLANS: From time to time we may offer you special promotional terms
(“Special Payment Plans”) that, subject to specified conditions, reduce any applicable charges or
fees under this Agreement or otherwise modify the terms of this Agreement with respect to certain
qualifying purchases. If you use your Account in accordance with the terms of a Special Payment
Plan, you agree (i) to the terms of the Special Payment Plan and (ii) that no formal amendment of
this Agreement will be necessary. The standard provisions of this Agreement apply to any Special
Payment Plan, unless otherwise provided under the Special Payment Plan offering, and will
continue to apply to any and all transactions that are not subject to a Special Payment Plan.
21. ENTIRE AGREEMENT: This is the entire agreement between you and us and no oral changes
can be made. You acknowledge that no promises have been made to you other than those
incorporated into the written terms of this Agreement. A fully executed copy or reproduction of this
Agreement sent to you by us constitutes an original of the Agreement for evidentiary purposes.

ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION HEREAFTER BROUGHT AND RELATED IN
ANY WAY TO THIS AGREEMENT AND YOUR ACCOUNT, UNDER ANY THEORY OF LAW OR
