Terms of Purchase

1. Terms and AcceptanceThis purchase order (“Order”) becomes a contract (1) when signed acknowledgement is received by the Buyer, or (2) when shipment according to schedule of all or any portion of the goods covered by this Order shall be made, or (3) when written approval is given Seller by Buyer of the price and delivery schedule of the goods as stated by Seller if Seller’s written acknowledgements of this Order contains either (a) a different price or delivery schedule or a different type of item, or (b) no price or no delivery schedule for the item or items to which Buyer’s approval applies. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, it is a condition of this Order that any provisions printed or otherwise contained in any acknowledgment, acceptance, or confirmation hereof, different from, inconsistent with or in addition to the terms and conditions herein stated, and any alteration in this Order, are hereby objected to, shall have no force or effect, and that the Seller by such acknowledgment, acceptance, or confirmation thereby agrees that any such terms or provisions therein or any such alterations in this Order shall not constitute any part of this contract of purchase and sale. This Order contains the entire agreement of the parties, and shall supersede and cancel all prior or contemporaneous agreements or communications between the parties, except as specifically shown on the Order. No conditions in the acceptance by Seller and no subsequent agreements, course of performance, usage of trade or communications in any way modifying or altering the provisions of this Order or increasing charges under this Order shall be binding unless made in writing and signed by Buyer’s authorized representative. Failure of Buyer to enforce any of its rights hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or any other rights hereunder.

2. Inspection Warranty Goods delivered (whether paid for or not) are subject to inspection, testing, and approval by Buyer before acceptance. The Seller expressly warrants that all goods, articles, materials, and work will conform to the applicable drawings, specifications, samples, or other descriptions given in all respects, and that the goods delivered hereunder will be of good quality, material and workmanship, merchantable and free from defects. This warranty shall survive any inspection, delivery, acceptance, cancellation, termination or payment by the Buyer of the goods or services. Buyer hereby objects to any term proposed as an addition to the contract which excludes any implied warranty of merchantability, and implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose, or any limitation on incidental or consequential damages.

3. Risk of Loss The risk of loss from any casualty to the goods, regardless of the cause shall be on Seller until the goods have been accepted by the Buyer.

Nonconforming Goods All goods not fully up to the standards and not in compliance with the specifications or warranties hereof, or shipped contrary to instructions, or in excess of the quantities herein provided or substituted for goods described, or not shipped in container conforming to Buyer’s specifications, (or, in the absence of such specifications, in recognized standard containers), or

allegedly violating any statute, ordinance, or administrative order, rule, or repacking, storing, and reshipping any goods rejected as aforesaid are nonconforming goods. The remedies herein afforded to Buyer shall not be exclusive, but Buyer may hold Seller liable for any and all damages arising from any breach or default herein set forth.

5. Price Prices recorded in this Order are not subject to increase. No additional amounts shall be chargeable to Buyer because of taxes or excises, presently or hereafter levied on Seller. If Seller’s quoted prices for the goods covered by this Order are reduced (whether in the form of a price reduction, close-out, rebate, allowances, or additional discounts offered to anyone) at the time of any shipment, Seller agrees that the price to Buyer for such goods will be reduced accordingly, and that Buyer will be billed at such reduced prices. If the price is not recorded on the face of this Order, price shall be that of last previous order given by Buyer to Seller, subject to the provisions of this paragraph. If price includes taxes or excises, and if such taxes or excises or any part thereof are hereafter refunded to Seller, Seller shall immediately pay Buyer the amount of such refund. Seller certifies that the prices herein are not higher than prices being charged to other organizations purchasing identical goods in smaller quantities at this particular time and do not discriminate against Buyer.

Time is therefore of the essence and if goods are not delivered within the time specified hereon, Buyer may at Seller’s expense and risk reject such goods and cancel this Order. The acceptance of late or defective deliveries shall not be deemed a waiver by Buyer of its right to cancel this Order, or to refuse to accept further deliveries, to recover damages caused by the untimely deliveries or to assert other remedies provided by equity or law. Seller shall notify Buyer in writing immediately of any actual or potential delay to the performance of this Order, and provide a proposed revised schedule.

12. Delegation or Assignment Seller shall not delegate or assign any duties or claims under this Order without Buyer’s prior written consent. Any such delegation or assignment attempted without the previous written consent of the Buyer shall effect, at the option of the Buyer, a cancellation of all the Buyer’s obligations hereunder. All claims for moneys due or to become due from Buyer shall be subject to deduction by Buyer, for any setoff or counterclaim arising out of this Order or any other of Buyer’s orders with Seller, whether such setoff or counterclaim arose before or after any such assignment or delegation by Seller.

13. Modification Buyer shall have the right to make, from time to time, and without notice to any sureties or assignees, changes as to packing, testing, destination, specifications, designs, and delivery schedule.
