Any terms and conditions contained in purchase orders or similar forms of Buyer which add to, amend, qualify or are different from the terms of this Order are hereby rejected and shall be null and void and of no force and effect, regardless of whether such terms and conditions precede or follow this Order. It is intended by the Seller and the Buyer that this Order shall constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between the parties with respect to the Materials referenced herein and may only be amended by written agreement executed by the authorized officers of Seller and Buyer.
  3. Quantity. The quantity of Materials ordered herein shall conform with those requested by the Buyer in the purchase order unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the Seller and the Buyer, or otherwise accepted by the Buyer in accordance with Section 2 hereof.
  4. Termination. No Order shall be changed or terminated without the prior written consent of Seller. Termination of all or part of any Order shall be subject to a charge from Seller, which shall include all purchases, tooling, set‐up, mobilization and other costs, expenses and commitments incurred by Seller up to the date of termination, plus payment for the work performed up to the date of termination, plus Seller’s profit on the total Order.

Unless otherwise specified on the face of the Order, delivery shall be EXW Seller’s facility.  Title and risk of loss or damage to any Materials sold by the Buyer to the Seller shall pass to the Buyer from the Seller upon delivery to the common carrier. If any delivery is delayed on account of Force Majeure or other causes beyond the reasonable control of Seller, the Seller shall notify the Buyer within a reasonable timeframe of when Seller becomes aware of such delays. Buyer shall be responsible for ad valorem and other taxes on the Materials after delivery to the common carrier.   Notwithstanding the foregoing, title to all Materials rented by the Seller to the Buyer shall remain with the Seller at all times; however, the risk of loss to all Materials rented by the Seller to the Buyer shall remain with the Buyer until such time as Buyer returns the rented Materials to the Seller in the same condition as when rented by the Buyer, ordinary wear and tear excluded. 
  6. Quality and Inspection. All Materials furnished by Seller shall conform to the specifications on this Order. In no event, shall Seller be responsible for defects in any materials furnished by the Buyer or materials purchased from a third‐party supplier at the request of Buyer. Such material will be provided at Buyer's sole and exclusive risk. Buyer further agrees that all deliveries shall be deemed accepted unless Buyer notifies Seller of any nonconforming Materials within thirty (30) days after the date of delivery; it being agreed that time shall be of the essence in Buyer's rejection of any Materials and that Buyer is encouraged to promptly test and inspect the same. In all cases where a rejection is timely made by Buyer, Seller shall be given the opportunity to remedy the matter as provided herein. Whenever any Materials are timely rejected, Buyer shall furnish Seller with all inspection and test results and return the rejected Materials to Seller, upon Seller's request.
  7. Specifications. Any specifications described in the Order which are internally adopted, established or used by Seller shall be exclusively based upon the methods of testing and inspection employed by Seller in its normal course of business, notwithstanding any reference to desired results of other standards, it being agreed that all Seller specifications indicated in this Order shall control and prevail over all others which may be similar thereto; regardless of whether the same may be expressly stated in this Order.
  8. Price and Taxes. The prices for all Materials are indicated in this Order, but may be exclusive of federal, state, and local sales, use, excise, and other taxes (including any and all VAT) which Seller is required by law to collect. Such taxes, if any, shall be separately stated in Seller's invoice and will be paid by Buyer unless an exemption is available and proper documentation of such exemption is provided to Seller by Buyer.  Buyer shall defend, indemnify, and hold the Seller harmless from and against any and all claims, losses and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) against the Seller with respect to the sale of the Materials hereunder if Seller relies on an exemption from such tax at the request of the Buyer.
  9. Payment. Unless otherwise specified on the Order, payment shall be net thirty (30) days and Seller shall be entitled to invoice upon delivery to the common carrier. Seller reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to require security for payment prior to delivery.

  10. Cartage, Packaging & Transportation. Unless specifically provided in this Order to the contrary, Seller shall not pay for any boxing, cartage, duties, insurance, freight, or other ancillary fees in shipping any Materials to be delivered hereunder, all of which shall be for the account of and paid by Buyer.
  11. Changes. Subject to the other conditions contained herein, the Buyer may at any time request changes in this Order, but such changes shall not be effective unless and until approved and confirmed in writing by Seller. In the event a change is requested which affects the delivery or price of the Materials, then Seller shall notify the Buyer of such changes. In the event a change results in an increase in price, such increase automatically shall be added to the price unless Buyer rejects the same within two (2) days following receipt of Seller's notice.
  12. Confidentiality. The terms of this Order and all commercial and technical information, including but not limited to pricing, supplied by Seller shall be kept confidential by Buyer, and shall not be disclosed, published or disseminated to third parties.  This provision shall survive the termination and fulfillment of the Order.  Buyer acknowledges that the confidentiality of the Seller’s information is vital to the operations of the Seller, and Buyer agrees that irreparable damage for which monetary damages would not be adequate may occur in the event that Buyer breaches this provision or fails to perform its obligations herein.  Thus, the Buyer acknowledges that the Seller shall be entitled to injunctive relief, without the necessity of posting bond, to prevent breaches of the confidentiality provisions hereof.
  13. Patents. Seller shall indemnify and hold Buyer harmless from and against any liability, loss, damage, judgment, or award resulting from infringement of a valid US patent by Materials which are manufactured, fabricated, or supplied by Seller for this Order.

  14. Liability Disclaimer. Buyer acknowledges that the environment in which it uses the Materials and the manner and operations in which it uses the Materials are subject to Buyer’s sole discretion and control.
