1. Acceptance Agreement – Supplier’s commencement of work on the goods or services subject to this purchase order or shipment of any such goods, whichever occurs first, shall be deemed an effective mode of acceptance of this purchase order. Any acceptance of this purchase order is limited to acceptance of the express terms contained on the face and reverse hereof. Any proposal for additional or different terms or any attempt by Supplier to vary, in any degree, any of the terms of this offer in Supplier’s acceptance is hereby objected to and rejected, but such proposals shall not operate as a rejection of this offer unless such variances are in the terms of the description, quantity, price or delivery schedule of the goods or services, but shall be deemed a material alteration of such offer, and said offer shall be deemed accepted by Supplier without said additional or different terms. If this purchase order shall be deemed an acceptance of a prior offer by Supplier, such acceptance is limited to the express terms contained on the face and on the back hereof. Any additional or different terms contained in the terms of Supplier’s prior offer shall be deemed material and such additional or different terms are hereby objected to; provided, however, that this purchase order shall not operate as a rejection of that prior offer unless such variance is in the term of the description, quantity, price, or delivery schedule of the goods or services.
2. Termination for Convenience – Buyer reserves the right to terminate this order or any part hereof for its sole convenience. In the event of such termination, Supplier shall immediately stop all work hereunder, and shall immediately cause its suppliers or subcontractors to cease such work. Buyer will reimburse Supplier for reasonable expenses (which shall not include indirect costs or lost profits) resulting directly from any such termination for convenience. Supplier shall not be paid for any work done after receipt of the notice of termination, nor for any costs incurred by Supplier’s suppliers or subcontractors which Supplier could reasonably have avoided. Supplier shall not unreasonably anticipate the requirements of this order.
3. Termination for Cause – Buyer may also terminate this order or any part hereof for cause in the event of any default by the Supplier, any late deliveries, deliveries of goods or services which are defective or which do not conform to this order, or in the event that Supplier fails to comply with any of the terms and conditions of this agreement or fails to provide Buyer, upon request, with adequate assurance of future performance. In the event of termination for cause, Buyer shall not be liable to Supplier for any amount, and Supplier shall be liable to Buyer for any and all damages sustained by reason of the circumstances which gave rise to the termination for cause. If it should be determined that Buyer has improperly terminated this contract for cause, such termination shall be deemed a termination for convenience.
4. Changes – Buyer shall have the right at any time to make changes in drawings, designs, specifications, materials, packaging, time and place of delivery, and method of transportation. If any such changes cause an increase or decrease in the cost, or the time required for the performance, an equitable adjustment shall be made and this agreement shall be modified in writing accordingly. Supplier agrees to accept any such changes subject to this paragraph.
5. Warranty – Supplier expressly warrants that all goods or services furnished under this agreement shall conform in every respect to any specifications, drawings, samples or descriptions provided by Buyer or upon which this order is based and shall be new, of the highest quality, and free from defects in material or workmanship.

Supplier warrants that the goods or services shall conform to any and all applicable technical and safety provisions and comply in all respects with any and all applicable industry, federal, state and local laws, regulations, directives and standards including, but not limited to, those concerning safety, labor, health, environmental and fire. Supplier further warrants that all goods or services furnished hereunder will be merchantable, and will be safe and appropriate for the purpose for which goods or services of that kind are normally used. If Supplier knows or has reason to know the particular purpose for which Buyer intends to use the goods or services, Supplier warrants that such goods or services will be fit for such particular purpose. Supplier warrants that goods or services furnished will conform in all respects to samples. Inspection, testing, acceptance or use of the goods or services furnished hereunder shall not affect the Supplier’s obligation under this warranty, and such warranty shall survive inspection, testing, acceptance and use. Supplier’s warranty shall run to Buyer, its successors, assigns and customers, and users of products sold by Buyer. Supplier agrees to replace or correct defects of any goods or services not conforming to the foregoing warranty promptly, without expense to Buyer, when notified of such nonconformity by Buyer, provided Buyer elects to provide Supplier with the opportunity to do so. In the event of failure of Supplier to correct defects and/or replace nonconforming goods or services promptly, Buyer, after reasonable notice to Supplier, may make such corrections or replace such goods and services and charge Supplier for the cost incurred by Buyer in doing so.
6. Price Warranty – Supplier warrants that the prices for the goods or services sold to Buyer hereunder are not less favorable than those currently extended to any other customer of Supplier for the same or similar articles in similar quantities. In the event Supplier reduces its price for such articles during the term of this order, Supplier agrees to reduce the prices hereof correspondingly. Supplier warrants that prices shown on this purchase order shall be complete, and no additional charges of any type shall be added without Buyer’s express written consent. Such additional charges include, but are not limited to, shipping, packaging, labeling, custom duties, taxes, storage, insurance, boxing, and crating. In the event that no price is stated in the order, the price shall be deemed to be the price last supplied to Buyer or the current market price, whichever is lower.

Supplier shall be solely responsible for filing all appropriate tax forms and paying all applicable tax, duty, export preparation charges and export documentation charges resulting from the purchase of the goods or services under this agreement.
9. Inspection/Testing – Payment for the goods or services delivered hereunder shall not constitute acceptance thereof. Buyer shall have the right to inspect such goods or services and to reject any or all of said goods or services which are in Buyer’s good faith judgment defective or nonconforming. Goods rejected and goods supplied in excess of quantities called for herein may be returned to Supplier at its expense and, in addition to Buyer’s other rights, Buyer may charge Supplier all expenses of unpacking, examining, repacking and reshipping such goods. In the event Buyer receives goods or services whose defects or nonconformity is not apparent on examination, Buyer reserves the right to require replacement, as well as payment of damages. Nothing contained in this purchase order shall relieve in any way the Supplier from the obligation of testing, inspection and quality control.

The Supplier will not, without the prior written consent of the Buyer, advertise, publicly announce or provide to any other person information relating to the existence or details of the Order or use the Buyer’s name in any format for any promotion, publicity, marketing or advertising purpose.
