Any such terms provided by Seller shall be void and the terms of this Agreement and Buyer’s Purchase Order shall constitute the complete and exclusive statement of the terms and conditions between the parties and may hereafter be modified only by written instrument executed by the authorized representatives of both parties. Neither silence nor any other conduct, including acceptance by Buyer of any products ordered, shall constitute an assent to any additional, different or conflicting terms proposed by Seller or waiver of this provision requiring written assent.
  3. CHANGES – Buyer shall have the right to make changes in Buyer’s specifications or instructions for work, quantities, methods of shipments and packaging, and schedules and places of delivery as to any product covered by Buyer’s Purchase Order and Seller agrees to immediately comply with all such change notices. Such change notices will be in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Buyer. If such changes result in a decrease or increase in Seller’s cost or in the time for performance, an adjustment in the price or time for performance will be made, based upon the actual difference in expense or time necessary for performance of the work covered by a Purchase Order, in writing by the parties if Seller presents to Buyer an itemized statement of claim therefore against Buyer within twenty (20) days after receipt by Seller of notice of such change. If Seller does not present such a claim within the time period specified above, Seller shall be conclusively deemed to have waived all claims against Buyer with respect thereto.
  4. CANCELLATION – Buyer reserves the right to cancel or suspend all or, from time to time, any undelivered or unexecuted portion of a Purchase Order (a) for cause if Seller fails to make any delivery or to perform any work as scheduled or if Seller breaches any of the terms of this Agreement or the Purchase Order or (b) without cause upon written confirmation thereof to Seller. Buyer’s entire liability and Seller’s exclusive remedy for any change and/or cancellation or suspension of all or any part of a Purchase Order shall be limited to Buyer being obligated to reimburse Seller for Seller’s expenses incurred prior to notice of cancellation and resulting directly or indirectly from any such cancellation or suspension made without cause; provided, however, that such amount shall in no event exceed the applicable pro rata portion of the Purchase Order price.

The cash discount period, if any, shall be computed as commencing with the receipt of the invoice or all of the product ordered, whichever is later. Delay in receiving, errors in invoices or shipments, and necessary time for inspection and testing of product shall not result in Buyer losing cash discount privileges.

  10. INSPECTION AND TESTING – Acceptance of product by Buyer will be subject to inspection and testing by Buyer after physical receipt, installation, or assembly of product. Payment for product delivered hereunder shall not constitute acceptance thereof. Buyer shall have the right to reject any or all product which, in Buyer’s judgment, is defective or fails in any respect to conform to the agreement between the parties; including specifications, drawings, samples, or other descriptions furnished by Buyer. Product so rejected may be returned to Seller at Seller’s expense and, in addition to Buyer’s other rights, Buyer may charge Seller with all expenses of unpacking, examining, repacking, and reshipping such product. In the event Buyer receives product whose defects or nonconformities are not apparent on reasonable examination, Buyer reserves the right to require the replacement of such product at no cost to Buyer upon detection of such defects or nonconformities. The performance, quality, quantities, dimensions, weight, capacity, conformity, and characteristics last established by Buyer during inspection or testing by Buyer or during any subsequent inspection or testing by Buyer will be deemed accurate unless otherwise demonstrated to the satisfaction of Buyer.

  11. DRAWINGS AND SPECIFICATION REVIEW – If Buyer or Buyer’s representatives review drawings, specifications, or other data developed by Seller in connection with this Agreement and make suggestions or comments or approve such documents and data, such action is only an expression of opinion by Buyer and shall not serve to relieve Seller of any responsibility for the reliability, quality, rate of output, cost, delivery, performance, or any other requirements of Buyer with respect to such product.
  12. WARRANTIES – Whether or not Seller is a merchant of the product provided by it, Seller warrants that all product provided by it (a) shall be of good quality and workmanship and free from all defects, latent or patent, in design, materials and workmanship, (b) shall conform to all specifications, drawings, samples, and other descriptions furnished, specified, or adopted by Buyer, (c) shall be merchantable and suitable, sufficient, and fit for their intended and particular purpose, and (d) shall be free of all liens and encumbrances and any claim of title of any third party.

Buyer’s inspection and/or acceptance of and/or payment for product shall not constitute a waiver by it of any warranties and such warranties shall survive inspection, testing, acceptance, and use, either by Buyer or Buyer’s customers. Buyer’s approval of any sample or acceptance of any product shall not relieve Seller from responsibility to deliver product conforming to specifications, drawings, and descriptions. This warranty shall run to Buyer, its successors and assigns, and its customers and other users of its products. Seller agrees to replace or correct defects of any product not conforming to the foregoing warranty promptly, without expense to Buyer or Buyer’s customers, when notified of such nonconformity by Buyer.
