2. Order Acceptance
This purchase order is an offer by Buyer for the purchase of the specified Products from the Seller in accordance with these terms and conditions. Seller acknowledges acceptance of this order and all its terms and conditions unless Seller raises exceptions within fifteen (15) days after the date of this order. If exceptions are raised, Buyer and Seller shall negotiate mutually acceptable terms and conditions. If this order results from Seller having acknowledged Buyer’s request for quotation (proposal), then this order is considered Buyer’s acceptance of Seller’s offer subject exclusively to the terms contained herein. If Buyer did not issue a request for quotation (proposal), this order is Buyer’s offer to Seller to remain outstanding for fifteen (15) days from date of receipt and when accepted by acknowledgment or by performance in whole or in part, shall become a binding contract subject exclusively to the terms contained herein. Any reference in this order to Seller’s or its suppliers’ quotation (proposal) by number or title does not imply acceptance of any terms and conditions in such quotation. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, any terms and conditions in such quotation which are in addition to, or inconsistent with, the terms and conditions contained in this order, are excluded. Failure to return the acknowledgment copy promptly (if attached hereto) may result in delay in payment of the invoice against this order. Acknowledgment must be executed by an officer or other duly authorized employee of Seller.
3. Complete Agreement
This order, including any supplementary schedules, exhibits, riders, and attachments annexed hereto by Buyer, contains the complete and entire agreement between the parties with respect to the sale of Products by Seller to Buyer and supersedes any other communications, representations, warranties, understandings or agreements, of any kind, oral or written, concerning this order. These terms and conditions shall prevail over any terms and conditions contained in any other documentation, and expressly exclude any of Seller’s general terms and conditions of sale or any other document issued by Seller in connection with the sale of Products hereunder.
Buyer may at any time change delivery schedules, drawings, quantities, designs or specifications by written order and may change the method of shipment, packing and place or time of delivery by any means of communication. If such change affects cost or delivery schedules of this order, an equitable adjustment shall be made, provided Seller makes a written claim within fifteen (15) days of Buyer’s notification, but this clause shall not excuse Seller from proceeding immediately with this order as changed. Where Seller includes the cost of material made obsolete or excess as a result of a change, Buyer shall have the right to prescribe the disposition of such property. Any changes proposed by Seller or Seller’s subcontractors, to materials, processes, or software, which may affect the form, fit, or function of the Products, and/or the reliability, safety, regulatory compliance, serviceability, performance and warranty of the Products, and/or any approved Product quality plans, must be submitted by Seller prior to implementation in the form of a written change request for Buyer’s approval. For clarification purposes, applicable Product changes may be inclusive of but not limited to, changes of sources of material, components and parts, changes in manufacturing processes, test procedures, manufacturing locations and relocation or replacement of any equipment utilized in manufacturing the Products. Products affected by such changes may not be delivered to Buyer until Seller has received written approval for the changes from Buyer. The change notice must include the affected part number or software revision (if applicable), proposed date of implementation, serial number verification/validation records, effectiveness of the assembly that is changed, reason for the change, specific details of the change and, if available, supporting data that demonstrates that Product reliability will not be impacted negatively. In addition, Buyer has the right to request Product samples for evaluation prior to approval by Buyer of such Product changes.

Seller shall not advertise, publish, or otherwise make any public announcements, denials or confirmations concerning any aspect of this order, without prior written consent of Buyer, which may be withheld by Buyer in its sole discretion. If Seller fails to observe this provision, Buyer reserves the right to cancel this order without obligation.
6. Termination for Convenience
Buyer may terminate work under this order in whole or in part at any time by prior written notice.

Buyer may also, without limiting its other remedies, direct expedited routing and any increased costs due to expedited routing shall be paid by Seller. Unless otherwise specified herein, no deliveries shall be made in advance of Buyer’s delivery schedule. Seller’s delay or default caused by a subcontractor’s delay or default shall be excusable only if it arose out of causes beyond the control of both Seller and subcontractor, without the fault or negligence of either of them, and the supplies or services to be furnished were not obtainable from other sources to permit Seller to meet the required delivery schedule. Buyer’s representatives shall, during Seller’s normal business hours, have access to Seller’s plant for the purpose of assuring delivery in accordance with the delivery schedule.
Subject to inspection and acceptance, Buyer will be liable for payment only for quantities ordered and delivered. Overshipments shall be held at Seller’s risk and expense for a reasonable time awaiting shipping instructions. Shipping charges for returns shall be at Seller’s expense.
11. Title and Risk of Loss
Title and risk of loss shall pass to Buyer upon delivery, except that Seller shall retain the risk of loss for Products which Buyer does not accept or rejects.
Seller expressly warrants that all Products delivered hereunder will: conform strictly to Seller’s published specifications for the Products, and/or designs, specifications, drawings, performance standards, samples or other requirements furnished or specified by Buyer; will be of new material, free from defects in material and workmanship; be merchantable; and, be fit and sufficient for the purposes intended. Such warranties shall survive any inspection, delivery, acceptance, or payment by Buyer of, or for, the Products, for a period of twelve (12) months following date of delivery.
Buyer’s remedies under these warranties shall include at Seller’s election (a) return and full refund of the purchase price paid by Buyer for such Products, (b) repair by Seller or persons designated by Seller and accepted by Buyer of any Products found to be defective in violation of these warranties, without charge, or (c) replacement of Products with new products that conform to the above requirements.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Buyer may, in its sole discretion, charge Seller an administrative handling fee equal to the greater of (x) $500.00 or (y) an amount not to exceed 15% of the invoiced price of a non- conforming Product if (i) Buyer, at any time, discovers that Seller provided to Buyer a non-conforming Product or (ii) Seller’s Product(s) are rejected at Buyer’s facility.
13. Inspection and Testing
Seller shall verify that all Products meet all specifications before shipment. Seller upon request shall give Buyer reasonable notice of such verifications and Buyer may be represented thereat. Seller upon request shall supply Buyer with a certified true copy of Seller’s test results. All Products will be subject to Buyer’s inspection and test prior to acceptance. Payment, in whole or part, will not constitute acceptance. Buyer may reject any non-conforming Product and return it to Seller at Seller’s risk and expense at the full invoice price plus all applicable inspection, test, boxing, packing, crating, transportation and other related costs. Alternatively, Buyer may, with Seller’s express permission and agreement to reimburse Buyer therefor, rework all or part of Seller’s non-conforming Product. At Buyer’s option, Seller agrees to negotiate in good faith regarding an equitable reduction in the price of non-conforming material which Buyer agrees to accept in a use-as-is condition. Buyer, or its representative, may inspect any Seller’s location engaged in the performance of this order and may inspect or test Products to be delivered hereunder during manufacture, processing or storage. If Buyer, or a representative of Buyer, makes any inspection or test on the premises of Seller, Seller shall provide all reasonable facilities and assistance for the safety and convenience of such personnel. If as a result of any testing by Buyer or Seller, Buyer finds that the Products do not comply with the order or are unlikely to comply upon completion, Buyer shall inform Seller in writing and Seller shall take action to ensure compliance. Neither payment nor acceptance shall relieve Seller of liability for failure to conform to order requirements.
14. Title to Specifications and Confidentiality
Buyer shall at all times have title to all designs, specifications, drawings, performance standards, samples or other requirements furnished or specified by Buyer to Seller, and Seller shall, upon Buyer’s request, or upon completion of the work, promptly return all such information and copies thereof to Buyer. Seller shall not disclose, in any manner or to any other party, including any subcontractor, any information whatsoever supplied by Buyer, without prior written consent from Buyer. Seller agrees to maintain all such information under secure conditions using at least the same level of security as Seller uses in protecting Seller’s own information, but not less than a reasonable degree of care. Seller agrees that any Products manufactured using Buyer’s information will be sold only to Buyer or Buyer’s designee. Any information Seller discloses to Buyer incident to this order shall not, unless specifically agreed to in writing by Buyer, be considered confidential or proprietary information, and shall be acquired free from any restrictions.
