All goods not fully up to standard and not in compliance with the applicable specifications, or shipped contrary to instructions, or in excess of the quantities herein provided, or substituted for goods described, or not shipped in containers conforming to Purchaser specifications (or, in the absence of such specifications, in recognized standard containers), or allegedly violating any statute, ordinance or administrative order, rule, or regulation may be rejected by Purchaser and returned or held at the Seller’s expense and risk. Purchaser may charge to Seller all expense of inspecting, unpacking, examining, repacking, storing, and reshipping any goods rejected as aforesaid. The remedies hereinabove afforded to Purchaser shall not be exclusive, but Purchaser may hold Seller liable for any and all damages arising from any breach or default hereinabove set forth.

Shipper retains responsibility and liability for any non-delivered and/or Goods arriving to Purchaser damaged.
The Supplier shall sell to Purchaser and Purchaser shall purchase from Supplier the Goods and/or related items at the price set forth on the front page of this Purchase Order; and the payment for the Goods and/or related items shall be in accordance with the provisions set forth on the front page.

Title or risk of loss of each shipment of Goods and/or related items shall pass to Purchaser upon delivery. Supplier shall provide Purchaser with such appropriate documents of title as Purchaser may reasonably require, such as a Bill of Lading.
Supplier warrants and represents to Purchaser that the Goods and/or related items shall be free from defects in design, material and workmanship. The failure of any Goods and/or related items shall be referenced herein as a “Defect.” Supplier shall, at Supplier’s expense, correct any defect in any of the Goods and/or related items by replacing such Goods and/or related items, provided that Supplier may repair any Defect upon mutual agreement of Supplier and Purchaser if such repair will not adversely affect the appearance, function, or performance of such Goods and/or related items. Notwithstanding the above option, Purchaser may return to Supplier for exchange, credit, or repair, any of the Goods or related items having a Defect. Purchaser will ship the warranted Goods and/or related items for replacement or repair to Supplier, and provided it is determined that such Goods and/or related items contained a defect, Supplier shall ship the replacement or repaired Goods and/or related items at Supplier’s expense and risk.

All goods and services will be subject to inspection and test by Purchaser at all times and places, including the period of manufacture and in any event prior to final acceptance. Final acceptance or rejection of the goods or services will be made as promptly as practical after delivery except as otherwise provided in this Order, but failure to inspect and accept or reject goods or services or failure to detect defects by inspection, will neither relieve Seller from responsibility for such goods or services as are not in accordance with this Order nor impose liabilities on Purchaser for them. Purchaser's payment for the goods shall not constitute its acceptance of the goods.
Except as otherwise specifically provided in this agreement, in the event of any breach of the provisions of these terms and conditions resulting from Supplier’s performance or failure to perform hereunder, Supplier shall be liable to Purchaser for any actual proven damages incurred by Purchaser.
Seller shall indemnify and hold Purchaser and its affiliates harmless and, on Purchaser’s request, shall defend each of them from and against any or all third party claims, demands, litigation, or proceedings of whatever kind, whether based upon negligence, breach of express or implied warranty, product liability, strict liability, infringement of intellectual property rights, as a result of any alleged violation of United States, state or international laws associated with export or shipping of items or product compliance, or any other theory, and from and against all direct, indirect, special, exemplary, incidental or consequential damages of every kind whatsoever, arising out of, by reason of, or in any way connected with the goods and/or services, the design, manner of preparation, manufacture, construction, completion, or delivery or non-delivery of any goods and/or services by Seller, any breach by Seller of any of its obligations hereunder, or any other act, omission or negligence of Seller or any of Seller's employees, workers, servants, agents, subcontractors, or suppliers, including but not limited to claims associated with bodily injury, property damage, and any and all other third party claims by parties alleging injuries of any type arising out of, by reason of, or in any way connected with the goods and/or services. Seller shall, on request, pay or reimburse Purchaser or any other party entitled to indemnification hereunder for all costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees, as incurred by Purchaser or such other party in connection with any such claim, demand, litigation, proceeding, loss, or damage. In addition, for infringement claims, Seller will, at its own expense and at Purchaser’s option, either procure for Purchaser the right to continue using the allegedly infringing item, replace it with a non-infringing equivalent, or remove it and refund the purchase price and the transportation and installation costs thereof.
The terms and conditions of this Agreement shall apply to any Purchase Order placed hereunder and the applicable provisions shall survive any asserted expiration or termination of this Agreement.

Seller will keep confidential any technical, process, economic, or other information derived from drawings, specifications and other data furnished by Purchaser in connection with this Order (in whatever form or format) and will not divulge, export, or use, directly or indirectly, such information for the benefit of any other party without obtaining Purchaser's prior written consent.
