1. SALES CONTRACT AND LIMITATIONS
The entire agreement between Buyer and Seller (herein called the "Sales Contract") with respect to the goods and/or services described in Seller's proposal or acknowledgment, as the case may be, shall consist of the terms appearing herein and in Seller's proposal or acknowledgment, such terms being additions to or modifications of Seller's Terms mutually agreed upon in writing by Seller and Buyer. Buyer's right to accept any offer from Seller, or acceptance by Seller of any offer from Buyer is made expressly conditional on Buyer's assent to any of Seller's Terms which are additional to and/or different from any terms contained in Buyer's request for proposal, Buyer's purchase order, or any other communication from Buyer to Seller. Acceptance by Buyer of any offer from Seller is also expressly limited to Seller's Terms, and Seller hereby objects to and shall not be bound by any additional, different or conflicting terms, whether printed or otherwise, in Buyer's request for proposal, Buyer's purchase order, or in any other communication from Buyer to Seller, it being understood that Seller's Terms shall prevail notwithstanding any such additional, different or conflicting terms. In the event of any conflict between the terms appearing herein and the terms appearing in Seller's proposal or acknowledgment, the terms appearing in the latter shall prevail. In the event of any conflict between the terms appearing in Seller's proposal and the terms appearing in Seller's acknowledgment, the latter shall prevail. No modification or waiver of Seller's Terms is valid, unless confirmed in writing by an authorized representative of Seller. The Sales Contract shall only be for the benefit of Buyer and Seller, and not for the benefit of any other person, except as otherwise provided herein with respect to Seller's subcontractors.
Buyer may not cancel this order, or any portion thereof, except upon written notice to Seller and upon payment to Seller of the cancellation charges specified below. Buyer acknowledges that such charges have been agreed upon, not as a penalty, but as a result of the difficulty of computing actual damages and the inconvenience and non-feasibility of Seller otherwise obtaining an adequate remedy. Such cancellation charges are as follows:
| Cancellation Notice
Received Prior to

Goods and/or Services)

Buyer may not cancel any order, or portion thereof, after shipment. Buyer may not reschedule or change any order, or portion thereof, without Seller's prior written consent.
3. PRICE AND PAYMENT
Terms of payment for sales in the United States are cash upon delivery or, at Seller's option, with approved credit, net 30 days from date of invoice or such other terms as are agreed between buyer and seller. Terms of payment for sales outside of the United States shall be irrevocable letter of credit confirmed through a US bank. A finance charge of 1 1/2% per month will be assessed on any amounts outstanding beyond our 30-day payment terms. If the Sales Contract is for more than one unit of goods, the goods may be shipped in a single lot, or in several lots, with the agreement of the buyer, and each such shipment shall be paid for separately. Pro rata payments shall become due as shipments are made. Seller may require, in advance of shipment, full or partial payment or payment guarantee, whenever, in its opinion, the financial condition of Buyer so warrants. In the event of Buyer's bankruptcy or insolvency, or in the event any proceeding is brought against Buyer, voluntarily or involuntarily, under the bankruptcy or insolvency laws, Seller may cancel any order then outstanding at any time during the period allowed for filing claims against the estate, and shall be paid the cancellation charges specified in Section 2. If Seller consents to a delay in delivery requested by Buyer, payment shall become due on the date when Seller is prepared to make shipment, and goods held for Buyer after such date shall be held at the risk and expense of Buyer.
Prices are exclusive of all federal, state, or local property, license privilege, sales, use, excise, and other taxes and government charges, which may now or hereafter be applicable to, measured by, or imposed upon or with respect to the transaction, the goods and/or services furnished under the Sales Contract, their sale, value or use, and Buyer shall be responsible for all such taxes and charges in addition to the price of the goods and/or services and shall reimburse Seller when such tax is payable by Seller, unless evidence of tax exemption acceptable to the taxing authorities is furnished by Buyer.
Promises of delivery from stock are subject to prior sale. Delivery dates are not guaranteed, but are estimated on the basis of immediate receipt by Seller of all information and approvals to be furnished by Buyer and the absence of delays which are excused under Section 10 (Delays). Seller shall endeavor in good faith to meet estimated delivery dates.
