Purchase Order Terms And Conditions

1) Seller’s electronic acceptance or acknowledgement of this Purchase Order, or the commencement of
work on the goods or services or the shipment thereof in accordance with this Purchase Order, whichever
occurs first, shall be deemed acceptance of this Purchase Order and the terms herein, and an agreement
shall be formed thereby. Upon such acceptance and agreement, this Purchase Order shall be limited to
acceptance of the express terms contained herein and any additional non-conflicting order details specified
in writing by Buyer (“Specifications”). If additional or different terms are proposed by Seller, such
additional terms shall constitute a counteroffer which shall not be effective unless accepted in writing by
the Buyer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if Seller has an executed Master
Service Agreement (MSA) or executed terms and conditions, said MSA or terms and conditions are
attached to this Purchase Order, are incorporated herein by reference, and shall govern and control the terms
of the work, goods or services provided hereunder.

2) Buyer reserves the right to terminate this Purchase Order or any part thereof for its sole convenience. In
the event of such termination, Seller shall immediately stop all work pursuant to such Purchase Order and
shall immediately cause any of its suppliers or subcontractors to cease such work. Seller shall be paid a
reasonable termination fee consisting of a percentage of the order price reflecting the percentage of the
work performed prior to the notice of termination, plus actual direct costs resulting from termination. Seller
shall not be paid for any work done after receipt of the notice of termination nor for any costs incurred by
Seller’s supplier or subcontractors which Seller could have reasonably avoided. Buyer may also terminate
this Purchase Order or any part thereof for cause, including but not limited to any default by failure of Seller
to comply with any of the material terms and conditions of such Purchase Order, late deliveries, deliveries
of products that are defective or do not conform to this Purchase Order, or failure to provide Buyer
reasonable assurance of future performance upon request. In the event of termination for cause, Buyer shall
not be liable to Seller for any amount or for damages of any type, and Seller shall be liable to Buyer for any
and all damages sustained by Buyer as a direct or indirect result of the default by Seller, or the termination
for cause.

3) Shipments must equal the exact amounts noted in any Specifications. Goods shipped in excess of

advertise or publish the fact that Buyer has contracted to purchase goods from Seller.

5) Time is of the essence in the performance of this Purchase Order. In the event of Seller’s failure to deliver
items or render services as and when specified, Buyer reserves the right to cancel such Purchase Order or
any part thereof for cause, without liability to Seller and without prejudice to any of its other rights or
remedies. Seller agrees that Buyer may return part or all of any late shipment and/or may purchase substitute
items or other services elsewhere and may charge the Seller with any loss or expense sustained as a result
of such failure to timely deliver. Any provisions herein for delivery of articles or the rendering of service
by installments shall not be construed as making the obligations of Seller severable.

6) In addition to all other express warranties and implied warranties, Seller represents and warrants that all
goods and services delivered or provided pursuant to this Purchase Order will (a) fully conform in all
respects with the Specifications, (b) be merchantable and free from any defects, latent or patent, in materials,

or subcontractors, negligent or otherwise, or any breach of Seller’s representations or warranties or
of any other term or condition of this Purchase Order.
All representations, warranties, indemnities and
other undertakings of Seller and all claims, rights and remedies of Buyer shall survive delivery,
performance, inspection, test and acceptance, use and payment. Seller agrees to support its indemnity
obligations set forth above by furnishing insurance coverage as set forth in Section 8 hereof. Any insurance

fabrication, assembly, startup services, repairs and technical support, on Buyer’s or Buyer’s customer’s
premises, Seller agrees that such work will be governed by the MSA between Seller and Buyer if one is in
effect, or, if no MSA has been executed by Seller and Buyer, services performed on Buyer’s or Buyer’s
customer’s premises shall be governed by the terms and conditions in Buyer’s standard form Master

riots, civil commotions, laws, regulations, orders of applicable government or authority, arrest or restraint
by princes, rulers or people and any other occurrence beyond the reasonable control of the party affected,
provided that such party could not reasonably have foreseen such occurrence and could not reasonably have

description. Any action resulting from any breach on the part of Buyer as to the goods or services delivered
hereunder must be commenced within one year after the cause of the action has accrued.

17) Buyer’s failure to insist on performance of any of the terms or conditions herein or to exercise any right
or privilege or Buyer’s waiver of any breach hereunder shall not thereafter waive any other terms,
conditions, or privileges, whether of the same or similar type. No waiver, either direct or by operation of
law or in equity, of strict compliance with and performance of any term or condition of this Purchase Order,
or of any breach of it on the part of Seller, shall be held or deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach

applicable delivery dates will be borne by Seller. Seller shall include one copy of the packing list with each
shipment, and, on date of shipment, shall mail one copy of the packing list to Buyer and one copy to the
destination. Buyer’s count will be accepted as final and conclusive on all shipments not accompanied by a
packing list. If immediate shipment cannot be made upon receipt of this Purchase Order by Seller, Seller
shall so advise Buyer of the shipping date. Seller shall comply with all other specified delivery instructions
of Buyer.

19) Payment for the goods delivered hereunder shall not constitute acceptance thereof. Buyer shall have
the right to inspect such goods and to reject any or all of said goods that are, in Buyer’s sole judgment,
defective or nonconforming or do not meet or are not furnished in accordance with the Specifications or
Seller’s warranty (express or implied). Goods rejected and goods supplied in excess of quantities called for
herein may be returned to Seller at its expense and, in addition to Buyer’s other rights, Buyer may charge
Seller all expenses of unpacking, examining, repacking and reshipping such goods. In the event Buyer
receives goods whose defect or nonconformity is not apparent on examination, Buyer reserves the right to
require replacement as well as payment of direct actual damages. Nothing contained in any Purchase Order
shall relieve in any way the Seller from the obligations of testing, inspection and quality control. Risk of
loss and title to goods delivered hereunder shall pass from Seller to Buyer at the F.O.B. point specified in
the Specifications, or as otherwise specified by Buyer. Buyer reserves the right to have an employee and/or

and services covered by this Purchase Order. Such visits will be during Seller’s normal working hours and
subject to any reasonable and normal procedures of the Seller.

proceeding that may be brought against Buyer or its agents, customers or other vendors for alleged patent
infringement or for any alleged unfair competition resulting from similarity in design, trademark or
appearance of goods or services furnished hereunder, and Seller shall indemnify Buyer, its agents and
customers against any and all expenses, losses, royalties, profits and damages, including court costs and
attorneys’ fees, resulting from any such suit, course of action, claim or proceeding, including settlement.
Buyer, at its option, may be represented by and actively participate through its own counsel in any such suit
or proceeding.
