IF SELLER HAS BEEN ISSUED A SCHEDULE AGREEMENT, SELLER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT SUCH AGREEMENT IS NON-BINDING UNTIL SELLER RECEIVES A FIRM RELEASE PURCHASE ORDER FROM BUYER IN CONNECTION THEREWITH.
     
  2. Changes. Buyer may at any time prior to shipment of products by Seller, by written change order, change the design (including materials, drawings, and specifications), processing, method of packing and shipping, and the place of delivery, of the products and services. If the change affects cost or timing, Buyer shall adjust the purchase price and delivery schedules equitably. Seller shall not make any change in the design, processing, method of packing or shipping, or place of delivery of the products and services without the written consent of Buyer.
     
  3. Shipping Instructions and Releases. See face of Buyer's purchase order. Seller must follow the specific instructions of the nominated forwarder of Buyer personnel when booking transportation equipment for the delivery of Buyer’s order.

Buyer from time to time and with reasonable notice may change or temporarily suspend shipping schedules specified in Buyer's purchase order or shipment releases.
     
  4. Delivery. Delivery must be made within the time and at the specific quantity stated on the face of Buyer's purchase order or shipment release. If delivery is not made as requested, Buyer reserves the right, at its option, to purchase elsewhere and charge Seller with any loss incurred as a result thereof (including any incidental and consequential damages), and to cancel the order, and to have the goods shipped air freight at Seller’s cost. Acceptance by Buyer of a late delivery of either the whole or a part of the order shall not constitute a waiver of Buyer’s claim for any damage that the late delivery may have caused.
     
  5. Price. If price is not stated in Buyer's purchase order or in any other agreement between Buyer and Seller, it is agreed that Seller’s price shall be the lowest prevailing market price as at the time of order. Price is to cover purchased goods or services in their entirety and, where purchase is by weight, net weight of material.

Any of the goods found at any time to be damaged (including goods damaged due to unsatisfactory packaging by Seller) or defective or not in conformity with Buyer's purchase order may be corrected by Buyer at Seller’s expense or rejected and returned at Seller’s expense. If Buyer elects to return such goods to Seller at any time, Buyer shall be entitled to a credit equal to the purchase price of the goods or services, plus 15% of the purchase price of the goods or services. However, Buyer’s inspection or failure to inspect shall in no way relieve Seller of responsibility hereunder. (b) To the fullest extent permitted by law, Seller agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Buyer from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, judgments, awards, costs, fees, and expenses, including all incidental and consequential damages (including, but not limited to, attorneys' fees and costs of investigation) incurred by Buyer resulting from or relating to any claim, notice, allegation, complaint, demand, action, lawsuit, investigation, proceeding, or other process or procedure of any kind (including, but not limited to, Buyer’s own internal investigations, proceedings, processes or procedures, and those based in whole or part on patent, trademark or copyright infringement, negligence, product liability, quality defects, willful misconduct, breach of express or implied warranties, strict liability, deceptive or unfair trade practices, advertising liability, governmental statute or regulation, and the like) and caused by, arising out of or in any way resulting from the goods, materials, products, or services provided, shipped, furnished or delivered or services performed by Seller to, for, or on behalf of Buyer.

All tools, gauges, patterns, dies, and other material and equipment furnished to Seller by Buyer shall remain the property of Buyer. It shall be plainly identified by Seller as the property of Buyer and shall be safely stored and not used except in filling Buyer’s orders. The property, while in Seller’s custody, shall be maintained in good condition at Seller’s expense and shall be kept insured by Seller at Seller’s expense in an amount equal to the replacement cost, with loss payable to Buyer.

  10. Patent Guarantee. Seller warrants that the sale or use of the goods or materials covered by Buyer's purchase order shall not infringe or contribute to the infringement of any patents, utility model registrations, design registrations, trademarks, or copyrights, or embody an unauthorized use of trade secrets, either in the U.S.A. or any patent territory or country. Seller agrees to indemnify and hold Buyer harmless from and against all claims, liabilities, costs, damages, or expenses (including attorneys’ fees) of any kind, involving any such actual or alleged infringement or unauthorized use, excluding, however, any infringement or use solely relating to concepts, designs, or ideas furnished in writing by Buyer and which, as between Buyer and Seller, originated with Buyer. Seller agrees that it will, upon reasonable notice and request from Buyer, assume the defense of the Buyer, its successors, assigns, and customers of its goods, against any such aforementioned suit, claim or demand.

  11. Cancellation Provisions. Either party shall have the right to cancel Buyer's purchase order in the event that the other party files or has filed against it any petition under the bankruptcy laws (if not vacated within 60 days of filing), the other party becomes insolvent or makes an assignment or arrangement for the benefit of creditors. In addition to all of the other rights which Buyer may have to cancel Buyer's purchase order, Buyer shall have the further right, without assigning any reason therefor, to terminate any work hereunder, in whole or in part, at any time. Upon receipt of a notice of termination, Seller shall, unless the notice otherwise directs, immediately discontinue all work on the order. Buyer will not be liable to Seller for any costs for completed articles, articles in process, or materials acquired or contracted for, if the costs were incurred more than ten (10) days prior to the delivery date stated on the face of the order. If Buyer cancels prior to the delivery date stated on the face of Buyer's purchase order and if the parties cannot agree within a reasonable time upon the amount of fair compensation to the Seller for the termination, Buyer shall pay (a) the contract price for all articles completed in accordance with Buyer's purchase order and not previously paid for, (b) a fair and proper portion of the contract price for articles in process, and (c) Seller’s costs for all materials acquired or contracted for by Seller for the purpose of fulfilling Buyer's purchase order that Seller is unable to cancel or return. If Buyer so desires, cancellation charges shall be subject to Buyer’s audit. With Buyer’s prior consent, Seller may sell or retain at an agreed price any completed articles, materials, work in process, or other things, payments for which, in whole or in part, by Buyer is provided for above, and Seller shall credit or pay Buyer the amounts so agreed or received. Any goods, materials, work in process, or other things not so retained or sold shall be transferred and delivered by Seller in accordance with Buyer’s directions. Appropriate adjustment shall be made for delivery costs or cost savings. The provisions of this paragraph shall not limit or affect the right of Buyer to terminate Buyer's purchase order upon default of Seller. In no event shall Buyer be liable for any incidental or consequential damages, including without limitation, loss of profits or business, or damages arising out of Buyer’s cancellation of orders or the termination of business relations with Buyer, even if Buyer has been advised by Seller of the possibility of such damages.
     
  12. Non-Exclusivity; Waivers and Assignment. Each of the remedies reserved to Buyer herein shall be cumulative and in addition to all other or further remedies provided herein or by law. Any waiver of strict compliance with the terms of Buyer's purchase order shall not be a waiver of Buyer’s right to insist upon strict compliance with the terms of Buyer's purchase order thereafter. Seller may not assign any of its rights or delegate any of its duties hereunder without Buyer’s prior written consent.
     
  13. Insurance. Seller shall procure and maintain comprehensive commercial general liability insurance (including without limitation coverage for products liability, advertising liability and the contractual assumption of liability under this agreement) consistent with the specific requirements set forth on Schedule A hereto. Each policy required by this paragraph shall name Buyer as an Additional Insured for all such coverages, shall require the insurer to provide notice in writing to Buyer at least 30 days prior to any cancellation or non-renewal, and shall provide that such insurance shall be primary insurance without any right of contribution from any other insurance carried or maintained by Buyer. The above referenced insurance shall be purchased from Insurance carriers with an A.M. Best rating or local equivalent of at least “A”. Seller shall annually, and more frequently upon request of Buyer, furnish to Buyer certificates of insurance evidencing Seller's compliance with the provisions of this Section 13. The obligations of Seller under this Section 13 are independent and do not in any way limit or satisfy the obligations of Seller to Buyer under any other provision of this agreement.
