Electrosonic, Inc. Purchase Order Terms & Conditions

  1. OFFER AND ACCEPTANCE--- These Terms and Conditions of Purchase (“Terms and Conditions”), together with any purchase order (“Purchase Orders”) provided by Electrosonic, Inc. (“Buyer”) to any provider of products or services (“Seller”) constitute an offer to purchase by Buyer and are not an acceptance of any offer or terms which may have been submitted by Seller. Seller may accept this offer to purchase and shall be bound to supply the applicable products or services in accordance with these Terms and Conditions either by execution of an acknowledgment copy of the order, acceptable electronic transmission, delivery of the products to Buyer or by any other statement, act or course of conduct which constitutes acceptance under applicable law. Upon acceptance, this order shall constitute the entire agreement (the “Contract”) between the parties (except for any additional warranties given by Seller), superseding any and all previous or contemporaneous communications and negotiations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if this Contract is entered into in connection with a Subcontractor Agreement, if (a) any provision of this Contract conflicts with a provision of the Subcontractor Agreement, the Subcontractor Agreement shall govern; (b) if any provision of this Contract conflicts with a provision of the Prime Contract, the Prime Contract shall govern (unless such provision is also covered by the Subcontractor Agreement, in which case the Subcontractor Agreement governs).

  2. CHANGES--- No change in modification, variation or revision of these Terms and Conditions or any Purchase Order, including the quantities and prices contained therein, as applicable, shall be valid unless in writing and signed by Buyer. If, in Seller’s good faith opinion, changes requested by Buyer would affect delivery or the price to be paid by Buyer, Seller shall notify Buyer immediately and negotiate an adjustment, which adjustment shall be at Buyer’s discretion to accept or reject. Buyer’s technical personnel may exchange information with Seller’s personnel concerning the material or services to be furnished under Purchase Orders, but such communications shall not vest Seller with authority to change the materials or services of any Purchase Order, nor shall any change by Seller be binding upon Buyer unless incorporated as a change in writing signed by Buyer.

  3. PRICES--- Unless otherwise indicated in the Contract, the price stated on the applicable purchase order (the “Purchase Price”) shall include sales, use, excise and similar taxes and any shipping, delivery and insurance costs. The Purchase Price shall be considered a firm, fixed price for the duration of the applicable Purchase Order. Buyer shall be subject to no charges or expenses in excess of the Purchase Price.

  5. INSPECTION--- All materials, products and services are subject to testing and approval by Buyer, either before, during or after manufacture, or after delivery, by inspectors designated by the Buyer or by the government at the Buyer’s discretion. The exercise of this right of inspection and test, however, shall in no way relieve the Seller of its obligation to furnish all articles or materials in strict accordance with these Terms and Conditions and the applicable Purchase Orders. If inspection and test is made on the premises of Seller or its supplier, the Seller shall furnish without additional charge all reasonable facilities and assistance for the safety and convenience of the inspectors in the performance of their duties. All inspections and tests shall be performed in such a manner as not to delay the work unduly. Buyer may reject any products or services which do not conform to the Warranties provided in Section 7 hereof.

Exercise of these remedies shall not be exclusive of any other remedies provided in law or equity or which are otherwise available to Buyer.

EVENTS OF DEFAULT--- Seller shall be deemed to be in default hereunder if it violates any of the terms hereof or of any Purchase Order, if it fails timely to perform any of its obligations, or if it performs or fails to perform any other act, whether pursuant to agreement or otherwise, which gives Buyer reasonable grounds to feel insecure with respect to Seller's future performance under a Purchase Order.

  24. NON-WAIVER OF RIGHTS AND SEVERABILITY--- The failure of Buyer to insist upon strict performance of any of the terms and conditions in any Purchase Order or to exercise any rights or remedies, shall not be construed as a waiver of its rights to assert any of same or to rely on any such terms or conditions at any time thereafter.
