3. Terms and Conditions Exclusive. THIS DOCUMENT CONSTITUTES THE COMPLETE AND FINAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN COMPANY AND PURCHASER WITH RESPECT TO THE GOODS. THIS DOCUMENT SHALL NOT BE AMENDED, MODIFIED OR SUPERSEDED, WHETHER BY COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, PRACTICE OR OTHERWISE, EXCEPT BY A WRITING THAT IS SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED OFFICER OF COMPANY, REGARDLESS OF ANY OTHER TERMS AND/OR CONDITIONS THAT MAY APPEAR ON PURCHASER'S DOCUMENTS. ALL SUCH PURCHASER DOCUMENTS ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY OBJECTED TO AND REJECTED BY COMPANY WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE TO PURCHASER. THIS DOCUMENT IS EXPRESSLY CONDITIONED UPON PURCHASER'S AGREEMENT TO ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED HEREIN. PURCHASER'S ACCEPTANCE OF ANY PERFORMANCE BY COMPANY SHALL BE DEEMED AS PURCHASER'S ACCEPTANCE OF ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS PROVIDED BY THIS DOCUMENT.
4. Price. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Company and Purchaser, the prices for the Goods shall be those as set forth in Company's pricing policies that are in effect at the time of tender of delivery of such Goods to Purchaser. In the event Purchaser desires to change its order in advance of shipment by Company (and if and when expressly permitted to do so in writing by Company), Company may therefore also elect to adjust such prices accordingly and at its sole discretion. Purchaser acknowledges that such prices do not include applicable fees, taxes, excises, duties, transportation or other costs or expenses that Company may be required to collect and/or remit and, therefore, shall remain the exclusive liability of Purchaser. In addition, any and all permits, licenses, authorizations and/or other requirements that are necessary for Purchaser to accept and take delivery of the Goods shall be obtained in advance by Purchaser at its sole cost and expense. IF THIS DOCUMENT IS PROVIDED AS A QUOTATION, THE PRICES AS QUOTED (IF ANY) SHALL BECOME FINAL ONLY IF FULLY ACCEPTED (ABSENT ANY CONTRARY TERMS OR CONDITIONS) BY PURCHASER WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF SUCH QUOTATION AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS DOCUMENT.
5. Payment, Collection, Security Interest. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Company and Purchaser, payment terms for the Goods are 1% 10, net 30 days. These payment terms are subject to change in the exercise of Company's sole discretion and without notice to Purchaser. In the event that Purchaser does not remit timely payment in accordance with such payment terms, Company reserves the right to charge Purchaser an additional 1.5% per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, on any unpaid balance until such balance is paid in full. In addition, in the event that Purchaser fails to make timely payment in accordance with such payment terms, Company is hereby authorized by Purchaser to use any alternative collection measures permitted by law in order to obtain payment from Purchaser of any past due payment amount. Purchaser further agrees that any and all costs, expenses and/or fees (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees) that are incurred by Company in an attempt to collect such past due payment amounts shall be added to such past due payment amount and shall be then due and owing by Purchaser to Company. Company hereby reserves, and Purchaser hereby expressly grants to Company, a security interest in and to the Goods in order to secure Purchaser's payment of the purchase price and any other costs, expenses and/or fees owed by Purchaser to Company, and Purchaser agrees that Company may (but is not obligated to) take appropriate actions to evidence and perfect such interest and Purchaser hereby agrees that it shall not oppose such actions by Company.
6. Delivery and Freight. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Company and Purchaser, the Goods shall be delivered to Purchaser F.O.B. Company's plant. Any delivery date is approximate and is intended as an estimate only. Actual delivery date may vary. Title to the Goods shall immediately pass to Purchaser upon Company's tender of delivery of the Goods. If the Goods are held by Company subject to delivery instructions from Purchaser, Company may elect to invoice the Goods to Purchaser and, therefore, Purchaser agrees to make payment in accordance with this Document. The Goods so invoiced and held at any location by Company shall remain at Purchaser's sole risk and expense and Company may charge Purchaser for (but is not obligated to carry) insurance, storage, shelving and all other costs or expenses associated therewith. Purchaser shall accept and pay for partial delivery of the Goods, or any portion thereof, at Company's prices and in accordance with this Document. When Purchaser has declared or manifested an intention not to accept delivery of the Goods in accordance with this Document, no tender on the part of Company shall be necessary; however, Company may, at its sole option, give notice to Purchaser that Company is ready and willing to deliver and such notice shall constitute a valid tender of delivery.
7. Force Majeure. Company shall not be liable for any failure to perform by reason of strikes, riots, insurrections, fires, floods, unavoidable accidents, wars, terrorism, delay in transportation, acts of God or any other causes beyond its reasonable control. In connection with the foregoing, Purchaser acknowledges that delivery of the Goods is contingent upon Company's ability to obtain supplies, raw materials, production capacity and other goods and/or services through its regular and usual sources and, thus, if for any reason beyond Company's reasonable control, Company is not able to meet anticipated delivery date(s) or any other performance, Purchaser acknowledges that Company shall not be liable therefor and Company may postpone the delivery date(s) under this Document for such period of time which is reasonable in the judgment of Company under the circumstances.
8. Disclaimer of All Warranties and/or Guarantees. By placing an order or accepting delivery, Purchaser hereby acknowledges that the Goods are sold on an "AS IS" and "WITH ALL FAULTS" basis only. NO WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR PURPOSES, OR WARRANTY OR GUARANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IS MADE REGARDING PERFORMANCE, SAFETY, SUITABILITY, STABILITY, USE, COMPLIANCE WITH ANY LAW OR REGULATION OR OTHERWISE AS TO SUCH GOODS. IN NO EVENT WILL COMPANY BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, LOSS OF PROFITS OR SALES, LOSS OF REVENUES, LOSS OF OPPORTUNITIES OR ANY OTHER FORM OR TYPE OF DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, WHETHER TO PROPERTY OR BODILY INJURY OR LIFE OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH THE ORDER, SALE, PURCHASE, TRANSFER, DELIVERY, USE OR MISUSE OF THE GOODS (EVEN IF COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OR IS OTHERWISE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE). This Document is not intended to be all-inclusive as to the manner and conditions of use, handling, storage, disposal, application, combination, reactive properties and/or any other factors that may involve other or additional legal, physical, environmental, chemical, safety, performance or other conditions, and Company expressly disavows and assumes no liability whatsoever for the use of or reliance upon this information. By ordering or taking delivery of the Product, Purchaser understands and agrees that all safe handling and appropriate use of the Product remains the sole and exclusive responsibility of Purchaser. NO WAIVER, ALTERATION, ADDITION OR MODIFICATION OF THE FOREGOING SHALL BE VALID OR ENFORCEABLE UNLESS MADE IN A WRITING, OTHER THAN THIS DOCUMENT, THAT IS FULLY SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED OFFICER OF COMPANY AND DATED AFTER THE DATE OF THIS DOCUMENT.
9. Inspections and Limited Remedy. Each delivery of the Goods will be promptly inspected by Purchaser for any damage or defect. PURCHASER WILL NOTIFY COMPANY OF ALL CLAIMED DAMAGE OR DEFECT WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF DELIVERY OF THE GOODS. If Purchaser fails to promptly inspect or notify Company as provided herein, Purchaser shall be deemed to have fully accepted the Goods and to have waived any claim for damage, defect or refund. If Purchaser promptly inspects the Goods upon delivery and notifies Company as to Purchaser's claim within the period as provided herein that the Goods are subject to damage or defect, Company shall review Purchaser's claim and, if Company determines such claim to be valid, Purchaser and Company shall mutually agree as to the method and timing of curing such damage or defect. Any limited remedy of Purchaser against Company as provided herein shall be barred unless adequate notice is given in accordance with this Section 9. PURCHASER'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST COMPANY, REGARDLESS OF THE NATURE OF ANY ASSOCIATED CLAIM OR THEORY OF RECOVERY OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE GOODS OR CREDIT FOR THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE GOODS, AT THE EXCLUSIVE OPTION OF COMPANY, AS LONG AS PURCHASER COMPLIES WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THIS SECTION 9.
10. Intellectual Property Infringement Indemnification. Purchaser shall fully and unconditionally defend, indemnify and hold Company as well as its owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, representatives, successors and assigns harmless from and against any and all claims (whether actual or contingent or otherwise), demands, actions, liabilities, damages, and/or costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, attorneys' fees) (collectively a "Claim") arising out of or in connection with any alleged infringement of any United States or other foreign jurisdiction patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret or other intellectual property right (collectively "Intellectual Property") associated with the sale, distribution or delivery of the Goods by Company to Purchaser or the use of the Goods by Purchaser as long as: (a) Company gives Purchaser reasonable notice of such Claim as well as an opportunity to defend and/or settle such Claim as Purchaser may see fit (with the advice and consent of Company); and (b) in connection with such Claim, Company provides Purchaser with Company's reasonable assistance in connection with such defense and/or settlement. Company reserves the right to cancel Purchaser's order for the Goods, without any liability whatsoever, if or when Company determines, in the exercise of its sole discretion, that the manufacture, sale, distribution or use of the Goods would infringe any such Intellectual Property.
11. General Indemnity. If any of Purchaser's owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, representatives, successors, and/or assigns are on, in or about Company's premises or other property under Company's control, or are working with or using property owned by or under the control of Company, Purchaser is and shall remain fully and unconditionally responsible for all acts and/or omissions and agrees to indemnify and hold Company and its owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, representatives, successors, and/or assigns full and unconditionally harmless from and against any and all liability of any nature for any Claims with respect to property, bodily injury or death to persons arising out of Company's acts or omissions including, without limitation: (a) any Claims arising from Company's alleged failure to comply with applicable statutes, regulations and laws governing security, maintenance and safety; (b) any Claims against Company by or on behalf of any of them for injury or otherwise; and/or (c) any Claims against Company resulting from Purchaser's failure to maintain workers' compensation or other public or private insurance with respect to any of them. The foregoing indemnity will also extend to, without limitation, Claims asserted under the workers' compensation laws of the State of Ohio or any other jurisdiction and any consequential increased premium or contribution costs of or for securing workers' compensation insurance, whether public or private, and/or any consequential costs of or for the direct payment of any such workers' compensation benefits. Purchaser hereby expressly waives any statutory and/or constitutional immunity to which, but for this waiver, it might be entitled as an employer in compliance with the State of Ohio workers' compensation laws, or under any other employee benefit statute or similar laws of any jurisdiction, and hereby expressly waives any statutory right of subrogation set forth in Ohio Revised Code section 4123.931 or successor provision.

Purchaser acknowledges that it has received and is familiar with Company's and any other manufacturer's manuals, warnings, guidance, labeling, product data, literature, instructions and other information related to or concerning the Goods and shall adequately and periodically instruct its employees, agents, assigns, customers and others who may come into contact with the Goods as to the safe and appropriate use, handling, storage and transportation of the Goods.
13. Permissible Variations. Company reserves the right, without notice to Purchaser, to make modifications, additions, alterations or other changes in or to the composition of the Goods which, in Company's opinion, do not have appreciable impact to the general characteristics or properties of the Goods or are within applicable industry standards.

Company's right to cancel, rescind or terminate hereunder may be exercised by Company in its sole discretion and without liability.
