"Nonconforming Products" means only those delivered Products, or quantity thereof, which are different than identified in the Shipping Confirmation and Packing List.4.2 If Seller is notified in accordance with Section 4.1 hereof and if Seller verifies that the Products in question are, indeed, Nonconforming, then Seller shall, in its sole discretion,(a) replace such Nonconforming Products with conforming Products, or (b) credit the price for such Nonconforming Products or, in the event of partial delivery, adjust the invoice to reflect the actual quantity delivered. Seller reserves the right to inspect Products to verify that such Products are indeed Non conforming, and Seller may exercise this right prior to offering any remedy provided for in this Section. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the remedies set forth in this Section 4 are the exclusive remedies for delivery of Nonconforming Products.4.3 Any returns, if authorized, shall be handled in accordance with Section 8 below.

5.1 Purchaser shall purchase Products and Services from Seller at the prices offered by Seller, including prices in a valid quotation or prices on a published price list valid as of date of the applicable Order Confirmation. If there is a price increase before Products are shipped, then the Agreement shall be construed as if the increased prices were originally inserted therein, and Purchaser shall be invoiced by Seller in accordance therewith.

Purchaser shall reimburse Seller for all costs incurred in collecting any late payments, including court and other costs and attorneys' fees—to include paralegal fees, expert witness fees, and like charges incurred by Seller’s legal counsel. In addition to all other remedies available under these Terms or at law, Seller may, without notice to Purchaser, delay or postpone delivery of Products and/or performance of Services and may, at its option, change the terms of payment with respect to any undelivered Products and/or unperformed Services. For purposes hereof, the Prime Rate is the prime rate published in the “Money Rates” section of The Wall Street Journal on the business day last preceding the date when Purchaser’s payment first became delinquent (the “Index”). If for any reason The Wall Street Journal ceases publication or no longer publishes a prime rate in its “Money Rates” section, then the Index shall be the rate announced by a national bank chosen by Seller as its prime rate (on the business day last preceding the date when Purchaser’s payment first became delinquent), and such rate may not necessarily be the lowest rate such national bank charges to its customers. Late charge amounts collected in excess of the maximum lawful amount(if any) shall be applied to the underlying indebtedness of Purchaser to Seller, and any remainder shall be refunded to Purchaser.
5.5 Purchaser shall not withhold payment of any amounts due and payable hereunder because of any set-off of any claim or dispute with Seller, and any such attempted set-off shall be subject to the late charge obligations set forth in Section 5.4 hereof.

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.  Seller shall not, without Buyer's prior written consent, manufacture or procure materials in advance of Seller's reasonable lead-time.

5.2      Remedy. If Conforming Items are not furnished or if Conforming Items cease to qualify as Conforming Items at any time during the Warranty Period, Seller shall repair or replace such non-Conforming Items, such repair or replacement to occur within the period specified in the Order or within twenty-one (21) days from return by Buyer, which ever period is shorter(the “Repair Period”). Seller’s failure timely to repair or replace and redeliver such non-Conforming Items (rendering such Items Conforming Items) within the Repair Period, shall entitle Buyer, at its election and (in addition to any other rights or remedies it may have at law or in equity), to have such non-Conforming Items corrected at Seller’s expense.  In addition to the costs of repairing or replacing such non-Conforming Items, Seller agrees that, notwithstanding the provisions of any warranties, expressed or otherwise, negotiated with respect to Items purchased from Seller by Buyer or Buyer's customers, Seller shall reimburse Buyer for labor and material cost, including overhead and general administrative (G&A) expense reasonably incurred by Buyer in connection with: (i) the unscheduled removal and/or replacement of such Items or components thereof from a higher level assembly due to failure of such Items to conform to requirements of the Order or defective material, workmanship, or design; (ii)any such removal of said Items at Seller's request; or (iii) any such removal of said Items required because of any previously required changes to said Items which Seller has failed to incorporate.  This remedy is not exclusive and shall not be in lieu of any other remedy available at law, in equity, or under the Order. The Warranty Period shall be suspended upon notice that non-Conforming Items have been furnished until they have been repaired or replaced and redelivered to Buyer postage or freight prepaid, or in the case of nonconforming services, have been corrected. The un-expired portion of the warranty shall be applicable to the repaired, replaced, or corrected Conforming Items.

6.      CHANGES.
6.1    Buyer-Initiated Changes. Buyer may, at any time, by a written change order, make changes in any one or more of the following:  (a)   drawings, designs, specifications, where the Items to be furnished are to be specially manufactured for the Buyer in accordance therewith;

(c)     place or time of inspection, delivery, or acceptance;
(d)     the quantity and/or type of services ordered, the work or service schedules; or
(e)     the amount of any Buyer furnished property.  If any such change causes an increase or decrease in the cost of or time required for performance of the Order, an equitable adjustment shall be made in the price or delivery Schedule or both and the Order shall be modified accordingly. No claim by Seller for adjustment hereunder shall be allowed unless made in writing for a specified amount within twenty (10) days from the date notice of any such change is received by Seller. If Seller considers that the conduct, statement, or direction of any of Buyer’s employees constitutes a change hereunder, Seller shall notify Buyer’s authorized representative and take no action on the perceived change pending written approval of Buyer’s authorized representative.  Only Buyer’s authorized representative has authority to approve a change.  Any change made by Seller without such written approval shall be deemed voluntary by Seller and not compensable in the cost of or time required for performance.  Nothing in this Section 6shall excuse Seller from proceeding with performance of the Order as changed.

6.2    Compliance Changes. Notwithstanding the above or any other provision of the Order, Seller hereby agrees that any changes that are made to meet the specified performance requirements of the Order shall not entitle Seller to any adjustment in either price or delivery.

6.3     Design Changes.

To the extent the stop work order is canceled or expires, Seller shall resume work.  If a stop work order is the sole and exclusive cause of a material change in cost or delivery, an adjustment shall be made in the price or the delivery Schedule, or both, and the Order shall be modified accordingly; provided, however, that no adjustment in price or delivery shall be made under this Section 6 if, (i) the work would have been otherwise interrupted or delayed, or (ii) such adjustment is available or expressly excluded under any other provision of the Order.  No claim for adjustment shall be allowed unless submitted to Buyer in writing within twenty (20) days after the work is terminated or the stop work order expires or is canceled, which ever first occurs.

(c)   if Seller fails to provide Buyer, upon request, with adequate assurances of future performance within the time period requested by Buyer; or

Neither Seller nor Buyer shall be in breach or default for any delay or failure to perform under the Order because of causes beyond its control and without its fault or negligence; provided, that any delay or failure to perform caused by the default of a supplier of Seller at any lower-tier shall be excused only if (i) it is beyond the control of both Seller and such supplier and without the fault or negligence of either, (ii)the parts, supplies, components, or services to be furnished are not obtainable from other sources in sufficient time to permit Seller to meet the delivery Schedule, and (iii) Seller furnishes prompt written notice to Buyer of the occurrence of any such cause that will or may delay Seller's performance.  If delivery of any Item is delayed by any excusable delay for more than three (3) months, Buyer may, without any additional extension, cancel all or part of any order with respect to the delayed Item, and exercise any of its remedies at law or in equity.
