Any term, condition or reservation, inconsistent with the terms hereof that may be contained in any printed or standard acknowledgement, invoice form or other document issued by Seller shall be of no effect (Purchaser hereby objects to any such inconsistent terms, conditions, or reservations and notifies Seller that they are rejected), notwithstanding Purchasers act of accepting or paying for any shipment or otherwise performing the obligations on its part to be observed or performed hereunder.

If price is not stipulated on this Order, it is not to be filled at higher prices than last previously quoted or charged without written authority of Purchaser.

4. All goods shall be shipped F.O.B. as stated on the face of the Order. If goods are shipped F.O.B. destination or Purchaser’s plant, shipping charges must be prepaid in all cases. No insurance premium or shipping costs will be allowed unless authorized in writing. Goods must be packed and delivered to conform with Uniform Freight Classifications to obtain lowest shipping rate.

No payment will be made to Seller with respect to any goods which are rejected on such inspection. Purchaser reserves the right to retain any portion of any shipment not strictly in accordance with specifications and in such case will pay to Seller a reasonable price therefor, but such retention shall not preclude Purchaser from rejecting the remainder of any or other shipments.
