ACCEPTANCE OF ORDER.
Acceptance of the SEKISUI KYDEX, LLC Quotation (the “SEKISUI KYDEX Quote”) is expressly limited to the terms and conditions contained herein (the “Terms”) (the SEKISUI KYDEX Quote and the Terms, collectively, the “Agreement”). This Agreement governs the sale of products and materials provided by SEKISUI KYDEX (“Products”).

Any term or condition stated by CUSTOMER in any prior proposal, on CUSTOMER’s purchase orders or otherwise, or in otherwise acknowledging or placing this order, is deemed by SEKISUI KYDEX to be a material alteration of the Agreement and is hereby rejected by SEKISUI KYDEX. Any such term or condition shall be totally inapplicable to this Agreement unless specifically agreed to in writing and signed by SEKISUI KYDEX or an authorized representative of SEKISUI KYDEX. SEKISUI KYDEX’s failure to object to CUSTOMER’s additional or conflicting terms does not operate as a waiver of any Terms contained in this Agreement.
TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS. Title to and all risk of loss of any material sold here under shall pass to buyer at the point of shipment upon tender of delivery.
CREDIT. Each delivery to be made hereunder shall be subject to receipt of cash or to credit arrangements made by Buyer with Seller.
