Terms and Conditions of Sale

Wisco Products, Incorporated, an Ohio corporation ("Seller") acknowledges with appreciation, and hereby accepts the order from you (the "Buyer"). Seller's acceptance of your order is hereby expressly made conditional on your acceptance of the following terms and conditions:

1. Terms and Acceptance
All sales of goods manufactured or supplied by Seller ("Goods") shall be subject to these terms and conditions. ACCEPTANCE OF BUYER'S ORDER FOR SUCH GOODS BY SELLER IS EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED HEREIN AND ANY DOCUMENTS EXPRESSLY INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE. SELLER HEREBY OBJECTS TO ANY CONTRARY, DIFFERENT, OR ADDITIONAL TERMS OR CONDITIONS WHICH MAY NOW OR IN THE FUTURE APPEAR ON ANY FORM OF BUYER, OR ANY ALTERATIONS IN THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS DOCUMENT, UNLESS EXPRESSLY AGREED TO IN WRITING BY SELLER. WITH RESPECT TO BUYER'S OFFER TO PURCHASE THE GOODS, THIS DOCUMENT OR ANY OTHER ACKNOWLEDGMENT OR CONFIRMATION BY SELLER SHALL NOT OPERATE AS AN ACCEPTANCE OF BUYER'S OFFER, BUT RATHER SHALL BE DEEMED TO BE A COUNTEROFFER. Buyer's delivery of an acknowledgment and/or acceptance of these terms, or acceptance of the Goods, whichever occurs first, shall also constitute Buyer's consent to the terms hereof. Any reference to Buyer's order or other communication is for convenience only and not an incorporation of the terms thereof unless expressly stated.

2. Quotation
Prices, payment terms, and dates of delivery set forth in Seller's quotations are for informational purposes only, and shall not be binding on Seller unless and until Seller has confirmed in writing its acceptance of an order placed by Buyer in accordance with the quotation.

3. Terms of Payment
Unless otherwise agreed to in a signed writing, payment terms for all purchases of Goods are 1/2% 10 days/net 30 days of invoice date. Unless otherwise agreed to in a signed writing, prices do not include any additional costs, including, but not limited to, carriage and delivery costs, insurance, taxes, and costs associated with the importation/exportation of the Goods, all of which additional costs are the sole responsibility and expense of Buyer. In the event that Buyer shall fail to pay any part of the purchase price when due, Seller may, at its option, defer or cancel further shipments of the Goods and/or assess interest at a rate of 1% per month. Payment of such interest does not relieve Buyer of its obligations hereunder. Collection of past due accounts may be transferred to Seller's attorneys and all legal expenses/costs associated with collection of past due accounts are payable by Buyer.

4. Security Interest
Unless and until the Goods are fully paid for, Buyer hereby grants Seller a security interest in the Goods to secure the unpaid balance of the purchase price and all other obligations of Buyer to Seller however arising. Seller shall have the right to make any filings to secure any such security interest.

5. Transportation and Delivery; Risk of Loss
Unless otherwise agreed to in a signed writing, the Goods shall be shipped F.O.B. Seller's plant. All risk of damage, loss or theft shall be borne by Buyer, even if Seller expressly assumes any costs associated with the transportation and delivery of the Goods. Seller may, at its election, deliver the Goods in one or more installments. While Seller will attempt to meet any delivery date agreed to by the parties, it shall not be liable for delays in manufacture or delivery due to any event beyond Seller's or its subcontractors' reasonable control, including, but not limited to: force majeure, fires, floods, riots, strikes, labor disputes, freight embargoes, transportation delays, shortage of labor, inability to secure fuel, materials, supplies, equipment, or power on account of shortages thereof, or governmental import, export or transit suspensions or restrictions. Delivery may be delayed if Buyer fails to timely perform any of Buyer's obligations however arising or if Buyer fails to submit or later modifies information necessary for the delivery of the Goods. Delay in delivery does not entitle Buyer to cancel any order for Goods or to claim damages directly or indirectly attributable to such delay.

6. Changes
Buyer shall not be permitted to change any order for Goods without the prior written consent to such change by Seller, and which change, if accepted by Seller, shall be governed by the terms and conditions specified by Seller. If Seller agrees to any change, Buyer shall be responsible for any increase in price relating to the change of an order, including, but not limited to, costs incurred towards completion of the original order.

7. Limited Warranty; Disclaimers; Limitation of Liability and Remedies
For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of shipment, Seller warrants that the Goods are free from defects in material and workmanship and will conform to the applicable specifications and drawings. The foregoing warranty shall not apply in the event of misuse, neglect, damage by Buyer or any third party, or improper incorporation of the Goods into other goods. Buyer shall inspect the goods promptly upon receipt. All claims made in accordance with the terms of this warranty for alleged defects in the manufacture of the Goods, and any right of rejection or revocation of acceptance of the Goods are waived if (a) Buyer fails to give Seller notice of any claim within the warranty period and immediately after discovery of the claimed defect, or (b) Buyer has used the Goods or done any other act inconsistent with rejection or revocation of acceptance. Seller must give written authorization before any Goods may be returned to Seller. BUYER'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY PURSUANT TO ANY CLAIM OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH ANY ORDER FOR PURCHASE OF GOODS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO A CLAIM IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, OR TORT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY), STATUTORY OR REGULATORY PROVISIONS, INDEMNITY, CONTRIBUTION, OR OTHERWISE IS, AT SELLER'S OPTION, (i) THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE DEFECTIVE GOODS OR PORTIONS THEREOF, OR (ii) A REFUND OR CREDIT OF ALL OR A PORTION OF THE PURCHASE PRICE; PROVIDED THAT BUYER RETURNS TO SELLER THE DEFECTIVE GOODS IN ACCORDANCE WITH SELLER'S INSTRUCTIONS. Buyer further agrees that any accommodation to Buyer by Seller for any reason shall not be taken to establish any liability of Seller or any contract term inconsistent herewith. THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARISING BY LAW OR CUSTOM, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ALL OF WHICH ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS' FEES), ARISING OUT OF THE SALE OF GOODS TO BUYER OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSSES OR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF CLAIMS FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, GOODWILL, PROFITS, OR ARISING OUT OF THIRD PARTY ACTIONS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH THIRD PARTY ACTIONS, OR OTHER CLAIMS, LOSSES, OR DAMAGES, WERE REASONABLY FORESEEABLE TO BUYER OR SELLER, AND BUYER HEREBY WAIVES FOR ITSELF AND ITS SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS ANY SUCH CLAIMS AGAINST SELLER. All information, materials, and recommendations for use about the Goods are for informational purposes only, and do not constitute a warranty of any kind by Seller. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Buyer has independently determined the suitability of the Goods for Buyer's purposes, and Buyer assumes all risk and liability resulting from the use or incorporation of the Goods into other goods and shall indemnify, defend, and hold Seller harmless from all losses, expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs), damages, and claims resulting from the use or incorporation of the Goods into other goods. The warranty set forth herein cannot be changed or modified, whether by course of dealing, custom, trade or otherwise, unless agreed to in writing by Seller.
