Unless otherwise agreed, Buyer shall be responsible for compliance with the export control laws and regulations of the UK Government, and when required by such laws and regulations shall obtain validated export and re-export licenses required for goods, services and technical data delivered under this Order.  Seller shall not be liable to Buyer for any failure to provide goods, services or technical data as a result of any following UK Government actions: (1) refusal to grant export or re-export license; (2) cancellation of export or re-export license; or (3) any subsequent interpretation of UK export laws and regulations, after the date of this order, that limits or has a material adverse effect on the cost of Seller’s performance on this Order.

  1. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

Seller’s liability on any claim for loss or damage arising out of, connected with, or resulting from an Order, or from the performance or breach thereof, or from the manufacture, sale, delivery, resale, repair or use of any product covered by or furnished under an Order shall in no case exceed the price allocable to the product or part thereof which gives rise to the claim, except as provided in the paragraph entitled “Patent Indemnity”.  In no event shall Seller be liable for special, incidental or consequential damages.  Except as herein expressly provided to the contrary, the provisions of this Order are for the benefit of the parties to the Order and not for the benefit of any other person.

  1. NONDISCLOSURE AND NON-USE OF SELLERS INFORMATION.

Buyer agrees that it will not use Seller’s data for the manufacture or procurement of products which are the subject of this Order or any similar products, or cause said products to be manufactured by or procured from any other source, or reproduce said data and information or otherwise appropriate them without the written authorization of the Seller.  Buyer agrees that it will not disclose or make available to any third party any of Seller’s data or other information pertaining to this Order which is proprietary to Seller without obtaining Seller’s prior written consent.

  1. PATENT INDEMNITY.

Except insofar as an Order calls for products pursuant to Buyer’s designs, drawings or specifications, Seller agrees to pay the amount of any final judgment against Buyer resulting from a suit claiming that any commercial products manufactured or furnished hereunder, by reason of their manufacture, sale or use, infringes any United Kingdom patent which has issued at date of contract, and Buyer’s reasonable costs and expenses in defense of such suit if Seller does not undertake the defense thereof, provided Seller is promptly notified of the threat or commencement of such suit and is offered full and exclusive control to conduct the defense or settlement thereof.

Seller’s indemnity shall not apply where infringement would not have occurred from the normal use for which the products were designed.  No responsibility is assumed for actual or alleged infringement of any foreign patent.  Seller’s liability for damages hereunder is limited to those computed solely on the value of any products sold to Buyer.  In no event shall Seller be liable for consequential damages or costs applicable thereto.  In the event of any claim that a product furnished hereunder infringes any United Kingdom patent, Seller may at its option and expense (a) procure for Buyer the right to continue using the product, or (b) replace or modify the product so that it becomes non-infringing, or (c) grant Buyer a credit for such product, less a reasonable depreciation for use, damage, and obsolescence upon its return to Seller.  Buyer agrees to pay all costs and expenses incurred by Seller in its defense and the amount of any judgment against Seller, in any suit or proceeding against Seller based upon a claim of infringement, resulting solely from the Buyer combining any product furnished hereunder with any item not manufactured or furnished by Seller or from the sale or use of any such combination by Buyer.  Seller shall also indemnify Buyer’s Buyers and agents for such infringement, if and to the extent that Buyer has agreed so to indemnify them, but to no greater extent than Seller has indemnified Buyer herein and under the same conditions as set forth herein.  In the event any product to be furnished under this Order is to be made in accordance with drawings, samples or manufacturing specifications designated by Buyer and is not the design of Seller, Buyer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Seller harmless to the same extent and subject to the same requirements as set forth in Seller’s obligation to Buyer as above.  The above is in lieu of any other indemnity or warranty, express or implied by Seller, with respect to intellectual property (patents, trade secret, mask works, trademarks, copyrights, or the like).

  1. TAXES.

The prices quoted herein do not include sums necessary to cover any taxes or duties including but not limited to Federal, State, Municipal excise, sales or use taxes or import duties upon the production, sales, distribution, or delivery of goods or furnishing of services hereunder.  Any taxes or duties that are due and owing hereunder shall be paid by the Buyer.  Accordingly, Seller reserves the right to revise its price after the execution of this Order between the parties to include any and all taxes or duties that may become due hereunder and Seller may invoice Buyer for said additional amount.  This clause shall survive the acceptance and complete performance of this Order by the parties herein.

  1. ASSIGNMENT.

Neither party shall assign this Order or any portion thereof without the advance, written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.  The non-assigning party shall not have any obligation to an assignee of the assigning party unless such consent is obtained.

  1. WAIVER.

Failure by Seller to assert all or any of its rights upon any breach of this Order shall not be deemed a waiver of such rights either with respect to such breach or any subsequent breach, nor shall any waiver be implied from the acceptance of any payment or service.  No waiver of any right shall extend to or affect any other right Seller may possess, nor shall such waiver extend to any subsequent similar or dissimilar breach.

  1. SEVERABILITY.

If any provision of these Conditions of Sale is determined to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, for any reason, then such provision shall be deemed stricken for purpose of the dispute in question, and all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
