make an equitable adjustment in the purchase price provided such additional costs are itemized for
the Buyer by the Seller within thirty days of the change.

DELIVERY AND PERFORMANCE. The Seller shall provide deliverables and perform services according to
the Buyer’s schedule. If the Seller is unable to make delivery in accordance to the Buyer’s

terminate the Purchase Order without liability to the Buyer, in addition to pursuing other rights.
The Buyer may return, at the Seller’s expense, items delivered to the Buyer early.

QUALITY. The Seller shall supply material in accordance with the Buyer’s specifications. Payment
for goods delivered shall not constitute acceptance thereof. Any material that does not fully
comply with the Buyer’s specifications or is found to be defective is subject to rejection and
shall be returned at the Seller’s expense.

TITLE AND WARRANTY.       The seller warrants that it has good title to any material sold hereunder
and that it has the right to transfer such title. Seller also warrants that all goods or services
furnished to the Buyer shall be merchantable and free from any defects in workmanship or material
for at least twelve months from the date of shipment to the ultimate customer and shall conform to
all specifications and appropriate standards. If the Seller has been informed of the use of the
goods, the Seller also warrants that the items furnished are fit for such use. The Seller shall
indemnify and save the Buyer harmless from any breach of these warranties, and no limitations on
the Buyer’s remedy in the Seller’s documents shall operate to reduce this indemnification. The
Seller shall extend all warranties it receives from its vendors to the Buyer, and the Seller’s
warranty shall extend to the Buyer’s customers.

LIABILITY. The Seller agrees to defend the Buyer, at the Seller’s expense, against all claims made
against the Buyer, arising out of or relating to the Seller’s products or the Seller’s performance

warranties set forth in this contract, (2) late performance, except excusable delays, (3) defective
products or performance, (4) failure of the Seller’s products or performance to conform to
specifications, the NEC, or government code requirements, or (5) infringement of any patent,
trademark, or copyright. The Seller further agrees to indemnify the Buyer for all judgments,
settlements, expenses and legal fees the Buyer incurs arising from such claims, including, if the
Seller fails to defend, legal fees, and expenses of enforcement of this indemnity. The Buyer, at
its option, may be represented by and actively participate through its own council in any such suit
or action. In the event of any claim or infringement resulting from the purchase of goods from the
Seller, the Buyer may cancel (without prejudice to any claims that the Buyer may have against
Seller) any or all of the unfilled portions of Purchase Orders for goods and may return to the
Seller for full refund the unused portion of goods.

TERMINATION. The Buyer reserves the right to terminate this contract for its convenience. In such
event, the Seller shall immediately stop all work and follow any instructions from the Buyer as to
work in progress. The Seller shall be paid for an equitable adjustment for work already performed.

the Buyer shall not be liable to the Seller for any amounts, and the Seller shall be liable for, and shall indemnify and hold the Buyer harmless from any
damages occasioned by the Seller’s default. If it should be determined that the Buyer has improperly terminated this
contract for default, such termination shall be deemed to be for the Buyer’s convenience.

The Seller will hold such goods pending the Buyer’s instructions, and the Buyer shall be liable
only for direct increased costs incurred by the Seller due to the Buyer’s instructions.
