If any goods or services delivered do not meet the requirements of this Order, Buyer shall have the right to reject any such goods or services. Buyer may elect to reject all goods and services tendered even if only a portion thereof is nonconforming. If Buyer elects to accept nonconforming goods or services, Buyer, in addition to its other remedies, shall be entitled to deduct a reasonable amount from the price thereof to compensate Buyer for the nonconformity. Payment of any good or service shall not be deemed an acceptance thereof.
(b) Acceptance of any good or service after inspection shall not constitute a waiver of any warranty made by Seller hereunder or implied by law nor shall it preclude Buyer from revoking its acceptance thereafter for any latent defects or fraud.
4. RISK OF LOSS
Seller assumes (i) all risk of loss or damage to the goods until delivery to Buyer at the destination specified on the face of this Order; and (ii) all risk of loss or damage to any goods rejected by Buyer or for which Buyer has revoked its acceptance from the time of such rejection or revocation. The term “FOB” in this Order refers to transportation charges only and it does not change the foregoing provisions of this paragraph.

Packing and shipping shall be at Seller’s cost, including the cost of premium transportation when any goods are critical to Buyer’s delivery schedule.
Buyer may, by written notice, make changes to all or any part of this Order. If any such change causes an increase or decrease in the cost of or the time required for the performance hereunder, an equitable adjustment shall be made in the price or delivery schedule or both. Any claim for adjustment by Seller shall be deemed waived unless asserted in writing within ten (10) days from the receipt by Seller of the change. Changes shall not be binding on Buyer unless evidenced by a writing signed by an authorized representative of Buyer.
