Buyer shall not set off amounts due to Seller against claims against Seller. Notwithstanding the foregoing, terms of payment on all orders are subject to the prior written approval of Seller’s credit department.

(ii) declare immediately due and payable all Buyer’s obligations to Seller; (iii) change credit terms with respect to any further work; (iv) suspend or discontinue any further work; and/or (v) repossess the Products.

Partial shipments, in Seller’s sole discretion, may be allowed. In no event shall Seller be liable for any loss, cost, damage or expense whatsoever incurred by Buyer or its customers that may result therefrom and the failure to meet such delivery dates does not constitute a cause for cancellation. Seller will notify Buyer as soon as practical of the commencement of conditions delaying or preventing delivery of ordered Products, and will provide Buyer with Seller’s best estimate of the rescheduled delivery. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence. Claims for shortages or other errors must be made in writing to Seller within 10 days of Seller’s delivery.

Orders acknowledged or shipped by Seller may not be canceled or deferred by Buyer, unless agreed in writing by Seller. In the event of a delay in delivery requested or caused by Buyer, orders will be deferred or held only upon specific written agreement and provided that the deferment period is not to exceed ninety (90) days, at the end of which time, Seller reserves the right to render an invoice and ship all Products ordered to destination specified in the Buyer’s order, or to warehouse such material at the Buyer’s risk and expense.
