The Terms and Conditions of Sale contained herein (the “Agreement”) constitute the entire agreement between POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC.,
Inc. (“Seller” or “POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC.”) and the party which places a purchase order with POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC. (“Buyer”) and shall control all purchases of Products (as hereinafter defined) by Buyer from POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC. POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC. will not be bound by any terms of Buyer’s purchase order unless expressly agreed to in writing by POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC. No form of acceptance except POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC.’s written or electronic acknowledgment provided to Buyer or POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC.’s commencement of performance shall constitute valid acceptance of Buyer’s purchase order; any such acceptance is expressly conditioned on Buyer’s assent to the terms hereof and the exclusion of all additional or different terms except as may be set forth in a written agreement expressly superseding these terms. Buyer shall be deemed to have assented to the terms hereof, whether or not previously received, upon accepting delivery of anything shipped by POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC. If tender of these terms is deemed an offer, acceptance is expressly limited to the terms hereof and POLYPHASE MICROWAVE INC. hereby gives notice of its objection to any additional or different terms proposed by Buyer in its purchase order or any other documents.
“Product(s)” shall mean any products identified on (a) Seller’s quotations or (b) Seller’s acknowledgments of a purchase order. In the event of any inconsistency between (x) the quotation and the acknowledgment or (y) the purchase order and the acknowledgment, the acknowledgment shall control.
Buyer shall purchase Products by issuing a written purchase order (the “Order”) signed by an authorized representative, indicating specific Products, quantity, unit price, total purchase price, shipping instructions, bill-to and ship-to addresses, tax exempt certificates, if applicable, and any other special instructions. Any contingencies contained on such order are not binding upon Seller. Seller will accept or reject orders according to its then-current procedures. All Orders are subject to acceptance in writing by Seller.
Payment terms are net 30 days from invoice date for customers with approved credit. Accounts more than 30 days past due will be subject to a late charge at the rate of 1½% per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is lower. As security for the full and prompt payment, in cash, of any amounts due under this Agreement, Buyer hereby grants to Seller a security interest in any goods furnished by Seller to Buyer. Buyer hereby irrevocably designates and appoints the Seller as its agent and attorney-in-fact to act for and on Buyer’s behalf to execute and file any document and to do all other lawfully permitted acts to perfect this security interest or protect Seller’s interest in the goods with the same legal force and effect as if executed by Buyer.
Delivery terms shall be F.O.B. Bloomington, Indiana.

Under no circumstances shall products be returned to Seller without Seller’s written permission. A claim that products are non-conforming shall not entitle Buyer to deduct any sum from any invoice unless such claim has been allowed in writing. Invoices shall be paid in full in accordance with the terms of sale and in the event of subsequent allowance of any claim Seller shall promptly pay to Buyer the amount so allowed.
