If a Force Majeure Condition interferes with the Seller's delivery of the Product which would cause the cost of the Product to exceed the Purchase Price, the Seller shall be under no obligation to deliver the Product unless the Buyer agrees to pay such additional costs.
12. TERMINATION: The Seller may terminate this agreement if (a) a signed Purchase Order and/or a signed Purchase Order Confirmation are not received by the Seller within 5 working days of the Agreement date; (b) the Buyer is unwilling or unable to accept delivery of the Product(s) on the delivery date and the parties are unable to agree on another delivery date.

Any terms and conditions presented in orders placed by the Buyer which are in conflict with the terms and conditions of this agreement shall be inapplicable to the sale without the express written waiver of the Seller's Terms and Conditions of Sale. Acceptance of an order or shipment of Product(s) itself shall not be or deemed to be acceptance of any conflicting or additional terms and conditions.
