These general terms and conditions of sale, unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing between the Company and customer, apply to every sale by the Company and are included in each acceptance by the Company of any customers offer to purchase. If a customer offers to purchase products from the Company by use of its own purchase order or similar form, any terms proposed anywhere therein which add to, vary from, or conflict with these General terms and conditions of sale are objected to the Company and expressly rejected and shall not be a part of the resulting Contract of Sale unless the proposed terms are accepted and approved in a written document referring specifically to such terms and signed by the Company.

The company and any customer who purchases products from it are each free without penalty to cease doing business with the other at any time, for any reason whatsoever and without notice, unless otherwise provided in a separate, written contract signed by an officer of the Company and of the particular customer.
