2. PRICE / PAYMENT TERMS:
Firm Prices for the Goods and/or Services will be set out in the applicable Purchase Order. No Price adjustment or charges allowed unless expressly set out as approved written change to Purchase Order and shall not be effective unless agreed to in advance in writing by Purchaser.

All payments are to be provided net 45 Days from the date of invoice approved unless otherwise agreed. Where Progress Payments apply, holdbacks will be deducted per payment, balance to be paid out 60 days from project completion. Purchaser shall have the right to withhold payment of any invoiced amounts that are disputed in good faith until the parties reach an agreement with respect to such disputed amounts and such withholding of disputed amounts shall not be deemed a breach of this Agreement nor shall any interest be charged on such amounts.

Should Vendor fail to so notify Purchaser within ten (10) Days from the receipt of the Request, or should Vendor commence implementing the Request before giving such notice or should Vendor act on the basis of a Request given orally, Vendor shall be deemed to have waived any right it may have to claim relief or compensation on the grounds thereof. This Order may only be changed or modified by a Purchase Order Amendment issued by Purchaser. Any attempted oral modifications to this Order shall not be binding upon Purchaser.
Notwithstanding anything in this Purchase Order, Purchaser may at any time and without incurring payment of any penalty for damages, cancel the undelivered portion of Goods delivery and/or the any balance of Services terminate this Purchase Order, in whole or in part, specifying therein the effective date of such termination; or effective immediately in the case of an Event of Default by Vendor. For the purposes of this Purchase Order, an “Event of Default” shall mean any of the following: (a) breach of any terms of this Agreement; (b) failure to perform in accordance with the requirements of this Purchase Order; (c) failure to make progress so as to endanger timely and proper delivery of the Goods or completion of the Services and, in each such case, (d) Vendor does not cure or correct such breach or failure within Purchaser written notice of specified allowance time; (e) Vendor ceases or threatens to cease conducting business, or in the reasonable opinion of Purchaser will be unable to continue conducting business; (f) any petition, proceeding or other action under any law relating to bankruptcy or insolvency is filed or instituted by or against Vendor; or (g) Vendor subcontracts the performance of any of its obligations in this Purchase Order without the prior written consent of Purchaser or makes an unauthorized assignment of this Purchase Order. Upon such termination, Vendor shall immediately re-pay to Purchaser all sums of money, including deposits, paid by Purchaser net of the purchase price of conforming Product delivered prior to termination, and Purchaser shall have no further liability whatsoever to Vendor save for payment for conforming Goods and/or Services delivered prior to termination. Purchaser may make such equitable adjustments in the price and/or delivery requirements under this Order as Purchaser deems appropriate to address the change in Vendor’s circumstances, including Vendor’s on-going liability to perform its obligations regarding warranty, correction on defective Goods and/or balance of Services or other requirements under this Order.

If Goods are corrected or replaced or Services are re-performed, the warranties will continue as to the corrected or replaced Goods for a further Goods Warranty Period commencing on the date of Acceptance of the corrected or replaced Goods by Purchaser. If Vendor fails to repair or replace the Product within the time periods required above, Purchaser may repair or replace the Goods at Vendor’s expense.
