in Buyer's purchase order, if one exists, or other writing or oral representation
previously or hereafter received by Seller purporting to amend or replace
the terms of this Agreement with any different or additional terms or
reciting that provision or delivery of the Products or any other action
or inaction by Seller constitutes agreement or consent by Seller to such

The prices specified on the form, and any applicable transportation charges,

Buyer's payment in full for the Products. Buyer hereby authorizes Seller
to execute any UCC financing statement, or any other document necessary
or appropriate, to protect Seller's security interest.

brought by or against Seller regarding the subject matter of this Agreement

policies regarding, among other things, charges based on size of shipment,
as in effect from time to time, shall apply to all deliveries. Seller
is not responsible for loading or transporting Product unless Seller expressly
agrees otherwise in writing. Delivery dates are approximate. Seller will
make every effort to meet its agreed upon shipment date. Seller shall
not, however, be liable to Buyer for any loss or damage due to delays
