    extend to the U.S. government only if and to the
    extent Buyer has agreed to indemnify the U.S.

    upon Buyer unless evidenced by a purchase order change
    notice and issued and signed by Buyer.
  8. FORCE MAJEURE. Seller shall not be liable for any delay or
    failure to deliver any or all of the goods covered by this
    purchase order in the event of delay or failure caused by
    governmental regulations, labor disputes, strikes, war, riots,
    insurrection, civil commotion, mobilization, explosion, fire,
    flood, accident, storm or any act of God, failure of crops or
    supplies, delays of common carriers, embargoes, or other
    causes beyond Seller’s reasonable control. Similarly, Buyer
    shall not be liable for failure to take delivery of the goods for
    any of the above causes, or other causes beyond Buyer’s
    reasonable control if they render it commercially
    impracticable for Buyer to receive or use the goods on a

    equitable manner. Where either Seller or Buyer claims an
    excuse of nonperformance under this paragraph, it must give

    aforementioned causes. No goods are to be tendered by
    Seller after expiration of the terms specified in this purchase
    order without consent of Buyer.

    requirements relating to equal employment opportunity,
    minority business subcontracting, small business
    subcontracting, labor surplus area subcontracting and clean
    air and water, and at the request of Buyer, Seller shall
    execute and shall be bound by any certifications or
    agreements incorporating such requirements in forms
    approved by Buyer.

    services of its supervisor expert or other employee in
    connection with the installation or any other matter under this
    order to perform work on Buyer’s premises, Seller agrees,
    whether or not a separate charge is made therefore, that
    such supervisor, expert or other employee of Seller, in
    performing such services, is not and shall not be deemed to
    be the agent or employee of Buyer. Seller assumes full
    responsibility for its acts and omissions and agrees to save
    Buyer harmless from any claims whatever arising therefrom.
    Seller assumes exclusive liability for any payroll or other
    taxes imposed upon the employer by an Federal or State law.
  12. DECLINE IN PRICE. Buyer shall be protected against
    declining prices on the undelivered portion of this order.
    Seller may elect to meet price reductions of other
    vendors or its own lower prices to other purchasers, but
    if Seller should refuse to do so Buyer shall have the right
    to cancel any or all of the balance due on this order
    without cost to Buyer.
  13. NOTICE OF LABOR DISPUTE. Whenever Seller has
    knowledge that any actual or potential labor dispute may
    delay this order, Seller shall immediately notify and submit all
    relevant information to Buyer. Seller shall insert the

    as to which a labor dispute may delay this order. However,
    any subcontractor need give notice and information only to its
    next higher tier contractor.
    RELEASE. No news release, including photographs and
    film, advertisements, public announcement, denial or
    confirmation of same or any part of the subject matter of
    this order or any phase of any program thereunder shall
    be made without prior written approval of Buyer.

    Uniform Commercial Code of the State in which Buyer
    has executed this order.
  16. WAIVER. The right of Buyer to require strict performance
    of this order shall not be affected by any prior waiver of
    course of performance.
