These terms and conditions exclude any other terms and conditions inconsistent therewith which Buyer might seek to impose even though such other terms and conditions may purport to exclude or supersede any terms and conditions inconsistent with them.

2. Delivery
WTP shall not maintain an inventory of the Parts and, unless prior arrangements have been made between the parties, WITP shall make delivery to Buyer, at Buyer’s risk and expense, by a carrier of WITP’s choosing (unless Buyer shall specify an alternate carrier reasonably acceptable to WITP), at the address specified in this Contract as soon as reasonably practicable after release by WITP’s quality control department. When prior arrangements have been made between the parties for specific delivery dates, any delivery made within ten (10) days after the dates specified shall constitute a good delivery. Title to such Parts shall not pass until they have been fully paid for by Buyer.

3. Force Majeure

WITP reserves the right, even after partial payment on account of this Contract with WITP, to require from Buyer satisfactory security for due performance of its obligations. Refusal to furnish such satisfactory security or failure of Buyer to perform any of its obligations under this or any other existing Contract will entitle WITP, upon notice to Buyer, to suspend shipments, alter payment terms or cancel this Contract without prejudice to any claim for damages to which WITP may be entitled.
