(“Penn-Century”), to any purchaser (or, with respect to samples, prospective purchaser) (“Buyer”). Penn-Century does not accept and hereby expressly rejects all terms and conditions contained in any document issued by Buyer which purport to pertain to the Products and/or the relationship between Penn-Century and Buyer, which terms and conditions are in addition to or inconsistent with the terms and conditions set forth herein, and such terms and conditions shall not become part of the order between Buyer and Penn-Century. Acceptance of delivery of any Product by Buyer shall constitute acceptance of the End User Terms and Conditions hereof.
Orders. All orders are subject to acceptance in writing by Penn-Century at its office in Wyndmoor, PA. Buyer shall have no right to cancel any accepted order without the prior written consent of Penn-Century.
Prices. All stated prices are F.O.B. Penn-Century’s shipping point. Buyer shall bear and be solely responsible for all shipping costs and shall bear all risk of loss in transit.

Payment Terms. Prepayment shall be required for each shipment of Products unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Penn-Century. Notwithstanding the above, if at any time in Penn-Century’s judgment Buyer’s financial condition does not justify the continuation of production or shipment of Products on the terms of payment originally specified, Penn-Century may require full or partial payment in advance or upon delivery, may require other security for payment or performance, or may impose such other credit or payment terms as it deems appropriate in its sole discretion. All payments shall be made in U.S. currency.
