Vendor’s electronic acceptance, receipt and acknowledgement of this Purchase Order, or commencement of performance constitutes Vendor’s acceptance of these terms and conditions. The Purchase Order may be revoked at any time prior to acceptance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the parties enter or have entered into a master services agreement, purchase agreement or any other definitive agreement (“Master Agreement”), covering procurement of any services (“Services”) or commodities and/or goods described in this Purchase Order (collectively, “Products”), the terms of such Master Agreement shall prevail over any inconsistent terms herein.

DELIVERY:  Vendor will expediently perform its obligations under this Purchase Order. If Vendor delivers the Products after the date of delivery of Products (“Delivery Date”), Purchaser may reject the Products. Purchaser shall have a reasonable time after receipt of Products before payment to inspect them for conformity to the Purchase Order and applicable specifications.  Products received prior to inspection shall not be deemed accepted until Purchaser has run adequate tests to determine whether the Products conform thereto. Vendor will preserve, pack, package and handle the Products so as to protect the Products from loss or damage and in accordance with industry best practices. Without limiting the foregoing, Vendor shall observe the requirements of any local laws and regulations relating to hazardous work, including, without limitation, with respect to its accompanying information, packing, labeling, reporting, carriage and disposal. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing or specified in a Purchase Order, delivery will be made to “Purchaser’s Ship To” location specified in the Purchase Order.

Without limiting the foregoing, (i) the Deliverables are “works made for hire” to the extent permitted by law, and (ii) Vendor will not assert, and otherwise waives, any “moral rights” in the Deliverables and assigns to Purchaser all “moral rights” in the Deliverables. If for any reason such Deliverables are not works made for hire, Vendor hereby assigns all right, title and interest in such materials to Purchaser and agrees to assist Purchaser, at Purchaser's expense, to perfect such interest.

To the extent Vendor is providing software under this Purchase Order other than as part of Deliverables, Vendor hereby grants to Purchaser the right and license to use the software and any software documentation in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Purchase Order. The rights and licenses hereby granted are non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, transferable and fully paid up upon Purchaser’s payment of the license fee.
