(“CharitySolar”) and the purchaser (“Buyer”) are subject to the general terms and conditions of business contained herein (“General Terms and Conditions”), and receipt by Buyer of the General Terms and Conditions without immediate written objection thereto and/or acceptance by Buyer of an order of Products (as hereinafter defined) which is confirmed or accompanied by the General Terms and Conditions, shall constitute an acceptance by Buyer of the General Terms and Conditions and any additional terms and conditions of CharitySolar set forth on any attachment(s) hereto. Any additional or different terms and conditions contained in any response hereto by Buyer or in Buyer’s initial offer shall be deemed rejected by CharitySolar without the need for further notice of rejection and shall be of no effect and shall not be in any circumstances binding upon CharitySolar, except as set forth in Section 18 herein. The General Terms and Conditions shall govern any such order and all future business transactions between CharitySolar and Buyer relating to the purchase and sale of goods manufactured by or for CharitySolar and any other related parts and/or accessories (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Products” or individually as a “Product”), even in cases where the General Terms and Conditions are not expressly re-agreed upon.

Acceptance of Order.
Each order of Products shall not become effective and shall not be binding on CharitySolar until the earlier of (i) shipment by CharitySolar of Products conforming to such order or (ii) transmittal by CharitySolar of a written acceptance of such order to Buyer.

Cancellation; Indemnification.
An order placed with and accepted by CharitySolar can be canceled by Buyer only with the prior written consent of CharitySolar and only upon terms that will indemnify CharitySolar for all losses incurred by CharitySolar associated with Buyer’s cancellation, including but not limited to, the costs already incurred by CharitySolar in performance of CharitySolar’s contractual duties and any profits which CharitySolar would have received had the purchase been completed. If Buyer makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, if a petition or other proceeding, voluntary or involuntary, is filed by or against Buyer under applicable bankruptcy, reorganization or other insolvency laws, if Buyer generally becomes unable to pay its debts as they become due, or if Buyer fails to remit payment to CharitySolar for Products in accordance with the terms hereof, CharitySolar may, at its option, cancel all deliveries of undelivered Products or any confirmed orders effective immediately by giving Buyer written notice of such cancellation.

Product Descriptions. All references in sales brochures, technical data sheets and offers as to size, weight, technical specifications, price and other details of the Products are approximate and shall not be binding on CharitySolar unless expressly incorporated in an accepted order. CharitySolar reserves the right, from time to time, to modify, in whole or in part, any one or more of the Products or specifications thereof, to substitute new products in lieu of any one or more of the Products, and to add new products to the Products, whereupon in each case the term of Products as used in this Agreement shall be deemed automatically to reflect such events.

Taxes. Prices quoted by CharitySolar for the Products do not include applicable sales, use, excise and similar taxes. In addition to the amount quoted by CharitySolar for the Products, Buyer shall pay all such taxes which under applicable statutes are required to be paid as a result of the sale to Buyer regardless of the party upon whom the obligation to pay is placed. Taxes may be included on CharitySolar’s invoice with Products or may be separately invoiced at the discretion of CharitySolar; any such invoice shall specify each category of taxes which Buyer is required to pay.

Shipment; Installments. Buyer will give CharitySolar reasonable notice regarding Buyer's requirements for time and delivery of the Products unless otherwise specified in a writing signed by CharitySolar.Buyer understands and agrees that CharitySolar will use CharitySolar’s reasonable efforts to ship the Products approximately on the estimated supply date set forth in an accepted order. CharitySolar ensures that the Products will be packaged and prepared for shipment to Buyer in a reasonable manner such as to prevent damage and shall comply with applicable regulations. CharitySolar shall not be responsible for any delays in shipment beyond CharitySolar's reasonable control but shall notify Buyer of any anticipated delays. It is expressly understood that CharitySolar may delay release of the Products to Buyer or Buyer’s agents until such time as payments due, as set forth herein, have been received by CharitySolar. CharitySolar reserves the right to make delivery in installments unless otherwise expressly stipulated to the contrary in a writing signed by CharitySolar.Delay in delivery of any one or more installments shall not relieve Buyer of Buyer’s obligation to accept remaining deliveries.

Payment. Payment terms shall be due upon ordering unless otherwise specified on the invoice. Invoicesshall be payable only in United States currency. CharitySolar may from time to time demand different terms of payment from those specified herein whenever it reasonably appears that Buyer's financial condition requires such change, and may demand assurance of Buyer's ability to pay whenever it reasonably appears that such ability is in doubt. CharitySolar may, upon making of such demand, stop production and suspend shipments hereunder. If, within the period stated in such demand, Buyer fails or refuses such different terms of payment, or fails or refuses to give adequate assurance of its ability to pay, CharitySolar may at CharitySolar’s option treat such failure or refusal as a repudiation of any portion of an accepted order that has not been fully performed. In all events, time shall be of the essence with regard to Buyer’s payment obligations to CharitySolar hereunder. In addition, Buyer agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses of collection of amounts past due hereunder (including any interest thereon), including, but not limited to, actual fees and expenses of CharitySolar’s attorneys, and other legal and court costs. The foregoing rights of CharitySolar shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights or remedies CharitySolar may have at law or in equity. With respect to amounts properly invoiced or otherwise payable hereunder, Buyer shall have no right of offset by virtue of any claim against CharitySolar, unless and until such claim has been finally adjudicated in favor of Buyer by a court of competent jurisdiction and such adjudication is not subject to appeal, or CharitySolar has acknowledged the validity and amount of such claim in writing.
