ACCEPTANCE: Notwithstanding anything in BUYER's form of Purchase Order or other order form to the contrary, BUYER's acceptance of the Goods shall constitute an affirmation by BUYER that the terms and conditions set forth herein govern the purchase and sale of the Goods and that the terms in BUYER's order forms that are in addition to, in conflict with, or are different from the terms and conditions herein shall have no effect on this transaction. The contract formed in accordance with the foregoing shall be referred to as the "Order".

In addition, the BUYER agrees to pay any sales or other taxes levied on or measured by such purchase price, or arising from the use of the Goods and any parts or maintenance supplied, including without any limitations, any additional sales, use, gross receipts, privilege, excise, customs duties and personal property taxes unless specified in writing on this document.

8. FORCE MAJEURE: FLM shall not be held responsible for any failure of performance to make timely delivery of all or any part of the Goods in the event such failure was due, in whole or in part, to federal, state or municipal action, statute, ordinance or regulation, strike or other labor trouble, fire or other damage to or destruction of, in whole or in part, the Goods or the manufacturing facility of the Goods, the lack of or inability to obtain raw materials, labor, fuel, electrical power, water or supplies, or any other cause, act of God, contingency or circumstances within or outside the United States not subject to the control of FLM, which causes or hinders the manufacture or delivery of Goods.
9. CANCELLATION: An order may not be canceled, in whole or in part, by BUYER without FLM's prior written consent and only upon terms and conditions that will indemnify, hold harmless and compensate FLM against loss including, but not limited to, the loss of profits as a result of such cancellation.
10. SECURITY AGREEMENT: FLM shall retain a purchase money security interest (including but not limited to the filing of a Form UCC1 Financial Statement) in the Goods to secure the performance by BUYER of all obligations. Buyer grants FLM the option at any time to ask its attorney-in-fact to prepare, sign and file (or record) in BUYER's name any financing statement or other document necessary to protect FLM's security interest in goods subject to this agreement.
11. ATTORNEY'S FEES: If any suit or action to enforce or to interpret any of the terms, conditions, or covenants herein, or to recover damages as a result of a breach of any provision of this Order, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the party not prevailing the costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees incurred by the prevailing party in prosecuting or defending such action and any appeals taken there from.

13. GOVERNING LAW / VENUE / ARBITRATION: Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of, or relating to this Agreement, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by binding arbitration in Rochester, NY before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by the arbitration service selected by FLM at the time of filing. Judgement on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
The parties will share the costs of the arbitration equally subject to final apportionment by the arbitrator(s). The arbitrator(s) will apply the law of the State of New York in any such arbitration proceeding. The decision of the arbitrator(s) will be final.
