The Buyer shall reimburse the Company for any costs of collection incurred in collecting any past due sums, including attorneys' fees. To secure the Buyer's obligation to pay the Company the purchase price of the goods, the Buyer grants to the Company a security interest in the goods and any proceeds thereof, with full rights as a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code, and the Buyer appoints the Company as its attorney in fact to sign any financing statements evidencing such security interest on behalf of the Buyer.

All claims for loss, damage or delay against the carrier must be made by the Buyer. The Buyer shall accept partial delivery of any order and any defect related to said partial delivery or failure to make any subsequent partial delivery shall be severable and not constitute a breach of the entire agreement.

To qualify for shipping collect (against Buyer’s account number), the customer must be in good standing and have reached a minimum of US$10,000 in annual sales with the Company.

The notification shall identify each alleged non-conforming of the goods and describe that portion of the shipment being rejected.
