Buyer is hereby notified of XWParts express rejection of any terms inconsistent with this Agreement or to any other terms proposed by Buyer in accepting XWParts quotation. Neither XWParts subsequent lack of objection to any terms, nor the delivery of the products or services, shall constitute an agreement by XWParts to any terms.
CANCELLATION. CANCELLATION. Cancellation or modifications of all or part of any order are subject to XWParts prior written consent in each instance. If cancellation or modification is allowed, Buyer agrees to pay to XWParts all expenses incurred and damage sustained by XWParts on account of the cancellation or modification, plus a reasonable profit.

If possible, XWParts will bill Taxes as a separate item on the invoice presented to Buyer. If any exemption certificate presented by Buyer is held to be invalid, then Buyer will pay XWParts the amount of the Tax and any penalties and interest related thereto

Unpaid amounts will accrue interest at a rate equal to the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month and the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, from due date until paid, plus XWParts reasonable costs of collection.

The delivery date provided by XWParts for the Products is only an estimate and is based upon prompt receipt of all necessary information from Buyer. If Buyer causes XWParts to delay shipment or completion of the Products, XWParts will be entitled to any and all extra costs and expenses resulting from the delay. XWParts will not be liable for any delays, loss, or damage in transit, and failure to deliver within the time estimated will not be a material breach of contract on XWParts part.
