No change or modification to these terms and conditions shall be binding upon Seller unless the change or modification is in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer or representative of Buyer and Seller. Seller’s acceptance of Buyer’s order is expressly made conditional on Buyer’s ascent to these terms and conditions. Seller hereby specifically rejects any such term or condition of any order, confirmation or other documents sent by Buyer (whether before or after the date hereof) and Buyer agrees that any such terms and conditions shall not be part of this agreement unless in writing and signed by an authorized officer of Seller after the date hereof. Seller may update or replace its terms and conditions from time to time, and Seller’s revised terms and conditions shall be applicable to future agreements when made available to Buyer.
