representatives and Buyer’s customer’s employees, and/or representatives. At the time of inspection, Seller shall make available to such representatives copies of all specifications, drawings, and other technical data applicable to

other proprietary right, now or hereafter in effect (except in the case of Goods for which Buyer furnishes detailed manufacturing drawings), and (ii).shall be free from any and all liens or other encumbrances.
(c) All obligations of Seller hereunder shall survive acceptance of and/or payment for the Goods. Seller shall indemnify and hold Buyer harmless from and against all liability, loss, consequential and incidental damages, and

drawings, or designs, (ii) method of shipment or packaging, and (iii) place of delivery.
(b) If Buyer’s change order causes an increase or decrease in the cost of performance or in the time required for performance, an equitable adjustment shall be made to the Order price and/or delivery sched ule and Buyer’s
Order shall be modified in writing accordingly. Any claim for adjustment under this Section shall be deemed waived unless asserted in writing within twenty (20) days from the date of receipt by Seller of the change order, provided,
however, that Buyer, if it decides that the facts justify such action, may receive and act upon such claim submitted at any time prior to final payment under Buyer’s Order. Any such claim must set forth the amount of any increase
or decrease in the cost of performance resulting from the change in the format and detail reasonably specified by Buyer. Failure to agree upon an equitable adjustment shall not relieve Seller from proceeding without any delay in
performance of Buyer’s Order as changed.
(c) Buyer’s engineering and technical personnel may from time to time render assistance, give technical advice, or exchange infor mation with Seller’s personnel in relation to Buyer’s Order. Such assistance, advice, and/or
exchange of information shall not be construed as Buyer’s consent or authority to effect any changes to Buyer’s Order or the Goods and/or Services provided thereunder. Under no circumstances shall any resulting change in
Goods and/or Services or provisions of Buyer’s Order be binding upon Buyer unless incorporated as a change in accordance with paragraph (a), above.

materials and work-in-process to reflect on a pro rata basis any indicated loss on the entire Order had it been completed. Payment made under this Section constitutes Buyer’s only liability in the event Buyer’s Order is terminated
(a) Buyer may, by written notice to Seller and subject to paragraphs (c) and (d) below, terminate Buyer’s Order in whole or in part if Seller fails to (i) deliver the Goods or to perform the Services within the time specified in
Buyer’s Order, or any extension authorised by Buyer, (ii) make progress so as to endanger performance of Buyer’s Order; or (iii) perform any of the other provisions of Buyer’s Order.

Buyer’s notice specifying the failure.
(c) Except for defaults of vendors or subcontractors at any tier, Seller shall not be liable for any excess costs if the failure to perform the Order arises as a result of Force Majeure, as defined herein.

Buyer, Seller shall also protect and preserve property in its possession in which Buyer has an interest.
(f) Buyer shall pay the Order price for completed Goods delivered and accepted. Seller and Buyer shall agree on the amount of pay ment for the Manufacturing Materials delivered and accepted and for the protection and
preservation of the property. Buyer may withhold from these amounts any sum that Buyer determines to be necessary to protect Buyer against loss because of outstanding liens or claims of former lien holders.
(g) If, after termination, it is determined that Seller was not in default, or that the default was excusable, the rights and obl igations of the Parties shall be the same as if the termination had been issued for the convenience of

Seller without obligation of confidentiality at the time of receipt from Buyer, (ii) is independently developed by Seller without use or reference to the Confidential Information as evidenced by tangible evidence, (iii) appears in any
printed publication or patent, or is in the public domain, except as a result of a breach of this Agreement by Seller, or (iv) is lawfully and rightfully received, free of restrictions, by Seller from a third-party not known by Seller to be
under any nondisclosure or confidentiality obligation or to have misappropriated or otherwise unlawfully obtained such information.
(e) All Confidential Information and any other technical information provided by Buyer to Seller shall at all times be and remain the property of Buyer and shall only be used by Seller in connection with Seller’s performance of

claims, demands, and causes of action ("Claims") for death, personal injury, or property damage arising out of any negligent act or omission of the Indemnifying Parties in the performance of Buyer’s Order, except to the extent
such losses are contributed to by (a) the negligence or wilful misconduct of the Indemnified Party, or (b) the negligence or wilful misconduct of any third-parties, Buyer’s indemnification of Seller does not apply unless Seller (a)
notifies Buyer in writing of any such Claim as soon as reasonably practicable, and (b) allows Buyer to control, and reasonably cooperates with Buyer, in the defence of any such Claim and related settlement negotiations.
(a) If Buyer’s Order provides for Services or work to be performed by Seller, or if Seller’s employees, representatives, agents, vendors, or subcontractors, are required to perform work on property owned and controlled by
Buyer, or on property of third-parties, Seller shall procure and maintain insurance coverage with carriers reasonably satisfactory to Buyer, including (i) Workers Compensation insurance with statutory limits, as required by the state
or province in which the Services or work are to be performed, (ii) Employer’s Liability insurance with limits of no less than one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) per occurrence, (iii) Commercial General Liability insurance with limits
of no less than one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) per occurrence covering liability for bodily injury and property damage, (iv) Automobile Liability insurance coverage with a limit of no less than one million dollars ($1,000,000.00)
per accident, and (v) Excess or Umbrella Liability insurance coverage with a limit of no less than two million dollars ($2,000,000.00) per occurrence in excess of each of the above mentioned policies.
(b) All liability insurance policies shall name Buyer, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, successors, and assigns, as additional insureds. Seller shall provide evidence of the required insurance coverages and file with
Buyer a Certificate of Insurance reasonably acceptable to Buyer prior to commencement of Services or work. The insurance policies and coverages required by this Section shall contain a provision that coverages afforded under
the policies shall not be cancelled, allowed to expire, or reduce the coverages and limits in any manner until at least thirty (30) days prior written notice has been given to Buyer. Seller shall waive all rights of subrogation against
Buyer under the foregoing policies. All insurance coverages shall be provided by insurance companies having ratings of A-/VII or better in the Best’s Key Rating Insurance Guide (latest edition in effect at the latest date stated in
the Certificate of Insurance referred to herein).
(c) Failure to obtain and maintain the required insurance shall constitute a breach of Buyer’s Order and Seller shall be liable for any and all costs, liabilities, damages, and penalties (including attorneys’ fees, court, and
settlement expenses) resulting to Buyer from such breach, unless a written waiver of the specific insurance requirement is provided to Seller by Buyer.
Notwithstanding any other provision herein, under no circumstances shall either Party be liable for any consequential, special, incidental, indirect, multiple, administrative, or punitive damages, or any damage of an indirect or
consequential nature arising out of or related to its performance under Buyer’s Order, including, without limitation, loss of use, loss of revenues, loss of anticipated profits, and cost of capital, whether based upon breach of Buyer’s
Order, warranty, negligence, or any other type of Claim, and whether grounded in tort, contract, civil law, or other theories of liability, including strict liability, even if advised in advance of the possibility of such damages. Buyer’s
total liability arising from or related to Buyer’s Order, including, but not limited to, its liability for indemnity, defence, and hold harmless obligations under Buyer’s Order, is limited to no more than the amount paid by Buyer to Seller
under Buyer’s Order, and Seller agrees to indemnify Buyer for any excess amounts. To the extent that this limitation of liability conflicts with any other Section or provision herein, such provision shall be regarded as amended to
whatever extent required to make such provision consistent with this Section.
Whenever Seller has knowledge that any actual or potential labour dispute is delaying or threatens to delay the timely performance of Buyer’s Order, Seller shall immediately give notice to Buyer thereof, including all relevant
information with respect thereto.
Buyer is committed to uncompromising ethical standards, strict adherence to laws and regulations, and customer satisfaction. Seller is encouraged to communicate any concerns or questions regarding the ethics and values of

Act, the Special Economic Measures Act, the Defence Production Act, and the Criminal Code (Canada) as well as all corresponding regulations. Seller hereby agrees to indemnify Buyer for all liabilities, penalties, losses,
damages, costs, or expenses that may be imposed on or incurred by Buyer in connection with any violations of such laws and regulations by Seller.
The performance of the Parties, and any judicial or arbitration proceedings, shall be construed and governed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada, excepting its laws and rules relating to conflict of law.
Neither (a) the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, (b) the 1974 Convention on the Limitation Period in Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (hereinafter referred to as the "1974

The Parties shall attempt to resolve any dispute, controversy, or claim arising under or relating to Buyer’s Order, or to a material breach, including its interpretation, performance, or termination. If the Parties are unable to resolve
such dispute, either Party may refer the dispute to arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted in English and in accordance with the National Arbitration Rules of The ADR Institute of Canada Inc. which shall administer the
arbitration and act as appointing authority. The arbitration, including the rendering of the decision and/or award, shall take place in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, and shall be the exclusive forum for resolving the dispute, controversy,
or claim. The arbitrator shall make the final determination as to any discovery disputes between the Parties. Examination of witnesses by the Parties and by the arbitrator shall be permitted. A written transcript of the hearing shall
be made and furnished to the Parties. The cost of this transcript shall be borne equally by the Parties. The award or decision of the arbitrator shall state the reasons upon which the award or decision is based, and shall be final
and binding upon the Parties. The prevailing Party shall be entitled to compensation for the expense of the arbitration, including, but not limited to, the award of attorneys’ fees, at the discretion of the arbitrator. Both Parties waive
their right to any appeal under any system of law. The award shall be enforceable before any court of competent jurisdiction upon the application to such court by either Party. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award any of
the types of damages excluded by hereunder, and shall be so instructed by the Parties.
Each Party is an independent contractor. Neither Party shall have authority to bind the other except to the extent authorised herein. This Agreement is not intended by the Parties to constitute or create a joint venture, partnership,
or formal business organisation of any kind. The Parties shall act as independent contractors at all times, and neither Party shall act as the agent for the other, and the employees of one shall not be deemed to be employees of
the other.
Buyer’s Order may only be modified by written instrument, signed by duly authorised representatives of the Parties.

method of transmittal, the sending Party is responsible for obtaining a return receipt for the notice.
Neither Party may assign, delegate, sublicense, or transfer, whether by operation of law or otherwise, their obligations or rights hereunder without the other Party’s written consent, and any assignment, delegation, sublicense, or
transfer (a) without such written consent is void and of no effect, and (b) if consent is given, shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Parties. Notwithstanding any provision of these terms
and conditions, Buyer may, without Seller’s consent, assign Buyer’s Order to a parent, subsidiary, or affiliate company of Buyer. In addition, without securing such prior consent, Buyer shall have the right to assign Buyer’s Order to
