(i) is not an acceptance of Buyer’s purchase order, (ii) will not be construed as assent to such contrary or additional terms and conditions, and (iii) will not constitute a waiver by Globex International Inc. of any of the terms and conditions contained herein. Acceptance of this Sales Contract will be made by the earlier of either: (1) Seller’s receipt of a copy of this Sales Contract signed by the Buyer or (2) the Buyer’s acceptance of delivery of the product described in the Sales Contract.

Seller’s failure to insist upon performance by Buyer of any of the Terms and Conditions of this Sales Contract, Seller’s failure to exercise any right or privilege under this Sales Contract, and Seller’s waiver of any breach by Buyer under this Sales Contract, shall not constitute a waiver of any other terms, conditions, rights, privileges, or breaches.

The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York shall have exclusive jurisdiction to decide any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, and each party irrevocably submits to the personal jurisdiction of that court for such purpose.

Each of the rights and remedies reserved unto Seller herein by the Sales Contract is cumulative and in addition to any other or further rights and remedies available under law, equity or this Sales Contract. Globex International Inc.’s failure to insist upon the Buyer’s performance of any of the Terms and Conditions of this Sales Contract, its failure to exercise any right or privilege granted hereunder, or its waiver of any breach of this Sales Contract does not thereafter waive any other terms, conditions, privileges or breach(es), whether of the same or similar type. Any waiver is effective only when in writing and signed by Globex International Inc. Whenever possible, each Term and/or Condition of this Sales Contract shall be interpreted in such a way so as to be effective and valid under applicable law. Should any Term or Condition hereof be invalidated and/or rendered ineffective under applicable law, said Term and/or Condition will be ineffective only to the extent of such invalidity, without affecting invalidating or rendering ineffective the remaining Terms and Conditions of this Sales Contract.
