These Terms and Conditions, the attendant quotation or acknowledgment and all documents incorporated by specific reference therein,
will be the complete and exclusive statement of the terms of the agreement governing the sale of products ("Products") by Simply
Automated, Incorporated ("Seller") to its customer ("Customer"). If a contract is not earlier formed by mutual agreement in writing,
Customer’s acceptance of Products will manifest Customer’s assent to these Terms and Conditions. All contracts for the sale of
Products shall be construed under and governed by the law of the location of Seller's plant from which the Products are shipped.
CUSTOMER'S TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Seller desires to provide its Customers with prompt and efficient service. However, to negotiate individually the terms and conditions of
each sales contract would substantially impair Seller’s ability to provide such service. Accordingly, Products and services furnished by
Seller are sold only on the terms and conditions stated herein. Notwithstanding any terms or conditions on Customer's order, Seller's
performance of any contract is expressly made conditional on Customer's agreement to Seller's Terms and Conditions of Sale unless
otherwise specifically agreed to in writing by Seller. In the absence of such agreement, commencement of performance and/or delivery
shall be for Customer's convenience only and shall not be deemed or construed to be acceptance of Customer's terms and conditions
or any of them.

the face hereof. In the case of a conflict between the terms and conditions stated herein and those appearing on the face hereof, the

notice. (b) UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING, ALL QUOTATIONS ARE FIRM FOR A PERIOD OF THIRTY (30) DAYS

the transportation company at the EXW point, whether or not installation is provided by or under supervision of Seller. Confiscation or
destruction of, or damage to Products shall not release, reduce or in any way affect the liability of Customer therefore. Notwithstanding
any defect or nonconformity, or any other matter, such risk of loss or damage shall remain in Customer until the Products are returned
at Customer’s expenses to such place as Seller may designate in writing. Customer, at its expense, shall fully insure Products against
all loss or damage until Seller has been paid in full therefor, or the Products have been returned, for whatever reason, to Seller. All

law, regulation or order, whether valid or invalid, of any cognizant governmental body or any instrumentality thereof whether now
existing or hereafter created. Performance shall be deemed suspended during and extended for such time as any such circumstances
or causes delay its execution. Whenever such circumstances or causes have been remedied, Seller will make and Customer shall

applicable Government regulations. In the absence of such regulations Seller reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to allocate

deemed accepted by Customer unless notice of defect or nonconformity is received within ten (10) days of delivery thereof, provided
that Products for which Seller agrees in writing to provide installation by its personnel, shall be deemed accepted by Customer upon
completion by Seller of its applicable acceptance tests or execution of Seller's acceptance form by Customer. Notwithstanding the
