Delivery, claims and delays
All sales are F.O.B. Sellerís shipping point unless otherwise noted.

Unless otherwise specified by the customer, the seller reserves the right to make delivery in installments, all such installments to be separately invoice and paid for when due per invoice, without regard to subsequent deliveries.

If buyer shall fail to so notify seller within five days after the goods have been received by the buyer, such goods shall conclusively be deemed to conform to the terms and conditions hereof and to have been irrevocably accepted by the buyer.
