No change in the sales price shall become effective unless Seller provides written acceptance of the change.
  5. TERMS OF PAYMENT.
    • 5.1  Payment shall be made in the manner and at the time or times set forth in the Equipment Sales Contract.

In addition, if Seller employs a commercial credit agency with reference to collection of any payment due, Purchaser agrees to reimburse Seller for all costs and expenses paid or incurred thereby.
    • 5.2  If any payment shall remain in arrears and unpaid after the date when the same shall become due, then, and in any such event, all payments due to Seller, together with all unpaid interest, shall immediately at any time thereafter at the option of Seller become due and payable on demand.

    • 6.1  Delivery shall be made at the time or times set forth in the Contract of Sale. Seller shall not be responsible for any failure or delay in delivery or any failure of performance or completion of its obligations under the Contract of Sale if such failure or delay is due, in whole or in part, to: any act or omission of Purchaser; any directions of Purchaser; actual operating or manufacturing conditions; any cause beyond Seller’s control; fire; mobilization; requisition; embargo, currency or import restrictions; insurrection; shortage of labor, transport or materials; restrictions in the use of power; government restriction; accident or casualty; pandemic or epidemic labor disputes; force majeure or Acts of God.
