No Goods shall be deemed accepted before final inspection by Buyer at the specified destination. No acceptance of any Goods shall be construed to result from any inspections, tests or delays or failures to inspect or test by Buyer. No inspection, test, delay or failure to inspect or test, or failure to discover any defect or noncompliance by Buyer shall relieve Seller of any of its obligations under this Order or impair Buyer's right to reject defective or noncomplying Goods or any other right or remedy of Buyer, even if Buyer knew of the defect or noncompliance, its substantiality or the ease of its discovery.

If Buyer requests Seller to make any such correction and Seller thereafter fails or indicates its inability or unwillingness to do so, then Buyer may correct (or cause to be corrected) the noncompliance by the most expeditious means available to it and charge to or otherwise recover from Seller the cost thereof. If Buyer rejects any Goods that do not comply with the foregoing warranty, Seller shall have a reasonable time to correct the noncompliance, but in no event more than two (2) weeks (“Correction Period”); if Seller fails to correct the noncompliance during that Correction Period , Buyer may cancel this Order as to the noncomplying portion of the Goods or entire Goods without any liability or obligation of, or cost to, Buyer and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies of Buyer with respect to such noncompliance (e.g., as to damages or cover).

Buyer may terminate this Order as to all or any portion of the Goods not then delivered to and accepted by Buyer by giving Seller written notice of such termination. In the event of any such termination, an equitable adjustment shall be made in the prices payable under this Order with respect to the terminated Goods; provided that such adjusted prices shall in no event exceed the total prices otherwise payable under this Order for the terminated Goods, less the sum of (a) the estimated costs (plus a reasonable allowance for profit) which would have been incurred by Seller to complete performance with respect to the terminated Goods and (b) the reasonable value of the terminated Goods at the time of such termination.
