("EDS") to the customer listed in the attached letter (the "Buyer"), covering the tools, parts and/or services specified (collectively the "Tools"), upon the terms and conditions and at the price stated herein. This Quotation shall be valid until the date set forth in the Quotation. This Quotation supersedes all previous quotations and agreements relating to this transaction. A contract will be formed (the "Agreement") in accordance with the terms of this Quotation upon the execution of the attached letter by the Buyer.
- Modification of Terms and Conditions. No terms and conditions other than those stated in the Quotation, and no agreement or understanding, in any way purporting to modify these terms and conditions, shall be binding on EDS without EDS' written consent.
- Prices, Payment. Unless otherwise stated in this Quotation, all invoices for Tools shipped by EDS to the United States are due and payable within thirty (30) days from date of shipment and all invoices for Tools shipped by EDS to outside of the United States shall be issued and paid prior to shipment by EDS of the Tool to the Buyer. All prices are stated in U.S. Dollars. The stated prices do not include shipping costs, insurance costs, customs, duties or taxes such as sales, use, excise, retailer’s occupation, or similar taxes. Buyer is responsible for the payment of all such applicable costs, fees and taxes, unless Buyer provides to EDS the appropriate Tax Exemption Certificate. Prices are exclusive of expenses related to special packing or procedures to cover unique circumstances of shipment or storage unless specifically noted. The Buyer shall obtain and supply to EDS any necessary export documents.
The Buyer hereby agrees to pay interest on all late fees at the rate of 1½% per 30-day period or the maximum allowed by law, whichever is lower.

Shipments will be insured in the amount of the new replacement value of items shipped, unless otherwise stated in this Quotation.
