A. Revocation. The Agreement supersedes all previous quotations and agreements pertaining to the Goods. Delivery to Seller of Buyer's acceptance of Seller's quotation (according to its terms), Seller's actions in reliance on Buyer's oral acceptance of a written or oral quotation, or Buyer's receipt of the Goods, will constitute a binding contract under the terms of the Agreement.
B. Complete Integration. The Agreement is a final, complete and exclusive statement of the Agreement of Buyer and Seller. An order or an amendment submitted by Buyer orally or in a purchase order or other writing (whether or not it contains terms or conditions modifying, adding to, or inconsistent with these General Terms), may be accepted, approved or filled by Seller, but any resulting contract and the liabilities or obligations of Seller will be determined solely by the Agreement, and (unless Seller otherwise advises Buyer in writing) notice is given that Seller objects to any such terms or conditions in Buyer's purchase order or other document or communication.

A course of performance, course of dealing, or custom in the trade will not modify or waive any right of Seller.
D. Parties. The Agreement is only for the benefit of Buyer and Seller, except all disclaimers and limitations applicable to Seller will be also for the benefit of Seller's affiliates, agents, employees, contractors, and suppliers.
