In the event of inability, for any reason, to supply the total demands for the material specified in Buyer's order, Seller may allocate its available supply among any or all purchasers, as well as departments and divisions of seller, on such basis as Seller may deem fair and practical without liability for failure or performance which may result there from.

In this case and if Buyer only is interested in the simultaneous delivery of all goods ordered, Buyer is allowed to cancel the total order.

No charges or expenses incident to any claims will be allowed unless approved by an authorized representative of Seller. Products shall not be returned to Seller without Seller's permission. The remedy hereby provided shall be the exclusive and sole remedy of the Buyer; and right of the Buyer to consequential damages is excluded.
