In the case of conflict between the body of this proposal and the Buyers purchase order, the terms and conditions of this proposal shall prevail. From time to time it may be necessary, and we reserve the right, to substitute materials for those originally ordered, however the substitute material and/or components will have comparable properties and characteristics and will be suitable for performing the functions for which the equipment was purchased.
Buyer will be advised of any major substitutions for approval prior to doing so. The terms and conditions of this proposal may be modified only when agreed to by the Seller in writing.
