These terms and conditions of sale (these “Terms”) are the only terms which govern the sale of goods (“Goods”) by MycoTechnology, Inc. (“Seller”) to the purchaser of such goods (“Buyer”). The accompanying quotation, confirmation of sale, and/or invoice from Seller (“SalesConfirmation”) and these Terms (collectively, this “Agreement”) comprise the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, written or oral, regarding the sale of Goods.

These Terms prevail over any inconsistent, contrary or additional terms related to the Goods in any purchase order or any other document from Buyer (and this shall serve as Seller’s objection under UCC §2-207(2)(c) to any such terms). Fulfillment of Buyer’s order does not constitute acceptance of any of Buyer’s terms or conditions nor serve to modify or amend these Terms. These Terms may only be amended or modified in a writing that specifically states that it amends these Terms and is signed by an authorized representative of Seller. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if a separate written contract signed by both parties is in existence covering the sale of the Goods covered hereby, the terms and conditions of said contract shall prevail to the extent they are inconsistent with these Terms.
