This Purchase Order (“PO”) is ORDERING COMPANY’s offer to Supplier to purchase the goods or services at prices listed on the face of this PO (“Material”). Acceptance by Supplier is expressly limited to the terms of this offer. Supplier may accept ORDERING COMPANY’s offer by commencement of performance hereunder or by timely written acknowledgement of this Order. However, if Supplier's acceptance is by commencement of performance such act shall constitute an acceptance by Supplier to the terms and conditions contained herein; provided, however, that ORDERING COMPANY reserves the right to treat its offer as having lapsed before acceptance unless LSI is notified of such acceptance within a reasonable time.
All terms on Supplier’s order acknowledgment, invoice, or other documents issued by Supplier shall be null and void and are hereby objected to and rejected by ORDERING COMPANY. This PO, including any documents incorporated herein by express reference, is intended to be a complete integration and there are no prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings pertaining to the subject matter of this Order.
Upon Supplier's acceptance, ORDERING COMPANY shall only be bound by this PO and this PO shall be the complete and exclusive statement of the terms and conditions between the parties and shall not be modified or interpreted by reference to any prior course of dealing, usage of trade, or course of performance. No modification of this PO shall be effective or become binding upon ORDERING COMPANY unless such modification is signed by an authorized ORDERING COMPANY Purchasing Representative.

6. INVOICING, TAXES, AND PAYMENT.
For each shipment of goods or completion of services, Supplier shall submit an original invoice marked "Original" and one copy marked "Copy" to ORDERING COMPANY’s Accounts Payable Department at the address specified on the face of this PO.

In addition to its other remedies, ORDERING COMPANY may, at Supplier's expense, require prompt correction or replacement of any goods and services failing to meet Supplier's warranty herein. Goods and services corrected or replaced by Supplier shall be subject to all of the provisions of this Purchase Order in the manner and to the same extent as goods and services originally furnished hereunder.
