  15. Patents and Copyrights. In no event shall JTECH be liable for damages arising from infringement of patents or copyrights.

The foregoing shall be Buyer’s exclusive remedy against JTECH with respect to any alleged patent or Copyright infringement. The sale of goods does not convey any license of copyright under any proprietary or patent rights of any manufacturer. JTECH shall not have any liability if the alleged infringement is based upon the use or application of the Goods in combination with other Goods and Buyer shall protect, defend, and indemnify JTECH therefrom. JTECH disclaims all other liability for infringement of intellectual property rights and further disclaims any liability for incidental or consequential damages arising in connection with such infringement.
  16. Manufacturer Liability.

  17. Credit Terms. All orders and shipments shall at all times be subject to the approval of JTECH’s credit department. JTECH reserves the right of declining to make any shipment called for by the contract between seller and buyer whenever, for any reason, there is doubt in JTECH’s sole judgment, as to buyer’s willingness or ability to pay for the goods ordered on Buyer’s solvency and JTECH shall not, in such event, be liable for breach or nonperformance of this Agreement in whole or in part.
  18. Packaging. Packaging will be standard commercial package and acceptable to commercial carriers. Special customer packaging will be furnished only when specified and so stated herein and the cost thereof shall have been agreed to by both the Buyer and JTECH in writing.
  19. Substituted or Repaired Goods. If substitute additional or repaired goods are purchased by Buyer from JTECH, the terms and conditions of this proposal and resultant Agreement shall be applicable thereto, the same as if such substituted, additional or repaired Goods had been originally purchased hereunder unless specifically stated to the contrary in this proposal or subsequent resultant Agreement.
  20. General Conditions. No agent, salesman or other party is authorized to bind JTECH to any agreement, warranty, statement, promise or understanding not expressed herein. The sale of Goods pursuant to this proposal and any subsequent resultant Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida. Any notice that is required under the terms of a resultant Agreement shall be in writing and delivered to the address of the party set forth in the Agreement and shall be effective when actually received. The remedies reserved by the parties shall be cumulative and in addition to other remedies provided by law. JTECH shall not be required to proceed with the performance of any obligation under a resultant Agreement so long as Buyer is in default or in breach of any of Buyer’s obligations or agreements herein. Any clerical errors are subject to correction. No delay or omission by JTECH in exercising any right or remedy under that agreement shall constitute a waiver of such right or remedy. The waiver, invalidity or unenforceability of any provision in a resultant Agreement shall not affect the validity of the agreement as a whole or any other provisions herein. An Agreement resulting from this proposal shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of Buyer and JTECH.
