UniFirst First Aid’s failure to object to provisions contained in any purchase order or any other form or document from Customer shall not be construed as a waiver of these terms and conditions nor an acceptance of any such provision. This contract and the terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Missouri.
2. Changes, cancellation. No change by UniFirst First Aid of any term or condition of this contract or any of UniFirst First Aid’s rights or remedies hereunder shall be binding on UniFirst First Aid nor shall the order hereby acknowledged be cancelled or changed by Customer unless UniFirst First Aid shall expressly consent thereto in writing by UniFirst First Aid’s authorized officer. There are no representations, agreements, promises, or understandings between Customer and UniFirst First Aid that are not expressed herein.

UniFirst First Aid reserves the right to make delivery in installments to be separately invoiced and paid for when due in accordance with the invoice, without regard to subsequent deliveries.

Immediately upon Customer’s receipt of the products shipped hereunder, Customer shall inspect the same and shall notify UniFirst First Aid in writing of any claims for shortages, defects, or damages and shall hold the products for UniFirst First Aid’s written disposition.

5. Payment, Taxes. Terms of sale are net 30 days of date of invoice, unless otherwise stated on the face hereof. Products will be billed at the prices in effect at the time shipment is made. If the financial condition of Customer does not justify the terms of payment specified, UniFirst First Aid may demand full or partial payment in advance before proceeding with the delivery of the products. If Customer defaults in any payment when due with respect to any one or more orders for the products, UniFirst First Aid, at its option and without prejudice to its other lawful remedies (including the right of UniFirst First Aid to recover from Customer its expenses incurred in the collection of past due sums owed, including Court costs, attorney’s fees and other related expenses), may defer delivery of the products until payment is received.
