These Terms and Conditions are the only terms and conditions, oral or written, applying to the sale of Products to Buyer except for additional terms consistent with these Terms and Conditions on prices, quantities, shipping or delivery schedules, and the description of the Products as set forth in an order form issued by or accepted in writing by Jackson (“Order”).  Jackson hereby objects to and rejects any other terms or conditions appearing on, incorporated by reference in or attached to any purchase order, acceptance, acknowledgement, invoice, transmittal or other document, including any such document provided by Buyer. Jackson’s failure to object to any provision contained in any order form, document or communication from Buyer shall not be a waiver of these Terms and Conditions or any Order.  All proposals, negotiations, representations, quotations or agreements, if any, written or oral, regarding the sale of any Products and made prior to or contemporaneous with the date of these Terms and Conditions are merged herein.  Acceptance of these Terms and Conditions and any Order, both or either of which may be delivered to Buyer in electronic form by Jackson shall be deemed to have occurred upon the earlier of (i) executing or accepting these Terms and Conditions, (ii) executing or accepting any Order, (iii) when Buyer is aware that Jackson has commenced performance thereunder or (iv) taking delivery of any Products.
