You must agree to these Conditions before you are able to proceed with your transaction. By selecting the check-box below, you confirm that you have read and agree to these Conditions governing your purchase of Parts using the OPS.
1. Conditions Applicable
1.1 All sales of Parts by the Dealer through the OPS are made on the terms of these Conditions, and such terms only, and all Purchase Orders for the Parts shall be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase the Parts upon the terms of these Conditions (and the Dealer shall be entitled to disregard any term in such Purchase Order which is inconsistent with any of such terms). These Conditions shall be deemed incorporated and form a part of each Purchase Order, and shall apply to and govern the arrangement between you and the Dealer with respect to the sale of the Parts (and all matters incidental thereto) to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions, including any terms or conditions which you may purport to apply under any Purchase Order or any other document whatsoever.

5.10 The Dealer reserves the right, by giving written notice to you at any time before delivery of Parts purchased pursuant to an Individual Contract, to increase the price of such Parts to reflect any increase in the cost to the Dealer in sourcing, obtaining and appropriating Parts to enable the Dealer to supply the same to you pursuant to such Individual Contract, which is attributable to any factor beyond the reasonable control of the Dealer, including but not limited to:
