Unless otherwise agreed in a separate written agreement signed by Baanto International Ltd (“Baanto”) and Buyer, Baanto offers to sell products (“Products”) and/or provide services (“Services”) solely on these terms and conditions (these “Terms”) and any acceptance is expressly limited to these Terms. If Buyer has ordered Products or Services from Baanto (an “Order”) and such Order is deemed to be an offer by Buyer, acceptance by Baanto of such offer is expressly conditional on assent by Buyer to these Terms. Any additional, different, or conflicting terms proposed by Buyer in any offer, acceptance, or confirmation (including any Buyer purchase order or specifications) are requests for material alterations of these Terms and are hereby rejected and will not be binding in any way on Baanto, unless and until Baanto accepts such alterations by a written agreement signed by Baanto. Baanto hereby notifies Buyer of its objection to all such additional, different, or conflicting terms and conditions. Acceptance of, or payment for, any Products or Services by Buyer will constitute Buyer’s assent to and acceptance of these Terms. These Terms do not constitute an obligation of Baanto to sell Products or Services to Buyer. Baanto reserves the right to accept or reject any Order from Buyer to the maximum extent permitted by law. All Orders shall be in writing, clearly stating the billing address and contact information of the Buyer. Orders may be delivered, mailed, couriered, faxed, or sent by any form of electronic data exchange approved by Baanto. Each Order shall identify the Products, the quantity to be purchased and a shipment date, and any special requests, and in respect of Services, the Services required.
