Raritan shall have no liability for, and Purchaser shall not be excused from payment for, late shipments, unless otherwise agreed.

Purchaser agrees to take any and all actions necessary to comply with applicable US export laws and regulations and other applicable foreign laws with respect to the Products shipped to it, including, in the case of a reseller Purchaser, making determinations of final destination of Products if it has reason to believe a Product may be re-exported or transferred to a location outside of the United States.

Purchaser agrees not to export or re-export Products to countries subject to applicable embargoes or which have export restrictions based on anti-terrorism considerations or to any person or entity on the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Persons List or on the U.S. Department of Treasury's lists of Specially Designated Nationals, Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers or Specially Designated Terrorists.
