On or before the 10th day of the 3rd month of every quarter "OEM Partner" will forecast pre-build inventory to support quarter end orders which will detail the Appliances to be manufactured by Patriot Technologies and purchased by "OEM Partnerís" customers. Patriot Technologies understands that the Forecast is an estimate of quantities required. "OEM Partner" will have no minimum volume commitment hereunder apart from the commitment established by its Orders in accordance with this Section 3.7. "OEM Partner" may order Appliances by submitting to Patriot Technologies a purchase order (the "Order") containing, at a minimum, the following: date, purchase order number, ship to address, Appliance/product, part number, quantity, cost, requested shipping method, and requested ship date. "OEM Partner" may place such Orders by mail, facsimile, or email, as "OEM Partner" chooses. "OEM Partner" may submit Orders along with "OEM Partnerís" standard purchase order or other contractual terms; provided, however, that any preprinted terms on "OEM Partnerís" standard purchase order or such other contractual terms will not apply to any transaction between the parties unless such terms are contained in a written document signed by authorized representatives of both parties. All Orders are subject to Patriot Technologies' written acceptance, which will be in Patriot Technologies' sole discretion, and will be deemed rejected unless "OEM Partner" receives written notice of Patriot Technologies' acceptance thereof; provided, however, that Patriot Technologies agrees to accept any "OEM Partner" Order that complies with Patriot Technologies' published lead times and terms of this agreement.

          (b) Acceptance. After receipt of a Finished Goods shipment, OEM Partner or its customer shall have forty-five (45) days (the "Acceptance Period") in which to inspect and accept or reject the shipment for conformity to the applicable Specifications. If OEM Partner determines that any Finished Goods fails to conform to the applicable Specifications, OEM Partner will be entitled to reject the Finished Goods during the Acceptance Period by giving Patriot Technologies written notice containing sufficient details of such nonconformity; provided, however, that any unit not rejected by written notification to Patriot Technologies within the Acceptance Period will be deemed accepted. As Patriot Technologies' sole and exclusive obligation for any rejected Finished Goods, Patriot Technologies will provide a return material authorization number and ship a newly manufactured replacement Finished Goods to OEM Partner or customer. In the event of a miscount in a delivery, OEM Partner will notify Patriot Technologies of such miscount within five (5) days after OEM Partner's receipt of such delivery and such miscount will not be a basis for rejection; provided, however, that in the case of an over-shipment, OEM Partner will be entitled to return, at Patriot Technologies' expense and risk of loss, any units in excess of the quantities ordered by OEM Partnerís; and in the case of an under-shipment, Patriot Technologies will promptly ship the remaining balance of ordered Finished Goods units.
