Any such proposed term(s) shall not operate as a rejection of this PO or otherwise affect the validity of the binding obligations hereunder. If this PO is deemed an acceptance of a prior offer by Supplier, such acceptance is limited to the terms and conditions expressly contained in this PO and this PO shall supersede all prior offers, discussions and/or agreements relating to the subject matter of this PO. UTAC shall be entitled to cancel, vary or withdraw this PO prior to the unconditional acceptance of this PO by Supplier.
