 2.       PRICE AND EXTRA CHARGES - Seller represents and agrees that all prices quoted and charges for goods and/or work provided hereunder are not in excess of Seller's list, catalog or published prices nor any price recently quoted or charged to any other customer of Seller for similar quantities of goods and/or work.  Seller's prices shall not be higher than stated on the purchase order unless agreed to in writing by Purchaser.  The prices on the purchase order are exclusive of all city, state and federal excise taxes and transportation charges.  Unless otherwise stated herein, and subject to Paragraph 3 (Packing, Marking and Shipping), transportation costs may be added to the invoice as additional charges to be paid by Purchaser.

 5.       CONFIDENTIALITY - Seller shall not without first obtaining Purchaser's written consent disseminate the fact that Seller has furnished or has contracted to furnish Purchaser with goods and/or work covered hereunder, nor, except as is necessary for the performance of this purchase order, shall Seller disclose any of the details connected with this purchase order to third parties.
