c.Other Price Adjustments:
(a)CUSTOMER acknowledges that the Prices set forth in Exhibit A are based on the forecasted volumes provided by CUSTOMER to SANMINA and the projected inventory turns as provided in Exhibit A. In the event CUSTOMER fails to purchase Product in sufficient volumes consistent with the quoted prices, SANMINA reserves the right to bill back CUSTOMER for the difference between the Prices paid and the prices associated with such lower volumes.
(b)CUSTOMER acknowledges that the Prices are based on the Specifications and the assumptions set forth in SANMINA’s quotation and in Exhibit A. In the event SANMINA experiences an increase in cost as a result of changes in the pricing assumptions or the Specifications, SANMINA shall be entitled to the Price adjustment set forth in Section 6.1.
3.  PAYMENT TERMS/SETOFFS/CREDIT LIMIT
a.Payment Terms. Payment terms are net thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice, subject to continuing credit approval. Any pricing or quantity discrepancies must be brought to SANMINA's attention within fifteen (15) days after receiving an invoice. On any invoice not paid by the maturity date, CUSTOMER shall pay interest from maturity to date of payment at the rate of 1.5% per month. Unless otherwise stated, payment shall be made in U.S. Dollars by Electronic Funds Transfer. In the event CUSTOMER has any outstanding invoice beyond the payment term, CUSTOMER will be given two (2) business days notification prior to any stop shipments occurring.
b.Setoffs. Each Party shall be entitled at all times to set-off any amount owing from the other Party to such Party against any amount payable to the other Party from such Party, arising out of this or any other transaction. For purposes hereof, (i) the term "Party" shall include the Parties to this transaction and each Party's Affiliates and (ii) a Party's "Affiliate" shall mean any entity that, directly or through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by or is under common control by such Party, including but not limited to a Party's subsidiaries.
c.Credit Limit. CUSTOMER shall provide completed credit application to SANMINA’s Credit Department. SANMINA shall provide CUSTOMER with an initial credit limit based upon available financial information, which shall be reviewed (and, if necessary, adjusted) from time to time based upon financial updates in order to maintain a credit limit. SANMINA shall have the right to reduce the credit limit upon five (5) days’ prior written notice to CUSTOMER. In the event CUSTOMER exceeds this credit limit, SANMINA shall have the right to stop shipments of Product to CUSTOMER and stop loading new Orders and Forecasts until CUSTOMER makes a sufficient payment to bring its account within the credit limit provided.
d.Security Interest. CUSTOMER grants SANMINA a security interest in the Products delivered to CUSTOMER until CUSTOMER has paid for the Products and all Product-related charges. CUSTOMER agrees to promptly execute any documents requested by SANMINA to perfect and protect such security interest, provided however, that any such security interest shall be subordinate to any security interests in CUSTOMER’S inventory existing at the time of invoice.

e.CUSTOMER guarantees the obligations of each of its Affiliates and any other company that places Orders or Forecasts pursuant to this Agreement, and agrees to be jointly liable for such obligations.
1.PURCHASE ORDERS/FORECAST/RESCHEDULE
a.Purchase Orders.
(a)CUSTOMER will issue to SANMINA specific Orders for Product covered by this Agreement. Each Order shall be in the form of a written or electronic communication and shall contain the following information: (i) the part number of the Product; (ii) the quantity of the Product; (iii) the delivery date or shipping schedule; (iv) the location to which the Product is to be shipped; and (v) transportation instructions. Each Order shall contain a number for billing purposes, and may include other instructions and terms (provided that such terms do not conflict with this Agreement) as may be appropriate under the circumstances.
(b)All Orders shall be confirmed by SANMINA within five (5) business days of receipt. If SANMINA does not accept or reject the Order within the five-day period, the Order shall be deemed rejected by SANMINA unless SANMINA has commenced performance, in which case the Order shall be deemed accepted to the extent of such performance. In the event SANMINA is unable to meet the delivery schedule set forth in a proposed Order, or finds the schedule or Order to be unacceptable for some other reason, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to resolve the disputed matter(s).
b.Forecast; Minimum Buys; Excess and Obsolete Inventory.
(a)Initial Forecast. Ninety days (90) before the expected delivery date of the first Products, CUSTOMER shall provide SANMINA with (i) an initial ninety (90) day firm Order and (ii) a forecast for Product requirements (in monthly buckets) for an additional nine (9) months (“Forecast”). All Orders shall be binding and may be rescheduled only in accordance with Section 4.2(d), or cancelled upon payment of (1) the purchase price of the Product (if the cancellation is made within 30 days of the scheduled delivery date) or (2) the amounts set forth in Section 4.2(f) (if cancellation is made outside of such 30-day period). SANMINA shall make purchase commitments (including purchase commitments for Long Lead-time Components) to its Component suppliers (“Vendors”) based upon the Order and Forecast, and CUSTOMER shall be responsible for all such Components purchased in support of CUSTOMER’s then-current Forecast. For all other purposes, however, the Forecast shall be non-binding.
(b)Subsequent Forecasts. On the first business day of each calendar month after the initial Order and Forecast, the first Forecast month shall automatically become part of the Order, a new Forecast month shall be added, and a new firm Order issued, so that a rolling Order of ninety (90) days is always maintained.
(c)MRP Process.
1.SANMINA shall take the Order and Forecast and generate a Master Production Schedule (“MPS”) for a twelve-month period in accordance with the process described in this Section. The MPS shall define the master plan on which SANMINA shall base its procurement, internal capacity projections and commitments. SANMINA shall use
3

CERTAIN IDENTIFIED INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXCLUDED FROM THIS EXHIBIT BECAUSE IT IS BOTH (I) NOT MATERIAL AND (II) WOULD BE COMPETITIVELY HARMFUL IF PUBLICLY DISCLOSED. THE REDACTED TERMS HAVE BEEN MARKED WITH THREE ASTERISKS [***]


CUSTOMER’s Order to generate the first three (3) months of the MPS and shall use CUSTOMER’s Forecast to generate the subsequent nine (9) months of the MPS.
2.SANMINA shall process the MPS through industry-standard software that will break down CUSTOMER’s Product requirements into Component requirements. When no Product testing (in-circuit or functional testing) is required by CUSTOMER, SANMINA will use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule delivery of all Components to SANMINA eleven business days before the Products are scheduled to ship to CUSTOMER; in the event Product testing is required, SANMINA will use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule delivery of all Components to SANMINA sixteen (16) business days before the Products are scheduled to ship to CUSTOMER.
3.SANMINA will release (launch) purchase orders to Vendors (including other SANMINA facilities) prior to the anticipated date that the Components are needed at SANMINA. The date on which these orders are launched will depend on the lead time determined between the Vendor and SANMINA and SANMINA’s manufacturing or materials planning systems.
4. A list of all Components with lead times greater than ninety days (or the Order period, if the Order period is less than ninety days) (“Long Lead-time Components”) is set forth in Exhibit B to this Agreement and/or has previously been provided to CUSTOMER. SANMINA shall use reasonable efforts to update the list of Long Lead-time Components every quarter and present an updated list of Long Lead-time Components to CUSTOMER at the time SANMINA presents the CUSTOMER with the Excess List and Obsolete List described in Section 4.2(e). Each revised Long Lead-time Item list shall be deemed an amendment to Exhibit B, whether or not it has been formally designated as such. In the event SANMINA fails to present an updated list of Long Lead-time Components, (i) the Parties shall continue to rely on the preceding list (as updated in writing by the Parties) and (ii) CUSTOMER will accept responsibility for Long Lead-time Components ordered outside the lead-times set forth in the list provided that SANMINA can demonstrate to CUSTOMER’s reasonable satisfaction that such Components were ordered in accordance with the then-current Vendor lead-times. (CUSTOMER acknowledges that lead-times constantly change and that SANMINA might not always be able to present CUSTOMER with a current Long Leadtime Component List).
5.CUSTOMER acknowledges that SANMINA will order Components in quantities sufficient to support CUSTOMER’s Forecast.
6.CUSTOMER acknowledges that SANMINA may be required to order Components in accordance with the various minimum buy quantities, tape and reel quantities, and multiples of packaging quantities required by the Vendor. In addition, CUSTOMER acknowledges that there may be a lag time between any CUSTOMER cancellation and the cancellation of the Components required to support production.
7.CUSTOMER acknowledges that the Vendor leadtimes can be significant, and understands that it is possible for SANMINA to have Components on order which would support the last week of CUSTOMER’s Forecast.
(d)Reschedule. CUSTOMER may reschedule all or part of a scheduled delivery (per Order or Forecast) one (1) time per quarter (for a maximum of two (2) quarters) for a period not to exceed forty-five (45) days in accordance with the table below. At the end of this
4

        SANMINA shall use reasonable commercial efforts to accommodate any upside schedule changes beyond the firm Order periods.
        (e) Excess and Obsolete Inventory.
(i)For the purpose of this Agreement,
1.Delivered Cost” shall mean SANMINA’s quoted cost of Components as stated on the bill of materials, [***].
2.“Excess Components” means (a) the Components that SANMINA has on hand, which have been ordered, manufactured, or acquired (in accordance with the requirements of this Section 4) based on CUSTOMER’s then-current Forecast or Orders, but for which CUSTOMER has no demand in the ninety day period following the end of each calendar quarter, and/or (b) inventory that is in excess of the quantity required to maintain the agreed to inventory turns per Exhibit A.
3.Obsolete Components” means: the quantity of Components that SANMINA has on hand, which have been ordered, manufactured, or acquired (in accordance with the requirements of this Section 4) based on CUSTOMER’s then-current Forecast or Order, but which SANMINA no longer requires as a result of (i) CUSTOMER’s announcement or notification that the Product into which such Component is incorporated has reached its end of life (“EOL”), (ii) a change in the specification the Product into which the Component is incorporated as a result of an Engineering Change Notice or otherwise; or (iii) Section 4.2(e)(vii) below.
(ii)Within five (5) business days after receiving CUSTOMER’s first Forecast or Order of the first month following the end of each calendar quarter (but no later than the fifteenth business day following the end of each of SANMINA’s calendar quarters), SANMINA shall advise CUSTOMER in writing of any Excess Components and their Delivered Cost (the “Excess List”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, SANMINA’s failure to timely provide the Excess List to CUSTOMER shall not affect CUSTOMER’s obligations hereunder.
(iii)Within five (5) business days of receiving SANMINA’s Excess List, CUSTOMER shall advise SANMINA of any Component on the Excess List that it believes is not excess, and the Parties shall work together in good faith to resolve any outstanding issues.
5

CERTAIN IDENTIFIED INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXCLUDED FROM THIS EXHIBIT BECAUSE IT IS BOTH (I) NOT MATERIAL AND (II) WOULD BE COMPETITIVELY HARMFUL IF PUBLICLY DISCLOSED. THE REDACTED TERMS HAVE BEEN MARKED WITH THREE ASTERISKS [***]


(iv)Within two (2) business days of CUSTOMER’s issuance of its response to the Excess List, CUSTOMER and SANMINA will agree on the disposition of the Excess List on a part number-by-part number basis (hereafter the “Mutually Agreed Excess”) and shall enter into transactions as defined below to settle the Mutually Agreed Excess.
(v)Within eight (8) business days of the Parties’ agreement on the Mutually Agreed Excess, CUSTOMER will pay SANMINA the amount equal to the Mutually Agreed Excess. SANMINA will credit these funds to the CUSTOMER’s “Offset Inventory Reserve Account” which has been established under this Section 4.
(vi)The Parties shall use the processes set forth in sections (i) through (v) above at the end of each calendar quarter to determine the “new” Mutually Agreed Excess for the end of each subsequent calendar quarter. The Parties will then compare the prior quarter’s Offset Inventory Reserve Account with the “new” Mutually Agreed Excess amount. If the new Mutually Agreed Excess is greater than the Offset Inventory Reserve Account, then CUSTOMER shall, within ten (10) business days, pay the difference to SANMINA, who shall credit the funds to the Offset Reserve Account. If the new Mutually Agreed Excess is less than the Offset Inventory Reserve Account, then SANMINA shall, within ten (10) business days, refund the difference to CUSTOMER.
(vii)Excess Components shall be kept in the offset inventory reserve account for a maximum period of six months, at which time such Excess Components will be deemed to be Obsolete Components, and handled in accordance with Section 4.2(e)(viii) below.
(viii)
1.Within five (5) business days after receiving CUSTOMER’s first Forecast or Order of the first month following the end of each calendar quarter (but no later than the fifteenth business day following the end of each of SANMINA’s calendar quarters), SANMINA shall advise CUSTOMER in writing of any Obsolete Components and their Delivered Cost (the “Obsolete List”). The Obsolete List shall include all former Excess Components which have been deemed Obsolete Components in accordance with Section 4.2(e)(vii) above. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SANMINA’s failure to timely provide the Obsolete List to CUSTOMER shall not affect CUSTOMER’s obligations hereunder.
b. To the extent that any of the amount in the CUSTOMER’s Offset Inventory Reserve Account relates to any Obsolete Component (e.g., the Obsolete Component was formerly included in the Excess List, and CUSTOMER included that Component in its funding of the Offset Inventory Reserve Account), SANMINA shall debit the Offset Inventory Reserve Account in the amount of the Delivered Cost of such Component. In the event the CUSTOMER’s Offset Inventory Reserve Account does not include funding for any Obsolete Component (e.g., the Component was recently rendered obsolete as a result of a design change), SANMINA shall invoice CUSTOMER for the Delivered Cost of the Obsolete Component, CUSTOMER shall pay SANMINA’s invoice within twenty (20) business days after the date of invoice. SANMINA will ship or dispose of the Obsolete Component in accordance with the CUSTOMER’s instructions.
        (f) Customer Component Liability. CUSTOMER acknowledges that it shall be financially liable for all Components ordered in accordance with this Section. Specifically, CUSTOMER’s Component Liability shall be equal to SANMINA’s Delivered Cost of all
6

CERTAIN IDENTIFIED INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXCLUDED FROM THIS EXHIBIT BECAUSE IT IS BOTH (I) NOT MATERIAL AND (II) WOULD BE COMPETITIVELY HARMFUL IF PUBLICLY DISCLOSED. THE REDACTED TERMS HAVE BEEN MARKED WITH THREE ASTERISKS [***]


Components ordered in support of any Order or Forecast, including any excess Components resulting from any minimum buy quantities, tape and reel quantities, and multiples of packaging quantities required by the Vendor less the actual cost (per the bill of materials) of those Components which are returnable to Vendor (less any cancellation or restocking charges). At CUSTOMER’s request, SANMINA shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize CUSTOMER’s Component Liability by attempting to return Components to the Vendor; provided, however, that SANMINA shall not be obligated to attempt to return to Vendor Components which are, in the aggregate, worth less than $1,000.
        (g) Supplier Managed Inventory Program. CUSTOMER acknowledges that the concept of "purchase commitments to a Vendor” (as used in Section 4.2(a) and elsewhere in this Agreement) includes not only SANMINA purchase orders issued to Vendors, but also forecasts (which are based on CUSTOMER’s Forecasts) provided to Vendors in accordance with SANMINA's Supplier Managed Inventory Program ("SMI Program"). Under the SMI Program, SANMINA provides Vendors with forecasts of anticipated Component requirements, and the Vendor is obligated to supply SANMINA with all forecasted Components, but SANMINA does not issue Vendor a purchase order until the Component is actually required by SANMINA for production. However, under the SMI Program, SANMINA is obligated to either consume a sufficient level of the forecasted Components or pay the Vendor for a certain level of unused Components. For the purpose of this Agreement, CUSTOMER's Component Liability (pursuant to 4.2(f) above) shall include the cost of any required Vendor payments under the SMI Program as well as any Components actually ordered from the Vendors based on CUSTOMER's Forecast.
8.DELIVERY AND ACCEPTANCE
a.Delivery. All Product shipments (including shipments made in accordance with Section 7 “Warranty”) shall be FCA SANMINA's facility of manufacture or repair (Incoterms 2010). Title to and risk of loss or damage to the Product shall pass to CUSTOMER upon SANMINA’s tender of the Product to the common carrier. SANMINA will clear shipments for export and CUSTOMER shall be the importer of record for all shipments of Products, including any repaired or replacement Products. SANMINA shall mark, pack, package, crate, transport, ship and store Product to ensure (a) delivery of the Product to its ultimate destination in safe condition, (b) compliance with all requirements of the carrier and destination authorities, and (c) compliance with any special instructions of CUSTOMER. SANMINA shall use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver the Products on the agreed-upon delivery dates and shall notify CUSTOMER of any anticipated delays; provided, however that SANMINA shall not be liable for any failure to meet CUSTOMER delivery dates and/or any failure to give notice of anticipated delays.
b.Acceptance. Acceptance of the Product shall occur no later than fifteen (15) days after shipment of Product and shall be based solely on whether the Product passes a mutually agreeable acceptance test procedure or inspection designed to demonstrate compliance with the Specifications. Product cannot be rejected based on criteria that were unknown to SANMINA or based on test procedures that SANMINA has not approved or does not conduct. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Product shall be deemed accepted if not rejected within this fifteen-day period. Once a Product is accepted, all Product returns shall be handled in accordance with Section 7 (Warranty). Prior to returning any rejected Product, CUSTOMER shall obtain a Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) number from SANMINA, and shall return such Product in accordance with SANMINA’s instructions; CUSTOMER shall specify the reason for such
7

CERTAIN IDENTIFIED INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXCLUDED FROM THIS EXHIBIT BECAUSE IT IS BOTH (I) NOT MATERIAL AND (II) WOULD BE COMPETITIVELY HARMFUL IF PUBLICLY DISCLOSED. THE REDACTED TERMS HAVE BEEN MARKED WITH THREE ASTERISKS [***]


rejection in all RMA’s. In the event a Product is rejected, SANMINA shall have a reasonable opportunity to cure any defect which led to such rejection.
9.CHANGES
a.General. CUSTOMER may upon sufficient notice make changes within the general scope of this Agreement. Such changes may include, but are not limited to changes in (1) drawings, plans, designs, procedures, Specifications, test specifications or bill of material (“BOM”), (2) methods of packaging and shipment, (3) quantities of Product to be furnished, (4) delivery schedule, or (5) Customer-Furnished Items. All changes other than changes in quantity of Products to be furnished shall be requested pursuant to an Engineering Change Notice (“ECN”) and finalized in an Engineering Change Order (“ECO”). If any such change causes either an increase or decrease in SANMINA's cost or the time required for performance of any part of the work under this Agreement (whether changed or not changed by any ECO) the Prices and/or delivery schedules shall be adjusted in a manner which would adequately compensate the Parties for such change.
b.ECN’s. SANMINA will respond to one ECN request per month without a non-recurring administrative fee; responses to additional ECN's will incur an administrative fee of $1,000 each. Within five (5) business days after an ECN is received, SANMINA shall advise CUSTOMER in writing (a) of any change in Prices or delivery schedules resulting from the ECN and (b) the purchase price of any Finished Product, Work-in-Process (including value-add and applicable mark-ups), and the Delivered Cost of any Component rendered excess or obsolete as a result of the ECN (collectively the “ECN Charge”). Unless otherwise stated, ECN Charges are valid from thirty (30) days from the date of the ECN Charge.
c.ECO’s. In the event CUSTOMER desires to proceed with the change after receiving the ECN Charge pursuant to Section 6.2, CUSTOMER shall advise SANMINA in writing and shall immediately pay the portion of the ECN Charge set forth in Section 6.2(b). In the event CUSTOMER does not desire to proceed with the Change after receiving the ECN Charge, it shall so notify SANMINA. In the event SANMINA does not receive written confirmation of CUSTOMER’s desire to proceed with the change within thirty days after SANMINA provides CUSTOMER with the ECN Charge, the ECN shall be deemed cancelled.
10.WARRANTY
a.SANMINA Warranty. SANMINA warrants that, for a period of one year from the date of manufacture of the Product, the Product will be free from defects in workmanship. Products shall be considered free from defects in workmanship if they are manufactured in accordance with the latest version of IPC-A-600 or IPC-A-610 and successfully complete any mutually agreed product acceptance test. SANMINA shall, at its option and at its expense (and as CUSTOMER’s sole and exclusive remedy for breach of any warranty), repair, replace or issue a credit for Product found defective during the warranty period. In addition, SANMINA will pass on to CUSTOMER all Vendors’ (and manufacturers’) Component warranties to the extent that they are transferable, as well as manage such warranties on CUSTOMER’s behalf, but does not independently warrant Components. All warranty obligations will cease upon the earlier of the expiration of the warranty period set forth above or the return (at CUSTOMER’s request) of any test equipment or test fixtures. ALL CLAIMS FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY MUST BE RECEIVED BY SANMINA NO LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE EXPIRATION OF THE WARRANTY PERIOD.

b.RMA Process. SANMINA shall concur in advance on all Products to be returned for repair or rework. CUSTOMER shall obtain a RMA number from SANMINA prior to return shipment. All returns shall state the specific reason for such return, and will be processed in accordance with SANMINA's RMA process. SANMINA shall pay all transportation costs for valid returns of the Products to SANMINA and for the shipment of the repaired or replacement Products to CUSTOMER, and shall bear all risk of loss or damage to such Products while in transit; CUSTOMER shall pay these charges, plus a handling charge, for invalid or “no defect found” returns. Any repaired or replaced Product shall be warranted as set forth in this Section for a period equal to the greater of (i) the balance of the applicable warranty period relating to such Product or (ii) sixty (60) days after it is received by CUSTOMER. Notwithstanding the foregoing language in paragraph 7.2, CUSTOMER is required to inspect 100% of certain returned units. SANMINA and Customer shall negotiate in good faith in an effort to reach a separate agreement for the inspection, troubleshooting (where a defect is found) and ultimate disposal of all returned units. All cost associated with the inspection, troubleshooting and disposal of such units shall be the responsibility of CUSTOMER, except where otherwise provided herein (such as a catastrophic failure).

c.Exclusions from Warranty. This warranty does not include Products that have defects or failures resulting from (a) CUSTOMER's design of Products including, but not limited to, design functionality failures, specification inadequacies, failures relating to the functioning of Products in the manner for the intended purpose or in the specific CUSTOMER's environment; (b) accident, disaster, neglect, abuse, misuse, improper handling, testing, storage or installation including improper handling in accordance with static sensitive electronic device handling requirements; (c) alterations, modifications or repairs by CUSTOMER or third parties or (d) defective CUSTOMER-provided test equipment or test software. CUSTOMER bears all design responsibility for the Product.
d.Remedy. THE SOLE REMEDY UNDER THIS WARRANTY SHALL BE THE REPAIR, REPLACEMENT OR CREDIT FOR DEFECTS AS STATED ABOVE. THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTIES EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. SANMINA DOES NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTIES REGARDING MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY SUCH WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. COMPLIANCE WITH “ROHS”, “WEEE”, “REACH” AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL LEGISLATION WORLDWIDE SHALL BE AS AGREED BY THE PARTIES.
11.CUSTOMER FURNISHED EQUIPMENT AND COMPONENTS
a.Customer-Furnished Items. CUSTOMER shall provide SANMINA with the Product design and related specifications, applicable regulatory requirements, equipment, tooling, Components or documentation set forth in Exhibit C (collectively the “Customer-Furnished Items”). CUSTOMER hereby represents and warrants that the Customer-Furnished Items are or will be fit for the purposes CUSTOMER intends, meet all applicable regulatory requirements, and will be delivered to SANMINA in a timely manner. Documentation (including BOM’s, drawings and artwork) shall be current and complete. CUSTOMER shall be responsible for schedule delay, reasonable inventory carrying charges, and allocated equipment down time charges associated with the incompleteness, late delivery or non-delivery of Customer-Furnished Items.

b.Care of Customer-Furnished Items. All Customer-Furnished Items shall remain the property of CUSTOMER. SANMINA shall clearly identify all Customer-Furnished Items by an appropriate tag and shall utilize such Customer-Furnished Items solely in connection with the manufacture of CUSTOMER’s Product. SANMINA shall not make or allow modifications to be made to Customer-Furnished Items without CUSTOMER’s prior written consent. SANMINA shall be responsible for reasonable diligence and care in the use and protection of any Customer-Furnished Items and routine maintenance of any Customer-Furnished equipment, but shall not be responsible for repairs or replacements (including servicing and calibration to the equipment) unless such failure was caused by SANMINA’s negligence or willful misconduct. Provided that CUSTOMER is current in its payments to SANMINA, all Customer-Furnished Items shall be returned to CUSTOMER at CUSTOMER's expense upon request. SANMINA’s production and warranty obligations which require the utilization of the returned Customer-Furnished Items will cease upon SANMINA’s fulfillment of CUSTOMER’s request.
c.Customer-Furnished Components. Customer-furnished Components shall be handled in accordance with the applicable SANMINA manufacturing facility’s procedures regarding Customer-Furnished Material.
12.INDEMNIFICATION AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
a.SANMINA’s Indemnification. SANMINA shall indemnify, defend, and hold CUSTOMER and CUSTOMER's affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers, employees, contractors, agents and other representatives (the “Customer-Indemnified Parties”) harmless from all third party demands, claims, actions, causes of action, proceedings, suits, assessments, losses, damages, liabilities, settlements, judgments, fines, penalties, interest, costs and expenses (including fees and disbursements of counsel) of every kind (“Claim(s)” (i) based upon personal injury or death or injury to property (other than damage to the Product itself, which is handled in accordance with Section 7 “Warranty”) to the extent caused by the negligent or willful acts or omissions of SANMINA or its officers, employees, subcontractors or agents, and/or (ii) arising from or relating to any actual or alleged infringement or misappropriation of any patent, trademark, mask work, copyright, trade secret, or any actual or alleged violation of any other intellectual property rights arising from or in connection with SANMINA’s manufacturing processes.
b.CUSTOMER’s Indemnification. CUSTOMER shall indemnify, defend, and hold SANMINA and SANMINA's affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers, employees, contractors, agents and other representatives (the “SANMINA-Indemnified Parties”) harmless from all third party Claims (i) based upon personal injury or death or injury to property to the extent caused by a defective Product (other than Claims covered by Section 9.1), or by the negligent or willful acts or omissions of CUSTOMER or its officers, employees, subcontractors or agents, and/or (ii) arising from or relating to any actual or alleged infringement or misappropriation of any patent, trademark, mask work, copyright, trade secret or any actual or alleged violation of any other intellectual property rights arising from or in connection with the Products, except to the extent that infringement occurs as a result of use by CUSTOMER of SANMINA’s manufacturing processes.
c.Procedure. A Party entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Section (the "Indemnitee") shall promptly notify the other Party (the "Indemnitor") in writing of any Claims covered by this indemnity. Promptly after receipt of such notice, the Indemnitor shall assume the defense of such Claim with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee. If the Indemnitor
10

CERTAIN IDENTIFIED INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXCLUDED FROM THIS EXHIBIT BECAUSE IT IS BOTH (I) NOT MATERIAL AND (II) WOULD BE COMPETITIVELY HARMFUL IF PUBLICLY DISCLOSED. THE REDACTED TERMS HAVE BEEN MARKED WITH THREE ASTERISKS [***]
