This right applies even if credit has been extended, notes have been accepted, trade acceptances have been made, or payment has been guaranteed. If payment is not made, the customer is liable for all collection costs incurred.
LIABILITY: (16A) Disclaimer of Express Warranties – Provider warrants that the finished product is as described in the purchase order.

This will apply regardless of responsibility for negligence. (17A) Copyrights – The customer also warrants that the subject matter to be printed is not copyrighted by a third party.

The provider reserves the right to use his or her sole discretion in refusing to print anything he or she deems illegal, libelous, scandalous, improper or infringing upon copyright law.
STORAGE: The provider will retain intermediate materials until the related end product has been accepted by the customer. If requested by the customer, intermediate materials will be stored for an additional period at additional charge. The provider is not liable for any loss or damage to stored material beyond what is recoverable by the provider’s fire and extended insurance coverage.
TAXES: All amounts due for taxes and assessments will be added to the customer’s invoice and are the responsibility of the customer.
