If Seller breaches the terms of this section, Buyer may immediately terminate this order without any liability.
  25. Conflict Minerals. Buyer has represented to its customers that it is not purchasing conflict minerals from the areas defined by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Accordingly, Seller may not supply tin (cassiterite), tantalum (columbite), tungsten (wolframite), gold and/or any other "conflict mineral" as defined by Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, in order to fulfill Buyer's order, if those minerals have been derived from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries, without notifying Buyer of that fact prior to initiating production and obtaining Buyer's prior written approval to initiate production under those circumstances. In those instances where Seller does notify Buyer as noted above and obtains Buyer's prior written approval, Seller must complete Buyer's "Conflict Mineral Survey Form" to the satisfaction of Buyer prior to processing Buyer's order.
