Seller may then sell such Products, with or without notice, at private or public sale at which Seller may purchase, and the proceeds of such sale, less expenses or retaking, repairing, holding and reselling, will be applied to the unpaid purchase price without release of any deficiency, which deficiency (if any) shall be promptly paid by Buyer. Any surplus above the unpaid balance shall however be remitted by Seller to Buyer.

Buyer agrees to familiarize itself (without reliance on Seller except as to the accuracy of special safety information actually furnished by Seller), with any hazard of such materials and their applications and the containers in which such materials are shipped. Buyer agrees to train its employees and its customers as to such hazards. Buyer agrees to hold Seller harmless against any claims by Buyer or its employees or customers based on allegations relating to any such hazards except where such claims are based on failure to meet written specifications or the inaccuracy of specific safety information actually furnished by Seller.
