This written confirmation by EISENHARDT, irrespective of its form, shall count as conclusive evidence of what has been agreed (price, quality, delivery terms, payment terms), unless Seller immediately raises objections to the written confirmation. The mere making of an offer by EISENHARDT shall not bind EISENHARDT, unless EISENHARDT has expressly stated otherwise in writing.
