2.2. In response to a quotation issued by CesiumAstro at Customer’s request, or otherwise as permitted on or through CesiumAstro’s website or by CesiumAstro’s personnel, Customer may submit a binding offer to purchase specified materials, goods, products and/or services of CesiumAstro (“Products”) by (1) submitting a signed Purchase Order or other written offer to CesiumAstro for the purchase of such Products, and (2) by signed written agreement to the GTCs (in each such case, a “Customer Offer”).

2.5. Regardless of whether CesiumAstro and Customer enter into an Agreement for the relevant Products, Customer shall be solely responsible for the fees and costs of any drawings, sketches, samples, calculations or simulations, and any other work or services performed by CesiumAstro in connection with any offer by, or negotiations with Customer, to the extent any of the same are requested by Customer and/or deemed appropriate by CesiumAstro. CesiumAstro shall invoice Customer at CesiumAstro’s standard rates for any such fees and costs, and any such fees and costs shall be due and payable by Customer to CesiumAstro as otherwise specified under Section 5 promptly upon(but in no event later than 14 days after) Customer being invoiced by CesiumAstro.
