7.1.2. Any mutually agreed upon Order Form shall be deemed an integral part of these Terms of Service, and these Terms of Service shall apply thereto. In the event of a conflict between these Terms of Service and the applicable Order Form, the terms of the applicable Order Form shall prevail solely if (a) the applicable Order Form expressly identifies and supersedes or modifies a specific provision in these Terms of Service; and (b) the applicable Order Form is signed by an authorized signatory of both parties.
