Our General Terms and Conditions of Sale shall exclusively apply to all contracts between us and our clients. Any differing conditions or terms of buyer are herewith objected to and shall not apply. Any agreement affecting the execution of this contract must be in writing.
2. Offer and conclusion of contract
Samples and catalogues are to be considered non-binding material for illustration and/or test purposes, giving only an approximation of properties and specification.
The weight, volume or gage of the goods measured upon shipment is valid.
3. Price of the Goods
Prices valid at date of delivery will be applied.
We reserve the right to adapt prices, for confirmed orders as well, to reflect any increase in our costs, for any reason beyond our control, like force majeure, shortage of primary material or labor, strikes, official orders, transportation or similar problems, if this increase happens after confirmation of order but before delivery of goods.
4. Terms of Delivery
Confirmed delivery dates are not fixed dates, unless stated otherwise.
We reserve the right to postpone delivery in the case of force majeure for the duration of the obstruction plus a reasonable period of recuperation. Should delivery have become impossible by an act beyond our control we reserve the right to partially or completely rescind the contract.
Strikes, unforeseeable events or interruptions of operations are considered force majeure, should we have no influence over these events. Failure to comply by a supplier only gives us the right to rescind the contract, if a replacement deal was made and failed to comply.
We reserve the right to partial deliveries unless the client has no interest in them.
Unless failure to comply or delay of delivery was caused by us, our lawful representatives or auxiliary persons by gross negligence or intentional acts, we will not be liable for noncompliance. Should we be liable under the terms aforementioned, liability is limited to damages that occur foreseeable and typically under the circumstances.
Unless agreed otherwise, delivery is made from the seller’s premises. Goods travel at cost and danger of client, unless agreed otherwise.
5. Terms of payment
Unless agreed otherwise, our invoices are to be paid immediately upon receipt of merchandise and invoice. Should client fail to comply within 30 days, he will automatically be in default of payment. Payment is considered made when it is at our disposal. Detention of payments or balancing of payments against claims of buyer against seller is not allowed, unless these claims are undisputed or legally established. The aforementioned paragraph does not apply to buyers who are neither entrepreneurs nor statutory persons.
If buyer fails to make payment by due date, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the seller, we are entitled to charge the buyer interest on the unpaid amount.
Should there be reasons to doubt the solvency or credit standing of the client, we reserve the right to demand securities or prepayment for any outstanding delivery or declare immediate maturity of all outstanding claims.
6. Items may be returned if in re-sellable condition, returned within one week, and unless it is a special order, a chemical product, which would have a non returnable status.
