GENERAL CONDITIONS OF SALE AND DELIVERY
effective from 1st September, 2011
All our offers, sales and deliveries are subject exclusively to the following conditions, unless anything to the contrary has been confirmed by us in writing. Business conditions of the Buyer which conflict with present conditions will become the part of the current contract only if they are accepted expressly and in writing by us.
2. Acceptance of Order
All offers issued by us are open for acceptance for the period stated in the offer, or if none is stated, for thirty days. Orders are considered accepted by us, if we have submitted to the Buyer a written confirmation, or executed the delivery implicitly.
Any amendments, cancellations or other modifications of orders by the Buyer are subject to their acceptance by the manufacturer.
Our prices are to be understood net and exclusive of VAT in the currency agreed upon. For overseas customers prices are ex-works.
The goods are shipped for account and risk of Buyer, even if transport charges are being borne by us, or delivered free of charge. We shall not be liable for any loss occurred during transportation. All forwarding instructions are to be given with the order. However, we have the right to choose the route and the means of transportation, unless otherwise agreed. Any warranty for the quickest and cheapest transportation are explicitly excluded. Special fees for express deliveries, effected on the Buyer’s request, shall be at the Buyer's expense. International Commercial Terms such as FOB., CIF., C and F. etc. are to be interpreted according to the INCOTERMS, 2010.
Delivery dates are indicated in good faith, however we reserve the right to alter the delivery date notifying the Buyer as soon as possible. We do not accept liability for any direct or indirect loss or damage due to the eventual delay in delivery howsoever caused.
Where the goods are supplied by us in returnable containers they must be returned to us at the Buyer's expense in good condition within the period specified by us in writing.
Containers are hired out - unless otherwise agreed - for 30 days free of charge, after this period a specified charge - subject to the type of the container - is to be paid.
7. Reservation of Title
We retain ownership of the goods until such time as the Buyer has completely fulfilled all his obligations from the current business transaction toward us, such ownership is retained notwithstanding delivery to the Buyer. If under the law of the country in which the goods are located reservation of title is not permitted, we are entitled to demand an equivalent security from the Buyer.
Complaints arising out of material defects or inadequate quantities so far as this can be discovered by a reasonable examination, must be submitted together with the evidences in writing immediately and in the case of apparent defect within 15 days after receipt of the consignment at the latest. If the complaint is justified, shortages will be rectified by further delivery, or the goods will be replaced. If the rectification or replacement would be either impossible or also defective, we shall, at our choice, either take back the goods, repay the purchase price or grant an appropriate rebate. Further claims are explicitly excluded. In case of hidden defects, which cannot be detected upon receipt of the goods complaints must be submitted within the expiry period stated in the analytical certificate or on the label, and where no expiry period is stated, within 30 days from the receipt of the consignment.
9. Force Majeure
We do not assume any responsibility for non-deliveries, delays or losses in general caused by any circumstances beyond our reasonable control including but not limited to any strike, lock-out, shortage of energy or raw materials, war, unavoidable breakdown, authorities' orders or regulations, including but not limited to any economic sanction imposed under a resolution approved by the Security Council of the United Nations, the US or the EU, which render the execution of a particular contract in part or in full impossible. All the aforementioned occurrences entitle us to withdraw from the contract wholly or in part without the Buyer having any right to compensation.
10. Special conditions for custom synthesis
We retain the right to revise the quoted price and/or deadline based on the preliminary synthesis experiments not later than the half-time of the expected synthesis duration counted from the confirmation of the firm order till the quoted delivery date. The Buyer has the right either to accept the amendment or to withdraw the order.
We retain the right to terminate the contract in case we are not able to fulfil it due to unexpected, unavoidable technical problems during the synthesis procedure.
The elaborated synthesis rout is the intellectual property of SyTracks unless otherwise agreed in written form.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, payment of all invoices shall be made to us net and in full amount without any bank deduction in the currency invoiced through remittance in advance. If agreed in writing by both side previously remittance within 30 days from the date of the invoice is acceptable. Depending on the value of the goods delivered irrevocable, confirmed L/C might be required. In case of delay in payment on part of the Buyer, we reserve the right either
a) to demand an adequate security for payment, or
b) to levy interest for default on the unpaid amounts at the usual international rate, or
c) to suspend the deliveries and/or cancel any of our outstanding obligations.
