1. SCOPE AND DEFINITIONS
The terms and conditions of sale set forth herein ("Terms and Conditions") apply to all sales by Revisor GmbH, Solingen ("Seller") of its services and products (collectively, "Products"), except in the case that a separate written agreement has been negotiated between Seller and you ("Buyer").
2. ORDERS AND ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS
All orders must be initiated by written purchase orders and will not be binding on Seller until approved and accepted by Seller in writing. Seller's acceptance of Buyer's order is conditioned on Buyer's unqualified assent to the Terms and Conditions set forth herein in lieu of any terms and conditions in Buyer's purchase order. Seller hereby rejects any term, provision or condition in Buyer's purchase order or other communication in conflict with, or purporting to add to or modify these Terms and Conditions and any such term, provision or condition shall be deemed stricken. Any such term, provision or condition shall not be binding upon Seller unless and until such term, provision or condition is accepted in writing by an officer of Seller.
3. TITLE AND DELIVERY; ALLOCATION OF PRODUCTS
Title to Products and the risk of loss or damage to any Products shall pass to Buyer upon delivery of Products to the carrier at Seller's facility. Provided that Seller receives all necessary information from Buyer, Seller will make reasonable efforts to meet the delivery dates identified on Seller's acceptance form. Seller shall not be liable for delay in delivery due to shortages in energy, components, raw materials or supplies, acts of God, labour unrest, fire, flood, explosion or earthquake. If any such delay occurs, the date of delivery shall automatically be extended for a period equal to the time lost by reason of the delay. If Seller, for any reason, has insufficient supplies of Products to meet future demand or accepted orders, Seller reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to allocate the available Products among its customers, and make partial deliveries of Products to Buyer and invoice for them separately, which shall not relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept other parts of its order. In any event, Seller shall not be in default for any failure to deliver Products to Buyer unless Seller does not begin to cure such failure within ten (10) days after receipt from Buyer of written notice of failure to deliver. If Seller so defaults, Buyer's sole remedy for such default shall be cancellation of the applicable order. Seller shall have no other liability to Buyer as a consequence of any such default.
4. ACCEPTANCE OF PRODUCTS
Use of the Products by Buyer, its agents, employees or licensees, or the failure by Buyer to return the Products within fourteen (14) days following delivery of such Products shall constitute acceptance by the Buyer.
5. PRICES AND PAYMENTS
All prices quoted are exclusive of transportation, insurance, taxes (including VAT), duties and other charges related thereto. Such charges, when applicable, will appear as separate additional items on the invoice. No discounts whatsoever are authorized unless and until Buyer and Seller have expressly agreed in writing to a discount. Prior to Buyer's establishment of an account with Seller, payment is due upon receipt of invoice. Even after Seller's acceptance of an order, shipments or deliveries will at all times be subject to Seller's approval and Seller may at any time decline to make any shipments or deliveries until receipt of payment or upon terms and conditions or security satisfactory to Seller. All overdue amounts shall bear interest at the maximum rate permitted by law. Payments due hereunder shall not be subject to any set-off for claims by Buyer. Seller reserves the right to declare all sums immediately due and payable and to cancel any order or shipment, without liability to Buyer, in the event of Buyer's breach of a material obligation hereunder, including without limitation failure to comply with credit terms. Until such time as title to the products passes to Buyer, Buyer shall hold the products as Seller's fiduciary agent and bailee, shall keep the products separate and identifiable as those of Seller, and shall at its own expense immediately return the products to Seller or permit Seller and/or its representatives to repossess the products should Seller so request.
