Application

These conditions regard all sales contracts stipulated between the seller and buyer, and annul any previous contrasting conditions set down by the buyer. Not fulfillment of one or more of these conditions, for any reason, will not effect the validity and effectiveness of the other conditions. These conditions must be accepted fully and unconditionally and be specifically approved with reference to the order, except on written agreement signed by the seller.

Quotations, offers and orders

Quotations and Offers made by the seller, both verbal and written, are not considered as binding. Orders taken by the seller are only intended as valid after they have been confirmed in writing. Orders taken by our representatives are only valid with our acceptance or confirmation, except on written agreement signed by the seller. Data, measurements, articles, prices, characteristics, performance and all other data included in our catalogues, price lists, prospectuses, circulars, etc. are indicative; they may vary without prior notice and are only binding for us when an express indication of acceptance or confirmation of that particular data has been made. Any drawing or technical document relating to the seller’s products, even if returned to the client, remain the seller’s exclusive property and the client cannot use, copy, reproduce, transmit or communicate to third parties, without previous written authorization.

Price

All prices quoted by the seller are subject to change and shall be quoted in euros (EUR) without VAT. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, cost estimates shall be created without any guarantee for accuracy. Prices appearing in the price list are intended as “goods packed according to standard internal procedures” and packaging or means of protection provided to avoid damage or deterioration to materials in normal transit conditions, are invoiced at cost price and may not be returned. Any special or personalized packaging will be carried out on request. Prices in force at the moment of delivery will be applied: intended for goods within the limit of the seller’s available stock. Prices are calculated on the basis of the cost of raw materials, material components, cost of labour: in the presence of variations, the prices may undergo modifications without obligation of forewarning.

Delivery

Delivery terms which appear in the offer and order confirmation are purely indicative and are not binding for the seller. The seller is, under no circumstances, bound to reimburse the buyer for direct or indirect damage due to late delivery or due to total or partial interruption of supply. The buyer cannot cancel the order, in whole or in part, because of unfulfilled delivery terms.

Transport

Goods travel at the risk of the buyer or addressee, in so much that they are considered as sold in the factory, unless other written indications exist. goods are never insured by us for transport, unless expressly requested in writing by the client who will be responsible for the charge. As our packaging is carried out in a professional way, if goods are damaged in transit, claims for reimbursement must be made to the transport company. Tests are carried out in the factory during normal working hours, according to the systems used in the sector industry; these tests may be carried out at the installation site only with our express authorization and after written notification of the testing date being given in advance. All tests carried out on the initiative of the client are not considered valid for us, if not carried out in the presence of seller’s technician.

Payment

Payment shall be made to the seller’s bank account stated on issued documents, whatever the established price. Payment is due according to the agreed terms even in the case of delayed delivery, damage to goods in transit or partial or total loss in transit, as well as in the case in which the goods are to be transported by the buyer, and will remain uncollected. All payments must be made in Euros. Bills of exchange or other agreed methods of payment do not result in modifications or derogations of this norm. In the case of extended payment, the unfulfillment of an expiry date will result in automatic forfeiture of the payment method, the request for immediate payment of the entire sum, the start of overdue interest and of monetary revaluation according to the EU index.

Order Suspension and Cancelation

If one of the sales conditions is not respected, even only in part, or when there is a variation, of any kind, in the commercial capacity of the buyer, the seller has the right to suspend any further deliveries. Independent of the above circumstance, the seller has the right to reduce his credit limits towards the buyer (if such exist) whenever the general market conditions vary or whenever facts or circumstances intervene of such a nature as to influence the normal working of the buyer’s activity. The seller does not carry inventory products. All manufacturing is done by order. Orders cancelled by the buyer can be subject to a cancellation charge. Cancellation charges:

Additional costs, damages, interest or compensation other than described in this document will not be accepted. Any claims made by the buyer within the maximum term of 24 months from the issue of the invoice, our products having been recognized by us as defective can be only replaced by us or our certified partner. However, our responsibility is limited to defects which manifest themselves in normal working conditions and during correct use of our products. The guarantee does not apply if the buyer has not paid the supplier, if products or their identification data has been tampered with or modified, if the use and or installation of the products do not conform to the instructions, effective regulations and common trade standards or if the products have not undergone regular and correct maintenance. The parts subject to normal deterioration due to wear are not included in the guarantee. Deviations of the delivered product from that which was ordered, such as incorrect dimensions or the wrong product (incorrect delivery), must be reported within 3 days of delivery and before any resale and/or further working or processing is undertaken. Otherwise, the product shall be deemed accepted and may not be returned or exchanged. All advice provided by seller, whether orally or in writing, is not binding and does not release the Customer from the obligation to inspect the product to check for their suitability for the intended purpose. Seller does not warrant that products in subsequent deliveries will be an exact match for those in the first delivery. Excluded is any warranty for disposable parts, such as filters, filter elements, anodes and electrical parts, circulation pumps, electric immersion heaters, valves and plate heat exchangers (for example, due to scaling, corrosion, dry run, unsuitable water quality) or parts installed on site. In cases of doubt, compliance with water quality regulations per the nationally applicable standard must be demonstrated by the product user End customer. In the case of tanks, the anti-corrosion anode must be shown to have been maintained. In addition, we point out that flying rust particles can occur on all parts exposed to the atmosphere.
