General Terms & Conditions of Sales
1.1 The following conditions of delivery and payment together with the “Incoterms 2000” set down by the International Chamber of Commerce shall be exclusively binding for business relations with our customers when deliveries of our products are made. They shall be considered as accepted by the purchaser unless immediately repudiated by him in writing. No alterations to the terms of this contract shall be binding upon the seller unless, and until, confirmed by him in writing. Verbal agreements shall only be binding for both parties if they are confirmed in writing.
2. BASIS OF PURCHASE
2.1 Conditions of purchase contained on the Customer’s order forms and any other conditions which the Customer may seek to impose which are at variance with or additional to these Conditions are not binding upon Airfilter Engineering unless specifically accepted in writing.
2.2 The employees or agents of Airfilter Engineering are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless confirmed by Airfilter Engineering in writing. In entering into the Contract the Customer acknowledges that it does not rely on, and waives any claim for breach of, any such representations which are not so confirmed.
2.3 No order which has been accepted by Airfilter Engineering may be cancelled by the Customer except with the agreement in writing of Airfilter Engineering and on terms that the Customer shall indemnify Airfilter Engineering in full against all loss as a result of cancellation.
3.1 On delivery, the invoice shall contain the prices and currencies stipulated in the respective contract.
4.1 Time not of essence. Although given in good faith, times quoted for the delivery of Goods are intended as estimates only and are not therefore to be treated as the essence of the Contract. Accordingly Airfilter Engineering shall not be liable in any way for any direct or indirect loss damage or expense (including loss of profits and liability to third parties) which may be suffered by the Customer in consequence of late despatch or delivery from whatever cause.
4.2 Force Majeure. Airfilter Engineering shall not be liable for failure to deliver Goods or to do so promptly if such failure is caused by strikes, riots, lock-outs or other labour trouble, war, fire, accident, mechanical failure, non-availability or delay in delivery to Airfilter Engineering of supplies of goods or parts or materials, government action, legalisation or regulation of any kind Act of God or any circumstances whatsoever outside our reasonable control and such delay or failure to deliver such Goods shall not affect the obligations of the Customer to pay for Goods already delivered.
4.3 Instalments. Airfilter Engineering reserves the right to deliver the Goods in partial shipments and each delivery shall constitute a separate contract. Failure by Airfilter Engineering to deliver any one or more instalment in accordance with these Conditions or any claim by the Customer in respect of any one or more instalment shall not entitle the Customer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
4.4 Storage. If the Customer does not supply adequate delivery instructions within 14 days after notification that the Goods are ready for dispatch Airfilter Engineering shall be entitled to arrange storage either at our own works or elsewhere and all reasonable charges for storage, insurance or demurrage shall be payable by the Customer. PROVIDED THAT nothing in this condition shall operate to relieve the Customer from making payment for the Goods ordered.
4.5 No claim for damage in transit, shortage of delivery or loss of goods will be entertained unless in such case, a separate notice in writing is given to the carrier concerned and to the seller promptly but latest within 3 days of the receipt of goods, followed by a complete claim in writing within 7 days of receipt of goods. Where goods are accepted from the carrier concerned without being checked, the delivery book of the carrier concerned must be signed, “not examined”. Depending upon the terms of delivery, claims must be directed either to the carriers, the insurers or Airfilter Engineering.
