GENERAL CONDITIONS OF SALE AND DELIVERY OF CHRYSAL INTERNATIONAL BV (“GCSD”), COC NR 32029274

Article 1 Applicability of the Conditions

  1. These GCSD shall apply to any and all offers for the sale and delivery of products and services that are made by Chrysal International BV, hereafter “the Supplier”, and any contract or agreement between the Supplier and a customer (hereafter “the Customer”) and any delivery of products or services rendered by the Supplier (hereafter referred to as “Products” and “Services” respectively), unless explicitly agreed otherwise in writing.
  2. For the purpose of the GCSD “the Customer” shall mean: any individual or legal entity who/that either directly or via its representative has entered into or wishes to enter into an agreement for the sale and delivery of products and/or services with the Supplier, its representatives, agents, assigns or successors.
  3. The placement of a purchase order or an assignment implies the total and unconditional acceptance by the Customer of the GCSD. The provisions of the GCSD will prevail over any brochures, catalogues, and/or informative documents issued by the Supplier.
  4. The GDSD shall take precedence over any general (purchase) conditions of the Customer. Any provision included in the Customer’s documentation subsequent to the Supplier’s commercial offer or purchase order which modifies the GCSD shall be considered null and void, unless specifically otherwise agreed in writing by the Supplier.
  5. To the extent that any provision of the GCSD or the application thereof to any Customer, person or entity is held to be inconsistent with any present or future law, rule, ruling or regulation of any court or governmental or regulatory authority having jurisdiction over the subject matter, such provision shall be deemed to be modified to the minimum extent necessary to comply with such law, rule, ruling or regulation, and the remainder of the provisions hereof or their application except as to those as to which it is held inconsistent, shall not be affected. If any provision hereof is determined by a court, or governmental or regulatory authority having jurisdiction to be illegal, unenforceable or void, and if the remainder of the provisions shall not be affected by such determination and is capable of substantial performance, then such void provision shall be deemed rescinded and each provision not affected shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law.

Article 2 Offers and Orders

  1. All offers made by the Supplier, in any form whatsoever, are non-binding, unless otherwise expressly stated by the Supplier in writing including by electronic mail, (“in writing” or “electronic mail” here after referred to as “in writing”).
  2. The Supplier shall have no obligations towards the Customer, unless the Supplier has accepted or confirmed an agreement, an order or an assignment in writing, the date of confirmation being conclusive.
  3. With respect to agreements, arrangements, purchase orders, or assignments that due to their nature or magnitude are not confirmed in writing, the invoice is deemed to correctly and completely represent the transaction, unless the Customer notifies the Supplier to the contrary in writing within 10 days after receipt of the invoice. Such acceptance of the invoice by the Customer, also confirms the total and unconditional acceptance by the Customer of the GCSD.
  4. The Supplier shall have the right to refuse purchase orders without stating its reasons.

Article 3 Prices and Payment

  1. The Products and Services shall be sold at the prices stated in the Supplier’s price list applicable at the time of delivery, unless explicitly agreed differently in writing.

      delivery;

    • –  exclusive of costs of standard packaging;
    • –  exclusive of VAT
    • –  stated in Euro.
  3. The Supplier shall have the right to increase the price as stated in the pricelist referred to in article 3.1 or as agreed also after the date a contract was concluded or an order was accepted, if prior to delivery the Supplier’s costs have risen as a result of, including but not limited to, increases of duties, levies, value added tax, excise duty, production costs, labour costs, currency fluctuations, prices for raw material, costs of registration, Customer requests etcetera.
  4.

5. Notwithstanding the provisions of article 3.4, the Supplier shall at all times be entitled to demand cash on delivery, or to require that the Customer upon acceptance of the order by the Supplier grant security in any form the Supplier deems appropriate, at its discretion for the performance by the Customer of any of its obligations in connection with or ensuing from the contemplated transaction.

6. If the Customer fails to make timely payment of amounts due to Supplier after expiration of payment terms extended to Customer by Supplier, the Customer automatically and without notice or presentment shall be deemed to be in default, and default interest shall accrue and become due on the amounts due as of the date of such default until fully paid at an interest rate of 1% per month or at the highest interest rate allowed by law (if higher than 1%).
