Home page General Sales Conditions General Sales Conditions 1. DEFINITIONS 1.1. These GENERAL SALES CONDITIONS (GSC) are to be considered as an integral part of each offer and/or proforma confirmation and/or order confirmation of supply of goods issued by Technor Italsmea Spa. 1.2. “Seller” shall mean Technor Italsmea Spa. 1.3. “Buyer” shall mean the person or company who did send the request for quotation or the purchase order to Technor Italsmea Spa. 1.4. “Party(ies)” shall mean the seller and/or the Buyer. 1.5. “Goods” shall mean Products, Services and Documents which are delivered by the Seller to the Buyer in exchange of an agreed payment 2. PURPOSE OF THE CONTRACT 2.1. Under the conditions set forth in the Agreement, the Seller sells to the Buyer, who accepts, the Products. It is understood that the goods and services not specifically mentioned in the Contract, albeit necessary for benefiting or disposing of the Products, are excluded from the Contract itself and will be made available to the Buyer according to the agreed terms and conditions. 2.2. The Contract is composed of these General Sales Conditions. 3. CONTRACT 3.1. The Orders will be considered accepted only after written confirmation of the Order by the Seller (the “Order Confirmation”). If the Seller does not send any Order Confirmation, the Order does not bind the Seller in any way. The sales of the Products will be ruled by the GSC, which will be considered accepted and known by the Buyer from the date of receipt of the Offer or the Proforma Confirmation or the Order Confirmation. The Order and the Order Confirmation together constitute a Contract between the Parties. All agreements between the Parties related to the Products will be exclusively ruled by the Contract. Any change to the GSC will be effective only if accepted in writing by both the Parties. For orders of customized products that imply the acceptance by the Buyer of drawings and specifications prepared and issued by the Seller, the Seller will issue a Proforma Confirmation upon receipt of the order. The order will be considered completely accepted and confirmed by the Seller only after receipt of written acceptance by the Buyer of the drawings and specifications issued by the Seller. Only in that moment, in fact, the Seller will issue a proper Order Confirmation. 4. ORDERS AND DELIVERY TERMS 4.1 The terms and conditions of delivery shall be interpreted in accordance with INCOTERMS 2010 (International Rules for the interpretation of Trade Terms) published by the International Chamber of Commerce in 2000 and its supplements. 4.2 To the extent possible, the Seller shall deliver the Products to the Buyer by the date specified in the Order Confirmation, unless different agreements or waivers will be agreed between the Parties, for whatever reason, after the issuance of the Order Confirmation. The delivery date specified in the Order Confirmation may be subjected to the respect of some conditions mentioned in the same Order Confirmation (e.g. technical drawings approval due date). In the event that the agreed time of delivery cannot be met, the Seller and the Buyer will negotiate in order to agree a new mutually acceptable delivery schedule. 4.3 If there is any conflict and/or inconsistency between the Order Confirmation and the Order, the Buyer shall notify such inconsistencies in writing within five (5) days of receipt of the Order Confirmation. In the absence of such notification, the Order Confirmation will be considered fully approved and accepted by the Buyer. 5.
