2. Application of Conditions

ER shall sell and the Buyer shall purchase Goods in accordance with any quotation or offer of ER which is accepted by the Buyer, or any order of the Buyer which is accepted by ER; and these Terms and Conditions shall govern the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions subject to which any such quotation is accepted or purported to be accepted by ER, or any such order is made or purported to be made, by the Buyer

 

3. Basis of Sale

ER’s employees or agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless confirmed by the ER in writing. In entering into the Contract the Buyer acknowledges that it does not rely on, and waives any claim for breach of, any such representations which are not so confirmed. No variation to these Conditions shall be binding unless agreed in writing between the authorised representatives of the Buyer and Evolution Rotacasters. Sales literature, price lists and other documents issued by ER in relation to the Goods are subject to alteration without notice and do not constitute offers to sell the Goods which are capable of acceptance. No contract for the sale of the Goods shall be binding on ER unless ER has issued a quotation which is expressed to be an offer to sell the goods or has accepted an order placed by the Buyer by whichever is the earlier of: ER’s written acceptance; delivery of the Goods; or ER’s invoice. Any typographical, clerical or other accidental errors or omissions in any sales literature, quotation, price list, acceptance of offer, invoice or other document or information issued by ER shall be subject to correction without any liability on the part of ER

 

4. Orders and Specifications

No order submitted by the Buyer shall be deemed to be accepted by ER unless and until confirmed in writing by ER’s authorised representative. The specification for the Goods shall be that set out in ER’s sales documentation unless varied expressly in the Buyer’s order (if such variation(s) is/are accepted by ER). The Goods will only be supplied in the minimum units thereof stated in ER’s price list or in multiples of those units. Orders received for quantities other than these will be adjusted accordingly. Illustrations, photographs or descriptions whether in catalogues, brochures, price lists or other documents issued by ER are intended as a guide only and shall not be binding on ER. ER reserves the right to make any changes in the specification of the Goods which are required to conform with any applicable safety or other statutory or regulatory requirements or, where the Goods are to be supplied to the Buyer’s specification, which do not materially affect their quality or performance. No order which has been accepted by ER may be cancelled by the Buyer except with the agreement in writing of ER on the terms that the Buyer shall indemnify ER in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs (including the cost of all labour and materials used), damages, charges and expenses incurred by ER as a result of such cancellation

 

5. Price

The price of the Goods shall be the price listed in ER’s Price List current at the date of acceptance of the Buyer's order or such other price as may be agreed in writing by ER and the Buyer. Where ER has quoted a price for the Goods other than in accordance with ER's published price list the price quoted shall be valid for 30 days only or such lesser time as ER may specify. ER reserves the right, by giving written notice to the Buyer at any time before delivery, to increase the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost to ER which is due to any factor beyond the control of ER (including, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture), any change in delivery dates, quantities or specifications for the Goods which are requested by the Buyer, or any delay caused by any instructions of the Buyer or failure of the Buyer to give ER adequate information or instructions. Except as otherwise stated under the terms of any quotation or in any ER price list, and unless otherwise agreed in writing between the Buyer and ER, all prices are exclusive of ER’s charges for packaging and transport. The price is exclusive of any applicable value added tax, excise, sales taxes or levies of a similar nature which are imposed or charged by any competent fiscal authority in respect of the Goods, which the Buyer shall be additionally liable to pay to ER

 

6. Payment

All payments to ER shall be made to ER via BACS or cash. With regards to sales of Evolution rotational casting machines, the Buyer is required to pay 50% of the total value of the order to confirm the order, the balance being payable prior to delivery. With regards to sales of Acrylic One materials, sales of material shall be on a pro forma basis unless a credit account with the Buyer has been set up. In the case of credit accounts the Buyer shall pay the price of the Goods (less any discount or credit allowed by ER, but without any other deduction credit or set off) within 30 Working Days of the date of ER’s invoice. Payment shall be made on the due date notwithstanding that delivery may not have taken place and/or that the property in the Goods has not passed to the Buyer. The time for the payment of the price shall be of the essence of the Contract. Receipts for payment will be issued only upon request. ER is not obliged to accept credit orders from any customer or buyer who has not supplied ER with references satisfactory to ER. If at any time ER is not satisfied as to the creditworthiness of the Buyer it may give notice in writing to the Buyer that no further credit will be allowed to the Buyer in which event no further goods will be delivered to the Buyer other than against full cleared payment and all amounts owing by the Buyer to ER shall be immediately payable

 

7. Delivery

Delivery of the Goods shall be made by ER delivering the Goods to the place in the United Kingdom specified in the Buyer’s order and/or ER’s acceptance as the location to which the Goods are to be delivered. The Delivery Date is approximate only and time for delivery shall not be of the essence unless previously agreed by ER in writing. The Goods may be delivered by ER in advance of the Delivery Date upon giving reasonable notice to the Buyer. Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by ER to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Terms and Conditions or any claim by the Buyer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Buyer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated. If the Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods or any part of them on the Delivery Date and/or fails to provide any instructions, consents or authorisations required to enable the Goods to be delivered on that date, ER shall be entitled upon giving written notice to the Buyer to store or arrange for the storage of the Goods and then notwithstanding the provisions of Clause 10 risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer, delivery shall be deemed to have taken place and the Buyer shall pay to ER all costs and expenses including storage and insurance charges arising from such failure

 

8. Non-Delivery

If Goods cannot be delivered or Services rendered by any estimated or target Delivery Dates given by ER, ER may elect to cancel the order and refund any money paid by the Buyer. If the delay of delivery is not due to gross negligence or intent on ER’s side, ER is solely liable to refund any money paid by the Customer to ER; right for damages based on delay in such an event is excluded. The buyer must notify ER of any failed delivery within five Working Days of the agreed Delivery Date

 

9. Inspection/Shortage

9.1 The Buyer is under a duty whenever possible to inspect the Goods on delivery or on collection as the case may be. Where the Goods cannot be examined the carrier’s note or such other note as appropriate shall be marked “not examined”. ER shall be under no liability for any damage or shortages that would be apparent on reasonable careful inspection; if the provisions of this Clause 9 are not complied with and, in any event, will be under no liability if a written complaint is not delivered to ER within 5 Working Days of delivery detailing the alleged damage or shortage. In all cases where defects or shortages are complained of ER shall be under no liability in respect thereof unless an opportunity to inspect the Goods is supplied to ER before any use is made thereof or any alteration or modification is made thereto by the Buyer

9.2 Subject to sub-Clause 9.1 ER shall make good any shortage in the Goods and where appropriate replace any Goods damaged in transit as soon as it is reasonable to do so, but otherwise shall be under no liability whatsoever arising from such shortage or damage

 

10. Risk and Retention of Title

10.1 Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods shall pass to the Buyer at the time of delivery

10.2 Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, or any other provision of these Terms and Conditions, legal and beneficial title of the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until ER has received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the price of the Goods and all packaging and delivery costs and also any other goods otherwise supplied by ER and the Buyer has repaid all moneys owed to ER, regardless of how such indebtedness arose. Until payment has been made to ER in accordance with these Conditions and title in the Goods has passed to the Buyer, the Buyer shall be in possession of the Goods as bailee for ER and the Buyer shall store the Goods separately and in an appropriate environment, shall ensure that they are identifiable as being supplied by ER and shall insure the Goods against all reasonable risks

10.3 In the event that the Buyer sells or transfers the Goods to a third party before legal and beneficial title has passed to him under these Terms and Conditions, the proceeds of the sub-sale or transfer (or such proportion as is due to ER) shall be held by the Buyer on behalf of ER. The Buyer shall ensure that such moneys are held separately from, and are in no way mixed with, any other moneys or funds, and that all moneys held on ER’s behalf are identified as such. The Buyer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods which remain the property of ER, but if the Buyer does so all money owing by the Buyer to ER shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of ER) forthwith become due and payable

10.4 ER reserves the right to repossess any Goods in which ER retains title without notice. The Buyer irrevocably authorises ER to enter the Buyer’s premises during normal business hours for the purpose of repossessing the Goods in which ER retains title or inspecting the Goods to ensure compliance with the storage and identification requirements of sub-Clause 10.2

10.5 The Buyer’s right to possession of the Goods in which ER maintains legal and beneficial title shall terminate if the Buyer commits or permits any material breach of his obligations under these Conditions; the Buyer enters into a voluntary arrangement under Parts I or VIII of the Insolvency Act 1986, the Insolvent Partnerships Order 1994 (as amended), or any other scheme or arrangement is made with his creditors; the Buyer is or becomes the subject of a bankruptcy order or takes advantage of any other statutory provision for the relief of insolvent debtors; the Buyer convenes any meeting of its creditors, enters into voluntary or compulsory liquidation, has a receiver, manager, administrator or administrative receiver appointed in respect of its assets or undertaking or any part thereof, any documents are filed with the court for the appointment of an administrator in respect of the Buyer, notice of intention to appoint an administrator is given by the Buyer or any of its directors or by a qualifying floating charge-holder (as defined in Schedule B1 of the Insolvency Act 1986), a resolution is passed or petition presented to any court for the winding up of the Buyer or for the granting of an administration order in respect of the Buyer, or any proceedings are commenced relating to the insolvency or possible insolvency of the Buyer

12. Defective Goods

12.1 If on delivery any of the Goods are defective in any material respect and either the Buyer lawfully refuses delivery of the defective Goods or, if they are signed for on delivery as “condition and contents unknown” the Buyer gives written notice of such defect to ER within 10 Working Days of such delivery, ER shall at its option: replace the defective Goods within 10 Working Days of receiving the Buyer’s notice; or refund to the Buyer the price for those Goods(or parts thereof, as appropriate)which are defective; but ER shall have no further liability to the Buyer in respect thereof and the Buyer may not reject the Goods if delivery is not refused or notice give by the Buyer as set out above

12.2 No Goods may be returned to ER without the prior agreement in writing of ER. Subject thereto any Goods returned which ER is satisfied were supplied subject to defects of quality or condition which would not be apparent on inspection shall either be replaced free of charge or, at ER’s sole discretion ER shall refund or credit to the Buyer the price of such defective Goods but ER shall have no further liability to the Buyer

12.3 ER shall be under no liability in respect of any defect arising from fair wear and tear, or any wilful damage, negligence, subjection to normal conditions, failure to follow ER’s instructions (whether given orally or in writing), misuse or alteration of the Goods without ER’s prior approval, or any other act or omission on the part of the Buyer, its employees or agents or any third party.
