Commercial relations between DTI srl and customers are governed exclusively by these General Conditions of Sale; these conditions can be replaced by specific written agreements. In the absence of written derogatory agreements, the clauses of these General Conditions of Sale will be effective for all contracts that will be stipulated between the parties from the moment of signing and for an indefinite period, without prejudice to the possibility for both parties to give them notice with effect for all orders sent subsequently and subject to the right of the party affected by the cancellation to refuse such orders.
These General Conditions of Sale apply whatever the subject of the sale and therefore always with reference to:
The sales relationship is governed exclusively by the agreements referred to in these General Conditions of Sale. The parties may agree on any changes, additions or derogations to the aforementioned General Conditions of Sale, which must be in writing in the documents containing the request for a sale offer from the purchasing party and the relative acceptance by the selling party.
These General Conditions of Sale, unless otherwise agreed:
The purchasing party’s requests for offers must be sent to the addresses better specified below, indicating the subject of the request and any terms/conditions deemed essential for the purposes of the order.
Offers sent in response by the selling party
The order of the purchasing party is understood to be finalised for all purposes upon the written order confirmation of the selling party.
The content of the order confirmation prevails in all its parts over the terms indicated by the purchasing party in its order.
If within 10 days from the date of receipt of the order confirmation, the purchasing party has not provided written notification of any dissent, the latter will be deemed tacitly obliged.
After completion of the order, the customer may withdraw in whole or in part within 90 days of the expected delivery date. In the event of a withdrawal permitted under the foregoing, DTI will be entitled to claim as a penalty an amount equal to 35% of the total value of the revoked order if the withdrawal is communicated within 15 days after the sending of the order confirmation and an amount equal to 65% of the total value of the revoked order if the withdrawal is communicated subsequently.
Prices are always expressed in Euro, unless otherwise agreed between the parties and expressly specified in the order confirmation.
Prices are intended for goods delivered ex works DTI (Incoterms ex-works) unless otherwise agreed in writing between the parties.
Prices are always without VAT, taxes and/or customs charges.
The purchasing party will acquire ownership of the goods supplied only with full payment of the invoice issued by the selling party. However, it will assume all risks inherent in the goods themselves, including the risk of loss for reasons not attributable to the selling party.
Delayed payment, in relation to the terms indicated on the invoice, implies the addition of default interest at the rate determined pursuant to Legislative Decree 09.10.2002, no. 231 starting from the expiry date of the agreed term.
In the event of non-payment of even a single part of the price by the due date, the purchasing party will forfeit the benefit of the deferred payment also for supplies in progress; moreover, the selling party will be able to invoke the application of articles 1460 and 1461 Civil Code and consequently suspend the supplies in progress.
Payments are always to be made at the headquarters of the selling party according to the indications contained in the order confirmations.
The delivery terms indicated in the order confirmations are not essential pursuant to and with the effects of article 1457 Civil Code, have an indicative value and do not constitute a warranty, unless there is explicit written commitment of mandatory nature by the selling party expressly indicated in the order confirmation. Also in this case, the cases of unforeseen events in the establishments of the selling party are in any case excepted, in addition to the usual cases of force majeure.
Non-delivery due to force majeure will not give rise to requests for damage or cancellation of orders by the Customer.
Any delays in delivery may not in any case give rise to claims for damages or to the total or partial termination of the contract, unless otherwise and explicitly agreed upon by the selling party.
Any apparent defects in the goods supplied must be reported to the selling party within eight days of receipt of the goods at the premises of the purchasing party.
The prices in the current price list or otherwise agreed quote the products ex works of the selling party (Incoterms Ex Works), unless otherwise agreed between the parties. Any agreements for delivery of the goods in “free carrier” (Incoterms FCA) involve a charge of the transport cost on the invoice, according to the transport methods and at the rates in force.
The collection of the goods must take place within 15 days of the communication of ready goods. Failing this, the materials will be stored in the selling party’s warehouses; the purchasing party will be charged a cost of € 100.00 per day of deposit.
In any case, a regular invoice will be issued from the notice of ready goods and the payment terms will start from that date. Any parking, storage or waiting costs are the responsibility of the purchasing party, even if the goods are sold carriage paid and transport takes place with means of the selling party or commissioned by the same.
