Terms and conditions
These general conditions of sale govern the relations between Newland Magnetics Europe SAS, hereinafter referred to as “NME” and the Clients, hereinafter referred to as “Buyer”. Both parties accept them without reservation.
- General clauses:
These general conditions of sale take precedence over all conditions of purchase, any general buying terms published by the Buyer shall not be applicable to relations between the parties unless expressly accepted in writing by NME and in any case shall in no way invalidate these General Terms. Any order of products supposes the acceptance of these general conditions of sale.
The weights, dimensions, prices, output, colours and other data relative to the supplied products and indicated in the catalogues, price lists, circulars or other illustrative documents published by NME, similarly the characteristics of samples, are merely indicative and are in no way binding, unless said product characteristics are indicated as such in the sale offer or in the order confirmation.
Any order made with NME, does not form a contract until an Order Acknowledgement has been issued to the Buyer. NME reserves the right to refuse any order from a Buyer with whom there is a dispute over the payment of a previous order. The accuracy of the information given is the responsibility of the Buyer, when placing an order. In case of error in the wording of the recipient’s contact information, NME cannot be held responsible for non-delivery of the product.
In case of the modification made to the initial order by the Buyer, any additional cost due to the changes will be their responsibility. Only in the case of the inability of NME to realise the delivery of the order, the Buyer will be able to cancel his engagement.
