Terms & Conditions
1. Purpose and scope of common conditions
The present General Terms and Conditions (afterwards referred to as the Terms) lay down the terms and conditions for DACOS A/S’s (afterwards referred to as “Seller”) delivery of goods to a non-consumer/business owner (afterwards referred to as Buyer) as described in the agreement concluded between Buyer and Seller (afterwards referred to as the “Agreement”).
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the terms and conditions set out below are applicable and precede any Buyer’s terms and conditions.
2. Scope of benefits
The Seller’s service consists of the delivery of goods, the details of which are specified, the scope and the time of delivery are described in the Seller’s order confirmation.
Final Purchase Agreement is considered to be entered into only when the Seller has sent an order confirmation to Buyer. Seller disclaims any responsibility for any errors or disclosures in any third-party material. This applies to any kind of sales material, descriptions, user guides, content on other websites, etc.
4. Cancellation and change of orders
After placing an order, the buyer is not entitled to change or cancel it.
If the Seller, despite the above, separately approves a cancellation or change, the Buyer is obliged to pay the costs associated with the cancellation or change. That is including costs for storing and guaranteeing quality and properties as well as interest due to deferred delivery time. In the event of full or partial cancellation, the Buyer is further obliged to compensate the Seller’s lost profits.
5. Returnable goods and returnable packaging
Goods are not to be returned.
If, in spite of the foregoing, it is agreed that the Seller returns goods, the goods must be unused, in defective condition and in original and unbroken packaging. The goods must be free of dirt etc. However, items specially produced and / or delivered to the Buyer are never returned.
Approved return goods are credited less the fee set by the Seller to cover return costs and the Seller’s selling costs.
Returnable packaging will be credited for delivery in undamaged condition within 3 months of Seller’s delivery. Credit is made with a deduction to cover wear, handling and freight costs, etc.
6. Prices and billing
The agreed price for the ordered goods is stated in the Seller’s order confirmation. Seller reserves the right to adjust the price, if this, at the time of delivery and as a result of fluctuations in the foreign exchange market or price increases on the raw materials used by Seller or Seller’s suppliers, has changed by a minimum of +/- 2.25% compared to the stated on the order confirmation or at the submission of the offer.
Seller is entitled to invoice Buyer for payment of goods as delivery occurs.
Unless otherwise agreed, the payment deadline is 7 days from the date on the invoice sent by the Seller. In case of late payment, the Seller is entitled to charge late payment interest of 2% per commenced month of the total outstanding from the due date. Late payment of an invoice is always considered a material breach of the Agreement.
Any delay in payment gives the Seller the right to withhold further deliveries and release himself from all obligations under the concluded agreement.
The seller reserves the right to change the agreed payment terms if the buyer’s ability to pay is impaired after the conclusion of the agreement.
The seller reserves title to the goods until the full purchase price has been paid.
The seller does not provide an independent warranty on goods deliveries. The Buyer cannot make a claim against the Seller in accordance with a manufacturer’s guarantee for a product in the purchase agreement or otherwise, as the Seller merely passes on such a manufacturer’s guarantee to the Buyer.
9. Errors and shortcomings
The buyer is obliged to examine and test the delivered immediately after delivery, as thoroughly as the relationship requires, to ascertain whether there is a deficiency in the delivered or whether the delivered is in accordance with the order confirmation both qualitatively and quantitatively.
In order to claim that it delivered any defects or defects (afterwards referred to as “errors”), the Buyer must make a written complaint to the Seller immediately after the defect is or should have been discovered. In connection with the complaint, the buyer must indicate and, on request, show how the error manifests. The Seller is solely responsible for errors which the Buyer has complained about immediately from the delivery of the defective item.
The seller is never liable, and it is not considered a breach if there are errors due to the design of the product, provided the design is in accordance with the agreed. The Seller is also not liable for errors caused by the Buyer’s own circumstances such as failure to maintain, incorrect use, application against the Seller’s regulations as well as changes and interference with the delivered by unauthorized persons.
9.1 In case of defects in the item
In the event of errors in the delivered goods, the Seller may choose whether the Seller will: a) rectify the mistake, b) redeliver or deliver the defective goods, or c) give the Buyer a proportionate discount in the price.
In the event that it is reasonably considered that the Buyer can take remedial action himself, the remedy shall be deemed to have been completed by the delivery of a defective part and / or instruction for remediation.
If the Seller chooses to remedy, deliver or deliver, the Seller is obliged to make such remediation, remittance or delivery at his own expense with the speed required by the situation.
If the Seller does not within a reasonable time take remediation, delivery or delivery of goods at the speed required by the circumstances, the Buyer may give the Seller a final and reasonable period in which to take remediation or delivery. The minimum time limit shall be 5 working days and no earlier than 20 working days from the time when the Seller received the Buyer’s written complaint on the occasion of the error.
If the Seller has not taken remedial action, delivery or delivery at the expiry of the deadline, the Buyer is entitled to a proportionate discount corresponding to the defective proportion of the delivered in relation to the total delivery and price.
9.2 Can the buyer terminate the agreement
If the defect is material, the Buyer may terminate the agreement in respect of the defective proportion of the goods. The Buyer can only terminate the Agreement in respect of non-defective goods if they are in such a relationship with the defective goods that they cannot reasonably function satisfactorily on their own.
The Buyer cannot bring a claim against the Seller for any defects in the product, unless the Seller can have the claim covered by the manufacturer.
If the Buyer complains of errors, and it turns out that there are no errors attributable to the Seller, the Buyer must reimburse the Seller’s expenses in such connection, including examination and shipping costs.
