User: Equinem B.V., established in Enschede at 42 Viekerlaan (Chamber of Commerce number 63326000);
Buyer: user's other party, acting in the exercise of a profession or business, to which user sells and delivers goods, as well as to which user performs services when occasion arises.
Agreement: The agreement between user and buyer for the sale and delivery of movable property, as well as for providing a license.
2.1. These terms and conditions apply to all legal relationships between user and buyer, including every offer, quotation and agreement between user and buyer to which user has declared these terms and conditions applicable, insofar as parties have not diverged from these terms and conditions explicitly and in writing.
2.2. Any variations on these general terms and conditions are valid only if expressly agreed in writing.
2.3. The applicability of any purchase conditions or other conditions on the part of buyer is explicitly rejected.
2.4. If one or more of the provisions in these general terms and conditions are null and void or should be annulled, the remaining provisions of these general terms and conditions will remain completely applicable. User and buyer will then consult together in order to agree on new provisions replacing the null and void or annulled ones, taking into account if and as much as possible the purpose and intent of the original provision.
3.1. Any offer made by user is non-binding, unless in or in connection with that offer a period of time for acceptance is explicitly mentioned.
3.2. The prices in the offers/quotations concerned are exclusive of VAT and other government levies, as well as any costs to be incurred within the scope of the agreement, including costs of dispatch and administration, unless otherwise agreed.
3.3. The offer is based solely on the information provided for that purpose by buyer, in which case user can rely on its accuracy and completeness. Buyer guarantees the accuracy and completeness of the information concerned.
3.4. The agreement between user and buyer is concluded in one of the following ways and times:
a) either, if no order confirmation is sent, at the time when an offer made by user has explicitly been accepted orally or in writing and unchanged by buyer.
b) or, if an order confirmation is sent, at the time when user has received back the order confirmation sent to and duly signed for approval by buyer.
c) or, at the time when at the request of buyer user has commenced carrying out the assignment.
Nevertheless each of the parties is free to prove that the agreement has been concluded in a different way and/or at a different time.
4.1. The periods of time stated by user are always indicative periods and are not considered to be strict deadlines. Exceeding these periods does not oblige user to pay any compensation and does not give buyer the right to dissolve the agreement or to suspend his own obligations, unless it is a matter of intent or equivalent gross negligence on the part of user or persons in charge of his company.
4.2. In the event of untimely delivery user must be declared in default in writing by buyer, before he can be in default.
4.3. If and insofar as required for a good execution of the agreement, user has the right to have certain work carried out by third parties.
