Terms of Sale. These Standard Terms and Conditions ("Terms") govern all sales of products (the "Products") by Emteq Limited ("Emteq Labs") to Buyer regardless of whether Buyer purchases the Products through the medium of written purchase orders or electronic orders via EDI (collectively, "Purchase Orders"). Upon receipt by Buyer of an express acceptance by Emteq Labs or upon commencement of performance by Emteq Labs, these Terms, the Purchase Order, as modified by Emteq Labs' acceptance or order acknowledgment, become a binding contract between Buyer and Emteq Labs on the terms reflected in those documents (the "Sales Agreement"). In case of a conflict between these Terms and the Purchase Order, these Terms prevail except where Emteq Labs has expressly agreed to the conflicting term in the Purchase Order in its acceptance or order acknowledgment. In case of a conflict between the Purchase Order and Emteq Labs' acceptance or order acknowledgment, the acceptance or order acknowledgment prevails.
Price. The price of the Products, as set forth in the Purchase Order, does not include sales, use, excise or any other taxes or assessments levied by any federal, state, municipal or other governmental authority, unless Emteq Labs expressly agrees otherwise.
Payment. Payments must be made to Emteq Labs in British Pounds Sterling for the price of the Products together with any shipping and handling costs and applicable taxes such as sales tax, VAT, user tax, customs and duties, etc. at the time of the submission of the Purchase Order. Orders outside the UK may be subject to taxes/duties on delivery.
Specifications; Modification. The Product will be in substantial conformity with the specifications, as advertised. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all Products, parts and components and product-related specifications are subject to modifications and changes without notice to comply with applicable freight classification, Emteq Labs' customary distribution or manufacturing processes, industry courses of dealing and usages of trade, industry standards, third party rights, and/or changes in applicable laws and regulations.
Packaging. Emteq Labs has the sole discretion to pick and choose the shipping method; provided, however, in the event Buyer requests, and Emteq Labs agrees to comply with the request, a preferred, pre-paid by Buyer, reasonable shipping method, Emteq Labs will endeavour to comply with Buyer's packaging specifications, if any, including without limitation, unitizing, palletizing, boxing, and bundling; provided further Emteq Labs reserves the right to substitute any other methods of packaging that is reasonably comparable to the specifications furnished by Buyer, both with respect to costs and to the risk to which the Products are subject.
Shipment. Emteq Labs must deliver the Products from Emteq Labs' facility. Buyer must pay all transportation costs of the Products. In the event Buyer purchases more than one (1) unit of Products, Emteq Labs may make partial shipments at Emteq Labs' sole discretion. Emteq Labs will endeavour to meet the shipping date specified by Buyer. If Emteq Labs is unable to meet that date, Buyer has no claim for damages resulting from any such delay in delivery.
Title and Risk of Loss. Title to the Products passes to Buyer when the Products are fully paid for. Emteq Labs is not responsible for damage or loss in transit. All risk of loss to the Products passes to Buyer as the Products are loaded onto the carrier. Buyer must obtain adequate insurance to cover the Products from the time risk of loss has passed from Emteq Labs.
Return & Refund Policy. Buyer may return the Product within 30 days of the delivery and receive 100% of the purchase price (the "Refund") on the following conditions: first, Buyer must contact Emteq Labs' representative and supply all requested information after which Buyer receives an authorization; second, Buyer must assemble all parts and components and repackage the same using the original packaging; third, Buyer must use authorized shipping methods to return the entire package at Buyer's own costs and must include any return authorization statement issued by Emteq Labs. Upon receipt of the returned Product, Emteq Labs will inspect and examine the returned Product and determine whether Buyer has fully complied with all applicable terms and conditions, including the foregoing conditions. Following such inspection and examination, only in the event that Emteq Labs is satisfied with the results, then Emteq Labs will issue the Refund by crediting the credit card account by which Buyer made the purchase price less any other reasonable charges for cleaning, inspection and examination, testing, restocking costs. Buyer agrees that the foregoing process until issuance of the Refund may take up to 60 days. In the event that following inspection and examination of a returned Product, Emteq Labs determines that the Buyer failed to comply with all applicable conditions for returning Products, Emteq Labs may only return 85 % of the purchase price, which shall be equal to the then-fair salvage prices of the parts and components less reasonable labour costs and charges for salvaging and recycling the parts and components.
