General These terms and conditions apply in preference to and supersede any terms and conditions referred to, offered or relied on by the seller whether in negotiation or at any stage in the dealings between the seller and buyer with reference to the goods to which this contract relates. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the seller will not be bound by any standard or printed terms furnished by the buyer in any of its documents, unless the buyer specifically states in writing separately from such terms that it intends such terms to apply and the seller acknowledges such notification in writing.
Variation Neither the buyer nor the seller shall be bound by any variation, waiver of or addition to these conditions except as agreed by parties in writing and signed on their behalf.
Description The description of the goods has been given by way of identification only and the use of such description shall not constitute a sale by description.
Sample Not with standing that a sample of the goods has been exhibited to and inspected by the buyer, it is hereby declared that such sample was so exhibited and inspected solely to enable the buyer to judge for himself the quality of the bulk, and not so as to constitute a sale by sample.
Liability The buyer shall carry out a thorough inspection of the goods within 7 days of their delivery and shall give written notification to the seller forthwith of any defects which a reasonable examination would have revealed. In the case of other defects, the buyer shall give written notification of defects in the goods within 3 months from the date of delivery. Subject to compliance with the above obligations, which shall be a condition precedent to the seller’s liability, the seller will assign to the buyer its rights against its supplier and these rights shall be taken in extinction of and substitution for any rights which the customer would otherwise have had against the seller. The liability of the seller under this guarantee shall be limited to the invoice value of the components replaced and the seller shall not be liable for any consequential loss or damage howsoever caused. It shall be the duty of the buyer to ensure against such consequential loss and to hold the seller harmless therefore.
