The conduct and cost of inventories at the start and completion of our work are the responsibilities of the customer.
14. Limitation of liability
With regard to the guarantee for hidden defects, the Company will only replace the defective products or defective parts free of charge and this only when the hidden defect has been proven without the Customer being entitled to claim any damages whatsoever.
Our guarantee only relates to hidden defects, meaning a defect in the product that makes it unfit for its intended purpose in the order and that cannot be detected by the Customer at the time of its delivery. A design fault is not a hidden defect.
The guarantee does not apply in the case of inappropriate use, negligence or incorrect maintenance on the part of the customer, as well as to the normal wear and tear to the product or a force majeure occurrence.
To invoke its rights, the Customer must, or forfeit any rights, notify the Company in writing of the existence of defects within a maximum period of 24 hours as of their discovery.
15. Cancellation clause
If one Party fails to fulfil its obligations arising under the contract, the contract will be lawfully terminated at the fault of that Party, without prejudice to any damages that may be claimed from the defaulting Party.
The termination will become effective ten days after the sending of formal notice by recorded delivery letter with acknowledgment of receipt remaining without effect. This termination can be accompanied by an injunction.
The transfer of ownership in our products is suspended until full payment for these by the Customer, in the amount of the principal and other sums, even if a payment postponement is granted. All clauses to the contrary, namely contained in the General Conditions of Purchase, are deemed as not existing.
It is hereby agreed that the Company can exercise the rights it holds under this ownership clause, for any of its accounts receivable, for all products in the possession of the customer, with these latter being deemed to be those unpaid and the Company can repossess these or claim compensation for all its unpaid invoices, without prejudice to its right to terminate on-going sales.
The Company can also require, in the case of the non-payment of all or part of an overdue invoice, the cancellation of the sale following the sending of formal notice by recorded delivery letter with acknowledgement of receipt eight days in advance.
The Company can also unilaterally after giving formal notice to comply, draw up or have drawn up an inventory of its products in the possession of the customer, which hereby agrees to allow free access to its warehouses, stores and other premises for that purpose, checking that the identification of the Company’s products is still possible.
The fact that our customer has paid an advance does not give it a lien on the equipment, and as required the customer abandons any possessory lien.
This clause does not prevent the risks associated with the goods from being transferred to the customer, as laid down in Article 5; the Customer acts as the guardian and depositary for these goods.
Notwithstanding the non-transfer of ownership, the Customer is solely liable for any damage, theft, fire, etc. that may damage or destroy our products.
The Customer therefore agrees in the event of payment after the delivery to provide insurance cover against the risks of loss and damage outside its control in favour of the Company for these products.
Unless stated otherwise, any notice of cancellation, modification and other operation relating to the proposals made by the Company, will be given either by electronic mail or fax, during office opening hours.
For this reason the same evidential significance will be given to emails and fax copies as to exchanges by recorded delivery with acknowledgement of receipt.
