5.2  Specified delivery times are always approximate, unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing.

5.3  The statement of the agreed delivery time is done on the condition that all the information required is in possession of SA and the payment, if and insofar as this payment has been done for this agreement, or if the requested security has been provided or  the requested advance has been paid.

In case of long-term storage as the result of not taken delivery of the goods after expiry of the delivery term, storage costs will be charged by SA.

5.9  Minor deviations of the delivered goods in size, colour, capacity, shape and packaging, can never give cause to the buyer to entirely or partially cancel the order or to refuse full or partial payment or to claim compensation of damages.

5.10  The other party is obliged to inspect the goods sold and packaging upon delivery both quantitatively and qualitatively. This also covers the situation as mentioned in subsection 8 of this article. Any shortcomings or damages in accordance with article 13 (Complaints) are to be notified to SA,

7.4   If, after the repair order has been given, the actual costs excessively threaten to exceed the estimated costs or if the likely costs do not outweigh the value of the object, SA will, prior to (further) implement the repair, consult with the other party. If this consultation, for whatever reasons, could not have taken place within a reasonable time, then SA will still (further) implement the repair.

7.5   The other party is obligated to pay the actual repair costs in cash to SA. The obligation payment arises the moment the goods, after repair, are available to the other party. SA is entitled to request (a partial) advance payment of the estimated costs of the repair.

Repaired products are not subject to the same terms of warranty, with the exception of the usual warranty to additional new parts, as far as these do not concern electronic parts.

7.7   If, after the repair, the other party does not collect or pay for the repaired article within 30 days, then SA is free to realize the article and its proceeds, minus the repair costs which are transferred to the other party.

article 9 Obligations of SA

9.1  SA will see to it that the works are performed in a meticulous manner and that the goods to be delivered are of sound quality.

9.2  If the delivered goods do not function properly or do not comply with reasonable quality demands or deviate from what has been agreed on, then SA will notwithstanding the provisions of article 12 (Force majeure) – of what SA considers appropriate and for bearing its own costs arrange, as soon as possible, repair or replacement. Repair or replacement are at the other party’s expense if this is due to incorrect and/or improper use of the equipment that has made repair or replacement necessary. If repair or replacement is not reasonably possible within such term of what has been agreed on with the other party, then SA, as well as the other party, is entitled to dissolve the agreement without judicial intervention. In the latter case the other party is entitled to compensation for the damages demonstrably suffered such in compliance with the provisions of article 10 (Liability of SA). Complaints considering delivered goods are considered only if they are reported no later than 24 hours after delivery or if the defectiveness is not apparent, 24 hours after the defect has been discovered, this should be verbally communicated or in writing and duly justified to SA. When in default of which, any right to fulfilment of the provisions of this article expires. Verbally communicated complaints are to be confirmed in writing within two days.

9.3  SA ensures that the staff that executes the agreed works is capable of performing the task, based on the information the other party has provided SA concerning the works to be executed.

9.4  Regarding the manufacturing or processing of goods: If the agreement (also) includes the manufacturing or processing of goods, SA will, in the event of loss or damage of the goods to be manufactured or processed, cover the costs for repair or replacement. If the loss or damage of the goods is caused by the other party, then the costs for repair or replacement are at the other party’s own expense.

9.5  Regarding subcontracting: SA obliges to subcontract only while maintaining high standards of quality. If SA honours the agreement by subcontracting it fully or partially, then the subcontractor, hereinafter indicated as “the third” in this article shall not be obliged to do more than is agreed. SA will promote as much as possible that the third meets his obligations and will, if necessary in SA’s opinion, institute legal action at SA’s own expense. Should SA find that conducting court proceedings is economically or legally not justifiable, then SA will at request of the other party transfer his rights towards the third to the other party.

article 10  Liability of SA

10.3 In case of attributable failure to perform the agreement between SA and the other party on the basis of which SA performs one or more services for the other party, SA shall only be accountable for replacing losses, that is replacement of the value of the performance that was not provided.

specified by SA, though not later than 30 days after the invoice date. The value day stated on the bank/giro account is definite and is regarded as payment date.

16.2 Every payment made by the other party primarily serves as settlement of the interest payable by her, as well as the payment of the collection expenses made by SA and is subsequently deducted from the oldest outstanding invoice, even if the other party states that it is the payment of another invoice that has been sent out later.

16.4 SA is at all times entitled to ask the other party for (additional) security proving the observance of her obligations.
