TERMS OF SALE AND DELIVERY

 

1. RANGE OF APPLICATION

For any purchase of products from KC-Denmark A/S, the present Terms of Sale and Delivery shall be considered as an integrated part of the terms of trade applying unless otherwise agreed in writing.

These conditions shall exclude any deviating terms or conditions stipulated or referred to by the PURCHASER in connection with the placing of an order. In such cases KC Denmark A/S shall be entitled to cancel any quotations, order confirmations and contracts for the sale and delivery of goods unless the PURCHASER immediately upon having been asked to do so waives such deviating conditions of purchase in writing.

Any deviations to the present Terms of Sale and Delivery shall be in the form of a clear, unambiguous written agreement.

 

2. PRICES

For standard products, prices shall be stated to the KC Denmark A/S current price list excl. VAT, packing, delivery charges, and insurance. The insurance is 0,5 %, with a minimum charge of
EUR 5.

For additional documents, such as Certificate of Origin, signed by Chambers of Commerce, EUR1 Certificate, Letter of Irrevocable Credit (L/C), or similar, the actual costs will be charged to the PURCHASER. All expenses for the L/C in Denmark must be paid by the PURCHASER. Before opening the L/C the PURCHASER must send a draft to KC Denmark A/S for our perusal and comments, otherwise KC Denmark A/S reserves the right to refuse the L/C. All costs can be estimated upon request. Bank Guarantee to be issued by KC Denmark A/S, will not be considered nor provided.

Quotations and attachments will preferably be sent by e-mail, fax or by surface mail. Estimates for delivery time are always based on actual volume of orders and may vary. Information for availability is based on today's stock and subjects for goods being unsold. Delivery by courier will always be invoiced to the PURCHASER, and KC-Denmark has the right to claim a prepayment for the expenses.

KC Denmark A/S reserves the right to give notice to the PURCHASER at any time before delivery.  Notice can be given in order to increase the price to reflect any increase in KC Denmark A/S costs due to any factor beyond the control of KC Denmark A/S (such as, and without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the cost of labour, materials or other manufacturing costs). KC Denmark A/S reserves the right by giving notice to the PURCHASER to increase the price to reflect any change in delivery dates, quantities or specifications for which is requested by the PURCHASER, or any delay caused by any instructions of the PURCHASER or failure of the PURCHASER to give KC Denmark A/S adequate information or instructions.

 

3. TERMS OF PAYMENT

For new customers all expenses inclusive shipping costs must be prepaid to our account. For well-known customers we offer a term of fourteen (14) days net from date of invoice unless other term agreed by KC Denmark A/S in written. For very large orders, for custom designed products or for larger development a prepayment of 50 % - 100 % of total value will be claimed. The
estimated delivery time for an order starts upon receipt of the prepayment or the first part hereof.

If a prepayment has been transferred to our account, and the order or part hereof is cancelled by the PURCHASER or by KC Denmark A/S for any reason, KC Denmark A/S reserves the right to subtract any reasonable costs occurred for materials, wages and similar costs.

The buyer is not entitled to withhold payment on the grounds of a counterclaim that has not been acknowledged in writing by KC-Denmark A/S. Penalty interest at the rate of 2,0 % of invoice value per the first day of each month as well as a dunning charge of DKK 175/EUR 25 will be charged on overdue payment

IMPORTANT: For all payments, the PURCHASER must defray all domestic expenses as KC-Denmark will defray bank costs in Denmark only. For payments via an intermediary bank, the PURCHASER must also pay the correspondent (intermediary) bank charges. Unless agreed by us in written, the PURCHASER must pay the invoice amount in EURO. For payment in another currency resulting in exchange loss to KC Denmark A/S, we reserve the right to invoice the PURCHASER for the loss, and to withhold the shipment, until the PURCHASER has paid the additional costs to our account.

Unless other agreement is made in written, a door-door delivery includes the customs clearance fee, but no VAT or other local fees.

Delivery to an airport, where the client picks up the goods himself, does not include any customs clearance, VAT or other fees. All cables and wires will be delivered at the ordered or specified length, ±3 %.

The ECS-2 fee is mandatory for shipping's outside the EU. The ECS (Export Control System) secures that all exported goods are subject to a risk assessment and physical checks, if necessary, before leaving the EU.

6. IMPORTANT RULES ON RECEIVING GOODS

If any complaint concerning transportation damages or other damages to the goods on its way to the purchaser has to be handled by our insurance company, or us, it is necessary that the PURCHASER makes a written reservation to the carrier and to KC Denmark A/S. It is strongly recommended to enclose one or more photos showing any damages on the product as well as on the packaging itself. This means, that the PURCHASER or his representative has to unpack the goods and do the written reservation within 3 days after receiving the goods. Claims for transportation damages received after 3 days will not be accepted.

If the written reservation is missing, the PURCHASER will be liable for the total amount of the invoice inclusive all shipping costs. All expenses in connection with repair of the goods as well as all shipping costs must be paid by the purchaser. If KC DENMARK A/S accepts sharing the costs, all agreements must be in written and KC DENMARK A/S decides the shipment method as well as the forwarder.

Any return of goods without our permission in written is at the purchaser's risk, as we do not cover insurance or shipping costs. KC DENMARK A/S may demand photos showing the damages etc. before returning any goods or parts hereof.
