GENERAL TERMS OF SALE APPLIED BY ESSE-TI srl with registered office in Recanati (MC), via G. Capodaglio, 9, postcode 62019, VAT no. 01475310437

  1. GENERAL DISCIPLINE
    • These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (hereinafter also referred to as “GTCS”) shall apply to all contracts concerning the products described in point 2 (SUBJECT) and sold by ESSE-TI srl with registered office in Recanati (MC), via G. Capodaglio, 9, postcode 62019, VAT No. 01475310437 (hereinafter referred to as “ESSE-TI” for brevity) both in Italy and abroad to entrepreneurs or by entities qualifying as professional operators (so-called B2B) with the express exclusion of the sale to consumers of the consumer protection legislation, pursuant to Legislative Decree No. 206 of 6 September 2005 (so-called Consumer Code).
    • The conditions described below prevail over any prior written or verbal contractual agreement and may only be waived by subsequent specific written agreements.
    • Any and all purchase orders addressed to ESSE-TI, regardless of the instrument used for their transmission, imply acceptance, without reservation, of these general terms and conditions.
    • It is understood that exceptions to the application of these GTC may be agreed.
    • Any exceptions to the application of these GTC must necessarily be made in writing.
    • Where the Parties have also entered into an agreement for repeated deliveries or deliveries of a periodic nature, these General Terms and Conditions shall also supplement and apply to the aforementioned documents, unless derogated from.
    • In the event of a conflict, the specifically agreed agreements shall prevail over these GTC.
    • At its sole discretion and in exceptional cases, ESSE-TI shall be entitled not to avail itself of these terms and conditions, without this constituting or being construed as a waiver of the right to avail itself of them subsequently.
    • Any and all agreements concluded otherwise than in accordance with these GTC shall in no way be binding or binding upon ESSE-TI, unless, of course, the order is expressly accepted and confirmed in writing.
    • In any event, any sales agreement shall necessarily be concluded in writing. In fact, ESSE-TI does not recognise any value in verbal declarations, agreements or commitments of any kind which may be made, entered into or undertaken by its officers and/or employees.
  1. SUBJECT
    • These GTC cover electrical and electronic equipment for telecommunications and alarm systems for lifts.
    • The subject matter of the sale made by ESSE-TI is exclusively the products and software realised by it as well as their functionality.
    • It is therefore understood that by accepting the order ESSE-TI does not assume – unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing – any obligation to provide the customer with specific know-how, production technology or other application or adaptation inherent to the activity the customer intends to carry out with the product and software supplied.
  1. PURCHASE ORDERS, MODIFICATIONS AND CANCELLATIONS
    • Bids -in which the product, its quantity and unit price shall necessarily be identified- that are made in writing by ESSE-TI shall be valid and irrevocable for 15 (fifteen) days from their issue, unless of course otherwise specified and expressly committed to maintaining a specific bid for a different period of time.
    • Prices indicated in catalogues or other price lists issued by ESSE-TI are purely indicative and are not binding on ESSE-TI, which shall only be bound by the prices indicated in a specific offer to the customer.
    • In the event of an offer proposed in writing by ESSE-TI, including by the use of digital means, the contract of sale shall be deemed to have been concluded upon the customer’s acceptance communicated in writing.
    • If, on the other hand, the customer submits a written order for the purchase of products to ESSE-TI, the sales agreement shall be concluded as described below.
    • Within 5 (five) working days of receipt of the written order ESSE-TI shall send the Customer, again in writing, a formal notice of acceptance of the order (so-called order confirmation).
    • If ESSE-TI’s order confirmation differs from the initial order received from the Customer and contains a different indication of the constituent elements of the order (such as the identification of the product sold, the purchase price or the delivery date), the contract shall be deemed to have been concluded only after the Customer’s acceptance of the order confirmation sent by ESSE-TI.
    • In such a case, the customer shall send a written notice of acceptance of the order confirmation, thereby expressing its express consent and adherence to what is stated and specified therein, including reference to any changes made by ESSE-RI with respect to the initial order received.
    • Once the contract has been concluded, ESSE-TI shall commence execution of the order received, which may therefore no longer be modified or cancelled by the customer.
    • ESSE-TI reserves the right, in any event, to accept or reject any requests for amendments or cancellation of the order that it may subsequently receive from the customer, taking into account the progress of the order, reserving the right, in this case, to make a request for integration of the consideration or reimbursement of any charges resulting from the amendment requested and granted.
    • In any event, modifications and cancellations of the order shall be expressly accepted in writing by ESSE-TI, otherwise the previously concluded sales agreement shall remain valid and effective.
  1. DELIVERIES
    • Delivery dates are always to be understood as approximate and indicative and subject to production possibilities.
    • Consequently, the essential nature of the term is excluded unless explicitly agreed upon. Failure to deliver within the terms not stated to be essential shall entitle the purchaser to withdraw from the contract, excluding any action or claim for damages. Delivery deadlines, even if established, may be extended (and orders even cancelled) in cases of force majeure and in cases of political, economic, domestic and in the event of lack of and insufficient allocation of raw or ancillary materials, import bans or restrictions.
    • Cases of force majeure include, in addition to fires, strikes, stranded transports of all kinds, failure, partial or defective delivery of components by ESSE-TI’s suppliers.
    • Internal cases also include (the list is merely indicative and not exhaustive) the suspension of electricity and the total or partial failure of a production line.
    • The obligation to supply the goods sold by ESSE-TI shall be deemed to have been fulfilled with the direct acceptance of the goods by the customer or by the appointed carrier.
    • The handover definitively finalises the transfer of ownership in favour of the customer.
    • Goods therefore travel at the risk and peril of the purchasing party and ESSE-TI accepts no liability whatsoever for damage to goods purchased after they have left its factory and/or warehouse.
    • The above provisions remain valid even if ESSE-TI is contracted to transport
  1. CONSIDERATION AND TERMS OF PAYMENT
    • Payments must normally be made by bank receipt or, for foreign Customers only, by bank transfer. Only exceptionally, payments by bank cheque, bank draft or by bank transfer may be authorised also for Customers based in the national territory of the Italian Republic. Payments by bank transfer shall be announced in advance by means of a bank transfer notice or a copy of the order forwarded to the bank or, as soon as possible, of the relevant CRO number.
    • Once the payment deadline has passed without payment having been made, ESSE-TI may, at its sole option, either suspend deliveries of the remaining quantities of goods sold or terminate the contract, without prejudice, in either case, to its right to claim damages.
    • In the event of late payment of invoices, interest on arrears shall be due to ESSE-TI to the extent set forth in Legislative Decree 231/2002.
  1. COMPLAINTS, DISPUTES AND RETURNS
    • No claim shall be accepted by ESSE-TI fifteen days after receipt of the goods by the customer.
    • Any return of products must, in any event, be discussed in advance and expressly authorised in writing by ESSE-TI .
    • Acceptance of a return -requested for reasons not attributable to the seller- shall be at the sole discretion of ESSE-TI and shall only be made if the product purchased has been paid for in full.
    • In any event, the costs inherent in the return, – including logistics, transport, storage, administrative and management costs as well as all other related costs, – shall remain the sole responsibility of the Customer and shall be settled for the amounts and under the terms to be assigned by ESSE-TI.

    • ESSE-TI guarantees the products for 24 months from the date of shipment.

    • The warranty shall be void for products that are tampered with and deteriorated for reasons not attributable to ESSE-TI, as well as for equipment that is used for applications that conflict with and are incompatible with the limits of use dictated by standards and/or set forth in the user manuals and technical documentation.
    • Assembly, preparatory and ancillary work, electrical connections and commissioning of the products supplied are carried out by the customer: the guarantee provided therefore only concerns the individual components supplied and not the complete system.
    • Any modification, manipulation or variation made to the original product or its individual components as sold by ESSE-TI as well as any installation not envisaged in the accompanying technical documentation shall automatically invalidate any form of warranty.
    • ESSE-TI accepts no liability for products that have undergone changes or installations not covered by the manuals or technical documentation provided.
    • The customer hereby expressly releases ESSE-TI from any and all claims for damages or demands for pecuniary or non-pecuniary loss, direct or indirect, including loss of profit, which may be attributable to the incorrect use of the products supplied.
    • Under no circumstances may ESSE-TI be held or made liable for any damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, inherent, special or consequential, whether contractual or extra-contractual, arising from the activation or use of the products supplied and/or the interruption of operation of the systems on which they have been installed.
    • Similarly, ESSE-TI shall not be held liable for the malfunctioning of services resulting from the liability of telephone lines, power lines and global and national networks.
