3. Binding agreement
An order is only binding on BESKO A/S when the company has confirmed the order in writing, which is usually done by sending either an order confirmation or an invoice. The company reserves the right to change a price stated in an order confirmation in the event of changes in exchange rates, customs duties, taxes, transport costs and / or changes in prices from the company’s suppliers. If the buyer has paid for the purchase before this is delivered, BESKO A/S is entitled to post-payment if one of the above conditions arises, which entitles the company to make a change in the price when the situation is financially burdensome for the company.
This right to make changes in prices also applies to current deliveries regarding the part of the delivery which at the time of any adjustment has not yet been delivered or paid for by the buyer.
Written offers is only valid if the offer is not accepted before the expiry date stated on the offer. If no expiration date is specified, the offer is valid for 24 hours.
5. Delivery, shipment
Delivery takes place from the company’s address in Brabrand, Greve, Kolding, Aalborg, Herning, Odense or Padborg – EXW. Shipping is at the buyer’s expense and risk. If BESKO A/S has not received any written instructions for shipment, the means of transport is chosen by the company’s preference.
6. Delivery time
The delivery times specified in the order confirmations are estimated and complied with as far as possible by the company. If delivery has not been made within 2 days of the estimated delivery time, and if the buyer is not responsible for this, the buyer may cancel the order(s) affected by the delay by written notice to BESKO A/S. The buyer has no other rights in the event of delayed delivery. Specified delivery times applies with precaution to other orders received before acceptance.
If a separate price has been calculated and paid for packaging, the entire invoiced amount will be refunded – unless otherwise is stated in the invoice / invoices – if the packaging is received free of charge for BESKO A/S or at an address specified by the company, in undamaged condition and within reasonable time. The company sovereignly decides whether the packaging has been returned in undamaged condition. If the packaging is damaged, this is notified to the buyer, and the damage value unilaterally employed by BESKO A/S is deducted from the refund of the invoiced packaging amount.
If goods are received on approved EUR pallets, they must be exchanged upon delivery of goods whenever possible. The customer is responsible for the carrier getting an exchange pallet. If this does not happen, the pallet will be invoiced.
The buyer is not entitled to withhold payment due to any counterclaims which BESKO A/S has not acknowledged in writing. If payment has not been made no later than the last timely payment date, BESKO A/S has the right to calculate default interest with min. 1.5% pr. month of its receivable from the due date to count until payment is made. Interest on arrears for the month in which default may occur, however, amounts to at least DKK 25.00.
9. Retention of title
BESKO A/S reserves ownership of the goods until the entire invoice amount has been paid.
10. Infringement of exclusive rights
BESKO A / S is not aware that the product delivered to the buyer infringes a third party’s patent, trademark, design or other rights. The seller is therefore not responsible for whether this may be the case anyway, or whether a violation is presumed to occur when the buyer uses the item.
Delivered goods are only repurchased by separate agreement and unless otherwise price is agreed, only at the company’s invoice price minus a credit fee set by BESKO A/S and freely delivered the company’s address or another place specified by the company within the country’s borders.
12. Complaint deadline and form
Buyer must, upon receipt, and before the purchased item is used, adjusted, or processed, check whether the purchased item corresponds to the agreed quality and quantity, and whether there are defects in the delivered products. If the buyer finds that the delivered item is not in accordance with the contract, the buyer must immediately make a written complaint to BESKO A/S with a description of the defect. Complaints about defects should be received by BESKO A/S no later than 8 working days after the defect is or should have been discovered by the buyer. Any defect claim, regardless of type, must, however, be claimed within 12 months from the delivery date, unless BESKO A/S has assumed a guarantee beyond this period. If the defect is not clearly described in the letter, or if the complaint deadline has not been complied with, the buyer loses all default rights. The buyer can not invoke a defect in the purchased item if the defect can be attributed to circumstances with the buyer – for example in negligence in the use or storage of the purchased item.
BESKO A/S is entitled to, within a period of 6 months from the date of complain, at own choice to exchange, repair or have delivered goods repaired that may prove to be defective due to defects in construction, material, or manufacture. Expenses in connection with a justified complaint are borne by BESKO A/S.
BESKO A/S does not compensate for costs in connection with the installation and replacement of the defective goods. Likewise, no compensation is granted for indirect losses suffered as a result of defects in goods, including loss of production, sales, profits, time or goodwill, see also point 13 of these terms and conditions of sale and delivery.
BESKO A/S reserves the right to invoice the buyer for the costs of unjustified complaints. BESKO A/S is in no case obliged to remedy a defect. The buyer is only entitled to cancel a purchase if there is a significant defect and if BESKO A/S does not wish to remedy the defect, or if the company’s remedial attempts, the number and duration of which are determined by BESKO A/S, have proved to be in vain. If BESKO A/S enters into negotiations with the buyer with a view to finding an amicable solution to a complaint, it does not imply that BESKO A/S has acknowledged the complaint. BESKO A/S is therefore still entitled to apply the agreed complaint deadlines and limitations of liability to the buyer.
