General Terms of Delivery and Payment 10/05

Unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, TEXTEST's deliveries are subject to the following general terms:

Prices

Our prices are quoted in Swiss Francs, ex works. Packaging - except for seaworthy packaging - is included.

The transportation insurance from TEXTEST's factory to the purchaser's premises is covered by TEXTEST. Important: It is the purchaser's responsibility to inspect the goods immediately upon receipt for transportation damage. In case of such damage, the purchaser must immediately file a written claim with the carrier, copy to TEXTEST. Non-compliance with this condition voids any claim.

For deliveries into Switzerland the value added tax (MwSt) is not included.

Conditions of Payment

If not otherwise agreed upon in writing, our invoices are payable net within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice. Place for payment is Zurich, Switzerland. Until full settlement of TEXTEST's claims the property in all goods supplied remains with TEXTEST. The purchaser has no right to withhold payment or any portion thereof on account of any complaint or to compensate for any counter-claim not recognized by TEXTEST. Loss or destruction of or damage to the goods during transportation do not release purchaser of his obligation to comply with the terms of payment.

If the installation is delayed, any and all warranties shall expire at the earlier of twelve (12) months from date of installation or eighteen (18) months from date of delivery to purchaser.

TEXTEST's warranty is expressively limited to the no charge replacement of defective parts; the labor cost is to be born by purchaser. Addditional claims, for example for replacement of damage due to production problems, data loss or loss of profit, are excluded.

Defects covered by the warranty shall not include defects resulting from or caused by any failure to follow written instructions of TEXTEST contained in any operating manual, service manual or other relevant document furnished by TEXTEST. The warranty shall not apply if the goods in question do not operate properly because of modifications or changes made therein by purchaser.
