Sales Terms and Conditions

1. Orders

The order is considered confirmed always “subject to approval” by our company and is irrevocable until the expiration of the term for the dispatch of the goods.

2. Shipping and Transport

Our company may send the goods through the freight forwarder or carrier indicated by the purchaser or, alternatively, chosen by ourselves, always at the expense of the recipient, without prior response.

3. Delivery Terms

Unless otherwise agreed, the supply of goods is considered “Ex Works”. In any case, whatever the delivery terms agreed upon by the parties, the risks on the supply itself are transferred to the Buyer upon delivery to the first carrier.

4. Deliveries

Any delay in deliveries due to force majeure or unforeseeable circumstances, strikes by our staff, customs, transport or third parties in general, is not attributable to the selling company.

5. Quantity

The goods are always considered sold in square meters (sqm or m2).

6. Prices

In the event of an increase in production costs (labor and/or raw materials) or depreciation of the Euro exchange rate against the US Dollar and/or the British Pound by more than 5% from the date of the order, the price will be increased proportionally accordingly.

7. Payment Conditions

Payments must be made within the agreed terms and at our headquarters in Civitanova Marche (MC), or in the hands of persons expressly authorized (in writing). In case of delayed payment, default interest shall be due at a rate of seven (7) percentage points higher than the ECB financing rate. In case of non-payment within the agreed term, the selling company is authorized to issue a sight draft for the invoice amount plus interest and expenses. It is at the discretion of the seller to increase the selling price by up to 2% for each month of delay in payment due to any cause other than the originally agreed upon deadline.

8. Suspension of Execution

The selling company is always authorized, at its sole discretion, to suspend the execution of one or more sales contracts in case of irregularities in payments by the Buyer, even in relation to other contracts and supplies.

9. General Guarantees for Defects and Claims

The selling company is not liable for lack of quality in the goods that make them unsuitable for the intended use, unless such use has been expressly agreed upon and therefore communicated in advance. Any complaints regarding apparent defects must be notified to the selling company, under penalty of forfeiture, by registered letter with return receipt within 8 days of delivery of the goods. Any complaints regarding hidden defects, not identifiable through diligent inspection at the time of delivery, must be notified to the seller by registered letter with return receipt, also in this case under penalty of forfeiture, within 8 days from the date of discovery of the defect. Special Warranty for “Pentachlorophenol, Azo Colorants, Chromium VI, and Formaldehyde”: The selling company will provide this specific warranty, undertaking to replace defective products (exceeding legal percentage limits), provided that: The buyer, in consultation with a representative of the seller (from the choice of the sample), has carried out appropriate laboratory analyzes within 15 days of receipt of the goods. The buyer communicates by registered letter with return receipt the results of the analyses (if indicative of exceeding the limits), specifying the results and transmitting a copy of the report, within 8 days from the outcome of the investigation. The deadline for foreign supplies is extended to 15 days. The dispute arises before the cutting of the leather. In any case, any warranty action for hidden and non-apparent defects cannot be initiated, under penalty of forfeiture, after twelve months from the delivery of the goods.

10. Limitation of Liability

The selling company shall not be liable for indirect damages suffered by the buyer or third parties, nor for damages resulting from force majeure, fortuitous events, or acts of third parties.
