In these Terms and Conditions of Sale, “BIOCHEMTECH” means the seller, Biochemtech SRL company; "Buyer" means the person, firm, company or corporation by whom the order is placed. BIOCHEMTECH and the Buyer will sometimes be referred to herein individually as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties”. By submitting an order for the BIOCHEMTECH products (“Products”) whether by telephone, email, on the website or other ways of communication, Buyer confirms acceptance of the terms and conditions (“Terms”) contained herein.
1. Offer, Confirmation or Agreement
Any Offer is expressly made conditional on Buyer's assent to all of the terms contained in the Offer without deviation. Acceptance by Buyer of an Offer may be evidenced by (i) Buyer's written or verbal assent or the written or verbal assent of any representative of Buyer, (ii) Buyer's acceptance of delivery of the Products or any such acceptance by any representative of Buyer, or (iii) other conduct by Buyer or any representative of Buyer consistent with acceptance of the Offer.
In the event that any Offer or Confirmation is sent in response to Buyer's blanket purchase order, the terms and conditions of that Offer or Confirmation, including these Terms and Conditions, shall apply to any delivery by BIOCHEMTECH, irrespective of whether Buyer submits additional purchase orders (electronically or otherwise) and whether BIOCHEMTECH provides a Confirmation to such additional purchase orders. All terms and conditions of such documents by Buyer are hereby rejected.
BIOCHEMTECH’s Offers are open for acceptance within the period stated by BIOCHEMTECH in the Offer or, when no period is stated, within thirty (30) days from the date of the Offer, but any Offer may be withdrawn or revoked by BIOCHEMTECH at any time prior to the receipt by BIOCHEMTECH of Buyer's acceptance related thereto.
If BIOCHEMTECH receives an order from Buyer for the sale by BIOCHEMTECH and purchase by Buyer of Products and such order is not a response to an Offer by BIOCHEMTECH, or if BIOCHEMTECH receives an order or acceptance by Buyer which deviates from BIOCHEMTECH's Offer, such order or acceptance, respectively, shall be deemed to be a request for an Offer only.
An acceptance by Buyer of any Offer made by an order gatherer, liaison officer, agent or sales representative for BIOCHEMTECH shall constitute an Agreement between BIOCHEMTECH and Buyer upon explicit Confirmation by BIOCHEMTECH itself.
