Terms & Conditions
General: If the following conditions should conflict or be inconsistent with the terms or conditions contained, incorporated, or referred to in any document of the customer, then these conditions shall prevail unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by Assured Systems (UK) Limited, Unit 30, Emerald Way, Stone Business Park, Stone, Staffordshire, ST15 0SR, United Kingdom (referred to as ASSURED SYSTEMS from herein).
To the extent that any clauses of these terms and conditions of sale should prove invalid, the remaining provisions and the contract shall remain valid and binding. Any invalid clauses shall be renegotiated with the intention of replacing such clauses by new provisions with similar economic implications. Such substituted provisions will be binding on both parties.
Payment Terms: All domestic orders will be invoiced at time of shipment and are ex-works ASSURED SYSTEMS with freight costs being paid collect or prepaid by Seller and invoiced to the Buyer. Unless ASSURED SYSTEMS extends credit to Buyer, payment must be received in full before the order is shipped. Upon approval of Buyer’s credit, which is at the sole discretion of ASSURED SYSTEMS, payment terms may be extended up to net 30 days for domestic orders. International orders are only shipped after payment is received in full. On any order for which credit has been extended, ASSURED SYSTEMS shall retain a security interest in all products sold as security for the payment in full of the purchase price, and such security interest shall be satisfied and terminated by full payment.
Late Charge: There will be a 1.5% per month charge on any unpaid balance more than 30 days past-due.
Prices: The prices, quantities and delivery times stated in any quotation shall not be binding on ASSURED SYSTEMS unless and until ASSURED SYSTEMS has confirmed in writing its acceptance of an order placed by the customer in accordance with the quotation. Prices and quotations are subject to change without notice. Prices are in British Pounds Sterling (GBP). Pricing is based on the quantity purchased of a single product part ordered by a single customer under a single non-cancellable, non-changeable purchase order to be shipped on a single invoice or multiple invoices within three (3) months of the order date.
Packaging and Delivery: The specification for packing the products shall be entirely at the discretion of ASSURED SYSTEMS. ASSURED SYSTEMS shall not be obliged to comply with any packaging instructions or requests of the customer unless previously agreed to in writing by ASSURED SYSTEMS. The customer shall be bound to accept the delivery of the products and shall not be entitled to reject delivery or part delivery of the products ordered.
Unless acceptable specific instructions are received from the customer, ASSURED SYSTEMS reserves the right to select a suitable carrier for the products. Delivery of the products in good condition to such a carrier constitutes delivery to the customer at which point the risk and title in the product and/ or products shall pass to the customer. Any mis-delivery or damage shall thereupon be the responsibility of the customer, who may also be responsible for obtaining and paying for insurance and carrying out negotiations in the event of loss, mis-delivery, breakage or other damage regardless of the fact that insurance may have been secured by ASSURED SYSTEMS at the request of the customer.
Drop Shipment: ASSURED SYSTEMS will drop ship orders to domestic addresses within the United Kingdom. Shipments in quantities less than 30% of the total order quantity for which quantity pricing was granted will be charged a £10.00 handling fee for each shipment.
Cancellation Charges: Orders cancelled more than thirty (30) days but less than ninety (90) days from the original date of delivery shall incur a cancellation charge including the full price of any custom materials or products that have been procured or produced, as well as a 20% restocking charge for any other materials that ASSURED SYSTEMS can return to its suppliers or redirect to other committed production. Buyer shall pay this cancellation charge within 10 (ten) days from such cancellation notice. Orders may not be cancelled within thirty (30) days of scheduled delivery.
