C3 Terms and Conditions of Sale


Terms are NET 30 days from date of invoice in U.K. funds, to customers who have established satisfactory ratings with our credit department.


All orders are subject to final acceptance by the management of C3 (Seller). Acceptance of any order, whether by acknowledgement or shipment of products, does not constitute acceptance by Seller of any terms or conditions contained in such order, except the identification and quantity of products ordered.


Products will be shipped F.O.B. point of shipment, with title and risk of loss passing to Buyer upon delivery to carrier at the point of shipment. Seller will exercise all reasonable means to make shipment within the time specified but assumes no liability for loss or damage, for late delivery.


Orders for immediate shipment will be billed at the price in effect on the date of order receipt. For releases against orders specifying future dated shipments, each release will be invoiced at the price in effect on the date of shipment. Prices are subject to change without notice.


Buyer is responsible for evaluating and determining whether Product(s) is suitable and appropriate for Buyerís particular use and intended application. The conditions of evaluation, selection, and use of Product(s) can vary widely and affect the use and intended application of Product(s). Because many of these conditions are uniquely within Buyerís knowledge and control, Buyer must evaluate and determine whether Product(s) is suitable and appropriate for a particular use and intended application.


The products are made to Sellerís specifications and reflect product commensurate with Seller's manufacturing process capabilities. Material not in accordance with Seller's specifications shall be called to our attention immediately. No authorization will be given for return of materials held longer than 90 days after the date of shipment from C3's facility. If authorization is given for return, return shipment is to be made within 10 days of receipt of authorization.


The products sold to Buyer under the order are subject to U.K. export laws and regulations. Buyer agrees to comply with all applicable U.K. export control laws and regulations.


Seller warrants to Buyer that, at the time of delivery to Buyer, the products will conform to Sellerís specifications. This warranty shall apply for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of shipment from Sellerís facility. THIS WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE. SELLER MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY ARISING OUT OF A COURSE OF DEALING OR PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE. If during the ninety (90) day period: (a) the Buyer notifies the Seller promptly in writing upon discovery of any non-conforming products, including a detailed description of such non-conformance, (b) such products are returned to Seller, F.O.B. to Sellerís facility, and (c) Sellerís examination of such products discloses to Sellerís satisfaction that such products do not conform to the foregoing warranty, Buyerís exclusive remedy and Sellerís sole obligation shall be, at Sellerís option, to repair or replace the non-conforming product or refund the purchase price.


Except where prohibited by law, Seller

SHALL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO BUYER FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, BUSINESS, OPPORTUNITY, OR GOODWILL) RESULTING FROM OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO SELLERíS PRODUCTS OR THE SALE OF SELLERíS PRODUCTS. This limitation of liability applies regardless of the legal or equitable theory under which such losses or damages are sought including breach of contract, breach of warranty, negligence, strict liability, or any other legal or equitable theory. This limitation of liability does not apply to claims for personal injury by a third party or direct damages due to breach of a material obligation under an order.


Neither Seller nor Buyer shall be liable for failure to perform (except for payment by Buyer for Product(s) received) if performance is prevented, restricted, or interfered with by reason of any event or condition beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to: Fire or earthquake or other casualty or accident; inability to procure materials, power, or supplies; war or other violence; any law, order, proclamation, regulation, ordinance, demand, or requirement of any government agency, court, or intergovernmental body; or environmental, health, safety, or regulatory reason as reasonably determined by Seller. A party, when so affected and upon giving notice, shall be excused from such performance to the extent of such prevention, restriction, or interference; provided that the affected party shall use its reasonable efforts to avoid or remove such reason for non-performance and shall promptly resume performance whenever such reason is removed. In the event of back-order or other limited supply or availability of Product(s) for such reason or any other reason, Seller reserves the right, in its sole discretion and in a manner that it determines to be fair and reasonable under the circumstances, to allocate production capacity related to and/or supply of Product(s) that is in back-order or limited supply.


Cancellation of an order, of any part thereof, shall be subject to the following terms: Buyer shall pay the contract price of all goods that have been completed. In addition to such payment, the Buyer shall pay whatever portion of the contract price that is equal to the degree of completion of goods in process, effective on the date cancellation is received. Further, the quantity of parts received by the Buyer plus the quantity of work in process must be the total quantity that sets the selling price. A retroactive billing will be made against the corrected quantity selling price as a part of cancellation charges.


Technical information and data, recommendations, and other statements provided by Seller are based on information, tests, or experience which Seller believes to be reliable, but the accuracy or completeness of such information is not guaranteed. Such technical information and data are intended for persons with knowledge and technical skills sufficient to assess and apply their own informed judgement to the information. No license under any Seller or third party intellectual property rights is granted or implied with this information.


Seller and Buyer agree to resolve any claims or disputes arising from or relating to an order, agreement or Product(s) by the following sequence of exclusive dispute resolution methods: (a) Good faith negotiations; (b) if necessary, non-binding mediation using a mutually acceptable neutral mediator in accordance with rules and procedures as the mediator shall reasonably establish (c) as a last resort, either party may commence litigation, provided, however, that any lawsuit shall be commenced in a UK court of competent jurisdiction for the principal place of business of the party against which the lawsuit is filed, and each party consents to the personal jurisdiction of such court. Nothing in this section shall preclude either party from taking any action reasonably necessary to prevent immediate and irreparable harm to that party; provided, however, that any such party remains obligated to resolve the underlying claim or dispute giving rise to such action by means of the dispute resolution methods of this section. A party shall commence efforts to resolve a claim or dispute no later than one year after the cause of action accrues.


All sales and excise taxes, now or hereafter imposed on the sale of goods covered by this quotation shall be for the account of the Buyer.


Orders for special parts made to Buyerís design are accepted with the understanding that the Buyer will defend at its own expense any suit that may be brought against it or Seller by reason of Sellerís manufacture of such parts. Unless otherwise stipulated, Seller reserves the right to have its name or trademark appear on each piece and to use in our display on advertising any pieces or illustration of same.


No part of these Terms and Conditions may be amended, modified, supplemented, or waived in any manner whatsoever (including course of dealing or of performance or usage of trade) unless agreed to in writing signed by authorized representatives Seller and Buyer. Neither Seller nor Buyer may assign an order or agreement of which these Terms and Conditions are a part without the prior written consent of the other party. The validity, performance, and construction of these Terms and Conditions, an order, or agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with laws of England and Wales without regard to conflict of law principles. The UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not apply. These Terms and Conditions shall become part of every order, sale, and purchase agreement between Buyer and Seller for Product(s), and any terms or conditions of Buyer or by operation of law that conflict with, differ from or add to them will not become part of an order or agreement unless specifically agreed to in writing by Seller or required by law. All orders are governed exclusively by these Terms and Conditions.
