SECO TOOLS GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
SECO TOOLS GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These Seco Tools General Terms and Conditions shall apply to all orders between Seco Tools and the Customer.
“Custom Products” means products created or modified to meet requirements particular to the Customer and that are not in the standard Seco Tools portfolio.
3. ORDERS AND DELIVERY
Any orders placed by the Customer to Seco Tools are subject to the Orgalim S 2022 General Conditions for the Supply of Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Products (available via orgalim.eu or at request from your nearest Seco office) and these Seco Tools General Terms and Conditions, unless otherwise agreed to in a separate, valid written agreement between Seco Tools and the Customer. Seco Tools reserves the right to decline any order. The Customer is aware that the Seco Tools system will submit online queries to the Seco Tools order management system and that information provided to the Customer in reply is valid only at the actual time the query is submitted. Consequently, the information may change in the meantime between the query and the delivery of the product. Furthermore, the Customer’s user account may have been subject to restrictions with respect to credit limits and/or quantity of purchases. Any order in excess of such limits will automatically be rejected by Seco Tools.
Seco Tools strives to deliver the quantity of the Custom Products specified in the Customer’s purchase order. However, the Customer acknowledges that deliveries of Custom Products shall be subject to an operational tolerance variance of ten (10) percent at Seco Tools’ discretion. Seco Tools aims to meet the delivery times provided to the Customer after an order has been placed. However, Seco Tools reserves the right to adjust the delivery time for the entire or parts of any order. Except for orders of Custom Products, if a Customer wishes not to complete a purchase because of such an adjusted delivery time, then the Customer is entitled to cancel the order with respect to the delayed part. Cancellations must be notified without undue delay. The right to cancel is the only and exclusive remedy available to the Customer because of delays.
If the Customer cancels an order for Custom Products, the Customer shall pay to Seco Tools a cancellation charge corresponding to the current status of the order at the time of cancellation:
i. 20 percent (20%) of the order price if the order is cancelled before the start of the design and preparation phase;
ii. 50 percent (50%) of the order price if the order is cancelled after the start of the design and preparation phase but before production begins; or
iii. 100 percent (100%) of the order price if the order is cancelled after production begins.
4. USE OF THE PRODUCTS
The Customer is aware that the products sold by Seco Tools may contain high-speed steel (HSS), cemented carbide, ceramics, PCD, CBN, and different types of metal alloys. To the extent reasonably possible, Seco Tools puts a lot of effort into designing the products with the aim to be safe and not to pose risks to health or property when used. The Customer undertakes to use a product only for its intended purpose and to always comply with applicable recommendations and instructions (provided through product leaflets, descriptions, catalogues, or the similar).
