TERMS & CONDITIONS

The following terms shall apply to all sales of Goods by Gino Cerruti UK Ltd to the Buyer (as defined). In these terms and conditions (the "Conditions"), the following words shall have their corresponding meaning:

  1. Subject to clause 3, the Contract will be subject to these Conditions to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (including any terms and conditions the Buyer purports to apply under any purchase order or other document).
  2. Any amendments to these Conditions shall be, and any representations about the Goods shall have no effect unless, expressly agreed in writing and signed by a director or senior sales manager of the Company.
  3. No order placed by the Buyer shall be deemed to be accepted by the Company until a written acknowledgement of order is issued by the Company or (if earlier) payment in full and cleared funds is made and the Company delivers the Goods to the Buyer.
  4. All drawings, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued by the Company and any descriptions or illustrations contained in the Company's brochures are issued for the sole purpose of giving a approximate idea of the Goods described in them. They will not form part of this Contract.
  5. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company, delivery of the Goods shall take place at the Company's place of business. A delivery charge (to the Buyer's address) shall be added to the Contract price for all orders.
  6. Delivery is made upon receipt of payment in cleared funds for all amounts owed by the Buyer to the Company.
  7. If items ordered are not in stock, delivery takes place approximately 10-12 weeks from receipt of order, depending on manufacturing capacities and material availability. Time of delivery shall not be of the essence, and the Company shall not be liable whatsoever for any delay in delivery howsoever arising.
  8. If for any reason the Buyer is not willing or able to accept delivery of any of the Goods when they are ready for delivery:
    1. Risk in the Goods will pass to the Buyer (including for loss or damage caused by the Company's negligence);
    2. the Goods will be deemed to have been delivered; and
    3. the Company may store the Goods until delivery whereupon the Buyer will be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance).
  9. The Company may store the Goods until delivery whereupon the Buyer will be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance).
  10. The Goods are at the risk of the Buyer from the time of despatch.
  11. Ownership of the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the Company has received in full (in cash or cleared funds) all sums due to it in respect of the Goods and any other outstanding costs owed by the Buyer to the Company on any account.
  12. Until ownership has passed, the Buyer must hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as the Company's bailee, safely store and maintain the Goods, and keep them insured against all risks on behalf of the Company (whereupon any moneys in respect of an insurance claim shall be apportioned in respect of the value of the Goods lost or damaged and held on trust for the Company).
  13. Provided that no insolvency or like proceedings have commenced against the Buyer and the Buyer does not, and does not purport to, encumber the Goods, Clauses 12 and 13 shall not prevent the Buyer from selling the Goods on its own behalf at full market value, but any proceeds of sale shall be held on trust for the Company in separate funds to the Buyer's usual trading account and used to discharge any amounts owed by the Buyer to the Company within 3working days of receipt.
  14. Unless otherwise agreed by the Company in writing, the price for the Goods shall be the price set out in the Company's price list published on the date of delivery or deemed delivery.
  15. The price is exclusive of VAT and the costs of loading, unloading, carriage and insurance, all of which are payable by the Buyer in addition to the quoted price when payment for Goods is due.
  16. Payment shall be made in full and in cleared funds prior to delivery. Timing of payment shall be of the essence. Payment maybe made either by Sterling Cheques, by Credit/Debit card or by bank transfer. We do not offer credit to retailers as this helps us to keep prices highly competitive and the business relationship is more positive about the product.
  17. Where alternative payment terms have been agreed with the Company and payments have not been paid in full by their due date, interest shall accrue on the outstanding amount from such due date, at the annual rate of 3% above the base lending rate of the BARCLAYS Bank PLC from time to time, compounding monthly until payment in full is made, whether before or after any judgment.
  18. The Company warrants that (subject to the other provisions of these Conditions) at the time of delivery, the Goods will be of satisfactory quality within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979, as amended, and the Company shall not be liable for a breach of this warranty unless notified in writing within 3 working days of delivery.
  19. All warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law (save for the conditions implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979, as amended) are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract.
  20. Nothing in these Conditions excludes or limits the liability of the Company for death or personal injury caused by the Company's negligence.
  21. Subject to clauses 8, 20 and 21 above, the total liability of the Company for any claim brought by the Buyer (whether under contract, tort or otherwise) shall not exceed the price of the Goods. In any event, the Company shall not be liable for any loss (direct, indirect or consequential), claims, costs, damages, expenses or otherwise (howsoever caused) arising under or in connection with the Contract.
  22. The Contract shall be subject to the laws of England and Wales and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
  23. EXCLUSIVITY: Gino Cerruti UK Limited does offer exclusivity of the Gino Cerruti brand in a specific geographical area, based upon the demographic and distance calculation.
