Article 3 – Applicability

 

Buyer expressly accepts that these General Terms and Conditions apply to every offer of, every order with, every Agreement with and every delivery by Seller. In other words, these General Terms and Conditions govern exclusively the entire commercial relationship between Buyer and Seller and should always be read together with Seller’s General Terms and Conditions for ordinary sales. In the event of contradiction, these General Terms and Conditions shall prevail.

Buyer and Seller expressly agree that Buyer’s terms and conditions of purchase, General Terms and Conditions, etc. do not in any way apply, even tacitly, to the Agreement concluded between Buyer and Seller.

Deviation from these General Terms and Conditions is only possible if the Seller agrees to this in writing.

 

The Seller reserves the right to unilaterally amend its General Terms and Conditions at any time. The Parties expressly agree that the amendment(s) made will automatically apply to the commercial relationship existing between the Buyer and the Seller from the moment of their online publication.

 

Article 4 – Offer, order and order confirmation

 

4.1 Offer

 

Any offer made by the Seller is, as far as it is concerned, free of obligation and non-binding.

 

Each offer of the Seller is subject to the express reservation of availability of the relevant materials. 

 

4.2 Order

 

Buyer places his order using the online catalogue and the form on the Website.

 

By placing an order, the Buyer expressly accepts the price, the characteristics of the materials and the applicability of these General Terms and Conditions to the Agreement to be concluded with the Seller.

 

The Buyer accepts that his order is final from the moment it is placed and therefore cannot be changed, cancelled or revoked, except in the case of written agreement by the Seller.

 

4.3 Order confirmation

 

After the order has been placed by the Buyer, the Buyer will receive an electronic order confirmation from the Seller within 24 hours.

 

From the moment of receipt of this electronic order confirmation by the Buyer, an Agreement arises between the Parties.

 

In this order confirmation, the Buyer’s order is confirmed, with an indication of the (subject to reservation) expected delivery time. The Buyer expressly accepts that the Seller may unilaterally change the specified delivery period.

 

Article 5 – Pricing

 

Unless the Seller expressly stipulates otherwise, the prices quoted by the Seller are expressed in Euros and are exclusive of VAT, packaging and transport costs.

 

The Seller reserves the right to unilaterally change the prices mentioned on the Website.

 

Only if an order is placed by the Buyer and the relevant materials are in stock at the same time, can the Seller guarantee the price indicated on the Website.

 

Article 6 – Payment

 

6.1. Generalities and retention of title

 

The materials ordered by the Buyer remain the property of the Seller until full payment of the price by the Buyer to the Seller.

 

Each order by the Buyer is made with the express obligation on the part of the Buyer to pay the total price of the materials ordered to the Seller.

 

If the Buyer’s payment cannot be received 100% when the order is placed, the Seller reserves the right to postpone the acceptance and delivery/pick-up of the order.

 

6.2. Invoicing

 

Buyers who place an order for the first time pay the full price by credit card when finalizing the order.

 

Buyers who are already known in the Seller’s system are given the choice between (i) paying the full price by credit card when finalizing the order OR (ii) paying the invoice handed over to the Buyer at the time of delivery/collection. Where applicable, the invoice must be paid no later than 30 days after the date of the invoice, failing which the Buyer shall automatically and without notice of default be liable to pay interest equal to the interest rate laid down in the Law of 2 August 2002, plus a fixed compensation of 10% of the amount of the invoice.

 

Article 7 – Delivery / pick-up

 

7.1. General information

 

When placing his order, the Buyer may choose between either collecting the order independently or having the order delivered by the Seller, except if the Seller does not allow the materials to be collected for security or other reasons.

 

Both delivery and collection can only take place from the moment that the Seller has received the total price of the order from the Buyer. The Buyer expressly acknowledges and accepts that the Seller has the right to postpone the date of delivery/collection until full receipt of the total price.

 

7.2. Pick-up

 

Collection will take place at the address stated in the order confirmation and is only possible at the time indicated by the Seller. If Buyer fails to collect his materials on time, the arrangement in Article 7.5. of these General Terms and Conditions shall apply.

 

Buyer accepts that the loading, stacking and fastening of the goods takes place at its own risk. Transport is also at the sole risk of the Buyer, who must also provide suitable transport for the materials.

 

7.3. Delivery

 

In case of delivery, the Buyer must provide a delivery address. This address cannot be changed after placing the order, except in case of explicit written agreement of the Seller. The Buyer expressly accepts that he bears the risk of the accessibility of the delivery address provided by him. If the specified delivery address proves to be unsuitable for the delivery of the order, the Buyer shall automatically owe the Seller a minimum fixed compensation of EUR 150, without prejudice to the Seller’s right to recover from the Buyer any damage suffered.

 

The Buyer also undertakes to be present at the delivery address at the time of delivery by the Seller. In the absence of the Buyer, the materials shall be returned to the following address of the Seller: for the Wondelgem site: Industrieweg 106, B-9032, Wondelgem; for the Malonne site: 20, Rue Gabriël de Moriamé, B-5020 Malonne, where the Buyer may collect the materials by written agreement with the Seller. The Buyer will find a message about this in his letterbox. Where applicable, the Buyer shall owe a minimum flat-rate sum of EUR 150 to cover the costs of useless transport.

 

Finally, the Buyer accepts that the Seller – in the event of delivery to the Buyer – reserves the exclusive right to unilaterally determine the most suitable packaging and method of dispatch (for example, by splitting it up into partial deliveries). Packaging of materials will not be taken back by the Seller.

 

7.4. Compliance

 

Both in the event of delivery and in the event of collection, the Buyer is deemed to check the materials that are the subject of the Agreement for conformity and any defects.

 

7.5. Buyer’s liability in the event of non-collection or refusal to accept delivery

 

If Buyer fails to collect or take delivery of the materials that are the subject of the Agreement, further storage of the goods shall be at Buyer’s expense and risk, in which connection a minimum fixed amount of EUR 25 per commenced working day shall be charged, without prejudice to Seller’s right to recover its actual loss from Buyer.

 

Seller is entitled to cancel the Agreement after one week’s storage at Buyer’s expense. Where applicable, Buyer shall owe a one-off cancellation fee of 20% of the total amount stated in the order confirmation (with a minimum of EUR 150) and more than the storage costs payable by Buyer, as stated in the paragraph above.

 

Article 8 – Liability

 

8.1. Late delivery

 

The Seller shall only be liable for possible damage as a result of late delivery if an intentional fault or fraud on the part of the Seller or its appointees and/or performance agents is proven.

 

8.2. Non-conformity of materials

  • General

The Seller is in no way deemed to have to consider the concrete use that the Buyer wishes to make of the materials. The Buyer is solely responsible for verifying the technical properties and specifications of the materials with a view to the use he wishes to make of the materials.

Furthermore, the Seller cannot be held liable in any way whatsoever for any damage that may occur as a result of operations carried out or commissioned by the Buyer on the materials.

  • Visible defects

If, during the inspection of the materials at the time of delivery or collection, the Buyer discovers that the goods delivered are not in conformity, he must state this explicitly and in writing on the documents confirming the delivery. The mentioned defects are considered to be exhaustive. In the absence of any notification on the aforementioned documents, the goods shall be deemed to be in conformity.

  • Hidden defects

After receipt of the materials by Buyer (following delivery or collection), Buyer has a period of 8 (eight) calendar days to report any hidden defects to Seller in writing, on pain of forfeiture.

  • Liability of the Seller

If the Buyer proves the presence of visible and/or hidden defects, the Seller shall always have the choice between either taking back the materials in question, after which the Seller shall deliver them again (in conformity) on a date to be determined by the Seller, or paying compensation for the damage proven and suffered by the Buyer (without prejudice to the provisions of Article 8.3. of the present General Terms and Conditions).

 

8.3. Limitation of liability

 

In any event, the Seller’s liability is expressly limited to compensation for the foreseeable, personal and direct damage suffered by the Buyer, up to a maximum of 75% of the amount paid by the Buyer.

 

Buyer’s liability is excluded for all indirect damages, including (but not limited to) loss of profits, loss of customers, loss of opportunities, etc.

 

Any legal claims against the Seller must – on pain of forfeiture – be brought before the competent court within 2 (two) months following the date of the order and shall only be admissible after the Buyer has expressly notified the Seller by registered letter in which the Seller is allowed a reasonable period of time to remedy the situation.

 

Article 9 – Privacy

 

The Seller undertakes that the collection and processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation no. 2016/679, abbreviated as ‘GDPR’ and all other applicable regulations, including the ArcelorMittal Data Protection Procedure and the Privacy Notice.

 

Article 10 – Force majeure

 

If the Seller is confronted with a situation of force majeure, the performance of its obligations will be suspended automatically and by operation of law for as long as the situation of force majeure lasts.

 

If the force majeure situation continues for more than one month, the Seller will be entitled to terminate the Agreement unilaterally, free of charge and with immediate effect.

 

Force majeure is understood to mean any situation that makes it impossible for the Seller, beyond its control, to perform the Agreement concluded with the Buyer, such as but not limited to: natural disasters, wars, strikes, etc.

 

Article 11 – Divisibility

 

Any partial invalidity, nullity or unenforceability of one or more provisions of these General Terms and Conditions shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Where appropriate, the Parties undertake to replace the provision in question with a valid and enforceable clause that approximates the original purpose of the provision in question as closely as possible.

 

Article 12 - No waiver

 

The fact that, by way of exception, the Seller does not invoke compliance with a provision forming part of these General Terms and Conditions may in no way be interpreted as a future waiver.

 

Article 13 – Litigation and applicable law

 

These General Terms and Conditions, as well as the relationship existing between the Parties, are entirely and exclusively governed by the provisions of Belgian law.

 

The courts of Ghent and Namur have exclusive jurisdiction to adjudicate any disputes between the Buyer and the Seller.
