Delivery shall be FCA in accordance with current INCOTERMS unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties. The risk of the goods shall pass to the Buyer when the goods are made available to the Buyer at the business address of the Company.

6. Time of delivery

If a delivery time has been stated to the Buyer, such time shall have been determined to the best of the Company's judgement and taking into consideration the situation prevailing at the time of the quotation being submitted or the agreement entered into. If the Company should reach a situation covered by clause 10 or should otherwise have difficulties in delivering on time due to non-delivery from suppliers or breakdown of operating equipment at the Company, the delivery time shall be postponed for as long as such circumstances last. In the event of any such obstacle arising, the Company shall as soon as possible inform the Buyer hereof.

If the cause of a delay differs from the above-mentioned, the Buyer shall be entitled to terminate the agreement if the delay is considered substantial when compared to the general rules of Danish law. The Buyer shall, however, inform the Company in advance of this situation and in view of the circumstance give a reasonable time limit for the Company to attempt delivery. The Buyer shall be obliged to buy a proportion of the delivery and pay a pro rata share hereof. The Buyer shall not be entitled to claim compensation for indirect losses, e.g. operating losses, loss of income or any other consequential losses.

To the extent that such reservation of title is valid according to current law, the goods sold shall remain the property of the Company until they have been paid for in full.

8. Payment

Payment shall be made cash on delivery unless otherwise agreed or as stated on the invoice. In the event, that the Company has prepared a quotation, the prices stated in the quotation shall apply. Otherwise sales shall be made at the list and catalogue prices valid on the date of the order confirmation. See however the following.

Immediately upon delivery the Buyer shall inspect the purchased goods. In the event of the Buyer intending to make a claim in connection with a defect, the Buyer shall be obliged to inform the Company in writing immediately after he has discovered such defect, indicating the nature of the defect. If the Buyer has discovered or should have discovered the defect and does not make a complaint as stated, the Buyer shall not be entitled to submit a claim later. The Company shall be entitled to decide whether any defective goods shall be repaired or replaced. If no remedial action is taken within reasonable time, the Buyer shall be entitled to terminate the agreement, claim purchase price reduction or compensation in accordance with the Danish general rules of law. In the event of the Buyer failing to make a claim against the Company concerning a defect within a period of one year after delivery, the Buyer forfeits the right to make any subsequent claim in connection with the defect. Modifications made to goods sold or interference with such goods without the Company’s prior written acceptance shall release the Company from any obligation. If the Buyer has complained and it becomes apparent that there is no defect, the Company shall be entitled to compensation for the work and the costs imposed on the Company by the complaint. The Buyer shall not be entitled to claim compensation for indirect losses, e.g. operating losses, loss of income or any other consequential losses.

11. Returned goods

We accept returned goods only by a previous written agreement.  Mistaken goods will if they are returned be credited 100%.  Other goods which are returned as per agreement are credited with a deduction of 15% whereas the purchaser covers the freight costs. As a principal rule it is not possible to return an article specially made or specially procured.

Thus, the Company shall not be liable for damage or injuries arising from products manufactured by the Buyer or from a component of the product manufactured by the Buyer. The Company shall not be liable for loss of profits, lost earnings and other consequential loss. The above limitations shall not apply if the Company is guilty of gross negligence. The Buyer shall indemnify the Company to such an extent as the Company's liability has been limited under the above clauses insofar as any third-party product liability is imposed on the Company. In the event of third parties filing any liability claims against either party under this clause, the one party shall immediately inform the other party hereof.
