GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
  1. Applications of the General terms and conditions of sale – Both verbal and written offers are not binding on CARRARA S.p.A.. Orders that are received by the same and any concluded agreements with commercial employees and/or sales agents are understood to be accepted, formalised and therefore effective in accordance with the law, only if expressly confirmed in writing by the legal representative of the CARRARA S.p.A., or by persons with powers of ordinary and extraordinary administration and representation of the company towards third parties. However, CARRARA S.p.A. reserves the right to: a) restate the offer which was originally based on theoretical data; b) vary the offer if the cost of raw material and/or the exchange rate change compared to those considered to issue the offer; c) vary the price list at any time by notifying the customer in writing; d) not to accept orders.
  2. Prices – The provision shall apply the prices in force at the time of delivery and/or shipment of the goods, and always expressly confirmed in writing by CARRARA S.p.A.. Unless otherwise agreed, prices are always relevant to goods delivered ex-works CARRARA S.p.A., with packing at purchaser’s expenses.
  3. Packaging – In the absence of specific requirements and/or agreements, the choice of packaging is made by CARRARA S.p.A., in accordance with the professional rules of common experience, and in the manner deemed most appropriate to ensure the integrity of the product. The packaging will be invoiced at the price defined by CARRARA S.p.A., regardless of whether rendered by the Purchaser.
  4. Testing – The material is regularly checked and tested at CARRARA S.p.A. before shipping, therefore if further joint testing is requested, the same must be done at CARRARA S.p.A. depots, with fees and costs to be reimbursed by the Purchaser, as well as if testing were to be agreed upon elsewhere.
  5. Transport – The goods supplied are shipped at the Purchaser’s own risk and/or peril although for specific arrangements should be sold free of carriage. The shipment method, unless otherwise agreed, will be decided by CARRARA S.p.A., but without assuming any responsibility in this regard.
  6. Deliveries – CARRARA S.p.A. strives to meet the needs of customers, but the delivery dates confirmed in writing are indicative and not binding for CARRARA S.p.A., which is therefore not required to pay indemnity for any direct or indirect damage due to delivery delays, and/or interruptions and/or partial and/or total resolutions of delivery. Where the purchaser intends to make peremptory the terms of delivery, these must agree in advance with CARRARA S.p.A. and must be clearly indicated in the order confirmation. The goods supplied are sold with retention of title until full payment is received.
  7. Payments – Unless otherwise agreed, contractual payment shall be met upon receipt of the goods ready notice or upon delivery of the goods, by payment in cash and/or other equivalent means of payment, at the administrative office of CARRARA S.p.A.. From the day following the payment due date interest for late payment will automatically be applied, pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 231/02 and, consequently, the purchaser shall be obliged to pay the default interest rate to CARRARA S.p.A., equal to the official reference rate in force at the time of default, plus 3 (three) percentage points. A similar payment charge of default interest will be charged to the Purchaser in case of late payment due to delay in delivery, damage and/or partial and/or total loss occurring during transport as well as in any other case of non-withdrawal by the Purchaser of the goods ready for delivery at the warehouses of CARRARA S.p.A.
  8. Express termination clause – In case of failure and/or delay in payment, the parties agree to, in accordance with Art. 1456 of the Italian civil code, the termination of this contract and the loss of the benefit of the term.

The provision may be suspended until the settlement of the invoice. The provision times will be automatically extended for a period equal to the delay of payment by the customer; payment will be increased by the costs incurred by CARRARA S.p.A., as a result of the suspension and of interest on arrears. Failure to pay the amounts due within the agreed time and failure to collect and/or acceptance of products sold, will result in, without any requirement of advance notice or formal obligation, the resolution of the order, subject to imposition, in accordance with the terms provided by law, the provision of the order. In addition, all refunds, discounts or other special benefits that have not been applied and paid prior to such termination shall remain legally acquired by CARRARA S.p.A., if necessary also retrospectively, as contractual indemnities or penalties.

Right of withdrawal – No order issued by the Purchaser may be cancelled totally and/or partially by the same, without first having notified in writing CARRARA S.p.A., which will charge with the same payment terms mentioned in the offer of sale, costs incurred up to that time, and reserves the right to invoice all the goods produced.
