Terms and conditions


Susana Traca Distribution Srl terms and conditions of sale:

The term “buyer” means the company, partnership, or other entity identified on the face of the purchase order and signing for acceptance these terms and conditions of sale (“terms”).
Please read this terms very carefully. All sales are subject to, and expressly conditioned upon these terms. No variation of these terms will be binding upon Susana Traca Distribution Srl (“ST”) unless, and to the limited extent, expressly agreed to in writing and signed by an authorized representative of ST, and these terms shall prevail over any terms of business contained in the buyer’s documentation.

1. General Terms

1.1. All sales by ST will be subject to these Terms, which supersede and replace all prior sale conditions or agreements existing between the parties, as well as any representation, oral or written, and/or any communication between ST and Buyer relating to the subject matter hereof.

1.2. Buyer’s Proposal Purchase Order (as defined in article 3.1), solely to the extent accepted by ST pursuant to article 3.3 and subject to these Terms, will constitute Buyer’s contract with ST for the purchase of the Products. Any additional or conflicting agreements, whether oral or in writing, entered into prior to, contemporaneously with or subsequent to the execution of the Proposal Purchase Order, shall not apply unless expressly agreed to in writing between ST and Buyer, in accordance with article 1.3.

1.3. ST reserves the right to amend these Terms at any time, such amendments being binding on Buyer upon its signature. Save where expressly provided herein, none of these Terms may be added to, modified, superseded or otherwise altered except by a written instrument signed by an authorized representative of ST and delivered by ST to the Buyer.

2. Show-room events and Products.

2.1. ST regularly holds seasonal “show-room” events during the calendar year so as to present its Products to prospective buyers (Show-Room Events) and solicit their interest in submitting to ST a Proposal Purchase Order for the purchase of Products. Invitation to attend such events shall be at ST’s unfettered discretion. Invitations to a Show-Room event shall neither impose any obligation on ST to accept any Proposal Purchase Order.

2.2. ST retains all rights to change the Products and/or their range and/or to discontinue the offering for sale of any Product model at its sole discretion. Moreover, ST is free to solicit Proposal Purchase Orders in relation to certain limited lines of Products only.

2.3. Buyer may place orders only if solicited to do so by ST and/or invited to the Show Room Events.

3. Proposal Purchase Order

3.1. For each Proposal purchase of the Products from ST, the Buyer shall complete and submit to ST, ST’s model-form of purchase order (“Model-Form”) which shall be distributed by ST during the Show Room Events (if the Buyer has been invited thereto) and/or at any other time (if the Buyer has been solicited to do so by ST) (“Proposal Purchase Order”).

3.2. Each such Proposed Purchase Order shall identify the quantity requested and all other relevant information specified in the Model-Form. Once submitted to ST, Buyer may modify the Proposed Purchase Order in writing within 7 days of the day of its original submission to ST.

3.3. A Proposal Purchase Order may be accepted by ST, in whole or in part, by means of a written confirmation sent by ST to Buyer (“Confirmation of Acceptance”) at which point a contract (“Contract”) shall be created subject to these Terms. Unless Buyer receives ST’s Confirmation of Acceptance within three months of the date the Proposal Purchase Order was placed with ST, such Proposal Purchase Order shall be presumed NOT to have been accepted by ST and it shall be deemed cancelled by Buyer.

3.4. The submission of a Proposal Purchase Order to ST constitutes Buyer’s offer to purchase the specified Products from ST which, as such, may be accepted or rejected by ST in its absolute discretion, thereby not giving rise to any claim or expectation from Buyer. Likewise, ST’s acceptance of one or more Proposal Purchase Orders shall neither impose any obligation on ST, nor give rise to any claim or expectation from Buyer, in relation to future orders and/or as to the existence of a long term relationship between the parties. IT IS UNDERSTOOD AND EXPRESSLY ACCEPTED BY BUYER THAT, NOTWITHSTANDING PRIOR SALES, ST SHALL REMAIN FREE, AT ANY TIME, NOT TO ACCEPT SUBSEQUENT PROPOSED PURCHASE ORDERS PLACED BY BUYER, AND SHALL HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO SUPPLY PRODUCTS.

4. Manufacturing/Distribution constraints

4.1. If ST is unable, due to the limited quantities of Products manufactured or other manufacturing/distribution constraints, to supply the total demand for Products listed in the Confirmation of Acceptance, it may allocate its available supply among any or all buyers on a pro rata basis, without liability for any failure of performance which may result therefrom.

5. Prices, Payment and Invoices

5.1. Unless otherwise stated by ST, prices of the Products shall be those quoted, in Euros, by ST to Buyer on or prior to the placement of each Proposal Purchase Order. Errors or omissions are subject to correction by ST. Prices are exclusive of VAT and other taxes as well as of shipping and handling charges, unless different delivery conditions are agreed in writing.

5.2. Pending ST’s Confirmation of Acceptance as per article 3.3, prices quoted in the Proposal Purchase Order may be always adjusted to proportionally reflect the adverse cost impact to ST of intervening or subsequently manifested.

5.3. All prices quotations by ST are subject to change or withdrawal by prior notice to Buyer. Without prejudice to article 5.2. above, price changes shall be effective in relation to any Proposal Purchase Order placed thereafter.

5.4. Payments must be made within the agreed and specified in the “Proposal Purchase Order”, or in the sales invoice issued by ST. (Unless agreed otherwise, ST requires pre-payment of the purchase price prior to delivery of the Products. An invoice to that effect will be sent to Buyer together with the Confirmation of Acceptance and the relative purchase price shall be paid within 10 (ten) days of receipt thereof by Buyer).

5.5. In the event payment conditions differ from pre-payment, ST may at any time re-evaluate Buyer’s credit standing. If ST determines in its sole discretion that Buyer fails to qualify for any granted payment condition, then ST is authorized to change the terms of payment in full or in part, in respect of any Proposal Purchase Orders not yet accepted by ST, with notice to Buyer or to withdraw the preceding credit terms including, but not limited to, requiring advance payment, guarantees or other security.

If delinquent amounts remain unpaid 15 (fifteen) calendar days after such written notice, then ST may at its option, in addition to any other remedy available at law or pursuant to these Terms:
(a) declare Buyer in breach for the purposes of article 11 and terminate the relevant Contract, selling any undelivered Products on hand for the account of Buyer and apply such proceeds (to the extent actually obtained by ST as a result of the sale of the Products) as a credit against the purchase price. In such an event, Buyer shall take all risks that the sale made by ST will result in a depreciation of the Products and/or that only a few Products will be ultimately sold as a result of market conditions. Moreover, it is understood that Buyer will in any event pay the balance then due to ST on demand, together with all costs, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney and accounting fees and other expenses of collection reasonably resulting from any default by Buyer in relation to any of these Terms (“Costs”);
(b) withhold performance including, but not limited to, other Contracts until all delinquent amounts and late interest, if any, and Costs are paid;
(c) to the extent Products have been already delivered to Buyer, repossess the Products for which payment has not been made and, for such purpose Buyer hereby authorizes ST and/or its relevant agents or subcontractors to enter into Buyer’s premises at which such Products are, at the relevant time, stored;
(d) deliver future Products on a pre-payment basis only and/or set off Buyer’s outstanding debt with the sums eventually given for any payment of other sales;
(e) charge storage and inventory carrying fees on Products, for an amount of EURO 150 per day, starting 72 hours after the day on which Buyer is informed that he shall take delivery of the Products;
(f) recover all Costs;
