a. These terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) together with the written quotation (“Quotation”) shall govern the sale and provision by SGX Europe Sp. z o.o. (“SGX Europe”) of any goods and any related services (“Products”) to the Customer and shall prevail over and apply in precedence to any other document, term or condition.

Any other additional or differing terms and conditions proposed by the Customer concerning any Products shall be deemed proposals for modification of these Terms and Conditions, but shall be deemed objected to and of no effect unless expressly agreed-to in writing by an authorized representative of SGX Europe. No Contract shall come into existence unless and until a written acknowledgement of Order is issued by SGX Europe. Where there is conflict between any provisions of these Terms and Conditions and a Quotation, the provisions in the Quotation shall prevail.
b. Products are only available and prices are only valid as stated in a Quotation. Unless otherwise stated, a Quotation is valid for 30 (thirty) days from its date unless it is withdrawn or extended in writing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SGX Europe shall have the right, at any time, to increase the price of any Product with respect to which SGX Europe’s cost of raw materials and purchased components included in the Product increases by 5% or more. Any such price increase shall become effective upon written notice to the Customer accompanied by a statement from SGX Europe confirming that such costs have increased by 5% or more.
c. In the event that the Customer requests amendments to the description of Products in the Quotation issued by SGX Europe, such requested amendments shall only be accepted if SGX Europe, in SGX Europe’s sole discretion, provides the Customer an order acknowledgement endorsed “Amended”. The quantity, quality and description of the Products shall be as set out in the Quotation or Amended Quotation, if any, issued by SGX Europe.
d. If any provision of the Contract is held by a court or other competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part the validity of the other provisions of the Contract and the remainder of the provision in question shall not be affected.
e. No waiver by SGX Europe of any breach of the Contract by the Customer shall be considered as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.

Unless the Parties agree otherwise in writing, payment shall be in the currency specified in the Quotation and, unless otherwise agreed, shall be due and payable in full within 14 (fourteen) days of the date of the invoice or in advance under a pro forma invoice. SGX Europe shall send the invoice to the Customer together with the Products on the date of Product delivery (or, if the Products are services, upon commencement of those services), or, if SGX Europe is unable by reason of instructions or lack of instructions from the Customer to deliver the Products, SGX Europe shall invoice the Customer upon the intended date of delivery. Upon subsequent delivery of the delayed Products, SGX Europe shall invoice the Customer for storage in accordance with Clause 3c.
b. If SGX Europe at any time determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that the Customer is not trustworthy, including in financial terms, or may be unable to pay, in full and in a timely manner, all amounts due to SGX Europe, SGX Europe shall have the right to require payment in full, before delivery of any Product.
c. In the event the Customer orders quantities of Products with associated price breaks and fails to take these quantities within the agreed timescales for delivery then SGX Europe reserves the right to amend the prices according to the actual quantity of Products delivered to the Customer.
d. The Customer is not entitled to withhold or set off any sums due under invoices received from SGX Europe.
e. Where the Customer challenges the amount under an invoice, the Customer shall notify SGX Europe thereof within 15 (fifteen) days of the date of invoice. If the Customer’s dispute is held valid, SGX Europe shall credit the Customer the disputed amount in the next invoice to the Customer.
f. If the Customer fails to pay any sum due to SGX Europe by its due date, the Customer shall pay to SGX Europe, in addition to such sum or sums due, interest thereon at the prevailing statutory rate on late payment, calculated on a daily basis together with any additional costs and expenses incurred by SGX Europe and SGX Europe may at its sole discretion and without liability postpone delivery or cancel all or part of the Contract or any other contract between the Customer and SGX Europe without prejudice to any other right or remedy which SGX Europe may have against the Customer in respect of such default.
g. All payments due under the Contract shall be paid in gross amounts by the Customer, in particular the Customer is obliged to pay all taxes and customs duties.

(i) which is due to SGX Europe having followed a design or instruction furnished or given by the Customer, or to the use of the Products or part thereof in a manner or for a purpose or in a country not specified or disclosed to SGX Europe, or
(ii) which is due to the use of the Products or parts thereof together with or in combination with any other article, material or apparatus, or
(iii) where SGX Europe procures for the Customer the right to continue to use the Products or parts thereof or SGX has modified or replaced the Products or parts thereof.

(i) the Customer giving to SGX Europe the earliest possible notice in writing of any claim being made or action being threatened or brought against the Customer;

SGX may exercise any of the rights herein without any liability and without prejudice to any other right or remedy to which SGX Europe may be entitled by operation of law or otherwise, including without limitation the right to recover SGX’s costs with respect to work in progress and incidental costs. In addition, if any Force Majeure Event occurs and SGX Europe terminates the Contract, SGX Europe shall be entitled to retain any deposit or other amount paid by the Customer as of the date on which notice of such termination is provided, it being the express intent of SGX Europe and the Customer that the Customer shall bear the risk of loss of its deposit or other amounts paid to SGX prior to delivery as a result of any Force Majeure Event.
a. All changes, modifications and amendments to the Contract must be agreed by the parties in writing.
