These Terms and Conditions constitute a legally binding agreement made between you, whether personally or on behalf of an entity (“you”) and QuickSync (“we,” “us” or “our”), concerning your access to and use of the Web Site as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile Web Site or application related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto (collectively, the “Service”).
You agree that by accessing the Services, you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by all of these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with all of these Terms and Conditions, then you are expressly prohibited from using the Services and you must discontinue use immediately.
Supplemental terms and conditions or documents that may be posted on the Services from time to time are hereby expressly incorporated herein by reference. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Terms and Conditions at any time and for any reason.
Scope And General Provisions
Our following Terms and Conditions shall apply exclusively. Any terms and conditions of the purchaser that conflict with or deviate from our terms and conditions shall not be recognised. Our terms and conditions shall also apply if the customer refers to its own terms and conditions of purchase in its order or order confirmation. Deviations from these terms and conditions shall only be effective if confirmed by us in writing.
Our terms and conditions shall also apply to all future transactions with the customer, even if they are not expressly agreed again.
Contractual rights may only be transferred to third parties by mutual agreement. However, purchase price claims and other purely monetary claims are freely transferable.
Offers And Scope Of Order
Our offers, prices and delivery times are subject to change and non-binding. An order shall only be deemed to have been accepted when it has been confirmed by us in writing. Our written order confirmation shall be decisive for the scope of delivery.
Ancillary agreements require our written confirmation in order to be effective.
All information contained in our catalogues, brochures, price lists or other advertising material is determined to the best of our knowledge on the date of fixing. We reserve the right to make any changes that may become necessary at a later date.
Obvious printing and typing errors as well as mistakes made by our employees can be corrected and entitle us under certain circumstances to withdraw from an order without the client being able to assert claims of any kind against us.
Unless otherwise stated in our order confirmation.
Statutory value added tax is not included in our prices; it must be added to the agreed price at the statutory rate applicable at the time the contract is concluded.
The deduction of cash discount or other discounts requires special written agreement.
For orders for larger quantities of the same article, our quantity-related individual prices shall apply. This shall also apply to call-off orders if and to the extent that fixed dates for partial deliveries were determined when the order was placed. In determining the respective list prices, each order shall be treated separately. A subsequent increase in an order already placed or a subsequent order shall therefore not affect the individual price of the original offer.
Terms Of Payment
The purchase price is payable without deduction immediately on checkout. In the case of partial deliveries, this shall apply to each individual partial delivery.
We shall be entitled to set off payments against the customer's older debt first, despite any provisions of the customer to the contrary, and shall inform the customer of the type of set-off effected. If costs and interest have already been incurred, we shall be entitled to set off the payment first against the costs, then against the interest and finally against the principal claim, even if the former relate to previous deliveries. Means of payment other than cash shall only be accepted for the purpose of fulfilment. Payment shall be deemed to have been made when we can freely dispose of the equivalent value.
Any bank charges shall be borne by the customer. The acceptance of bills of exchange requires special agreement.
If the customer is in default of payment, we shall be entitled to charge interest on arrears at a rate of 8% above the respective base interest rate. The assertion of further damage caused by default remains unaffected by this. The customer shall, however, be entitled to prove that we have suffered no damage or significantly less damage as a result of the default.
If the customer is in default with his payments or if we become aware of circumstances which call into question the creditworthiness of the customer, we shall be entitled to declare all our claims due and payable, even if we have accepted cheques or bills of exchange for payments already due. Furthermore, we are entitled to demand advance payments or securities for the further fulfilment of the contract. In any case, we shall have a right of retention to the delivery item until the advance payment or provision of security demanded by us has been made.
The customer is only entitled to set-off or retention if his counterclaims have been legally established, are undisputed or have been recognised by us. Furthermore, he is only entitled to exercise a right of retention insofar as his counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.
The Customer agrees to contact QuickSync prior to raising a request for a chargeback or any dispute with your bank or card issuer in relation to any Transaction. If the Customer makes a card payment through QuickSync, and later disputes a legitimate charge by raising a chargeback without merit or legitimate reason (as determined at QuickSync's sole discretion), whether fraudulently or otherwise, then QuickSync reserves the right to blacklist the Customer by providing compelling evidence to refute the Customer's invalid chargeback request and or pursue legal action as the case may be.
Delivery periods begin with the dispatch of the order confirmation. Their commencement presupposes the clarification of all technical details, in particular the provision of the documents, approvals and releases to be procured by the customer, as well as the receipt of an agreed down payment (if any).
Subsequent changes requested by the customer shall lead to a reasonable extension of the delivery period.
In the event of our delay in delivery, claims for damages due to non-fulfilment can only be asserted if the delay is due to intent or gross negligence.
If the customer is in arrears with payments - also from previous deliveries - we are entitled to withhold the delivery until such time. until all outstanding invoice amounts have been settled. This does not apply insofar as the customer can invoke a right to refuse performance on his part.
Retention Of Title
We retain title to the delivery item until all claims arising from the business relationship with the customer have been settled in full.
Pledging or transfer of ownership by way of security is not permitted. The customer hereby assigns to us all claims in the amount of our invoice amount which accrue to him from the resale against his customers or third parties. We are entitled to collect these claims ourselves if the purchaser does not properly fulfil his payment obligations from the proceeds, defaults on payment or if there is a significant deterioration in his financial circumstances, in particular if an application for the opening of insolvency proceedings has already been filed or if payments have been suspended. In this case, the customer is obliged to provide the information required for collection, in particular to name the names and addresses of the third-party debtors as well as the assigned claims and to hand over the associated documents, as well as to inform the debtors (third parties) of the assignment.
In the event of seizures or other interventions by third parties, the purchaser must inform us immediately in writing so that we can take legal action. Any costs of interventions shall be borne by the purchaser.
In the event of a breach of contract by the customer - in particular in the event of default in payment - we shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract and to take back the delivery item at the customer's expense or, if applicable, to demand assignment of the customer's claim for return against third parties. After taking back the delivery item, we shall be entitled to realise it. The proceeds of the realisation shall be set off against the liabilities of the customer less reasonable realisation costs.
If the realisable value of our securities exceeds the claims to be secured by more than 10%, we undertake to release the securities to which we are entitled at the request of the customer. The selection of the securities to be released shall be incumbent upon us.
