1. Period of Validity
These Terms and Conditions of Sale, Delivery and Payment apply to all deliveries, sales and quotations made by OTS, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
Only written quotations made by OTS are valid. Quotations are valid for 30 days and are otherwise subject to reservations for changes, if any, in underlying costs, exchange rates, taxes and duties, etc. The times of delivery stated in the quotations are best estimates. OTS reserves the right to make changes to the prices and times of delivery of particularly large or small quantities.
2.2 Drawings, Quotations, etc.
All intellectual property rights to drawings, including plans for installation of light fittings, descriptions, specifications and similar, which are prepared/provided by OTS in order to help the customer assess quotations or make use of OTS’ services or deliveries, belong to OTS. Full payment by the customer only confers a non-exclusive right to use such materials. Drawings, etc. may not be passed on or used without OTS’ prior written consent.
Quotations and drawings, in particular, may not be passed on to competitors of OTS or to other parties who may use the drawings, etc. in breach of OTS’ legal rights and interests. Until the customer has acquired the necessary rights of use, see above, the customer is obliged, upon request, to return all drawings and other materials received, including copies, if any. The customer is also obliged to confirm in writing that such materials have been returned and that the customer is not in possession of copies of the materials and has not passed any copies on to third parties. The customer is aware that the content of the drawings and other materials represents OTS’ know-how and business secrets and that unauthorised disclosure or use thereof may cause OTS to incur substantial losses, which the customer may be called upon to refund OTS.
Unless otherwise agreed, delivery will take place as soon as possible. In cases where delivery has been confirmed for a specific week, shipping on the last day of the week shall, for all intents and purposes, be deemed to be timely delivery.
OTS may demand a postponement of the date of delivery if:
- The customer wishes to make changes to the order/product.
- Deliveries or services performed by the customer or by a third party on the customer’s behalf are delayed.
- The delivery has to be stopped or is delayed as a result of an obstacle beyond OTS’ control; which OTS could not have been expected to take into account, avoid or overcome, or which affects the subcontractor(s) used by OTS for performing the agreement.
- A consignment is picked out for customs control or similar.
