Force Majeure on the part of De Tester’s suppliers is also deemed to be Force Majeure on the part of De Tester.
    4. If the Force Majeure on the part of De Tester lasts longer than three months, the Customer is authorised to terminate the part of the agreement that cannot be performed by means of a written statement.

    7. Delivery, transport, risk

    1. Delivery of Products will take place by putting them at the Customer’s disposal at the location agreed with the Customer. From that moment on, the Customer shall bear the risk of the storage, loading, transport and unloading of the item. 
    2. Even if it has been agreed that De Tester will arrange the transport, the risk of, inter alia, the storage, loading, transport and unloading of the item shall rest with the Customer.
    3. De Tester will have fulfilled its obligation to deliver once it has given the Customer the opportunity to take receipt of the Products at the agreed place and time. Providing an incorrect or incomplete address shall be at the expense and risk of Customer.

    3. A delivery is deemed to have been refused if an attempt is made to deliver the Products ordered but delivery proves impossible. The day on which acceptance of the delivery is refused is deemed to be the day of delivery.

    9. Inspection and Complaints

    1. The Customer must inspect the Products (including packaging and instructions for use) as fully as possible immediately after delivery and check that they are complete.
    2. Complaints about missing or damaged (parts of) Products, packaging, deviations in size or number or any other deviations from the agreed product specifications that can reasonably be detected during this inspection must be made within fourteen days of delivery, on penalty of forfeiture of all rights.
    3. The Customer no longer has the right to invoke a performance defect if the Customer has not complained about it in writing within twelve months of delivery and within a period of fourteen days of having discovered or should having been able to discover the defect. The complaint must be accompanied by all relevant information to enable the complaint to be properly investigated, such as the date of delivery, the address where the Products were delivered, a detailed description of and the grounds for the complaint and any relevant visual materials. The Customer also has an obligation to keep any defective parts and return them freight-free to De Tester immediately upon request.

    10. Warranty and Customer Claims

    1. With due observance of the provisions elsewhere in these terms and conditions and with the exception of products with a shorter shelf life, De Tester guarantees the soundness of the products supplied by it for a period of six months after delivery. This means that De Tester guarantees that the Products meet the technical specifications stated in the agreement or Quotation. If the agreement specifies a guarantee period of any other length, the rest of this article remains unaffected.
    2. De Tester does not in any way guarantee that the Products sold by it are suitable for the Customer’s intended use of the Products. It is up to the Customer, prior to concluding the Agreement, to investigate whether the Products to be purchased are suitable for the Customer’s intended purposes and use thereof.

    5. In the event of a warranty claim, the Customer shall retain the obligation to accept delivery of and pay for any other Products ordered. A (justified) guarantee claim does not entitle the Customer to terminate the agreement.

      • a defect results from the fact that De Tester has received incomplete or incorrect information with regard to the performance of the relevant agreement;

    6. All costs of collection of the amounts owed by the Customer, both judicial and extrajudicial, shall be for the Customer’s account. These include, among other things, the costs of seizure, bankruptcy petitions, collection costs, as well as the costs of lawyers, bailiffs and other experts De Tester has engaged. The extra-judicial collection costs to be incurred by De Tester – including those incurred in the context of penalty proceedings – amount to at least 15% of the total amount owed by the Customer to De Tester, with a minimum of EUR 750 plus VAT, without prejudice to De Tester’s right to full compensation for damages and costs incurred in collecting the amounts owed.
    7. On pain of forfeiture of all rights, the Customer must have submitted any complaints concerning invoices to De Tester in writing within fourteen days of the invoice date, failing which the invoices in question will be deemed to have been accepted and approved by the Customer, and complaints in this regard will no longer be accepted.
