These are the contract terms and conditions (“Terms”) under which Genetic Engineering Group Tech (“GEG Tech”) sells products and services to a Service purchaser (hereby referred to as “Client”). These Terms and any schedule(s), attachment(s) and exhibit(s) agreed and executed by GEG Tech and Service purchaser create the contract (“Contract”). Contract shall govern the provision of all goods and/or services (“Services”) by GEG Tech to Client. GEG Tech and Client are hereby collectively referred to as “Parties”. If any conditions within Contract documents conflict with each other, we will give them the following priority: the quotation, Supplementary Terms, and finally these Terms.
Unless acknowledged and signed by GEG Tech in writing, any additions or alterations by Client shall not bind GEG Tech. GEG Tech’s failure to object to any amendments, alterations, additions or proposals contained in any work order or other form or document from Client shall not be construed as a waiver of the Contract nor an acceptance of any such amendments, alterations, additions or proposals.
These Terms do not constitute or contain any assignment or license of any intellectual property rights, do not govern the licensing of works (including software and literary works) comprised or stored in products, and do not govern the provision of any services by us or any third party in relation to the products.
Client must use purchased products in accordance with GEG Tech’s instructions. Client is solely responsible for making sure that the way the products are used complies with applicable laws, regulations and governmental policies. Client must obtain all necessary approvals and permissions needed. It is solely Client’s responsibility to make sure the products are suitable for Client’s particular use.
Products and Services provided by GEG Tech are “FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY AND ARE NOT INTENDED FOR DIAGNOSTIC, OR THERAPEUTIC USE” and are not to be used for any other purposes including, but not limited to, unauthorized commercial purposes.
The advertising of products on the GEG Tech website constitutes an “invitation to treat”; and Client’s order for products constitutes a contractual offer. No contract will come into force between Parties unless and until acceptation of the order by GEG Tech in accordance with the procedure detailed below. In order to enter into a contract to purchase products from GEG Tech, Client will need to take the following steps: (i) send the purchase order by e-mail at [email protected] or any other electronic address provided by an agent of GEG Tech; (ii) Client may pay for his order with an acceptable bank or credit card or contact our sales office to request a pro-forma invoice that will be paid by bank transfer; (iii) once GEG Tech has checked whether GEG Tech is able to meet Client’s order, an order confirmation (at which point Client’s order will become a binding contract) will be sent. Otherwise Client will be notified that his order cannot be fulfilled.
GEG Tech will arrange for the products to be delivered to the address for delivery indicated in the order. GEG Tech will use reasonable endeavors to deliver products in a timely manner. However, GEG Tech cannot guarantee delivery by any specific date.
GEG Tech’s preferred shipping carrier is DHL Express; however, GEG Tech reserves the right to ship using alternate carriers.
The Client shall pay GEG Tech for the Products and Services before GEG Tech provides the Client with the Products or Services, or, if applicable, according to the payment schedule as set forth in quotation. If Client defaults in any payment when due, GEG Tech, at its option and without prejudice to its other lawful remedies, may delay performance, defer delivery, charge higher interest rate to the maximum amount allowed by law on undisputed amounts owed, and/or terminate the Contract. All payments due hereunder shall be made in the currency specified by GEG Tech in writing in the Invoice. GEG Tech reserves the right to require alternative payment terms, including, without limitation, letter of credit or payment in advance.
