2. Scope of application

2.1. The General Conditions and the Purchase Order issued by the Company constitute an integral and essential part of the Agreement. The General Conditions will always apply, except in the case in which a specific contract has been signed between the Parties which governs the terms and conditions of supply of specific Goods and/or Services to the Company differently; in this case, the provisions of the specific contract will apply, limited to the matters governed by it. The General Conditions will prevail over any general or particular conditions of sale of the Supplier.

2.2. If the Purchase Orders have as their object only the purchase of Goods, the provisions of these General Conditions relating to the Services will not apply and, vice versa, if the Purchase Orders have as their object only the performance of Services, the provisions relating specifically only to the purchase of Goods will not apply.

3. Issuing of Purchase Orders

3.1. Purchase Orders must be issued in writing and must contain the indication of at least the following elements:

  • order number, Supplier’s code;
  • Goods and/or Services that are the object of the relative Purchase Order;
  • quantity, characteristics, and terms of delivery, and transport of the Goods and/or Services;
  • prices, billing conditions, payment methods and terms;

Therefore, the General Conditions are part of the Purchase Order to all intents and purposes; any special purchase conditions agreed upon between the Parties notwithstanding these General Conditions must be explicit and expressly indicated in the Purchase Order itself.

3.2. The Purchase Orders will become binding for the Parties once they have been accepted by the Supplier via written communication within the acceptance term indicated by the Company in the Purchase Order or, failing that, within 5 calendar days from receipt of the Purchase Order.

The Purchase Orders will be considered accepted and will become binding for the parties even if the Supplier does not send the Company an express written communication of refusal within the acceptance term indicated by the Company in the Purchase Order or, failing that, within 5 calendar days from when it was sent. The Company reserves the right to cancel the Purchase Orders until the Supplier accepts them in writing, and to refuse acceptance of Purchase Orders received after the acceptance deadline indicated above. It is understood that if the Supplier accepts the Company's Purchase Order expressly either via the delivery of the Goods and/or via the start of the supply of the Services, the Agreement is understood to be finalized between the Parties.

3.3. If a Purchase Order is issued following the submission of a contractual proposal by the Supplier, it will immediately become binding for the Parties the moment the Purchase Order is sent to the Supplier without the need for further approval from the latter, provided that this Purchase Order expressly refers to this proposal.

3.4. For the purposes of these General Conditions, communications exchanged between the Parties by letter, email, or any other form of written commercial correspondence will be considered to have been made in writing.

3.5. The sale of the Goods or the supply of the Services will be governed by the provisions contained in the General Conditions, in the Technical Specifications, in the Purchase Orders, and in any documents referred to in the Purchase Orders, including the contractual proposals. In case of conflict or discrepancy among the contractual proposals and the Purchase Orders or the General Conditions, the content of the General Conditions and the Purchase Orders will prevail.

3.6. The General Conditions do not imply any commitment on the part of the Company to issue a minimum or predetermined number of Purchase Orders. The Supplier will supply the Goods and/or provide the Services acting as an independent operator and not as a commercial collaborator of the Company; nothing in the Agreement is intended to create a partnership, joint venture or employment relationship between the Parties. The Supplier will execute the Agreement in total managerial and organizational autonomy. Under no circumstances will the General Conditions or the Purchase Orders give rise to relationships of joint venture or company, nor will they attribute to the Supplier any power of representation in the name of the Company.

3.7. The Company will have the right to withdraw from the Agreement at any time, also notwithstanding art. 1373, subsection 1, of the Italian Civil Code, if, at its sole discretion, it deems that:

  1. the technical suitability of the Supplier to regularly supply the Goods or Services has ceased to exist;
  2. the Supplier is in a state of economic difficulty such as to endanger the regular execution of the supply of Goods or Services and in particular when:
    1. legal actions have been initiated against the Supplier for the recovery of credits or executive procedures;
    2. the Supplier is in a state of insolvency or has been admitted to any insolvency procedure, liquidation, or agreement with creditors or is declared bankrupt or subject to insolvency procedure;
    3. the Supplier ceases or threatens to cease the ordinary course of its business;
    4. the Supplier fails to provide, upon request by the Company, adequate guarantees regarding the execution of the Agreement.

3.8. The Supplier is expressly prohibited from entrusting the supply of the Goods and/or Services covered by the Agreement to third parties in whole or in part, without prejudice to the prior written authorization of the Company pursuant to art. 1656 of the Civil Code. The Supplier, in any case of recourse to subcontractors, will remain jointly and severally responsible with the latter towards the Company for the correct execution of the activities entrusted to them and for the observance, by the aforementioned subcontractors, of the obligations set out in the Agreement on the part of the Supplier. It is also understood that the use of subcontractors cannot, under any circumstances, lead to any increase in the payment referred to in the Agreement or any economic burden or cost of any kind for the Company. In particular, the Supplier must ensure that the subcontractors comply with the provisions of the Agreement, referring to its contents within the contractual agreements that will exist with them, with particular reference to those relating to:

  1. the Technical Specifications,
  2. the security, confidentiality, and continuity of the supply of the Goods and/or Services
  3. insurance coverage,
  4. the provisions relating to the personnel employed.

It is expressly understood that the Supplier will indemnify and keep the Company unharmed from any sort of burden, expense, loss, damage or detrimental consequence that it may suffer in relation to the violation by the subcontractors of any obligation set out in the Agreement.

4. Methods of delivery and execution

4.1. For the purposes of ascertaining compliance with the delivery terms and the transfer of risk for damage or total or partial loss of the Goods from the Supplier to the Company, deliveries must be made in compliance with the conditions set forth in the "Incoterms" regulations in force specified in the Purchase Orders. The transportation of the Goods must be carried out with every precaution to protect them from any damage.

4.2. The Supplier must punctually and thoroughly comply with the terms and conditions of delivery of the Goods and provision of the Services indicated in the Purchase Orders (to be considered essential in the interest of the Company). The Company reserves the right to refuse any Goods or Services received before the term agreed upon and to charge the Supplier for any storage costs and financial charges incurred relating to the anticipated delivery period.

4.3. The Supplier must make sure that the quantity of Goods delivered corresponds to that indicated in the Purchase Orders. The Company may request that the Supplier collect the quantities exceeding those ordered, with the right to send them back directly at the Supplier's expense and risk and to charge the latter the financial charges resulting from any payment already made and the storage costs if the Supplier fails to do so promptly.

4.4. In the event of a delay in the delivery of the Goods or in the execution of the Services or in the event of incomplete delivery or execution, the Company shall have the right to:

  1. set a further deadline for the Supplier to deliver the Goods or carry out the Services, or
  2. notify the Supplier of the termination of the relevant Contract for non-fulfillment and request the return of any amount already paid by the Company.

4.5. Any setting of a further deadline to deliver the Goods or carry out the Services pursuant to Art. 4.4 (i) does not preclude the Company from the right to make use of the additional remedies referred to in Articles 4.4 (ii).

4.6. In addition to the remedies referred to in Art. 4.4, in any case of delayed, failed, incomplete or non-compliant delivery of the Goods or execution of the Services, the Company may exercise the following rights:

  1. suspend payments due the Supplier concerning the delivery of the Goods or Services indicated in the Purchase Order or in the Agreement without prejudice to greater damages;
  2. request compensation for any further damage caused directly or indirectly by the delayed, failed, incomplete or non-compliant delivery of the Goods or performance of the Services, including, by way of example but not limited to, damages from lack of production, loss of profit and any additional costs incurred by the Company in purchasing the Goods or Services from other suppliers as a result of the Supplier's default.

4.7. The remedies foreseen in this article 4 are additional and not in substitution of other remedies foreseen by the applicable law in favor of the Company.

4.8. The verification of the functioning, testing, or payment of the Goods by the Company do not imply, in themselves, acceptance of them and will not release the Supplier from the obligations, declarations, or guarantees assumed.

4.9. The Company reserves the right, at any time, to carry out checks on the Goods and/or on their production process. If the inspection or control is carried out on the Supplier's premises, the Supplier shall provide the necessary equipment and provide assistance to ensure the safety and comfort of the Company's inspection personnel, to a reasonable extent and as agreed upon in good faith between the Parties.

4.10. The Supplier accepts and promises:

  1. to comply with all national and international regulations regarding the control of the exports; and b) not to export or re-export, directly or indirectly, any information, goods, software and/or technology to countries for which the European Union, the United States of America or other countries, at the time of export or re-export, require an export license or other government approval without first obtaining that license or approval.

4.11. The Supplier undertakes to indemnify and keep the Company undamaged by any claim, liability, penalty, fine, cost, or expense (including legal fees) incurred by the Company in relation to the Supplier's non-compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The Supplier undertakes to promptly notify the Company of the receipt of any notifications of violations of laws, regulations, and/or export regulations that may have an effect on the Company.

4.12. At least once a year, and in any case at each request by the Company, the Supplier must provide the Company with the declaration of origin of the Goods, capable of satisfying the requirements established (a) by the customs authorities of the receiving country, and (b) by any rules and/or regulations applicable to exports. In particular, the declaration must indicate (i) in which country the Goods, or part of them, were produced or originated and (ii) the relative classification code.

4.13. For all Goods for which regional or free trade agreements, preferential order regulations, or other similar regulatory instruments are applicable, the Supplier will be responsible for delivering the Goods with documents suitable to certifying the preferential origin (by way of example, declarations of the Supplier, certificates of preferential origin, invoices, other required documents).

4.14. The Supplier will indicate the country of origin on all Goods (or on the packaging if there is not enough space on the Goods, according to the methods identified in good faith between the Parties). In affixing these indications on the Goods, the Supplier must comply with the requirements of the customs authorities of the receiving Country. If the Goods are imported, the Supplier will make sure that the Company, where possible, is the importer. If the Company is not the registered importer and the Supplier obtains the refund of the customs duties, the latter, upon request of the Company, will provide the latter with the documents required by the customs authorities of the receiving country, to prove the import and transfer the right to the return of customs duties to the Company.

5. Prices and Payments

5.1. The prices of the Goods and/or Services will be indicated in the Purchase Orders or established in separate written agreements between the Parties. The prices indicated in the Purchase Orders will be set and not subject to revisions or adjustments. Likewise, once agreed upon for a certain period, the prices will be fixed and not subject to revisions or adjustments for the agreed period of time.

5.2. The established price is all-inclusive and net of VAT or other applicable tax charges. Additional costs and expenses will therefore be acknowledged to the Supplier only if previously authorized by the Company in writing and following the presentation of documentary evidence. It is understood that the reimbursement for any licenses is included in the purchase price of the Goods and/or Services as specified in point 7.1 of these General Conditions.

5.3. Unless otherwise agreed upon, the prices include the packaging necessary to guarantee the integrity of the Goods. Unless otherwise stipulated in the Purchase Orders, the ownership of the Goods will pass to the Company at the same time as the transfer of risks, as defined in the applicable Incoterm.

5.4. Terms and methods of payment will be indicated in the Purchase Orders or established in separate written agreements between the Parties. Payment will in any case be conditional on delivery to the Company of the Goods and/or the original copy of the bill of lading (where applicable).

The circumstance that the Company has requested the elimination of the non-compliance pursuant to art. 6.2(a) does not preclude its exercising the rights foreseen by articles 6.2(b) and 6.2(c) if the Supplier fails to eliminate the defects or replace the defective Goods within the term set by the Company.
