Attention is drawn to the terms and conditions set out below, in particular to clause 10 (limitation of Silver Cross's liability). They are binding upon all purchasers and govern all orders and contracts for the sale or supply of all products by Silver Cross.
In these terms and conditions ("Conditions") the following words and expressions shall have the following meanings:
"the Price" means the price of the Products, agreed between Silver Cross and the Purchaser at the date of order.
"the Products" means the products sold or supplied by Silver Cross to the Purchaser including any labelling and packaging.
"the Purchaser" means the entity named in the order which buys or has agreed to buy the Products from Silver Cross.
"Silver Cross" means Silver Cross (Ireland) Limited, whose principal place of business is Ireland
1 ORDER AND ACCEPTANCE
1.1 These Conditions shall apply to and form part of all orders and other contracts for the sale or supply of the Products by Silver Cross to the Purchaser and any terms and conditions in the Purchaser's order or enquiries inconsistent with these Conditions shall be of no effect. All orders for the Products shall be deemed to be an offer by the Purchaser to purchase the Products in accordance with these Conditions.
1.2 The acceptance of orders for the Products shall be at the entire discretion of Silver Cross. Acceptance of the Purchaser's order shall become binding on Silver Cross only when Silver Cross has confirmed in writing that it has accepted the order.
2.1 Silver Cross will supply the Products to the Purchaser at the Price.
3.1 For the Ireland and the Northern Ireland domestic market, Silver Cross generally publishes suggested or recommended retail prices for its products (SRP’s or RRP’s). The Purchaser is, however, entirely free to resell the Products at whatever price it considers appropriate.
3.2 The Purchaser shall comply with Silver Cross’s retail strategy as advised from time to time. This includes selling from agreed retail sites only and not from secondary sites without prior authorisation in writing.
4.1 The time of payment shall be of the essence of any order or other contract to which these Conditions apply. Payment will be in advance of delivery except where credit terms have been agreed with the Purchaser in writing.
4.2 Unless otherwise stated in writing, the Price is exclusive of delivery charges, insurance charges, VAT and other applicable taxes, duties or levies all of which are payable by the Purchaser in addition to the Price.
4.3 In no event shall the Purchaser be entitled to make any deduction from any payment for an order due to Silver Cross in respect of any set-off or counterclaim, unless both the validity and the amount thereof have been admitted in writing by a Director of Silver Cross.
4.4 Payment shall be made by the Purchaser in EUR as instructed by Silver Cross by bank transfer (which for the avoidance of doubt shall include direct debit) or cheque to such bank account as Silver Cross may from time to time notify in writing to the Purchaser.
4.6 Payment shall be construed as being received at the time that Silver Cross's bankers receive the cleared funds from the Purchaser's bankers.
4.7 Silver Cross shall be entitled to allocate payments received from the Purchaser against any invoice issued to the Purchaser that is due for payment.
5 PASSING OF PROPERTY AND RISK
5.1 The Products shall be at the Purchaser's risk from delivery.
5.2 Whether or not risk in the Products has passed, property in the Products shall not pass from Silver Cross until Silver Cross has received payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) of
(a) all sums due to it in respect of the Products (including but not limited to the Price); and
(b) all other sums which are or which become due to Silver Cross from the Purchaser
and, until such payment, the Purchaser shall hold the Products to the order of Silver Cross. Silver Cross may bring an action for the Price notwithstanding that property in the Products has not passed to the Purchaser.
5.3 Until such time as property in the Products has passed to the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall ensure that the Products are securely stored at no cost to Silver Cross separately from all other goods in the Purchaser's possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as Silver Cross's property and easily removable by Silver Cross. The Purchaser shall ensure that the Products are properly maintained in the condition in which they were delivered and shall make good any damage or deterioration.
5.4 The Purchaser may resell the Products in the ordinary course of its business before property in the Products has passed to it provided that any sale is a sale of Silver Cross's property on the Purchaser's own behalf and is made by the Purchaser acting as principal. The Purchaser shall be deemed to have sold all products of the kind sold by Silver Cross to the Purchaser in the order in which they were invoiced to the Purchaser.
5.5 Until such time as property in the Products passes from Silver Cross:
5.5.1 the Purchaser shall not part with possession of the Products save as a result of a resale pursuant to clause 5.4; and
5.5.2 the Purchaser shall upon request deliver up to Silver Cross such of the Products as have not been resold. If the Purchaser fails to do so Silver Cross may, during business hours, without notice enter upon any premises owned, occupied or controlled by the Purchaser where the Products are situated or where Silver Cross reasonably believes the Products are situated and repossess the Products and the Purchaser grants Silver Cross an irrevocable licence for this purpose.
5.6 The Purchaser shall not pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Products which are the property of Silver Cross. Without prejudice to the other rights of Silver Cross, if the Purchaser does so all sums owing by the Purchaser to Silver Cross in relation to the Products shall forthwith become due and payable.
5.7 The Purchaser shall insure and keep insured, until property in the Products passes to the Purchaser, the Products to the full Price against "all risks" to the reasonable satisfaction of Silver Cross from the time of delivery of the Products, and shall whenever requested by Silver Cross produce a copy of the policy of insurance.
5.8 The Purchaser shall leave in position and not cover, deface or erase any notices or other marks (including serial numbers and notices that a patent, trade mark, design or copyright relating to the products is owned by Silver Cross or a third party) which Silver Cross may place on or affix to the Products.
6.1 Delivery shall take place on the first to occur of the following as agreed between the parties:
6.1.1 delivery of the Products to the Purchaser at Silver Cross's premises;
6.1.2 delivery of the Products to the Purchaser's premises by Silver Cross;
6.1.3 delivery of the Products to the agreed point of loading.
6.2 Any delivery dates requested by the Purchaser or estimated by Silver Cross are approximate only and time of delivery shall not be of the essence, nor may the Purchaser make it so without Silver Cross’s prior written agreement. Silver Cross will use its reasonable endeavours to deliver in accordance with the delivery schedule agreed between the parties.
6.3 If the Purchaser refuses to agree a reasonable delivery date, does not respect an agreed delivery date or does not tender payment or provide Silver Cross with such documentation as it shall reasonably require in order to effect delivery, Silver Cross:-
6.3.1 may either effect delivery at the Purchaser's expense by whatever means it thinks most appropriate or arrange storage at the Purchaser's risk and expense pending delivery; and
6.3.2 may, upon giving the Purchaser 24 hours prior notice and the option to accept delivery within that timescale, re-sell or otherwise dispose of the Products or part of them without prejudice to any other rights Silver Cross may have against the Purchaser for breach of contract or otherwise.
6.4 Silver Cross shall be entitled to deliver the Products by instalments and in such case each instalment shall constitute a separate contract and any failure or defect in delivery of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Purchaser to repudiate the contract as a whole nor to cancel any subsequent instalment.
6.5 The Purchaser must inspect the Products upon delivery and inform Silver Cross in writing within 48 hours of any products which are delivered in a damaged or defective state or of any shortfall in the quantity of any delivery. Any shortfall in the quantity of Products delivered from that stated in any contract to which these Conditions apply shall not give rise to a claim for damages for breach of contract solely as a result of such shortfall, but the Purchaser shall only be obliged to pay at the contract rate for the quantity of Products delivered.
6.6 Non-delivery must be reported by the Purchaser by telephone within 48 hours of the agreed date of delivery and confirmed in writing within 5 days of the agreed date of delivery.
7 RETURN OF PRODUCTS
7.1 The Purchaser shall have no right to require Silver Cross to take back and to give credit for non-defective Products delivered to the Purchaser in accordance with clause 6.1.
7.3 Should the Purchaser prove to the satisfaction of Silver Cross that Products supplied are not in accordance with the specifications of the order or are defective by way of faulty material or workmanship, Silver Cross may at its discretion request the return of the Products in question for repair or replacement or issuance of a credit note to the value of the Products concerned.
7.4 Silver Cross cannot be held responsible for lost returns (save where lost by Silver Cross).
