These terms and conditions of sale are current as of April 2023. However, Techtronics reserves the right to change its terms and conditions of sale from time to time, at its sole discretion. The most updated version of the same will in any case be published on the website www.techtronics.it. The customer is therefore required to check, when sending the purchase offer/order, the text of the general conditions of sale in force, which will be applicable to the contract with Techtronics in the event of acceptance of the purchase offer/order.
All descriptions and illustrations contained in the Techtronics Catalog or website (the “Catalogue”), or in other Techtronics marketing literature are intended only to give the customer a general idea of the products or items and shall not form part of the agreement between Techtronics and the customer.
The prices shown in the Catalog or on the www.techtronics.it web portal do not include VAT, which will be applied at the rate in force on the invoice date. The prices indicated in the catalog and on the website may vary. In the event that the price of the product or item ordered shown in the Techtronics Ltd price list in force at the time of receipt of the order is different from that indicated by the customer in the order form, Techtronics will promptly contact the customer, who will the right to confirm or not the purchase order. Where prices are not expressly indicated or in the case of supplies relating to items not present in the Catalogue, prices must be specifically agreed and confirmed in writing by Techtronics before shipment of the product. Techtronics does not, under any circumstances, issue a pro forma invoice.
- PURCHASE ORDERS
Purchase orders may be sent by the customer (i) according to the methods indicated in the introductory pages of the Catalogue, or (ii) via the Internet. Further information, (in relation, among other things, to the technical steps to be followed for the conclusion of the contract, the way in which the concluded contract will be filed, the relative access methods and the correction of data entry errors before forwarding the order, etc) in the event of a purchase via the web portal, are indicated at the Internet address under the “Services” label. The order will be considered as a contractual proposal, since the Catalog and the display of the products or articles on the virtual showcase of the site have only an informative function and, therefore, an invitation to offer. Unless otherwise indicated with regard to orders placed online, acceptance by Techtronics may also take place through direct execution of the orders, without the need for prior formal acceptance of the order. Long-term orders may have a maximum duration of 12 months from the date of issue of the order.
The shipping and handling costs of the product are charged to the customer and are shown in the following conditions of sale, under the chapter “Shipping costs”, unless a different delivery service is specifically requested by the customer and agreed with Techtronics.
Same-day shipping, regardless of the transport system used and whenever possible, will normally be carried out only for orders received on working days between 8.00 and 19.00. Techtronics is usually able to deliver in Italy with an average delivery time of 24/48 hours. The “Program Order” service is also available, with delayed delivery, to be specified in the notes field when ordering. However, it is understood that the delivery terms must be understood as non-essential. Techtronics reserves the right to change the shipping cost during the validity period of the Catalog. Since the shipping costs shown in the Catalog may not be updated, customers are required to check the relative amounts on the website under the “Shipping costs” label. For orders not sent online, if the transport cost is higher than indicated in the Catalogue, the relative amount will be communicated by Techtronics to the customer before shipping, which will take place only after the customer has accepted the new amount within 3 (three) days of notice from Techtronics. If Techtronics expects to be unable to meet the delivery terms indicated, without this implying any liability towards the customer, it will communicate the new delivery conditions of the item to the same, who will have to confirm the order, as amended, within 3 (three) days of the communication from Techtronics. Unless otherwise agreed, delivery will be made to the address specified by the customer in the order.
- REVIEW OF PRODUCTS, DELAYS AND NON-DELIVERY
The customer is required to examine the goods received accurately at the time of delivery and to notify Techtronics in detail, within 8 (eight) days of delivery, of any defects found – or that may be found – as a result of this examination, or to propose any other complaint in relation to the products. In the event that the customer does not make the above communication, the items will be considered definitively accepted and compliant with what is requested in the order, without prejudice to the possibility, available within and no later than 1 (one) year from delivery, to assert any non-apparent defects, provided that the relative report has been made within 8 (eight) days of their discovery (in compliance with the provisions of article 1495 of the civil code). It is understood that the customer must refuse the delivery, by the carrier, of packages with damaged packaging and must, in this regard, immediately inform Techtronics of the incident; otherwise, the delivered goods will be considered accepted in full in the state in which they are at that moment. For purposes of review of the products or articles, the customer acknowledges that Techtronics does not author or view the software that may be contained therein. The customer must therefore carry out, under his sole responsibility, before using the product or article, all reasonable checks to verify that the software contained in the products purchased make them suitable for use or are not affected by computer viruses or from other defects that may damage the item or the goods that come into contact with it.
- PASSAGE OF RISK AND OWNERSHIP
Ownership of the goods passes to the customer when the goods are handed over to the carrier for delivery to the customer’s home or to the address indicated by the customer when placing the order. In any case, the goods travel at the risk and peril of the customer, it being agreed that each shipment is carried out by specific assignment and on behalf of the customer and that, therefore, Techtronics is exempt from any liability with the delivery of the same to the carrier or to the customer in the event in which the latter decides to collect the goods personally or through a person in charge. In the event of non-payment, Techtronics will have the right to avail itself, at its sole discretion, of the express termination clause referred to in the following section “Payments and Express Termination Clause” or of any other remedy provided for by law, including compulsory execution or the repossession. If necessary to allow Techtronics to exercise and protect its rights, the customer will allow Techtronics, its employees and agents, access to its premises, for the sole purpose of proceeding with the collection of unpaid products. However, it is understood that Techtronics will in any case have the right to request full compensation for any damages suffered as a result of the customer’s default.
Techtronics will replace or repair the products or items supplied, or refund the relative price, if, despite correct and diligent use by the customer, defects are found, which must be asserted against Techtronics no later than 12 (twelve) months from the date of delivery, or within that different term from time to time indicated by Techtronics for specific items, or established by law. The items, or the components or parts thereof to which the dispute refers, must be returned to Techtronics within the time period referred to in the preceding paragraph, suitably packaged, shipped by the customer and in compliance with the particular instructions that Techtronics has possibly given at the time of supply or subsequently. The returned items, or components or parts thereof must be accompanied by a note describing the defect, as well as any other information indicated or requested by Techtronics at the time of supply or subsequently. All products or items or parts thereof replaced by Techtronics shall become the sole property of Techtronics. This guarantee replaces any guarantee or other provision established by law regarding the quality or suitability of the products for specific uses, except for those provisions which cannot be waived by law.

However, Techtronics reserves the right to discontinue offering any product, or to make changes in product or item specifications, at any time, without notice and without providing justification for such decision. Techtronics recommends that customers check the dimensions and other data relating to the products published in the Catalog or on the virtual showcase of the site, as well as their future availability, before using them for particularly important uses.
