General Terms & Conditions of Sale
- GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Conditions”) govern the offering, sale, and delivery of all goods and/or services (hereinafter jointly referred to as the “Product” or “Products”) from or on behalf of Nuritas Limited or an Affiliate of Nuritas Limited (together “Nuritas”) offering and/or selling the Products to customer (“Customer”) and apply to all transactions between Nuritas and Customer. “Affiliate” means any subsidiary or holding company (as defined in sections 7 and 8 of the Companies Act 2014) of a Party or any subsidiaries and holding companies of such holding company, from time to time, and in each case their respective successors in title and assigns.
1.2 By contracting based on these Conditions, Customer agrees to the applicability thereof in respect of all dealings with Nuritas, even if this is not explicitly stated.
1.3 Nuritas explicitly rejects the applicability of any general terms and conditions of Customer. All pre-printed or standard terms of any Customer’s purchase order or other business processing document have no effect, and these Conditions will prevail over such forms, and any additional, inconsistent, conflicting, or different terms in such forms will be void and of no force and effect. Furthermore, these Conditions supersede any and all terms of prior oral and written quotations, communications, agreements, and understandings of the parties in respect of the sale and delivery of the Products and will apply in preference to and supersede any and all terms and conditions of any order placed by Customer and any other terms and conditions submitted by Customer. Failure by Nuritas to object to the terms and conditions set by Customer will in no event be construed as an acceptance of any of the terms and conditions of Customer. Neither Nuritas’ commencement of performance nor Nuritas delivery will be deemed as acceptance of any of Customer’s terms and conditions. If the Conditions differ from any of the terms and conditions of Customer, these Conditions and any subsequent communication or conduct by or on behalf of Nuritas, including, without limitation, confirmation of an order and delivery of Products, constitute a counter-offer and not acceptance of such terms and conditions submitted by Customer. Any communication or conduct of Customer which confirms an agreement for the delivery of Products by Nuritas, as well as acceptance by Customer of any delivery of Products from Nuritas will constitute an acceptance by Customer of these Conditions.
1.4 Nuritas reserves the right to amend these Conditions at any time. Any waiver or modification these Conditions is only effective if it is in writing and signed by both parties or posted by Nuritas at nuritas.com/terms. Nuritas is not obligated under any other agreements unless they are in writing and signed by Nuritas’ authorized representative.
- QUOTATIONS, ORDERS AND CONFIRMATION
2.1 Unless stated otherwise, quotations made by Nuritas in whatever form are not binding to Nuritas and merely constitute an invitation to Customer to place an order. All quotations issued by Nuritas are revocable and subject to change without notice. Orders are not binding until accepted by Nuritas in writing by issuing Customer with an acknowledgement of their order (“Order Acknowledgement”). Nuritas will be entitled to refuse an order without indicating the reasons.
2.2 Each delivery will stand as a separate transaction and any failure to deliver will have no consequences for other deliveries.
2.3 Any samples supplied to Customer will be governed by the terms of the Nuritas Material Transfer Agreement (“MTA”) and are solely for information purposes, and in no way imply any express or implied conditions or warranties of any kind, including as to quality, description, merchantability, suitability, or fitness for any purpose. Customer will be deemed to have satisfied itself as to such matters prior to ordering the Products.
3.1 Prices and currencies of Nuritas’ Products are as set out in the Order Acknowledgement. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Nuritas’ prices include standard packaging but do not include Value Added Tax or any other similar applicable taxes, duties, levies, or charges in any jurisdiction levied in relation to the Products or the delivery thereof (“Taxes”). The amount of any Taxes levied in connection with the sale of Products to Customer will be for Customer’s account and will either be added to each invoice or separately invoiced by Nuritas to Customer. If Nuritas grants a discount, this discount only relates to the delivery specifically mentioned in the Order Acknowledgement.
- PAYMENT AND CUSTOMER’S CREDIT
4.1 Unless stated otherwise in the Order Acknowledgement, payment will be made based on net cash, to be received by Nuritas within 30 (thirty) days following the date of Nuritas’ invoice. All payments will be made without any deduction on account of any Taxes and free of set-off or other counterclaims.
4.2 With regard to payment for the Products, time is of the essence. Nuritas may, without prejudice to any other rights of Nuritas, charge interest on any overdue payment at 12% (twelve percent) per annum from the due date computed on a daily basis until all outstanding amounts are paid in full. All costs and expenses incurred by Nuritas with respect to the collection of overdue payments (including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees, expert fees, court costs and other expenses of litigation) will be for Customer’s account.
4.3 Every payment by Customer will first serve to pay the judicial and extra-judicial costs and the accrued interest and will afterwards be deducted from the oldest outstanding claim regardless of any advice to the contrary from Customer.
4.4 Any complaint with respect to the invoice must be notified to Nuritas in writing within 14 (fourteen) days after the date of invoice. Thereafter, Customer will be deemed to have approved the invoice.
- DELIVERY AND ACCEPTANCE
5.1 Unless stated otherwise in the Order Acknowledgement, all deliveries of Products will be DAP (Delivery At Place) to Customer’s delivery address. The term DAP have the meaning as defined in the latest version of INCOTERMS published by the International Chamber of Commerce at the time of the Order Acknowledgement.
5.2 Unless stated otherwise in the Order Acknowledgement, any times or dates for delivery by Nuritas are estimates and will not be of the essence. Nuritas is entitled to deliver the Products as stated in the Order Acknowledgement in parts and to invoice separately. In no event will Nuritas be liable for any damages and/or costs due to delay in delivery. Delay in delivery of any Products will not relieve Customer of its obligation to accept delivery thereof, unless Customer cannot reasonably be expected to accept such late delivery. Customer will be obliged to accept the Products and pay the rate specified in the Order Acknowledgement for the quantity of Products delivered by Nuritas.
6.1 Customer’s wrongful non-acceptance or rejection of Products or cancellation of the confirmed Order will entitle Nuritas to recover from Customer, in addition to any other damages caused by such action:
- in the case of Products which reasonably cannot be resold by Nuritas to a third party, the price of such Products as quoted in the Order Acknowledgement; or
- in the case of Products which can be resold by Nuritas, damages equal to 50% (fifty percent) of the price for the Products as quoted in the Order Acknowledgement as liquidated damages.
- EXAMINATION AND CONFORMITY TO SPECIFICATIONS
7.1 On delivery, Customer will examine the Products and satisfy itself that the Products delivered meet the agreed specifications for the Products as advised by Nuritas or, in the absence of agreed specifications, to the most recent specifications used by Nuritas at the time of delivery of the Products (the “Specifications”). Customer will not, and will not cause the Products to be reverse engineered, decompiled, fractionated, replicated, reprocessed or partitioned.
7.2 Complaints about the Products will be made in writing and must reach Nuritas not later than 7 (seven) days from the date of delivery in respect of any defect, default or shortage which would be apparent from a reasonable inspection on delivery, and 7 (seven) days from the date on which any other claim (e.g. hidden defects) was or ought to have been apparent but in no event later than (i) 6 (six) months from the date of delivery of the Products or (ii) the expiry of the Products’ shelf-life whichever is the earlier. Any Use of the Products will be deemed to be an unconditional acceptance of the Products as of the date of delivery and a waiver of all claims in respect of the Products.
7.3 A determination of whether or not delivered Products conform to the Specifications will be done solely by Nuritas analysing the samples or records retained by Nuritas and taken from the batches in which the Products were produced in accordance with the methods of analysis used by Nuritas.
7.4 Defects in parts of the Products do not entitle Customer to reject the entire delivery of the Products. Complaints, if any, do not affect Customer’s obligation to pay as defined in Article 4. Upon receipt of a complaint, Nuritas is entitled to suspend all further deliveries until the complaints are established to be unfounded and/or refuted or until the defect has been totally cured.
- TRANSFER OF RISK AND PROPERTY
8.1 Risk of the Products will pass to Customer in accordance with the applicable Incoterm (see Article 5.1).
8.2 Title to the Products will not pass to Customer and full legal and beneficial ownership of the Products will remain with Nuritas until Nuritas has received payment in full for the Products, including costs such as interest, charges, expenses etc.
8.3 Products for which delivery is suspended pending payment by Customer, as well as Products of which delivery is wrongfully rejected or not accepted by Customer, will be held and stored by Nuritas at the risk and expense of Customer.
8.4 In the event of termination on the basis of Article 16, Nuritas will, without prejudice to any other rights of Nuritas, be entitled to require immediate return of the Products, or to repossess the Products, for which it may invoke a retention of title.
8.5 Until payment for the Products has been completed, Customer is entitled to use the Products solely to the extent required in its ordinary course of business, and, to the extent possible, will:
- keep the Products separate and in a clearly identifiable manner.
- notify Nuritas immediately of any claims by third parties which may affect the Products; and
- adequately insure the Products.
- LIMITED WARRANTY AND REMEDIES
9.1 Nuritas warrants that on the date of delivery, the products will materially conform to the specifications. This warranty is void ab initio and Nuritas is not obligated if a claimed breach of the warranty is caused by:
- any unauthorized modification of the products or tampering with the products,
- use of the products inconsistent with the specifications or as advised by Nuritas, or
- breach of these conditions by customer, including failure to make timely payment.
If and to the extent products are in breach with such warranty, as determined in accordance with article 7, Nuritas may at its discretion, within a reasonable time, either repair or replace the products at no charge to customer or credit the amounts paid by customer to Nuritas directly attributable to any non-conforming products. Accordingly, Nuritas’ obligation will be limited solely to repair or replacement of the products or for credit of the products.
9.2 Nuritas’ obligation to repair, replace, or credit will be contingent upon receipt by Nuritas of timely notice of any alleged non-conformance of products and, if applicable, the timely return of the products, in accordance with article 7.
9.3 The foregoing warranty is exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, representations, conditions, or other terms, express, implied, statutory, contractually, or otherwise, and Nuritas expressly disclaims to the maximum extent permitted by law all other warranties express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability, non-infringement, title, suitability, or fitness for any purpose covering the products.
- LIMITED LIABILITY
10.1 Nuritas’ liability for any and all claims for damages arising out of or in connection with the products and the use thereof will under no circumstances exceed the sum of customer’s payments for the products that are the subject of the claim. Under no circumstances will Nuritas be liable to customer or any other person and Nuritas disclaims any and all liability for any kind of special, incidental, indirect, special, exemplary, consequential or punitive damage or loss, cost or expense, including without limitation, damage based upon lost goodwill, lost sales or profits, work stoppage, production failure, impairment of other goods, cost of substitute goods, merchandise, materials and facilities, down time costs, increased costs or claims of customer or of customer’s customer or otherwise, and whether arising out of or in connection with breach of warranty, breach of contract, misrepresentation, tort, negligence or otherwise.
- FORCE MAJEURE
11.1 Neither party will be liable in any way for any damage, loss, cost or expense arising out of or in connection with any delay, restriction, interference or failure in performing any obligation towards the other party caused by any circumstance beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, laws and regulations, administrative measures, orders or decrees of any court, earthquake, flood, fire, explosion, war, terrorism, riot, sabotage, accident, epidemic, pandemic, strike, lockout, slowdown, labour disturbances, difficulty in obtaining necessary labour or raw materials, lack of or failure of transportation, breakdown of plant or essential machinery, emergency repair or maintenance, breakdown or shortage of utilities, delay in delivery or defects in goods supplied by suppliers or subcontractors (“Force Majeure”).
11.2 Upon the occurrence of any event of Force Majeure, the party suffering thereby will promptly inform the other party by written notice thereof specifying the cause of the event and how it will affect its performance of its obligations under the confirmed Order. In the event of any delay, the obligation to deliver will be suspended for a period equal to the time loss by reason of Force Majeure. However, should a Force Majeure event continue or be expected to continue for a period extending to more than 90 (ninety) days after the agreed delivery date, either Party is entitled to cancel the affected part of the confirmed Order without any liability to the other Party.

12.2 Customer must solely rely on its own expertise, know- how and judgment in relation to the Products and Customer’s Use thereof as well as in Customer’s application of any information obtained from Nuritas for the purposes intended by Customer.
