The submission of orders for the purchase of FIAC S.p.A. products implies acceptance, without reservations, of the following terms of supply which are an integral part of the sales contract. Any variations must be approved by FIAC S.p.A. by an order confirmation, which will be sent only on request?of the customer, and which will only apply to that specific order.
2 - ORDERS
Orders are always received by FIAC S.p.A. with the clause “subject to acceptance by the company”. Submission of an order implies acceptance by the customer of the stated terms of supply. Orders from customers are firm and binding and cannot be reduced or cancelled, unless the delivery time exceeds by three (3) months that communicated in writing by FIAC S.p.A.
If on submission of the order the product code is not consistent with the product description, then reference will be made to the product code. Orders placed via our agents, representatives or salespersons are always subject to acceptance by FIAC S.p.A. Accordingly, they are only binding?if confirmed by the sending of an Order Confirmation (on request?of the customer).

3 - TERMS OF DELIVERY
Completion of an order is subject to the availability of stock and production schedules and, accordingly, there is no guarantee of fulfilment in one shipment.
FIAC S.p.A. therefore reserves the right to fulfil orders by making a number of shipments. Partial or total failure to fulfil an order does not give the customer of FIAC S.p.A. any right of redress or to claim damages, or to cancel or reduce the order, unless in the circumstances described earlier, or to delay payments. Any delivery times communicated are understood to be approximate. In addition, FIAC S.p.A. does not accept liability for delays caused by force majeur. FIAC S.p.A. may refuse cancellations of orders for models not carried in stock that have been ordered specifically by the customer.
4 - SHIPMENTS
Goods are delivered on an ex works basis and, accordingly, travel at the customerâs own risk. In the case of delays, damage, theft, tampering or loss during transportation, the recipient must refer solely to the carriers since FIAC S.p.A. does not accept any responsibility for this towards the customer or the recipient. Before accepting a delivery of goods, we suggest that the weight, the number of packages and their condition be checked. In the case of dispute, the reservations should be noted on the shipping document and countersigned by the driver, adding the date and time.
5 - PACKING
FIAC S.p.A. delivers the goods with adequate packing or packaging that is supplied free of charge.

Any expenses for packaging in crates or cages or similar, will be debited at cost.
6 - PRICES
The price list in force (excluding VAT) at the time of the order, which cancels and replaces all previous price lists, applies to the order together with any discount terms specified in a separate letter.
FIAC S.p.A. reserves the right to amend the Price List at any time and without prior notice. Payments must be addressed to FIAC S.p.A., on the basis indicated on the invoice. Payments must be made punctually on the due dates established, even with regard to products that are found to be defective, claims for which are governed by point 8.
7 - PAYMENTS
If a customer fails to make a payment at the expiry date then FIAC S.p.A. reserves the automatic right to change the payment terms?to in?advance. If a customer fails to make a payment, then FIAC S.p.A. will suspend supplies until payment has been received.

FIAC S.p.A. reserves the right to amend the terms of payment at any time.
8 - RETURN OF GOODS
