GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
Version February 2022
1 Scope of Application
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (“General Terms”) shall apply to all sales of Products and Services provided by NADMED Oy or any of its affiliated companies (collectively “NADMED”) to its customers (the “Customer”). These General Terms are used as such or to complement a separate agreement between NADMED and the Customer (the “Agreement”) and are an essential part of such an Agreement. In case of any discrepancies between the Agreement and these General Terms, the Agreement shall prevail. These General Terms supersede any of the Customer’s general terms unless otherwise agreed in writing between the parties.
2 Offer, Acceptance and Confirmation
If a separate agreement has not been concluded between the parties, NADMED’s offer, the Customer’s unreserved acceptance and NADMED’s order confirmation shall be deemed to form an Agreement between the parties. Any offer made by NADMED is conditional on the Customer’s assent to all the terms and conditions of the offer. The Customer’s acceptance may be evidenced by (i) the Customer’s or its representative’s written or verbal assent (ii) the Customer’s or its representative’s acceptance of delivery of the Products or payment of purchase price, or (iii) any other conduct by the Customer or its representative corresponding to an acceptance of the offer. NADMED’s offer is valid for the period of time stipulated in the offer or, if no such period of time is stipulated, for thirty (30) days from the date of the offer. NADMED has the right to revoke the offer at any time prior to the receipt by NADMED of the customer’s acceptance thereof.
3 Online Sales
These General Terms apply as such to orders made by the Customer via NADMED’s website www.nadmed.fi. All orders are subject to availability. NADMED’s acceptance of the Customer’s order takes place when NADMED sends the Customer an order confirmation by email in which it is stated that the order has been accepted. NADMED will inform the Customer in writing if it is unable to accept the order.
4 Products and Services
For the purposes of these General Terms, the terms Products and Services shall have the following meanings: “Products” shall mean the diagnostic toolbox NADMED Kit and any other products and materials to be provided by NADMED to the Customer, including the instructions for use and related documents. “Services” shall mean the analysis services and any other services to be provided by NADMED to the Customer. In its Products and Services, NADMED utilizes its proprietary assay technology to measure individual levels of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) and glutathione metabolites from blood and other matrices of human or animal origin. All four NAD metabolites (NAD+, NADH, NADP+, and NADPH) and two glutathiones (GSH and GSSG) can be measured using standard lab equipment and the technique can be applied to both analysing individual samples and high-throughput screening.
5 Prices and Payment
Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the parties, the effective purchase prices applied by NADMED at the time of the Customer’s order shall be applicable. NADMED’s prices are subject to change without notice. The prices are stated in Euros and exclusive of taxes, levies and other charges in relation to packaging, labelling, carriage and freight all of which the Customer shall bear where applicable. For delivery and packaging, additional costs and expenses may apply. In relation to online sales, payment shall be made by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express), PayPal, bank transfer, or another payment method made available by notice on NADMED’s website. The Customer is debited once the order has been accepted by NADMED. If for any reason the payment cannot be processed, the order is cancelled.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the parties, NADMED may invoice the Customer for the price of the Products or Services upon delivery. If deliveries are made in instalments, each instalment may be invoiced separately. All invoices are due net fourteen (14) days from the date of the invoice. All overdue invoices shall bear an annual interest at the rate of ten percent (10 %) accruing from the due date until paid in full. In the event of any default in payment by the Customer, NADMED reserves the right to withhold performance of any
work and delivery of any Products or Services until the payment is received by NADMED in addition to any other rights and remedies available under the Agreement or at law.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the parties, the Products shall be delivered via a courier service accepted by NADMED, such as FedEx, DHL or UPS. Any materials to be provided by the Customer to NADMED for the provision of the Services, such as biological samples, shall be delivered to NADMED in accordance with NADMED’s instructions. The delivery of the Products and any materials related to the provision of the Services, whether domestic or international, falls under the costs of the Customer. NADMED will use reasonable efforts to meet any given delivery time or date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any delivery time or date given by NADMED is an estimate only and non-binding on NADMED.
The Products shall be at the risk of the Customer from the time of delivery to the Customer’s nominated premises, or from the time of collection from NADMED’s nominated premises by or on behalf of the Customer, whichever is applicable.
