1.General Provisions:
All orders forwarded by the Buyer shall be regulated by these
General Terms and Conditions of Sale. Sending an order implies
that the Buyer is aware of and fully accepts the clauses here
below. These terms and conditions regulate the contractual
relationship between the Seller and the buyer relating to the
order, unless the parties make a specific exception to them
through a written agreement signed by the Seller.
Product references, technical specifications and quality standards
are those indicated in the technical data sheets published on the
Seller’s website.

2. Applicability:
Notification of these General Sales Conditions may be
communicated by printing on the reverse of headed paper,
quotations, Order Confirmations and e-mails.
The application of any general conditions used by the Buyer is
hereby explicitly excluded.

3.Order and acceptance:
The Order must indicate all the product technical specifications
and details of the products requested, otherwise the ones
indicated in the order confirmation shall be valid or,
alternatively, those indicated in the Technical Data Sheets and/or
the Seller’s Product Catalog.
Any technical specifications indicated by the Buyer not
discussed before order placement or forwarded by the Buyer after
the order was signed, shall not be taken into consideration,
without prejudice to the Seller’s right to consider them as a new
order.
The order shall be considered as being fully accepted and
approved by the Seller once the Buyer receives the order
confirmation from the Seller.
If the Seller is unable to fully accept the order clauses, the Seller
is entitled to send the Buyer an order confirmation containing all
the necessary changes (e.g. quantity, type of product ordered,
etc), asking for the Buyer new acceptance.
Should the Buyer fail to provide any clarifications in writing, to
be sent via e-mail no later than 3 (three) working days after
receiving the order confirmation, to the same e-mail address from
which that confirmation was sent, the sales contract will be
considered to be effective between the parties.

4.Delivery deadlines:
Any confirmation regarding time of delivery will only be
approximate. Time of delivery is agreed upon through Supplier’s
Order Confirmation and is subject to clarifications in a timely
manner regarding any other details concerning the Order, as well
as implementing any of the Buyer’s liabilities, such as giving
official certifications, giving letters of credit and payment
covenants or to pay the previously agreed upon installments.
Thus, the previously mentioned conditions are available for
terms of delivery also.
The delivery deadline shall be understood to have been respected
once notification has been provided that the goods are ready to
be picked up or the delivery notice has been issued, depending
on the case in question.
Once the Buyer receives this notification, he is obliged to pick
up the goods as soon as possible.
If the Buyer is unable to take physical custody of the Products on
the agreed upon delivery date, the Supplier will have the right to
store the Products at the Buyer’s expense, without modifying the
terms of payment.

5.Delivery method and picking up goods:
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, goods shall only be delivered
at our production facilities or our warehouse, as indicated in the
order confirmation. Once the goods have been picked up or
handed over to the carrier, they shall be transported at the buyer’s
sole risk. Different delivery methods may involve the application
of current INCOTERMS regulations.

6.Price and payment conditions:
The sales price, payment methods and payment conditions are
those indicated in the order confirmation and invoices, issued in
accordance with the agreed upon conditions.
Prices are always stated as net amounts, excluding taxes and any
other charge, for unpacked Products EXWorks (Incoterms 2010)
for the Supplier’s premises.
Prices are subject to adjustment by the Supplier so as to take into
account unforeseeable variations. The Buyer hereby recognizes
and acknowledges this fact, and that such price adjustments are
valid without its prior agreement. Nevertheless and insofar as
possible, the Supplier will, within a reasonable time, inform the
Buyer of its intent to make such adjustments before they become
effective, giving the Buyer all reasonable information in its
possession concerning the need for, and methods used, in
computing them.
All costs of packing, handling, shipping, placing on board,
insuring etc. will be invoiced in addition. The Buyer will pay for
all rights, taxes and other official charges, as well as the duties
and expenses for customs formalities for export and import of
Products and, if necessary, transit abroad.
Should it be agreed for the payment of the goods to be made in
instalments, the missing, partial or late payment of even only one
instalment shall entitle the Seller to demand immediate payment
of the entire amount due, or, at the latter’s sole discretion, the
termination of the contract (pursuant the Romanian Civil Code).
Failure to make a payment or only making a partial payment and,
in any case any late payments, shall entitle the Seller to put on
hold performance of the contract and to withhold any goods that
are yet to be delivered. In this case, the Seller may also alter the
payment conditions for any additional goods supplied and, in any
case, – depending on the seriousness of the non-compliance -,
may terminate the supply contract by simply sending a
notification to this effect to the buyer, with the latter being unable
to claim any compensation or raise any objections in this regard.
In any case, the buyer shall be obliged to pay compensation for
any additional damages deriving from the failure to perform
other contracts.
In the event of late payments, all other legal consequences shall
apply.

products. After discovering any defect the Buyer will keep
the products at the state of the supply, allowing the Seller’s
inspection. Where the Buyer does not respect his obligation
(of noticing or if will use the products after discovering any
defect or will not deliver the products for the Seller
‚’inspection) the products will be considered accepted.
In the event of discovering hidden defects arrising from the
Buyer’s production process, the Supplier is not liable for

Seller may not be held liable for any losses or faults caused by
reasons other than the latter’s misconduct or gross negligence.
Any specific types of packaging not indicated in the order

without any charges, if it becomes aware that notice of protests
have been issued against the Buyer regarding cheques or bills of
exchange or other negotiable instruments, as well as if monitory,
ordinary, insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings, or out-of-court
proceedings, have been initiated against the Buyer.
In addition to the cases of missing or late payments, as provided
for by the relative clause, the Seller shall also be entitled to
terminate the supply contract by sending written notification to
this effect to the Buyer, if, after sending due notification that the
goods are ready to be picked up or after issuing the delivery
notice, said goods are not picked up by the deadline which the
Seller considers to be essential.

provided for by the law (including alert conditions, mobilisation,
blockades or war, also in the countries of raw material suppliers,
strikes and labour unrest, lockouts, fires, flooding, public
disasters, etc.), and also in the case of any orders and provisions
made by the Commission of the European Communities aimed
at restricting or in any case regulating the consumption of certain
raw materials, and the production and distribution of steel and
finished products, the Seller shall be entitled to fully or partially
withdraw from the sales contract that has been duly concluded,
as well as from any contracts still in the process of being defined,
should facts and circumstances arise, regardless of where, that
substantially alter market conditions, currency value and
industrial conditions in Romania.
In these cases and, in general, if the Seller withdraws from the
contract due to an impediment that has nothing to do with their
own actions or fault, the buyer shall not be entitled to any
compensation or reimbursement and, if requested to do so, must
pay for any finished goods or goods in the process of being made.

classed as “personal” pursuant to applicable legislation (as per
EU Reg. no. 679/16) this data shall be processed for the purposes
of the contract (forming the legal basis for the processing) and in
accordance with legal obligations, with the Seller acting as data
controller, in order to guarantee the compliance, security and
confidentiality of said data.
The data can be communicated in any form, also by consultation
by or making it available, to credit institutions, trade companies,
