Deviations from general terms and conditions are only valid if they have been agreed in writing with BEETINY.

2. Quotations:

All offers are made in writing or they are been sent electronically. All offers issued by BEETINY are valid for thirty days. When this period has expired, the quotation will expire. BEETINY cannot be held to its quotations if the other party should have understood that the quotation or any part of the quotation contains an obvious mistake or clerical error. For example, due to remarkable differences between the given ground plan and the corresponding quotation. Prices in quotations do not automatically apply to future orders or reorders.

BEETINY and the other party can agree that payment is made in different versions according to certain agreed percentages. The other party is not authorized to deduct any counterclaim from the amount due. Objections to the amount of the invoice do not suspend the payment obligations.

If payment isn’t received after the expiry of 14 days after the invoice date, the other party will be in default by operation of law without notice of default. From the moment of default, the other party owes an interest of 5% per month on the amount due.

If the dissolution can be attributed to the other party, the other party is liable for the damage suffered by BEETINY.

13. Force majeure:

In case of force majeure, a shortcoming cannot be attributed to BEETINY or the other party. In this case, both parties are obliged to fulfil the obligations arising from the agreement.

14. Guarantee:

BEETINY guarantees that the delivered goods comply with the agreement concluded between BEETINY and the other party, using good workmanship and sound material. BEETINY only provides a warranty on defects that are caused by a manufacturing and / or construction defect, for which in this case the warranty period is respectively 2 and 5 years. The delivered products may contain natural products that are subject to weather influences. However, minor deviations in colour, thickness and quality of the products do not mean that they do not comply with the agreement. However, damage to the delivered good can arise from subsidence of the surface or an incorrect construction of the other party. If the foregoing occurs, the guarantee will lapse and BEETINY is not obliged to compensate for any damage. Any form of guarantee will lapse if a defect has arisen as a result of improper use or a lack of care or if the defect is the result of changes made by the other party or by third parties.

The warranty also lapses if a defect has arisen as a result of circumstances beyond BEETINY’s control, such as weather conditions. When the warranty period has expired, all costs for repair or replacement are for the account of the other party.

15. Inspection:

The other party is obliged to inspect the goods delivered at the time of delivery, or in any case within three days after delivery. In addition, the other party is obliged to investigate whether the quantity and quality of the delivered goods correspond with what has been agreed in the agreement. Visible defects and shortages must be reported to BEETINY in writing within three days of delivery. Non-visible defects and shortages must be reported to BEETINY in writing within one day of their discovery. The right to a specific refund of the price, repair or replacement of the good will lapse if the defects are not reported to BEETINY in writing within the aforementioned period. The payment obligation will not be suspended if the other party notifies BEETINY of the defect within the set term.

16. Liability:

BEETINY is never liable for indirect damage. The other party must report the damage for which BEETINY can be held liable in writing to BEETINY as soon as possible, but in any case within eight days after the damage has occurred. If this is not done, any right to compensation for this damage will lapse. If BEETINY should be held liable for any damage to the other party, it will be limited to one and only to the maximum invoice amount or to the amount for which BEETINY’s insurance is entitled, plus the deductible that BEETINY bears in accordance with the insurance.
