PeproTech EC Ltd (the“Seller”); and
the person(s) who buy products from the Seller (the“Purchaser”).
These terms and conditions of sale shall not be removed or varied in any way. No other express terms or conditions, whether written or oral, shall be incorporated into the contract between the Seller and the Purchaser (together, the “Parties”) without the express written consent of the Seller.
2. ORDERS AND SPECIFICATIONS
2.1 All offers or quotations by the Seller in respect of its products are made without obligation and subject to prior sale unless expressly agreed otherwise.
2.2 Purchase orders constitute an offer by the Purchaser to purchase products in accordance with these terms and conditions and are accepted only when the Seller issues a written order confirmation or invoice in respect of the same.
2.3 Any order of the Seller’s products by the Purchaser implies full acceptance of these terms and conditions of sale, which prevail over all other terms and conditions.
