ReSea Project Sales ApS
– Terms and Conditions of Sales
1. Purpose and Scope of Applicability
1.1. The Parties agree that reduction and recycling of plastic is crucial to a sustainable environment, especially in relation to the oceans. To this end, based on a distribution agreement with ReSea Project ApS, ReSea Project Sales ApS (“ReSea”) commits to arrange for the collection of plastic from the ocean and rivers on behalf of the Customer. At the same time, the Customer commits to pay the costs hereof, as further specified in the agreement between the Parties. These Terms and Conditions of Sales (“Terms and Condi tions”) apply between a customer (“Customer”) and ReSea to the extent that they have not been specifically derogated from by written agreement between the Parties.
1.2. These Terms and Conditions apply to all sales and services by ReSea notwithstanding any conflicting, contrary or additional terms and conditions in any purchase order or other communication from the Customer. No such conflicting, contrary or additional terms and conditions shall be deemed accepted by ReSea unless and until this is expressly confirmed in writing by ReSea.
2. Offers, Orders and Order Confirmations
2.1. Upon initial correspondence between the Parties an offer for a service solution will be sent by ReSea.
This offer is open for acceptance within fourteen days from the date of issue, unless otherwise specifically stated therein, and is subject to the availability of the service solution offered. Upon positive reply from the Customer, an order confirmation is sent by ReSea which is to be accepted either by signature from the Customer or by payment of the invoice that accompanies the order confirmation. If such acceptance has not been received by ReSea within 7 days, the order confirmation is to be deemed null and void. When signature/acceptance has been received by ReSea, the order confirmation is to be considered approved by the Customer and the parties have hereby entered into a legally binding agreement (“the Order”).
2.2. In most cases, ReSea and the Customer will furthermore have entered into a cooperation agreement to be regarded as a framework agreement between the Parties (“Cooperation Agreement”) under which invoices and (in the case of Variable Orders, see clause 2.3 below) order confirmations will be issued. If a
Cooperation Agreement is entered into between the Parties, the provisions of that agreement will regulate the order process rather than the above clause 2.1.
2.3. The Order and/or Cooperation Agreement will state which type of order the Customer has chosen: (i) a fixed order for a set amount of plastic collection, which is invoiced to the Customer up front in full or in yearly, quarterly or monthly installments (“Fixed Order”), or (ii) a variable order with monthly invoicing to Customer based on Customer’s sale of its own products the month before (“Variable Order”).
