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 an Order (as defined in clause 2.1) or a Cooperation Agreement (as defined in clause 2.2) with ReSea Project ApS, ReSea Project Sales ApS ("ReSea") commits to arrange for the collection of plastic from the oceans and rivers on behalf of the customer ("Customer"). At the same time, the Customer commits to pay the costs hereof, as further specified in the Order or the Cooperation Agreement between the Parties. These Terms and Conditions of Sales ("Terms and Conditions") apply between the 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 to the Customer. This offer is open for acceptance within fourteen (14) days from the date of issue, unless otherwise specifically stated therein, and is subject to the availability of the service solution offered. Upon a positive reply from the Customer, an order confirmation or any other similar acknowledgement is sent by ReSea to the Customer, which is to be accepted either by signature from the Customer, written acceptance from the Customer or, provided that an invoice is enclosed, by payment of the enclosed invoice. If such acceptance has not been received by ReSea within seven (7) days, the order confirmation or similar acknowledgement is to be deemed null and void. When acceptance has been received by ReSea, the order confirmation or similar acknowledgement is to be considered approved by the Customer and the Parties have hereby entered into a legally binding agreement ("Order"). For the avoidance of doubt, a legally binding Order may also be entered into by the Parties by exchanging e-mails or any other similar form of communication.
2.2. If ReSea and the Customer have entered into a cooperation agreement, which is to be regarded as a framework agreement between the Parties ("Cooperation Agreement"), invoices and (in the case of Variable Orders, as defined in clause 2.3) order confirmations or similar acknowledgements will be issued according to the Cooperation Agreement. Hence, if a Cooperation Agreement is entered into between the Parties, the provisions of the Cooperation Agreement will regulate the order process rather than clause 2.1.
2.3. The Order and/or the 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 or quarterly invoicing to the Customer based on the Customer’s sale of its own products the month before ("Variable Order").
2.4. The Customer cannot assign the rights and obligations of the Order and/or the Cooperation Agreement to a third party without the prior written consent of ReSea.
3.1.Services covered by the service solution arranged for by ReSea are described on the website www.reseaproject.com and are subject to change without prior notice. Any change in services provided will be stated on the website. Changes to services do not affect legally binding Orders prior to the changes.
3.2. ReSea is responsible for the handling of the plastic upon collection without further costs incurred by the Customer. The services will be performed as a documented plastic collection.
3.3. The Customer is responsible for its use of the services fulfilling any law or standards and/or if the services can be used for the Customer’s purposes, unless specifically derogated in writing. The Customer will procure that the plastic waste collected by ReSea is not falsely used for marketing purposes (greenwashing, etc.) by the Customer’s own customers, e.g., by ensuring that the collected plastic waste cannot be claimed to have been collected more than once.
4. Prices and Terms of Payment
4.1. The prices for services shall be those set forth in the order confirmation or any other similar acknowledgement and invoice. All prices are exclusive of taxes, impositions and other charges, including, but not limited to, sales, use, excise, value-added and similar taxes or charges imposed by any government authority.
4.2. Unless expressly stated otherwise in the order confirmation or any other similar acknowledgement or invoice, the payment terms are net cash eight (8) days from the date of invoice without offset or deduction.
