All costs relating to the transport of the Products ordered are to be borne entirely by the Customer.

5. TERMS OF DELIVERY

In such cases, in entering into the agreement the Customer renounces any indemnity or claim for compensation against BIONDI Srl for direct or indirect damage arising from delays or incomplete fulfilment of deliveries. Independently of the cases mentioned above, should the Customer become even only partially in default and/or should events occur such as to negatively affect the solvency of the Customer, BIONDI Srl without prejudice to the right to demand correct fulfilment and in any case the right to compensation for damages, on prior notification to the Customer reserve the right to resolve the contract and/or suspend (as per art. 1460 of civil code) fulfilment of their own obligations, suspend deliveries, annul the remaining part of the order and/or claim the entire remaining credit.

The guarantee undertaken by BIONDI Srl does not include defects and/or damage arising, by way of example and without exclusion, from improper use, abuse or negligent and/or improper storage, or from use not compliant with the technical requirements or following errors in design or manufacture of the apparatus into which they are inserted, and arising in any case from any circumstances independent of BIONDI Srl. Any complaint is to be submitted to BIONDI Srl in writing and within the guarantee period. The Customer shall, for the admissibility of the complaint and to enjoy the guarantee provided for in this clause, prove that the product has been properly conserved and correctly used.

Any liability that may arise from the Products for events subsequent to delivery, including any damage to things and/or persons (also to accessories of the Products) shall be borne exclusively by the Customer. The guarantee provided shall be limited, as decided exclusively by BIONDI Srl, to replacement (with either identical or similar products) or, alternatively to the refund of the amount paid by the Customer and corresponding only to the price of such products as are defective. Any further and/or greater liability is excluded, such as compensation for any damage (direct/indirect, damage due to loss of production, loss of profit, consequential damage).
8. RETURNED GOODS

The allocation of a goods return authorization number does not in itself imply acknowledgement of the defect/flaw and consequent recognition of guarantee rights.
In case of authorized return of goods, the shipping expenses shall be borne entirely by the Customer.
BIONDI Srl reserve the right to examine the returned product that is claimed to be defective. Should it be shown that the alleged defect/flaw is non-existent and/or that the guarantee times have not been respected, BIONDI Srl reserve the right to send it back to the Customer, who shall entirely bear the entire transport expenses of the returned goods.
Payments shall be made, unless otherwise agreed in writing, completely, according to the manner indicated in the relevant supply contract conditions. Delay in payment, even in part, of invoices beyond their expiry date shall give rise, save compensation of any greater damages, to the immediate effectiveness of arrears interest in the degree determined by D.Lgs. (legislative decree) 231/2002, without any need for formal notice of default.
Should BIONDI Srl not exercise their rights in case of default by the Customer, this shall in no way limit/prejudice the right of BIONDI Srl in case of persistent default, i.e. if this should recur also at a subsequent date.
