delivery terms

Our delivery conditions form an integral part of an offer. They apply in all points that are not regulated by additional provisions.

Validity period

Our offer is valid for the period specified therein. After that it is non-binding.

Delivery time standard hardware and software

The delivery time for hardware and software is approximately that shown in the offer after receipt of the technically and commercially clarified written order and, if necessary, receipt of the agreed down payment. It applies from receipt of the order and is specified in the order confirmation and is binding.

In the case of customer-specific projects, the production documents signed and approved by the customer apply as the start of the delivery time.

Pricing

Our prices are fixed prices and are strictly net, ex production plant. In the case of stock items, ex warehouse. Individual prices shown are only valid within the framework of the total price. Discounts do not apply to additional services. The prices are based on the specified delivery time. If the delivery dates are postponed or extended by the customer, we reserve the right to make appropriate price adjustments. This also applies to changes / adjustments after the date confirmation by INTECH-ICS AG.

Commissioning prices only apply if the systems are fully assembled and wired when they are commissioned.

Our prices are exclusive of VAT. This is shown separately. If a different VAT rate is applicable at the time of delivery, we will make the appropriate adjustments.

Installation

Implementation of the commissioning in one go, without hindrance. System components not included in our scope of delivery are function-tested. All devices are properly installed and connected. The functionality is guaranteed by the operator up to "revision operation" (manual control).

In the event of changes in the scope of the order compared to the quantity structure in the offer, an additional or reduced price will result.

Decreases

The readiness for acceptance will be indicated by us in good time. Dates, cost regulations and the place of acceptance for partial and final acceptances as well as any necessary official acceptances are to be agreed separately in the case of an order.

The acceptance is documented in a corresponding protocol.

Guarantee

Warranty defines the responsibility of the contractor towards claims and rights of the client, for liability and warranty.

  • This is basically limited to the total amount of the contract for delivery and possible assembly. Further claims, as well as indirect damage, consequential damage or losses, such as loss of income, loss of use, loss of production, capital costs or costs associated with business interruption, are excluded.
  • If the assembly was not carried out by INTECH-ICS AG, expenses for working time on site, travel time / costs and expenses are not included and are subject to a charge.
  • The guarantee amounts to a maximum of 2 years or, in the case of heavy use, the maximum operating hours determined with the customer from delivery. The former is considered the end date.
  • If delivery and commissioning are less than 2 months apart, the later date counts as the start of the warranty.
  • The warranty does not apply in the event of failures due to wear and tear, excessive use, vandalism, manipulation by the customer or third parties or natural events.
  • We provide compensation for material and manufacturing defects in accordance with Swiss law. Any transport costs incurred are to be borne by the customer.
  • In the case of software, the warranty provides for software errors to be corrected free of charge only within the warranty period. For software errors, i.e. deviations from the respective functional description provided to us, we guarantee as follows:
    • The fault diagnosis and elimination takes place at our discretion on the customer system or in our house. The elimination of the error assumes that it is a reproducible error that occurs in the last version delivered. The customer must provide evidence that the fault is in the software we have supplied.
  • The costs for consequential errors are not subject to our guarantee.

Terms of payment

We reserve the full right of ownership and use of all products and services sold until we have received the full purchase price. In the event of a delay during the project planning and manufacturing phase not caused by us, we will allow ourselves to issue a previously communicated partial invoice for the work performed and material purchases at the originally planned end of the project. 90% maximum.
