Any order made to OJMAR will not be binding as long as the express acceptance of OJMAR in all its terms has not been stated. If OJMAR makes any proposal for modification, total or partial, to the order made by the Customer, neither the Customer’s initial order nor OJMAR’s proposal will be binding for this while an acceptance or express agreement of both Parties does not exist on all the terms of the agreement.
In the same way, any offer made by OJMAR, on its own initiative or requested by the Customer, will not be binding for OJMAR while there has been no acceptance and express request for the order by the Customer.
The products sold will be delivered and provided to the Customer under the negotiated conditions which are included in the estimate or in the acceptance of the order made by OJMAR.
The prices offered by OJMAR do not include any other aspect that is not that strictly referred to the price of the product, except when the inclusion of other items is expressly indicated in estimate.
All the conditions offered by OJMAR will be valid for three months from the date of the communication of the offer to the Customer. When this time has past, and even in the event of the acceptance of the offer by the Customer, OJMAR reserves the right to accept it in its initial terms or modify it in aspects such as the increase in prices due to circumstantial reasons like the increase in the cost of raw materials, labour contingencies or any others.
For orders with a completion deadline requiring more than five months, OJMAR likewise reserves the power to increase the price of the products due to the same circumstantial reasons and increase in the cost of raw materials indicated before. The price increase will be effected in proportion to the cost increase suffered by OJMAR due to the afore mentioned circumstances.
The payment conditions of the goods are those reflected in the offers and invoices. The delay in the compliance of the performance of the obligation to payment on behalf on the Customer in the terms indicated empowers OJMAR to apply a delay interest of 10% regarding the debited amount, without affecting any other action to which he might have the right to, due to consequential damage caused by non-payment.
3. Dispatch and delivery of the goods.
The dispatch of the goods, the risk transfer and the transport insurance will be in accordance with the conditions agreed to by the Parties. From the moment and the place of making the goods available to the Customer as per the agreement, OJMAR will not be responsible for any damage that the goods may suffer and/or the Customer directly or indirectly due to its non collection.
Any contingency regarding the transport of the goods when it is covered by OJMAR, including, amongst others, loss or damage, must be reported to OJMAR in the period of 24 hours since the risk transfer to the Customer. OJMAR will not be obliged to be responsible of any claim made for these reasons after the end of this period.
The delivery time of the goods indicated by OJMAR in its offer will begin to count from the day of reception of theconfirmation of the order by the customer. If once the acceptance has been made the Customer should make any change or addition to the order, the delivery time for the first order will start to count again from the express acceptance between the Parties of the changes made.
OJMAR will not be responsible for any delay in the delivery due to circumstances out of ones control or other unforeseeable circumstances when the agreement is made, including strikes or labour incidents, which will be notified to the Customer. In the event that these circumstances were to postpone the despatch of the goods more than six weeks with respect to the initially foreseen period, the Customer will be empowered to resolve the operation without the right to make no another claim or action against OJMAR for this reason.

The notification must be made in writing, detailing the goods affected and the defects suffered. The Customer will be obliged to send OJMAR the amount of samples of the goods requested as well as allowing, when appropriate, OJMAR access to the goods in the Customer’s installations or where the goods may be situated. In the event of not sending the goods or not allowing inspection, OJMAR will consider that no defect exists and will accept no responsibility.
The costs occasioned due to OJMAR’s inspection of the goods indicated by the Customer as faulty, such as transport expenses, postal charges or others, will be the responsibility of OJMAR only if the fault in the manufacture of the product were to be proven.

The domain of the products sold by OJMAR will not be transferred to the Customer until it has not verified the total payment of the products in the conditions agreed upon by the Parties. Notwithstanding, the Customer will be responsible for the state of the goods from the moment in which the Parties agree that a risk transfer has occurred in the transaction. Until the complete payment of the good has been made and from the moment in which the Customer breaches the agreed payment commitment, OJMAR will be legitimised to require the Customer to return the goods at the expense of the Customer. While the Customer has not paid the total cost and therefore while OJMAR reserves the domain, the Customer will be obliged to communicate to anybody it transfers the possession of the goods to, whether it be independently
or together with or as a part of other elements, the domain reservation existing in favour of OJMAR. If for any circumstance OJMAR were not to be able to the possession of the goods it is legitimised to do, the Client will be penalised 20% of the value of the goods, as well as the intrinsic value of the goods and other damages it is entitled to receive.
