    • These general terms and conditions of sale (“Terms and Conditions) govern the offering, sale and delivery of all goods and/or services (jointly referred to as “Goods”) by or on behalf of Hans Boodt Mannequins B.V. (“Hans Boodt”) to a purchaser (“Purchaser”).
    • Hans Boodt hereby rejects any and all other terms (including Purchaser’s purchase order terms and conditions) offered by Purchaser or upon which Purchaser may condition any purchase order or to which Purchaser may limit Hans Boodt’s acceptance.
    • Hans Boodt’s acceptance of a purchase orders and/or Hans Boodt’s performance in connection with such purchase orders are expressly conditional on Purchaser’s assent to these Terms and Conditions. Hans Boodt hereby rejects any and all other terms regardless of whether a purchase order or such other terms are construed as an offer, counter-offer or otherwise, or whether such other terms are construed as additions to or differ from these Terms and Conditions. Unless Purchaser’s notifies Hans Boodt in writing that Purchaser does not accept these Terms and Conditions as soon as practicable after first receiving them, Purchaser shall be deemed to have accepted these Terms and Conditions and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Purchaser’s acceptance or use of the Goods shall be deemed Purchaser’s assent to these Terms and Conditions.
    • These Terms and Conditions are deemed to be a part of, and incorporated into, every sales agreement for Goods between Purchaser and Hans Boodt (“Agreement”).
    • Hans Boodt reserves the right to amend the Terms and Conditions at any time. Hans Boodt will notify Purchaser of any such amendments by sending the amended Terms and Conditions to Purchaser or by posting the amended Terms and Conditions on its website. Purchaser may reject the amended Terms and Conditions within 30 days by notice to Hans Boodt. If Purchaser does not reject the amended Terms and Conditions within that period, they will take effect upon its expiry. The amended Terms and Conditions will take effect on the effective date. The amended Conditions shall apply to all transactions concluded between Purchaser and Hans Boodt after the date of such notification.
    • Unless stated otherwise, quotations made by Hans Boodt in whatever form are not binding to Hans Boodt and merely constitute an invitation to Purchaser to place a purchase order. All quotations issued by Hans Boodt are revocable and subject to change without notice.
    • Each purchase order will be binding on Hans Boodt only once it has been confirmed by Hans Boodt in writing or upon actual performance thereof (“Order Confirmation”).
    • Hans Boodt shall be entitled to refuse a purchase order without indicating the reasons.
    • All purchase orders are confirmed subject to the availability of the Goods at the time of dispatch.
    • Purchaser is not entitled to cancel or reduce its volume requirement under an issued purchase order (in whole or in part) once it has been confirmed by Hans Boodt. If the purchase order contains a fixed or minimum volume of Goods, then the Purchaser shall pay the full price whether or not Purchaser takes delivery of the Goods.
    • Unless specifically agreed otherwise, Hans Boodt shall deliver the Goods as follows:
  • If the Goods are supplied from the facility of Hans Boodt in the Netherlands: FCA Hans Boodt’s  Facility, Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands
  • If the Goods are supplied from a Hans Boodt facility in China: FCA Hans Boodt’s Facility, Xiamen, China
  • If the Goods are printed on demand in a Hans Boodt facility in the United States: FCA Hans Boodt’s Storage Facility United States
    • Unless agreed otherwise in the Agreement, any times or dates for delivery by Hans Boodt are estimates and shall not be of the essence. In no event shall Hans Boodt be liable for any damages and/or costs due to delay in delivery. Delay in delivery of any Goods shall not relieve Purchaser of its obligation to accept delivery thereof, unless Purchaser cannot reasonably be expected to accept such late delivery.
    • Purchaser shall promptly inspect the Goods to confirm conformity with the specifications. All claims by Purchaser, including, without limitation, claims for breach of warranty or shortage, must be made in writing, precisely describing the nature of the claim and received by Hans Boodt within ten (10) business days after Purchaser’s receipt of the Goods. Claims not timely made as stated above and all claims made after the Goods have been resold by Purchaser, shall be forever barred, waived, and null and void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, apparent transport damages must be notified to Hans Boodt promptly upon delivery of the Goods.
    • In case of non-conformity, as Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy, Hans Boodt shall, at its choice, either replace or repair at its own cost such non-conforming Goods, or refund purchaser the price paid therefor.
    • Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Goods delivered to Purchaser may not be identical and differ from samples or models provided to the Purchaser. Minor, trade-customary or technically unavoidable deviations in terms of quality, quantity, width, color, texture, finish, or size, cannot constitute a basis for a claim for non-conformity.
    • Hans Boodt reserves the right to modify the specifications of Goods without notice provided that the modification will not materially affect the performance, form or fit of the affected Goods.
    • For Goods manufactured or printed to Purchaser’s specifications or instructions (“Custom Goods”), the Purchaser acknowledges and agrees all orders are final and may not be cancelled, returned, or refunded for any reason including, without limitation, delays in shipping or delivery.


    • The price and currency stated in the Order Confirmation shall be considered to be the price and currency agreed between Purchaser and Hans Boodt for the sale of Goods. In case of multiple or future deliveries, the price and currency of such deliveries are subject to revision by Hans Boodt at any time as set forth in subsequent Order Confirmation(s) relating to such deliveries.
    • Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all prices include the costs of standard transport-worthy packing material, but do not include any applicable tax, duty, levy or charge (including value-added taxes) in any jurisdiction in relation to the Goods or the delivery thereof. Purchaser is responsible for payment of all such taxes (excluding income taxes owed by Hans Boodt on account of the sale of the Goods), duties, excises, levies or charges (including value-added taxes) which Hans Boodt may be required to pay to any authority (national, state or local) upon the sale, production or transportation of the Goods.
    • Payment shall be made at the time agreed in the Order Confirmation, or if no time has been agreed, before the Goods are delivered.
    • Hans Boodt may charge Purchaser interest on any amounts not paid on-time in accordance with the agreed payment terms, up to the maximum amount of interest permitted by applicable law. Hans Boodt is entitled, in so far as the delivery has not yet been made, to suspend the delivery as a whole until it has fully received all amounts outstanding.
    • All payments will be made without set-off, deductions or counterclaims. If the Purchaser fails to fulfill one or more of his obligations under an Agreement, all costs, reasonably incurred in collecting the sums due out of court will be for his account, including the costs of collection agencies, bailiffs and attorneys. The Purchaser shall also reimburse Hans Boodt for all costs reasonably incurred in connection with legal proceedings where judgment is fully or substantially awarded against the Purchaser. These costs shall in any case include the fees of outside experts, bailiffs, and attorneys, even if these costs exceed the amount awarded by the court.
    • Hans Boodt will retain title to all Goods delivered or to be delivered to the Purchaser until the Purchaser has fulfilled all its obligations towards Hans Boodt under an Agreement, which obligations include, but are not limited to, payment of all amounts outstanding under an Agreement. If the Purchaser fails to properly fulfill any of his obligations vis-à-vis Hans Boodt, or if Hans Boodt has reasonable doubts that the Purchaser will fail to fulfill those obligations, Hans Boodt will be authorized to take back the Goods delivered subject to retention of title without prejudice to any other rights or remedies, such as it right to claim further damages.
    • Until payment for the Goods has been completed, Purchaser is entitled to use the Goods solely to the extent required in its ordinary course of business, and, to the extent possible, shall: (a) keep the Goods separate and in a clearly identifiable manner; (b) notify Hans Boodt immediately of any claims by third parties which may affect the Goods; and (c) adequately insure the Goods.
    • If (i) Purchaser is in default of performance of its obligations towards Hans Boodt, in particular if any payment due from Purchaser is overdue, and fails to provide adequate assurance of Purchaser’s performance before the date of scheduled delivery; or (ii) if Hans Boodt has reasonable doubts that the Purchaser will fail to fulfill those obligations and Purchaser fails to provide to Hans Boodt adequate assurance of Purchaser’s performance before the date of scheduled delivery and in any case within thirty (30) days of Hans Boodt’s demand for such assurance; or (iii) if Purchaser becomes insolvent or unable to pay its debts as they mature, or goes into liquidation (other than for the purpose of a reconstruction or amalgamation) or any bankruptcy proceeding shall be instituted by or against Purchaser or if a trustee or receiver or administrator is appointed for all or a substantial part of the assets of Purchaser or if Purchaser enters into a deed of arrangement or makes any assignment for the benefit of its creditors; or (iv) in case of non-compliance of Purchaser with applicable laws, then Hans Boodt may by notice in writing forthwith, without prejudice to any of its other rights:
  • demand return and take repossession of any delivered Goods which have not been paid for and all costs relating to the recovery of the Goods shall be for the account of Purchaser; and/or
  • suspend its performance or terminate the Confirmed Order for pending delivery of Goods unless Purchaser makes such payment for Goods on a cash in advance basis or provides adequate assurance of such payment for Goods to Hans Boodt.
    • In any such event of clause 1 all outstanding claims of Hans Boodt shall become due and payable immediately with respect to the Goods delivered to Purchaser and not repossessed by Hans Boodt and Purchaser shall indemnify Hans Boodt from any and all losses, liabilities, costs, claims, damages (including consequential or indirect damages from loss or actual or potential profits from resale and any exchange losses) demands and expenses (including legal costs) arising from or in connection with such event of clause 8.1.
    • Hans Boodt solely warrants that the Goods shall conform to the specifications that have been agreed upon by Hans Boodt and Purchaser in writing, for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of shipment of the Goods.
    • Any Goods replaced or repaired hereunder shall carry only the un-expired term of the warranty applicable to the replaced or repaired Goods.
    • In no event shall Hans Boodt be responsible for defects due to physical damage suffered to the Goods as a result of improper handling during or after shipment, misuse, neglect, improper installation or operation, repair, alteration, accident or for any other cause not attributable to Hans Boodt.
    • Hans Boodt hereby disclaims and rejects any and all other warranties, expressed or implied, with respect to the Goods, including but not limited to any warranty of fitness for any purpose, of merchantability or of non-infringement.
    • In no event will Hans Boodt’s aggregate liability to Purchaser for all damages arising from any and all claims related to any breach of this Agreement, non-delivery of any Goods, or delivery of any Goods, regardless of whether the form of action is based on contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability, statute, or otherwise, exceed the total price paid by Purchaser to Hans Boodt for the specific Goods in respect of which damages are claimed.
    • In addition, and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Purchaser waives any claim to indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, exemplary or multiplied damages, or lost profits, lost revenues, or loss of business reputation (in each case regardless of whether categorized as direct or consequential damages), arising out of or relating to any breach of this Agreement, non-delivery of any Goods, or delivery of any Goods.
    • To the extent permitted by applicable law, Purchaser waives and agrees not to assert non-contractual claims arising under state law relating to any breach of this Agreement, non-delivery of any Goods, or delivery of any Goods, and these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed to include such language as may be required to effect such waiver.
    • No liability shall result from delay in performance or non-performance by Hans Boodt caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control (a “Force Majeure Event”). A Force Majeure Event shall include, without limitation, acts of God, natural disasters, floating ice, fire, flood, earthquakes, pandemic, epidemics, explosions, riots, wars, terrorism, civil disturbances, perils of the sea, blockades, machinery breakages, inactions or prohibitions, shortages of raw materials or utilities, delay in delivery or defects in Goods supplied by Hans Boodt’s suppliers or subcontractors, import and export obstruction, interference of governmental measures (incl. changes in import and export regulations, duties, and levies), shipwreck before or after declaration of shipment, strike at factory and/or railway company and/or seaport, serious disruption of Hans Boodt’s business, including lockout, excessive sickness absence, defects in equipment, interruption in the supply of energy as well as any impossibility to perform the Agreement due to a failure of any supplier of Hans Boodt or of persons or items hired/used by Hans Boodt for the performance of the Agreement – these matters to be understood in the widest sense and also when these eventualities could be considered to be foreseeable.
    • If for any reason, including but not limited to the Force Majeure Events described above, Hans Boodt is unable to supply the total demand for Goods, Hans Boodt may distribute its available supply among any or all purchasers, as well as departments and divisions of Hans Boodt, on such basis as it may deem fair and practical, without liability for any failure of performance which may result therefrom.
    • If the Force Majeure Event lasts longer than sixty (60) days, either Party is entitled to terminate affected part of the Agreement with immediate effect by providing written notice to the other Party without any liability to the other Party.
    • All intellectual property rights arising out of or in connection with the Goods shall be the exclusive property of Hans Boodt, even if Hans Boodt has developed such Goods upon Purchaser’s specific request.
    • Hans Boodt has not verified the possible existence of third party intellectual property rights which might be infringed as a consequence of the sale and/or delivery of the Goods and Hans Boodt shall not be held liable for any loss or damage in that respect.
    • The sale of Goods shall not, by implication or otherwise, convey any license under any intellectual property right relating to the compositions and/or applications of the Goods, and Purchaser explicitly assumes all risks of any intellectual property infringement by reason of its importation and/or the use of the Goods.
    • The Purchaser will treat as confidential all information provided by Hans Boodt and shall not make such information available to any third party or use such information for any purpose other than and in as far as this is necessary in connection with the performance of the Purchaser under the Agreement. This obligation remains in force also after the Agreement has been carried out or dissolved.
    • The Purchaser is not entitled to assign its rights and obligations under an Agreement to a third party without the prior written consent of Hans Boodt.
    • Hans Boodt is entitled to assign its rights and obligations under an Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party to an affiliate of Hans Boodt.
    • Failure, delay or omission by Hans Boodt to enforce at any time any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of Hans Boodt’s right to act or to enforce any such provision. No waiver by Hans Boodt of any breach of Purchaser’s obligations shall constitute a waiver of any other prior or subsequent breach.
    • In the event that any provision of the Terms and Conditions shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable, the same shall not affect in any respect whatsoever, the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions between the parties and shall be severed therefrom. The pertaining provisions held to be invalid or unenforceable shall be reformed to meet the legal and economic intent of the original provisions to the maximum extent permitted by law.
    • All notices required to be served on the parties pursuant to an Agreement shall be communicated rapidly in legible form. Methods of rapid communication for the purpose of this clause are defined and mutually recognized as: – either telex, or letter if delivered by hand on the date of writing, or telefax, or e-mail, or other electronic means. If receipt of any notice is contested, the burden of proof of transmission shall be on the sender who shall, in the case of a dispute, have to establish that the notice was actually transmitted to the addressee. Any notice received after 1600 hours on a business day shall be deemed to have been received on the business day following.
    • The Agreement and any disputes or claims arising out of or in connection with the Agreement are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of The Netherlands, without giving effect to conflicts of law principles that would result in the application of the substantive laws of another jurisdiction. The applicability of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) concluded in Vienna on 11 April 1980 is excluded.
    • Any disputes arising in relation to an Agreement (including disputes regarding the existence and validity of an Agreement) will be settled in the court of Midden-Nederland, The Netherlands, and each Party irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action, or proceeding and waives any objection based on improper venue or forum non conveniens.
