Terms and Conditions for Sale and Delivery

1. General

1.1 These terms and conditions (“Terms”) govern any sale and delivery to Buyer of products manufactured and/or distributed by Evosep including but not limited to Evosep One, its spare parts and Consumables (“Products”). Evosep is defined as Evosep ApS, a Danish limited liability company, domiciled at Buchwaldsgade 35, 3., 5000 Odense, Denmark, with a business registration number DK37510068, and Evosep Inc, incorporated under the laws of Delaware, with the registered business address at 1 Broadway, 14th Floor, Cambridge, MA 02142 United States (collectively “Evosep”). Evosep and Buyer may each be referred to herein as a “Party” or collectively as the “Parties.”

1.2 These Terms prevail over any of Buyer’s general terms and conditions of purchase regardless of whether or when Buyer has submitted its purchase order or such terms. Fulfilment of the Buyer’s order does not constitute acceptance of any of the Buyer’s terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend these Terms. Where the Parties have entered into a separate written agreement, such agreement takes precedence over these Terms in the event of any conflict.

1.3 Evosep is entitled to unilaterally and at any time modify these Terms with legally binding effect for both Parties immediately after publication of the modified Terms.

1.4 If any term or provision of these Terms is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of these Terms or invalidate or render unenforceable such term in any other jurisdiction.

2. Order Confirmation

2.1 No order is binding until Buyer has received a written confirmation of sale, invoice or quotation from Evosep (“Order Confirmation”). These Terms are automatically included by reference in any Order Confirmation.

3. Delivery and Shipping Terms

3.4 Any liability of Evosep for non-delivery of Products shall be limited to replacing the Products within a reasonable time.

3.5 Evosep retains all title and ownership in the Products until payment in full is received by Evosep.

Buyer’s failure to give such notice shall be deemed an unqualified acceptance of the Products and a waiver by Buyer of all claims with respect thereto and shall further serve as confirmation that Buyer represents it has examined the Products and that they are acceptable and suitable for their intended purpose.

6.2 Defects or shortcomings in the Products will not be ground for cancellation of an order by Buyer on condition that Evosep offers to repair or replace the Products as originally ordered within a reasonable period of time.
