5. Prices quoted by DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS are ex seller’s warehouse unless otherwise agreed in writing.

In particular, DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS reserves the right to vary quoted prices:
i. To conform to its price for similar goods at the date of despatch;
ii. To take account of changes in manufacturers’ costs or other costs between quotation and delivery.
6. Prices of goods sold by our producers may vary after the Purchaser's order and before the sending of the goods.

If he refuses the new price, DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS will have the right to cancel the order, and the Purchaser will be fully reimbursed.

CUSTOMERS ARE EXPRESSLY REQUESTED NOT TO RETURN GOODS WITHOUT OBTAINING BOTH AUTHORISATION TO DO SO AND INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PACKING AND CARRIAGE OF SUCH GOODS.
A return number will be issued which must appear on the cartons and paperwork.
Credit for goods returned can only be given, or exchanges made, if written permission has been obtained beforehand and if the returned goods are in the original unopened containers and in saleable condition.
Consumable and perishable products are non-returnable!
In case the Purchaser wishes to cancel an order :
- if the order has not yet been passed on to the Producer, or the Producer can cancel it without supplementary cost, DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS will charge a cancellation fee of 10% the initial price
- if the order has already been passed on to the Producer, and the Producer can not cancel it anymore, DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS will charge the full price of the order.
9. Ownership of the goods remains vested in DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS until fully paid for by the Purchaser. Until payment is made the Purchaser shall hold the goods on a fiduciary basis. The Purchaser shall be entitled to sell any Goods in the possession of the Purchaser but owned by DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS and the Purchaser shall be under a fiduciary duty to account to DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS for the proceeds of sale to the extent that any monies are owed by the Purchaser to DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS. The risk of the goods sold shall pass to the Purchaser at the point of delivery to the Purchaser or to the delivery agent. It is the responsibility of the Purchaser to request and pay for the insurance of goods ordered. Until such time as title to the Goods passes to the Purchaser (and provided the Goods are still in existence and have not been resold) DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS shall be entitled at any time to require the Purchaser to deliver up the Goods to DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS and if the Purchaser fails to do so, to enter upon the premises of the Purchaser or any third party where the Goods are stored and repossess the Goods.
10. Claims for goods lost or damaged in transit should immediately be logged with the carrier concerned. DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS will not entertain any claim for non delivery unless written notification is received by DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS within seven days of receipt.
11. Under no circumstances whatsoever shall DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS' responsibility (under contract tort breach of statutory duty or otherwise) to the Purchaser exceed the invoice price of the particular goods being the subject of the claim.
12. DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS shall have no liability whatsoever or howsoever to the Purchaser by way of indemnity or by reason of any breach of the Contract or a statutory duty or by tort (including but not limited to negligence) for any loss of profit, loss of use, loss of production, loss of contracts or for financial or economic loss or for any indirect or consequential damage whatsoever suffered by the purchaser even where such loss and/or damage had been within the contemplation of the parties at the date of entering into the contract. Nothing in this clause shall exclude any liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.
13. Without prejudice to any other remedies available to DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS, if the Purchaser makes a voluntary arrangement with its creditors or becomes subject to an administration order or (being an individual) becomes bankrupt or (being a company) goes into liquidation (other than for the purposes of amalgamation or reconstruction), DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS shall be entitled to cancel any agreement with the Purchaser or suspend any further deliveries and if the goods have been delivered but not paid for the price shall immediately become due and payable notwithstanding any previous arrangement.
14. Delivery dates provided by DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS are indicative only and made without obligation. Delivery dates depend on each good, and are independant from one another. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the contract unless previously agreed by DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS in writing and in any event failure to deliver goods by any specific date or any late delivery will not provide grounds for cancellation of any order for goods specially obtained for the Purchaser’s order.
15. The Purchaser accepts that all goods supplied by DARWIN MICROFLUIDICS are to be used strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s printed package insert supplied with the goods or applicable at time of supply.
