All other terms or conditions are expressly rejected by DIT Tools. Buyer agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions whether or not expressly so stated in any order, confirmation or otherwise. Each deviation from or modification of these Terms and Conditions requires the express written agreement of DIT Tools in each instance. Modification or waiver of any provision in one instance shall not constitute modification or waiver in any other instance.
1.4 Buyer may not without DIT Tools’s prior written consent assign all or any of its rights under any contract incorporating these conditions.
1.5 Any reference in these Terms and Conditions to DIT Tools shall be taken to include all members of DIT Tools’s group (meaning DIT Tools, any subsidiary or holding undertaking from time to time of DIT Tools, and any subsidiary undertaking from time to time of a holding undertaking of that DIT Tools.
No quotation given by DIT Tools either verbally or in writing shall constitute an offer.
3.1 Goods are supplied in accordance with the relevant manufacturer’s standard specifications but DIT Tools reserves the right for it and/or manufacturers to make such improvements and modifications in such specifications without prior notice as it and/or they consider(s) desirable in the circumstances and without any further liability to Buyer, without obligation to modify or change any goods previously delivered or to supply new goods in accordance with earlier specifications, unless DIT Tools agrees otherwise in writing and subject always to Buyer paying any additional charges that may be payable therefore.
3.2 If DIT Tools or its suppliers wish to make any improvements or modifications to any goods to be supplied to Buyer that would affect form, fit or function, DIT Tools shall not implement such improvement or modification without the prior agreement of Buyer.
3.3 If Buyer wishes to change the specification of any goods to be supplied by DIT Tools then DIT Tools shall not be obliged to agree to such change. If DIT Tools does agree to any proposed change requested by Buyer then DIT Tools shall be entitled to adjust the price, delivery and warranty accordingly.
3.4 All technical information and particulars of goods and performance given by DIT Tools are given as accurately as possible but are not to be treated as binding or as forming part of any contract with Buyer unless specifically confirmed or agreed by DIT Tools in writing.
The specification for packaging the goods shall be entirely at the discretion of DIT Tools who shall have the right to pack all goods in such manner, with such materials, and in such quantities as DIT Tools thinks fit, and who shall not be obliged to comply with any packaging instructions or requests from Buyer. The cost of special packaging, if agreed or deemed necessary by DIT Tools, shall be an additional charge.
5.1 Unless otherwise accepted by DIT Tools in writing the price of the goods shall be the relevant price in DIT Tools’s current price lists at the date of purchase or pre-order (in the case of the latter, with a confirmed purchase order or deposit) (whichever is the sooner), subject always to Conditions 5.2 and 5.3.
5.2 Prices are subject to alteration by DIT Tools at any time. DIT Tools shall notify Buyer of any alteration in price, whereupon Buyer may cancel the contract (without liability to DIT Tools) by giving notice in writing to DIT Tools within 7 days.
5.3 In the case of pre-ordered goods that are purchased by DIT Tools in a currency other than euro (EUR), final pricing is subject to fluctuation in foreign exchange rates and will be agreed between DIT Tools and Buyer before completion of the sale. Once pricing has been agreed and DIT Tools has ordered the goods, Buyer may only cancel its order in accordance with Condition 17.
5.4 Buyer shall bear the cost of any applicable sales, value added, excise, or similar tax in relation to the goods unless Buyer provides DIT Tools with a tax exemption certificate or licence acceptable to the taxing authorities before shipment. Prices are exclusive of VAT and other taxes, and ex-works (see below).
In the case of pre-orders where a manufacturer RRP (Recommended Retail Price) isn’t available at the time of order, DIT Tools will communicate final pricing to Buyer at the earliest possible opportunity. Buyer may cancel a pre-order provided it does so in accordance with Condition 17.
7.1 All orders are subject to the cost of packing and carriage to Buyer’s nominated address by DIT Tools’s standard method of transportation. Any requests from Buyer for delivery outside mainland Estonia or other than by DIT Tools’s normal method of transportation are subject to DIT Tools’s prior agreement and shall entitle DIT Tools to adjust the price and delivery terms accordingly. Whilst DIT Tools will use reasonable endeavours to keep to any agreed delivery date, it accepts no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage resulting from delay however caused nor shall late delivery or non-delivery be a basis for cancellation of any order by Buyer. DIT Tools may make part deliveries. No partial delivery shall affect Buyer’s obligation to pay for any other part of the order.

The acceptance of the Goods at the delivery point shall be deemed to be a confirmation of the condition of the Goods and of your acceptance of the Goods at such condition. Any alleged discrepancy in delivery must be notified to DIT Tools in writing within 72 hours of receipt of the goods. If Buyer fails to bring any such discrepancy to the attention of DIT Tools in writing within such period, Buyer’s rights in respect thereof shall be deemed to have been waived.
8.1 Value Added Tax is charged on sales at the prevailing rate on the value of the invoice. VAT will not be charged to VAT registered non-UK EU companies who provide their VAT registration number at the point of sale.
8.2 DIT Tools reserve the right to make limited goods such as used goods or special orders available to other Buyers when the goods have originally been allocated to a finance application that has been on referral for more than 7 days. If a finance application goes on referral it is because the finance company requires more information from the Buyer and it is the Buyers responsibility to ensure that it is resolved quickly.
The risk of loss or damage to the goods shall pass to Buyer upon delivery of the goods at Buyer’s authorised trading premises or designated delivery address specified in the order by Buyer or to a carrier on Buyer’s behalf (whichever is sooner) whereupon Buyer shall be responsible for obtaining and paying for appropriate insurance. Buyer accepts that in signing for/accepting delivery of goods from DIT Tools that they have checked that all items ordered are present and correct. DIT Tools shall have no liability for presence and/or condition of goods once Buyer (or Buyer’s representative) has received/signed for delivery. In instances where deliveries are made to specified ‘safe places’ or ‘nominated neighbours’ specified by the buyer in their account with a delivery company/courier the buyer is deemed to have set out the way in which they are happy to have the goods delivered and the delivery is deemed to have been received/completed.

All goods supplied by DIT Tools in Buyer’s possession shall be presumed to belong to DIT Tools (unless Buyer can prove otherwise).

10.5 If Buyer fails to make any payment to DIT Tools when due; enters into bankruptcy, liquidation or receivership or a composition with its creditors; has a receiver, administrator or manager appointed over all or part of its assets; becomes insolvent; ceases to trade; or if DIT Tools has reasonable cause to believe that any of these events is likely to occur, DIT Tools shall have the right, without prejudice to any other remedies:
