DISPUTES BETWEEN SUPPLIER AND PURCHASER
In the event of disputes arising from the contract concluded through the Platform between Supplier and Purchaser the conditions described below apply.
BSAMPLY will not be in any way responsible for handling any disputes between the Parties. In the event that one of the Parties reports a problem related to the goods or requests the return of the goods, the Conditions of sale in the last order confirmation accepted by both parties are valid: the Conditions of sale present in the Order Confirmation govern the methods for the management of Disputes between the Parties. It is the responsibility of the Parties to enter, modify and accept jointly the Conditions of Sale present in the the Order Confirmation.
Once a dispute is initiated by the Parties, the Supplier, at the request of the Counterparty, but in any case at its sole discretion, can block the issuance of the invoices by BSAMPLY to the Purchaser. The Supplier can block the issue of invoices directly through the Platform.
In the event that the Purchaser opens a Dispute and the Supplier has not blocked the issuance of the invoices, BSAMPLY will continue to send the unpaid invoices to the Purchaser, according to the periodicity of payments provided in the last Order Confirmation accepted by the Parties.
Once the Parties reach an agreement following the opening of a Dispute, they must both accept the updated Order Confirmation (if necessary) with the new Conditions of Sale established by the Parties.
Any kind of agreement reached by the Parties following the opening of a Dispute, will not affect in any way the Commissions already held by BSAMPLY. Commissions already held by BSAMPLY are final and non-repayable.
21. REFUND POLICY
The Conditions of sale present in the Order Confirmation govern the terms of Return between the Parties. It is the responsibility of the Parties to enter, modify and accept jointly the Conditions of Sale governing the return conditions within the Order Confirmation.
BSAMPLY will not be in any way responsible for handling any disputes between the Parties. In the event that one of the Parties reports a problem related to the goods and opens a dispute, the Conditions of sale will be present in the last order confirmation accepted by both parties.
In the Order Confirmation, the Items relating to the return modalities will be filled, such as:
- the Days available from the delivery of the goods to report a problem related to the goods received and open a Dispute,
- the Court of jurisdiction in case of dispute,
- the possibility or not to grant, in any case, the Return of Temporary stock and Reuse stock.
Unless otherwise specified by the Parties in the Order Confirmation, the returned items must comply with the following criteria:
- In order to be able to report a problem related to the goods and therefore open a dispute it is necessary that there is one or more of the following defects, together with what otherwise specified by the Supplier in the Order Confirmation:
- the Product has not been received,
- the Product does not comply with the specifications provided by the Supplier on the Order Confirmation. By way of example, but not exhaustive, the Product has been delivered in quantities other than those established in the Order Confirmation and exceeds the tolerance margin set forth in the Order Confirmation or has a color or colors that do not conform to the Product’s specifications;
- the Product has not been received in the time and in the manner established between the Parties in the Order Confirmation;
- the Product presents serious damages that have not been communicated by the Supplier in the Order Confirmation, or presents damages or defects in percentage quantities higher than those indicated in the Order Confirmation, or again, presents damages or defects in quantities exceeding the margin of tolerance provided in the Order Confirmation.
- The Products must be returned in the same condition in which they were received. Returns that do not meet these standards will not be accepted.
- You will not report a problem related to the goods and then open a dispute for the following Products:
- Large Sample
- Color Card
- Temporary Stock (unless expressly specified in the Order Confirmation by the Supplier).
- Reuse Stock (unless expressly specified in the Order Confirmation by the Supplier).
- The Supplier will not accept return goods upon their authorization of the Return Request.
Except for some types of products, unless otherwise specified by the Parties in the Order Confirmation, the Purchaser may report a problem related to the goods and then open a dispute at any time before the delivery of the order and up to a maximum of following days, the amount of which is established by the Parties in the Order Confirmation.
It is our goal that every item arrives in excellent condition and we want the Buyer to always be enthusiastic about his purchase. If you receive a Product in an incorrect or damaged condition or if it does not correspond to the Product description on the Site or to the specifications established in the Order Confirmation, please notify the Supplier as soon as possible and proceed with the request for return through the Platform opening a dispute.
22. SHIPPING POLICY
The parties will establish in the Order Confirmation which of the two will have the task of organizing the shipment of goods, and then to instruct the company of logistics services. It is up to the Party that has taken over the organization of the delivery to insure, or in any case assume responsibility for the Products for the full replacement value against all risks until the delivery of the Products to the Purchaser.
The Party that arranges the shipment of the goods will be solely responsible to organize the Delivery of Products and will make every commercially reasonable effort to deliver the Products within five (5) days of the promised delivery date. In the event that the Party can not deliver the Products by that date, it will inform the other in writing of the delay.
The Parties shall establish in the Order Confirmation all the details and timescales concerning the shipment of the Products in order to prevent disputes arising from misunderstandings. For example, the Parties in the Order Confirmation can determine which of the two will be responsible for shipping and customs costs. In the event that the Supplier will charge the Purchasers for shipping costs or other expenses related to the management or delivery of the Products, the Supplier will clearly indicate the same on the Platform.
BSAMPLY will not be liable in any way for everything related to the shipment of the Products, such as any delays, losses or missed shipments or damage to the Products for any reason, including those caused during shipping.
23. ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS
We shall not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation.
These Terms are personal to You, and are not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by You except with our prior written consent. We may assign, transfer or delegate any of our rights and obligations hereunder without consent.
You and BSAMPLY are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of these Terms and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect.
Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all notices under these Terms will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or e-mail; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service. Electronic notices should be sent to Info@bsamply.com
Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms. Waiver of compliance in any particular instance does not mean that we will waive compliance in the future. In order for any waiver of compliance with these Terms to be binding, we must provide You with written notice of such waiver through one of our authorized representatives.
The section and paragraph headings in these Terms are for convenience only and shall not affect their interpretation.
