upon between the Parties in writing and duly signed by Goudezeune.
2.2 These Conditions are translated in several languages. In case of any
inconsistencies between the different language versions, the text of the

(c) the requested date of delivery.
3.2 Goudezeune shall be under no obligation to accept or confirm an order

Goudezeune will endeavour to deliver the Products on the delivery date
requested by Buyer (as confirmed by Goudezeune), but the Parties explicitly

as a result of such change or cancellation.
4.3 All packaging, transportation, customs and insurance costs in connection

reason whatsoever which Buyer may allege excuses him from performing his
obligations under these Conditions.

from Buyer before or upon delivery of the Products.

incomplete payment of the invoice on its expiry date, Goudezeune reserves
the right to immediately take possession of the Products at issue,
irrespective of whether they already have been sold by the Buyer to a third
party or not, and irrespective of the place where they are stored.
7.2 Until title to the Products has passed to Buyer, Buyer shall:
(a) hold the Products on trust for Goudezeune;
(b) store the Products separately from all other products of Buyer or any
third party;
(c) not remove any batch number or other identification, or any notice that
the Products are Goudezeune’s property;

(d) maintain the Products in satisfactory condition; and

replacement value against all risks to the reasonable satisfaction of
Goudezeune (on request Buyer shall produce the policy of insurance
to Goudezeune).

determine whether the Products were damaged on delivery to Buyer.

reserves the right to charge Buyer for costs reasonably incurred in handling,
testing and returning non-defective Products following their rejection or
unauthorised return by Buyer.

damage is jointly caused by the Products’ defect and the victim’s fault or
Goudezeune shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform its
obligations under these Conditions or for any other loss or damage which
results, directly or indirectly, from delivery of the Products being prevented,
hindered, delayed, cancelled or made economically unprofitable due to
circumstances or events beyond its reasonable control, such as, but not
limited to, strike, lock-out, labour dispute, mechanical breakdown, flood,
storm, difficulty or increased cost in procuring labourers, materials or
transport or delay due to bad weather.
Buyer shall keep strictly confidential all Confidential Information belonging to
Goudezeune and shall impose the same obligations on its employees and
subcontractors. Buyer may disclose Confidential Information if required to do
so by law, court order, regulation or governmental authority provided (to the
extent permissible by law) it has notified Goudezeune in advance and
agreed the scope of the disclosure with Goudezeune.

12.1 Failure or delay to exercise a right or remedy does not constitute a waiver of
that right or remedy or of any other rights or remedies. No partial exercise of
a right or remedy shall prevent a further exercise of that or any other right or
12.2 If any provision of these Conditions is found to be invalid, unlawful or
unenforceable by any court or competent authority, that provision shall be
deemed not to be a part of these Conditions and it shall not affect the

Goudezeune to the Buyer, as well as concerning the validity, interpretation
and enforcement of these Conditions shall be governed by and construed in
