This following document sets forth the Terms and Conditions for the Helios Power Solutions website:
Helios Power Solutions is committed to providing you with the best possible customer service experience.
The term “the Company” refers to Helios Power Solutions Limited and its associates and assigned. The term “the Purchaser” refers to the person, firm, company or entity with whom the Company enters into a contract to sell to.
We agree to adhere to strictly paying all amounts due without deduction on the 20th of the month following date of delivery. No payment shall be withheld, reduced or deferred on account of any claim, counterclaim, set off or otherwise.
We acknowledge that failure to pay any account by due date shall be a breach of trading terms and the Company may in respect of such account without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have charge penalty interest thereon (being 2% over the rate charged by the Company’s bank on its current account overdraft facilities) from time to time until receipt of payment in full. Interest will be charged from the date on which payment was due and shall continue to accrue after (as well as before) judgement and after termination of this contract.
We shall pay or reimburse all costs and/or expenses incurred by the Company to recover any overdue amount.
For custom designs we may ask you to provide full payment before initiating the project.
In the event the Company is forced to seek payment of unpaid amounts through taking legal proceedings against the Purchaser, all costs associated therewith shall be borne by the Purchaser including the Company’s solicitor’s costs (as between solicitor and Company).
The risk in the goods supplied by the Company to the Purchaser shall pass to the Purchaser when such goods are delivered to the Purchaser or into the custody on the Purchaser’s behalf but the ownership in such goods shall not pass to the Purchaser until the Purchaser has discharged all outstanding indebtedness to the Company whatsoever. In the regard the Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that until such payment is made:
(a) All goods supplied and not incorporated in a manufacturing process by or on behalf of the Purchaser shall be held by the Purchaser in a fiduciary capacity as bailee to be sold by it as agent for and on behalf of the Company.
(b) Where goods supplied are incorporated in a manufacturing process by or on behalf of the Purchaser thereby becoming constituent parts of any manufacturing item (whether identifiable or not) the property in such items shall be the Company’s notwithstanding the incorporation of other constituent parts in the manufacturing process and the items shall be held by the Purchaser in a fiduciary capacity as bailee to be sold by it as agent for and behalf of the Company.
(c) If required by the Company to do so, the Purchaser shall store the goods supplied or the manufactured item as the case may be in such a way that it is clear they are the property of the Company.
(d) The Purchaser hereby irrevocably gives the Company, its agents and servants, leave and licence, without the necessity of giving any notice, to enter onto and into any premises occupied by the Purchaser and to remove any of the goods supplied or manufactured items of which they are constituents without in any way being liable to the Purchaser or any third party. And if the goods supplied are wholly or partially attached to or incorporated with any other items, the Company may where practical unscrew, disconnect, sever or otherwise do what is necessary to remove the goods supplied.
(e) If the goods supplied or any manufactured items as the case may be are sold by the Purchaser prior to payment being made in full as aforesaid, the proceeds of such sale shall be the property of the Company and be held for its account.
(f) These provisions are designed to protect the Company in the event of the insolvency and/or non payment of the Purchaser.
(g) Nothing in this clause shall be construed as permitting the Purchaser to return the goods or any part of them because they are surplus to requirements or for whatsoever other reason.
(h) Special orders, including product built to order are not refundable.
Any delivery or completion date or times are estimates only and we shall not be held liable for any consequence whatsoever for any delay to such times. Where applicable delivery will be made in accordance with a written delivery schedule mutually agreed with you at the time of placing the order. Unless amendments to the delivery schedule are given by you in suffcient time to alter the production programme and such amendments have been agreed by us in writing, we reserve the right to continue to deliver according to schedule. If you are unable to accept deliveries on site we further reserve the right to deliver to your store. In such event, delivery to store will be deemed delivery on site and payment will be due accordingly.
All charges relating to storage, insurance and subsequent delivery to the site will be directly to your account. Where prices have been quoted “FIS”, delivery is to ground floor level. In the event of any happening in consequence of which we cannot effect delivery by the agreed time, we shall be entitled to suspend delivery or extend the delivery time of the goods for the period during which such cause of delay operates and, in the event of such suspension of extension, we shall not be liable for any damages whatsoever.
We reserve the right to refuse to deliver any goods under this contract if you have any monies outstanding beyond the date due for payment on any account with us.
