General Terms and Conditions of Sale

Definitions

In these Terms and Conditions of Sale (the “Terms”), "Seller" means OMICX; "Buyer" means the institution, company or corporation by whom the order is given.

These Terms comprise the agreement between the Seller and the Buyer for the purchase of the access to the OMICX platform for the duration set out in the purchaser order accepted by OMICX or in the quote issued by OMICX. When accompanying a quote submitted by the Seller to the Buyer, the Terms constitute an integral part of the commercial sales offer expressed by such quote.
Except for any formal written offer duly signed by the Seller, the Terms take precedence over any verbal or written communication by the Seller or by the Buyer, regardless of when or how such verbal or written communication took place, and to the exclusion of any other contracts, general terms of purchase or written or verbal agreements.

These Terms may be changed by OMICX from time to time, however changes detrimental to the Buyer may only be changed at the expiry of the Buyer’s subscription for access to the services. All other provisions may be changed immediately upon notice. Continued use of the services by the Buyer constitutes acceptance of the change, including any increases in price.

Purchase orders

All orders must be in writing and are accepted subject to these Terms. A valid Purchase Order must mention the service reference, as well as the agreed sale price as per Article 3 below and payment terms as per Article 6 below for the order. All sales are final once accepted by OMICX. A direct payment on the quote is accepted as a purchase order.

Except as agreed otherwise in writing, by submitting a Purchase Order to the Seller, the Buyer acknowledges that they have read and understood, agree to, and will abide by all the terms and conditions of the related quote and of these Terms.

Purchases and orders shall be governed by the following documents (in a decreasing priority order): quote issued by OMICX and the present Terms.

Except as agreed to explicitly in writing by the Seller, all quoted prices are net prices exclusive of any applicable taxes, including national and local sales, use, excise or value added taxes, withholding taxes or similar charges imposed by any governmental entity. The Buyer shall pay all such taxes, expenses or charges, including bank charges without reduction in the purchase price charged by OMICX.
