TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions form an agreement between AROTEC Diagnostics Limited (“AROTEC”) and the customer (“Buyer”) with respect to the products Buyer purchases from AROTEC.
WEBSITE PRICING: Pricing listed on the www.arodia.com website is only indicative and should not be considered a final price or quoted price. Once an order is placed a confirmation email will be sent confirming both quantities and actual price.
QUOTATIONS: Quotations are valid for 30 days from date of generation. Pricing is only applicable for the quoted amount in mgs. If a change in volume is required, AROTEC reserves the right to re-issue a new quote with updated pricing.
ORDERS: Orders will be accepted by fax, mail or email. Orders may be confirmed but should be marked “CONFIRMATION ONLY”. All orders must contain a purchase order number and the name of the person placing the order. Please include product catalogue number, full product description, unit size, quantity required, billing and delivery address. Specified lot numbers are available on a first-come first-serve basis unless prior agreement with your sales agent. If no lot number is specified, AROTEC will send a product lot of their choosing. AROTEC will work to ensure that only one lot number will be sent for each product.

PRODUCT RESERVATION POLICY
VALIDATION LOTS: AROTEC can offer validation samples, at a cost, to Buyers to determine if the product is suitable for their needs. A tentative reservation timeline of 8 weeks from customer’s receipt of product, is offered while validation is undertaken. AROTEC will tentatively reserve the requested quantity of the specified lot during this validation. If no confirmation is obtained after 8 weeks, AROTEC will release the reserve and can therefore supply this lot number to other interested parties.
If a reservation is confirmed, AROTEC will remove this product from general inventory and store separately. Buyers must adhere to AROTEC Diagnostics’ reservation terms as stated in the reservation agreement document and our terms and conditions.
In extreme circumstances, some specified lots may not be available at the amount requested after the validation time period. If this occurs, AROTEC will work with the Buyer to find alternative solutions.
HELD RESERVES: AROTEC operates a held reserve option for all Buyers. Once a reserve is confirmed, the full reserved amount must be called up within 2 years from initial date of reservation. Pricing may be subject to change over the period of reservation. If the reserved amount is not called up within the 2 year time limit, AROTEC reserves the right to ship the outstanding amount of product to the customer and issue an invoice for the shipped products.
PAYMENT: Buyer shall pay for all orders strictly Net 30 days from date of invoice. A 1.5% monthly late charge on account balances over 30 days past due will be added to the invoice total from the date of shipment. Payments can be made by bank transfer (details will be provided on invoice). No deductions can be made for bank and clearance charges. AROTEC does not accept payments by cheques. In certain instances, prepayment may be required prior to shipping if AROTEC does not have an established relationship with the Buyer.
