b. These Terms shall apply unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing between the Customer and RAMCON.

The information provided by RAMCON before or after the conclusion of the agreement, remain the property of RAMCON and may not be disclosed without written agreement or otherwise misused.
b. The conclusion of an agreement becomes effective when both parties agree and have accepted the same content of the agreement in writing.
c. Until the Customer’s acceptance of the offered products/services is received by RAMCON, RAMCON is entitled to enter into an agreement with a third party, which might cause the offer to lapse. RAMCON shall upon acceptance of the offer from a third party without undue delay notify the Customer in writing that the offer lapses.
d. The Customer’s placing of an order requires registration as a Customer in RAMCON’s CRM as well as order handling system.
I) When creating a RAMCON Customer registration, RAMCON is also allowed to send the Customer relevant information on activities and offers that can benefit the Customer. This is done as electronic marketing sent to the e-mail address specified in RAMCON’s CRM system. The Customer may at any time unsubscribe from marketing sent from RAMCON on either RAMCON’s website, e-news or by direct contact to RAMCON’s Customer Support: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, see our description of RAMCON’s GDPR policy here.
II) Any supply of products/services, price information, etc. on RAMCON’s website as well as in sales material, catalogs etc. is solely to be considered as an invitation to tender and is therefore not binding for Ramcon. III) Final agreement between the Customer and RAMCON is only considered to be concluded when RAMCON, after receiving the Customer’s order on its server, sends a written order confirmation by e-mail to the Customer with the following information: order no., Customer name and address, payment terms, delivery address and an overview of the ordered products/services. IV) The Customer must review the order confirmation immediately after receipt and without any delay make a complaint if needed. V) By default, the Payment Terms are net 30 days from invoice date unless otherwise agreed in writing.
3. DELIVERY AND DELIVERY TIME

Responsibility and risk transfers to the Customer at the same time unless otherwise agreed in writing.
b. The delivery time depends on the size and nature of the order and what is otherwise agreed between the Customer and RAMCON. The delivery date stated by RAMCON is approximate and thus not binding for RAMCON, unless explicitly agreed on a fixed delivery time for the whole order or parts thereof.
c. If delivery is delayed due to RAMCON being in a situation as specified in Item 11.a, the delivery time is deferred by the time the situation lasts. This applies regardless of whether the reason for the delay occurs before or after the agreed delivery time.

e. If the agreement with the Customer includes several products/services and delays or deficiencies occurs for part of delivery, the Customer is obliged to pay for the products/services delivered in a timely manner and/or without defects. If the Customer has the right to cancel the agreement under these Terms, this cancellation only applies to the delayed or defective part of the delivery, unless otherwise agreed in writing.

The Customer is also obliged to keep the products insured against fire, theft and water damage to the product’s full value.

If the packaging shows visible damage, the Customer must immediately receive in writing the conditions on the consignment note (CMR) and make a written claim in accordance with the delivery terms. Liability will be fulfilled in accordance with the terms of delivery. In case of invisible transport damage, the Customer has 7 working days to claim against the freight forwarder, insurance company and RAMCON. RAMCON does not accept complaints of transport damage and lost shipments if the buyer has entered into an agreement/power of attorney with a third party (freight forwarder) that the shipment can be placed at the destination without recipient receipt. In this case, claims against RAMCON lapses.
b. In the event of defects, the Customer must immediately notify RAMCON without undue delay. At RAMCONS’s choice, deficiencies in the sale will be remedied in accordance with the Danish Purchase law and contractual agreements with RAMCON. If not notified in a timely manner, the right to claim deficiencies lapses.
c. The complaint period is limited to 12 months from delivery. Thus, after the expiry of the complaint period, the Customer cannot claim defects. For third-party products, the time limit for complaints is as stated in the subcontractor’s applicable complaint regulations. Replacement or repair does not result in a new 12-month warranty period.

RAMCON is not responsible for faults and defects caused by changes made by the Customer, repair performed by anyone other than RAMCON or RAMCON’s service partners, software related errors, data loss and lack of backup including in connection with repair, remedy and service etc., improper installation, treatment, water damage, fire, unstable power supply, incorrect mains connection or consequential failure due to the use of other connected equipment.
e. No further warranty is provided by RAMCON unless expressly agreed in writing. Warranty and service obligations, in addition to what may be expressly and in writing agreed with RAMCON, are not the responsibility of RAMCON, but the manufacturer and his service provider, if any.
9. LIABILITY AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
a. RAMCON is not liable in the event of delay or defects on the products/services. Thus, RAMCON disclaims any responsibility for consequential loss and/or indirect loss, including loss of operations, loss of profit, loss of earnings, loss of data and/or other indirect losses as well as costs associated with re-establishment/updating, etc. on the occasion of shortcomings on the sold products/services.
