seller”), including supplies and consumables needed by the machines usually sold by the seller.

shall be a sale agreement, notwithstanding any additional services which, as the case may be, the purchaser and the
seller may freely agree upon.

1.5. The seller shall duly inform the purchaser of these General Terms’ existence and shall have them available for
the purchaser at its facilities and in its website, www.barberan.com.
2. AGREEMENT EXECUTION
2.1. The spare part sale agreement shall be considered executed when the seller receives the written acceptance of
the seller’s quotation. The quotation shall be deemed to be accepted if the purchaser returns to the purchaser the
purchaser’s quotation sealed, signed or confirmed, preferably by e-mail or fax.
2.2. A request of information by the purchaser does not bind the seller, which shall gather information concerning
the availability of the requested spare part and may carry out a sale quotation. The quotation shall include the spare part

3.1. Upon acceptance of the quotation, the seller shall issue the relevant invoice, which it shall immediately send to
the purchaser. When the payment is evidenced by any means, it shall ship the spare part.
3.2. Shipping shall preferably be carried out by courier. When the spare part requires so, it may also be carried out
by express transportation.
3.3. Shipping shall be made to the purchaser’s address designated in the invoice or the seller’s data file, unless the
purchaser indicated a different address in writing.
3.4. Risk shall be transferred to the purchaser upon shipment.
3.5. Should the relevant spare part be one that the seller is compelled to provide without cost, being covered by
the guarantee of a machine or installation previously sold to the purchaser by the seller, the shipping of the spare part
shall also be made upon payment. When the spare part covered by the guarantee gets to the seller’s facilities, the seller
shall examine the relevance of the guarantee enforcement and, in case it is positive, shall make a refund of the amount
already paid by the purchaser.
4.1. Spare parts manufactured by the seller shall be guaranteed for a one-year term as from delivery date. For
spare parts of other manufacturers, the manufacturer’s guarantee shall apply.
4.2. The seller’s responsibility shall only be incurred for flaws arising within a correct use of the spare part and the
machine in which it is inserted. It shall not apply to any defects the cause of which is subsequent to the risk transfer,
neither to cases of incorrect use, incorrect set up by the purchaser, changes without the seller’s written consent,
inadequate repairs made by the purchaser or third parties or normal wear and tear.
4.3. Some spare parts are technologically complex and have a sophisticated operation. The purchaser accepts that,
for a correct operation, it shall be essential to follow the seller’s instructions and invest in the adequate training of its
operators. Incorrect operation or non-operation due to the purchaser’s failure to comply with such requirements may
never be attributed to the seller.

ones. The General Terms and Conditions of Sale of the seller products shall apply as long as they do not contradict these
