PAYMENT TERMS: Special terms printed on customers orders will not be recognized where they differ from our terms.
SET OFF, ETC: Buyer shall have no right of set off, offset, nor any right to withhold payment of amounts due ICS for any completed or partially completed order based on any alleged claims connected with other transactions, sales or orders.
CREDIT: Open account priviledges are extended to any firm having a satisfactory D & B rating. New accounts should submit three trade references and one bank reference with complete information. All references will be checked promptly and shipment will be made as quickly as possible. If immediate delivery is required before references can be checked, please include check or C.O.D. authorization, or you can charge the order to your Mastercard.
DELIVERIES: Delivery periods and shipping dates are given in good faith, but are not of the essence of the contract. Tools are offered subject to prior sale.
SPECIAL CUTTING TOOLS: Inquiries for non-standard catalog items are invited. Special orders manufactured to your custom specifications may not be cancelled following our acceptance of your order and are non-returnable. All orders for “specials”, i.e. non-catalogued items must be confirmed in writing. ICS reserves the right to consider any such order complete when quantity is shipped within plus or minus 10% of specified quantity.
SPECIFICATIONS: All tools are described and illustrated as accurately as possible in the ICS catalog, and are manufactured at least to the level of internationally accepted standards. Insignificant variations of tools from their stated dimensions or descriptions will not constitute a breach of contract or be a valid reason to return tools.
RETURN GOODS: Returns can only be made within 30 days of delivery and will only be accepted with a return goods authorization number and label issued by ICS. No returns will be accepted for credit without a return goods authorization number. If this number is not on outside of package, delivery will be refused. All returns, so accepted are subject to a restocking charge of 20%. If items cannot be returned to stock, no credit will be given. Discontinued items and items held for 30 days will not be accepted. Credit for returns shall exclude freight charges both ways. Freight collect returns will not be accepted.
UPS - SHORTAGE OR DAMAGE: Shipments by ICS remain the property of ICS Cutting Tools until you sign driver delivery sheet stating goods were received in good condition. If any packages are damaged, broken open or have been retaped, have driver note this on delivery record. If driver refuses to note obvious damage, refuse shipment and we will reship. Any box you suspect has been retaped should be weighed to verify that shipping weight and receiving weight are the same. Notify your local UPS office and ICS Cutting Tools immediately so we can reship tools and file claim. Keep damaged tools and container for UPS inspection or until advised to dispose.
