The terms “we” and “our” are used to refer to HAIX NORTH AMERICA, INC. (“HAIX”); the terms “you” and “your” refer to the Purchaser (including a User of the site that does not purchase goods). The term “Item” is used to refer to our products or services or both provided under these Terms and Conditions. All shipments, services, sales and quotations between HAIX and Purchaser are subject to these general terms and conditions of sale. They are, therefore, valid for all business transactions between HAIX and Purchaser, even in cases where they are not expressly specified or re-agreed upon.
Purchaser’s order is binding only and immediately upon acceptance in writing (including confirmations via e-mail, fax or similar electronic communications) at the offices of HAIX in Lexington, Kentucky. We reject any terms and conditions in Purchaser’s order which are different from or additional to these terms and conditions or any changes to the order after acceptance, unless expressly approved in writing and signed by our authorized representative.
