TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE

In these terms and conditions:

(a) “Vendor” means ALBANY ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS LIMITED and its agents, successors and assigns.

(b) “Buyer” means the person, firm, company or entity buying the Goods from the Vendor.

(c) “Goods” means all Goods the subject matter of any contract for purchase between the Vendor and Buyer, including where the context permits a resulting product into which the Goods are so incorporated, manufactured or commingled that their identity is lost in the resulting product.

1. ORDERS

1.1 All orders made by the Buyer can only be withdrawn by the Buyer (after notice of that order has been received by the Vendor) with the Vendor's express written consent, which the Vendor may grant or withhold in its sole and absolute discretion and without having to give any reasons. All orders are subject to and are not binding until their acceptance by the Vendor and, in the case of Goods not held in stock by the Vendor, confirmation by the Vendor. Notwithstanding any arrangement granting credit to the Buyer, the Vendor reserves the right to accept or decline acceptance of any order in its absolute discretion.
