- Basis of Sale
2.1 AlphaLogix will sell and the Customer will purchase the hardware and/or software in accordance with any written order of the Customer which is accepted by AlphaLogix, subject in either case to these Conditions.
2.2 AlphaLogix will provide the services to the Customer that are set out in the Service Level Agreement, the order or quotation (as the case may be) between AlphaLogix and the Customer to which these terms are attached.
2.3 These Conditions govern the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions (if any) contained on or referred to in an order form or other communication from the Customer. No addition, variation or substitution of these Conditions will bind AlphaLogix or form part of any order unless agreed in writing and signed by authorised representatives of both parties.
2.4 These Conditions and the terms of any order constitute the entire understanding of the parties and supersede all prior promises, representations and undertakings.
2.5 No AlphaLogix employee or agent is authorised to make any representations concerning the subject matter of the Contract unless confirmed by AlphaLogix in writing. The Customer acknowledges that it is not relying on any such representation not so confirmed.
3.1 Any order placed with AlphaLogix will be accepted at AlphaLogix’s sole discretion and, if accepted, will only be accepted on and subject to these Conditions.
3.2 Each order so accepted constitutes a separate legally binding Contract between AlphaLogix and the Customer.
3.3 The Customer is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of any order submitted to AlphaLogix.

4.3 AlphaLogix reserves the right, by giving the Customer written notice at any time before delivery, to increase the price of hardware and/or software and/or support and/or services to reflect any increase in the cost to AlphaLogix which is due to any factor beyond AlphaLogix’s control. Where possible, AlphaLogix will provide 30 days’ notice of any price changes but the Customer acknowledges this may not always be possible where prices vary for reasons outside of AlphaLogix’s control. AlphaLogix therefore reserves the right to vary prices at short, or even no, notice. Any price changes will be notified to the Customer as soon as reasonably possible.
4.4 All prices are exclusive of VAT and any other sales taxes and delivery charges, unless otherwise stated. All delivery charges are charged as extra, irrespective of invoice value. Any overseas duties and taxes will be the responsibility of the Customer.

The Customer will provide safe and unrestricted access to the engineer making a site visit and any lost time as a result of any failure to comply with this obligation is chargeable at normal day rates. If a minimum 48 hours’ notice of cancellation is not received a cancelled site visit may also be chargeable at normal day rates.

5.9 AlphaLogix shall be entitled but not obliged at any time or times without notice to the Customer to set off any liability of the Customer (or any group company of the Customer) to AlphaLogix against any liability of AlphaLogix to the Customer (or any group company of the Customer) (in either case howsoever arising and whether any such liability is present or future liquidated or unliquidated and irrespective of the currency of its denomination) and may for such purpose convert or exchange any currency.
