GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS of DOBOT TEAM
1. General and Applicability
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Conditions”) comprise the basis on which DOBOT sells its products (“Products”) and shall form an integral part of any contractual relationship between DOBOT and its counterparty as regards the sale or delivery of Products. In these Conditions, any counterparty shall be referred to as “Buyer”. Each of DOBOT and Buyer may also be referred to as “Party” and together as “Parties”. “Agreement” means the relevant Confirmation and these Conditions. “Confirmation” means the confirmation in writing by DOBOT to Buyer in relation to Buyer's order. Any order requires the issue of a duly signed Confirmation by DOBOT to Buyer in order to constitute an Agreement binding upon DOBOT.
No other general terms and conditions shall be applicable, supplement or set aside (any part of) these Conditions unless expressly agreed to by DOBOT in writing. Reference by Buyer to any other general terms and conditions is hereby explicitly rejected.
In case of any inconsistency between the English version of these Conditions and a version in any other language, the English version shall prevail.
No right or claim of Buyer may be assigned to an affiliate of Buyer or a third party without prior approval of DOBOT.
2. Offers, Confirmation, Agreement and Security
All offers, including verbal offers or other declarations by DOBOT's (sales) representatives and/or employees, either as price lists or otherwise (“Offers”) are completely free of obligation and do not oblige DOBOT in any way to conclude a contract with Buyer.
No Agreement will be constituted until after the written Confirmation of an order within seven (7) working days after receipt of an order from the Buyer or after DOBOT has commenced to fill the order. The contents of the Confirmation shall be determinative of the contents of the Agreement.
Within seven (7) working days of the date of the order and/or the Confirmation, Buyer shall notify DOBOT in writing of any mistakes in the order form and/or the Confirmation, such as writing, printing or computing errors. DOBOT shall correct such mistakes that it considers justified within a reasonable period of time.
In the Confirmation and/or once an Agreement has been concluded, DOBOT may vary the specifications (such as colours, measurements and similar) within reasonable limits and if justified by commercial or technical reasons. In such cases, DOBOT may also decide not to deliver certain items.
Each order placed by Buyer shall amount to a new offer and result in a new and separate Agreement. However, if a court or arbitration panel should find that Buyer and DOBOT have entered into a continuing performance agreement, DOBOT may at its discretion choose to terminate all or any of a part of the agreement with three (3) months' notice, without any damages or compensation requirement.
These Conditions shall also apply to any Offers and Agreements regarding the delivery of items from stock, if such Offers and/or Agreements were made after the conclusion of a prior agreement in connection to which Buyer was already provided with a copy of these Conditions.
All Agreements are entered into on the assumption that Buyer is sufficiently creditworthy and if DOBOT has any reason to doubt such, DOBOT may require full or partial payment in advance or set other payment conditions for delivery and suspend, delay or cancel any credit delivery or any other performance of its obligations.
DOBOT may require Buyer to provide (any) security (interest) for the performance of Buyer's payment obligations. Even when such is posted DOBOT reserves the right to require additional security for payment from Buyer in the event of a change in Buyer's economic situation. DOBOT may determine the period in which such security is to exist. Failure to provide the requested security in full, in a timely fashion or at all shall constitute an attributable failure to perform (breach of contract) and shall justify DOBOT suspending the performance of any obligation under the Agreement, postponing any delivery or even to terminate the Agreement.
Buyer warrants it has secured all necessary governmental or fiscal authorization or licenses to enable it to remit all payments in the currency defined in the relevant DOBOT invoices. Buyer acknowledges and understands that any devaluation or other change in the currency of the country of Buyer's location or the Market is at the risk of Buyer.
Any electronic communication between DOBOT and Buyer shall be considered to be a “writing” and/or “in writing”, irrespective of its status under Dutch law. The electronic communication system used by DOBOT will serve as sole proof for the content and time of delivery and receipt of such electronic communication.
Delivery terms shall be set out in the Confirmation and be interpreted in accordance with the Incoterms 2010. In case no other delivery term is declared applicable in the Confirmation, delivery of the Products takes place FOB Shenzhen. In case Buyer wishes to use more places of destination and DOBOT accepts such, Buyer shall bear all additional risk and (delivery) costs. In case of conflict between the Incoterms 2010 and any terms in the Confirmation, the Confirmation shall prevail.
If partial deliveries are made, each such delivery may be charged separately.
Communicated or acknowledged delivery dates are approximate only and shall not, unless explicitly stated otherwise, be considered as final terms. DOBOT shall not be liable, nor in breach of its obligations to Buyer:
- 1. for any delivery made within a reasonable time before or after the stated delivery date. In the event of late delivery Buyer will give DOBOT written “notice of failure to deliver” and a reasonable time, which will be no less than thirty (30) days, within which DOBOT is allowed to cure the failure to deliver.
for any delivery failure due to an unforeseen discrepancy between supply and demand for any of the Products. In such an event DOBOT shall, in the interest of maintaining, its distribution network evenly supply the available Products over all channels and all orders placed.
- 2. If Buyer fails to accept delivery all costs and expenses, including but not limited to transport, duty and storage, will be at Buyer's expense. Any requests from Buyer to delay, change or cancel a confirmed order must be received by DOBOT in writing no later than fourteen (14) days before the scheduled delivery date.
Any delay in delivery of any Products shall not relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept delivery thereof. Deviations in quantity of Products delivered from that stated in DOBOT's Confirmation shall not give Buyer the right to reject the Products. Buyer shall be obligated to pay the purchase consideration specified in DOBOT's Confirmation for the quantity of Products delivered.
For online sales, delivery will be made within 1-2 working days after the receipt of payment. Since the commodities will be shipped through forwarder, the tracking number may sometimes be updated on the third working day. After we get to know the tracking number, we will update on our website and at the same time, the customer will be reminded via mail. Otherwise, customers can log onto "my account" to view the order status via "S".
4. Transfer of title
The right of property in the Products delivered shall remain vested in DOBOT until Buyer has paid in full whatever is due to DOBOT for whatever reason (“Retention of Title”). During the period that the right of property is still vested in DOBOT, Buyer shall hold the Products in trust for DOBOT. The risk of loss with respect to all Products purchased by Buyer pursuant to the Agreement and the relevant Confirmations pass to Buyer upon delivery of the Products to Buyer or such other entity as designated by Buyer. Buyer shall, at its cost, insure all Products commencing immediately when the risk of loss with respect to such Products has passed to Buyer.
During the period of Retention of Title, the Products may not be pledged, assigned nor may any other similar right be granted to a third party.
If Buyer fails to fulfil its obligations, if in the opinion of DOBOT reasonable grounds exist to suggest that Buyer shall fail to do so, or any of the events referred to under Clause 9 occur, DOBOT shall, without notice of default or court intervention, be entitled to take possession of the Products which are subject to Retention of Title or have them collected from Buyer or from third parties holding them for Buyer. Buyer shall provide any assistance necessary to effect the foregoing, under an immediate due and payable penalty of ten percent (10%) of the purchase price per occurrence and two percent (2%) per day when such has not been remedied.
In case the Retention of Title regarding the delivered Products cannot or can no longer be effected, as security for proper payment of its obligations, Buyer herewith grants a pledge to DOBOT, which DOBOT accepts, on all the Products owned by Buyer and/or any claims or rights Buyer has towards a third party holding these Products for Buyer.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Buyer shall be entitled to (re)sell the Products in the normal course of its business, including prior to its payment in full of the purchase price. The risk of loss or damage to the Products shall at all times pass to Buyer on delivery in accordance with the agreed delivery term of Clause 3.1.
Any promotional materials which DOBOT has made available to Buyer to promote its products and/or brands shall remain DOBOT's property and shall immediately be returned at DOBOT's first request. Such promotional materials may not be sold and/or transferred to third parties.
5. Purchase Price

DOBOT will add taxes, duties and similar levies to the sales price where DOBOT is required by law to pay or collect them which will thereupon be paid by Buyer.
The price for the Products is based on the cost price for the Products applicable at the time of the Offer. In case of a change in the cost price resulting from an increase in the prices of energy, raw materials or other materials necessary for the manufacture of the Products ordered by Buyer and/or an increase in freight, storage, insurance charges, wages and exchange rates occurring prior to the agreed date of delivery, DOBOT shall have the right to increase the price of the Products ordered accordingly, even if such an increase was foreseeable at the time of concluding the Agreement, by a ninety (90) days written notice to Buyer.
In the event the increase of the cost price for the Products exceeds five percent (5%), Buyer shall have the right to cancel the Agreement within three (3) days after receipt of the prior written notice of each such an increase.
If DOBOT advises on possible retail prices to be used by Buyer, such are only suggestions to Buyer, based on DOBOT's understanding of the market.
