Terms & Conditions

These conditions shall apply to all contracts entered into by Insight Automation Limited for sale of goods and shall extend to goods supplied in substitution or in addition to the contract goods.

Payment

The transaction currency is Sterling unless other currency has been agreed between the seller and buyer.
Customers to whom credit facilities have been granted must settle Accounts within 30 days net from invoice date, unless otherwise specified by the seller.
There will be a charge of £10 made on each occasion for any cheque rendered in payment to be re-presented or is initially refused.
The seller may charge interest on any overdue account at Barclays Bank Plc base rate plus 3% from the due date for payment until the date of payment.
All queries must be registered at Insight within 14 days from the date of invoice. If at any time an invoice is in query, it will not entitle the customer to withhold payment for any other invoices.
Default on your account may occur if you fail to settle your account on time. This can have a negative impact on your
creditworthiness. We currently share our payment experiences with other Creditsafe users.

Delivery

The buyer must examine the goods on receipt of delivery before signing any consignment note and failure to do so by the buyer having given a clear unqualified signature for them will disentitle the buyer from any claim for damage to goods in transit.
Every endeavour will be made by the company to adhere to the delivery dates quoted, but such dates are only estimated and are not guaranteed, neither shall they be a term of condition between the buyer and the company.
In all cases of delivery made by transport other than the sellers, carriage and packing charges are made to the customers cost.
The buyer shall be responsible for arranging insurance for goods collected by their own carriers. This rule applies for deliveries made to third parties on the request of the buyer.

Insight Automation recommend that all installation locations should be surveyed and risk assessed on their individual merits, and all factors regarding Health & Safety issues be duly considered, prior to installation.

Additionally and at all times, quotations, information, guidance or suggestions given by Insight Automation are offered in good faith, but we would recommend that at all times relevant risk assessment is undertaken, as above, to ensure that any installation of automation equipment and accessories meets the requirements of all relevant industry standards and recommendations, including in particular BS 7036.

Customers should satisfy themselves that the purchase of materials from Insight Automation are suitable and adequate for the project being undertaken, and meet the requirements of both their customer and comply with recommended industry accepted standards.

In as much that we have no control over the final use to which goods supplied by Insight Automation are put, we therefore are unable to warrant that the goods will be suitable for any particular purpose.

Because of time and logistical restraints, Insight Automation are unable to offer an on-site support service, the service of technical support by telephone is generally available within normal business trading hours. Where customers require assistance with physical installations, Insight Automation are generally able to recommend competent Ditec automation engineers, Insight Automation will act in the capacity of introducer only in this respect, and any arrangements made between customer and introduced engineer will be outside the responsibility of Insight Automation.

Supply of Materials & Risk Assessment

The seller will pass guarantees as extended by the manufacturer or manufacturer’s agent to the buyer. The seller will not be responsible for any guarantee in excess of these. Technical information on performance is supplied in good faith but the onus falls fully on the buyer to determine that the equipment is usable for the application in question and will work in conjunction with existing equipment.

Limitation of Comany's Liability

Any contract entered into by the seller shall be governed and constructed under English Law and the buyer shall submit to the jurisdiction of the English Court.

Jurisdiction

Any contract entered into by the seller shall be governed and constructed under English Law and the buyer shall submit to the jurisdiction of the English Court.

Credit Facility Limitation

Where the situation arises that the value of an order exceeds the funding limit of an account, alternative methods of payment for the excess amount will be requested. Should Insight ever have to take legal actions against the buyer, the status of the account changes to proforma and the full account balance including any interest becomes overdue.

Disclaimer

In as much as we have no control over the final use to which goods supplied by ourselves are put, we therefore do not warrant that the goods will be suitable for any particular purpose.
