These conditions of purchase will apply to all supplies and services performed by a supplier for ÚTILES Y MECANIZADOS SL (hereinafter UMEC SL), unless other agreements have been expressly approved.
If the general conditions of sale of the supplier contradict our General Conditions, the supplier's general conditions will only apply when UMEC SL has explicitly given its written consent. The acceptance of supplies or provisions from the supplier and even payment for them do not signify any approval of the conditions of sale of the supplier.
The agreed deadlines for supplies and services are binding. If delays are anticipated or occur, the provider must notify UMEC SL immediately in writing so that it can grant an additional period for delivery. Late deliveries, without prior acceptance of an additional period for delivery by UMEC SL, will entitle the latter, without notice, to refuse delivery, terminate the contract, or demand compensation for damages for non-compliance. Unreserved acceptance of a supply or service outside the agreed period, will not imply any type of waiver of actions to demand indemnity or compensation for damages that may arise from the delay.
The agreed prices of the supplies/services ordered, will be considered fixed. They include, unless otherwise agreed, all expenses related to supplies and services provided by the supplier.
Delivery of supplies must be made on the date, at the place and under the conditions agreed with UMEC SL.

Each delivery must be accompanied by a delivery note in which appears the order number indicated by UMEC SL and the content, ordered by type and quantity.

Damage caused by packaging defects will be borne by the supplier.
The general conditions for sending materials will be DDP in UMEC SL except express agreement of other conditions.
