- Binding Documentation
These Terms and Conditions of Sale (“GTCS”) govern the sale of any Product by Navico to the Customer. They form an integral part of and apply to all quotations and offers made by Navico as well as all acceptances, acknowledgements and confirmations by Navico of any orders by Customer, unless and to the extent that Navico explicitly agrees otherwise in writing. Customer’s General terms and conditions of purchase, or the like, as well as any other set of commercial terms issued by Customer either before or after issuance of any document by Navico setting forth or referring to these GTCS are hereby explicitly rejected. Any such terms shall not be binding on Navico and be considered as inapplicable to the sale of Products by Navico to the Customer. Submission of an order accepted by Navico, receipt or retention by the Customer of any Product delivered by Navico, or payment by the Customer of any invoice rendered hereunder, shall be conclusively deemed acceptance of these GTCS. The Customer hereby acknowledges that it is placing orders and acquiring Products from Navico as an Authorised Dealer, Authorised Distributor, Authorised Reseller or Boat Builder as the case may be and that it shall comply with the relevant related obligations. By placing an order, the Customer has acknowledged his relevant duties and obligations, as further described under the Navico Master Program Book and the relevant template of Authorised Distributor, Authorised Reseller, Authorised Dealer or Boat-Builder Agreement applicable to the Customer’s Territory and made available to the Customer on the Navico Customer Portal (“Contractual Documentation”).
Until Navico has notified the Customer in writing (via email or through its Customer Portal) of its acceptance of an order, or the parties enter into a written agreement related to the supply of the Products, Navico may, at its own discretion and without incurring any liability, revise or withdraw any quotation provided to the Customer.
In the event that Navico receives one (1) or more orders (or similar or related documents) from the Customer which contain(s) one or more provisions which are inconsistent with or in addition to any or all provisions of these GTCS: (a) each such order (or document) will be conclusively deemed to be governed by these Terms; (b) each such inconsistent or additional provision will be deemed stricken; and (c) no order submitted by the Customer will be deemed to be governed by any provision(s) other than that or those contained in these GTCS and the documents it refers to, when applicable, unless and until a written supplement is duly executed by both of the parties which adopts such provision(s).
At all times, Navico shall have the right to: (a) accept, reject or, if already accepted by Navico, cancel any one or more orders from Customer for any reason or no reason; (b) allocate any or all items of the Products in such manner as Navico deems advisable; and (c) in the event that Navico should determine that one or more special credit restrictions (as defined by Navico) apply, impose such payment terms as Navico deems appropriate prior to doing either or both of the following: (i) accepting any or all new orders from the Customer or (ii) filling or completing any or all pending orders (even if accepted) from the Customer.
- Price and Payment Terms
The pricing for Products and purchases made under these GTCS shall be set forth in the Navico Customer Portal and may be modified by Navico from time to time without prior notice to Customer. Such prices do not include any taxes, duties or similar levies, now or hereafter enacted, applicable to the Products or any other expenses unless otherwise agreed in writing between Customer and Navico. Navico will add taxes, duties and similar levies to the sales price where Navico is required or enabled by law to pay or collect them and these will be paid by Customer together with the price.
Navico shall invoice Customer for the Products and any other charges incurred by Navico for which Customer is responsible upon the delivery at, or shipping from Navico’s facility whichever occurs first.
Net payment of Navico’s invoices is due within thirty (30) days of date of invoice unless Navico and Customer agreed otherwise in writing. All payments shall be made to the designated Navico Entity bank account. In addition to any other rights and remedies available to Navico under applicable law, interest will accrue on all late payments at the rate of eighteen percent (18%) per annum or the maximum statutory rate, whichever is higher and to the extent permitted by applicable law, from the due date and until payment is made in full.
Customer shall maintain a satisfactory credit relationship with Navico and pay promptly so as to keep its account current at all times. If Customer fails to timely pay its account, Navico may suspend delivery of Products for unfulfilled, partially fulfilled or additional Customer orders.
- Delivery, Packing and Shipment
Delivery shall take place on the agreed Delivery Date and at the Delivery Point mentioned on the order acceptance. Navico shall package the Products and provide shipping documents in accordance with its standard procedures.
Title in the Products shall be transferred to the Customer upon receipt, by Navico, of payment for the full purchase price, inclusive of any related interest and/or expenses. Until title in the Products has passed to Customer, Customer shall not assimilate, transfer or pledge any of the Products, or grant any right or title in the Products to any third party (including End-Users).
Customer must ensure that the Products remain identifiable as Navico’s Products. Navico shall be granted access to Customer’s facility Products purchased from Navico are stored upon Navico’s first request. In the event Customer fails to pay Navico’s invoices timely or gives Navico reasons to believe that it will not fulfil its payment obligations, Navico may request that Customer returns to Navico’s address the Products in which the title has not yet passed. Customer shall be liable for any and all costs arising from or in any way connected with such return. Risk of loss in the Products shall pass to Customer upon delivery in accordance with the applicable INCOTERM.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the applicable incoterm shall be Carriage Paid To (CPT).
Delivery dates communicated or acknowledged by Navico are approximate only, and Navico shall not be in breach of its obligations to Customer, nor be liable to Customer for any delivery made within a reasonable time before or after the communicated delivery date. Navico shall use commercially reasonable efforts to meet the delivery dates provided that Customer provides all necessary order and delivery information sufficiently prior to such delivery date.
In case Navico fails to deliver the Products by the delivery date, Customer may give Navico a written notice of failure to deliver and thirty (30) days within which to cure. If Navico fails to deliver within such thirty (30) day period, Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be to cancel the affected order, or portion of the order.
- Customer shall not Transship the Products, specifically; it shall not sell or transfer any of the Products to any person or entity for resale (except for the case of Customers acting as Authorised Distributors and selling to Authorised Resellers in the Territory). Customer shall not sell or offer for sale any Product bearing a trademark, copyright, patent, or name associated with Navico, which a Customer purchased or obtained from a source other than directly from Navico. Customer shall not obscure or alter in any fashion the serial number on any Product or its packaging.
- Liquidated Damages. For each occasion that Customer breaches the provisions of this Clause by engaging in the unauthorised sale of Products, in addition to all other remedies available to Navico under these terms and at law, Customer agrees, in country where it is legally permitted, to pay Navico, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, the greater of the following amounts: (i) the costs and fees associated with Navico’s investigation and enforcement regarding the Customer’s unauthorised sales; or (ii), depending on the jurisdiction and legally acceptable trade practices either:
- Five times (5X) the MSRP or,
- Five times (5X) the recommended selling price
of the Product(s) per unit of Product.
- Geographic Sales Boundary
- Geographic sales Boundary. Customer may only sell and advertise for sale the Products within the Territory. Navico hereby expressly prohibits the Customer from soliciting or consummating sales outside the Territory.
- Liquidated Damages. For each occasion that Customer breaches the provisions of this Clause by engaging in the unauthorised sale of Products to any person or entity outside the Territory, in addition to all other remedies available to Navico under these terms and at law, Customer agrees, in country where it is legally permitted, to pay Navico, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, the greater of the following amounts: (i) the costs and fees associated with Navico’s investigation and enforcement regarding the Customer’s unauthorised sales; or (ii), depending on the jurisdiction and legally acceptable trade practices either:
- Five times (5X) the MSRP or,
- Five times (5X) the recommended selling price
of the Product(s) per unit of Product.
The parties agree that these damages are not punitive, that Navico’s damages due to the breach of this Clause of these GTCS are difficult to quantify, and that these liquidated damages are a reasonable approximation of Navico’s damages in the event of a breach.
- Product Recall
In the event that any Product is found by Navico, the Customer, or any governmental agency or court having jurisdiction over such Product to contain a safety hazard or other defect or condition that requires or would make advisable a rework or recall of such Product, such party shall promptly communicate all relevant facts to the other party. Navico shall promptly undertake all corrective actions, including those required to meet all obligations imposed by laws, regulations, or orders, and shall file all necessary papers, corrective action programs, and other related documents required under applicable law or regulation; provided that Customer shall reasonably cooperate with and assist Navico in any such filing and corrective action, at Navico’s expense; and, provided further, that nothing in this Clause shall preclude Customer from taking such action as may be required of it under any applicable law or regulation or business purpose. Navico shall perform all necessary repairs or modifications to the Product at its sole expense. The parties recognise that it is possible that other Navico-manufactured products might contain the same safety hazard, defect, or other condition described in the preceding paragraph. Customer and Navico agree that any recall involving any Product purchased by Customer shall be treated separately and distinctly from similar results of Navico’s brand products, provided that such separate and distinct treatment is lawful and that Navico shall in no event fail to provide at least the same protection to Customer with regard to such Product as Navico provides to its other customers in connection with a recall of such Product or other Navico products. Each party shall consult the other prior to making any statements to the public or a governmental agency concerning issues relating to any product recall of a Product, except where such consultation would prevent timely notification required to be given under any such law or regulation.
In connection with the business relationship contemplated by these GTCS, each party may receive or have access to commercially valuable technical and non-technical confidential or proprietary information of the other party, including information in whatever form, relating to the business of such party that is not generally known or available to others, including new product styles and designs, trade secrets, pricing strategies, marketing, business plans, and any logins and passwords provided by Navico (the “Confidential Information”). Each party acknowledges and agrees that any Confidential Information received or obtained from the other party will be the sole and exclusive property of the other party and may not be used, disseminated or disclosed except as may be necessary to perform the obligations required under these GTCS or as may be required by law. If disclosure is required by law, the party required to disclose Confidential Information shall reasonably cooperate with the other party (at the other party’s request and expense) so that the other party may preserve the confidentiality of the Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information shall not include, and neither party will be liable for disclosure of, any information received by the receiving party if the information: (a) is or becomes generally available to or known to the public through no wrongful act of the receiving party; (b) was previously known by the receiving party through no wrongful act of the receiving party; (c) was independently developed by the receiving party without reference to the Confidential Information; or (d) was lawfully disclosed to the receiving party by a third party under no obligation of confidentiality to the other party.
- Law and Venue
These GTCS shall be deemed to have been entered into and fully performed in the Netherlands and shall be governed by and interpreted under the laws of the Netherlands without regard to conflicts of law provisions. The Customer must bring any alleged claims against Navico arising under these GTCS within one (1) year of the claim arising or any such claim shall be waived. Customer irrevocably consents to the jurisdiction and venue of the Netherlands Commercial Court and waives any rights to seek a transfer of venue for any reason or to claim that the forum is inconvenient. The parties expressly disclaim application of the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.
- Representation and Warranties
No representation, undertaking or promise shall be taken to have been given or implied from anything said or written in negotiations between the parties prior to the date of any Order except as expressly stated in writing. Customer shall not rely on on any representation, assertion, guarantee, warranty, collateral contract or other assurance, except those set out in these GTCS. The Customer and Navico hereby waive all rights or remedies, at law or in equity, arising or which may arise as a result of a party’s reliance on such representation, assertion, guarantee, warranty, collateral contract or other assurance, provided that nothing herein contained shall be construed as a restriction or limitation of said party’s right to remedies associated with the gross negligence, willful misconduct or fraud of any person or party occurring either prior or after the acceptance of any order governed by these GTCS.
Because the damages associated with any breach of these GTCS would be difficult, if not impossible to ascertain, Navico shall have the right: (a) to seek immediate injunctive relief (including but not limited to a temporary restraining order, preliminary and/or permanent injunctive relief) against Customer without having to provide notice to Customer and without the necessity of posting bond or other security and (b) to recover from the Customer in each judgment wholly or partially in favour of Navico the attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses of Navico, the court costs and damages as permitted by law, the costs of collection thereof and other relief as a court may award or order. Navico’s right to injunctive relief shall be in addition to and not in lieu of its right to obtain any other damages. Customer hereby waives its right to an injunction to allow it to continue marketing, advertising, offering for sale, and/or selling Products or to use the Licensed IP upon termination of the commercial relationship between Navico and the Customer for any reason.
- Limitation of Liability
EXCLUDING THIRD PARTY PRODUCT LIABILITY CLAIMS AND THIRD-PARTY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INDEMNIFICATION CLAIMS, NAVICO’S TOTAL LIABILITY IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCTS PAID BY CUSTOMER IN AGGREGATE DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT CAUSING THE LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT SHALL NAVICO BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, COLLATERAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY PUNITIVE OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PRODUCTION, LOSS OF PROFITS OR SAVINGS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF USE OF REVENUE, LOSS OF USE OF THE PRODUCTS, LOSS OF TIME, DAMAGE TO PROPERTY CAUSED BY THE PRODUCTS, INCONVENIENCE, AND OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL ECONOMIC LOSS EVEN IF NAVICO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THESE GTCS OR OF ANY OTHER CONTRACT, THIS PROVISION SHALL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW REGARDLESS OF FAULT. NAVICO DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH REGARD TO NAVICO PRODUCTS SOLD TO THE CUSTOMER, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Navico shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Customer from and against any and all third-party claims and liabilities, arising out of or in connection with a claim that any Product, when used within the scope intended, infringes, violates or misappropriates a valid third-party patent or copyright existing on the date of the relevant Order. Navico shall have no obligation to the Customer or to any other party with respect to any action or claim of infringement based upon or arising out of the use of any Product, or any part thereof if the Product has been used: (i) in a manner for which it was not intended; (ii) in a modified form without the express written permission of Navico; (iii) in combination with any other system, equipment or devices not contemplated by the applicable model specifications; or (iv) if the Products have been refurbished. Customer shall not be entitled to indemnification by Navico for Product infringement unless Customer: (i) gives Navico prompt written notice of any action or threat of action, the ground for such action and all prior claims relating to any actual or threatened action; (ii) acknowledges in writing that Navico will have the sole control of the defense of the action and all negotiations for its settlement or compromise and (iii) fully and completely cooperates with Navico in all reasonable respects (and at Navico’s cost and expense) in its defense of the action and all negotiations for its settlement or compromise to third parties. The foregoing indemnification shall not apply to any claim of patent or copyright infringement based upon the use of any part, component or other device furnished or supplied by Customer. If any Product, or any part thereof, supplied by Navico hereunder, becomes, or in Navico’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement of an existing patent, trademark or copyright, Customer shall permit Navico, in Navico’s sole discretion and at Navico’s sole expense (i) to procure for Customer the right to continue using and selling the Product upon terms and conditions satisfactory to Navico and the third party claimant, or (ii) to replace or modify the Product so that it becomes non-infringing.
- Force Majeure
Neither Navico nor the Customer shall be held liable or in default for failure of performance for any cause beyond their reasonable control such as, for example, acts of God, declared or undeclared war, fire, flood, interruption of transportation, embargo, insurrections, accident, explosion, governmental orders, regulations, restrictions, priorities or rationing, pandemic, any industry-wide or general strike, lockout or other labour troubles interfering with the production or transportation of the Products or interference with the supply of raw materials for production of the Products. Strikes, lock-out and other labour troubles that are only related to the specific situation of the Customer and that could have been avoided by taking reasonable steps shall be considered as excluded from the scope of Force Majeure under this Clause. If the force majeure in question prevails for a continuous period in excess of three (3) months, either party shall be entitled to give notice in writing to the other party to terminate the commercial relationship or the relevant order, specifying the termination date, which must not be less than fifteen (15) days after the date on which the notice to terminate is given. Once a notice to terminate has been validly given, the commercial relationship or the relevant order shall terminate on the termination date set out in such notice.
Without prejudice to any rights or remedies Navico may have under these GTCS or at law, Navico may immediately terminate any order or the commercial relationship at any time upon giving written notice to the Customer without any liability whatsoever, if:
- the Customer violates or breaches any of the provisions of these GTCS;
- the commencement of any voluntary or involuntary proceeding for bankruptcy, insolvency, dissolution or winding up by or against the Customer;
- the control or ownership of Buyer changes;
- Upon occurrence of a Force Majeure Event as set forth in Clause XIV.
Upon occurrence of any of the events referred to above, all payments to be made by Customer under orders submitted to Navico shall become immediately due and payable.
The following shall survive the termination of the commercial relationship or any order between Navico and the Customer: (a) Clauses VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII, XII, XVI, XVII, XVIII and XIX.
