The following general terms and conditions of business apply between the parties unless otherwise stated in writing.
2. Offer and deadline for acceptance
Verbal and written offers from Standesign A/S must be accepted no later than 14 days after the date of issuing the offer. Accordingly, Standesign A/S is not bound by offers where acceptance reaches Standesign A/S after expiry of the deadline for acceptance.
Standesign A/S provides exhibition stands designed as specified in the agreement between the parties and may also prepare marketing materials insofar as this is specified in the agreement between the parties. Standesign A/S is entitled to engage external suppliers to render services, to the extent necessary. Services not specified in the parties’ written agreement are to be settled by invoice.
The stand is delivered/transferred to the buyer at the start of the exhibition in question. The buyer is responsible for arranging any insurance cover for damage to the buyer’s own goods after delivery. See clause 12 Exhibition-specific information.
As per the offer and otherwise as invoiced. Standesign A/S reserves the right to make changes where there are justified grounds or by prior notification. All prices exclude technical orders, shipping and VAT.
6. Payment terms.
Payment is due net no later than 14 days from invoice date. Interest accrues on late payment at the rate of 1.5% per month commenced from the due date. For the sale of exhibition stands and attendance at exhibitions, Standesign A/S will invoice 50% at the time of ordering and 50% at the end of the exhibition – unless otherwise agreed.

8. Limitation of liability
Any claims for damages against Standesign A/S cannot under any circumstances exceed the amount invoiced excluding VAT in respect of the service purchased – except for any statutory product liability.
Standesign A/S cannot be held liable for defective deliveries due to force majeure, for example in the case of: circumstances beyond the parties’ control, such as war, fire, natural disaster, labour conflicts, general shortage of materials, import/export prohibitions, lack of transport, civil unrest or delays/errors in deliveries from external suppliers, introduction of legal or currency restrictions or such like.
Standesign A/S cannot be held liable for consequential losses or any other indirect damage or losses, including loss of profit, loss of time or other financial consequential losses.

9. Defects and deficiencies
Any defects or deficiencies must be cited by the customer immediately upon discovery so that Standesign A/S has the opportunity to attempt to remedy them. If it emerges that a defect is due to lack of information on the part of the customer, the associated costs will be invoiced.
The buyer is responsible for undertaking a thorough review of the stand and material no later than at the time of receipt. Any complaints about the goods delivered must be made
immediately. Specially procured goods and prepared workpieces will not be accepted as returns. Agreement may be reached regarding the return of standard goods that do not meet the requirements of the customer’s written order.
