Further, we may charge you interest from the due date to the date of payment at the rate of 1 1⁄2 % per month. This shall be in addition to, and not in limitation of, any other rights or remedies to which we are or may be entitled at law or in equity.
3.5 Title to Goods Title to goods delivered shall remain vested in us and shall not pass to you until the goods have been paid for in full (even though they have been delivered and risk has passed to you). If you fail to pay any invoice within fourteen calendar days of the due date of payment, we may retake the goods covered by the invoice. You must insure all goods delivered to their full replacement value until title to the goods has passed to you.

4. Terms of Delivery and Late Delivery

4.1 Terms of Delivery Unless expressly stated otherwise in our order confirmation, all prices and terms of delivery of goods are based on the delivery condition “Ex Works”, meaning that we fulfill our obligation to deliver after we have made the goods available at our premises” – EXW (Incoterms 2000). The risk of loss of or damage to goods shall pass to you in accordance with the agreed delivery term.
WMB can work with several different incoterms (FOB, CIF, EXW, etc.). The preferred shipping method should always be mentioned and discussed prior to any quotations are requested.
4.2 Late Delivery The delivery dates of goods shall be those set forth in our order confirmation. If we fail to deliver goods within seven calendar days of the agreed delivery date, you may terminate the applicable purchase order in whole or in part (as to those goods affected by the delay) by providing written notice of termination to us within seven calendar days of the expiration of the grace period. Further, you may claim damages for any loss suffered as a result of the delay subject to the limitation of liability below. These shall be your exclusive remedies for late delivery.
4.3 Delivery in installments We reserve the right to make delivery in installments.

6. Warranty

6.1 Conform We warrant that upon delivery and for a period of twenty-four months from the date of delivery goods purchased hereunder will conform in all material respects to the applicable manufacturer’s specifications for such goods and will be free from material defects in workmanship, material and design under normal use. The warranty does not cover damage resulting from misuse, negligent handling, lack of reasonable maintenance and care, accident or abuse by anyone other than us.
6.2 Liability With respect to goods which do not conform to the warranty our liability is limited, at our election, to (i) refund of the purchase price for such goods less a reasonable amount for usage, (ii) repair of such goods, or (iii) replacement of such goods; provided, however, that such goods must be returned to us, along with acceptable evidence of purchase, within fourteen calendar days after you discovered the lack of conformity or ought to have discovered it.
6.2 Warranty We make no other warranty, express or implied, with respect to goods delivered hereunder, and the warranty constitutes our sole obligation in respect of any lack of conformity of goods delivered hereunder (except title). In particular, we make no warranty with respect to the merchantability of goods delivered or their suitability or fitness for any particular purpose.

8. Intellectual Property Rights Infringement

If any goods delivered hereunder are held to infringe a third party’s patent, utility model, design, trademark or other intellectual property right and you are enjoined from using same, we will, at our option and expense, (i) procure for you the right to continue using the goods; (b) replace the goods with non-infringing substitutes provided that such substitutes do not entail a material diminution in performance or function; (c) modify the goods to make them non-infringing; or (d) refund the purchase price of the goods less a resonable amount for usage. The foregoing states our sole liability for intellectual property rights infringement.

9. Limitation of Liability

The obligations and rights of the party so excused shall be extended on a day-to-day basis for the time period equal to the period of such excusable interruption. When such events have abated, the parties’ respective obligations shall resume. In the event the interruption of the excused party’s obligations continues for a period in excess of thirty calendar days, either party shall have the right to terminate the applicable contract(s) of sale, without liability, upon thirty calendar days’ prior written notice to the other party.

11. Miscellaneous

11.1 United Nations Convention The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to these GTCS or to any contracts of sale entered into between us.
11.2 Waiver of Provision No waiver of any provision of these GTCS shall constitute a waiver of any other provision(s) or of the same provision on another occasion.

11.3 Illegal, Invalid or Unenforceable Should any provision of these GTCS be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, such provision may be modified by such court in compliance with the law giving effect to the intent of the parties and enforced as modified. All other terms and conditions of these GTCS shall remain in full force and effect and shall be construed in accordance with the modified provision.
11.4 Dutch Law These GTCS and all contracts of sale entered into between us shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of The Netherlands without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law provisions. Any suits, actions or proceedings that may be instituted by either of us against the other shall be instituted exclusively before the competent courts of The Netherlands, however, without prejudice to our right to bring suits, actions or proceedings in any other court which would have jurisdiction if this provision had not been incorporated into these GTCS.

12. Rules On Use of Resources

Thanks to our in-house developments and design resources we manage to provide our industry-partners with innovative products and technical and aesthetical solutions never seen before. This is the mindset that will help us to maintain our place amongst the best sourcing and manufacturing organizations globally. Reaching this goal, however, requires the constant allocation of significant resources, both human and technical. Maintaining a balanced structure, while continuing to excel at addressing the demands of our customers, calls for the implementation of certain rules based on which we have built the following Rules on Use of Resources.

12.1 Minimum Order Quantities
All productions realized in China require minimum order quantities of 1000 pieces per style. This quantity can be divided in up to 5 different sizes and up to two different colors. Depending on minimum order quantities of the used materials we are open to manufacture orders below 1000 pieces per style with an up-charge. All productions realized in Europe and Northern Africa require minimum order quantities of 150 pieces per style. This quantity can be divided in up to 5 different sizes.
12.2 Raw Materials and Trims
When we undergo sourcing operations, we systematically inform our customers about the conditions offered by the suppliers: production minimums and production lead-times. In some situations the minimum order quantities requested by the suppliers may exceed the quantities required for a given order. In this case, the customer is responsible for the payment of the excess material. This excess material will automatically be invoiced to the customer. On a case-by-case will be discussed whether the customer wants to directly become the owner of the excess fabric, if we just add an up-charge and take care of the excess fabric, and/or if we provide warehousing services and for what fee.
12.3 Tolerances Required
Quantities shipped: we require a deviation tolerance of +/- 5%, in relation to ordered quantities.
Second-choice Items: we require a deviation tolerance of +/- 5%, in relation to ordered quantities.
12.4 Lead-Times
For traditional (sewn) garments we can offer production lead-times of 4 to 7 weeks. IMPORTANT: These lead-times do not take into consideration previous lead-times for raw materials and/or garment development and approval. Please note that all these processes happen at an earlier stage, before production.
The lead-times provided above are standard lead-times, after all necessary materials are in-house and approved and all styles have received the final approval by the customer. We require, on average, 8 to 10 working days for prototypes (after all necessary materials are in-house). This lead-time can be reduced or extended according to the current occupation of our production lines and should always be confirmed with our development team.
