2.5. Any condition proposed by the Customer other than these, which was not accepted in writing and expressly by SILICIUM, shall be ineffective and not binding.
2.6. The documents issued by SILICIUM other than these Conditions, such as brochures, catalogs, quotations, technical specifications, drawings, etc., are for information purposes only and SILICIUM reserves the right to modify them at any time, without prejudice to the particular conditions agreed with its Customers.

Article 3 - Orders - Formation / modification of the contract

3.2. The Customer when placing an order must detail as specifically as possible, in addition to the number of units and place of delivery, the product ordered from SILICIUM as stated in the Catalogs, website, offers or consultations.
3.3. When placing the order, the Customer is informed of the price of the product or services ordered and the shipping and delivery costs, committing, upon acceptance of the offer, to receive the products or services purchased and to pay the agreed price, including, where appropriate, delivery costs, without prejudice to what will be said about the possibility of cancellation in the following general condition.
Article 4 - Prices
4.1 The selling price, indicated in euros, of the products offered on the SILICIUM Website shall be the price in force at the time the order is placed. The selling price of the products displayed on the Website may at any time be modified by SILICIUM being the price applied to the purchase that appears on the screen at the time of placing the Order. Unless expressly stated otherwise, the prices shown do not include shipping costs, which will be billed as a supplement to the price of the products purchased. Shipping costs will be indicated before the Buyer registers the Order. Prices shall include Value Added Tax (VAT). Any change in the applicable rate will automatically affect the price of the products sold by SILICIUM on the Website. The price does not include the Tax on Production, Services and Imports (IPSI) which, if any, will have to be paid by the Buyer upon receipt of the order. Taxes or duties for shipments outside the European Community are independent of SILICIUM.
4.2 The current price list is available to the Customer. The period of validity of offers and prices is determined by updating the current price list. The prices of the products sold are those valid on the day of receipt of the order. They are established with destination from our warehouse, are denominated in Euros and are calculated exclusive of taxes.
4.3 Handling, transport and packaging costs shall be included for any order whose net amount excluding VAT per order is equal to or greater than a certain amount (variable for each price range and appearing in the current price list) and only if the shipment is made to a single recipient and at one time. Any order below this amount is automatically increased by an amount variable for each price scale and shown in the current price list. In case of express delivery, the costs will be borne by the addressee.
4.4 Silicium has tariffs called 'reseller tariffs' which enjoy an average of 30% discount on the retail price. These rates apply to all health food stores, pharmacies, herbalists, parapharmacies and the like. This discount is provided so that the reseller in question can obtain its commercial profit on its sales to end customers. This rate is called RATE 2, being called the retail rate RATE 1. There is a special type of companies called wholesalers or 'wholesale distributors' that purchase products in larger quantities than the resellers mentioned above, usually more than 100 units per reference, in order to offer it to their reseller customers, which are exclusively physical stores facing the public, or virtual stores with web pages with or without a physical store. These customers will be offered an additional discount only and exclusively in the case that the purpose of these wholesalers is to resell the product to these stores, for the logical reason of having an additional commercial margin to cover the costs of the service they provide and at the same time be able to sell the product to the stores at the prices recommended in RATE 2. This service is summarized in buying wholesale products from manufacturers or laboratories and being able to deliver them quickly to the stores, sometimes within 24 hours or less. For this purpose, they are offered a rate with a greater discount than RATE 2, and the rate for these special customers is called RATE 3.
4.5 The concession of these tariffs shall be terminated if such wholesale distributors sell part of their products directly to the end customer. Even if they only dedicate a small part of their purchases to resale through websites or other means, direct or indirect, through their own websites or with special agreement with companies that have such websites, supplying them with products with little or no commercial margin, which create a comparative disadvantage that causes discomfort in the market and prevents the normal activity of the network because the resellers consider that they suffer the consequences of unfair competition. In this case they will lose the classification of 'CUSTOMER' with 'TARIFA 3' with which the concession of TARIFA 3 may be withdrawn and/or the supply of the product may cease without them being entitled to any compensation whatsoever. This clause, far from preventing free competition, is aimed at correctly remunerating the companies that they deserve by virtue of their commercial effort. The opposite case means great economic losses for SILICIUM preventing to allocate budget for research, development and other investments essential for the survival of the company. Also these veiled behaviors by certain companies have meant serious discomfort and reproaches to SILICIUM with the consequent loss of credibility, facts that SILICIUM can not consent.
4.6 SILICIUM may at any time modify its conditions and rates without notice. Any modification shall not affect orders already accepted or contracts in force.
