The official guarantees apply to nonconforming Products, provided they have been properly used, according to their intended purpose and in compliance with the attached technical specifications.
Master SpA guarantees high quality products and manufacture; it undertakes, during the period of guarantee, at its sole discretion, to reimburse the purchase price or to promptly repair and/or replace, free of charge, any faulty products due to the poor quality of materials or defects in manufacturing, except in cases of:

Master SpA is not required to carry out such work on the site where the fault was found.

No payment shall be due to the Buyer for the time of inactivity of plant and equipment, nor should the Buyer claim compensation or indemnity for any expenses, accidents, direct or indirect damages, including those relating to the above-mentioned repairs and replacements.
In the event of application of the guarantee, no exceptions to the conditions of sale shall be accepted, nor will it be possible to engage in disputes relating to the terms of payment and the amounts indicated in invoices before or after the faults were detected.

Any disputes shall not exempt the Buyer from complying with the terms and conditions of the contract.

Any delay in the delivery of the goods cannot result in a claim for compensation on the part of the Buyer, nor in the payment of any indemnity or penalties of any nature or kind, nor to the payment of interests, nor will it justify the cancellation of the order.

10. OWNERSHIP RIGHT

Master SpA reserves the right of ownership of the Products until all the conditions of the contractual relationship with the Buyer have been satisfied. Subject to this condition, Master SpA reserves the right to terminate the contract, should the Buyer fail to comply with its obligations.
Any action by the Buyer which, except for any written agreement with Master SpA, adversely affects the right of ownership of Master SpA, will result in the obligation by the Buyer to fully reimburse Master Spa for any damages caused.

Until payment is received, the Buyer shall not be authorised to give the goods in security or guarantee of a credit. In this case, all the outstanding amounts due to Master SpA shall become immediately overdue. In the event that the Products are resold to third parties, as authorised in writing by Master SpA, the original Buyer is required to inform the third party of the ownership right of Master SpA on the sold products.

In the event of failed or late payment, even in part, of a confirmed order, Master SpA shall have the right to terminate the contract or to immediately collect the Products already delivered, retaining the amounts already received as indemnity.
