Conditions.
2
MAKING THE CONTRACT
2.1 Any written quotation, estimate and/or advertised price for
the Goods shall be an invitation to treat and no binding contract
shall be created by placing an order on Hilti’s website or otherwise
until Hilti has sent an acknowledgement of order to the Buyer or
(if earlier) Hilti delivers the Goods to the Buyer, whereupon a
Contract shall be formed. In the event that Hilti has not provided
an acknowledgement of order these Conditions, provided the
Buyer shall have had prior notice of them, shall nonetheless apply
to the Contract. Any order shall be accepted entirely at the
discretion of Hilti.
2.2 Any quotation made by Hilti is given subject to these
Conditions and is valid for 30 days from its date (or until any other
date shown on the quotation), provided that Hilti has not
previously withdrawn it.
2.3 Unless agreed otherwise in writing, these Conditions shall
be incorporated in the Contract to the exclusion of all other terms,
conditions or other representations (including any terms and
conditions which the Buyer may purport to apply under any order ,
confirmation of order, specification or other document whatsoever
and whenever).
2.4 These Conditions shall prevail unless expressly varied in
writing and signed by a Director for and on behalf of Hilti.

3.1 The quantity, quality, description of and any specification
for the Goods shall be as set out in Hilti's acknowledgement of
order or, in its absence, Hilti's quotation.
3.2 All descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued
by Hilti and any descriptions, details or illustrations contained in
Hilti’s catalogues or brochures are issued or published for the sole
purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods or Services
described in them and they will not form part of the Contract
unless otherwise agreed in writing.
3.3 Hilti reserves the right, without liability to the Buyer, to
make any changes in the specification of the Goods and/or
Services which are required to conform with any applicable
national and/or EU laws, regulations and/or safety requirements
or which do not materially affect the quality or performance of
the Goods and/or Services.
3.4 No statement, description, information, warranty,
condition or recommendation contained in any catalogue, price

issued the Buyer’s order. Hilti accordingly reserves the right at any
time, by notifying the Buyer in writing to adjust the invoice price
payable by the amount of any increase or decrease in such costs

time of delivery or upon notification by Hilti that the Goods are

Hilti in pounds sterling or euros.

court order requiring an amount equal to such deduction to be
paid by Hilti to the Buyer. Hilti may set off any claim of any kind

Contract or any other contract or otherwise howsoever against any
sum which would otherwise be due from the Buyer to Hilti under
the Contract or any other contract otherwise howsoever.

to Hilti under the Contract shall become due immediately upon
termination of the Contract for whatever reason.

deliveries of the Goods due under any Contract.

forthwith:
11.4.1
when Hilti issues a written notice to the Buyer
confirming such completion; or
11.4.2

of availability of test components or parts from the Buyer); or

the condition of the Buyer’s premises on the site at which
the Services are to be provided and/or the facilities at or the
services available at those premises at the time agreed for the
provision of the Services; or
(c)
the failure by the Buyer to comply with the Contract.
12
WARRANTIES
12.1 Where Goods and/or Services are supplied with the benefit
of a specific written warranty set out in another document
produced by Hilti, such warranty shall apply instead of the

except for the "manufacturer's lifetime warranty" set out in any
operating instructions supplied with the Goods.
12.2 If the Buyer establishes to Hilti’s reasonable satisfaction
within 12 months of the date of delivery of the Goods or
performance of the Services that there is a defect in the materials
or workmanship of the Goods or the Goods or Services are supplied
not in accordance with the Contract then Hilti shall at its option,
at its sole discretion and within a reasonable time:

in accordance with the Contract or re-perform such Services: or
12.2.3
issue a credit note to the Buyer in respect of the whole
or part of the Contract price or such Goods or Services as
appropriate having taken back such Goods or materials relating to
such Goods or Services. Subject in every case to the other
provisions of this Condition 12 provided that the liability of Hilti
under this Condition 12 shall in no event exceed the purchase
price of such Goods or services and performance of any one of the
above options shall constitute an entire discharge of Hilti’s liability
under this warranty.
12.3 Hilti shall not be liable for breach of the warranty at
Condition 12.2 above or any other warranty, guarantee or
condition:
12.3.1
arising from any defect in Goods arising from any
drawing, design or specification supplied by the Buyer; or

arising from any acts, omissions negligence or default of
the Buyer or arising from wilful damage, unsuitable storage,

employees, agents, suppliers or subcontractors; or
12.3.4
arising from incorporation, alteration, modification or
conversion of the Goods with any other goods, products or systems

systems or use of consumables, components or spare parts other
than those manufactured by Hilti without Hilti's prior written
approval; or
12.3.5
if the total price for the Goods and/or Services has not
been paid by the due date for payment; or
12.3.6
unless any claim by the Buyer which is based on any
defect in the quality or condition of the Goods and/or Services or
their failure to correspond with their description or specification
shall (whether or not delivery is refused by the Buyer) be notified
to Hilti within 7 days after the Buyer discovers or ought to have
discovered the defect or failure; or
12.3.7
unless Hilti is given a reasonable opportunity of
examining such Goods or location at which the Services were
performed and the Buyer (if asked to do so by Hilti) returns such
Goods or materials relating to the Services to Hilti's place of
business for the examination to take place there.
12.4 Save as expressly provided in these Conditions, all
warranties, conditions, guarantees or other terms implied by
statute, common law, custom usage or otherwise are excluded to
the fullest extent permitted by law.
13
BUYER’S RESPONSIBILITY
13.1 The selection of the Goods and/or Services suitable for the
Buyer’s purposes depends on a range of factors. These factors
include, but are not limited to, on-site conditions or other
circumstances of the proposed application of the Goods known
only to the Buyer. The Buyer is solely responsible for satisfying
itself that the data supplied to Hilti on which information or
recommendations made by Hilti are based is correct and that any
assumptions made by Hilti to supplement that data are suitable for
the Buyer’s purposes.
13.2 Any advice, representation or recommendation given by
Hilti or its Personnel to the Buyer or its employees or agents as to
the Goods and/or Services, their fitting or use, or as to the
incorporation or compatibility of the Goods with other goods, is
therefore followed or acted upon entirely at the Buyer’s own risk
and the Buyer acknowledges that it does not rely on and waives
any claim for breach of any such representation. Accordingly, the
Buyer must rely on its own judgement and if necessary seek expert
advice in relation to the following:
13.2.1
the suitability and compatibility of the Goods for the
intended use;
13.2.2
the training necessary for the Buyer and its employees;
13.2.3
the required level of ongoing maintenance for the
Goods; and
13.2.4
the adequacy of the premises in which the Goods are to
be used.
13.3
The Buyer acknowledges that it is responsible for
ensuring it and its employees, agents, contractors and end-users of
the Goods:
13.3.1
store, handle, use, construct, maintain, and repair the
Goods at all times in accordance with good practice and in
accordance with the Goods’ method statements and data sheets,
as well as all other relevant safety, training, usage and
maintenance instructions and guidelines supplied to the Buyer
from time to time by Hilti, its employees, agents or contractors;
13.3.2
receive the necessary training in respect of Goods
supplied;
13.3.3
in connection with the hiring of the Goods or the Goods
being otherwise used by third parties, that the Goods are supplied
in the original packaging including all method statements, data
sheets, labelling and warnings as are supplied with the Goods by
Hilti;
13.3.4
use the Goods with the recommended safety equipment
in accordance with all applicable method statements and data
sheets, and other relevant Company safety, training, usage and
maintenance instructions and guidelines supplied from time to
time; and
13.3.5
comply at all times with Health and Safety at Work, etc
Act 1974, and all other relevant legislation in respect of the Goods
and their usage.
14
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
14.1
In an effort to keep the Contract price as low as
possible, and as the Buyer is better able than Hilti to quantify loss
which it may suffer from a breach of contract and to insure
accordingly, the Buyer agrees that the provisions of Conditions 12
(Warranties) and this Condition 14 which set out the entire
financial liability of Hilti (including any liability for the acts or
omissions of its employees, agents and sub-contractors) to the
Buyer and the exclusive remedies of the Buyer against Hilti in
respect of:
14.1.1
any breach of these Conditions;
14.1.2
any use made by the Buyer of any of the Goods; and
14.1.3
any representation (unless fraudulent), statement or
tortious act or omission including negligence and breach of
statutory duty arising under or in connection with the Contract or
in relation to any other matter or thing whatsoever under or in
relation to the Contract.
14.2
Hilti shall not be liable to the Buyer for any economic
loss of whatever nature (direct or indirect), including without
limitation loss of anticipated profits, loss of actual profits (direct or
indirect) loss of turnover or revenue, loss of business, loss of
production or opportunity, loss of data, depletion of goodwill or
otherwise.
14.3
Hilti shall not be liable for any indirect, special or
consequential loss or damage howsoever arising.
14.4
Notwithstanding any other provision contained in these
Conditions, Hilti does not in any manner whatsoever exclude or
limit its liability if and to the extent that such liability:
14.4.1
arises out of the fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation
of Hilti; or
14.4.2
is in respect of death or personal injury caused by
negligence of Hilti; or
