Basis of contract
The Customer may submit an Order to Haulmont via the email email@example.com, the contact form on the Site or via the purchase form on the Site. Each Order must be submitted before making a payment and must specify (and as relevant to the Services being ordered):
- the Services which the Customer would like to order (i.e. Training and/or Professional Services);
- the number of Participants who will receive the Training;
- the number of Professional Services Hours.
- A quotation or estimate relating to the Services constitutes an invitation to the Customer to make an offer for supply of such Services. Any quotation or estimate relating to Services to be delivered by Haulmont is not a binding offer and is not capable of acceptance. Any estimate/quotation is only valid for a period of 1 month from its date of issue, provided that Haulmont has not previously withdrawn it.
- Each Order issued by the Customer or acceptance by the Customer of a quotation or estimate from Haulmont for the supply of Services shall be deemed to be an offer by the Customer to purchase Services from Haulmont subject to and in accordance with these Terms. The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted by Haulmont when Haulmont issues a written acknowledgment of the Order to the Customer, which Haulmont may do, at its absolute discretion, by sending an email to the Customer to the email address specified in the Order ("Confirmation Email").
- Provided Haulmont has received payment for the Order in accordance with clause 6, the Contract shall come into existence ("Commencement Date").
- If Haulmont is unable or unwilling to supply the Customer with any Services included in an Order, Haulmont shall inform the Customer by email and the Order shall not be processed in respect of those Services. If the Customer has already paid for those Services, Haulmont shall refund the full amount for those Services as soon as reasonably practicable.
- Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter or advertising issued by Haulmont, and any descriptions or illustrations contained in Haulmont's website, catalogues, quotations/estimates and/or brochures, are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Services described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force.
- All Contracts shall be on these Terms to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (including any terms or conditions which the Customer purports to apply or seeks to impose or incorporate orally, or under any purchase order, confirmation of order, specification or other document, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing). Accordingly, no terms or conditions endorsed on, delivered with or contained in the Customer's Order, confirmation of order, specification or other document shall form any part of any Contract.
- The Customer may not amend or cancel an Order at any time after Haulmont has received payment (i.e. in accordance with clause 6) for the Customer's Order.

- Once the Training Schedule has been agreed, Haulmont shall send to the Customer access information for the Training. The Customer shall (and shall procure that each Participant shall) keep such access information secret, secure and confidential. Haulmont reserves the right to disable the Customer's (or any of its Participants') access to the Training if, in Haulmont's reasonable opinion, the Customer (or any of its Participants) have failed to comply with this clause.

- rent, lease, create derivative works of, distribute, sell, sub-licence or transfer the Training (or any part thereof);

The Customer is responsible for:
- ensuring that each Participant has all necessary technical ability and knowledge to access and comprehend the Training;
- arranging its Participants' access to the Training in accordance with the Training Schedule.
- Where the Order and subsequent Contract includes Professional Services, this clause 5 shall apply.
From time to time during the Term, the Customer may contact Haulmont (i.e. via email to email@example.com or the contact form on the Site) and submit a request for Professional Services. The Customer's request shall set out:
- the nature of the Professional Services required;
- the scope of the Professional Services that the Customer would like Haulmont to carry out.

- Professional Services will be provided remotely at all times, unless agreed otherwise (in writing) between Haulmont and the Customer.
- All dates supplied by Haulmont for the provision of Professional Services shall be treated as approximate only. Haulmont shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from any delay in delivery beyond such approximate dates.

- infringe (or may infringe) the rights of any third party.

- the Professional Services that have been provided to the Customer in the preceding month;

On the expiry of this notice period, the Contract will terminate. Such termination shall be without prejudice to the rights of the parties in respect of any breach of the Contract occurring prior to such termination.
- A party, provided that it has complied with the provisions of sub-clause 17.2, shall not be in breach of the Contract, nor liable for any failure or delay in performance of any obligations under the Contract (and, subject to sub-clause 17.3, the time for performance of the obligations shall be extended accordingly) arising from or attributable to acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond its reasonable control ("Force Majeure Event"), including but not limited to any of the following:
