Reciission after acceptance by the client is to occur without delay.2.3 Any acceptance of the tender referred to in article 2.2 which deviates from the tender is valid as a rejection of the original tender and as a new tender which is not binding on JetCleaning B.V. This also applies if the acceptance only differs from the tender on minor points. 2.4An order is only binding on JetCleaning B.V. to the extent that this has been made in writing by it and accepted without conditions.2.5 (Purchase) agreements may not be rescinded by the client without the written permission of JetCleaning B.V.. An agreed cancellation results in the fact that costs already made as also the amount of the loss of profit and any losses are for the account of the client.2.6 Any subsequent agreement between JetCleaning B.V. and the client, whether or not entered into on the execution of the agreement, is only regarded by JetCleaning B.V. as having been realised on the written agreement of JetCleaning B.V.. 2.7 Sales of custom made products/machines are always final and can’t be cancelled. 2.8 Any unmistakable error(s) in the tender made by JetCleaning B.V. dismiss the latter from its obligation to supply and/or any damages arising therefrom, even once the agreement has been made.
