Certain additional services may be provided by Vention or directly by a Vention Certified System Integrator (“CSI”), such as on-site assembly, programming, equipment calibration, and equipment commissioning services for the Products you purchased (the “Additional Services”). The performance of Additional Services by Vention, directly or through a CSI, is conditional upon you and Vention agreeing to the specific terms and conditions applicable to such Additional Services.

Products may require additional safety features, or engineering validation, including structural assessments and safety risk assessments. You are solely responsible to perform these engineering validations and to incorporate and install all required safety features to ensure your Product can be installed and operated safely and in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations, norms, and standards. Without limiting the foregoing, you are solely responsible for validating that any anchoring of Vention equipment to your existing equipment, building structure or flooring complies to applicable laws, regulations, rules, norms, and standards. You acknowledge that Vention is not able to provide these engineering services, as they require specific knowledge of existing installations in place, for which Vention has not been granted access and/or does not have the applicable technical data.

If, as part of a Design Review, Design Services or Additional Services, Vention recommends a particular design feature to mitigate a safety risk and you reject such recommendation, you take full responsibility for implementing an equivalent safety mitigation measure to address the safety risk identified by Vention in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, rules, norms, and standards.

You understand that you are solely responsible for establishing the appropriate level of permission to your User Content and that the modification of such levels may only be valid for the future. Furthermore, the above-mentioned license granted to Vention in connection with your User Content shall not be affected in any way by any parameters and levels of access and usage that you may specify from time to time for your User Content.

You agree to abide by any restrictions on access and usage that Users may specify for their User Content, including that of using any User Content for the purpose of purchasing the Products, and you agree that Vention shall in no way be liable for the infringement by other Users of any restrictions you may have specified.

Order Procedure

Orders only become binding with the acceptance of the order by Vention, whether the order was placed electronically on the Website or following a purchase order from you (when authorized by Vention) (a “Valid Order”). Vention is not bound to furnish its goods or services except in accordance with the Agreement.

Unless specifically agreed otherwise by Vention, the Agreement governs any Valid Order and supersedes any other terms and conditions. Any additional or different terms (a) provided by you before, during or after the performance of the Valid Order, (b) contained or referred to in a purchase order, acknowledgment, receipt or any other form you issue or (c) implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing, are void and unenforceable. Any attempt to modify, supersede, supplement or otherwise alter the Agreement, are deemed rejected by Vention and will not modify the Agreement or be binding. Only terms that have been specifically and fully approved in a written agreement between you and Vention may amend the terms and conditions applicable to a Valid Order.

Vention reserves the right to reject or cancel Valid Orders for any reason, including but not limited to the event where any applicable law or commercial agreement prevents the sale of the Products in your area. The Partner Products sold by the Partners or through the Service follow terms and conditions specific to those Partner Products. You are responsible for acknowledging the terms and conditions relating to the Partner Products you are ordering. When ordering products from a Partner, you are deemed to have read the terms and conditions relating to such products and to have agreed with them.

Valid Order Cancellations by You

Vention may, in good faith, accept a request for cancellation of a Valid Order that is made within twenty-four (24) hours following the submission of the order. Should you cancel a Valid Order twenty-four (24) hours after the Order for the Products and before the Products have shipped, a cancellation fee equivalent to thirty percent (30%) of the Valid Order shall apply. To cancel an Assembly Service, please refer to the applicable section of the GTC and contact: support@vention.io. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, if Vention or, when applicable, a Partner, has already started the execution of a Valid Order, then no cancellation shall be allowed.

Pricing and Payment Terms

For Products purchased on the Website, final pricing, including Product prices, Assembly Service fees, and shipping and handling fees, are reflected on a Valid Order. Once you have chosen your shipping method, final prices stated in your Valid Order shall be deemed to include all applicable taxes in accordance with applicable laws, as well as any fees, costs, and expenses related to packaging, crating, boxing, and, for deliveries in Canada and the United States, all applicable customs, tariffs, and duties, unless otherwise stated by Vention in your Valid Order. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, you shall be solely responsible for all costs for transporting, loading and unloading, customs, tariffs, duties, insurance, and any other similar financial contributions or obligations relating to the sale and shipment of the Products. Published prices on Products may be changed without notice, at Vention’s or our Partners’ sole discretion, but changes will not affect any Valid Order for Products that you have already placed and is accepted by Vention. All monies stipulated for Products and Services are expressed in the currency that was made available to you and that you have elected on the Platform at the time of submission of your order.

Vention is responsible for collecting payments for the Partner Products you may order. If you are eligible for rebates granted by Vention, the rebates are applicable to the Vention Products only and, at Vention’s discretion, it is possible that the rebates cannot be applied on Partner Products.

Vention (or its third party payment processor, if applicable) shall charge all applicable fees on the credit card specified for the payment and process the charges to such credit card prior to shipment of the Products ordered. You agree that we do not provide any warranties with respect to such third party payment processor services and that it is your responsibility to read the terms and conditions and/or privacy policies applicable to such services before using them.

If such situation occurs, you will receive an error message from the Service and the transaction will be denied. Moreover, Vention may suspend your Account and contact you so you can provide Vention with valid alternative credit card information. Such suspension shall not relieve you from your obligation to pay any fees owed to Vention.

Delivery, Transfer of Title, and Risk of Loss

When selecting shipping options, you may choose to request delivery with our carrier or to pick-up your order at our facilities, unless the shipment is for a product from a Partner, in which case the terms and conditions of the Partner will apply.

Except as otherwise stated in a Valid Order, for orders that are shipped to you, delivery terms and transfer of title and risk shall be DDP for Canada and the United States and DAP or DAT for other countries and territories as indicated in your order. Shipment is to be made by such mode of transport and route as determined by Vention or the Partner. Vention reserves the right to make shipment in installments when necessary, to invoice each installment accordingly, and to expect payment for each installment following Vention’s payment terms.

For Valid Orders that are picked-up at our facilities, delivery terms and transfer of title and risk shall be EXW.

SHIPPING DATES GIVEN BY VENTION, IF ANY, ARE APPROXIMATE AND ARE BASED ON PROMPT RECEIPT OF ALL NECESSARY INFORMATION REGARDING THE ORDER. VENTION UNDERTAKES TO USE ITS REASONABLE ENDEAVORS TO DISPATCH THE PRODUCTS ON AN AGREED DELIVERY DATE, BUT DOES NOT GUARANTEE TO DO SO. THE SHIPPING DATES GIVEN BY VENTION ARE NOT GUARANTEED, AS THERE MAY BE EXTENDED LEAD TIMES DEPENDING ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE VALID ORDER (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, A VALID ORDER WITH CUSTOM CUTS OR PARTNER PRODUCTS OR ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS). Time of delivery is not of the essence in this Agreement. Failure to make shipments as scheduled does not constitute a cause for cancellation and/or for damages of any nature against Vention. If a delay is requested by you, or any delay is caused by lack of shipping instructions from you, Vention will store all items ordered at your risk and expense to the full exoneration of Vention.

Vention shall not be liable for any indirect, consequential, special or incidental losses or damages arising directly or indirectly from any delay in the delivery or short delivery of the Products.

Notwithstanding the above, for products provided by Partners directly to you, there may be no possibility of pick-up or delivery at our facilities. In such cases, the delivery will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Partner, including the delivery date and transfer of title and risk, and Vention will have no liability regarding the shipping.

Except for those taxes based on Vention’s income, you are responsible for all applicable taxes in connection with the Subscription Plan and Subscribed Services, including, but not limited to, sales, use, excise, value-added, goods and services, consumption, and other similar taxes or duties. If you are exempt from certain taxes, Customer will provide proof of such exemption to Vention without undue delay upon execution of the applicable Order Form.

Upon renewal of the Subscription Plan, Vention may increase your fees up to our then-current price set out on Vention’s Platform. Vention will notify you at least thirty (30) days in advance of your renewal and the increased fees will apply at the start of the next renewal term. If you do not agree to this increase, either party can choose to terminate your subscription at the end of your then-current term by giving the non-renewal notice required in the term and termination section below. 

You will pay the subscription fee upon purchase of the Subscription Plan or within 30 days of the Subscription Plan Renewal Term start date.

Term and Renewal

Either party may terminate the Subscribed Services, without notice, (i) upon the institution by or against the other party of receivership or bankruptcy proceedings, (ii) upon the other party's making an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or (iii) upon the other party's dissolution or ceasing to do business without a successor.

ALL LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND WAIVERS SET OUT IN THIS GTC APPLY TO THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SUBSCRIBED SERVICES BY VENTION

Support Services Plan

THE FOREGOING SUPPORT SERVICES PLAN IS FOR YOUR EXCLUSIVE BENEFIT AND IS NOT TRANSFERABLE.

General Provisions

These general provisions apply to all Services Plans.

Vention aims to provide exceptional customer service to you. The Support Services Plan is designed for those who require assistance (the “Support Services”) after the purchase of Products (the “Support Services Plan”). The Standard Service Plan is included as part of your Product purchase. Under certain conditions, you may also purchase Premium Services Plans or Hourly Customer Support Services Plan, as described hereunder. In all cases, Support Services are subject to your compliance with all your obligations under this Agreement. The Support Services Plan does not apply to Ineligible Products and Vention has no responsibility to provide Support Services for Ineligible Products. Vention reserves the right to amend the Support Services Plan at any time.

As part of the Support Services Plan, Vention may in addition provide you with limited complimentary online documentation consisting of standard training sessions for assembly, programming, and integration of Products (the “Standard Training Sessions”), the format of which is to be decided by Vention.

All Support Requests under any Services Plan must be submitted via email to Vention Integration Coaches at: integrationsupport@vention.cc. Support Requests not submitted in accordance with this instruction may not be received or considered by Vention.

Upon receipt of a duly submitted Support Request, Vention will make all reasonable efforts to identify the issue to be resolved (“Root Cause”). The Root Cause is subject to Vention’s final determination. In order to assist Vention in defining the Root Cause and resolving the issue, you must report to Vention all problems with the Product, provide Vention with all information, access, and good faith cooperation required to facilitate the provision of the Support Services and promptly implement any corrective procedure or duly perform any instruction provided by Vention to support the diagnosis of the Root Cause or to resolve the issue reported.

In the event you fail to provide the required assistance or to comply, in whole or in part, with any instructions or recommendations provided by Vention or with any obligation hereunder, the whole to Vention's satisfaction, Vention may, at its sole discretion, decline you the benefit of the Support Services Plan and the Limited Vention Product Warranty for the Product which is the subject of your Support Request. In such event, Vention shall have no further obligation to you with respect to the Support Services Plan and the Limited Vention Product Warranty for said Product.

In the event on-site technical Support Services are required for a Service Request, you shall be responsible for all associated out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by Vention’s representative in connection with the performance of technical Support Services, including customary and reasonable travel and living costs and expenses and costs and expenses to implement required safety measures determined by Vention to ensure the safety of its representative. A fifteen percent (15%) will be added to the costs and expenses charged in relation to the on-site support. Vention shall provide an estimate of such costs beforehand. You are responsible for granting access to the location at the arranged time and providing a safe working environment required for Vention to perform the Support Services.

The same payment terms and conditions as those in place when the Valid Order for which the Support Request was made shall apply for payment of the bill of the Support Services. The Hourly Rate shall be converted to the currency that was selected at the time of the Valid Order for which the Support Request was made, using the exchange rate applicable at the time the Support Services Plan is being executed, unless otherwise agreed to by both parties.

Generally, a Support Request is resolved and Vention has no further obligation towards you (except as provided in the Limited Vention Product Warranty) when you receive one of the following: (a) a solution to resolve the problem; (b) a notice from Vention that the Root Cause of the Problem originates from a cause other than a defect in the Products or Services provided by Vention (for example if the issue originates from your design, installation, use or maintenance of the Product); or (c) you choose not to have Vention provide the Support Services.

Standard Services Plan

The Standard Support Services Plan provided by Vention is free of charge if the Product is covered under the Limited Vention Product Warranty, unless otherwise provided herein, and is valid for a period of one (1) year after the date of purchase. Phone and email support is available Monday through Friday, from 9AM to 6PM, Eastern Standard Time, excluding weekends and Canadian holidays (“Hours of Operation”). Support Services availability may occasionally vary from stated hours due to downtime for systems and server maintenance, and circumstances beyond the control of Vention. Phone and chat support requests will be handled in the order in which they are received.

Vention will make reasonable efforts to respond to a Support Request (as defined herein) within a reasonable time (“Response Time”) but does not guarantee that a response will be provided within a specific time period. All Response Times are measured during the Hours of Operation. Vention will make reasonable efforts to resolve a request for support under the Support Services Plan (the “Support Request”) but does not guarantee that the problem will be resolved.

Under the Standard Services Plan, Vention provides up to two (2) hours of Support Services at no charge for the sum of all individual Support Requests for a given machine, design, assembly, equipment, Product or such other system made whole by the sum of purchased Products, whether through a single or multiple Valid Orders, as defined by Vention.

If the Root Cause of a Support Request is determined by Vention as originating from a defect in the Products or the Services themselves, Vention shall provide Support Services at no charge until the issue is resolved, within the limits of the Limited Vention Product Warranty.

If the Root Cause is identified by Vention as originating from a cause other than a defect in the Products or the Services themselves, any time invested at identifying the Root Cause and solving the Root Cause, in excess of the initial two (2) hours of Support Services offered at no cost to you by Vention, will be charged at Vention’s hourly rate applicable at the time of the service request (the “Hourly Rate”), multiplied by the number of hours it takes to resolve the issue, or until (a) you request that the Support Services stop, or (b) Vention decides to stop providing the Support Services.

For clarity, if Vention identifies that the Root Cause triggering the Support Request originates from a cause other than a defect in the Products or Services provided by Vention (for example if the issue originates from your design, installation, use or maintenance of the Product), Vention shall have no responsibility to provide Support Services to resolve the issue, over and above the two (2) hours of Support Services included in the Standard Service Plan.

Premium Application Support Package (United Sates and Canada only)

As an option when buying a Vention Productized Application such as, for example a cobot palletizer, a robot range extender or a conveyor, you may purchase a Premium Application Support Package, in addition to the Standard Support Package.

Premium Plans Service Levels

Under the Premium Application Support Package or the Premium Custom Projects Support Package, Vention will respond to the Support Request in accordance with the Service Levels for the applicable Premium Services Plan provided to you by Vention when purchasing the Services Plan.

The priority level is determined by Vention based on the information provided in the Support Request, in accordance with the following definition: (i) “Urgent” means a critical issue completely stopping the Solution from functioning or being used and causing a material impact on your operations; (ii) “High” means an issue degrading the performance of the Solution below the Application’s or Custom Product’s applicable performance specification defined in the purchase agreement; and (iii) “Normal” means any other technical issues or questions.

Provided the Root Cause of the issue reported in the Support Request is identified by Vention as originating from a defect in the Products or the Services provided by Vention, Vention will provide Support Services at no charge until the issue is resolved, within the limits of the Vention Limited Product Warranty.

If the Root Cause is identified by Vention as originating from a cause other than a defect in the Products or the Services provided by Vention (for example if the issue originates from your design, installation, use or maintenance of the Product), any time invested in identifying the Root Cause and solving the Root Cause will be deducted from the Premium Support Package, except for: (i) up to one (1) hour of Support Services at no charge (the "Free Support Hour") for the Product covered by the applicable Premium Support Plan (including a Product consisting of a system comprised of multiple parts whether purchased through a single or multiple Valid Orders, as defined by Vention) and (ii) time spent supporting a Support Request consisting of a single inquiry that requires Vention to share readily available information about the Product. Once the remaining number of hours under the applicable Premium Support Package reaches zero (0), any additional time invested in identifying the Root Cause and solving the issue (the "Additional Time") will be charged at the rate of two hundred dollars ($200.00) per hour (the “Hourly Rate”) until (a) you request that the Support Services stop, or (b) Vention stops providing the Support Services, at its own discretion.

Hourly Customer Support Services Plan

If you do not purchase a Premium Support Plan Package, Vention offers a remote support option where hourly pricing applies to support in addition to the Standard Services Plan offered by Vention. The Hourly Customer Support Packages are defined on Vention’s Platform. Vention will respond to Support Requests in accordance with the Service Levels for the applicable Hourly Customer Support Services Plan provided to you by Vention when purchasing the Services Plan.

The priority level is determined by Vention based on the information provided in the Support Request, in accordance with the following definition: (i) “Urgent” means a critical issue completely stopping the Solution from functioning or being used and causing a material impact on your operations; (ii) “High” means an issue degrading the performance of the Solution below the Application’s or Custom Product’s applicable performance specification defined in the purchase agreement; and (iii) “Normal” means any other technical issues or questions.
