VENDOR / SUPPLIER / USER AGREEMENT
The Procurement System (also referred to as the "System") is an electronic tool that allows Ooredoo Q.P.S.C (hereinafter referred to as Ooredoo) to provide to participating vendor’s authorized representative (hereinafter referred to as "Vendor") the ability, among other things, to receive requests for quotations, purchase orders, contracts and send quotes, bids, shipment notices and invoices online and engage in cooperative procurement activities.
The Vendor is required to complete the online registration of his/her company profile for approval. Completion of online registration would allow Ooredoo to register the Vendor as a pre-approved supplier of Ooredoo and assign a username and password for a secure access to the System.
The Vendor acknowledges that he/she fully understands the nature of the System and the governing terms and conditions. The Vendor's use of this System constitutes his agreement to the terms and conditions, which are stated below
Conduit Services Only
The Ooredoo Procurement System provides only an internet conduit (medium?) through which the Vendor can communicate the availability of its goods and services, respond to request for quotations, bids or proposals to Ooredoo and for Ooredoo to communicate its procurement needs to the Vendor.
If either Party transmits a document using any network access device or password of such Party, such document will be deemed “signed” and “executed” by such Party. Each Party waives any defense to the enforceability of any contract formed as a result of the transmission of such document on the ground that it was not “signed” or “executed” by the Party.
Documents shall be deemed properly delivered by the sender when transmitted to the receiving Party’s pre-agreed designated receipt terminal or electronic mailbox.
Documents shall be deemed properly received by the receiving Party when accessed at such Party’s designated receipt terminal or electronic mailbox, whether or not an acknowledgment is received by either party.
If the Parties agree in writing that notification of acceptance of the terms of a document is required, any such document even though properly received, shall not give rise to any obligation unless and until the Party receiving such document has properly delivered in return an acceptance document or other agreed form of acknowledgment of acceptance.
If any properly delivered document is received in an unintelligible or garbled form (i.e. one which cannot be completely translated) the receiving Party shall promptly notify the originating Party and request a copy of the document to be re-transmitted. In the absence of such notice, the originating Party’s records of the contents of such document shall prevail.
The Ooredoo Procurement System is available only to designated agents and properly registered vendors who desire to, have entered into, or are choosing to enter into legally binding agreement with Ooredoo. Accordingly, access to the System is limited to vendors having been assigned username and password. Also, only authorized vendor representative, who hold individual username and password may use this System. The Vendor agrees not to divulge his Vendor username, password or any individual authorization code to anyone outside his company. Ooredoo has no way of detecting unauthorized use of the Vendor's codes and is not responsible for any unauthorized use of the System. The Vendor is solely and completely responsible to SAFEGUARD THE ASSIGNED USERNAME AND PASSWORD. Unauthorized users of this System may be subject to both civil and criminal prosecution under applicable Qatar laws.
