You or your means the legal entity of the customer specified on an invoice or in any credit application or other agreement with us, or the customer to whom our goods are supplied, and if more than one person, each of them jointly and severally.

    Buying the Product

  1. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, you request that we supply Products to you on these Terms.
  2. We may accept or decline any order for the Product in whole or in part. On acceptance, these Terms apply (unless we have made a separate written agreement with you about supply of the Product).

  4. Delivery and Freight

  5. You agree to pay any freight charges and fees as advised by us applicable to all Product deliveries.  You acknowledge and consent to us delivering any Products to you using a subcontractor or a third party member of our distribution network.
  6. As a separate and independent contract from the contract relating to the Product, you agree to contract with us to deliver, on your behalf, any Product you order to you at the delivery location agreed between us and you.
  7. The Product is deemed to be delivered when the Product arrives at your nominated delivery point, which delivery point must be safe and fully accessible. Neither we, nor our carriers or members of our distribution network are required to collect a signature from you or other proof of delivery.
  8. You cannot cancel an order once we have accepted it and you cannot refuse to accept delivery.
  9. Whilst delivery in most cases should be within 7 business days, any delivery times communicated by us to you are estimates only, and you are not entitled to refuse to accept delivery of Products due to a delay in delivery. You acknowledge that we are not liable to you for any costs or losses that you suffer or incur as a result of any late delivery of the Products.
  10. We are entitled to charge you additional fees to cover any delay or storage needed if we attempt to deliver the Product to you, but cannot for any reason.

  11. Charges and Payment

  12. Our prices are subject to alteration without notice. Unless we otherwise agree in writing, the price payable for the Products will be our current price at the date of delivery (plus any freight and delivery charges or other applicable charges payable by you).
  13. The charges specified in our standard price list, or quoted to you by us from time to time, do not include GST unless expressly specified otherwise.
  14. The Product price is separate and distinct from any applicable Freight charge or Service Fee. Even though the amounts may be listed in one invoice they are not a single lump sum consideration but represent separate consideration for each independent contract.
  15. You must pay all charges listed in an invoice (including any GST and other taxes payable in connection with the supply or under these Terms) without set-off by the due date specified in the invoice. Time is of the essence with respect to this requirement.

  19. If you do not pay any amounts payable under these Terms by their due date or you become bankrupt, insolvent or have a receiver, manager or liquidator appointed to you, then all monies for all Product and Equipment delivered to you become immediately due and payable (regardless of any agreed credit terms) and we are entitled to suspend all further delivery of Product and Equipment under this or any other arrangement and all further performance of any other contract between you and us, until you pay all amounts due.
  20. You indemnify us for all costs we incur because of any overdue payment, including dishonour fees, collection fees or legal fees.
  21. If any payment you make is voided or conceded to be void or is voidable at our election, then that payment does not discharge your debt to us, and we remain the owner of the Product.

  22. Ownership & Return of Product and Equipment

  23. We remain the owner of the Product specified in this invoice until you have paid all money you owe us for the Product and for any other Product we have supplied to you.

  25. After we deliver the Product or Equipment to you and while we still own it, you hold it for us as our bailee, which carries certain legal obligations including a duty to take care of the Product or Equipment. You promise to fulfil all your legal obligations as bailee.

  29. We may resell Product and Equipment which we repossess on any terms and as we see fit. We may apply the proceeds to repay any debt you owe us.
  30. We are not liable for any damage caused to the premises during any repossession. You indemnify us against any Claim for the damage made by another person.
  31. If these Terms (or a transaction in connection with it) is or contains a security interest for the purposes of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (“PPSA”), you must upon request do anything which we consider necessary for the purposes of ensuring that the security interest is enforceable, perfected and otherwise effective, and to enable us to apply for any registration, give any notification, and to exercise any rights in connection with the security interest.
  32. We are not obliged, before exercising a right under these Terms or conferred by law, to give you any notice or demand, or allow a lapse of time, that is required by law unless the notice, demand or lapse of time cannot be excluded. To the extent permitted by law, you expressly waive any rights you may have under the PPSA (including without limitation s. 157) to be given any such notices or demands.

  46. To the maximum extent permitted by law (including Part 3-2 of the Australian Consumer Law), we limit our liability to you in respect of any Claim relating to the Product, the Equipment or any services we provide to you in connection with them to our choice of supplying equivalent Product or Equipment, or resupplying the services, or giving you a credit for any price paid or payable for the Product, Equipment or services.
  47.
