8. Disclaimer

The Customer acknowledges and agrees:

Goods which are described by the Seller as “economy” or “factory second” are goods that have failed to pass quality inspection, including due to cosmetic reasons (as opposed to functional reasons);
to the maximum extent permitted by law, such “economy” or “factory second” Goods are sold “as-is”, including in respect of their cosmetic and other physical features due to the nature of such “economy” or “factory second” Goods and having regard to the basis upon which they are sold, the Buyer shall not be entitled to make any claims in respect of cosmetic faults in respect of such Goods, including with respect to calibration differences in the Goods;
all “economy” or “factory second” Goods are subject to limited availability and are sold on that basis that such Goods shall only be available from the Seller “while stocks last”;

Any such written guarantees are subject to the recognised tolerances applicable to such figures.

10. Delivery

The delivery times made known to the Buyer are estimates only and the Seller is not liable for late delivery or non-delivery.
The Seller will not be liable for any loss, damage or delay occasioned to the Buyer or its customers arising from late or non-delivery or late installation of the Goods.
The Seller may at its option deliver the Goods to the Buyer in any number of instalments unless there is an endorsement overleaf to the effect that the Buyer will not take delivery by instalments.
If the Seller delivers any of the Goods by instalments, and any one of those instalments is defective for any reason:
this does not constitute a repudiation of the contract of sale formed by these conditions; and
the defective instalment is a severable breach that gives rise only to a claim for compensation.

11. Loss or damage in transit

The Seller is not responsible to the Buyer or any person claiming through the Buyer for any loss or damage to Goods in transit caused by any event of any kind or by any person (whether or not the Seller is legally responsible for the actions of that person).
The Seller must provide the Buyer with such assistance as may be reasonably necessary to institute claims against a carrier for damages to Goods in transit so long as the Buyer:
has notified the Seller and the carrier in writing immediately after loss or damage is discovered by the Buyer on receipt of Goods; and
serves a claim for compensation on the carrier within 3 days of the date of receipt of the Goods.

12. Guarantee

The Seller’s liability for Goods manufactured by it is limited to making good any defects. This must be done by repairing the defects or, at the Seller’s option, by replacement, within a period not exceeding 12 calendar months after the Goods have been dispatched. This applies so long as:
the defects have arisen solely from faulty materials or workmanship;
the Goods have not received maltreatment, inattention or interference;
accessories of any kind used by the Buyer are manufactured by or approved by Seller;
the seals of any kind on the Goods remain unbroken; and
the defective parts are promptly returned free of cost to the Seller.
If the Goods are not manufactured by the Seller, the guarantee of the manufacturer of those Goods is accepted by the Buyer and is the only guarantee given to the Buyer for the Goods. The Seller agrees to assign to the Buyer on request made by the Buyer the benefit of any warranty or entitlement to the Goods that the manufacturer has granted to the Seller under any contract or by implication or operation of law to the extent that the benefit of any warranty or entitlement is assignable.
The Seller is not liable for, and the Buyer releases the Seller from, any claims in respect of faulty or defective design of any Goods supplied. This is unless the design has been wholly prepared by the Seller and the responsibility for any claim has been specifically accepted by the Seller in writing.
The Seller’s liability under clause 12(c) is limited strictly to the replacement of defective parts in accordance with clause 12(a) of these conditions.
Except as provided in these conditions, all express and implied warranties, guarantees and conditions under statute or general law as to merchantability, description, quality, suitability or fitness of the Goods for any purpose or as to design, assembly, installation, materials or workmanship or otherwise are expressly excluded. The Seller is not liable for physical or financial injury, loss or damage or for consequential loss or damage of any kind arising out of the supply, layout, assembly, installation or operation of the Goods or arising out of the Seller’s negligence or in any way.

the cost of obtaining equivalent goods; or
the cost of having the Goods repaired,

whichever is the lowest amount.

15. Prices

Unless otherwise stated all prices quoted by vendor are exclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Third Party Rates may vary slightly from the date of the quotation to the time of delivery of the Goods. The Buyer will be liable for any increase in the Third Party Rates.
If the Seller makes any alterations to the price of the Goods or to any of their inputs either before acceptance of or during the currency of the contract, these alterations are for the Buyer’s account.

16. Payment

The purchase price for the Goods plus GST where applicable is payable at the time the Customer places its order (Payment Due Date) unless other terms of payment are agreed in writing between the parties.
The Buyer must pay interest on any outstanding amount not paid by Payment Due Date. Interest will be calculated on the basis of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia Business Indicator Rate as published from time to time plus 2%. Interest will accrue daily from the Payment Due Date until the outstanding amount is paid in full.

The parties agree that the Seller may charge for storage from the first day after the Seller requests the Buyer to provide delivery instructions.

19. Returned Goods

Except for any provisions to the contrary contained in this agreement, the Seller is not under any duty to accept Goods returned by the Buyer. The Seller will do so only on terms to be agreed in writing in each individual case.

Seller may charge a restocking fee of 30% of the price of the relevant Goods. Customer acknowledges that such fee is a genuine pre-estimate of Seller’s costs and expenses in connection with the supply and return of such Goods.

20. Goods sold

All Goods to be supplied by the Seller to the Buyer are as described on the purchase order agreed by the Seller and the Buyer and the description on such purchase order as so agreed prevails over all other descriptions of the Goods including any specification or enquiry of the Buyer.

21. Cancellation

This agreement will automatically terminate if a party enters into any composition or arrangement with its creditors or has a receiver appointed over any of its assets or is the subject of any resolution or petition for winding up or judicial management (other than for the purpose of amalgamation or reconstruction).
Either party may terminate this agreement if the other party is in material breach of any of its obligations under this agreement and if the breach is capable of remedy fails to remedy the breach for a period of 14 days after receipt of a written notice by the other party requiring rectification of the breach.
Exercise of the right of termination afforded to either party under this clause will not prejudice the legal rights or remedies which either party may have against the other in respect of a breach of any term, condition or warranty of this agreement.
The obligations of the parties that by their nature could reasonably construed as being intended to continue to apply beyond the termination of this agreement will continue to apply.

23. Governing law
