2.2         No terms or conditions endorsed upon, delivered with or contained in the Purchaser's purchase order, confirmation of order, Quotation or other document will form part of the Contract simply as a result of such document being referred to in the Contract.

2.6         The Purchaser must ensure that the terms of its order and any applicable Quotation are complete and accurate.

2.7         Any quotation is given on the basis that no contract will come into existence until the Supplier dispatches an acknowledgement of order to the Purchaser.    Any quotation is valid for a period of 30 days only from its date, provided that the Supplier has not previously withdrawn it.

2.8         Any deposit paid following acceptance of a Quotation is refundable provided however that the Supplier shall be entitled to deduct, in the event of cancellation of an order by a Purchaser, the whole value of work completed in relation to the Contract and consequential costs relating to the order.

3.1         The description of the Goods shall be as set out in the Supplier's Quotation Document.

3.2         All drawings, descriptive matter, Quotations and advertising issued by the Supplier and any descriptions or illustrations contained in the Supplier's catalogues or brochures are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods described in them. They will not form part of this Contract.


4            PRICE AND PAYMENT


4.1         The price for the supply of goods and services shall be the price set out in the Quotation Document.   If the price is not specified in the Quotation Document it shall be the standard price charged for such products by the Supplier fixed at the date of delivery of the Goods.

4.4         Invoiced amounts shall be due and payable in accordance with any Payment Schedule contained within the Quotation Document or Agreement for Sale and Purchase. If neither the Quotation Document or the Agreement for Sale and Purchase do not provide for the time of payment then payment of invoiced amounts is due immediately on issue of invoice. The Supplier shall be entitled to charge interest on overdue invoices from the date when payment becomes due from day to day until the date of payment at a rate of 2% per annum above the base rate for overdrafts charged by the ANZ Bank Limited.

5            DELIVERY


5.1         The date of delivery specified by the Supplier is an estimate only. Time for delivery shall therefore not be of the essence of the contract and the Supplier shall not be liable for any loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the goods.




6.1         Title in the Goods shall not pass to the Purchaser until the Supplier has been paid in full for the Goods.

7.1         The parties may at any time mutually agree upon and execute new Quotation Documents. Any alterations in the scope of goods and/or services to be provided under this Agreement shall be set out in the Quotation Document, which shall reflect the changed goods and/or services and price and any other terms agreed between the parties.

7.2         The Purchaser may at any time request alterations to the Quotation Document by notice in writing to the Supplier. On receipt of the request for alterations the Supplier shall, within five working days or such other period as may be agreed between the parties, advise the Purchaser by notice in writing of the effect of such alterations, if any, on the price and any other terms already agreed between the parties.

7.3         Where the Supplier gives written notice to the Purchaser agreeing to perform any alterations on terms different to those already agreed between the parties, the Purchaser shall, within five working days of receipt of such notice or such other period as may be agreed between the parties, advise the Supplier by notice in writing whether or not it wishes the alterations to proceed.

7.4         Where the Supplier gives written notice to the Purchaser agreeing to perform alterations on terms different to those already agreed between the parties, and the Purchaser confirms in writing that it wishes the alterations to proceed on those terms, the Quotation Document shall be amended to reflect such alterations and thereafter the Supplier shall perform this Agreement upon the basis of such amended terms.

8.6         If the Goods are not of an acceptable quality, the Purchaser must return the Goods to the Supplier within 5 working days of delivery to the Purchaser.   Within 15 working days of return, the Supplier must either replace the same, or refund the Price (if already paid).

8.8         The Purchaser must use the Goods in a reasonable manner having regard to their nature.
