3.1 Subject to clause
3.2, all Goods will be delivered by the carrier nominated by the Supplier to the place specified by the Purchaser.
3.2 Delivery shall be made by the route and method the Supplier considers appropriate to the place indicated on the order form or, if no place of delivery is specified, delivery shall be made at the Supplier’s premises and shall take place at the time when the Goods are made available for despatch at the Supplier’s premises. If the Purchaser fails or refuses, or indicates to the Supplier that it will fail or refuse, to take or accept delivery, then the Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered when the Supplier was willing to deliver them.
3.3 For any of the Goods requiring urgent despatch due to the Purchaser’s request, or where a more expensive route is demanded, the Supplier reserves the right to charge the difference between the normal freight used and the additional freight cost to meet that delivery request.
3.4 Non-receipt of any of the Goods must be notified within seven days of the date of invoice or advice of despatch, whichever is earlier, otherwise credit for such Goods will not be allowed.
3.5 The Supplier reserves the right to deliver the Goods by installments and each installment shall be deemed to be a Contract.

3.6 Without prejudice to any other rights and remedies which it may have, the Supplier may charge storage and transportation expenses if the Purchaser fails or refuses to take or accept delivery or indicates to the Supplier that it will fail or refuse to take or accept delivery at the time specified in the Contract or at any other times that the Supplier is able to deliver the Goods.

4.2 The Contract Price excludes GST, which is to be added to the Contract Price and paid by the Purchaser.

5.2 By agreeing to these terms and conditions and by accepting the Goods on credit in accordance with clause 5.1, the Purchaser authorises the Supplier to make enquiries as to the credit and financial history of the Purchaser, including but not limited to, by obtaining such reports from credit reporting agencies as may be required by the Supplier from time to time. Any credit offered under clause 5.1 may be conditional upon the Purchaser’s directors giving personal guarantees in relation to the Purchaser’s obligations and their consent for the Supplier to make such enquiries as to their personal and commercial credit and financial history, including, but not limited to, by obtaining such reports from credit reporting agencies as may be required by the Supplier from time to time.
5.3 The Supplier reserves the right to terminate the Purchaser’s credit account at any time. Upon such event, all amounts payable for Goods sold shall become due for immediate payment. In the event of such termination, the Supplier may require security for payment and may suspend performance of its obligations under the Contract until the provision of sufficient security. Such termination shall be without prejudice to any other rights the Supplier may have, and the Purchaser will not be entitled to any compensation in respect of such termination.
5.4 The Purchaser agrees to pay to the Supplier, or at the Supplier’s direction, all reasonable collection costs, including commissions and legal charges on a solicitor and client basis, on all moneys outstanding on its credit account should the Purchaser breach any of these terms and conditions of sale and action be taken by or on behalf of the Supplier to recover the debt.
5.5 The Purchaser shall not be entitled to withhold payment or to make any deductions from the Contract Price without the prior written consent of the Supplier.

All Goods returned to the Supplier must be accompanied by a copy of the packing slip or invoice together with a valid Credit Request (“RMA”) number (which may be obtained from the Supplier’s Customer Services department).

6.7 In respect of returns, the Purchaser must comply with the following procedures:
(a) Contact the Supplier within 14 days of invoice date to obtain the RMA number.
(b) Pack the Goods to be returned securely and write the RMA number on the packaging near the address label. The Purchaser must not mark the packaging on any of the Goods to be returned.

7. RISK AND INSURANCE
7.1 The risk in Goods purchased shall, unless otherwise agreed in writing, pass to the Purchaser upon delivery or his agent or to a carrier commissioned by the Purchaser.
7.2 While the Goods continue to secure the Purchaser’s indebtedness and obligations, the Purchaser shall keep the Goods insured in the names of the Supplier and the Purchaser for their respective rights and interests and will produce to the Supplier upon demand such evidence as the Supplier may require to confirm the existence of such insurance.

7.3 If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed while those Goods continue to secure the Purchaser's indebtedness and obligations, the Supplier shall be entitled, without prejudice to any of its other rights or remedies under the Contract to receive all insurance proceeds which are payable in respect thereof (whether or not the purchase price of such Goods has become payable under the Contract) and the production of the Contract by the Supplier shall be sufficient evidence of the Supplier’s right to receive payment of such insurance proceeds without the need for further enquiry by any person dealing with the Supplier. Any such insurance proceeds shall be applied by the Supplier as follows:
(a) first, in payment of the Contract Price of the Goods which are damaged or destroyed, if unpaid;
(b) secondly, in payment of the outstanding Contract Price of any other Goods supplied to the Purchaser by the Supplier, whether under the Contract or otherwise;
(c) thirdly, in payment of any other Amount Owing or other moneys payable to the Supplier by the Purchaser whether under the Contract or otherwise;

For the purposes of section 36(1)(b) of the PPSA, and to ensure maximum benefit and protection for the Supplier by virtue of section 36(1)(b)(iii) of the PPSA, the Purchaser confirms and agrees that the Purchaser intends to and does grant to the Supplier, as security for the Purchaser’s indebtedness and obligations, a security interest in all of the Purchaser’s present and after-acquired property except only for any such property which is or comprises items or kinds of personal property (“excepted property”);
(a) in or to which the Purchaser has rights; and
(b) which has not been supplied by the Supplier to the Purchaser, other than any excepted property which is or comprises proceeds of any of that present and after-acquired property which has been supplied by the Supplier to the Purchaser.
8.2 The Supplier authorises the Purchaser to sell or lease, in the ordinary course of business of the Purchaser, any Goods that are comprised in the Purchaser’s inventory, provided that:
(a) such authority may be revoked by written notice from the Supplier at any time if the Supplier deems the credit of the Purchaser to be unsatisfactory or if the Purchaser is in default in the performance of its obligations under the Contract or any other contract between the Supplier and the Purchaser, and shall be deemed automatically revoked if the Purchaser shall commit any act of bankruptcy, enter into any composition or arrangement with its creditors, or (in the case of a company) do any act which would render it liable to be wound up or if a resolution is passed or proceedings commenced for the winding up of the Purchaser or a receiver is appointed in respect of all or any assets of the Purchaser; and
(b) until the Purchaser's indebtedness and obligations have been repaid or fulfilled, the Purchaser shall hold such part of the proceeds it receives from any sub-sale of the Goods under this clause
