TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF TRADE- NEW ZEALAND

1. Binding terms and conditions
These terms and conditions shall apply to, and bind the Applicant (you or your, in these terms and conditions) in respect of, all sales and supplies by the Supplier to you, and all purchases by you from the Supplier, of goods and services, and all other transactions between the Supplier and you.

2. Orders and resulting contracts
(a) Orders for goods or services you place with the Supplier will only be accepted by the Supplier upon and subject to these terms and conditions, and no variation shall apply to these terms and conditions except with the written agreement of the Supplier or its authorised person.  Each order you place with the Supplier must identify the goods or services ordered, the quantity required and refer to a current written quotation (if any) issued by the Supplier to you pursuant to which the order is made.  The Supplier may, in its absolute discretion, accept or reject an order of yours.  It may also accept only part of an order.
(b) A contract shall be deemed to have been entered between you and the Supplier upon acceptance in writing by the Supplier of an order (or part thereof), whether such order is written or oral, from you, being a contract for the supply by the Supplier to you, and the purchase by you from the Supplier, of the goods or services which are the subject of the order (to the extent accepted by the Supplier), on and subject to these terms and conditions (contract).
(c) The Supplier may refuse at its discretion to sell or supply goods or services to you at any time, including whether or not part of a contract has been performed, where goods or services are unavailable for any reason, a non-complying order is received or you have defaulted under these terms and conditions.

3. Prices
All prices of goods and services supplied by the Supplier which are quoted in the Supplier's price lists and catalogues are exclusive of GST or any similar impost or tax, unless otherwise specified, and the prices are subject to change without notice. The Supplier reserves its right to invoice the goods or services sold at the revised prices if it so chooses.  Unless the price for particular goods notified by the Supplier to you is specifically Cityd to include GST or any similar impost or tax which may apply in any jurisdiction in respect of the goods, an amount equal to the GST or such other impost or tax is payable by you to the Supplier in addition to the price for those goods notified by the Supplier, when the Supplier invoices you for the additional amount.

4. Supplier's inability to supply
If, for any reason beyond the Supplier’s control, the Supplier cannot supply all of the goods or services under a contract, then the Supplier has the right to cancel all or part of that specific contract and you shall not have any claims against the Supplier for any type of compensation arising out of or in connection with the cancelled contract or the cancelled part of that contract (as applicable), and this is without prejudice to the rights of the Supplier to recover all monies owing to it by you in respect of the un-cancelled part of that contract and other contracts that have been fulfilled.  You must not cancel an order for goods or services after it has been placed with the Supplier, or cancel a contract, unless agreed to in writing by the Supplier. The decision of the Supplier to agree or not is at its total and unfettered discretion.

5. Return of goods
Without limiting clause 4 of these terms and conditions, you must not return any goods supplied by the Supplier to you or at your direction without:
(a) the consent of the Supplier first being obtained in writing, which must be given by an authorised officer of the Supplier; and
(b) a return authorisation number (RAN) being allocated by the Supplier for that authorised return (which it may do in its absolute discretion).
If the Supplier agrees to accept a return of goods and allocates a RAN to them, these goods must be returned to the Supplier at your sole expense in good and saleable condition (save for any defects for which the Supplier has accepted responsibility under clause 16), in which case the Supplier shall credit you the invoiced value of the returned goods.

(b) Nothing in these terms (particularly the clauses headed ("Return of Goods” and “Claims”) is intended to have the effect of contracting out of the provisions of the CGA where the CGA applies. Where the CGA applies, these terms are modified accordingly.

13. Delivery
(a) Delivery of goods supplied by the Supplier to you takes place at the time:
(i) the goods pass into your, your carrier's or your agent's exclusive physical control;
(ii) when you collect goods or arrange for their collection from the Supplier; or
(iii) when ownership of the goods has passed to you,
whichever is earliest time.
(b) Unless the Supplier agrees otherwise, you are responsible for all delivery costs.
(c) Any date for delivery of goods indicated by the Supplier is an estimated date for delivery only. The Supplier is not liable for any loss, including consequential loss or damage, however it arises, if goods are not delivered or supplied by that date. In no case will the Supplier be liable for any amount payable by you to a third party as a result of a failure or delay in delivery by the Supplier due to any cause whatsoever.
(d) If agreed by the Supplier, it will deliver goods you purchase from the Supplier to an address nominated by you. If the Supplier delivers goods, then:
(i) you must pay all freight, insurance and other charges associated with the delivery, and the Supplier may choose the mode of transport, carrier and insurer (if applicable); and
(ii) you or your representative must be present at the agreed place and time for delivery. If you or your representatives are not present, the Supplier may unload the goods at that place, in which case the goods will be deemed to have been delivered and the Supplier will not be responsible for any claims, costs or losses suffered by you.

14. Containers
(a) If it is necessary for the Supplier to order container(s) for the delivery of goods ordered by you, you will be responsible for complying with the relevant time limitations specified by each relevant shipping company for the hiring of the container(s). You acknowledge that normally, you will have (without being charged by the shipping company) 3 days from delivery of the goods to the relevant wharf to accept the goods, and then 7 days from the time of delivery to unload the goods from the container and de-hire the container for return to the shipping company.  These time periods are indicative only and subject to change by shipping companies without notice to you.
(b) Any costs incurred for lateness in acceptance, unloading and de hiring of the container are your sole responsibility and you acknowledge and unconditionally agree that you will indemnify the Supplier against, and be solely responsible for, those extra charges, if incurred by the Supplier and that you shall pay or reimburse those charges to the Supplier upon demand and without deduction or set off. As an indicator only, shipping companies may charge $NZD 120.00 per day for the first day and then NZD $240.00 per day thereafter by way of such extra charges. These rates are subject to change by shipping companies without notice to you.
(c) The Supplier is not responsible for advising you of actual shipping companies' fees and deadlines for the acceptance and unloading of goods and for the de-hiring and return of containers, and failure by the Supplier to so advise you will not entitle you to avoid or withhold payment of fees charged by shipping companies to the Supplier in respect of goods ordered by you.

15. Risk
(a) At all times from the time of delivery (as determined under clause 13(a)), goods supplied by the Supplier to you are at your risk of loss or damage and you are responsible for their safe custody. It is up to you to arrange your own insurance.
(b) If any such goods are damaged or destroyed prior to property in them passing to you, the Supplier is entitled, without prejudice to any of its other rights or remedies under these terms and conditions (including the right to receive payment of all the balance of the price for the goods) to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the goods. This applies whether or not the price has become payable under a contract. The production of these terms and conditions by the Supplier is sufficient evidence of its right to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with the Supplier to make further enquiries.

16. Claims
(a) When you take delivery of goods supplied by the Supplier, you must inspect them immediately and carry out any test that a prudent purchaser would carry out.
(b) Goods supplied by the Supplier will be considered to have been supplied and delivered in good condition unless you give the Supplier written notice of any damage or defect within 7 days after delivery.  If you give the Supplier this notice, you must:

(ii) during that period allow the Supplier and its agents access to any premises where the goods are kept for the purposes of inspecting the goods; and
(iii) not return the goods unless you comply with clause 5 of these terms and conditions, and with any directions the Supplier gives you concerning the goods.
(c) The Supplier is under no obligation to accept goods returned by you or that you claim are defective, and will do so at its discretion and then subject to you having complied with clauses 5 and 16(b).
(d) You agree that you will make no claim against the Supplier for any delay in delivery of goods or services.
