2. QUOTATIONS, DESCRIPTIONS AND PURCHASE ORDERS
2.1 Supply of some of the Products for resale by you may be subject to additional conditions imposed by the manufacturer of the Products and not set out in these terms and conditions. If this is the case, we will provide you with the manufacturer’s conditions at the earlier of your expression of interest in supplying those Products or your first order of those Products. We will not supply Products to you unless you have also accepted any applicable manufacturer’s conditions. Nothing in these conditions grants you a right to receive Products where you have not accepted the relevant manufacturer’s conditions.
2.2 Your orders must be in writing with a full description of your requests for the Products or Services (or both), the requested date and location of Delivery and must set out a unique order number that is acceptable to us. Where there is no nomination of a location of Delivery the Agreed Basis will apply to your order. Where there is no requested date or period for Delivery then we will Deliver within 14 days of the date we accept your order.
2.3 No quotation given by us constitutes an agreement to supply or provide (or to Deliver) the Products or Services referred to therein. All quotations are subject to these Terms. If you wish to purchase Products and/or Services referred to in a quotation you must make an order within the specific period stated in the quotation. If the quotation is given without specifying a period within which you are to make an order, then the quotation shall lapse 48 hours after we send the quotation.
2.4 We may from time to time provide advice, recommendations and statements with respect to the Products and/or Services. To the extent permitted by law:
(a) we do not warrant or guarantee the accuracy or completeness of that advice, those recommendations or statements or the results obtained through the use of the Products or application of the Services;
(b) we expressly disclaim any liability for any damage to you from reliance on such advice, recommendations or statements; and
(c) such advice, recommendations and statements are relied on by you at your own risk and you should make other appropriate enquiries having regard to your circumstances.
2.5 Each order by you is an offer to purchase Products and/or Services from us subject to these Terms. No order is binding on us unless and until we accept that order in writing. We need not accept any order. These Terms are not an express or implied offer by us to supply any good or service to you.
2.6 Once received by us, your order cannot be cancelled without our written consent (even if we haven't accepted the order yet). In the event we consent to cancellation of an order, you will be charged an administrative fee of $100.00 plus the amount of any costs or damages flowing from your cancellation, including but not limited to repair costs, re-stocking costs, freight costs, damages for loss of profits and/or costs to replace stock damaged beyond repair.
2.7 We may accept your order in whole or in part.

3. DELIVERY
3.1 We will make all reasonable efforts to Deliver all Products or Services to you as advised under clause 2.1 and in one delivery (or the minimum number of deliveries required to fulfil that Delivery). Dates or periods specified for Delivery shall not be of the essence. If Delivery as advised under clause 2.1 becomes commercially impractical for us (in our reasonable opinion) then we may Deliver the Products to a commercially reasonable substitute Delivery location selected by us. We will not be liable for any loss or damage (including not being liable for consequential, special, punitive, incidental, indirect or economic loss or damage or loss of profits or opportunity) arising or resulting (directly or indirectly) from:
(a) any delay in Delivery;
(b) part or multiple Deliveries; or
(c) any failure to Deliver.
3.2 If you are unable to accept Delivery, we have complete discretion to resell or resupply the Products and/or Services to a third party and you will be liable for any loss incurred by us on that resale or resupply, as well as all storage, Delivery and other logistics costs and any other costs incurred by us in doing so. If any of the Products, become damaged or are otherwise unsaleable (“Damaged”) as a direct or indirect result of you declining or delaying or being unable to accept Delivery, you shall indemnify us for all costs and expenses incurred by us in connection with the Damaged Products.
3.3 You must check all Delivery volumes against the delivery documentation and:
(a) where credit terms apply, if you do not dispute it within 2 days, we are entitled to rely on that documentation in issuing any subsequent tax invoice; and
(b) where 'cash on delivery' applies, you are deemed to accept that volume is correct.
3.4 You must also inspect all Products Delivered and advise us of any claimed defects in them or their packaging or storage or other dispute.
3.5 If you do not notify us of any shortage, dispute or defect within 2 days, those Products are deemed to have been delivered by us and accepted by you in compliance with these Terms.
3.6 In no circumstances do we Deliver on a consignment or similar basis. Delivery must be within Australia to an agreed business address.
3.7 In the event that Products are returned, you will be charged an administrative fee of $100.00 plus the amount of any costs or damages flowing from the return, including but not limited to repair costs, re-stocking costs, freight costs, damages for loss of profits and/or costs to replace stock damaged beyond repair.

4. RISK AND TITLE
4.1 Risk in all Products and Services passes to you on Delivery even though title may not. You are solely responsible for the storage, insurance and application or on-sale of Products at and after Delivery.
4.2 Title in all Products remains with us until such time as full payment is made in cleared funds for all amounts owing by you to us for all Products and Services Delivered by us from time to time. We may insure Products up to the time of Delivery or the passing of title to you, but you must not assume that we will take out any such insurance.
4.3 You acknowledge that until full payment for all Products and Services Delivered (together with any interest under these Terms) is made, you:
(a) hold all Products as our bailee and you further acknowledge that a fiduciary relationship exists between us and you for this purpose;
(b) must keep the Products fully insured and shall hold the proceeds of insurance, if any, for and to our order until payment is made in full;
(c) you must keep the Products stored separately from all other goods and keep the Products insured for replacement cost and identified (in a way that is obvious to others) as our property; and
(d) must not pledge or in any way charge or encumber the Products by way of security for the indebtedness of you or any other person.
4.4 Until such time as title in the Products passes to you, we are entitled to require you at any time to deliver up the Products to us (or as we direct) and if you fail to immediately do so, we may enter any premises under the control of you or your agent where the Products are stored and repossess them. Clauses 4.3 and 4.4 do not apply to the extent that you on-sell the Products in an arm's length transaction (during the ordinary course of your business) to a bona fide third party that is not in any way related to, or subject to similar control to, you and, if sold, are sold for market value. However, any proceeds from, or asset comprising an amount payable to you by, that third party in respect of that sale or on-sale are held by you as a fiduciary and on trust for us to the extent their value does not exceed the amount you owe us under these Terms.

5. PRICE AND TAXES
5.1 Unless we have agreed in writing with you a fixed price or fee (or basis for determining such) before or when we accept your order (if we do so), our list prices and fees charged by us at the date of your order apply, and such prices and fees are subject to alteration without notice prior to us accepting your order (unless we state otherwise in our acceptance), or where Delivery is delayed by you, and at our discretion, our list prices and fees charged by us at the date of Delivery apply.
5.2 You are also liable for and responsible to pay all taxes (including any sales, value added or like impositions), levies, duties or fees in respect of each Delivery.
5.3 Unless otherwise specified by us, any reference to an amount payable or consideration to be provided for a Delivery to be made by us that is governed by or otherwise connected with these Terms is a reference to that amount or consideration excluding applicable GST.
5.4 The amount to be paid or other consideration to be provided to us for any taxable supply we make that is governed by or otherwise connected with these Terms must be increased by an amount equal to any GST that we are or will become liable to pay in respect of that supply so that we retain after payment of GST the amount which we would have been entitled to receive but for our obligations to pay GST.
5.5 If you or we are required (in connection with these Terms) to pay the other by way of a reimbursement or indemnification, calculated by reference to a loss, cost or expense incurred by that other, then the payment must be reduced by the amount of any input tax credit to which that other is entitled for that loss, cost or expense.
5.6 If a Sales Tax other than GST applies, you are liable for it and must pay it provided that if the law requires that we pay it then the same principles as are set out in clauses 6.2 to 6.4 will apply in respect of it so that in effect you bear the burden of it.
5.7 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all references to amounts of money are references to amounts in Australian currency.

6. INVOICING, PAYMENT AND DEFAULT
6.1 Clause 6.3 does not apply to you to the extent we have extended credit to you (in which case payment of our invoices must be made in accordance with the terms of that credit, whilst it continues to be available to you).
6.2 We will provide a tax invoice for the relevant price and fees applicable to each Delivery prior to, at or after the time of that Delivery.
6.3 Payment of all tax invoices must be made on receipt in full without deduction, set-off or counterclaim. You must give us written notice within 14 days of receiving our invoice if you believe that the invoice is not correct. Your notice must include full details of the error(s) claimed by you. If an invoice is disputed and that dispute cannot be immediately resolved, we can withhold or defer Delivery pending resolution or part-Deliver the undisputed component. You must make payment of the undisputed amount due on any disputed invoice on the due date. Upon the dispute being resolved, you will immediately pay to us (within 3 working days) the amount due.
6.4 If:
(a) you default in any payment due to us (including under these Terms) or we conclude that you are likely to, including where you are unable, or state that you are unable, to pay your debts as and when they fall due or where a receiver, receiver and manager, controller, trustee or other insolvency administrator is appointed, or a scheme of arrangement is proposed or approved in respect of you or a mortgagee enters into possession of any of your assets or any similar situation occurs; or
(b) you are otherwise in breach of these Terms, the terms and conditions of any credit we extend to you (including where you exceed the credit limit we have allowed you) or any other agreement between you and us,
then we may, at our option:
(i) withhold the relevant Delivery together with any further proposed deliveries or cancel any accepted order without notice to you and without prejudice to any other action or remedy which we have or might otherwise have had;
(ii) by notice to you, with immediate effect, terminate any and all rights (whether express or implied) that you may have or believe that you have to place further orders under these Terms;
(iii) reclaim our Products in your possession or control and may enter the premises where we believe the Products are kept in order to do so; and/or
(iv) recover from you the cost of repossessing and disposing of the Products or attempting to do so;
and all monies owing and outstanding by you to us on any account whatsoever become immediately due and payable (without the requirement for notice from us) and you must pay for any subsequent Deliveries prior to or at Delivery. We will not be liable to you for any losses you incur as the result of our exercising any of our rights under this clause
6.5 If we believe that we have rights under clause 7.4, you must promptly and reasonably respond to any enquiry from us to clarify this.
6.6 Without in any way limiting our right to require payment in full on the due date, we may charge interest on overdue accounts at the rate 2% above the overdraft rate charged by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia from time to time. Interest will accrue daily and compound monthly from the due date until payment has been received by us in cleared funds. Payments by you will be applied first to interest accrued and then to the overdue amount.
6.7 Any collection charges, legal expenses (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and commissions or any other expenses incurred by us in attempting to recover from you any payment due to us is payable by you to us on demand by us.
6.8 If you owe us money for any reason and we owe you money in connection with these Terms, we may set off the amount you owe us against the amount that we owe you and pay you the resulting net amount.

7. PPS LAW ASSURANCES
7.1 If these Terms (or a transaction in connection with them) are or contain a security interest under the PPS Law, you agree to do anything (such as obtaining consents, completing, signing and producing documents and supplying information) which we consider necessary for the purposes of:
(a) ensuring that the security interest is enforceable, perfected and otherwise effective;
(b) enabling us to apply for any registration, or give any notification, in connection with the security interest so that it has the priority required us; and
(c) enabling us to exercise any power in connection with the security interest.
7.2 Without limiting any other provision of these Terms, you agree to waive your right to receive any verification statement (or notice of any verification statement) in respect of any financing statement or financing change statement relating to any security interest created under these Terms.
8. OUR WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF OUR LIABILITY
8.1 Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in these Terms, these Terms do not exclude or limit the application of any statute (including the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 or equivalent or similar legislation) where to do so would:

(a) refund the price of those Products or Services (or offer credit where payment has not then been made); or
