1. Delivery of Goods
    1. Delivery (“Delivery”) of the Goods is taken to occur at the time that:
      1. the Customer or the Customer’s nominated carrier takes possession of the Goods at the Seller’s address; or
      2. the Seller (or the Seller’s nominated carrier) delivers the Goods to the Customer’s nominated address even if the Customer is not present at the address.
    2. At the Seller’s sole discretion, the cost of Delivery is either included in the Price or is in addition to the Price.
    3. The Seller may deliver the Goods in separate instalments. Each separate instalment shall be invoiced and paid in accordance with the provisions in these terms and conditions.
    4. Any time specified by the Seller for Delivery of the Goods is an estimate only. The Customer must take Delivery by receipt or collection of the Goods whenever they are tendered for Delivery. The Seller will not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by the Customer as a result of Delivery being late. In the event that the Customer is unable to take Delivery of the Goods as arranged then the Seller shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for redelivery and/or storage.
  2. Risk
    1. Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to the Customer on Delivery and the Customer must insure the Goods on or before Delivery.
    2. If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following Delivery but prior to ownership passing to the Customer, the Seller is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by the Seller is sufficient evidence of the Seller’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with the Seller to make further enquiries.
    3. If the Customer requests the Seller to leave Goods outside the Seller’s premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location, then such Goods shall be left at the Customer’s sole risk.
    4. The Client acknowledges and agrees that Goods supplied may exhibit variations in shade, colour, texture, surface, veining, thickness, sizing, finish, may contain natural fissures, occlusions, lines, indentations and may fade or change colour over time. The Seller will make every effort to match batches of product supplied in order to minimise such variations but shall not be liable in any way whatsoever where such variations occur. It is the Client’s responsibility to inspect the Goods prior to installation and no claims will be accepted after installation due to any of the above variations.
    5. Any advice, recommendation, information, assistance or service provided by the Seller in relation to Goods and/or Services supplied is given in good faith, is based on the Seller’s own knowledge and experience and shall be accepted without liability on the part of the Seller and it shall be the responsibility of the Client to confirm the accuracy and reliability of the same in light of the use to which the Client makes or intends to make of the Goods and/or Services.
  3. Specifications
    1. The Client acknowledges that all descriptive specifications, illustrations, drawings, data, dimensions, ratings and weights stated in the Seller’s or the manufacturer’s fact sheets, price lists or advertising material, are approximate only and are given by way of identification only. The Client shall not be entitled to rely on such information, and any use of such does not constitute a sale by description, and does not form part of the contract, unless expressly stated as such in writing by the Seller.
    2. The Client shall be responsible for ensuring that the Goods ordered are suitable for their intended use.
  4. Title
    1. The Seller and the Customer agree that ownership of the Goods shall not pass until:
      1. the Customer has paid the Seller all amounts owing to the Seller; and
      2. the Customer has met all of its other obligations to the Seller.
    2. Receipt by the Seller of any form of payment other than cash shall not be deemed to be payment until that form of payment has been honoured, cleared or recognised.
    3. is further agreed that, until ownership of the Goods passes to the Customer in accordance with clause 9-i:
      1. the Customer is only a bailee of the Goods and must return the Goods to the Seller on request;
      2. the Customer holds the benefit of the Customer’s insurance of the Goods on trust for the Seller and must pay to the Seller the proceeds of any insurance in the event of the Goods being lost, damaged or destroyed;
      3. the Customer must not sell, dispose, or otherwise part with possession of the Goods other than in the ordinary course of business and for market value. If the Customer sells, disposes or parts with possession of the Goods then the Customer must hold the proceeds of any such act on trust for the Seller and must pay or deliver the proceeds to the Seller on demand;
      4. the Customer should not convert or process the Goods or intermix them with other goods but if the Customer does so then the Customer holds the resulting product on trust for the benefit of the Seller and must sell, dispose of or return the resulting product to the Seller as it so directs;
      5. the Customer irrevocably authorises the Seller to enter any premises where the Seller believes the Goods are kept and recover possession of the Goods;
      6. the Seller may recover possession of any Goods in transit whether or not Delivery has occurred;
      7. the Customer shall not charge or grant an encumbrance over the Goods nor grant nor otherwise give away any interest in the Goods while they remain the property of the Seller;
      8. the Seller may commence proceedings to recover the Price of the Goods sold notwithstanding that ownership of the Goods has not passed to the Customer.

        2. register any other document required to be registered by the PPSA; or
        3. correct a defect in a statement referred to in clause 10-iii-a-01 or 10-iii-a-02;
      2. indemnify, and upon demand reimburse, the Seller for all expenses incurred in registering a financing statement or financing change statement on the Personal Property Securities Register established by the PPSA or releasing any Goods charged thereby;
      3. not register a financing change statement in respect of a security interest without the prior written consent of the Seller;

      5. immediately advise the Seller of any material change in its business practices of selling the Goods which would result in a change in the nature of proceeds derived from such sales.

    5. The Customer waives their rights to receive notices under sections 95, 118, 121(4), 130, 132(3)(d) and 132(4) of the PPSA.
