The following words and expressions shall have meanings hereby assigned to them except where the context otherwise requires: Sitevision Limited (“Sitevision”), "us", "we" and "our" means Sitevision Limited; "Service", means your Information Technology services provided by Sitevision to customers subscribing for the same; "Client " and "You" means the party or parties who enters into this agreement with Sitevision.
Sitevision will contract to sell and supply goods and services on these Terms and Conditions of Trade and the Credit Account Application only (together, the “Contract”). By placing or confirming an order with Sitevision, the client is accepting these Terms and Conditions of Trade, and anything to the contrary in the clients’ enquiries, orders or confirmations will not apply. The Contract supersedes any prior negotiations, agreements or undertakings between the parties and any waivers or variations to the Contract are only effective if made in writing and signed on behalf of Sitevision.
These Terms and Conditions of Trade apply to all “business customer” sales only. That is, sales to a client which acquires goods and services from Sitevision for the purposes of business use.
Orders must be in writing and addressed to Sitevision. The client may not cancel or vary an order once it has been placed or confirmed without Sitevision’s written consent. Sitevision has no obligation to enquire into the authority of any person placing orders on the client’s behalf.
No order submitted by the client shall be deemed to be accepted by Sitevision unless and until it is confirmed in writing by Sitevision’s authorised representative.
All prices quoted by Sitevision are exclusive of GST unless specified otherwise. If GST is payable, it is payable by the client. Sitevision reserves the right to alter the prices quoted in a quotation or tender provided to the client for the supply of goods or services (“Quotation”) to reflect increases or decreases in procurement costs which may have come to its notice after the date of the Quotation. In addition, Sitevision reserves the right to withdraw or amend a Quotation unless the client has given written acceptance of the Quotation to Sitevision within the time period specified in the Quotation. If no period for acceptance has been specified, the Quotation will be open for acceptance for fourteen days from the date of the Quotation.
In some instances prices provided by Sitevision within a Quotation may be calculated on the basis of a project or package of items. Variations in the scope of a project or package, or to project timescales, may affect the pricing of individual components and Sitevision reserves the right to adjust the prices contained within the Quotation accordingly.
The client must pay the price indicated on the invoice or other document or statement issued by Sitevision.
All freight, packaging and other relevant costs (if any) are charged to the client’s account as shown on the invoice.
Payment for goods and services supplied by Sitevision to the client is due in accordance with the terms stated on the relevant invoice, or as otherwise agreed in writing.
Where no payment terms are stated on the invoice, payment will be due on delivery of the goods or the provision of the services being Cash On Delivery.
If payment is not received by the invoices due date, services may be suspended or terminated. If an account is Suspended the FULL balance of the account is due before services can resume. Fees may apply for resuming suspended services.
If at any time Sitevision deems the credit of the client to be unsatisfactory, it may immediately terminate this contract or any other credit arrangements and require the client to pay the price on delivery of the goods or services. All costs and expenses of, or incurred by, Sitevision as a result of the termination and recommencement of any credit arrangement are payable by the client upon demand.
Sitevision may charge interest on any moneys which are overdue under this Contract, commencing on the due date until the date of actual payment. The interest charged will be 2.5% per month calculated on a daily basis on the overdue amount until all amounts owed by the client are paid in full. The charging of interest does not imply the granting or an extension of credit. The client agrees to pay, on demand, all costs (including legal fees) incurred by Sitevision or Sitevision’s agents relating to the recovery of any amounts payable by the client to Sitevision.
All payments by the client must be made in full and without any deduction or right of set off or counterclaim. The client agrees, however, that all moneys which Sitevision may owe the client on any account whatsoever may, at Sitevision’s option, be set off against payments due by the client to Sitevision.
Overdue accounts referred to our debt collection agency will incur all costs of collection pursuant to the Fair Trading Act, 1986.
Credit Card Chargebacks or dishonoured payments made via Automatic Payments or Direct Debits will result in immediate suspension of services.
Sitevision may at any time and without notice to the client cancel, reject, or refuse to continue providing service without providing any reason for such rejection or refusal at any time prior to, or after, offering its services. This right will not be unreasonably exercised.
Where Sitevision rejects, or refuses to continue providing service, the client will still be liable to pay any outstanding fees up to the date of termination.
The client acknowledges that Sitevision (or its suppliers) are the sole owners or licensors of all intellectual property (including business know-how, methodologies, ideas, routines, systems and processes) relating or arising (directly or indirectly) to the client; or as otherwise developed or contributed to by Sitevision (or its suppliers) in relation to any information, fault, repair or documentation that Sitevision supplies to the client, or as a result of Sitevision performing services or any other work for the client.
The client covenants that any material provided by the client to Sitevision, and the use of it by Sitevision, for the purpose of supplying goods or services does not infringe any trade mark, copyright, patent, trade secret or any other proprietary right of any third party.
Delivery of goods is deemed to be complete when made at the client’s premises or any other premises agreed to in writing by Sitevision. On delivery, the goods are at the client’s sole risk and with effect from the time of delivery, and in accordance with clause 8 of these Terms and Conditions of Trade, the client will have in place all risks insurance to cover both its interest as bailee of the goods and Sitevision’s interest as owner of the goods.
Sitevision may choose the carrier and the method of transport, unless otherwise agreed by Sitevision in writing, and it may choose to deliver by instalments and may treat each delivery as a separate Contract. Should Sitevision fail to deliver or make defective delivery of one or more instalments, this will not entitle the client to repudiate the Contract.
If Sitevision believes that the client failed not make any payment when due, then it may suspend or cancel any delivery and Sitevision shall not be held liable for non-delivery or late delivery (however caused), or failure to deliver by any specific method, means or vehicle.
In consideration of Sitevision supplying the Goods and Services on account, the Guarantor(s) personally guarantees jointly and severally payment upon demand of all monies owed by the client from time to time to Sitevision.
The Guarantor(s) agrees to indemnify us at all times against all damages, claims, costs (including all legal costs), losses and expenses which we may suffer or incur as a breach by the client of their obligations under this Contract.
The Guarantor(s) further agrees:
Title to ownership (both legal and equitable) in all goods delivered by Sitevision to the client does not pass (and the client is a bailee only in respect of those goods) until payment in full is made for all such goods and other goods supplied by Sitevision to the client. Until property has passed, the client will store all goods in such a way that they are clearly identifiable as the property of Sitevision.
Until the client has paid Sitevision in full for all goods supplied, the client may not sell (unless such sale is in the ordinary course of the client’s business), dispose of, or charge the goods and must hold or deal with the goods for and on behalf of Sitevision. However, if the goods are sold in the ordinary course of the client’s business, prior to property passing to the client, the proceeds of that sale are held by the client on trust for and on behalf of Sitevision.
Prior to the client acquiring full property in the goods, Sitevision or Sitevision’s agents may at any time enter upon any land, premises or property where it believes such goods may be to view and inspect them, and if the client has not paid for them in full retake possession of the goods.
30 days’ notice is required for cancellation of services and must be made in writing. Cancellations without notice will continue to be billed accordingly for the remainder of the notice period. All charges will cease at the end of the 30 day notice period. No part credit or refund will be issued.
