Unless otherwise agreed it shall be the customer’s responsibility to uplift and arrange and pay for transport of goods from CSP premises and to arrange any insurance and CSP shall not be liable for any loss or damage to the goods during such transport even although such loss or damage may be caused by CSP’ negligence or other default.

14. If CSP is to deliver the goods to the customer it intends to use all reasonable efforts to do so on any delivery date specified.

7: Security Interest And Contracting Out Of The Ppsa

CSP retains title to all goods (including goods paid for) supplied by it to the customer until all goods not paid for are paid for in full. In addition, the customer grants to CSP a security interest in all of the customer’s present and after-acquired property except goods supplied by CSP as security for the customer’s debt and obligations and for the avoidance of doubt this sentence applies to goods supplied in future and to “future advances” as that expression is defined in the PPSA. 18. CSP may allocate or re-allocate amounts received from the customer in any manner it determines, notwithstanding any purported allocation by the customer.

8: Seizure And Sale

If after any due date money remains owing to CSP, CSP (acting as the customer’s agent) may enter the customer’s premises or the place where the goods are and seize the goods and to dispose of them as CSP sees fit and to apply any proceeds or the value of the goods at the time of seizure towards the debt or the cost of satisfying the obligation. The customer hereby irrevocably authorises CSP or CSP’ agents to enter the premises of the customer to locate and seize the goods. 20. The customer waives the right to receive a copy of the verification statement confirming registration of a financing statement relating to any security interest under this contract and further waives its rights under sections 121, 125, 129, and 131 of the PPSA and further agrees that nothing in sections 114

(1)(a), 133 & 134 of that Act shall apply to this contract or the security under it.

9: Warranties

This contract assumes that products are required by the customer for business purposes, and if they are so required the customer agrees that pursuant to s43(2) of Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 (“the CGA”),that the CGA does not apply. If the customer on-sells any goods, then they shall ensure that it is a term of the sale contract that the CGA does not apply if the good are being acquired for business purposes by their customer. In the event of any such on-selling, whether the CGS applies or not, CSP and the customer agree that the customer is not acting as CSP’s agent.

    1. Liability for the claim or the representation is expressly confirmed by CSP in writing, and
    2. CSP’s liability under the claim shall not exceed the purchase price of the products.
  4. Any Written warranty given by CSP shall become a term of this agreement and be read together with this agreement.
  5. The Customer must indemnify CSP against the costs of any unsuccessful claim including ( without limitation) actual legal costs and disbursements charged on a solicitor and own clients basis costs, and CSP’s administration managerial and other internal costs
  6. If the customer alleges that goods are faulty and CSP determines that they are not, the customer will pay to CSP the cost of such determination including time and travel costs of any CSP staff member or contractor.
  7. In the event of any inconsistency between this contract (including any written warranty given by CSP), and the provisions of the Sales of Goods Act 1908 ( “SGA”), CSP and the customer agree pursuant to s56 of the SGA that the terms this contract (including any written given by CSP) shall prevail over any right, duty, or liability that would arise under a contract of sale by implication of law, whether under the SGA or otherwise.

10: Default

If the customer defaults, CSP may suspend or terminate the contract and in any event any waiver of rights for payment by 20th of the month pursuant to paragraph 9 hereof shall cease automatically. In addition if the customer does not pay the amount of any invoice by the due date:

  1. Default interest shall run at the rate of 3% per month compounding from the date of the invoice until payment in full so that such interest will continue after judgment and the right to interest shall not merge with the judgment. (b) Any discounts may be disallowed including discounts provided for in any invoice.
  2. The customer must pay to CSP upon demand the cost of any legal fees charged to CSP in pursuit of any unpaid debt of the customer and such fees may include additional fees or commissions charged by debt collecting firms and actual legal costs and disbursements charged on a solicitor and own

No claim relating to Products will be considered unless made within forty-five (45) days of delivery. Goods will only be accepted for return undamaged and in original packaging. We reserve the right to apply a 10% re-stocking fee up to the value of the goods or $60, whichever is the lower.

The customer must, and warrants that it will:

  1. comply with all applicable laws in relation to the conduct of its business including laws relating to bribery and corruption
  2. ensure that its actions or omissions do not cause CSP to be in breach in breach of any applicable laws, and
  3. immediately notify CSP of any breach of this clause.

CSP may, without liability to the customer and without limitation to its rights pursuant to clause 23, immediately terminate this contract and any outstanding orders if the customer or any of its employees or representatives :

  1. are charged with any criminal offence in relation to bribery or corruption; or
  2. act in a manner which in CSP’s reasonable opinion, brings CSP into disrepute or
  3. act dishonestly, fraudulently or illegally or
  4. are in breach of this clause.

If a clause or part of a clause of this document can be read in a way that makes it illegal, unenforceable or invalid, but can also be read in a way that makes it legal, enforceable and valid, it must be read in the latter way. If any clause or part of a clause is illegal, unenforceable or invalid, that clause or part is to be treated as removed from this document, but the rest of this document is not affected

This agreement is governed by New Zealand law and the parties irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction of the New Zealand courts. However, this does not limit CSP’s rights to enforce this agreement against the customer or any judgment against the customer or against the customer’s real and personal property in any country where the customer or that property may be.

The customer consents to CSP sending commercial electronic messages to the customer at any fax or electronic address provided in the application or to such other fax or electronic address as the customer provides to CSP from time to time.
