Terms of Trade – Nutri-Dose NZ (2023) Ltd

  1. General
    • These Terms of Trade bind the Customer whether or not the goods have been supplied and/or installed and/or whether or not any services have been provided to the Customer by the Supplier before or after the date of the Trading Account Application. These Terms of Trade shall apply to the goods and/or services specified on any Order Form accepted by the Supplier and to all goods and/or services supplied to the Customer by the Supplier.
    • Unless details of payment for goods are specified on the Order Form completed by the Customer then the Customer will pay the Supplier’s account in full by the 20th day of the month following the date of invoice (‘the due date”). If payment details are specified on the Order Form completed by the Customer then the Customer will pay the Supplier’s account in respect of goods covered by the Order Form in compliance with the Order Form and “the due date” will be determined pursuant to the Order Form.
    • The Customer shall make all payments due in full in cleared funds on or before the due date without any set off or deduction whatsoever. If payment is not made in full in cleared funds to the Supplier on or before the due date:
  • The Customer (and the guarantor) are liable to pay penalty interest on the money owing at the rate of 3% per month; and

(ii)   The Customer (and the guarantor) are also liable to pay all the expenses and legal costs (on a solicitor/client basis) and/or debt collector’s fees and charges incurred by the Supplier in the enforcement or attempted enforcement of any debt owed by the Customer and/or the agreement between the Supplier and the Customer; and

(iii)  The Customer grants an irrevocable license to the Supplier to enter any premises occupied by the Customer to recover possession of the Supplier’s goods.

  • If the Customer fails to make any payment in cleared funds on or before the due date then without prejudice to any of the Supplier’s other rights the Supplier may:

(i)    Suspend or cancel deliveries of any other goods and/or provision of any services due to the Customer; and/or

(ii)   Appropriate any payment made by the Customer to such of the goods (or goods supplied under any other agreement with the Customer) as the Supplier may in the Supplier's sole discretion think fit.

  • The Supplier remains the owner of all goods supplied by the Supplier to the Customer prior to or subsequent to this agreement until payment is made in full to the Supplier.
  • Risk in the goods passes to the Customer on delivery to the Customer or the Customers agent and the Customer shall keep the goods comprehensively insured from that point. Delivery of goods to a carrier, either named by the Customer of failing such naming to a carrier at the discretion of the Supplier for the purpose of transmission to the Customer, is deemed delivery of the goods to the Customer.
  • The Supplier may issue proceedings to recover the price of the goods sold notwithstanding that title may not have passed to the Customer.
  • The Customer hereby disclaims any right to rescind, or cancel any contract with the Supplier or to sue for damages or to claim restitution arising out of any representation made to the Customer by any servant or agent of the Supplier and the Customer acknowledges that the Customer buys the goods relying solely upon the Customer’s own skill and judgment and that the Supplier shall not be bound by nor responsible for any term, condition, representation or warranty other than the warranty given by the manufacturer of the goods (as provided for in clause 3) which warranty shall be personal to the Customer and shall not be transferable to any subsequent purchaser.
  • These Terms of Trade and the completed Trading Account Application together with:
  • any Order Form(s) accepted by the Supplier; and/or
  • any relevant quotation by the Supplier and associated confirmation of quotation

constitute the entire agreement between the parties.

(c)   If the Supplier does provide and/or obtain any of the things referred to in clauses 2 (a) and/or (b) above then the Customer shall pay the costs of such things together with a reasonable mark up to compensate the Supplier for the time, effort and skill required to supply them.

(e)   The Customer shall at its cost keep the buildings and/or site where the goods are to be installed and all equipment, facilities and materials associated with the buildings and/or the site where the goods are to be installed insured against all usual risks and shall also at its cost hold and maintain public liability and contractors risk insurance in respect of the building, the site and/or any work being carried out thereon.  Such insurances shall be at the level that a reasonably prudent person in the Customers position would have them and shall cover loss or damage due to the act or omission of the Supplier, its directors, agents, contractors and employees.

3.     Warranty and Consumer Guarantees Act 1993

  • The Customer agrees and acknowledges that all supplies of goods and services from the Supplier are/will be acquired for the Customer’s business purposes and accordingly the provisions of the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 will not apply as between the Customer and the Supplier.
  • Equipment of the Supplier’s own design and manufacture is warranted free of defective workmanship and/or materials for a period of one year from the later of the date of delivery and the date of installation (where installation is by the Supplier). This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, faults due to misuse or failure to maintain (which include failure to comply with the Suppliers recommended operating procedures and/or maintenance/service programme), accident or accidental breakage or act of God. This warranty extends only to repair or replacement of defective goods. In addition, the warranty does not cover any travel or freight costs and these are payable by the Customer.
  • The Supplier warrants that all installations and servicing will be performed using the degree of skill and care customarily required in accordance with good professional and technical practices. The Supplier shall re-perform any installations and/or servicing that do not meet the required degree of skill and care provided that the Customer notifies the Supplier in writing of the alleged deficiency within one month of completion of the relevant installation and/or servicing and this shall be the limit of the Supplier’s liability in respect of such installations and/or servicing.  The Supplier shall not be liable for any deficiencies in any installations and/or servicing caused by design parameters stipulated by anyone other than the Supplier, information supplied by the Customer and/or by anyone under the Customers control or contract and/or work performed by anyone not under the Suppliers direct control.

  • The warranties set out above are to be read in conjunction with any “warranty card”, manual or notice supplied with the goods. If there are any inconsistencies between the warranties then the warranty contained in any “warranty card”, manual or notice supplied with the goods then that “warranty card”, manual or notice shall prevail.

The Supplier shall be under no liability whatsoever except for the express conditions conferring liability on the Supplier as detailed and stipulated in the manufacturers warranty.
