If anything in this document is inconsistent with something specifically agreed with you, or in Product Terms and Conditions, then the particular arrangement agreed with you in writing applies instead of the inconsistent part of this document to the extent of the inconsistency only.

 

2) ORDERS AND PRICING ERRORS

 

  1. All orders for Products placed by the Customer are subject to acceptance by Gratex, and no order will be deemed to have been accepted by Gratex unless Products are supplied or the order is confirmed in writing by an authorized representative of Gratex to the Customer.
  2. Once an order is placed, it cannot be withdrawn without our consent. Placing an order means that you are responsible for payment in full for that order.
  3. Gratex is not liable for pricing errors. If you place an order for a Product that was incorrectly priced, we will cancel your order and credit you for any charges. In the event that we inadvertently ship an order based on a pricing error, we will issue a revised invoice to you for the correct price and contact you to obtain your authorization for the additional charge, or assist you with return of the product. If the pricing error results in an overcharge to you, Gratex will credit your account for the amount overcharged.
  4. Orders may be placed by email and may be confirmed by email, and Gratex's determination of whether an order has been placed or confirmed by email shall be conclusive.
  5. Gratex shall be under no obligation to accept the return of any Product supplied, but if it does so in its absolute discretion, the Customer shall pay a restocking fee of 15% of the price of the Product.

 

3) PAYMENT

 

  1. The price of the Products will be Gratex's quoted price, subject to change by Gratex at any time prior to acceptance of the order.

  3. Hosted Products and Services are billed in whole months.
  4. Prices are exclusive of GST unless otherwise indicated, and the Customer must also pay the GST to Gratex when paying the balance of the price.
  5. Payment is required within 14 days of invoice to the Customer, unless agreed otherwise in writing by an authorized officer of Gratex. If the Customer fails to make payment in accordance with this clause after demand for payment by Gratex, all amounts owing by the Customer to Gratex on any account will immediately become due and payable.
  6. The Customer will be liable to pay interest on any overdue amount at the annual rate of 2% above the prevailing base lending rate quoted by the Westpac Banking Corporation. Interest will accrue daily from the date payment became overdue until Gratex has received payment of the overdue amount, together with any interest accrued.
  7. Unless stated otherwise in these Terms (or in writing by Gratex 's authorized representative), all prices quoted for Products are exclusive of installation, configuration, and all taxes, handling and delivery. Installation, configuration and freight charges and taxes must be paid by the Customer in addition to the price for the Products.
