(c) The Client acknowledges that the Supplier is only responsible for parts that are replaced by the Supplier, and in the event that other components subsequently fail, the Client agrees to indemnify the Supplier against any loss or damage to the machine, Goods, or caused by the components, or any part thereof howsoever arising.
(d) The Supplier shall not be liable for the loss of or damage to the equipment, its accessories or contents while being serviced or being operated in connection with the authorised Services, unless caused by the negligence of the Supplier or the Supplier’s employees.
(e) It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure that the equipment is insured against all possible damage (including, but not limited to, the perils of accident, fire, theft and burglary and all other usual risks) whilst stored at the Supplier’s premises. The equipment is at all times stored and repaired at the Client’s sole risk.
(f) Where the Client has left any equipment with the Supplier for repair, modification, exchange or for the Supplier to perform any other service in relation to the equipment and the Supplier has not received or been tendered the whole of any moneys owing to it by the Client, the Supplier shall have, until all moneys owing to the Supplier are paid:
(i) a lien on the equipment;
(ii) the right to retain or sell the equipment, such sale to be undertaken in accordance with any legislation applicable to the sale or disposal of uncollected goods;
(iii) the lien of the Supplier shall continue despite the commencement of proceedings, or judgment for any moneys owing to the Supplier having been obtained against the Client.
(a) Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to the Client on Delivery and the Client must insure the Goods on or before Delivery.
(b) If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following Delivery but prior to ownership passing to the Client, the Supplier is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by the Supplier is sufficient evidence of the Supplier’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with the Supplier to make further enquiries.
(c) If the Client requests the Supplier to leave Goods outside the Supplier’s premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location then such Goods shall be left at the Client’s sole risk.
(d) Returns will only be accepted provided that:
(i) the Client has complied with the provisions of clause 10.1; and
(ii) the Supplier has agreed in writing to accept the return of the Goods; and
(iii) the Goods are returned at the Client’s cost within three (3) days of Delivery; and
(iv) the Supplier will not be liable for Goods which have not been stored or used in a proper manner; and
(v) the Goods are returned in the condition in which they were delivered and with all packaging material, brochures and instruction material in as new condition as is reasonably possible in the circumstances.
(a) Subject to the conditions of warranty set out in this sub-clause 18.3, the Supplier warrants that if any defect in any workmanship of the Supplier becomes apparent and is reported to the Supplier within twelve (12) months of the date of Delivery (time being of the essence) then the Supplier will either (at the Supplier’s sole discretion) replace or remedy the workmanship. The conditions applicable to the warranty given by this sub-clause 18.3 are:
(i) the warranty shall not cover any defect or damage which may be caused or partly caused by or arise through:
(A) failure on the part of the Client to properly maintain the Goods/equipment; or
(B) failure on the part of the Client to follow any instructions or guidelines provided by the Supplier; or
(C) any use of the Goods/equipment otherwise than for any application specified on a quote or order form; or
(D) the continued use of the Goods/equipment after any defect becomes apparent or would have become apparent to a reasonably prudent operator or user; or
(E) fair wear and tear, any accident or act of God.
(ii) the warranty shall cease and the Supplier shall thereafter in no circumstances be liable under the terms of the warranty if the workmanship is repaired, altered or overhauled without the Supplier’s consent.
(iii) in respect of all claims the Supplier shall not be liable to compensate the Client for any delay in either replacing or remedying the workmanship or in properly assessing the Client’s claim.
(b) For Goods not manufactured by the Supplier, the warranty shall be the current warranty provided by the manufacturer of the Goods. The Supplier shall not be bound by nor be responsible for any term, condition, representation or warranty other than that which is given by the manufacturer of the Goods.
(c) The conditions applicable to the warranty given on Goods supplied by the Supplier are contained on the “Warranty Card” that will be supplied with the Goods.
(d) In the case of second-hand Goods, unless the Client is a consumer under the CCA, the Client acknowledges that it has had full opportunity to inspect the Goods prior to Delivery and accepts them with all faults. The Client acknowledges and agrees that the Supplier has agreed to provide the Client with the Goods and calculated the Price thereof in reliance of this sub-clause 18.3.
