Terms and Conditions

All prices (unless specified) exclude freight and GST, and are subject to change without notice (Error & Omissions Excepted).

Agreement

PB Technologies Ltd agrees to sell and the Customer agrees to buy the goods ordered through PB Technologies Ltd.

Acceptance

By placing the order for goods through PB Technologies Ltd you are deemed to accept the terms and conditions of sale.

Price

The purchase price is for goods supplied and packed, and is exclusive of installation and maintenance.

The price you pay will be increased by the amount of GST, other taxes and duties which may be applicable and insurance/freight/handling charges (except to the extent already expressly included in the price).

We can revise our prices at any time prior to accepting your order.

Purchase prices are given in New Zealand dollars unless otherwise stated.

You are bound to pay us the price once we accept your order. A quotation does not give rise to a binding contract until you place an order which we subsequently accept.

Payment

If you have been given a credit term account, payment will be due by the 20th of the month following the date of invoice. Otherwise you purchase must be paid for before we can deliver the goods to you.

We can impose a credit limit on you at any time, and alter it at our discretion with effect from the date that we notify you of such change. If you exceed your credit limit, we can refuse to supply goods to you.

If we at any time consider your credit worthiness to be unsatisfactory we can require security for payment.

You cannot withhold payment or make any deductions from any amount you owe us without our prior written consent.

Delivery

Where we agree to transport the goods to a specified place, we will deliver, or arrange delivery of, the goods to that place. Except where otherwise agreed, you will pay for all resulting transportation costs.

If no place of delivery is specified, delivery shall take place at the time when the goods are made available for despatch at our premises.

We can deliver the goods by instalments, and each instalment shall be treated as a separate contract.

Any time stated for delivery is an estimate only. No claim shall be made by you on account of late shipment, or delivery however caused.

All freight charges shall be at your cost unless otherwise agreed and stated.

Returns and Cancelled orders

All goods to be returned must have a Goods Return Authority issued by us. The issue of a Goods Return Authority does not guarantee that we will accept the return.

Changing your mind / purchasing the wrong product by mistake: If you change your mind after making a purchase, or realise you have purchased the incorrect item, you can enjoy the peace of mind that we offer a 7 day exchange policy (excludes special order items). If there is not a suitable product that can be exchanged for your returned item you will be offered a credit on your account or gift card based on the value paid at the time of purchase. Please note, items purchased on finance cannot be exchanged for a gift card. To exchange a product, goods must be sealed / unopened, with packaging in original condition, and we will need to be notified within 7 days of purchase / delivery. Special order items are excluded and cannot be returned / exchanged.

Incorrectly supplied products: If you have been accidentally supplied the wrong product, PB Tech will supply the correct product (where it is available) or issue a credit / refund. In order to supply the correct product, the incorrect product will first need to be returned to us. PB Tech can arrange the collection of the incorrect product by courier if you purchased online. In this scenario we will need to be notified within 7 days of purchase / delivery and the incorrect product supplied must be in resalable / unused condition.

Products damaged in transit: If your product has been damaged during transit to your delivery address we will replace your product or issue a credit / refund where a suitable replacement is not available. You most notify us within 24 hours for returns of this nature so we can arrange the collection of your product by courier if you purchased online.

Products that are faulty upon arrival / first use: If the product you received is faulty upon arrival / first use, PB Tech will either repair or replace your product, or issue a credit / refund where a suitable replacement is not available. In order to repair, replace or issue a credit / refund for your faulty product, it will need to be returned to us so we can test and confirm that it is faulty. All returns of this nature must be made within 14 days of purchase / delivery and we can arrange the collection of your product by courier if you purchased online.

Products that are faulty within the warranty period: If your product is faulty or has stopped working as intended and is still within the warranty period specified when you purchased your product, PB Tech will repair or replace your product or issue a credit / refund where a suitable replacement is not available. In order to repair, replace or issue a credit / refund for your faulty product, it will need to be returned to us so we can test and confirm that it is faulty. You may also be able to contact the manufacturer directly to arrange a repair / replacement. Returns of this nature can be made any time within the warranty period and it is your responsibility to cover any costs of returning the product to us.

Testing fees and return freight: If you return a product to us that is not faulty, you may be liable for a testing fee and freight charges to return the product to you.

Restocking fees: In some special circumstances including when products are sold to wholesale customers, we may agree (at our discretion) to accept a return of a product that is not faulty. In these situations there will be a handling fee equal to at least 20% of the goods value. Delivery, service and assembly fees are not refunded at all.

Faulty goods will be subject to the normal return procedures for the specific brand being returned.

Freight charges will not be credited under any circumstances.

You will be liable for all delivery and insurance charges incurred in respect of returned goods.

Risk and ownership

Risk of any loss, damage or deterioration of or to the goods passes to you on delivery, or if you state to leave goods at certain location, at the time goods are placed there.

Ownership of the goods remains with us and does not pass to you until you pay all amounts you owe to us or resell the goods in accordance with these terms.

While ownership of the goods remains with us:

You must store them separately or clearly identify them as belonging to us.

We authorise you in the ordinary course of your business to use the goods or sell them for full consideration. This authority is revoked from the earlier of the following:

- we deem your credit to be unsatisfactory;

- the occurrence of an Event of Default; or

- the time that we notify you in writing that this authority is revoked.

We can enter the premises where the goods are stored and remove them without being responsible for any damage caused in doing so. We can resell any of the goods and apply the proceeds of sale in reduction of amounts you owe to us.

If you resell or use the goods before ownership of the goods has passed to you, the proceeds of such sale or use shall be received and held by you (in whatever form) in trust for both you and us. Our interest as beneficiary under that trust shall be that portion of the proceeds which does not exceed all amounts you owe us. You will be entitled to the balance of the proceeds.

We can bring an action for the price of the goods sold even where ownership of the goods may not have passed to you.

Guarantees

Where the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 ("Act") applies:

If the goods are acquired by you for business purposes you agree that the Act does not apply.

If you onsupply goods you must:

- do so on the basis that the Act does not apply where the goods are on*supplied for business purposes; and

- notify consumers that neither we nor any manufacturer undertake that repair facilities or spare parts will be available.

You acknowledge that no Express Guarantees (as defined in the Act) are provided.

If a claim is made directly against us by a consumer under the Act then you will refund to us the amount of any damages (up to the value of the margin you made on the goods in question) we are required to pay to that consumer under the Act.

Nothing in these terms is intended to have the effect of contracting out of the provisions of the Act except to the extent permitted by the Act.

Except as otherwise required or prevented by laws including the Consumer Guarantees Act, Fair Trading Act, Sale of Goods Act and other Government legislation, or except as expressly provided under these terms, we are not liable for any claim in relation to any goods we supply to you (including as a result of negligence or otherwise) and all representations, guarantees, warranties (PB Care excluded) and terms of whatever nature are completely excluded.

Repairs and replacements

We do not undertake that repair facilities and parts will be available for the goods. We will not be liable to repair or replace any defective goods and at our own discretion we may:

- notify the manufacturer of the goods of any defect notified by you; and

- request the manufacturer to repair or replace any defective goods.

Default

If you do not pay the price by due date, we may charge a default penalty at a rate of 2.5% per month calculated on a daily basis on the unpaid portion of the price from the due date until payment in full, plus any GST.

You will, on demand, pay to us any amount we incur (including solicitors and collection agency costs, court costs and disbursements) in recovering payment of any overdue account.

If an Event of Default occurs, we may suspend or terminate any contract with you.

If an Event of Default occurs, all amounts you owe us shall immediately become due and payable notwithstanding that the due date has not arisen.

An "Event of Default" means an event where:

- you fail to comply with the terms of any contract with us; or

- you commit an act of bankruptcy; or

- you enter into any composition or arrangement with your creditors; or

If you are a company:

- you do anything which would make you liable to be put into liquidation; or

Upon termination we will be entitled to repossess and resell any unpaid goods within the term of terms risk and ownership. Termination shall not relieve you from any liability or responsibility that has arisen before the date of termination.

Other agreements

These terms apply to all transactions where we supply goods to you.
