Nothing in these terms and conditions of sale limits, excludes or modifies or purports to limit, exclude or modify any statutory consumer guarantees or any implied condition or warranty the exclusion of which from these terms and conditions of sale would contravene any statute or cause any part of these terms and conditions of sale to be void (“Non-Excludable Guarantees”).

Except for liability in relation to a Non Excludable Guarantee. the Company (including its officers, employees and agents) excludes all liability whether arising in tort (including without limitation negligence), contract or otherwise, for any personal injury or any other loss or damage (including without limitation loss of opportunity or loss of profits); whether direct, indirect, special or consequential.

(a) the Company warrants that all goods sold are free from defects in materials and workmanship at the time of despatch by the Company. Modifications to the goods ordered by the Purchaser, or any of their components, could significantly affect their performance or conformance to their applicable specifications. Any modifications of the goods, or any of their components, other than as performed or authorised in writing by the Company, will invalidate and terminate our warranty for the goods, effective on the date of any such modification.

- the Company will be under no liability whatsoever to the Purchaser in respect of any representations or terms not expressly set out herein or otherwise set out in writing and signed by a duly authorised representative of the Company.
- if the Purchaser has, notwithstanding the provisions of this clause 6, any claim for damages against the Company at law (including without limitation direct, indirect, special or consequential loss or damages) in respect of a Non-Excludable Guarantee, and the Company is able to limit the Purchaser's remedy for a breach of a Non-Excludable Guarantee, then the liability of the Company for breach of the Non-Excludable Guarantee is limited to, at the Company's option:
(i) the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods;
(ii) the repair of the goods;
(iii) the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods;
(iv) the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired;
(v) the supplying of the services again; or

You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
7. RISK AND TITLE
(a) Unless otherwise agreed in writing and signed by a duly authorised representative of the Company all risk in and of and for the goods will pass to the Purchaser immediately upon despatch of the goods by the Company to the Purchaser.
(b) Unless otherwise agreed in writing and signed by a duly authorised representative of the Company ownership in the goods will not pass to the Purchaser until the Purchaser has discharged all outstanding indebtedness to the Company whatsoever.
(c) The Purchaser must notify the Company if it has entered or enters into any finance arrangement in respect of the goods purchased under these terms and conditions of sale.
(d) Until payment in full of such indebtedness has been made the Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that:
- All goods supplied by the Company to the Purchaser are to be held by the Purchaser as bailee and trustee for the Company and if to be sold by the Purchaser to be so sold as agent for and on behalf of the Company subject to a duty to pay to the Company all the proceeds of any such sale;
- The Purchaser must if directed by the Company store the goods supplied in such a way that it is clear that they are the property of the Company;
- The Purchaser hereby irrevocably authorises and licences the Company and its agents and servants without the necessity of giving any notice to enter on and into and upon any premises occupied by the Purchaser to search for and remove any of the goods in which the Company has ownership as aforesaid without in any way being liable to the Purchaser or any person or company claiming through the Purchaser. If the goods or any of them are wholly or partially affixed to or incorporated in any other goods the Company may where practical disconnect or sever in any way whatsoever as may be necessary to remove the goods.
- If the Purchaser has resold any goods prior to payment in full of the outstanding indebtedness of the Purchaser to the Company then the proceeds of such resale will be the property of the Company (but only to the extent necessary to discharge such outstanding indebtedness).
- This clause is intended to protect the Company in the event of default in payment by the Purchaser or the insolvency of the Purchaser.
- The Purchaser acknowledges and grants the Company a security interest for the purposes of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 ("PPSA") in the goods and any proceeds from goods supplied to the Purchaser and acknowledges the Company's rights in the goods are a 'purchase money security interest' ("PMSI") and the Company will have a PMSI in the proceeds of those goods. The Purchaser will do everything reasonably required of it by the Company to enable the Company to register its security interests with the priority the Company requires and to maintain those registrations including signing any documents and/or providing any information which the Company may reasonably require to register a financing statement or a financing change statement in relation to a security interest or to correct a defect in a statement. The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Company does not need to give the Purchaser any notice under the PPSA (including notice of the single financing statement or verification statement) unless the notice is required by the PPSA and that requirement cannot be excluded and if the Company is required to give a notice to the Purchaser under the PPSA, and the Purchaser may, under the PPSA, waive the Purchaser's right to receive that notice, then the Purchaser hereby waives that right. If Chapter 4 of the PPSA would otherwise apply to the enforcement of the security interests created under these terms and conditions of sale, the Purchaser agrees that sections 95, 120, 121(4), 125, 128, 129, 130, 132(3)(d), 132(4), 134(1), 155, 142 and 143 of the PPSA will not apply to the enforcement of those security interests. Unless otherwise stated, a term contained in this clause that is defined in the PPSA (but not otherwise defined in these terms and conditions of sale) has the meaning given to it in the PPSA.

(d) The Company will not be obliged to accept return of any goods unless:
- within 7 days of the receipt of goods by the Purchaser the Company receives at its Sydney office a written request detailing the goods which the Purchaser seeks to return to the Company and the reason why the Purchaser seeks to return those goods and detailing the Company’s Invoice/Packing Slip number relating to the goods in question; and
