2.1. Application of this Agreement
(a) This Agreement applies to all transactions between the Customer and the Supplier relating to the provision of Goods, including all contracts and variations. This Agreement takes precedence over any terms contained in any document of the Customer or elsewhere.
(b) The variation or waiver of a provision of these terms or a party’s consent to a departure from a provision by another party is ineffective unless agreed to by the parties. The Customer agrees that such agreement may be provided by the Customer by continuing to order from the Supplier after receiving written notification from the Supplier of any variation or waiver of a provision of these terms.
(c) This Agreement should be read in conjunction with the Terms of Service (available here). To the extent that there is any inconsistency between the Terms of Service and the terms of this Agreement, then the terms of this Agreement shall prevail.
(a) The minimum order value is $250.00 plus GST, unless the Supplier indicates otherwise in writing. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities or value of goods purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.

(1) Goods are unavailable for any reason whatsoever;
(2) credit limits cannot be agreed upon or have been exceeded; or

(d) An Order cannot be cancelled by the Customer without the prior written consent of the Supplier. Where an Order is cancelled, the Customer indemnifies the Supplier against any Losses incurred by the Supplier as a result of the cancellation, including, but not limited to loss of profit from other orders foregone as a result of the scheduling of the Order which is subsequently cancelled. This clause shall not merge on completion.
The Customer may request that its Order be varied by providing a request in writing to the Supplier. A request for a variation must be agreed to in writing by the Supplier in order to have effect.
(a) The Customer must pay an invoice issued by the Supplier:
(1) If the Customer is a Credit Customer, within 30 days after the end of the month in which the invoice was issued; or
(2) Otherwise prior to the dispatch of the Goods.
(b) If any invoice is due but unpaid, the Supplier may withhold the provision of any further Goods until overdue amounts are paid in full.
(c) The Supplier may in its complete discretion apply any payment received from the Customer to any amount owing by the Customer to the Supplier.
(d) The Customer is not entitled to retain any money owing to the Supplier despite any default or alleged default by the Supplier of this Agreement, including (but not limited to) the supply of allegedly faulty or defective Goods, or a delay in the provision of Goods. Nothing in this clause affects the Customer’s rights for any alleged failure of a guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law.
(e) The Customer is to pay the Supplier on demand interest at the rate of 2% per month on all overdue amounts owed by the Customer to the Supplier, calculated daily, or $5.00 per month or part thereof, whichever is the greater.
(f) All costs and expenses associated with collecting overdue amounts, including (but not limited to) legal fees (on a solicitor-client basis) and internal costs and expenses of the Supplier, are to be paid by the Customer as a debt due and payable under this Agreement

The Dispute Notice will not be validly provided to the Supplier if it does not contain the invoice number of the respective Goods. Nothing in this clause affects the Customer’s rights for any alleged failure of a guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law.
(a) Risk in Goods passes to the Customer immediately upon dispatch from the Supplier. Insurance is available on request for an additional charge, but must be requested by the Customer at the time of the Order.
(b) Property in Goods supplied to the Customer pursuant to this Agreement does not pass to the Customer until all money (including money owing in respect of other transactions between the Supplier and the Customer) due and payable to the Supplier by the Customer have been fully paid.
(c) Where Goods are supplied by the Supplier to the Customer without payment in full of all moneys payable in respect of the Goods provided by the Supplier in respect of those Goods, the Customer:
(1) is a bailee of the Goods until property in them passes to the Customer;

The Customer indemnifies the Supplier in respect of any damage to property or personal injury which occurs as a result of the Supplier entering the Customer’s premises. This clause shall not merge on completion.
(d) Where Goods are supplied by the Supplier to the Customer without payment in full of all moneys payable in respect of the Goods provided by the Supplier, and the Customer makes a new object from the Goods, whether finished or not, or the Customer mixes the Goods with other goods or the Goods become part of other goods (New Goods), the Customer agrees with the Supplier that the ownership of the New Goods immediately passes to the Supplier. The Customer will hold the New Goods on trust for the Supplier until payment of all sums owing to the Supplier whether under this Agreement or any other contract have been made and the Supplier may require the Customer to store the New Goods in a manner that clearly shows the ownership of the Supplier.
(e) For the avoidance of doubt, under 7(d), the ownership of the New Goods passes to the Supplier at the beginning of the operation or event by which the Goods are converted into, are mixed with or become part of other goods.
(f) Despite clause 7(c) the Customer may transfer, sell or dispose of Goods, including New Goods, to a third party in the ordinary course of business provided that:

(2) where the Customer is not paid by a third party, the Customer agrees to assign all of its rights against the third party to the Supplier upon the Supplier giving the Customer notice in writing to that effect and for the purpose of giving effect to that assignment the Customer irrevocably appoints the Supplier as its attorney.
