    If (where applicable) the Customer has not made or notified the Company of arrangements for delivery, the Customer hereby authorises and requests the Company to nominate a carrier to take delivery of the goods from the Company on behalf and at the risk of the Customer for carriage to the Customer or as the Customer directs.  Arrangements for insurance of the goods are the responsibility of the Customer.  Where the Company nominates a carrier on behalf of the Customer, all freight and other carriage charges will be billed to the Customer.

    Any such claims must be made in writing to the Company and refer to and include a copy of the relevant invoice issued by the Company.

  15. SPECIFICATIONS
  16. The Company’s policy is one of continuous development, and the Company therefore reserves the right to improve, change, alter or discontinue specifications without prior notice.  All illustrations and samples are intended as approximate representations only and are not binding in detail with regard to finishes, colour, shades, materials, design and other specifications.  To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Company accepts no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage (including, without limitation, consequential loss or damage), directly or indirectly, arising out of or in connection with same.

  17. INSTALLATION AND USE
  18. Installation and fitting of goods by the Company is not included unless otherwise specifically indicated by the Company in writing. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Company takes no responsibility for the installation and fitting of goods other than goods which are installed or fitted directly by the Company.

    To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Company shall not be responsible or liable for any liability, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, for any injury, damage or loss whatsoever arising in any way in connection with the improper installation or fitting of goods or the use of such improperly installed or fitted goods (by the Customer or any third party), including (without limitation) direct, indirect, special or consequential loss or damage arising from claims by the Customer, third parties or otherwise, and the Customer shall indemnify and keep the Company fully indemnified from and against any and all suits, actions, claims, demands, losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses which may be made or brought against or suffered or incurred by the Company arising out of or in connection in any way as a result same.

  19. SPECIAL ORDERS
  20. Orders for specially ordered, made or customised goods or services may not be cancelled, deferred or varied by the Customer without the prior written consent of the Company.

    The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Company may require full or part payment with order, prior to production or delivery.

    In the event the scope, nature or extent of the work required to be undertaken by the Company to produce the goods or provide the services change (including, without limitation, as a result of the Customer not providing required specifications or other information in the prescribed form or within the required time frame, requesting special freight, provision of mock-up of goods, ordering special material, etc.) the Customer will be responsible for and pay for all extra costs and charges associated with the changes.

    The Company shall be entitled to increase the price for specially ordered, made or customised goods and services if there is an increase in the cost to the Company of supplying the goods or services due to changes in the costs of labour, materials, production, transport, duty, exchange rate fluctuations or other increases in the cost to the Company of supplying the goods or services.

    In the event the Customer provides the Company with specifications for the supply of goods or services by the Company for the Customer, the Customer warrants to the Company that the specifications and any goods or services supplied by the Company based on the said specifications will comply with all applicable laws relating to the supply of such goods and services and not infringe the trade mark, copyright, patent, design, other intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party, and the Customer shall indemnify and keep the Company fully indemnified from and against any and all suits, actions, claims, demands, losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses which may be made or brought against or suffered or incurred by the Company arising out of or in connection in any way with the use by the Company of the said specifications or the manufacture and supply of goods or services based on the said specifications.

  21. CUSTOMER MATERIALS
  22. The Customer shall be fully responsible for ensuring that it keeps and maintains duplicate originals or copies of any materials and other property which it provides to the Company.  Any such materials or property provided to the Company shall be held or used by the Company solely at the risk of the Customer, and subject to Clause 15 the Company shall not be under any liability of any nature whatsoever to the Customer  for loss or spoilage of, or damage to, such materials or property.

  23. POTENTIALLY DEFECTIVE GOODS PROCEDURE
  24. The Company asks that if the Customer believes that goods which have been installed or fitted may be the subject of a warranty provided by the Company or do not meet any applicable consumer guarantees provided by the ACL to the Customer to contact the Company’s Customer Service Department before the goods are attempted to be repaired, replaced or removed for return to discuss the nature of the issue and whether it is appropriate for the Company to attend the premises where the goods have been installed or fitted as this may allow the goods and the issue to be better assessed by the Company (bearing in mind that the extent and accuracy of the assessment will be dependent on the information provided to the Company) before the goods are attempted to be repaired, replaced or removed. The Company therefore suggests that the Customer provide the Company with as much information as possible in relation to the goods as the Company will be relying on that information in assessing the goods and the issue. If there is a legal obligation on the Company to repair or replace the goods, then the Company will do so.

    However, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that if the Customer requests the Company to attend the Customer’s premises (or the premises of any third party, including the premises of a customer of the Customer) and there is no legal obligation on the Company to repair or replace the goods, then the Customer will upon demand pay the Company the costs and charges incurred by the Company in organising for the premises to be attended and the goods to be assessed. For instance, if the goods have been improperly installed or are used with incompatible parts or components and there is no legal obligation on the Company to repair or replace the goods, then the Customer will upon demand pay the Company the costs and charges incurred by the Company in organising for the premises to be attended and the goods to be assessed.

  25. GOODS RETURN POLICY
  26. This Clause 13 only addresses goods which are damaged (prior to delivery), not the ordered goods, oversupplied or are the subject of a warranty provided by the Company and are not the subject of any applicable consumer guarantees provided by the ACL to the Customer.

    Goods may only be returned if they are damaged (prior to delivery), not the ordered goods, oversupplied or are the subject of a warranty provided by the Company.

    To the maximum extent permitted by law, no claims for damage will be entertained unless the goods are noted as being “damaged” on the delivery note at the time of delivery and the claim has been made within 30 days of delivery of the goods, failing which any such claim shall to the maximum extent permitted by law be deemed to be waived by the Customer.

    To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Company will not accept any goods (even, without limitation, if they are not the ordered goods or oversupplied) for return which have been altered, installed or fitted in anyway unless they are otherwise the subject of a warranty provided by the Company.  The Company therefore encourages the Customer to fully inspect and test all goods and services provided by the Company prior to goods being altered, installed or fitted.

    If the Customer wishes to return goods, the Customer must notify the Company’s Customer Service Department within 30 days of delivery of goods if they are damaged (prior to delivery), not the ordered goods or oversupplied and the goods must be returned to the Company at the Customer’s risk and expense in all things within 45 days of delivery of goods, failing which the basis for any such claim for return shall to the maximum extent permitted by law be deemed to be waived by the Customer.

    The Company may (but is not obliged to) accept goods that are not damaged, oversupplied or the subject of a warranty provided by the Company for return on terms and conditions determined by the Company in its absolute discretion, including (without limitation) that the goods are returned in “as new” and saleable condition free of any damage and the payment of any restocking fee charged by the Company.

    Goods returned to the Company will be at the Customer’s risk until such time as the Company’s staff takes possession of the goods at the Company’s premises. 

  27. RETURNS
  28. Before any goods may be returned the Customer must phone the Company’s Customer Service Department for authorisation of a case number (“Case Number”). Goods must be returned by and at the Customer’s expense in their original undamaged packaging (unless the goods are the subject of a warranty provided by the Company or do not meet any applicable consumer guarantees provided by the ACL (to the Customer) with a copy of the original invoice for the goods and the Case Number must be clearly marked on the outside of the box or other packaging in order for goods to be accepted by the Company’s staff.  Goods returned without a Case Number may not be accepted by the Company’s warehouse staff. The issue of a Case Number and acceptance of returned goods by the Company’s staff does not constitute acceptance by the Company of the Customer’s claim for return.

  29. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
  30. To the maximum extent permitted by law and subject to the following provisions of this Clause 15, the Company shall not be under any liability, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, for any injury, damage or loss whatsoever arising in any way in connection with the supply or use of the goods or from any services provided, including (without limitation) direct, indirect, special or consequential loss or damage of any kind arising from claims by the Customer, third parties or otherwise.

    If rights are conferred upon the Customer or obligations are imposed upon the Company by the ACL or other law which cannot be excluded, the provisions of this Clause 15 shall be read subject to those rights or obligations, and to the maximum extent permitted by such legislation the Company hereby expressly limits its liability under any such legislation to the maximum extent permitted by law.

    Subject to the preceding paragraph of this Clause 15, the Customer agrees that the liability of the Company (which cannot be limited beyond the following provisions) is limited to:

    1. in the case of the supply of goods, any 1 or more of the following (at the Company’s option):
      1. the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods;
      2. the repair of the goods;
      3. the payment of the costs of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods; or
      4. the payment of the costs of having the goods repaired; or
    2. in the case of the supply of services, any 1 or more of the following (at the Company’s option):
      1. the supply of the services again; or
      2. the payment of the costs of having the services supplied again.

    Without reducing the effect of, and subject always to, the preceding provisions of this Clause 15, in no event will the Company be responsible for alterations made to, or the removal, re-installation or re-fitment of, goods or services by or on behalf of the Customer, and the Company’s total aggregate liability (if any) to a Customer for any particular order for the supply of goods or services by the Company to the Customer will not, in any event, exceed the amount invoiced by the Company to the Customer for the said order.

  31. CODE OF CONDUCT
  32. The Customer represents, warrants and undertakes that

    1. the Customer and its affiliates and agents shall comply with the Company’s Code of Conduct (a copy of the code of conduct can be viewed at www.assaabloy.com) and all applicable laws and regulations, including anti-bribery laws, competition laws, sanctions and export control laws

    Until the price has been so paid:

    1. The Customer shall insure the goods for all outstanding amounts owing the Company in relation to the goods.

    4. The Company shall have the right, at any time and without prejudice to any other remedies:
      1. to enter without prior notice any premises where the goods may be without liability for trespass or any resulting damage, and to repossess any of the goods; and
      2. to require the Customer not to resell or part with possession of, otherwise dispose of, charge or otherwise encumber or in any way alter the goods until payment is made in full.

    The Company’s right to retain title of goods shall not affect its rights as unpaid seller.

    The Customer hereby grants the Company an irrevocable perpetual licence to sell all goods (including, without limitation, specially ordered, made or customised goods and goods which have been altered by or on behalf of the Customer) which are not paid for by the Customer, and the Customer warrants to the Company that the sale of such goods by the Company will not infringe the trade mark, copyright, patent, design, other intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party, and the Customer shall indemnify and keep the Company fully indemnified from and against any and all suits, actions, claims, demands, losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses which may be made or brought against or suffered or incurred by the Company arising out of or in connection in any way with the sale of such goods by the Company. The ability of the Company to sell such goods shall not affect its rights as unpaid seller.

  36. The Customer:

    1. agrees that these Conditions constitute a security agreement;
    2. agrees that all goods supplied by the Company to the Customer are Other Goods;

    4. further, and separately from the preceding provisions of this Clause 17:

    1. in the Other Goods; and also
    2. in the Other Property.

    If Chapter 4 of the PPSA would otherwise apply to the enforcement of a security interest in the Other Goods and/or the Other Property, the parties agree that each of the provisions of the PPSA which Section 115 of the PPSA permits parties to contract out of, other than Sections 117, 118, 123, 126, 128, 129 and 134 (1) of the PPSA, are contracted out of.

    The Customer waives its right to receive any notices required to be given by the Company to the Customer under the PPSA, except to the extent the requirement to give notices cannot be waived or excluded under the PPSA.

    The Customer agrees that all payments made by the Customer to the Company may be applied by the Company to obligations owing by the Customer to the Company in any manner as the Company sees fit.

    The Customer and the Company agree that the individual prices at, and the other terms of supply on, which Other Goods or services are supplied by the Company to the Customer are confidential and that except as required by the PPSA neither the Company nor the Customer will disclose those individual prices or other terms of supply.

  43. DISPUTES
  44. If a dispute arises in any way in connection with these Conditions, any orders placed by the Customer, any orders accepted by the Company or the supply of goods or services by the Company to the Customer, neither party shall start legal proceedings until the mediation procedure outlined in this Clause has been completed; provided however that this Clause shall not apply to disputes involving amounts owing by the Customer for goods or services supplied by the Company to the Customer or urgent interlocutory relief.

    The mediation procedure is:

    1. either party may start mediation by serving a written mediation notice on the other, stating briefly and clearly the nature of the dispute;
    2. when the other party receives the mediation notice, both parties must try to agree on a mediator. If they fail to agree within 21 days of service of the mediation notice, either party may apply to the President of the Law Institute of Victoria, Australia or his or her nominee for such purposes to appoint a mediator;
    3. the parties must request the mediator to make a determination as to the proportion each party should be responsible for the mediator’s fees (taking into account the nature and merits of the dispute) and the parties must comply with any such determination made by the mediator and account to one another at the conclusion of the mediation accordingly, and failing any such determination by the mediator each party must pay an equal share of the mediator’s fees;
    4. the mediation shall take place in Melbourne, Victoria;
    5. the parties must comply with the mediator’s instructions about the conduct of the mediation;
    6. if the dispute is settled by mediation, each party must sign the terms of settlement, which will bind the parties; and

    Any terms of settlement may be used in evidence in any court proceedings.

    The mediation procedure is confidential and:

    1. nothing the parties or the mediator say or do during the mediation procedure; and
    2. no documents concerning the dispute created for the mediation procedure,

    may be used in or required to be produced in any court proceedings.

  45. GST
  46. If prices published by the Company or included in an order by a Customer do not expressly indicate that the prices include GST (in the case of an order by a Customer, by express reference on the face of the order and not by incorporation or reference of conditions of purchase), then the Customer will be required to pay the Company the amount of the price for the goods and services plus GST and the following provisions of this Clause 22 shall apply.

    The consideration payable by the Customer for goods and services represents the value of any taxable supply for which payment is to be made.  If a taxable supply is made to the Customer, then the Customer must also pay at the same time and in the same manner as the value is otherwise payable the amount of any GST payable in respect of the taxable supply.

    Expressions used in this Clause 22 have the same meaning as those expressions in the GST Act.

  47. FORCE MAJEURE
