Conditions of making an online purchase
These conditions apply except so far as they are inconsistent with any express agreement entered into between the Seller and the Buyer before the delivery
All products supplied are chargeable at the sale price ruling on the date of delivery. Such price shall reflect any tax, duty or other imposition in respect of the products (other than Value Added Tax). Value Added Tax, if applicable, will be charged separately.
Payment for supplies will be effected by cash on delivery or in accordance with terms established from time to time by the Seller. Interest on overdue amounts shall be payable at 3% above the base lending rate of the Seller’s Bankers.
Risk in the products shall pass to the Buyer on delivery but title on the product shall remain in the Seller until payment in full has been received by the Seller.
Notice of any claim for damage, defect, variance of quality or description, or shortage in quantity shall be given by the Buyer in writing to the Seller within three days after the goods are delivered or in the case of non-delivery of the whole of the consignment within three days after receipt of Invoice and such notice shall state where and when the goods may be inspected by the Seller. The giving of such notice shall be a condition precedent to any such claim and in respect of such damage, defect, variance or shortage the buyer shall be liable to pay for the full quantity of the goods to which the Invoice relates.
Subject to Clause 4, the Seller will replace at its own expense any products which differ in quality or description on delivery from the products agreed to be sold. All warranties and conditions expressed or implied by statute or otherwise are excluded and the Seller shall not be further liable in respect of injury loss or damage consequential upon the sale or delivery of the products.
The Seller shall not be responsible for any failure to make deliveries if fulfilment has been delayed, hindered or prevented by any circumstances whatsoever which are not within the Seller’s immediate control.
If the Buyer defaults on payment of monies due, the Seller shall have the right to enter upon any premises where the products are located and take possession of and remove same.
No agent or employee of the Seller is permitted to alter or vary these Conditions in any way unless expressly authorised to do so by the Seller. If the Buyer fails to adhere to these conditions, the Seller shall be entitled to stop further deliveries under accepted or partly completed orders.
The Seller does not accept responsibility for the dipping, checking or testing of the Buyer’s tanks. This, together with the obligation to see that the truck operator couples up with the correct feed on the buyer’s tank, rests entirely with the Buyers. The Buyer shall also be responsible for ensuring that the storage into which the delivery is made will accommodate the full quantity ordered.
The Seller’s measure of quantity shall be accepted by the Buyer and in the case of re-heating oil it shall correct at standard litres at 15 Degrees Celsius, the Seller’s reading of which shall be conclusive. The Seller does not accept any responsibility for discrepancies in the Buyer’s tanks, dip rod or other measuring devices. It is a condition of every bulk sale that the quantity shown by the Seller’s dip rod or other measuring device employed shall, for the purpose of accounts, be accepted by the Buyer as the quantity delivered.
The Buyer may be represented at the taking of the measurements in order to verify them if he so desires. If on delivery the Buyer or any representative of the Buyer, whether or not for the purpose of verifying the Seller’s measurements of quantity for the delivery, mounts any tank used on that delivery, the Buyer or his representative shall do so at his own risk and the Seller accepts no responsibility therefore.
All products supplied are sold exclusively for the Buyer’s own use and shall not be resold transferred or disposed of by the Buyer to any other person private or commercial unless the products were supplied by the Seller to the Buyer specifically for resale.
