Price and Payment

1. At TMD’s sole discretion the Price shall be either:

(a) as indicated on any invoice provided by TMD to the Customer; or

(b) TMD’s quoted prices (subject to clause 5.2) which will be valid for the period stated in the quotation or otherwise for a period of fourteen (14) days, unless earlier withdrawn. TMD reserves the right to refuse any Order based on any quotation within 14 days after the receipt of the Order.

Descriptive Matter, etc

1. The descriptions, illustrations and performances contained in any Descriptive Matter do not form part of the contract of sale or supply of the Goods or of the description applied to the Goods.  The Customer acknowledges that it has not relied upon any descriptions, illustrations and performances contained in any Descriptive Matter as an inducement into entering into any contract of sale or supply with TMD.

Performance

1. Any performance standards, figures or representations as to quality given by TMD are estimates only. TMD is under no liability for damages for failure of the Goods to attain such performance standards, figures or quality unless specifically warranted in writing. Any such warranties are subject to recognised tolerances applicable to such performance standards figures or quality.

Delivery

1. TMD will not be liable for any loss, damage or delay occasioned to the Customer, its customers or any other person, arising from:

(a) late Delivery or non-Delivery, or late utilisation of the Goods.

(b) any actions or Obligations conducted or incurred by the Customer in reliance on any expected Delivery date.

2. The Customer must accept Delivery of the Goods in accordance with any Order or in any other manner determined reasonable in the circumstances by TMD.

3. If the Customer fails to accept Delivery of the Goods, the Customer will be liable for any costs or damages incurred by TMD on account of such failure to accept Delivery.

4. The Customer waives any claim for shortage of any Goods Delivered if a claim in respect of short Delivery has not been lodged with TMD within 48 hours from the date of Delivery.

5. Should the Customer fail to provide sufficient instructions to enabling Delivery of the Goods to the Customer, TMD may arrange for suitable storage and insurance until the Goods are Dispatched. Charges for storage, insurance, transport and other incidental costs may be charged by TMD to the Customer.

6. Delivery of the Goods to a third party nominated by the Customer is deemed to be Delivery to the Customer.

Risk

1. The risk in, and all attached liability for damage to, the Goods passes to the Customer at the point of Despatch of the Goods even if TMD Delivers the Goods itself or TMD’s premises are the intended Delivery location.  The Customer must insure the Goods on or before Delivery.

2. If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following Delivery but prior to ownership passing to the Customer, TMD is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by TMD is sufficient evidence of TMD’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with TMD to make further enquiries.

Loss or damage in transit

1. TMD is not responsible to the Customer or any person claiming through the Customer for any loss or damage to Goods in transit caused by any event of any kind by any person (whether or not TMD is legally responsible for the person who caused or contributed to that loss or damage).

(b) lodges a claim for compensation upon the carrier within three (3) days of the date of receipt of the Goods.

Defects, Warranties and Returns

1. The Customer must inspect the Goods on delivery and must within 48 hours of delivery notify TMD in writing of any evident defect/damage, shortage in quantity, or failure to comply with the description or quote. The Customer must notify in writing any other alleged defect in the Goods as soon as reasonably possible after any such defect becomes evident. Upon such notification the Customer must allow TMD to inspect the Goods.

2. Under applicable State, Territory and Commonwealth law (including, without limitation the CCA), certain Non-Excludable Conditions may be implied into these terms and conditions.

3. Nothing in these terms and conditions purports to modify or exclude the Non-Excludable Conditions.

4. Except as expressly set out in these terms and conditions or in respect of the Non-Excluded Conditions, TMD makes no warranties or other representations under these terms and conditions including, without limitation, as to the quality or suitability of the Goods. TMD’s liability in respect of these warranties is limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.

(a) the Customer failing to properly maintain or store any Goods;

(c) the Customer continuing the use of any Goods after any defect became apparent or should have become apparent to a prudent operator or user;

(d) the Customer failing to follow any instructions or guidelines provided by TMD or a manufacturer; or

(e) fair wear and tear, any accident, or act of God.

(a) it has had full opportunity to inspect the second hand Goods prior to delivery and accepts them with all faults;

14. Except as provided in these terms and conditions and to the maximum extent permitted by law, all express and implied warranties, guarantees and conditions under statute or general law as to merchantability, description, quality, suitability or fitness of the Goods for any purpose or as to design, application of the Goods, materials or workmanship or otherwise are expressly excluded.

15. TMD is not liable for any loss of income, loss of profits, loss of markets, loss of reputation, loss of customers, loss of use, loss of opportunity, loss of business, loss of reputation or goodwill, loss of value or use of intellectual property or other proprietary rights even if TMD had knowledge that such loss or damage might arise or for any other indirect, incidental, special or consequential loss or damage howsoever arising out of the manufacture, sale or supply of the Goods including, without limitation, TMD’s breach of contract, negligence, wilful act or omission or other default.
