Terms & Conditions

These are the terms and conditions on which Bluechip Infotech Pty Limited (“we” or “us” or “our”) is willing to trade with you. Please read these terms and conditions carefully as they have the effect of creating a PMSI under the PPSA. Any variation to these terms and conditions must be in writing and signed by an authorised officer of Bluechip Infotech Pty Limited.

1. Price
The price and description of the product you may offer to purchase from us (“our product”) is described in our price list. We may change the price list at any time without prior notice.

2. Payment
If you have a pre-approved account limit with us, our terms are strictly in accordance with our payment terms as separately agreed with you in writing, or where there is no separate agreement, 14 days from the date of invoice. If you do not have a pre-approved account limit, payment in advance by cash, cheque, EFT or credit card is required and must be paid within 48 hours of placing an order (failing which, we will be entitled to cancel the order without notice to you). Payments by cheque will not be considered received by us until the cheque is cleared by our bank. If any payment by you is dishonoured, you must pay us an additional account processing fee of $30.00.

An account processing fee will be charged, unless otherwise agreed, for payments made by credit card, up to 1% for payments made by Visa, Mastercard or Moneytech card and 2.2% for payments made by American Express.

3. Account Limit
We may at our absolute discretion agree to grant you a trade credit facility. If we agree to supply you a credit then normally we allow you to purchase and continue to purchase our product as long as the total of your account does not exceed the set limit. We may cancel the unused portion of your credit limit at any time at our absolute discretion.

If you wish to apply to increase the limit of your account, you agree that you will, at our request, provide us with further supporting documentation which may include (but is not limited to) any or all of the following:

  • satisfactory written trade references (which must not show any payments of more than sixty (60) days from the end of the month of delivery/rendering of services);
  • a satisfactory credit report from a credit rating agency acceptable to us; ? evidence that you have been incorporated for at least
    12 months;
  • a copy of your audited Financial Statements (which must not be more than 12 months old); and
  • a completed Checklist (attached).

In no circumstances are we obliged to accept any application for an increase in the limit of your account and we are not obliged to give you reasons for our decision.

If any account is overdue and is not settled within our trading terms, you agree that, in addition to any other right we may have, we may stop all sales and delivery of our product to you. You acknowledge that we may decline your application to purchase our products if we are advised by our credit insurers that they will not grant us appropriate cover in relation to you.

4. Government Charges
Our prices are shown net of GST but if GST is payable, it is to your account and must be paid at the same time as you pay for our product. We will give you a tax invoice.

5. Acceptance and Delivery
We shall accept or reject orders placed by you (“Orders”) within seven (7) days after receipt of such order. We reserve the right to reject Orders in whole or in part and to propose alternative delivery dates. When we accept an Order, we will confirm the delivery date. You shall have the right to cancel some or all of an Order without incurring any liability to us if:

(a) any delivery is delayed by more then thirty (30) days after the confirmed delivery date;

(b) such delay is solely attributable to our default;

(c) the on-sale by you of the products the subject of that part of the Order which you are seeking to cancel has been terminated or cancelled by your customer solely as a result of such delay; and

(d) you have provided to us whatever documents and other evidence we require to satisfy us of the matter referred to in paragraph (c)

Such right of cancellation shall be your exclusive remedy and our sole liability for its failure to meet a delivery date. You shall be liable for all costs arising out of any agreement (including any breach thereof) arranged by us on your behalf for carriage of the products the subject of the cancelled Order.

All products shall be sold by us ex-our warehouse. You shall arrange carriage of the products from our warehouse unless we agree to arrange carriage on your behalf.

6. Risk
The products shall be your risk immediately upon delivery to the carrier at our warehouse, regardless of whether the carrier is arranged by us or you.

7. Ownership
You do not own any of our product in your possession until all of our product you have purchased from us at any time and all other amounts owing by you to us on any account have been paid for in full. You agree that we have a security interest in the product and further agree that we are entitled to register a security interest over the product, and you agree to do all things necessary and execute all documents reasonably required by us to register the security interest.

Until you have given us full payment, you promise to store and deal with our product in a way that it is clearly identifiable as ours. You grant us an irrevocable licence to enter your premises on any business day to inspect our product in your possession and your books and records regarding our product.

If you wish, you may promote and on-sell our product in the ordinary course of business even if ownership of our product has not passed to you. You will hold the proceeds of sale in trust and not by way of security, for and as agent for us in a separate account, you will pay the proceeds to us as soon as you receive them and we have the right to trace and claim such proceeds. You have no right to bind us to any liability to any third party by contract or otherwise.

If you use our product in some manufacturing or construction process of your own or some third party, you will hold such part of the proceeds as relates to our product in trust for us. Such part shall be deemed to equal in dollar terms the amount payable or owing by you to us at the time of the receipt of such proceeds. You will also keep separate records and clearly identify in your books your use of our product in such manufacturing or construction process.

8. Purchase Monies Securities Interest
You agree that these terms and conditions create a PMSI in the product (and its proceeds) supplied presently and in the future by us to you.

You agree to do all things necessary and execute all documents reasonably required by us to register the PMSI granted by you under these terms and conditions and to ensure that we acquire a perfected security interest in the product under the PPSA.

This PMSI does not lose its priority as a result of the renewal, refinance, consolidation or restructure of the subject matter of these terms and conditions and any purchase money obligations.

Until ownership of the product passes to you, you waive your rights under the following provisions of the PPSA, to the extent that it is permitted by law:

  • receive a notice of intention of removal of an accession (section 95);
  • receive a notice that we have determined to enforce its security interest in accordance with land law (section 118);
  • receive a notice of enforcement action against liquid assets;
  • receive a notice of disposal of product by us purchasing the product (section 129);
  • receive a notice to dispose of the product (section 130);
  • receive a statement of account following disposal of the product (section 132(2));
  • to receive a statement of account if no disposal of the product, six monthly (section 152(4));
  • to receive notice of any proposal by us to retain the product (section 135(2));
  • to object to any proposal by us to either retain and dispose of the product (section 137(3));
  • to redeem the product (section 142);
  • to reinstate the security agreement (section 143); and
  • to receive a notice of any verification statement (sections 157(1)) and 157(3)).

To the extent permitted by the PPSA, these terms and conditions exclude any provisions of the PPSA which may be excluded in our discretion and which would otherwise confer rights on you.

You further agree that where we have rights in addition to those under Part 4 of the PPSA, those rights shall continue to apply.

Your right to possession of goods still owned by us under these terms and conditions shall cease if:

(a) you being an individual, commit an act of bankruptcy, or,

(b) you being a Company, circumstances arise where a Receiver, Manager, Administrator or Controller becomes entitled to take possession of any of your assets, any proceedings are instituted for your winding up, or you enter into a Deed of Company Arrangement, or

(c) you cease or threaten to cease conducting business in the normal manner or apply for deregistration or receive a deregistration notice, or

(d) any cheque you provide us is dishonoured for payment, or

(e) you fail to comply with any demand for payment issued by us, or

(f) you breach any of the terms and conditions contained herein and/or are in default of any other agreement between us and you.

You agree that we are entitled to enter any premises where the product supplied by us and still unpaid for is located, repossess and sell such product. You agree to indemnify and keep us indemnified in respect of any claims, actions and costs that may arise against us in relation to the removal, repossession and sale of the product pursuant to these terms and conditions including any claims brought by third parties.

You agree that repossession and retention of the product pursuant to the PPSA will only satisfy so much of the monies which may become payable to us by you, as is equivalent to our estimation of the market value of the product as it is at the date of repossession and the repossession and retention will immediately extinguish any rights for interest you have on the product.

Until ownership of the product passes, you must not give us a written demand or allow any other person to give us a written demand requiring us to register a financing change statement under the PPSA or enter into or allow any other person to enter into the personal property securities register a financing change statement under the PPSA.

You agree not to change your name or undertake any changes to any documents that we have registered, require to be registered or are capable of being registered without our prior written consent.

9. Assignment
You must not assign any rights or benefits under these terms and conditions unless you have obtained our prior written consent. Any assignment by you without our consent shall entitle us to avoid any liability we may have to you under these terms and conditions.

10. Recovery
If at any time you owe us money on any account in excess of our trading terms then in addition to any other rights we have you agree we may enter any premises owned, possessed or controlled by you where our product is stored and remove our product. We are not liable to you if we take such action.

11. Claims
When we deliver our product to you, you must inspect it immediately. You must report any damage or incorrect supply within 3 business days of delivery otherwise we may refuse any claim you make.

All shipments shall be deemed to have been delivered without shortage in quantity unless you give written notice of such shortage to us within 3 business days after delivery to you provided, however that a receipt signed by you and given to the carrier acknowledging deliver of a quantity of products shall be prima facie evidence of the quantity delivered to you by us. Upon verification by us of the shortage in delivery, we shall deliver the shortfall products to you as soon as practicable unless the parties agree for the shortfall Products to be delivered as part of the next scheduled shipment.

All claims for damage and/or defect in products shall be subject to the manufacturers warranty conditions and any warranty terms that we may have agreed to with you. If our product is damaged or “dead on arrival” when we deliver it to you we may accept its return and replace it with an equivalent product or credit you with the price paid, at our option. If our product is returned to us as “dead on arrival” but is found to be in working order when checked by our engineers, you must pay us a 10% restocking fee or $50.00 which ever is the greater. In all circumstances our product must be in its original packaging and proof of purchase must be supplied. If you have a dispute with us, we will not respond to you until you have notified our credit department in writing of your dispute prior to the due date of your payment for our product.

You agree that you shall make no claim against us for any delay in delivery or any product delivered to you “dead on arrival”. You agree that you must satisfy yourself that products purchased by you are fit for their intended purpose. We make no warranty that any products supplied by us shall be fit for any particular purpose and shall have no liability in this regard.

12. Overdue Accounts
Any account which is not settled within agreed terms may attract interest at the aggregate of the business overdraft rate (however described) for sums not exceeding $100,000 charged by Westpac Banking Corporation and 2%. You agree that any discounts, rebates or other concessions are lost if payment is not made in time. If you are in breach of any of our terms and conditions you agree that you are also responsible for all of our expenses of any kind including our legal costs on a solicitor client basis and any commission or other expense incurred by any debt collection agency we retain to recover the monies you owe us.

We shall have the right to commence legal proceedings against you for the recovery of any account that is overdue.
