BUSINESS INFORMATION

Business Name: Optica Life Accessories Limited

DEFINITIONS In these terms: “Optica” means “OPTICA LIFE ACCESSORIES LIMITED”, its successors and assigns. “Customer” means the person, firm or company which has offered to purchase goods from Optica or to whom Optica has offered to sell the goods. An “Event of Default” means an event where:

–   the Customer fails to comply with the terms of this contract with the Optica or any related company of Optica; or

–   the Customer commits an act of bankruptcy; or

–   the Customer enters into any composition or arrangement with its creditors; or

–   if the Customer is a company; 

          - the Customer does anything which would make it liable to be liquidated; or 

          - a resolution is passed or proceedings commended for the Customer to be liquidated; or 

          - a receiver or statutory or official manager is appointed over all or any of Customer’s assets; or 

          - the ownership or effective control of the Customer is transferred without the written consent of Optica.

ORDERS Orders should be placed in accordance with Optica’s procedures as advised from time to time.  Receipt of any order from the Customer will be deemed to be acceptance by the Customer of these Terms of Trade, despite anything to the contrary in the Customer’s order.  Orders are irrevocable.  Optica will use its best endeavours to fulfil orders which have been confirmed by Optica, but shall not be liable for any failure to deliver or delay in delivery. Delivery of 10% more or less than the quantity of goods ordered by the Customer shall constitute performance of any contract, the amount under or over supplied to be deducted or charged for pro-rata. The unit price charged for deliveries of less than the amount ordered will be the quoted unit price for the number ordered, not the number delivered.

FREIGHT & PRICING All prices are in New Zealand Dollars (NZ$) and are exclusive of GST, Government charges and freight, which will be charged on all invoices in accordance with the relevant legislation at the time of supply. New origination charges are extra. If no quotation is given then Optica’s current price at the time of order will be payable. Optica reserves its right to modify its prices at any time, but undertakes that the prices applied will be those in effect at the time of the order, except in cases of typographical errors. In the event that an Optica product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, Optica reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products listed at the incorrect price, whether or not the order has been confirmed and payment made. If a credit card has already been charged for the purchase and the order is cancelled, Optica shall issue a credit to the credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price. All goods shipped will include freight charges relative to the cost of freighting the order from Optica to the Customer. Freight charges may vary or be included in the price of the goods dependent on the Customer and the terms of trade they have with Optica.


DELIVERY TERMS AND CONDITIONS Optica Life Accessories Limited sells its products out of their Christchurch warehouse, with the transportation costs and risks being borne by the purchaser. Products will be delivered at the delivery address indicated by the Customer as part of the order filling. Shipment times will vary depending on the Customer’s location and the mode of shipment selected by the Customer. Any shipment times indicated are averages only. Duties may be levied on the purchaser by the customs authorities of the country of delivery. If the packaging is damaged, torn or opened at the time of delivery, please check the condition of the products. If they have been damaged, the Customer must refuse delivery or make an ad hoc reservation on the delivery confirmation slip (delivery refused: opened or damaged). Additionally, the Customer should check that the packaged delivered corresponds to the purchase order before signing the delivery confirmation slip. The Customer should make handwritten signed reservations if there are anomalies (damaged product, …). This check will be deemed satisfactory, if the purchaser or a person authorised by the purchaser has signed the delivery confirmation slip.

PAYMENT For all sales on credit, payment is due on the 20th day of the month following the date of invoice (“the due date”). In the event that an account is not paid in full by the due date interest will be payable on the overdue amount calculated at 2% per month from the due date to the date the account is paid in full. The Customer will be liable for any debt collection costs and any legal costs incurred in conjunction therewith. Optica retains the right to withhold deliveries while any account is overdue. Any discounted prices quoted by Optica apply only in the event that payment is made on or prior to the due date. In respect of payments made after their due date, the full price will be payable together with interest and any costs thereon. In the event that the Customer fails to make a payment by its due date, then all amounts owing by that Customer shall become due and owing. Any payments made by a Customer in reduction of overdue amounts shall be applied first to interest and debt collection and legal costs incurred.

If the Customer is paying a credit account by credit card, the payment may incur a transaction fee of 3.5% on the Gross total of the amount owing as well as any foreign currency bank service charges.

EVENT OF DEFAULT Optica’s obligation to fill any order made by the Customer may cease, at Optica’s election, on the occurrence of an Event of Default occurs, provided however that Optica must notify the Customer promptly and in writing if it intends not to fulfill and order on the basis of the occurrence of an Event of Default.

WARRANTIES  In the case of the supply of goods or services to which the Consumer Guarantees Act 1996 applies, Optica gives the warranties set out in that Act, provided however that Optica will not be liable for any consequential or indirect loss.  In all other cases, Optica gives no warranties as to goods or services supplied.  Any claim under these warranties must be made as soon as the Customer becomes aware of the defect. 

RETURNS If a product delivered is found to be defective or incorrect, the Customer must notify Optica within five working days. No credit or refund will be issued before the return of the product found to be defective, and without prior notification to Optica and authorization.
