1.3 The terms “Logical.IT” and “Customer” also refer to any person, firm, company or corporate entity associated with either party.
1.4 The term “the goods” refers to the goods, products, materials or substances to be supplied by Logical.IT to the Customer and includes services relating to such supply wherever appropriate.
1.5 The headings are used as a matter of convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation of-each clause.
1.6 Where the context so permits:
(a) Reference to the singular shall be deemed to include references to the plural also and vice versa; and
(b) References to any one gender shall be deemed to include references to the other gender.
Unless otherwise stated herein any quotation for the supply of goods and/or services by Logical.IT may be withdrawn at any time. If not withdrawn it remains open for acceptance for a maximum period of thirty days from the date of quotation and thereafter shall be deemed to be withdrawn. The contract for sale and purchase of the goods shall arise upon acceptance by the Customer of the quotation or upon Logical.IT’s acceptance of the Customer’s order.
3.1 Any quotation is based upon rates and conditions ruling at the date of the quotation unless otherwise specified. Any variation in exchange rates, costs of labour, transport, freight, insurance, duty, goods and services tax and other taxes or levies between the date of quotation and the date of delivery shall be for the Customer’s account and shall be added to and form part of the contract price.
3.2 All prices are to be “plus GST”. The Customer shall pay goods and services tax at the applicable rate in addition to all sums specified.
3.3 Subject to the provisions of clause 7 hereof:
3.3.1 Where the price contained in the quotation includes the cost of delivery to the premises specified by the Customer in the quotation, the quotation is upon the basis that reasonable access to the premises are available and that the goods are offloaded at the Customer’s risk with the Customer’s labour. Logical.IT’s driver may assist with unloading only. If such access and labour are not available an extra charge for handling will be added to the contract price.
3.3.2 Where the price contained in the quotation does not include the cost of delivery, but the Customer requires the goods to be delivered, Logical.IT shall be entitled to add to the contract price a fair and, reasonable delivery charge. Risk in the goods shall in such circumstances be with the Customer from the time the goods are removed from Logical.IT’s premises.
3.3.3 Logical.IT shall be entitled to add to the contract price such usual hourly truck hire rates as may pertain in the district in respect of excessive waiting time and other delays caused by the Customer, or the Customer’s servants, agents, contractors, or representatives.
4. Terms of Payment
4.1 Where Logical.IT has not expressly stipulated when payment is to be made, the terms of payment of the price shall be that the price in respect of the purchase of goods is due and payable upon delivery pursuant to clause 7 hereof (called “the delivery date”), and in respect of services the price is due and payable on or before the 20th of the month following the issue of an invoice, (such dates for payment called “the payment date”).
4.2 If Logical.IT shall at any time deem the credit of the Customer to be unsatisfactory it may require security for payment and such security shall be made available by the Customer without impairing the Customer’s liability hereunder, and Logical.IT may withhold delivery of any further goods ordered until provision of sufficient security is provided or the outstanding moneys are paid in Custom.
4.3 If the Customer defaults in any payment hereunder the Customer shall in addition to the purchase price and any default interest due pay the Custom costs (which shall include solicitor and own client costs) incurred by Logical.IT in collecting such payments and remedying the Customer’s default.
4.4 The Customer shall not be entitled to withhold any payment or to make any deduction there from for any reason whatsoever.
5. Default and Consequences of Default
5.1 Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue daily from the date when payment becomes due, until the date of payment, at a rate of two and a half percent (2.5%) per calendar month (and at the Supplier’s sole discretion such interest shall compound monthly at such a rate) after as well as before any judgment.
5.2 If the Client owes the Supplier any money the Client shall indemnify the Supplier from and against all costs and disbursements incurred by the Supplier in recovering the debt (including but not limited to internal administration fees, legal costs on a solicitor and own client basis, the Supplier’s collection agency costs, and bank dishonour fees).
5.3 Without prejudice to any other remedies the Supplier may have, if at any time the Client is in breach of any obligation (including those relating to payment) under these terms and conditions the Supplier may suspend or terminate the supply of Goods to the Client. The Supplier will not be liable to the Client for any loss or damage the Client suffers because the Supplier has exercised its rights under this clause.
5.4 Without prejudice to the Supplier’s other remedies at law the Supplier shall be entitled to cancel all or any part of any order of the Client which remains unfulfilled and all amounts owing to the Supplier hall, whether or not due for payment, become immediately payable if:
(a) any money payable to the Supplier becomes overdue, or in the Supplier’s opinion the Client will be unable to make a payment when it falls due;
(b) the Client becomes insolvent, convenes a meeting with its creditors or proposes or enters into an arrangement with creditors, or makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors; or
(c) a receiver, manager, liquidator (provisional or otherwise) or similar person is appointed in respect of the Client or any asset of the Client.
Unless Logical.IT has made the relevant measurements itself at the request of the Customer for the purposes of any quotation, the sizes in any quotation provided by Logical.IT to the Customer are based on the specifications supplied by the Customer and any additional costs arising out of any inaccuracy of such specifications shall be payable by the Customer.
7.1 Delivery of any goods shall be made to the place indicated on the quotation and if no place is indicated on the quotation, delivery shall be made by the Customer uplifting the goods from Logical.IT’s premises.
7.2 If the Customer fails or refuses to take or accept delivery then the goods shall be deemed to be delivered when Logical.IT was willing to deliver them.
7.3 Logical.IT reserves the right to deliver the goods by instalment and each instalment shall be deemed to be a separate contract subject to the same conditions as the main contract.
7.4 All costs associated with delivery shall be paid by the Customer and in the event of delivery taking place other than at the Logical.IT’s premises then the mode and method of delivery shall be Logical.IT’s usual procedure.
7.5 Should Logical.IT fail to deliver or make defective delivery of one or more instalments this shall not entitle the Customer to repudiate the main contract.
7.6 If any time for delivery shall be stated in the quotation such time shall be approximate only and shall not be deemed to be the essence of the contract.
7.7 Logical.IT shall not be liable for failure to deliver or for any delay in delivery occasioned by any cause beyond Logical.IT’s control.
7.8 If the contract provides for installation of any goods by Logical.IT the Customer shall make its premises (and access thereto) available for this purpose immediately upon request being made by Logical.IT. The Customer shall provide electricity and a clear and safe work area for the purposes of installation. If due to structural difficulties or access difficulties, or any other reason whatsoever, the cost of installation is higher than what would have been reasonably anticipated by Logical.IT at the time of making the quotation, the Customer shall in addition to the price pay such additional costs of installation. The Customer shall be responsible for obtaining all necessary permits for installation prior to the delivery date. The Customer shall indemnify Logical.IT for any loss, liability or extra expense it incurs as a result of the Customer defaulting in its obligations hereunder.

Receipt by Logical.IT of any cheque, bill of exchange or promissory note shall not be deemed to be payment until met or honoured.
8.1.2 Should the goods become constituents of or be converted into other products, or be incorporated in or used as materials for other goods, while subject to the Logical.IT ownership pursuant to clause 8.2.1 hereof, Logical.IT shall have and retain title and property in and to such other products or such other goods as if they were the goods delivered by Logical.IT to the Customer pursuant to this agreement, and the provisions of clause
8.1.3 hereof shall thereupon apply to such other goods or such other products.
