1. Any quotation from Cavpower automatically expires after 30 days of its date of issue unless accepted verbally or in writing and a deposit paid by the Customer. Unless otherwise stated in Cavpower’s price list, prices are exclusive of GST.

4. Cavpower may charge for shipment packaging provided by Cavpower.
5. Unless credit has been provided to the Customer for particular Supplies, the Customer must pay the total amount payable for Supplies inclusive of GST to Cavpower without deduction cash on delivery (“COD”).

Interest will be calculated daily and may be capitalised monthly until full payment is made.
7. Allowance to the Customer of time to pay after a due date for payment, will not constitute a waiver by Cavpower of any of these terms nor be construed as Cavpower granting credit facilities to the Customer. No credit facility will be granted to the Customer unless stated by Cavpower in writing.
8. Risk in the Supplies will pass to the Customer immediately upon Cavpower’s dispatch of the Supplies to the Customer or collection of the Supplies by the Customer. Any third party delivering the Supplies will be the Customer’s agent and Cavpower will have no liability for the acts or omissions of that agent even if delivery was arranged by Cavpower.
9. Any reasonable expenses incurred by Cavpower in recovering any outstanding monies from the Customer including the cost of repossession and resale of the Supplies, debt collection agency fees and legal costs (full indemnity basis) will be paid by the Customer. All monies due from the Customer will become immediately payable to Cavpower upon the issue against or service on the Customer of any notice or proceedings in any way concerning the Customer’s solvency or payment of its debts.
10. Supplies may incorporate changes from time to time made by Cavpower due to changes in manufacturing or in raw materials outside of the reasonable control of Cavpower. Any such changes will be notified to the Customer.
11. Cavpower will in no way be liable for any claim or cost resulting from non-delivery or delayed delivery of the Supplies which are beyond Cavpower’s control.
12. Title in the Supplies will not pass to the Customer until all amounts owing by the Customer to Cavpower have been paid in full for the Supplies. If the Customer has not fully paid for the Supplies but sells or otherwise disposes of them whether in the same form as supplied or incorporated into any plant or equipment or upon which work has been done or otherwise, the sale proceeds or monies received in respect of disposal or the amount attributable to the Supplies will upon receipt by the Customer be held by the Customer as trustee for Cavpower until all amounts owing have been paid.
13. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that to the extent that these terms provide for the retention of title of the Supplies in accordance with clause 12:
a) these terms constitute a Security Agreement for the purposes of the Personal Properties Securities Act 2009 (Cth) (“PPSA”);
b) the Customer grants Cavpower a security Interest in the Supplies and their proceeds to secure all amounts owed by the Customer to Cavpower at any time; and
c) Cavpower may register its security interest in the Supplier and their proceeds on the Personal Properties Securities Register (“PPSR”) as a Purchase Money Security Interest.

b) not to change its name in any form or other details on the PPSR without first notifying Cavpower; and
c) if requested by Cavpower, pay to Cavpower the cost of registering and maintaining registration of the Cavpower’s Security Interest on the PPSR, within 14 days of the request.
15. Cavpower need not give any notice under the PPSA (including a verification statement or a financing change statement) unless the notice is required by the PPSA and cannot be excluded.
16. No party may disclose information of the kind referred to in section 275(1) of the PPSA (except where the parties may do so where required due to the operation of section 275(7) of the PPSA) and the Customer must not authorise the disclosure of such information.
17. If Chapter 4 of the PPSA would otherwise apply to the enforcement of the security interest under these terms, the parties agree that the following provisions of the PPSA will not apply, or are waived, as the context requires:
17.1 section 95 (notice of removal of accession);
17.2 section 118 (enforcement of security interest in accordance with land law decisions);
17.3 section 123 (secured party may seize collateral);
17.4 section 125 (obligation to dispose or retain collateral);

For that purpose Cavpower’s agents or employees may enter any place Cavpower believes the Supplies to be without committing a trespass. Cavpower will have no obligation to make good any reasonable damage caused by such recovery, detachment or removal and Cavpower will not be liable for and the Customer will indemnify Cavpower against any costs, claims, damages or losses expended suffered by the Customer or a third party as a result.
20. If the Australian Consumer Law applies, the Customer has the benefit of guarantees in relation to the Supplies which cannot be excluded. Nothing in these terms is intended to exclude, restrict or modify rights which the Customer may have under the Australian Consumer Law or otherwise which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified by agreement.
21. The Supplies are supplied subject to Cavpower’s standard warranties as made available to the Customer. Copies of the applicable warranty statements are available on request.
22. Without limiting clause 20, where the Supplies are services, Cavpower warrants that it will repair or arrange to have repaired without charge to the Customer any fault in the Supplies proved to Cavpower’s reasonable satisfaction to have occurred entirely as a result of Cavpower’s poor workmanship. That fault must have occurred within 90 days after completion of the Service and during normal and proper use of the relevant plant or equipment by the Customer. If Cavpower accepts liability for repairs, the Customer at its cost (unless Cavpower is required to pay such costs at law) must deliver the plant or equipment to Cavpower’s nominated workshop and collect the plant or equipment after repair. Other than as stated in these terms or as unavoidably required by law, Cavpower gives no guarantee in relation to the services.
23. The Customer has relied entirely on its own skill and judgment in ordering the Supplies.
24. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Cavpower will not accept returns of gaskets, seals, belts, hoses, opened kits, non-stocked parts specifically ordered to meet Customer requirements or any of the Supplies which are not defective after 28 days from the date of supply to the Customer (“non-returnable parts”).

If returned within 14 days of delivery of the Supplies to the Customer, Cavpower will allow a full credit to the Customer upon provision of proof of purchase by the Customer. If returned between 15 days and 28 days after delivery, Cavpower will allow a credit of the invoiced price less 15%. The Customer must pay the cost of returning the Supplies unless they are defective and Cavpower is required to pay such costs at law. A copy of the original Cavpower invoice must accompany the returned Supplies. All returned Supplies are at the Customer’s risk until accepted by Cavpower in good order. To the maximum extent permitted
by law, Cavpower will not accept the return of any of the Supplies which have been used in any circumstances and gives no warranty whatever in respect of Supplies which have been used.
25. If the Customer is in breach of any of its obligations under these terms the Customer must indemnify Cavpower against all loss or expense suffered by Cavpower as a consequence of that breach.
26. To the maximum extent permitted by law, neither party will have any liability for any consequential loss.
27. Cavpower may amend these terms by giving no less than 30 days prior written notice to the Customer. If the Customer does not accept the variation to these terms, the
Customer must advise the Cavpower in writing within the 30 day notice period, otherwise the Customer will be deemed to have accepted the varied terms However, any variation to the terms of a current order must be in writing signed by Cavpower and the Customer.
28. Any of the Supplies replaced during the repair will be disposed of unless otherwise instructed by the Customer.
29. Any notice, invoice or document to be given to the Customer will be sufficiently given if posted by ordinary prepaid post or faxed to the Customer at the Customer’s last known address or fax number respectively or emailed to the address provided to Cavpower.
