NAPF Terms & Conditions of Sale
Please read through these Conditions of Sale carefully as they form the agreement under which NAPF Electronics will supply products and services to you. These Conditions of Sale apply to all sales made by NAPF to consumers whether products and services are purchased online or over the telephone.
1. Product Orders
1.1 NAPF accepts order either over the telephone or by completing and submitting our online order form on our website. We may at our discretion accept or reject an order depending on a variety of factors, such as availability of the ordered products or our ability to validate payment for the products. You must not order products or services from us if you are under eighteen (18) years of age. We may, at our discretion, treat any order by a person under eighteen (18) years old as void.
1.2 Once you have placed an order we will provide you with an order reference number via a confirmation email or over the phone once your checkout process or phone order is complete. If payment is being made by credit card, debit card, EFTPOS or Paypal, we will not complete your order until your payment has passed our validation procedures. On validation of your payment, your order will be processed and an order reference number will be provided to you.
1.4 We sell some products under agency agreements. Prices for these products are set by the manufacturers and not by NAPF. If you are buying products from these manufacturers, you will be subject to their terms and conditions of sale, which will prevail over these Conditions of Sale to the extent of any inconsistency.
We receive payment from you for the above products on behalf of the manufacturer and your tax invoice for these products will come directly from the manufacturer. If you are paying for these products by credit or debit cards, you consent to us disclosing your credit or debit card information to the manufacturers for the purpose of obtaining payment for the products. Delivery for most of these products will be by the relevant manufacturers.
2.1 We do our best to keep in stock most products that are advertised by us but these stock levels are subject to change without notice.
2.2 If, for any reason, we cannot supply a product you have ordered, we will let you know over the phone or contact you using the details provided by you at the checkout process to amend, cancel or put your order on backorder as agreed with you. If you choose to put your order on backorder, we will contact you to arrange for delivery once the product is available.
3. Price and Payment
3.1 The price payable for a product is the one set out on our website or advised by us over the phone at the time you place your order. All prices are inclusive of GST. Subject to clause 9.6, we make every effort to ensure prices and product information on our website, catalogues or advertisements are correct and up-to-date and we reserve the right to reject any pricing errors and are not bound to any errors. Prices for our products displayed on third party websites may not be correct and we are not bound by them.
3.2 We accept payment via Paypal and direct funds transfer. If the delivery address is in the Sydney metropolitan areas you can pay on delivery using cash, bank cheque (in Australian dollars only) or using credit cards. If you are outside this area cash on delivery is not permitted at this time.
3.3 Your credit card details will be encrypted to minimise the possibility of unauthorised access or disclosure. Whilst we employ the latest technology and use Paypal's Payflow secure payment gateway, we will not be responsible for any loss or damage (whether direct or indirect) suffered by you if your credit card is fraudulently used or is used in an unauthorised manner by a third party.
3.4 If you would like to redeem a gift voucher for payment or partial payment of your ordered products, you must enter the gift voucher details during the checkout process or inform our sales or Customer Service Team when placing your phone order. Products purchased with a gift voucher cannot be returned in exchange for cash. Use of a gift voucher is subject to our Gift Voucher Terms and Conditions.
3.5 If you have a promotional/discount/coupon code, you will be prompted to enter the code at the checkout and this will generate a discount from your cart value or add an incentive. All promotional codes have a unique set of terms and conditions automatically applied when issued and are only valid at our discretion. Promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount. If you are unable to use a promotional code, please contact our Customer Service Team.
3.6 Your tax invoice will be sent to you when the items you have ordered are delivered. Your tax invoice is your proof of purchase and may be required for any warranty claims.
4.1 We offer free delivery for most of our products. If you are not eligible for free delivery, a delivery fee may apply.
4.2 You may request a date for delivery and we will do our best to arrange delivery on that date. However, some delivery areas have set delivery days. If we cannot deliver on your preferred day we will contact you as soon as possible.
4.3 If you need to change a delivery date or the delivery address, please contact our Customer Service Team at least 48 hours before the scheduled delivery date. If you are not available to take delivery on the agreed delivery date, you will be charged a delivery fee for each additional attempt for delivery. However, if we cannot deliver your full order at the time agreed you will not be charged for additional deliveries.
4.4 If you would like next business day delivery of the product, you will need to place your order by 2.00 pm (Sydney time) on the previous business day, the product must be in stock and you must be in our next day delivery area.
4.5 Subject to this clause 4, we will deliver to the delivery address specified by you when you placed your order on the agreed delivery date.
4.6 We may deliver the products via a range of delivery methods. All deliveries must be signed for, depending upon which delivery method we use:
(a) delivery by one of our drivers: our driver will need to see a photo ID of the person who placed the order or that person's representative and will keep a record of that ID. If neither you nor your authorised representative is at the delivery address to take delivery, our driver will leave a notice in your letterbox or under your front door advising you of our contact details so that you can contact us to organise another delivery day;
(b) delivery by our contracted courier company or directly by the manufacturer: if neither you nor your authorised representative is at the delivery address to take delivery, the courier company or the manufacturer will leave a card with our contact details so that you can contact us to arrange another delivery time and date; and
(c) delivery by Australian Post: if neither you nor your authorised representative is at the delivery address to take delivery, an "Article Awaiting" card will be left at the delivery address and your order will be taken to the Australian Post Office suitable to store the product until you are able to go and pick it up. In these circumstances our obligation to deliver the product to you is satisfied when the "Article Awaiting" card is left at the delivery address.
4.7 We cannot commit to an exact delivery time on the day of delivery. If delivery is by one of our drivers the driver will contact you on the morning of delivery before 10 am with an approximate delivery window. If delivery is after 11 am the driver will contact you again when they are approximately one hour away.
5. Installation for Other Appliances
5.1 We offer installation services for some appliances for a fee. This service is only available in certain areas and you must purchase this service at the time you purchase your appliances. All installations will take place, where possible, at the time of delivery by a trained, licensed and fully insured installer. The types of installation services offered by us are set out in the Installation Service page and will be subject to our standard Installation Terms and Conditions.
5.2 We may provide additional installation services (including any required cabinetry, electrical and plumbing work) directly or by one of our related entities or subcontractors. The installation services and the price will be agreed between you and us in writing, and will be subject to our standard Installation Terms and Conditions.
6.Title and Risk
6.1 Notwithstanding delivery of the products to you, title in the products will not pass to you until the later of delivery or your payment has been processed or otherwise received by us. If your payment is declined for any reason we reserve the right to reclaim the products from your possession, custody or control even if they have been delivered to you or moved from the delivery address. We reserve the right to keep or sell the products. Risk of loss, damage or deterioration to any products will pass to you on delivery.
7. Warranties and Limitation of Liabilities
7.1 Nothing in these Conditions of Sale limits or excludes any guarantees, warranties, representations or conditions implied or imposed by law, including the Australian Consumer Law ("ACL") (or any liability under them) which by law may not be limited or excluded. If you are a "consumer" under the ACL, the following notice applies to you:
"Our goods come with warranties and guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law ("Consumer Guarantees"). You are entitled to a replacement or a refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure."
7.2 Your product may come with a manufacturer's warranty. The manufacturer's warranty is in addition to but may overlap with any rights and remedies you may have under applicable law, including any Consumer Guarantees. If you are not considered a "consumer" within the meaning of the ACL, the manufacturer's warranty may be your sole remedy. However, you should check the manufacturer's warranty carefully as many manufacturers' warranties will not apply in a business or commercial setting. If you would like to make a claim under the manufacturer's warranty, please contact our Customer Service Team. Please refer to clause 11 if you need to arrange for returning the goods to us.
7.3 You may also purchase a Customer Care Plan at the time you buy your product to see your rights under the Customer Care Plan which applies to your product. Such rights are in addition to but may overlap with any rights and remedies you may have under applicable laws including any Consumer Guarantees. The cost of the Customer Plan payable by you does not include any cost for benefits which overlap with your ACL rights. Please refer to the Customer Care Plan if you would like to make a claim.
7.4 Subject to this clause 7, and to the extent permitted by law:
(a) all terms, guarantees, warranties, representations or conditions which are not expressly stated in these Conditions of Sale are excluded;
(b) we will not be liable for any special, indirect or consequential loss or damage (unless such loss or damage is reasonably foreseeable resulting from our failure to meet an applicable Consumer Guarantee), loss of profit or opportunity, damage to goodwill, loss of data (including loss of data stored on any media contained within electronic or computing products), arising out of or in connection with the products, the services or these Conditions of Sale (including as a result of not being able to use the products or services or the late supply of products or services), or the need to recover, re-program or reproduce any program or data stored in or used with the products purchased from us, whether at common law, under contract, tort (including negligence), in equity, pursuant to statute or otherwise; and
(c) our total liability arising out of or in connection with the products, the services or these Conditions of Sale, however arising, including under contract, tort (including negligence), in equity, under statute or otherwise, will not exceed the total price paid by you for the purchase of products and services under these Conditions of Sale.
7.5 Where by law we are unable to exclude terms, guarantees, warranties, representations or conditions but are able to limit them, to the extent permissible by law we limit our liability for any breach, at our option, to the repair or replacement of products, or payment of the cost of repairing or replacing the products or in the case of services, to supplying the services again or the cost of having the services supplied again.
