ORDERING OF GOODS AND COMPLETION OF SALE
Registered users may place orders for Goods, which ATT may accept or reject at its sole discretion.
ATT will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you or allowing you to collect them, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and ATT come into effect (the “Sale”).
Placing Goods in a wish list or shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an order for such Goods, ATT may remove such items if stock is no longer available or the price thereof has changed without notice to you.
DELIVERY OF GOODS
A copy of ATT’s proof of delivery (POD) signed by a person acting on behalf of you or purporting to do so, or by the person apparently in charge of your premises where ATT makes delivery, shall be deemed to be prima facie proof that the specified quantities of the products listed on the POD have been received by you, unless the contrary is proved and/or delivered at your specified address.
It will be deemed that ATT delivered the correct order to you, unless the contrary is proved, if you do not give written notice to ATT within 48 hours of date of delivery of any shortfall and/or error in the order so delivered in order for ATT to investigate any such allegations and rectify.
Unless ATT and you agree otherwise in writing, any date of delivery furnished by ATT will be an estimate only. ATT will not be liable for any delay whatever the cause and will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of any delivery not made on the delivery date furnished by ATT
ACCURACY OF BILLING AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION
We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per customer account. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the credit application or, in the absence of a credit application, the account application was made.
You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made on this site.
You accept that a certificate issued and signed by the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of ATT, will be and is a correct reflection of the transactions between you and ATT and constitutes prima facie proof of such amount and that the balance due indicated by him/her will be the correct amount due to the ATT at the date of the certificate.
You have 7 (seven) days from dispatch of ATT’s statement of account to object to any item therein contained, should you not object the account shall be deemed accepted and in order.
You accept that payment terms are strictly cash, alternatively 30 days from date of statement if so agreed by ATT. In the event that no credit facility has been applied for and granted by ATT, payment is required prior to ordering of the goods by you.
In the event of you effecting payment by means of a cheque and/or electronic funds transfer (EFT), payment will only be deemed to have been received once the monies have been cleared into ATT’s bank account.
All payments to ATT are made free of exchange and/or any charges levied by any financial institution.
You agree that any facility granted to you will carry interest equal to the prime interest rate levied by ATT’s Bankers at the time, plus 3% on amounts outstanding for longer than 30 days. Interest is compounded from date of invoice. The interest rate may be certified by any manager of ATT’s bankers whose appointment, capacity or authority it will not be necessary to prove and such certificate shall constitute prima facie proof of such amount.
You accept that until such time as you have paid the purchase price in full in respect of haulage, storage and/or related services, ATT will have a lien/retention right in and to all of the goods and/or all and any goods transported and/or stored on your behalf. ATT shall be entitled to take possession of any such goods which have not yet been paid for in respect of an overdue amount.
No sales representative, employee or agent other than one of the Directors of ATT shall have the authority to grant you any facility or increase same.
ATT may at its sole discretion grant, refuse or withdraw the facility at any time without prior notice to you.
You agree that ATT may from time to time inspect your books or records and may take possession of such books or records.
