Purchase Order Terms & Conditions
1 EXECUTED CONTRACT TAKES PRECEDENCE

The Supplier is deemed to have accepted the terms of this Purchaser Order Contract by commencing to supply the Goods or perform the Services.

Subject to the Purchaser's rights at law, including the Australian Consumer Law, the Supplier must if a Defect arises during the Warranty Period, at its own expense, repair or replace any Defective Item within the time stated by the Purchaser or, if no time is stated, within a reasonable time. If the Defective Item is not repaired or replaced within that time, the Purchaser may engage others to repair or replace the Defective Item and the reasonable costs incurred by the Purchaser shall be a debt due from the Supplier to the Purchaser.

The Supplier indemnifies, and will keep indemnified, the Purchaser in respect of any claim made against the Purchaser as a result of or in any way connected with the provision of the Goods and/or Services. The Supplier's liability pursuant to this indemnity will be reduced proportionately to the extent that the Purchaser, or any person for whom the Purchaser is responsible, has contributed to the loss.
