Terms and conditions of sale



This Standard Terms of Sale and Limited Warranty Agreement (“Agreement”) applies to any order, purchase, receipt, delivery, or use of any products (“Goods” or "Services") sold through Lumen IT Pty Ltd, ABN: 97 634 612 516. (“the Seller”) and the buyer (“the Buyer”) named in an offered quotation, sales confirmation, or invoice.



1. ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS: The acceptance of all orders and all sales by the Seller are made subject to, and expressly conditioned upon, the terms and conditions contained herein. Any of the Buyer’s terms and conditions which are different from, or in addition to, those contained herein is hereby objected to and shall be of no effect unless specifically agreed to in writing by the Seller. The parties agree that the terms and conditions set forth herein constitute the sole agreement between the parties with respect to any transactions between the Buyer and the Seller herein. The Seller is not responsible for any typographical, clerical, or other error or omission in any sales literature, quotation, price list, acceptance offer, invoice or other document.​



2. ORDERS AND PAYMENT TERMS: Orders are not binding upon the Seller until accepted by the Seller. Terms of payment are within the Seller's sole discretion. The Buyer agrees to pay the total purchase price for the Goods and Services, plus applicable tax and shipping charges. Invoices are due and payable within the time period noted on the invoice, measured from the date of the invoice. The Seller may invoice parts of an order separately.


The Seller reserves the right, by giving written notice to the Buyer at any time before delivery, to increase the price of the Goods or Services to reflect any increase in the cost to the Seller which is due to any factor beyond the control of the Seller (such as, without limitation, increase in price from supplier, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture), any change in the delivery dates, quantities or specifications for the Goods or Services which is requested by the Buyer, or any delay caused by any instructions of the Buyer or failure of the Buyer to give the Seller adequate information or instructions.



3. VALIDITY: Quotations are valid for a maximum period of 30 days from the date of quotation by the Seller or as otherwise specified in the quotation. Thereafter quotations are subject to confirmation before acceptance.


The prices quoted by the Seller are only for the supply of those Goods and Services specified in the quotation and do not apply to any lesser quantities or additional Goods and Services supplied by the Seller unless specified in writing by the Seller prior to supply.



4. CANCELLATION OF ORDERS: The Buyer may cancel any order for Goods at no charge up to five (5) business days prior to scheduled shipment upon written notice to the Seller, unless such Goods have been modified or otherwise reconfigured in accordance with the Buyer’s specifications, in which case no cancellation will be effective. Cancellation shall not relieve the Buyer’s duty to pay for Goods shipped, services performed or expenses incurred by the Seller prior to the Seller’s receipt of the Buyer’s written cancellation notice. If an order is cancelled prior to shipment, the Buyer’s sole remedy will be for a refund of the purchase price paid by the Buyer. Cancellation of orders following shipment must be made in accordance with the return policies of the manufacturer, publisher or supplier of the Goods.


Cancellation of Services can be made at no charge up to five (5) business days prior to service commencement unless such Services have already been started, in which case a partial cancellation will be effective depending on how much work has already been carried out in preparation for service commencement.



5. PAYMENT: Standard payment terms are 14 days from the invoice date, unless the Seller has offered extended terms to the Buyer. The Buyer shall pay the Seller by direct Electronic Funds Transfer. Past due amounts are subject to interest at 2.5% per month after 60 days from the invoice date, but not to exceed the maximum rate allowed by law. In the event of a Buyer default, the Buyer agrees to pay the Seller all costs of collection including, but not limited to, court costs, attorneys and filing fees.



6. TAXES: All prices are exclusive of all Australian GST Taxes, unless specifically stated. These taxes shall be paid by the Buyer.



7. DELIVERY/TITLE: Any delivery date given to the Buyer is approximate only and the Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer for failure to deliver on any particular date or dates. The Seller reserves the right to make deliveries in instalments. Delay in delivery of one instalment shall not give rise to a right of cancellation by the Buyer.

Responsibility for the Goods supplied will pass to the Buyer on delivery. Title in Goods supplied will not pass to the Buyer until full payment has been received.

All shipping charges and expenses shall be paid by the Buyer. These shipping and handling fees will be quoted and added to the invoice. Title to software remains with the applicable licensor(s), and the Buyer’s rights and obligations related to the software are contained in the related license agreement and any applicable end user terms between the Buyer and the licensor(s).


If the Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Seller adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (other than by cause beyond the reasonable control of the Buyer) then, without limiting any other right or remedy available to the Seller, the Seller may:

a) Store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Buyer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or

b) Cancel the order and charge the buyer a cancellation fee of 20%, applicable to cancelled orders.

c) Sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and, after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses, account to the Buyer for the excess over the price under a purchase agreement (through quotation and subsequent purchase order), or charge the Buyer for any shortfall below the price under the purchase agreement.



8. SHIPMENT DISCREPANCY: The Seller is not responsible for damage or shortage after delivery with a reputable transportation company. All discrepancies must be reported to the Seller by the Buyer within 7 business days of arrival of the Goods. The Buyer agrees that any employee or representative of the Buyer may sign for and receive the Goods sold to the Buyer herein.



9. ACCURACY OF DATA/CORRECTIONS: The Seller obtains certain data directly from the manufacturer, publisher or supplier of Goods and Services and is not responsible for pricing, typographical or other errors in any such data. In addition, availability of third-party Goods and Services is subject to change without notice. The Seller reserves the right to cancel orders related to such errors or product discontinuation or unavailability, and to correct its quotation at any time, including pricing errors not detected until after the Seller's confirmation.



10. SECURITY INTEREST: The Buyer grants to the Seller a security interest in all Goods and Services sold under this Agreement to secure payment in full. Additionally, the Buyer authorises the Seller to execute and file a financing statement or other documents that are necessary to perfect the Seller’s security interest. The Seller’s security interest shall terminate when the Seller has received all amounts due for the Goods. The Buyer agrees that the Buyer does not acquire any right to sell, assign, or dispose of the Goods until the Goods are entirely paid for; and in case of default of payment, the Seller is hereby authorised to take possession of, and remove, the Goods without demand or other causes, or notice of any kind, whereby all rights for action of trespass or other causes are waived, and to collect reasonable charges incidental therewith.



11. RETURNS: Other than as expressly provided in this Agreement, all sales are final and no returns will be accepted. Return Policy: The return of Goods purchased from the Seller is subject to specific manufacturer, publisher or distributor restrictions (collectively “Suppliers”). Suppliers may provide limited or no returns of the Goods. If the Supplier accepts returns, the Buyer may return the Goods and the Seller will assist in the replacement of the Goods or grant the Buyer a credit against future purchases in an amount equal to the original purchase price and freight paid for the returned Goods less any applicable restocking fees. The Buyer is responsible for shipping charges and risk of loss on all return shipments. Returns are also subject to the rights of return processes below.
