(d) Micador is prevented or delayed in performing its obligations under an Agreement due to a Force Majeure Event.
15.2 On termination of an Agreement:
(a) the Customer must not sell or part with possession (other than as required under clause 15.2(b)) any Goods the subject of the Agreement (unless the Goods have been paid for);
(b) the Customer must, at its cost, immediately return to Micador all Goods the subject of the Agreement (unless the Goods have been paid for) and any displays and other promotional and advertising materials in relation to the Goods; and
(c) all money owed by the Customer to Micador will become immediately due and payable.
15.3 Each party retains any rights, entitlements or remedies it has accrued before termination, including the right to pursue all remedies available to either party at law or in equity.
16.1 Micador may cancel or suspend any Agreement effective immediately upon providing the Customer with written notice of cancellation or suspension where Micador believes (for any reason) that it will be unable to supply the relevant Goods or provide the Services to the Customer, provided that Micador will refund to the Customer any amounts already paid by the Customer for the Goods or Services subject to the cancellation and which are not provided to the Customer. The refund of any amounts will be the Customer’s sole remedy against Micador in respect of any cancellation under this clause 16.1.
16.2 Neither an Agreement nor any Offer that has been submitted can be cancelled by the Customer except with the prior written consent of Micador or in accordance with clause 4.2(c).
17.1 Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, in the event of an inconsistency between any of the documents listed in clause 2.5, the following order of precedence will apply to the extent of the inconsistency (1) the prices and quantity of Goods and/or Services set out in the Quote or, if there is no Quote, in the Order (2) these Terms; (3) the Account Application; (4) any other terms of the Quote (if applicable); (5) the Invoice; and (6) without limiting clause 17.2, any terms in the Order which are accepted by Micador in writing.
17.2 These Terms will prevail over any Customer terms and conditions, except to the extent specifically agreed by Micador in writing and any terms or conditions included in an Order or other document provided or issued by the Customer will only be binding on Micador if expressly agreed by Micador in writing.
18.1 In these Terms:
(a) the meaning of general words is not limited by specific examples introduced by ‘includes’, ‘including’, ‘for example’ or ‘such as’ or similar expressions;
(b) a reference to a person includes a reference to the person’s executors, administrators, successors, substitutes and permitted assigns;
(c) no provision will be construed to the disadvantage of a party because that party was responsible for the preparation of the Terms or the inclusion of the provision in the Terms; and
(d) unless otherwise provided, all monetary amounts are in Australian dollars and a reference to payment means payment in Australian dollars.
18.2 Micador will not be liable for any failure to perform or delay in performing its obligations under an Agreement if that failure or delay is due to a Force Majeure Event.
18.3 Any price list, goods lists or other similar documents or catalogues issued by or on behalf of Micador do not constitute an offer by Micador to supply Goods appearing in those lists or catalogues or an offer by Micador to supply Goods at the prices set out in those lists or catalogues. Micador’s price lists and catalogues may be changed by Micador at any time without notice.
18.4 The Customer must maintain and keep current and complete records of the Goods which Micador has supplied to the Customer (in sufficient detail so as to be readily identified as goods supplied by Micador), including any Goods which are sold by the Customer to a third party and must, immediately upon written request from Micador, provide Micador with access to, or copies of, those records.
18.5 The Customer must not assign or otherwise deal with any of its rights or obligations under these Terms without Micador’s prior written consent. Micador may, to the extent permitted by law, assign, subcontract or deal with any of its rights or obligations under these Terms at any time in circumstances where, in the opinion of Micador acting reasonably, the assignment will not adversely affect the rights of the Customer.
18.6 Micador may, to the extent permitted by law, vary these Terms from time to time with the variation becoming effective as soon as Micador provides the Customer notice of the variation (Variation Date). Any variation to these Terms will only apply to any Offer made after the Variation Date and the parties acknowledge that nothing in these Terms requires the Customer to make any further Offers after the Variation Date.
18.7 A failure to exercise or delay in exercising any right under these Terms does not constitute a waiver and any right may be exercised in the future. Waiver of any rights under these Terms must be in writing.
18.8 If any provision of these Terms is void, unenforceable or illegal and would not be so if words were omitted, then those words are to be severed and if this cannot be done, the entire provision is to be severed from these Terms without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions.
18.9 The termination or expiry of these Terms or any Agreement does not operate to terminate any rights or obligations that by their nature are intended to survive termination or expiration, and those rights or obligations remain in full force and binding on the party concerned including without limitation the rights and obligations under clauses 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13.2, 15, 17 and 18.
18.10 Each party must:
(a) do all acts necessary or desirable to give full effect to an Agreement; and
(b) refrain from doing anything which might prevent full effect being given to an Agreement.
18.11 The relationship between the parties is and will remain that of independent contractors, and nothing in these Terms or an Agreement constitutes the parties as partners or joint venturers or constitutes any party as the agent of another party or gives rise to any other form of fiduciary relationship between the parties.
18.12 Notices by a party must be delivered by hand, prepaid post or email and sent to the address of the receiving party specified in the Account Application or, if none are specified, in any other part of the Agreement. Notices will be deemed to have been received: by hand upon delivery; by post within six Business Days of sending; and by email one hour after the email is sent (unless the sender knows that email has failed to send).
18.13 These Terms are governed by the laws in force in Victoria, and the Customer and Micador submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Victoria.
18.14 The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (1980) (The Vienna Convention) and any acts or regulations enacting The Vienna Convention will not apply to these Terms or any Agreement and are excluded.
