Terms and Conditions
“Acorn Scientific” refers to Acorn Scientific Limited, a company registered in New Zealand.
“Customer” is the party which accepts a quotation given by Acorn Scientific, or whose offer to purchase is accepted by Acorn Scientific.
Quotations are generally valid for one month unless specified otherwise. Quotations are not binding on Acorn Scientific until the customer has received written order confirmation. Acorn Scientific reserves the right not to accept any order at its sole discretion.
All prices will be those in effect at the date of order. Changes in pricing may be made due to such uncontrollable factors as devaluation of currency and/or variations to landed costs and/or increases in manufacturer’s costs. Acorn Scientific reserves the right to change any pricing without prior notice excluding existing contracts.
The method of transportation and the carrier will be at the selection of Acorn Scientific. The cost of delivery to be paid by the customer will be advised at the time of order.
While Acorn Scientific will endeavour to meet expected delivery times, delay, however caused, will not entitle the customer to claim compensation to cover operating loss, loss of profit, penalties or other indirect loss. In the case of delays caused by circumstances beyond the control of Acorn Scientific or by the suppliers to Acorn Scientific, Acorn Scientific will have the right to cancel the contract without liability.
The goods will remain at Acorn Scientific risk until delivered to the customer when risk in the goods passes to the customer. Delivery occurs when possession or control of the goods passes to the customer, its agent or carrier. The risk includes any loss of or damage to or deterioration of the goods due to any cause whatsoever. The title of the goods passes to the customer when the customer has paid in full all charges set out in the invoice.
Acorn Scientific excludes all implied warranties to the extent permitted by law. In particular, the Consumers Guarantees Act 1993 does not apply to any goods supplied to the customer for business purposes. Under no circumstances shall Acorn Scientific be liable in any way, for losses, liability, costs or expenses of any kind howsoever caused, arising out of the use or inability to use any of the goods other than pursuant to any warranty provided in writing by Acorn Scientific in respect of the goods.
Before using the goods the customer should determine the suitability of the goods for the intended use of the customer. The limitation of liability of Acorn Scientific in respect of any claim is set out in clause 7.
9. Return Goods
Any goods returned for credit must be authorised by Acorn Scientific prior to their return and authorisation must be obtained within one week of receipt of the goods.
This clause applies where Acorn Scientific collects, uses and discloses personal information provided by the customer. Acorn Scientific is required to comply with New Zealand privacy laws when we collect and use your personal information.
These terms and conditions and all trading between Acorn Scientific and the customer shall be governed by the laws of New Zealand.
Acorn Scientific reserves the right, at any time, to modify, amend or update these terms and conditions without notice.
