Terms of Trade
The terms of trade set out below govern all of the supplies of goods and services from Aeroqual Limited (“Aeroqual”, “we”, “us”) to the Customer (“you”). They will replace any terms and conditions contained in any document used by you and purporting to have contractual effect, and your acceptance of any goods or services from Aeroqual indicates your acceptance of these terms of trade. These terms of trade are effective from 28 February 2013 and replace all earlier terms of trade between you and Aeroqual. Please refer separately to our Warranty Policy.
1.1 - All prices are subject to alteration without notice.

2.1 - You are responsible for risk in the goods from the earlier of the time they are received by a carrier for delivery to you, or the time they are received by you or your agent.
2.2 - You agree to pay all delivery costs. If we deliver any order in parts, then each delivery is a separate contract.

3. Payments and Property
3.1 - Unless we have agreed in writing to extend credit to you in another manner, you must pay for all goods in full before delivery or collection.
3.2 - Where we have agreed to extend credit to you, you must pay in full, without deduction or setoff, by the date indicated on the invoice. Your payment is made only when funds have fully cleared through the banking system into our bank account.

3.4 - Payments which you make to us will be applied first to any sum of money which is owed in respect of service work, then to payment for any goods which have been purchased as inventory and which have been sold by you, then to payment for goods supplied by us which have not been sold by you.
3.5 - Property and ownership in goods, whether in their original form or incorporated in or attached to another product, will not pass to you but will remain with Aeroqual until Aeroqual receives payment in full of the purchase price of the goods and all other amounts that you owe to Aeroqual for any reason.

3.8 - You must not resell or part with possession of any goods or equipment that we supply for your use before you have paid for it in full, unless we have given you written consent.
3.9 - Notwithstanding clauses 3.1 and 3.2 above, all payments shall immediately become due to Aeroqual if we reasonably believe that the information which you have given us in your application for credit is not correct or no longer correct, and you have failed to give us correct information within 5 days of our request, if, without our consent you sell or otherwise dispose of any goods which have not been paid for, if you become insolvent, commit any act of bankruptcy, or if a receiver, liquidator or statutory manager is appointed over any of your assets or undertaking, if you fail to comply with any of the provisions of clause 5, or if you make or attempt to make an arrangement or composition with creditors.

3.11 - Where Aeroqual bears the exchange rate risk, the parties agree that if the exchange rate on the actual date of payment differs by more than 5% from the purchase price, then the payment due may be adjusted accordingly.
4. Security Interests
4.1 - If we extend credit to you or if you owe us money for any reason, you agree to grant us a security interest in the property that we have supplied to you. You agree that you will do all acts necessary and provide us on request all information we require to register notice of that security interest over the goods and their proceeds and that you will advise us immediately in writing of any changes to that information.
