Communicat Conditions of Sale

All goods and services provided by Communicat are supplied subject to the terms and conditions herein.

1. Business to Business

All goods and services are provided on a Business to Business basis and therefore are not provided as consumer transactions, therefore are not subject to consumer purchase legal obligations.

2. Payment Terms

Communicat provides diverse range of information technology products and services.  The nature of our business requires that products and services are subject to different payment terms depending upon the type of product/service.

Please refer to the separate “Payment Terms” document which explains the terms of payment required for different types of purchases.

3. Terminology

Within this document Communicat is the supplier and is referred to as “we” or “our”.
The customer is referred to as “the client” or “you”.

4. Transfer of Ownership does not take place until goods and services are paid for

Ownership of equipment, software and other goods will not pass to you until payment in full has received by us for all amounts owed on your Communicat account.  By accepting these terms you confirm your acceptance that we may, at our discretion, register your purchases with the Personal Property Securities Register

Once goods and services have been delivered and/or provided to you then any remaining outstanding payment will be due immediately.

5. Additional consequence for the client not complying with payment terms.

In addition to the limitation on transfer of ownership described at paragraph 4, also, if you do not comply with the payment terms stated on Communicat’s Payment Terms document then we reserve the right to withdraw services and to enter your premises, or any premises where goods are located and to recover any goods that have been provided, as compensation for amounts owed.  We will not be held responsible for any damages, consequential or otherwise, which result from the withdrawal and/or removal of our goods and/or services.

6. Some services require your approval and payment before the due date to protect your asset.

Internet domain names and certificates are valuable intellectual property for your business.  These registrations are issued for a limited and specified period and must be renewed before the designed payment required for payment (i.e. prior to the expiry date).

Our procedure will require you to confirm that you wish to renew your registration, that you agree to the terms and that you have paid the fees required.  Communicat will advise you by email prior to the required payment date (i.e. prior to the expiry date).  We will raise an invoice and bill your Communicat account or your credit card.  If you do not respond to Communicat’s advice and pay the invoice you will be at risk of the registration expiring, in which case you will forfeit your rights.  If fail to pay these invoices and do not renew your registration then your website will become inoperative and may be taken over by an unethical organisation.  Communicat cannot be held responsible if your lose your internet registrations due to your failure to respond to our renewal and payment requests.

Therefore you may wish to accept our internet domain name “Auto-Renew” option (see separate agreement).
