Terms and


(Effective October 2011)
The following terms (Trade Terms) apply to, are incorporated into and govern every contract entered into between C-Tech Limited (C-Tech) and you for the supply of goods and/or
services by C-Tech to you (Goods). C-Tech can vary these Trade Terms at any time by notifying any amendments on its website at www.c-tech.co.nz.

1. Orders: Orders for Goods (Orders) must be placed by completing all details on the form
provided for that purpose by C-Tech on its website or otherwise (Order Form). All Orders
are taken subject to acceptance by C-Tech and C-Tech reserves the right to reject any
Order. A quotation or estimate does not give rise to a binding contract until you place an
Order which is subsequently accepted by C-Tech. Once an Order is accepted in writing by
C-Tech, that Order is irrevocable and, together with the relevant Order Form, any credit
application and the Trade Terms, will form a contract between you and C-Tech (Contract).

2. Back Orders: Any Order for Goods that are unavailable at the time of such Order will be
placed on back order. Back orders less than one month old will be supplied without prior
notice. Back orders more than one month old will not be supplied without your consent.

3. Price for Goods: Prices given are exclusive of GST, value-added tax and other applicable
taxes and duties (including all customs and import duties), which, where applicable, are
payable by you in addition to the price. The price for Goods may be increased to take
account of any costs incurred by C-Tech as a result of the method of payment used by you,
including, without limitation, any credit card transaction costs.

4. Freight cost: You will be liable to pay, in addition to the price of Goods, all costs
associated with packing, handling and freight of the Goods to the named place of

5. Payment: Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by C-Tech, full payment for Goods
in cleared funds and without deduction is a pre-condition of their dispatch from C-Tech’s
premises. If you fail to make any payment to C-Tech by the date due for payment, C-Tech
may, in its sole discretion (and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to
it) require you to pay, on demand, default interest on any amount outstanding at 2.5% per
month accruing on a daily basis from the due date for payment until the date when payment
is actually made. You will be liable to pay all expenses and costs (including legal costs on a
solicitor-client basis) in connection with C-Tech recovering or attempting to recover any
overdue amount. All payments are to be completed by electronic transfer to C-Tech’s
nominated bank account or as otherwise agreed by C-Tech in writing.

6. Delivery: Subject to clause 4, and unless otherwise agreed in writing by C-Tech, the terms
and conditions of delivery will be interpreted in accordance with INCOTERMS 2010
(International Commercial Terms) and its supplements published by the International
Chamber of Commerce, and Goods will be delivered DAP with delivery occurring when the
Goods are placed at your disposal on the arriving means of transport ready for unloading at
the named place of destination (Delivery). No failure or refusal by you to take possession
of any Goods will affect the time of Delivery. Any time stated for Delivery on an Order Form
or otherwise is an estimate only and not of the essence, and C-Tech will in no event be
liable for late Delivery.

7. Risk: All risk of loss or damage in, or in relation to, Goods will pass to you upon Delivery.

8. Non-delivery if payment in arrears: C-Tech may refuse to deliver Goods ordered by you if
payment of any monies owing to C-Tech by you is in arrears, notwithstanding that C-Tech
has accepted any relevant Order.

9. Defects and returns: You must give C-Tech written notice of any failure of any Goods
within 1 month of Delivery, unless expressly agreed otherwise by C-Tech (Defect Notice).
Upon receipt of a Defect Notice C-Tech may, at its discretion, require you to (at your cost)
return the relevant Goods to C-Tech for inspection. Where C-Tech determines, in its sole
discretion but acting reasonably, that the Defect Notice was validly given, C-Tech will, in its
sole discretion, either repair or replace the defective or non-complying Goods or refund the
price paid by you for such Goods. Any replaced defective Goods will become the sole
property of C-Tech upon Delivery of the relevant replacement Goods and, if required by CTech, will be returned to C-Tech at C-Tech's cost. If you do not issue a Defect Notice within
the specified period you will be deemed to have accepted such Goods as being free of
defects and complying with all relevant specifications. C-Tech may, at its discretion, delay
any repair, replacement or refund while you owe any overdue amount to C-Tech.

10. Security interests: 10.1 On signing these Terms you grant to C-Tech a continuing security
interest in all present and after acquired Goods as security for payment of all amounts
owing, and the performance of all obligations, under any Contract. 10.2 You acknowledge
that C-Tech may, at your cost, register its security interest in the Goods, and all of your
present and future rights in relation to the Goods and any proceeds, on the Personal
Property Securities Register established under the Personal Property Securities Act 1999
(PPSA). 10.3 You will provide all information and do all things (including executing
documents) as C-Tech may require for the purpose of securing the Goods, the payment of
all amounts owing and the performance of all of your obligations under the Trade Terms,
and for the purpose of ensuring that C-Tech has a perfected first ranking security interest in
the Goods and any proceeds under the PPSA. You will give written notice to C-Tech of any
change to your name at least 14 days before such change takes effect. 10.4 You will: (a)
maintain and keep the Goods in good working order and condition and protected against
theft, loss or damage; and (b) permit C-Tech to enter upon any land or premises owned or
occupied by you to view and inspect the Goods. 10.5 You waive your right to receive a
copy of any verification statement under the PPSA and agree that as between you and CTech: (a) You will have no rights under sections 114(1)(a), 116, 120(2) and 121 of the
PPSA; and (b) any rights of C-Tech in addition to those in Part 9 of the PPSA will continue
to apply. 10.6 Any payments made to C-Tech by you on an unspecified basis will be
applied: (a) first, in payment for Goods supplied by C-Tech and which have been sold by
you; and (b) second, in payment for Goods supplied by C-Tech and which have not been
sold by you. 10.7 You will not: (a) permit any other security interest to exist in relation to
the Goods; or (b) except in the normal course of business, sell, lease or dispose of, or
permit the sale, lease or disposal of, the Goods. 10.8 In addition to any rights that C-Tech
has under the PPSA, C-Tech will have the right, as your agent, at any time while any
amounts owing by you to C-Tech under the Trade Terms remains outstanding, and
including (without limitation) if any of the events specified in clause 18 occur, to enter into
any premises where Goods are stored and remove them without being responsible for any
damage caused in doing so. You will indemnify C-Tech for all such moneys and all costs,
charges and expenses in repossessing Goods.

11. Retention of Title of Goods Supplied to International Customers: 11.1 This clause 11
applies where Goods are supplied to a customer based outside of New Zealand. 11.2
Property in the Goods is retained by C-Tech until all monies owing by you to C-Tech for any
reason from time to time have been paid in full (Payment Date). 11.3 Subject to clause
11.4, you must, until the Payment Date, hold the Goods as bailee for and on behalf of CTech and must store the Goods in a manner that enables them to be identified as C-Tech's
property. 11.4 You may sell the Goods before the Payment Date if the sale is genuine and
in the ordinary course of your business, provided that any book debt created on such sale,
and the proceeds of sale when received by you, will be held on trust for C-Tech by you and
first applied towards the satisfaction of all indebtedness of you to C-Tech. This authority
may be revoked by C-Tech without the need for any notice if C-Tech deems your credit to
be unsatisfactory or an event as specified in clause 11.5 occurs. 11.5 If you fail to make
any payment due to C-Tech, or commit any act of insolvency, C-Tech may, without
prejudice to any other right C-Tech has at law or in equity, retake possession of any Goods
in your possession and resell the same, and you irrevocably authorise C-Tech, as your
agent, to enter into the premises where such Goods are stored and remove the Goods for
that purpose without being responsible for any damage caused in doing so. You indemnify
C-Tech for all such money and all costs, charges, expenses, losses and claims suffered by
C-Tech in exercising its rights under this clause 11.5.

12. Limited warranty: C-Tech warrants that the Goods sold to you will materially comply with
any specifications agreed by C-Tech with you, or notified by C-Tech to you, in respect of
such Goods, subject to the terms of any express written warranties provided by C-Tech to
you, and subject further to the proviso that this warranty will not apply: to any
remanufactured or used Goods; to any Goods produced in accordance with your
specifications where C-Tech has not previously produced or tested products with such
specifications; if you no longer own the Goods; if the Goods have been incorrectly installed,
(dis)assembled, modified, maintained, or repaired, other than with C-Tech’s approval and in
accordance with C-Tech’s instructions; if the Goods have not been used in accordance with
C-Tech’s instructions; if the Goods have been damaged by, or failed as a result of,

removed or altered; at any time that you have not fully paid the price for the Goods; or if
any equipment to which the Goods might be mounted or fitted is not suitable. Except as

C-Tech expressly excludes, and you may not rely on, all warranties, undertakings and
representations about the Goods.

under any trade practices, sale of goods, fair trading or other applicable legislation and
cannot be excluded; or if, notwithstanding the other provisions of this clause 13, C-Tech

claims by you for breach of the condition or warranty so implied or otherwise will be limited
at the option of C-Tech to the repair or replacement of such defective or non-compliant
Goods or a refund of, or credit for, the Contract price of the Goods supplied.

14. Intellectual Property: You acknowledge that neither you nor anyone you are responsible
for has, or will acquire, any right, title or interest in C-Tech's intellectual property (including
any intellectual property in the Goods), and neither the Trade Terms nor your use of CTech's intellectual property transfers any title or ownership in any of the same to you. You
must not cause, permit or assist with anything which may interfere with, damage or
endanger any intellectual property rights of C-Tech. You must advise C-Tech immediately
upon becoming aware of any unauthorised use or attempted use by any person of any
intellectual property of C-Tech.

liability of you or C-Tech under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 or the Fair Trading Act
1986. You will not give any representation, guarantee, warranty or other undertaking in
relation to the Goods or any services provided in connection with the Goods to customers
other than as shown on packaging, promotional material or documents supplied by C-Tech
to you or as otherwise authorised in writing by C-Tech. You will not hold yourself out as an
employee, agent or representative of C-Tech to any person. You acknowledge that, to the
extent that any Goods you acquire will be for business purposes, the provisions of the CGA
are excluded.

to you or any third parties for any loss, damage, expenses, injury or consequential, indirect

liability or injury arising out of or as a result of a breach of the Trade Terms, or any wilful,
negligent or unlawful act or omission, by you or any person for whom you are responsible.

delivered and work performed up to the date of suspension or termination and any other

under the Trade Terms or any other contract with C-Tech; are unable to pay your debts as

in whole or in part under the Trade Terms or for any loss or damage (including indirect or

is commonly understood). Nothing in this clause 20 will excuse payment of any amount
owing as it becomes due under the Trade Terms.
