All orders for goods and services accepted by NTS Computing (“the vendor”) are accepted subject to the following conditions which shall form part and govern the contract of sale. Acceptance of goods shall be deemed to be acceptance of these conditions of sale. Any term sought to be imposed by a purchaser either in a document or otherwise that conflicts with or adds to these conditions is not accepted. No agent or representative of the vendor has authority to vary these conditions unless accepted in writing by NTS Computing.
- Payment and Price
(a) The vendor reserves the right to vary the quoted price for the goods by upward additions in accordance with market conditions at the date of actual supply and the purchaser shall pay such additions in addition to the quoted price. Price Lists do not constitute an offer.

If owing to non-availability of the goods or any other causes beyond the vendor’s control, the vendor shall be unable to effect delivery hereunder it shall be at liberty to determine the contract or part thereof by giving notice in writing to the purchaser.
- Property and Risk
For so long as any amounts remain owing from the purchaser to the vendor (whether immediately due or not) title to the property of the goods shall remain in the vendor and ownership will not pass to the purchaser until the vendor has received payment in full. In the event of the purchaser reselling the goods, if the vendor has not received all amounts owing to it, the purchaser shall account to the vendor for the proceeds of any such sale and meanwhile will hold all proceeds of such sale of such goods upon trust of the vendor until the vendor have received such amounts in full.
- Design Variation
Whilst the vendor makes every effort to ensure that goods supplied correspond to in every respect with the sample, specification or description provided as the case may be, the vendor is not responsible for the minor variations in specification, in colour or other design features, and no such minor variation shall entitle the purchaser to rescind the contract or shall be the subject of any claim against the vendor by the purchaser.
(a) No liability for any claim for missing items such as manuals, etc. shall be accepted unless the vendor is notified in writing by the purchaser within seven days of delivery.
(b) No liability for any claim will be accepted in the case of goods differing in quantity or descriptions from the particulars given on the delivery note / invoice unless the vendor is notified in writing by the purchaser within seven days of delivery and the onus is on the purchaser to prove any shortage.
(c) In the case of active third-party on-site maintenance contracts, the purchaser accepts an obligation to use the services of the contracted third-party to resolve claims.
In the case of manufacturers who operate direct product support and returns procedures, the purchaser accepts an obligation to process their claim directly through the manufacturer.
(a) The purchaser shall, unless otherwise, in writing, be responsible for all carriage, telephone, postal and incidental charges incurred during the guarantee period.
(b) Where a guarantee includes repair performed on the purchaser’s premises, commonly known as an ‘on-site maintenance’, this shall not apply outside the NTS Computing service area, currently held at a 7 mile radius.

The vendor reserves the right to charge a restocking fee on goods returned for credit which are not in stock condition.
(b) The purchaser shall unless otherwise stated be responsible for the cost of outward and return carriage and insurance of all goods returned by the purchaser to the vendor for service or credit which goods shall be at the risk of the purchaser until actual receipt of the goods by the vendor. The onus of proof of safe delivery shall rest with the purchaser.
