The buyer ("you") shall mean any person, sole trader, partnership, business, body corporate or other entity detailed in the appropriate section of the sales invoice/order form and shall include all successors, heirs and assigns.

Any reference to you within these terms and conditions shall be as a consumer buyer unless specified as being a reference to a trade buyer.

The "Goods" shall mean the items detailed in the appropriate section of the sales/order form and it shall be a core term of the contract between us that any and all ancillary items are additional to such contract unless specifically detailed within the sales invoice/order form.

The "Price" shall mean the amount payable to Power Meters Online for the Goods plus VAT (at the rate applicable from time to time), and the amount paid to the delivery service provider for the supply of delivery services unless otherwise stated. You should note that prices quoted may vary during the currency of brochures (upwards or downwards) and current prices are quoted at the time of order. In respect of orders placed via the Internet, these shall not be accepted by us until confirmed in writing by us to you. 

These terms and conditions shall apply to all of our quotations, orders (including telephone orders) and contracts for the sale or supply of Goods by Power Meters Online. In respect of any sales of Goods to trade buyers, any other terms or representations, whether implied by statute, made prior to, collateral with or subsequent to the contract or order, are hereby excluded and shall not be binding upon us.

The Contract 

After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order for the Goods, and the delivery services you have requested from the delivery service provider. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to Power Meters Online to buy Goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Goods have been dispatched by the delivery service provider (the "Dispatch Confirmation"). The contract between you and Power Meters Online will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

The contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch (by the delivery service provider) we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

You may cancel your contract with us for all Goods, at any time up to the end of the 7th day from the date you receive the ordered Goods. You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty.

New Items
Power Meters Online offers a simple, 30-day return policy where you can return items in new condition for a refund of the original purchase price. New condition means the item has not been installed or used and all packaging including accessories, boxes and manuals are returned to us in the exact same condition as when shipped to you. Once we receive your return and ensure it is in brand new condition, we will promptly issue you a refund for the items returned. If you would like to do an exchange, the easiest way is to return your original purchase and place a new order at the same time. Immediately placing a new order ensures that you’ll get the new product quickly and that it won’t go out of stock while you wait for an exchange.

Damaged Items
For any products that do not perform as they should, we are happy to have your item repaired or replaced, assuming you are still within your warranty period. Please contact us so we can assist in the repair or replacement of your item. Please note, you are responsible for any shipping costs associated with sending your product to and from us or the manufacturer.

Return Procedures
Before returning your product for any reason, please contact us at info@powermetersonline.com in order to obtain an Return number. Failure to obtain an Return number before returning your item can increase processing times as we have to determine the specifics of the return once the item is received by us. You will be responsible for paying for shipping to and from Power Meters Online when returning your item for a refund, store credit or repair.
If you have any other questions or are not totally satisfied with the product you purchased, please contact our customer service team at info@powermetersonline.com or by phone at (+27) 78-708-6908. We are here and ready to help.

Cancellation by Power Meters Online
 
We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if:
 
We have insufficient stock to deliver the Goods you have ordered
The delivery service provider does not deliver to your area
One or more of the Goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers; or
We have reason to suspect that there is a risk of a fraudulent transaction.

If we do cancel your contract, we will notify you by email and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us (in respect of Goods provided by us, and delivery services provided by the delivery service provider (unless amounts in respect of delivery are refunded directly by the delivery service provider), from your debit or credit card as soon as possible but in any event within 30 days of your order.

Guarantees
 
All guarantees in respect of Goods are provided entirely by the manufacturers and are subject to terms contained therein. You are reminded to complete all warranty cards/documents upon receipt of the Goods where appropriate.
 
Title
 
Title to the Goods shall pass to you when the Goods ordered are collected on your behalf by the delivery service provider and leave our warehouse. In the event that sums owing in respect of other Goods ordered within a single order remain due, we shall apportion the sums owing for such Goods without prejudice to our right to retain title in respect of all Goods ordered.
 
Delivery
 
We will arrange delivery of your Goods on your behalf with third party delivery service providers at specially agreed discounted rates. 

Once Goods have been delivered to you or your agent, they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.

You must notify us in writing of any shortage or mis-delivery in any Goods ordered immediately, or at the latest within five working days of such shortage or mis-delivery, thereafter you shall be liable for any such shortage or mis-delivery. Where we have arranged delivery on your behalf with a third party delivery service provider, any claims for loss or damage in transit should be made directly to the delivery service provider. We will assist you in making any such claim, or alternatively we can deal with such claim on your behalf, at your reasonable cost. You should retain all packaging in the event of a claim or return within the terms of these terms and conditions.

All orders are shipped from Johannesburg, South Africa and therefore, deliveries made to countries outside the RSA may be subject to customs, legal, regulatory and certain practical restrictions. It is your responsibility to pay any additional taxes, fees or levies, import duty or other fees required by the local customs authority in order to release the goods to you. 

Please ensure that you enter the correct international delivery address and postcode. If the address is entered incorrectly or if customs duties or formal customs entry procedures are required, the delivery may be delayed. We are unable to offer you any assistance if either issue arises. 

Customs policies vary widely from country to country, therefore you are advised to check the local requirements in your country when placing an order.

If you fail or refuse to pay these charges, what happens to the goods is out of our control. In the event that the goods are returned without any charge to us we will refund the whole purchase price to you. In the event that the goods are returned to us but a delivery charge is levied on us, we will refund you the purchase price less the charge levied on us to return the goods. It is possible that the goods will not be returned to us, in which case no refund of the purchase price will be given to you. In any event, goods that are returned due to you refusing or failing to pay any of the charges outlined in this paragraph will not be entitled to a refund of the delivery charge.
 
Liability
 
If the Goods we deliver are not what you ordered or are damaged or defective, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing at our head office (as set out above) of the problem within five working days of the delivery of the Goods in question.

If any Goods are alleged to be damaged or defective, you must return such Goods to us for inspection and report (without any obligation on us to replace the said Goods prior to such inspection). You further confirm that it shall be reasonable for us to inspect, repair or replace (at our option) such defective Goods and allow manufacturers to undertake inspections so as to allow production methods to be modified. You further accept that it is reasonable to inform us of any interruption, defect or other failure prior to contacting independent third parties or incurring expense and to allow us to remedy the defect, failure or interruption.

If you notify a problem to us under above clause, our only obligation will be, at our option:

to replace or repair any Goods that are damaged or defective; or
to refund to you the amount paid by you for the Goods in question in whatever way we choose.

Save as precluded by law, we will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss, damage or expenses (including loss of profits, business or goodwill) howsoever arising out of any problem you notify to us under these terms and conditions and we shall have no liability to pay any money to you by way of compensation other than to refund to you the amount paid by you for the Goods in question under clause above.

You must observe and comply with all applicable regulations and legislation, including obtaining all necessary customs, import or other permits to purchase Goods from our site. We make no representation and accept no liability in respect of the export or import of the Goods you purchase.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to limit any rights you might have as a consumer under applicable local law or other statutory rights that may not be excluded nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for any death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.
 
INSTALLATION AND USE OF GOODS

Where advice is given after visual inspection by our agents or staff, such advice shall amount to an opinion only and we shall not accept liability for any inaccuracies therein.

Furthermore, we shall accept no liability for death or personal injury, unless caused directly by our own negligence.

Any Goods, or parts of them, that are modified or adapted by you or any third party shall no longer be warranted by the manufacturer nor shall we be liable for any failures resulting from any such modification or adaptation.
 
COMPETITION GOODS
 
Any Goods specified as and supplied as 'Competition Goods' are supplied for specialist use and are subject to extreme wear and stress whilst in use. The life expectancy and durability of such Goods are greatly reduced and you should note that any claim for failure or wear shall be limited to that of the manufacturers' guarantees. You agree that such use shall be a relevant circumstance for the purposes of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended). In addition, any parts connected to Competition Goods may be placed under stress and you should take advice from experts prior to purchase of such parts. You should also be aware that manufacturers may limit their guarantees when parts are installed for competition use.

PAYMENT TERMS
 
Please note that all website and mail order payments via debit or credit card or PayPal are taken in full at the time of order, regardless of stock. The total price paid represents an amount to us for the supply of Goods, and an amount collected by us on behalf of the delivery service provider for the supply of delivery services.

Quotations are given on the assumption that no variation in the Price will be made by the manufacturer/sole importer and that Government levies remain unaltered. In the event of such changes, the Price of any orders placed before the variation will remain the same and no further increases will be passed to you.
 
EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL
 
We shall accept no liability in respect of any failure to deliver Goods you have ordered or any delay in doing so or for any damage or defect to Goods delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control including, without limitation, strikes, lock-outs and other industrial disputes, breakdown of systems or network access, flood, fire, explosion or accident, acts of God, war or actions by third parties.
