2. BASIS OF THE SALE
2.1 All Contracts between Pama and a Customer shall be governed by these Conditions (and, where applicable, any other terms and conditions pursuant to Clause 1.3 and/or Clause 1.4) to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions not accepted in writing by an Authorised Representative of Pama, including without limitation any terms on or referred to in any Customer purchase order. In the case of orders placed by Electronic Means which refer to any terms and conditions of the Customer, Pama's automatic taking on to its system of such order shall amount to a rejection of the Customer's terms and conditions and an offer to supply the Products ordered on the basis of these Conditions. No variation to these Conditions shall be binding unless agreed by letter signed by an Authorised Representative of Pama. It is the Customer's responsibility to be aware of the Conditions as published from time to time but Pama will use best efforts to notify Customer of any material changes to the Conditions before they become applicable. In addition to any acceptance of these Conditions by signing Pama's account application form, the Customer's acceptance of these Conditions shall also be made (in respect of the first Contract and all subsequent Contracts) either by (1) Customer providing a purchase order to Pama or (2) Customer accepting Products or Services from Pama, whichever occurs first.
2.2 No employee or agent of Pama other than an Authorised Representative has any authority to make any representation at all concerning Products or Services and an Authorised Representative has no authority to make such representation other than by letter (an 'authorised representation') and accordingly the Customer agrees that in entering into any Contract it does not rely on any unauthorised representation and Customer agrees it shall have no remedy in respect of any unauthorised representation.
3. CUSTOMER IDENTIFICATION
3.1 In placing an order (including by Electronic Means) the Customer may utilise one or a combination of account name, account number and other forms of identification including password or other code issued to the Customer (together and individually 'Customer's Identification' or 'Customer Identification').
3.2 It is the Customer's responsibility to keep the Customer's Identification confidential. The Customer has the sole responsibility for its Customer Identification. The Customer shall immediately inform Pama in case of loss of password or in case of any abuse or attempted abuse of Customer password or other Customer Identification. The Customer agrees that the Customer is entirely responsible for use of the Customer's Identification and that it is the Customer's responsibility to have in place security measures and procedures to ensure use of its Customer Identification only by authorised personnel for authorised purposes.
3.3 The Customer agrees that Pama is entitled to rely absolutely on any orders placed on Pama which have utilised the Customer's Identification and to deliver as directed by such orders and to invoice and be paid in respect of such orders.
3.4 The Customer agrees that any order placed on Pama including by Electronic Means mentioning or utilising Customer's Identification is a valid and binding purchase order.
3.5 The Customer acknowledges that Pama cannot guarantee the security of the Internet and the possibility of interception or corruption of data transmitted from the Customer to Pama using a correct Customer Identification, and that Pama is nonetheless entitled to rely on data transmitted in the form it is received at Pama.
4. PAMA INFORMATION
4.1 All Product pricing, description, availability and related information ('Information') provided by Pama, in any form, is the property of Pama or its suppliers. Pama hereby grants the Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Information for its internal use only for the purpose of the Customer's purchases and sales of Products sold by Pama to it. Pama shall be entitled to stop the provision of Information at any time without notice. The Customer agrees to hold in confidence and not to directly or indirectly use, reveal, report, publish, disclose or transfer to any other person or entity any of the Information or utilise the Information for any purpose except as permitted herein. Pama makes no warranty, either express or implied on the Information or its accuracy. All Information is provided to Customer 'as is.' If Pama provides Information to Customer by Electronic Means, Customer agrees to update such Information regularly to ensure its accuracy. Specifically but without limitation Customer is not entitled to utilise Information for any purpose other than in the normal course of business of a reseller and is not entitled to use, reproduce or display the Information in any way, which in Pama's opinion; (1) would enable it to be identified as information obtained from Pama (2) would enable comparison of the Information with other suppliers' information relating to products or (3) could be damaging to Pama's business interests.
4.2 Pama agrees to hold in confidence and not to directly or indirectly use, reveal, report, publish, disclose or transfer to any other person or entity any Customer sensitive information or utilise such information for any external purpose if Customer has notified Pama in writing that it is confidential.
5. ORDERS AND SPECIFICATIONS
5.1 The Customer shall be responsible to Pama for ensuring the accuracy of the terms of any purchase order.
5.2 Pama reserves the right to make any changes to the Contract due to changes in the specification of the Products which are required to conform with any applicable safety or other statutory requirements. These changes will be duly notified to the Customer. The Customer cannot cancel or reschedule the Contract provided the changes do not alter the material terms of the Contract. For other types of changes, the possibility of cancellation will be subject to Pama's discretion and conditions.
5.3 Pama is under no obligation to accept the withdrawal of an order or the cancellation of a Contract which has been accepted by Pama. If Pama agrees to accept the Customer's withdrawal of any order or the cancellation of a Contract such agreement will only be effected by means of letter, fax or email signed or sent by an Authorised Representative of Pama.
5.4 Notwithstanding any other terms of these Conditions it is agreed that the provision or display of Product pricing and other Information (as defined in Clause 4.1) by Pama to Customer does not amount to an offer by Pama to sell such Product at that price or on any other terms. Supply of such Information is only an invitation to treat. An order by the Customer for Product or Services shall be the offer.
5.5 In the case of orders placed by Electronic Means only, notwithstanding any acceptance by Pama of any offer for any Product, if there has been a material or obvious pricing error by Pama, Pama shall be entitled within 30 days of its acceptance of such offer to either invoice the Customer for the Customer's true list price (not exceeding the prevailing market price at wholesale level) of the Product at the date of order or, if the Customer shall prefer, collect the Product at Pama's expense and credit the Customer for any charges (e.g. price and freight) invoiced by Pama.
5.6 Orders for direct shipment to Customer's customers or Special Order Products may require prepayment and will be subject to additional fees.
5.7 Pama will set minimum order levels and charge additional fees for any order below such levels. Current minimum order levels can be found on Pama's web site www.pama.com.
6. PRICE OF THE PRODUCTS
6.1 Subject to the provisions of Clause 5.5 and Clause 6.2:-
6.1.1 Prices for Products in Pama's stock ready to be shipped will be established at the time the order is accepted by Pama;
6.1.2 If the Customer places an order for Products not in stock at the time of order (a 'Backorder') or the Customer places an order for scheduled delivery, such orders shall be irrevocable and the price for such Products shall be the price established at the time the Backorder or scheduled delivery is accepted by Pama.
6.2 Notwithstanding any of the foregoing Pama reserves the right to increase its prices after acceptance of an order due to an increase in its supplier's price to Pama or an increase in direct costs to which Pama becomes subject (including without limit costs resulting from currency fluctuation) but Pama shall only increase its price by such level as is necessary to reflect such increases.
6.3 All prices exclude the cost of delivery from Pama's warehouse to the Customer's delivery point, configuration, fulfilment and other services provided by Pama.
6.4 All prices and charges are exclusive of any applicable Value Added Tax, which the Customer will be additionally liable to pay to Pama. Unless otherwise stated prices exclude any copyright levies, waste and environmental fees, and similar charges that Pama by law or statute may or shall charge or collect upon resale.
6.5 If Customer is offered special pricing for certain orders and such pricing is made available to Pama from its suppliers ('Special Bids'), the Customer shall adhere to the terms and conditions of such Special Bids and agrees to indemnify Pama for any claims made against Pama by the suppliers for Customer's non-compliance with the supplier's terms and conditions. Customer agrees to pay any service fees charged for Pama's pass-through of Special Bids and other supplier driven benefits the Customer may receive, including any marketing funding, price protection and individual rebates, and agrees that pass-through and payment of such benefits will be subject to Pama having received the benefits from its supplier.
7. TERMS OF PAYMENT
7.1 Unless an Authorised Representative of Pama has previously agreed in writing with the Customer that the Products shall be supplied on a credit account basis, payment for the Products shall be made in full by the Customer with the Customer's order or on delivery or collection of the Products as determined by Pama. If payment is made by credit or debit card the Customer agrees to pay all fees and service charges incurred by Pama for the handling of such transaction including fees charged by the card company to Pama.
7.2 Where Pama has agreed to supply the Products on a credit account basis the Customer shall pay the price of the Products within the due date of Pama's invoice notwithstanding that title to the Products has not passed to the Customer. If the Customer has been offered an early payment discount by an Authorised Representative of Pama, the Customer may take advantage of the offer subject to meeting the conditions detailed on Pama's web-site www.pama.com. Customer shall not deduct or set off any other amount against the invoice as compensation for any payment made prior to the due date. Pama shall be entitled at its absolute discretion to alter payment terms (other than on concluded Contracts) and withdraw or alter any credit limit granted at any time with notice. If Customer exceeds its credit limit or credit terms or fails to qualify for continued credit terms, Pama may, at its sole discretion, delay subsequent shipments or require prepayment until Pama determines that Customer is once again qualified to receive credit terms. Customer shall not set off or withhold any amount due to Pama against its receivables without Pama's prior written approval, and shall in the event of a bona fide dispute, pay any undisputed part of the invoice.
7.3 The time of payment shall be of the essence. If the Customer fails to make a payment on or before the due date then without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to it Pama shall be entitled to:-
7.3.1 cancel the Contract or suspend any further deliveries or suspend any Services to the Customer; Pama may at its discretion grant Customer a reasonable cure period before cancelling the Contract due to non-payment;
7.3.2 appropriate any payment made by the Customer to such of the Products as Pama may think fit (notwithstanding any purported appropriation by the Customer);
7.3.3 charge the Customer interest (both before and after judgement) on the amount unpaid at the rate of 5% per annum above HSBC Bank plc base rate from time to time until payment in full is made such interest being calculated on a daily basis.
7.4 Upon request, the customer shall provide Pama's Credit Department with copies of its annual financial statements and its quarterly statements within sixty (60) days of the close of the fiscal period to which they relate. Customer shall inform Pama promptly if there is a change of ownership or control of Customer or its direct or indirect parent company (excluding changes of ownership of the shares of a publicly quoted company which do not result in a change in control of the company's board of directors or other governing board), a management buy-out, or all or a substantial part of the Customer's assets are sold or otherwise transferred to any non-affiliated company or member of the Customer's group of companies.
7.5 In the event Customer intends to sell, assign, factor or otherwise transfer any book debt owed to Customer or to enter into any form of invoice discounting arrangement Customer agrees to inform Pama in writing prior to entering into any such arrangements.
7.6 The method of payment for Products or Services must be acceptable to Pama. Cash is not an acceptable method of payment.
7.7 If Pama issues a credit note and the Customer does not utilise the credit note within a period of 12 months from the date of its issue Pama shall have the right to cancel the credit note and the Customer shall not be entitled to a replacement or any payment in respect of the same.
7.8 Any credit balance shown on a Customer's statement of account issued by Pama which remains on the statement for a period of 12 months will be forfeited by the Customer who shall no longer have any rights to the same.
8.1 Delivery of the Products shall be made by Pama to such place as shall have been agreed between Pama and the Customer. Unless the Customer has notified Pama in writing within 3 working days of the date of Pama's invoice that the Products have not been delivered then delivery shall be deemed to have taken place in accordance with the Contract and the Customer shall not be entitled to raise any claim of short or mis-shipment.
8.2 Pama shall be entitled to assume that any person who both reasonably appears and claims to have authority to accept delivery who signs a note in respect of the Products on behalf of the Customer or the Customer's customer (if Pama has agreed to deliver direct) does in fact have the authority.
8.3 Any dates quoted for the delivery of Products are approximate only and Pama shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Products howsoever caused.
8.4 Partial delivery is allowed unless otherwise mutually agreed by both parties. Failure by Pama to deliver the rest of the Products shall not entitle the Customer to treat the order as a whole as repudiated.
8.5 For the purpose of these Conditions where Pama has agreed to deliver Products direct to the Customer's customer any such delivery shall be deemed to be delivery to the Customer and any refusal by the Customer's customer to accept delivery shall be deemed to be a refusal by the Customer.
8.6 The Customer shall bear all costs associated with the unjustified refusal of delivery of Products. If the refusal is made on the grounds that the order was wrongly placed (i.e. wrong product, wrong pricing, etc.) and the refusal is accepted by Pama, Pama reserves its right to charge accordingly additional fees for return transportation and administrative expenses related thereto, and original carriage costs will not be reimbursed.

If Pama issues an RMA number to the Customer Pama shall not send any replacement Products to the Customer until after the original Product has been returned to Pama. This Clause 10.4 shall only apply to Products the Customer is entitled to return to Pama as provided in these Conditions. The issue of an RMA number does not imply acceptance of the stated return reason.
10.5 Pama shall not be liable to the Customer for any economic or financial loss or damage (including without limit any loss of profits, loss of revenue, liabilities incurred by the Customer to third parties relating to Products delivered or Services rendered by Pama, or additional expenses incurred or the cost of time spent) or any consequential, indirect, or special loss or damage costs expenses or other claims for consequential compensation whatsoever (including without limit loss of or damage to data or loss of goodwill) incurred or suffered by the Customer and in every case howsoever caused or arising (and whether caused by the negligence of Pama its employees or agents or otherwise).

Customer agrees to hold harmless and indemnify Pama and the manufacturers against any loss, costs, and damages caused by the Customer's acts or omissions, and non-compliance with the obligations set forth in Clause 10.9, Clause 10.10 and Clause 10.11. If Customer is held liable to the Consumer caused by a Product's lack of conformity resulting from an act or omission by the manufacturer or Pama, or any other intermediary, Customer may by law or statute be entitled to pursue remedies against Pama, the manufacturer or any other person liable in the contractual chain. Provided Customer is legally entitled to pursue such remedies and Pama is held liable by a competent court of law, Pama's liability to Customer shall be limited to an amount corresponding to the Customer's original purchase price of the Product or Service giving rise to the claim by the Consumer.
10.11 Should the Product warranties offered by the manufacturers or Pama under these Conditions be restricted compared to the guarantees the Consumer is entitled to under law, the Customer agrees to take sole responsibility towards the Consumer for the excess liability and waives any claim it may have against Pama in respect of such excess.

Pama shall have no duty to defend, indemnify or hold Customer harmless from and against any or all claims brought against Customer or damages and costs incurred by Customer arising from the infringement of a third party's intellectual property rights, except to the extent Pama's supplier is offering such defence or indemnification to Pama on a pass through basis. Upon threat of claim or claim of infringement, Pama may, at its option (i) procure the right to continue using any part of Product, (ii) replace the infringing Product with a non-infringing Product of similar performance, or (iii) refund to the Buyer the purchase price paid by the Buyer for the infringing Product. Notwithstanding any other terms or conditions to the contrary Pama's liability for infringement of intellectual property rights under these Conditions shall not exceed the Customer's purchase price for the infringing Products.
