(ii) For Account Customers payment is to be made thirty days from the date of the Statement. It is agreed that if the Customer does not make payment within the period specified by the Seller then the Customer will pay to the Seller by way of liquidated damages a default charge calculated by application of a daily percentage rate of 0.05% on the unpaid balance of the amount due from the due date for payment until the date that the total sum due to the Seller is paid in full. (iii) If the Customer fails to make payment at the due time the Seller shall be entitled to suspend or cancel work (including despatch) on other orders outstanding from the Customer without prejudice to the Seller’s rights to receive payment for the work already carried out on those orders and to recover the sum unpaid on any previous order.

3. Claims: Upon receipt of goods the Customer shall immediately inspect the same. No claim of any kind will be enforceable against the Seller unless made in writing within seven (7) days of the receipt of the goods by the Customer. GOODS CUT TO SIZE, MACHINED OR FABRICATED ARE NOT RETURNABLE.

13. Certificate: A Certificate signed by an officer of the Seller will be prima facie evidence of the Customer’s liability to the Seller at the date of the Certificate.

14. Jurisdiction: The proper law of all contracts arising between the Seller and the Customer is the law of the State or Territory in which the Seller’s principal office is located and the parties agree that all claims and disputes relating to the goods shall be determined in a Court of competent jurisdiction nearest such principal office and the parties irrevocably agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of such Court.
