10           Price of Products and delivery charges

10.1       The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time.  All prices are in New Zealand dollars.  We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of the Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered on to the system.  However, if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 10.5 for what happens in this event.

10.2       Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.

10.3       The price of a Product deliverable in New Zealand includes GST at the applicable current rate chargeable in New Zealand for the time being.  However, if the rate of GST changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the GST you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in GST takes effect.

10.4       The price of a Product does not include delivery charges.  The delivery charges are calculated in the Shopping Cart as a result of the volume of materials to be dispatched. This is calculated prior to checkout.

10.5       Our site contains a large number of Products.  It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced.  If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will inform you in writing of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order.  We will not process your order until we have your instructions.  If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.  Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

15.5       If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations.  If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
