      3       Our contract with you

        3.1 This agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all previous agreements and understandings between the parties.

        3.2 Each party acknowledges that, in entering into this agreement, he does not rely on any representation, warranty, information or document or other term not forming part of this agreement.

        3.3 We may change these terms from time to time. The terms that apply to you are those posted here on Our Website on the day you order Goods.

        3.4 If in future, you buy Goods from us under any arrangement which does not involve your payment via Our Website; these terms still apply so far as they can be applied.


        4       Acceptance of your order

          4.1 Your order is an offer to buy from us. Nothing that we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually dispatch the goods to you. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods to you without giving any reason.

          4.2 If we do not have all of the Goods you order in stock, we will offer you alternatives. If this happens you may:

          • accept the alternatives we offer;
          • cancel all or part of your order.

          5       Price and Payment

            5.1 It is possible that the price may have increased from that posted on our Website. If that happens, we will not send your order until you have confirmed that you wish to buy at the new price.

            5.2 Prices include New Zealand goods and services tax. If you show by your delivery address that you reside outside New Zealand, GST will be deducted at the payment point.

            5.3 Banking charges by the receiving bank on payments to us will be borne by us. All other charges relating to payment in a currency other than New Zealand dollars will be borne by you.

            5.4 Any information given by us in relation to exchange rates are approximate only and may vary from time to time.

            5.5 If, by mistake, we have under-priced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we dispatch it to you.

            5.6 The price of the items does not include the delivery charge which will be charged at the rates applicable at the date you place your order.


            6        Payment on running credit account

            This paragraph applies only if credit facilities have been granted to you.

              6.1 Invoices will be supplied with the goods and no statements will be issued. Payment is required on the invoice.

              6.2 Payment is due to reach our account before the 20th day of the month following the month in which the goods were despatched.

              6.3 All invoices include details of our bank account so as to enable you to pay directly via the Internet.

              6.4 If money due remains overdue after one month, we reserve the right to charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 18% per annum. You agree that this does not represent a penalty but is a reasonable estimate of the loss incurred by us as a result of not having the money.


              7       Delivery and pick up

                7.1 Deliveries will be made by the Carrier to the address stipulated in your order.

                7.3 We will use the lowest cost method of delivery which is generally NZ Post, although this may change without prior notice.

                7.4 Goods to be delivered to an Auckland address may be sent by NZ Post or courier. Goods delivered outside of Auckland and internationally are sent by post unless otherwise requested and arranged prior to confirmation of the order.

                7.5 If we agree with you to deliver on a particular day or at a particular time, we will do our best to comply. But no time given is to be treated as contractual. So we are not liable to you for any expense or inconvenience you incur on account of delayed delivery or non-delivery.


                8       Foreign taxes and duties

                  8.1 If you are not in New Zealand, we have no knowledge of, and no responsibility for, the laws in your country.

                  8.2 You are responsible for purchasing Goods which you are lawfully able to import and for the payment of import duties and taxes of any kind levied in your country.

                    9.1 We will or replace Goods showing a defect in the following circumstances:

                    • the defect is reported to us within seven (7) days of purchase;
                    • the defect results only from faulty manufacture;
                    • you have returned the defective Goods to us if we have so requested.

                    9.2 If we agree that we are liable, we will refund the cost of return carriage and will replace the Goods free of charge.

                      10.4 You must tell us by email message to info@papawai.co.nz that you would like to return Goods, specifying exactly what Goods and when purchased, and giving full details of the defect or other reason for return. We will respond by email and if we accept the return of the Goods will supply instructions for the return of the Goods.

                      10.5 In returning a defective item please enclose with it a note clearly stating the defect.

                      10.6 If delivery was made to a New Zealand address, you are also protected by the Sale of Goods Act 1908 and Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.

                      10.7 If we agree that the item is faulty, we will:

                      • refund the cost of return carriage;
                      • replace the item.
