Please read the following terms and conditions carefully before placing your order. When you place an order you will be confirming your agreement to be bound by our terms and conditions of sale. If you don't agree, please do not proceed with your order.
Price and Availability
All products advertised for sale on our website and in any another publication are subject to availability. If we fail to supply any products for any reason, we will not charge you for such products. However, we will not be responsible for compensating you for any other losses, which you may suffer if we fail to supply products. All prices stated on the site or in any of our catalogues, price lists or other sales literature may be altered by us from time to time without notice to you.
Orders are fulfilled on condition that (a) title to the goods remains with Citrus Office Group until payment in full for them and all other goods supplied by Citrus Office Group has been received (b) the purchaser agrees to store the goods safely and mark them in such a way that they are readily identifiable as the property of Citrus Office Group the purchaser agrees to keep the goods supplied separately and hold them as bailee and agent for Citrus Office Group until payment in full for them has been received (d) should the goods be sold or used in the normal course of business the purchaser agrees that until full payment for them has been made a sum of money equivalent to the Invoiced value of the goods sold or used will be kept separate and identifiable (e) if the price of goods remains unpaid after the due date the seller shall have the right to enter upon any premises where the goods may be found for the purpose of recovering possession of the goods and the cost to the seller of recovering the goods will be payable by the purchaser on demand. All goods must be paid for in full upon completion of the financial transaction using either cash, cheque with relevant days allowing for clearance or credit or debit card, and Citrus Office Group has the right to demand recovery of goods if any of the above prove to be not upheld over the period of clearing the payment by the relevant financial institution. If a business credit account has been applied for and granted payment terms may be agreed outside the above conditions. However, our normal business payment terms will apply which are Nett Monthly. i.e. if goods are ordered, supplied and invoiced in month 1 payment in full must be received by no later than the end of month 2. If payment is not received within 7 days of the end of month 2 the business credit account will be suspended and no further goods will be supplied until cleared funds have been received in full to clear the debt. Citrus Office Group reserve the right to employ a third party debt collection service to recover any debt incurred and will charge all costs and interest due to the debtor.
