Clegg Media are not liable for any errors not corrected by the client prior to proof approval by the client.

Should a client require a sample colour print on the required stock to unsure colour accuracy this will be provided at an additional charge.
5.1. Any date quoted for delivery is an estimate only and Clegg Media shall not be liable to the purchaser other party for any loss or damage including consequential loss howsoever arising even if arising out of negligence of Clegg Media for failure to deliver on or before the quoted delivery date unless Clegg Media expressly guaranteed in writing to deliver the goods by the delivery date.
5.2. The purchaser shall accept and pay for the goods if and when tendered notwithstanding any failure by Clegg Media to deliver by the quoted date. Written advice to the purchaser that goods are ready for delivery whether in whole or in part shall constitute tendering and the terms of payment set out below shall apply.
5.3. Clegg Media reserves the right to deliver the goods or services by installments. If delivery is made by installments, the purchaser shall not be entitled to: (a) Terminate or cancel the contract: or (b) Any claim for loss or damage howsoever arising for failure by Clegg Media to delivery any installments on or before the quoted dates.

7. Payment & charges
7.1. These payment terms shall be of the essence of the contract.
7.2. GST (currently 10%) is payable in addition to the purchase price.
7.3. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, payment terms are as stated on the invoice. Amounts not paid within thirty days of the date of invoice will be subject to a late payment charge of 1.0% per month on the unpaid balance to be included on each month’s statement until paid. The imposition of such charge is not intended to infer any consent, acquiescence or other agreement, expressed or implied, on the part of Clegg Media to forbear or otherwise defer collection of such amounts when due. To the contrary, Clegg Media expects payment on or before the due date of each invoice and intends to take all necessary and feasible action to enforce prompt payment. The Purchaser confirms, acknowledges and agrees that it would be impracticable, extremely difficult and unduly expensive to attempt to determine the actual damage sustained by the Company as the result of the default in payment of any individual account and that the charge of 1.0% per month referred to above represents a reasonable endeavour to fix the Clegg Media’s minimum probable loss resulting from delinquent payment, that such charge bears a reasonable relation to such loss and that such charge is reasonable in amount. If in the Company’s opinion the Purchaser’s financial condition does not justify continuance of production or shipment on the terms of payment specified, the Company may require payments in advance. Failure of the Purchaser to pay any Clegg Media invoice by its due date makes all subsequent invoices immediately due and payable irrespective of terms.
7.4. Credit Card surcharge of 2% applies.
8. Credit Limit
The grant of any credit limit or facility is an indication only of Clegg Media’s intention at that time. Clegg Media may at any time or at its discretion vary and/or withdraw any credit limit or facility without liability to Clegg Media or any other party.
Orders cannot be cancelled except upon terms, which will fully compensate Clegg Media against all and any loss occasioned to it as a consequence of such cancellation.
10. Retention of title
10.1. Notwithstanding the delivery of the goods or part thereof, the goods remain the sole and absolute property of Clegg Media as full legal and equitable owner until such time as the purchaser shall have paid Clegg Media the full purchase price together with the full price of any other goods the subject of any other contract with Clegg Media.
10.2. The purchaser acknowledges that he receives possession of and holds goods delivered by Clegg Media solely as Bailee for Clegg Media until such time as the full price thereof is paid to Clegg Media together with the price of any other goods then the subject of any other contract with Clegg Media.
