The Customer acknowledges that it is aware of the contents of and agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

5.1. Bluey Merino will deliver the Products to the Place of Delivery.
5.2. For the efficiency of Bluey Merino’s production and fulfilment procedures, it may be necessary for Bluey Merino to deliver the Products by instalments in any sequence. Except as provided in clause 5.4, the Customer may not cancel the Contract where Products are delivered by instalments.
5.3. Any dates provided by Bluey Merino for the delivery of the Products are estimates only and will not form part of the Contract. Actual delivery date will be affected by factors such as clearance of payment, Customer’s location and availability of parts for the Products. For non-Consumer Contracts and non-Small Business Contracts, Bluey Merino will not be liable for any delay in delivery of the products and/or services, howsoever caused and for Consumer Contacts and Small Business Contracts Bluey Merino will not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Products and/or services which is outside of Bluey Merino’s control.
5.4. The Customer may cancel an order for Products purchased under a Consumer Contract or a Small Business Contract if Bluey Merino is unable to deliver the Products within a reasonable period from the estimated delivery date.
5.5. Bluey Merino has a policy of on-going Product update and revision. As a result, Bluey Merino may revise and/or discontinue Products at any time without notice.
5.6. Where Products ordered under a Consumer Contract or a Small Business Contract have been revised and/or discontinued, Bluey Merino will supply revised or updated Products with the same or better functionality and performance of the Products ordered. The Customer accepts that Bluey Merino’s policy may result in differences between the specification of Products delivered to the Customer and the specification of Products ordered.
6. ACCEPTANCE OF PRODUCTS
6.1. Unless the Customer notifies Bluey Merino to the contrary on the day of delivery and such notification is confirmed in writing within two days, the Products will be deemed to have been accepted by the Customer.

6.2. New Bluey Merino-branded Products (excluding Bluey Merino co-branded products) purchased under these Terms and Conditions directly from Bluey Merino by the Customer may be returned by the Customer up to 30 days from the date of the invoice for a replacement, refund or credit of the purchase price in accordance with Bluey Merino’s No Risk Returns and Refund Policy in effect in Australia at the date of the invoice.
6.3. Nothing in clause 6.1 or 6.2 affects a Customer’s right to claim against Bluey Merino for a faulty product under Bluey Merino’s Standard Warranty, or under their rights under statute.
7.1. Nothing in this clause 7 affects a Customer’s rights under the Australian Consumer Law.
7.2. Unless specified otherwise and in addition to any rights the Customer may have under statute and subject to this clause 7, Bluey Merino warrants to the Customer that Bluey Merino-branded products will be free from defects in materials and workmanship affecting normal use for a period of 90 days from the invoice date.
7.3. This Standard Warranty does not cover damage, fault, failure or malfunction due to external causes, including accident, abuse, misuse, usage and/or storage not in accordance with Product care or usage instructions, normal wear and tear, act of God, fire, flood, war, act of violence or any similar occurrence; and any attempt by any person other than Bluey Merino personnel or any person authorised by Bluey Merino, to alter, repair, customise or modify the Products.
7.4. Under the Standard Warranty during the 90-day period beginning on the sooner of the invoice or Order Confirmation date, Bluey Merino will repair or replace Products returned to Bluey Merino’s facility. Bluey Merino will ship the repaired or replacement products to Customer freight prepaid.

The Standard Warranty is given in place of all excludable warranties, conditions, terms, undertakings and obligations implied by statute, common law, trade usage, course of dealing or otherwise including warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for purpose, satisfactory quality and/or compliance with description. The Standard Warranty applies in additional to all consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law.
7.7. The Standard Warranty does not apply to: (a) Bluey Merino-branded goods purchased in an auction; (b) non Bluey Merino-branded products, supplied by Bluey Merino and forming part of a Product.
7.8. Bluey Merino will provide support for non Bluey Merino-branded products purchased under a Consumer Contract. Bluey Merino does not manufacture its non Bluey Merino-branded products, and may not be able to provide repair facilities or services in relation to them. The Customer acknowledges that the reasonable time for Bluey Merino to repair non Bluey Merino-branded products is longer than the reasonable time for the manufacturer to repair the same product.
7.9. Non Bluey Merino-branded products may be accompanied by their manufacturer’s standard warranties. The Customer acknowledges that where support is required in relation to non Bluey Merino-branded products it may be more efficient and expedient to seek support under the manufacturer’s standard warranties, at least at first instance.
7.10. Products presented for repair may be replaced by goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished goods may be used to repair the Products. Where a Product is repaired or replaced under the Standard Warranty, the Product will be warranted for the balance of the original Standard Warranty period.
8.1. For goods and services which are not supplied under a Consumer Contract or Small Business Contract Bluey Merino’s total liability in respect of each event or series of connected events will not exceed the total price paid for the purchase of products and/or services under these Terms and Conditions.
8.2. The Customer will indemnify Bluey Merino and keep Bluey Merino fully and effectively indemnified against any loss of or damage to any property or injury to or death of any persons caused by any negligent act or omission or wilful misconduct of the Customer, its employees, agents or sub-contractors in connection with the purchase, use or performance of any Bluey Merino products or services.
8.3. Bluey Merino excludes liability for all consequential loss arising out of or in connection with the purchase, use or performance of any products or services by the Customer from Bluey Merino, including liability for any damage to personal property or any personal injury whether direct or indirect, or any kind, unless: (a) such loss could have been expected to result from a failure by Bluey Merino to meet a consumer guarantee and such loss was reasonably foreseeable; or (b) where Bluey Merino is the manufacturer or importer of the relevant products and such loss has arisen due to the relevant products having a safety defect within the meaning of section 9 of the Australian Consumer Law and further that none of the defences established under section 142 of the Australian Consumer Law apply to the relevant products.
8.4. To the extent permitted by law, any typographical, clerical or other error or omission in sales literature, quotation, price list, acceptance of offer, invoice or other documents or information issued by Bluey Merino will be subject to correction without any liability on the part of Bluey Merino.
8.5. In relation to goods or services that are not of a kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption, Bluey Merino’s liability for breach of a guarantee implied into a Contract which cannot lawfully be excluded is limited, at Bluey Merino’s option, to: (a) in the case of Products, the replacement of the Products or the supply of equivalent Products; the repair of such Products; the payment of the cost of replacing the Products or of acquiring equivalent products; or the payment of the cost of having the Products repaired; OR (b) in the case of services, the supplying of services again; or the payment of the cost of having services supplied again.

12. EXPORT RESTRICTIONS
The Customer acknowledges that the Products licensed or sold hereunder, are not only subject to the export control laws and regulations of Australia but may also be subject to the export control laws and regulations of the country in which the Products are received. The Customer agrees to abide by all applicable export control laws and regulations. The Customer understands that applicable requirements or restrictions may vary depending on the Products delivered and may change over time and that, to determine the precise controls applicable to the Products acquired, it may be necessary to refer to relevant laws and regulations.
