16 Guidelines and Expectations

16.1 The Client acknowledges and agrees that:

16.1.1 Goods made by CDH are handmade and hand finished. Each piece is unique. Variations in texture, dimension, colour and aggregate distribution and exposure within a final product may occur and are considered an inherent property of our handmade products and is not considered to be a “defect” in accordance with Clause 16;

16.1.2 Samples of any material may not precisely represent material the client will receive. Shades of colour for example, may vary per shipment due to the inherent nature of the materials used. For example, the humidity on the day the concrete is poured can subtly affect the colour of the cured concrete’

16.1.3 “Variegated” colours are highly variable in pattern. The pattern may be different from samples in density, size and distribution of patterning. The pattern may vary from any sample provided;

16.1.4 Imbedded objects such as glass chips, metal shaving or stones are randomly distributed and tend to shift during the casting process. Every reasonable effort is made by CDH to use the size and density of objects shown in a sample, but size and density will vary throughout the finished Goods;

16.1.5 Imbedded metal shavings are composed of stainless steel, steel and other metals, and composition of the shavings is not under CDH’s control and some rust may occur on some shavings and should be considered inherent in the look of the Goods;

16.1.6 Hairline cracks that may occur in the finished product are a natural characteristic of concrete. Hairline cracks do not affect the structural integrity of the concrete;

16.1.7 Seaming may be required for layouts designed to exceed maximum casting lengths. Seams are kept to a tolerance not to exceed 7mm difference from the templates. Seams are filled with a colour coordinating acrylic caulk after slabs are placed. CDH will provide the client with a seam design after templating;

16.1.8 Undermount sinks will be mounted with a slight overhang of the counter top over the flange of the sink, so that the flange is not visible unless otherwise specified by the Client. All sizes are nominal and slight variations in thickness and other dimensions of the Goods are to be expected.

17 Intellectual Property

17.1 Where CDH has designed, drawn or developed Goods for the Client, then the intellectual property in those documents shall remain the property of CDH.

17.2 The Client warrants that all designs, specifications or instructions given to CDH will not cause CDH to infringe any patent, registered design or trade mark in the execution of the Client’s order and the Client agrees to indemnify CDH against any action taken by a third party against CDH in respect of any such infringement.

17.3 The Client agrees that CDH may (at no cost) use for the purposes of marketing or entry into any competition, any documents, designs, drawings, photographs or goods which CDH has created for the Client.

18 Interest on Default of Payment

18.1 Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue daily from the date when payment becomes due, until the date that payment is received, at the rate of 10% per annum.

19 Cancellation

19.1 CDH may cancel any Contract to which these terms and conditions apply or cancel delivery at any time before the Goods are delivered by giving written notice to the Client. On giving such notice, CDH shall repay to the Client any money paid by the Client for the Goods. CDH shall not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever arising from such cancellation.

19.2 In the event that the Client cancels any order or delivery then the Client shall be liable for any and all loss incurred by CDH up to the date of the cancellation and/or as a direct result of the cancellation.

20 Severance

20.1 The failure by CDH to enforce any provision of these terms and conditions shall not be treated as a waiver of that provision, nor shall it affect CDH’s right to subsequently enforce that provision. If any provision of these terms and conditions shall be invalid, void, illegal or unenforceable then that clause can be severed without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the terms and conditions.

21 Jurisdiction

21.1 These terms and conditions and any contract or agreement to which these terms and conditions apply shall be governed by the laws of the State of Queensland.

22 General

22.1 Subject to clause 16, CDH shall be under no liability whatsoever to the Client for any indirect and/or consequential loss and/or expense suffered by the Client or alternatively any liability on the part of CDH shall be limited to damages which under no circumstances shall exceed the Price.

22.2 CDH reserves the right to subcontract all or any part of its rights and obligations without the Client’s consent. The Client agrees that CDH may amend these terms and conditions at any time and any changes will take effect from the date on which CDH notifies the Client of such changes or amendments and the Client will be taken to have accepted any amendments and changes if the Client makes further request for CDH to provide Goods to the Client.

23 Force Mejeure

23.1 CDH will not be liable to the Client for any failure to perform, or delay in performing, CDH’s obligations under these terms and conditions if the failure or delay is due to any cause beyond CDH’s reasonable control and if any such failure or delay continues for a period of fourteen (14) days CDH may terminate any affected Contract.
