Payment of invoices relating to goods sold on credit shall be received by Everything EPOS in full within 30 days from date of invoice. Deposits, pre-installation charges, and other items marked for payment on invoice are due for immediate payment irrespective of special credit terms.

Your use of the software is entirely at your own risk. Should the software prove defective, you assume the entire cost of all service, repair, or correction.
Goods under manufacturer warranty are covered only by that warranty, and no additional warranty, either expressed or implied, is made by Everything EPOS. No warranty is made, either expressed or implied, that goods supplied by Everything EPOS are suitable for a specific task, nor that the products supplied, or the features or the operations thereof will match the Customer's personal tastes or preferences, merely that goods are supplied in working order. 

Similarly, matters of compatibility between products are not the responsibility of Everything EPOS, including but not limited to networks, software, and separate peripheral devices, whether or not such goods were provided by Everything EPOS, unless an undertaking has been given in writing by Everything EPOS that the goods supplied were specifically intended to work in conjunction with each other, rather than independently, and that Everything EPOS will assume responsibility to ensure that they will operate together.
14)Induction & Mode of Operation: 
The customer should be aware that a certain amount of learning time in inevitable with a computer system, that there may be problems associated with the introduction, operation, and upgrading of a system, and that time may need to be expended by the customer in order to overcome such problems. 

To minimise the consequences of initiating a system it is vital that the customer tests the software with the customer's own sample data and run any existing system in parallel with the new Everything EPOS software (including any new Everything EPOS upgrades supplied) until the customer is fully satisfied with the new system's operation and the abilities of the customer's staff to use it. Under no circumstances can Everything EPOS be held responsible for damages, claims for loss of income or consequential loss. 

Whilst we will make reasonable endeavours to help within the Everything EPOS Care support contract in force, Everything EPOS cannot be expected to resolve problems without investment of time. Everything EPOS may not be held liable for the specification claims made by the manufacturer or supplier of any products, and any claims concerning specification details or promises made verbally or in writing by a party other than Everything EPOS should be addressed to the publisher of such specifications or promises. Everything EPOS does not guarantee to solve all induction or operation problems, and reserves the right to charge for work carried out in pursuit of their resolution. 

Speed and manner of operation, speed of networks, processing and output (on a printer or other form of output device) are all subject to the constraints of technology and personal opinion. Each individual configuration may differ from similar configurations dependent on memory, CPU, network and software type, and numerous other factors. Everything EPOS can make no warranty that any facet of any products will operate at a certain speed or in a certain way. It is Everything EPOS’s recommendation that, where speed is important, the fastest possible configuration is purchased. If speed is at any time considered insufficient, Everything EPOS will endeavour to recommend a suitable upgrade, where available, or will recommend that the Customer communicate direct with a suitable third-party supplier.
Goods may be returned to Everything EPOS with the prior written approval from Everything EPOS. These goods must be undamaged, in their original packaging and in a resalable condition. Any damaged products must be paid for at its full retail value.

Such work is chargeable at the prevailing hourly rate, plus a minimum callout fee for each visit made. 

All products supplied by Everything EPOS remain the property of Everything EPOS or its agent, and must be returned on demand. Should the customer not return the goods within the specified rental period, or should Everything EPOS request return of the goods and the customer not comply within three days, Everything EPOS reserves the right to charge a premium rate not exceeding 5% of the full retail value of the goods supplied by Everything EPOS at the time of order, and for each day return of the products is overdue, unless an extension to the rental period is agreed in writing by Everything EPOS. 

The customer is responsible at all times for the care of products whilst in its custody, and will be charged for any damage, howsoever caused, during the period of that custody. The customer may not loan products on rental to any other party or a assign rental of the products to another party, unless such change is agreed by Everything EPOS.

The Everything EPOS Help desk provides support by telephone during normal office hours. Support is provided under the provisions of a Everything EPOS Care Contract, which becomes active as soon as a correct, signed service contract covering all software supplied is returned to Everything EPOS with the full remittance. Support may be suspended where payment for any item has not been received according to Everything EPOS’s payment terms, or where the Everything EPOS Care Contract in force does not cover all software supplied. 

Callout to the customer's premises is not normally provided by Everything EPOS, and will normally be provided by a contracting agent. Site visits at the customer's request will be charged at the prevailing hourly rate for time on site and travelling time plus expenses. A call-out fee may also be charged, whether or not a fault was found or rectified. Unless the customer informs Everything EPOS at least 24 hours in advance that he wishes to cancel the visit, or such cost is covered by the provisions of a special service contract. 

If a contract is allowed to lapse for a period, payment for the resulting back log will be required by Everything EPOS before resumption of contract and despatch of upgrades. All contract support work is subject to the terms laid down in the various levels of Everything EPOS Care agreement, and excludes responsibility for issues which would be better resolved by training, responsibility for matters relating solely to third parties including ACI and 4th Dimension, or for data corruption or data loss. 

It is vital to back up all data at least once every day, and Everything EPOS assumes no responsibility for backups or data security. Everything EPOS software upgrades are supplied under contract where the customer is covered by a suitable contract, where payment is up-to-date, and where payment for the contract is made by Standing Order. Without prejudice to the conditions of those contracts, all maintenance agreements are automatically renewed, and may only be terminated after the contract expires with three months' notice from either party.
21)Force Majeure: 
If the performance of its obligation under this contract is in any way adversely affected by any cause whatsoever beyond Everything EPOS’s control, including, but not limited to the delays, contractual conditions or defaults of suppliers or the default of any subcontractor, agents, war, trade dispute, strike, lock-out, government restriction, breakdown, flood, accident, act of God, shortage of materials or labour, Everything EPOS shall:

      (a) In any event not be liable for any direct or indirect loss or damage, and 
      (b) Be entitled to cancel or rescind the contract, or to suspend delivery thereunder for such a period thought fit by Everything EPOS.

Any deposits paid shall therefore be forfeited by the customer, and Everything EPOS reserves the right to levy a rental fee (in accordance with the provisions or paragraph 14 above) if any goods have been delivered to the customer.
No forbearance, delay, or indulgence by either party in enforcing its respective rights shall prejudice or restrict the rights of that third party, and no waiver of any such rights or any breach of any contractual terms shall be deemed to be a waiver of that term, of any other right or any later breach. These conditions cannot be waived by any party, unless in a subsequent edition of Everything EPOS’s Conditions of Sale published by Everything EPOS.

Everything EPOS cannot be held liable for problems caused by computer virus or any other factor whose provenance is outside Everything EPOS’s direct cause.

These conditions and contract to which this document relates shall in all respects be construed and operate in accordance with English Law. The legitimacy of any individual clause or element thereof shall not prejudice that of any other clause or element thereof in this contract.
