Payment

Cash or Personal Cheque with Bankers Card, all major Credit/Debit Cards, Bankers Draft or Electronic Fund Transfer are all acceptable methods of payment, unless stated otherwise. Our Terms are payment in full within thirty days, unless stated otherwise. All goods remain the property of the Company until paid for in full. Monies that remain outstanding by the due date will incur late payment interest at the rate of 8% per annum, calculated at a daily rate of 0.022% on the outstanding balance until such time as the balance is paid in full and final settlement. Interest is based on the ECB rate of 1% plus the margin of 7%. We reserve the right to seek recovery of any monies remaining unpaid sixty days from the date of invoice via collection agencies and/or through any other means which we consider appropriate. In such circumstances, you shall be liable for any and all additional administrative and/or court costs. 

Returned cheques will incur a charge to cover banking fees and administrative costs. In an instance of a second Returned cheque, we reserve the right to terminate the arrangement and, if agreed to, we shall insist on future cash transactions only. Consequently, all bookings and/or transactions and agreements entered into will cease with immediate effect until such time as any and all outstanding monies are recovered in full.   

 

Title of Goods

Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until Folens has received payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for: (a) the Goods; and (b) any other goods that Folens has supplied to the Customer in respect of which payment has become due. Until title to the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall: (a) hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as bailee only; (b) store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as Folens property; and (c) maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery. Shortages must be reported within 24 hours.

 

Returns Policy

Goods are only accepted back for redit under the following conditions:
(a) We receive prior written notice.
(b) Such returns are not in excess of 4% of your purchases.
(c) Invoices are available as proof of purchase.
(d) The goods are in resalable condition (unmarked, etc.).

We accept no liability for any returns sent to us without prior acceptance. We reserve the right to accept or reject any request and in the event of acceptance, we will credit your account with an amount equal to the purchase invoice.

 

Termination of Agreements and Refunds Policy

Both the Client and ourselves have the right to terminate any Services Agreement for any reason, including the ending of services that are already underway. No refunds shall be offered where a Service is deemed to have begun and is, for all intents and purposes, underway. Any monies that have been paid to us which constitute payment in respect of the provision of unused Services, shall be refunded.
