1.      Purpose

The purpose of this document is to record the general terms and conditions of our relationship, for renting Equipment to you. On every occasion that we rent Equipment to you we will enter into a separate document called a “Rental Agreement” that records the details of the particular equipment rented and any varied or additional terms and conditions applying to that transaction. Whenever a Rental Agreement is varied or replaced there will be a new Rental Agreement signed, in the same format, recording the varied or new terms or details. If you wish to authorise a person to sign Rental Agreements (or variations) and that person is not a director or other person who is authorised by law or by your constitutional document to sign a binding formal deed or contract then you must first provide us with evidence, in any form we may require, that the signatory is properly authorised by you.

2.      Defined Terms

Where a word or phrase appears in this document commencing in uppercase (e.g., “Equipment”) that signifies that it is given a particular meaning for the purposes of this Agreement, as set out in clause 22 This is to ensure certainty of meaning whenever that word or phrase appears.

3.      Commencement

This Agreement commences on the date where you have signed it or (if earlier) when you first take possession of Rental Equipment.

4.      Term

This Agreement continues until it is cancelled. It may be cancelled by agreement between us. We may also cancel it if you fail to perform an agreed obligation if you cease trading or if you are in receivership or administration or bankrupted. If this Agreement is cancelled, we will no longer be in a customer/supplier relationship, but we will each remain liable to perform obligations which arose prior to cancellation. Cancellation of this Agreement does not necessarily affect individual Rental Agreements which may (at our option) continue according to their recorded terms.

If a Rental Agreement is for any reason cancelled or terminates prior to expiry of the Rental Term rental payments must still be paid to us for the remaining Rental Term. Return of the equipment does not affect this obligation. This remaining rental must be paid to us in one sum on the date of cancellation or termination.

On expiry of a Rental Agreement, or if the Rental Agreement is for any reason terminated or cancelled prior to expiry of the Rental Term, all Equipment rented by you must be returned to us in good working order. If it is not so returned you will in addition then pay us a sum equal to the market value of the Equipment. That value will be assessed by us based on the value attributed to the affected Equipment at the start of the Rental Term, less any deduction for age that we may at our discretion allow if the Equipment has been rented to you for more than 24 months.

Rental Agreements will automatically renew for a new Term of the same duration and on the same terms and conditions as the expiring Term unless within 90 days prior to expiry you give us notice that you do not wish to renew.

Any amounts payable by you under this clause are a debt due by you immediately we make a demand for payment.

We may terminate this Agreement and any Rental Agreement if:

      4.1.1. You are wound up, placed in receivership or administration or steps are taken that may lead to such event; or you file a voluntary winding up petition or a liquidator or administrator is appointed.

      4.1.2. You cease to use Rented Equipment in accordance with usual or recommended modes of operation, or otherwise use the Rented Equipment or its Software in a way that compromises their integrity.

      4.1.3. You cease to have possession or control of Rented Equipment

      4.1.4. A payment is on any occasion not made as and when it is due (time being of the essence).

In the case of sub-clauses 4.1.1 to 4.1.3 inclusive no prior notice is required for termination. In the case of sub clause 4.1.4 we will give not less than 7 days prior notice of termination.

On termination by us under this clause we may immediately Deactivate Rented Equipment.

5.      Review

From time we may by mutual agreement review and/or vary the terms of this Agreement. Any variation to the cost or terms of supply will only apply to orders made or Services provided after we have sent you the notice of the variation.


This section records our respective contractual rights and obligations with each other.

8.      Title and Risk/Security Interest.

8.1. You will not take legal title to Equipment rented to you. We retain full legal title as owner.

8.2. As you are the owner as you take delivery of rented Equipment it is at your risk. This means that you must insure the Equipment from this time and if it is then damaged or lost we are not responsible for repair or replacement.

8.3. To protect our interest as owner of rented Equipment we hold a “security interest” under this Agreement and in every Rental Agreement, as this term is defined in the Personal Property Securities Act. We are entitled to all rights of a secured party under that Act. You will sign and do all things we need to register our security interest on the Personal Property Securities Register (which is defined in that Act). We are entitled to enter any premiseswhere we believe rented Equipment is located to inspect and/or retake possession of it.


9.      Use of Equipment

9.1. In respect of rented Equipment, you will:

(a) only use the Equipment in accordance with user instructions from us or from the manufacturer, andalso comply with the terms of the Software Licence.

(b) keep the Equipment in good order and repair (fair wear and tear excepted) and properly operated.

This section refers to the nature of the Equipment and Services we rent.

10.   Hardware

We supply EFTPOS and point of sale equipment described in product catalogues which we publish from time. We will do our best to ensure that all Equipment supplied to you meets our advertised standards and functionality. We may change products from time to time and we cannot guarantee that at any time we will have advertised Equipment immediately available.

11.   Software

The Equipment runs on Operating Software, the terms of use for which are recorded in a Software Licence. A copy of the Software Licence current at the date of this Agreement is attached as “Annexure B”. It is essential that all users of the Equipment understand that failure to comply with the terms of the Software Licence entitles us to Deactivate the Operating Software (either temporarily or permanently depending on the nature of the breach). If we do this the Equipment will not function. To ensure ongoing compliance requirements are met and to keep up with technological updates, we need to upgrade Operating Software from time to time. To meet the costs of our doing so there is under the Software Licence a monthly service fee levied against anytime of Equipment rented out. The levy is in your case included in the rental fee. We ask that you ensure any users of the Equipment rented to you are aware of the terms of the Software Licence (including in particular the possibility we may Deactivate the Equipment) and you will indemnify us for any liability or losses or costs we suffer or incur on any occasion that we exercise this right.

12.   Support Services

Together with the supply of Equipment we may agree to provide additional Services to support them (in addition to regular Operating Software upgrades under clause 12). The cost of these Services may or may not be additional to Rental Payments. This is subject to negotiation on a case-by-case basis.


This section deals with the various general matters typically found in commercial contracts and sometimes known as “boiler plate” clauses.

13.   Assignment

From time to time, you may wish to sell all, or parts of, your business and in doing so to assign to the purchaser your rights in rented Equipment. This is permitted but only if we agree to it, however if we do agree that will not affect our prior business dealings. We can give consent subject to conditions. If your business is sold, we will require a new Master Rental Agreement with the purchaser for ongoing business. If you are a company or other incorporated entity a change of a controlling interest in the shares or ownership is considered an assignment for these purposes. We may sell our business (in whole or in part). If we do that all our rights and interests in this Agreement and contracts entered in connection with our business relationship may be assigned to the purchaser, and you agree to sign any documents needed to record this new relationship. We may also assign individual Rental Agreements (which may be part of a financing arrangement). If we do this, you will be notified of the assignee’s details and the new payment arrangements.

14.   Default

If you Default in making a payment, we can require you to pay Penalty Interest on the outstanding amount until it is paid to us in full. Additionally, if you Default in performing any other obligation, we can require you to pay Penalty Interest until that Default is remedied. If we incur any loss or expense in taking advice or enforcing our rights (or attempting to do so) you will reimburse us for those costs. Our other remedies if you Default are to pursue our general legal rights – including to cancel or seek specific performance, sue for damages or to seek an injunction if urgent action is required.

15.   Warranties/Faulty Equipment

We warrant that the Equipment will function in the manner we have agreed with you. Attached as “Annexure C” is our standard Hardware Warranty which provides a further warranty. These are the only warranties we give. We are not providing any other warranties and you must ensure that the Equipment meets your needs. If any Equipment rented to you is faulty, we will repair or replace the Equipment with the same or an equivalent solution. This obligation is read subject to our respective obligations and other agreements.

16.    Intellectual Property Rights

Intellectual Property Rights owned by a manufacturer, or by us, do not transfer to you when we rent Equipment to you. If you become aware of any third-party misuse of Intellectual Property Rights you will advise us so that we can attempt to protect them.

17.    Force Majeure

If a Force Majeure event prevents or restricts us from meeting any commitments under this Agreement then we are excusedfrom that commitment, but we must otherwise meet our agreed obligations.

18.   Severability/Modification

If any wording, term or condition of this Agreement is found by a court of law to be illegal or unenforceable then that wording, term or condition will be disregarded, or modified, to the extent required to ensure that this Agreement is otherwise fully enforceable as it is intended to be.

19.    Jurisdiction/New Zealand Law Applies

If there is a dispute or legal action in connection with this Agreement it must be heard in a New Zealand Court, and New Zealandlaws apply to it.
