NB: SG distinguishes between the Customers who are Consumers as defined in terms of the Consumers Affairs Act (Chapter 378 of the Laws of Malta) (the “Act”), and those which are not. A Consumer  buys solely for his own individual use.

The aim of the present terms and conditions (hereinafter the “Terms and Conditions”) is to provide a clear definition of the terms and conditions of sale between SG and its Customers. Under the terms of this agreement, the Customer is understood to be any person or legal entity having made a purchase via the website www.icentre.com.mt whether an individual or a legal person. In the event that the terms of this agreement have a different application to a Consumer such a difference is expressly stated.

 

  1. Request for Order.
  • These Terms and Conditions will govern the purchase of goods listed on the website as available on the date the request for order is placed. Application of the relevant terms in these Terms and Conditions commences at the moment the request for order is placed by You, whether through the Internet, by e-mail, by telephone, by fax or posted mail. Should the terms of this agreement differ due to the manner in which the order was placed, such a difference is expressly stated.
  • As the acquisition of goods available on the website of SG is not a commonplace act, any Customer of SG declares that he/she has the capacity to contract on the hereinafter terms and conditions and/or is duly authorised to enter into this Agreement.
  • By submitting the request for order the Customer automatically and “ipso iure” agrees to accept the present Terms and Conditions. However the applicable terms in these Terms and Conditions are only applicable to and binding on SG once the order is confirmed by Us. These Terms and Conditions are applicable to the exclusion of (a) any previous terms and conditions given, or (b) any terms and conditions which may have been set out or indicated in any quotation given to the Customer, or (c) any advertisement, promotion, campaign or other price indication, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by both parties.  
  • Purchasing by e-mail, telephone, fax, or posted mail implies the acceptance of the present Terms and Conditions.

Information contained in our advertising or other promotional materials, brochures or other written materials, on our web sites or given to you by our agents or employees constitute an invitation to treat. No such information constitutes an offer by us to supply any goods.
  • Your request for order is a request by you to Us to check availability of the goods requested by you and to indicate to you the final price and other conditions which will enable you to purchase. Your request for order will be deemed to be an offer to us to purchase the goods you indicated. You understand that confirmation of the order is at our discretion.
  • If we accept your Order, we will notify you of our acceptance by issuing an email with an order confirmation. We will send your order confirmation by e-mail provided you have indicated an email address. Otherwise we will send the order confirmation by post. Our order confirmation will be effective upon sending.
  • To the extent possible we will use our best endeavours to confirm the request for order and your purchase.
  • Wherever this is not possible we will advise you by e-mail and offer you alternative goods of similar specifications and description.
  • You may accept our offer by e-mail within the period stated, in which case there will be a concluded agreement between us.
  • Non-confirmation of a Customer’s order may be for any one or more of the following reasons:

 

(i)              the goods (s) ordered are no longer in stock or are no longer available; or

(ii)             the price of the goods has changed, there has been identification of a pricing error or other error in the order; or

(iii)            the Customer’s payment in respect of the order is not authorised by the Customer’s payment card issuer or is otherwise       rejected/not accepted; or

(iv)            the Customer fails SG’s fraud checks and/or, creditor security checks.

  • In the event that you fail SG’s third party fraud, credit and/or security checks SG may demand payment by bank transfer.

 

  1. Your Responsibilities
  • It is your responsibility to ensure compatibility of any goods offered for sale by us both with the existing components within your system and with any other goods offered for sale by us.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure proper installation of our goods in your existing system.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that wherever and whenever necessary you access the manufacturer’s web site to download any necessary product upgrades (including drivers and manuals).
  • SG Solutions will not have any responsibility to advise the Customer of any upgrades or manufacturer modifications to the goods purchased.

 

  1. Payment and Price.
  • We shall not be bound to deliver the goods until you have paid for them. Payment shall be due when the agreement is concluded between us.
  • The price for the goods will be the price indicated on your Invoice and is inclusive of Value Added Tax.
  • Documentation is enclosed with the goods to confirm whether or not VAT was charged and the rate at which it was applied.
  • Upon placing a request for order, the Customer is to give his VAT registration number, after which our sales department attends to validating this number. The Customer is aware and accepts that VAT will be applied to any order for which a VAT registration number was not given or validated by our sales department.
  • VAT is payable by you at the applicable rate as indicated on the Invoice.
  •  Delivery costs, where applicable, are payable by you as indicated on your Invoice.
  • You may pay for your goods by the methods of payment as may be displayed on the payment section of the Web Site from time to time.
  • SG reserves the right to charge interest up to the maximum rate allowed by law as well as to refuse a delivery or honour an order from a Customer who has outstanding dues in respect of a previous order/s whether partly or in full previous order or with whom a dispute is in progress.
  • Payment of the price and value added tax needs to be settled prior to dispatch of goods. 
  • Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue daily from the date when payment becomes due until the date of payment at the maximum rate allowed in terms of law.

  • You may not withhold payment of any invoice or other amount due to us by reason of any right of set off or counterclaim which you may have or allege to have or for any other reason whatsoever.
  • Title of goods or merchandise remains vested with SG until complete payment of the delivered goods is made. This being said, upon delivery of the goods, the above mentioned provision does not protect the Customer from the risk of loss or deterioration of the goods due to the retention of the title clause, and it equally does not protect the Customer from the risk of eventual damage to the merchandise.
  • The request for order form filled out online by the Customer cannot be considered as an invoice. Subsequent to receipt of order, confirmation summary of order will be sent electronically. Regardless of the purchase or payment methods,  Invoice shall be sent to Customer simultaneously with dispatch of goods. The Customer is responsible for the information provided. No changes will be made on invoices by SG after dispatch. A digital copy of each invoice is registered in SG's data base.

  • Any return of any good for whatever reason will only be acceptable by SG if accompanied by the relative invoice.
  •  If the goods which are still under warranty, develop a fault after the first 30 days following receipt, the Customer has a right to return the goods to us so that we can send them off to be repaired under warranty on his/her behalf. No refund will be authorised for returns after 30 days of purchase. This does not affect the statutory rights of the Consumers at law.
  •  If the Customer decides to return the goods, which are still under warranty, at his cost, once the parcel is received and accepted, SG shall issue a credit equal to the amount of such fees, should the postage fees be known to SG,.

  • The Consumer will be allowed to choose between having the returned goods replaced or receiving a refund without any penalty, with the exception of return fees. The Consumer is therefore entitled to a fourteen (14) calendar day period to inform SG that it is his or her wish to cancel his or her order. Provided that in the case where the Consumer has bought the goods through the use of PayPal then a refund without penalty will be given to the Consumer after the said cancellation.
