Wordstream Terms of Business

1. These terms and conditions are in addition to, and do not supercede, the terms and conditions contained in any relevant software licence agreement between an End User and Wordstream Corporation Limited.

2. All prices for Wordstream goods and services are quoted in New Zealand dollars (unless specifically stated) and do not include GST (Goods & Services Tax) unless otherwise stated. GST will be added to the price of any order unless the entity ordering (or the transaction) is GST exempt. It is the responsibility of the person ordering to provide documentary evidence of any exemption from GST.

3. End Users outside New Zealand: The Māori resource products shown on are primarily intended for New Zealand End Users. However we will supply End Users located outside New Zealand strictly on a pre-paid, freight additional basis. Such supply will be an indulgence on the part of Wordstream and the parties agree that the contract or agreement for any such supply is formed and executed in New Zealand and is subject to and governed by New Zealand law, and any dispute will be exclusively under the jurisdiction of, and judged by, the Courts of New Zealand.

4. No Credit: Wordstream does not extend credit facilities to any individual or organization (who does not already have an account with Wordstream), until after the first order is pre-paid. Credit facilities, after the first order, are subject to application and approval at the sole discretion of Wordstream.

5. Consumer Guarantees Act 1993: If you acquire, or hold yourself out as acquiring, goods and services from Wordstream for the purposes of a business (with "purposes of a business" including "purposes of your occupation") then it is implicit in these terms and conditions, or in any Wordstream end user licence agreement, that the provisions of the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 shall not apply.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

1. End Users who have acquired Wordstream products or services for non-business use have certain rights under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and the following policies ONLY apply where:
a) cancellation of a software licence or subscription is NOT a result of a right or rights under that Act, or any other NZ Statute; or
b) The End user has acquired the licence or subscription for the purposes of a business or for use in an occupation.

2. CD-ROM and other "off-line" products: Cancellation is governed by the terms of the relevant software licence. Any end user can cancel a licence PRIOR to loading software that is supplied on CD-ROM and return the software package, including all material, for a refund of the licence fee, less any shipping costs incurred by Wordstream in delivering the order.
Where an end user wishes to cancel a licence AFTER the software has been loaded, then that end user must first communicate with Wordstream so that Wordstream can determine at its sole discretion whether or not a refund of some or all of the licence fee paid is appropriate, and so that Wordstream can satisfy itself that the software licence and/or copyright has not, or will not, be breached.

3. On-line subscription services. Any customer may cancel an on-line subscription at any time, and for any reason - and the following refund policy will apply:
Cancellation within 14 days: Refund of subscription fee less $ 50.00 (plus gst) administration costs.
Cancellation after 14 days and prior to 182 days: Six month subscription - a refund of the subscription fee not used, less $ 50.00 administration costs. 12 month subscription - 50% refund less $ 50.00 (plus gst) administration costs.
Any "one-time" IP setup fee charged at the time of first subscribing is strictly non-refundable.

4. For specific provisions as to warranty refer to the applicable Wordstream software or subscription licence agreement.
