GENERAL All orders for products and services on the Chee Fatt Co Pte Ltd (‘Chee Fatt’) website are accepted by Chee Fatt subject to these terms and conditions of sale. No other terms will apply to the supply of products and services by Chee Fatt unless agreed in writing by an authorized signatory of Chee Fatt or expressly stated otherwise in these terms and conditions of sale.
All descriptions of the products and services contained on the Chee Fatt website or otherwise communicated to the Customer are approximate only and shall not form any part of the contract between Chee Fatt and the Customer. Chee Fatt shall not be liable to the Customer for any errors or omissions in its catalogue.
The advertising of products and services on the Chee Fatt website is not an offer capable of acceptance, it merely constitutes an invitation by Chee Fatt for the Customer to make an offer to purchase products and services.
These terms and conditions of sale do not apply to export transactions, to which separate terms and conditions of sale apply.
Chee Fatt is a business-to-business supplier. The Chee Fatt website is intended for use by business customers and not by consumers or private individuals. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions of sale shall affect the statutory rights of a Customer who deals as a consumer.
PRICES The prices of the products and services are as set out on the Chee Fatt website at the date of despatch of the ordered products or the date of provision of the ordered services. Chee Fatt Customer is informed that prices and products in the printed hard copy catalogue (if any) are subject to changes. Chee Fatt reserves the right to change prices without prior notice at any time. All prices exclude GST, which Chee Fatt will add at the rate applicable at the date of order despatch.
ORDERING Chee Fatt reserves the right to decline to trade with any company or person. In addition, Chee Fatt may decline to accept any order, whether or not payment has been received, by giving notice of non-acceptance to the Customer by telephone, facsimile or email within a reasonable period of receipt by Chee Fatt of the order.
Chee Fatt executes orders to the Customer's requirements, and does not substitute one product for another unless requested by the Customer, or unless the product has been superseded by the latest version. To the extent that orders cannot be fulfilled completely from stock, the unfulfilled balance will (at the Customer's option) either be put on back order to be fulfilled when Chee Fatt stock becomes available or be cancelled.
The Customer must submit orders using the Chee Fatt stock numbers and/or manufacturer part number (where applicable) and the priced units used in the Chee Fatt website. Delivery option must be specified when required.
If the Customer orders the wrong product or number of products, or duplicates orders, the provisions of clause 4 will apply.
RETURNS & CANCELLATIONS The Customer may not cancel orders once accepted by Chee Fatt. Chee Fatt may, at its discretion and in writing, allow an order to be cancelled subject to Chee Fatt recovering from the Customer the costs incurred by Chee Fatt. In the event of cancellation of part of any order only, Chee Fatt may invoice the Customer any difference in selling price per unit applicable to the quantity actually despatched up to the time of cancellation compared to the quantity ordered.
The Customer may only return products to Chee Fatt, and receive a credit or refund and on the following conditions: The Customer must contact Chee Fatt prior to the return of any products and obtain Chee Fatt’s prior consent and obtain a return note (to be quoted on all returned paperwork);
Any returns must be made within 30 days of the date of delivery (as stated on the delivery documentation). Products must be returned to Chee Fatt in their original condition and packaging and in a condition which will enable them to be immediately fit for re-sale.

For products returned due to Customer error or no longer required and returned, above a handling charge will be applied. This handling charge is set out on the Chee Fatt website.
Where the Customer returns products to Chee Fatt not in accordance with (i) - (iii) above (for example, after 30-days from the date of dispatch or in an unfit state) Chee Fatt will refuse delivery and return the products at the Customer's expense or may apply a handling charge which relates to the actual cost of reprocessing (subject to the minimum charge set out on the Chee Fatt website).
This returns policy excludes software, calibrated products, production packaging products, non-catalogue products, extended range products and specially manufactured products. In addition, Chee Fatt will not accept returned sensitive devices (e.g. ESD, certain measurement products) where the integrity of the original packaging has been compromised e.g. the bag has been opened and resealed or multiple bags have been stapled together.
Chee Fatt accepts no responsibility for any loss of or damage to products in transit from Customer to Chee Fatt or for any items received by Chee Fatt with them.
DELIVERY Chee Fatt will aim to deliver products in accordance with the Customer's order. The Customer's delivery options, and the prices for them, are set out on the Chee Fatt website current at the date of order or will be notified to the Customer at the time of order. Customer is informed that delivery options and prices in the printed hard copy catalogue are subject to changes. Delivery prices may be applicable per order, irrespective of the number of products ordered. Delivery will be made to the Customer's usual business address, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
Times and dates for delivery quoted on the Chee Fatt website or by Chee Fatt 's employees are approximate only and Chee Fatt shall not be liable for the consequences of any delay in delivery. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence. Delivery of products marked in the website as requiring special handling may take up to 3 to 5 working days after acceptance of the Customer's order.
If any delivery is late, the Customer must notify Chee Fatt, and Chee Fatt will endeavor to ascertain if the product has been delivered or the expected delivery time of the product to the Customer. Chee Fatt may also, at its discretion, refund the total delivery charge to the Customer. If a revised delivery time is not acceptable Chee Fatt may also, at its discretion, offer an alternative delivery option. These are the Customer's exclusive remedies for late delivery.
Chee Fatt may, following Customer's order, notify the Customer if Chee Fatt is unable to fulfill any order within that published lead time, and will provide alternative options.
INSPECTION, DELIVERY DELAYS AND NON-DELIVERY The Customer must inspect the products as soon as is reasonably possible after delivery and shall, within 7 days of the date of delivery or, in the case of clause iv, the due date for delivery, give notice to Chee Fatt in detail of:
Any defect in the product that is apparent on reasonable examination. In this case Chee Fatt shall, at Chee Fatt's discretion, replace the products or refund the purchase price. In any event the Customer must refuse parcels delivered to it in a damaged condition;
Any shortfall in products delivered. In this case Chee Fatt shall, at its discretion, deliver the undelivered products or refund the price of the undelivered products;

If the Customer fails to give any such notice, the products shall be conclusively presumed to be, in all respects, in accordance with the order and free from apparent defects, and the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the products accordingly. Chee Fatt's record of the products dispatched (including the quantity) shall be conclusive evidence of the products received by the Customer, unless proved otherwise by the Customer.
The remedies set out above are the Customer's exclusive remedies for non-delivery or short delivery of products, or for apparent defects in the products or delivery of products not in accordance with the order. Chee Fatt shall not be liable for any losses, consequential or otherwise, or for costs (including legal costs), expenses, liabilities, injuries, loss of profits, business or economic loss, depletion of goodwill, damages, claims, demands, proceedings, judgments or otherwise arising from these circumstances.
PAYMENT If credit has not been granted to the Customer, payment terms will be based on Cash on Delivery or Advance Payment.
Credit terms (subject to satisfactory references and at Chee Fatt's absolute discretion) are available. If credit has been granted, the Customer shall pay the price of the product or service by the 30th day of the month following the month in which the products are dispatched. All payments must be made without any set-off, deduction or counterclaim. If any sum is not paid on the due date for payment then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy:
all sums then outstanding from the Customer will immediately become due and payable notwithstanding that such sums would not otherwise be due until a later date, and
Chee Fatt may charge the Customer interest from the due date until payment is made in full (both before and after any judgment) on the amount unpaid at a rate which is 8 per cent per annum, compounded monthly.
RISK AND OWNERSHIP Risk of loss of or damage to the products shall pass to the Customer on delivery. Ownership of all products supplied shall not pass to the Customer until full payment of the purchase price of the goods and of all other amounts owing to Chee Fatt has been made (in cash or cleared funds). If the Customer is late in paying any sum to Chee Fatt, then Chee Fatt shall be entitled to the immediate return of all products where the ownership has not passed to the Customer. The Customer authorizes Chee Fatt and its authorized agents to recover the products, and to enter any premises of the Customer for that purpose. Demand for or recovery of the products by Chee Fatt shall not of itself discharge either the Customer's liability to pay the whole of the price and take delivery of the products or Chee Fatt's right to sue for the whole of the price.
PRODUCT AND AVAILABILITY INFORMATION Chee Fatt reserves the right, without prior notice, to discontinue any product or to make design changes as part of its continuous program of product improvement, or to assist product availability, and such changes may take place during the life of any Chee Fatt catalogue.
