REFUSAL OF SERVICE
The Services are offered subject to our acceptance of your order or requests. We reserve the right to refuse service to any order, person or entity, without the obligation to assign reason for doing so. No order is deemed accepted by us until our fees have been approved and/or payment has been processed. We may at any time change or discontinue any aspect or feature of the Site or Service, subject to us fulfilling our previous responsibilities to you based on acceptance of your payment.
We will email you to confirm the placement of your order and with details concerning product delivery. In the event that there is an error in this email confirmation, it is your responsibility to inform us as soon as possible.
The fees which we will charge or the manner in which they will be arrived at, are set out in our quote and/or letter of engagement.
If our quote and/or letter of engagement specifies a fixed fee, we will charge this for the agreed scope of our services. Work which falls outside that scope will be charged on an hourly rate basis. We will advise you as soon as reasonably practicable if it becomes necessary for us to provide services outside the agreed scope and if requested, give you an estimate of the likely amount of the further costs.
Where our fees are calculated on an hourly basis, these rates are available on request. Differences in those rates reflect the experience and specialisation of our professional staff. Hourly rates are regularly reviewed and may be amended from time to time without reference to you. Time spent is recorded in 6 minute units, with time rounded up to the next unit of 6 minutes.
Disbursements and expenses:
Payments may have to be made to other people for work to be done, for example, proofing fees, search fees, support fees, agency fees, service fees and similar payments (called disbursements). We cannot pay these amounts on your behalf unless we first receive payment from you. We reserve the right to ask you either for the specific amount or for an approximate amount to cover these expenses. This will ensure that we are not out of pocket.
If we instruct any other person, we reserve the right to require payment of that person’s estimated fees beforehand and you authorise us to make payment to that person from the money paid into our bank account. By instructing that person, we are obligated to pay that person’s fees and accordingly we require protection for payment. We may require you to enter into a payment arrangement directly with that party.
We charge an additional office expense fee calculated at 5% of our fee to cover photocopying, phone calls, in-house printing, postage and other incidental office expenses, unless stated otherwise.
GST (if any):
GST is payable by you on our fees and charges.
We may send interim invoices to you, usually monthly and on the completion of the matter or termination of our engagement. We may also send you an invoice when we incur a significant expense.
Invoices are payable within 20 days of the date of the invoice, unless alternative arrangements have been made with us. We may require interest to be paid on any amount which is overdue. Interest will be calculated at the rate of 12% per month. All costs in relation to the collection of overdue accounts will be added to your account.
We may ask you to pre-pay amounts to us, or to provide security for our fees and expenses.
Although you may expect to be reimbursed by a third party for our fees and expenses, and although our invoices may at your request or with your approval be directed to a third party, you will nonetheless remain responsible for payment to us if the third party fails to pay us.
You may terminate our retainer at any time with 30 days notice.
We may terminate our retainer with 30 days notice.

Unless you instruct us in writing otherwise, you authorise and consent to us (without further reference to you) destroying (or deleting in the case of electronic records) all documents held by us seven (7) years after our engagement ends, or earlier if we have converted those documents to an electronic format (other than any documents that we hold in safe custody for you or are otherwise obliged by law to retain for longer).
