4      SUPPLYING THE SERVICE

(a)   We will supply the Service as described in the Service Schedule from the Start Date subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement.

(b)   We will supply the Service and any equipment within a reasonable time after acceptance of the Order and receipt of any initial payment which may be required. We may choose not to commence the process until after a cooling off period (if any) has expired. Before we can connect a service, we may need to order, configure or install equipment and make arrangements with our suppliers, which may impact connection and delivery dates. We aim to meet any service and equipment connection and delivery dates we have given you but those dates are estimates and not guarantees, and we are not liable for any failure to meet them except if we have agreed with you otherwise in writing, or if the law requires otherwise.

(c)   Given the technology, we do not guarantee that we can provision and connect every service and we may cancel a Service under clause 9.2 if we determine that we will be unable to provision or connect it within a reasonable time after accepting an Order.

(d)   We choose the method of provisioning and supplying the Service and we may use a combination of infrastructure and services of our own or provided by third parties. We may at any time vary the method, infrastructure and services which we use to supply the Service and we and our suppliers may make changes to the Service and to the infrastructure and services used to supply the Service at any time provided such variation or change does not materially impair supply of the Service.

(e)   We aim to provide a quality service but given the technology, we do not guarantee voice quality or data download speeds or other quality of service of a particular standard, or continuous access to the Service at all times, or that the Service will be fault free or uninterrupted or in the case of a data service, that any material sent or received will be sent or received correctly, except if we have agreed otherwise in writing or if the law requires otherwise. Quality of service can vary by location and is affected by many factors outside our control, including the customer equipment you use, distance from the exchange and the quality of the line connecting the exchange to your premises.

(f)    Except if we have agreed otherwise in writing, you are responsible for providing, installing, operating, upgrading and keeping in good working order all Customer Equipment. You are also responsible for obtaining all necessary consents and approvals (including landlord or building manager approval if required) in connection with the Service, and for providing adequate power supply and a suitable physical environment for equipment.

(g)   You must arrange to give us safe access to your premises promptly when we ask if we need access to provision, connect, supply, install, maintain, support, upgrade, or repair the Service, and on cancellation to remove the Service.

If you do not, you may incur additional charges and impact connection, service and repair times.

(d)   The equipment we supply you may be locked and programmed to work only with the infrastructure used to supply the Service. If you ask us, we may (but are not obliged to) agree to unlock the equipment and in that case, we will not be liable to you for any associated loss, damage, expense or liability.

(e)   If you change the electronic serial number or equipment identifier or perform a factory reset of equipment supplied by us, we will not be liable to you in connection with any resulting impact on our ability to supply the Service or provide remote support, and you must pay us our charges for any additional costs incurred as a result.

If you sell equipment in which we retain title, you sell as principal not as our agent, must hold the proceeds of sale in a separate account on trust for us and you have a duty to account to us for the proceeds. This retention of title constitutes the grant of a purchase money security interest by you in favour of us in respect of all present and after-acquired equipment which we supply to you.

(j)     If for any reason we provide replacement equipment to you in advance of receiving the original equipment from you, we will bill you our standard retail price for the equipment. The charge will be cancelled when we receive the original equipment from you. If we do not receive the original equipment, or we have no obligation to repair or replace the equipment under warranty or other legal obligation, then you must pay us the charges billed.

(i)     keep it in your control at all times and at the premises to which we delivered it or other premises we have agreed to in writing;

(ii)    not loan, rent, give or sell Our Equipment to any other person, or allow a security interest, charge, lien or encumbrance to be created over it, not attach it to any real property and not remove from it any nameplate identifying Our Equipment as our property;

(i)     if, in our reasonable opinion, you are in breach of any obligation under this clause 5.3; or

(ii)    if we are entitled to cancel the Service.

(h)   On the sooner of expiry or cancellation of any agreed loan or rental period, you must permit us to enter onto the premises where Our Equipment is located and to disconnect and remove it, or if we request, at your cost, and in accordance with our directions, immediately return Our Equipment to us in good condition (except fair wear and tear).

5.4 PPSA & Security interest

(a) This clause 5.4 applies to the extent that the Agreement creates or evidences a security interest in equipment (and in proceeds of sale of equipment) including equipment to which we retain title under clause 5.2(f), and Our Equipment, for the purposes of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) ('PPSA'). The terms 'accession,' 'perfected security interest,' ‘security agreement,’ ‘security interest’, and ‘verification statement’ have the meanings given them in the PPSA.

(b)   You must, if requested by us, promptly sign any document and do anything else we reasonably require to ensure that our security interest is a perfected security interest. You must not enter into any security agreement that permits any other person to have or to register any security interest in respect of the equipment or proceeds of sale of the equipment until we have perfected our security interest. 

(c)   You acknowledge and agree that the equipment is not used predominantly for personal, domestic or household purposes and accordingly the parties agree to contract out of sections 95, 118, 121(4), 130, 132(4), 135, 142 and 143 to the extent permitted by section 115(1) of the PPSA.

(d)   You and we agree not to disclose information of the kind that can be requested under section 275(1) of the PPSA. You must do everything on your part necessary to ensure that section 275(6)(a) of the PPSA continues to apply.
