By placing an order with us, you agree to the following terms and conditions of sale:
1.1 Software licences paid for are non-refundable.
1.2 Licences may be transferred to different devices/organisations at the sole discretion of Tengo Software.
1.3 Licence fees for the first contract period for new clients are due ahead of or on the go live date, i.e. before the software is to be used.
1.4 Once licence fees are invoiced, they are non-refundable, but are transferable between devices (a £50 transfer fee applies).
1.5 Unless otherwise agreed in a formal contract, software licencing is on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ basis, and either party can terminate the agreement at any time. Any invoices already raised will be due in full, if you wish to cancel, you must do so before the renewal date.
1.6 If you wish to pay monthly, this must be done via Direct Debit.
1.7 Licences may be cancelled and subsequently re-activated, however there is a re-activation fee of £50 plus times taken at our hourly rate in 15 minute increments per licence to do this as work is required to bring the software up-to-date on machines where it has been suspended.
1.8 Cancellation of your Direct Debit will constitute cancellation of contract, and services will be suspended. Re-activation fees as outlined in 1.7 will apply if you then wish to re-instate the contract.
1.9 If you use a piece of software that a licence hasn’t been paid for, for example, a spare till not being used for trading, you will be billed for the usage at the standard monthly licence rate for any month in which the usage occurred.
2.1 Warranty on kit sold by Tengo Software is held between you, the customer, and Tengo Software, manufacturers own standard warranties are not transferred to the customer.
2.2 Warranty is on a return to base basis, and determination of acceptance of warranty is at the sole discretion of Tengo Software, and if warranty is not accepted, all associated costs are chargeable to the customer.
2.3 If you or anyone other than Tengo Software install additional hardware and/or software, the warranty will be invalidated.
In the event of non-payment
3.1 If a payment is past due date, Tengo Software reserve the right to suspend services, including all software licences that the customer is using.
3.2 We agree we will attempt to contact you before restricting any services.
3.3 If a licence is disconnected due to non-payment, there is a re-activation fee of £50 plus times taken at our hourly rate in 15 minute increments per licence to do this as work is required to bring the software up-to-date on machines where it has been suspended.
4.1 If for any reason you wish to dispute any charges on an invoice, you must do so within 5 working days of receiving said invoice. It is not acceptable to wait for the invoice to be due for payment, and raise a dispute at that point.
