MR Computer Services and its affiliates (suppliers, service providers) provide their services to you subject to the conditions detailed in this agreement.

We will treat each order for goods as an offer by you to purchase the goods subject to these terms and conditions and which offer we will be entitled to accept or reject for any reason whatsoever, without any recourse.

Description of Goods

All the products we sell are technically based and it is not always practical to publish detailed specifications of them all. All images, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising on our site are provided for the sole purpose of giving an approximate description of the goods. Full detailed specifications are available on request or from the manufacturers or their websites if they are available.

Availability and Non-availability of Goods

All products and services are subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time. If we do not supply the goods for any reason we will not charge you for these and we will refund any money already paid for them. However, we will not be responsible for compensating you for any other losses you may suffer if we do not supply the goods.

Prices

Although we will use our best efforts to ensure that prices reflected on the website are accurate and current, because of the nature of the goods, prices change and are subject to change without notice. In the event that the price to be charged is more than the price reflected on the website, in respect of any goods, we will advise you thereof, by email, prior to delivery thereof, thus giving you the opportunity to accept or reject any higher price. Emails sent to you but not responded to within 7 (seven) days of us sending the email will be deemed to be an acceptance of the higher price.

Payment

Payment to us will be made by way of a cash deposit or bank transfer. No cheque deposits will be accepted.

Goods will only be released for delivery once payment has been cleared.

Delivery Charges

We will charge to deliver all goods purchased from us. Delivery charges will vary, depending on where the delivery is to be affected.

Corporate or account clients will receive free delivery if monthly purchases exceed R10 000.

Carriers cannot specify an exact hour of delivery. Any dates we specify for the delivery of goods are approximations only and we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges, or expenses caused by any delay in the delivery of the goods. Our failure to meet approximate delivery dates will not be grounds for you to cancel the sale. Some orders may be delivered in more than one drop. We will only deliver goods to the address on the order and goods will not be left without a signature. You are required to make all the necessary arrangements to take delivery of the goods whenever they are tendered for delivery. If you are not at home on the date that has been agreed and the delivery agent cannot contact you, we reserve the right to charge you for the re-delivery.

      4. You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it

    – Request the transfer of your personal information to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
    – Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal information.
