Fronde licencing terms and conditions

Fronde Licencing Terms and Conditions

Capitalised terms used on this “Fronde Licencing Terms and Conditions” web page have the same meaning (where a definition is included) as set out in the the relevant reseller agreement in place between Fronde and the owner of the licence, unless a contrary definition has been included below. 

To the extent of any inconsistency between these “Fronde Licencing Terms and Conditions” and the terms and conditions of a reseller agreement between Fronde and the owner of the licence, the terms and conditions set out in the reseller agreement shall take precedence. 

When placing a licence order through the Website (“Website” means www.fronde.com, www.fronde.co.nz and/or www.fronde.com.au) you may be:

  • purchasing additional licences under an existing written and signed (by you) quote in place between you and Fronde (“Additional Licences Online Order”);
  • renewing licences under an existing written and signed (by you) multi-year quote in place between you and Fronde for a particular Product or Products (“Renewal Online Order”); or
  • purchasing licences (whether new or additional) via Fronde (as a reseller for that product) as a new Customer that does not have an existing written and signed (by you) quote in place for those Products (“New Web Based Order”).

If you are making an Additional Licences Online Order or Renewal Online Order via the Website then your order of the relevant licences will be governed by the terms and conditions set out in the original written and signed (by you) quote or quotes in place between you and Fronde (not the “Web Based Order Terms and Conditions” set out below): 

If you are making a Web Based Order the terms and conditions set out below will govern your order of the relevant Products via the Website.

New Web Based Order Terms and Conditions:

The Products you have purchased may have been priced in US dollars or Australian dollars and converted to New Zealand dollars. If this is the case, the exchange rate used is the spot rate shown on the website of the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited or such other financial institution selected by Fronde for the nearest Business Day. Fronde reserves the right to review the price if the exchange rate varies by more than one percent.

The pricing for any Products ordered via the Website excludes any and all taxes (including GST, value added tax and income tax and any duties and levies imposed by any competent authority in any jurisdiction) which will be payable by the Customer on taxable supplies. Pricing will generally be based on the published list price by the owner of the Product (and any Fronde margin, where applicable). 

Fronde will invoice the Customer monthly in arrears for the Products ordered via the Website. Payment of Fronde’s complete and correct invoice is due by the 20th of the month following the date of invoice ("Due Date"). If the Customer fails to pay all amounts due for Products by the Due Date, Fronde may (at its sole discretion) suspend the Client's access to the Products ordered until full payment is received. Fronde may charge interest on any overdue amount. Interest will be calculated daily from the due date to the date of payment of the invoice (both inclusive) at an annual percentage rate equal to the corporate overdraft rate (monthly charging cycle) applied by Fronde’s primary trading bank as at the due date plus 3% per annum. The Customer must pay all fees, charges, interest, commission and any other costs incurred by Fronde in the settlement, recovery and/or attempted recovery of any amount owing to Fronde by the Customer.

Fronde will not place an order for the Product until the Customer has validly placed an order through the Website (including providing all requisite information in the relevant form). The terms and conditions set out herein take precedence over any terms and conditions set out in your purchase order document (if one has been provided to Fronde).
