    7. All postage and packaging fees will be charged to the Customer in addition to the fees for the relevant Products and Services at Epos Now’s then current rates.

  6. Customer Responsibilities

    1. The Customer will be responsible for installing the Hardware (unless otherwise agreed in writing with Epos Now) and will keep the Hardware in the environmental conditions recommended by Epos Now and ensure that the external surfaces, cables and fittings of the Hardware are kept in good, clean condition.

    2. The Customer will ensure that the Hardware is only used by properly trained staff in accordance with Epos Now’s instructions from time to time. The Customer will ensure that only personnel authorised by Epos Now adjust, modify, configure, maintain, repair, replace or remove any part of the Hardware.

    3. The Customer will maintain adequate records of the use, maintenance and malfunction of the Hardware and will provide Epos Now with such information and assistance concerning the Hardware, its application, use, location and environment as Epos Now may reasonably require to enable it to carry out the Support Plan.

    4. The Customer will immediately notify Epos Now if there is any failure of the Hardware or the System and will allow Epos Now full and free access to the Hardware and all documentation, software, materials and services necessary for the provision of the Support Plan. The Customer will ensure that relevant trained and experienced staff are available when required by Epos Now to provide Epos Now with information required to diagnose and/or repair the issue.

    5. It is the Customer’s sole responsibility to regularly operate and verify a proper back-up routine, maintaining all back-up copies in a secure environment.

    6. The Customer undertakes to put and keep in place adequate security measures and up-to-date firewalls to protect the Hardware, Software and Systems from any viruses, harmful code or unauthorised access. Epos Now shall not be responsible for any unauthorised access to the System by means of hacking, any unauthorised access of the Hardware with intent to commit or facilitate the commission of an offence or any unauthorised modification of the Hardware by a third party.

    7. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that their login password to the Epos Now Systems remains secure and confidential. The Customer should update their password regularly and ‘remember me’ type functions should not be used on publicly available or shared computers.

  7. Internet / Network Requirements

    1. Epos Now’s Products require a reliable and robust connection to the internet / local network to take advantage of all of the online features and benefits. It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that it has an appropriate internet / local network connection in place prior to installation of the Software and to also ensure that the internet connection is maintained correctly and includes an up-to-date firewall. The recommended internet speeds are a minimum 7Mbps download speed and 0.6Mbps upload speed to support up to four till devices. Larger locations / installations will need higher internet speeds as appropriate to the size of installation and business. This speed requirement does not include any additional internet usage required over and above the Epos Now System such as staff or guest networks or other business requirements. Internet speeds and consistencies can be checked by using internet speed test websites or by contacting the applicable internet service provider.

    2. The Customer must provide a separate physical network or a separate V-LAN for Epos Now systems. This must not be shared with other devices, particularly those that cause high volume, high congestion or unpredictable network loads including (but not limited to) guest networks and music or video streaming devices.

    3. The Customer is solely responsible for any connection charges, line rental charges and call charges in relation to any Products.

    4. Whilst Epos Now representatives may provide advice and an indication of the suitability of the Customer’s internet / local network connection, it remains the Customer’s sole responsibility to ensure it has a suitable internet / local network connection both before and after an order is placed. Epos Now is not responsible for any slow responses to its Systems, including where this is caused by the Customer’s poor internet / local network connection.

    5. Provision of Local Area Network (LAN) infrastructure (e.g. cabling, network switches, WAN router) is the responsibility of the Customer and should be appropriate to the size of business and criticality of the operation.

    6. Where the System is to be used over wifi (e.g. tablets/mobile devices):

      1. the Customer is responsible for the setup, configuration and management of both the wifi infrastructure and the Customer devices. This includes ensuring wifi coverage in required areas and ensuring network dropouts due to wifi roaming are minimised; and

      2. the Customer must consider that wifi is not as robust as a wired network and network dropouts can occur due to wifi coverage, access point roaming, tablet sleep modes as well as other environmental factors. This is not unique to Epos Now Systems and should be considered when selecting a wifi solution.

    7. Epos Now Systems are designed to work offline, but where no network connection (LAN or WAN) is available or the network connection is unreliable, some functionality is reduced.

    8. Where Customer devices are used offline for long periods, the Customer must ensure that such devices are regularly (at least every 7 days) connected to the internet to ensure data is synchronised with its servers. All till devices must regularly (at least every 7 days) perform ‘End of Day/Close Till’ operations to ensure that the local data store can be archived to the servers.

  8. Monthly Fee: Hardware without up-front costs

    1. Epos Now offers a monthly fee subscription option for the provision of the Products, whereby it will supply Hardware and/or Software solutions without any upfront cost. This includes CCTV integration. For this option, fees are charged on a monthly basis with a minimum contract term of 12 months (“Subscription Contract”).

    2. If the Customer cancels the Subscription Contract within the 12 month term, it must return any Hardware it has received and pay the remaining balance of the 12 month term. This is calculated by multiplying the number of months outstanding by the applicable monthly fee.

    3. After 12 months, the Subscription Contract will automatically become a rolling 12 month contract, with the monthly fee remaining the same (unless notified to the Customer by Epos Now from time to time).

    4. Either party can terminate the Subscription Contract at any time by providing the other party with at least 30 days’ prior written notice. For the avoidance of doubt, title to the Products shall not pass to the Customer at any point under the Subscription Contract option.

  9. Product Rental

    1. Epos Now may offer the ability to rent the Products from Epos Now and where this is possible, it will notify the Customer of the rental period, and the applicable fees for that period.

    2. On acceptance of an order, a deposit of £400 (excluding VAT) per point of sale terminal will be taken in addition to the first month’s rental fee. If the rental period is greater than one month, the subsequent payments will be due in one month intervals, starting from the first date of the rental period.

    3. Epos Now will remain the owner of the Products and will retain title in them at all times.

    4. It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that the Hardware is maintained and returned in the same condition as it was dispatched.

    5. The Customer must arrange the safe return of Hardware within five Working Days of the end of the rental period.

    6. Epos Now may offer to collect the Hardware, however, it is the Customer’s responsibility to document the cosmetic condition before the Hardware is collected by Epos Now (or Epos Now’s third-party courier).

    7. For each day after the five Working Days from the end of the rental period that Epos Now has not received the Hardware, Epos Now will charge an additional £25 (ex vat) per item.

    8. Upon return of the Hardware, Epos Now will inspect the Hardware and compile a report. Based on the report, a full refund of the deposit may be made, less any adjustments. If the Customer is eligible for a return of the deposit, this payment will be made within 14 Working Days of receiving the returned Hardware.

    9. If the Hardware is returned in a damaged condition where the cost of repair or replacement exceeds the value of the deposit, Epos Now retains the right to invoice the Customer for an additional sum to cover the damage exceeding the value of the deposit. The Customer must pay this sum within 14 days of the date of the applicable invoice.

    10. If the Hardware is not returned after 28 days after the rental period, Epos Now will withhold the entirety of the deposit and invoice the Customer for the remaining value of the Products and any charges outstanding. This must be paid within 14 days of the date of the applicable invoice.

    11. The Hardware rental does not include any ongoing services or consumables (e.g. support, applications or peripheral hardware such as USB scanners), but these are available on request (subject to agreed fees).

  10. Annual Software Licence Fee

    1. Unless the Customer has opted to purchase a Support Plan, the Customer will be charged for a Software licence annually.

    2. The annual Software licence provides the Customer with:

      1. use of the Software for a minimum 12 calendar months;

      2. maintenance and operating costs of the Epos Now servers; and

      3. selective System updates, improving the running and functionality of the Software.

    3. The first year of the Software licence is included within the price of purchasing the Software.

    4. The annual Software licence fee is currently £175 (ex vat) for each point of sale terminal (as updated from time to time).

    5. Payment of the Software licence is due on the anniversary of the original account activation for each point of sale terminal.

    6. The Software licence fee is non-negotiable and is non-refundable in the event that this Agreement is terminated.

    7. The Software licence shall apply for a minimum period of 12 months (“Initial Term”) and will automatically renew for further 12 month periods (each a “Renewal Period”) unless and until a party provides the other party with written notice to cancel the Software licence at least 30 days before the start of the next Renewal Period, which shall take effect no earlier than the end of the Initial Term or the end of the then current Renewal Period. Upon the start of each Renewal Period, the Customer will be charged for the Software licence fees (at the then current rates) via the original billing method.

    8. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that upon the annual Software licence renewal date, the Customer will be required to upgrade to the then latest version of the Epos Now Software platform.

  11. Support Plan

    1. Epos Now offers two optional Support Plans:

      1. Standard Support, which shall include:

        1. the annual Software licence fee;

        2. access to the Epos Now support team during Working Hours;

      2. Premium Support, which shall include the contents of the Standard Support Plan and:

        1. 24 hour telephone support; and

        2. priority email support.

    2. The Customer can upgrade to a Support Plan at any time either through the ‘Back Office’ of the System using its log-in credentials, or by contacting Epos Now. If the Customer is already part-way into a Standard Support Plan contract, this existing contract will be cancelled and replaced by the Premium Support contract.

    3. Where the Customer has paid for a Standard Support Plan contract and wishes to upgrade to a Premium Support Plan, the remaining term of the Standard Support Plan will be discounted from the Premium Support plan’s payment on a pro rata basis. The Premium Support Plan contract shall continue for at least one year from the date of taking out the Premium Support Plan.

    4. All Support Plans are contracts for 12 month periods and are governed by the terms of this Agreement.

    5. The Customer can choose to either pay the Support Plan annually in advance or on a monthly basis. Where the Customer chooses to pay for the Support Plan on a monthly basis, it must provide recurring payment details either through direct debit or a credit or debit card. Payments are due each month, on the same day of the month that the Support Plan was purchased.

    6. Epos Now will attempt to take the payment each month through its payment providers. Where a payment fails, Epos Now will attempt to take the payment again. If a payment continues to fail, Epos Now retains the right to restrict access to the Epos Now Software for all of the Customer’s licenses, locations and devices until all outstanding payments are made in full.

    7. If the Customer wishes to cancel its Support Plan part-way through the annual contract, it will be liable to pay a charge calculated by multiplying the number of months remaining on the contract by the monthly payment.

    8. Epos Now reserves the right to increase the Support Plan fees at any time upon providing the Customer with at least 30 days’ notice in advance. Should the Customer not agree to the Support Plan fees, the Customer may cancel the Support Plan and receive a pro rata refund for any unused proportion of the Support Plan fees after the effective date of termination that have been paid in advance.

    9. If the Customer has a Support Plan but uses third party hardware, Epos Now will use reasonable endeavours to resolve any software compatibility issues, but any hardware maintenance issues will be the Customer’s sole responsibility.

  12. Support Plan Renewal & Cancellation

    1. After one year (and each subsequent year), the Customer’s Support Plan will automatically renew for another year unless the Customer advises Epos Now before the renewal date that it does not wish it to renew.

    2. The Customer has a 30 day cooling-off period after the automatic renewal date in which to notify Epos Now that it does not wish to continue the Support Plan, Epos Now will cancel the Support Plan contract with no penalty to the Customer.

    3. To continue to use the Epos Now Software after cancellation, the Customer must either pay the annual Support Plan licence fee or sign up to another Support Plan.

    4. Epos Now may also choose to end the Support Plan contract at any time if Epos Now discontinues the Support Plan.

  13. Delivery of Hardware

    1. Whilst Epos Now takes reasonable care to ensure the Hardware packaging prevents any damage to the Hardware in transit, it is the Customer’s responsibility to check the Hardware before it accepts the Hardware at the time of delivery.

    2. It is the Customer’s responsibility to document, and notify Epos Now of, any defects in the cosmetic condition of the Hardware within 24 hours of receiving the Hardware.

    3. Provided clause 13.2 has been complied with, in the rare occasion that the Hardware is faulty or damaged on arrival, Epos Now will provide the Customer with replacement Hardware.

    4. Whilst Epos Now shall use reasonable endeavours to deliver the Hardware by the date specified in the Customer's order, Epos Now shall not be liable for the delay in delivery from any cause whatsoever and howsoever arising and time shall not be of the essence for delivery.

    5. All deliveries must be signed for by the Customer or its authorised representatives. Epos Now’s third party courier may notify the Customer the timeframe when the Customer should expect the delivery by email and/or text message. It is the responsibility of the Customer to provide Epos Now with the correct address, email and mobile number to benefit from this Service.

    6. It is the responsibility of the Customer to have an appropriate and authorised person available to sign for the delivery of the Hardware. Epos Now is not responsible for any deliveries that cannot be made due to an authorised person not being available to receive the Hardware, or its courier not having access to the delivery location.

  14. Epos Now Hardware Warranty

    1. Subject to clause 14.5, in relation to any new Hardware purchased directly from Epos Now, and that is manufactured by Epos Now, Epos Now warrants that such Hardware will be of good, satisfactory quality and free of any material defects for a period of 12 months from the date of the delivery of the Hardware to the Customer.

    2. Subject to clause 14.5, in relation to any refurbished Hardware purchased directly from Epos Now, Epos Now warrants that such Hardware will be of good, satisfactory quality and free of any material defects for a period of 90 days from the date of delivery of the Products, unless it is sold as ‘like new’ where it will have a warranty period of 12 months from the date of the delivery of the Products.

    3. Each of the 12 month long warranties under clauses 14.1 and 14.2 are “Limited Warranties”.

    4. The Customer may choose to purchase an “Extended Warranty” within the Limited Warranty period. This Extended Warranty confers the same rights as the Limited Warranty, but shall apply for a period of three years from the date of the original delivery of the Products to the Customer.

    5. Notwithstanding the above clauses, the warranties stated in this clause 14 shall not apply to:

      1. any third-party hardware. Third-party hardware is any hardware that is not manufactured by Epos Now, or any Hardware which is not branded with the Epos Now name and/or logo;

      2. any Hardware that has been tampered with, repaired and/or modified by non-authorised personnel;

      3. any Hardware where the warranty seals have been broken or altered;

      4. any damage (accidental or other) to the Hardware that is cosmetic (meaning that damage that does not impact the operation and functioning of the Hardware), including rust, change in colour, texture or finish, wear and tear and gradual deterioration;

      5. any damage to the Hardware caused by war, terrorism, fire, accident, natural disasters, intentional or accidental misuse, abuse, neglect or improper maintenance, use under abnormal conditions, accidental drops, spills, or power surges;

      6. any damage to the Hardware caused by improper installation, connection or malfunction of a peripheral device such as a printer, optical drive, network card, or USB device;

      7. any damage to the Hardware through the Customer’s neglect to protect the Hardware, Software or System from viruses;

      8. any damage to the Hardware caused by an external electrical fault or any accident;

      9. fraud, theft unexplained disappearance or wilful acts;

      10. liquid or fluid damage or contamination of any kind; or

      11. any damage caused by user error such as malware, uninstallation, other programs, mistreatment or any software problems that are caused by use of anything other than Epos Now Software.

    6. If the Customer believes that the Hardware contains a fault that is covered by the warranties provided herein, the Customer must report the issue to Epos Now in writing within the applicable warranty period and, at the Customer’s expense, return the item to Epos Now for inspection. Within 28 days of receiving the Hardware in question, Epos Now will examine the item and if covered by the warranty, at Epos Now’s discretion, Epos Now will either replace the Hardware with one of similar performance and capabilities or repair the Hardware. If a device fails outside of the first 30 days of original purchase, Epos Now retains the right to replace or repair the Hardware with refurbished or remanufactured parts. If Epos Now determines that the Hardware is outside of the warranty rights, Epos Now will, at the Customer’s request, prepare a quote for repair or replacement of the item in question. The Customer can then choose to pay for the repair or replacement or to have its original Hardware returned to it (at the Customer’s expense).

    7. Where Epos Now replaces or repairs Hardware under warranty, or as a chargeable out of warranty service, the repaired or replacement Hardware inherits the remaining warranty period from the original Hardware. If the original Hardware has less than 30 calendar days of warranty remaining, the replacement or repaired Hardware will receive a warranty of 30 calendar days.

    8. If any new Hardware fails within the first 30 days of its original purchase, and is covered by a warranty, Epos Now will replace the device with new Hardware, at Epos Now’s expense.

  15. Swap It service

    1. If the Customer has purchased a Support Plan, and where the Hardware is covered by a Limited Warranty or Extended Warranty, the Customer is entitled to have its Return to Base warranty upgraded to the Swap It service.

    2. If the Customer notifies Epos Now prior to 3.00pm (GMT) on a Working Day of a fault with the Hardware, Epos Now will arrange for a courier to deliver replacement Hardware (of a similar specification to the original) to be delivered the following Working Day.

    3. When the courier delivers the replacement Hardware, they will collect the failed Hardware. The courier will not leave the replacement Hardware without taking away the failed Hardware. The courier will allow a maximum of 15 minutes for the replacement to occur. It is not possible to arrange a specific time of day for the replacement to occur.

    4. If Epos Now is notified of the need for a Swap It after 3.00pm (GMT) or on a non-Working Day, the replacement Hardware will be delivered within two Working Days’ time.

    5. The Swap It service is only available for addresses in the UK. For all addresses outside of the UK the Customer must use the Return to Base option.

    6. The Swap It service is not available on Hardware for which there is no Epos Now warranty, for example third-party products not manufactured by Epos Now.

    7. If Hardware fails outside of the first 30 days of original purchase, Epos Now retains the right to replace or repair the Product with refurbished or remanufactured parts.

    8. The Customer, wherever possible, must also provide the serial number of the Hardware to be swapped when requested by an Epos Now support agent. Failure to do so may result in a refusal of the Swap It case.

    9. When Hardware is returned to Epos Now via a Swap It, Epos Now will inspect the device to ensure that it should be replaced under warranty. Epos Now only offers the Swap It service to Hardware that is covered by an Epos Now warranty. Whilst Epos Now tries to validate the warranty status before agreeing to perform a Swap It, there are occasions where Epos Now perform a Swap It on Hardware that are not covered by warranty. If it is found to be out of warranty Epos Now reserves the right to raise an invoice, due immediately, for the Customer to pay the replacement cost.

    10. Hardware can be out of warranty for many reasons, including (but not limited to):

      1. the warranty period has expired;

      2. any of the circumstances of clause 14.5 apply; or

      3. improper or insufficient cleaning and maintenance.

    11. If the Hardware returned is found to be in working condition but in a poor and unreasonable state of cleanliness, the Customer will be billed for cleaning the Hardware at a fixed rate per item.

  16. Refunds and return of the Products

    1. No return or refund will be issued by Epos Now unless the complaints procedure outlined in clause 17 is followed.

    2. The Software licence fee is strictly non-refundable.

    3. Any returned Products should be packed in the original packaging, with all boxes, leads, discs, adaptors and manuals. Epos Now reserves the right to charge for any damages caused in transit due to poor packaging.

    4. Epos Now Systems and Software sales are excluded from the standard returns policy due to the considerable costs in configuration, personalisation, training and dispatch. These items are strictly non-refundable.
