2. Disclaimers and Warranties
Except otherwise stated, all information on this web site is provided “as is” without warranty or conditions of any kind, either express or implied. This is a dynamic Web site, including information and inputs from colleagues as well as the site authors. In preparing this site, effort has been made to offer information as accurately as possible. However, inadvertent errors can occur, and applicable laws, rules and regulations often change.
Darrel Technologies Ltd. therefore assume no responsibility for inaccuracies, errors or omissions in the information or software or other documents which are referenced by or linked to this web site.
3. Payment of Bills
By using our services you agree to supply appropriate payment for the services received from Darrel Technologies, in advance of the time period during which such services are provided. You agree that until and unless you notify Darrel Technologies of your desire to cancel any or all services received, those services will be billed on a recurring basis. This includes when accounts are suspended. When an account’s invoices are paid outside of the 10 day grace period, invoices will not be automatically generated. However, after the customer notifies Darrel Technologies of his or intent to resume service, invoices will be manually generated and payment expected for the time the account was suspended.
We will only setup your account after we have received FULL payment due for your order and we and/or our payment partner(s) have screened the order(s) in case of fraud. ** It is your responsibility as a D-Tech customer to prove beyond all reasonable doubt the legitimacy of any orders made through our website. And we reserve the right to not process any orders that have been deemed to be fraudulent.
Bank Deposit Verification / Payment Notification
Darrel Technologies accepts payment via Bank Deposit in Ghana. Clients looking to utilize this payment option are required to complete a Verification form on this website after making payments in order to notify Darrel Technologies of any such payments.
Any payments for which we have NOT been duly notified using the bank verification form will be considered unpaid until such a time as when we have been notified of the said payment via the bank verification form. As such, any Invoices, Debit Notes or other Transaction charges linked to such payments will remain unpaid until such a time as we have been duly notified via the bank verification form.
Over Payment and Overages
When you place an order on our site, you receive an Invoice containing the Total Pending amount due for your order. This amount will include VAT + NHIL charges. You are expected to pay the exact amount stated for your order, including these charges.
If you have “overpaid” for an Invoice via Bank Deposit, you are required to notify us immediately of any such overages via the Bank Deposit form for that invoice.
Note: Darrel Technologies will NOT be held liable for any overages paid via Bank Deposit, unless specifically instructed as to how to handle such overages via the Bank Verification form. We may issue refunds on such overages at our sole discretion, and we reserve the right to refuse refunds of any such overages. In such a case that over payments are reported, we can only credit such overages to the customer’s D-Tech account.
Please note also that only amounts that are less than or equal to 20% of the total amount billed will be considered a payment overage. As such, we will NOT credit any over payments made that are more than 20% of the actual amount billed. You can always add funds to your advance account with us, which can be applied to future invoices, by clicking here.
