Insight obtains certain data directly from the publisher or supplier of WAH Products and is not responsible for pricing, typographical or other errors in any such data. In addition, availability of third party WAH Product is subject to change without notice.

You agree and are responsible for the payment of the total purchase price for WAH Products, plus taxes (including any GST that is payable), shipping and delivery charges, and any additional bank transaction fees that your order may incur.

Invoices are due and payable within the time frame and in the currency specified on the invoice, measured from the date of invoice. Where invoices are paid in a currency other than that specified on the invoice, you agree to remit payment to Insight for any losses incurred upon conversion of any payments received which result in a short-payment of such invoices. In addition, if payments are not received as described above, Insight reserves the right to suspend further deliveries until payment is received.

You authorize Insight to execute and file a financing statement or other documents, or take any other action necessary or desirable, to register such security interest on the Personal Property Securities Register or otherwise to perfect Insight's security interest.
