By participating in the Dell New Zealand Limited (“Dell”) Small Business Association Program the association (herein referred to as the “Customer”) agrees to comply with and be bound by these Program Participation Terms and Conditions (“Participation Terms”) and any additional terms, including as set forth in related agreements entered into between the parties (collectively referred to as the “Agreement”). These Participation Terms set out the terms upon which Dell and the Customer will offer the Customer’s members and/or staff (“Members”) a discount on selected Dellbranded consumer and commercial products purchased in New Zealand (“Products”) as part of the
Small Business Association Program (“Program”).
1. Terms of Sale
The Customer acknowledges and agrees that each qualifying Product purchase by Members participating in the Program will be subject to Dell’s standard Terms of Sale available at Terms and Conditions of Sale | Dell New Zealand (“Terms of Sale”) which Dell may update from time to time without prior notice.
The initial term of the Agreement will commence on the date these Participation Terms are accepted by the Customer, and will continue for one (1) year thereafter (“Initial Term”) unless otherwise terminated earlier. At the conclusion of the Initial Term, and on an annual basis thereafter, the Agreement will renew for additional periods of one (1) year at Dell’s discretion (each such period a “Renewal Term”, and together with the Initial Term, the “Term”). Members will be notified before the end of the Initial Term and/or each subsequent one (1) year term, if Dell does not wish to retain
the Agreement for a further Renewal Term.
3. Pricing and Discounts
Dell will at its sole discretion select the Dell-branded consumer and commercial products which will qualify for purchases by Members under the Program, and such qualifying products may be subject to change from time to time without notice. The discounts applicable under the Program shall depend on the Product, Product configuration and warranty purchased by a Member. Dell reserves the right to change published prices and discounts at any time for any reason. All Product purchases made directly with Dell with a discount under the Agreement are subject to applicable taxes, with all shipping and handling being the responsibility of the Member purchaser. Sales and other taxes associated with the transaction will be shown on Dell’s invoice.
4. Coupons & Orders
(a) Product discounts will be given in the form of a unique coupon code issued to Members via a link to the association upon onboarding. The Customer will be responsible for making the unique coupon code available to Members via a secure, user authenticated site. Each Member is limited to receive up to ten (10) coupons per year.
(b) Members can redeem coupons online at www.dell.com/en-nz/work/shop/ or by contacting a Dell sales representative via telephone on 0800 941 124.

If a Member places a Product order via telephone, the Member must identify themselves as a Member of the Customer to get the discount referenced and qualify for a Product purchase under the Program.
(c) A Product order is only considered accepted by Dell after the Member has received a written order confirmation. Dell reserves the right to cancel a Product order that is placed under wrongful conditions. If a Product order is subsequently cancelled or returned, the coupon will no longer be valid and the respective coupon code cannot be reapplied to another Product order.
(d) The coupon cannot be used against non-qualifying products or segments and is not available in conjunction with any other offers, discounts, promotions, coupons, privileges or programs, unless otherwise expressly stated.
