Terms & Conditions

These Terms and Conditions apply to the use of this web site, including the purchase of any goods, products or services (together, "Products and/or Services") supplied to you by Cook Executive. By using this web site for these or any other purposes, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions, you must refrain from using this web site.

In these Terms and Conditions, "Cook Executive" is Cook Executive Recruitment Limited and "the Client" is any legal person using Cook Executive's website or purchasing Products and/or Services from NavS tation.


1)         The Client is required to:

(a)  Comply with all applicable laws, regulations, standards and codes, including in particular (but not limited to) the following New Zealand Legal Acts: Privacy Act 1993, the Fair Trading Act 1986, the Copyright Act 1994, the Defamation Act 1992 and the Crimes Act 1961.

(b)  Ensure that all information provided to us is current and correct.

(c)  Maintain the confidentiality of the Client’s user name, login, password, and any other account information and/or identifier provided to the Client in relation to the Products and/or Services. The Client accepts complete responsibility for all use of his/her/its account and of the Client’s identifier(s), and Cook Executive is entitled to rely entirely upon use of any password or other identifier as evidence of the Client’s identity and authority.


2)         These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between Cook Executive and the Client and it is expressly agreed that there are no other understandings, representations of warranties of any kind (either express or implied) forming part of the contract between Cook Executive and the Client. In particular:

(a)  No condition advised by the Client which is inconsistent with, qualifies, or is contrary to these Terms and Conditions shall have any effect unless that condition is expressly accepted in writing by Cook Executive.

(b)  No variation or waiver of these Terms and Conditions shall have any effect unless accepted in writing by Cook Executive.

3)         By using the Products and/or Services the Client certifies that he or she is at least 18 years of age.


4)         The Client agrees to pay for the Products and/or Services provided to the Client or under his/her/its account, regardless of whether it is the Client or someone else who uses them.

5)         Payment is due upon receipt of invoice. All payments must be in New Zealand dollars and withdrawable at a New Zealand bank. Accounts are in default if payment is not received within 30 days after date of invoice. If a Client's cheque is returned by the bank as unredeemable, the Client will be deemed to be in default, and will be liable for a "returned cheque" charge of $25.00.

6)         Accounts unpaid 30 days after date of invoice may have their Products and/or Service revoked and/or interrupted. Such revocation and/or interruption does not relieve the Client from the obligation to pay the Products and/or Service charge. Only a written request to terminate the Products and/or Services relieves the Client of obligation to pay future subscribed charges from the date of such request.

7)         Accounts in default are subject to a late payment charge of $25 and an interest charge of 1.5% per month on the outstanding balance. The Client agrees to pay Cook Executive its reasonable expenses, including solicitor and collection agency fees, incurred in enforcing its rights under these Terms and Conditions.

8)         No deduction or set-off against any amount due is permitted.

9)         Cook Executive reserves the right to change Products and/or Services rates and prices by notifying the Client 15 days in advance of the effective date of the change - or without notice for web displayed products.


10)       Where the Client is in default or Cook Executive has reasonable grounds to believe the Client is in default under and provision of these Terms and Conditions, Cook Executive may suspend or terminate the provision of Products and/or Services to the Client.  If Cook Executive suspends the provision of Products and/or Services pursuant to this clause, the Client shall be notified as to the reason for the suspension.

11)       The Services provided by Cook Executive may be cancelled at any time by either party without penalty provided one months notice is given in writing to the other party.
