3.2 The Seller shall be entitled to adjust the price to be paid for the Goods by such amount as it thinks fit at any time before the despatch of the Goods in the event of any increase in the cost to the Seller in supplying the Goods, whether such increase shall result from higher costs of raw materials, labour, transport, or overhead expenses, or from any other cause whatsoever. 

3.3 The Seller shall be entitled to make an additional charge for postage and packing.

 

 4. Delivery & Risk

 

4.1 Every effort is made to meet delivery dates, but a fixed date shall not be a condition of the supply of the Goods.

4.3 The Seller shall not be liable for any delay in delivery or non-delivery of the Goods caused by any circumstances beyond the Seller's control, including without limitation any Act of God, explosion, fire, flood, war, hostilities, accident, delay in the delivery, or non-delivery by the Seller's suppliers, breakdowns or accidents to machinery, labour strike or dispute, order of decree of any court, or action of any Governmental authority and, on the occurrence of any of the above events, the Seller reserves the right to cancel or suspend the whole or part of any delivery.

5.3 The Seller may at any time require the Buyer to make payment in advance of delivery.

5.6 No payment shall be deemed to have been received until the Seller has received cleared funds.

 

 6. Retention of Title

 

6.1 The title to the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until all sums due or owing by the Buyer to the Seller on any account whatsoever, (including the contract for the supply of the Goods), have been paid in full.

6.2 So long as property in the Goods shall remain in the Seller, the Buyer shall hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as the Seller's bailee and the Goods shall be set aside from the Buyer's general stock of Goods and shall be marked with an indication that they remain the property of the Seller.

6.3 If the Buyer shall commit any breach of its obligations or shall make any default in payment of any sum due to the Seller under this or any other contract, or if any distress execution or other legal process shall be levied against the Buyer’s property or assets, or the Buyer shall make or offer to make any arrangement or composition with its creditors, or any petition or order be presented or made against the Buyer, or if any resolution or petition to wind up the Buyer shall be presented or passed or an Administrative Receiver be appointed of all or any of its assets, then in each case the Seller shall have the right with or without prior notice at any time to retake possession of the whole or any part of the goods (and for that purpose to go onto any premises occupied by the Buyer or any subsidiary parent or associated company of the Buyer) to the value of all sums due to the Seller, without prejudice to any other remedy of the Seller.

6.4 The Seller shall be entitled to maintain an action for the price of the Goods, notwithstanding that title in the Goods may not have passed to the Buyer.

6.5 The Buyer shall be entitled to sell in the ordinary course of its business any of the Goods which are the property of the Seller, on condition that the Buyer shall hold on trust for and on demand pay or transfer to the Seller (to the extent of any monies due to the Seller) the proceeds of such sale and all claims that the Buyer may have against its purchaser as a result of such sale.

6.6 Where the Seller is unable to determine whether any Goods are the goods in respect of which the Buyer's right to possession has terminated, the Buyer shall be deemed to have sold all goods of the kinds sold by the Seller to the Buyer in the order in which they were invoiced to the Buyer.

 

 7. Guarantee

 

7.1 If the Goods prove on inspection to be defective in material or workmanship, the Seller undertakes at its option to replace the same or refund to the Buyer the price of the Goods and in no circumstances will liability exceed the cost of replacement or the price paid by the Buyer for the Goods.

7.2 The liability of the Seller shall only apply to defects that appear under proper use and under conditions of operation not more onerous than those declared to the Seller and, in particular, shall not apply to defects which arise from the Buyer’s neglect, misuse or from normal wear and tear.

7.3 The Buyer shall give the Seller a reasonable opportunity to examine the defective Goods and the Buyer (if asked to do so by the Seller) shall return the Goods the Seller's place of business for the examination to take place there.

7.4 Any goods returned to the Seller and replaced by the Seller shall be the property of the Seller.

7.5 The Seller's liability under this clause shall be in lieu of any warranty or condition implied by law as to the quality or fitness for any particular purpose of the Goods and, save as provided in this clause, the Seller shall not be under any liability, whether in contract tort or otherwise, in respect of defects or injury.

7.6 Complaints by the Buyer in respect of the Goods alleged to be defective shall be made within 28 days of delivery and shall not entitle the Buyer to withhold or set off payments due the Seller.

 

 8. Termination

 

8.1 If the Buyer shall commit any breach of its obligations under this or any other contract, or shall make any default in payment of any sum due to the Seller under this or any other contract, or if any distress execution or other legal process shall be levied against the Buyer’s property or assets, or the Buyer shall make or offer to make any arrangement or composition with its creditors, or any petition or order be presented or made against the Buyer, or if any resolution or petition to wind up the Buyer shall be presented or passed, or if an Administrative Receiver be appointed of all or any of its assets, then in each case the Seller shall have the right forthwith to determine the contract and to cancel any outstanding delivery without prejudice to any other remedy.

8.2 The Buyer shall not be entitled to cancel this contract without the consent of the Seller which, if given, shall be deemed to be on the express condition that the Buyer shall indemnify the Seller against all loss, damage, claims or actions arising out of such cancellation.
