4.1 The price for the Goods and the Services shall be the Seller’s quoted price or, where no price has been quoted (or a quoted price is no longer
valid), the price listed in the Seller’s published pricelist current at the date of acceptance of the order. All prices quoted are valid for 30 days
only or until earlier acceptance by the Buyer, after which time they may be altered by the Seller without giving notice to the Buyer.
4.2 The Seller reserves the right, by giving notice to the Buyer at any time before delivery, to increase the price for the Goods and the Services
to reflect any increase in the cost to the Seller which is due to any factor beyond the control of the Seller (such as, without limitation, any
foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs

5.1 Subject to any special terms agreed in Writing between the Buyer and the Seller, the Seller shall be entitled to invoice the Buyer for the price
for the Goods and the Services on or at any time after delivery of the Goods, unless the Goods are to be collected by the Buyer or the Buyer
wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods, in which event the Seller shall be entitled to invoice the Buyer for the price at any time after the
Seller has notified the Buyer that the Goods are ready for collection or (as the case may be) the Seller has tendered delivery of the Goods.
5.2 Unless specifically agreed otherwise and confirmed in writing, settlement terms for all approved credit accounts are strictly net and payable
30 days after the end of the month of supply and the Seller shall be entitled to recover the price, notwithstanding that delivery may not have
taken place. The time of payment of the price shall be of the essence of the Contract. Receipts for payment will be issued only upon request.
First orders normally require 50% pro forma invoice dependant upon references.
5.3 If the Buyer fails to make any payment on the due date then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Seller, the Seller
shall be entitled to:
5.3.1 cancel the Contract or suspend any further deliveries to the Buyer;
5.3.2 appropriate any payment made by the Buyer to such of the Goods (or the Goods supplied under any other contract between the Buyer
and the Seller) and the Services as the Seller may think fit (notwithstanding any purported appropriation by the Buyer); and
5.3.3 charge the Buyer interest (both before and after any judgment) on the amount unpaid, at the rate of 2 per cent per annum above

be delivered by the Seller in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Buyer.
6.3 Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Seller to deliver any
one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Conditions or any claim by the Buyer in respect of any one or more instalments shall
not entitle the Buyer to treat the Contract as a whole repudiated.
6.4 If the Seller fails to deliver the Goods (or any instalment) for any reason other than any cause beyond the Seller’s reasonable control of the
Buyer’s fault, and the Seller is accordingly liable to the Buyer, the Seller’s liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to the Buyer
(in the cheapest available market) of similar goods to replace those not delivered over the price of the Goods.
6.5 If the Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Seller adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise
than reason of any cause beyond the Buyer’s reasonable control or by reason of the Seller’s fault) then, without prejudice to any other right
or remedy available to the Seller, the Seller may:
6.5.1 store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Buyer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or
6.5.2 sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to the
Buyer for the excess over the price under the Contract or charge the Buyer for any shortfall below the price under the Contract.
7.0 RISK AND PROPERTY
7.1 Any Goods which are not the property of the Seller but which are supplied by or on behalf of the Buyer to the Seller in connection with the
performance of the Services are at the entire risk of the Buyer at all times and the Buyer shall arrange adequate insurance cover for such
Goods at the Buyer’s expense whilst they are in the Seller’s possession or under the Seller’s control (even if the Seller makes a charge for the
storage of such Goods).
7.2 Where Condition 7.1 does not apply risk of damage to or loss of the Goods shall pass to the Buyer:
7.2.1 in the case of Goods to be delivered at the Seller’s premises, at the time when the Seller notifies the Buyer that the Goods are available
for collection; or
7.2.2 in the case of Goods to be delivered otherwise than at the Seller’s premises, at the time of delivery or, if the Buyer wrongfully fails to
take delivery of the Goods, the time when the Seller has tendered delivery of the Goods.
7.3 Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, or any other provision of these Conditions, the property in Goods owned by the
Seller shall not pass to the Buyer until the Seller has received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the price of the Goods and the
Services and all other goods agreed to be sold and services agreed to be supplied by the Seller to the Buyer for which payment is then due.
7.4 Until such time as the property in Goods owned by the Seller passes to the Buyer, the Buyer shall hold the Goods as the Seller’s fiduciary agent
and bailee, and shall keep the Goods separate from those of the Buyer and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and
identified as the Seller’s property, but the Buyer shall be entitled to resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business.
7.5 Until such time as the property in Goods owned by the Seller passes to the Buyer (and provided the Goods are still in existence and have not
been resold), the Seller shall be entitled at any time to require the Buyer to deliver up the Goods to the Seller and, if the Buyer fails to do so
forthwith, to enter upon any premises of the Buyer or any third party where the Goods are stored and repossess the Goods.
7.6 The Buyer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods which remain the
property of the Seller, but if the Buyer does so all moneys owing by the Buyer to the Seller shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy
of the Seller) forthwith become due and payable.

no liability for such defect or failure, and the Buyer shall be bound to pay the price as if the Goods had been delivered in accordance with
