TITLE OF GOODS 8
The Company and the Buyer expressly agree that until the Company has been paid in full for the goods comprised in any contract between them
The goods comprised in the relevant contract shall remain the property of the Company. The insurable risk in the goods to which any contract incorporating these conditions relates shall pass to the Buyers as soon as goods are delivered
The Company may recover goods at any time from the Buyer, if the amount outstanding from the Buyer to the Company in respect of goods supplied shall remain unpaid after the due date for payment has passed.
Pending payment for the goods the Buyer has the right to dispose of the goods in the course of its business as agent for the Company (but warranties, conditions or representations given or made by the Buyer or any third party shall not be binding on the Company who shall be indemnified by the Buyer with respect thereto)
In the event of such a disposal the Buyer shall forthwith hold the proceeds of any such sales in trust for the Company to the extent of the full invoice price of the goods.
If the Buyer incorporates such goods into other products (with the addition of its goods or those of others) or uses such goods as material for other products (with or without such addition) the property in those other products shall be deemed upon such incorporation or use to be transferred to the Company and the Buyer as agent for the Company will store the same for the Company in a proper manner without charge to the Company.
Delivery of the goods shall be deemed to have been made to the Buyer upon completion of unloading at premises specified by the Buyer for delivery, or upon collection of the goods by the Buyer or by a carrier nominated by the Buyer.
If the contract provides for delivery by instalments, each instalment shall be deemed to form a separate contract governed by these conditions, provided that any delay in delivery or non-delivery of any instalment shall not entitle the Buyer to treat any such contract as at an end or to reject any other instalment.
It shall be the duty of the Buyer before using goods supplied by the Company for any purpose and before parting with possession of the same, to test and examine the goods in respect and to satisfy himself of their fitness for the purpose for which they are intended to be used.

If the Buyer shall make any complaint within the times stipulated the Company shall, after it has had a reasonable time to investigate the same and examine the goods in dispute be entitled, at its discretion, to replace the goods (If defective), or to accept the return of the goods (if defective) and credit the Buyer with sum not exceeding the amount of the net invoice price which is attributable to the goods which are subject to claim.
RETURN OF GOODS 11
The return of the goods shall not be made without prior written arrangement between the Buyer and the Company.
Goods, which the Company has agreed to accept back into its own warehouse stock will be subject to a handling, charge of not less that 25% of the invoiced value of such goods. All goods returned must have been properly prepared for transportation and be in undamaged condition. The Company will be unable to credit any goods returned that do not comply with this requirement.
The Company shall not be bound by any oral warranty or representation given or made on its behalf unless contained in a written contract or otherwise confirmed in writing by an authorised officer of the Company, or by an implied term, condition or warranty whether arising by implication of law or to be implied by circumstances save and except a warranty that goods sold shall correspond with the contractual description.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY 13
Except as otherwise expressly mentioned in these conditions the Company shall have no liability of any kind whatsoever to the Buyer in respect of any loss or damage (whether direct, indirect, economic or consequentially) suffered by the Buyer to property or otherwise in respect of any goods supplied or work done by the Company (other than liability for negligence resulting in personal injury or death).
The Buyer shall indemnify the Company against any claim made against the Company by a third party arising out of any goods supplies by the Company.
