  4. DELIVERY OF GOODS

    1. Delivery of the Goods will take place as follows:
      1. Delivery in the UK: Where Goods are to be delivered to a location in the UK the Seller shall deliver the Goods to the location set out in the Order or such other location as the parties may agree (Delivery Location) at any time after the Seller notifies the Buyer that the Goods are ready.
      2. Delivery outside the UK: Where the Goods are required to be delivered to a location outside of the UK the Seller shall notify the Buyer when the Goods are ready for collection and the Buyer shall make appropriate arrangements for the Goods to be collected from the Seller’s premises as specified in the Order (Delivery Location) within three Business Days of the Seller notifying the Buyer that the Goods are ready, or if agreed otherwise by the Seller and the Buyer, at such other location as may be specified in the Order (Delivery Location). For the avoidance of doubt, any arrangements for delivery of the Goods and the responsibilities of the parties in respect thereof, shall be clarified by reference to the relevant Incoterm as specified in the Order or on the relevant Order acknowledgement.
    2. Delivery of the Goods: where the goods are to be delivered by the Seller to a location based in the United Kingdom delivery shall be completed on the Goods’ arrival at the Delivery Location. Where the Goods are to be collected by the Buyer, delivery of the Goods shall be completed when the Goods are loaded into the collection bay at the Delivery Location. Where the Goods are to be delivered by the Seller to a location based outside the UK, as agreed by the parties, delivery shall take place on the Good’s arrival at the Delivery Location.
    3. Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence. The Seller shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods that is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Buyer’s failure to provide the Seller with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
    4. If the Seller fails to deliver the Goods, its liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Buyer in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods. The Seller shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Goods to the extent that such failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Buyer’s failure to provide the Seller with adequate delivery instructions for the Goods or any relevant instruction related to the supply of the Goods.
    5. If the Buyer fails to accept delivery of the Goods or (unless agreed otherwise by the parties) to collect the Goods within three Business Days of the Seller notifying the Buyer that the Goods are ready, then except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or by the Seller’s failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract in respect of the Goods:

      2. the Seller shall store the Goods until delivery takes place, and charge the Buyer for all related costs and expenses (including insurance).
    6. If ten Business Days after the Seller notified the Buyer that the Goods were ready for collection or delivery and the Buyer has not accepted or taken delivery of them, the Seller may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling costs, account to the Buyer for any excess over the price of the Goods or charge the Buyer for any shortfall below the price of the Goods.
    7. The Buyer shall not be entitled to reject the Goods if the Seller delivers up to and including 5 per cent more or less than the quantity of Goods ordered, but a pro-rata adjustment shall be made to the Order invoice on receipt of notice from the Buyer that the wrong quantity of Goods was delivered.
    8. The Seller may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Buyer to cancel any other instalment.
  5. TITLE AND RISK

    1. The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer on completion of delivery at the Delivery Location except where the Contract specifies a particular Incoterm, in which case risk shall pass to the Buyer in accordance with the relevant Incoterm. If delivery is to be made in accordance with the Incoterms, the Incoterm which is relevant to the Contract shall be specified in the Order or on the relevant Order acknowledgement.
    2. Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the Seller has received payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for:
      1. the Goods; and
      2. any other goods that the Seller has supplied to the Buyer in respect of which payment has become due.
    3. Until title to the Goods has passed to the Buyer, the Buyer shall:
      1. hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as the Seller’s bailee;
      2. store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Buyer so that they remain readily identifiable as the Seller’s property;
      3. not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;
      4. maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price on the Seller’s behalf from the date of delivery;
      5. notify the Seller immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in condition 13.1.2; and
      6. give the Seller such information relating to the Goods as the Seller may require from time to time but the Buyer may resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business.
    4. If before title to the Goods passes to the Buyer the Buyer becomes subject to any of the events listed in condition 13.1.2, or the Seller reasonably believes that any such event is about to happen and notifies the Buyer accordingly, then, provided the Goods have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product, and without limiting any other right or remedy the Seller may have, the Seller may at any time require the Buyer to deliver up the Goods and, if the Buyer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Buyer or of any third party where the Goods are stored in order to recover them.
    5. The Buyer shall keep the Goods fully insured to their full replacement value against all risks prudently insured against and keep the Goods in good repair and condition between risk and property passing to the Buyer. The Buyer shall produce evidence of such insurance upon request by the Seller. If the Buyer fails to insure the Goods as required, the Seller may do so on behalf of the Buyer, who shall reimburse the Seller on demand. Until the full price has been paid the Buyer shall hold on trust for the Seller the policy and proceeds of insurance, and shall on request execute a formal assignment in favour of the Seller.
    6. When arranging carriage and/or insurance of the Goods in transit, the Seller shall be deemed to be acting solely as agent of the Buyer and sections 32(2) and (3) of the Sales of Goods Act 1979 shall not apply.

The Seller may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Buyer against any amount payable by the Seller to the Buyer.
  10. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

    1. All Intellectual Property Rights in or arising out of or in connection with the Services shall be owned by the Seller.
    2.
