Solvent‚") and the Seller offers the Clean Solvent to the Buyer, the Buyer may
purchase the Clean Solvent from the Seller (such sale to be solely at the
Seller‚ discretion) at a price to be agreed between the parties but the Seller
gives no undertaking that the Clean Solvent shall be fit for any given purpose
or of satisfactory quality, and accordingly all warranties implied by statute or
common law are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
7. Payment terms
7.1 Subject to any special terms agreed in writing between the Buyer and the
Seller, the Seller shall be entitled to invoice the Buyer with the price of the
Goods (and Goods for the purpose of this Clause 7 shall include the Clean
Solvent) 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.
7.2 The Buyer shall pay the price of the Goods (less any prompt payment
discount to which the Buyer is entitled but without any other deduction) not
later than the end of the calendar month next following the date of the invoice
relating to the Goods. The time of payment should be of the essence of the
Contract. All payments shall be made in full without deduction in respect of
any set-off or counterclaim.

to any other right or remedy available to the Seller, the Seller shall be entitled

the amount unpaid, at the rate of 2¬Ω per cent per annum over the

8. Delivery
8.1 Delivery of the Goods (and Goods for the purpose of this Clause 8 shall
include the Clean Solvent) shall be made by the Buyer collecting the Goods
at the Seller‚ premises at any time after the Seller has notified the Buyer that
the Goods are ready for collection or, if some other place for delivery is
agreed by the Seller, by the Seller delivering the Goods to that place.
8.2 The Seller shall endeavour to deliver the Goods by the date quoted for
delivery but such date is not guaranteed nor shall the time for delivery be of
the essence unless previously agreed by the Seller in writing. The date
quoted for delivery shall be extended by a reasonable period if there is any
delay caused by industrial dispute or by any cause beyond the reasonable
control of the Seller. The Goods may be delivered by the Seller in advance of
the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Buyer.
8.3 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 as repudiated.
8.4 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
by reason of any cause beyond the Buyer‚ reasonable control or by reason
of the Seller‚ fault) then without prejudice to any other right or remedy
available to the Seller, the Seller may:
(a) store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Buyer for the
reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or
(b) 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.
9. Risk and property
9.1 Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods shall pass to the Buyer:
(a) in the case of Goods to be delivered at the Seller‚ premises, at the
time when the Seller notifies the Buyer that the Goods are available
for collection; or
(b) in the case of Goods to be delivered otherwise than at the Seller‚
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.
9.2 Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, or any other
provision of these Conditions, the property in the Goods 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 all other goods agreed to be sold by the Seller to
the Buyer for which payment is then due.
9.3 Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Buyer, the Buyer
shall hold the Goods as the Seller‚ fiduciary agent and bailee, and shall keep
the Goods separate from those of the Buyer and third parties and properly
stored, protected, insured and identified as the Seller‚ property. Until that
time the Buyer shall be entitled to resell or use the Goods in the ordinary
course of its business.
9.4 Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Buyer (and
provided that 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.
9.5 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 monies owing by the Buyer to the
Seller shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Seller)
forthwith become due and payable.

reasonable inspection) within a reasonable time after discovery of the defect
or failure. All packaging materials must be retained for 28 days by the Buyer
for inspection by the Seller‚ representative.

in accordance with the provisions of this Condition, the Buyer shall not be

defects or failure, and the Buyer shall be bound to pay the price as if the
Goods had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.

statutory rights of the Buyer are not affected by these Conditions.
11.6 If the Seller fails to deliver the Goods for any reason other than any cause
