2 Basis of sale

2.1 These Conditions apply to all contracts for the sale of goods entered into by Seller. By placing an offer or order with Seller, whether in respect of the Quotation or otherwise, Buyer offers to deal with Seller on these Conditions to the exclusion of all other terms, conditions, warranties or representations (including those endorsed on, delivered with or contained in Buyer’s purchase order, confirmation of order, specification or other document) with the exception of any terms specified in the Quotation or on Seller’s acceptance of order form.

2.2 The Quotation does not itself constitute an offer to supply the Goods. The Contract is formed when Seller accepts Buyer’s offer or order.

2.3 No variation to these Conditions shall be binding unless agreed in Writing and signed by authorised representatives on behalf of each of Buyer and Seller.

2.4 All samples, drawings, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued by Seller and any descriptions or illustrations contained in Seller’s catalogues or brochures are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract and this is not a sale by sample.

2.5 Seller’s employees and agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless confirmed by Seller in Writing. In entering into the Contract Buyer acknowledges that it does not rely on any such representations which are not so confirmed. Buyer irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to claim damages for and/or to rescind the Contract as a result of any misrepresentation (other than those made fraudulently) whether or not contained in the Contract.

2.6 Any typographical, clerical or other error or omission in the Specification, the Quotation or any price list, acceptance of offer, invoice or other document, literature or information issued by Seller shall be subject to correction without any liability on the part of Seller.

2.7 Any advice or recommendation given by Seller, its employees or agents to Buyer as to the storage, application or use of the Goods which is not confirmed by Seller in writing is acted upon entirely at Buyer’s own risk and Seller shall not be liable for any such advice or recommendation which is not so confirmed.

2.8 Buyer shall promptly supply all information and assistance reasonably requested by Seller in order to manufacture or supply the Goods.

3 Sale and purchase

3.1 Buyer agrees to purchase the Goods from Seller and Seller agrees to sell the Goods to Buyer.

3.2 Buyer shall not be entitled to cancel in whole or in part any order which Seller has accepted, whether orally or in writing.

3.3 Buyer shall accept manufacturing tolerances customary in the trade and weights or quantities for bulk deliveries of the Goods varying by not more than 10% from the weight or quantity specified in the Contract and shall pay pro-rata for the actual weight or quantity delivered. The weight or quantity stated on Seller’s despatch note shall be conclusive evidence of the amount delivered except in cases of manifest error.

3.4 If the Goods are to be manufactured or any process is to be applied to them by Seller in accordance with any specifications submitted by Buyer or if the Goods are to be marked with any trade mark at the request of Buyer, Buyer shall indemnify Seller against all loss, damages, costs and expenses awarded against or incurred by Seller in connection with or paid or agreed to be paid by Seller in settlement of any claim for infringement of any Intellectual Property Rights or misuse of any confidential information of any other person or any other liability whatsoever which results from Seller’s use of Buyer’s specifications or the marking of the Goods or from the sale or supply of such Goods by Seller pursuant to the provisions of sub-clauses 4.8 or 9.6 below.

3.5 Seller reserves the right to make any changes in the specification of the Goods which are required to conform with any applicable safety or other requirements or which result from variations in raw materials or their suppliers available to Seller or which do not materially affect the quality or performance of the Goods.

4 Delivery

4.1 Seller shall use its reasonable efforts to deliver the Goods to Buyer at the Delivery Address on or around the Estimated Delivery Date, but time of delivery shall not be of the essence.

4.2 Seller shall be entitled to deliver the Goods in instalments in which case each instalment shall be treated as an entirely separate contract and any default or breach by Seller in respect of any such instalment shall not entitle Buyer to cancel any other instalment or terminate the Contract or treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.

4.3 If the Goods are damaged on delivery or less than the correct amount of the Goods is delivered, then unless Buyer notifies both the carrier by making a note on the delivery note and the Seller (otherwise than via the delivery note) within three days of delivery no claim against Seller may be made in respect of damage to or short delivery of such Goods.

4.6 Seller shall be entitled to require immediate payment of the price of the Goods or provision of security reasonably acceptable to Seller in the event that the provisions of sub-clauses 4.8 or 10.1 below apply. Failure by Buyer to comply with such requirement shall be considered to be an irremediable breach of Buyer’s obligations under the Contract.

4.7 Subject to the other provisions of these Conditions, Seller shall not be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss (all three of which terms include, without limitation, pure economic loss, loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and similar loss), costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Goods (even if caused by Supplier’s negligence), nor shall any delay entitle Buyer to terminate or rescind the Contract unless such delay exceeds 60 (sixty) days.

Seller shall be entitled to recover from Buyer all and any costs and expenses incurred as a result of Buyer’s failure to do so, including in particular Seller’s charges for any delivery which takes more than 2 hours (otherwise than to the extent that delay is caused by Seller or its carrier).

6 Prices and payment

6.6 Buyer shall make payment to Seller in respect of all invoices in full and without any deduction or set off (whether in relation to such invoice or otherwise) within 30 days after the end of the month in which the invoice is issued unless other payment terms have been agreed. Time of payment shall be of the essence.

6.7 All payments made by Buyer to Seller whether pursuant to the Contract or otherwise shall be applied to invoices issued by Seller and to Goods or other goods listed in such invoices in the sequence determined in its discretion by Seller.

6.8 If full payment of any amount payable to it under the Contract is not received by Seller by the due date then, without prejudice to its rights, Seller shall be entitled to:

Unless Seller expressly elects otherwise any contract between it and Buyer for the supply of the Goods shall remain in existence notwithstanding any exercise by Seller of any of its rights under this clause 9.

9.9 Buyer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any goods which remain the property of Seller but, if Buyer does so, all monies owing by Buyer to Seller shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of Seller) forthwith become due and payable.
