Title & Risk

The goods are at the risk of the customer as soon as they have been delivered to or into custody of the customer or the customer’s agent.
Until property in the goods passes to the customer the goods are merely entrusted to the customer as fiduciary and the company remains the legal and beneficial owner of the goods with full power to re-sell and regain possession of them if the customer defaults in payment of the purchase price.
If the customer defaults in payment of the purchase price or if the customer becomes insolvent, the company and/or its authorised agents may at any time without notice to the customer enter onto the customer’s premises at which the goods are situated, for the purpose of recovering possession of them.

All such payments received by the company shall be allocated to the oldest account due for payment.
Conflict with Customer’s Terms
If any purchase order or other trading terms of the customer conflict with or are inconsistent with any of the company’s terms and conditions of sale, then the company’s terms and conditions of sale as amended from time to time prevail, and will apply notwithstanding any conflicting or inconsistent terms of the customer.
The customer acknowledges that the sale by the company of any goods will not constitute acceptance of any conditions of purchase of the customer which conflict or are inconsistent with any of the supplier’s terms and conditions of sale, even where the company acknowledges the customer’s conditions prior to, upon or by delivery of goods.
A waiver by the Company with respect to any breach or default by the Customer shall not constitute a continuing waiver of any other breach or default or of any other right or remedy. A failure or delay by the company in exercising a right or remedy does not operate as a waiver of that right or remedy.
The Company reserves the right to sub-contract the production, manufacture or supply of the whole or part of the Goods or any of the materials to be supplied.
