3.9 All samples, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued by Us and any descriptions or illustrations contained in Our catalogues or brochures are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximately idea of the Equipment described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract unless specifically so incorporated in writing by Us.

4.1 We reserve the right, at Our option, to require payment of the Price in full or in part, or the payment of a non-refundable deposit, prior to despatch of the Equipment and/ or provision of the Services and reserve the right to withhold delivery of the Equipment/and or provision of the Services or any part of them until such payment is received.
4.2 We reserve the right, by giving notice in writing to You at any time prior to completion of the Contract, to increase the Price to reflect any increase in the cost to Us in executing the Contract due to any factor beyond Our control (including, without limitation, any increase in the cost of labour, raw materials or overheads, currency fluctuations, any changes in delivery dates, quantities or specifications for the Equipment and/or Services arising as a result of any error or omission or changes deemed necessary by You, or any delay or interruption in the Contract not attributable to Us.
4.3 All Prices are exclusive of VAT and similar taxes, which You shall be additionally liable to pay to Us upon presentation of a suitable invoice from Us.
4.4 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Price is exclusive of packing and transport, for which We shall make additional charges at Our rates prevailing at the time of delivery.
5.1 Payment of the Price (and VAT) shall be due within 30 days from the date of Our invoice (notwithstanding that delivery may not have taken place, and the title in the Equipment has not passed to You). Without prejudice to Condition 4.1 We shall be entitled to render an invoice upon dispatch of the Equipment. The time of payment of the Price shall be of the essence of the Contract. Payment may be made in Sterling (unless specified otherwise in the Quotation or the Order Acknowledgement).
5.2 Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue from the date when payment became due from day to day until the date of payment at a rate of 8% per annum and shall accrue at such a rate both before and after judgment. You agree to reimburse Us all costs and expenses (including legal costs on a full indemnity basis) incurred in the collection of any overdue account. If You fail to make any payment due to Us on the due date, then without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to Us, We shall be entitled to cancel the Contract so far as any Equipment remain to be delivered or Services performed under it, or suspend any further delivery of Equipment or performance of any Service.
5.3 No right of set off shall exist in respect of any claims by You against Us unless and until such claims are accepted in full by Us in writing and You shall not be entitled to withhold all or any part of any such which has become due for payment under the Contract.
5.4 If the Equipment is to be delivered in instalments, then notwithstanding the provisions of Condition 5.1 We reserve the right to invoice You on the dispatch of each instalment separately, and You shall pay such invoices in accordance with these Conditions. If You fail to pay any instalment of the Price when due, then (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of Ours), the whole of the Price for each remaining instalment of Equipment and/or performance of the Services shall become immediately due and payable (irrespective of the non-delivery).
6.1 Delivery of the Equipment shall occur at the place specified in the Quotation, or Order Acknowledgement. If You purchase the Equipment Ex Works, then You shall be responsible for collection of the Equipment, and its transportation, from Our premises.
6.2 Non-delivery of the Equipment must be notified to Us within four working days of the invoice date. Failure to do so shall preclude You from any rights or remedies against Us for such non-delivery. If We fail to deliver the Equipment for any reason other than any cause beyond Our reasonable control or Your fault, and We are accordingly liable to You, Our liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to You (in the cheapest available market) of similar goods to replace those not delivered over the Price of the Equipment.
6.3 You (or the Person to whom the Equipment has been delivered by Us on Your behalf, if applicable) is required to acknowledge receipt of all Equipment by signing the delivery note supplied by Us or Our agents, at the time of delivery. You are responsible for checking that the Equipment actually delivered corresponds with the Equipment specified on the delivery note. Signature of the delivery note by You (or Your agents, or the Person to whom the Equipment has been delivered by Us on Your behalf) shall be deemed to be conclusive proof that the Equipment was delivered in accordance with the delivery note, and You shall be bound to pay the Price as if the Equipment had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.
6.4 If You shall fail to accept delivery of the Equipment as and when proffered by Us, then We shall be deemed to have tendered and You to have refused delivery at that date.
6.5 If You fail or refuse to take delivery of the Equipment on the due date or fail to give Us adequate instructions for delivery at the time stated, then You shall be liable to Us for any loss or costs arising from such failure or refusal and for a reasonable charge by Us for the care, custody, storage and insurance of the Equipment until actual delivery. We may also sell the Equipment at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to You for the excess over the Price or charge You for any shortfall below the Price. This provision shall be in addition to and not in substitution of any other payment or damages for which You may become liable in respect of Your failure to take delivery at the appropriate time.
6.6 Whilst We shall use all reasonable endeavours to deliver the Equipment and provide Services on the due date, those dates are approximate only and We shall not be liable for any delay in despatch or delivery, or any loss or damage thereby arising, unless You have stipulated in writing on the Order that the Equipment must be delivered by a certain date, and the reason for the deadline. If no dates are so specified, delivery shall be within a reasonable time. Time of delivery shall not be the essence, and You shall not be able to cancel the Contract, refuse delivery of the Equipment or withhold payment on account of any delay howsoever caused.
6.7 Subject to the other provisions of these Conditions We shall not be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss (all three of which terms include, without limitation, pure economic loss, loss of anticipated profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill, loss of revenue, business interruption, loss of data), costs, damages, charges, claims, fines, penalties, interest or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Equipment or provision of the Services (even if caused by Our negligence).
6.8 Responsibility for unloading of the Equipment from the transport shall be agreed between You and Us at the relevant time. Once the Equipment has been unloaded,You shall be responsible for moving the Equipment to the correct desired location within Your premises, and for installing the Equipment at that location, unless You have contracted Us to undertake the installation in the Quotation or Order Acknowledgement.
6.9 We reserve the right to deliver the Equipment in instalments and each such instalment shall constitute a separate Contract. Failure by Us to deliver any one or more of the instalments shall not entitle You to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
7.1 The risk of damage to or loss of the Equipment shall pass to You, if the Equipment is purchased Ex works, at the time We specify to You for collection of the Equipment, or otherwise at the time of delivery to the address for delivery stated in the Quotation or in the Order Acknowledgement or, if You wrongfully fail to take delivery of the Equipment, the time when We have tendered delivery of the Equipment.
7.2 Any claim by You which is based on the quality or condition of the Equipment or its failure to correspond with the Quotation or the Order Acknowledgement shall (whether or not delivery is refused by You) be notified to Us within four days from the delivery date or (where the defect was not apparent on reasonable inspection) within a reasonable time after discovery of the failure to correspond with the Quotation or the Order Acknowledgement. Any claim by You that the incorrect quantity of Equipment was delivered is governed by Condition 6.2. If delivery is not refused, and We are not so notified within the time limit, You shall not be entitled to reject the Equipment and We shall have no liability for such defect or failure, and You shall be bound to pay the price as if the Equipment had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.
7.3 Unless Condition 7.2 is strictly observed, We shall be under no liability whatsoever in respect of any loss or damage in transit (or non-delivery) of the whole or any part of the Equipment.

If the Equipment is not situated at Your premises, but at the premises of a third party with whom You have contracted, then You shall procure that We (or Our agents) are granted rights of access to that third party’s premises, and shall be permitted to remove the Equipment from those premises. To facilitate this right, You (by entering into the Contract) irrevocably authorise Us (or Our agents) to act as Your attorney when dealing with any such third party. This right shall continue to subsist notwithstanding the termination of the Contract through the happening of any of the events specified in these conditions or otherwise and without prejudice to any accrued rights of Ours under the Contract.
8.3 You shall keep the Equipment in good condition and shall maintain full insurance in respect thereof on Our behalf in an amount which is not less than the price payable to Us for the Equipment, and all proceeds of such insurance shall be held on trust for Us.
8.4 If Condition 8.1 is held to be invalid to reserve Our title to Equipment delivered under this Contract by reason of the reservation of title until all Equipment delivered to You by Us have been paid for, then nevertheless ownership of the Equipment delivered under this Contract shall remain with Us until that Equipment itself has been paid for.
8.5 You shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Equipment which remain the property of Us, but if You do so, all monies owing by You to US shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of Ours) become immediately due and payable.
