4. PRICE AND PAYMENT
4.1. All prices estimated, quoted or invoiced are in United States Dollars (USD$)
4.2. The price of the Goods will be the price stated in the Order Acknowledgement,
being, unless otherwise stated by the Seller, the list price of the Company current
at the date of the Order Acknowledgement. The Seller’s prices are subject to adjustment
to take account of any variation in the Seller’s costs including (but not limited
to) variations in wages, the cost of materials, exchange rate fluctuations, alterations
of duties and other costs since the date of the Seller’s quotation or (if no quotation
is issued) the Purchase Order. The Seller accordingly reserves the right to adjust

process of technical change and development and the Seller therefore reserves the
right to alter specifications without notice at any time before delivery. All descriptions,
illustrations, specifications and dimensions are approximate and are only intended
to present a general guideline as to the type of Goods represented thereby. It is
therefore agreed by the Buyer that Goods supplied may not comply in all respects
with the description in the Seller’s literature or elsewhere.
6.1. The date of delivery specified by the Seller is an estimate only given in good
faith. All risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer on delivery, such that the Buyer

undertakes to use reasonable endeavours to despatch the Goods on the agreed date,
but does not guarantee to do so. Time of delivery shall not be the essence of the
Agreement, unless expressly agreed in writing by the Seller. Goods are delivered
by carriers over whom the Seller has no control and therefore the Seller shall not
be liable for any loss, damage or expense suffered by the Buyer or any other party
by reason of any alleged delay in delivery.

delivered and risk shall pass to the Buyer when they have been loaded on to the Buyer’s

ready to be unloaded at the site specified by the Buyer.
6.4. When delivery is refused by the Buyer or is delayed, suspended or made by instalments
at the request of the Buyer, risk in the Goods (or any of them not delivered in these
circumstances) shall pass to the Buyer immediately upon such refusal or request by
the Buyer and (without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) the Seller shall
place such Goods into store and the cost of storage and insurance of such Goods and
of any attempted delivery of such Goods shall be for the Buyer’s account. .
6.5. No liability for non-delivery, loss of or damage to the Goods occurring prior
to delivery or for any claim that the Goods are not in accordance with the Agreement
will attach to the Seller unless claims to that effect are notified in writing by
the Buyer to the Seller: (a) within 7 days of delivery for loss damage or non-compliance
with the Agreement or (b) for non-delivery within 10 days of the delivery date specified
by the Seller. If the Buyer fails to give such notice the Goods shall be deemed
to be in all respects in accordance with the Agreement and, without prejudice to
earlier acceptance by the Buyer, the Buyer shall be bound to accept and pay for the

orders), of the Seller’s advice to the Buyer that Goods are ready for despatch, the

Goods and each of them on a fiduciary basis as a custodier/bailee for the Seller.
The Buyer shall store the Goods separately from all other Goods in its possession
and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as the property of the
Seller. The Buyer shall not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging
on or relating to the Goods. The Buyer shall maintain the Goods in satisfactory
condition and keep them insured on the Seller’s behalf for their full price against
all risks to the reasonable satisfaction of the Seller. On request the Buyer shall
produce the policy of insurance to the Seller.
7.3. Notwithstanding that, the Goods remain the property of the Seller; the Buyer
may sell the Goods in the ordinary course of the Buyer’s business at full market
value for the account of the Seller. Until property in the Goods passes from the
Seller, the entire proceeds of sale or otherwise of the Goods shall be held on trust
for the Seller.
7.4. Until such time as property in the Goods passes from the Seller to the Buyer,
the Buyer shall, upon request, deliver up such Goods as have not ceased to be in
existence or resold, to the Seller. If the Buyer fails to do so, the Seller may enter
upon any premises owned or occupied or controlled by the Buyer where the Goods are
situated and repossess the Goods.

notwithstanding that title may not have passed to the Buyer.

by the Seller as well as obtain all necessary permissions and consents including
(without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) promptly obtaining all necessary

the event that the Buyer unlawfully terminates or cancels the Agreement, the Buyer

full amount of any third party costs to which the Seller has committed and in respect
of cancellations on less than 7 days' written notice the full price of the Goods
as set out in the Agreement, and the Buyer agrees this is a genuine pre-estimate
of the Seller's losses in such a case.
