4. Warranties and liability
4.1 Subject as expressly provided in these Conditions, and except where the Goods are sold to a person dealing as a consumer (within the meaning of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977) all warranties, conditions, or other terms implied by statute or common law are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. For the avoidance of all doubt the Company gives no warranty as to the fitness of the Goods for any particular purpose whether or not such purpose is known to the Company.
4.2 Subject to the conditions set out below the Company warrants that the Goods will correspond with their specification and will be of a satisfactory quality within the meaning of the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994 at the time of delivery and that the Services will be performed to the standards reasonably expected in the industry.
4.3 The Company will transfer to the Buyer the benefit of any manufacturers’ warranty or guarantee (if any) given to the Company.
4.4 Any claim by the Buyer which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Goods or their failure to correspond with specification at the time of delivery shall (whether or not delivery is refused by the Buyer) be notified to the Company and the carrier within 3 days from the date of delivery and the Goods and their original packaging should be retained for inspection by the Company and/or the carrier. If delivery is not refused, and the Buyer does not notify the Company and the carrier accordingly and/or does not provide the Goods and packaging for inspection, the Buyer shall be deemed to have accepted the Goods as conforming in all respects with the Contract.
4.5 Where any valid claim in respect of any of the Goods which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Goods or their failure to meet the specification is notified to the Company and the carrier in accordance with clause 4.4 the Company shall be entitled to replace the Goods (or the part in question) free of charge or, at the Company’s sole discretion, refund to the Buyer the Price of the Goods (or proportionate part of the Price), but the Company shall have no further liability to the Buyer.
4.6 The Company shall not be liable to the Buyer in respect of defects in the Goods arising in the following circumstances:
4.6.1 any defect in the Goods where such defect is the result of inaccurate, inadequate or defective instructions and specifications from the Buyer; and/or

4.7 Subject to clause 4.10:
4.7.1 the Company shall not be liable to the Buyer by reason of any representation, or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law, or under the express terms of the Contract, for any consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit or otherwise) costs, expenses or other claims for consequential compensation whatsoever (and whether caused by the negligence of the Company, its employees or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the supply of the Goods or their use by the Buyer and/or the supply of Services, except as expressly provided in these Conditions; and
4.7.2 the Company’s total liability to the Buyer in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty) misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the Contract shall be limited to the Price.
4.8 The Company shall not be liable to the Buyer by reason of any delay in performing, or any failure to perform any of the Company’s obligations under the Contract, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond the Company’s reasonable control. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the following shall be regarded as causes beyond the Company’s reasonable control: Act of God, explosion, flood, tempest, fire or accident; war or threat of war, sabotage, insurrection, civil disturbance or requisition; acts, restrictions, regulation, bye-laws, prohibitions or measures of any kind on the part of any governmental, parliamentary or local authority; import or export regulations or embargoes; strikes, lock-outs or other industrial actions or trade disputes (whether involving employees of the Company or of a third party); difficulties in obtaining raw materials, labour, fuel, parts or machinery; power failure or breakdown in machinery.
4.9 Notwithstanding any other clause of these Conditions the Company will not accept return of or be liable for any Goods returned to the Company by the Buyer (for any reason whatsoever) which are not packaged (using the exact same packaging) in the same way as when dispatched for delivery by the Company unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by the Company.
4.10 Nothing in the Conditions shall limit or exclude any liability of the Company for personal injury or death arising from the negligence of the Company or its employees or for fraudulent misrepresentation.
5.1 Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods and/or Services are approximate only and the Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods and/or Services howsoever caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence unless previously agreed by the Company in writing. The Goods may be delivered by the Company in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Buyer.
5.2 If the Company delivers to the Buyer a quantity of Goods up to 10% more or less than the quantity the Company accepted to supply the Buyer shall not be entitled to object to or reject the Goods or any of them by reason of the surplus or shortfall and shall pay for such goods at the pro rata Price.
5.3 Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Company 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.
5.4 If the Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Company adequate delivery instruction at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond the Buyer’s reasonable control or by reason of the Company’s fault) then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Company, the Company may:
5.4.1 store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Buyer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of the storage; or
5.4.2 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.
5.5 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, where Goods are to be exported outside the United Kingdom the Buyer shall be responsible for obtaining at the Buyer’s cost any export licences required for such export.
6. Title and risk
6.1 Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods shall pass to the Buyer on Delivery, which for the avoidance of doubt means that where the Buyer collects or procures collection of the Goods from the Company’s premises the risk in the Goods will have passed to the Buyer before the loading of the Goods into any vehicle and where Delivery is to take place at premises other than the Company’s premises the risk in the Goods will have passed to the Buyer before unloading the Goods from the delivery vehicle. The Buyer is advised to insure the Goods accordingly.
6.2 Notwithstanding Delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, or any other provision of these Conditions, the property in the Goods supplied under the Contract shall not pass to the Buyer until the Company has received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the Price of the Goods and Services (where applicable) and all other goods and/or services agreed to be sold by the Company to the Buyer for which payment is then due.
6.3 Notwithstanding payment made by the Buyer for any special moulds, dyes or tools in accordance with clause 3.2, title in such moulds, dyes or tools shall at all times remain with the Company.
7. Retention of Title
7.1 Until such time as the property in the goods supplied under the Contract passes to the Buyer, the Buyer shall hold such goods as the Company’s fiduciary agent and bailee, and shall keep such goods (at no cost to the Company) separate from those of the Buyer and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and identified as the Company’s property.
7.2 Until such time as the property in the goods supplied under the Contract passes to the Buyer the Company shall be entitled at any time to require the Buyer to deliver up such goods to the Company 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 such goods.
7.3 The Buyer shall not, without the consent of the Company, be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any goods which remain the property of the Company, but if the Buyer does so all moneys owing by the Buyer to the Company shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Company) forthwith become due and payable.
8. Default of the Buyer
8.1 Without prejudice to any other rights of the Company under these Conditions, the Company shall be entitled to treat the Contract as cancelled by the Buyer with immediate effect and without notice on the terms specified in clause 2.13 in the following circumstances:
8.1.1 The Buyer makes any voluntary arrangement with its creditors or becomes subject to an administration order or (being an individual or firm) becomes bankrupt or (being a company) goes into liquidation (otherwise than for the purposes of amalgamation or reconstruction); or
8.1.2 An encumbrancer takes possession, or a receiver, administrator, administrative receiver or manager is appointed, over the whole or any part of the property or assets of the Buyer; or
8.1.3 The Buyer ceases, or threatens to cease, to carry on business; or
8.1.4 The Company reasonably apprehends that any of the events mentioned above is about to occur in relation to the Buyer and notifies the Buyer accordingly.
8.2 If this clause applies then without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Company, the Company shall be entitled to exercise any of its rights under clause 7 of these Conditions.
9.1 Save where otherwise stated in these Conditions, the Contract is between the Company and the Buyer as principles and shall not be assignable by the Buyer without the consent of the Company.
9.2 Any notice required or permitted to be given by either party to the other under these Conditions shall be in writing addressed to that other party at its registered office or principle place of business or such other address as may at the relevant time have been notified pursuant to this provision to the party giving the notice.
9.3 No waiver by the Company of any breach of these Conditions by the Buyer shall be considered as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.
9.4 If any provision of these Conditions is held by any competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part the validity of the other provisions of these Conditions and the remainder of the provision in question shall not be affected thereby.
9.5 Unless otherwise stated, nothing in the Contract shall create any rights for third parties under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
9.6 All Contracts shall be governed by the laws of England and be subject to the exclusive Jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales.
