in the dealings between the parties, including any standard or printed terms tendered by the Buyer, unless the
Buyer specifically states in writing, separately from such terms, that it wishes such terms to apply and this has
been acknowledged by the Seller in writing. Any variation to these Terms and Conditions (including any special
terms and conditions agreed between the parties) shall be inapplicable unless agreed in writing by the Seller.
Price and Payment
The price shall be the Recommended Retail Price less agreed discount, unless otherwise agreed in writing
between the parties. The price is exclusive of VAT or any other applicable costs. Credit terms may be offered
subject to satisfactory credit vetting of the Buyer by the Seller. The offer of credit will be at the sole discretion
of the Seller. Where credit is offered payment of the price and VAT and any other applicable costs shall be due
within 30 days of the date of the invoice supplied by the Seller, unless otherwise agreed in writing. In cases
where credit is not offered payment will be required before release of goods by the Seller. The Seller shall be
entitled to charge interest on overdue invoices from the date when payment becomes due from day to day until
the date of payment at a rate of 20 per cent per annum above the base rate of the National Westminster Bank

• refuse to make delivery of any undelivered Goods without incurring any liability whatever to the Buyer for
non-delivery or any delay in delivery;
Any description given or applied to the Goods is given by way of identification only and the use of such
description shall not constitute a sale by description. For the avoidance of doubt, the Buyer hereby affirms that
it does not in any way rely on any description when entering into the contract.
Where a sample of the Goods is shown to and inspected by the Buyer, the parties hereto accept that such a
sample is representative in nature and the bulk of the order may differ slightly as a result of the manufacturing
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, delivery of the Goods shall take place at the address specified by the
Buyer on, or as close as possible to the date required by the Buyer. The Buyer shall make all arrangements
necessary to take delivery of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery. If the Seller is unable to
deliver the Goods because of actions or circumstances under the control of the Buyer, then the Seller shall be
entitled to place the Goods in storage until such times as delivery may be effected and the Buyer shall be
liable for any expense associated with such storage. Any damages, shortages, over deliveries and duplicated
orders should be reported to the Seller within 1 days of receipt to enable replacement or refund.
Risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer upon receipt of the goods. Where the Buyer chooses to collect the
Goods itself, risk will pass when the Goods are entrusted to it or set aside for its collection, whichever
Title in the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the Seller has been paid in full for the Goods.
RETURN OF UNUSED GOODS
All goods are sold on a firm sale basis, i.e. the Seller will not take back any goods not required or sold by the
Buyer, unless otherwise agreed, in which case the following terms apply. Any returns must be authorised by a
representative of the Seller before any credit will be given. Where the Seller agrees to accept the return of
goods that are not damaged the Buyer will be responsible for the cost of carriage and will ensure that they
are carefully packaged to avoid any damage in transit. The Seller will not be obliged to accept any goods that
are customised or damaged in any way. The Seller will only accept returns that appear in the Sellers current
Publication List. Credit of amounts due or paid in will only be given for goods that are in saleable condition.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The Seller shall not be liable for any all loss or damage suffered by the Buyer in excess of the contract price.
Nothing contained in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed so as to limit or exclude the liability of
the Seller for death or personal injury as a result of the Seller’s negligence or that of its employees or agents.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
All Intellectual Property Rights produced from or arising as a result of the performance of this Agreement
shall, so far as not already vested, become the absolute property of the Seller, and the Buyer shall do all that
is reasonably necessary to ensure that such rights vest in the Seller by the execution of appropriate
instruments or the making of agreements with third parties.
The Seller shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure
results from events or circumstances outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God,
strikes, lock outs, accidents, war, fire, breakdown of plant or machinery or shortage or unavailability of raw
materials from a natural source of supply, and the Seller shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its
obligations. If the delay persists for such time as the Seller considers unreasonable, it may, without liability on
its part, terminate the contract.

partnership or joint venture between the parties and nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed
to construe either of the parties as the agent of the other.

performance of any obligation sub-contracted, in either case by the Buyer, without the prior written consent of

Conditions herein shall not be a waiver of them or of the right at any time subsequently to enforce all Terms
