All other terms conditions and warranties whether express or implied, statutory or otherwise, and all representations whether made orally or in writing before or after the date of any Order for Goods and/or Services are (save as may be provided by law) excluded save to the extent that the same appear in these Conditions or are specially agreed after the date of any Order in writing by the duly authorised representatives of both parties. These conditions apply to the provision of both Goods and Services, except where application to one or the other is specified. 
2.2 The Company’s quotation is merely an invitation for an Order subject to these Conditions. The Purchaser’s Order constitutes an offer by the Purchaser to purchase Goods and/or Services in accordance with these Conditions. No Agreement will result until the Company’s authorised representative has confirmed such Order in writing, or where the Company has begun to start fulfilling or delivering an Order, at which point
and on which date the Agreement shall come into existence.
2.3 By making an Order subsequent to receipt of these Conditions the Purchaser acknowledges that these Conditions shall prevail over any qualification or condition purported to be imposed by the Purchaser or any previous course of dealing between the Company and the Purchaser.
2.4 In the event that the Purchaser first receives these Conditions after the date of the Purchaser’s Order but prior to delivery of the Goods and/or Services, the Purchaser shall be deemed to have accepted the Conditions if it raises no objection within five days of notification thereof, or accepts Goods and/or Services delivered pursuant to an Order which has been confirmed by the Company subject to these Conditions.
2.5 The Company shall have complete discretion on whether to accept any Orders, conclude any agreements with the Purchaser or agree any changes to the terms on which an Order is fulfilled.

3. Specifications

3.1 The Company shall provide the Services to the Purchaser in accordance with the Services Specification in all material respects and the Company shall provide the Goods to the Purchaser in accordance with the Goods Specification in all material respects. 3.2 To the extent that the Goods are to be manufactured in accordance with a Goods Specification or the Services are to be supplied in accordance with a Services Specification supplied by the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall indemnify the Company against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal and other professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by the Company in connection with any claim made against the Company for actual or alleged infringement of a third party’s intellectual property rights arising out of or in connection with the Company’s use of the Goods Specification or the Services Specification. This Clause 3.2 shall survive termination of the Agreement. The Company reserves the right to amend the Goods Specification and/or Services Specification (including any spare parts supplied) without prior notice to the Purchaser if required by quality control, engineering improvement and/or any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements, and the Company will notify the Purchaser in any event. 
3.3 All descriptions and illustrations contained in the Company’s price lists, advertising materials and other publications are to present merely a general idea of the Goods and/or Services described in them and shall not form part of an Agreement unless specifically incorporated therein as provided in Clause 2.1 (and this shall include but not limited to any Goods Specifications and/or the Services Specifications which are incorporated with these Conditions).

4.1.1 all Goods will be charged at the Company’s list prices current at the time of despatch; 
4.1.2 all charges for Services shall be on a time and material basis, and the charges shall be calculated in accordance with the Company’s standard daily fee rates from time to time in force; and 4.1.3 the Company shall be entitled to charge the Purchaser for any expenses reasonably incurred by the individuals whom the Company engages in connection with the Services. 
4.2 Unless a binding written quotation is given by the Company, quoted prices may be amended to reflect fluctuations of costs (including increase of wages and material and components costs) between the date of quotation and the date of delivery. Binding quotes will be fixed for the period stated in the quotation or if no period is quoted for 30 days except that, in the case of suspension of work due to failure of the Purchaser to provide any information reasonably required and requested by the Company, the quoted prices may be increased to cover any increase in cost due to such delay or suspension.
4.3 Unless otherwise stated, all prices quoted are exclusive of VAT. 4.4 The Purchaser shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from the Company, pay to the Company such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Services and/or Goods at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services and/or the Goods.  
4.5 Unless otherwise agreed between the Company and the Purchaser, prices quoted for delivery of Goods and/or Services within the United Kingdom are carriage paid. Such delivery charges are not included within the costs of the Goods and/or Services. 
4.6 In case of price discrepancies between Purchaser’s Order and Company’s sales order confirmation and/or invoice, the Company’s prices are applicable (save in respect of manifest error by the Company). 
 

5. Terms of Payment

5.1 Payment on credit accounts shall be strictly due by the end of the month following the month in which the Goods were delivered and/or the Services were completed. The Company reserves the right to vary these terms or to make acceptance of any Order subject to payment in full on or before delivery of the Goods and/or the Services having been completed.
5.2 If it has been agreed to invoice on a proforma basis, in respect of Goods, the Company shall invoice the Purchaser on or at any time after completion of delivery. In respect of Services, the Company shall invoice the Purchaser on completion of the Services. All invoices shall be paid within 30 days of the date of invoice in full and cleared funds. 
5.3 In all other circumstances, payment shall be strictly made at the time of delivery of Goods by any of the following methods: cash, credit card or cheques by agreement unless alternative arrangements are made.

5.6 The Company shall be entitled to make a deduction or set-off from any monies owed by it to the Purchaser in respect of the price of Goods and/or Services supplied to the Purchaser but not paid for.

6. Delivery of Goods

6.1 The Company shall deliver the Goods to the location set out in the Order or such other location as the parties may agree (the “Delivery Location”) at any time after the Company notifies the Purchaser that the Goods are ready for delivery.
6.2 Delivery of the Goods shall be completed on the Goods’ arrival at the Delivery Location, signature of any delivery note by any agent, employee or representative of the Purchaser or any other proof considered acceptable by the Company (in its complete discretion) shall be conclusive proof of delivery.
6.3 The Company will make every effort to maintain quoted dates for delivery but unless any quoted delivery date is stated in writing by the Company’s representative to be binding, such delivery dates shall not form part of any Agreement between the Company and the Purchaser and the Company shall not be liable for failure to deliver the Goods by such dates. The Company will not be liable to the Purchaser for any loss or damage sustained by the Purchaser as a result of any failure by the Company to deliver any Goods by the quoted delivery date(s) and time shall not be of the essence for delivery.
6.4 Any delivery expressed to be binding shall in any event be extended by such period as the Company confirms to be necessary to reflect unavoidable delay in delivery due to the Purchaser failing to supply information, materials or prompt payment required by the Company or any change of specification required by the Purchaser or any cause beyond the Company’s control.
6.5 The Purchaser shall indemnify the Company for all storage and other costs incurred by the Company if the Company is required to store the Goods during normal business hours or at a time previously agreed by the Purchaser because delivery could not be completed. The Company may dispose of any Goods after 30 days from the date of delivery should the Purchaser fail or refuse to take delivery of the Goods without any liability for any loss or damage sustained by the Purchaser.
6.6 Unless otherwise stated in writing, the Company shall be entitled to make partial deliveries or deliveries by instalments and each instalment shall be construed as constituting a separate contract to which these Conditions apply and payment will be due in respect of each instalment as if it were a separate contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Purchaser to cancel any other instalment.  
6.7 The Purchaser shall not be entitled to reject Goods if the Company delivers 10% more or less than the quantity of Goods ordered. Subject to Clause 7.1 below, if the Purchaser or the Company gives notice to the other that the wrong quantity of goods were delivered within 7 days of the delivery of the Goods actually delivered, a pro-rata adjustment shall be made to the Order invoice or (in terms of delivery) the Purchaser may return the excess Goods delivered (at its sole cost).

7.2 The Purchaser shall inspect the Goods immediately on delivery. Any shortages, breakages or defective Goods must be reported in writing to the Company within 5 working days of delivery. If the Purchaser shall not give notice within such period the Goods shall be conclusively presumed to have been accepted by the Purchaser. 7.3 If the Company accepts the Purchaser’s claim under Clause 7.2 above it shall be bound to repair or replace the Goods or at its option to allow the Purchaser credit in respect of the Goods which are the subject of the claim. The Company shall not be liable for any further claims for direct, indirect or consequential damage or loss and its sole obligation shall be making of such repair or replacement or giving of credit as aforesaid. The Company will arrange a collection of Goods subjects to claim under 7.2 and will notify the Purchaser when such collection will take place. The Purchaser shall ensure that the Goods in question are available for collection at the relevant time and shall provide all reasonable assistance to enable the Company to collect the Goods. If the Goods cannot be collected at the specified time, the Purchaser will be liable to return the Goods to the Company at its own expense.  
 

8. Property and Risk of Goods

8.2 In the event that delivery of the Goods and/or Deliverables shall be made to the Purchaser prior to the passing of title, the Purchaser shall be in possession of the Goods and/or Deliverables solely as bailee for the
Company until such time as the title has passed pursuant to Clause 8.1.
8.3 Notwithstanding that title to the Goods and/or Deliverables shall remain with the Company, the Goods and/or Deliverables shall be at the risk of the Purchaser as soon as they are unloaded by the Company at the Purchaser’s premises or as otherwise stated in the Order. The Purchaser will insure to their full value with a reputable insurable any Goods and/or Deliverables wherein the risk but not the title has passed to it and indemnify the Company for loss, damage to, or destruction of any such Goods and/or Deliverables.

8.4.3 the Company agrees to permit the Purchaser to dispose of the Goods and/or Deliverables in the course of its business as agent of the Company and pass good title to the Goods and/or Deliverables to its customer being a bona fide purchaser of value without notice of the Company’s rights provided that such permission may be revoked at any time by notice by the Company and shall automatically and without notice be revoked upon the Purchaser committing an act of bankruptcy or upon the commencement of liquidation proceedings (compulsory or voluntary) of the Purchaser or the appointment or a receiver, administrator, administrative receiver or judicial administrator over any part of the Purchaser’s assets. In the event of such disposal the Purchaser shall account to the Company for the proceeds as fiduciary owner thereof and pending its so doing shall be bound to retain such proceeds on trust for the Company notwithstanding that the period or credit allowed to the Purchaser hereunder may not then have expired and the Company shall have the right to trace proceeds thereof but the Purchaser may retain therefrom any excess of such proceeds
over the amount outstanding under this contract; 
8.4.4 without prejudice to the provisions of Clause 8.1 above the Company consents to the use of Goods and/or Deliverables by the Purchaser in the assembly of some other goods incorporating the Goods and/or Deliverables (“the Assembled Goods”), notwithstanding that title in the Goods and/or Deliverables shall not have passed to the Purchaser, provided that such assembly does not result in the Goods and/or Deliverables being changed by any manufacturing process and the Goods and/or Deliverables may be recovered by disassembly of the Assembled Goods; and
8.4.5 in the event of the Goods and/or Deliverables becoming incorporated in Assembled Goods, the provisions contained in Clause 8.4.1 to 8.4.3 of this Clause shall apply to the storage, the retaking and the sale and proceeds of sale of the Assembled Goods but so that the Company’s rights shall not in any event be extended beyond the ownership of the Goods and/or Deliverables forming a part of the Assembled Goods and the right to retake the Goods and/or Deliverables (without liability for any loss to the Purchaser resulting from the disassembly of the Assembled Goods) and to so much of the proceeds of sale thereof as is attributable to the Goods and/or Deliverables.
8.5 If the Purchaser has not received payment for a disposal under Clause 8.4.3 above; the Purchaser shall, upon notice in writing by the Company, assign to the Company all its rights against its customer in respect of that disposal.
8.6 In the event that the Company exercises its rights of ownership so as to recover possession of the Goods and/or Deliverables or any of them the risk in the Goods and/or Deliverables retaken shall revert to the Company on possession being taken by the Company its servants or agents and the Company shall have full and unencumbered right to dispose of the Goods and/or Deliverables free of any rights whatsoever on the part of the Purchaser to the Goods and/or Deliverables or the proceeds of sale thereof.
 

9. Lien

The Company shall have a general lien against the Purchaser of any Goods of the Purchaser for the time being in the possession of the Company for amounts overdue under this Contract.

10.3 If the relevant Goods are found not to comply with the warranty set out in Clause 10.1, proved to the Company’s satisfaction to be the result of defective material or workmanship and not caused by fair wear and tear damage in transit or accident, the Company subject to Clause
10.4 below, shall, at its option, supply replacement Goods or where appropriate a new part free of charge and carriage paid and forward it to the Purchaser, provided always that the Purchaser has provided notice of the issue within the Warranty Period.  10.4 The aforesaid warranty shall not apply in respect of:
