Where the Buyer fails to collect the Goods or arrange for actual delivery of the Goods within 30 days and payment in advance has been made in whole or in part, the Company reserves the right to sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and deduct costs, loss of overheads and profit prior to accounting to the Buyer for any balance from such sale (if any).
4.6 The Buyer shall provide at its expense adequate and appropriate equipment and manual labour for loading and/or unloading the Goods for delivery.

4.8 The Company may deliver the Goods by separate instalments. Each separate instalment shall be invoiced and paid for in accordance with the provisions of the Contract.
4.9 Each instalment shall be a separate Contract and no cancellation or termination of any one Contract relating to an instalment shall entitle the Buyer to repudiate or cancel any other Contract or instalment.
4.10 The Company is able to deliver the Goods to the countries listed at (International Delivery Destinations). There are restrictions on some Goods for certain International Delivery Destinations. If Buyer’s order is to be sent to an International Delivery Destination, such order may be subject to additional import duties and taxes which are generally applied when the delivery reaches such destination.

6.1 Subject to clause 4.5, the Goods are at the risk of the Buyer from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the Company has received in full (in cash or cleared funds) all sums due to it in respect of the Goods and all other sums which are due to the Company from the Buyer on any Account.

(a) hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as the Company's bailee;
(b) store the Goods (at no cost to the Company) separately from all other goods of the Buyer or any third party in such a way that they remain readily identifiable as the Company's property;
(c) not remove, destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;

(e) deliver up the Goods to the Company on demand.
6.3 The Buyer may resell the Goods before ownership has passed to it solely on the basis that any sale shall be affected in the ordinary course of the Buyer's business at full market value and be a sale of the Company's property on the Buyer's own behalf and the Buyer shall deal as principal when making such a sale.
6.4 The Buyer shall keep the entire proceeds of sale of the Goods separate from any monies of the Buyer and any third party. The monies held shall be held on trust for the Company in a separate bank account for that purpose which shall remain in credit.

Where the Company is unable to determine whether any Goods are the goods in respect of which the Buyer's right to possession has terminated, the Buyer shall be deemed to have sold all goods of the kind sold by the Company to the Buyer in the order in which they were invoiced to the Buyer.

The Company shall use reasonable care to ensure that the prices of the Goods are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
7.2 It is possible that despite the Company’s reasonable efforts, some of the Goods on its site may be incorrectly priced. If the Company discovers an error in the price of the Goods subject to the Contract, the Company shall contact the Buyer to inform it of this error and give the Buyer an option of purchasing to Goods at the correct price or cancelling the order. If the Company is unable to contact the Buyer in respect of a pricing error (after using the contact details made available by the Buyer) the Company will treat the order as cancelled and notify the Buyer or such cancellation in writing. If the Company mistakenly accepts and processes the Buyer’s order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by the Buyer as a mispricing, the Company may cancel the Contract and refund the Buyer for any sums it has paid. .
7.3 The price for the Goods shall be exclusive of any value added tax and all costs, charges, taxes, levies and other fees in relation to packaging, loading, unloading, carriage and insurance, all of which (where possible) amounts the Buyer shall pay in addition when it is due to pay for the Goods or for which, in accordance with condition 4.10, the Buyer shall be responsible. The Company shall inform the Buyer during the order process of the delivery costs and charges. Subject to the Company’s minimum order value (details of which can be found on the site), the Company offers free United Kingdom mainland delivery. Due to variations in delivery prices depending on the volume and size of the Goods ordered the Company can only provide an estimate of the cost of delivery to any International Delivery Location on written request. The Company may arrange delivery to an address designated by the Buyer upon request (and for such further cost as agreed in writing between the parties).
7.4 The price for the Goods is based on the cost of materials, labour, transport, taxes (including value added tax) and duties and all other relevant costs at the date of the order. If the rate of value added tax changes between the date of the Contract and the date of delivery, the Company shall adjust the value added tax the Buyer pays unless the Buyer has already paid for the Goods in full before the change in value added tax takes effect.

8.4 The Company reserves the right to exercise its absolute discretion and cancel any Account, by immediate written notice.
8.5 The Company reserves the right to suspend any Account if it decides, for whatever reason, that it requires further security from the Buyer other than that already provided (if any) for the performance and discharge of the Buyer’s obligations under any Contract or for any other reason it considers reasonable. The Buyer agrees to use its best endeavours to ensure that any additional security required by the Company (including, but not limited to, a third party providing additional guarantee) is provided. The Company may decide to reinstate the Account if the Buyer provides the additional security required or meets any other conditions required to be satisfied by the Company.
8.6 If the Company exercises its right to cancel or suspend an Account, in accordance with conditions 8.4 and 8.5 respectively, all sums owed to the Company by the Buyer at the date of cancellation or suspension shall be payable on demand and the Company may decide to continue trading with the Buyer on the basis set out in condition 8.1.

The Buyer shall indemnify the Company against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including all 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 Buyer’s use of the Goods.
