Where payment is not made within the terms of credit offered the interest shall be payable from the date of the invoice.
The Customer agrees that title in the Goods supplied by the Company shall remain with the Company until such time as payment in full has been received and acknowledged by the Company notwithstanding the earlier delivery of the Goods to the Customer. The Customer agrees that where payment for the Goods has not been made within 30 days of the delivery date, the Company shall be entitled at any time thereafter to require the immediate return of the Goods and if this requirement is not immediately complied with the Company, its servants or agents shall be entitled at any time thereafter without further notice to retake possession of the whole or any part of the Goods (and for that purpose shall be entitled to enter upon any premises occupied by the Customer where the Goods are retained and to disconnect or sever the Goods from anything to which they are attached without liability for any damage thereby incurred) These rights are without prejudice to any other remedy that may be available to the Company.
Where title to the Goods has not yet vested in the Customer, and such Goods are stored on the property of the Customer, the Customer warrants that adequate insurance cover is in place to fully protect the interest of the Company in the Goods.
In the event of non-availability of Goods ordered by the Customer and agreed to be delivered by the Company, the Company reserves the right to provide Goods of a similar quality, price and specification in satisfaction of the order, without prior notification to the Customer.
