No addition or variation shall apply unless specifically agreed in writing by the parties.
b. No order shall be binding on the Company unless and until accepted or confirmed in writing by the Company. The Company reserves the right (without prejudice to any other remedy) to cancel any uncompleted order or to suspend delivery in the event of any of the Customer’s commitments to the Company not being met.
c. No order which has been accepted by the Company may be cancelled by the Customer except with the agreement in writing of the Company and on terms that the Customer shall indemnify the Company in full against all losses (including loss of profit, loss of business and depletion of goodwill) costs, damages, charges and expenses incurred by the Company as a result of cancellation.
a. While the Company will use its reasonable endeavours to comply with any dates specified by the Company for the delivery of the Goods, such dates are approximate only and may not be made of the essence by notice. If no dates are specified, delivery will be within a reasonable time. Subject to the other provisions of these terms and conditions, the Company will not be liable for any loss (including loss of profit), costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Goods (even if caused by the Company’s negligence).
b. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Company’s delivery terms are ex works (Incoterms 2010).
c. The Goods shall be at the sole risk of the Customer from the time of delivery to the Customer or to his agent or carrier (including any such agent or carrier instructed by the Company acting strictly on behalf of the Customer). In the event of loss or damage in transit, no claim will be accepted, unless the Company is advised in writing within five days of delivery. Any damage to the Goods in transit or claims for shortage should be notified to the carrier and the Company immediately following receipt at the customer’s premises, or port of entry as the case may be.
i) Legal title and property in and beneficial ownership of the Goods shall not pass to the Customer (notwithstanding delivery of such Goods to the Customer) until the Customer has paid both the full price of such Goods and all other sums whatsoever due to the Company.

v) The Customer may in the ordinary course of business mix the Goods with other objects or convert the Goods into other objects whether by the process of manufacture or otherwise.

vii) The Company shall be entitled to recover payment for the Goods that ownership of any of the Goods has not passed to the Customer.
e. The Company reserves the right to deliver the Goods in instalments, in which case the Contract shall be construed as a separate contract in respect of each instalment. Failure to deliver any instalment shall not entitle the Customer to treat the Contract as repudiated.
The Company will at the request of Export Customers, arrange marine insurance of the Goods and report shipment of the Goods to the insurers but shall not be liable for any negligence or otherwise for any error in complying with such request or omission to do so.
The price shall be the price in force at the time of delivery. The Company reserves the right to apply a minimum charge on small value orders.
