Although the Seller will try to make sure that all colours shown in any samples, photographs, images or drawings of any kind on its website or in any of its brochures, designs or other publications or documents provided by or for the Seller (in each case “Published Colours”) are accurate, the Seller cannot warrant, represent or guarantee that the Published Colour that the Buyer sees accurately portrays the true shade or texture of any colour of the Products to be ordered, ordered or delivered. Published Colours may not be accurate due to a number of factors (for example, but not limited to, how a Published Colour appears may be affected by natural product variations such as lighting, ink used in printing and materials on which the printing is done (and the type, condition or settings of equipment used to view digital content online). The Buyer therefore agrees to treat all Published Colours as being general guidance and information only and not to be relied upon to be the same as the shading or texture of the colour of actual ordered Products that are delivered.
2.6 Shapes, images or drawings of any kind for any object shown on the Seller’s website or in any of its brochures, designs or other publications or documents provided by or for the Seller, may not be to an exact size or scale.

4.2 Title to Products (the “RoT Products”) shall not pass to the Buyer until the earlier of:
4.2.1 the Seller receiving payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for:
(a) the invoices concerning the RoT Products; and
(b) all other sums that are or that become due to the Seller from the Buyer for sales of other Products or on any account before or at the time of the payment for the RoT Products becomes due; or
4.2.2 the Buyer resells those Products under Condition 4.4.

4.3.1 hold the RoT Products on a fiduciary basis as the Seller’s bailee;

4.3.3 not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the RoT Products;
4.3.4 maintain the RoT Products in satisfactory condition and keep them insured on the Seller's behalf for their full price against all risks with an insurer that is reasonably acceptable to the Seller.

On request the Buyer shall allow the Seller to inspect the RoT Products and the insurance policy; and
4.3.5 give the Seller such information as the Seller may reasonably require from time to time relating to:
(a) the RoT Products; and
(b) the ongoing financial position of the Buyer.
4.4 Subject to clause 4.5, the Buyer may resell or use Products in the ordinary course of its business (but not otherwise) before the Seller receives payment for the RoT Products. However, if the Buyer resells the RoT Products before that time:
4.4.1 it does so as principal and not as the Seller's agent; and
4.4.2 title to those Products shall pass from the Seller to the Buyer immediately before the time at which resale by the Buyer occurs; and
4.4.3 as a separate and independent obligation to the above terms of Condition 4.4. the Buyer shall account to the Seller for the proceeds of sale or otherwise of the RoT Products, whether tangible or intangible, including insurance proceeds, on trust for the Seller and separate from any moneys or property of the Buyer and third parties and, in the course of tangible proceeds, properly stored, protected and insured.
4.5 At any time before title to the RoT Products passes to the Buyer, the Seller may (without prejudice to its other rights and remedies):
4.5.1 by notice in writing, terminate the Seller's right under Condition 4.4 to resell the RoT Products or use them in the ordinary course of its business; and
4.5.2 require the Buyer to deliver up all the RoT Products in its possession that have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product and if the Buyer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Buyer or of any third party where the RoT Products are stored in order to recover them.
4.6 The Buyer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Products which remain the property of the Seller, but if the Buyer does so all moneys owing by the Buyer to the Seller (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Seller) forthwith become due and payable.
4.7 The Buyer shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any deduction or withholding by way of set-off or otherwise except where a deduction or withholding is mandatory under the law and (in any event) the Buyer shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against Seller in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part.

4.10 All amounts invoiced by the Seller must be paid in full within 30 days of the invoice date (unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Buyer and the Seller). If an invoice becomes overdue then, without prejudice to any other rights and remedies, the Seller has the right to: (i) reduce or withdraw any credit limit, and/or (ii) charge interest at 4% above the Bank of England base rate for the first 10 days that an amount is overdue and then 8% above the Bank of England base rate thereafter – in each case with interest accruing daily and being compounded on the last calendar day of each month after the month in which the amount becomes overdue. Collection will be passed to our third party debt recovery specialists where a charge of 15% plus VAT will be incurred on the unpaid amount.
4.11An invoice from the Seller for which a good faith written query/dispute notice is not received by the Supplier within 5 days of the Buyer receiving the invoice will be treated as undisputed. If an invoice query/dispute is received by the Seller within the said 5 days then the invoice must still be paid in full within the required payment period, but the Seller will then promptly refund the extent of the invoice query/dispute that is agreed or resolved in favour of the Buyer.
5.1 Risk in the Products shall pass to Buyer (a) in the case of Products to be collected from the Seller’s premises, at the time when the Seller notifies the Buyer that the Products are available for collection; or (b) in the case of Products to be delivered otherwise than at the Seller’s premises, at the time of delivery or, if the Buyer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Products, the time when the Seller has tendered the Products for delivery. Upon risk passing the Seller shall bear no further responsibility for damage or deterioration to (or loss of) the Products.
5.2 All times of delivery (and other performance of obligations by the Seller) stated by Seller are approximate, and the time of delivery (or any other performance of obligations by the Seller) is not of the essence. It is a foregone conclusion that the Buyer has met any obligations in relations to the Contract and has provided all other instructions to Seller that are relevant to the supply of the Products.
5.3 In cases where Seller has not delivered before the approximate delivery time, the Buyer is not entitled to cancel the purchase, but is entitled to set a reasonable closing date by agreement with the Seller, before which delivery must take place. The closing date period cannot be shorter than 14 days. On request Seller has to state the reason for the delay and if possible the time when the delivery is expected to take place. This Condition 5.3 applies subject to Condition 5.2.
5.4 The Buyer has to allow for partial delivery and/or delivery by instalments.
5.5 Seller shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Products to the extent that such failure is caused by: (i) the Buyer’s failure to provide Seller with any instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Products, (ii) the delivery location not being safe for delivery or being subject to any obstruction or hindrance for delivery, (iii) the Buyer refusing to take delivery or any other act or omission by or for the Buyer (or any person other than the Seller or an agent of the Seller), or (iv) if Condition 8.1 applies (force majeure event).
5.6 Without limiting its other rights or remedies, the Seller may suspend provision of the Products under the Contract or any other contract between the Buyer and the Seller if the Buyer is subject to any insolvency situation or suspends or ceases to carry on all or substantially the whole of its business or its financial position deteriorates that its capability to fulfil its obligations to pay has been placed in jeopardy (or Seller reasonably believes that such an event is about to happen) or if the Buyer fails to pay (or is considered to be at risk of not paying) any amount due under this Contract on the due date for payment.
5.7 The Buyer cannot reject delivery of Products if the quantity of Products delivered are no more than 10% above or below Ordered quantities.
