RETENSION OF TITLE:
If the customer becomes subject to insolvency and the goods have not been paid for in full the supplier may take the Deliverables back and if necessary enter the customers premises to do so, or to inspect and/or label the deliverables as to identify them clearly.
Complaints or claims will not be entertained if lodged by the Customer seven days after receipt of goods by him, or if related to the transport of the goods unless within such time as will enable the Company to comply with the time limit and procedure of the Railway Companies or other carriers by whom the goods were transported. The return of goods will not be accepted unless the Company or its representative shall first have had the opportunity of examining same.
LIMITATION OF COMPANY’S LIABILITY:
(1) Any express or implied statement condition or warranty, statutory or otherwise, not stated herein is hereby excluded and deemed to be inconsistent herewith and no responsibility is accepted by the Company for any damages or loss arising directly or indirectly by reason of any failure of the goods to comply with specification.
(2) The liability of the Company for defective goods supplied by it or faulty workmanship in respect of which a valid claim has been made shall be limited to replacement of the defective products or at the Company’s option to reimbursement of the price paid by the Customer for those goods.
The Customer will be responsible for obtaining all necessary consents to the reproduction by the Company of any work or other subject matter in connection with this transaction whether dealt with by the Copyright Act 1988 or not and will indemnify the Company from all claims and liability in any way arising out
of or relating to such reproduction by the Company.
No responsibility will be accepted for defective prints sent to the Company as they should be inspected by the Customer beforehand. Any sub-standard printing noticed during our final inspection will be packed separately and charged for. The Company cannot accept any responsibility whatsoever for bad
printing which passes unnoticed through its inspection.
Prices are subject to revision in the event of any increase in costs incurred by the Company between the date of confirmation of order and the date of delivery to the Customer, or the date when the goods otherwise become invoiceable, whichever is the earlier.
Customer’s property when supplied will be held at Customer’s risk. Every care will be taken to secure the best results where materials are supplied by the Customer, but responsibility will not be accepted for imperfect work caused by defects in, or unsuitability of, materials so supplied.
