5 Delivery of the Goods and Risk

5.1 Delivery of the Goods shall take place on collection by the Buyer at the Seller’s premises.
5.2 Where the Seller has agreed to deliver the Goods to the Buyer, any delivery date given is an estimate only. Goods are delivered by third party carriers over whom the Seller has no control and therefore the Seller shall not be liable for any loss, damage or expense suffered by the Buyer or any other party by reason of any alleged delay in delivery. The Buyer shall make all arrangements to take delivery of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery. The Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer for late delivery.
5.3 Risk shall pass on delivery or collection of the Goods.
5.4 It is the responsibility of the Buyer to examine the Goods on receipt. The Buyer shall be deemed to have accepted the Goods 48 hours after collection or delivery to the Buyer (as applicable).

5.6.3 goods opened or used with Buyer price ticket, accordingly the Seller shall not provide a refund for such items.

6 Title

6.1 Title shall pass on collection (or delivery) of the Goods unless any sums are unpaid on any account the Buyer has with the Seller and, in such case, title shall remain with the Seller until the Buyer has paid all outstanding amounts on any account with the Seller and no other sums are due from the Buyer to the Seller.
6.2 Until the title to the Goods passes to the Buyer, the Buyer shall hold the Goods and each of them on a fiduciary basis as a custodier/bailee for the Seller. The Buyer shall store the Goods separately from all other Goods in its possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as the property of the Seller. The Buyer shall not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods. The Buyer shall maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured on the Seller’s behalf for their full price against all risks to the reasonable satisfaction of the Seller. On request the Buyer shall produce the policy of insurance to the Seller.
6.3 Until such time as title to the Goods passes from the Seller to the Buyer, the Buyer shall, upon request, deliver up such Goods as have not ceased to be in existence or resold, to the Seller. If the Buyer fails to do so, the Seller may enter upon any premises owned or occupied or controlled by the Buyer where the Goods are situated and repossess the Goods.
6.4 Notwithstanding that, the Goods remain the property of the Seller; the Buyer may sell the Goods in the ordinary course of the Buyer’s business at full market value for the account of the Seller. Until property in the Goods passes from the Seller, the entire proceeds of sale or otherwise of the Goods shall be held on trust for the Seller.

7 Remedies of Buyer

7.1 If the Buyer rejects any Goods, the Buyer shall have no further rights whatever in respect of the supply to the Buyer of such Goods or the failure by the Seller to supply Goods which conform to the contract of sale.
7.2 The Seller shall be entitled in its absolute discretion to refund the price of defective Goods (in the event that such price has already been paid) if the Buyer notifies the Seller in writing of a defect in the Goods within 21 days of collection/delivery of the Goods and if the Goods are returned undamaged to the Seller (at the cost of the Buyer).
