5. Risk in the goods passes to the Buyer on delivery. Time for delivery is given as accurately as possible but is without engagement, and is in particular subject to extension in the event of delay due to war, strikes, lockouts, works breakdowns, delay in transport, shortage of raw material, government regulation, or requirements, or any other cause whatsoever (whether or not similar to those above mentioned) beyond our control. Should any such case prevent delivery within the reasonable time of the delivery date, we shall be entitled at our option and without liability, to cancel the contract wholly or in part by notice in writing.
6. The Buyer shall inspect the Goods immediately upon receipt and shall notify the Seller within 72 hours of delivery if the Goods are received in a damaged condition, or are not supplied as ordered. The Goods shall be deemed to be accepted by the Buyer if notification is not received within the 72 hour period specified. Any Goods in respect of which any claim of defect or damage is made, shall be preserved by the Buyer intact, together with original packing, at the Buyers risk and either a) be retained by the Buyer for a reasonable period to enable the Seller or its agent to inspect or Collect the Goods OR b) at the Sellers option, be returned by the Buyer to the Seller who will refund the delivery cost to the Buyer, if the Goods are proven to be defective. Any Goods received by the Buyer that are evidenced to have been damaged in transit from the Seller, shall be replaced or repaired by the Seller on a free of charge basis, provided the Buyer has notified the Carrier within 24 hours of receiving the carriage damaged materials.
7. In respect of any goods or part of goods supplied by us we will extend to you the benefit of such warranty from our suppliers as is available to us. In respect of any goods or part of goods supplied by us which are alleged to be defective we attempt to claim on foot of the warranty which is available to us but if such claim proves unsuccessful then no liability whatsoever is or will be accepted by us. If, while awaiting the outcome of our claim to our supplier, you wish to obtain alternative goods then said goods shall be paid for in full and a refund will be made if our supplier extends same to us on foot of our said claim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no liability whatsoever is or will be accepted in respect of any defect which is due to accident, or fair wear and tear, negligence, tampering, improper handling, improper use, improper operation, or improper storage or any other default on the part of any person.

10. (a) The risk in the goods passes to the Buyer upon delivery but equitable and beneficial ownership shall remain with us until full payment has been received (each order being considered as a whole) or until prior resale in which case our beneficial entitlement shall attach to the proceeds of resale or to the claim for such proceeds. In the event of us not being able to claim against the proceeds of such resale, we shall proceed for recovery of the goods against subsequent owners.
10. (b) Should the goods become constituents of or be convened into other products while subject to our equitable and beneficial ownership we shall have the equitable and beneficial ownership in such other products as if they were solely and simply the goods and accordingly sub-clause (a) shall as appropriate apply to such other products, and it shall be open to us to claim recovery of such products whether or not they remain in the possession of the buyer.
11. Time of payment is of the essence of all our sales, contracts and failure on your part to pay for goods delivered in accordance with the terms of the contract shall, without prejudice to any other rights which we may have, entitle us at our option to withhold further deliveries both in respect of the contract or series of contracts in question and any other contract for delivery of goods to you until such payment has been made, but you will in such event be liable to us for the costs of all materials and work in connection with manufactured or the partly manufactured articles acquired by us for the purpose of future deliveries to you less allowance of the value thereof as realised or as utilised for other purposes. All accounts are to be cleared within 30 days from the date of issue of invoice. Interest on overdue accounts is applied at a rate of 1% per month until the account is paid in full.
12. All goods are sold on the strict understanding that Invoice prices will be those ruling at date of dispatch.
13. Please note that a 15% handling charge will be made on all goods returned for credit against an order which has been correctly filled. In relation to "Special Orders" which are Non Stock Items that have been ordered to the Buyers specification, we will require 50% minimum deposit on these orders and an order number for same. This order cannot be cancelled or returned and will have to be paid for in full by the Buyer.
14. It is a condition of all sales that at any time upon or after the commission by the buyer of an act of bankruptcy, compulsory bankruptcy, liquidation by a creditor, or where the Buyer is a Limited Company, the commencement of a winding up by reason of insolvency or the appointment of a receiver, or any assignment for the benefit of creditors, the same may be cancelled by us wholly or in part by notice in writing without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to us.
15. All descriptions, drawings and other particulars furnished in catalogues, prices and other documents issued by us are as accurate as possible but being given for general information are not to be treated as binding unless this is specifically agreed by us in writing. Original equipment, manufacturer's names and part numbers are quoted for reference only and it is not intended that our replacement parts are used as original equipment.
16. Unless otherwise agreed, all packing cases and other containers will be charged for.
17. These conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Irish law and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish Courts.
