QUALITY AND DEFECTS 3.1 The Goods shall be of the best quality, material and workmanship, be without fault and conform in all respects with the Order and specification supplied or advised by BCS. 3.2 BCS’s rights under these conditions are in addition to the statutory conditions implied in favour of BCS by the Sale of Goods Act 1979. 3.3 If any of the Goods fail to comply with the provisions set out in condition 3 BCS shall be entitled to avail itself of any one or more remedies listed in condition 9.
4. INDEMNITY The Seller shall keep BCS indemnified in full against all direct, indirect or consequential liabilities, loss, damages, injury, costs and expenses (including legal and other professional fees) awarded against or incurred or paid by BCS as a result of or in connection with: (a) defective quality, materials or workmanship; (b) infringement or alleged infringement of any intellectual property rights caused by the use, manufacture or supply of the Goods; or (c) any claim made against BCS in respect of any liability, loss, damage, injury, cost or expense sustained by BCS’s employees or agents or by any customer or third party to the extent that such liability, loss, damage, injury, cost or expense was caused by, relates to or arises from the Goods as a consequence of a direct or indirect breach or negligent performance or failure or delay in performance of the terms of the Contract by the Seller.
5. DELIVERY 5.1 The Seller shall deliver or shall procure that the Goods are delivered, carriage paid, to BCS’s place of business or to such other place of delivery as is specified in the Order or as otherwise notified by BCS in writing prior to delivery. The Seller shall off-load the Goods at its own risk as directed by BCS. 5.2 The date for delivery shall be specified in the Order, or if no such date is specified then delivery shall take place within 28 days of the Order. Unless otherwise stipulated by BCS in the Order, deliveries shall only be accepted by BCS in normal business hours. 5.3 The Seller shall ensure that each delivery is accompanied by a delivery note which includes the Order number, date of Order, number of packages and contents and, in the case of part delivery, the outstanding balance remaining to be delivered. 5.4 Time for delivery shall be of the essence. 5.5 If the Goods are not delivered on the due date then, without prejudice to any other rights which it may have, BCS reserves the right to: (a) cancel the Contract in whole or in part; (b) refuse to accept any subsequent delivery of the Goods which the Seller attempts to make; (c) recover from the Seller any expenditure reasonably incurred by BCS in obtaining the Goods in substitution from another supplier; and (d) claim damages for any additional costs, loss or expenses incurred by BCS which are in any way attributable to the Seller's failure to deliver the Goods on the due date. 5.6 If the Seller requires BCS to return any packaging material the Seller must clearly state so on any delivery note delivered to BCS and BCS shall return any such packaging material at the Seller’s cost. 5.7 Where BCS agrees in writing to accept delivery by instalments the Contract shall be construed as a single contract in respect of each instalment. Nevertheless failure by the Seller to deliver any one instalment shall entitle BCS at its option to treat the whole Contract as repudiated. 5.8 If the Goods are delivered to BCS in excess of the quantities ordered, BCS shall not be bound to pay for the excess and any excess shall be and shall remain at the Seller's risk and shall be returnable at the Seller's expense. 5.9 BCS shall not be deemed to have accepted the Goods until it has had 14 days to inspect them following delivery. BCS shall also have the right to reject the Goods as though they had not been accepted for 14 days after any latent defect in the Goods has become apparent.
6. RISK/PROPERTY The Goods shall remain at the Seller’s risk until delivery to BCS is complete when ownership of the Goods shall pass to BCS.

No variation in the price or extra charges shall be accepted by BCS. 7.2 The Seller shall invoice BCS upon despatch of the Goods to BCS. BCS shall pay the price of the Goods within 30 days of delivery of the Goods to BCS, but time for payment shall not be of the essence of the Contract. 7.3 Without prejudice to any other right or remedy, BCS reserves the right to set off any amount owing at any time from the Seller to BCS against any amount payable by BCS to the Seller under the Contract. 7.4 If any sum under the Contract is not paid when due then, without prejudice to the parties' other rights under the Contract, that sum shall bear interest from the due date until payment is made in full at 2% per annum over Lloyds Banking Group’s base rate from time to time.

The conditions which expressly or impliedly have effect after termination shall continue to be enforceable notwithstanding termination.
9. REMEDIES Without prejudice to any other right or remedy which BCS may have, if any Goods are not supplied in accordance with, or the Seller fails to comply with, any of the terms of the Contract, BCS shall be entitled to avail itself of any one or more of the following remedies at its discretion, whether or not any part of the Goods have been accepted by BCS: (a) to rescind the Order; (b) to reject the Goods (in whole or in part) and return them to the Seller at the Seller’s risk and cost on the basis that a full refund for the Goods so returned shall be paid immediately by the Seller; (c) at BCS’s option to give the Seller the opportunity at the Seller's expense either to remedy any defect in the Goods or to supply replacement Goods and carry out any other necessary work to ensure that the terms of the Contract are fulfilled; (d) to refuse to accept any further deliveries of the Goods but without any liability to the Seller; (e) to carry out at the Seller's expense any work necessary to make the Goods comply with the Contract; and (f) to claim such damages as may have been sustained in consequence of the Seller's breach or breaches of the Contract.
10. GENERAL 10.1 A reference to a law is a reference to it as it is in force for the time being taking account of any amendment, extension, application or re-enactment and includes any subordinate legislation for the time being in force made under it. 10.2 Condition headings do not affect the interpretation of these conditions. 10.3 BCS reserves the right to defer the date of delivery or payment or to cancel the Contract or reduce the volume of the Goods ordered if it is prevented from or delayed in the carrying on of its business due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control including, without limitation, acts of God, governmental actions, war or national emergency, acts of terrorism, protests, riot, civil commotion, fire, explosion, flood, epidemic, lock-outs, strikes or other labour disputes (whether or not relating to either party's workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers. 10.4 The Seller shall not be entitled to assign the Contract or any part of it without the prior written consent of BCS.

Any waiver by BCS of any breach of, or any default under, any provision of the Contract by the Seller shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default and shall in no way affect the other terms of the Contract. 10.8 The parties to the Contract do not intend that any term of the Contract shall be enforceable by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by any person that is not a party to it. 10.9 This Contract and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law, and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
