The Seller shall be entitled to recover payment for the Goods notwithstanding that ownership of any of the Goods has not passed from the Seller. The Buyer grants the Seller, its agents and employees an irrevocable licence at any time to enter any premises or vessel where the Goods are or may be stored in order to inspect them, or, where the Buyer’s right to possession has terminated, to recover them. Where the Seller is unable to determine whether any Goods are the Goods in respect of which the Buyer’s right to possession has terminated, the Buyer shall be deemed to have sold all Goods of the kind sold by the Seller to the Buyer in the order in which they were invoiced to the Buyer. On termination of the Contract, howsoever caused, the Seller’s (but not the Buyer’s) rights contained in this clause 8 shall remain in effect.

Without prejudice to the provisions of clause 8 and subject to clause 12, the Seller shall not in any case be liable for loss or damage to Goods in transit unless:  a) such loss or damage is caused by the Seller’s negligence; and the carriers and the Seller are notified thereof in writing, in the case of damage or shortage, within three days of delivery or, in the case of non-delivery, within a reasonable time after the date upon which the Goods would have been delivered in the normal course of events; and  b) in the case of damage to Goods, those Goods are returned to the Seller, carriage paid, for inspection within seven days of delivery.

The Buyer acknowledges that all Intellectual Property Rights in the Goods sold under these terms and conditions and any associated documentation (and any modifications thereof) are, as between the Buyer and the Seller, vested, and shall remain vested, in the Seller. The Buyer undertakes to execute any deeds and documents and do anything the Seller may require to vest all such Intellectual Property Rights in the Seller or its nominees. The Buyer may not use the Intellectual Property Rights in the Goods supplied for any purpose other than that which is contemplated under these terms and conditions. Any licence that the Seller may grant to the Buyer to use any Proprietary Software Materials shall not be governed by these terms and conditions. The Buyer shall not any time without the Seller’s previous written consent: exhibit any Goods sold by the Seller at any exhibition take part in or assist at or support or be concerned in any such exhibition of such Goods or any competition, or competitive trials of or relating to such Goods; or publish or distribute or cause or assist in the publication or distribution of any literature relating to any such exhibition of such Goods or competitive trials or the result thereof.

If, after the receipt of an order for Goods and before their delivery, improvements are made in their design, the Seller may, on giving notice to the Buyer, incorporate such improvements in those Goods sold, provided that: the performance and quality of the altered Goods are at least as high as those of the Goods ordered; and no price variation is made except with the Buyer’s consent; and delivery is not unreasonably delayed. If, after the receipt of an order for Goods and/or Service Work and before their delivery, the Buyer gives notice to the Seller of a change in the scope of the order, the Seller may accommodate such changes, subject to the following: where the changes affect the specification of the Goods or Service Work ordered, and are not deemed material by the Seller, it shall accept the changes and notify the Buyer of any consequential changes to the price and delivery dates as soon as practicable after receipt of the Buyer’s notification; where any changes are deemed material (for example, the order includes charts printed in the Seller’s premises by Admiralty Print-on-Demand technology, and said charts have already been printed), the Seller reserves the right to apply a cancellation charge, which will be calculated on a case-by-case basis. Such a cancellation charge will be calculated on the basis of an assessment of: the work done, up to the point of cancellation, by the Seller, its suppliers and contractors; the costs of materials purchased for the contract; and the cancellation costs charged to the Seller by its suppliers and contractors and any administrative costs in closing and cancelling the contract, including any associated financing costs.

Subject to the provisions of clauses 7 and 12c) the Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer for direct or indirect loss (including, but not limited to, any loss of profits for whatever reason) or damage to persons or property, howsoever arising from the sale, use, installation or servicing of the Goods or any defect therein. Any software and/or digital data supplied by the Seller is done so ‘as is’ and shall be used by the Buyer at its own risk.  The Buyer shall be responsible for the proper installation, use and update of the software and/or digital data and the Seller accepts no liability resulting from the incorrect installation, use, update and protection thereof; this includes, but is not limited to any issues arising as a result of the following: Software or hardware viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, malware and adware. Data corruption. Third party software that may cause Seller supplied software and/or digital data not to function correctly. Maintenance of any necessary licenses. Nothing in these terms and conditions limits the Seller’s liability for death or personal injury resulting from negligence where the Seller is prevented by statute from excluding or restricting its liability.

Subject to clause 13 c), neither of the parties shall be liable to the other for any delay or non-performance of its obligations under these terms and conditions arising from any cause or causes beyond its reasonable control including any of the following: act of God, governmental act, war, fire, flood, explosion, civil commotion or industrial dispute of a third party, armed hostilities, act of terrorism, revolution, blockade, embargo, strike, lock-out, sit-in, industrial or trade dispute, adverse weather, accident to (or breakdown of) plant or machinery, shortage of any material, labour, transport, electricity or other supply, or regulatory intervention. Subject to the party so delaying promptly notifying the other party in writing of the cause and the likely duration of the delay and provided that the party shall use reasonable endeavours to limit the effect of such event on the other party, the performance of the delaying party’s obligations to the extent affected by the delay shall be suspended during the period that the cause persists, provided that if an agreement is not reached to extend the term for performance of the delaying party’s obligations the non-delaying party may by written notice terminate any contract of sale to which these terms and conditions relate. Nothing in this clause shall affect the Buyer’s obligation to make payments under clause 4.

Where, at the Buyer’s request, Goods are held in storage, the amount due for those Goods shall be invoiced on the date when they would otherwise have been delivered and the Seller accepts no liability for such Goods after the date of invoice. Storage fees will be charged for Goods held for more than one calendar month after such date.

To the extent that delivery of the Goods and services may be subject to requirements to obtain licences, permits and permissions, the Buyer undertakes to obtain any such licences, permits and permissions, applicable to the import, installation and operation of the Goods, and to provide all necessary assistance, at his own cost and expense, to the Seller, in respect of any export or transit licence, permits and permissions. The Seller shall not be liable for any delay or failure to obtain any such necessary licences, permits or permissions as a result of any act or omission of the Buyer.

If the sale of the Goods to the Buyer is a consumer transaction then nothing in these terms and conditions shall affect the Buyer’s statutory rights.

Except as expressly stated in these terms and conditions, a person who is not a party to these terms and conditions may not enforce any of its terms under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.

The supply of Goods and Services shall be governed and construed according to the laws of Northern Ireland and any question of interpretation or dispute shall be settled in the Courts of Northern Ireland or, at the option of the Seller, by arbitration in Northern Ireland by an Arbitrator appointed by the Seller in accordance with the provisions of the Arbitration Act 1996 or any statutory re-enactment or modification thereof.
