incurred by the Supplier in connection with any claim
made against the Supplier for actual or alleged
infringement of a third party's intellectual property
rights arising out of or in connection with the
Supplier's use of the Specification. This clause 3.2 will
survive termination of the Contract.

such other value threshold as the Supplier may set
from time to time for the purpose of this clause 4.2.1;

unloading of the Goods at the Delivery Location.

Force Majeure Event or the Customer's failure to
provide the Supplier with adequate delivery instructions
or any other instructions that are relevant to the
supply of the Goods.
4.6 If the Supplier fails to deliver the Goods, its
liability will be limited to the costs and expenses
incurred by the Customer in obtaining replacement
goods of similar description and quality in the
cheapest market available, less the price of the
Goods. The Supplier will have no liability for any
failure to deliver the Goods to the extent that such
failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the

adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions
that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.

have been completed at 9.00 am on the third
Business Day after the day on which the Supplier

delivery takes place, and charge the Customer for all
related costs and expenses (including insurance).

the Supplier notified the Customer that the Goods
were ready for delivery the Customer has not
accepted actual delivery of them, the Supplier may
resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods
and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling
costs, charge the Customer for any shortfall below
the price of the Goods.
4.9 The Supplier may deliver the Goods by
instalments, which will be invoiced and paid for
separately. Each instalment will constitute a separate
contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an
instalment will not entitle the Customer to cancel any
other instalment.

Goods' failure to comply with the warranty set out in
clause 5.2 if:
5.4.1 the Customer fails to inform the Supplier
promptly and in event within 7 days of becoming
aware of such failure unless the defect would have
been apparent from a reasonable external inspection
in which case paragraph 5.3 will apply with regard to
the time for notification;
5.4.2 the Customer makes any further use of
such Goods after giving notice in accordance with
clause 5.3;
5.4.3 the defect arises because the Customer
failed to follow the Supplier's oral or written
instructions as to the storage, commissioning,
installation, use and maintenance of the Goods or (if
