Notwithstanding anything which may be contained in any purchase order or other documents of the Purchaser, goods are supplied subject to these conditions alone. No variations of them will apply unless expressly agreed by both parties in writing and signed on their behalf.
All quotations and estimates, issued by Kedington are, unless otherwise agreed, based on current cost of production (material, hours and wages) and are subject to amendment on or after acceptance to meet any recognised rise or fall in costs.
The Seller shall be deemed to have accepted an order only after the issuing of an official acknowledgement. A telephone order must be followed by the Purchaser’s official written order, which must state that it is confirmation of the telephone order. Failure to stipulate such confirmation details which then results in duplications will give the Seller the right to invoice both

If in the opinion of the Seller the credit worthiness of the Purchaser comes into doubt prior to delivery, the Seller may require full or partial payment of the price prior to delivery. In such circumstances the Seller reserves the right to withhold or cancel the deliveries and revoke any credit extended to the Purchaser. The Purchaser shall indemnify the Seller for any loss caused by reason of such withholding or cancellation of delivery. If the Purchaser fails to make any payment on the due date then without prejudice to any of the Seller’s other rights the Seller may: Withhold or cancel delivery of any goods due to the Purchaser and or appropriate any payment made by the Purchaser to such of the goods supplied under this or any other contact with the Seller as the Seller shall in sole discretion think fit.

Notwithstanding that property or title in goods has not passed to the Purchaser the Company shall be entitled at any time to maintain an action against the Purchaser for the price of goods or services supplied by the Company to the Purchaser. Pending payment of the full price of the goods the Purchaser should at all times keep the goods comprehensively insured against loss or damage by accident, fire, theft and other risks usually covered by insurance in the type of business for which the goods have been supplied in an amount at least equal to the balance of the price for the same from time remaining outstanding.

The Seller must receive written notice of any delivery discrepancy defects or damage of goods within 2 working days of delivery of the goods to the Purchaser’s designated address.

The Purchaser shall not remove, alter, deface or tamper with any reference or trademarks, names or numbers of identification affixed to goods or allow anyone else to do so.
