7. TITLE TO GOODS
No legal or equitable title in the Goods shall pass to the Customer until payment in full (including any interest for late payment) has been made by the Customer to Multifid or as it may direct.

(i) hold the Goods as bailee for Multifid and keep the Goods properly stored, protected and insured as Multifid ’s property; and
(ii) acknowledge that that Goods are returnable at the will of Multifid and without prior demand by Multifid; and

(iv) authorise Multifid to enter upon the premises in which the Goods are stored for the purpose of taking possession of them; and
(v) not purport to sell, transfer, assign or otherwise dispose of any right, title or interest in the Goods to any other person, provided always that if in the ordinary course of the Customer's business, the Customer deals with the Goods and passes title to a purchaser of the Goods, the Customer must hold a proportion of any payment (the "relevant proportion") representing the price of the Goods payable to the Customer for such Goods on trust for Multifid. The Customer expressly acknowledges that the relevant proportion must be equal to the dollar value of the price of the Goods that is payable to Multifid, and that if the Customer receives part payment (not exceeding the relevant proportion) for those Goods, it does so as payment first of the relevant proportion; and

8. DELIVERY AND RISK
Unless Multifid expressly agrees in writing to the contrary, Goods are sold on an Ex Works basis. Accordingly, risk of damage to the Goods shall pass to the Customer at the time when Multifid notifies the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection. 5
If Multifid agrees to arrange carriage of the Goods for the Customer, it will only do so on the Customer’s behalf, and delivery will occur and risk will pass when the Goods are made available to the carrier. The Customer shall pay Multifid any costs or charges incurred for the carriage of the Goods.
If Multifid agrees not to deliver the goods on an EX-WORKS basis, but has agreed to deliver them to premises nominated by the Customer, delivery will occur and risk will pass to the Customer when the Goods are left at the premises nominated by the Customer and (without limiting any other means) the execution of an acknowledgment of delivery by a person apparently in the employ of an occupier of those premises will be conclusive evidence of delivery.
Where Multifid arranges carriage for the Goods to the Customer, the Customer must notify Multifid in writing of all claims in respect of loss of or damage to the Goods in transit within 5 Business Days of delivery.
The Customer acknowledges that any agreed or stated period for delivery of the Goods is an estimate only. The Customer further acknowledges and agrees that the Customer shall not be relieved of any obligation to accept the Goods by reason of any delay in delivery regardless of the reason for delay.
If Multifid determines that it is or may be unable to deliver the Goods within a reasonable time or at all, Multifid may in its sole discretion terminate this Agreement and Multifid shall not be liable to the Customer for any damage, loss or expense whatsoever arising out of such termination.
Multifid reserves the right to deliver the Goods by instalments and to invoice the Customer for each instalment of Goods delivered where, in the opinion of Multifid, it is reasonable to do so. Failure by the Customer to pay for any instalments shall entitle Multifid to withhold delivery of any remaining Goods.
If the Customer is unable or fails to accept delivery of any Goods, then without limiting Multifid’s rights in any way, Multifid may deliver those Goods to a place of storage nominated by the Customer or failing nomination, to a place determined by Multifid. Such action shall be deemed to be delivery to the Customer. The Customer shall be liable for all costs, charges and expense incurred by Multifid as a consequence of the delay (including storage and standby costs).
9. WARRANTIES AND LIABILITIES
Subject to the conditions set out below and unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by Multifid, Multifid warrants that the Goods will correspond in all material respects with their written specifications at the time of delivery, and will be free from material defects in design, manufacture, materials and workmanship during the Warranty Period. Unless otherwise stated by Multifid, the Warranty Period shall be twelve (12) months from the date of delivery or deemed delivery, to the Customer.
If the Customer notifies Multifid of a material non-compliance with those specifications, or a material defect in the design, manufacture, construction, materials or workmanship (a “Defect”) during the Warranty Period, Multifid will repair that Defect or replace the Defective Goods (or Defective component of the Goods) at its own cost and expense, or at its option pay the cost of the repairing or replacing it. The above warranty is a “return to base” warranty, and the Customer must return the Goods at its own expense to Multifid ’s nominated premises for assessment.
The above warranty is given by Multifid subject to the following conditions:
(i) to the maximum extent permitted by law:
Multifid shall not be liable in respect of any defect in the Goods arising from any modification specifically requested by the Customer; and
Multifid has no obligation to the Customer in respect of fitness of any Goods for a particular purpose;
(ii) Multifid shall be under no liability in respect of any claim arising from accidental damage, willful damage, negligence, use in working or operating conditions outside of operating specifications, failure to follow the SENSEAR instructions (whether oral or in writing), misuse or alteration or repair of the Goods without Multifids/SENSEAR approval, or wear and tear;
(iii) the above warranty does not extend to any parts or equipment not manufactured by SENSEAR (in respect of which the Customer shall only be entitled to the benefit of any such warranty or guarantee as is given by the manufacturer to SENSEAR); and
(iv) Neither Multifid or SENSEAR shall be under no liability under the above warranty if the total price for the Goods has not been paid by the due date for payment;
except for the express warranties set out in these Terms, to the extent permitted by the law, Multifid and SENSEAR expressly excludes all conditions and warranties. Where legislation implies any condition or warranty (a “non-excludable term”), and that legislation avoids or prohibits provisions in a contract excluding, or modifying the application or exercise of or liability under such a non-excludable term, that non-excludable term is deemed to be included in these Terms. However, Multifid and SENSEAR’s liability for any breach of that non-excludable term is limited, at Multifid and SENSEAR’s option, to the repair or replacement of the Goods, the supply of equivalent goods or services, or paying the cost of replacing the Goods or of supplying equivalent goods or services.
Multifid and SENSEAR are not liable in respect of any indirect, punitive, special, incidental or consequential damage in connection with or arising out of a breach of these Terms (including for loss of profits, use, data, or other economic advantage) which may be suffered or incurred or which may arise in connection with any Goods supplied pursuant to these Terms, or in respect of a failure or omission on the part of Multifid or SENSEAR to comply with its obligations under these Terms, whether caused by the negligence of both Multifid, SENSEAR, or its employees, agents or otherwise.
Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, the entire liability of Multifid under or in connection with any Agreement shall not, under any circumstances, exceed the invoiced value of the Goods.
10. FORCE MAJEURE
Multifid or SENSEAR will not be liable for any delay or any breach or default under this Agreement in circumstances where such delay, breach or default is caused by any matter or thing beyond Multifid or SENSEAR's reasonable control, whether or not Multifid or SENSEAR may have been able to foresee the occurrence of such matter or thing and taken steps to avoid any of its consequences.
11. RETURNS / CLAIMS
