Any deferral of the programme may incur additional charges and be subject to revised prices.
5.6. All order cancellations must be made in writing stating the original order reference number and date.

Until title in the Goods has passed to the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as the Company’s bailee, store the Goods (at no cost to the Company) separately from all other goods and in such a way to enable them to be identified as the property of the Company; and keep the Goods fully insured to their full market value.
6.4.

or other products are or may be stored with or without vehicles during normal business hours.
6.5. The Purchaser may resell the Goods acting always as principal and not as agent of the Company provided that any sale shall be effected in the ordinary course of the Purchaser’s business at full market value and that the Purchaser shall hold such part of the proceeds of sale or otherwise as represent the amount owed by the Purchaser to the Company, whether tangible or intangible, including insurance proceeds, separate from any monies or property of the Purchaser and any third parties, and in a fiduciary capacity on behalf of the Company, until payment has been received in full as set out
at Condition 7.2.
6.6. On termination of the Contract, howsoever arising, the Company’s (but not the Purchaser’s) rights contained in this Condition shall remain in full effect.
