Any deliveries suspended shall be taken by Buyers at the rate specified in the Contract, as soon as it is possible to resume, but resumed deliveries shall be liable to suspension on the same grounds as the deliveries originally stipulated in the Contract.

2. Each delivery shall be deemed to be a separate Contract and the failure to make delivery of any one instalment shall not invalidate the Contract nor entitle the Purchaser to be discharged.

3.

5. Any Delivery Order issued shall be lodged with the wharf, warehouse, or other place where the goods are lying within the free rent period mentioned thereon, and failure to lodge Delivery Order within the period specified shall be deemed failure to take delivery and the Sellers shall not thereafter be bound to deliver the goods to the Buyer but the Buyer shall forthwith upon receiving notice repay to the Seller any loss which the Seller may have suffered upon a resale of the goods.

6. Reasonable care is taken by the Seller to ensure that all materials supplied are of merchantable quality. Nevertheless, the Seller draws attention to the fact that the specification and condition of natural mineral products cannot be guaranteed and defects of quality can and do exist. It is therefore stressed that all deliveries must be thoroughly examined and tested prior to use and the Seller does not accept responsibility for consequential or other loss arising from the failure of the Buyer to carry out such an examination. In any event, the Seller specifically restricts his liability to accepting the return of any unsatisfactory material in which case he will, if possible, replace if so requested by the Buyer, or alternatively credit the value involved.

7. The Seller is selling materials which can be used for a diversity of purposes, and gives no guarantee as to the fitness of the materials for any particular purpose. The Seller does not hold itself out as having any special skill or judgement in connection with the uses to which a particular Buyer may put such materials, and the Buyer agrees that it is unreasonable for him to rely on the Seller’s skill or judgement as to any matter connected with the purpose to which the materials supplied may be put.

8. All claims in respect of short or damaged deliveries or alleged unsuitability of goods delivered must be notified to us within 5 days of receipt of the delivery in question.
