    4.4 Where the price of an element of power, fuel, raw material

    as at the date of the Contract then Castle may increase the
    price payable by the Buyer by a commensurate amount
    calculated by Castle acting reasonably and taking into
    account that increase and the proportionate amount of that
    element within the total manufacturing cost of the Goods.
    Castle shall notify or e-mail the Buyer of the said increase
    in the price of the Goods. The Buyer may terminate the
    Contract by giving notice to Castle promptly after receipt of

    protected and insured and identified as Castle’s property,
    but shall be entitled to resell or use the Goods in the
    ordinary course of its business.
    5.4 Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the
    Buyer (and provided the Goods are still in separate
    identifiable existence and have not been resold) Castle
    shall be entitled at any time to require the Buyer to deliver
    up the Goods to Castle and, if the Buyer fails to do so
    forthwith, to enter upon any premises of the Buyer or any
    third party where the Goods are stored and repossess the
    Goods.

    charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the
    Goods which remain the property of Castle, but if the

    time to time given to the Buyer.

    admitted by Castle in writing.
    6.5 Where Castle at any time invoices the Buyer in relation to
    any Goods supplied in instalments pursuant to condition 8.1 below,
    then the Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the Buyer shall
    make payment to Castle in relation to any stage payment invoice in
    accordance with condition 6.2 above and will not under any
    circumstances seek to set off, deduct or counterclaim against any
    payment due to Castle in relation to any claim that the Buyer may
    then or later have against Castle in respect of any Goods supplied
    or to be supplied by Castle which are not the subject of that stage
    payment invoice.
  7. DELIVERY
    7.1 Where Castle agrees or states a specified delivery date,
    Castle shall use reasonable endeavours to deliver on or
    before the relevant date, but Castle shall be under no
    obligation to do so.

    specified time. The Buyer shall be obliged to accept any
    delivery during the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on a

    transactions in the territory in which the Buyer is situated
    (the “Normal Delivery Hours”). If the Buyer requests that
    delivery take place at a specified time or outside the
    Normal Delivery Hours and the same is recorded in the

    endeavours to deliver at the specified time. Castle may

    absolute discretion.
    7.3 Time shall not be of the essence with respect to any of

    7.10 The provisions of Conditions 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.8 and 7.9 above
    are subject to any contrary provision of the Sales Order
    Confirmation which may specify a different Time of

    stated in that Incoterm (and if none is so stated, then in

    7.8 and 7.9 above).
  8. DELIVERY BY INSTALMENTS
    8.1 Castle shall be entitled to deliver the Goods by
    instalments. Each instalment shall be treated as if it
    constituted a separate and distinct contract between
    Castle and the Buyer.
    8.2 Any failure, suspension or delay by Castle in respect of
    any part-delivery of the goods or the discovery of any
    defect in any of the Goods so delivered shall not entitle the
    Buyer to cancel the remainder of the contract and shall not
    affect the obligations of the Buyer in respect of the
    remainder of the Goods or the remainder of the Contract.
  9. SUITABILITY OF STORAGE AND OFFLOADING
    FACILITIES
    Castle reserves the right at any time to refuse to make
    delivery of the Goods if in its sole opinion the storage and
    offloading facilities proposed by the Buyer are inadequate
    or unsuitable. Where the Goods are delivered by Castle
    such delivery shall in no way constitute a commitment or
    representation by Castle as to the adequacy or suitability
    of the Buyer’s storage or offloading facilities. The Buyer
    shall at all times be solely responsible and liable to ensure
    that the Buyer’s storage and offloading facilities are
    adequate and suitable.
  10. FAILURE TO ACCEPT DELIVERY WHEN TENDERED
    10.1 Where any delay in delivery of the Goods is caused by the
    Buyer, Castle shall be entitled to charge the Buyer all
    proper costs arising out of such delay including without
    limitation the cost of returning the Goods to Castle’s
    premises, of storing the Goods and of re-delivering the
    Goods.
    10.2 Where any delay in delivery of any services is caused by

    limitation the wasted cost of having men and materials
    ready to deliver the service.

    Castle reasonable notice so to do.
  11. FORCE MAJEURE AND HARDSHIP

    commotion, compliance with a law or governmental order,
    rule, regulation or direction, fire, flood, storm, riot, strike or
    other industrial action (including without limitation strike or
    other industrial action by the employees of the party

    undertaker, utility company, local authority or like body to
    provide services, any failure, shortage or significant price
    increase of power, fuel, raw material or transport, and any
    act or omission of any third party to the extent that
    performance of any obligation of the party claiming the
    benefit of the Clause relies thereon.
    11.2 Neither party shall be under any liability to the other party
    in respect of any failure to perform or delay in performing
    any of its contractual obligations to the other party (other
    than an obligation to pay monies) attributable to any Force
    Majeure Event and no such failure or delay shall be
    deemed for any purpose to constitute a breach of contract.
    The party seeking to take advantage of this Clause 11
    shall:
    11.2.1 give the other party notice as soon as reasonably
    practicable of the said Force Majeure Event; and
    11.2.2 use and continue to use its reasonable endeavours to
    overcome the said Force Majeure Event and to minimise
    the said failure or delay.
  12. TERMINATION
    12.1 If:
    12.1.1 the Buyer makes any voluntary arrangement with its
    creditors or (being an individual or firm) becomes bankrupt
    or (being a company) goes into liquidation (otherwise than

    reconstruction) or has an administrator or administrative
    receiver appointed over the whole or any part of its assets;
    or12.1.2 an encumbrancer takes possession, or a receiver is
    appointed, of any of the property or assets of the Buyer; or

    business; or
    12.1.4 Castle reasonably apprehends that any of the events
    mentioned above is about to occur in relation to the Buyer
    and notifies the Buyer accordingly; or
    12.1.5 any event takes place in any jurisdiction other than
    England which is analogous to any of the above under this
    Clause 12.1; or
    12.1.6 the Buyer is in breach of any material provision of the
    Contract and fails to remedy such breach within thirty (30)
    days of a notice from Castle indicating the breach and
    requiring the Buyer to remedy the same.
    12.2 Where Clause 12.1 applies then, without prejudice to any
    other right or remedy available to Castle, Castle shall be
    entitled to cancel the Contract or suspend any further
    deliveries under the Contract without any liability to the
    Buyer.
    12.3 Where Clause 12.1 applies and if the Goods have been
    delivered but not paid for, the price shall become
    immediately due and payable notwithstanding any
    previous agreement or arrangement to the contrary.
    12.4 The Buyer may terminate the Contract at any time not less
    than twenty four (24) hours before the time that the Goods
    are scheduled to leave Castle’s premises provided always
    that where the Buyer excercises this right, the Buyer shall
    be liable to compensate Castle for costs incurred prior to
    receipt by Castle of notice of such termination. Castle may
    issue an invoice for such costs at any time after such
    notice of termination has been received.
  13. VARIATION IN SPECIFICATION
    13.1 Castle’s only responsibility shall be to deliver Goods in
    accordance with any formal written specification referred to
    in the relevant Sales Order Confirmation. If the Buyer
    wishes an alternative specification the Buyer must raise
    that issue prior to the Contract being entered into.
    13.2 Castle shall be responsible for ensuring that the Goods
    when supplied are in accordance with the specification.
    Castle shall not be obliged to undertake any tests not
    relating to the specification. Without limitation, Castle shall
    not be under any obligation to test for any contaminant not
    envisaged by the specification. The Buyer shall in
    accordance with good manufacturing principles also check
    that the Goods meet the specification prior to using the
    Goods or supplying the Goods to a third party.
    13.3 Where the Goods are pre-packaged goods that are sold
    on by Castle in the same packaging as they are bought by
    Castle, then in place of Conditions 13.1 and 13.2 above,
    Castle’s only obligation shall be to use its reasonable
    endeavours to pass on to the Buyer the warranties given
    to Castle by the seller of the Goods to Castle.
    13.4 Castle may by giving written notice or e-mail to the Buyer
    vary the specification of the Goods at any time. The Buyer
    may terminate the Contract by giving notice promptly after
    receipt of any such notice or e-mail.
  14. LIABILITY
    14.1 Save as expressly provided in these Conditions or in any
    individual Contract, all terms, conditions and warranties
    implied by statute, common law or otherwise howsoever
    arising are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
    The Buyer is solely responsible for satisfying itself and
    others as to the suitability of the Goods for any particular
    purpose and the Buyer acknowledges that it is relying
    solely on the Buyer’s own skill and judgement and not
    Castle’s in determining such suitability. Castle warrants
    that the Goods will comply with the specification previously
    supplied to the Buyer, as further provided for in Clause 13
    above. If no specification has previously been supplied to
    the Buyer, a specification will be supplied to the Buyer on
    request and Castle warrants that the Goods will comply
    with that specification.
    14.2 Castle’s charges to the Buyer are determined on the basis
    of the exclusions from and limitations of liability contained
    in the Contract. The Buyer expressly agrees that these
    exclusions and limitations are reasonable because of
    (amongst other matters) the likelihood that the amount of
    damages awardable to the Buyer for a breach of Contract
    by Castle may be disproportionately greater than the
    price of the Goods.
    14.3 The following provisions in this Clause 14 set out Castle’s
    entire liability (including any liability for the acts and
    omissions of its employees, agents or sub-contractors) to
    the Buyer in respect of:
    14.3.1 a breach of Castle’s contractual obligations;
    14.3.2 a tortious act or omission for which Castle is liable;
    14.3.3 an action arising out of a misrepresentation made by or on
    behalf of Castle;
    arising in connection with the performance or
    contemplated performance of the Contract or out of an act
    done or omission made as a consequence of the entry into
    by Castle of the Contract.
    14.4 The total liability which Castle shall owe to the Buyer and
    in respect of all claims shall not exceed the price of the
    Goods.
    14.5 Castle shall in no circumstances be liable to the Buyer for
    any pure economic loss, loss of profit, loss of business and
    like loss. Castle shall in no circumstances be liable to the
    Buyer for any indirect loss.
    14.6 The Buyer shall only be entitled to bring a claim against
    Castle where the Buyer issues legal proceedings against
    Castle within the period that is the lesser of (i) the shelf life
    of the Goods and (ii) the period of twelve (12) months
    commencing on the date upon which the Buyer ought
    reasonably to have known of its entitlement to bring such a
    claim.
    14.7 The exclusion of liability referred to in this Clause 14 does
    not apply so as to exclude or limit Castle’s liability for:
    14.7.1 death or personal injury resulting from the negligence of
    Castle, its servants or agents; or
    14.7.2 damage for which Castle is liable to the Buyer under Part I
    of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and where the Buyer
    acts as a consumer pursuant to that Act;
    14.7.3 breach of Castle’s implied undertaking as to title to the
    Goods contained in Section 12 of the Sale Goods Act
    1979 or Section 2 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act
    1982.
    save that nothing in this Clause 14 shall confer a right or
    remedy upon the Buyer to which the Buyer would not
    otherwise be entitled.
    14.8 The exclusions from and limitations of liability set out in
    this Clause 14 shall be considered severably. The validity
    or unenforceability of any one paragraph or sub-paragraph
    of this Clause 14 shall not affect the validity or
    enforceability of any other part of this Clause 14.
    14.9 The provisions of this Clause 14 shall survive the
    termination of the whole or a Part of the Contract.
  15. SAMPLES
    Except where the Goods are specifically ordered in writing
    against samples supplied by Castle and the Sales Order
    Confirmation expressly refers to those samples, any and
    all samples supplied by Castle are supplied for information
    only. Where the Buyer requires an additional warranty that
    the Goods comply with such a sample, the Buyer must
    communicate the same to Castle prior to the issue of a
    Sales Order Confirmation. The Sales Order Confirmation
    shall refer to any additional warranty (in the form of an
    additional specification) to which Castle may agree. Castle
    does not give any further warranty about compliance of the
    Goods with any sample other than in respect of the
    specification contained in the Sales Order Confirmation.
  16. CONTAINERS AND PALLETS
    16.1 This Clause 16 shall only apply where containers or pallets
    belonging to Castle are used in connection with the
    delivery of the Goods.
    16.2 The value of all chargeable containers or pallets used in
    connection with the delivery of the Goods will be shown as
    a separate item on Castle’s sales invoice for the Goods
    and shall be paid for in full by the Buyer when payment for
    the Goods is due.
  17. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
    The supply of any of the Goods by Castle shall not give the
    Buyer any rights whatsoever in respect of any Intellectual
    Property owned, used or enjoyed by Castle in connection
    with the Goods.
  18. CLAIMS
    18.1 The Buyer shall inspect the Goods as soon as is
    practicable after the Time of Delivery and shall give to
    Castle and the carrier in writing before the end of the next
    working day after the Time of Delivery notice of any claim
    for any defect, shortage, damage or loss to the Goods
    whilst in transit. If the Buyer fails to do so, the Goods shall
    be conclusively presumed to have been received and
    accepted by the Buyer without any claim for any defect,
    shortage, damage or loss.
    18.2 The provisions of this Clause 18 shall only apply where
    any claim for any defect, shortage, damage or loss to the

    always that Castle shall remain responsible for the acts
    and omissions of its subcontractors.
  22. WAIVER
    Save in respect of a waiver granted in writing, the failure of
    Castle at any time to enforce a provision of the Contract

    other provision of the Contract or of Castle’s right
    thereafter to enforce that or any other provision of the
    Contract.
