DLS nor to withhold payment of any invoice because part of that invoice is in dispute.

GST DLS must pay for any supply by DLS under this or any other agreement for the sale of the Goods. The Customer must pay GST,

in these terms and conditions.

Customer as a result of delivery being late. However, both parties agree that they shall make every endeavour to enable the Goods to be
delivered at the time and place as was arranged between both parties. In the event that DLS is unable to supply the Goods as agreed solely
due to any action or inaction of the Customer, then DLS shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for redelivery and/or storage.
8. Risk
8.1 Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to the Customer on Delivery and the Customer must insure the Goods before Delivery.
8.2 If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following Delivery but prior to ownership passing to the Customer, DLS is entitled to receive
all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by DLS is sufficient evidence of DLS’ rights to
receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with DLS to make further enquiries.
8.3 If the Customer requests DLS to leave Goods outside DLS’ premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location then
such Goods shall be left at the Customer’s sole risk.

hours), and attend to the repair and re-instatement, or replacement, of the faulty Goods and/or machine;
(d) the Customer acknowledges that DLS is only responsible for parts that are replaced by DLS and that in the event that other parts and/or
components, subsequently fail, the Customer agrees to indemnify DLS against any loss or damage to the machine, or caused by the
machine, or any part thereof howsoever arising.
10. Title
10.1 DLS and the Customer agree that ownership of the Goods shall not pass until:
(a) the Customer has paid DLS all amounts owing to DLS; and
(b) the Customer has met all of its other obligations to DLS.
10.2 Receipt by DLS of any form of payment other than cash shall not be deemed to be payment until that form of payment has been honoured,

any such act on trust for DLS and must pay or deliver the proceeds to DLS on demand.
(d) the Customer should not convert or process the Goods or intermix them with other goods but if the Customer does so then the Customer
holds the resulting product on trust for the benefit of DLS and must sell, dispose of or return the resulting product to DLS as it so directs.
