    4. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to take place on the Goods’ arrival at the Site.
    5. Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence. The Goods may be delivered by Think Drinks in advance of any quoted delivery date provided reasonable notice is given to the Customer by Think Drinks.
    6. Think Drinks reserves the right to deliver the Goods by instalments and to raise a separate invoice for each instalment which shall constitute separate contracts.
    7. Late delivery of the Goods (whether in full or in part) shall not entitle the Customer to reject the Goods, terminate the Contract or withhold payment of any part of the price set out in the relevant Contract.
    8. Think Drinks reserves the right to deliver up to 10% more or less than the quantity of Goods stated on the Master Order and, in the event of such variance, to adjust the price pro rata.

    10. Without prejudice to clause 4.9 above, Think Drinks’ liability for non-delivery of the Goods shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Customer in obtaining replacement goods of a similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods.
    11. If the Customer fails to accept delivery of the Goods or fails to give Think Drinks adequate delivery instructions, then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to Think Drinks, Think Drinks may:
      1. store or arrange storage of the Goods pending delivery to the Customer at the Customer’s expense; and/or
      2. re-sell the Goods to any other person at the best price readily available and (after deducting reasonable expenses incurred by Think Drinks) charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price as set out in the Contract provided that such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or Think Drinks’ failure to comply with its obligations under this agreement.
  5. TITLE AND RISK
    1. The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on Delivery.
    2. Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until:

      2. the Customer sells the Goods to a third party, in which event, ownership shall pass immediately prior to the re-sale.
    3. Think Drinks’ ownership of the Goods shall not be affected by any alteration, attachment or incorporation of the Goods into any other goods whilst in the Customer’s control.

      2. update Think Drinks about all material matters relating to the Goods;
      3. grant Think Drinks all required access for the purpose of:

      4. notify Think Drinks immediately if it becomes subject to any Insolvency or Incapacity Event;
      5. give Think Drinks such information relating to the Goods as Think Drinks may require from time to time; and

    2. Until title to the Goods passes to the Customer in accordance with the terms of this agreement and without prejudice to clause 6.3 below, the Customer shall:
      1. hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as Think Drinks’ bailee;
      2. store the Goods in such a manner as to enable them to remain identifiable as Think Drinks’ property; and
      3. not remove, deface or obscure the packaging of the Goods.
    3. Nothing in this clause shall prevent the Customer from re-selling the Goods in the ordinary course of business.
    4. Where the Customer has either sold or agreed to sell Goods which would, but for the re-sale, belong to Think Drinks, the Customer agrees to hold any proceeds from such sales on trust for Think Drinks.
  7. PRICE
    1. The price for the Goods shall be the price set out in the Master Order, or if no price is quoted, the price shall be that set out in Think Drinks’ price list current at the date Think Drinks signs the Master Order.
    2. During the Initial Supply Period, Think Drinks may increase the price for the Goods at any time prior to Delivery of Goods under a Contract, to reflect an increase in the cost of the Goods that is due to any:
      1. factor beyond Think Drinks’ control (including increases in taxes and duties and increases in manufacturing costs);
      2. alteration to the Contract by the Customer; or
      3. delay caused by any inadequate or inaccurate delivery or other instructions given by the Customer.
    3. After the Initial Supply Period, Think Drinks may at its sole discretion, adjust the prices charged for the Goods provided that the Customer receives at least 2 months’ Notice of such increase.
    4. Unless otherwise stated, all prices given by Think Drinks for the Goods are exclusive of VAT or any other taxes or fees.
  8. PAYMENT
    1. Think Drinks may invoice the Customer for the Goods on or at any time after the Customer places an order for Goods under the terms of this agreement. Unless otherwise agreed, payment shall be due immediately.
    2. The Customer shall at the request of Think Drinks, complete a Direct Debit mandate authorising Think Drinks to deduct payments for the Goods from the Customer’s bank account when payment becomes due or as otherwise agreed.
    3. Time for payment shall be of the essence. If the payment is not received in accordance with this clause, Think Drinks may:
      1. charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum above the base rate from time to time of Barclays Bank plc or such greater amount as may be allowed under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998, calculated on a daily basis and/or;
      2. cancel the Contract; and/or
      3. suspend any further deliveries to the Customer; and/or
      4. charge the Customer with all costs incurred in the recovery of the due sums, including but not limited to, the costs incurred in acting pursuant to clause 8.3(e) below; and/or
      5. exercise any of Think Drinks’ rights to recover possession of the Goods which are in course of transit to the Customer.
    4. The Customer shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against Think Drinks in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount under this agreement, either in whole or in part. Think Drinks may at any time, without limiting any other rights or remedies it may have, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by Think Drinks to the Customer.
  9. WARRANTY
    1. Think Drinks warrants that on delivery, the Goods shall:
      1. conform in all material respects with their description and any applicable specification; and
      2. be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979).
    2. Failure by Think Drinks to comply with clause 9.1 shall entitle the Customer to terminate this agreement.
  10. LIABILITY
    1. Because information and knowledge about the Customer’s potential losses suffered as a result of Think Drinks’ breach of contract is more readily ascertainable by the Customer, and because any such losses could be disproportionate to the Contract price, in order that Think Drinks can keep the price of the Goods as low as possible, the parties agree that Think Drinks limits its liability as follows:
      1. Where a valid Claim in respect of the Goods is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Goods or as otherwise agreed between the parties, Think Drinks agrees to replace any of the Goods at no extra cost to the Customer or, at Think Drinks’ sole discretion, to refund to the Customer the purchase price of the Goods (or proportionate part of the price), but Think Drinks shall have no further liability to the Customer.
      2. Nothing in this agreement shall exclude or limit either party’s liability for death or personal injury caused by its own negligence, fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other liability which cannot be excluded by law.
      3. If more than one person is named as the Customer on the Master Order or any subsequent Contract for the supply of Goods, their liability shall be joint and several.
      4. Any condition, warranty or other term concerning the Goods which might otherwise be implied into or incorporated within this agreement, whether by statute, common law or otherwise, is expressly excluded.
    2. Without prejudice to clause 10.1:
      1. Think Drinks’ maximum aggregate liability for breach of this agreement shall in no circumstances exceed £50,000
      2. neither party shall be liable under this agreement for:
        1. any loss of profit;
        2. any loss of revenue
        3. any loss of business; or
        4. any indirect or consequential loss or damage, in each case, however caused, even if foreseeable.
  11. TERMINATION
    1. Think Drinks may, without prejudice to any other right or remedy which may be available to it, terminate this agreement immediately by Notice to the Customer if:
      1. the Customer defaults in any of its payment obligations under this agreement, any agreement or the supply of Goods or any other agreement between the Parties;
      2. the Customer commits a material breach of this agreement which breach is irremediable, or which breach (if remediable) is not remedied within ten (10) Business Days after the service of a Notice from Think Drinks requiring it to do so;
      3. the Customer stops using the Equipment and/or ordering the Goods in favour of another supplier of the same or similar Goods or Equipment;

        6. a person becomes entitled to appoint a receiver over the assets of the Customer or a receiver is appointed over the assets of the Customer; or
        7. a creditor or encumbrancer of the Customer attaches or takes possession of, or a distress, execution, sequestration or other such process is levied or enforced on or sued against, the whole or any part of the Customer’s assets and such attachment or process is not discharged within 7 days; or
        8. any event occurs, or proceeding is taken, with respect to the Customer in any jurisdiction to which it is subject that has an effect equivalent or similar to any of the events mentioned in clause 11.1(d)(i) to clause 11.1(d)(vii) (inclusive);
      5. the other party suspends or ceases, or threatens to suspend or cease, carrying on all or a substantial part of its business; or
