and CBM will advise the Customer of the costs of delivery.

Where the Customer expressly requests CBM to either:
leave Goods outside CBM’s nominated business premises for collection; or
to deliver the Goods to an unattended location,
such Goods will be left at the nominated location at the Customer’s sole risk
The failure of CBM to deliver will not entitle either party to treat these Terms & Conditions as repudiated.
CBM will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever due to failure by CBM to deliver the Goods (or any of them) promptly or at all, where due to circumstances beyond the control of CBM.
CBM and the Customer agree that ownership of the Goods will not pass until:
the Customer has paid CBM all amounts owing for the particular Goods; and
the Customer has met all other obligations due by the Customer to CBM in respect of all contracts between CBM and the Customer.
CBM’s title or rights in the Goods will continue until any form of payment by a Customer has been received, honoured, cleared or acknowledged by CBM.
The parties acknowledge and agree as follows:
where practicable the Goods will be kept separate and identifiable until CBM has received payment and all other obligations of the Customer are met;
until such time as ownership of the Goods passes from CBM to the Customer, CBM may give notice in writing to the Customer to return the Goods or any of them to CBM. Upon such notice the rights of the Customer to obtain ownership or any other interest in the Goods will cease;
CBM will have the right of stopping the Goods in transit whether or not delivery has been made;
if the Customer fails to return the Goods to CBM then CBM or CBM’s agent may (as the invitee of the Customer) enter upon and into land and premises owned, occupied or used by the Customer, or any premises where the Goods are situated and take possession of the Goods;
the Customer is only a bailee of the Goods and until such time as CBM has received payment in full for the Goods then the Customer will hold any proceeds from the sale or disposal of the Goods, up to and including the amount the Customer owes to CBM for the Goods, on trust for CBM;
the Customer will not charge the Goods in any way nor grant nor otherwise give any interest in the Goods while they remain the property of CBM;
CBM may issue proceedings to recover the Price of the Goods sold notwithstanding that title to the Goods may not have passed to the Customer; and
until such time that ownership in the Goods passes to the Customer, if the Goods are converted into other products, the parties agree that CBM will be the owner of the end products.
Notwithstanding clause 6, all risk for the Goods passes to the Customer on delivery of the Goods in accordance with these Terms & Conditions.
If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following delivery but prior to title passing to the Customer, CBM is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The Customer will be liable for any claim processing fee.
The production of these Terms & Conditions by CBM is sufficient evidence of CBM’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with CBM to make further enquiries.
