    2. for non-standard products, the Buyer pays to Atech Solutions an amount equal to all manufacturing costs incurred by Atech Solutions up to and including the date of cancellation; and

    3. for both standard and non-standard products, the Buyer, unless otherwise directed by Atech Solutions , immediately returns to Atech Solutions , at no cost to Atech Solutions, all related marketing materials and similar literature supplied to the Buyer by Atech Solutions.

  22. If Atech Solutions authorises the return for credit of goods treated as accepted under clause 18, they may only be returned if they are:

    1. returned to Atech Solutions 's warehouse by prior arrangement within 7 days of Atech Solutions authorising their return, at no cost to Atech Solutions (unless delivered as the result of an administrative error by Atech Solutions , in which case Atech Solutions will bear the cost of return); and

    Delivery of goods

  27. All quoted delivery or consignment dates are estimates only and are not of the essence of the delivery. Atech Solutions is not obliged to meet such dates and will not be liable to the Buyer by reason of delays caused by any reason whatsoever.

  28. All goods must be delivered by Atech Solutions to the Buyer on an ex-works basis or another basis agreed in writing between the parties. The goods are 'delivered' by Atech Solutions when the goods are placed at the disposal of the Buyer (including its nominee or agent) at Atech Solutions's premises or another place agreed in writing between the parties.

  29. Atech Solutions may deliver the goods by instalments (where in Atech Solutions's opinion this is reasonable to do so) and issue interim invoices to the Buyer for the goods delivered.

    Title and risk

  30. Risk in the goods supplied by Atech Solutions to the Buyer passes to the Buyer on delivery of the goods by Atech Solutions and the Buyer must insure the goods from the time that risk passes to the Buyer.

  31. Although risk in the goods passes under clause 30, property in the goods does not pass to the Buyer until they and all other goods supplied by Atech Solutions and all debts owing to Atech Solutions have been paid for in full.

  32. Until the goods have been paid for in full, the Buyer:

    1. must insure them and keep them in good repair and condition, excluding fair wear and tear;

    2. must keep them stored separately and marked so that the goods are clearly and easily identifiable as Atech Solutions 's property and, if requested, inform Atech Solutions of the location of the goods;

    3. may sell them in the ordinary course of business, as agent in a fiduciary capacity for Atech Solutions and must account to Atech Solutions and hold on trust for Atech Solutions the proceeds (including any proceeds from insurance claims) which must be kept in a separate bank account;

    4. agrees not to sell, assign, charge or otherwise encumber or grant any interest over any obligations which any third party may owe to the Buyer as a result of the use, manufacture or resale of the goods;

    5. must maintain and allow Atech Solutions to inspect records which: (i) identify the goods; (ii) detail third parties to whom the Buyer sells or otherwise disposes of the goods; and (iii) detail payments made by such third parties for the goods.

  33. The Buyer must provide evidence of the currency of the insurance referred to in clause 32(a) to Atech Solutions on receipt of reasonable notice.

  34. Where the Buyer does not make payment in respect of specific goods, payment must be treated as having been made first in respect of goods which have passed out of the possession of the Buyer, and then in respect of whatever goods which are still in the possession of the Buyer Atech Solutions elects.

  35. If the purchase price of all goods sold by Atech Solutions to the Buyer is greater than the sum of:

    1. the proceeds actually received by Atech Solutions in respect of all dealings by the Buyer with the goods (including the sale of Manufactured Product referred to in clause 39); and.

    2. all other payments received by Atech Solutions in respect of the goods, the difference remains a debt owing by the Buyer to Atech Solutions.

  36. Without prejudice to any other rights of Atech Solutions , Atech Solutions is entitled to reclaim possession of any goods in satisfaction of all debts owing to Atech Solutions , even if they have been paid for in full, if any of the following events (Insolvency Event) occurs: (a) the Buyer defaults under any Supply Contract; (b) the Buyer commits an act of bankruptcy; (c) a receiver is appointed to the Buyer; (d) the Buyer goes into liquidation, administration, or some other form of insolvency administration whether formal or informal; (e) the Buyer ceases to carry on business; or (f) the Buyer makes a scheme or compromises with its creditors;

  37. The Buyer irrevocably authorises Atech Solutions at any time to enter any premises:

    1. Upon which Atech Solutions 's goods are stored: (i) to inspect the goods; and (ii) if the Buyer has breached a Supply Contract, or has committed another Insolvency Event, to reclaim possession of the goods; without prejudice to any other rights of Atech Solutions ; and

    2. Upon which the Buyer's records relating to the goods are held, to inspect and copy the records.

  38. Atech Solutions's property in the goods is not affected by the fact that the goods become fixtures attached to premises of the Buyer or a third party, and if Atech Solutions enters those premises for the purpose of reclaiming possession of the goods, and incurs any liability to any person in connection with the entry or reclamation, the Buyer indemnifies Atech Solutions against that liability.

  39. Until the goods have been paid for in full, if the Buyer uses the goods in a manufacturing or construction process, of its own or some third party, and sells the product of the manufacturing or construction process (Manufactured Product), then the Buyer holds that part of the proceeds of the sale of any Manufactured Product as relates to any goods sold by Atech Solutions to the Buyer and used in the manufacturing or construction process in trust for Atech Solutions. Such part shall be treated, for the purpose of quantifying how much the Buyer holds in trust for Atech Solutions but for no other purpose, as being equal in dollar terms to the amount owing by the Buyer to Atech Solutions at the time of receipt by the Buyer of the proceeds of sale for all goods sold by Atech Solutions to the Buyer. Such part must be kept in a separate bank account.

  40. If the amount owing by the Buyer to Atech Solutions is greater than the proceeds of sale of the Manufactured Product the balance remains owing by the Buyer to Atech Solutions. The Buyer must not assign the right to any such proceeds or enter into any other arrangement would result in the Buyer not receiving those proceeds.

  41. The Buyer and Atech Solutions agree that the provisions of clause 30 to this clause 41 (both inclusive) apply despite any arrangement between the parties under which Atech Solutions or a related body corporate of Atech Solutions grants the Buyer credit.

    Warranty claims

  42. The Buyer must not make any representation or give any warranty in promoting or marketing the goods, or in connection with the sale of the goods, other than those contained in Atech Solutions's printed literature or otherwise communicated in writing to the Buyer by Atech Solutions.

  44. Atech Solutions expressly disclaims any liability for any claims by a customer (being a customer who orders or purchases goods, supplied to the Buyer by Atech Solutions, from the Buyer) under any express or implied warranty given to the customer in connection with the purchase of goods by the customer arising from, or in connection with, the breach of any Supply Contract by the Buyer or any negligence of the Buyer.

  45. Nothing in clauses 43 or 44 in any way affects any right of indemnity or to compensation, or other right or remedy, which the Buyer or any customer may have under the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) or any corresponding State or Territory legislation.

    1. any loss or damage consequential or otherwise suffered or incurred by that person in relation to the goods or advice, recommendations, information or services in relation to the goods; and
