2.1     A quotation by Promar International does not constitute an offer. Notwithstanding that Promar International may have given a detailed quotation or estimate either verbally or in Writing, no Contract shall come into existence until the Order has been acknowledged in Writing by Promar International or the Goods are delivered or the Services are provided by Promar International to the Customer pursuant to the Order (whichever is earlier), at which point the Contract shall come into existence.                                                            All Orders are subject to availability and Promar International reserves the right to refuse any Order in whole or in part. The Customer shall ensure that the terms of its Order and any applicable specification are complete and accurate.

2.3     These Conditions are incorporated in every Contract and contain the entire obligations between Promar International and the Customer in relation to the provision of the Goods and/or Services pursuant to the Contract.               These Conditions shall apply in place of and prevail over any terms or conditions (whether or not in conflict or inconsistent with these Conditions) contained or referred to in any documentation submitted by the Customer or in correspondence or elsewhere or implied by trade custom, practice or course of dealing. In the event of Promar International entering into the Contract without Promar International having submitted a written quotation or other letter or document incorporating or referring to these Conditions but in circumstances where the Customer has had prior notice of these Conditions then the Contract shall be subject to these Conditions.

2.4     Acceptance by the Customer of delivery of the Goods or provision of the Services shall (without prejudice to Condition 2.1 or any other manner in which acceptance of these Conditions may be evidenced) be deemed to constitute unqualified acceptance of these Conditions.

The price payable for the Services shall be Promar International’s current rate at the dates of provision of the Services. Promar International may at its discretion vary such rates at any time or as agreed in Writing between the parties.

3.2     Any price set out in any quotation or estimate shall be considered to have been given solely for information and shall not constitute an obligation on the part of Promar International that it will deliver the Goods and/or provide the Service at that price.

3.3     All prices are exclusive of any applicable Value Added Tax which will be charged at the rate applicable at the date of invoice.

4        Terms of Payment

4.1     Notwithstanding any other provision of these Conditions Promar International shall be entitled to invoice and require payment for Goods and/or Services in advance of delivery.

4.2     Unless otherwise agreed the price for the Goods and/or Services shall be due and payable to Promar International in full in Pounds Sterling (in cash or cleared funds) within twenty eight (28) days of the date of invoice. Time for payment is of the essence of the Contract.

4.3     If the Customer does not pay the whole or any part of the price due to Promar International under the Contract by the due date, then the Customer shall pay to Promar International interest on the amount outstanding from the due date until the actual date of payment (whether before or after judgement) at the rate of 4% per annum over the base rate of Barclays Bank PLC from time to time in force, which shall accrue on a daily basis and be calculated on the basis of a year of 365 days. The parties agree that this constitutes a substantial remedy in terms of the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998. The Customer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount and any expense incurred by Promar International in connection with the recovery of the outstanding amount (including legal costs).

4.4     So long as any payment due from the Customer to Promar International is outstanding, whether under the same or any other Contract or transaction between Promar International and the Customer, Promar International shall have a lien on any Goods or property of the Customer in its possession and shall be entitled to retain them and/or suspend the provision of Goods and/or services to the Customer under any Contract until such payments have been made.

4.5     The Customer shall not be entitled to withhold payment of any amount due to Promar International by reason of any disputed claim by the Customer in connection with the Contract nor shall the Customer be entitled to set off against any amount payable under the Contract to Promar International against any amount which is not then due and payable to Promar International or for which Promar International disputes liability. Promar International may at any time, without limiting any other right to or remedies it may have, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by Promar International to the Customer.

4.6     All payments payable to Promar International under a Contract shall become due immediately on its termination despite any other provision.

5        Delivery

5.1     Delivery of Goods shall be deemed to be effected by Promar International at the following times:

5.1.1     where Goods are delivered by Promar International or by an independent carrier arranged by Promar International, when the same are unloaded at the Customer’s premises or at premises nominated by the Customer; or

5.1.2     where Goods are collected by or on behalf of the Customer at the time that Promar International notifies the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection.

5.2     Delivery of Services shall be deemed to be effected by Promar International at the time of completion by Promar International of the Services.

5.3      Whilst Promar International will make every reasonable effort to complete the Contract by the date or dates therein specified for delivery of Goods and/or provision of Services such date or

dates are approximate only and shall only constitute the times by which Promar International expects to effect such delivery of Goods and/or provision of Services and shall not have any contractual effect. Time for delivery of Goods and/or provision of Services by Promar International shall not be of the essence of the Contract and shall not be made so by service of any notice. Promar International failure to so deliver and/or provide by the due date or dates shall not constitute a breach of Contract and shall not entitle the Customer to terminate or rescind the Contract. Promar International may wholly or partly suspend deliveries of Goods and/or provision of Services and the Customer shall accept late delivery of such Goods and/or provision of Services and shall not be entitled to any compensation in respect thereof.

6        Instalments

6.1     Where Goods are to be delivered and/or Services are to be provided by instalments each instalment shall be deemed to be sold under separate Contract and failure by Promar International to provide any one or more instalments or any claim by the Customer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Customer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.

6.2     If Goods and/or Services are to be delivered and/or provided by Instalments, Promar International shall be entitled to invoice each instalment as and when delivery and/or provision is made and payment for all delivered and/or provided instalments shall be due notwithstanding the non-delivery and/or non-provision of other instalments or other default by Promar International. Failure by the Customer to make payment by the due date for any one instalment for whatever reason shall entitle Promar International to suspend deliveries of any Goods and/or provision of any Services under the Contract but without prejudice to any other right Promar International may have under any of the provisions of these Conditions.

6.3     Section 32(2) of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 does not apply to the Contract, such that where Promar International delivers Goods to a carrier and the Goods are lost or damaged in the course of transit, the Customer may not automatically hold Promar International liable for its failure to conclude a reasonable contract with the carrier on behalf of the Customer and/or hold Promar International responsible in damages.

7        Suspension and Termination

7.1     If the Customer becomes subject to any of the events in Condition 7.2 or Promar International has reason to believe that the Customer is about to become subject to any of them and notifies the Customer accordingly, then, without limiting any other right or remedy available to Promar International, Promar International may :-
