i.              the right to seize and recover possession of the Goods;

ii.             if the Customer sells the Goods, the right to a security interest over the proceeds of sale; and

i.              paying the amounts required to discharge or perform its obligations under these Conditions, secured by the Supplier’s Interest; and

ii.             reimbursement of any expense in relation to the enforcement of the Supplier’s Interest, including the Supplier’s legal costs on an indemnity basis, the payment of which is secured by the Supplier’s Interest.

12.9        The Customer agrees to waive any rights associated with section 143 of the PPSA so long as the sale of the Goods by the Customer to a third party has not occurred.

12.10     The Customer waives (and provides ongoing waiver) of the Customer’s right to receive a verification statement in respect of any financing statement and agrees to the extent permitted by law that:

i.              where the Supplier has rights in addition to, or existing separately from those in Chapter 4 of the PPSA, those rights will continue to apply and in particular, will not be limited by Part 4.3 in Chapter 4 (seizure and disposal or detention of collateral); and

ii.             the rights of the Customer as debtor under sections 130, 132, 135 and 137 shall not apply to these Conditions.

12.11     The Customer waives the right to receive any notices dealing with the Goods and default and consents to not receiving any notices, as far as the law allows.

12.12     The Customer agrees that the Customer will not allow security interests to be created or registered over the Goods in priority to the Interest held by the Supplier.

12.13     The Customer agrees to allow the Supplier to register a security interest over the security interest that the Customer may have over third parties so far as the law allows.

12.14     The Customer agrees that in the event of external administration of the Customer, the Customer will disclose the quantity/volume of the Supplier’s Goods which are manufactured/comingled/mixed goods or otherwise which may be work in progress as at the date of appointment of an external administrator.

12.15     For the purpose of the PPSA, “goods” means all Goods supplied to the Customer from time to time, provided that:

i.              (but solely for the purpose of the PPSA) where the goods supplied are the Customer’s inventory, then all references to Goods in these Conditions shall in respect of those goods, be read as references to inventory for so long as they are held as inventory; and

ii.             where the goods supplied are not, or are no longer held as, the Customer’s inventory, then all references to Goods in these Conditions shall, in respect of those goods mean the goods described in any one or more of the relevant order form, packing slip or invoice (or its equivalent) prepared by the Supplier and relating to those goods, on the basis that each such order form, packing slip or invoice (or equivalent) is deemed to be assented to by the Customer, incorporated in, and form part of these Conditions; and

iii.            unless the context requires otherwise, includes all proceeds of such Goods and any product or mass which the Goods subsequently become part of.

12.16     As far as the PPSA allows, property and ownership in the Goods will not pass to the Customer but will remain with the Supplier until the Customer pays the Supplier in full the Purchase Price for the Goods and all other amounts owing to the Supplier by the Customer.

12.17     Any risk in the Goods will pass at the time of delivery to the Customer and the Customer must insure the Goods.

12.18     In the event that the Customer defaults under these Conditions, the Seller may in accordance with section 123 of the PPSA seize the Goods and in accordance with section 125 retain or dispose of the Goods. Divisions 3 and 4 under Chapter 4 of the PPSA will provide the rights of the Supplier in respect of retaining or disposing of the Goods.

12.19     Insofar as the PPSA allows, the Customer acknowledges that if it mixes the Goods with other products or items or that the Goods are no longer separately identifiable, the Customer and Supplier will be the owners in common of the new product and thereafter each party will have a right to share in any proceeds of sale. The proceeds of sale will be divided between the Customer and Supplier in accordance with their own respective value of contributed product or ingredient.

12.20     The provisions of this clause apply notwithstanding any arrangement between the parties under which the Supplier grants the Customer credit.

13.          Liability

13.1        The Supplier will not be liable for any claim, loss or expense sustained or incurred by any person arising in any way as a result of the unavailability of Goods, any delay in delivery of the Goods or any failure to deliver the Goods.

13.3        If rights are conferred upon the Customer or obligations are imposed upon the Supplier by the Australian Consumer Law which cannot be excluded, these Conditions shall be read subject to those rights or obligations.

(ii) payment of the cost of replacing the Goods or acquiring equivalent goods;

(iii) repair of the Goods;

(iv) payment of the cost of having the Goods repaired.

13.5        The Supplier will not be liable for any contingent, consequential or punitive damages arising in any way whatsoever. The Customer acknowledges this express limitation of liability and agrees to limit any claim accordingly. 

13.6        Any advice, recommendation, information or representation provided by the Supplier as to the quality of performance of the Goods or their suitability for a particular purpose or otherwise in relation to the Goods is given in good faith but without any liability or responsibility on the part of the Supplier. The Customer acknowledges that it has not relied upon or been induced by any representation of the Supplier.

13.7        To the extent permitted by the law:

i.              it is the responsibility of the Customer to inspect the Goods and satisfy himself or herself as to the condition, quality, suitability and fitness of the Goods for the Customer’s purposes prior to the use or resale of the Goods;

ii.             the Supplier shall be under no liability whatsoever for any defects in, or deterioration or failure of, the Goods or any part thereof (or any goods supplied with the Goods or any part thereof) whether due to design, workmanship or materials or to any cause whatsoever, unless the same is due to the negligence or willful default of the Supplier or its employees or agents. The Supplier shall be under no liability whatsoever from any failure of the Goods to correspond with any description.

13.8        The authority of the Customer to sell the Goods does not extend to the making of any warranties or conditions which exposes the Supplier to liability to another person and the Customer must ensure that, to the full extent permitted by law, all conditions, warranties, implied or imposed by law, are excluded and where such a condition cannot be excluded that the Supplier’s liability is limited to the full extent permitted by law.

14.          Indemnity:

14.1        The Customer shall keep the Supplier indemnified against all costs, claims, demands, expenses and liabilities of whatsoever nature, including, without prejudice, to the generality of the foregoing, claims for death, personal injury, damage to property and consequential loss (including loss of profit) which may be made against the Supplier or which the Supplier may sustain, pay or incur as a result of or in connection with the manufacture, sale, export, import or use of the Goods unless such cost, claim, demand, expense or liability shall be directly and solely attributable to any breach of contract by, or negligence of, the Supplier or a duly authorized employee or agent of the Supplier.

14.2        The Customer indemnifies on a continuing basis and on a full indemnity basis the Supplier  from and against any liability, loss, expense or demand for or arising from any false, misleading, deceptive or misdescriptive representation or statement made by the Customer in respect of the products to any person. This indemnity survives termination of this agreement by either party for any reason.

14.3        The Supplier  indemnifies the Customer on a continuing basis on a full indemnity basis from and against any liability, loss, expense or demand for or arising from any false, misleading, deceptive or misdescriptive representation or statement made by the Supplier to the Customer for or in respect of the products.
