If Customer does not, or indicates to GTL Renewable that it will not, take or accept delivery, then the Products will be deemed to have been delivered when GTL Renewable was willing to deliver them.
GTL Renewable reserves the right to deliver the Products by instalments. Each instalment may be invoiced separately and will be deemed to be a separate contract under the same provisions as the main Contract.
GTL Renewable may suspend or cancel delivery of the Products if GTL Renewable reasonably believes that the Products may cause injury or damage (including for technical, scientific, medical or efficacy reasons) or may infringe the intellectual property rights of any person, or if payments owing from Customer to GTL Renewable remain outstanding. No such suspension or cancellation will in any way constitute admission of liability or fault on GTL Renewable’s part.
5. CONTAINERS AND PALLETS
Any pallets or containers used for the delivery, storage or display of the Products are not included in the Price unless otherwise specified and will remain the property of their owner.
The Customer must promptly return or exchange the pallets and containers in its custody on the day of delivery (unless otherwise agreed with GTL Renewable) or reimburse GTL Renewable the cost of replacement or repair of lost or damaged pallets or containers.
GTL Renewable may charge a deposit to Customer for a pallet or container which will be credited in full if the pallet or container is returned to GTL Renewable within 3 months of dispatch and is in good order and condition.
6. RISK AND TITLE
Legal and beneficial ownership in the Products will not pass to Customer until Customer has paid in full the Price for those Products.
Risk of loss of or damage to the Products will remain with GTL Renewable only until the first of the passing of title to the Products to Customer, or delivery of the Products by GTL Renewable to Customer in accordance with clause 4. Thereafter risk of damage to, or loss or deterioration of, the Products from any cause whatsoever passes to Customer.
Until all outstanding monies have been paid to GTL Renewable for Products delivered to Customer:
(a) Customer must separately store those Products in such a way that makes it clear that they are the property of GTL Renewable;
(b) in the event of a default (specified in clause 13), GTL Renewable or its representative will be entitled, without the necessity of giving any notice, to enter premises occupied by Customer to search for and remove any of those Products without in any way being liable to Customer, and may dispose of or retain such Products as GTL Renewable sees fit without being required to give notice or account to Customer. If the Products or any of them are wholly or partially attached to or incorporated in any other product, GTL Renewable may (when practical) disconnect them in any way necessary to remove the Products; and
(c) all costs and expenses incurred by GTL Renewable as a result of taking action in accordance with clause 6.3(b), together with transportation and storage charges, must be paid by Customer to GTL Renewable on demand.
Until title to the Products passes to Customer, Customer acknowledges and agrees:
(a) that the Products supplied and not resold are held by it as a bailee for GTL Renewable;
(b) Customer may resell the Products without the right of Customer to bind GTL Renewable to any liability to any third party (whether contractual or otherwise);
(c) any resale of the Products must only be made on the condition the purchaser is expressly made aware of the existence of GTL Renewable rights under this clause 6;
(d) if the Products have been resold by Customer, Customer will hold so much of the proceeds of sale as does not exceed the outstanding monies on trust for GTL Renewable immediately when they are receivable or received;
(e) when the proceeds held in trust for GTL Renewable under clause 6.4(d) are received they must either be paid immediately to GTL Renewable or held in a separate bank account as trustee for GTL Renewable and they must not be used by Customer in any other way whatsoever; and
(f) the authority conferred on Customer by clause 6.4(b) may be revoked by written notice from GTL Renewable at any time if GTL Renewable deems the credit of Customer to be unsatisfactory or if Customer is in default in the performance of its obligations under any Contract, these Terms and Conditions or any other agreement between GTL Renewable and Customer.
This clause 6 creates a purchase money security interest in the Products, any goods in which the Products are used as a component, and all proceeds from their respective resale by Customer. Customer must sign all documents and take all steps as GTL Renewable may reasonably require in connection with the registration, perfection and enforcement of this purchase money security interest. Customer waives its right to be provided with verification statements pursuant to section 157 of the Personal Properties Securities Act 2009 (Cth).
GTL Renewable warrants that all Products manufactured by it and supplied to Customer will, subject to this clause 7, comply with GTL Renewable specifications for those Products (or if no such specifications exist, will be free of defects in materials and manufacture), for a period of 24 months from the date of delivery of the Products by GTL Renewable to Customer (the Warranty Period).
If a Product does not comply with the warranty set out in clause 7.1 and Customer notifies GTL Renewable in writing of the defect during the Warranty Period within 10 Business Days of the defect coming to its notice, GTL Renewable will, at its option, either exchange the Product for a new Product, or refund the Price paid for the Product.
When a refund is given pursuant to clause 7.2, the Product for which the refund is provided must, at GTL Renewable option, be destroyed or returned to GTL Renewable by Customer, at Customer's expense, and if returned becomes the property of GTL Renewable.
The warranty in clause 7.1 does not apply:
(a) as a result of any acts or omissions by any person other than GTL Renewable or any external cause;
(b) if the defect is due to the Product being used for purposes other than for purposes for which it was intended or which do not fall within the scope of any regulatory approval;
(c) to a Product that has been modified without the written permission of GTL Renewable; or
(d) if the Product has not been stored or transported in accordance with GTL Renewable recommendations.
The benefit of the warranty in clause 7.1 is personal to the Customer and is not assignable without the prior written consent of GTL Renewable.
Except as expressly set out in these Terms and Conditions, the rights set out in this clause 7 are the sole and exclusive remedies of Customer with respect to defective Products.
Except as expressly set out in these Terms and Conditions, and subject to any terms, warranties or conditions that by law may not be excluded (including those under sections 51, 52 and 53 of the Australian Consumer Law), all conditions, warranties, terms, and obligations expressed or implied by law or otherwise relating to the performance of GTL Renewable obligations under these Terms and Conditions, or any goods or services supplied, or to be supplied, by GTL Renewable under these Terms and Conditions, are excluded.
Credits sought for returned Products are at GTL Renewable’ discretion. Where accepted, GTL Renewable may charge a reasonable administration fee in respect of all returned Products. For the avoidance of doubt, no Products for which the shelf life has expired will be accepted for return.
Products, in respect of which a credit is sought and approved by GTL Renewable, must be returned to GTL Renewable premises freight free in good and saleable condition in the original containers and packaging in which they were supplied, and accompanied by the number and date of GTL Renewable supplying invoice.

Any material supplied by GTL Renewable for advertising and display is issued to Customer for use in its own business and is not intended for circulation or distribution to the public. Such material will remain the property of GTL Renewable, must be returned by Customer to GTL Renewable upon request and must not be modified without GTL Renewable’ prior consent.
10. ADVERSE EXPERIENCE REPORTING AND RECALLS
If GTL Renewable or Customer becomes aware of any defect, fault or other condition, actual, potential or threatened, in any Products in which Customer has taken possession such that they should not be offers for sale to the public ("adverse experience") having regard to the nature and the extent of the threat, then that party must immediately give notice to the other party of the Products affected by reference to invoice numbers, product descriptions, batch codes, best and before/used buy date codes, APN's, items code numbers, quantities supplied, date of possession and any other unique identifier.
The Customer agrees to co-operate to the fullest extent possible to diminish any risk to the public from the adverse experience, which includes the following:
(a) removing the Products that may be affected by the adverse experience from offer for sale to the public;
(b) complying with all laws, regulations and notice requirements in relation to product recalls;

If an Insolvency Event occurs in relation to Customer any other event occurs which gives GTL Renewable reasonable grounds for doubting the credit of Customer, GTL Renewable may by notice to Customer, at its option and without prejudice to any other right it may have, suspend or terminate a Contract or require payment before or on delivery of the Products (notwithstanding the terms of payment applicable to the Products), or cancel any undelivered or uncompleted Products under a Contract, and may retain any monies paid by Customer in relation to the Contract and apply such monies against any loss or damage incurred by it in relation to the default by Customer.
