Elexon will not be liable for any loss or damage sustained whatsoever by the Customer as a result of suspension of Services or the provision of Goods for non‐payment.


Delivery of Goods and Services

Delivery of Goods will be made, and therefore risk with respect to the Goods will pass, to the Customer at the premises of Elexon.

Elexon can assist the Customer to arrange transportation of the Goods to a location other than the premises of Elexon.

Elexon will deliver the Goods by consignment using an agent or carrier nominated by the Customer, or failing nomination at the discretion of Elexon.

The cost of freight, delivery and insurance will be the Customer’s responsibility.

Any costs for freight, delivery and insurance the Customer reasonably requests Elexon to incur will be reimbursed by the Customer on the date for payment.

Delivery of Goods to a third party nominated by the Customer is deemed to be delivery to the Customer, and the Customer will be responsible for the risk, loss or damage to the Goods as a result of such delivery.

Delivery of Goods by Elexon shall be deemed effected upon notification to the Customer that such Goods are available for collection by the Customer, an agent or carrier.

Evidence of acceptance by the Customer in the form of a signed receipt or delivery acknowledgement is not required by Elexon and the absence of such documentation is not conclusive of a failure to make delivery to the Customer.


Ownership of Goods

Despite delivery and the passing of risk pursuant to clause 7.1 and consignment pursuant to clause 7.3 above, title in the Goods will not pass to the Customer until:

The Customer has paid all amounts owing for the supply of Goods; and

The Customer has met all other obligations in respect of all contracts between Elexon and the Customer, and the Goods or the proceeds of the sale of the Goods, will be kept separate until Elexon have received all monies owed to them. Until Elexon has received payment in full for the supply of Goods, the Customer acknowledges that Elexon has a Purchase Money Security Interest which attaches over the Goods and their proceeds and a Security Interest in relation to other amounts owed by the Customer to Elexon.

Elexon may register its Purchase Money Security Interest and Security on the Personal Property Security Register established by the PPSA, and where necessary amend the registration.

Elexon and the Customer agree that sections 96 and 125 of the PPSA do not apply to the Security Interest created by these Terms.

To the extent permitted by law, if the PPSA applies, the Customer irrevocably waives any rights the Customer may have to:

receive notices or statements under sections 95, 118, 121(4), 125, 130, 132(3)(d), 132(4) and 135 of the PPSA;

redeem the Goods under section 142 of the PPSA;

reinstate the contract under section 143 of the PPSA; and

receive a verification statement (as defined in the PPSA).

Nothing in this clause prevents Elexon from taking action against the Customer for the purchase price of the Goods.


Until Elexon has received payment for the Goods in full:

the Customer agrees to take the Goods as bailee for Elexon;

the Customer must insure the Goods against all usual risks to full replacement value until ownership passes to the Customer noting on such insurance policy the interest of Elexon and any insurance monies received by the Customer in respect of Goods owned by Elexon, will be received on trust for and paid to Elexon.

The Customer must, where reasonably possible, store each delivery of Goods separately, clearly identified as the Elexon’s property and in a manner to enable the Goods to be identified and cross‐referenced to particular invoices.

The Customer may only sell, use or part with possession of Goods in the ordinary course of its business. Any sale will be as fiduciary agent for Elexon and the Customer must receive on

trust for and account to Elexon for that part of the proceeds of sale that equates to the amount owing by the Customer to Elexon for those Goods, however this agency will only extend to the obligation to account for proceeds, and Elexon will not be bound by any contract between the Customer and the Customer’s purchaser.

If the Customer uses the Goods in a manufacturing or value added process of its own or a third party, then the Customer will hold that part of the proceeds of the manufacturing or value added process as relates to the Goods on trust for Elexon. Such part will be deemed to equal in dollar terms the amount owing by the Customer to Elexon for those Goods at the time of the receipt of the proceeds.

In the event that payment in full is not made by the Customer, the Customer hereby authorises Elexon, together with its officers and employees and duly authorised agents, to enter upon the Customer’s premises where the Goods are situated to recover such Goods.

In the event that payment in full is not made by the Customer within a time frame of three (3) months of the initial invoice, the Customer hereby authorises Elexon to resell the Goods to any other interested party, with any partial payment not to be reimbursed.

Failure of Elexon to deliver the Goods within an agreed timeframe does not entitle the Customer to treat the contract as repudiated.

Unless expressly agreed between Elexon and the Customer in writing, all intellectual property and technical know‐how acquired, created, developed or produced by Elexon in course of producing any Goods or Services shall remain the sole property of Elexon. Such retention extends to any knowledge gained in developing software modules or other technical applications (circuitry) deemed to be not patentable and of common knowledge within the electronics and electrical industry.

The provisions of this clause 8 will survive termination of these Terms or any other agreement          between Elexon and the Customer for the sale of Goods, for whatever reason.



The performance by Elexon of the terms of this agreement is subject to the availability of the necessary Goods and Services to enable Elexon to fulfil the order.

Elexon will use its best efforts to fill all accepted orders in accordance with delivery dates specified by the Customer or, if no delivery dates are specified, as soon as practicable but in no event will Elexon be liable for any claim, cost, loss, expense, damage resulting from any delay in delivery or performance or for any failure to deliver the delivery date due to causes beyond its control.



Elexon warrants that any Goods or Services sold to the Customer will upon consignment by Elexon be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of one (1) year in the case of new Goods and 90 days in the case of repairs, from the date of the invoice (or original invoice if more than one invoice issued).

If a defect appears which the Customer believes is covered by clause 10.1 above, Elexon at its option will repair, replace or issue credit based on an equitable adjustment in price to the Customer. Replacement parts or Goods will be furnished on an exchange basis and will be either reconditioned or new. All defective parts will be returned to Elexon and will become Elexon’s property.
