5. Warranties and Liabilities

5.1 The Company warrants to the Client that the Service will be provided using reasonable care and skill and, as far as reasonably possible, in accordance with the Contract. However any date or time stated in the Contract shall constitute a statement of expectation only and shall not be binding. Accordingly the time of supply of the Service shall not be of the essence of the Contract. Where the Company supplies in connection with the provision of the Services any services or any goods (including Output Material) supplied by a third party, the Company does not give any warranty, guarantee or other term as to their quality, fitness for purpose or otherwise, but shall, where possible, assign to the Client the benefit of any warranty, guarantee or indemnity given by the person supplying the services or goods to the Company.

5.2 Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by the Company's negligence, or as expressly provided in these Conditions, the Company shall not be liable to the Client by reason of any representation (unless fraudulent), or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law including negligence, or under the express terms of the Contract, for any loss of profit or any indirect, special or consequential loss, damage, costs, expenses or other claims (whether caused by the negligence of the Company, its servants or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the provision of the Service or its use by the Client, any act, omission, neglect or default of the Company, its servants or agents, in the performance of the contract and the entire liability of the Company under or in connection with the Contract shall not exceed the amount of the Company's charges for the provision of the Service in any calendar year except as expressly provided in these Conditions.

5.4 Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing nothing herein contained shall operate to exclude or restrict liability for breach any obligation arising from the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 or the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended) as against the Client if he is dealing as a consumer (as defined by section 12 of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977)

5.7 The Company shall not consider any claim made against it in respect of any alleged failure or default in the provision or Service unless the Client notified the Company within seven days of the relevant failure. The Company's liability in such circumstances shall be limited to the cost of rectifying the failure or the net price at which the Service is provided to the Client, whichever is the lesser.

5.8 If the Company shall be prevented or hindered from supplying the Service or any part thereof by any circumstances beyond its reasonable control performance of the Contract shall be suspended for so long as the Company is so prevented or hindered provided that if the performance of the Contract shall be suspended for more than six consecutive calendar months the Company shall be entitled by notice in writing to the Client forthwith to terminate the Contract or cancel any outstanding part thereof and in such circumstances the Client shall pay at the rate specified in these conditions for all the Services supplied to the actual date of such termination. The Company shall not have any liability to the Client for any direct or consequential loss or damage suffered by the Client as a result of the Company's inability to perform its obligations under the Contract in these circumstances mentioned above

6. Cancellation/ Termination

6.1 Where the Contract is for the provision of Consultancy Services either party shall be entitled to terminate the Contract at any time by giving not less than three months' written notice to the Company.

6.2 If the Client terminates the Contract other than in accordance with Condition 6.1 or where the Contract is for collection or delivery of waste paper only and the Client cancels any Contract (in which case the Client shall pay to the Company at the rates specified above for all Services supplied by the Company up to and including the date of cancellation) the Client shall further indemnify the Company in full against all loss (including loss of profit) costs, damages, charges, and expenses incurred by the Company as a result of cancellation.

6.3 Either party may (without limiting any other remedy) at any time terminate the Contract by giving written notice to the other if the other commits any breach of these Conditions and (if capable of remedy) fails to remedy the breach within 30 days after being required by written notice to do so, or if the other goes into liquidation, or has a receiver or an administrative receiver appointed over the whole or any part of its undertaking or assets or (in the case of an individual or firm) becomes bankrupt, makes a voluntary arrangement with his or its creditors or has a receiver or administrator appointed or any order is made or a resolution is passed or analogous proceedings are taken for the winding up of that party.

7. General

7.2 These Conditions (together with the terms, if any, set out in the Proposal Form) constitute the entire agreement between the parties, supersede any previous agreement or understanding and may not be varied except in writing between the parties. All other terms and conditions, express or implied by statute or otherwise, are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.

7.3 Nothing in this Agreement shall create or be deemed to create a partnership between the parties

7.4 Any notice required or permitted to be given by either party to the other under these Conditions shall be in writing addressed to the other party at its registered office or principal place of business or such other address as may at the relevant time have been notified pursuant to this provision to the party giving the notice.

7.5 No failure or delay by either party in exercising any of its rights under the Contract shall be deemed to be a waiver of that right, and no waiver by either party of any breach of the Contract by the other shall be considered as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.

7.6 If any provision of these Conditions is held by any competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, the validity of the other provisions of these Conditions and the remainder of the provision in question shall not be affected.

7.7 English law shall apply to the Contract, and the parties agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

8. Additional Provisions where Goods are Supplied

8.1 The legal and beneficial ownership of bins, skips etc. supplied under the Contract for the provision of the Service shall at all times remain the property of the Company (or its relevant contractor) and the Client shall hold such items in a fiduciary capacity and shall account to the Company for all damages to or misuse thereof and in particular shall keep them identifiable as the goods of the Company.

8.2 Where goods are to be sold to the Client by the Company pursuant to the Contract the following additional conditions will also apply.

8.2.1 Delivery of such goods will take place at the premises of the Client or if some other place for delivery is agreed by the Company delivering the goods to that place.

8.2.2 The Client undertakes to inspect or to procure the inspection of such goods at the earliest opportunity after delivery and in any event within 48 hours of delivery. Any claim for shortfall in a delivery of the goods or claim that the goods do not comply with the Client's order must be notified in writing within 7 days of delivery. Failing to make any such claim within such a period shall constitute unqualified acceptance of the goods and waiver by the Client of all claims relating to non-delivery of the goods or delivery of the wrong goods or error on the Company's invoice as the case may be.

8.2.3 Risk in the goods sold shall pass to the Client on delivery provided that the Client shall keep such goods fully insured against all risks throughout the period between the risk therein passing to the Client and the property therein ceasing to remain with the Company and shall if required in writing by the Company produce evidence of such insurance to the Company.

8.2.4 Not withstanding delivery of such goods the property in the goods shall remain with the Company until the Client has paid the Company in full in cash or cleared funds for the goods and the Client shall hold such goods in a fiduciary capacity as the Company's bailee until such payment provided that until property in the goods has passed to the client in accordance with this condition (other than that prejudice to the Company's other rights) the Client shall (unless otherwise agreed by the Company in writing) take all reasonable steps to ensure that all goods which are in possession or control of the client or the client's agent or customer are labelled or otherwise marked or kept apart from all other goods so that they may be readily identified or separated from other goods of the Client and third parties. Further the Company should have the right to require the Client to deliver up the goods and if the client fails to do so to repossess the goods and for that purpose to go upon any premises of the Client or any third party where the goods are stored.

8.3 While every effort will be made to ensure that the quality of the goods is in compliance with the relevant order the Client acknowledges that by the nature of the goods supplied there may be variations in quality and notwithstanding any other of these Conditions the Company shall not be liable to the Client in any respect whatsoever in connection with any such variation which falls within margins commonly accepted in the waste management industry.
