    3. Our invoices are due for payment on presentation. The time for payment shall be of the essence of this contract. If you fail to make any payment within [30] days of the date of the invoice then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to us, we shall be entitled to:

If we fail to deliver the Goods (or any instalment) for any reason other than any cause beyond our reasonable control, and we are liable to you, our liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to you (in the cheapest available market) of similar goods to replace those not delivered over the price of the Goods.

If the proceeds of sale are insufficient to satisfy your debt to us we will seek to recover the outstanding debt from you.
    5. Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by us to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Conditions or any claim by you in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle you to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.

  7. Risk and property
    1. As soon as we have delivered the Goods you will be responsible for them. If you delay the delivery of the Goods our responsibility for everything other than damage due to our negligence will end on the date upon which we agreed to deliver the Goods.
