The Seller shall not be bound to deliver the Goods until the Buyer has paid for them in full.

If any sum payable under this agreement is not paid when due, interest shall be payable and calculated on a daily basis and compounded quarterly from the due date until payment at a rate of 6.00% above the base rate of Barclays Bank plc in force from time to time and shall accrue at such a rate after as well as before any judgment.

Cancellation

At any time before delivery the Seller may, by written notice to the Buyer, increase the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost to itself provided this is due to factors which (a) are beyond its reasonable control and (b) occur after this agreement. In these circumstances the Buyer shall be entitled to cancel this agreement by notice to the Seller in writing within 20 days of any such notice from the Seller but if the Buyer does not do so the increased price, as notified, shall be payable by the Buyer.

The Seller may, by giving written notice, cancel this agreement at any time before the Goods are delivered, provided that the Seller promptly repays any sums, which the Buyer may have paid in respect of the Price or any applicable VAT payable on the Price.  The Seller shall not be liable for any loss or damage whatever arising from such cancellation.
