The Product shall be supplied in its standard version together with SESAM Container's relevant standard documentation and instruction manuals as appropriate. Alternative versions, finishes, colours, special packing and additional documentation may be supplied at extra charge, as agreed in writing.
The Product is not warranted to be fit for any particular purpose, unless and to the extent such particular purpose has been expressly specified and warranted by SESAM Container in writing.
3.2 Delivery. Passing of Risk
Any agreed trade term shall be construed in accordance with the INCOTERMS® in force at the formation of the Contract. If no trade term has been specifically agreed, the delivery shall be Ex Works (EXW) at the place named by the Supplier.
Whenever SESAM Container is responsible for the delivery of the Products, the Purchaser shall inspect the Products upon receipt and

3.3 Acceptance Tests
No acceptance test will be performed in accordance with Clauses 6-9 if the parties do not expressly agree that such test shall be performed.
3.4 Time for delivery
SESAM Container will give the purchaser a non-binding estimate for the delivery of Products when the Products are ordered. A binding delivery date or period of delivery will only be given of SESAM Container if the Purchaser demands that in writing.
Unless otherwise agreed, the purchase price shall be paid to SESAM Container no later than thirty (30) days from the date of the delivery and the second paragraph of Clause 19 is not applicable. Time of payment is of the essence of the contract and SESAM Container reserves the right to suspend the provision of Products to the Purchaser where any amounts are overdue under the contract or under any other contract until all such amounts have been paid. No queries concerning an invoice will be considered more than 14 days from the date of its issue.
Payment shall be made in the currency in which the purchase price was quoted by SESAM Container.
Where SESAM Container has entered into a "Credit Agreement" with the Purchaser, the Credit Agreement with its credit limit shall form part of the contract. To the extent permitted by applicable law, if in SESAM Container's reasonable opinion there are grounds for doubting the creditworthiness of the Purchaser at any time, such as but not limited to, the Purchaser's failure to pay SESAM Container's invoice on this contract or any other contract when due and/or the Purchaser exceeding its agreed credit limit with SESAM Container, then SESAM Container may, refuse to proceed with orders or suspend delivery of Products to the Purchaser, under this contract and any other contract, agreement or arrangement entered into with the Purchaser whether independent of or connected to this contract without being in breach of contract and without incurring any liability to the Purchaser until SESAM Container is paid for the relevant Products or the parties otherwise resolve the issue.
The purchase price is strictly net and exclusive of VAT and similar.
3.7 Retention of Title
Until title in the Product has passed to the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall keep the Product and any part thereof in the Purchaser's
possession clearly marked or otherwise identified as being SESAM Container's and store it separately from the Purchaser's own plant and equipment. SESAM Container shall be entitled at any time during normal business hours to enter the Purchaser's premises in order to inspect the Product and ensure that it is so marked or clearly identified.
Should the contract be terminated by SESAM Container for any reason before title in the Product has passed to the Purchaser, or SESAM Container has grounds for doubting the creditworthiness of the purchaser (cf. Article 0), SESAM Container shall be entitled at any time during normal business hours to enter the Purchaser's premises in order to recover the Product. SESAM Container reserves the right to dispose of any Product so recovered.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, legal and beneficial title to the Product shall remain with SESAM Container until such time as SESAM Container has received payment of the purchase price for the Products due under the contract and any other sums due (together with any interest which may have accrued) in respect of any other goods or services previously or subsequently supplied by SESAM Container to the Purchaser under any other agreement. Where such payments have been received by SESAM Container title shall pass to the Purchaser.
Notwithstanding any appropriation by the Purchaser to the contrary, all payments made by the Purchaser to SESAM Container shall be appropriated first to the Products which have been resold by the Purchaser and then to the Products which remain in the Purchaser's possession or control.
If the Purchaser resells any Products in which title has not passed to the Purchaser, with respect to the proceeds of such resale only, the resale shall (as between SESAM Container and the Purchaser only) be made by the Purchaser as agent for SESAM Container.
For the avoidance of doubt, risk in the Product shall pass to the Purchaser at the time specified in the applicable INCOTERMS. From the time when risk in the Products passes until the time when title passes to the Purchaser in accordance with Article 3.5.3, the Purchaser shall insure the Products for their full value with a reputable insurer. Until title in the Products passes to the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall hold the proceeds of any sale or claim on such insurance policy on trust for SESAM Container and shall immediately account to SESAM Container with the proceeds.
The Purchaser shall keep all information communicated to the Purchaser in connection with this contract, or otherwise concerning
SESAM Container's business, secret and confidential, and will not use the same except for the purposes of performing this contract.
