This clause 3 shall survive termination of the Contract.

4.5.1 the Order shall be varied accordingly; and
4.5.2 Hunters may request immediate payment of any price increases owing to the requested changes to the bank account provided by Hunters in writing.

Hunters shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Goods to the extent that such failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Customer’s failure to provide Hunters with adequate delivery instructions, an adequate Delivery Location or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
5.8 If the Customer fails to accept delivery of the Goods within three Business Days of Hunters notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready for delivery, then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or Hunters’ failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract in respect of the Goods:

5.10 Hunters may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.

6.1.1 conform in all material respects with their description; and
6.1.2 be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship.
6.2 The Customer shall inspect the Goods on delivery and shall give notice in writing or by telephone to Hunters within 3 days of Delivery if, upon visual inspection, the Goods are damaged or are defective (Defective Goods Notice).

Hunters shall, at its option, repair or replace the defective Good(s).

6.4.1 the Customer fails to provide a Defective Goods Notice in accordance with clause 6.2;
6.4.2 the Customer makes any further use of such Goods after providing a Defective Goods Notice;
6.4.3 the defect arises because the Customer failed to follow Hunters’ oral or written instructions as to the storage, commissioning, installation, use and maintenance of the Goods or (if there are none) good trade practice regarding the same;
6.4.4 the defect arises as a result of Hunters following any drawing, design or Specification supplied by the Customer;
6.4.5 the Customer alters or repairs such Goods without the written consent of Hunters;
6.4.6 the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or
6.4.7 the Goods differ from their description and any applicable Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.
6.5 Except as provided in this clause 6, Hunters shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 6.1.
6.6 The terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract.
