Yorkshire Water shall, at its option, replace the defective Goods, or refund the price of the defective Goods in full.

(a)            the Customer makes any further use of such Goods after giving notice in accordance with clause 5.2;

(c)            the Customer alters such Goods without the written consent of Yorkshire Water;

(d)            the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or

(e)            the Goods differ from the Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.

The Customer is entirely responsible if the Goods are not spread correctly and in accordance with Yorkshire Water’s or the Agent’s instructions, or if the Goods are applied onto an area of land that has not been sampled and approved for use.

  1. TITLE AND RISK

6.1            The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on completion of delivery.

6.2            Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the Goods have been spread or utilised and the Agent has received payment in full (when the payment has cleared, using one of the payment methods described in clause 7.5) for the Goods.

6.3            Until the Goods are spread or utilised, the Customer must:

(a)            store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer;

(b)            maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and in accordance with any applicable law or instruction from Yorkshire Water or the Agent; and

7.2            Any sums payable by the Customer under these Conditions should be paid directly to the Agent and not to Yorkshire Water.
