7.0 Delivery dates acknowledged by the Company are non-binding estimates only, based upon the best available information concerning factory lead times and transportation schedules. Therefore, orders may be shipped on the date estimated, prior to the estimated date with the customer’s approval or after the estimated date after notification to the customer.
7.1 Estimated delivery dates will be considered as acceptable by the customer unless disagreement is notified to the Company in writing within ten (10) days of confirmation.

9. Reservation of Title
9.0 Notwithstanding delivery to the customer, the Company shall be legally and beneficially entitled to the ownership of the goods until payment of the purchase price has been made in full. Until such payment, and subject to the following provisions, the customer holds the goods as bailee of the Company and owes to the Company the normal fiduciary obligations of a bailee by way of custody in respect of the goods. Insofar as the buyer shall, or shall purport to, offer for sale and sell the goods, it shall do so only at the best obtainable price in the ordinary course of its business as principal and not as agent for the Company. The Company shall, by reason of the said relationship of bailment between the customer (as bailee) and itself (as bailor), be and remain legally and beneficially entitled to the proceeds of sale and the customer shall ensure that all the proceeds of sale are kept by or on behalf of the customer in a separate and identifiable form (and the proceeds shall not be paid into an overdrawn bank account). Upon receipt of the proceeds of sale, the customer shall discharge the debt due to the Company and shall not use or deal with the proceeds of sale in any way whatsoever until such debt has been discharged.
9.1 From delivery, or placement into storage in a Korn Wall Limited or separate facility, all risks for the goods pass to the customer.
9.2 When full or partial payment is not made on the due date, the Company can, by registered letter; request return of goods already delivered without losing any rights of suit. The Company can cancel the order(s) by registered letter.
9.3 If any goods supplied by the Company are incorporated in or used as material for other goods before payment to the Company, the property in the whole of those other goods shall be and remain with the Company until payment shall have been received or the other goods have been sold and all the Company's rights under this agreement in the material shall extend to those other goods. The Company's right to the material and/or the other goods is recognised in this agreement and it is the intention of both parties that ownership of that material and/or goods shall vest in the Company.
10. Insolvency and Bankruptcy
10.0 When a customer is declared insolvent or in a state of bankruptcy before or after shipment of an incompletely paid order, the sale automatically is voided unless otherwise notified in writing by the Company.
11.0 All Company products are inspected before shipment. Customers should similarly inspect all items at the same time of delivery of installation. Claims for damage in delivery must be sent by registered mail to the transporter within two (2) working days of the delivery.

12.0 No item may be returned to the Company without written consent and any returns must be handled in accordance with Company shipping instructions.
