3. Ownership of Goods
3.1. Nothing in this agreement is intended to have the effect of contracting out of any applicable provisions of the CCA or the FTA in each of the States and Territories of Australia, except to the extent permitted by those Acts where applicable.
4.1. The Customer creates a security interest in favour of The supplier by way of charging all of the Customer’s rights, property and undertaking of whatever kind and wherever situated and whether present or future for the purpose of securing payment of all amounts that, at any time and for any reason or circumstance and whether at law or otherwise and whether or not of a type within the contemplation of the parties at the date of this Agreement, are payable, are owing but not currently payable, are contingently owing, or remain unpaid by the Customer to The supplier. If the Customer fails to pay any amount owing to The supplier by the due date, The supplier may appoint one or more receivers to the Customer’s property and undertaking, and any such receiver may do anything that a receiver could do under law. The Customer agrees that if demand is made by The supplier, the Customer receiving such a demand will immediately execute a real property mortgage or other instrument of security, or consent to caveat, as required, and against the event that the Customer fails to do so within a reasonable time of being so requested, the Customer irrevocably and by way of security, appoints any credit manager or solicitor engaged by The supplier to be its true and lawful attorney to execute and register such instruments.
4.2. Goods supplied by the supplier to the Customer are at the Customer’s risk immediately on the earlier of delivery to the Customer or into the Customer’s custody, including its carrier or forwarder. The Customer must insure the goods at its cost from delivery of the goods until they are paid for in full against such risks as are usual or common to insure against in a business of a similar nature to the Customer.
4.3. Property in the goods supplied by the supplier to the Customer does not pass to the Customer until those goods have been paid for in full. The supplier may take repossession of, and the customer will return to the supplier, any goods for which it has not been paid for in full in accordance with these terms and conditions. In the meantime, the Customer takes custody of the goods and retains them only as fiduciary agent and bailee of the supplier. Until goods have been paid for in full;
a. to the extent possible, the Customer must store the goods in a manner that shows clearly they are the property of The supplier, maintain records relating to the goods, secure the goods from risk, damage and theft and ensure that the goods are kept in good and serviceable condition;
b. the Customer may sell the goods, in the ordinary course of its business, but only as fiduciary agent of The supplier. The Customer must not represent to any third party that the Customer is acting in any capacity for or on behalf of The supplier and the Customer has no authority to bind The supplier to any contract or otherwise assume any liability for or on behalf of The supplier. The supplier also has a security interest in all proceeds of the goods, and the Customer receives all proceeds in trust for The supplier and must keep the proceeds in a separate bank account (which is not subject to any security interest in favour of another person) until all liability to The supplier is discharged;
c. if the Customer uses the goods in some manufacturing or construction process of its own or of a third party, The supplier also has a security interest in all proceeds of the goods, and the Customer must hold in trust for The supplier that part of the proceeds of the manufacturing or construction process as is equal to the amount owing by the Customer to The supplier at the time of receipt of the proceeds.
d. The supplier may register any security interest created under any provisions of these terms and conditions, and may give any notification in connection with a security interest. The Customer must do anything The supplier asks and considers necessary for the purposes of ensuring that a security interest created under these terms and conditions is registrable, enforceable, perfected and otherwise effective (such as providing information, obtaining consents, signing and producing documents, producing receipts and getting documents completed and signed).
e. The supplier need not give any notice under the Personal Property Securities Act (Commonwealth) (“PPSA”) (including a notice of a verification statement) unless the notice is required by the PPSA and cannot be excluded. The supplier need not comply with any of the provisions of the PPSA that would otherwise apply to the extent the law permits them to be excluded. The Customer may not exercise rights under the provisions relating to reinstatement of security interest of the PPSA to the extent the law permits them to be excluded.
5. Claims, Cancellations and Returns
5.1. The Customer shall notify the supplier in writing of any defects in the goods within ten (10) days from supply. The supplier shall only be liable for correction of such claims as are notified and agreed within the stipulated time.

5.2. Cancellations are accepted only if payment of the cost of goods, labour and material expended to date of cancellation plus an administration charge of 10% are paid on that date.

5.4. Without prejudice to any other remedies the Supplier may have, if at any time the Customer is in breach of any obligation (including those relating to payment) the Supplier may suspend or terminate the supply of Goods to the Customer and any of its other obligations under the terms and conditions. The Supplier will not be liable to the Customer for any loss or damage the Customer suffers because the Supplier has exercised its rights under this clause.
5.5. Without prejudice to the Supplier’s other remedies at law the Supplier shall be entitled to cancel all or any part of any order of the Customer which remains unfulfilled and all amounts owing to the Supplier shall, whether or not due for payment, become immediately payable in the event that:
