4.6 If the Customer fails to take delivery of the Goods within five Business Days of the Supplier notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready, then except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or by the Supplier’s failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract in respect of the Goods:

5.3.3 the defect arises as a result of the Supplier following any drawing, design or Goods Specification supplied by the Customer;
5.3.4 the Customer alters or repairs such Goods without the prior written consent of the Supplier or in any case of intervention on the Goods by third parties without prior written consent of the Supplier;
5.3.5 the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions; or
5.3.6 the Goods differ from the Goods Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory standards.
5.4 Except as provided in this clause 5, the Supplier shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1.

6.4.1 it does so as principal and not as the Supplier’s agents; and
6.4.2 title to the Goods shall pass from the Supplier to the Customer immediately before the time at which resale by the Customer occurs and the payment of the price due by the customer to the supplier will become due immediately.
6.5 If before title to the Goods passes to the Customer, the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 13.2.2. to clause 13.2.4, then, without limiting any other right or remedy the Supplier may have:
