2      CONTRACT TERMS, VARIATIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS

2.1   Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Barista & Co, the Purchase Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and the Retailer acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by or on behalf of Barista & Co which is not set out in the Purchase Contract.

2.2   Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter, or advertising produced by Barista & Co and any descriptions or illustrations contained in Barista & Co's catalogues or brochures or on Barista & Co’s website are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the goods described in them. They shall not form part of the Purchase Contract or have any contractual force.

3      RETAILER’S REPRESENTATIONS

3.1   The Retailer warrants that it is acting wholly in the course of its trade, business or profession and consequently, as a trader (rather than as a consumer) for the purposes of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

3.2   The Retailer shall store the Products in clean, dry, well-ventilated conditions and shall maintain and use the Products in accordance with any recommendations made by Barista & Co or instructions supplied by Barista & Co or otherwise in accordance with best industry practice.

4      QUOTATIONS AND PRICES

4.1   Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Barista & Co shall be entitled to increase its prices at any time to take account of any increase in the cost to Barista & Co of purchasing manufacturing, working on or supplying any Products. This shall include any delay caused by any instructions of the Retailer or failure of the Retailer to give Barista & Co adequate or accurate information or instructions or any change in labour costs, taxes, customs duties, freight charges, insurance premiums or foreign exchange rates and such increased prices ruling at the date of dispatch by Barista & Co shall be substituted for the previous contract price. In particular, but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, if the contract price is specified or payable in the Euro or in a currency other than pounds sterling (‘the Payment Currency’), Barista & Co shall be entitled to increase the contract price to take account of any change in the exchange rates between pounds sterling and the Payment Currency (as evidenced by the exchange rates quoted by Santander UK plc) which is to the detriment of Barista & Co and which occurs between the acceptance of the order and the actual payment of the contract price.

4.2   All prices are quoted are exclusive of VAT and the Retailer shall pay any and all taxes, duties and other governmental charges payable in respect of the Products.

4.3   The price of the Products is exclusive of the costs and charges of inspection, packaging, [delivery] insurance and transport of the Products, which shall be invoiced to the Retailer.

5      PAYMENT

5.1   Subject to paragraph 5.2, payment to Barista & Co shall be made by the Retailer in full in the Contract Currency before any products shall be issued or dispatched or services rendered. Once payment has been received in full, Barista & Co shall (by sending an email to the email address provided by the Retailer) provide an estimated delivery date for dispatch of the products. The parties hereby agree that Barista & Co’s obligations under these Conditions are wholly conditional upon such payment being made. All such payments may at Barista & Co’s option be appropriated to any contract between Barista & Co and the Retailer. 

5.2   Barista & Co may, in its sole discretion, designate to the Retailer approved credit terms and in any such case, unless otherwise specified in writing by Barista & Co, payment shall be made by Barista & Co in the Contract Currency not later than thirty (30) calendar days after the relevant date notwithstanding that property in the Goods has not passed to the Retailer. For the purposes of this paragraph 5.2: 

(a)   ‘the Goods’ shall mean the whole or any instalment of the Products which Barista & Co has agreed to supply;

(b)   the ‘relevant date’ shall mean the date on which

(i)     the invoice is dated; or

(ii)    Barista & Co despatches the Goods; or 

(iii)   the Retailer takes delivery of the Goods; or

(iv)   the Retailer defaults fails to provide an address for delivery as required by the Purchase Contract or (if it is agreed that the Retailer will take delivery at Barista & Co’s premises) he fails to take delivery in accordance with such agreement;

whichever shall first occur;

5.3   Barista & Co’s preferred payment method is via bank transfer or credit/debit card in the Contract Currency (or by such other payment method or currency as Barista & Co shall specify in writing from time to time) (“Preferred Payment Method”) In the event that the Retailer makes payment to Barista & Co in any manner other than the Preferred Payment Method, then the Retailer shall:

(a)    pay to Barista & Co a handling charge equal to two and a half percent (2.5%) of the amount paid other than by the Preferred Payment Method; and

(b)    indemnify Barista & Co in respect of all costs and expenses payable by Barista & Co to third parties (including, but not limited to, commission payable to a bank or other financial institution) in respect of the conversion of the amount paid into the Contract Currency.

5.4   Without prejudice to any other rights it may have Barista & Co reserves the right to charge interest at the rate of four percent (4%) per annum above Santander UK plc base rate from time to time or at the rate specified from time to time under the provisions of Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1988 (whichever is the higher) on all overdue amounts. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Retailer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount. Payment of the full purchase price pursuant to paragraph 6.2 and paragraph 8.2 shall include interest payable in accordance with this paragraph 5.4. 

5.5   The Retailer shall pay all amounts due under the Purchase Contract in full without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and the Retailer shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against Barista & Co in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part. Barista & Co may at any time, without limiting any other rights or remedies it may have, set off any amount owing to it by the Retailer against any amount payable by Barista & Co to the Retailer. 

5.6   The Retailer shall pay to Barista & Co on demand an amount equal to any costs and expenses incurred (on a full indemnity basis) by Barista & Co in recovering from the Retailer any monies due and payable by the Retailer to Barista & Co. Payment of the full purchase price pursuant to paragraph 6.2 and paragraph 8.2 shall include any sums payable by the Retailer in accordance with this paragraph 5.6.

6      FAILURE TO PAY, CANCELLATION OR DEFERMENT

6.1   For the purposes of this paragraph 6, an “Intervening Event” shall be any of the following:

(a)    failure by the Retailer to make any payment when it becomes due;

(b)    breach by the Retailer of any of the terms or conditions of the Purchase Contract; or 

(c)    the Retailer suffering an Insolvency Event.

6.2   If an Intervening Event occurs, Barista & Co may within a reasonable time thereafter, defer or cancel any further deliveries, stop any Products in transit and treat the Purchase Contract as terminated but without prejudice to its rights to the full purchase price for Products delivered (which shall become immediately due) and damages for any loss suffered in consequence of such termination.

6.3   Cancellation by the Retailer will only be accepted at the discretion of Barista & Co and in any case on condition that any costs or expenses incurred by Barista & Co up to the date of cancellation and all loss or damage resulting in Barista & Co by reason of such cancellation will be paid by the Retailer to Barista & Co immediately on demand. Acceptance of such cancellation will only be binding on Barista & Co if in writing and signed by a director of Barista & Co (or other signatory with delegated responsibility of the board).

6.4   Any costs or expenses incurred by Barista & Co due to suspension or deferment of delivery of any Products by the Retailer or in the event that the Retailer defaults in collecting, or giving instructions for the delivery of any Products will be payable by the Retailer immediately on demand.

7      DELIVERY

7.1   For all Purchase Contracts other than International Supply Contracts and unless otherwise specified in writing by Barista & Co, Barista & Co shall deliver the Products or shall procure that a Barista & Co Affiliate shall deliver to the location set out in the Order or to such other location as the Parties may agree at any time after Barista & Co notifies the Retailer that the Products are ready.

7.2   If the Purchase Contract requires the Retailer to take delivery of the Products at Barista & Co’s premises or such other location as may be specified by Barista & Co then: 

(a)    for the purposes of this sub-paragraph ‘the Products’ shall mean the whole or any instalment of the Products and ‘the collection date’ shall mean the date on which the Products are or will be ready for delivery; and 

(b)    Barista & Co shall notify the Retailer of the collection date and the Retailer shall take delivery of the Products within five (5) calendar days of the collection date.

7.3   If the Retailer shall for any reason fail to take or accept delivery of the Products on the agreed date or dates, delays in doing so or fails to provide a delivery address pursuant to an Order then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or Barista & Co’s failure to comply with its obligations under the Purchase Contract, without prejudice to any other rights of Barista & Co (whether under these Applicable Terms or otherwise):

(a)    delivery of the Products shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00 am on the third (3rd) Business Day after the day on which Barista & Co notified the Retailer that the Products were ready; and 

(b)    Barista & Co shall be entitled to make an additional charge in respect of any delay caused by such failure and for any costs incurred as a result of repeated delivery necessitated by such failure.

7.4   If the Purchase Contract is an International Supply Contract and the parties have expressly agreed in writing to adopt Incoterms for delivery, it shall be deemed to incorporate the latest edition of Incoterms current at the date of the Purchase Contract save that in the event of any inconsistency between the Incoterms and any express term of the Purchase Contract (including these Applicable Terms) the latter shall prevail. 

7.5   While Barista & Co will use its reasonable endeavours to deliver the Products by any date or within any period agreed upon, such dates and periods are estimates only, given in good faith, and Barista & Co will not be liable for any failure to deliver by or within such a period nor shall delays in the delivery of an Order entitle the Retailer to refuse to take delivery of an Order. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the Purchase Contract. Barista & Co shall be entitled to defer delivery until any monies due from the Retailer have been received. 

7.6   The Retailer acknowledges that Products for delivery outside of the United Kingdom may be subject to United Kingdom export controls as well as import controls at their destination. The Retailer will be responsible for ensuring that all necessary clearances and licences are obtained prior to the dispatch dates for the Products to be supplied and for obtaining all necessary documentation and lodging the same with Barista & Co prior to despatch of the Products. 

8      RISK & TITLE

8.1   Save in the case of any circumstances where the parties expressly agree in writing to adopt Incoterms in an International Supply Contract, and subject to any agreement in writing by Barista & Co, the risk in Products shall pass to the Retailer on the relevant Delivery Date.

8.2   The following provisions shall, subject to paragraph 8.3, apply to all Purchase Contracts and to all Products which under the Purchase Contract Barista & Co agrees to supply to the Retailer. No failure by Barista & Co to enforce strict compliances by the Retailer with such provisions shall constitute a waiver thereof and no termination of the Purchase Contract shall prejudice limit or extinguish Barista & Co’s rights under this paragraph.

(a)    Upon delivery of the Products the Retailer shall hold the Products solely as bailee for Barista & Co and the Products shall remain the property of Barista & Co until such time as the Retailer shall have paid to Barista & Co and Barista & Co shall have cleared funds for the full purchase price of all Products, whether under the Purchase Contract or otherwise. Until this time Barista & Co shall be entitled to recover the Products or any part thereof and, for the purpose of exercising such rights, the Retailer hereby grants a licence to Barista & Co, its employees and agents (together with appropriate transport) to enter upon the Retailer’s premises and any other location where the Products are situated and remove the Products. 

(b)    The Retailer is hereby licensed to agree to sell on the Products on condition that the Retailer shall inform its customer of the provisions of sub-paragraph 8.2(a).

(c)    The Retailer shall maintain appropriate insurance in respect of the Products from the date or dates on which the risk therein passes to the Retailer. In the event of any loss or damage occurring while the Products remain the property of Barista & Co, the Retailer shall immediately on receipt of the insurance monies, remit to Barista & Co the full purchase price of the Products lost or damaged less any part thereof which has already been paid and until such amount has been so remitted shall hold such amount as trustee and agent for Barista & Co.

(d)    The licences granted under this paragraph 8.2 shall be terminable forthwith at any time upon notice by Barista & Co to the Retailer.

(b)   the Retailer alters or repairs such Products without the written consent of Barista & Co;

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

(d)   the Products differ from their description as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements; or

9.4   Except as provided in this paragraph 9, Barista & Co shall have no liability to the Retailer in respect of the Products’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in paragraph 9.1.

Other than the Licensed Purposes, the Licensed Rights shall not be used for any other purpose without prior written consent of Barista & Co (such consent to be given or refused at the complete discretion of Barista & Co) 

2.2          This licence shall be personal to the Retailer, who shall have no right to assign or grant sub-licences of or from such licence.

2.3          No further right or licence is granted by Barista & Co to the Retailer by this licence, save as expressly set out in paragraph 2.1 and the Retailer acknowledges that all rights in the Licensed Rights (including any and all goodwill) are reserved by Barista & Co.

The Retailer assigns (by way of present and, where appropriate, future assignment) such right and title as it may have in such Intellectual Property Rights to Barista & Co. If for any reason the Retailer is prevented or restricted at law from assigning such Intellectual Property Rights, or any other rights, title, interest or goodwill, the Retailer agrees to grant to Barista & Co an exclusive, worldwide, unconditional, royalty free, irrevocable licence in perpetuity, for the purpose of enabling Barista & Co to use such Intellectual Property Rights, rights, title, interest or goodwill for any purpose required by Barista & Co at any time in the future.

The Retailer irrevocably appoints and authorises Barista & Co to execute the same on its behalf as its authorised Agent if the Retailer fails to execute and deliver any such document or do any such act within seven (7) calendar days of any request in writing from Barista & Co to do so.

2.7          The Retailer shall:

(a)           use reasonable endeavours to procure the irrevocable waiver of all moral rights in the Improvements, to the extent permitted by applicable law;

(b)           use reasonable endeavours to ensure that records are maintained that are sufficient to provide evidence of the process of independent creation of the Improvements; and 

(c)           be responsible for ensuring that written agreements are entered into with, and adhered to by, employees and permitted subcontractors who use the Licensed Rights and that, unless otherwise agreed with Barista & Co in writing in advance, the terms of engagement of such employees and subcontractors are consistent with, and enable the Retailer fully to comply with, the provisions of this paragraph 2.
