8.1.1 where the order value is £5000 or greater, zioxi will invoice the Customer for 50% of the order value at the point of order; and 50% of the order value on despatch of the goods (UK customers) or where the Customer is domiciled outside of the UK, the agreed INCO 2010 term is to apply.
8.2 The Customer shall pay all invoices within thirty (30) days of the date thereof (time being of the essence). Terms of payment are within zioxi’ sole discretion and unless otherwise agreed to by zioxi, payment may be received by zioxi prior to zioxi’s acceptance of an order in accordance with these terms. zioxi reserves the right to charge interest at the lower rate of (a) 8% per annum above the Bank of England base rate or (b) the highest rate applicable under the Governing Law, from time to time on any payment or any part payment overdue calculated from the date due and to recover its expenditure including legal fees and costs of collection and to suspend delivery, performance of any warranty or (at zioxi’s option) forthwith to determine the same. zioxi has no obligation to provide service or support until zioxi has received full payment for the Product or services or support that the Customer has purchased.

8.3 The Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). zioxi may at any time, without limiting any other rights or remedies it may have, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by zioxi to the Customer.
9. DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION
9.1 Dates for delivery of the Products are estimates only and are subject to zioxi’s availability schedule. zioxi shall make every reasonable effort to meet any delivery date(s) acknowledged but shall not be liable for failure to meet such date(s). Time is not of the essence for the delivery of Products.
9.6 The Customer is responsible for obtaining, at its own cost, such import licences and other consents in relation to the Products as are required from time to time and, if required by zioxi, the Customer shall make those licences and consents available to zioxi prior to the relevant shipment.
10. DAMAGES, SHORTAGES OR LOSS IN TRANSIT
The Customer shall inspect the Products immediately on delivery and zioxi will accept responsibility for damages, shortage or loss in transit only if:
If the Customer fails to give notice as specified in this clause 10 then, except in respect of any defect which is not one which would be apparent on reasonable inspection, the Products shall conclusively be presumed to comply with the Warranty and, accordingly, the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the delivery of the Products in question and zioxi shall have no liability to the Customer with respect to that delivery (except in relation to liability for any latent defects).
Where zioxi accepts responsibility under this clause zioxi shall at its option replace or repair any Products proved to zioxi’s satisfaction to have been lost or damaged in transit.
11. ACCEPTANCE OF PRODUCTS
11.1 For zioxi installed Products, satisfactory completion of zioxi’s standard test procedure and an Acceptance Form signed by the Customer and zioxi will be sufficient to establish acceptance.

Subject to Clause 6 risk of loss and damage shall pass from zioxi to the Customer upon delivery of Products to the Customer or its agent, and in accordance with Incoterms for Customers domiciled outside the UK.
13. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

14. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
14.1 If notified promptly in writing of any action (and all prior claims relating to such action) brought against the Customer, based on a claim that the Customer’s use of Products infringes a United Kingdom patent or copyright, zioxi will defend such action at its expense and pay the costs and damages awarded, provided that zioxi shall have sole control of the defence of any such action and all negotiations for its settlement or compromise. At any time during the course of any litigation arising out of a claim of infringement for a United Kingdom patent or copyright, or if in zioxi’s opinion, a Product is likely to become the subject of a claim of infringement of a United Kingdom patent or copyright, zioxi will at its option and expense either procure for the Customer the right to continue using the Product, replace or modify the same so that it becomes non-infringing, or grant the Customer a credit for the Product as depreciated and accept its return. Depreciation will be an equal amount per year over the lifetime of the Product as established by zioxi. zioxi will not have any liability to the Customer under any provision of this clause if the infringement or claim thereof is based upon:-
14.1.1 use of Products in combination with other equipment or software not supplied by zioxi; or
14.2 The foregoing states the entire liability of zioxi with respect to infringement of patents or copyrights by Products or any part thereof or by their operation. No costs or expenditure will be incurred for the account of zioxi without the prior written consent of zioxi.
15. zioxi LIABILITY
15.1 Products have been manufactured or developed by zioxi or third parties to standard specifications. The Customer accepts that zioxi is acting only as a supplier and that it is the Customer’s responsibility to verify that the Hardware will be suitable for its own requirements. There are no warranties, conditions, guarantees or representations as to description merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or other warranties, conditions, guarantees or representations whether express implied by statute or otherwise oral or in writing except as provided herein and except as to statute implied terms as to title.
16. EXPORT CONTROL
Under regulations governing United Kingdom trade and by virtue of its agreements with suppliers, zioxi requires to be pre-notified of shipments outside the United Kingdom. Customer is required to obtain all necessary licences prior to export. Delivery of Products is subject to all such authorisations being available at the time of delivery. zioxi will provide the required data or at its option seek to obtain the relevant licences on behalf of the end user.
zioxi reserves the right to change specifications of Products at any time and without notice and to supply Hardware which differs from the specifications agreed between zioxi and Customer provided that such substitutions do not materially affect the performance of the Products.
18.1 zioxi shall have the right, without prejudice to any other remedies, at any time by giving notice in writing to the Customer to terminate forthwith this agreement, including any Service in any of the following events:-
18.1.1 if the Customer fails to pay any sums to zioxi on the due date of payment; or
19.1 Neither party shall be liable to the other for any delay in or failure to perform its obligations hereunder (other than a payment of money) provided that such a failure is due to causes beyond its reasonable control.

For the avoidance of doubt, the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to the Contract.
