2.2 If the Terms of Payment provide that the Customer is to pay a deposit, that deposit must be paid in full prior to production of the Products and Enso International Pty Ltd shall be entitled to delay production until the deposit is paid by the Customer in full. The deposit paid is non-refundable and will be reduced off the Price.

The rights in this clause do not limit any remedies Enso International Pty Ltd may have against the Customer under any Sales Order. Without limiting Enso International Pty Ltd's  rights or entitlements, Enso International Pty Ltd may at any time in its complete discretion use the deposit to pay any debts, liabilities or other claims for which it may become liable for or to any third party with respect to any Sales Order or Product (or material that may form part of the Product). The Customer agrees the deposit paid is a genuine pre-estimate of the loss or damage that Enso International Pty Ltd will incur or suffer if the Customer does not observe its obligations under the Sales Order.

2.3 If the Customer is to pay all or part of the Price on receipt of an invoice or upon delivery of the Product, the Customer shall pay that amount immediately upon receipt of an invoice or upon delivery of the Products (as the case may be) and Enso International Pty Ltd shall be entitled to withhold delivery of the Products until the required amount is paid to Enso International Pty Ltd in full.

If the Customer fails to comply with these provisions, the Products shall be conclusively presumed to be in accordance with the Sales Order and free from defect or damage and in accordance with the description of the Products in the Sales Schedule and the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the Products.

4.3 Enso International Pty Ltd may make part deliveries of an order and each part delivery shall constitute a separate agreement.

Where Enso International Pty Ltd makes part delivery, Enso International Pty Ltd may invoice the Customer for the Products delivered on each separate delivery.

4.4 Where the Customer has not specified delivery instructions at the time of placing an order for the Products, and the Customer has failed to provide such delivery instructions to Enso International Pty Ltd within 3 days of a request by Enso International Pty Ltd, Enso International Pty Ltd may impose a charge on the Customer for storage of the Products at the prevailing market rate for storage or the actual cost of storage (at the election of Enso International Pty Ltd).

19 Orders

19.1 Each Outlet or Head Office will order its requirements for Products directly from Enso International Pty Ltd via the Web Ordering Portal.

19.2 The depiction of Products on the Web Ordering Portal, whether visual or textual, is not to be construed as an obligation to sell but merely an invitation to treat.

19.3 Enso International Pty Ltd will provide the Customer with a unique User Name, a unique password and a unique account number to enable authorised employees of the Customer to access the Web Ordering Portal. These three items of information must be entered into the entry screen of the Web Ordering Portal in order to gain access to the Web Ordering Portal. The Customer must ensure that:

19.6 A notice generated by the Web Ordering Portal acknowledging the Customer’s order has been received by Enso International Pty Ltd for processing, or a notice by Enso International Pty Ltd to the Customer to verify or vary details of the order shall not constitute an acceptance of the order.

19.7 Enso International Pty Ltd reserves the right to accept or decline the Customer’s order at any time and for any reason, or to require the Customer to provide additional verification or information associated with an order. Any order accepted by Enso International Pty Ltd is on these Terms and Conditions of Trading, irrespective of any Customer terms on any order.

19.8 Orders may not be altered or cancelled by the Customer without the written agreement of Enso International Pty Ltd. If Enso International Pty Ltd agrees to alter or cancel an order, the Customer shall pay to Enso International Pty Ltd any loss, damage or reasonable expense incurred in relation to that order.

19.9 The Customer shall use its best endeavours to ensure that each of the Outlets does not place orders for Products with a minimum total value less than the minimum specified in the Sales Schedule.
