TSA shall be under no liability for loss, damage or delay however arising caused by circumstances outside its control.
The title to any goods supplied by TSA remains with TSA until the debt and any late payment penalty has been paid in full. The Customer agrees that, prior to the payment of the whole price of any goods, TSA may enter upon the Customer’s premises and remove the goods there from and that prior to such payment the Customer shall keep the goods separate and identifiable for this purpose.
