In the absence of such written acceptance, the Supplier shall be deemed to have withdrawn or waived his terms and conditions and to contract solely on the basis of these terms and conditions and acceptance of goods and/or services shall not constitute or be deemed to constitute acceptance by YPO of the Suppliers terms and conditions.  The contract shall commence and the Supplier will be contractually bound upon the despatch of a purchase order by YPO. 

2. PURCHASE ORDER 

2.1 The Supplier shall ensure that the goods and/or services shall: 

(a) correspond with the quantity, type, sort, quality and description set out in the purchase order;  

(b) meet the performance standards and dates specified on the purchase order or notified to the Supplier by YPO; 

(c) be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979) and fit for any purpose held out by the supplier or made known to the supplier by YPO;

In respect of services, the Supplier shall invoice YPO in full, monthly, or quarterly as agreed. The valid VAT invoice must contain the purchase order number and shall include such supporting information required by YPO to verify the accuracy of the invoice. 

3.3 YPO will pay the invoiced amounts within 30 days of the date of a valid and correct invoice to a bank account nominated in writing by the Supplier. 

3.4 YPO may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Supplier against any amount payable by YPO to the Supplier. 

4. INDEMNITY AND INSURANCE 

The Supplier shall hold and keep YPO indemnified in full against all costs, expenses, damages and losses (whether direct or indirect), including any interest, fines, legal and other professional fees and expenses awarded against or incurred or paid by YPO due to or arising out of the performance of the contract or any breach by the Supplier of these terms and conditions or any term or obligation implied by law or any statutory provision that may be in force from time to time.  The Supplier shall at all times have sufficient insurances in place and provide written evidence to YPO upon request.

7. GENERAL 

7.1 Force majeure: Neither party shall be liable to the other as a result of any delay or failure to perform its obligations under the Contract if and to the extent such delay or failure is caused by an event or circumstance which is beyond the reasonable control of that party which by its nature could not have been foreseen by such a party or if it could have been foreseen was unavoidable. If such event or circumstances prevent the Supplier from supplying the Goods and/or Services for more than 4 weeks, YPO shall have the right, without limiting its other rights or remedies, to terminate this Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice to the Supplier.

7.5 No partnership: Nothing in the Contract is intended to, or shall be deemed to, constitute a partnership of any kind between any of the parties.

7.6 Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999: A person who is not a party to the Contract shall not have any rights under or in connection with it.
