21.1 Where the Client has left any Property with PPG for the supply of the Goods, and PPG has not received or been tendered the whole of any amounts owing to it by the Client, PPG shall have, until all amounts owing to PPG are paid:
(a) a lien on the Property; and
(b) the right to retain or sell the Property, after providing fourteen (14) days’ notice to the Client, such sale to be undertaken in accordance with any legislation applicable to the sale or disposal of uncollected goods.
21.2 In the event that any of the Client’s Property held by PPG as aforesaid enjoys copyright protection in favour of the Client, the Client hereby grants PPG a licence to exercise the rights conferred on PPG under this clause 21.
21.3 The lien of PPG shall continue despite the commencement of proceedings, or judgment for any moneys owing to PPG having been obtained against the Client.
22.1 The failure by PPG to enforce any provision of these terms and conditions shall not be treated as a waiver of that provision, nor shall it affect PPG’s right to subsequently enforce that provision. If any provision of these terms and conditions shall be invalid, void, illegal or unenforceable the validity, existence, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected, prejudiced or impaired.
22.2 These terms and conditions, and any contract to which they apply, shall be governed by the laws of New South Wales, the state in which PPG has its principal place of business, and are subject to the jurisdiction of the Sydney courts in that state.
22.3 Subject to clause 16, PPG shall be under no liability whatsoever to the Client in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, negligence or breach of statutory duty or any failure by PPG to deliver, or any delay in delivering, the Goods) or otherwise to compensate the Client for any indirect and/or consequential loss and/or expense (including loss of profit, revenue, business, contracts or anticipated savings) suffered by the Client, whether arising from a claim by a third party or otherwise. Alternatively, PPG’s liability shall be limited to damages which under no circumstances shall exceed the Price.
22.4 The Client shall not be entitled to set off against, or deduct from the Price, any sums owed or claimed to be owed to the Client by PPG nor to withhold payment of any invoice because part of that invoice is in dispute.
22.5 PPG may license or sub-contract all or any part of its rights and obligations without the Client’s consent.
22.6 The Client agrees that PPG may amend these terms and conditions at any time. If PPG makes a change to these terms and conditions, then that change will take effect from the date on which PPG notifies the Client of such change. The Client will be taken to have accepted such changes if the Client makes a further request for PPG to supply Goods to the Client.
22.7 Neither party shall be liable for any default due to any act of God, war, terrorism, strike, lock-out, industrial action, fire, flood, storm or other event beyond the reasonable control of either party.
22.8 The Client warrants that it has the power to enter into the contract and has obtained all necessary authorisations to allow it to do so, it is not insolvent and that the contract creates binding and valid legal obligations on it.
