Quotations provided by the Seller will be valid for the period of time stated in the quotation and if no time period is stated for a period of 30 days from the date on the quotation.

Subject to credit department approval and unless otherwise agreed to in writing, the Customer will, on or before the 30th day of the month following the date on which the Product is invoiced, pay the Seller in Canadian Dollars in full for the Product so invoiced.

The Product shall remain personal property notwithstanding its mode of attachment to real or other property. If the Customer is in default of payments as outlined herein, the Seller may retain any partial payments which have been made as liquidated damages and the Seller shall be entitled to immediate possession of the Product and shall be free to enter the premises where the Product may be located and remove the Product as the Seller’s property without prejudice to the Seller’s right to recover any further expenses, including expenses arising fro the removal or disassembly of the Product, or damages suffered by the Seller as a result of such non-payment by the Purchaser.
