If we agree with you that the sale is dependent on the issue of an export licence, payment must be made, in the same way, within 7 days after the issue of the export licence. In either case, payment has not been made until we have received cleared funds representing the full amount.

5.2 Subject to clause 5.3 below, from the time and date agreed for its collection, you will be responsible for the goods and the risk of damage to it or loss of it will pass to you.

7.4 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the sale of the goods is not dependent on either us or you obtaining an export licence.
8. BREACH BY THE BUYER
If you fail to pay the purchase price in full (or if we agree with you payment by set instalments and you fail to pay any one or more instalment) by the due date, or if prior to you paying the purchase price in full you fail to comply with the obligations set out in clauses 6 and 7 above, or otherwise do or fail to do anything which may in any way imperil our ownership of the goods or the goods itself, we are entitled (without prejudice to our other rights and remedies at law) to either:
8.1.1 terminate the contract for sale, repossess the goods and claim damages for any loss we have suffered; or
8.1.2 or at our election, treat the sale as cancelled, and repossess the goods, in which case (and only in which case) we shall following the safe return of the goods, refund to you any part of the purchase price you have paid, after deduction of any sums due to us including but not limited to costs of recovery and restoration of the goods.
8.2 We shall also have the right to repossess the goods and cancel the sale if before you make full payment of the purchase price to us, proceedings occur in the UK or elsewhere involving your solvency (including but not limited to the presentation of a bankruptcy petition or winding-up petition; or the convening of a meeting to wind you up voluntarily; or an application for an interim order for a voluntary arrangement, or for the appointment of an administrator; or the appointment of an administrative or other receiver).

9. LIMITATION OF OUR LIABILITY

We shall not accept any claim after these periods.
We will have the right, but not the obligation, to rescind a sale without notice to you, where an adverse claim is made by a third party, including but not limited to, someone claiming ownership of the goods. Upon notice of our election to rescind the sale, you will promptly return the goods to us. We will then refund the price and any amount paid to us. The refund of the price will constitute your sole remedy and recourse against us with respect to such claims.
