(a) Badger does not guarantee the websites performance or availability of any of its Goods; and
(b) on-line ordering may be unavailable from time to time for regularly scheduled maintenance and/or upgrades; and
(c) there are inherent hazards in electronic distribution and as such Badger cannot warrant against delays or errors in transmitting data between the Buyer and Badger including orders, and you agree that to the maximum extent permitted by law, Badger will not be liable for any losses which the Buyer suffers as a result of online-ordering not being available or for delays or errors in transmitting orders.

3.2 Badger reserves the right to terminate your order if it learns that you have provided false or misleading information, interfered with other users or the administration of Badger’s Services, or violated these terms and conditions.

If the Buyer sells, disposes or parts with possession of the Goods then the Buyer must hold the proceeds of any such act on trust for Badger and must pay or deliver the proceeds to Badger on demand.
(d) the Buyer should not convert or process the Goods or intermix them with other goods but if the Buyer does so then the Buyer holds the resulting product on trust for the benefit of Badger and must sell, dispose of or return the resulting product to Badger as it so directs.
(e) the Buyer irrevocably authorises Badger to enter any premises where Badger believes the Goods are kept and recover possession of the Goods.
