4.5 If the Supplier fails to deliver the Solutions, its liability shall be limited to the costs of the Solutions.

The title to Solutions which comprise hardware or software manufactured and/or developed by the Supplier from any Open Source or its own Intellectual Property ("the Suppliers Platform") shall belong absolutely to the Supplier as also defined in clause 10 of these Terms. For the avoidance of any doubt, Open Source software, for example under LGPLv3 licensing, qualifies as the Suppliers Platform. Software development paid for by the Customer does not constitute ownership of any of the software code of the Suppliers Platform, as this provides the customisation that specifically allows access to the system. The Suppliers Platform includes proprietary software code that is the property of the Supplier. The Supplier may, at its sole discretion, offer the Customer the option to acquire the Suppliers Platform under a Buy-Out agreement. However, this will not release the Customer from any separate licensing fees payable to the Solutions / Service manufacturer, where applicable; these shall be defined on the requisite Sales Order for the Solutions. For the avoidance of any doubt, examples of Third Party Solutions include: Sage 50, Quickbooks, Microsoft, Xero, SOPHOS and Acronis. In contrast, for example, software developed by the Supplier is not shrink-wrapped (OEM) software and is designated as the Suppliers Platform.
6.2 Title to Third Party Solutions shall not pass to the Customer until the Supplier has received payment in full (in cash or cleared funds).
6.3 Until title to Third Party Solutions has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall:
(a) hold the Solutions on a fiduciary basis;
(b) store the Solutions separately from all other Solutions held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as the Supplier’s property;
(c) not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Solutions;
(d) maintain the Solutions in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price on the Supplier’s behalf from the date of delivery;
(e) notify the Supplier immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 13.1(b) to clause 13.1(l); and
(f) give the Supplier such information relating to the Solutions as the Supplier may require from time to time, but the Customer may resell or use the Solutions in the ordinary course of its business.
6.4 If before title to the Third Party Solutions passes to the Customer the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 13.1(b) to clause 13.1(l), or the Supplier reasonably believes that any such event is about to happen and notifies the Customer accordingly, then, provided the Third Party Solutions have not been resold, and without limiting any other right or remedy the Supplier may have, the Supplier may at any time require the Customer to deliver up the Third Party Solutions and, if the Customer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Third Party Solutions are stored in order to recover them.
7. SUPPLY OF SERVICES
7.1 The Supplier shall provide the Services to the Customer in accordance with the Service Specification in all material respects.
