(ii) any wilful, unlawful or negligent act or omission of the Customer including use of the goods for any purpose other than their intended purpose.
(e) The Customer shall at all times indemnify and keep indemnified the Indemnified Parties against any loss (including reasonable legal costs and expenses) or liability reasonably incurred or suffered by any of the Indemnified Parties from any claims, demands or proceedings made by any third party in respect of any loss, damage, death or injury arising from the Customer’s use of the goods.

Any mistake on any quotation, order, invoice, delivery docket or other document issued by Jurox in relation to the Contract shall not be binding on Jurox, and Jurox may in its discretion issue such amended document as is required to rectify such mistake. The Customer shall comply with Jurox’s amended document.
The Customer irrevocably permits Jurox or any person authorised in writing by Jurox to enter into, all of the owned and leased premises of the Customer or any site in which Jurox reasonably believes that the goods are located for the purpose of inspecting or retrieving (subject to the terms of the Contract) any goods of Jurox.
