All deliveries must be acknowledged, inspected and signed for by a representative of the buyer.

13. In the event of payment not being received within these terms, Klipspringer reserves the right to levy a 2% (APR) interest charge, calculated daily for each day the total invoiced amount remains unpaid. The additional charge will remain outstanding should the need arise to secure withheld payment via arbitration or after a court judgement.
