4.7 ISS may deliver the Equipment by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.

c) the defect arises as a result of ISS following any drawing, design or Equipment Specification supplied by the Customer;
d) the Customer alters or repairs such Equipment without the written consent of ISS;
e) the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions; or
f) the Equipment differs from its description or the Equipment Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory standards.
5.5 For the avoidance of doubt, any warranty provided by ISS to the Customer (whether pursuant to clause 5.1 or contained within the Quotation) shall begin from completion of delivery of the Equipment (and if delivery is by instalments, from the date of delivery for that particular Equipment).
5.6 Except as provided in this clause 5, ISS shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Equipment’s failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1 or any warranty contained in the Quotation.
