It is the Supplier's responsibility to arrange full and complete protection of all shipments to the University. No additional charges of any kind, including charges relating to boxing, packaging or cartage will be allowed unless specifically agreed to in writing by the University. All packaging must adequately protect the goods given their specific nature. The Supplier shall ensure that University's property is kept clean of any rubbish or surplus materials resulting from the supply of goods or services.

If any of the goods or services constitutes an infringement of patent and its use is enjoyed, the Supplier shall, at the Supplier's own expense, procure for the University, the right to continue using the product or service, replace or modify the product or service so it becomes non-infringing and meets the needs of the University, or pay the University for loss of use of the product or service.
     
  15.
