8 Title and risk
8.1 Notwithstanding delivery to the Buyer, the Seller shall be legally and beneficially entitled to the ownership of the Goods until payment of all debts owed by the Buyer to the Seller. Until such payment, and subject to the following provisions, the Buyer holds the Goods as bailee of the Seller and owes to the Seller the normal fiduciary obligations of a bailee by way of custody in respect of the Goods. Insofar as the Buyer shall, or shall purport to, offer for sale and sell the goods, it shall do so only at the best obtainable price in the ordinary course of its business as principal and not as agent for the Seller. The Seller, shall, by reason of the said relationship of bailment between the Buyer (as bailee) and itself (as bailor), be and remain legally and beneficially entitled to the proceeds of sale and the Buyer shall pay such proceeds of sale into a separate account or, otherwise, shall ensure that all the proceeds of sale are kept by or on behalf of the Buyer in a separate and identifiable form. The proceeds shall not be paid into an overdrawn bank account.
