6.8.2. sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to you for the excess over the price under the Contract or charge you for any shortfall below the price under the Contract.

7. Risk and property

accordingly, you shall not be entitled to reject the Goods and we shall have no liability for such defect or failure, and you shall be bound to pay the price as if the Goods had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.

8.7. Where a valid claim in respect of any of the Goods which is based on a defect in the quality or condition of the Goods is notified to us in accordance with these Terms, we may replace the Goods (or the part in question) free of charge or, at our sole discretion, refund to you the price of the Goods (or a proportionate part of the price), in which case we shall have no further liability to you.
