The production of these terms and conditions by Eurolux is sufficient evidence of Eurolux’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with Eurolux to make further enquiries.
6.3 If the Customer requests Eurolux to leave Goods outside Eurolux’s premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location then such Goods shall be left at the Customer’s sole risk.
