The Purchaser must separately store or otherwise distinguish goods delivered by the Seller until title in them passes to the Purchaser.

If the Seller enters the premises of the Purchaser to take possession of the goods and it is not possible to otherwise identify the ownership of the goods in the possession of the Purchaser, the goods will be treated as though they were sold by the Purchaser in the same sequence as the Purchaser took delivery of the goods. If the quantity of goods exceeds the amount owing, the Seller will be entitled to determine which of the goods it claims ownership in.
