You shall store them (at no cost to us) on your own premises, separately from all other goods in your possession. You shall mark them so that they are clearly identified as our property. You may resell or use them in the ordinary course of your business, provided that you hold any proceeds of sale in trust for us.34 Until property in the Sale Goods passes to you, you shall, upon our request, deliver up to us such of the Sale Goods as still exist and have not been resold. If you do not do so, we may enter any premises you own, occupy or control where the Sale Goods are located and repossess them. When we make such a request, your rights of resale or use under clause 33 shall cease.35 You shall not pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Sale Goods we own. You shall insure the Sale Goods and keep them insured to the full Price against all risks until property in the Sale Goods passes from us to you. You shall produce a copy of the policy of insurance to us whenever we request. Without prejudice to our other rights if you do so, all sums you owe us shall immediately become due and payable if you breach the terms of this clause.
