1. Except as provided by tariff, any mention herein of notify parties is solely for the Carrier's information, and failure to give notification shall not render the Carrier liable nor relieve the Merchant of any obligation to the Carrier.
2. The Merchant shall take delivery of the Goods within the time provided for in the Carrier's applicable tariff.
3. If the Merchant fails to take delivery of the Goods or part of them upon expiration of the tariff's prescribed free time, the Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered to the Merchant and the Carrier may with or without notice, but subject to its lien, unpack the Goods if packed in Container and/or store or warehouse the Goods or any part thereof ashore, afloat, in the open or under cover at the sole risk and expense of the Merchant. Thereupon, the liability of the Carrier in respect of the Goods shall cease wholly and the costs of such storage (if paid or payable by the Carrier or any agent or sub-contractor of the Carrier) shall forthwith upon demand be paid by the Merchant to the Carrier.
4. In all circumstances, Carrier shall have no liability whatsoever for the misdelivery of Goods in its actual or constructive possession to persons holding forged or fraudulent documents which reasonably purport to be original Bills of Lading or other original documents entitling them to possession, so long as the Carrier acts innocently and does not intentionally deliver the Goods to persons known by him to have no right to possession under the Bill of Lading.
