2. Basis of Sale

2.1 These Terms and the Order Form are considered by Us to set out the whole agreement between You and Us for the sale of the Goods. Please check that the details in the Order Form and any applicable specification are complete and accurate before You commit yourself to the Contract. If You think that there is a mistake, please make sure that You ask Us to confirm any changes in writing, as We only accept responsibility for statements and representations made in writing by Our authorised employees and agents. Please ensure that You read and understand these Terms before You sign and submit the Order Form, because You will be bound by the Terms once a Contract comes into existence between Us, in accordance with clause 2.6.

2.2 To the extent that You are deemed to be a consumer as defined by the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999, these conditions will not affect Your rights and will only apply to the extent that applicable law allows.

2.3 You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by Us which is not set out in the Contract. Nothing in this condition shall exclude or limit our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.

2.4 If any of these Terms are inconsistent with any term of the Order Form, the Order Form shall prevail.

2.5 The Order Form or acceptance of a quotation for Goods by You from Us is an offer by You to enter into binding Contract, which We are free to accept or decline at Our absolute discretion.

2.6 These Terms shall become binding on You and Us when;

2.6.1 We issue You with written acceptance of an order; or

2.6.2 We act in the performance of the order whichever is the earlier, at which point a Contract shall come into existence between Us

2.7 Any quotation for the Goods is given on the basis that a binding Contract shall only come into existence in accordance with clause 2.6. A quotation shall be valid for a period of 10 calendar days from its date of issue, unless We notify You in writing that We have withdrawn it during this period

2.8 We shall assign an order number to the order and inform You of it in the Order Confirmation. Please quote the order number in all subsequent correspondence with Us relating to the order.

2.9 You may at any time before any agreed delivery date or within three calendar days of placing an order amend or cancel an order by providing Us with written notice. If You amend or cancel an order, your liability to Us shall be limited to payment to Us of all costs We reasonably incur in fulfilling the order until we receive your amendment or cancellation, except that where the amendment or cancellation results from Our failure to comply with these Terms you shall have no liability to Us for it. This clause 2.9 shall not apply to any cancellation of an order for bespoke products in which case You will remain responsible for the full amount of the order.

2.10 We have the right to revise and amend these Terms from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting Our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in Out system’s capabilities. You will be subject to the policies and terms in force at the time that You order the Goods from us, unless any change to those policies or these Terms is required by law or government or regulatory authority (in which case, it will apply to orders You have previously placed that We have not yet fulfilled).

2.11 These terms shall apply to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (including any terms or conditions which You apply under any purchase order, confirmation of order, specification or other document).

3.3 We reserve the right to make changes to the specification of the Goods without further notice to You.

3.4 Except where You are dealing as a consumer (as defined by the Unfair Contracts Terms Act 1977 Section 12) all warranties, conditions or terms (whether implied or made expressly) whether by Us or Our servants or agents or otherwise relating to satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose or condition of the Goods and whether implied by statute or common law are excluded.

3.5.2 We are given a reasonable opportunity after receiving the notice of examining such Goods and You shall (if We ask You to do so) return such Goods to Us at Our cost for the examination to take place.

3.6 We shall not be liable for any defect(s) in the Goods arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, accident, negligence by You or any third party, if You use the Goods in a way that We or the manufacturer do not recommend, your failure to follow Our or the manufacturer’s instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the Goods or (if there are none) good trade practise, or any alteration or repair You carry out without Our prior written approval.

4.6 If We are not able to deliver the whole of the order at one time due to operational reasons or shortage of stock. We will deliver the order in instalments, We may charge You extra delivery costs.
