3. Making Orders of Products
To make an Order: To make an Order, you must be:
over the age of 18; and
resident in the United Kingdom.
Procedure for making an Order: When making an Order, you must follow the instructions on the Site as to how to make your Order and for making changes to your Order before you submit it to the Site.
Price: Irrespective of any previous price you have seen or heard, once you select a Product that you wish to Order, you will then be shown the charges you must pay including VAT, if applicable, and any applicable delivery charges. Unless otherwise stipulated on the Site or agreed in writing by us, all charges are in the currency then in force in England (i.e. currently pounds sterling). Subject to clause 3.12 below, this is the total that you will pay for receipt of the ordered Product.
Delivery: Any delivery charge will be based on a number of factors and will be confirmed before you place your Order. We do not accept Orders for delivery addresses outside the UK.
Payment methods: You shall pay for the Product in full at the time of ordering by supplying us with your credit or debit card details from a credit or debit card company acceptable to us, which we require in order to process your Order. Alternatively, you may pay by any method that we have said is acceptable to us, but in any event (unless otherwise agreed by us in writing) we shall not be bound to supply before we have received cleared funds in full. We may need to run credit checks or other anti-fraud checks in certain cases, for example, if the billing address does not match the delivery address – and you agree to cooperate with these checks.
Permission to pay: If you are asked for details of a payment card, you must be fully entitled to use that card and account. The card and account must have sufficient funds to cover the proposed payment to us.
Correct details: You must ensure that all details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing the Product from us will be correct, that the credit or debit card, or account or other payment method, which you use, is your own and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of the Product. We reserve the right to obtain validation of your credit or debit card details before providing you with the Product.
Being bound by these Terms and Conditions: When you submit an Order to the Site, you agree that you do so subject to these Terms and Conditions current at the date you submit your Order. You are responsible for reviewing the latest Terms and Conditions each time you submit your Order.
Your Order is an offer to buy: Your Order remains valid as an offer until we despatch the Product which is the subject of your Order to you or, if earlier, when we receive your notice revoking your Order.
Acceptance of your Order: We shall not be obliged to supply the Product to you until we have accepted your Order. Unless expressly stating that we accept your Order, an email, letter, fax or other Acknowledgement of your Order by us is purely for information purposes and does not constitute our acceptance of your Order. In that Acknowledgement, we may give you an Order reference number and details of the Product you have ordered. We may, in our discretion, refuse to accept an Order from you for any reason, including unavailability of supplies or we may offer you an alternative Product (in which case we may require you to re-submit your Order first). The Contract shall be formed and we shall be legally bound to supply the Product to you when we accept your Order. Acceptance shall take place when the Product which is the subject of your Order is despatched to you. Without affecting your obligation to pay us earlier, we may send an invoice to you at any time after we have accepted your Order. Until the time when we accept your Order, we reserve the right to refuse to process your Order and you reserve the right to cancel your Order. If we or you have cancelled your Order before we have accepted it, then we will promptly refund any payment already made by you or your credit or debit card company to us for the order of the Product.
Mistakes in an Order: If you discover that you have made a mistake with your Order after you have submitted it to the Site, please contact email@example.com or 0800 0688 588 immediately.
Accuracy of prices: We try very hard to ensure that the price given to you is accurate, but the price of your Order will need to be validated by us as part of our acceptance procedure. If the price for the Order changes before we accept your Order, we will contact you and ask you to confirm that you wish to proceed at the amended price.
4. Delivery of the Product
Delivery: We aim to deliver the Product to you at the place of delivery requested by you in your Order.
Accepting delivery: We cannot leave Products at places of delivery stipulated in your Order if you, or someone you have authorised to accept delivery, is not present to accept delivery. Anyone at the delivery address will be deemed to be authorised to accept delivery.
Timeframe: We aim to deliver within 30 days of the date on which you place your Order or such other timeframe as may be indicated on the Site. However, we cannot promise an exact date at the time of your Order. When you place your Order you are able to select whether you would like the Product delivered on a “Next Day” or “Standard” basis. We always aim to deliver in accordance with any confirmed delivery date we have given to you for any Order which we accept but we cannot guarantee any firm delivery dates.
Next day delivery details: Next day delivery may be requested for Orders. However, we only offer next day delivery for Orders placed before 12pm, and on certain products. Next day delivery is not available for Orders placed on Fridays or any other day which is not a Business Day. Finally, next day delivery is always subject to availability of stock, subject to an additional charge which will be agreed with you on the Site before you place your Order and is always dependent on where the delivery location is as to whether we can offer it.
Delivery times: We aim to deliver between the hours of 7.30am and 6.00pm on Business Days. Specific estimates for the time of delivery on any delivery date cannot be given.
Unable to meet estimated delivery date: We shall aim to let you know if we expect that we are unable to meet our estimated delivery date, but, to the extent permitted by law, we shall not be liable to you for any losses, liabilities, costs, damages, charges or expenses arising out of late delivery.
Accepting delivery: On delivery of the Product, you are required to sign for delivery. You agree to inspect the Product for the correct quantities and any obvious faults, defects or damage before you sign for delivery. If the Product does have an obvious fault, defect or damage on delivery, you must stipulate that the Product is faulty, defective or damaged when you sign for delivery; a failure to stipulate this will mean that we cannot replace the faulty, defective or damaged Product. You need to keep receipt of the delivered Product in case of future discussions with us about it. You must submit any claim to us for faulty, defective or damaged Products in accordance with this clause to the following contact details:
Phone: 0800 0688 588
Fax: 01494 791 268
If you do report a faulty, defective or damaged product to us, clause 6 applies.
Difficult locations: Please note that it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. If this is the case, we will inform you using your contact details and arrange for cancellation of the Order or an alternative delivery address.
Packaging: We deliver in our standard packaging.
Risk: All risk in the Product shall pass to you upon delivery, except that where delivery is delayed due to your breach of your obligations under the Contract, risk shall pass at the date when delivery would have occurred but for your breach. From the time when risk passes to you, we will not be liable for loss or destruction of the Product.
Care when opening: You must take care when opening the Product so as not to damage it, particularly when using any sharp instruments.
Readiness to receive Products: You shall ensure that you are ready for safe receipt of the Product without undue delay and at any time reasonably specified by us.
If you are not around: If you are not available to take delivery, we may leave a card giving instructions on redelivery from the carrier. We may also pass on any costs incurred by us consequent on no-one being available to take delivery.
Refusal to accept delivery: If delivery or collection is delayed through your unreasonable refusal to accept delivery, if you are not at the place of delivery stipulated in your Order on the delivery date that we agree with you, if you refuse to sign for the delivery of the Product on delivery or if you do not (within two weeks of our first attempt to deliver the Product to you) accept delivery or collect the Product from the carrier, then we may (without affecting any other right or remedy available to us) do either or both of the following:
charge you for our reasonable storage fee and other costs reasonably incurred by us, including, but not limited to, redelivery costs; and
no longer make the Product available for delivery or collection and notify you that we are immediately cancelling the Contract, in which case we will refund to you or your credit or debit card company as applicable any money already paid to us under the Contract, less our reasonable administration charges (including for attempting to deliver and then returning the Product).
Do the Products meet your needs?: It is your responsibility to ensure that the Products are sufficient and suitable for your purposes and meet your individual requirements. We do not warrant that the Products will meet your individual requirements. You acknowledge that the Products are standard and not made bespoke to fit any particular requirements that you may have.
5. Returning the Product Without Fault
NOT AFFECTING YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS: THE REMEDIES IN THIS CLAUSE 5 ARE ADDITIONAL TO AND DO NOT AFFECT YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS, UNDER WHICH YOU MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO INSIST THAT GOODS THAT YOU BUY FROM BUSINESSES MUST CORRESPOND WITH THEIR DESCRIPTION, BE FIT FOR THEIR PURPOSE AND BE OF A SATISFACTORY QUALITY. THIS CLAUSE 5 ONLY APPLIES IN RESPECT OF PRODUCTS WHICH ARE NOT FAULTY.
Right to cancel: You may cancel the Contract at any time until 14 days after the day after you have received the Product. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 7 below). Details of your right of cancellation, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in clause 5.3 below and may also be set out on the Site. This provision does not affect your other statutory rights as a consumer.
How to cancel: To cancel a Contract as detailed under the previous clause, you must inform us in writing by sending your notice of cancellation by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 01494 791 268, in each case quoting our order reference number and delivery details. You must also arrange prompt delivery of the Products back to us as soon as reasonably practicable, and at your own cost. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
Packaging returned Products: If you return any Product because you have cancelled the Contract, you must ensure that it is adequately packaged, insured and carriage paid. Returning the Product is at your risk. We shall not accept any responsibility for damage caused by inadequate packaging by you or if the Product is damaged or lost whilst being returned.
6. Faulty Products
Quality of Products: We warrant that:
the Product will be delivered undamaged in the quantities ordered; and
the Product will conform with the manufacturer's latest published instructions as set out on the Site or in our Product materials at the time of your Order.
Use of Products: The Product is intended to be used strictly in accordance with the manufacturer's latest published instructions as set out on the Site or as set out in any user instructions sent to you with the Product. It is the user's responsibility to ensure that he or she uses the Product strictly in accordance with those instructions.
Minor Adjustments: Before delivery, we may make minor adjustments to material, colour, weight, measurements, design and other features to the extent that they are reasonable.
Notification and Inspection: We try very hard to deliver Products in excellent condition. However if you tell us that any Product is faulty, you agree to keep the Product in its current condition available for us (or our agent) to inspect within a reasonable time.
Assistance to remedy faulty Products: In order to provide you with any remedies for a faulty Product, we may need your assistance and prompt provision of certain information regarding the Product, including:
you specifying with reasonable detail the way in which it is alleged that the Product is damaged or defective;
you providing to us photographic evidence, on reasonable request; and
you providing us with the delivery note number and such other information as we reasonably require.
When we won’t repair, replace or refund: If you would like us to repair, replace or provide a refund for the Product where it did conform to the Contract, or we find that the Product has:
been misused, abused or subjected to neglect, improper or inadequate care, carelessness, damage or abnormal conditions; or
been involved in any accident or damage caused by an incorrect attempt at modification or repair; or
been dealt with or used contrary to our or the manufacturer's instructions for the Product; or
deteriorated through normal wear and tear;
after delivery by us, we may at our discretion decide not to repair, replace or refund you for the Product and/or we may require you to pay all reasonable carriage costs and servicing costs at our current standard fees and costs and charge this to your credit or debit card, and, to the extent permitted by law, we shall not be liable to you for any losses, liabilities, costs, damages, charges or expenses as a result.
What we don`t limit or exclude liability for: Nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, for fraud, for breach of Sections 12 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or for any other liabilities that we cannot exclude at law.
Returns: If you return a Product to us:
because you have cancelled the Contract between us before the expiry of the 14-day cooling-off period (see clause 5.2), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible after they have been safely returned and, in any case, within 30 days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, including any applicable charges for delivery of the Product to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product safely to us; or
for any other reason (for instance, because you consider that the Product is defective under clause 6), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via email or by phone within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process any refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. We will refund the price of a defective Product in full including any applicable delivery charges. We will also be responsible for the cost of having the Product returned safely to us.
Refunds: We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

Choosing who to supply: If we have contracted to provide identical or similar Products to more than one buyer and are prevented from fully meeting our obligations to you by reason of an Event of Force Majeure, we may decide at our absolute discretion which contracts we will perform and to what extent.
