7. Orders – How Contracts Are Formed

7.1 Our Site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your Order you will be given the opportunity to review your Order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your Order carefully before submitting it.

7.2 If, during the order process, you provide Us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact Us as soon as possible. If We are unable to process your Order due to incorrect or incomplete information, We will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give Us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel your Order and treat the Contract as being at an end. If We incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, We may pass those costs on to you.

7.3 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending you an Order Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you an Order Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.

7.4 Order Confirmations shall contain the following information:

7.4.1 Your Order Number;

7.4.2 Confirmation of the Goods ordered including full details of the main characteristics of those Goods;

7.4.3 Fully itemised pricing for the Goods ordered including, where appropriate, taxes.

7.5 We will also include a paper copy of the Order Confirmation with your Goods.

7.6 In the unlikely event that We do not accept or cannot fulfil your Order for any reason, We will explain why in writing. If We have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 5 – 10 working days.

7.7 Any refunds due under this Clause 7 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods.

 

8. Payment

8.1 Payment for Goods must always be made in advance and you will be prompted to pay during the order process.

8.2 Payment for Delivery must also always be made in advance we will contact you separately with a quotation and payment request for delivery charges.

8.3 Payment must be made in full for your Order, without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction, or withholding (except where any deduction or withholding of tax is required by law).

8.4.1 All Major Debit and Credit Cards (excludes Amex)

8.4.2 Paypal

 

9. Delivery, Risk and Ownership

9.1 All Goods purchased through Our Site will normally be shipped within 3 working days after the date of Our Order Confirmation and when full payment has been received, unless otherwise agreed or specified during the Order process (subject to delays caused by events outside of Our control, for which see Clause 12).

9.2 If We are unable to deliver the Goods on the delivery date, the following will apply:

9.2.1 If no one is available at your delivery address to receive the Goods and the Goods cannot be posted through your letterbox or left in a safe place nominated by you, We will leave a delivery note explaining how to rearrange delivery or where to collect the Goods;

9.2.2 If you do not collect the Goods or rearrange delivery within 3 working days, We will contact you to ask you how you wish to proceed. If We cannot contact you or arrange redelivery or collection, We will treat the Contract as cancelled and recover the Goods. If this happens, you will be refunded the purchase price of the Goods themselves, but not the cost of delivery. We may also bill you for any reasonable additional cost that We incur in recovering the Goods.

9.3 In the unlikely event that We fail to deliver the Goods within 30 calendar days of Our Order Confirmation (or as otherwise agreed or specified as under sub-Clause 10.1), if any of the following apply you may treat the Contract as being at an end immediately:

9.3.1 We have refused to deliver your Goods;

9.3.2 You told Us when ordering the Goods that delivery within that time period was essential.

9.4 If you do not wish to cancel under sub-Clause 9.3 or if none of the specified circumstances apply, you may specify a new (reasonable) delivery date. If We fail to meet the new deadline, you may then treat the Contract as being at an end.

9.5 You may cancel all or part of your Order under sub-Clauses 9.3 or 9.4 provided that separating the Goods in your Order would not significantly reduce their value. Any sums that you have already paid for cancelled Goods and their delivery will be refunded to you within 5 – 10 days. Please note that if any cancelled Goods are delivered to you, you must return them to Us or arrange with Us for their collection. In either case, We will pass on the cost of returning the cancelled Goods.

9.6 Delivery shall be deemed complete once We have delivered the Goods to the address you have provided.

9.7 Ownership of the Goods passes to you once We have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges).

9.8 Responsibility for (the risk in) the Goods will pass to you when ownership of the Goods passes to you, as defined in sub-Clause 9.7.
