1.         The contract between us

 

We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Your payment of the price for the goods represents an offer on your part to purchase the goods.  Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us.

3.         Accuracy of content

 

We have taken care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all goods have been fairly described. However, orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website.

However, we cannot guarantee that your use of this website or any websites accessible through it will not cause damage to your computer. It is your responsibility to ensure that the right equipment is available to use the website. Except in the case of negligence on our part, we will not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise to computer equipment as a result of using this website.

5.          Availability

 

All orders are subject to acceptance and availability.  If the Goods you have ordered are not available from stock we will contact you by email or phone (if you have given us details).  You will have the option either to wait until the item is available from stock or to cancel your order.

 

6.         Ordering errors

  

You are able to correct errors on your order up to the point at which we have despatched.

 

7.               Price

 

The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out in our website or on our Price List.  All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rate and are correct at the time of entering information.

Wherever it is not possible to accept your order to buy goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email or telephone, offer to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email or phone call and will state the period for which the offer or price remains valid.

 

8.         Payment terms

  

We will charge your credit card account for payment upon receipt of your order unless delivery cannot be fulfilled within 30 days.  We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details, correct delivery address or a correct contact phone number.  If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from your account then we can cancel the contract and or suspend any further deliveries to you.  This does not affect any other rights we may have.

We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and we will contact you to arrange an alternative time.

15.1.1  to make good any shortage or non-delivery;

15.1.2  to replace or repair any goods that are damaged or defective; or

15.1.3  to refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question in whatever way we choose.
