  3. Our contract with you
    1. How we will accept your order. All orders (which are requests to purchase) are placed online.

Payment for the requested products (which is a payment on account until the contract between us come into force) must be made at the time of order.  Our Automated response is not an acceptance by us of the order and the contract between us will not come into existence or effect until we send you either a delivery note or an invoice.
    2. If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to fulfil your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product (or will refund any payment already made). This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
    3. Your order number. Your order number will be the reference number assigned on the automated response. The invoice number may also be used in respect of your order.

    3. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
    4. If you are not at the delivery address when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery.

If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 2 will apply.

We will then advise on replacement of your product (clause 9). Please also provide a description of the nature of the damage to the product itself, including any errors in functionality.  Failure to do this will not affect your statutory rights.
  6. Your rights to end the contract
    1. You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

      2. If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 6.2 You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;

      2. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.

  10. Price and payment
    1. Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order.

However please see clause 3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
    2. We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
    3. What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount.

    2. We are not liable for business losses. These terms and conditions apply to the supply of products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

  12. How we may use your personal information. We will only use your personal information as set out in our Privacy Policy.
  13. Other important terms

    4. If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
    5. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
    6. Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts.
