5. YOUR STATUS
In placing an Order through our website you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into a binding contract, and that you are ordering for and on behalf of your business. We only sell Goods and Services to business customers.
6. THE CONTRACT
6.1 After you place an Order using our website, we will send you an email acknowledging receipt of that Order. This does not mean that your Order has been accepted. The Contract shall be formed when we dispatch the available Goods and shall be confirmed in a delivery note.
6.2 For Orders placed via the catalogue, the Contract shall be formed when we dispatch the Goods.
6.3 For the avoidance of doubt, the Contract will only be formed in relation to those Goods that we have confirmed are available for delivery in the delivery note. We will not be obliged to supply anything comprised in your Order until we have either dispatched the Goods or sent you a delivery note.
6.4 Where Goods ordered are out of stock or no longer available, we will inform you.
7.1 Some of the products shown in the Company’s catalogue or on the website may vary slightly on delivery if the Company’s suppliers alter the product specification after catalogue printing or publication on the website. In the event of the product being unsuitable following such alteration, the Company will supply the Customer with a suitable alternative, if such an item is currently in stock.
7.2 All Goods are subject to availability.
7.3 All illustrations, colours, dimensions, weights and capacities given are intended merely to present a general idea of the Goods and Services described and none of these shall form part of the Contract. Goods described in the catalogue and on the website, although often of a standard design, are subject to the Company’s policy of continuous improvement and the Company reserve the right to incorporate changes or make substitutions without prior notice.
8. SPECIAL ORDERS
Where the Customer places an Order that is not capable of being placed using the catalogue or website (perhaps due to, amongst other things, the quantity ordered, price of the Goods, unusual specifications of the products) it shall be deemed a “Special Order”. All Special Orders placed by the Customer shall be confirmed by the Company in writing showing prices, quantity and printing details. Any amendments to Special Orders must be notified by the Customer immediately on receipt of the Company’s confirmation, by telephone, and confirmed in writing on the same day. Payment for Special Orders shall be made at the time of placing the Order. Special Orders are non-cancellable.
9.1 Any dates or times for delivery of Goods or Services quoted by the Company are estimates only and the Company shall not be liable for any costs, charges or expenses incurred as a result of any delay or loss or damage occurring through any failure or liability to meet such date.
9.2 Goods shall be deemed delivered when they are made available to the Customer at the Customer’s place of business or other place specified by the Customer in the Order.
9.3 If the Customer fails to take delivery of the Goods ordered by him on the date agreed (or at all) he shall be liable to the Company for any loss occasioned by such failure or refusal and for any charges thereby incurred by the Company and for a reasonable charge by the Company for the care and custody of the Goods.
9.4 The Company reserves the right to deliver the Goods by instalments and in such event every such instalment shall be treated as a separate Contract. Further instalments may be withheld until the Goods comprised in earlier instalments have been paid for in full. No cancellation or termination of any one instalment shall entitle the Customer to cancel or terminate any other instalment.
10. RETURNS AND CANCELLATIONS
10.1 The Company will replace Goods which are damaged, defective or incorrectly shipped. The Customer must examine all Goods as soon as possible and notify the Company in writing of any issues.

10.2 If you wish to cancel your Contract you must inform us immediately in writing. No cancellation will be effective unless agreed in writing by the Company on terms that the Customer shall indemnify the Company in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs, (including the cost of all labour and materials used), damages, charges and expenses incurred by the Company as a result of cancellation. The Company is not obliged to agree cancellations of Orders, save to the extent required by law.
