The price quoted excludes delivery (unless otherwise stated).
Unless otherwise stated, the price quoted is an illustrative estimate only and the price charged will be our price current at the time of delivery.

If we fail to deliver within a reasonable time, you may (by informing us in writing) cancel the contract, however:
you may not cancel if we receive your notice after the goods have been dispatched; and
if you cancel the contract, you can have no further claim against us under that contract.
If you accept delivery of the goods after the estimated delivery time, it will be on the basis that you have no claim against us for delay (including indirect or consequential loss, or increase in the price of the goods).
We may deliver the goods in instalments. Each instalment is treated as a separate contract.
Delivery and safety
We may decline to deliver if:
we believe that it would be unsafe, unlawful or unreasonably difficult to do so; or
the premises (or the access to them) are unsuitable for our vehicle.
The goods are at your risk from the time of delivery.
Delivery takes place either:
at our premises (if you are collecting them or arranging carriage); or
at your premises (if we are arranging carriage).
You must inspect the goods on delivery. If any goods are damaged (or not delivered), you must write to tell us within five working days of delivery (or the expected delivery time). You must give us (and any carrier) a fair chance to inspect the damaged goods.

we may suspend or cancel future deliveries;
we may cancel any discount offered to you;
you must pay us interest at the rate set under s.6 of the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998
calculated (on a daily basis) from the date of our invoice until payment;
compounded on the first day of each month; and
before and after any judgment (unless a court orders otherwise);
we may claim fixed sum compensation from you under s.5A of that Act to cover our credit control overhead costs; and
we may recover (under clause 5.7) the cost of taking legal action to make you pay.
If you have an approved credit account, we may withdraw it or reduce your credit limit or bring forward your due date for payment. We may do any of those at any time without notice.

While you owe money to us, we have a lien on any of your property.
You are to indemnify us in full and hold us harmless from all expenses and liabilities we may incur (directly or indirectly including financing costs and including legal costs on a full indemnity basis) following any breach by you of any of your obligations under these terms
Until you pay all debts you may owe us:
all goods supplied by us remain our property;
you must store them so that they are clearly identifiable as our property;
you must insure them (against the risks for which a prudent owner would insure them) and hold the policy on trust for us;
you may use those goods and sell them in the ordinary course of your business, but not if:
we revoke that right (by informing you in writing); or
you become insolvent.
You must inform us (in writing) immediately if you become insolvent.
If your right to use and sell the goods ends you must allow us to remove the goods.
We have your permission to enter any premises where the goods may be stored:
at any time, to inspect them; and
after your right to use and sell them has ended, to remove them, using reasonable force if necessary.
Despite our retention of title to the goods, we have the right to take legal proceedings to recover the price of goods supplied should you not pay us by the due date.
You are not our agent. You have no authority to make any contract on our behalf or in our name.
We warrant that the goods:
comply with their description on our acknowledgement of order form; and
are free from material defect at the time of delivery (as long as you comply with clause 7.3).
We give no other warranty (and exclude any warranty, term or condition that would otherwise be implied) as to the quality of the goods or their fitness for any purpose.
If you believe that we have delivered goods which are defective in materials or workmanship, you must:
inform us (in writing), with full details, as soon as possible; and
allow us to investigate (we may need access to your premises and product samples).

you must ensure that the specifications or instructions are accurate and that your materials are of good quality;
you must ensure that goods prepared in accordance with those specifications or instructions will be fit for the purpose for which you intend to use them; and
you must ensure that our use of your specifications, instructions or materials will not result in the infringement of any intellectual property rights of any other person.
If you have any intellectual property rights over the goods, you agree that you will not enforce those rights in respect of goods you order from us (even if the order is cancelled).
We reserve the right to make any changes in the specifications of our goods which are necessary to ensure they conform with any applicable safety or other statutory requirements.
We also reserve the right to make without notice any minor modifications in our specifications we think necessary or desirable.
Return of goods
We will accept the return of goods from you only:
by prior arrangement (confirmed in writing);
on payment of an agreed handling charge (unless the goods were defective when delivered); and
where the goods are as fit for sale on their return as they were on delivery.
Where the goods are supplied by us to you by way of export from the United Kingdom Clause 10 of these terms applies (except to the extent that it is inconsistent with any written agreement between us).

We are not liable for death or personal injury arising from the use of the goods delivered in the territory of another State (within the meaning of s.26 (3) (b) Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977).

We may suspend or cancel the order, by written notice if:
you fail to pay us any money when due (under the order or otherwise);
you become insolvent;
you fail to honour your obligations under these terms.

made (or recorded) in writing;
signed on behalf of each party; and
expressly stating an intention to vary these terms.
All orders that you place with us will be on these terms (or any that we may issue to replace them). By placing an order with us, you are expressly waiving any printed terms you may have to the extent that they are inconsistent with our terms.
If we are unable to perform our obligations to you (or able to perform them only at unreasonable cost) because of circumstances beyond our control, we may cancel or suspend any of our obligations to you, without liability.
Examples of those circumstances include act of God, accident, explosion, fire, flood, transport delays, strikes and other industrial disputes and difficulty in obtaining supplies.
English law is applicable to any contract made under these terms. The English and Welsh courts have non-exclusive jurisdiction.
If you are more than one person, each of you has joint and several obligations under these terms.

We may treat you as insolvent if:
you are unable to pay your debts as they fall due; or

contained in our estimate (or any covering letter) and not withdrawn before the contract is made; or

Colour may not be accurately represented due to errors in the photographic representations, or variations in display settings and apparatus. 1.1 Details of delivered goods may vary due to differences at time of manufacture. This may be due to the image displayed being a 'sample' as received by the original manufacturer, shortages of original materials, or variations on handmade items.
