(a)   each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note that shows the date of the Order, the contract number, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable), special storage instructions (if any) and, if the Goods are being delivered by instalments, the outstanding balance of Goods remaining to be delivered; and

(b)   if the Supplier requires the Customer to return any packaging materials to the Supplier, that fact is clearly stated on the delivery note.

5.6   If the Customer fails to accept delivery of the Goods within three Business Days of the Carrier attempting to deliver them, then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Supplier's failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract the Supplier may resell part of, or all the Goods and after deducting any reasonable storage and selling costs, account to you for any excess over the price of the Goods or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price of the Goods

6.      International Delivery

However, there are restrictions on some Goods for certain International Delivery Destinations, as a result the Customer is advised to review the information on that page carefully before ordering Goods.

6.2   If the Customer orders Goods from the Supplier’s site for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, their order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination.

8.      Title and risk

8.1   The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on completion of delivery.

(a)   the Supplier receives payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the Goods and any other goods that the Supplier has supplied to the Customer in respect of which payment has become due, in which case title to the Goods shall pass at the time of payment of all such sums; and

(b)   the Customer resells the Goods, in which case title to the Goods shall pass to the Customer at the time specified in clause 8.4.

8.3   Until title to the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall:

(a)   store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as the Supplier's property;

(b)   not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;

(c)   maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery;

(d)   notify the Supplier immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 11.1(b) to clause 11.1(d); and

(e)   give the Supplier such information as the Supplier may reasonably require from time to time relating to:

(i)   the Goods; and

(ii)   the ongoing financial position of the Customer.

8.4   Subject to clause 8.5, the Customer may resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business (but not otherwise) before the Supplier receives payment for the Goods. However, if the Customer resells the Goods before that time:

(a)   it does so as principal and not as the Supplier’s agent; and

(b)   title to the Goods shall pass from the Supplier to the Customer immediately before the time at which resale by the Customer occurs.

8.5   At any time before title to the Goods passes to the Customer:

(a)   the Supplier may by notice in writing, terminate the Customer's right under clause 8.4 to resell the Goods or use them in the ordinary course of its business; and

(b)   require the Customer to deliver up all Goods in its possession that have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product and if the Customer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are stored in order to recover them.

9.      Price, Delivery Charges and Payment

9.1   The price of the Goods will be as quoted on the Suppliers website at the time the Customer submits their Order. The Supplier takes all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Goods are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However, please see Clause 9.5 for what happens if the Supplier discovers an error in the price of Goods ordered.

9.2   The Supplier may, by giving notice to the Customer at any time up to 30 Business Days before delivery, increase the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost of the Goods that is due to:

(a) any factor beyond the Supplier's control (including foreign exchange fluctuations, increases in taxes and duties, and increases in labour, materials and other manufacturing costs);

(b)   any request by the Customer to change the delivery date(s), quantities or types of Goods ordered; or

(c)   any delay caused by any instructions of the Customer or failure of the Customer to give the Supplier adequate or accurate information or instructions.

9.3   The price of the Goods excludes amounts in respect of value added tax (VAT), which the Customer shall additionally be liable to pay to the Supplier at the prevailing rate, subject to the receipt of a valid VAT invoice. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Customers Order and the date of delivery, the Supplier will adjust the VAT that the Customer pays, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

9.4   The price of the Goods does not include delivery charges. The Suppliers delivery charges are as advised during the check-out process, before the Customer confirms their Order.  To check relevant delivery charges, please contact the Supplier.

9.5   The Supplier sells a large number of Goods through their site. It is always possible that, despite their reasonable efforts, some of the Goods on the site may be incorrectly priced. If the Supplier discovers an error in the price of the Goods ordered they will contact the Customer in writing to inform them of the error. The Supplier will give the Customer the option of continuing to purchase the Goods at the correct price or cancelling the Order. The Supplier will not process the Order until they have the Customers instructions. If the Supplier is unable to contact the Customer using the contact details provided during the order process, they will treat the order as cancelled and notify the Customer in writing. If the Supplier mistakenly accepts and processes the Order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by the Customer as a mispricing, the Supplier may cancel supply of the Goods and refund the Customer any sums they have paid.

9.6   The Supplier shall not be bound to deliver the Goods until the Customer has paid for them. The Supplier shall issue an invoice upon receipt of the Order, payment shall be due before the Goods can be delivered and time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.

9.7   The Supplier may invoice the Customer for the Goods on or at any time after the completion of delivery.

9.8   The Customer shall pay for each Order at the time the Customer submits their Order.

9.9   If the Customer fails to make a payment due to the Supplier under the Contract by the due date, then, without limiting the Supplier's remedies under clause 11 (Termination), the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment. Interest under this clause 9.9 will accrue each day at 4% a year above the Bank of England's base rate from time to time, but at 4% a year for any period when that base rate is below 0%.

9.10   All amounts due under the Contract shall be paid in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

10.      Limitation of liability

10.1   The Supplier has obtained product liability insurance cover in respect of its own legal liability for individual claims not exceeding £5 million per claim. The limits and exclusions in this clause reflect the insurance cover the Supplier has been able to arrange and the Customer is responsible for making its own arrangements for the insurance of any excess loss.

10.2   The restrictions on liability in this clause 10 apply to every liability arising under or in connection with the Contract including liability in contract, tort (including negligence), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise.

(c)   breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979; or

(d)   defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

10.4   Subject to clause 10.3, the Supplier's total liability to the Customer shall not exceed the total amount received by the Supplier for the Goods.

10.5   Subject to clause 10.3, the following types of loss are wholly excluded:

(a)   loss of profits;

(b)   loss of sales or business;

(c)   loss of agreements or contracts;

(d)   loss of anticipated savings;

10.7   Except as expressly stated in these Conditions, the Supplier does not give any representations, warranties or undertakings in relation to the Goods. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Conditions by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, the Supplier will not be responsible for ensuring that the Goods are suitable for your purposes.
