2.1 These Terms and Conditions shall form the basis of the Contract between us and you in relation to the sale of Goods, to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions which you may seek to impose or incorporate by any document or confirmation of order, or which are implied by trade, practice, custom or course of dealing. Please check that the details in the Terms and Conditions or on the Order are complete and accurate before you commit yourself to the Contract. If you think that there is a mistake, please make sure that you ask us to confirm any changes in writing. Please ensure that you read and understand these Terms and Conditions before you submit the Order, because you will be bound by the Terms and Conditions once a Contract comes into existence between us.
2.2 An Order for Goods shall be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase Goods from us pursuant to these Terms and Conditions. You shall ensure that the terms of the Order are complete and accurate.
2.3 An Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when we issue a written acceptance of the Order, at which point the Contract shall come into existence.
2.4 Acceptance of delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to be conclusive evidence of your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
2.5 These Conditions represent the whole of the agreement between us and you but we reserve the right to revise and amend these Terms from time to time.
3.1 All online transaction information is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information will pass unencrypted and we will not see card details when an order is placed online. None of your personal information can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
3.2 If the purchase of Goods is on-line, payment of the Price shall be made at the point of purchase through the secure payment system on our website.
3.3 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the Goods' correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you. If the Goods' correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject the Order and tell you. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing, we do not have to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
3.4 For agreed account holders, payment of the Price shall be due within 30 days of the date of our invoice. We reserve the right to withdraw agreed account facilities.
3.5 Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue from the date when payment becomes due calculated on a daily basis until the date of payment at the rate of 4% per annum above the Bank of England base rate from time to time in force. Such interest shall accrue after as well as before any judgement.
3.6 You shall pay all accounts in full and not exercise any rights of set-off, counter-claim or abatement against invoices submitted by us.
3.7 Without limiting any other remedies or rights that we may have, if you do not pay us on time, we may cancel or suspend any other outstanding Order until you have paid the outstanding amounts.
