(b) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Products to you.

If we end the Contract in the situations set out in clause 8.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for Products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the Contract.

9. If there is a problem with the Products

9.1. How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the Products, please contact us using the contact details set out in clause 2

9.2. Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. In summary, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says that the Products must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.

9.3. Your obligation to allow us to collect rejected Products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject Products then please notify us so we can inspect the Products and/or arrange collection.

10. Price and payment

10.1. Where to find the price for the Products. The price of the Products (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Products advised to you is correct. However please see clause 10.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Products you order.

10.2. 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 Products, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

10.3. What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Products’ correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Products’ correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.

10.4. When you must pay and how you must pay. The payment methods we accept are detailed on our Website and as part of our order process. You must be authorised to use the debit card, credit card or other payment account which you use to pay for the Products. You must pay for the Products before we deliver them. We will not charge your credit card, debit card or payment account until we accept your order.

10.5. We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. This interest will accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

10.6. What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

11. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

11.1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the Contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

11.2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products; and for defective Products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

11.3. We are not liable for business losses. 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.

13. Other important terms

13.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.

13.2. You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

13.3. Nobody else has any rights under this Contract. This Contract is between you and us. No other person will have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

13.4. If a court finds part of this Contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the clauses 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.

13.5. 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. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

13.6. 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. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
