this document detailing the rights and responsibilities of the Parties
- The Seller is under a legal duty to supply Goods which are:
- of satisfactory quality;
- fit for purpose; and
- as described by the Seller.
- By ordering the Goods from the Seller, the Buyer makes an offer to buy the Goods for the price given by the Seller. There is no binding contract between the Parties at the time when the order is made.
- The Seller will contact the Buyer by email to tell the Buyer when the Goods have been dispatched. This Confirmation of Acceptance is the Seller’s acceptance of the Buyer’s order. When the Confirmation of Acceptance is received there will be a binding contract between the Parties in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. The binding contract will only be for the Goods that are included in the Confirmation of Acceptance. It may not cover all the Goods the Buyer ordered, for example if stock is unavailable.
4. PRICE AND PAYMENT
- Occasionally, the Seller’s prices may change between the date of the order and the date of the Seller’s Confirmation of Acceptance. Reasons for a price change include, but are not limited to, a change in the amount that the Seller is charged by their supplier(s) or a change in the VAT rate. What happens when the price changes depends on whether the new price is lower or higher than the price originally given:
- if the new price is lower than that originally given, the Seller will charge the lower price and dispatch the Goods;
- if the new price is higher than that originally given, the Seller will either cancel the order or contact the Buyer to confirm whether they would prefer to cancel or pay the higher price for the Goods.
- Without prejudice to any other legal right or remedy:
- if any agreed payment is not received by the Seller by the due date, the Seller can charge interest on the outstanding sum or sums. Interest will be charged at 5% per annum above the Bank of England base rate, accruing daily from the due date until payment is made;
- if the amounts not paid to the Seller when due total 10% or more of the total value of the Goods, the Seller is entitled to suspend performance until such time as the outstanding payments are made; and
- the Buyer will not refuse to pay any amount which is owed to the Seller where there is only a minor or inconsequential defect in the Goods.
- The Seller will arrange for the Goods to be delivered to the Buyer. Delivery will be attempted to the address given by the Buyer for the purpose.
- Dates or times for the delivery of the Goods given by the Seller are estimates and cannot be relied on as definitive. The Goods will be dispatched within an estimated 3 days from the date of the Seller’s Confirmation of Acceptance.

Delivery for the purposes of this clause includes attempted delivery at the delivery address given by the Buyer.
