5.1 The Supplier shall ensure that:
(a) each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the Order, all relevant reference numbers of the Customer and the Supplier, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable), special storage instructions (if any) and, if the Order is being delivered by instalments, the outstanding balance of Goods remaining to be delivered; and

5.8 The Customer shall not be entitled to reject the Goods if the Supplier delivers up to and including 5% more or less than the quantity of Goods ordered, but a pro rata adjustment shall be made to the Order invoice on receipt of notice from the Customer that the wrong quantity of Goods was delivered.

(d) the Customer alters or repairs such Goods without the written consent of the Supplier; or
(e) the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or
(f) the Goods differ from their description as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.

7.2 Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the earlier of:

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

9.2 This guarantee is in addition to your legal rights in relation to the Goods that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
10. PRICE AND PAYMENT
10.1 The price of the Goods will be set out in Our price list in force at the time We confirm your Order. Our prices may change at any time, but price changes will not affect Orders that We have confirmed with you.
10.2 The prices on our website and in our catalogue exclude VAT. VAT will be added at the checkout on the website. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Order and the date of delivery or performance, We will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
10.3 The prices for the Goods exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.
10.4 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 despatch 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 contact you to tell you and for your instructions. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, We do not have to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
10.5 Where We are providing Goods to you, you must make payment of the invoice in full and in cleared funds by the end of the month following the month the invoice was dated.
10.6 If you do not make any payment due to Us by the due date for payment, We may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall 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.
10.7 However, if you dispute an invoice in good faith and contact Us to let Us know promptly after you have received an invoice that you dispute it, clause 10.6 will not apply for the period of the dispute.
11. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
11.1 If We fail to comply with these Terms, We are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of Our breach of the Terms or Our negligence, but We are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if they were an obvious consequence of our breach or if they were contemplated by you and Us at the time we entered into this contract.
11.2 We only supply the Goods for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Goods for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose, and We have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
11.3 We do not exclude or limit in any way Our liability for:
(a) death or personal injury caused by Our negligence or the negligence of Our employees, agents or subcontractors;
(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
(c) breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979(title and quiet possession);
(d) breach of the terms implied by sections 13, 14 and 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (description, satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose and samples); and
(e) defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
12. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
12.1 We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of Our obligations under these Terms that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control.
12.2 An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond Our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks.
12.3 If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of Our obligations under these Terms:
(a) We will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
(b) Our obligations under these Terms will be suspended and the time for performance of Our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control. Where the Event Outside Our Control affects Our delivery of Goods to you, We will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over.
12.4 You may cancel the contract if an Event Outside Our Control takes place and you no longer wish Us to provide the Goods. Please see your cancellation rights under clause 13. We will only cancel the contract if the Event Outside Our Control continues for longer than 2 weeks in accordance with Our cancellation rights in clause 13.
13. YOUR RIGHTS TO CANCEL AND APPLICABLE REFUND
13.1 Before the Goods are delivered, you have the following rights to cancel an Order for Goods (other than made-to-measure Goods), including where you choose to cancel because We are affected by an Event Outside Our Control or We change these Terms under clause 3.1 to your material disadvantage:
(a) You may cancel any Order for Goods at any time before We despatch the Goods by contacting Us. We will confirm your cancellation in writing to you. (b) If you cancel an Order under clause 13.1(a) and you have made any payment in advance for Goods that have not been delivered to you, We will refund these amounts to you.
(c) Unfortunately, if you cancel an Order for Goods under clause 13.1(a) and We have already despatched your Goods to you, We will not be able to cancel your Order until it is delivered or collected. In this case, if you return the Goods to Us, We will have to charge you the cost of collection or you will have to pay the cost of returning the Goods back to Us. This will not affect your refund for the Goods, but any charge for collection will be deducted from the refund that is due to you.
13.2 Unfortunately, as the made-to-measure Goods are made to your requirements, you will not be able to cancel your Order once made (but this will not affect your legal rights as a consumer in relation to made-to-measure Goods that are faulty or not as described).
14. OUR RIGHTS TO CANCEL AND APPLICABLE REFUND
If We have to cancel an Order for Goods (including made-to-measure Goods) before the Goods are delivered:
(a) We may have to cancel an Order before the Goods are delivered, due to an Event Outside Our Control or the unavailability of stock. We will promptly contact you if this happens.
(b) If We have to cancel an Order under clause 14(a) and you have made any payment in advance for Goods that have not been delivered to you, We will refund these amounts to you.
(c) Where We have already started work on your Order for made-to-measure Goods by the time We have to cancel under clause 14(a), We will not charge you anything and you will not have to make any payment to Us.
