2. Application of these Conditions
2.1 Any price or quotation provided by us for the provision of Goods prior to you submitting an Order:
2.1.1 is for information purposes only. It is not a binding offer by us to supply Goods on the terms of the quotation and these Conditions; and
2.1.2 will be valid for 28 days only from the date of issue.
2.1.3 When you place an Order to purchase Goods from us and tick the box indicating your acceptance of these Conditions, you make a binding offer to purchase those Goods in accordance with these Conditions.
2.1.4 After your placing of an Order, we will email you an acknowledgment of receipt of your Order. This does not mean that your Order has been accepted.
2.1.5 We reserve the right at all times to reject any Order, in whole or in part, at our sole discretion.
2.1.6 A Contract will be formed in respect of the Goods described in our acceptance of your Order, upon the sending by us of an email to you confirming that your Order has been accepted and is being processed.
2.1.7 We will not accept any variation to these Conditions, an Order or quotation from us unless the variation is expressly agreed by us and confirmed by email.
2.1.8 If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the Goods. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline.
2.1.9 The images of the Goods on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. The Goods may vary slightly from those images.
3.1 The price for the Goods will be as set out in the Order or in default of such provision, will be calculated in accordance with our standard scale of charges in force on the date of your Order as set out on our website.
3.2 The price:
3.2.1 includes Value Added Tax (where applicable); and
3.2.2 does not include the delivery charges.
3.3 The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on the website.
3.4 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where the Goods’ correct price at your Order date is less than our stated price at your Order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Goods’ 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.
4.1 You must pay for the Goods included in your Order by submitting your credit or debit card details with your Order. We will deduct payment for the Goods set out in our acceptance notice of your Order.
4.2 VAT will be charged by us (but included in the price of the Goods) and paid by you at the then applicable rate.
5. Title and risk
5.1 Risk in the Goods will pass to you on delivery. We will not be liable for any loss or destruction of the Goods occurring after they are delivered to you.
5.2 Ownership to the Goods will pass to you once we have received payment in full from you. (Not applicable to any instances where we agree to loan the Goods to you.)
6. Cancellation and Suspension Rights
6.1 You may cancel any Order at any time in writing to us up to the end of the fourteenth business day from the date of delivery of the Goods.
6.2 If you cancel an Order after delivery of the relevant Goods, you must send the Goods back to us at your own cost and expense. You must take reasonable care of the Goods and they must be returned to us in their original, unopened packaging. You remain liable for the Goods, including for their accidental loss or destruction, until delivery of the Goods back to us.
6.3 We shall reimburse any sums paid by you for the Goods as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of receipt of cancellation of your Order, less our reasonable direct costs of recovering the Goods if you fail to pay the costs of sending the Goods back to us, subject to your taking reasonable care of the Goods until delivery of them back to us.
6.4 We may have to suspend the supply of Goods to:
6.4.1 deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; and/or
6.4.2 update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements
6.5 We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the Goods, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You may contact us to end the contract for Goods if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 60 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for Goods in respect of the period after you end the contract.

7.4.1 in the normal course of use of the Goods or as a result of wilful damage or your negligence;
7.4.2 to the extent caused by your failure to comply with our user manual supplied or included with the Goods (“User Manual”) as to storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the Goods;

7.6 The warranty set out in condition 7.1 is transferable, if the Goods (but not the related accessories, consumables and documentation) are sold on by a consumer to a private individual (but not a company), provided proof of the original purchase by the original consumer is provided to us.
8.1 Nothing in these Conditions is intended to exclude our liability where consumer protection legislation or contract law prevents us from doing so, including:
8.1.1 for death or personal injury caused by our negligence; or

8.3 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. 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 under these Conditions for supply of our Goods to consumers.
