b) No order which has been accepted by the Company may be cancelled by the Customer except with the written agreement of the Company and on terms that the Customer will indemnify the Company in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs (including the cost of all labour and materials used), damages, charges and expenses incurred by the Company as a result of cancellation.
c) No variation or amendment shall be made to these conditions unless the same is confirmed in writing by the Company.
d) The Company’s employees or agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless confirmed by the Company in writing. In entering into the Contract the Customer acknowledges that it does not rely on any such representations which are not so confirmed, but nothing in these Terms affects the liability of either party for fraudulent misrepresentation.

b) Subject to express agreement in writing to the contrary orders will be invoiced at the prices ruling at the time of dispatch.
c) Quoted prices do not include any applicable Value Added Tax, which will be added at the date of invoicing.
4. Terms of Payment
a) The Customer shall pay the price of the Goods within 30 days of the date of invoice, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company, and the Company shall be entitled to recover the price, notwithstanding that delivery may not have taken place and property in the Goods has not passed to the Customer. The time of payment of the price of the Goods is of the essence of the Contract.
b) If the Customer fails to make any payment on the due date then, without limiting any other right or remedy to the Company, the Company may: (i) cancel the contract or suspend any further deliveries to the Customer; (ii) appropriate any payment made by the Customer to such of the Goods (or the goods supplied under any other contract between the Company and the Customer) as the Company sees fit (notwithstanding any purported appropriation by the Customer; (iii) charge the Customer interest (both before and after judgment) on the amount unpaid, at the rate of three per cent per annum above Barclays Bank base rate from time to time, until payment in full is made ( a part of a month being treated as a full month for the purpose of calculating interest).
a) Delivery of the goods shall be ex-works the Company, unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing.
b) Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only and the Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods howsoever caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the contract.
c) Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Company to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Terms or any claim by the Customer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Customer to treat the contract as a whole as repudiated.
d) If the Customer fails to take delivery of the Goods (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond the Customer’s reasonable control or by reason of the Company’s fault) then, without limiting any other right or remedy available to the Company, the Company may: (i) Store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Customer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or (ii) Sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to the Customer for the excess over the price under the contract or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price under the contract.

b) Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, or any other provision of these Terms, the property in the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the Company has received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the price of the Goods and all other goods agreed to be sold by the Company to the Customer for which payment is then due.
c) Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Customer, the Customer shall hold the Goods as the Company’s fiduciary agent and bailee, and shall keep the Goods separate from those of the Customer and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and identified as the Company’s property, but the Customer may resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business.
d) Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Customer (and provided the Goods are still in existence and have not been resold), the Company may at any time require the Customer to deliver up the Goods to the Company and, if the Customer fails to do so forthwith, enter on any premises of the Customer or any third party where the Goods are stored and repossess the Goods.
e) The Customer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods which remain the property of the Company, but if the Customer does so all moneys owing by the Customer to the Company shall (without limiting any other right or remedy of the Company) forthwith become due and payable.

f) If you have changed your mind and wish to cancel the order and return the goods in original packaging, unopened and in a fully re-saleable condition within 7 days of the date of our invoice. A re-stocking fee of 10% will be applicable. This charge represents the shipping and handling charge that applied to your goods when originally shipped. If the goods are returned within 30 days of the date of our invoice a restocking fee of 15% will apply. If the goods are returned within 30 days but are not in their original packaging, used, damaged or otherwise not in a fully re-saleable condition then a re-stocking fee will be confirmed following our inspection of the goods. The restocking fee will be deducted from your total refund. The responsibility for returning the goods to us is yours and a refund will not be given until the goods have been checked by us on receipt. The above rules also apply where goods are exchanged for alternative products.
