2. Basis of Contract
2.1 These Conditions apply to the Contract, to any supply of Company goods and to any Order raised by the Buyer, to the exclusion of any other terms that the Buyer seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by law, trade custom, practice or course of dealing.
2.2 The Order constitutes an offer by the Buyer to purchase the Goods in accordance with these Conditions. The Buyer is responsible for ensuring that the terms of the Order are complete and accurate.
2.3 The Order shall only be deemed accepted when the Company issues its invoice for the Goods or dispatches the Goods for delivery or confirms a written acceptance of the Order to the Buyer, whichever is soonest, at which point, the Contract shall come into existence.
2.4 The Buyer waives any right it might have to rely on any term endorsed on, delivered with, contained or referred to in any documents of the Buyer (including any Order), except as expressly agreed in writing by the Company. If the Company agrees to any special terms, the same shall be expressly set out in writing by the Company in which case such special terms shall prevail over these Conditions.
2.5 Any quotation given by the Company shall not constitute an offer. Any quotation given shall only be valid for 30 days from its date of issue.
2.6 Any samples, drawings or advertising produced by the Company and any illustrations in the Company’s catalogues or brochures are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the goods referred to in them. They shall not form part of the Contract nor have any contractual force.
2.7 Once a Contract is formed, the Buyer may cancel the Order only with the written agreement of the Company and the Buyer will indemnify the Company against all costs, expenses, claims and losses incurred prior to or arising from the Order cancellation.
3. Trade accounts
3.1 Except as otherwise expressly agreed by the Company, the Company will only deal with the Buyer where the Buyer has a trade account with the Company.
3.2 To open a trade account, a Buyer must complete an account application form. The Buyer must provide all relevant, accurate application details.
3.3 The Company is not obliged to accept any Buyer for a trade account. Acceptance is entirely at the Company’s discretion and subject to appropriate checks.
3.4 The Company reserves the right to consult third parties as necessary and at any time, for trade and credit references and will record that information.
3.5 The Company reserves the right to vary, close or suspend any trade account as it may determine, with or without reason. Without affecting the generality of the foregoing, the Company reserves the right to vary, close or suspend any trade account if it reasonably believes there is material deterioration in Buyer creditworthiness.
3.6 The Company may stipulate conditions for any trade account as it determines including credit limits or payment terms and may vary them at any time. By placing any Order, the Buyer agrees to such stipulated conditions which will be incorporated into each Contract and these Conditions will be deemed varied accordingly.
3.7 The Company shall not be obliged to accept any Order and may refuse or otherwise not supply in response to, any Order at any time as it determines. This applies whether a Buyer has a trade account or not. This right is in addition to the Company’s rights referred to in clauses 4.4 to 4.6 inclusive.
3.8 Granting of trade credit is entirely at the Company’s discretion.
3.9 Where the Company agrees to open a trade account, it will issue a customer account number which the Buyer must use each time it places an Order.
4.1 The Goods are described in the Company’s catalogue but such information is provided for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods only and the Buyer is responsible for ensuring that it accurately describes the goods it intends to purchase when placing an Order.
4.2 The Company reserves the right to amend the description or specification of the Goods if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.
4.3 If the Company becomes aware of an error in its catalogue relating to Goods description or pricing, it will aim to notify the Buyer where such error is relevant to an Order but in the event of any such errors, the Company reserves the right to cancel any such Order. If an error, including as to pricing is obvious and could reasonably have be recognised by the Buyer as such, the Company will not be liable for any reliance by the Buyer on such information.
4.4 The availability of goods and stock levels held by the Company may vary from time to time and the Company gives no guarantee or assurance that goods which are shown in its catalogue or brochure or referenced in its price list will be available for supply at any time whether in whole or in part. The Company also reserves the right to discontinue any goods at any time and does not undertake to update its catalogue, brochures or price lists. In the event that an Order is received by the Company but in respect of which it is unable to supply goods (whether in whole or in part), nothing shall oblige the Company to accept such Order or supply such goods and in such circumstances;
4.4.1 where the full scope of the Buyer’s Order cannot be fulfilled due to goods being out of stock, discontinued or similar, then no Contract shall be formed (such that no invoice will be issued or goods dispatched, taking account of clause 2.3); or
4.4.2 where the Buyer’s Order can be fulfilled only in part, the Contract shall be formed in respect of those Goods which are available for supply only.
4.5 Nothing in clause 4.4 shall affect the Company’s right to deliver Goods in instalments in accordance with clause 5.11.
4.6 Given the nature of the Company’s business, in the event that an Order is received in respect of which any goods are out of stock, discontinued or otherwise not available for supply, the Company shall not be obliged to notify the Buyer of that fact and the Company reserves the right simply not to dispatch the relevant goods or part thereof or otherwise not accept the Order as the case may be, whether it has notified the Buyer as to the lack of availability or discontinuation of the goods or not.
5.1 The Company shall ensure that each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note that shows the date of the Order, the contract number, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable).
5.2 The Company shall deliver the Goods to the location set out in the Order or such other location as the parties may agree in writing (Delivery Location).
5.3 Delivery is completed when the Goods are tendered for delivery at the Delivery Location by the Company (or its third party delivery service provider).
5.4 Where the Delivery Location is to be the Company’s premises such that the Buyer will collect the Goods, collection arrangements must be agreed in advance with the Company. Collection of the Goods is only permitted where expressly agreed to by the Company.
5.5 Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence.
5.6 The Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods that is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Buyer’s failure to provide the Company with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods. In such circumstances, the Company reserves the right to extend any indicated time for delivery by such period as the Force Majeure Event continues or as caused due to inadequate instruction and may also increase the price of the Goods as relevant to take account of the Force Majeure Event or the failure of the Buyer to provide adequate instructions in accordance with this clause 5.6.
5.7 Subject at all times to clauses 4.4 to 4.6, if once the Company has accepted an Order and a Contract is formed in accordance with clause 2.3, the Company then fails to deliver the Goods due to its default, its liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Buyer in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods and the Company shall have no other liability whatsoever. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this clause 5.7 is intended in any way to affect the Company’s rights set out in clauses 4.4 to 4.6 to not accept an Order or supply goods in the circumstances referred to in those clauses.
5.8 The Company shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Goods to the extent that such failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Buyer’s failure to provide the Company with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
5.9 If the Buyer fails to accept delivery of the Goods within three Business Days of the Company first tendering the Goods for delivery then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Company’s failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract:
5.9.1 delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to have been completed at 9:00 am on the fourth Business Day after the day on which the Company first sought to deliver the Goods; and
5.9.2 the Company shall store the Goods until delivery takes place and charge the Buyer for all related costs and expenses (including insurance).
5.10 If the Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods, the Company may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling costs, charge the Buyer for any shortfall below the price of the Goods.
5.11 The Company may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Buyer to cancel any other instalment.
5.12 The Buyer must notify the Company immediately on becoming aware of any non-delivery of the Goods and in any event by no later than 7 days following the date of invoice.
6.1 The Company warrants the Goods shall:
6.1.1 conform in all material respects with their description;
6.1.2 be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship; and
6.1.3 be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979).

6.2.2 the Company is given a reasonable opportunity of examining such Goods prior to any further use of the Goods following notification of the alleged defect; and
6.2.3 the Buyer (if asked to do so by the Company) returns such Goods to the Company’s place of business at the Buyer’s cost or if return in not practicable, the Company may at the Buyer’s cost, inspect the Goods at the Buyer’s place of business or such other location as the Company may agree to;
220.127.116.11 the Company shall, at its option, repair or replace the defective Goods, or refund the price the defective Goods in full.
6.3 The Company shall not be liable for the Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 6.1 in any of the following events:
6.3.1 the Buyer makes any further use of such Goods after giving notice in accordance with clause 6.2;
6.3.2 the defect arises because the Buyer failed to follow the Company’s oral or written instructions as to the storage, installation, use and maintenance of the Goods or (if there are none), good trade practice regarding the same;
6.3.3 the Buyer alters or repairs such Goods without the prior written consent of the Company;
6.3.4 the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, willful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or

6.4 Except as provided in this clause 6, the Company shall have no liability to the Buyer in respect of the Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 6.1.
6.5 The terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract.

6.8 The Buyer should satisfy itself that the Goods are suitable for any particular purpose for which it purchases the Goods including as to any samples made available by the Company.

7.1 The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer on completion of delivery and the Buyer is advised to insure the Goods thereafter against all risks which a prudent businessperson may insure against.
7.2 Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the earlier of:

12.1 Neither party shall be in breach of the Contract nor liable for delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations under the Contract if such delay or failure results from events, circumstances or causes beyond its reasonable control (including fire, flood, trade embargo, Government action, explosion, delay in supplies, plant or other breakdown, interference by labour strikes, disputes or lockouts, accident or non-availability of transport or materials, epidemic or pandemic) (each a Force Majeure Event).
12.2 Except with regard to any payment obligations of the Buyer, in such circumstances and in addition to the rights afforded to the Company in accordance with clause 5.6 and clause 5.8, the time for performance shall be extended by a period equivalent to the period during which performance of the obligation has been delayed or failed to be performed. If the period of delay or non-performance continues for 3 (three) months or more, the party not affected may terminate the Contract by giving 7 days’ written notice to the affected party.
12.3 Except with regard to payment obligations of the Buyer, a party which is prevented or delayed in performing its obligations under the Contract as a result of the Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2 /Coronavirus) pandemic or as a result of any measures put in place as a result of the pandemic including any lockdown, partial lockdown, Government action or guidance (whether central or local), rules, restrictions, Covid related laws or similar, shall be entitled to exercise the same rights in such circumstances to those in this clause 12 and clauses 5.6 and 5.8 as apply to a Force Majeure Event (whether or not the relevant event is also a Force Majeure Event).
13.1 The Company may at any time assign, transfer, mortgage, charge, subcontract, delegate, declare a trust over or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under the Contract.
13.2 The Buyer may not assign, transfer, mortgage, charge, subcontract, delegate, declare a trust over or deal in any other manner with any or all of its rights or obligations under the Contract without the prior written consent of the Company.
13.3 The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between them, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter. These Conditions supersede any previous terms and conditions issued by the Company.
13.4 Each party agrees that it shall have no remedies in respect of any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in the Contract. Each party agrees that it shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in this Contract.
13.5 Subject to the Company’s right in clause 4.4.2, no variation of the Contract shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the parties.
13.6 No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
13.7 If any provision or part-provision of the Contract is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Contract. If any provision of the Contract is deemed deleted under this clause 13.7, the parties shall negotiate in good faith to agree a replacement provision that, to the extent possible, achieves the intended commercial result of the original.
13.8 Any notice or other communication given to a party under or in connection with the Contract shall be in writing and shall be delivered by hand or by pre-paid first-class post or other next working day delivery service at its registered office (if a company) or its principal place of business (in any other case).
13.9 Any notice or communication shall be deemed to have been received; if delivered by hand, on signature of a delivery receipt or at the time the notice is left at the proper address; or if sent by pre-paid first-class post or other next working day service, at 9:00 am on the second Business Day after posting or at the time recorded by the delivery service.
13.10 This clause does not apply to the service of any proceedings or other documents in any legal action or other method of dispute resolution.
13.11 Unless expressly stated otherwise, the Contract does not give rise to any rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of the Contract. Any right which exists or is available apart from that Act is not affected. The rights of the parties to rescind or vary the Contract are not subject to the consent of any other person.
13.12 The Contract, and any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law. Each party irrevocably agrees that the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with the Contract or its subject matter or formation.
