2.7 After the Customer has submitted the Order, it may receive a notification email from the Company acknowledging that it has received the Order. This does not mean that the Order has been accepted.

2.12 These Conditions and any Contract between the Company and the Customer are in the English language only.
- Orders/specification description
3.1 The Goods shall be supplied in accordance with the Specification.
3.2 The Specification may change from time to time in order to comply with safety or statutory requirements or at the Company’s discretion if such changes do not materially affect the quality or fitness for the purpose of the Goods.
3.3 The Customer shall inspect the Goods on delivery and shall within seven days of delivery notify the Company of any apparent defect, shortage in quantity, damage or failure to comply with the Specification. If the Customer shall fail to comply with these provisions, the Goods shall be presumed to be in accordance with the Contract and free from any defect or damage which would be apparent on reasonable examination of the Goods and the Customer should be deemed to have accepted the Goods.
3.4 Any cancellation of the Order by the Customer must be received by the Company no less than 16 weeks from the Delivery Date, which will be specified in the Company’s Confirmation Email. For cancellations received less than 16 weeks before the Delivery Date, the Customer shall pay the Company 100% of the value of the Contract to which the cancellation relates.
3.5 The Customer may not reschedule the Delivery Date within 16 weeks or less of the Delivery Date. Outside of 16 weeks from Delivery Date, the Customer may reschedule the date for delivery to one that is within 16 weeks of the original Delivery Date.
4.1 The Goods shall be delivered to the Customer at the address for delivery provided to the Company by the Customer at the time the Customer places the Order.
4.2 If the Goods are to be delivered to an address in the United Kingdom, the Company shall arrange and pay for the carriage and insure the Goods from despatch until delivery. Delivery will be arranged by the Company.
4.3 The Company also delivers to International Delivery Destinations.

The Company has no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. The Customer will be responsible for payment of such import duties, taxes and charges.
4.4 Delivery will be completed when the Company delivers the Goods to the address provided by the Customer and the Customer shall make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery. Failure to take delivery shall entitle the Company to charge an administrative fee.

The Company will not be liable for any loss or damage whatever due to any failure to deliver the Goods on the Delivery Date. Any failure to deliver the Goods on the Delivery Date shall not constitute a breach of the Contract nor shall the Customer be entitled to treat the Contract as thereby repudiated or to rescind it or any related Contract in whole or in part or claim compensation for such failure or any consequential loss or damage resulting therefrom.
4.7 The Company shall only be obligated to accept delivery of returned Goods that are shipped by the Customer after Customer obtained the Company’s return material authorisation (“RMA”) and RMA number. As a condition of issuing a RMA, the Company may require the Customer to provide the Customer’s account number and other reasonably required information.

5.4 Notwithstanding that the Goods (or any of them) remain the property of the Company the Customer may use or sell the Goods in the ordinary course of the Customer’s business for market value for the account of the Company. Any such sale or dealings should be a sale or use of the Company’s property by the Customer on the Customer’s own behalf and the Customer shall deal as principal when making sales or dealings.

On the making of such request the rights of the Customer under clause 5.3 above shall cease.
