employees and representatives with access to any premises under your control as required, provide
us with all information required to perform the services and obtain any necessary licenses and
consents (unless otherwise agreed).

the contract with immediate effect on written notice to you.

Basis of Sale

16. The description of the services and any goods in our website, catalogues, brochures or other form of

17. When an order has been made, we can reject it for any reason, although we will try to tell you the
reason without delay.

to the customer.

made after it has been entered into unless the variation is agreed by the customer and the supplier
in writing.
21. We intend that these Terms and Conditions apply only to a contract entered into by you as a
consumer where we, the supplier and you the customer, enter the contract at any of the suppliers
business premises, and where the contract is not a contract (i) for which an offer was made by the
customer in the supplier’s and the customer’s simultaneous physical presence away from those
premises, or (ii) made immediately after the customer was personally and individually addressed in
the supplier’s and the customer’s simultaneous physical presence away from those premises. If this
is not the case, you must tell us, so that we can provide you with a different contract with terms that
are more appropriate to you and which might, in some way, be better for you, e.g. by giving
cancellation rights pursuant to consumer protection law. Business premises means immovable retail
premises where we carry on business on a permanent basis or, in the case of movable retail
premises, on a usual basis.

Fees and Payment

22. The fees (Fees) for the services, the price of any Goods (if not included in the fees) and any additional

agreed period, failing any agreement:
a. In the case of Services, within a reasonable time; and
b. In the case of Goods, without undue delay and, in any event, not more than 30 calendar days
from the day on which the Contract is entered into.
26. In any case, regardless of events beyond our control, if we do not deliver the Services on time, you
can require us to reduce the Fees or charges by an appropriate amount (including the right to receive
a refund for anything already paid above the reduced amount). The amount of the reduction can,
where appropriate, be up to the full amount if the Fees or charges.
27. In any case, regardless of events beyond our control, if we do not deliver the Goods on time, you can
(in addition to any other remedies) treat the Contract at an end if:
a. We have refused to deliver the Goods, or if delivery on time is essential taking into account
all the relevant circumstances at the time the Contract was made, or you said to us before
the Contract was made that the delivery on time was essential; or
b. After we have failed to deliver on time, you have specified a later period which is
appropriate to the circumstances and we have not delivered within that period.
28. If you treat the Contract to an end, we will (in addition to other remedies) promptly return all
payments made under the Contract.
29. If you were entitled to treat the Contract at an end, but do not do so, you are not prevented from
cancelling the Order for any Goods or rejecting Goods that have been delivered and, if you do this,
we will (in addition to other remedies) without delay return all payments made under the Contract
for any such cancelled or rejected Goods. If the Goods have been delivered, you must return them or
allow us to collect them from you and we will pay the costs of this.
30. If any Goods form a commercial unit (a unit is a commercial unit if division of the unit would
materially impair the value of the Goods or the character of the unit) you cannot cancel or reject the
Order for some of those Goods without also cancelling or rejecting the Order for the rest of them.
31. We do not generally deliver to addresses outside England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the
Isle of Man and Channel Islands. If, however, we accept an Order for delivery outside that area, you
may need to pay import duties or other taxes, as we will not pay them.
32. You agree we may deliver the Goods in instalments if we suffer a shortage of stock or other genuine
and fair reason, subject to the above provisions and provided you are not liable for extra charges.
33. If you or your nominee fail, through no fault of ours, to take delivery of the Services at the delivery
location, we may charge the reasonable costs of storing and redelivering them.
34. The Goods will become your responsibility from the completion of delivery or customer collection.
You must, if reasonably practicable, examine the Goods before accepting them.

Risk and Title

35. Risk of damage to, or loss of, any Goods will pass to you when the Goods are delivered to you.
36. You do not own the Goods until we have received payment in full. If full payment is overdue or a
step occurs towards your bankruptcy, we can choose, by notice to cancel any delivery and end any
right to use the Goods still owned by you, in which case you must return them or allow us to collect

Withdrawal and Cancellation

37. You can withdraw the Order by telling us before the Contract is made, if you simply wish to change
your mind and without giving us a reason, and without incurring any liability.
38. You can cancel the Contract except for any Goods which are made to your special requirements by
telling us no later than 14 calendar days from the day the Contract was entered into. If you simply
wish to change your mind and without giving us a reason, and without liability, except in that case,
you must return to any of our business premises the Goods in undamaged condition at your own
expense. Then we must without delay refund to you the price for those Goods and Services which
have been paid for in advance, but we can retain any separate delivery charge. This does not affect
your rights when the reason for the cancellation is any defective Goods or Services.

the Contract; and
c. conform to their description.

guarantee provided with the Goods. This guarantee will take effect at the time the Goods are
delivered and will not reduce your legal rights.
44. In relation to the services, anything we say or write to you, or anything someone else says or writes
to you on our behalf, about us or about the Services, is a term of the Contract (which we must
comply with) if you take it into account when deciding to enter this Contract, or when making any
decision about the Services after entering into this Contract. Anything you take into account is
