These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.

3. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1 Our acceptance of your order will take place when we tell you that we are able to provide you with the product at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.2 If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.3 We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
4.1 The images of the products 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 or the printed pictures in our brochure accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
4.2 If we are making the product to measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. You can find information and tips on how to measure in our brochure or on our website, or by contacting us.
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing for delivery or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
6.1 We may change the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
6.2 In addition, we may make changes to these terms or the product, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract and receive a full refund before the changes take effect.
7. PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS
7.1 The costs of delivery will be as told to you during the order process.
7.2 During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you.
(a) If the product is one-off purchase (rather than a subscription) we will deliver it to you as soon as possible. We will contact you with an estimated delivery date.
(b) We will deliver the products to you WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK OF EACH MONTH until either you end the contract as described in clause 8 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 9.
7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our delivery of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.
7.4 If you have asked to collect the products from our premises, you can collect the products from us at any time during our working hours of 9AM to 4PM on weekdays WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK OF EACH MONTH.
7.5 If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to re-arrange delivery.
7.6 If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 9.2 will apply.
7.7 You have legal rights if we deliver any products late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any products then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) We have refused to deliver the products;
(b) Delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) You told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
7.8 If the reasons above do not apply or you do not wish to cancel the contract as, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
7.9 If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.8 or clause 7.9, you can cancel your order for any of the products or reject products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products and their delivery. If the products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this.
7.10 The product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you collect it from us.
7.11 You own the products once we have received payment in full.
7.12 We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
(a) Deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
(b) Update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
(c) Make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
7.13 We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product for longer than 3 MONTHS you may contact us to end the contract. In such case we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
7.14 If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see clause 11.4) and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 11.5).

11. PRICE AND PAYMENT
11.1 The price of the product (which excludes VAT) will be the price set out in our price list in force at the date of your order unless we have agreed another price in writing. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 11.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
11.2 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated in our price list, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may terminate the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require you to return the product at our expense.

14.5 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
