8.3 If you cancel your Contract we will:
8.3.1 refund you the price you paid for the Goods. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.
0.0.1. refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Goods within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Goods delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
0.0.2. make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(a) if you have received the Goods and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Goods back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Goods back to us. For information about how to return Goods to us, see clause 8.6;
(b) if you have not received the Goods or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
0.1. If you have returned the Goods to us under this clause 8 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Goods in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
0.2. We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
0.3. If Goods have been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:

We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection;
0.3.2. unless the Goods are faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 8.4), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to us. If the Goods are of a type which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Goods to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the Goods from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
0.4. Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Goods that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 8 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9. Availability and delivery
9.1 Your order is not confirmed until a Branch has contacted you to confirm that your order can be fulfilled and agreed with you whether the Goods will be delivered to you or collected by you. At this point a Contract between us will be formed.
9.2 Receipt of an Order Acknowledgment by you does not constitute a guarantee or promise on our part that the Goods ordered are available. If the Goods ordered are not available, a Branch will contact you in accordance with 7.4.
9.3 If you choose to collect the goods from your Branch, you must take the Order Acknowledgment with you as proof of payment.

10.6.1 Where a Good's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when despatching the Goods to you.

10.6.2 If a Good's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before despatching the Goods, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.

The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when the Supplier issues a written acceptance of the Order, at which point the Contract shall come into existence.
The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties. The Customer acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of the Supplier which is not set out in the Contract.
Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter, or advertising produced by the Supplier and any descriptions or illustrations contained in the Supplier’s catalogues or brochures are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods described in them.

the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage,
negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or

the Customer resells the Goods, in which case title to the Goods shall pass to the Customer at the time specified in clause 6.4.
Until title to the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall:
store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as the Supplier’s property;
not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;
maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery;
notify the Supplier immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 8.2; and
give the Supplier such information relating to the Goods as the Supplier may require from time to time.
Subject to clause 6.5, the Customer may resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business (but not otherwise) before the Supplier receives payment for the Goods. However, if the Customer resells the Goods before that time:
it does so as principal and not as the Supplier’s agent; and
title to the Goods shall pass from the Supplier to the Customer immediately before the time at which resale by the Customer occurs.
If before title to the Goods passes to the Customer the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 8.2, then, without limiting any other right or remedy the Supplier may have:
the Customer’s right to resell the Goods or use them in the ordinary course of its business ceases immediately; and
the Supplier may at any time:
require the Customer to deliver up all Goods in its possession which have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product; and
if the Customer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are stored in order to recover them.
Price and payment
The price of the Goods shall be the price set out in the Order, or, if no price is quoted, the price set out in the Supplier’s published price list in force as at the date of delivery.
The Supplier may, by giving notice to the Customer at any time before delivery, increase the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost of the Goods that is due to:
any factor beyond the Supplier’s control (including foreign exchange fluctuations, increases in taxes and duties, and increases in labour, materials and other manufacturing costs);
any request by the Customer to change the delivery date(s), quantities or types of Goods ordered, or the Specification; or
any delay caused by any instructions of the Customer or failure of the Customer to give the Supplier adequate or accurate information or instructions.
The price of the Goods is exclusive of the costs and charges of packaging, insurance and transport of the Goods, which shall be invoiced to the Customer.
The price of the Goods is exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax (VAT). The Customer shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from the Supplier, pay to the Supplier such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Goods.
The Supplier may invoice the Customer for the Goods on or at any time after the completion of delivery.
The Customer shall pay the invoice in full and in cleared funds on or before the 30th of the month following the month the invoice is dated. Payment shall be made to the bank account nominated in writing by the Supplier. Time of payment is of the essence.
If the Customer fails to make any payment due to the Supplier under the Contract by the due date for payment, then the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% per annum above Bank of England's base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Customer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
The Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). The Supplier may at any time, without limiting any other rights or remedies it may have, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by the Supplier to the Customer.
Termination and suspension
If the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 8.2, the Supplier may terminate the Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice to the Customer.
For the purposes of clause 8.1, the relevant events are:
the Customer suspends, or threatens to suspend, payment of its debts, or is unable to pay its debts as they fall due or admits inability to pay its debts, or (being a company or limited liability partnership) is deemed unable to pay its debts within the meaning of section 123 of the Insolvency Act 1986, or (being an individual) is deemed either unable to pay its debts or as having no reasonable prospect of so doing, in either case, within the meaning of section 268 of the Insolvency Act 1986, or (being a partnership) has any partner to whom any of the foregoing apply;
the Customer commences negotiations with all or any class of its creditors with a view to rescheduling any of its debts, or makes a proposal for or enters into any compromise or arrangement with its creditors other than (where the Customer is a company) where these events take place for the sole purpose of a scheme for a solvent amalgamation of the Customer with one or more other companies or the solvent reconstruction of the Customer;
(being a company) a petition is filed, a notice is given, a resolution is passed, or an order is made, for or in connection with the winding up of the Customer, other than for the sole purpose of a scheme for a solvent amalgamation of the Customer with one or more other companies or the solvent reconstruction of the Customer;
(being a company) an application is made to court, or an order is made, for the appointment of an administrator or if a notice of intention to appoint an administrator is given or if an administrator is appointed over the Customer;

any event occurs, or proceeding is taken, with respect to the Customer in any jurisdiction to which it is subject that has an effect equivalent or similar to any of the events mentioned in clause 8.2.1 to clause 8.2.6 (inclusive);
the Customer suspends, threatens to suspends, ceases or threatens to cease to carry on all or a substantial part of its business;
the Customer’s financial position deteriorates to such an extent that in the Supplier’s opinion the Customer’s capability to adequately fulfil its obligations under the Contract has been placed in jeopardy; and
(being an individual) the Customer dies or, by reason of illness or incapacity (whether mental or physical), is incapable of managing his or her own affairs or becomes a patient under any mental health legislation.
Without limiting its other rights or remedies, the Supplier may suspend provision of the Goods under the Contract or any other contract between the Customer and the Supplier if the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 8.2.1 to clause 8.2.12, or the Supplier reasonably believes that the Customer is about to become subject to any of them, or if the Customer fails to pay any amount due under this Contract on the due date for payment.
On termination of the Contract for any reason the Customer shall immediately pay to the Supplier all of the Supplier’s outstanding unpaid invoices and interest.
Termination of the Contract, however arising, shall not affect any of the parties’ rights, remedies, obligations and liabilities that have accrued as at termination.
Clauses which expressly or by implication survive termination of the Contract shall continue in full force and effect.

death or personal injury caused by its negligence, or the negligence of its employees, agents or subcontractors (as applicable);
fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979;

The provisions of this clause shall not apply to the service of any proceedings or other documents in any legal action.
If any provision or part-provision of the Contract is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Contract.
If any provision or part-provision of this Contract is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the parties shall negotiate in good faith to amend such provision so that, as amended, it is legal, valid and enforceable, and, to the greatest extent possible, achieves the intended commercial result of the original provision.
Waiver. A waiver of any right or remedy under the Contract or law is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. 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.
Third party rights. A person who is not a party to the Contract shall not have any rights to enforce its terms.
Variation. Except as set out in these Conditions, no variation of the Contract, including the introduction of any additional terms and conditions, shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the Supplier.
Governing law. The Contract, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
