2. Basis of contract
2.1 These Conditions apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms that the Customer 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 Customer to purchase the Goods in accordance with these Conditions. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the terms of the Order and any applicable Specification are complete and accurate.
2.3 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.
2.4 In the event of any conflict between the terms of the Order and these Conditions, the terms of the Order shall prevail.
2.5 The Customer waives any right it might otherwise have to rely on any term endorsed upon, delivered with or contained in any documents of the Customer that is inconsistent with these Conditions.
2.6 Any drawings, descriptive matter or advertising produced by the Supplier and any descriptions or illustrations on the Supplier’s website and/or contained in the Supplier’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 A Quotation shall not constitute an offer and shall only be valid for a period of 30 days from its date of issue.
3.1 The Goods are described in the Specification.
3.2 The Supplier reserves the right to amend the Specification if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.
4.1 The Supplier shall ensure that:
(a) each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note that shows the Order confirmation number, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable), special storage instructions (if any) and, if the Goods are being delivered by instalments, the outstanding balance of Goods remaining to be delivered; and
(b) if the Supplier requires the Customer to return any packaging materials to the Supplier, that fact is clearly stated on the delivery note. The Customer shall make any such packaging materials available for collection at such times as the Supplier shall reasonably request. Returns of packaging materials shall be at the Supplier’s expense.
4.2 Subject to the relevant payment term, the Supplier shall deliver the Goods to the Delivery Location. Delivery shall be CIP Delivery Location Incoterms ® 2020.
4.3 Delivery is completed on the completion of unloading of the Goods at the Delivery Location.
4.4 Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence. The Supplier shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods that is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Customer’s failure to provide the Supplier with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
4.5 If the Supplier fails to deliver the Goods, its liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Customer in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods. The Supplier 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 Customer’s failure to provide the Supplier with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
4.6 If the Customer fails to accept delivery of the Goods within two Business Days of the Supplier notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready, then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Supplier’s failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract:
(a) delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00 am on the second Business Day after the day on which the Supplier first tried to make delivery; and
(b) the Supplier shall store the Goods until delivery takes place and shall charge the Customer for all related costs and expenses (including insurance).
4.7 If ten Business Days after the day on which the Supplier first tried to make delivery, the Customer has still not accepted actual delivery of them, the Supplier may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling costs, account to the Customer for any excess over the price of the Goods or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price of the Goods.
4.8 The Supplier 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 Customer to cancel any other instalment.
5.1 Unless stated otherwise in the Specification, the Supplier warrants that on delivery, and for the Warranty Period, the Goods shall:
(a) conform with the Specification;
(b) be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship; and
(c) be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979).
5.2 The Goods shall be deemed to be free from any Defects at the point of delivery if the Customer fails to notify the Supplier of any such Defects within 48 hours of delivery. Accordingly, the responsibility to inspect the Goods for Defects upon Delivery lies solely with the Customer.
5.3 Subject to clause 5.4, if:
(a) the Customer gives notice in writing to the Supplier either: (a) in respect of a Defect existing upon Delivery, within 48 hours of Delivery; or (b) in respect of a Defect which otherwise arises during the Warranty Period, within a reasonable time of discovery of that Defect;
(b) the Supplier is given a reasonable opportunity of examining such Goods; and
(c) the Customer (if asked to do so by the Supplier) returns such Goods to the Supplier’s place of business at the Customer’s cost,
the Supplier shall, at its option, repair or replace the defective Goods, or refund the price of the defective Goods in full.
5.4 The Supplier shall not be liable for any Defects in any of the following events:
(a) the Customer makes any further use of such Goods after giving notice in accordance with clause 5.3;
(b) the Defect arises because the Customer failed to follow the Supplier’s oral or written instructions as to the storage, commissioning, installation, use and maintenance of the Goods or (if there are none) good trade practice regarding the same;
(c) the Customer alters or repairs such Goods without the written consent of the Supplier;
(d) the Defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or
(e) the Goods differ from the Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.
5.5 Except as provided in this clause 6, the Supplier shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of any Defects.
5.6 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.
5.7 These Conditions shall apply to any repaired or replacement Goods supplied by the Supplier.
6. Title and risk
6.1 The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on completion of delivery.
6.2 Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the Supplier receives payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the Goods.
6.3 Until title to the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall:
(a) store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as the Supplier’s property;
(b) not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;
(c) maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery;
(d) notify the Supplier immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 9.1(b) or clause 9.1(c); and
give the Supplier such information as the Supplier may reasonably require from time to time relating to:
(i) the Goods; and
(ii) the ongoing financial position of the Customer.
6.4 At any time before title to the Goods passes to the Customer, the Supplier may require the Customer to deliver up all Goods in its possession that 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.
7. Price and payment
7.1 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.
7.2 The price of the Goods:
(a) excludes amounts in respect of value added tax (VAT), which the Customer shall additionally be liable to pay to the Supplier at the prevailing rate, subject to the receipt of a valid VAT invoice; and
(b) excludes the costs and charges of packaging, insurance and transport of the Goods, which shall be invoiced to the Customer.
7.3 The Supplier may invoice the Customer for the Goods on or at any time after receipt of the Order.
7.4 The Customer shall pay each invoice submitted by the Supplier:
(a) in accordance with the payment terms set out on the Quotation, and if no payment terms are set out therein, within 30 days of the date of the invoice; and
(b) in full and in cleared funds to a bank account nominated in writing by the Supplier, and time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.
7.5 If the Customer fails to make a payment due to the Supplier under the Contract by the due date, then, without limiting the Supplier’s remedies under clause 9 (Termination), the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment. Interest under this clause 7.5 will accrue each day at 4% a year above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time, but at 4% a year for any period when that base rate is below 0%.
7.6 All amounts due under the Contract shall be paid in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

(c) breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979; or
(d) defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
8.3 Subject to clause 8.2, the Supplier’s total liability to the Customer shall not exceed an amount equal to the price of the Goods actually received by the Supplier.
8.4 Subject to clause 8.2, the following types of loss are wholly excluded: loss of profits; loss of sales or business; loss of agreements or contracts; loss of anticipated savings; loss of use or corruption of software, data or information; loss of or damage to goodwill; and indirect or consequential loss.
8.5 This clause 8 shall survive termination of the Contract.
9.1 Without limiting its other rights or remedies, either party may terminate this Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice to the other party if:
(a) the other party commits a material breach of any term of the Contract and (if such a breach is remediable) fails to remedy that breach within 14 days of that party being notified in writing to do so;
(b) the other party takes any step or action in connection with its entering administration, provisional liquidation or any composition or arrangement with its creditors (other than in relation to a solvent restructuring), obtaining a moratorium, being wound up (whether voluntarily or by order of the court, unless for the purpose of a solvent restructuring), having a receiver appointed to any of its assets or ceasing to carry on business or, if the step or action is taken in another jurisdiction, in connection with any analogous procedure in the relevant jurisdiction; or

9.6 Any provision of the Contract that expressly or by implication is intended to come into or continue in force on or after termination of the Contract shall remain in full force and effect.
10. Force majeure
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 result from a Force Majeure Event.

If the period of delay or non-performance continues for 8 weeks, the party not affected may terminate the Contract by giving 14 days’ written notice to the affected party.
