3.2 The Customer shall pay each invoice submitted by the Company:

3.2.1 within 30 days of the date of the invoice;

3.2.2 in full and in cleared funds to a bank account nominated in writing by the Company; and

3.2.3 time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.

3.3 If the Customer is a consumer, and the Customer fails to make a payment due to the Company under the Contract by the due date, then, without limiting the Company’s remedy under clause 3.6, 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 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%.

4. DELIVERY

4.1 Delivery of the Goods shall be made by the Customer collecting or arranging collection of the Goods from the Company's premises at any time after the Company has notified the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection or, if some other place for delivery is agreed by the Company, by the Company delivering the Goods to that place.

4.2 Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only and the Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods howsoever caused.  Time for delivery shall not be of the essence.  The Goods may be delivered by the Company in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Customer.

4.3 Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Company to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with the Conditions or any claim by the Customer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Customer to treat the contract as a whole as repudiated.

4.4 If the Company fails to deliver the Goods (or any instalment) for any reason other than any cause beyond the Company’s reasonable control or the Customer’s fault, and the Company is accordingly liable to the Customer, the Company’s liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to the Customer (in the cheapest available market) of similar goods to replace those not delivered over the price of the Goods.

4.5 If the Customer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Company adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond the Customer’s reasonable control or by reason of the Company’s fault) then, without limiting any other right or remedy available to the Company, the Company may:

4.5.1 store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Customer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or

4.5.2 sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to the Customer for the excess over the price under the Contract or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price under the Contract.

 

5. PASSING OF RISK AND PROPERTY

5.1 Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods shall pass to the Customer:

5.1.1 in the case of Goods to be delivered at the Company's premises, at the time when the Company notifies the Customer that the Goods are available for collection; or

5.1.2 in the case of Goods to be delivered otherwise than at the Company's premises, at the time of delivery (being arrival but before unloading) or, if the Customer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods, the time when the Company has tendered delivery of the Goods.

5.2 Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, or any other provision of the Conditions, the property in the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the Company has received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the price of the Goods and all other goods agreed to be sold by the Company to the Customer for which payment is then due.

5.3 Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Customer, the Customer shall hold the Goods as the Company's fiduciary agent and bailee, and shall keep the Goods separate from those of the Customer and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and identified at the Company's property. Until that time the Customer shall be entitled to resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business, but shall account to the Company for the proceeds of sale or otherwise of the Goods, whether tangible or intangible, including insurance proceeds, and shall keep all such proceeds separate from any money or property of the Customer and third parties and, in the case of tangible proceeds, properly stored, protected and insured.

5.4 Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Customer (and provided the Goods are still in existence and have not been resold), the Company shall be entitled at any time to require the Customer to deliver up the Goods to the Company and, if the Customer fails to do so immediately, to enter upon any vehicles or premises of the Customer or any third party where the Goods are stored and repossess the Goods. CSF020-1 (Ref DP G002)

5.5 The Customer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods which remain the property of the Company, but if the Customer does so all moneys owing by the Customer to the Company shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Company) become due and payable immediately.

If delivery is not refused, and the Customer does not notify the Company accordingly, the Customer shall not be entitled to reject the Goods and the Company shall have no liability for such defect or failure, and the Customer shall be bound to pay the price as if the Goods had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.

7.2 Where any valid claim in respect of any of the Goods which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Goods or their failure to meet specification is notified to the Company in accordance with these Conditions, the Company shall be entitled to replace the Goods (or the part in question) free of charge or, at the Company's sole discretion, refund to the Customer the price of the Goods (or a proportionate part of the price), but the Company shall have no further liability to the Customer.

Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an event outside our control. See section 15 “Events outside our control” for our responsibilities when this happens.

5.4 Delivery is complete once the products have been unloaded at the address for delivery set out in your order and the products will be at your risk from that time.

5.5 You own the products once we have received payment in full, including of all applicable delivery charges. If you are a business customer, until you own the products, you must store the product separately from other goods and ensure that the product is clearly identifiable as belonging to us.

5.6 If we fail to deliver the products, our liability is limited to the cost of obtaining replacement goods of a similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the products. However, we will not be liable to the extent that any failure to deliver was caused by an event outside our control, or because you failed to provide adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of goods.

5.7 If you fail to take delivery within 14 days after the day on which we notified you that the products were ready for delivery, we may resell part of, or all the products and after deducting any reasonable storage and selling costs, account to you for any excess over the price of the products or charge you for any shortfall below the price of the products.

5.8 If you are a business customer and we deliver up to and including 5% more or less than the quantity of products ordered, you may not reject the delivery,  but on receipt of notice from you that the wrong quantity of products was delivered, we shall make a pro rata adjustment to the invoice for the products.

6. INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY

6.2 In limited circumstances, we may agree to deliver to addresses outside the UK in accordance with our Delivery Policy. However for delivery to addresses outside of the UK, please note that:

However, please see section 7.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the products you ordered.

7.2 Prices for our products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.

7.3 All amounts stated in these terms and conditions or on our website are  exclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

7.4 The price of the products includes delivery charges. Our delivery charges (if applicable) are advised to you during the check-out process before you confirm your order.

7.5 We sell many products through our website. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products on our website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:

7.5.1 where the products’ correct price is less than the price stated on our website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the products to you; and

7.5.2 if the products’ correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the products at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. However, if we mistakenly 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 cancel supply of the products and refund you any sums you have paid.

If you are a business, we will not be responsible for any loss you incur as a result of our suspension and you will reimburse us for any costs we incur as a result of your default.

13. IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER YOU HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT TO CHANGE YOUR MIND

23.3 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. We might not immediately chase you for not doing something (like paying) or for doing something you’re not allowed to, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do it later.
