12. Our rights to make changes
12.1 Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:
(a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and

13.2 When we will provide the products. We will deliver products you have ordered to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.

13.4 We are not responsible for delays outside our control.

Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by such events, but if there is a risk of substantial delay (for example, the delay extends beyond 30 days after we have accepted your order) you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
13.5 If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and products cannot be posted through your letterbox, our delivery partner will leave you a note informing you of where your products can be collected from or how to rearrange delivery.

If you do not collect the products from a delivery partner 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 2 will apply.
13.7 When you become responsible for the goods. You become responsible for products ordered from the time the products are delivered to the address you gave to us.
13.8 When you own products. You own a product once we have received payment in full.

We will need certain information from you so that we can supply products and/or services to you, for example, your name, your email address, your postal address etc. You are required to provide this information to us at the time of placing your order. If you do not give us this information at the time of placing your order (and continue to fail to do so after us after we have asked for it), or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for late supply or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need.
13.10 Reasons we may delay the supply of products and/or services to you. We may have to delay or suspend the supply of products and/or services to:
(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;

(c) make changes to the products and/or services as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 12.).
13.11 Your rights if we delay the supply of products or services. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be delaying supply of the products and/or services, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency.

14. Your rights to end the contract
14.1 Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or business customer. Further detail is set out below.

14.3 If you have bought goods from us you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive delivery of the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days in which case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the last delivery.
14.4 However, your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:

(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(c) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed (i.e. over 30 days from the date of acceptance of your order) because of events outside our control; or

(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind

(d) you alter or repair the product without our written consent; or
(e) the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions.

18.5 These terms shall apply to any repaired or replacement products supplied by us under clause 2.
19. Price and payment
19.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on our website at the time of you placing your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
19.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
19.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. 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 (unless it should have been obvious to you at the time of placing your order that the price of the product was incorrect). If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
19.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with VISA, Mastercard and American Express or, if we agree, through direct bank transfer. You must pay for the products and services you order at the time of placing your order.
19.5 Our right of set-off if you are a business customer. If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
20. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you if you are a consumer
20.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
20.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products.

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. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
