The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within 7 working days, beginning on the day after you received the Goods and you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Goods in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 9 below). This right of cancellation does not apply to any Goods which are personalised, customised, made to your specification or manufactured to a visual proof which has been approved by yourself or somebody in your organization.
5.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing and you must return the Goods to us immediately thereafter, at your own cost and risk.

If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.

6.1 All Goods are offered by us subject to their current availability and we reserve the right to cancel any order placed by you if we have insufficient stock to deliver the Goods that you have ordered.
6.2 Due to our policy of continuous product development, we reserve the right to change any product specifications without prior notice and without liability to you.

6.8 Any attempted delivery which is refused at the delivery address will be returned to our warehouse. In this case a re-delivery charge will be applied to your order. The amount of the re-delivery charge depends on the carrier used to effect re-delivery.
6.9 All Goods must be inspected immediately while the delivery driver is still present. If found to be damaged in any way, the Goods must be refused, otherwise claims for any damages cannot be entertained. Please write "Refused due to damage" on the consignment note and hand the Goods back to the driver.
6.10 Without prejudice to the provisions of clause 6.9, if we, acting reasonably, are satisfied that the deficiency in the Goods would not have been reasonably apparent to you upon delivery of the Goods to you, or that the deficiency in the Goods only manifested itself following delivery of the Goods to you, then the provisions of Condition 9.1 (b) (ii) will apply.
6.11 In the event that you are in breach of the Contract, we reserve the right to refuse to supply you with any additional Goods, or to suspend the delivery of any Goods, without limiting any other remedy available to us.
