13. Price and payment
13.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see section 13.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
13.2 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.
13.3 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 in our catalogues and/or on our website. 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. 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. If we 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 your order, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.
13.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Mastercard, Maestro, Visa and Visa Debit. You must provide your credit or debit card details at the time of placing your order. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them.
13.5 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% a year above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
13.6 If your payment is declined by your credit card provider or your bank. Your credit card provider, your bank or our debt collection company (Transax or Certegy) may charge you a fee. The amount of that fee is beyond our control. Where we incur any fee as a result of a declined payment, you must reimburse you for the fee we incur.
13.7 What to do if you think a payment is wrong. If you think a payment is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue.
14. Multi-buy offers
14.1 How we apply multi-buy offers. From time to time, we may issue multi-buy offers, for example, ‘buy one get one free’ or ‘buy three products and get the lowest priced product for half-price’. Multi-buy offers cannot be used on permanently-reduced products, sale products or brand concession products. If you require a refund or replacement of products that were subject to a multi-buy offer, then all products (including those that you would otherwise want to keep) must be returned to us. The free or discounted product cannot be refunded on its own for money or credit.
14.2 What other terms apply to multi-buy offers. When we issue a multi-buy offer, we reserve the right to apply additional terms and conditions to the use of that offer which we will make clear to you at the time. We also reserve the right to withdraw or amend any offer at any time without giving you prior notice. There is no cash alternative available.
15. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
15.1 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 order process.
15.2 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 including the right to receive products which are: as described and match the information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us and supplied with reasonable skill and care and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
15.3 We are not liable for any other loss arising from unauthorised access to your account. It is your responsibility to keep your email address, account log-in details and password safe and secure. We shall be entitled to treat any orders that we receive using your account and your stored credit or debit card details as coming from you or being authorised by you, and we will process those orders in accordance with these terms. Unless we are responsible under section 15.1 or 15.2, we have no liability to you for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of any person gaining unauthorised access to your account and placing an order with us.
15.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
16. How we may use your personal information
17. How to make a complaint
17.1 How to contact us in the first instance. We want you to be pleased with any purchase you make from us, so if there’s something you’re not happy with please let us know as soon as possible by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try and resolve the problem for you.

18. Other important terms
18.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract. If you are unhappy with the transfer, you may contact us to cancel any outstanding orders within 30 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
18.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, you may transfer your rights under our ‘no-quibble 14-day returns policy’ at section 9.4 to a person who has acquired the product from you. We may require the person to whom your rights are transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant product.
18.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in section 18.2 in respect of our 'no-quibble 14-day returns policy'.
18.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the sections of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining sections will remain in full force and effect.
18.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. 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 we can demonstrate that you are buying products from us with the intention of reselling them and we accept your order, we can still take any of the action permitted by section 5 at a later date.
18.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
