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 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 and the Supplier shall not begin to manufacture or otherwise prepare the Goods until the Customer returns an executed copy of the Specification to the Supplier, confirming that it has checked and approves the Specification.
2.3 The Goods supplied are both bar length and made to measure. The Supplier shall supply / manufacture the Goods according to the measurements provided by the Customer. The Supplier cannot accept return of the Goods or any claim for a refund if the reason for the return is because the Customer provided the Supplier with incorrect measurements. The Customer is therefore fully responsible for ensuring that material quantities and or dimensions are taken in the correct manner (and in accordance with any directions provided by the Supplier) and that they are correct and accurate.
2.4 The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when the Supplier issues a written acceptance of the Order (“Order Confirmation“), at which point the Contract shall come into existence.
2.5 Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter, or advertising produced by the Supplier and any descriptions or illustrations contained in the Supplier’s catalogues, brochures and/or its website are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force.
2.6 A quotation for the Goods given by the Supplier shall not constitute an offer. A quotation shall only be valid for a period of 28 Business Days from its date of issue.
3.1 The Goods are described in the Specification.
3.2 The Customer shall indemnify the Supplier against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal and other reasonable professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by the Supplier in connection with any claim made against the Supplier for actual or alleged infringement of a third party’s intellectual property rights arising out of or in connection with the Supplier’s use of the Specification. This clause 3.2 shall survive termination of the Contract.
3.3 The Supplier reserves the right to amend the Specification without giving notice 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 which shows the date of the delivery, all relevant Customer and Supplier reference numbers, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable), special storage instructions (if any) and, if the Order is being delivered by instalments, the outstanding balance of Goods remaining to be delivered;
(b) The Customer must inspect on delivery to ensure the Goods delivered match those on the delivery note; and
(c) 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 The Supplier shall deliver the Goods to the location set out in the Order (or such other location as the Supplier may agree in writing (“Delivery Location“) at any time after the Supplier notifies the Customer that the Goods are ready. The Customer shall not be permitted to alter the Delivery Location on less than 48 hours’ notice.
4.3 Delivery of the Goods shall be completed on the Goods’ arrival at the Delivery Location prior to the unloading of the Goods at the Delivery Location.
4.4 The Customer shall be responsible for unloading the Goods at the Delivery Location and shall ensure that the necessary personnel, equipment and materials are available for such purpose upon the Goods’ arrival at the Delivery Location. The Supplier shall not be liable for any damage to the Goods or property during the unloading of the Goods.
4.5 Following the inspection at 4.1(b) the Customer shall have 48 hours to notify the Supplier in writing of any issues and shall be deemed to have accepted the Goods following the expiry of that period or, in the case of a latent defect in the Goods 48 hours following the latent defect becoming apparent.
4.6 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
4.7 If the Supplier fails to deliver the Goods on the agreed date, its liability shall be limited to ensuring the goods are delivered at the earliest opportunity. The Supplier accepts no liability for consequential loss arising from a late or failed delivery.
4.8 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 including but not limited to a failure to provide accurate measurements.
4.9 It is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure that the Supplier can deliver to the Site in the Supplier’s choice of vehicle. Most deliveries are made by HGV and therefore it is the Customers responsibility to ensure access can be gained by the HGV. Failure to reach a Site delivery address will result in a failed delivery which will result in a delivery being made away from the address provided. In this instance, it is the Customers responsibility to offload the vehicle and this will be classed as the delivery location.
4.10 If the Customer fails to agree to take delivery of the Goods within five 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 fifth Business Day after the day on which the Supplier notified the Customer that the Goods were ready; and
(b) the Supplier shall store the Goods until delivery takes place, and charge the Customer for all related costs and expenses (including insurance).
4.11 If 10 Business Days after the day on which the Supplier notified the Customer that the Goods were ready for delivery the Customer has not taken delivery of them, the Supplier can charge in full for the Goods
4.12 The Supplier may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.
5.1 The Supplier warrants that on delivery, and for a period of 10 years from the date of delivery (“Warranty Period“), the Goods shall:
(a) conform in all material respects with the Specification;
(b) be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship; and
(c) be fit for any purpose expressly held out by the Supplier.

(a) the Customer gives notice in writing to the Supplier during the Warranty Period within a reasonable time of discovery that some or all of the Goods do not comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1;
(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, replace the defective Goods, or refund the price of the defective Goods in full if repair or replacement is not available. This excludes consequential loss.
5.3 The Supplier shall not be liable for Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1 in any of the following events:
(a) the Customer makes any further use of such Goods after giving notice in accordance with clause 5.2;
(b) the defect arises because the Customer or any third party 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 defect arises as a result of the Supplier following any drawing, design, measurement or Specification supplied and/or approved by the Customer;
(d) the Customer alters or repairs such Goods without the written consent of the Supplier;
(e) the defect arises as a result of fair wear tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or
(f) the Goods differ from the Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.
5.4 Except as provided in this clause 5, the Supplier shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1.
5.5 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.
5.6 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 arrival of the Goods at the Delivery Location.

6.3 Until title to the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall:

As between the Customer and the Supplier, the Supplier shall remain fully liable for all acts or omissions of any third-party processor appointed by it pursuant to this Clause 11.
11.6 Either party may, at any time on not less than 30 days’ notice, revise this Clause 11 by replacing it with any applicable controller to processor standard clauses or similar terms forming part of an applicable certification scheme (which shall apply when replaced by attachment to the Contract).

The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between them, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.
(a) If any provision or part-provision of the Contract is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Contract.
(b) If any provision or part-provision of this Contract is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the parties shall negotiate in good faith to amend such provision so that, as amended, it is legal, valid and enforceable, and, to the greatest extent possible, achieves the intended commercial result of the original provision.
12.5 Waiver. A waiver of any right or remedy under the Contract or law is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.

Unless agreed otherwise, the Goods will be delivered without undue delay and in any case no later than 30 calendar days after the date on which the Contract is formed.

10.3.1 We informed You of any faults, damage or other problems with the Goods before Your purchase of them;
