Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any goods you have paid for but not received.

you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 7.8, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.8 or clause 7.9, you can cancel your order for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value.

If so, this will have been stated in the description of the goods and services on our website, brochure or marketing materials. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 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 supplying the goods late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
Reasons we may suspend the supply of goods and services to you. We may have to suspend the supply of the goods or the services to:
deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
make any updates to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
make changes to the goods or services as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
Your rights if we suspend the supply of goods or services. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the goods or the services, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the goods or services we will adjust the price for any goods that have been suspended and accordingly for any services that cannot be supplied.. You may contact us to end the contract for goods or services if we suspend them, or tell you we are going to suspend them and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the goods or services in respect of the period after you end the contract.
We may also suspend supply of the goods and services if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the goods and services when you are supposed to (see clause 14.4) and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the goods and services until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the goods or services. We will not suspend the goods or services where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 14.7). We will not charge you for services during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the supply of goods and services, we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 14.6).
Your rights to end the contract
You can always end your contract with us. 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:
If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the goods repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 12 if you are a consumer and clause 13 if you are a business;
If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about the goods, see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you may have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
In all other cases (if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer exercising your right to change your mind), see clause 8.6.
Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at 8.2.1 to8.2.5 below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any goods and services which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
we have told you about an upcoming change to the goods or the services or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
we have told you about an error in the price or description of the goods or services you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
there is a risk that supply of the goods and services may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
we have suspended supply of the goods or services for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons; or
you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer then for most goods bought off premises or online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
When consumers do not have a right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
goods that are bespoke and have been made to your specification;
goods that are not available ‘off the shelf’ and have been ordered for you specifically, and the order has already been placed;
goods that have been unsealed or damaged after you receive them;
goods that have been installed, fitted or otherwise utilised after you receive them;
services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running; and
- 8.5.3 any goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
How long do consumers have to change their minds? If you are a consumer, how long you have to change your mind depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
Have you bought services (for example, installation and fitting services)? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
Have you bought goods (for example, flooring, carpets or tiles)? If so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery.
Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has a right to change their mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the goods are delivered. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has changed their mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for goods or services not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
How to end the contract with us (including if you are a consumer who has changed their mind)
Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
Phone or email. Call customer services on 07799 733836 or email us at email@example.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
Returning goods after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after goods have been dispatched to you or you have received them, and you do not wish to pay for the goods, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods in person to where you bought them, post them back to us at our registered address or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please call customer services on 07799 733836or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label or to arrange collection. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
if the goods are faulty or misdescribed; or
if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the goods or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
In all other circumstances (including where you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the goods from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection. The costs of collection will be the same as our charges for standard delivery, as set out in our brochure, marketing materials or website.
How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the goods including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
When we may make deduction from refunds if you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of the goods within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the goods delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
Where you have purchased a service from us, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind then:
For goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the goods back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the goods back to us. For information about how to return the goods to us, see clause 9.2.
In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
Our rights to end the contract
We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract at any time by writing to you if:
you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the goods and services;
you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the goods to you or collect them from us;
you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to your premises to supply the services; or
we are unable to work on your premises due to its condition
You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for goods we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.

We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on 07799 733836 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label or to arrange collection.
Your rights in respect of defective goods if you are a business
If you are a business customer we warrant that on delivery, and for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery (warranty period), any goods which are goods shall:
conform in all material respects with their description and any relevant specification;
be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship;
be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979); and
be fit for any purpose held out by us.
Subject to clause 13.3, if:
you give us notice in writing during the warranty period within a reasonable time of discovery that the goods do not comply with the warranty set out in clause 13.1;
we are given a reasonable opportunity of examining such goods; and
you return such goods to us at our cost,
we shall, at our option, repair or replace the defective goods, or refund the price of the defective goods in full.
We will not be liable for the goods’ failure to comply with the warranty in clause 13.1 if:
you make any further use of such goods after giving a notice in accordance with clause 13.2.1;
the defect arises because you failed to follow our oral or written instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the goods or (if there are none) good trade practice;
the defect arises as a result of us following any drawing, design or specification supplied by the Customer;
you alter or repair the goods without our written consent; or
the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions.
Except as provided in this clause 13, we shall have no liability to you in respect of the goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 13.1, notwithstanding any extended warranty given by the manufacturer of the goods.
These terms shall apply to any repaired or replacement goods supplied by us under clause 13.2.
Price and payment
Where to find the price for the goods and services. The price of the goods and services (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the brochure, marketing materials, website , our most recent price list, as provided to you, or on your order form. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the goods advised to you is correct. However please see clause 14.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the goods you order.
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 goods, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods and services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the 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 end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with PayPal, all major credit and debit cards and bank transfer. When you must pay depends on what goods you are buying:
For goods, you must pay for the goods before we dispatch them. If you are buying our goods online, you must pay for them when you place your order.
For services, you must make an advance payment, which shall be agreed between us, of the price of the services, before we start providing them. We will invoice you for the balance of the price of the services when we have completed them. You must pay each invoice within 14 calendar days after the date of the invoice.
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).
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 4% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England 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.
What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you if you are a consumer
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.
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 goods as summarised at clause 12.1; and for defective goods under the Consumer Protection Act 1987
When we are liable for damage to your property. Subject to clause 15.5 and 15.6, If we are providing services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services.
We are not liable for business losses. If you are a consumer we only supply the goods for to you for domestic and private use. If you use the goods for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose our liability to you will be limited as set out in clause 16.
We are not liable for any installation, fitting or other services provided by a third party . Where a third party has provided the services to you, we shall not be liable for any damage caused by that third party. Any services provided by a third party shall be provided in accordance with that party’s terms and conditions.
We are not liable where a waiver has been signed. If we have identified an issue with the installation or fitting of the goods but you wish to go ahead anyway, you will be required to sign a waiver and a satisfaction note which shall exclude our liability for any issues we identified prior to the works being carried out.
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you if you are a business
Nothing in these terms shall limit or exclude our liability for:
death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors (as applicable);
fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or section 2 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982; or
defective goods under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
Except to the extent expressly stated in clause 13.1 all terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and sections 3 to 5 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 are excluded.
Subject to clause 16.1:
we shall not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any loss of profit, or any indirect or consequential loss arising under or in connection with any contract between us;
the exclusions in clause 15.5 and 15.6 shall apply to business customers; and
- our total liability to you for all other losses arising under or in connection with any contract between us, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall be limited to the total sums paid by you for goods and services under such contract.
How we may use your personal information
Other important terms
We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this and will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
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.
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.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
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 you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the goods, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a consumer.
