5.2. After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. This does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to purchase the Goods and (if applicable) Installation. All orders are subject to acceptance by us.
5.3. Our acceptance of your order will be confirmed to you by us by sending you an e-mail which confirms that the order has been accepted (the Order Acceptance). A contract between you and us for the purchase of the Goods and (if applicable) Installation set out in the Order Acceptance will only be formed when we send you the Order Acceptance (Contract).
5.4. For your information only, but without constituting any commitment on our part, we may also send you an email to confirm when the Goods have been dispatched, picked or packed.
5.5. The Contract will relate only to those Goods and (if applicable) Installation set out in the Order Acceptance. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods or Installation which may have been part of your order until the order of such Goods and associated Installation has been accepted in a separate Order Acceptance.
5.6. Each Order Acceptance shall constitute a separate Contract for the supply of the Goods and (if applicable) Installation set out in that Order Acceptance.
5.7. If we are unable to supply you with any particular Goods, for example because such Goods are not in stock, no longer available, or because of an error in the price on our site (as referred to in Condition 10), we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order in relation to those Goods. If you have already paid for the Goods which are not going to be processed and you have not accepted an alternative, we will refund you the purchase price of the relevant Goods as soon as possible. If we offer an alternative at a different value you may be asked to make an additional payment if higher, or if the alternative value is less that the payment you have already made we will refund the difference as soon as possible.
5.8. We reserve the right to make any changes in the specification of Goods which are required to conform to any applicable statutory requirements.

Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract under these regulations is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
7.2. Please note however that the cancellation right under Condition 7.1 does not apply where you have purchased any goods that weigh over 60kg as these require Installation and therefore your Contract can only be cancelled in accordance with Condition 7.4.
7.3. Subject to Condition 7.4 your legal right to cancel starts on the day we send you the Order Acceptance. You can cancel a Contract at any time from that day up to 7 working days (being any day on which the clearing banks in the City of London are open for business and therefore Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays in England are not included in this period) after the day you receive the Goods.
7.4. Your legal right to cancel a Contract for Goods weighing over 60kg and requiring Installation, starts on the day we send you the Order Acceptance and expires 7 working days (being any day on which the clearing banks in the City of London are open for business and therefore Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays in England are not included in this period) after this day. However, if you require and/or book a date for Installation before the expiry of the cancellation period set out in this Condition 7.4, you agree that we can start providing the services for Installation. In such circumstances, you will only be able to cancel the Contract up to the date for Installation and once we have commenced Installation, you will not be able to cancel the Contract pursuant to this Condition 7.4.
7.5. To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. Your cancellation notice is effective from the date you sent us the email.

8.4.1. we will, without limiting our other rights or remedies, have the right to suspend the Installation until you remedy the Customer Default, and we may rely on the Customer Default to relieve us from the performance of any of our obligations to the extent the Customer Default prevents or delays the performance of any of our obligations;

Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the United Kingdom.
- Price of Goods and Delivery Charges
10.1. The price of the Goods and/or any Installation will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Goods and/or Installation are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Condition 10.3 sets out what will happen if we discover an error in the price of the Goods and/or Installation you have ordered.
10.2. Subject to Condition 10.3, prices for our Goods and/or Installation may change from time to time, but any such changes will not affect any order you have placed with us and which we have confirmed with an Order Acceptance.
10.3. The price of the Goods and/or Installation includes delivery charges unless otherwise stated. Our prices state whether they are inclusive of VAT (“Incl.VAT”) or exclusive of VAT (“Excl.VAT”). VAT is charged (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the United Kingdom from time to time. If a price does not state whether VAT is included or excluded the price will be deemed to be inclusive of VAT.
10.4. Our site contains a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
10.4.1. where the Goods’ correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
10.4.2. if the Goods correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you by email as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
11.1. You can pay for Goods and/or Installation in £ sterling (United Kingdom) in the following ways:
11.1.1. via PayPal (Europe) Sarl et Cie SCA (PayPal); or
11.1.2. by using a debit or credit card via Sage Pay Europe Limited (“Sage Pay”) or such other online payments processor as we may use from time to time.
11.1 Payment for the Goods and/or Installation and all applicable delivery charges is in advance and you will be charged in accordance with the terms and conditions of Paypal, Sage Pay or our other online payments processor (as applicable) as well as these Terms and Conditions.

12.2 We only supply the Goods and/or Installation for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Goods and/or Installation for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
