Supplier against injury to persons or damage to property as a result of off loading the Goods.

delivery is caused by instructions or lack of instructions given by the Purchaser or by any industrial dispute or any other cause being beyond the reasonable control of the Supplier (notwithstanding condition 29). The Supplier shall not
have any liability in respect of deliveries made after the delivery date.
10.9 In no event shall time for delivery be of the essence of the Contract unless previously agreed by the Supplier in writing.
10.10 The Goods may be delivered by the Supplier in advance of the delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Purchaser.
10.11 Where delivery of the Goods is to be made by the Supplier in bulk, the Supplier reserves the right to deliver up to ten per cent more or ten per cent less than the quantity ordered without any adjustment in the price, and the
quantity so delivered shall be deemed to be the quantity ordered.
10.12 Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Supplier to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Conditions or any claim

charges, any increases in, or in the rates for, such charges arising after the date of the Contract and before the Goods are delivered or arising through deviation to a new port or airport necessarily or at the Purchaser’s request or
through any delay however caused shall be for the Purchaser’s account subject to the absolute discretion of the Supplier. Port surcharges and other incidental charges are not included in the freight rate will be for the Purchaser’s

12.3 Prices of the Goods and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which a Dispatch Confirmation has already been sent to the Purchaser.
12.4 The Supplier’s site contains a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite the Supplier’s best efforts, some of the Goods listed on the site may be incorrectly priced. The Supplier normally verify prices as part of
the dispatch procedures so that, where the Goodsâ€Ÿ correct price is less than the stated price, the Supplier will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to the Purchaser. If the Goodsâ€Ÿ correct price is higher than the
price stated on the site, the Supplier will normally, at the Supplier’s discretion, either contact the Purchaser for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject the order and notify the Purchaser of such rejection.
12.5 The Supplier is under no obligation to provide the Goods to the Purchaser at the incorrect (lower) price, event after a Dispatch Confirmation has been sent, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably
been recognised by the Purchaser as an error.

deliveries until such payment has been received in full together with any other amounts owing to the Supplier whether the due date for payment has been reached or not, if so requested by the Supplier or, at the Suppliers option, to
cancel the balance of the order. In either case the Supplier shall hold the Purchaser liable for costs incurred in respect of goods in course of manufacture or ready for dispatch.
13. REFUNDS POLICY FOR CONSUMERS
13.1 If the Purchaser returns the Goods to the Supplier:
13.1.1 because the Purchaser is contracting as a consumer and has cancelled the Contract within the seven-day cooling-off period, the Supplier shall process the refund due to the Purchaser as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30
days of the day the Purchaser gives notice of cancellation. In this case, the Supplier shall refund the price of the Goods in full, and any applicable delivery charges. However, the Purchaser shall be responsible for the costs of
returning the item to the Supplier; or

reasonable period of time. The Supplier will usually process the refund due to the Purchaser as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day the Supplier has confirmed to the Purchaser via email that he is entitled to a
refund. The Supplier will refund the price of defective Goods in full, any applicable delivery charges and any reasonable costs the Purchaser incurs in returning the item to the Supplier.

of twelve calendar months after the Goods have been delivered and which arise solely from faulty design (other than a design made, furnished or specified by the Purchaser for which the Supplier has disclaimed responsibility in writing),
materials or workmanship: provided always that defective parts have been returned to the Supplier if the Supplier shall have so required. The Supplier shall refund the reasonable land transport cost of carriage on such returned parts and
the repaired or new parts will be delivered by the Supplier free of charge as provided in Clause 8 (Delivery). The Supplier shall be under no liability in respect of any defect arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, handing
damage, damage sustained during installation or commissioning, negligence, abnormal working conditions, failure to follow the Supplier’s instructions (whether oral or in writing), accidents which the Goods cannot reasonably be expected

Goods without the Supplier’s written approval;
14.2 The Supplier’s liability under this clause shall be in lieu of any warranty or condition implied by law as to the quality or fitness for any particular purpose of the goods, and save as provided in this clause the Supplier shall not
be under any liability whether in contract, tort or otherwise, in respect of defects in goods delivered or for any injury (other than death or personal injury caused by the Supplier’s negligence as defined in Section 1 of the Unfair
Contract Terms Act 1977), damage or loss (including consequential loss and loss of profits), resulting from such defects or for any work done in connection therewith.

15.1 The Supplier will indemnify the Purchaser against any claim for infringement of Letters of Patent, Registered Design, Trade Mark or Copyright (published at the date of the contract) by the use or sale of any article or material
supplied by the Supplier to the Purchaser and against all costs and damages which the Purchaser may incur in any action for such infringement or for which the Purchaser may become liable. Provided always that this indemnity shall not
apply to any infringement which is due to the Supplier having followed a design or instruction furnished or given by the Purchaser or to the use of such article or material in a manner or for a purpose or in a foreign country not
specified by or disclosed to us, or to any infringement which is due to the use of such article or material in association or combination with any other article or material not supplied by us. And provided also that this indemnity is
conditional on the Purchaser giving to the Supplier the earliest possible notice in writing of any claim being made or action threatened or brought against the Purchaser and on the Purchaser permitting the Supplier at the Supplier’s own
expense to conduct any litigation that may ensue and all negotiations for a settlement of the claim. The Purchaser warrants that any design or instruction furnished or given by the Purchaser shall not be such as will cause the Supplier
to infringe any Letters of Patent, Registered Design, Trade Mark or Copyright in the execution of the Purchasers order and the Purchaser agrees to indemnify the Supplier against any claim arising from such breach of warranty by any third
party for infringement of letters of Patent, Registered Design, Trademark or Copyright by the use or sale of any article or material supplied by the
Purchaser to the Supplier and against all costs and damages which the Supplier may incur in any action for such infringement or for which the Supplier may become liable.

is the greater and;
16.1.2 the Supplier shall not be liable to the Purchaser for any loss of profit or of contracts or, save as aforesaid, for any loss or damage of any kind whatsoever and whether caused by the Supplier’s breach of contract, tort, breach of
