4. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
4.1 Your placing an order via the Website constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that contains a VAT invoice and confirmation of our acceptance of your order (the “Order Acceptance”). The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Order Acceptance, whether or not you receive such email.
4.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Order Acceptance. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Order Acceptance.
5. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
5.1 In normal circumstances
(a) We will deliver an order within the agreed period, but we cannot be held liable for any loss caused by late delivery. If we do deliver late you are not entitled to regard this as a breach of contract.
(b) Goods will be delivered to the delivery address supplied by you. You are considered to have given authority to accept a delivery on your behalf to any person who actually accepts delivery at the delivery address.
(c) If we, or any agent on our behalf, cannot deliver to the delivery address then we may, either store the goods and deliver at a later date or return the goods to stock and deliver similar goods later.
(d) You are obliged to provide adequate labour and facilities at the delivery or collection address to load or unload the goods without undue delay. We will require compensation for any loss we suffer arising from delivery or collection or non-delivery or non-collection of the goods. If it is not our fault nor that of our agent, that any delivery or collection is delayed or cannot be carried out then we will charge you for any extra costs incurred.
(e) If we deliver in instalments to you, then each instalment is a separate contract. If payment in full is not made to us at the proper time for orders, which have already been delivered, then we may withhold or cancel delivery of any other of your orders, which have not yet been delivered.
(f) Our prices exclude delivery or transport charges, insurance in transit and taxes. We will charge you extra for transport, packaging taxes and insurance as applicable.
