Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue from the date that payment becomes due until the date of payment.

We reserve the right to charge costs and expenses incurred in recovering late payment, and to charge interest at the rate then in force pursuant to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 as at the due date.

If there is a dispute between the Buyer and us regarding the quality or a complaint lodged by the Buyer, such will not give the Buyer the right to suspend payment, in whole or in part.

All costs relating to collection of the amount owed by the Buyer and not paid in time, including all judicial and extrajudicial costs and costs for legal assistance, are at the expense of the Buyer.

The Buyer must pay the invoice in accordance with the agreed payment terms, without any deduction or set off, so that we are in receipt of cleared funds on the payment date.

If in the opinion of the Seller the credit-worthiness of the Buyer shall have deteriorated prior to delivery the Seller may require full or partial payment of the price prior to delivery or the provision of security for payment by the Buyer in a form acceptable to the Seller.

Pricing

We reserve the right, by giving written notice (via email or the postal system) to the Buyer at any time before delivery, to increase the price of the goods to reflect any increase in the cost to us, which is due to any factor beyond our control (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, changes in taxation and rates, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture, delivery charges), any change in delivery dates, quantities or specifications for the Goods which is requested by the Buyer, or any delay caused by any instructions of the Buyer or failure of the Buyer to give us adequate information or instructions.

Goods

If a sample of the Goods supplied but not manufactured by us was exhibited to and inspected by the Buyer, the Buyer agrees that such samples were so exhibited and inspected solely to enable the Buyer to judge for itself the quality of the Goods and not so as to constitute a sale by sample. If the buyer is caught selling these articles without permission they will be charged full price for said samples.

If orders are placed before 1200 we will endeavour to ship them same day for next day delivery. Any delivery dates or times are approximate only and we shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods however caused, unless we have expressly confirmed otherwise in writing.

If the Goods delivered by us are not on first appearance in conformity with any agreement, the Buyer is bound to notify us immediately upon delivery and to note the defects discovered on the (transport) document to be signed upon receipt. Complaints relating to defects which are not visible upon delivery must be made immediately after the Buyer has observed these defects or could reasonably have observed these defects, but at the latest 14 days after delivery.

All delivery discrepancies must be notified within 48 hours of delivery in writing If goods are damaged, please ensure you are able to provide a photograph.

Where the Goods are accompanied by instructions for use or a specified use by date, the Buyer is responsible for ensuring that the Goods in question are treated with the instructions for use and within the specified best before end date. We will endeavour not to send any items out with less than a three month shelf life.

If on the basis of an agreement we agree to provide (free of charge) the Buyer with a service or services in the form of advice, we shall meet this obligation using our reasonable endeavours. However, we are not bound to guarantee that a particular result will be obtained by following the advice and we do not give such guarantee and accept no liability for any advice given.

Duty of Care

The Buyer will always treat the Goods delivered with the requisite care and will not carry out any actions which could affect the quality and/or safety of the Goods, including the packing thereof, or which could affect the reputation of our brands.

Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or liability for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987, we shall not be liable to the Buyer by reason of any representation (unless fraudulent), or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law, or under the express terms of any agreement, for loss of profit or for any indirect, special or consequential loss or damage, costs, expenses or other claims for compensation whatever (whether caused by our negligence or that of our employees, agents or subcontractors or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the supply of the Goods (including any delay in supplying or any failure to supply the Goods in accordance with any agreement or at all) or their use or resale by the Buyer, and our entire liability under or in connection with any agreement shall be limited as stated in these terms and conditions.

Force Majeure

We shall not be liable to the Buyer or be deemed to be in breach of any agreement by reason of any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of our obligations in relation to the Goods, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond our reasonable control.
