Our acceptance of your Order will take place either: (i) when we email you to confirm delivery of your Order; or (ii) by providing you with the Products for purchases made; or (iii) in the case of bespoke Products, when we confirm acceptance of your Order (whether verbally or in writing), at which point a Contract will come into existence between you and us.

- RISK AND OWNERSHIP
11.1 Ownership of the Products will not pass to you until we have received in full (in cash or cleared funds) all sums due to us in respect of the Products and all other sums which are, or which become due to us from you on any account.
11.2 Until ownership of the Products has passed to you, you must:
(a) hold the Products on trust for us;
(b) store the Products (at your own cost) separately from all other goods owned by you or any third party so that they are identifiable as our property and clearly labelled as such;
(c) not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Products;
(d) maintain the Products in satisfactory condition insured on our behalf for their full Price against all risks;
(e) hold any proceeds of such insurance on trust for us separately from any other money, and not pay the proceeds into an overdrawn bank account or allow any such bank account to become overdrawn; and
(f) allow us access to any premises where the Products are held at any reasonable time to enable us to inspect the Products and verify that you have complied with your obligations under this Condition 9.3.
11.3 You may resell the Products before ownership has passed to you provided such sale is:
(a) in the ordinary course of your business at full market value and you will account to us accordingly; and
(b) on your own behalf and you deal as principal when making such sale.
11.4 If we cannot determine which goods are the Products, you will be deemed to have sold all Products sold by us to you in the order in which they were invoiced to you.
11.5 We will be entitled to recover payment for the Products notwithstanding that ownership of any Products has not passed from us.
11.6 In the event you fail to pay for the Products when due (and without prejudice to any other rights we may have under these Conditions) we may demand the immediate return of the Products at any time and you will forthwith comply with such demand and bear the expenses for such return.
11.7 If you fail to return the Products in accordance with Condition 9.7, you will be deemed to grant to us (or our successors in title for the Products) and our respective employees and agents an irrevocable licence to enter onto any premises where the Products are or may be situated for the purpose of removing the Products (the cost of doing so shall be borne by you) and to sell or otherwise deal with such Products.
12.1 You may cancel the Contract and return any unused Products for any reason and at any time within 30 days of the date you receive your Order, providing the goods are in “as new” condition. Returns outside of a 30 day period will receive a credit note.
12.2 There will be no right to cancel the Contract if you have ordered Products made or modified to your specification or once the Products have been manufactured, installed or become mixed inseparably with other items.
12.3 You can cancel the Contract by:
(a) Calling us on +44 (0)1159 876 700 or in writing at email@example.com. Please provide your name, address, details of the order, your phone number and email address.

12.4 If you cancel the Contract, you must return the Products (including all packaging and manuals) to us within 14 days of telling us you wish to cancel. You must either return the Products in person or by post to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We reserve the right to charge a handling fee/restocking fee if we receive the Products after the 14 day period.
12.5 We will only pay the costs of return if the Products are faulty or mis-described. In all other circumstances (including where you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
12.6 If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the Products from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
12.7 Refunds will be made as soon as possible and by the same method you used for payment. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind then your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the Products back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with satisfactory evidence that you have sent the Products back to us.
12.8 Products must be returned in a re-saleable condition. We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, 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 can inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

(c) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Products to you or collect them from us;

- FORCE MAJEURE
