How a contract for the sale of products is formed
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the relevant products. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the products have been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until we confirm the dispatch of such products in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
If your order is conditional on all items being supplied, please specify this in the "additional comments" box at the point of purchase.
Orders for Goods
When you order products on this website, you confirm that you are purchasing the products in your basket and that you will pay for these products in full. If you have selected an offline order you confirm that it is your intention to purchase these products and that you will dispatch payment without delay. Once your order has entered our automated queue to be dispatched, it cannot be cancelled. We call this our 'Picking Queue' and will email you to notify you when your order reaches this stage. Please be aware that if you have not notified us that you wish to cancel your order before we send you this email, the delivery of your order can not be stopped and you will need to return the goods to us using your right to cancel (as set out below).
In stock - Item is in stock at our warehouse and depending on location/service selected at checkout, it will be delivered next working day (See delivery page for full details)
Available to Order - Stock is currently on or will be on order with the supplier, if we are aware of delivery dates this will be displayed below the status, we will also keep you informed by email and also when your item is being shiped out.
Product descriptions on this site can change at any time, for example when a product is updated by the manufacturer. Changes will not affect products for which you have already received a Dispatch Confirmation.
Before placing an order, please check that the description meets your needs.
Delivery of products
We will send the products to the address you state when placing the order.
We will deliver the products by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Once the products have been delivered, they are your responsibility and at your risk.
If the products are lost or damaged in transit, please let us know as soon as possible.
Your right to cancel (consumers only)
If you are contracting as a consumer (that is, not buying products for a business or organisation), the following right applies to you.
If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within 14 working days for unwanted items and 30 days for faulty/damaged items from new of receiving the product(s). We will send you applicable instructions within five days., beginning on the day after you received the products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out below).
To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org stating your order number and the fact that you wish to return your order, whereupon we will provide you with further instructions. You must then return the products to us immediately at your own cost.
You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of products that have been made to your own specifications, such as custom cut cable.
Details of this right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
Before returning products to us, you must keep them in your possession and must take reasonable care of them.
When you return products to us (for instance, because you are a consumer and have cancelled the Contract between us within 14 working days of receipt of the products, or because you claim that the products are defective), we will examine the returned products and will notify you of whether you are entitled to a refund. We will notify you by email and within a reasonable period of time. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible. In any case, we will process the refund within 30 days of the day we received your cancellation or the day we confirmed to you via email that you were entitled to a refund for delivery of the defective products.
Products returned by you because of a defect from new, will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
If you are a consumer and have used the right to cancel (set out above) to cancel the Contract between us within 14 working days of receiving the products, we will refund you in full, including the cost of sending the item to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
When you return a purchase any free gift supplied with the purchase must be returned.
All defective products are subject to testing prior to repair or exchange. If no fault is present then we reserve the right to charge a testing fee and to charge for return carriage.
We reserve the right to change prices of products without notice, but such changes will not affect orders for which we have issued a Dispatch Confirmation.
In the unlikely event that we have made a pricing mistake, we will advise you of this. You will not receive an email confirming acceptance of your order, and there will be no contract between us.
The prices stated on the website include VAT but do not include the cost of delivery, which is quoted for separately during the order process.
All offers are limited in supply and we reserve the right to withdraw these at any time. We cannot be held responsible if a special offer or any product is not available for supply after an order has been placed.
