No terms or conditions endorsed upon, delivered with or contained in any purchase order, confirmation of order, specification or other document will form part of the contract between us, including without limitation as a result of such document being referred to. These Terms conditions may only be varied by us in writing.
These terms apply to business customers only. If you are a consumer, then please contact us separately. Quotations do not constitute an offer and may be withdrawn or modified at any time. A binding agreement between us for the supply of the Goods will only arise when we confirm your order in writing. We reserve the right to refuse any order. If any Goods are not available then we will seek your agreement to either substitute an item or remove that item from your order. Goods are only supplied on a sale or return basis if we have agreed to this in writing and any returned Goods must in our sole discretion be re-sellable at full list price by us. This does not include any software or bespoke items, any orders which cannot be cancelled once accepted by us. Where we have supplied software (which we will procure as your agent) then your use of that software will be subject to the terms of the licence that accompany or apply to that software. If any Goods are supplied pursuant to another agreement between you and us then that agreement shall take precedence over these Terms. These Terms shall not confer any rights on any third parties and accordingly the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 shall not apply to these Terms.
