3. Basis of Sale and Sales Channels
3.1 The Seller’s employees or agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless confirmed by the Seller in writing. In entering into the Contract the Buyer acknowledges that it does not rely on, and waives any claim for breach of, any such representations which are not so confirmed.
3.2 No variation to these Terms and Conditions shall be binding unless agreed in writing between the authorised representatives of the Buyer and the Seller.
3.3 All prices shown on Our B2B Site and all sales literature, price lists and other documents issued by the Seller in relation to the Goods are subject to alteration without notice and do not constitute offers to sell the Goods which are capable of acceptance.
3.4 No part of Our B2B Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. The Buyer’s order via Our B2B Site constitutes a contractual offer which the Seller may, at its sole discretion, accept. The Seller’s acknowledgement of the Buy’s Order does not mean that the Seller has accepted it. The Seller’s acceptance of an order placed via Our B2B Site is indicated by the Seller sending the Buyer an “order confirmation” by email. No contract for the sale of the Goods shall be binding on the Seller unless the Seller has issued a quotation which is expressed to be an offer to sell the Goods or has accepted an order placed by the Buyer by whichever is the earlier of:
a) the Seller’s written acceptance;
b) delivery of the Goods; or
c) delivery of the Seller’s invoice.
Only once one of the above actions has been taken by the Seller will there be a legally binding Contract between the Buyer and the Seller.
3.5 Any typographical, clerical or other accidental errors or omissions on Our B2B Site or in any advertising materials or promotional literature, quotation, price list, acceptance of offer, invoice or other document or information issued by the Seller shall be subject to correction without any liability on the part of the Seller.
3.6 Subject to Conditions 3.7 and 3.8 and any other restrictions agreed in writing between the Buyer and the Seller, the Buyer may on-sell the Goods using any sales channels it wishes to exploit in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
3.7 The Buyer may not under any circumstances, unless specifically authorised to do so in writing by the Seller, on-sell the Goods via Fulfilment by Amazon or the Amazon Platform (whether with or without Amazon Prime status and whether the order is fulfilled by the Buyer or Amazon directly).
3.8 The Buyer shall not use any advertising materials or promotional literature without the Seller’s prior approval, and nor shall the it make any written statement as to the quality or manufacture of the Goods without the approval of the Seller.
3.9 The Buyer shall take all necessary steps to ensure that no person to whom it on-sells Goods shall do any of the things prohibited by Conditions 3.7 and 3.8 and a breach of any such Condition (whether by the Buyer or by a person to whom the Buyer has on-sold Goods) will be deemed a material breach of these Terms and Conditions for the purposes of Condition 13.2. The provisions of Conditions 3.7, 3.8 and 3.9 shall survive termination of the Contract.
4. Orders and Specifications
4.1 Our B2B Site will guide the Buyer through the ordering process if the Buyer chooses to place its order in such a way. Before the Buyer places an on-line order it will be given the opportunity to review its order (including its selection of the required size, model, colour and quantity) for Goods and should ensure it has been checked carefully before it is submitted. If during the order process the Buyer provides the Seller with incorrect or incomplete information, it should contact the Seller as soon as possible. If the Seller is unable to process the Buyer’s order due to incorrect or incomplete information, the Seller will contact the Buyer to ask for the information to be corrected or completed and if such action is not taken by the Buyer within a reasonable time of the Seller’s request, the Seller will cancel the Buyer’s order and treat the Contract as being terminated.

The Goods will only be supplied in the minimum units thereof stated on Our B2B Site or in the Seller’s price list or in multiples of those units. Orders received for quantities other than these will be adjusted accordingly.
4.4 Illustrations, photographs or descriptions whether on Our B2B Site or in catalogues, brochures, price lists or other documents issued by the Seller are intended as a guide only and shall not be binding on the Seller.
4.5 The Seller reserves the right to make any changes in the specification of the Goods which are required to conform with any applicable safety or other statutory or regulatory requirements or, where the Goods are to be supplied to the Buyer’s specification, which do not materially affect their quality or performance.

5.3 The Seller reserves the right, by giving written notice to the Buyer at any time before delivery, to increase the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost to the Seller which is due to any factor beyond the control of the Seller (including, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture), any change in delivery dates, quantities or specifications for the Goods which are requested by the Buyer, or any delay caused by any instructions of the Buyer or failure of the Buyer to give the Seller adequate information or instructions.
5.4 The Seller may allow the Buyer quantity discounts subject to and in accordance with the conditions set out in the Seller's published price list for the Goods current at the date of acceptance of the Buyer’s order.

5.6 The price is exclusive of any applicable value added tax, excise, sales taxes or levies of a similar nature which are imposed or charged by any competent fiscal authority in respect of the Goods, which the Buyer shall be additionally liable to pay to the Seller.
6.1 Subject to any special terms agreed in writing between the Buyer and the Seller, the Seller shall invoice the Buyer for the price of the Goods on or at any time after delivery of the Goods, unless the Buyer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods, in which event the Seller shall be entitled to invoice the Buyer for the price at any time after the Seller has tendered delivery of the Goods.
6.2 The Buyer shall pay the price of the Goods (less any discount or credit allowed by the Seller, but without any other deduction credit or set off) within 30 Business Days of the date of the Seller’s invoice or otherwise in accordance with such credit terms as may have been agreed in writing between the Buyer and the Seller in respect of the Contract. Payment shall be made on the due date notwithstanding that delivery may not have taken place and/or that the property in the Goods has not passed to the Buyer.

7.3 Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Seller to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Terms and Conditions or any claim by the Buyer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Buyer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
7.4 If the Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods or any part of them on the Delivery Date and/or fails to provide any instructions, documents, licences, consents or authorisations required to enable the Goods to be delivered on that date, the Seller shall be entitled upon giving written notice to the Buyer to store or arrange for the storage of the Goods and then notwithstanding the provisions of Condition 10.1 risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer, delivery shall be deemed to have taken place and the Buyer shall pay to the Seller all costs and expenses including storage and insurance charges arising from such failure.
