In the event that the Buyer's order seeks to make the sale subject to terms different from these conditions, acceptance is effected by a formal order acknowledgement and shall be deemed to be a fresh offer by the Company on the basis of these Conditions, in which event (unless these conditions are accepted by the Buyer prior to delivery) acceptance of delivery of the Goods by the Buyer shall constitute acceptance of the Company's offer, and the contract of sale shall be formed at that moment. No conditions or terms stipulated in any other communication or document shall vary or annul any of these conditions except insofar as the conditions are expressly consented to in writing by the Company.
1.3 Any typographical, clerical or other error or omission in any sales literature, quotation, price list, acceptance of offer, invoice or other document or information issued by the Company shall be subject to correction without any liability on the part of the Company.

If the Company discovers an error in the price of goods the Buyer has ordered, the Company will inform the Buyer as soon as possible and give the Buyer the option of reconfirming the order at the correct price or cancelling it. If the Company is unable to contact the Buyer, the order will be treated as cancelled and if the Buyer has already paid for the Goods the Buyer will receive a full refund.
3.1 The provision or display of pricing and other information relating to the goods by the Company to the Buyer does not amount to an offer by the Company to sell the Goods at that price or on any other terms.

3.2 Unless otherwise specified prices payable for the Goods are exclusive of delivery charges, insurance costs, packaging costs or other special handling charges.
3.3 All orders received by the Company are subject to delivery charge for each customer order received. Unless otherwise stated the Company shall enter into a contract for delivery of the order to the address of the Buyer.

3.5 All prices are exclusive of VAT and similar taxes. All such taxes will be levied on you at the time of invoice.
3.6 Where Goods are being price supported in any way, the final invoice price can only be confirmed once all conditions attached to that support have been met.

The Buyer must be able to confirm that all conditions have been met, including confirming the end-user sale by providing, when requested by the Company, the end-user invoice, the end-user purchase order or any other relevant supporting documentation requested. The Buyer agrees that the manufacturer or the Company may audit the Buyers compliance with these conditions. Should a manufacturer not honour a price support for whatever reason, the Company will not for any reason whatsoever be liable and will re-invoice the unsupported amount to the Buyer which will become immediately due. For any further clarification required please refer to the relevant brand manager.

Without limiting its rights under this condition in any way, the Company reserves the right to charge the buyer a cancellation/restocking fee of 25% of the price of the goods or services should the buyer cancel the order without prior agreement of the Company.
5.1 Unless otherwise specified the price quoted is packed ex-our warehouse. An extra amount will be levied to cover delivery and insurance costs.

5.5 The Company may deliver your order in instalments; each instalment will be treated as a separate delivery.
In the event of the Buyer purchasing the Goods by description the provisions of Section 13 of the Sale of Goods Act, 1893 (which implies the term that the Goods shall correspond with their description) shall not apply to the contract between the Company and the Buyer.
The Company makes and gives no warranty condition or representation in regard to the Goods save as herein expressly stated and it shall not be a condition of the contract of sale that the Goods supplied hereunder are fit for the purpose for which the Buyer wants them, whether or not this purpose has been made known to the Company and/or are of merchantable quality. The Buyer accepts that prior to agreeing to purchase the Goods hereunder he has satisfied himself as to their fitness for his purpose and as to their merchantable quality in regard to the use for which he requires them and has not relied upon the Company’s skill, judgment or representations, if any, before so satisfying himself.
