The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of your order does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.
Price & Payment
The price payable for the goods you order is as set out on our website at the time you place your order or as set out in your price book, plus any charges for delivery where applicable. We reserve the right to change the price of goods due to market conditions but we will confirm the prevailing price with you before accepting your order. We are not obliged to accept your order for such goods and may decline it or limit the order quantity. Occasionally an error may occur with our website and goods may be incorrectly priced. If this occurs, we will investigate and the correct price will be charged according to your account details.
Payment should be made according to the terms set out when your account was opened, and as stated on your invoice. Standard payment terms are 30 days from invoice. This is subject to change depending on the outcome of relevant credit checks and references. Pro-forma accounts will require full payment prior to despatch of your order.

Upon delivery of the goods to you, the goods shall be at your risk.
