No variation to these Conditions shall be binding unless agreed in Writing between the authorised representatives of the Buyer and the Seller.
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 any such representations which are not so confirmed. Any advice or recommendation given by the Seller or its employees or agents to the Buyer or its employees or agents as to the hardware, software application or use of the Goods which is not confirmed in Writing by the Seller is followed or acted upon entirely at the Buyer´s own risk, and accordingly the Seller shall not be liable for any such advice or recommendation which is not so confirmed. 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 Seller shall be subject to correction without any liability on the part of the Seller.
No order submitted by the Buyer shall be deemed to be accepted by the Seller unless and until confirmed in Writing by the Seller´s authorised representative.
Goods are not supplied to the Buyer on a trial basis. It is the sole responsibility of the Buyer to verify the suitability and compatibility of equipment before purchasing the Goods.
The Buyer shall be responsible to the Seller for ensuring the accuracy of the terms of any order (including any applicable specification) submitted by the Buyer, and for giving the Seller any necessary information relating to the Goods within a sufficient time to enable the Seller to perform the Contract in accordance with its terms.
The quantity, quality and description of and any specification for the Goods shall be those set out in the Seller´s quotation (if accepted by the Buyer) or the Buyer´s order (if accepted by the Seller).
If any process is to be applied to the Goods by the Seller in accordance with a specification submitted by the Buyer, the Buyer shall indemnify the Seller against all loss, damages, costs and expenses awarded against or incurred by the Seller in connection with or paid or agreed to be paid by the Seller in settlement of any claim for infringement of any patent, copyright, design, trade mark or other industrial or intellectual property rights of any other person which results from the Seller´s use of the Buyer´s specification.
The Seller reserves the right to make any changes in the specification of the Goods which are required to conform with any applicable statutory or EC requirements or, where the Goods are to be supplied to the Seller´s specification, which do not materially affect their quality or performance.
No order which has been accepted by the Seller may be cancelled by the Buyer except with the agreement in Writing of the Seller and on terms that the Buyer shall indemnify the Seller in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs (including the cost of all labour and materials used), damages, charges and expenses incurred by the Seller as a result of cancellation.

All prices quoted are valid for 3 days only or until earlier acceptance by the Buyer, after which time they may be altered by the Seller without giving notice to the Buyer.
The Seller reserves the right, by giving 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 (such as, 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 is 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.
Except as otherwise stated under the terms of any quotation or in any price list of the Seller, and unless otherwise agreed in Writing between the Buyer and the Seller, all prices are given by the Seller on an ex works basis, and where the Seller agrees to deliver the Goods otherwise than at the Seller´s premises, the Buyer shall be liable to pay the Seller´s charges for transport, packaging and insurance.
Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods shall pass to the Buyer:
in the case of Goods to be delivered at the Seller´s premises, at the time when the Seller notifies the Buyer that the Goods are available for collection; or the case of Goods to be delivered otherwise than at the Seller´s premises, at the time of delivery or, if the Buyer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods, the time when the Seller has tendered delivery of the Goods.
Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, or any other provision of these Conditions, the property in the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the Seller has received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the price of the Goods and all other goods agreed to be sold by the Seller to the Buyer for which payment is then due.
Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Buyer, the Buyer shall hold the Goods as the Seller´s fiduciary agent and bailiff, and shall keep the Goods separate from those of the Buyer and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and identified as the Seller´s property, but shall be entitled to resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business.
Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Buyer (and provided the Goods are still in existence and have not been resold), the Seller shall be entitled at any time to require the Buyer to deliver up the Goods to the Seller and, if the Buyer fails to do so forthwith, to enter upon any premises of the Buyer or any third party where the Goods are stored and repossess the Goods.
The Buyer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods which remain the property of the Seller, but if the Buyer does so all monies owing by the Buyer to the Seller shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Seller) forthwith become due and payable.
Any damages or error in products must be reported within 48 hours of purchase/delivery.
Subject to the conditions set out below the Seller warrants that the Goods will correspond with their specification at the time of delivery and will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 12 months from date of invoice, except the products that carry the manufacturer warranty.
The above warranty is given by the Seller subject to the following conditions:
Subject as expressly provided in these Conditions, and except where the Goods are sold to a person dealing as a consumer (within the meaning of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977), all warranties, conditions or other terms implied by statute or common law are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Where the Goods are sold under a consumer transaction (as defined by the Consumer Transactions (Restrictions on Statements) Order 1976) the statutory rights of the Buyer are not affected by these Conditions.
Any claim by the Buyer which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Goods or their failure to correspond with specification shall (whether or not delivery is refused by the Buyer) be notified to the Seller within 48 hours from the date of purchase/delivery. If delivery is not refused, and the Buyer does not notify the Seller accordingly, the Buyer shall not be entitled to reject the Goods and the Seller shall have no liability for such defect or failure, and the Buyer shall be bound to pay the price as if the Goods had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.
Where any valid claim in respect of any of the Goods which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Goods or their failure to meet specification is notified to the Seller in accordance with these Conditions, the Seller shall be entitled to replace the Goods (or the part in question) with an alternative product of an equal or greater performance or, at the Seller´s sole discretion, refund to the Buyer the price of the Goods (or a proportionate part of the price), but the Seller shall have no further liability to the Buyer.
In cases where the equipment manufacturer offers on site warranty the Buyer will be responsible for contacting the manufacturer or its agent direct to obtain the services required. The Seller will not be held responsible for the failure of the manufacturer or its agents to carry out any necessary repairs. In such cases the equipment may be returned to the Seller in accordance with these Terms and Conditions for normal warranty repair work save that in the event that the Goods have to be returned from a venue other than within the United Kingdom the Buyer will be responsible for carriage/customs charges that may arise in respect of the return of the Goods.
Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by the Seller´s negligence, the Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer by reason of any representation (unless fraudulent), or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law, or under the express terms of the Contract, for any indirect, special or consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit or otherwise), costs, expenses or other claims for compensation whatsoever (whether caused by the negligence of the Seller, its employees or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the supply of the Goods or their use or resale by the Buyer, and the entire liability of the Seller under or in connection with the Contract shall not exceed the price of the Goods, except as expressly provided in these Conditions.
The Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer or be deemed to be in breach of the Contract by reason of any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of the Seller´s obligations in relation to the Goods, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond the Seller´s reasonable control. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the following shall be regarded as causes beyond the Seller´s reasonable control:
Act of God, explosion, flood, tempest, fire or accident; war or threat of war, sabotage, insurrection, civil disturbance or requisition; acts, restrictions, regulations, bye- laws, prohibitions or measures of any kind on the part of any governmental, parliamentary or local authority; strikes, lock-outs or other industrial actions or trade disputes (whether involving employees of the Seller or of a third party);difficulties in obtaining raw materials, labour, fuel, parts or machinery; power failure or breakdown in machinery.
