(d) The headings in these Conditions are for convenience only and shall not affect their interpretation.

(e) The Company shall sell and the Buyer shall purchase the Goods in accordance with any written quotation of the Company which is accepted by the Buyer, or any written order of the Buyer which is accepted by the Company, subject in either case to these conditions, which shall govern the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions subject to which any such quotation is accepted or purported to be accepted, or any such order is made or purported to be made, by the Buyer.

2.           Accounts.

Prospective Buyers wishing to open a credit account should apply on a "Credit Account Application Form" (available from the Company on request), acknowledging these Terms & Conditions, copies of which are available from the Company. Until the opening of an account has been confirmed by the Company in writing, goods will only be supplied on a payment with order basis, otherwise delivery will not be made until the opening of a credit account has been approved which will be operated separate to our website (www.mrohms.com) and on a local basis only.

All prices are made at current prices, but are subject to alteration without notice. Goods will be charged at prices (and, where applicable, discounts) ruling at the date of despatch. Any price or discount quoted will be applicable only to quantity or quantities specified on the Buyer's enquiry and change in quantity may require an alteration in the price(s) and/or discount(s) (if any) offered in the Company's quotation.

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. Owing to alterations in design, the Company cannot guarantee that all Goods supplied will be in exact accordance with illustrations provided in any sales literature or other document or information issued by the Company, such illustrations being inserted only as a general indication of appearance.

4.            Orders & Specifications.

The Company's employees or agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless confirmed by the Company in writing. In entering into the contract, the Buyer acknowledges that it does not rely on any such representations which are not so confirmed.

The Buyer shall be responsible to the Company for ensuring the accuracy of the terms of any order (including any applicable specification) submitted by the Buyer, and for giving the Company any necessary information relating to the Goods within a sufficient time to enable the Company 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 Company's quotation (if accepted by the Buyer) or the Buyer's order (if accepted by the Company).

The Company 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 Company's specification, which do not materially affect their quality or performance.

No order which has been accepted by the Company may be cancelled by the Buyer, except with the agreement in writing of the Company, and on terms that the Buyer shall indemnify the Company 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 Company as a result of cancellation.

For materials which do not comprise the Company's normal stock orders are accepted on the understanding that once the order has been accepted by the manufacturer, it cannot be cancelled except by agreement with and on the terms and conditions laid down by the manufacturer.

5.            Prices.

The prices shown on the companies website are current at the time of preparation exclusive of any applicable value added tax, but it must be clearly understood that they are subject to alteration without notice, and goods will be invoiced at prices ruling at the date of despatch.

Whilst every care is taken in compiling catalogues, and quotations, the Company cannot accept responsibility for accidental errors and omissions.

6.            Payment.

Subject to any special terms agreed in writing between the Buyer and the Company and/or any provision to the contrary in these Terms & Conditions of Sale, the Company shall be entitled to invoice the Buyer for the price of the Goods on agreement of sale under our general terms & conditions. 

Goods are offered to you on a payment with order basis.  Your payment will be authorised by either CardSave Merchant Services or PayPal prior to despatch.  We accept most major credit/debit cards subject to those being accepted by CardSave Merchant Services.  At the time if writing these are; PayPal, VISA, VISA Debit, VISA Electron, MasterCard, Solo and Maestro.

 

7.            Delivery.

Delivery will be made to the Buyer's premises as stated by the Buyer when an order is submitted, or if notified by the Buyer Goods shall be left available for collection and this shall constitute delivery. Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only and the Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods however caused, for example, due to delays in manufacturers' deliveries to the Company. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the Contract, unless previously agreed by the Company in writing. If the Goods are not delivered within 5 days of the quoted delivery date, the Buyer should notify the Company, so that the Company may in its discretion, assist in investigating the delay. The Goods may be delivered by the Company in advance of the quoted delivery date. The Company reserves the right to deliver all or any of the Goods in advance of the agreed delivery date.

All Goods are Checked and packed carefully to ensure safe Delivery. The Company is not responsible for loss or damage in transit. Please see section 10 on Checking Goods for damage.

Any delivery times quoted are advisory only, and may be subject to alteration dependent upon Manufacturers' deliveries to the Company.

If the Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Company adequate delivery instructions prior to the time stated for delivery (other than by reason of any cause beyond the Buyer's reasonable control or by reason of the Company's fault) then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Company, the Company may store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Buyer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage or sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to the Buyer for the excess over the price under the Contract or charge the Buyer for any shortfall below the price under the Contract.

No charge is normally made for delivery from the Company's warehouses within van delivery areas (details of which are available from the Company on request), but the Company reserves the right to charge carriage, packing and insurance where appropriate in respect of deliveries outside delivery areas, whether by the Company's transport or other carrier (which delivery areas are available from the Company on request). Where goods are specially ordered from a Manufacturer for delivery to the Company's warehouse or direct to the Buyer's premises and a carriage charge is made by the manufacturer, the Company reserves the right to pass on this charge to the Buyer. Where a delivery is required by the Buyer outside scheduled delivery times or areas and a special delivery is made either by the Company's transport or by other carrier, the Company reserves the right to make a charge for such delivery. Where delivery is made by another carrier, the Company may, at its discretion, but shall not be obliged to, assist in investigating any loss or damage caused.

Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract, and failure by the Company to deliver any one or more instalment, in accordance with these Conditions, or any claim by the Buyer in respect of any one or more instalment, shall not entitle the Buyer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
