3. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1 How to place an order. Where you are placing an order on our website, our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take. Where you are placing an order via other contact with us (such as email, post or telephone), then you will need to follow the instructions set out in our brochure or our quotation to you (as applicable). In any case, please take the opportunity to check your order carefully before placing it.

3.3 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we send you a (further) email to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.4 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. If we have already taken any payment, we will return that to you as soon as reasonably possible.
3.5 Our requirements of you - consumers. You may only purchase products from us if you are at least 18 years old.

4. OUR PRODUCTS
4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website or in our brochures are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours or the printing process used for our brochures accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
4.2 Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
5. YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
6. OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
6.1 Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:
6.1.1 to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
6.1.2 to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a safety risk. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
6.2 Changes to these terms. We may amend these terms from time to time. Each time you place an order, we recommend that you review these terms carefully to ensure that you are happy with them.

7. PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS
7.1 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website, in our brochure or on our quotation, as applicable.
7.2 When we will provide the products. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you.
7.2.1 If the products are goods. If the products are goods we will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order, unless indicated otherwise in our order acceptance. In some cases, for example where goods are being personalised or are being sourced from overseas, we may indicate a longer time in our order acceptance email.
7.2.2 If the products are services. We will begin the services (including the hire of equipment) on the date agreed with you during the order process and set out in our order acceptance email.
7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay and you are a consumer then you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
7.4 Other delays not described in clause 7.3. If you are a consumer and we do not deliver goods to you and/or commence provision of services by the date agreed in accordance with clause 7.2, then you may cancel the order straight away if:
7.4.1 we have refused to deliver or perform (as applicable);
7.4.2 delivery/performance by the applicable date was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
7.4.3 you told us before placing the order that delivery/performance by the applicable date was essential.
If you choose not to (or are not entitled to) cancel the order in this manner, then you can give us a new deadline for delivery/performance (which must be reasonable in all the circumstances). If we do not meet this revised deadline (or a reasonable deadline if yours was unreasonable), then you can cancel the order at that stage.
7.5 If you are not at the delivery address when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, then at our discretion we will either leave the goods (or equipment hired out as a service) at the delivery address, or leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery. You are entirely responsible for any loss or damage occurring to such goods/equipment if we choose to leave it at your delivery address.
7.6 If you do not re-arrange delivery. After a failed attempt to deliver to you, we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery or related costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
7.7 When you become responsible for the goods. A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you [or a carrier organised by you] collect it from us.
7.8 When you own goods. You own a product which is goods only once we have received payment in full. For the avoidance of doubt, you will never own equipment or other items hired to you as part of our services.
7.9 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you, for example, event details to be engraved on a trophy. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.10 Artwork. Where goods are being personalised to your specification, we may provide artwork and/or samples prior to proceeding with your order. In relation to goods where artwork/samples are provided:
7.10.1 where you approve the artwork/sample, then you accept complete responsibility for the content, layout and appearance of the goods being acceptable to you;
7.10.2 any delay by you in approving the artwork/sample will impact on our delivery/performance date (or in the alternative, may mean an additional charge to you in order to meet the original delivery date);
7.10.3 we do not charge for artwork as standard. However, if we produce artwork for you, and you choose to use it with another provider rather than placing an order for goods with us, then we will apply a charge of £500 plus VAT in relation to this work.
7.11 Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
7.11.1 deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; or
7.11.2 update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
7.12 Your rights if we suspend the supply of products. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 4 weeks and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product not supplied after you end the contract.
7.13 We may also suspend supply of the products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 14).
7.14 Where our services comprise the hire of equipment/items. The following provisions will apply:
7.14.1 Any equipment or items hired to you (“Hired Items”) will remain our property at all times. You will not get any right, title or interest in the Hired Items.
7.14.2 The risk of loss, accident theft, damage (including without limitation fire damage) or destruction of the Hired Items (“Risk”) shall pass to you upon delivery of the Hired Items. The Risk shall remain with you from delivery until they are loaded onto our collection vehicle (“Risk Period”).
7.14.3 During the Risk Period, you shall:
22.214.171.124 at your own expense take out and maintain comprehensive insurance of the Hired Items for not less than £10,000 against all Risks, including any specific risks notified by us in writing;

8. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
8.1 You may be entitled to end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or business customer:
8.1.1 If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 12 if you are a consumer and clause 13 if you are a business;
8.1.2 If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2; and
8.1.3 If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3.
8.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at clauses 8.2.1 to 8.2.4 below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided (and you may also be entitled to compensation). The reasons are:
8.2.1 we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
8.2.2 if you are a consumer, and there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
8.2.3 we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 4 weeks; or
8.2.4 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
8.3 Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer then for most products you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail later in these terms.
8.4 When consumers do not have a right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
8.4.1 goods manufactured or modified to your specification (for example, medals or trophies with a date or event details engraved on them);
8.4.2 services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
8.4.3 products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them.
8.5 How long do consumers have to change their minds? If you are a consumer how long you have to change your mind depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
8.5.1 Have you bought services (for example, hire of electronic time-keeping equipment)? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
8.5.2 Have you bought goods (for example, medals or trophies)?, if so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days (in which case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods.
9. HOW TO END THE CONTRACT WITH US (INCLUDING IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER WHO HAS CHANGED THEIR MIND)
9.1 Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by contacting us by telephone, email or post. If contacting us by email or post, please provide your name, delivery address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
9.2 Returning products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods and/or Hired Items in person to us or allow us to collect them from you. Please contact customer services to arrange this. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
9.3 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
9.3.1 if the products are faulty or misdescribed; or
9.3.2 if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control (if you are a consumer) or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
In all other circumstances (including where you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
9.4 What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
9.5 How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
9.6 When we may make deduction from refunds if you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
9.6.1 We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
9.6.2 The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
9.6.3 Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
9.7 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as reasonably possible.
10. OUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
10.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
10.1.1 (if you are a business) you commit any material breach of the contract;
10.1.2 you do not make any payment to us when it is due;
10.1.3 you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products;
10.1.4 you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you; or
10.1.5 you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to your premises to supply the services (if applicable).
10.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
11. IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE PRODUCT
How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us.
12. YOUR RIGHTS IN RESPECT OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER
12.1 If you are a consumer we are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the products. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If your product is goods, for example medals or trophies, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
b) Up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
c) Up to the shorter of six years and the expected lifespan of the products: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
If your product is services, for example the hiring of time-keeping equipment, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:
a) You can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it's not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can't fix it.
12.2 Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must either return them to us or allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of return (where agreed with us in advance) or collection. Please contact us to arrange return or collection.
12.3 Your obligation to check products. You must check any goods and/or Hired Items within 48 hours of delivery for any visible damage or defects. If you seek to exercise the rights in this clause 12 later than 48 hours after delivery, we may require you to prove that the damage/defects were not caused by your handling after delivery.
13. YOUR RIGHTS IN RESPECT OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS
13.1 Many of our products which are goods come with a manufacturer’s guarantee. Where this applies, details will be included with the goods when they are delivered if this applies.
13.2 Subject to clause 13.1, if you are a business we warrant that on delivery, and for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery ("warranty period"), any products which are goods (excluding Hired Items) shall:
13.2.1 conform in all material respects with their description; and
13.2.2 be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship;
and any products which are services shall be performed with reasonable care and skill (together, “the warranty”).
13.3 Subject to clause 13.4, if:
13.3.1 you give us notice in writing during the warranty period within a reasonable time of discovery that a product does not comply with the warranty (and, for the avoidance of doubt, where a defect or warranty non-conformance would have been obvious on a visible inspection on delivery/performance, this clause 13.3.1 shall not have been complied with where you do not notify us within 48 hours of delivery/performance);
13.3.2 we are given a reasonable opportunity of examining such product; and
13.3.3 you return such product to us at your cost,
we shall, at our option, repair, replace or re-perform the defective product, or refund the price of the defective product in full.
13.4 We will not be liable for a product's failure to comply with the warranty if:
13.4.1 you make any further use of such product after giving notice;
13.4.2 the defect arises because you failed to follow our oral or written instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the product or (if there are none) good trade practice;
13.4.3 the defect arises as a result of us following any drawing, design or specification supplied by you;
13.4.4 you (or your agent) alter or repair the product without our express written consent; or
13.4.5 the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions.
13.5 Except as provided in this clause 13, we shall have no liability to you in respect of a product's failure to comply with the warranty.
13.6 These terms shall apply to any repaired, replacement or re-performed products supplied by us under this clause 13.
14. PRICE AND PAYMENT
14.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 14.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order. Any price which we provide you in our quotation is based on the dollar exchange rate at the time we issue the quotation. If there is a material change in the dollar exchange rate after we have placed the quotation and before you have placed your order, then we reserve the right to amend our quotation at any time.
14.2 VAT. The prices quoted on our website and in our brochures are exclusive of VAT, and any applicable VAT shall be added to those prices at the prevailing rate at the time of order. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
14.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
14.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with most major Credit or Debit cards (excluding American Express). Unless we agree otherwise with you during the order process, you must provide us with payment details at the time of placing the order, and we will take payment at any point prior to dispatching the products. If your payment details are not effective, we reserve the right to delay dispatch until you provide effective payment details.
14.5 Our right of set-off if you are a business customer. If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
14.6 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
15. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER
15.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
15.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987
15.3 We are not liable for business losses. If you are a consumer we only supply the products for to you for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose our liability to you will be limited as set out in clause 16.

16.1.3 breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or section 2 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982; or

16.3.1 we shall not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any (in each case whether arising under or in connection with any contract between us, and in each case except clause 18.104.22.168 whether direct or indirect):

This clause 17.4 shall not apply to the service of legal proceedings or other documents within any legal action.
17.5 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
17.6 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
17.7 This is our entire agreement if you are a business. These terms (and any documents referred to herein) constitute our entire agreement in relation to their subject matter, and supersede and extinguish any previous agreements. You acknowledge that you are not entering into this contract on the basis of any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether innocent or negligent) that is not set out in these terms.
17.8 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a consumer. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
17.9 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a business. If you are a business, any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a contract between us or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales and the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim.
