Our registered address is: 89 Park Avenue Park Avenue, Ashbourne, England, DE6 1GB
Our company number is: 05052640
Our regulator is: NPORS
The Order is your offer to buy the Services from us on these Terms, and you must make sure that the Order (and any required standards or measurements or specification of the Services that form part of your Order) is correct.
When we send you a written acceptance, you have a binding contract with us, and these Terms are part of it.
The contract is our entire agreement. No previous statements or representations that we have made to you form part of the contract unless they are written into it. This includes samples, drawings, advertising, catalogues and other promotional or descriptive material.
If we have given you a quotation for the Services, it is only valid for 30 days from its issue date. It is not an offer to sell you the Services.
If either of us needs to give the other a notice under the contract ('Notice'), the Notice must be given properly to be effective.
We will ensure that the following information is given or made available to you prior to the formation of the Contract between us and you, unless such information is already apparent from the context of the transaction:
- The main characteristics of the Services,
- Our identity and contact details,
- The total Price for the Services including taxes or, if the nature of the Services is such that the Price cannot be calculated in advance, the manner in which it will be calculated,
- Where applicable, all additional delivery charges or, where such charges cannot be calculated in advance, the manner in which they will be calculated,
- Where applicable, the arrangements for payment, delivery and the time by which we undertake to deliver the Services,
- Our complaints handling policy,
- We shall ensure that you are aware of our legal duty to supply Services that are in conformity with the Contract,
- Where applicable, details of after-sales services and commercial guarantees,
- Where applicable, the functionality, including appropriate technical protection measures, of digital content; and
- Where applicable, any relevant compatibility of digital content with hardware and software that we are aware of or might reasonably be expected to be aware of.
If the Services have been developed at your request or to any specification that you have supplied, you will pay for all expenses, losses and costs that we suffer from any claim made against us for breach of someone else's intellectual property rights. This applies even after this contract has ended and includes the value of any damages which a court orders us to pay.
We are allowed to change any of our specifications, or any specification that you have supplied, if this is necessary to comply with any regulations.
We are allowed to transfer our rights and responsibilities under this contract to someone else, for example by assignment, a legal charge or sub-contracting our rights and obligations under this contract, but you may not do any of these things unless we have previously agreed in writing that you can.
Nobody other than we and you may rely on any terms of this contract.
Changes to the contract are only binding if we agree them in writing, sign them and give you a copy.
If either of us wishes to give a notice to the other under the contract, we must give it in writing and either deliver it or send it by first class post to the other's registered office (or another address specifically given to the sender for this purpose). Delivery by post will be regarded as completed by 9:00 am on the second day after posting. This arrangement does not apply to the service of any documents in legal proceedings.
Delay in exercising a right under the contract will not take away that right or any other right.
We always welcome feedback from our customers and, whilst we always use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that your experience as a customer of ours is a positive one, we nevertheless want to hear from you if you have any cause for complaint.
5.Price and payment
The price of the goods is stated in our acceptance of your Order. It does not include VAT for which we will invoice you.
We are allowed to increase the price, by giving you a Notice of increase up to 30 days before we deliver the Services, but only to take into account any of the following:
- things which are beyond our control (examples include tax changes, foreign exchange fluctuations, increases in the costs of labour, manufacturing, and/or materials;
- changes in delivery dates, or quantities, types, or specifications of the Services that you have asked for;
- delay caused by you, or your supplying us with inadequate or inaccurate instructions.
You must pay our invoice in full within 28 days of our invoice date. You guarantee this time of payment. If you fail to pay on time, we may charge you interest at 8% per year above the Bank of England's base rate from time to time from the due date until payment of what you owe us, whether that happens before or after any court judgment on the debt that you owe. The interest will be earned daily, and you must pay it all with the overdue amount.
You are not allowed to hold back any payment due to us as a set-off or credit or counterclaim against some other amount that you think we owe you unless the law allows it. However, we may set off any amount you owe us against any amount we owe you.
We have made every reasonable effort to ensure that our Prices are correct. Prices will be checked when we process your Order. If the actual Price of the Services is lower than that stated in your Order, you will be charged the lower Price (unless the lower price was an obvious mistake that you could have reasonably recognised). If the actual Price of the Services is higher than that stated in your Order, we will ask you how you wish to proceed.
All Prices exclude VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your Order and the date of your payment, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you must pay. Changes in VAT will not affect any Prices where we have already received payment in full from you.
All payments for the Services must be made in advance before we release the Services to you.

The Parties will use their best efforts to negotiate in good faith and settle any dispute that may arise out of or relate to this Agreement or any breach of it.
If any such dispute cannot be settled amicably through ordinary negotiations between the Parties, or either or both is or are unwilling to engage in this process, either Party may propose to the other in writing that structured negotiations be entered into with the assistance of a fully accredited mediator before resorting to litigation.
12.3 If the Parties are unable to agree upon a mediator, or if the mediator agreed upon is unable or unwilling to act and an alternative mediator cannot be agreed, any party may within 14 days of the date of knowledge of either event apply to an independent third-party to appoint a mediator.
Within 14 days of the appointment of the mediator (either by mutual agreement of the Parties or by an independent third-party in accordance with their mediation procedure), the Parties will meet with the mediator to agree the procedure to be adopted for the mediation, unless otherwise agreed between the parties and the mediator.
All negotiations connected with the relevant dispute(s) will be conducted in confidence and without prejudice to the rights of the Parties in any further proceedings.
If the Parties agree on a resolution of the dispute at mediation, the agreement shall be reduced to writing and, once signed by the duly authorised representatives of both Parties, shall be final and binding on them.
If the Parties fail to resolve the dispute(s) within 60 days (or such longer term as may be agreed between the Parties) of the mediator being appointed, or if either Party withdraws from the mediation procedure, then either Party may exercise any right to seek a remedy through arbitration by an arbitrator to be appointed by an independent third-party.
Any dispute shall not affect the Parties' ongoing obligations under the Agreement.
The English courts have the only right to hear claims related to our Services, and all disputes are governed by English law.
