The contract between us

We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Your payment of the price for the goods represents an offer on your part to purchase the goods, which will be accepted by us when we send to you an email that the goods have been sent to you. Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us.

 

Price

The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out in our website. They are subject to alterations without notice.

You may be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. Our delivery charges are set out in our website.

 

Colour reproduction

We make every effort to display accurately on our website the colours of our products. However we cannot guarantee that the colour you see on your monitor’s display accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery. This is because we are limited by the technology we use to deliver our website pages to you, and by the specifications of your own monitor and computer.

Please note that the colours of the products delivered to you are the best possible matches using our tinting machines and there may be slight variations in colour between the colour represented on our website (or the colour you request directly with us) and the colour of the product delivered to you.

 

Proper use of products

We can provide technical data sheets and health and safety sheets for all products supplied by the Group. You must contact us to obtain the most recent version of these sheets.

You must always refer to the most recent technical data sheets for products purchased for the correct application methods and coverage rates.

We supply all products to you on the condition that we cannot be held responsible in the event they are used for any other purpose than that specified by the manufacturer.

If we give any recommendations and advice, such recommendations and advice are given without legal responsibility. We shall not be liable to you in the event of damage to goods or injury to persons resulting from your negligent or improper use or handling of goods, your employees or your agents or members of the general public, or any loss of profit or contracts or other consequential losses of any kind however caused.

The Owner disclaims all warranties, express or implied, as to the accuracy of the information contained in any of the materials on this website to the extent permitted by applicable law.

Cancellation of order

Once an official order has been accepted cancellation of the contract will be at our discretion. A cancellation will not be accepted in any circumstances where a product has been specially made to fulfil the order.

Delivery

We will deliver the goods ordered by you to the address you give us for delivery at the time you make the order.

Delivery will be made as soon as possible after your order is accepted and in any event within 30 days of your order.

All goods supplied by the Owner are on an ex-works basis unless otherwise agreed in writing between you and us.

 

We will not entertain any claim for damage in transit, shortage of delivery, or loss of goods will be unless in the case of damage in transit or shortage of delivery, a separate notice in writing is given to the carrier concerned and to the Owner at the time of delivery and the Owner receives a complete claim in writing at its head office within three days of delivery, and in the case of loss of goods, the Owner and the carrier concerned receive, in the case of the Owner at its head office, a complete claim in writing made within fifteen days from date of despatch.
