6.6 If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection, if you are a consumer, we may end the contract and clause 11.2 will apply.
6.7 If you do not allow us access to your property to perform the services as arranged (and you do not have a good reason for this) we may charge you additional costs incurred by us as a result. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange access to your property, if you are a consumer, we may end the contract and clause 11.2 will apply.

6.11 You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.
6.12 We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website or given at the time of the order. 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 11.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work or additional products that are 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.

6.13.1 deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;

7. PRICE AND PAYMENT
7.1 The price of the product will be the price indicated on the order pages or on your quotation when you placed your order. The prices shown are exclusive of amounts in respect of VAT. You will pay VAT on top of the price listed at the applicable rate. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However, please see clause 7.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
7.2 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.
7.3 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We regularly check our prices 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.
7.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment via BACS. For smaller amounts, cheques and most credit cards are also accepted. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:
7.4.1 Unless otherwise agreed, for goods, you must pay for the products before we dispatch them.
7.4.2 For services, we will invoice you weekly in advance for the services until the services are completed. You must pay each invoice within 30 calendar days after the date of the invoice.
7.5 In some circumstances we may require full or part payment in advance of us beginning work on your Order. If this is the case we will tell you during the order process and payment shall be made on the terms agreed between us in which case clause 7.4 won’t apply.
7.6 If you have a 30 day account with us, we will agree terms of payment with you. You will pay for any goods and services ordered from us within 30 days of the date of invoice and the provisions of clause 7.4 will not apply to you. This clause 7.6 will apply only to those customers with whom we agreed deferred payment terms.
7.7 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 4% 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.
7.8 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue.
Clauses 8 to 12 (inclusive) apply only if you are a consumer.
8. 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. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract.
9. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
9.1 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 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:
9.1.1 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;
9.1.2 there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
9.1.3 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
9.1.4 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
9.2 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online, via e-mail or by telephone or fax you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund.
9.3 When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
9.3.1 services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
9.3.2 any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery; and,
9.3.3 any products that are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised.
9.4 How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
9.4.1 Have you bought services? If so, and you have the legal right to change your mind, 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.
9.4.2 Have you bought goods?, if so, and you have the legal right to change your mind, you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:
22.214.171.124 Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
126.96.36.199 Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the first delivery of the goods.
9.5 Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract (including any artwork fee payable).
9.6 For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions set out in this clause 9 do not apply if you are a business customer. Business customers do not have the right to cancel the contract or return the goods just because they have changed their mind.

10.1.1 Phone or email. Call customer services on 01480 494540 or email us at email@example.com . Please provide your name, home address, details of the order (including order number/invoice number) and, where available, your phone number and email address.

10.4 In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return. 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.
10.5 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.
10.6 If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
10.6.1 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.
10.6.2 The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.

10.7 We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
10.7.1 If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us.

11.1.2 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, for example, any relevant specification;

16.3 Subject to clause 16.2, we will under no circumstances whatever be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the Contract for any loss of profits, sales, business, or revenue, loss or corruption of data, information or software, loss of business opportunity, loss of anticipated savings, loss of goodwill or any indirect or consequential loss.

18.5 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.
