2.1 These Terms, and any terms set out in Orders, shall set out the whole agreement between you and us for the sale of Goods. Please ensure that you read and understand these Terms before you submit any Order and ensure that all Orders are complete and accurate, as you will be obliged to pay for all Orders that you submit and will be bound by these Terms in respect of all such Orders.
2.2 Any descriptions, photographs or advertising we issue or illustrations contained in our brochures or website are issued or published solely to provide you with an approximate idea of the Goods they describe. Such representations do not form part of the agreement or any other contract between you and us for the sale of Goods.
2.3 If any of these Terms are inconsistent with any term contained within an Order, the terms contained in the Order shall prevail.
2.4 These Terms shall become binding on you and us when we receive your first Order by telephone and/or email (whichever is first) and confirm our acceptance of it to you.
2.5 You may place Orders up to the amount of the monthly credit limit we have agreed with you (the "Credit Limit"). We shall not accept your Order if any such Order received by us would result in you exceeding your Credit Limit. If for any reason an Order is processed which results in your Credit Limit being exceeded then the excess, together with any interest payable must be repaid in full upon request by us.
2.6 Any price list provided for the Goods is given on the basis that a binding contract shall only come into existence in accordance with clause 2.4. Such price list shall be valid for a period of seven calendar days from its date of issue, unless we notify you in writing that we have withdrawn it during this period or issue a new price list to you in that time.
2.7 You may amend or cancel an Order up to 4 hours after ordering by telephone and/or email (whichever is first). If you amend or cancel an Order, your liability to us shall be limited to payment to us of all costs we reasonably incur in fulfilling the Order until we receive your amendment or cancellation.

For avoidance of doubt, time shall not be of the essence for the purposes of this agreement.

5.2 If the Goods do not confirm with clause 3.1 and you notify us within the period specified in clause 7.1, we will replace all validly rejected Goods or, if replacement Goods are not available we will provide you with a full refund in respect of these Goods.
