HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
- You will need to place an order via our Website.
- Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
- After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 6.4. Your order constitutes an offer to contract on these Business Terms.
- We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been dispatched and or that the Services have commenced or the date on which they will commence (Order Confirmation). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation.
- If we are unable to supply you with a Product or Service, for example because a Product is not in stock or a Service is no longer available or because of an error in the price on our Website as referred to in clause 12.5, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products or Service, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
- We will supply the Services to you from the date set out in the Order Confirmation until the contract is terminated by either party in accordance with clause 15.
- We will use reasonable endeavours to supply the Services to you in accordance with the Order Confirmation in all material respects.
- We will use reasonable endeavours to provide Services on time. However, there may be delays due to an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 18 for our responsibilities when an Event Outside Our Control happens.
- We will need certain information from you that is necessary for us to provide the Services. We will contact you by email about this. If you do not, after being asked by us, provide us with this information, or you provide us with incomplete or incorrect information, we may make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to cover any extra work that is required, or we may suspend the Services by giving you written notice. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance where you have not provided this information to us after we have asked. If we suspend the Services under this clause 7.4, you do not have to pay for the Services while they are suspended, but this does not affect your obligation to pay for any invoices we have already sent you.
- We may have to suspend the Services if we have to deal with technical problems. We will endeavour to contact you to let you know in advance where this occurs, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You do not have to pay for the Services while they are suspended under this clause 7.5 but this does not affect your obligation to pay for any invoices we have already sent you.
- If you do not pay us for the Services when you are supposed to as set out in clauses 12 and 13, we may suspend the Services with immediate effect until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you this. This does not affect our right to charge you interest under clause 12.6 or any right of termination we may have under these Business Terms.
- We shall have the right to make any changes to the Services which are necessary to comply with any applicable law or safety requirement, or which do not materially affect the nature or quality of the Services, and we shall notify you in any such event.
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE SERVICES
- In the unlikely event that there is any defect with the Services:
- In the first instance please consult our support centre (link);
- If you cannot find a resolution in our Knowledge Base (link) then please either raise a support ticket or call our support line and tell us as soon as reasonably possible;
- please give us a reasonable opportunity to repair or fix any defect; and
- we will use every reasonable effort to repair or fix the defect as soon as reasonably practicable. You will not have to pay for us to repair or fix a defect with the Services under this clause 8.1
- We cannot be held responsible for any issues or loss arising as a result of any incompatibility of the Services and or Products with your existing or future information technology equipment or set up and it is your responsibility to ensure the Services and Products are suitable for your requirements prior to entering into the contract.
OUR RIGHT TO VARY THESE TERMS
- We may revise these Business Terms from time to time at our sole discretion.
- Every time you order Products from us, the Business Terms in force at that time will apply to the Contract between you and us.
- Whenever we revise these Business Terms in accordance with this clause 9, we will keep you informed and give you notice of this by stating that these Business Terms have been amended and the relevant date at the top of this page.
- Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation, unless there is an Event Outside Our Control. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an Event Outside Our Control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.
- Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.
- The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
- You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
NO INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY
- Unfortunately, we do not delivery to addresses outside the UK.
- You may place an order for Products from outside the UK, but this order must be for delivery to an address in the UK.
PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AND DELIVERY CHARGES
- The prices of the Products and Services will be as quoted on our Website from time to time in our Price List (link). We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products and Services are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) or Services you ordered, please see clause 12.5 for what happens in this event.
- Prices for our Products or Services may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Order Confirmation as regards Products.
- The price of a Product or Service excludes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery or performance, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products and/or Services in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
- The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our Website from time to time. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to our Delivery Charges page (link).
- Our Website contains a large number of Products and Services. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products and / or Services on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
- where the Product's or Service’s correct price is less than the price stated on our Website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you or when carrying out the Services. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products or Services to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
- if the Product's or Service’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product and / or Service at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
- If you do not make any payment due to us by the due date for payment, we may at our sole discretion:
- Charge late payment compensation on each outstanding invoice to the full amount permissible by law under the late payment legislation in force at the time. Late payment legislation refers to the amended Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998, the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002 and the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2013;
- charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% per annum above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank PLC from time to time or, if this is deemed unreasonable by a court of England and Wales, at the standard court rate of the time pursuant to s69 of the County Courts Act 1984 (currently 8% per annum). 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; and
- cease provision of broadband services if an invoice remains unpaid for more than 14 days and any costs associated with or arising from the ceasing of services will be payable by you.
- If a Direct Debit is returned, or any other charge is incurred as a result of your non-payment of an invoice on the due date, we may at our sole discretion charge a fee incurred by us to you to cover our administration costs and by way of compensation for your breaching this contract.
- We reserve the right to hand over any unpaid accounts to one or more, of our appointed debt collection agencies. Our collection agencies may also levy a further fee added to the total debt for costs incurred in collecting the debt.
- For the avoidance of doubt, in respect of broadband services, if the phone line that the broadband is activated on is cancelled, and as a result our broadband service is automatically cancelled, you will still have to pay for the agreed charges and remaining term of any fixed term contract.
HOW TO PAY
- You can only pay for Products and / or Services using MasterCard, Visa, Electron and American Express, Direct Debit or other methods set out on our website from time to time.
- Payment for the Products and / or Services and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. We will not charge your debit card or credit card or other method until we dispatch your order or commence with your Services on the date set out in the Order Confirmation.
