We may have to suspend the supply of certain goods to: (a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes: (b) modify the goods to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements: (c) make changes to the goods as requested by you or notified by us to you. (d) where we have legitimate concerns over the safety of employees/contractors or where you ask us to perform our obligations in a manner which contradicts our policies or in breach of laws/regulations.

If you do not pay us for the goods when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the goods until you have paid us the outstanding amounts.

We are not liable for any private installation work carried out by an installer which is outside the scope of our contract with you.

You hereby understand and agree that if your order is for supply of goods only you will enter a separate contract with an installer whose details we may provide to you, at your request. You are under no obligation to accept the installer and you may source an alternative installer if preferred. We encourage you to seek comparative quotes and make your own choice. We do not recommend you use a specific installer: we only provide details of approved installers if requested. If you accept our approved installer, we will receive no commission or other reward and you must pay the installer directly. For the avoidance of doubt, we shall not be liable for any works carried out by an approved installer if your contract with us is for the supply of goods only.
- YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
8.1 You can end the contract with us before it is completed.
Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract: (a) If what you have bought is faulty or mis-described you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service reperformed or to get some or all of your money back): (b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do: (c) If you have just changed your mind about the product. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods.
You do not have the right to change your mind in respect of goods which are cut, made to measure or otherwise customised and are bespoke to your property. These include but are not limited to windows and roofs.
8.3 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 at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any goods which have not been provided. The reasons are: (a) we have told you about an upcoming significant change to the goods or these terms which you do not agree to: (b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the goods you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed: (c) there is a risk that supply of the goods may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control: (d) we have suspended supply of the goods, or notify you we are going to suspend them: or (e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
8.4 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).
For most goods bought off-premises you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights are under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. If you ask us to cancel installation services during the cancellation period, we reserve the right to charge you for the value of services rendered up to the effective time of cancellation.
8.5 When you don’t have the right to change your mind.
You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of: (a) services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running: (b) goods sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them: (c) any goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
8.6 How long do I have to change my mind?
How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered. (a) Have you bought services? If so, you have 14 days after the day 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. (b) Have you bought goods? If so, you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless: (i) 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) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
8.7 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind.
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 a sum for damages. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered. 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 have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. If we agree to end the contract, we will refund any sums paid by you for goods not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) a reasonable sum for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

- PRICE & PAYMENT
12.1 Where to find the price.
The price of the goods (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated in the order form/schedule. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the goods advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the goods you order.
12.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT.
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.
12.3 What happens if we got the price wrong.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. If this happens, we shall take steps to rectify this with you. 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.
12.4 When you must pay and how you must pay.
All invoices must be paid strictly within terms. We accept payment by debit and credit card. (a) For goods, payment must be made in full before delivery if you are paying with your own funds. If you have successfully applied for credit, payment is due immediately upon delivery of goods, when you will be required to sign a delivery note. (b) For installation services, payment must be made in full at least 3 days before installation work commences, in the event you are using your own funds for the purchase. If you are using credit for the purchase, you will be asked to sign a satisfaction note at completion of the works and once signed the finance company will release payment to us. We deem completion to mean when our operatives leave site after carrying out the contracted works, with the understanding that further snagging works may be required. (c) If we are supplying goods only and you have a separate agreement with an installer whose details we provide, you must adhere to the installer’s payment terms.
12.5 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 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.
