Wherever it is not possible to accept your order to buy Goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, offer to sell you the Goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state the period for which the offer or the price remains valid. 

15. Payment Terms

We will charge your credit account (or other means of payment) for payment upon receipt of your order. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the Goods from your account then we can cancel the contract and or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.

16. Delivery Charges

Delivery charges vary according to the type of Goods ordered.

17. Delivery

    17.1 Our delivery charges are set out on the delivery information page of our website.  We aim to despatch Goods as quickly as possible, and in any case within 7 days of receipt of payment, or for credit Customers, within 7 days of our acceptance of your order.

    17.2 We use third-party carriers to deliver our Goods.  While we try to ensure that our carriers provide the best service possible, we have no control over the Goods once they have been despatched with these carriers. We cannot accept any liability for delay or damage which may occur while Goods are in the possession of a third-party carrier.

    17.3 We ship all hazardous Goods in compliance with ADR regulations and the requirements imposed by our carriers.

    17.4 Please note that we are only able to deliver to addresses within the United Kingdom and Ireland, but excluding the Isle of Wight, the Isle of Man, the Scottish Isles, parts of Scotland and the Channel Isles.  If you believe that you may be affected by these delivery restrictions, please contact us for further information before placing your order.

    17.5 We will deliver the Goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the Goods left if you are out when we deliver.  It is the responsibility of the Buyer to notify us before dispatch of any specific delivery requirements, for example if you will need a tail-lift for heavy Goods. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the Goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence). We will aim to deliver the Goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and we will contact you to arrange an alternative time.

    17.6 In certain cases we will allow Customers to arrange collection of their Goods from our warehouse, either in person or via third-party couriers contracted by the Buyer.  If you wish to arrange a collection please contact us before ordering to ensure that this will be possible.  Where Customers arrange for Goods to be collected from us, the Goods will be considered as having been delivered by us at the time when they are collected.  Risk of damage or loss of the Goods will pass immediately to the Buyer upon collection.

18. Risk and Ownership

Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you, or if you fail to take delivery at the agreed time, the time when we tried to deliver. You will only own the Goods once they have been successfully delivered and when we have received cleared payment in full. Once Goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.

19. Acknowledgement and Acceptance of your Order

You will need to provide us with your e-mail address and we will notify you by e-mail as soon as possible to confirm receipt of your order and e-mail you again to confirm details. An acceptance of your order will take place on despatch of the good(s) ordered.

20. Cancellation Rights

    20.1 Under the Distance Selling Regulations you have the legal right to cancel your order within seven days of receipt of your Goods (with the exception of any made to order items). You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty. However, you will need to notify us in writing at sales_mistral@hotmail.com during this period if you wish to cancel your contract.

    20.2 If you have received the Goods before you cancel your contract, then you must send the Goods back to our contact address at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the Goods for delivery you must not unpack the Goods when they are received by you and you must send the Goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.

    20.3 In the interests of health and safety, all items returned under the Distance Selling Regulations should be sealed and unopened.  You must observe ADR and other transport regulations if returning hazardous items.

    20.4 Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited to us from your credit card will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order.

21. Damage, Defect and Shortage

    21.1 The Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer for any loss or damage whether arising directly or indirectly from the late delivery or short delivery of the Goods.  If short delivery does take place, the Buyer undertakes not to reject the Goods but to accept the Goods delivered as part performance of the contract.

    21.2 Formal notice of any damage, defect or shortage of the Goods must be notified to the Seller in writing within 7 working days of the Goods being delivered. It is therefore important that you carry out a reasonable inspection of the Goods upon delivery.  Where requested, the Buyer agrees to supply evidence of any damage, defect or shortage before claims will be granted.

    21.3 If Goods are obviously damaged or defective upon delivery, the Buyer should refuse delivery so that they may be returned to us by our couriers.

    21.4 Where Goods are found to be damaged, defective or short upon delivery, the liability of the Seller will be limited to the costs of refunding or replacing those Goods found to be damaged, defective or missing.  The Seller reserves the right to decide whether Goods will be refunded or replaced.

    21.5 You will be re-credited for the costs incurred in returning defective Goods.

22. Cancellation by Us

    22.1 We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if:

        22.1.1  we have insufficient stock to deliver the Goods you have ordered;

        22.1.2  we do not deliver to your area;

        22.1.3 we believe that you may intend to use the Goods for one of the purposes prohibited under section 4; or,

        22.1.4  one or more of the Goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers.

    22.2     If we do cancel your contract we will notify you by e-mail or telephone and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us from your credit card as soon as possible but in any event within 30 days of your order.

23. Liability

    23.1     If you do not receive Goods ordered by you within 30 days of the date on which you ordered them, we will have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing at our contact address of the problem within 60 days of the date on which you ordered the Goods (unless this is not reasonably practicable).  If you notify a problem to us under this condition, our only obligation will be, at your option:

        23.1.1  to make good any shortage or non-delivery;

        23.1.2  to replace or repair any Goods that are damaged or defective; or

        23.1.3  to refund to you the amount paid by you for the Goods in question in whatever way we choose.

    23.2     Both parties shall only be liable under this contract for losses, which are a reasonably foreseeable consequence of the relevant breach of contract.  The liability of the Seller for breach of these terms or for any claim based on any defect in the Goods supplied shall not exceed the price originally received for the Goods.

    23.3     You must observe and comply with all applicable regulations and legislation, including obtaining all necessary customs, import or other permits to purchase Goods from our site.  The importation or exportation of certain of our Goods to you may be prohibited by certain national laws.  We make no representation and accept no liability in respect of the export or import of the Goods you purchase.

    23.4     Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to limit any rights you might have as a consumer under applicable local law or other statutory rights that may not be excluded nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for any death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.

24. Notices

Unless otherwise expressly stated in these terms and conditions, all notices from you to us must be in writing and sent to our contact address (given at the end of this document) and all notices from us to you will be displayed on our website from time to time.

            "The prices payable for Goods that you order are as set out in our website. All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering information. 

Where a purchase order is submitted, a sales quotation will be provided on which prices will be exclusive of VAT.  These prices may differ from those shown on our website if previously agreed by both parties. 

Wherever it is not possible to accept your order to buy Goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, offer to sell you the Goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state the period for which the offer or the price remains valid. 

Where the Buyer holds a valid EU VAT registration, it may be possible to process the sale without VAT.  However, this facility is not available on our website.  Please contact us first if you wish to make a VAT-exempt purchase."

        30.2.2 Replace the entire contents of section 15. Payment Terms with the following: 

            "Credit terms may be agreed before receipt of your order.  In the case of public bodies (such as schools, universities and councils), we normally offer a 30-day credit facility on official purchase orders.  Full details of this facility can be found here.  Please contact us before purchase for more information regarding the availability of credit terms.

Where credit terms have been agreed, full payment will become due after the agreed period.  Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue from the date when payment becomes due calculated on a daily basis until the date of payment at the rate of 5% of the amount due.  Such interest shall accrue after as well as before any judgement.

The Buyer shall pay all accounts in full and not exercise any rights of set-off or counter-claim against invoices submitted by the Seller.

Where credit terms have not been agreed, we will charge your credit account for payment upon receipt of your order. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the Goods from your account then we can cancel the contract and or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have."
