2. How to conclude a Contract with us
2.1. These are the steps you need to take to conclude a Contract with us.
(A) Check variable information such as prices
2.2. We will display on our Website certain variable information which you will need to know before you place your Order, such as the range and descriptions of Products and Services and their current prices (exclusive of VAT). This information may also be available outside the Website, for example in printed documentation or supplied over the telephone by our sales staff.
2.3. Note that this variable information is known as an “invitation to treat” and not a contractual offer from us which you may accept. This means we reserve the right to correct any errors in that information without any liability to you. It also means that in no circumstances will we be contractually bound to supply you with Products or Services on the basis of any incorrect information, even if that information is repeated in your Order.
(B) Make sure you read and understand our terms
2.5. Please note that our online shopping facility is intended for businesses and not Consumers and that you may not use our online shopping facility if you are under 18 years of age. If you accept the legal terms referred to in Condition 2.4 on behalf of a corporate buyer, you represent that you are authorised to do so. If you are not so authorised, nor deemed in law to have such authority, you assume sole personal liability for the obligations set out in those legal terms.
(C) Complete your Order
2.6. You will be responsible for selecting the Products and/or Services you wish to buy, for supplying your delivery address, for telling us how you wish to pay and for giving us any other information we request to enable us to fulfil your Order and comply with the Contract.
