21.50 If you experience any problems with any Goods after the Contract is formed (at the moment of purchase and collection), you are protected by the full range of English Consumer Law and our Terms and Conditions do not cancel those Consumer Rights.
Use of Goods
21.51 Any advice given by our staff, agents or servants during telephone/Internet orders is based entirely upon information provided by you. Where advice is given by our staff, agents or servants, such advice shall amount to an opinion only and we shall not accept liability for any inaccuracies therein. Goods supplied are supplied only to correspond to the purpose for which Goods of that kind are commonly supplied and not for any alternative uses to which they may be put. We shall accept no liability for any failure of Goods due to any such alternative use, amendment or modification.
21.52 You confirm that you shall comply with any and all rules relating to use of the Goods and fully accept that we shall not be liable for any loss which results from forced, misdirected, inappropriate or unqualified installation of any Goods or inadequate maintenance of the Goods. Furthermore, we shall accept no liability for death or personal injury, unless caused directly by our own negligence.
21.53 Any Goods, or parts of them, that are modified or adapted by you or any third party shall no longer be warranted by the manufacturer nor shall we be liable for any failures resulting from any such modification or adaptation.
21.54 Please note that all website payments are taken in full at the time of order, regardless of stock. The total price paid represents an amount to us for the supply of Goods or Services or Hire. Orders for in-store collection of Goods require full payment at the time of collection.
21.55 Quotations for Goods are given on the assumption that no variation in the Price will be made by the manufacturer/sole importer and that Government levies remain unaltered. In the event of such changes, the Price of any orders placed before the variation will remain the same and no further increases will be passed to you.
Events beyond our control
21.56 We shall accept no liability in respect of any failure to supply Goods or Services you have ordered or any delay in doing so or for any damage or defect to Goods delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control including, without limitation, strikes, lock-outs and other industrial disputes, breakdown of systems or network access, flood, fire, explosion or accident, acts of God, war or actions by third parties.
Third Party Rights
21.57 Notwithstanding any other provisions of these terms and conditions, nothing in these terms and conditions shall confer, nor is it intended to confer, a benefit on any third party (for the purposes of the Contract (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or for any other purpose).
21.58 These terms and conditions shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with English Law and industry custom and practice, and the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction in respect of any claims or disputes (whether contractual or non-contractual) arising therefrom.
