2 BASIS OF THE SALE

2.1 The Seller shall sell and the Trade Buyer shall purchase the Goods in accordance with any written quotation of the Seller which is accepted by the Trade Buyer, or any Order of the Trade Buyer which is accepted by the Seller, subject always to these Terms, which shall govern the Contract. In the event of conflict between the Written terms of the quotation or Order and these Terms, the quotation or Order shall apply.

2.2 No variation to these Terms shall be binding unless agreed in Writing between the authorised representatives of the Trade Buyer and the Seller.

2.3 The Seller’s employees and agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless confirmed by the Seller in Writing. In entering into the Contract the Trade Buyer acknowledges that it does not rely on any such representations which are not so confirmed.

2.4 Any advice or recommendation given by the Seller or its employees or agents to the Trade Buyer or its employees or agents as to the storage, application or use of the Goods which is not confirmed in Writing by the Seller is followed or acted upon entirely at the Trade Buyers own risk, and accordingly the Seller shall not be liable for any such advice or recommendation which is not so confirmed.

2.5 Installation and technical requirements should always be checked and discussed with the Seller prior to sale to the End Purchaser. Where technical advice is given by the Seller, it is based on the Seller’s understanding of the information supplied by the Trade Buyer and is not intended as a substitute for a site survey by a competent person.

2.6 Any Sales Materials are issued solely to provide the Trade Buyer with an approximate idea of the Goods they describe. They do not form part of the Contract.

2.7 Any typographical, clerical or other error or omission in the Sales Material shall be subject to correction without any liability on the part of the Seller.

2.8 The Seller has the right to amend these Terms from time to time. The Trade Buyer’s Order will be subject to the version of the Terms in force at the time the Trade Buyer orders Goods from the Seller, unless any change to the Terms is required by law or regulatory authority.

2.9 The Trade Buyer acknowledges that the Seller will own the copyright, design right and all other intellectual property rights in the Goods and any drafts, drawings or illustrations the Seller makes in connection with the Goods for the Trade Buyer.

3 ORDERS

3.1 No Order submitted by the Trade Buyer shall be deemed to be accepted by the Seller and such Order shall only become binding on the Trade Buyer and the Seller at the earlier of when the Seller:

3.1.1 issues the Trade Buyer with a written acceptance of the Order; or

3.1.2 delivers the Goods to the Trade Buyer; or

3.1.3 notifies the Trade Buyer that the Goods are ready for collection.

3.2 The Trade Buyer shall be responsible to the Seller for ensuring the accuracy of the terms of any Order (including any applicable specification) submitted by the Trade Buyer, and for giving the Seller any necessary information relating to the Goods within a sufficient time to enable the Seller to perform the Contract in accordance with its terms.

3.3 No Order which has been accepted by the Seller may be cancelled by the Trade Buyer except with the agreement in Writing of the Seller and on terms that Trade Buyer shall indemnify the Seller in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs (including the cost of all labour and materials used), damages, charges and expenses incurred by the Seller as a result of cancellation.

4 SPECIFICATION

4.1 Subject to the remainder of this clause 4, the quality, quantity and description of and any specification for the Goods shall be as set out in the Seller’s quotation (if accepted by the Trade Buyer) or the Trade Buyer’s Order (if accepted by the Seller).

4.2 The Seller uses only high-quality pigments, but due to the nature of the decorative items the colours might not be exactly matching the Sales Materials or Website. All Goods sold are as they are and the quality of colouring is as close as possible to the samples shown. The Trade Buyer is advised to ensure that the End Purchaser views real, applied samples prior to the final purchase.

4.3 All quantities provided in the quotation, Order or Sales Materials are approximate only. The information contained in such literature is intended as a guide only and the Seller does not warrant the accuracy of the information contained. Quantities can only accurately worked out by the Trade Buyer as finishes are hand applied and therefore colours, coverage and other factors can change based on the applicator’s person.

4.4 The photography used in the Sales Materials or other communications is representative of the Goods on a given day in typical ambient lighting or studio conditions. The Trade Buyer accepts that these are subject to outside influences over which the Seller has no control.

4.5 Due to the nature of the decorative items offered by the Seller, colours might differ between batches and buckets. It is strongly advised to use a single batch of paint or plaster for a single project and mix decorative coatings together before applying them. Once applied, variations between colours will be occurring naturally and the Seller shall not be liable to the Trade Buyer in respect of any such variation.

4.6 Finishes offered by the Seller are Decorative only -unless stated otherwise in wiring- and do not replace or act as structural materials. Heat amplitudes, weather, thermal or mechanical movement will affect it and the surface will not be held together under stress or other effects. Proper surface preparation, maintenance manuals, repair and damages to the applied finishes are not handled by the Seller and are the sole responsibility of the Trade Buyer or End Purchaser.

4.7 Finishes offered by the Seller are not waterproof, unless stated otherwise. Waterproofing due to the nature of the finishes is the responsibility of the Trade buyer and End purchaser and relies on their understanding, application skills and methods. The Seller does not take any responsibility for improper applications and any damages caused by this.

4.8 The Trade Buyer acknowledges and shall ensure that the End Purchaser is aware that painted and finished surfaces may discolour. The Trade Buyer shall ensure that the End Purchaser is aware they must follow the cleaning and use instructions provided to maintain the Goods in good condition.

4.9 The Seller operates a policy of continuous product development and improvement and the Trade Buyer accepts that changes in detail may occur between ordering and delivery.

4.10 The Seller reserves the right to make any changes in the specification of the Goods which are required to conform to any applicable statutory or EC requirements or, where the Goods are to be supplied to the Seller’s specification, which do not materially affect their quality or performance.

5 PRICE OF THE GOODS

5.1 The price of the Goods shall be the Seller’s quoted price or, where no price has been quoted (or a quoted price is no longer valid), the price listed in the Seller’s (as applicable to the Trade Buyer) price list current at the date of acceptance of the Order. All prices quoted are valid for 14 days only unless revised earlier by the Seller or until earlier acceptance by the Trade Buyer, after which time they may be altered by the Seller without giving notice to the Trade Buyer.

5.2 Where the Goods are supplied for export from the United Kingdom, the Seller’s export price list shall apply.

5.3 The Seller reserves the right, by giving notice to the Trade Buyer at any time before delivery, to increase the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost to the Seller which is due to any factor beyond the control of the Seller (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the cost of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture), any change in delivery dates, quantities or specifications for the Goods requested by the Trade Buyer, or any delay caused by any instructions of the Trade Buyer or failure of the Trade Buyer to give the Seller adequate information or instructions.

5.4 Except as otherwise stated under the terms of any quotation or in any price list of the Seller, and unless otherwise agreed in Writing between the Trade Buyer and the Seller, all prices are given by the Seller on an ex works basis, and where the Seller agrees to deliver the Goods otherwise than at the Seller’s premises, the Trade Buyer shall be liable to pay the Seller’s charges for transport, packaging and insurance.

5.5 The price is exclusive of any applicable value added tax, which the Trade Buyer shall be additionally liable to pay to the Seller.

6 TERMS OF PAYMENT

6.1 The price for Bespoke Goods becomes payable in full by the Trade Buyer at the time that the Order is placed.

6.2 Subject to clause 6.1 and any special terms agreed in Writing between the Trade Buyer and the Seller, the Seller invoices the goods before they can be delivered or picked up.

6.3 The Trade Buyer shall pay the price of the Goods as soon as the invoice or pro forma invoice has been issued. Delivery or pickup of the goods can not take place unless the total invoice amount has been confirmed as paid by the Seller.

6.4 Any purchase over a £1000 value should be paid by a Trade Buyer via Bank Transfer.

6.5 If the Trade Buyer fails to pick up the goods once the invoice has been paid, or any cost arises that was not invoiced at the time the order was placed, the Seller can charge the Trade Buyer interest (both before and after any judgment) on the amount unpaid, at the rate of 8% per annum above Barclays Bank Plc base rate from time to time, administrative fees not included, until payment in full is made (a part of a month being treated as a full month for the purpose of calculating interest).

7 DELIVERY

7.1 Delivery of the Goods shall be made by the Trade Buyer collecting the Goods at the Seller’s premises at any time after the Seller has notified the Trade Buyer that the Goods are ready for collection or, if some other place for delivery is agreed by the Seller in Writing, delivering the Goods to that place. The Seller cannot be held liable for any missed installation dates due to the late delivery of Goods.

7.2 Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only and the Seller shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods however caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the Contract unless previously agreed by the Seller in Writing.

7.3 The Goods may be delivered by the Seller in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Trade Buyer.

7.4 The Trade Buyer should allow at least 5 working days for delivery.

7.5 Estimated delivery dates can be set out in the Seller’s quotation or acknowledgement but in case this is not provided 7.4 acts as a guideline.

7.6 Any shortages and/or damage to the Goods must be reported within 24 hours of delivery. If the Trade Buyer does not notify the Seller within 24 hours the Goods will be deemed to be delivered in accordance with the Order. A signed delivery note or delivery scan will be proof of delivery.

7.7 If the Seller fails to deliver the Goods (or any instalment) for any reason other than any cause beyond the Seller’s reasonable control or the Trade Buyer’s fault, and the Seller is accordingly liable to the Trade Buyer, the Seller’s liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to the Trade Buyer (in the cheapest available market) of similar goods to replace those not delivered over the price of the Goods.

7.8 If the Trade Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Seller adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond the Trade Buyers reasonable control or by reason of the Sellers fault) then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Seller, the Sellers may:

7.8.1 store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Trade Buyer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or

7.8.2 sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to the Trade Buyer for the excess over the price under the Contract or charge the Trade Buyer for any shortfall below the price under the Contract.

8 INSTALLATION

8.1 The Trade Buyer shall inspect and approve the Goods on delivery and in any event prior to installation. If there is a defect in the Goods which is or would have been apparent upon inspection the Trade Buyer must report such defect within 24 hours of delivery and if it is not reported to the Seller, the Seller shall not be liable for any losses, costs or expenses (for example the cost of reinstallation or redecoration) incurred as a result of the Trade Buyer or the End Purchaser’s failure to inspect the Goods and enable the Seller to remedy such defect prior to installation.

8.2 All quantities and colours are approximate and subject to change without notice and should be physically checked by the Trade Buyer before commencing installation. This is due to the nature of decorative items, where 100% colour accuracy or the exact amount that is needed to cover the surface can not be accurately produced.

8.3 The Trade Buyer accepts that the Seller cannot be held responsible for the effects of any weather, UV light, thermal or mechanical movement or other factors that affect the Goods in situ. The Trade Buyer shall make the End Purchaser aware of the nature, limitations and handling or maintenance of the new finishes.

9 RISK AND PROPERTY

9.1 Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods shall pass to the Trade Buyer in the case of the Goods to be delivered:

The Trade Buyer hereby grants to the Seller a lien over any Goods which it purchases and uses for display purposes.

9.4 Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Trade Buyer (and provided the Goods are still in existence and have not been resold), or, in the case of display Goods, while such Goods remain subject to a lien, the Seller shall be entitled at any time to require the Trade Buyer to deliver up the Goods to the Seller and, if the Trade Buyer fails to do so forthwith, to enter upon premises of the Trade Buyer or any third party where the Goods are stored and repossess the Goods.

9.5 The Trade Buyer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods which remain the property of the Seller, but if the Trade Buyer does so all moneys owing by the Trade Buyer to the Seller shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Seller) forthwith become due and payable.
