We will treat each order for Products or Services as an offer by you to purchase the Products and Services subject to these terms and conditions.

2.2 Description of Products/Warranty and Liability. Although we warrant that the Products will, at the time of delivery, correspond to the description given by us, all Products we sell are of a technical nature and it is not practical to publish detailed specifications of all the Products.
All images, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising are for the sole purpose of giving an approximate description of the Products. Whilst we endeavour to ensure all information is correct at the time of publication, Product specifications do vary. As such we cannot accept responsibility for incorrect information. Full details are available from the original Manufacturer’s brochures and websites. Except where the Customer is dealing as a Consumer, all other warranties, conditions or terms relating to fitness for purpose, merchantability or conditions of the products whether implied by statute, common law or otherwise are excluded and the Customer warrants that the Customer is satisfied as to the suitability of the Products for the Customer’s purpose. Products are not sold on a trial basis.
2.3 Availability of Products
All Products are subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time. However it is our policy to contact you if a Product is out of stock for more than 7 days and if you do not wish to proceed with the order or for any reason we cannot supply the Product we will arrange for the order to be cancelled.
3.1 Whilst every reasonable effort shall be made to keep any delivery date, time of delivery shall not be of the essence and we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by the Customer or any other person or company arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet any estimated delivery date.
