4.1            If you are not a consumer, you confirm that you have authority to bind any business on whose behalf you use our site to purchase products.

4.2            These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede and extinguish all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between us, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.

4.3            You acknowledge that entering into this contract you do not rely on any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in these terms or any document expressly referred to in them.

4.4            You and we agree that neither of us shall have any claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation based on any statement in this contract.

5.              How the contract is formed between you and us

5.1            Placing an order: Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.

5.2            After you place an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 9.1.

6.              Price and payment

6.1            Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which is shown including and excluding VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 6.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.

6.2            Changing the price before the goods are delivered. We reserve the right, by giving notice to you at any time before the goods are delivered, to increase the price to take account of any increase in the cost to us of supplying the goods to you which is due to:

(a)         Any factor beyond our control (which may include, but is not limited to, changes in our supply costs, exchange rate fluctuations and changes in import duties or levies);

(b)        Any change in delivery dates or quantities for the goods which you request; or

(c)         Any delay caused by your instructions or failure by you to give us adequate information or instructions.

6.3            We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

6.4            What happens if we got the price wrong or if there is a change in the price. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

6.5            The price of the product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the checkout process, before you confirm your order. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to our delivery charges page.

6.6            When you must pay and how you must pay.

(a)         We accept payment with credit or debit cards. We use Sage Pay to process our payments. Sage Pay is a PCI DSS Level 1 payment service provider. All card transactions are encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to your server from Sage Pay are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. Sage Pay say that you can be completely assured in the knowledge that no details can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information. More information about Sage Pay can be found at http://sagepay.co.uk/support/online-shoppers/about-sage-pay.

(b)        Payment for the products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance.

7.              Your rights to make changes

If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the changes are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 11 “Your rights to end the contract if you are a consumer”).

8.              Our rights to make changes

8.1            Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:

(a)         to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and

(b)        to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements; These changes will not affect your use of the product.

9.              Our contract with you

9.1            How we will accept your order. We will confirm our acceptance of your order to you by sending you an email that confirms that the products have been dispatched (Shipping Confirmation). The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Shipping Confirmation.

9.2            If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing. If your payment has already been processed then we will refund you the full price paid for the product including delivery charges. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

9.3            Your order number. After you place an order you will receive an email which will have an order number and an order date (see clause 5.2). This order number will also be contained in the Shipping Confirmation. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

10.            Delivery

10.1         We will confirm in the Shipping Confirmation when the goods have been shipped which will be without undue delay but in any event within 30 days of the date you ordered the goods.

10.2         We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event beyond our control (please see clause 17) then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but have not received.

10.3         If you are not at home when the product is delivered. All deliveries require a signature. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, a note will be left informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.

10.4         If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 13 will apply.

10.5         Your legal rights if we deliver goods late. Please note that clause 10.5 only applies if you are a consumer. If we miss the 30 day delivery deadline for any products then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply:

(a)         we have refused to deliver the products:

(b)        delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances): or

(c)         you told us before we accepted your order that the delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.

10.6         Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.

10.7         Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause10.5, you can cancel your order for any of the goods in accordance with clause 11.

10.8         When you become responsible for the goods. A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you or a carrier arranged by you collects it from us. It is therefore important that when the parcel is delivered that you or anyone accepting delivery on your behalf inspects the parcel. In the event that it is damaged, please ensure that a note of the damage is made on the signed for slip.

10.9         When you own the goods. You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full and once we have accepted your order.

10.10       What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 13 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of the product if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

10.11       Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:

(a)         deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;

(b)        update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;

(c)         make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you.

10.12       Your rights if we suspend the supply of products. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product for longer than 3 weeks in any 2 month period then we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 4 weeks and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.

10.13       If you do not receive the goods. If you do not receive the goods ordered within 30 days of the date of your order, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing via our contact page on our website or alternatively by email at sales@soundinduction.co.uk of the problem as soon as possible and within 7 days of the date on which the goods should have been delivered.

11.            Your rights to end the contract if you are a consumer

Please note that clause 11 only applies if you are a Consumer

11.1         You can always end your contract with us.  Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

(a)         If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause14;

(b)        If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause12.

(c)         If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause12. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;

(d)        In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 12.

11.2         Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:

(a)         we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to;

11.3         Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, are contained in the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013.

11.5         How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:

(ii)        Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period.  In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods.

11.6         Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is paid for and delivered. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) a reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

(b)        The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.

You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. We are under no obligation to give consent.

25.5         Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
