Terms & Conditions of Supply

By completing the order form you are submitting an order for the specified goods and you are accepting that your order and the contract between the Company and you are subject to these terms and conditions (“Service Terms”). These Service Terms and do not affect your statutory rights.

The Contract
The Company must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted, and the contract formed. Once payment has been received the Company will confirm that your order has been received and accepted by sending an email to you at the email address you provide in your order form. The Company’s acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between the Company and you which is subject to the Service Terms (the “Contract”). Any terms or conditions sought to be imposed by you in your order will not form part of the Contract.

Price
The price payable for goods and services that you order is as stated on the website of the publisher from which you have been directed (“Publisher’s Site”). The price is exclusive of VAT (and will, where applicable, be shown on the Publisher’s website), unless otherwise stated. You may be required to pay extra for delivery; the Company will provide details of the delivery charges applicable to your order at the time you place your order.
