Products are sold under the express understanding that;

Where goods are delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Seller to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Conditions or any claim by the Buyer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Buyer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
All deliveries refer exclusively to retail delivery addresses in mainland Britain. Orders for other addresses, the Highlands of Scotland or offshore addresses are considered subject to surcharge from the nearest nominated delivery point in mainland Britain.
Passing of Risk
The risk in goods supplied shall pass to the Buyer:
in the case of goods to be collected by the Buyer or its Agent, when goods are loaded by the Seller on to the vehicle collecting them or removed by the Buyer or its Agent from the Seller’s premises; and in other cases, when the goods are unloaded at the address nominated by the Buyer or its Agent for delivery.
Packaging and Handling
The packing material in its “as supplied” condition presents no hazard to health.
Tie bands which are used to secure boxed products should not be used for lifting.
Goods supplied vary in size and weight and persons handling them should be fully acquainted with the correct methods of handling them.
Certain items supplied have, due to their nature, sharp points or edges and should therefore be handled carefully.
Subject as expressly provided in these Conditions, and except where the goods are sold to a person dealing as a consumer (within the meaning of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 or any other applicable rule of law), all warranties, conditions or other terms implied by any applicable rule of law are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law, including (without limitation) all warranties, conditions or other terms implied by the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (other than the warranty as to title implied by S12 of that Act).
Where the goods are sold under a consumer transaction (as defined by the Consumer Transactions (Restrictions on Statements) Order 1976) the statutory rights of the Buyer are not affected by these Conditions.
Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by the Seller’s negligence, the Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer by reason of any representation, or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law, or under the express terms of the Contract, for any consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit, anticipated profit, turnover or otherwise), costs, expenses or other claims for any consequential compensation whatsoever (and whether caused by the negligence of the Seller, its employees or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the supply of the goods or their use or resale by the Buyer, except as expressly provided in these Conditions.
The Seller shall be under no liability in respect of any defect in the goods arising from any recommendation, drawing, design, specification or instruction supplied by the Buyer.
The Seller shall be under no liability in respect of any defect arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, abnormal working conditions and use of goods, failure to follow the Seller’s or manufacturers instructions (whether oral or in writing), misuse or alteration or repair of the goods without the Seller's approval.
The Seller shall not be liable for any failure to observe or perform or for any losses resulting from the breach of, any of the Conditions by reason of acts of God, war, riots, civil commotions, strikes, lock-outs, trade disputes, fires, breakdowns, interruptions of transport, government action, delay in delivery by the Seller’s suppliers or other cause whatsoever beyond the Seller’s control. In such circumstances the Seller may terminate the unperformed part of any Contract by notice in writing delivered to the Buyer within seven days of the occurrence of such action or circumstances which have resulted in the Seller failing to observe or perform any Conditions.
