3. Our Contract With You

3.1 How we will accept your order.  Our acceptance of your order will take place when we e-mail you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.   Given the bespoke nature of our work, this will be after full authorisation of payment has been obtained.

3.2 If we cannot accept you order. If we are unable to accept you order, we will inform you of this in wiring and will not charge you for the product.  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.

We use a ‘back-order’ system, and if a part is not in stock we will advise you immediately with an expected delivery date. Back-orders will automatically be despatched if stock becomes available within 30 days of your order. For orders where stock becomes available after 30 days we will contact you to check that the component is still required. Please advise us if this will not be satisfactory. Product availability is subject to change without notice.

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 10.2 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 them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

15.2 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. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
