- 1.1 These terms and conditions of business shall govern any contract between you and us for the provision of goods, as defined below to the exclusion of any other terms.
- 1.2 Your order constitutes an offer by you to purchase the goods on these terms and conditions. Your offer will be deemed accepted by us when we issue our Confirmation of Order at which point a contract between you and us will come into existence.

You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by us or on our behalf which is not set out in the contract.

- 2.4 If you are not a business customer, you are a consumer. You have certain statutory rights as a consumer which are not affected by these terms. Contact your local trading standards office for more information. Words in italic type are legal words which clarify, rather than alter, the meaning of the relevant clause.
