TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
By placing an order with us you are agreeing to and accepting these Terms and Conditions.
1. ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS
1.1 All business is transacted between us and customers or prospective customers on these conditions. Conditions proposed by the customer shall apply only when they are expressly accepted by us in writing.
1.2 Placing an order does not constitute our acceptance of the order. Acceptance is only granted when we have confirmed (by email or in writing) the order. We reserve the right to decline acceptance of any order. Any order placed by a customer shall constitute an offer open for acceptance by us at any time until a written notice withdrawing the order is received by us.
1.3 All items are subject to availability. Customers will be advised should a product be out of stock, and will retain the option to cancel should the delivery period be lengthened.
2.1 All orders will be deemed to be at the advertised price for the goods at the point of confirming your order, unless agreed otherwise. All prices are subject to change without notice.
2.2 All prices stated are net of VAT, other taxes, insurance, transport and packing unless specified otherwise.
3.1 Delivery will be to the address stated in the order unless specified otherwise.
3.2 Dates and times for delivery are given in good faith, but do not constitute part of the agreement. We shall not be liable for loss or damage caused by failure to deliver at the stated time.
3.3 The customer may cancel an order if the goods have not in the meantime been despatched, or been ordered specially for the customer, or specially built for the customer.
3.3 Damage or Loss in transit: Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered free of any defect or shortage which would be apparent upon inspection at delivery, unless the customer upon delivery makes a note of it on the delivery note countersigned by the carrier and notifies us in writing the same day.
3.4 Defects or shortages on unpacking: Any problems apparent on unpacking must be reported to us in writing within 7 days of receipt of the delivery. After this, Tele-Products will not accept any claims for shortages or damages.
3.5 In the case of any such defect which might be the subject of a claim against a third party (such as the carrier or an insurance company) we shall have no liability unless the customer in addition to notifying us as aforesaid carries out all such steps as are necessary (and as the customer having made enquiry knows of) to enable a claim to be brought against such third party. In any such case we shall not be liable in respect of any such claim unless the customer keeps the goods the subject matter of the claim in the same state as they were in when the subject matter of the claim was discovered until we and/or any relevant third party have had a reasonable opportunity to inspect them.
3.6 Subject to defects noted as above, customers will be deemed to have accepted (and thereby to have lost the right to reject) all goods once they have been unpacked.
3.7 We shall have no liability for non-delivery of goods actually despatched unless informed in writing within 7 days of the date by which the customer might reasonably have expected the goods to be delivered.
3.8 Risk shall pass to the customer upon delivery of the goods or (where a customer is to collect goods from us) on the date that we have given the customer to collect the goods (whether or not the customer collects them on that date).

4.6 Where credit terms have been agreed they shall be automatically cancelled and all outstanding debts shall fall immediately due and payable in the event of any money not being paid on the due date.
4.7 If, at a time when any money is due by the customer to us, any amount is due by us to the customer or to any company then in the group (as defined in the Companies Act) of which the customer is a member, we shall have the right at our option to set off the one amount against the other and the customer as agent for all companies now or hereafter in its group consents thereto.
