1. Effect of Conditions
These conditions of sale shall apply to all contracts made between D C Electronics - Motorsport Specialist Ltd (“DC”) and any purchaser (“the Customer”) of DC’s products (“the Goods”) or of DC’s services (“the Services). The Customer agrees that any other conditions which appear or are referred to on any document coming from the Customer shall not apply to any contracts with DC.
2. Contract Terms and Variations
These conditions of sale are considered by DC to be fair and reasonable and DC’s prices are based upon contracts made on these conditions. The Customer will be deemed to have accepted that these conditions are fair and reasonable unless the Customer notifies DC in writing to the contrary before any contract is made. No alteration to these conditions shall be binding on DC unless agreed in writing by DC. DC reserves the right to amend or change the terms of business, including charges for goods and fee rates for services, by giving one month’s notice in writing.
3. Delivery and Completion of Services
3.1 Delivery of the Goods shall be made by the Customer collecting the Goods at DC’s premises at any time after DC has notified the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection or, if some other place for delivery is agreed by DC, by DC delivering the Goods to that place.
3.2 Any date quoted for delivery of goods or completion of the Services is given in good faith but is not guaranteed and does not form a term or condition of contract. DC will endeavour to comply with any such date, but will not be liable for any failure from whatever cause to meet a date.
