Terms of Business ...



1 Formation of Contract

1.1     Any order sent to the Seller by the Purchaser shall be accepted entirely at the discretion of the Seller, and, if so accepted, will only be accepted upon these conditions (hereafter referred to as the "Conditions") and by means of the Seller's standard order acknowledgement form.

1.2    Each order which is so accepted shall constitute an individual legally binding contract between the Seller and the Purchaser and such contract is referred to in these Conditions as an "Order".

1.3    These Conditions shall override any contrary different or additional terms or conditions (if any) contained on or referred to in an order form or other documents or correspondence from the Purchaser, and no addition alteration or substitution of these terms will bind the Seller or form part of any Order unless they are expressly accepted in writing by a person authorised to sign on the Seller's behalf.

2 Specification

All courses supplied by the Seller shall be in accordance with (i) the current edition of the relevant course/s description as published from time to time by the Seller (copies of which are available from the Seller upon request) and (ii) those further specifications or descriptions (if any) expressly listed or set out on the face of the Order.  No other specification, descriptive material, written or oral representation, correspondence or statement, promotional or sales literature shall form part of or be incorporated by reference into the Order.

3 Acceptance

The Purchaser shall be deemed to have accepted all course/s upon their delivery by the Seller to the address specified in the Order.

4 Delivery and Risk

4.1    Unless otherwise stated in the Order, the price quoted includes course/s delivery to the address specified in the Order, provided that the Seller reserves the right to make an additional charge to cover any increase in transport costs occurring before the date of the course/s delivery.

4.2    Any time or date for delivery of the course given by the Seller is given in good faith, but is an estimate only.

4.3    Risk shall pass to the Purchaser upon course delivery within the Purchaser's premises.

5 Title and Payment

5.1    Unless otherwise stated in the Order, payment of the price of the course/s delivered pursuant to an Order shall become due no later than 14 days prior to the course date stated.

5.2    Interest accruing from day to day at the rate of 2% per month will be charged to the Purchaser by the Seller on the balance of the unpaid course purchase price due to the Seller and still outstanding 60 days following the date of delivery of the course.

5.2.1 The Seller reserves the right to refuse at any time to execute any order or contract if at any time the arrangements for payment of the price or financial references are not considered satisfactory by the Seller.

5.2.2 A bespoke order once placed can only be cancelled if the course material has not been produced.  No course/s may be returned for credit or adjustment without the Seller's written consent. In the absence of special circumstances it is the policy of the Seller to grant such consent provided that the Seller has incurred no costs otherwise a cancellation fee may be payable.

5.3.1 Title to any course/s delivered to the Purchaser shall not pass to the Purchaser until the whole of the price has been paid to the Seller.

5.3.2 By accepting delivery of the courses the Purchaser shall be deemed to have given permission to the Seller and its duly authorised agents to enter upon the premises of the Purchaser to recover any items or goods left which have not been paid for within the period specified in Condition 5.2.

5.3.3 Notwithstanding that Title in the goods/courses has not passed to the Purchaser the Seller shall be entitled to sue for the price and to charge interest pursuant to Condition 5.3 once payment has become due.

5.4    Cancellation by Purchaser - the Purchaser shall be liable to pay the full invoiced purchase price and storage charges if the Purchaser refuses to take delivery of the course/s once they are ready for delivery.

5.5    Variation of Purchase Price - prices quoted by the Seller are based on prices paid for the course/s and costs of transport by the Seller immediately following the acceptance of the Order.  Prices are therefore subject to variation by the Seller in the event that there is any increase in charges which occur after the acceptance date and before the date of course/s delivery.

6 Storage

If the Seller shall be unable, through circumstances beyond its control to deliver the course/s within 14 days after notification to the Purchaser or its agent that the courses are ready for delivery, the Seller shall be entitled to arrange storage on behalf of the Purchaser, whereupon delivery shall be deemed to have taken place, all risk in the goods shall pass to the Purchaser, and delivery to the Purchaser of the relevant receipt shall be deemed to be delivery of the courses for the purposes of Condition 4.  All charges incurred by the Seller for storage or insurance shall be paid by the Purchaser within 30 days of submission of an invoice.

7  Force Majeure

7.1    The Seller shall not be under any liability for any failure to perform any of its obligations under the Order due to Force Majeure.  Following notification by the Seller to the Purchaser of such cause, the Seller shall be allowed a reasonable extension of time for the performance of its obligations.

7.2    For the purposes of this Condition, "Force Majeure" means fire, explosion, flood, lightning, Act of God, act of terrorism, war, rebellion, riot, sabotage, or official strike or similar official labour dispute, or events or circumstances outside the reasonable control of the party affected thereby.

8  Confidentiality

Both the Seller and the Purchaser shall each keep confidential and shall not without the prior consent in writing of the other disclose to any third party any technical or commercial information which it has acquired from the other as a result of discussions, negotiations and other communications between them relating to the course/s and the Order.

9  Economic Loss

Subject to Condition 10, and notwithstanding anything contained in these Conditions (other than Condition 10) or the Order, in no circumstances shall the Seller be liable, in contract, tort, (including negligence or breach of statutory duty) or otherwise howsoever, and whatever the cause thereof, (i) for any loss of profit, business, contracts, revenues, or anticipated savings, or (ii) for any special indirect or consequential damage of any nature whatsoever.  The maximum liability of the Seller to the Purchaser shall be the value of the course/s supplied.

10 Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977

10.1  If and to the extent that section 6 and/or 7(3A) of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 applies to the Order, no provision of these terms and conditions shall operate or be construed to operate so as to exclude or restrict the liability of the Seller for breach of the express warranties contained in Condition 5, or for breach of the applicable warranties as to title quiet possession and quality implied into the terms and conditions of the Order by of the Sale of Goods Act 1979, or  the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 or the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994.

10.2  If and to the extent that section 2(1) of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 applies to the Order, nothing in these terms and conditions shall operate or be construed to operate so as to exclude or restrict the liability of the Seller for death or personal injury caused to the Purchaser by reason of the negligence of the Seller or of its servants, employees or agents.

11 Applicable Law

The Order shall be considered a contract made in England and shall be governed in all respects by the law of England and the parties agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
