Terms & conditions
We advise all our online customers to read through these AUTOERA.CO.UK Terms and Conditions before every transaction.
These Terms and Conditions form a legal agreement between us and can only be changed with our written consent. We reserve the right to amend the Terms and Conditions at our sole discretion by changing them on the web site.
We try to ensure all information on the web site is accurate. If you find any inaccurate information on the web site please let us know on email@example.com and we will correct it as soon as we can. We make no representations that information on the web site is accurate or up to date or complete and accept no liability for any loss or damage caused by inaccurate or incomplete information. This web site contains a lot of data and inevitably there may be errors in it.
1. Our Contract
1.1 These Terms and Conditions govern your use of our Website and shall apply, if you are a consumer, to the supply of goods sold by AUTOERA Ltd ("we" and "us") to the customer ("you") and constitute the entire and only agreement between us in relation thereto. If you do not agree to the Terms cease use of our web site immediately.
1.2 All orders placed by you are on the basis of these Terms and Conditions and are subject to acceptance by us by delivery of the goods to you at which point a legally binding contract is constituted between us. The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of your order does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.
1.3 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the goods have been dispatched (the “Dispatch Confirmation”). The contract between us (the “Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
1.4 The Contract will relate only to those goods whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
2. Goods, Price & Payment
2.1 The price payable for the goods you order is as set out on our web site at the time you place your order, except in cases of obvious error. Prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs. All brochures, drawings, shapes particulars and descriptions and price lists are intended only to present a general idea of the goods described.
2.2 We reserve the right to change the price of commodity goods, such as copper, due to market conditions but we will confirm the prevailing price with you before accepting your order. We are not obliged to accept your order for such goods and may decline it or limit the order quantity.
2.3 On occasion, the prices payable of goods advertised on our web site may differ from those prices offered in the then current catalogue or in one of our trade counters, and we are under no obligation to honour any web site price if there is such a difference. We are not obliged to supply you with goods to you at an incorrect, lower price even if we have acknowledged your order or despatched the goods, if the error in pricing is obvious and you could easily have recognised that it was an error.
2.4 Occasionally an error may occur with our web site and goods may be incorrectly priced in which circumstances we will not be obliged to supply the goods at the incorrect price.
2.5 Payment for all goods must be by credit or debit card and we must receive payment for the whole of the price of the goods you order, and any applicable charges for delivery, before your order can be processed unless we have agreed otherwise in advance in writing.
3. Delivery & Title
3.1 We will deliver the goods in accordance with your order usually within the stated delivery time but certainly within 30 days. In the unlikely event that we do not make the goods available to you within 30 days of accepting your order you will have the option of cancelling your order without liability to us by notifying us accordingly prior to delivery. This is your only remedy for such delay. A valid signature will be required on collection or delivery. In the unlikely event that you have not received all the goods within the stated delivery time, you must notify us immediately.
3.2 For reasons of health and safety and to avoid any property damage, large items can only be delivered to the exterior of a ground floor location at the delivery address. You must therefore make your own arrangements at your own risk if the relevant item needs to be transported from the delivery location. We will not provide any unpacking, installation or fitting services upon delivery unless otherwise agreed by us.
3.3 You must do all that you reasonably can to enable delivery to take place at the given time and place. If you delay delivery, or delivery fails because you have not taken appropriate steps, we will try to arrange for an alternative delivery date within 30 days of the failed delivery. If delivery fails as a result of circumstances within your reasonable control, the cost of any re-delivery shall be borne by you. If we are unable to arrange a date for re-delivery we may cancel your order and refund to you the price that you have paid for the goods, less the failed delivery costs.
3.4 Without prejudice to Clause 3.3, upon delivery of the goods to you, the goods shall be at your risk. In spite of delivery having been made, title in the goods shall not pass to you until you have paid the price for the goods in full and no other sums whatsoever shall be due to us from you. Until title in the goods passes from us, you shall hold the goods on a fiduciary basis as bailee and shall store the goods at your own cost separately from all other goods in your possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as our property. You may not resell the goods before ownership has passed to you.
3.5 It is your responsibility to ensure that all goods ordered are acceptable and permitted in your country.
3.6 If you order goods from our website for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
3.7 Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the goods are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
While we endeavour to hold sufficient stock to meet all orders, if we have insufficient stock to supply or deliver the goods ordered and paid for by you, we may supply or deliver a substituted product or refund you the price paid for such goods as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days.
5. Cancellation & Returns
5.1 On cancellation for whatever reason, you must return the goods to us at your cost unless we agree that you may dispose of them in which case please comply with the manufacturer’s instructions before disposing of hazardous goods. Where the goods are being returned because they are faulty, incorrect goods or because of unsuitable substitution by us, we will meet the cost of return but we ask that you allow us to nominate the carrier.
5.2 If you are a consumer, you may cancel any order placed (whether or not acknowledged), at any time, within 7 working days, beginning with the day after the day on which you receive the goods, and receive a full refund of the price or any part thereof paid. To cancel any order, you must inform us of such cancellation in writing, return the goods in their delivered condition immediately, and at your sole cost and risk. Any statutory consumer rights are unaffected by these conditions. For the avoidance of doubt, this clause will not apply where the goods have been made to measure, or created, altered or modified to accord your particular requirements. The right specified in this clause does not apply if you are buying goods otherwise than as a consumer.
5.3 If some or all of the goods you receive from us are not what you requested or they were damaged in some way whilst being delivered or are not of satisfactory quality you must advise us of this as soon as possible (and in any event within 48 hours of receiving the goods) after receiving the goods by either emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning us on (+44)07564987313
5.4 If you wish to exercise your rights under paragraph 5.3, please follow our ‘Returns of Goods’ policy. At our discretion we will either (a) despatch the correct goods or a replacement to you; or (b) refund you the purchase price.
5.5 If you do not notify us promptly under paragraph 5.4 and return the goods then we will not replace, cancel or refund the goods.
5.6 If you wish to make a complaint about our service, please contact us in writing, by email or by telephone as set out in our Contact us . section .
