2.2               The Order constitutes an offer by the Customer to purchase Products or Services or Products and Services in accordance with these Conditions.

2.3               The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when we enter into an agreement incorporating the Order or we issue a written Confirmation of Order at which point the Contract shall come into existence.

2.4               The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between us. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of Andway which is not set out in the Contract.

2.5               Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter or advertising issued by us and any descriptions of the Products or illustrations or descriptions of the Services contained in our showroom, catalogues or brochures or on our website are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Services and/or Products described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract nor have any contractual force.

2.6               Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately on our website and in our brochure, we cannot guarantee that those images accurately reflect the colour of the Products and the colour of the Products may vary from those images.

2.7               Any quotation given by Andway shall not constitute an offer, and is only valid for a period of 20 Business Days from its date of issue.

2.8               All of these Conditions shall apply to the supply of both Products and Services except where application to one or the other is specified.

3.1               The Products are described in our showroom, catalogue, brochure or on our website, save that colours can vary (see clause 2.6 above).

3.2               To the extent that the Products are to be manufactured in accordance with a Products Specification supplied by you, you shall indemnify us against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal and other professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by us arising out of or in connection with any claim made against us in connection with our use of the Products Specification. This clause 3.2 shall survive termination of the Contract.

3.3               We reserve the right to amend the Products Specification if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirement.

4.                   Delivery of Products

4.1               We shall deliver the Products to the location set out in the Order or such other location as we may agree with you (Delivery Location) at any time after we notify you that the Products are ready.

4.2               If we have agreed in writing that you will collect the Products from our premises or some other location, (Collection Location) you shall do so within 10 Business Days after we notify you that the Products are ready. In the event that you fail to collect the Products by then we may charge for storage of the Products until collection.

4.3               Delivery of the Products shall be completed on Products' arrival at the Delivery Location or, where we have agreed that you will collect the Products, on completion of loading of the Products at the Collection Location.

4.4               Any dates quoted for delivery of the Products are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence. We shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Products that is caused by a Force Majeure Event , a delay caused by delivery companies, or your failure to provide us with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Products.

4.5               The Products will be placed at the nearest safe point to the Delivery Location. This may be on the drive or kerbside. The delivery driver cannot help handle the Products, so unless we agree otherwise it is your responsibility to arrange for someone to be at the Delivery Location with suitable handling equipment when the Products are delivered. If you do not, we may not be able to deliver the Products to the Delivery Location and the Products may have to be returned to our premises, in which case you may have to pay our reasonable charges for storage and/or rearranged delivery. We accept no liability for any loss or damage caused to the Products or suffered by you as a result of your failure to ensure that someone is at the Delivery Location to receive the Products when they are delivered.

4.6               If we fail to deliver the Products, our liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by you in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Products.

4.7               We shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Products to the extent that such failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event, a failure caused by the delivery companies referred to in clause 4.4 or your failure to provide us with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Products.

4.8               If you fail to collect or accept delivery of the Products within 10 Business Days after we notify you that the Products are ready, then except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or by our failure to comply with our obligations under the Contract in respect of the Products:

(a)           delivery of the Products shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00 am on the 5th Business Day following the day on which we notified you that the Products were ready; and

(b)           we shall store the Products until delivery takes place, and charge you for all related costs and expenses (including insurance).

4.9               If you do not collect the Products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery we will contact you for further instructions and will charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 8.2 will apply.

4.10           We may deliver the Products by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.

4.11           We will contact you with an estimated delivery date. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by a Force Majeure Event. See clause 4.9 for our responsibilities when this happens.

4.12           Delivery of the Products in an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collects them from us and the Products will be your responsibility and at your risk from that time.

6.5               If before title to the Products passes to you, you become subject to any of the events listed in clause 12.1(c), or we reasonably believe that any such event is about to happen and notify you accordingly, then, provided that the Products have not been irrevocably incorporated into another product, and without limiting any other right or remedy we may have, we may at any time require you to deliver up the Products and, if you fail to do so promptly, enter any of your premises or of any third party where the Products are stored in order to recover them.

If any provision or part provision of the Contract is deemed deleted under this clause 15.3 the parties shall negotiate in good faith to agree a replacement provision that, to the greatest extent possible, achieves the commercial result of the original provision.

16.4           Waiver. A waiver of any right or remedy under the Contract or by law is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent right or remedy. A failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict any further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.

16.5           Third party rights. A person who is not a party to the Contract shall not have any rights to enforce its terms.

16.6           Variation. Except as set out in these Conditions, no variation of the Contract shall be effective unless it is agreed in writing and signed by us.

16.7           Governing law. The Contract and any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England.

16.8           Jurisdiction. Each party irrevocably agrees that the courts of England shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with the Contract or its subject matter or formation.
