1.2 These terms should be read in conjunction with the General Terms and Conditions which shall also apply.
1.3 Your order is an offer to buy from the Supplier. There will be no contract of any kind between you and the Supplier unless, and until, they actually dispatch the goods to you. At any point up until then, they may decline to supply the goods to you without giving any reason. At the moment that the goods are dispatched, a contract will be made between you and the Supplier, and you will be charged for the goods.
1.4 The Catalogue and Website is intended for non-commercial and domestic use only. Although the Supplier is willing to supply goods to commercial users, they reserve the right to refuse such orders or to require the user to purchase the goods on alternative terms and conditions of sale.
1.5 The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see clause 5 below).
1.6 Astra may change these terms of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales.
- Description and Price of the Goods
2.1 The description and specification of the goods you order will be as shown in the Suppliers' current catalogue (the "Catalogue") or on its website at www.astra247.com(the "Website") at the time you place your order. Although the Supplier takes every care to ensure that the description and specification of the goods is correct, slight variations in colour, dimensions etc, may occur and therefore, we cannot accept any responsibility for any variation in colour caused by the browser software or computer system used by you.
2.2 The goods are subject to availability. If on receipt of your order the goods you have ordered are not available in stock, the Supplier will inform you as soon as possible, and refund or recredit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit or debit card for the goods.
2.3 Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown in the Catalogue or shown on the Website are accurate at the time you place your order. If an error is found, the Supplier will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling your order. If you cancel, the Supplier will refund or recredit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit or debit card for the goods.
2.4 In addition to the price, you will be required to pay a delivery charge for the goods, as shown in the section of the Supplier’s catalogue or website about delivery.
- Price and Payment
3.1 The prices payable for the items that you order are clearly set out in the Catalogue or on the Website.
