3.7 Any images of Goods on Our website and in Our catalogues, brochures or flyers are for illustrative purposes only.

7.2 This guarantee is in addition to, and does not affect, your legal rights in relation to the Goods that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
8. PROVIDING SERVICES
8.1 We will supply the Services to you from the date agreed between Us in writing until the estimated completion date set out in the Order.
8.2 We will make every effort to complete the Services on time. However, there may be delays due to an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 12 for Our responsibilities when an Event Outside Our Control happens.
8.3 We will need certain information from you that is necessary for Us to provide the Services. We will contact you about this. If you do not, after being asked by Us, provide Us with this information, or you provide Us with incomplete or incorrect information, We may make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to cover any extra work that is required, or We may suspend the Services by giving you written notice. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance where you have not provided this information to Us after We have asked. If We suspend the Services under this clause 8.3, you do not have to pay for the Services while they are suspended, but this does not affect your obligation to pay any invoices We have already sent you.
8.4 We may have to suspend the Services if We have to deal with technical problems, or to make improvements agreed between you and Us in writing to the Services. We will contact you to let you know in advance where this occurs, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You do not have to pay for the Services while they are suspended under this clause 8.4 but this does not affect your obligation to pay for any invoices We have already sent you.
8.5 You are responsible for providing safe, lawful, unhindered and suitable access to the site where the Goods are to be installed and/or the Services provided. A clear working area must be provided with a flat and level surface. A suitable local power supply adjacent to any point of work for both the operation and installation of the Goods and for portable electrical tools must be provided and be within 2.0m of the installation site. Any installation will be conducted during Our ordinary hours of work. We may agree to install the Goods and/or provide the Services outside these hours but we reserve the right to increase the price to reflect any additional costs incurred although we will tell you about these costs in advance.
8.6 Items such as, but without limitation, household furniture, other goods, stock, appliances and personal items should be removed to allow access to all areas where work will be carried out. Carpets and floor coverings should be lifted and floorboards raised to allow access to all floor voids where required. All lamp shades should be removed and access made clear for all work on lighting circuits as required. Loft traps and under floor hatches should be opened, and safe, clear, well lit with the access free from obstruction.
8.7 If you fail to comply with the provisions of clauses 8.5 and 8.6, We shall take care of all these issues (where possible) as We work and shall reinstate all to the best of Our ability. However We can take no liability for any damage caused while in the process of these actions. Failure to provide the access as stated above will be interpreted as desire for Us to undertake such issues as We work.
8.8 If you do not pay Us for the Services when you are supposed to as set out in clause 10.4, We may suspend the Services with immediate effect until you have paid Us the outstanding amounts (except where you dispute an invoice under clause 10.6). We will contact you to tell you this. This does not affect Our right to charge you interest under clause 10.5.
9. IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE SERVICES
9.1 In the unlikely event that there is any defect with the Services:
(a) please contact Us and tell Us as soon as reasonably possible;
(b) please give Us a reasonable opportunity to repair or fix any defect; and
(c) We will use every effort to repair or fix the defect within 24 hours where the defect might affect vulnerable people living in your property (such as children or elderly or disabled persons) and within 7 days in all other circumstances.
You will not have to pay for Us to repair or fix a defect with the Services under this clause 9.1
9.2 As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Services not carried out with reasonable skill and care, or if the materials or Goods We use are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.
10. PRICE AND PAYMENT
10.1 The price of the Goods and the Services will be set out in Our quote sent to you before you place your Order. Our prices may change at any time, but price changes will not affect Orders that you have already placed.
10.2 These prices include VAT. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Order and the date of delivery or performance, We will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods and Services in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
10.3 Where We are providing Goods to you, We may require you to make payment for Goods in advance by credit or debit card.
10.4 Where We are providing Services to you, We may ask you to make an advance payment of 10% of the price of the Services. Your rights to a refund on cancellation are set out in clause 13. We will invoice you for the balance of the Services on or any time after We have performed the Services. Each invoice will quote the Order number. You must pay each invoice in cleared monies within 7 calendar days at the date of invoice by bank transfer to the account details set out on Our invoice.
10.5 If you do not make any payment due to Us by the due date for payment, We may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% a year above the base lending rate of HSBC Bank plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay Us interest together with any overdue amount.
10.6 However, if you dispute an invoice in good faith and contact Us to let Us know promptly after you have received an invoice that you dispute it, clause 10.5 will not apply for the period of the dispute.
11. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
11.1 If We fail to comply with these Terms, We are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of Our breach of the Terms or Our negligence, but We are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is an obvious consequence of Our breach or if it was contemplated by you and Us at the time we entered into this contract.
11.2 If We are installing the Goods and/or providing Services in your property, We will make good any damage to your property caused by Us in the course of installation or performance. However, We are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that We discover in the course of installation and/or performance by Us.
11.3 We only supply the Goods and Services for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Goods and Services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose, and We have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

13. YOUR RIGHTS TO CANCEL AND APPLICABLE REFUND
