Terms & Conditions

These terms and conditions (the “conditions”) form the basis of all contracts between you and us, Waistiecoat Ltd (Company Number 11264609) and Registered Office 130 Old Street, London EC1V 9EB.

All contracts shall be on these conditions to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (including any terms or conditions which you purport to apply under any purchase order, confirmation of order, specification or other document). Any variation to the conditions, and any representations about the goods and/or services, shall have no effect and shall not form part of the contract unless expressly agreed in writing and signed by one of our authorised officers.

You acknowledge that you have not relied on any written or oral statement, promise or representation made or given by, or on behalf of, us which is not set out in the contract.

Each order for goods and/or services by you from us shall be deemed to be an offer by you to buy the goods and/or services subject to the conditions.

We will send you a written acknowledgement of your order when it is accepted by us.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your order and all information provided to us is complete and accurate.

DESCRIPTIONS

All swatches, samples, descriptions, drawings, specifications, illustrations and advertising we provide, issue, or contained in our website, brochures, catalogues or other materials, are approximations only and should not be relied on by you as precise or construed literally.  We are unable to guarantee that product images you see on this website are completely accurate representations of the products as the display of images will depend on your viewing device and its colour capabilities. Whilst we will endeavour to match particular colours, this is not always possible. As a result these do not form part of the contract. This is not a sale by sample.

As fabrics can differ you accept that a swatch provided earlier may not come from the same batch or roll of fabric used for the goods.  As a result, there may be slight differences with the fabric of the goods and any swatch provided.  The risk of differences inevitably increases the longer the time between obtaining a swatch and ordering goods.

We reserve the right to change any descriptions, drawings, specifications, illustrations, brochures, catalogues, advertising materials and any other materials provided at any time without notice.

If any material, fabric or goods are out of stock, we will inform you at the earliest opportunity and allow you to await a new delivery, amend the order or cancel the order.

DELIVERY

Unless otherwise agreed in writing we will deliver the goods to the address provided by you.

We will endeavour to deliver the goods and/or perform the services within a reasonable period of time. However, many of the goods and/or services we provide involve hand-making products, and, as a result, any date specified by us for delivery of the goods and/or performance of the services can only be an estimate and it is hereby expressly agreed that time for delivery of the goods and/or performance of the services under any contract shall not be of the essence.  In the event of any significant delay we will keep you informed of the delay.

In view of the nature of the goods and services we provide and subject to the other provisions of the conditions, we shall not be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss (all three of which terms include, without limitation, pure economic loss, loss of profits, loss of business, loss of opportunity, depletion of goodwill and any similar loss) costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the goods or the performance of the services (even if caused by our negligence), nor shall any such delay entitle you to repudiate or terminate the contract unless such delay exceeds 60 days and only in such a case where the delay is wholly and completely our fault.

Our liability for non-delivery of the goods shall be limited to, at our option, repairing or replacing the goods within a reasonable time or providing a refund of sums paid at the pro rata contract rate against any invoice raised for such goods.

If, for any reason, you do not accept delivery of any of the goods when delivery is attempted, or we are unable to deliver the goods on time, for example, because you have not provided appropriate instructions, including a correct address; the goods will be deemed to have been delivered; we may store the goods until actual delivery, and charge you for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, the costs of the failed delivery, storage and insurance costs) and risk in the goods shall pass to you (including for loss or damage caused by our negligence).

If your order is to be delivered outside the European Union you may be charged import duties and other local taxes.  It is your responsibility to pay any such import duties and local taxes.

RISK & TITLE

The risk and title in the goods shall pass to you on delivery.

PRICE

Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, the price shall be in pounds sterling and inclusive of VAT and any costs or charges in relation to packaging, carriage and insurance.

In addition to the price, the Customer shall pay for any additional; work carried out by us, at your request, which we were not originally contracted to undertake.

Any additional costs payable by you will be invoiced by us and charged at rates (together with a percentage in respect of overheads and profit) based on the cost of materials, labour, sub-contractors, transport, taxes and duties at the time the work is carried out.

PAYMENT

Unless the quotation or order acknowledgement provides otherwise the price is due upon placing the order.

Where you are to pay by credit or debit card and provide details accordingly, we will charge your credit or debit card in accordance with the above.

Time for payment shall be of the essence and no payment shall be deemed to have been received until we have received cleared funds.

If any amount due from you is not paid in accordance with the conditions then we may do all or any of the following; suspend or cancel delivery of the goods and/or performance of the services under the contract, and any other contract, until you pay the outstanding amount(s) in full; treat any or all contracts as repudiated by you; and/or charge you interest on the outstanding amount the due date for payment at the annual rate of 3% above the base lending rate from time to time of Barclays Bank, accruing on a daily basis until payment is made, whether before or after any judgement.
