If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us on email@example.com to discuss.
In some areas you will have different rights under these terms depending on whether you are a business or a consumer. You are a consumer if you are an individual, you are buying Products from us wholly or mainly for your personal use (not for use in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession).
If you are a business customer these terms constitute the entire agreement between us in relation to your purchase.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing by a Director of the Provider, these terms prevail over any terms of business or purchase conditions (or similar) put forward by the business customer.
Subject to this Clause 3, no variation or alteration to these terms shall be valid unless the details of such variation are agreed between a Director of the Provider and the consumer or business customer and are set out in writing and a copy of the varied terms is given to the consumer and/or business customer stating the date on or after which such varied terms shall apply.
You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of us which is not set out in these terms and that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in this agreement.

5.2 If we are unable to accept your Order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the Goods are out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
5.3 We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your Order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your Order.
5.4 We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the UK.

8.13 We will not be responsible for supplying the Products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

10.3 If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about Goods, see Clause 14.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any Goods;

We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at the date of your Order, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product’s correct price at the date of your Order is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your Order.

- Our rights if you fail to provide an Adequate Sample
22.1 If you fail to follow the Instructions correctly, or for any other reason you do not provide an Adequate Sample we will not be held liable for our failure to provide you with a conclusive Result.
- Your rights if we fail to deliver a Result and/or Certificate prior to your Departure or Deadline
23.1 If your Order was received less than five days prior to your Departure, we will not have any liability or obligations to you.
23.2 We will refund you a sum equal to the total price of your Order but no more, if you make an Order at least five days prior to your departure and you returned to us or as directed by us, your Testing Kit four days prior to your Departure, we will not be held liable for any other costs that you incur due to a missed Departure or Deadline.
23.3 We will use our best endeavours to meet any Response Times, but the Response Times are guidelines only and we will not be held liable for any loss or damage that you suffer due to us delivering a Result or Certificate to you after a Response Time.
23.4 The rights set out in this clause are in addition to and not in substitution for your rights set out in clauses 7.2,10,14 and 20.
- Our Liability
Subject to the provisions set out in the relevant conditions, our total liability to you in respect of all losses arising under or in connection with your Order, whether in contract, negligence or otherwise, shall in no circumstance exceed the total cost of your Order.
- Other important terms
25.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
25.2 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
25.3 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
25.4 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
25.5 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a consumer. These terms are governed by Scottish law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in the Scottish courts.
25.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a business. If you are a business, any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a contract between us or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of Scotland and the courts of Scotland shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim.
