4. Order Process and the Contract between you and us

4.1. When you place an order with us, the legal contract between you and us will only come into existence when we tell you that we can supply the services to you, which we will usually communicate by email. If we tell you that we cannot supply the services to you for whatever reason, then we will not charge you for them. If we tell you that we are unable to supply the services, and we have already received payment from you, then we will promptly refund you for any services that we cannot supply to you.

5. Changes to services

5.1. If you would like to make a change to the services for which you have already placed an order, please contact us as promptly as you can. We will always be willing to discuss with you whether the change you would like to make is possible, and whether there are likely to be any changes to price, times for delivery, any suspension period whilst any changes are made, or any other consequences or changes arising from your request. If your requested change is possible, we’ll ask you to confirm that you would like to continue with the change, to ensure that we’re both clear on how we need to fulfil your request.

5.2. In some circumstances, we may need to make minor changes to the services that you ordered. As these are minor changes and will not affect your use of the services we will not usually contact you about these. These minor changes are likely to be:

  1. because we need update the services to implement a change in the law, or a regulatory requirement; and/or

  2. because we need to make minor technical changes or enhancements that will not affect your use or enjoyment of the services.

5.3. It is possible that exceptionally, we may need to make a more major change to the services. If these exceptional circumstances arise in relation to an order that you have placed with us, then we will contact you before we make the change to let you know. If you do not want to proceed with the change, you’ll be entitled to cancel the contract and section 13.1 (cancellation terms) of these terms and conditions will apply.

 

5.4. The price of the services will be the price set out on our website at the time when you place your order. Our prices include VAT at the current rate.

5.5. We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that we do not make errors with the prices that we charge you. For example, before we accept your order, we usually try to check the website price against our price list in force at the time of your order. However, if an error has been made and the price in the price list is lower than the website price, then we will charge you the price on the price list (being the lower amount). If an error has been made and the price in the price list is higher than the website price, we will contact you to confirm how you would like to proceed (and if you want to cancel the contract, section 13.1 of these terms and conditions will apply).

5.6. Any costs for delivery of the services and other costs associated with the services will be the amounts that were set out in the order process on our website

5.7. We accept payment by EXPLAIN HOW YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT – FOR EXAMPLE CASH/CREDIT CARD/DEBIT CARD/CHEQUE.

The interest will accrue each day from the date that the amount you owe us was due, until the date you make payment of the amount that is overdue. It will accrue whether or not it is before or after any court judgment. You must pay the interest to us when you make payment to us of the amount that is overdue. If you write to us and request it, we will send you a statement of the interest you owe us to date, and the additional amount being added each day.

6. Supply of services

6.1. Before you place your order, on our order pages, we will let you know when we will supply the services to you. Supply times will depend on whether the services you have ordered are one-off or ongoing:

  1. For one-off services, we will begin supplying the services on the date we agreed with you when you placed your order and the approximate date for completion of the services will be the date we advised you when you placed your order;

However, if the delay continues beyond a reasonable amount of time, then you can contact us to cancel the contract, and we will provide you with a refund for any services that you have paid for but not yet received.

7. Suspension

7.1. If something happens that means we must suspend the supply of the services to you, for example:

  1. to make minor technical adjustments or to resolve technical issues;

  2. to update the services to implement a change in law or any relevant regulatory requirement,

then we will contact you to let you know.

If you do not allow us access to your property at the time and date arranged with you we will contact you for instructions about what to do next and we may charge you for the additional costs that we incur as a result of you not allowing us access.
