4. CUSTOMER DELIVERABLES
4.1 The product range offered on the website may change from time to time and can be changed without any prior notice.
4.2 Natural materials often vary in colour and texture from piece to piece and over time, even when drawn from the same source. Samples, photographs, and display settings provide only an indication of aesthetic characteristics. They should not be relied upon as an exact representation of material which is will be supplied.
4.3 All products are manufactured from natural materials (Softwood or Hardwood). Where possible we source timbers that have a reduced number of knots and natural flaws. However we cannot guarantee that any products will be free from these natural flaws. For the avoidance of doubt customers need to be aware that softwoods, although able to be lacquered, are best suited to being painted for the optimum finish.
4.4 Where samples are supplied the customer is given a licence in respect of the sample strictly for the purposes of assessment of the sample. Customers are reminded that any copying of the designs or application of the designs reflected in the sample, for any purpose other than assessment of the sample, will be a breach of that licence. The customer agrees that in the event of breach the customer will compensate Us in full for any loss of business occasioned by that copying.
4.5 Certain goods advertised on this website may require you to provide certain deliverables to Us (such as image files of specific designs) which will be required by us in the manufacture of the goods ordered by you (“Customer Deliverables”). Wherever this is the case, full details of the Customer Deliverables and why they are required will be brought to your attention before you confirm your order in accordance with the order instructions.
4.6 In the event that you do not provide any Customer Deliverables in strict accordance with the requirements notified to you before placing your order, We will contact you and give you an opportunity to select one option from one or more of the following options:
(a) Proceed with your order using the Customer Deliverables provided by you.
If you select this option We will apply our standard manufacturing process using whatever you have provided to Us. You may be disappointed with the final product. The full purchase price will nevertheless be payable.
(b) Proceed with your order using the Customer Deliverables provided by you, as modified by Us.
If you select this option, Our in-house team will use their expertise to modify the Customer Deliverable provided by you in an attempt to make it more appropriate for its purpose, before applying our standard manufacturing process using that modified Customer Deliverable. If you select this option then the quality of the final product will ordinarily be better than if you select option (a), although We can give no guarantee. The full purchase price, plus a surcharge of £40 per man hour employed in the modification of the Customer Deliverable, will be payable.
(c) Resubmit the Customer Deliverables in accordance with our requirements.
If you select this option we will wait for you to resubmit the Customer Deliverables and apply our standard manufacturing process using whatever we receive from you. If your resubmitted Customer Deliverable does not comply with the requirements notified to you before you submitted your order, We will proceed in accordance with option (a) above.
(d) Cancel your Order.
If you select this option your order will be cancelled and We will refund any moneys paid by you, less a cancellation charge equal to 50% of the purchase price to compensate Us for administration charges and loss of profit.
(e) Order and wish to return goods
If goods are ordered and for any reason not required we will charge at least 50% re-stocking charge plus the cost of delivery and collection to return the goods. This fee is to cover packing, unpacking, administration, QC and restocking.
