General

These Terms and Conditions shall apply to sales of Goods by the Seller to the Buyer to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions referred to, offered or relied on by the Buyer whether in negotiation or at any stage in the dealings between the parties, including any standard or printed terms tendered by the Buyer, unless the Buyer specifically states in writing, separately from such terms, that it wishes such terms to apply and this has been acknowledged by the Seller in writing.
Any variation to these Terms and Conditions (including any special terms and conditions agreed between the parties) shall be inapplicable unless agreed in writing by the Seller.
Acceptance of deliveries of the Goods shall constitute acceptance by the Buyer of these Conditions.
The Seller shall not be obliged to accept any Orders placed by the Buyer and shall be under no legal obligation to fulfil any Order until such Order has been accepted by the Seller and a contract has been established (see Order Acceptance below).
The Seller reserves the right to amend these Conditions from time to time without notice by updating the same on its website www.autopresseducation.co.uk

Order Acceptance

When confirmation of the Buyer’s order is received, this is to indicate that the Seller have received the order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between The Buyer and the Seller. The Seller will indicate acceptance of the Buyer’s order, and hence a contract will be established, when the Seller despatches the goods ordered (in the case of customers with a credit account), or when the Seller receives payment for goods in advance of despatch (in the case of customers without a credit account).
The Buyer agrees that proof of delivery supplied by The Seller’s delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.
The Seller will notify the Buyer at time of ordering if any items are out of stock and the Buyer will confirm whether they wish to put the relevant items on back order, or cancel the relevant items from their order.

Alterations

The Seller expressly reserves the right to alter its prices, product specifications and these terms and conditions at any time without notice. For the avoidance of doubt, no such change shall affect the order once it has been accepted by the Buyer. The Seller will endeavour to contact the buyer if their order is affected by any significant changes on the part of the Seller.

Prices and Payment

Current prices of the ‘Goods’ are listed on our website. Any special pricing or discount needs to be agreed in writing between the parties. Prices are exclusive of VAT which will be added at the applicable rate at the time of invoice. VAT will not apply to Customers outside the European Community. For VAT registered Customers who are outside the UK but within the European Community, VAT will not be charged for those Customers who supply The Seller with their VAT Registration Number.
Credit terms may be offered at the sole discretion of the Seller.
Where credit is offered payment of the price and VAT and any other applicable costs shall be due within 60 days of the despatch of the Goods by the Seller, unless otherwise agreed in writing. In cases where credit is not offered payment will be required before release of goods by the Seller.
The Seller shall be entitled to charge interest on overdue invoices from the date when payment becomes due from day to day until the date of payment at a rate of 4 per cent per annum above the base lending rate of the Bank of England.

Risk and Title

Risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer when the goods are delivered to, or collected by, the Buyer or its agent.
Ownership of the Goods will remain with The Seller until payment has been received in full, for all debts owing by The Buyer.
The Buyer will ensure that the Goods are securely stored, protected from damage and insured. Until such time as payment is made, The Buyer will hold all Goods supplied as agent for The Seller.
Where payment for the Goods remains outstanding beyond the due date, The Seller shall have the right to enter upon any premises of The Buyer where the Goods may be found, for the purpose of recovering possession of the Goods. The Buyer agrees to pay The Seller all costs of repossession.

Limitation of Liability

The Seller shall not be liable for any all loss or damage suffered by the Buyer in excess of the contract price.
Nothing contained in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed so as to limit or exclude the liability of the Seller for death or personal injury as a result of the Seller's negligence or that of its employees or agents.

Delivery

The Seller will use its best endeavours to despatch Goods within 10 working days of receiving an order from the Buyer. The seller does not despatch goods to schools during school holidays unless specifically requested to do so and where special arrangements are made to ensure successful delivery.  The Company shall not be liable for any loss whatsoever suffered or caused through late delivery or non-delivery.
Deliveries to all U.K. Mainland addresses will be carriage free, for orders over £100 (excluding VAT). A packing and delivery charge of £4.95 plus VAT will be applied to all orders under £100 (excluding VAT). Deliveries to addresses in Southern & Northern Ireland will be charged at £11.95 plus VAT for orders under £100 (exc VAT), and £6.95 (plus VAT) for orders over £100 (exc VAT). Occasionally an additional surcharge may arise from excess weight or size. This  will be quoted on an individual basis and the Seller will seek the approval of such charges from the Buyer before processing the order.
Delivery charges are subject to change without notice (but will always be indicated on the Delivery Information page at www.autopresseducation.co.uk).

Delivery Discrepancies and Damages

The Customer must make notification of short or over deliveries to The Seller, within 7 working days of receipt of Goods. The Seller is not obliged to issue credits for any claims of short deliveries or accept returns of over deliveries which are notified to The Seller outside this period. All damages must be reported within 3 days of receipt.

Returns

The Buyer shall have the right to return the Goods (in the original packaging) to The Seller for any reason whatsoever at any time up to fourteen (14) days from receipt of the Goods. The Buyer must contact the Seller by email or telephone to arrange a return. Goods returned without the authorisation of the Seller will not be credited.  The Seller reserves the right to charge the Buyer its reasonable costs and expenses incurred as a result of the Buyer exercising this right and also for any damage to, or use of, the Goods in the event that the Goods are damaged or have been used. Credit of amounts due or paid in will only be given for goods that are in saleable condition.
The Buyer must take reasonable care of the Goods whilst they are in the Buyer's possession and must take reasonable steps to protect the Goods from damage whilst in transit. In all events the Buyer will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to The Seller.
If the Buyer fails to comply with this Condition, The Seller may, at its discretion, refuse to issue a credit or reduce the value of the credit.
Provided returned Goods comply with the conditions set out  above The Seller shall issue a credit for the price paid for the Goods, excluding the original cost of delivering the Goods, within thirty (30) days from the date the Goods are received by The Seller.
