Application

1. The following terms and conditions, as varied from time to time by us, will govern all contracts we make for supply of goods and/or services unless otherwise specifically agreed by us in writing and shall prevail to the exclusion of any other terms that the buyer may seek to impose or incorporate or which are implied by trade custom, practice or course of dealing.
2.

In some part of these terms you will have different rights under these terms depending on whether you are a “business” or “consumer”. You are a consumer if:

  • You are an individual.
  • You are buying goods from us wholly or mainly for your personal use (not for use in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession).
3.1 Your "order" is your order as submitted via our e-commerce shop.
3.2 Your order constitutes an offer by you to purchase the goods in accordance with these terms and conditions.
3.3 You are responsible for ensuring that the details provided in your order are complete and accurate in all respects.
3.4 Your order shall only be deemed to be accepted when either (a) we send you a confirmation email accepting your order or (b) we despatch the goods, or any of them, to the location specified in your order
4. Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter or advertising produced by us and any descriptions or illustrations contained on our website or in catalogues or brochures are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the goods referred to in them. They shall not form part of the contract nor have any contractual force.
5. If you are a business customer, your order and these terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and us. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by us or on our behalf which is not set out in the order or these terms and conditions.

Delivery

6. We shall arrange for delivery of the goods to the location specified in your order. If any of the goods ordered are out of stock or require embroidery or printing, or if the delivery destination is outside mainland UK, you will be advised separately by email of the intended delivery date. Otherwise it is our aim to dispatch all orders the same day by overnight carrier provided we receive them by 2 p.m.
7.

For delivery anywhere within the UK mainland, orders valued at £100.00 (net) and over are carriage free and otherwise are liable to a small delivery charge of £6.95 plus VAT. Carriage on deliveries outside the UK mainland is chargeable at cost or by quotation.

Orders to be delivered by a specific time the next day will incur additional delivery charges as follows:

Next day before 10:30 am: £30.00
Next day by 12 noon: £15.00
Saturday delivery: £40.00

Click and Collect is available for orders valued at £150 (net) and over with no applicable fee.

8. For next day delivery within the UK mainland, please place your order by 2pm.
9. If we are delivering goods to you outside of the UK:
9.1 Your order may be subject to import duties and taxes. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes; and
9.2 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country to which the goods are being delivered. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such laws or regulations.
10. We will contact you with an estimated delivery date. We will always try to delivery promptly, but delivery dates are estimates only and are not legally binding or of the essence of the contract. The right is reserved to deliver by instalments and any failure to deliver one instalment shall not entitle the purchaser to cancel delivery of the remaining instalments.
11. We shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the goods that is caused by an event beyond our reasonable control or a failure by you to provide adequate instructions in relation to your order. If we fail to deliver the goods, our liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by you in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the goods. If you are a consumer, you may have additional legal rights for late or non-delivery.
12. We reserve the right to refuse to deliver the goods if we consider, in our entire discretion, that the premises, surrounding area or country to which delivery is due to be made is inaccessible, unsafe or unsuitable.
13. Delivery of the order shall be completed when we deliver the goods to the address you gave us. When delivery is complete, you will be responsible for the goods and the risk passes to you. If no one is available at this address to take delivery, we will deem delivery of the goods complete and, until delivery takes place, store the goods at your risk and charge you for all related costs and expenses (including insurance). If you fail to accept delivery of the goods within 30 days of the first attempted delivery, we reserve the right to resell or otherwise dispose of all or part of the goods without incurring liability to you.
14. Where it is desired that our delivery drivers assist in unloading operations (and agree to do so) this will only be undertaken on the understanding that the customer will assume full responsibility for our driver’s health and safety whilst this is being carried out.
15. If you are a business customer: The quantity of any consignment of goods as recorded by us on despatch to you shall be taken to be the quantity received unless you provide conclusive evidence to the contrary. If you think there are goods missing on delivery, you must notify us in writing within three days of delivery.

Retention of Title

16.1 Although the risk of damage to or loss of the goods will pass to you immediately upon delivery, the ownership of the goods shall not pass to you until we have received payment in full for them (including all applicable delivery charges) and until any other sums which are due from you to us have also been paid in full.
16.2 If you are a business customer: Until title to the goods has passed to you, you must hold them on a fiduciary basis as our bailee, store them separately from all other goods held by you so that they remain readily identifiable as our property, maintain them in satisfactory condition, keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery and not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the goods. You must notify us immediately if you become subject to any of the events listed in condition 19. You may resell or use the goods in the ordinary course of your business but if before title to them has passed to you, you become subject to any of the events listed in condition 19 or we reasonably believe that any such event is about to happen and notify you accordingly, your right to resell the goods or use them in the course of business will cease immediately and we may at any time require you to deliver up all the goods in your possession and, if you fail to do so promptly, enter any of your premises or the premises of any third party where the goods are stored in order to recover them.
16.3 Unless the contrary is proved it shall be assumed that you have sold or otherwise parted with possession of goods delivered by us in the same order as they were delivered, i.e. first in, first out.

Payment

17. Payment is due at the point of order and can be made either online or by BACS or by credit or debit card. Customers with an agreed credit account will have the price of their order debited to their credit account.

Credit Account Customers

18.1 We reserve the right to offer or refuse to offer a credit account to any business customer at our entire discretion. Credit account terms are not available to consumer customers.
18.2 We may, at our option, assess your eligibility for a credit account by contacting credit reference agencies, obtaining references or by any other means we see fit.
18.3 We may, at our discretion, impose a credit limit on any credit account. Such limit may be subject to variance, as we specify from time to time, and you shall not be permitted to exceed this limit. We reserve the right to alter and/or remove any credit limit or credit account without notice to you.
18.4 We may implement any such terms and conditions in connection with the credit account at any time as we see fit.
18.5 If you have a credit account, you must pay the price of any goods purchased (without set-off or deduction) within 30 days of invoice date or as otherwise agreed in writing by us.
18.6 Invoices and statements may be sent either by post, fax or electronically.
18.7 Returned or re-presented cheques will incur a charge of £25.00 per re-presentation.
18.8 We reserve the right to charge interest at the rate of 2% per calendar month (or part of a month) on all overdue sums, and such interest will remain payable after any court judgment. Additionally, you must reimburse us all costs and expenses (including legal costs) incurred in the collection of any overdue amount.
18.9 If you have a credit account and any person has given a guarantee for your liabilities to us, the guarantee will apply to all purchases made on our website and under these terms and conditions, as well as to offline purchases.
19. If you have a credit account and you (i) fail to make payment when due; or (ii) breach any provision of these terms and conditions; or (iii) become insolvent, have a receiver, administrative receiver, administrator or manager appointed over all or any part of your assets or business, make any composition or arrangement with your creditors or take or suffer any similar action in consequence of debt or if an order or resolution is made or passed for your dissolution or liquidation (other than for the purposes of solvent amalgamation or reconstruction), then we shall have the following options (without incurring any liability and without prejudice to any other rights we have under these terms and conditions):

a) To terminate our contract with you and your credit account with immediate effect;
b) To cancel any undelivered portion of the goods and to stop any goods in transit;
c) To cancel any other order or contract we have in place with you;
d) To demand immediate payment of any outstanding amounts which will thereupon become due and payable.

Return of Goods and Cancellation

20.1 If you are a business customer: Items correctly supplied against a binding order may not be returned for credit without our prior written agreement and you must notify us in writing within 10 days of delivery if you wish to return them. We reserve the right to levy a 20% handling charge (reduced to 7% if the return is processed via our website) and we will not re-credit or reimburse any delivery charges. Goods returned for credit must include the relevant invoice or order number before any credit note can be issued and any wrapping must be intact and unmarked.
20.2 If you are a business customer: Except as otherwise specified in these terms and conditions, we reserve the right to refuse to accept returned goods, and goods correctly supplied cannot be returned if they have been printed, embroidered or otherwise personalised for you or if they are not items we normally hold in stock. If the goods are defective and in breach of our warranty, Condition 21 will apply.
20.3 If you are a consumer: For most goods bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in the rest of this Condition 20.
20.4 Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
a) Goods which are bespoke to or customised for you, including items which are embroidered to your design or specification;
b) goods sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them.
20.5 You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods to change your mind. If the goods are delivered in several deliveries, you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) received the last delivery.

b) Email us at: customer.care@anchorsafety.co.uk

You must either return the goods in person to where you collected them from us (if using click & collect), post them back to us (at Anchor House, Chapel Lane,Great Blakenham, Ipswich IP6 0JZ), or if they are not suitable for posting allow us to collect them from you.

Please call customer services using the details above for a return label or to arrange collection. You must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.

20.8 Unless the goods are faulty, you must pay the cost of return. If we are collecting the goods, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
20.9 We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make the following deductions from the price:
a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.
20.10 Your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. If we have offered to collect the goods, we will refund you within 14 days of you telling us you have changed you mind.
