1.6.2 the Supplier delivering or performing the Deliverables or notifying the Customer that they are ready to be delivered or performed (as the case may be).
1.7 Rejection by the Supplier of an Order, including any communication that may accompany such rejection, shall not constitute a counter-offer capable of acceptance by the Customer.
1.8 The Supplier may issue quotations to the Customer from time to time. Quotations are invitations to treat only. They are not an offer to supply Deliverables and are incapable of being accepted by the Customer.
1.9 Marketing and other promotional material relating to the Deliverables are illustrative only and do not form part of the Contract.
2.1 The price for the Deliverables shall be as set out in the Order or, in default of such provision, shall be calculated in accordance with the Supplier’s scale of charges as advised by the Supplier and received and acknowledged by the Customer before the date the Order is made (Price). The Price is exclusive of VAT.
2.2 The Customer shall pay any applicable VAT to the Supplier on receipt of a valid VAT invoice.
2.3 The Supplier may increase the Prices at any time by giving the Customer not less than 15 Business Days’ notice in writing
2.4 Notwithstanding clause 2.3, the Supplier may increase the Prices with immediate effect by written notice to the Customer where there is an increase in the direct cost to the Supplier of supplying the relevant Deliverables which is due to any factor beyond the control of the Supplier.
3.1 The Supplier shall invoice the Customer for the Deliverables:
3.1.1 For physical goods (eg printing) once the Deliverables are ordered or delivered as appropriate at the discretion of the Supplier ;
3.1.2 For electronic goods or services (eg design), at such milestones are as agreed between the parties or otherwise when the Supplier considers it appropriate.

Where a completion form is signed by the Customer, the Deliverables shall be delivered in full. Any work carried out therefore must be pursuant to a new Order. Delivery of digital products shall be once placed on a server for the Customer’s approval and once approved the Supplier shall endeavour to make the digital work live within one working day.

Should the Supplier fail to deliver within the Guaranteed Period a service “credit” will be awarded up to the value of the order in question (redeemable against future orders within 6 months of issue of the Credit in question) (the “Credit”). The Customer will still be obliged to pay in full for the Order in respect of which delivery was late, including any of the sums charged specifically for the provision of the Guaranteed Turnaround Service (“the Premium Charges”). Where the late delivery is as the result of the action or inaction of a third party, such as a carrier, the Supplier, at their absolute discretion, may elect to extend the Turnaround by one Working Day and the customer shall not be awarded a Credit during this time. These services rely on the Customer not delaying the progress of the order in any way in the event of a Customer delay the Customer shall not be awarded a Credit and the Supplier shall not be bound to deliver within the Guaranteed Period.
6.1 Proofs of all work may be submitted for Customer’s approval and the Supplier shall incur no liability for any errors not corrected by the Customer in proofs so submitted. Additional charges shall be made for any additional proofs that are required as a result of alterations required by the Customer. When style, type or layout is left to the Supplier’s discretion, any subsequent changes to such style, type or layout required by the Customer shall be subject to additional charges on a time and materials basis.

9.7 The Supplier application may utilize a range of technologies including open source software and items supplied under license by third parties (“Third Party Content”).

The customer further acknowledges and agrees that provisions of such licences may be deemed incorporated into these terms and conditions.
9.8 The Customer acknowledges and agrees that whilst the Supplier will use its reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Supplier application is, otherwise than for maintenance (whether routine, planned or emergency) accessible at all times, it gives no warranty whatsoever that the Supplier application will be accessible either in whole or in part or otherwise “on line” for any period of time or that access will be uninterrupted or secure.
