INTRODUCTION
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before using this website.
By ticking the ‘I accept’ box you agree to be legally bound by these Terms and Conditions.

GENERAL
In these conditions:
“Seller” means John Strand MK Ltd.
“Buyer” means the person, firm or company who places an order with the Seller for the manufacture and/or supply of any goods.

BUYING ONLINE
When the Buyer places an order on the website by selecting a product or service and following the instructions the Buyer is entering into a contract with the Seller.

The Buyer will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in the order up until the Buy clicks on the ‘Place order’ button.

After the Buyer has submitted the order the Buyer will receive a payment receipt as an email from the Seller. (Please note that this is an acknowledgment and not an acceptance of the Buyer’s order).

Acceptance of the Buyer’s order and the creation of a legally binding contract between the Seller and the Buyer will only occur when the Seller sends the Buyer a second email which contains details of how the Buyer’s products will be delivered. This shall be referred to as the confirmation email.

The Seller reserves the right to decline all or part of any order for whatsoever reason and should this occur the Seller will contact the buyer with these details.

It is recommended that the Buyer retain all emails relating to the order and contract. The details of the Buyer’s specific contract are kept on file by the Seller.

PRICING
The price the Buyer pays for the order is the price which is displayed on the website. Delivery charges are calculated as part of the checkout process based on delivery postcode and the size of the order. The Seller reserves the right to change any services, product prices, product specifications and availability at any time.

The Seller will take payment from the Buyer’s card once payment details have been entered and the ‘Place order’ button has been clicked, subject to card authorisation. In the event that the Seller declines the Buyer’s order, the Seller will give the buyer a full refund if payment has already been taken payment for the products or services.

Deposit payments are non-refundable.

AVAILABILITY & DELIVERY
Time of delivery will not be the essence of the contract. The period quoted for delivery commences on the date the email confirmation is received by the Buyer and is an estimate. While the Seller will use all reasonable commercial endeavours to deliver the goods by the date specified, the Seller will not be liable in any way for unforeseen delays.
