3.2  If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.  If you have already made payment for the order this will be refunded within 14 days.

We reserve the right to use a different carrier to that requested without notifying you, but only if the alternative method is expected (as quoted to us) to take the same amount or less time to deliver. Otherwise we will contact you to seek approval for any changes to the delivery method.

If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

8. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT

8.1  You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on, whether there is anything wrong with the product it, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or business customer:

(a)  If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract or to get the product repaired or replaced, see Clause 11 if you are a consumer and Clause 12 if you are a business;

(b)  If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see Clause 8.2;

(c)  If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about the product, see Clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;

(d)  In all other cases (if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer exercising your right to change your mind), see Clause 8.4.

8.2  Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (d) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:

(a)  we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see Clause 6);

(b)  we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;

(c)  there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or

(d)  you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

8.3  Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer then for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days (starting the day after we have delivered the products to you, or to someone nominated by you or to the delivery address) and receive a refund.  You cannot change your mind in respect of any products that we make or adapt specifically for you (bespoke goods). 

8.4  Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has a right to change their mind (see Clause 8.1), you can still request to end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. This would apply for example where an order includes bespoke/customised modifications to one or multiple products. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered. If the product(s) are en-route with a carrier at the time of cancellation then we will require the items to be returned before providing any refund.


9. HOW TO END THE CONTRACT WITH US (INCLUDING IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER WHO HAS CHANGED THEIR MIND)

To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing either of the following:

Complete our online Contact Form, clearly requesting a return (or, if you have not yet received the product, a cancellation), listing the items you wish to return and the relevant order/invoice number(s) https://www.gimsonrobotics.co.uk/p/contact

OR 

Print off the form at the end of these terms and post it to us at the address on the form. Or (as an equivalent) write to us at the same address in your preferred format, including details of what you bought, when you ordered or received it, any order/invoice numbers, and your name and address.

9.2  If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us, unless we have confirmed otherwise in writing, including by email. You must post them back to us at Gimson Robotics Ltd, Unit 31 Filwood Green Business Park, 1 Filwood Park Lane, Bristol, BS4 1ET, United Kingdom. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract, or else your right to a statutory refund will lapse.

9.3  We will pay the costs of returning the product to us:

If the products are faulty or misdescribed;

OR 

If you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.

In all other circumstances (including where you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.

9.4  How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment (unless this same method is not possible in which case we will contact you to arrange the payment). However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.

9.5  When we may make deduction from refunds if you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind 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.  This means that the product must be returned to us in its original packaging and be complete with all parts and accessories that were delivered with the product and must not have been used in any way, either on its own or with our supporting App.  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. In addition to this, if you had chosen an express delivery method (with a ‘guaranteed’ delivery period) for your order we will deduct the delivery cost from the refund.

9.6  We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible but no later than 14 days after we have collected the products from you.

 

10. OUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT  

10.1  We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you.

10.2  You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situation set out in Clause 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.   


11. YOUR RIGHTS IN RESPECT OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER   

11.1  If you are a consumer we are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. This means that the products we sell must be of satisfactory quality and fit for their general purpose (to operate as specified).

For detailed information on your rights as a consumer please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.

11.2  If you reject any of our products on the basis that they are faulty you must arrange to return the product to us. Provided that the products have been used within their specified limits we will pay for the cost of the return.


12. YOUR RIGHTS IN RESPECT OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS 

12.1  If you are a business customer we warrant that on delivery and for a period of 18 months from the date of delivery (warranty period) any products which are goods shall meet with their description, be of satisfactory quality and fit for their general purpose.

12.2  Subject to Clause 12.3, if, within 18 months of receipt of the products:

(a)  you give us notice in writing within a reasonable time of discovery that a product does not comply with the warranty set out in Clause 12.1;

(b)  we are given a reasonable opportunity of examining such product; and

(c)  you allow us to collect the product at our cost,

we shall, at our option, replace the defective product, or refund the price of the defective product in full.

12.3  We will not be liable for a product’s failure to comply with the warranty in Clause 12.1 in any of the following events:

(a)  you make any further use of such product after giving a notice in accordance with Clause 12.2(a);

(b)  the defect arises because you failed to follow our oral or written instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the product or (if there are none) good trade practice;

(c)  the defect arises as a result of something that you have done;

(d)  you alter the product without our written consent; or

(e)  the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions.

(f)  the goods or supplied products are made-to-order (‘bespoke’ or ‘custom’) and the failure is due to an unforeseen property of components used. The longevity of bespoke supplies cannot be assured without long term testing and so unless otherwise assured in the invoice the warranty period does not cover such product supplies.

12.4  Except as provided in this Clause 12, we shall have no liability to you in respect of a product’s failure to comply with the warranty set out in Clause 12.1.

12.5  The terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded.

12.6  These terms shall apply to any repaired or replacement products supplied by us under Clause 12.2.

 

13. PRICE AND PAYMENT  

13.1  The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order/checkout pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see Clause 13.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.

13.2  Each order confirmation email may serve as a VAT invoice where VAT has been charged. Please contact us if you would like a copy of your VAT invoice to be sent to you in PDF format.

13.3  We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

13.4  What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.

13.5  When you must pay and how you must pay.  All products must be paid in full at the time that you submit your order.  Payment can be made by debit or credit card, by PayPal, or by Bank Transfer. All card payments are either handled by Stripe (our default payment processing agent) or by PayPal.  Use of either payment processing agent will be subject to their terms and conditions.  At no point do we manually process or save payment cards, these details are communicated to the payment processing agents via a secure encrypted connection.

 17.5  Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

17.6  These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts.

17.7  Alternative dispute resolution if you are a consumer. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court.
