1. About Us
1.1 The website www.quirkart.co.uk (the "Site") is operated by Quirkart Ltd, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 08306150 and with its registered office (and main trading address) at Quirkart, 11 Seward Rise, Romsey, Hampshire, SO51 8PE (the "Seller").
1.2 The Site is only intended for use by buyers purchasing goods in the course of its business. The Seller does not accept orders from consumers.
2. Application of Conditions
2.1 All Goods listed on the Site are sold by the Seller to the Buyer upon these Conditions which shall prevail to the exclusion of any other terms which the Buyer seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.
2.2 The Seller may make revisions to these Conditions from time to time. If there are revisions, the Seller will publish them on the Site and highlight, on the home page, that revisions have been made. The Buyer shall regularly check the Site for details of any revisions having been published. The Site will identify the date on which the revisions will become effective and such revisions shall apply to all Orders which are issued on or after that date.
2.3 The Buyer should click on the tick box marked 'I agree to terms and conditions' if the Buyer accepts them. If the Buyer refuses to accept these Conditions, however, the Buyer will not be able to order any Goods from the Site.
3. How the Contract is Formed between the Seller and the Buyer
3.1 The Order constitutes an offer by the Buyer to purchase the Goods in accordance with these Conditions. The Buyer is responsible for ensuring that the terms of the Order and any applicable Specification (defined below) submitted by the Buyer are complete and accurate.
3.2 The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when the Seller issues a written acceptance of the Order by issuing an Order Confirmation, defined below, (having received full payment in cleared funds for the Goods which are the subject of the Order, unless credit terms have been agreed by the Seller and confirmed in writing to the Buyer) at which point the Contract shall come into existence.
3.3 After placing an Order, the Buyer will receive an e-mail from the Seller acknowledging that the Seller has received the Order. This does not mean that the Order has been accepted. The Order constitutes an offer to the Seller to purchase the Goods. All Orders are subject to acceptance by the Seller, whether or not the Order is placed on the Site or via telephone order line, and the Seller will only confirm such acceptance to the Buyer by sending the Buyer an order confirmation by e-mail that confirms that the Order is being processed (the "Order Confirmation"). For the avoidance of doubt, the Contract will only be formed when the Seller sends the Buyer the Order Confirmation.
3.4 The Contract will relate only to those Goods set out in the Order Confirmation. The Seller will not be obliged to supply any other goods which may have been part of the Buyer's order until the order of such goods has been confirmed in a separate Order Confirmation.
3.5 Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter, or advertising produced by the Seller and any descriptions or illustrations contained in the Seller's catalogues or brochures are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the goods described in them and any measurements that are described as 'to fit' are for guidance only. They shall not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force.
3.6 The Buyer is responsible for ensuring that the terms of its Order and any applicable specification for the Goods that are submitted to the Seller, including any related drawings, that are agreed by the Buyer and the Seller in writing (the "Specification"), are complete and accurate.
3.7 The Buyer warrants that the Seller's compliance with the Specification shall not breach any third party's intellectual property rights and, to the extent that the Goods are to be manufactured in accordance with the Specification, the Buyer shall indemnify the Seller against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal and other reasonable professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by the Seller in connection with any claim made against the Seller for actual or alleged infringement of a third party's intellectual property rights arising out of or in connection with the Seller's use of the Specification. This condition 3.7 shall survive termination of the Contract.
3.6 The Seller reserves the right to amend the Specification if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements or for the ongoing improvement of the Goods, in its absolute discretion.
4.1 Subject to condition 4.3, the prices payable for the Goods shall be those in the Seller's price list current when the Order Confirmation is sent, except in cases of manifest error.
4.2 At the Seller’s absolute discretion, any samples of Goods produced (whether experimental or otherwise at the Buyer’s request) by or on behalf of the Seller for or in connection with the Contract will be chargeable (and the price therefore will be agreed with you in advance) and non-returnable. Any such work undertaken to produce such Goods will be the subject of a separate Contract entered into pursuant to these Conditions. The Seller will only produce samples where the Buyer indicates that it will place an Order for a minimum quantity of Goods as agreed with the Seller.
4.3 At the Seller's absolute discretion, a surcharge of 5% per garment may be made on Orders where size XL or bigger only is required.
4.4 Orders placed for Goods via the Site totalling £200 or more (excluding delivery costs) or other than via the Site (ie via telephone order line) totalling £200 or more (excluding delivery costs) that are to be delivered to U.K. mainland locations and that are to be dispatched by the Seller's normal next day carrier service will qualify for free delivery if, when the Order Confirmation is sent (or as the case may be any quotation is accepted (see condition 4.10 below)) the Goods are in stock. All other Orders are subject to delivery costs as specified on the Order Confirmation. Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, the Seller shall be at liberty to revise (whether upward or downward), replace or withdraw the qualification for free delivery at any time prior to issue of an Order Confirmation.
4.5 Goods dispatched by special delivery of whatever kind at the Buyer's request are subject to a carriage surcharge as specified on the Order Confirmation which will be dependent on the shipping method and delivery address.
4.6 VAT at the prevailing rate shall be added to the price of the Goods and be payable by the Buyer where applicable.
4.7 The Seller reserves the right to revise prices and delivery charges at any time but changes will not affect Orders in respect of which the Seller has sent an Order Confirmation (or as the case may be, a quotation) to the Buyer.
4.8 The Site and the Seller's catalogues and/or brochures each contain a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite the Seller's best efforts, some of the products listed on the Site and in the Seller's catalogues and/or brochures may be incorrectly priced. The Seller will normally verify prices as part of its dispatch procedures so that, where the correct price is less than the stated price, the Seller will charge the lower amount when dispatching the goods to the Buyer. If the correct price for the goods is higher than the price stated on the Site and/or in the Seller's catalogues and/or brochures, the Seller will, at its discretion, either contact the Buyer for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject the Order and notify the Buyer of such rejection.
4.9 The Seller is under no obligation to provide the Goods to the Buyer at the incorrect (lower) price, even after the Seller has sent the Buyer an Order Confirmation, in such circumstances, the Seller may (notwithstanding the provisions of condition 4.8) cancel an Order at any time prior to delivery upon notice to the Buyer whereupon a refund of any monies paid for the relevant Goods will be made as soon as reasonably practicable.
4.10 Where the Seller has provided the Buyer with a quotation for the goods, this shall not constitute an offer. A quotation shall only be valid for the period of time expressly stated on the quotation. Any verbal quotation is an estimate only and will not be binding unless and until confirmed by the Seller in writing.
