2. Basis of Sale
These Terms and Conditions of Business and any Special Conditions contains all of the terms and conditions pursuant to which Seller will provide the Goods and any services. The parties expressly exclude any terms and conditions which the Buyer includes in any purchase order, confirmation of order or other document. Any variation of these Terms and Conditions of Business and the Special Conditions will only bind the Seller if agreed in Writing between authorised representatives of the Seller and the Buyer. The Seller's employees are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless confirmed by the Seller in Writing. In entering into any Contract and in accepting delivery, the Buyer acknowledges that it does not rely on representations concerning the Goods which are not confirmed in this way.
3. Orders and Specifications
All Goods are offered for sale subject to availability and subject to the Seller's acceptance of the Order. The Seller reserves the right to reject any Order without the obligation to assign any reason for so doing. No Order shall be deemed accepted by the Seller unless and until it is confirmed unconditionally by the Seller in the Order Confirmation. The Seller has a policy of continuous product development and reserves the right to amend the specifications of any of the Goods without prior notice. Goods supplied may therefore differ as a consequence of multi-standard color systems, notably the international screen based color system of RGB and the print color system used by ChipLab. The Seller endeavours to display and describe as accurately as possible the printed colors of the Goods which appear on its website, but cannot undertake to give any assurance that the colors of Goods supplied will exactly match those displayed on the Buyer's monitor.
4. Price, Payment and Currencies
The Buyer shall be responsible for all applicable taxes, including taxes applicable in the territory to which the Goods are sent. Payment must be made by credit card or debit card or by PayPal or by bank transfer at the time of placing an Order which is accepted by the Seller. Payment in full will be taken at this time and the Contract will be in force. The Buyer undertakes that all details provided to the Seller for the purpose of the Order and its delivery will be correct and that the chosen method of payment is the property of the Seller and that sufficient funds or credit facilities are available to cover the full cost of the Goods ordered. The Seller reserves the right to obtain validation of the Seller's credit card, debit card or PayPal details before accepting the Buyer's Order.
The place for delivery of the Goods will be as shown on the Order and the normal method of delivery (unless specifically agreed otherwise) shall be regular postage. The Seller will endeavour to process the Order and manufacture the Goods within the time period stated for each item. However, because manufacturing time varies by item of Goods, the Seller reserves the right to combine items into one shipping package or to ship items separately. Each package will be sent separately by regular post, unless otherwise stated in the Order Confirmation. Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are estimates only. Time for delivery will not be of the essence of the Contract and the Seller will not be liable for any loss or expenses sustained by the Buyer arising from any delay in the delivery of the Goods however caused. The Buyer must inspect the Goods on delivery and, in the case where Goods have been delivered by carrier, sign the required proof of delivery document or collection acceptance document. A signature on that document will constitute conclusive evidence against the Buyer of receipt of the quantity of Goods indicated on that document free from any apparent defect or damage. The Buyer may not reject the Goods or any part of them solely on the grounds of short delivery of an instalment. If the Goods are alleged to be damaged or defective on delivery, a description of the alleged damage or defect must be given in writing at the time of delivery and signed by or on behalf of the Buyer. The Seller reserves the right to make delivery of the Goods by instalments. If the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery will constitute a separate contract. The Buyer may not treat the Contract (as a whole) as repudiated if the Seller fails to deliver any one or more of the instalments or if the Buyer has a claim in respect of any one or more of the instalments. If the Buyer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods, the Seller shall be under no obligation to refund the Price. Goods may not be returned to the Seller except as provided in Section 7 below.
6. Risk and Property
Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods will pass to the Buyer upon delivery to our chosen carrier. Property in the Goods will not pass from the Seller until the Seller has received full payment of the Price and all other sums which are due, owing or payable by the Buyer to the Seller in respect of the Contract or any other Contract between the Seller and the Buyer.
7. Returns, Refunds and Rights of Cancellation
The Buyer shall have the right to cancel any Order for Goods only in the following circumstances: if the Seller has failed to deliver the Goods ordered within 28 days after the date of the Order; in the case of defective Goods at the earliest opportunity after the Buyer has discovered the fault or defect (provided that the Buyer shall be deemed to have inspected the Goods as soon as reasonably practicable after delivery and in no case longer than 14 days after receipt). Notice of the wish to cancel must be made by email to the email address of chiplab.com shown below. For the avoidance of doubt, save in respect of defect or defective goods, nothing in these Terms and Conditions of Business shall give to the Buyer rights of cancellation in regard to the Goods which, by their nature have been made to the Buyer's specifications or are clearly personalised. In the case of cancellation under Section 7(a) above, the Seller shall be responsible for all sums paid (including initial and re-delivery charges (if any)) in respect of the Goods in question. All items of Goods which are returned by the Buyer to the Seller must be returned in their original packaging (which the Buyer should retain for the purpose) and must be in an unused condition.
8. Limitation of Liability
The Seller will not be liable for short delivery or defective Goods unless a claim is notified to the Seller in writing in accordance with Section 7(a) or, where upon reasonable inspection of the Goods, the Buyer should have become aware of such defect. The notification must include the Order confirmation number, delivery note number and details of the claim. In the case of a valid claim, the Seller may, in its sole discretion, replace the Goods (or the part in question) or refund to the Buyer the Price (or an appropriate proportion of the Price). The Seller will have no further liability to the Buyer in respect of the matters referred to in this Section 8a. The Seller will not be liable in any way for loss, damage, costs or expenses (including loss of profit) arising directly or indirectly from any failure or delay in performing any obligation under this Contract by reason of any event or circumstance outside the reasonable control of the Seller, including (but not limited to), any strikes, industrial action, failure of power supplies or equipment, government action or Act of God. The liability of the Seller, its agents, employees, subcontractors and suppliers with respect to any and all claims arising out of the performance or non-performance of the Seller's obligations in connection with the use of the information provided under the Contract, or the rendition of services hereunder, whether based on warranty, contract, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, shall not exceed, in the aggregate, the net purchase price (excluding taxes and freight) for such products or services. In no event shall the liability include damages for loss of profits or revenue; increased cost of purchasing or providing materials, supplies or services; cost of replacement capital; claims of purchaser's customers; inventory or use charges; or incidental or consequential damages of any nature. This limitation of liability section shall prevail over any conflicting or inconsistent provision contained in any of the documents comprising this Contract. It is up to the Buyer to take precautions to ensure that whatever computer equipment and/or software selected for use is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses and other items of a destructive nature. In no event will the Seller be liable to the Buyer or any other party associated with the Buyer from any direct, indirect, special or other consequential damages for any use of the chiplab.com website, or any other hyper linked website, including without limitation, any lost profits, business interruption, loss of programs or other data on the Buyer's information handling system or otherwise, even if the Seller has been expressly advised of the possibility of such damages.
