3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing 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 a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, 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.

4. OUR PRODUCTS
4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the variety of products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images. Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, because our products are handmade, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website have a 2% tolerance. Some of our products are bespoke products.
4.2 Accurate measurements. If we are making the product to measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct.
5. YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see Clause 8- Your rights to end the contract).
6. OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
We may change the product to implement minor technical or other adjustments and/or improvements. These changes will not affect your use of the product. In an unlikely event of more significant changes to our products or these terms, we will first notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any products paid for but not received.
7. PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS

7.2 Delivery time.
(a) If the products are goods. If the products are goods we will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible. We will aim to deliver the product within the timeframe provided on our website (working days from the effective date of payment).
(b) If the products are one-off services. We will begin the services on the date set out in the order or on the date we accept your order or on the date agreed with you during the order process. The estimated completion date for the services is as told to you during the order process.
(c) If the products are ongoing services or a subscription to receive goods. We will supply the services and/or goods to you until either the services are completed or the subscription expires (if applicable) or you end the contract as described in Clause 8 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in Clause 10.
7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. 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. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
7.4 If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take the agreed delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery. You will be charged with the costs of the rearranged delivery.
7.5 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and Clause 10.2 will apply. We reserve our costs.
7.6 If you do not allow us access to provide services. If you do not allow us access to your property to perform the services as arranged (and you do not have a good reason for this) we may charge you additional costs incurred by us as a result. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange access to your property we may end the contract and Clause 10.2 will apply.
7.7 Late delivery of goods – your legal rights. You have legal rights if we deliver any goods late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any goods then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) We have refused to deliver the goods;
(b) Delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) You told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
7.8 New deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under Clause 7.8, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline. 7.9 Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under Clause 7.8 or Clause 7.9, you can cancel your order for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered late. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery. If the goods have been delivered to you, you must allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage. Please call customer services on +44 7728326771 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange collection.
7.10 When you become responsible for the goods. A product which is ‘goods’ will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us.
7.11 When you own goods. You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.
7.12 What will happen if you do not give required information to us? We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and Clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.13 Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to: (a) Deal with technical or other problems or make minor technical or other changes (Clause 6); (b) Update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; We will notify you of the suspension, unless in emergency or urgent cases.
7.14 Failure to pay – our right to suspend the supply of products. If you do not pay for the products when you are supposed to (see Clause 12.4) and you still do not make payment within 3days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not suspend the products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see Clause 12.6). As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see Clause 12.5).
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 what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
(a) If what you have bought is faulty or mis-described you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see Clause 11;
(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 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 there is no right to change your mind), see Clause 8.7. 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 and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) We have told you about an upcoming significant 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;
(d) You have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late (see Clause 7.8).
8.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
8.4 No right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
(a) the supply of goods and services for which the price is dependent on fluctuations in the financial market which cannot be controlled by the trader and which may occur within the cancellation period;
(b) the supply of goods that are made to the consumer’s specifications or are clearly personalised;
(c) the supply of goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;
(d) contracts where the consumer has specifically requested a visit from the trader for the purpose of carrying out urgent repairs or maintenance;
(e) any products which become mixed inseparably (according to their nature) with other items after delivery.
(f) services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running.
8.5 How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
(a) Have you bought services? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
(b) Have you bought goods? If so, you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
8.7 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 do not have a right to change your mind (see Clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) the compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract. In case of bespoke products, we may charge you the full price or its relevant percentage, depending on the circumstances.

9.6 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
(a) 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. 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. (b) Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind.

11. IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE PRODUCT
11.1 How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can telephone our customer service team or write to us, including via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
11.2 Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of collection. Please call customer services or email us to arrange collection.
12. PRICE AND PAYMENT
12.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see Clause
12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
12.2 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.
12.3 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.
12.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment in cash, bank transfers to our bank account: SORT CODE: 30-96-11; ACCOUNT NUMBER: 42962668; IBAN: GB67LOYD30961142962668; BIC: LOYDGB21154 and electronic payments through the service of PAYPAL See our “Form of payments” at our website https://mks-furniture.co.uk/payments-pm-19.html and at https://www.paypal. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying: (a) For goods, you generally must pay for the products before we dispatch them and within 3 calendar days from the date of the contract (see Clause 3.1), unless you pay by cash on delivery or collection.
(b) For digital content, you must pay for the products before you download them. (c) For services, we will invoice you periodically for the services until they are completed, unless the services are free of charge (e.g. your “Account”, “Contact form”, “Order form” or “Newsletter”). You must pay each invoice within 7 calendar days after the date of the invoice.
12.5 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
12.6 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date. 13. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
13.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is
not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
13.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at Clause 11.2 and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
13.3 When we are liable for damage to your property. If we are providing services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services.
13.4 If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
13.5 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
14. HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
15. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
15.1 Third party rights excluded. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of these terms.
15.2 Severability of terms. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
15.3 Deferred right to enforce. 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.
15.4 Choice of law and jurisdiction. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts.
15.5 Alternative dispute resolution. 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. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint you sent to us at email@example.com, you may want to contact the certified, relevant alternative dispute resolution provider (ADR provider), e.g. Furniture Ombudsman or Dispute Resolution Ombudsman. You can submit a complaint to an ADR provider via their website and we will not charge you for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
