      • part 2: the terms of sale ("Terms of Sale"). These set out the terms on which you may order the products available on the Website ("Products").

    • When certain words and phrases are used in these Terms and Conditions, they have specific meanings (these are known as "defined terms"). You can identify these defined terms because they start with capital letters (even if they are not at the start of a sentence). Where a defined term is used, it has the meaning given to it in the section of these Terms and Conditions where it was defined (you can find these meanings by looking at the sentence where the defined term is included in brackets and speech marks).
    • In these Terms and Conditions (and on the Website when referring to the entry into of these Terms and Conditions), when we refer to "we", "us" or "our", we mean the Company; and when we refer to "you" or "your" we mean the business on whose behalf you are acting.

PART 2: TERMS OF SALE

  1. Ordering Products
    • In order to submit an order for Products via the Website (an "Order") you must first register an Account and then follow the procedure set out on the Website to submit your Order. Our Order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your Order to us. You should check all of the information that you enter and correct any errors before submitting your Order, as once your Order is submitted, we will begin processing it immediately.
    • You may only place an Order if you have a current General Dental Council registration (“Registration”) and you represent and warrant, at the time of placing each Order, that you have such a Registration.

Your Order constitutes an offer to us. After you place an Order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received it ("Confirmation Email"), but please note that this does not mean that your Order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your Order takes place when we send an email to you that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation”). These Terms of Sale, the General Terms and the Order will become legally binding on you and us when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation and each Order shall incorporate the Terms of Sale and General Terms and shall be a new and separate Contract between you and us.

  • If we are unable to supply you with the Products for any reason (for example, because they are out of stock), we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your Order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as reasonably possible.
  • You will be able to access your current and past Orders in your Account as well as any relevant invoices. If you notice a discrepancy between an invoice in your Account and an invoice you have received please contact us using the details set out in clause 1
  1. Delivery
    • The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on the Website.
    • We will provide you with a delivery period during the Order process and will confirm such delivery period in the Confirmation Email.
    • Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK.
    • Delivery is complete once the Products have been unloaded at the address for delivery set out in your Order and the Products will be at your risk from that time.
    • You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including of all applicable delivery charges.
    • If we fail to deliver the Products, our liability is limited to the cost of you obtaining replacement products of a similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Products. However, we will not be liable to the extent that any failure to deliver was caused by an Event Outside Our Control, or because you failed to provide adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Products.
    • If you fail to take delivery within 10 business days after the day on which we notified you that the Products were ready for delivery, we may resell part of, or all the Products and after deducting any reasonable storage and selling costs, account to you for any excess over the price of the Products or charge you for any shortfall below the price of the Products.
  2. Payment
    • The prices for the Products and delivery are set out on the Website and are exclusive of VAT. VAT will apply at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your Order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect
    • The price of the Products does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your Order.

It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Products at the correct price or cancelling your Order. We will not process your Order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the Order process, we will treat the Order as cancelled and notify you in writing. If we mistakenly 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 cancel the Contract and refund you any sums you have paid.

You can only pay for Products using a debit card or credit card. We accept the following cards: VISA, MasterCard. Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. We will not charge your debit card or credit card until we dispatch your Products. If your payment is not authorised, your Order will not be fulfilled.

  1. Refunds
    • Where you are entitled to a refund under these Terms of Sale, we will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction. You will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
    • If, due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to fulfil your Order or any of the Products in a particular Order, we will refund the value of the Product(s) that we were unable to fulfil and, if the full Order is cancelled, any delivery charges.

You are only liable for any diminished value of the Products resulting from the unfair and/or unreasonable wear and tear of the Products other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products.
