Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by the Seller (WTL plc) no goods or services shall be supplied by the Seller to the Buyer except in accordance with these conditions, which supersede any earlier sets of conditions appearing in the Seller’s catalogues or elsewhere. The conditions shall constitute the entire terms and conditions of the contract between the Buyer and the Seller and, in the event of any conflict, these conditions stipulated incorporated or referred to by the Buyer whether in the order or in any negotiations or otherwise.

2. The seller’s employees or agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning the goods or services unless confirmed by the seller in writing.

Any advice or recommendation given by the seller or its employees or agents to the buyer or its employees or agents as to the storage, application or use of the goods or services which is not confirmed in writing by the seller is followed or acted upon entirely at the buyer’s own risk, and accordingly the seller shall not be liable for any such advice or recommendation which is not so confirmed.

3. Prices quoted by the Seller to the Buyer will be valid for seven days from the date of the quote, or as otherwise specified on the quote. WTL Plc reserves the right to increase prices, packaging and specifications without prior notification.

If notwithstanding the Seller’s best endeavours the Seller fails to despatch or deliver the goods or services by such time or date, such failure shall not constitute a breach of the contract and the Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer to make good any damage or loss whatsoever whether arising directly or indirectly out of any delay in delivery. In the event that for any reason the Seller is unable to supply any goods or services on or at the time or date named for delivery, such time or date shall be postponed for a reasonable time.

5. Where the goods or services are to be delivered in instalments each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Seller to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these conditions or any claim by the Buyer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Buyer to treat the contract as a whole as repudiated.

If the Seller is found to be liable or admits liability the liability should be limited to the value of the invoice to which the claim relates.
