Please consult SND’s Terms and Conditions of Sale prior to placing an order.
Please ensure that you retain a hard copy of your sales invoice for future reference.
The terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by SND hereon referred to as the ‘Supplier’.
No contract exists between you and the Supplier for the sale of any goods until the Supplier has received and accepted your order and the Supplier has received payment in full .
The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see below).
The description of the goods you order will be as shown on the Supplier’s website at the time you place your order.
We list all of our products as accurately as possible, but with so many different products and manufacturers subtly upgrading their products throughout the year, there may be a few occasions when what you receive is not 100% as described (but the difference will always be minimal and beyond our control). On such occasions where you are unhappy with your item you have received, we will always accept the return of the goods, refund your payment in full and update the listing accordingly.
The dimensions we quote are based on the information provided to us by the manufacturers but on rare occasions these can be inaccurate (particularly if the fitting has been remodelled) and so we recommend that you do not cut holes etc until you are in receipt of the lights and have physically checked the dimensions. Please note that we do not accept any costs related to failure to install
If you require any additional information before ordering to confirm suitability please contact the Supplier in advance.
All goods are subject to availability. If the Supplier anticipates an unreasonable delay with the delivery of your order then the Supplier will contact you as soon as possible to offer a refund for any sum that has been paid by you for the goods.
Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on the Supplier’s website are accurate at the time you place your order. If an error is found, we will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling your order. If the Supplier does not receive a response within 5 days of informing you of the error, the order will be cancelled automatically. If you cancel for this reason, the Supplier will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you.
Payment, inclusive of delivery charges, must be made in full before an order can be released for delivery.
Payments shall be made by you without any deduction unless agreed in advance by the Supplier to you and processed via a valid discount voucher.
