(3) About us
Our full name is Bennett Workplace Solutions Limited. Our headquarters is at Burnden House, Viking Street, Bolton, BL3 2RR, whilst our registered office is at The Exchange, 5 Bank Street, Bury, BL9 0DN. Our company registration number is 8758488. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Our VAT number is GB 174 9288 62.
Prices for Products and Services are quoted on the Site. The Site contains a large number of Products and Services and it is always possible that some of them may be incorrectly priced. We will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that a correct price will be stated when you pay for the Product.
In addition to the price of the Products, you may have to pay a delivery charge, which will be as stated when you pay for the Product.
The prices on the Site exclude any UK value added or sales taxes (where applicable).
Prices for Products are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect Agreements which have come into force.
Payment in respect of a Product or Service must be made immediately at the time of your Order unless we agree otherwise. We may withhold the Products and Services and/or terminate this Agreement if the price is not received from you in full, on time, in cleared funds.
Payment for all Products must be made by credit or debit card (subject to the paragraph below).
We may from time to time in our absolute discretion set up a customer account which will enable a business customer to issue Orders, and we will invoice for the price in respect of each Order on or at any time after receipt of that Order, and you will pay any such invoices within 30 days following the date of the invoice. Customer accounts will be subject to credit limits which we may vary from time to time in our absolute discretion.
(6) Delivery of Products
We will arrange for the Products to be delivered to the address for delivery indicated in your Order.
We will use reasonable endeavours to deliver Products within 7 days of the date of our Second Acknowledgement. However, we cannot guarantee delivery by the relevant date, particularly where the relevant Product is not in stock. We do however guarantee that unless there are exceptional circumstances all deliveries of Products will be dispatched within 30 days of the later of receipt of payment and the date of our Second Acknowledgement.
We will only deliver Products in the UK and Ireland.
(7) Risk and Title
The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Products will only pass to you on the later of: (i) delivery of the Products and; (ii) our receipt of full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products (including delivery charges).
(8) Provision of Services
Where this Agreement relates to Services, we will contact you within 7 days of our Second Acknowledgement to arrange for the provision of those Services.
We will provide the Services at your business premises or home address in the UK or Ireland at a time or at times to be mutually agreed.
You have no right under this Agreement to specify which individual or individuals will provide the Services.
We have the right to cancel Services under this Agreement at any time (and refund to you any money paid in respect of Services) where in our reasonable opinion: (i) your premises or address at which you would like us to provide the Services is unsuitable for the provision of Services; (ii) the provision of the Services may lead to a risk to the health or wellbeing of the individual(s) who would provide those Services.
If you fail to receive Services at the pre-arranged place and time, you will lose your right to the provision of those Services (and will not be entitled to any refund in respect of those Services or released from any liability to make payment in relation to those Services).
If the Services have not been provided within a period of 12 months following the date of our Second Acknowledgement, and where (in our reasonable opinion) this failure arises primarily from your failure to be available to receive the Services on sufficient and suitable dates and times, you will automatically lose the right to receive the Services under this Agreement.
(9) Consumer rights
If you enter into this Agreement as a consumer, you may: (i) insofar as the Agreement relates to Products, cancel this Agreement at any time within 7 working days after the day you received the Products; and (ii) insofar as the Agreement relates to Services, cancel this Agreement at any time within 7 working days after the day you received the Second Acknowledgement (subject in each case to the limitations set out below).
You will not have any such right insofar as this Agreement relates to the supply of any Products which constitute audio or video recordings or computer software which have been unsealed by you. Nor will you be able to cancel this Agreement if it relates to the provision of Services and we have, with your agreement, begun the provision of those Services.
If you cancel this Agreement on this basis, you must inform us in writing and (where this Agreement relates to Products) return the Products to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them. Products returned by you within the 7 working day period referred to above will be refunded in full (including the cost of sending the Products to you). However, you will be responsible for paying the cost of returning the Product to us.
If you cancel this Agreement on this basis and you do not return to the Products to us, we may recover the Products and charge you for the costs we incur in doing so. Similarly, if you return the Products at our expense, we may pass that expense on to you.
(10) Defective Products
You may also cancel this Agreement if the Products supplied are defective.
Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full (including the cost of sending the Products to you, and the cost of returning the Products to us). Alternatively, if we and you agree, we may supply you with a replacement or substitute Product.
If you cancel this Agreement and are entitled to a refund, we will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 30 days of the day we received your notice of cancellation.
(12) Sale or return items
We do hope that you are completely satisfied with the goods we supply you.

In any case, you should contact our office on 033 33 441 456, quoting your original sales order, delivery note or invoice number and request a returns authorisation/collection note, which will be sent to you by email, and MUST be included in your return package. We do not refund the outward carriage charge nor do we pay for the cost of returning goods to us.
