3.         OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU  

3.1       How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

3.2       If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this 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 your payment method is not accepted by our payment services provider, 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.

3.3       Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

3.4       We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the UK.

3.5       We only sell to over 18s. We only accept orders from persons who are 18 years of age or older.

 

4.         OUR PRODUCTS  

4.1       Products may vary. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only.  Your product may vary slightly from those images. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.  Any logo or other reference to a TV channel or on-demand service on the product page or on product packaging is an example only of what may be available at the time that the product page or packaging was created.  It does not guarantee the availability of such TV channel or on-demand services content via the Freesat service for any period of time.

 

5.         OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES  

5.1       Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:

(a)        to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and

(b)        to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. These changes will not affect your use of the product.

 

6.         PRICE AND PAYMENT  

6.1       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 take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct.

6.2       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. 

6.3       When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment via VISA, Mastercard and American Express. Payment for the products will be taken when we confirm your order and before we dispatch the products.

6.4       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.

 

7.         PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS

7.2       When we will provide the products. We will deliver the products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within seven days after the day on which we accept your order.

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. You can contact us by telephoning our customer service team on 0345 313 0051 or by writing to us at customerteam@freesat.co.uk

7.5       If you do not re-arrange delivery. If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for 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 will apply.

7.6       When you become responsible for the goods. A product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you collect it from a delivery depot.

11.       OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU  

11.1      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.

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 (including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care and, where installed by us, correctly installed); and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

13.       OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS  

13.1      We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.

13.3      Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

13.4      If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. 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. 

13.5      Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. 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.

13.6      Amendments to these terms. We may amend these terms from time to time and so you should review these terms prior to each order you make.

13.7      Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings.
