The dimensional tolerances for Goods which the Company can achieve (outside the recommended industry machining tolerance of +/- 0.5mm) will depend on the material specified in the Goods Specification.

7.7 Where specific tolerances are required by the Customer the Company will, prior to manufacture and subject to the materials for manufacture being included in the Goods Specification, enter into tests (at the Customer’s expense) and, based on the results of those tests, will agree feasible tolerances with the Customer. The Company will endeavour to achieve such tolerances.

Notwithstanding any assistance which may be provided by the Company’s employees or agents, the Customer shall be solely responsible for unloading the Goods at the Delivery Location, or, in the event that it is agreed that the Customer shall collect the Goods from the Delivery Location, for loading the Goods.
8.2 The Company will endeavour to comply with any delivery date proposed or confirmed by it but any such dates shall be estimates only, time shall not be of the essence and the Company shall not be liable for any loss, damage or expense arising from any delay or failure in delivery or performance from any cause whatsoever nor shall any such delay or failure entitle the Customer to refuse to accept any delivery or performance or repudiate the Contract.
8.3 The Customer shall be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by the Company in the event that the Customer fails to accept or take delivery of any Goods or materials on which the Company has performed work when tendered at the agreed time or, if the Customer is to collect them, to collect them within 3 Business Days of the Company notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection and the Company may require the Customer to pay for the Goods (including any work) as though delivery or performance had been completed or may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods.
8.4 The Company may deliver the Goods by instalments, each of which shall be deemed to be the subject of a separate Contract which shall be invoiced and paid for separately and no failure by the Company in any instalment shall entitle the Customer to repudiate any Contract for Goods previously delivered or to refuse to accept any undelivered Goods.

9.1 The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on completion of delivery.
9.2 Title in the Goods shall remain with the Company and not pass to the Customer (who shall, nevertheless, subject to the conditions stated below, be entitled to resell them as principal only, and to use them in the ordinary course of business) until the Company has received payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the Goods and of all other debts for any other Contract owed to it by the Customer on any account.

126.96.36.199 enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are located for the purpose of inspecting or repossessing them and if the Goods are incorporated or attached to other assemblies of fabrications then the Company may remove the Goods (without being liable for any damage thereby occasioned).
9.4 The Company shall, without prejudice to any other remedy, be entitled to maintain an action for the price of the Goods although title in them has not passed to the Customer.

Recurring Payment (FuturePay) Agreements Recurring Payment (FuturePay) agreements are online arrangements similar to Standing Orders and Direct Debits, but funds can also be debited from your debit or credit card. Recurring Payment (FuturePay) agreements may be set up to obtain payment on a repeat or regular basis for ongoing subscriptions and memberships.
How does it work?
Setting up an Agreement A Recurring Payment (FuturePay) agreement is automatically set up when you choose a product or service that is paid for by recurring payment (FuturePay) from an online store. From the online store’s website you can view the agreed payment schedule before entering your payment details to set up the agreement. WorldPay then creates a unique reference number – called the FuturePay Agreement ID – for the agreement and provides you with a unique user-name and password to log in to the Shopper Management System. Your user-name, password and Agreement ID are sent to you in a confirmation email and are displayed on the payment page after you have entered your payment details. The user-name, password and FuturePay Agreement ID let you login and manage your agreement using the Shopper Management System. Login to the Shopper Management System is via a secure login page.
For more information, please refer to Log in to the Shopper Management System. You can view all your FuturePay agreements held with the same or different online stores under one login. For each FuturePay agreement you set up, you are prompted to enter your existing Shopper Management System user-name and password (if applicable). Any subsequent agreements can then be viewed using one login user-name and password.
Once your agreement has been set up, payments will automatically be collected according to the type of agreement. The agreement may be set up to take an immediate or a delayed payment. Each time a payment is debited from your card or bank account as part of your agreement, a transaction confirmation email is generated by our system and sent to the email address we have on record for you entered when your agreement was created. If your card expires or if a payment is not authorised, we will send you an email to you to inform you of the steps you need to take within our Shopper Management System to resolve the issue.
Regular agreements: this type of agreement is used to pay set or variable amounts at regular, fixed intervals over a specific time. This is typically used, for example, to pay for a monthly subscription.
