8.2 If you are a consumer your statutory rights are not affected by any of these terms and conditions.
8.3 Any claim by you which is based on any defect in the quality of the products supplied or their failure to correspond with specification must be notified to us as soon as possible from the date of delivery (and in any case, within 30 days of delivery) or (where the defect or failure was not apparent on reasonable inspection) within a reasonable time after discovery of the defect or failure. If you do not notify us accordingly, you will not be entitled to reject the products and we shall have no liability for such defect or failure.
8.4 If the goods purchased are of unsatisfactory quality, unfit for purpose or not as described (‘defective’) and you notify us within 30 days of delivery then you are entitled to cancel your order and receive a refund. After this 30 day period you are entitled to repair or replacement of defective goods, but if you notify us that the goods are defective more than six months following delivery then we are entitled to require that you demonstrate that the products were defective on delivery.
8.5 If a product supplied is defective, we will replace or repair the items free of charge or refund to you the price of the item (see above for more information), but we shall have no further liability to you.
8.6 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.
8.7 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
8.8 Save as explained above our liability under or in connection with these terms and conditions is limited to the price of the items supplied.
8.9 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. 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; of satisfactory quality; fit for purpose; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

9.7 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations.
9.8 We shall not be responsible for any breach of these terms and conditions caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
