1.5 We only sell to the UK. Our Website is solely for the promotion of our Goods in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept Orders from or deliver to addresses outside the UK.

2. OUR GOODS

2.1 The images of the Goods on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Goods. Your Goods may vary slightly from those images.

2.2 The packaging of the Goods may vary from that shown in images on our website.

2.3 If we are supplying the Goods to weights and/or measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that such weights and/or measurements are correct.

3. PRICE AND PAYMENT

3.1 The price of the Goods shall be our quoted price as set out in our Quotation. We take reasonable care to ensure that the price advised to you is correct, however please see clause 3.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Goods you Order. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the price is inclusive of VAT and other duties (all of which you will pay to us in addition). If the rate of VAT changes between your Order date and the date we supply the Goods we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

3.2 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where the Order’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 Order’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.

3.3 Delivery of the Goods otherwise than ex works at our premises (to be collected by you) shall be subject to additional charges for transport, packaging and insurance.

3.4 You shall pay the price of the Goods in advance and the Goods will be dispatched and/or made available for collection upon clearance of monies in the bank accounts of The Scottish Salmon Company.

3.5 We shall not be bound to deliver the Goods until you have paid for them. In the event of Goods being dispatched before payment or clearance of payment; payment will be made by you in a timely manner (and in accordance with any payment dates detailed in the Contract and/or relevant invoice).

3.6 If you fail to make any payment on the due date then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to us, we shall be entitled to;

3.6.1 charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount; and/or

4.2 If you are to collect the Goods from our premises, you can collect them from us at any time during our working hours of 10.00-16.00 on Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays). We will deliver the Goods to you, or make them available for collection, as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your Order or we will contact you to agree a delivery date. If our supply of Goods is delayed by an event outside our control (such as, without limitation, a Brexit Event) 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 Goods you have paid for but not received. If delivery is to take place in instalments, each delivery will be a separate Contract.

4.3 If you do not collect the Goods from us as arranged or if no one is available at your delivery address to take delivery and the Goods cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery. If after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the Contract. You agree and understand that the Goods are perishable products with limited shelf-life and therefore re-arrangement of delivery may not always be possible.

4.4. Risk of loss of or damage to the Goods shall pass from us to you on delivery. You must notify us of any shortages or damage to the Goods within 2 days of delivery. Your failure to do so shall be conclusive evidence that you have accepted the Goods.

We will not be responsible for supplying the Goods late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
