Terms & Conditions (Goods)
1.1. These terms and conditions (“Terms”) apply to the online purchase of goods via the website www.troudigital.com (“Website”) by clients (“Client”, “you”, “your” and “yours”). The goods are offered and supplied by Neo Media Signage Limited trading as TrouDigital (“TrouDigital” and “we”, “us” and “our”). It is important to read and understand these Terms before you make a purchase.
1.2. TrouDigital offers hardware products which can be used in conjunction with our digital signage solution, such as players and displays (“Goods”). TrouDigital only offers Goods to business clients, not consumers. Therefore, when you purchase our Goods, you warrant that you are acting for business purposes and that you are not acting for purposes that are wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession.
1.3. At the moment, we only offer our Goods for sale to Clients based in the United Kingdom. We do not deliver Goods to addresses outside the United Kingdom.
1.4. When you place an order, you agree to be bound by these Terms, which are part of the Agreement. If you do not agree to any of the provisions of these Terms, you should not place an order.
1.5. These Terms may be complemented with other documents, addendums or specific terms. Such documents, addendums or specific terms, together with these general Terms, form your agreement with us (“Agreement”).
1.6. Any terms and conditions or similar documents of the Client shall expressly not be applicable. No other terms are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.
2. ORDERING PROCESS
2.1. To buy Goods you have to follow the online process prompted on our Website. An order placed by you is an offer by you to buy the specified Goods subject to these Terms. Please check your order carefully before you confirm it. You are responsible for ensuring that your order is complete and accurate.
2.2. After you place an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received it. This e-mail indicates our acceptance of your order which means that a legally binding Agreement, containing these Terms, comes into existence.
2.3. When we ship the Goods you ordered, you will receive another email acknowledging that your order is completed.
2.4. Should we be unable to supply you with the Goods for any reason, we will inform you of this by email and we will not be obliged to complete your order. If you have already paid for the Goods, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
3.1. Any images or other graphic representations 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 your device’s display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Goods. The look and colour of your Goods may vary slightly from those images.
3.2. The packaging of your Goods may vary from that shown on images on our Website.
4. DELIVERY, TRANSFER OF RISK AND TITLE
4.1. After we have acknowledged your order, we will contact you with an estimated delivery date as soon as possible. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 8 for our responsibilities when this happens.
4.2. Delivery is complete once the Goods have been unloaded at the address for delivery set out in your order and the Goods will be at your risk from that time.
4.3. You own the Goods once we have received payment in full, including of all applicable charges.
4.4. If we fail to deliver the Goods, our liability is limited to the cost of obtaining replacement goods of a similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods. However, we will not be liable to the extent that any failure to deliver was caused by an Event Outside Our Control, or because you failed to provide adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of Goods.
5. PRICES AND PAYMENT
5.1. The prices of the Goods will be as quoted on our Website at the time you place your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Goods are correct at the time when the relevant information was uploaded to our Website. However, please see clause 5.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Goods you ordered.
5.2. Prices for our Goods may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
5.3. The price of Goods excludes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
5.4. The price of the Goods does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.
5.5. Despite our reasonable efforts, it is possible that the price of Goods on our Website is incorrect. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
(a) where the Goods’ correct price is less than the price stated on our Website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you; and
(b) if the Goods’ correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. However, if we mistakenly 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 cancel supply of the Goods and refund you any sums you have paid.
5.6. You can pay for the Goods using one of the payment methods made available to you during the order process.
5.7. Payment for the Goods and any applicable charges must be made in advance.
