Terms and Conditions

All orders are accepted by Kingdom Signs Ltd, subject to the following terms and conditions of sale (‘these terms’)



Notwithstanding anything which may be contained in any purchase order or any other document of the Buyer, goods are supplied subject to these terms alone. No variations of them will apply unless expressly agreed by both parties in writing and signed by their authorised representatives on their behalf.

Kingdom Signs Ltd’s employees or agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning goods supplied under the terms hereof unless confirmed by Kingdom Signs Ltd in writing and the Buyer acknowledges that it does not rely on, and waives any claim for breach of, any such representations which are not confirmed.

 

1.        Interpretation

            “BUYER” means the person or persons who accepts a quotation of the Seller for the sale of the Goods or whose order for Goods is accepted by the Seller.

            “GOODS” means the goods (including any instalment of the goods or any parts for them) which the seller is to supply in accordance with these Conditions.

            “SELLER” means Kingdom Signs Ltd of Unit 5, Hawksworth, Southmead Ind. Est. Didcot, OX11 7HR.

            “CONDITIONS” means the standard terms and conditions of sale set out in this document and (unless the context otherwise requires) includes any special terms and conditions agreed in writing between the Buyer and the Seller.

            “CONTRACT” means the contract for the purchase and sale of the Goods.

            “WRITING” includes any telex, cable, e mail, facsimile transmission and any comparable means of communication.

1.2     Any reference in these Conditions to any provision of a statute shall be construed as a reference to that provision as amended, re-enacted or extended at the relevant time.

1.3     The headings in these Conditions are for convenience only and shall not affect their interpretation.

 

2.        The Price of goods

            The price of goods which the Seller is to supply in accordance with these terms shall be the Sellers quoted price or, where no price has been quoted (or a quoted price is no longer valid) the price listed in the Sellers published price list current at the date of acceptance of the order.

 

3.        Telephone and Email Orders

            If the Buyer makes an order orally followed by written confirmation the Buyer should ensure that the order is clearly endorsed ‘confirmation’.  Failure to so endorse the confirmation may result in the order being duplicated. The Buyer will then be responsible for settlement of the duplicated order in full.

 

4.        Order Cancellation

            Cancellation of an order by the Buyer after it has been accepted by the Seller can only be affected after prior negotiation and agreement by the Seller in writing. Any such orders must be cancelled in writing to the Seller by the Buyer, and on terms that the Buyer shall indemnify the Seller in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs (including the cost of labour and materials used), damages, charges, and expenses incurred by the Seller as a result of cancellation.

 

5.        Delivery

5.1       Unless specifically agreed in writing by the Seller the date of any delivery notified by the Seller to the Buyer is an estimate only and the Seller shall not be liable for the consequences of any delay in fulfilling the Buyers orders. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence unless, previously agreed by the Seller in writing.

5.2       Where goods are delivered by carriers over whom the Seller has no control the Seller shall not be liable for the consequences of any delay in transit. In the event of goods ordered and subsequently returned for any reason other than defect Kingdom Signs Limited reserves the right to affect a handling charge.

 

6.        Collection of Goods

            Kingdom Signs Ltd will hold goods after payment for up to six months after this period goods may be disposed of or re-used at our discretion.

 

7.        Shortages and Damages

            Claims for shortages and damages to goods will not be accepted unless notified to the Seller seven days from the date of invoice of goods. Full details of the circumstances on any loss must be given and packaging, etc., retained. Admitted shortages will be replaced at the previously invoiced price, quoting invoice number. Parcels delivered to the Buyer in a damaged condition should be returned to the Seller.

 

8.        Defective Goods / Consequential Loss

8.1       The Seller guarantees that the goods are free from defects and are of satisfactory quality but it is for the Buyer to satisfy himself that the goods are fit and suitable for the purpose for which he requires them. Defects in goods delivered shall not be grounds for cancellation by the Buyer of the remainder of any order or contract.

8.2       Kingdom Signs Ltd are unable to accept responsibility for loss or damage, to persons or property, caused by failure to adequately maintain signs or for signs that have been positioned or installed in a specific location as requested by the buyer.

 

9.        Damage to Property

9.1       At all stages of applying and removing vehicle graphics, Kingdom Signs Ltd will endeavour to preserve the state of the vehicle paintwork. In our extensive experience, damage will rarely be caused to the paintwork of a vehicle if it is of a “factory” standard, and high quality graphics have been used for the intended duration. However, it is the duty of the owner of the vehicle to ensure suitability. Kingdom Signs Ltd cannot be held responsible for any damage, discolouration or failure caused to the paintwork of a vehicle or trim.

9.2       In some cases the adhesion of signs direct to wall surfaces may cause damage to the original surface when removed. Kingdom Signs Ltd cannot be held liable for such damage and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure the suitability of fixings.

 

10       Terms of Payment            

10.1     All Goods remain the property of Kingdom Signs Ltd until full payment has been received from the Buyer.

10.2     The Payment for sales within the UK shall be nett monthly terms, subject to satisfactory references.

10.3     If the Buyer fails to make payment on the due date then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Seller, the Seller shall be entitled to cancel the contract or suspend any further deliveries to the Buyer.

10.4     Any payment received for goods which is then refused by the issuer will incur an administration charge in line with the charges levied by the bank.

 

11.      Copyright

Goods that are protected by copyright regulations are supplied on the understanding that it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that correct copyright permission has been obtained. The Seller accepts no responsibility or liability for any breach of copyright regulations by any Goods supplied by the Seller.

 

12.      Reservation of Title

            Although goods supplied by the Seller to the Buyer shall be at the Buyers risk immediately on delivery to the Buyer (and the Buyer should be insured accordingly), property in the goods shall not pass from the Seller to the Buyer until they have been paid for in full. Until property in the goods passes from the Seller to the Buyer as foresaid the Buyer shall hold the goods as bailee of the Seller. Where goods are supplied under a Contract Order with delivery instalments over an extended period, then the order is to be regarded as a whole so that the property in none of the goods passes until all the goods, the subject of the Contract Order, have been paid for in full.

 

13.      Termination

13.1    The contract will terminate immediately upon the happening of any one or more of the following; namely that the Buyer has a bankruptcy order made against him or has made an arrangement or composition with his creditors or (being a body corporate) has had convened a meeting of creditors (whether formal or informal) or has entered into liquidation (whether voluntary or compulsory) or has a receiver manager administrator or administrative receiver appointed of its undertaking or any part thereof or a resolution has been passed or a petition presented to any court the winding-up of the Buyer granting of an administration  order in respect of the Buyer or any proceedings have been commenced relating to the insolvency or possible insolvency of the Buyer.

13.2    The contract will terminate immediately upon service of written notice of termination by the Seller on the Buyer if the Buyer has failed to observe or perform any of its obligations or duties under this contract.

 

14.      Force Majeure

            If delivery is delayed by any cause beyond reasonable control of the Seller, a reasonable extension of time for delivery shall be granted and the Buyer shall pay such reasonable extra charges as shall have been occasioned by the delay.
