2.                      BASIS OF CONTRACT

2.1                    The Order constitutes an offer by the Customer to purchase Goods and/or Services in accordance with these Conditions.

2.2                    The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when the Supplier communicates acceptance to the Customer.
                         The Supplier may communicate its acceptance by either: (i) issuing written acceptance of the Order; or (ii) commencing
                         the Services, at which point and on which date the Contract shall come into existence (Commencement Date).

2.3                    Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter or advertising issued by the Supplier and any illustrations or descriptions of
                         the Services contained in the Supplier’s catalogues or brochures or on its website are issued or published for the sole
                         purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Services and/or Goods described in them. They shall not form part of the
                         Contract or have any contractual force.

2.4                    These Conditions apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms that the Customer seeks to impose or
                         incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.

                         its date of issue.

                         Event or the Customer’s failure to provide the Supplier with adequate delivery instructions.

4.4                    If the Customer fails to accept delivery of the Goods within five Business Days of the Supplier notifying the Customer
                         that the Goods are ready then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or by the
                         Supplier’s failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract:

(a)                             delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00 am on the fifth Business Day following
                                  the day on which the Supplier notified the Customer that the Goods were ready; and 

(b)                             the Supplier shall store the Goods until delivery takes place, and charge the Customer for all related costs and
                                  expenses (including insurance).

                         not accepted delivery of them, the Supplier may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods and, after
                         deducting reasonable storage and selling costs, charge the Customer for any shortfall.

(b)                            the Supplier is given a reasonable opportunity of examining such Goods; and

(a)                            the Customer makes any further use of such Goods after giving a notice in accordance with Clause 5.2;

(b)                            the defect arises because the Customer failed to follow the Supplier’s oral or written instructions as to the storage,
                                installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the Goods or (if there are none) good trade practice;

(c)                            the Customer interferes, alters or repairs or permits any third party to interfere, alter or repair such Goods without
                                the written consent of the Supplier; or

(d)                            the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions.

5.4                    Except as provided in this Clause 5, the Supplier shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Goods’ failure
                         to comply with the warranties in Clause 5.1. The Customer acknowledges that the Goods are not for resale and any

                                 Default to relieve it from the performance of any of its obligations in each case to the extent the Customer Default

                         such variations as is reasonably practicable in the circumstances. Without prejudice to the foregoing, the prices for

                         the Supplier, pay to the Supplier such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the
                         Services or Goods at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services or Goods.

                         under the Contract.

                                respective employees, agents, consultants and subcontractors, any emergency service or another service provider;
                                or

(e)                            any other losses arising as a result of circumstances beyond the Supplier's reasonable control.

                                               charges payable under the Contract.

12.2                 Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, the Supplier may terminate the Contract with immediate
                        effect by giving written notice to the Customer if:

(b)                            the Customer commits a material breach of its obligations under the Contract and (if such breach is remediable)

                                it to do so;

(c)                            the Customer or any of its holding companies takes any step or action in connection with its entering administration,
                                provisional liquidation or any composition or arrangement with its creditors (other than in relation to a solvent
                                restructuring), being wound up (whether voluntarily or by order of the court, unless for the purpose of a solvent
                                restructuring), having a receiver appointed to any of its assets or ceasing to carry on business or, if the step or
                                action is taken in another jurisdiction, in connection with any analogous procedure in the relevant jurisdiction;

(d)                            the Customer suspends, or threatens to suspend, or ceases or threatens to cease to carry on all or a substantial
                                part of its business; or

                        for any purpose not connected with this Contract.

15.                   GENERAL

15.1                 Assignment and other dealings

(a)                            The Supplier may at any time assign, mortgage, charge, subcontract, delegate, declare a trust over or deal in any
                                other manner with any or all of its rights and obligations under the Contract.

(b)                            The Customer shall not assign, transfer, mortgage, charge, subcontract, declare a trust over or deal in any other
                                manner with any of its rights and obligations under the Contract without the prior written consent of the Supplier,
                                which shall not be unreasonably withheld.

15.2                 Notices

(a)                            Any formal notice given to a party under or in connection with the Contract shall be in writing and shall be delivered
                                by hand or by pre-paid first-class post or other next working day delivery service at its registered office (if a company)
                                or its principal place of business (in any other case).

(b)                            Any formal notice shall be deemed to have been received: if delivered by hand, on signature of a delivery receipt
                                or at the time the notice is left at the proper address; if sent by pre-paid first-class post or other next working day
                                delivery service, at 9.00 am on the second Business Day after posting or at the time recorded by the delivery service.

(c)                            Any communication other than a formal notice given to a party under or in connection with the Contract shall be in
                                writing and may be via email.

15.3                 Severance

                         If any provision or part-provision of the Contract is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed
                         modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible,
                         the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or
                         part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Contract.

15.4                  Waiver

                         A waiver of any right or remedy under the Contract or by law is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed
                         a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. A failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided
                         under the Contract or by law shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or
                         restrict any further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy
                         provided under the Contract or by law shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.

15.5                  No partnership or agency

                         Nothing in the Contract is intended to, or shall be deemed to, establish any partnership or joint venture between the
                         parties, represent either party as the agent of the other, or authorise either party to make or enter into any commitments
                         for or on behalf of the other party.

15.6                  Entire agreement

(a)                            The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes and extinguishes all previous
                                 agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between them, whether
                                 written or oral, relating to its subject matter.

(b)                             Each party acknowledges that in entering into the Contract it does not rely on, and shall have no remedies in
                                 respect of any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that
                                 is not set out in the Contract. Each party agrees that it shall have no claim for innocent or negligent
                                 misrepresentation based on any statement in the Contract.

(c)                             Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude any liability for fraud.

15.7                  Third parties rights

                         The Contract does not give rise to any rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any
                         term of the Contract.

15.8                  Variation

(a)                             Except as set out in these Conditions, no variation of the Contract shall be effective unless it is agreed in writing
                                 and signed by the parties (or their authorised representatives).

(b)                             From time to time, the Supplier may need to make changes to these Conditions to reflect current market practice
                                 for the fire safety industry. Such changes shall not require the consent of the Customer but shall be notified by the
                                 Supplier to the Customer in writing.

15.9                  Governing law

                         The Contract and any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection
                         with it or its subject matter or formation shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England
                         and Wales.

15.10                Jurisdiction

                         Each party irrevocably agrees that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any
                         dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with the Contract or
                         its subject matter or formation.
