Terms & Conditions

1. Sorted4Safety conditions apply unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing by Sorted4Safety limited, all quotations and contracts for the supply of goods by Sorted4Safety are made upon these Conditions of Sale (“ Sorted4Safety Conditions") which shall at all times override any terms and conditions which the purchaser of such goods ("the Purchaser") imposes or seeks to impose. Delivery of any goods following a quotation for supply made by Sorted4Safety will be made only upon Sorted4Safety Conditions.

2. Payment Terms

Terms of payment are strictly net monthly (i.e. payment on or before the end of the month following the month during which the invoice is dated) and in default shall Sorted4Safety be entitled without notice to the Purchaser (even if the Purchaser has a contract with a third party) to terminate any outstanding order or quotation, to withhold and/or suspend supplies or to reduce the Purchaser’s credit limit. Sorted4Safety shall also be entitled, at their discretion, to receive payment of any and all monies in respect of goods supplied whether these monies would ordinarily be due for payment at that time or not. In addition Sorted4Safety shall be entitled to charge the Purchaser interest on the amount unpaid at the rate of 2% above NatWest bank Plc base rate until payment in full is made and the Purchaser will indemnify Sorted4Safety in respect of all costs incurred by Sorted4Safety in recovering payment, including the cost of instructing Solicitors. In the event that the Purchaser tenders payment by cheque and the cheque is subsequently returned by the Purchaser’s Bankers unpaid, the Purchaser will also indemnify Sorted4Safety in respect of all resulting bank charges incurred by Sorted4Safety conditions.

3. Retention of Title

Although risk in the goods supplied passes to the Purchaser on delivery, legal title in such goods shall not pass to the Purchaser until Sorted4Safety has received in cleared funds the full price payable for such goods and ALL other goods supplied by Sorted4Safety to the Purchaser for which payment is then due. Until legal title passes, the Purchaser shall hold the goods as Sorted4Safety’s fiduciary agent and shall keep them properly stored, protected, insured and identified as property of Sorted4Safety. Until that time the Purchaser is entitled to resell or use the goods in the ordinary course of its business but shall account to Sorted4Safety for their proceeds of sale and pending payment shall hold such proceeds on trust for Sorted4Safety absolutely The Purchaser’s right to resell or use the goods shall terminate automatically if a liquidator or (administrative) receiver or administrator of the Purchaser is appointed or an order is made or a resolution passed for the winding up of the Purchaser. Until such time as legal title in the goods passes to the Purchaser Sorted4Safety may at any time require the Purchaser, its liquidator, (administrative) receiver or administrator to return the goods and/or may repossess the goods by entering upon any premises of the Purchaser or any third party where the goods are reasonably believed to be stored. In addition and without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to Sorted4Safety, if the purchaser is in breach of the payment terms or of any of its obligations under this clause, Sorted4Safety shall be entitled to cancel the contract, suspend further deliveries, terminate any outstanding order or quotation without incurring any liability whatsoever as a consequence of this action.

4. Delivery

Sorted4Safety will endeavour to meet any delivery date quoted but delivery dates are given and intended as an estimate only and if there are any circumstances whatsoever which prevent or delay delivery, Sorted4Safety shall not be bound to supply or make delivery of any goods ordered nor shall it be liable for any damage or consequential loss or in any other way for failure to supply or delay in delivery when so prevented or delayed.

5. Liability

(a) Risk in the goods passes to the Purchaser on delivery and Sorted4Safety shall not be liable for any loss of or damage to or deterioration of the goods howsoever caused and the Purchaser will keep Sorted4Safety fully indemnified against all loss and/or liability arising from any such loss damage or deterioration.

(c) All conditions and warranties as to the quality and fitness for any particular purpose of the goods supplied (whether statutory or otherwise) are expressly excluded but (without prejudice to such exclusion) every care will be taken to ensure that goods supplied will conform to Sorted4Safety standards or to specification (within the limits of reasonable commercial accuracy/tolerance) and if Sorted4Safety recognises that goods supplied do not conform to its standards or to specification (within the limits of reasonable commercial accuracy/tolerance) Sorted4Safety will, in assessing the value of any allowance or replacement which it may agree to make, have regard to the extent/nature of the defect, information given by the Purchaser as to the application of the goods, the use already made of the goods and any other relevant factor but in any event Sorted4Safety maximum liability shall be limited to the invoice value of the goods.

(d) Sorted4Safety accepts no liability for consequential loss or damage to property which is attributed to the failure of goods supplied (whether or not Sorted4Safety is the manufacturer of the goods) whether due to accident, abuse, incorrect technical assessment by Sorted4Safety or its employees/representatives or for any other reason.
