(a) Orders are subject to the conditions of sale here specified and any conditions on the Buyers documents which are at variance thereto shall only apply if the Company agrees in writing.
(b) Any and all queries regarding the price charged for the goods, delivery, payment terms, or any dispute for any reasons must be notified to the Company in writing within a period of 3 days from the date of delivery of the goods or the invoice date.
2. CANCELLATION OF ORDER
After acceptance by the Company of the Buyers Order and prior to delivery of the goods the Buyer shall be entitled to cancel his order upon payment of a cancellation fee at the relevant percentage shown below of the retail price of the goods and such sum shall be the limit of the Buyers liability.

Any claim for short delivery or damage must be made to the Company in writing within 24 hours of the date of invoice and in the case on non-delivery in writing within 7 days of the date of invoice. Failure to make such a claim within the time specified will preclude the customer from making any claim or set off against the Company in respect of the above and the invoice shall be and remain due and payable. In case any claim shall lie against the Company for non-delivery, short delivery or damage of goods howsoever caused, the Company shall not be liable for more than the invoice value of the items in question or for any indirect or consequential loss or damage.
