Please read these terms and conditions carefully before ordering any Products from our site.

1. INFORMATION ABOUT US
1.1 www.profoil.com is a site operated by Profoil Systems Limited (we).

Registration No: 7252946 (Registered in England and Wales). VAT No: 990 5163 06.
2. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
2.1 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
2.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
3. CONSUMER RIGHTS
3.1 Our site is intended for the sale of Products to businesses, not consumers.
3.2 Notwithstanding clause 3.1 above, if you are contracting as a consumer (but not otherwise), you may cancel a Contract at any time within 14 days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 7).
3.3 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Product(s) to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
3.4 You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any of the Products (including dies) which have been manufactured to your design or specification.
3.5 Where you act as a consumer, the Contract does not affect your statutory rights.
4. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
5. RISK AND TITLE
5.1 The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
5.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
6. PRICE AND PAYMENT
6.1 The price of any Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
6.2 These prices exclude delivery costs (including packaging, insurance and carriage) and exclude VAT and all other duties and taxes, which will be added to the total amount due.
6.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
6.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
6.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
6.6 Unless otherwise agreed, payment for all Products must be by bank transfer, credit or debit card or Paypal services.
6.7 Discount offers cannot be used in conjunction with another similar offer, we will always endeavour to give you the best price using the offers available.
7. OUR REFUNDS POLICY
7.1.1 When you return a Product we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund for the defective Product. Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
7.2 We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
7.3 If unwanted goods are returned after the expiry of the 30-day return period but within a reasonable period of time, Profoil reserves the right to levy a restocking handling charge. A charge of 30% of the invoice value of the goods returned will be levied. All goods will have to be returned at the cost of the customer and will be inspected on arrival. Any defective items cannot be returned.
7.4 If unwanted goods shipped outside the UK are rejected at customs clearance by the customer, whether or not by refusal to pay customs fees or at point of delivery, Profoil reserves the right to levy a restocking handling charge once the goods are returned in good condition by the instructed courier. A charge of 30% of the invoice value of the goods returned will be levied. The customer is liable for the cost of any return shipment(s) and Profoil reserves the right to deduct this from any refunds.
