The date of this Agreement is [Day] of [Month], 20[Year] (the “Signing Date”)
This is an agreement between:
- [Supplier Name] of [Address] (“I/We/Us” in this Agreement); and
- [Client Name] of [Address] (“You” in this Agreement).
These are the terms and conditions referred to in your order (‘Order’) for Us to supply You with [Description of Goods] (‘Goods’).
They describe the terms on which We will sell the Goods to You. In particular, We must deliver the correct Goods to the right place at the agreed time in good condition, and they explain our liability to You if We fail to meet these standards.
They also explain that You must pay Us the correct price, and when legal ownership of the Goods passes from Us to You. These issues are important for insurance and risk purposes, and so We have also included a clause to explain the position if Goods are damaged or delayed for reasons outside anyone’s control (including natural causes).
This introduction is designed to give You an overview of the terms and conditions, but it is not part of the terms and conditions themselves.
Note: These terms and conditions must be referred to in the Supplier’s contract or order form and must be given to the Customer before the Contract/order form is signed. If they are not, they will be ineffective.
- 3.1 The Order is your offer to buy the Goods from Us on these Conditions, and You must make sure that the Order (and any specification that forms part of your Order) is correct.
- 3.2 When We send You a written acceptance, You have a binding Contract with Us, and these Conditions are part of it.
- 3.3 This Contract is our entire Agreement. No previous statements or representations that We have made to You form part of the Contract unless they are written into it. This includes samples, drawings, advertising, catalogues and other promotional or descriptive material.
- 3.4 If We have given You a quotation for the Goods, it is only valid for [NUMBER] days from its issue date. It is not an offer to sell You the Goods.
- 3.5 If either of Us needs to give the other a notice under the Contract (‘Notice’), the Notice must be given properly to be effective. Clause 10.4 explains how to give a proper Notice.
