iii. If we agree to vary any of the terms, the variation must be in writing and confirmed by a duly authorised representative.
iv. If any term of this agreement is held to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable, it shall not affect the enforceability of any of the remaining terms.
v. Dispatch times may vary according to availability and production time.

This will usually be N.Were Designs or may in some cases be a third party. Where a contract is made with a third party N.Were Designs is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you.

xiii. The terms found on this page may be updated at any time. Therefore, it is advised that you check this page regularly in order to be aware of any changes that have been made to the terms. This is your responsibility as a user of the website.
3. Ordering goods online
i. When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order. This email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order.

ii. You confirm to us that all information which you are required to provide when ordering products online is accurate and complete in all respects at the time of the order and that this information relates to you/the person placing the order and not to any third party.
iii. When an order is made online, the order confirmation issued by the company clearing the credit/debit card payment does not constitute acceptance of your order by us. We reserve the right to check any discrepancies and an order will be confirmed as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event before delivery of the Goods.
