1. INFORMATION ABOUT US

1.1 The definitions and rules of interpretation in this document apply as follows.

The Buyer is the person, firm or supplier who purchases the Goods from Us.

The Contract is any contract between Horror Stock and the Buyer for the sale and purchase of the Goods, incorporating these conditions.

The Delivery Point is the place where delivery of the Goods is to take place.

Goods: any goods agreed in the Contract to be supplied to the Buyer by Horror Stock (including any part or parts of them).

The Site refers to our website defined as either Horror Stock or www.horrorstock.com

1.2 A reference to a particular law is a reference to it as it is in force for the time being taking account of any amendment, extension, application or re-enactment and includes any subordinate legislation for the time being in force made under it.

1.3 Words in the singular include the plural and in the plural include the singular.

1.4 A reference to one gender includes a reference to the other gender.

1.5 Condition headings do not affect the interpretation of these conditions.

1.6 No representative or agent of ours has authority to agree any terms or make any representations inconsistent with these terms or to enter into any contract except on the basis of these terms, unless such contract or alteration has been agreed in writing and signed by a Director of ours.

2. APPLICATION OF TERMS

2.1 Subject to any variation under condition 2.3 the Contract shall be on these conditions to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (including any terms or conditions which the Buyer purports to apply under any purchase order, confirmation of order, specification or other document).

2.2 No terms or conditions endorsed on, delivered with or contained in the Buyer's purchase order, confirmation of order, specification or other document shall form part of the Contract simply as a result of such document being referred to in the Contract.

2.3 These conditions apply to all our sales and any variation to these conditions and any representations about the Goods shall have no effect unless expressly agreed in writing and signed by our director. The Buyer acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by or on behalf of us which is not set out in the Contract. Nothing in this condition shall exclude or limit our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.

2.4 Each order or acceptance of a quotation for Goods by the Buyer from us shall be deemed to be an offer by the Buyer to buy Goods subject to these conditions.

2.5 No order placed by the Buyer shall be deemed to be accepted by us until a written acknowledgement of order is issued by us and confirmed to the Buyer.

2.6 The Buyer shall ensure that the terms of its order and any applicable specification are complete and accurate.

2.7 Any quotation is given on the basis that no Contract shall come into existence until we issue an acknowledgement of order to the Buyer or despatch the Goods to the Buyer.

2.8 Any quotation is valid for a period of 30 days only from its date, provided that we have not previously withdrawn it (unless otherwise agreed in writing).

2.9 For the avoidance of doubt, the Contract shall come into existence when we issue an acknowledgement of order to the Buyer (or despatches the Goods, if earlier). Thereafter no alteration or cancellation shall be made to the order by the Buyer, whether the Goods are bespoke or otherwise, without the agreement made in writing by us.

3. DESCRIPTION

3.1 The quantity and description of the Goods shall be as set out in our quotation, and confirmed in the acknowledgement of order, and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure the suitability and accuracy of their order requirements.

3.2 All samples, drawings, sketches, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued by us and any descriptions or illustrations contained in our marketing materials are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract and this is not a sale by sample.

4. RISK/TITLE

4.1 The Goods are at the risk of the Buyer from the time of delivery.

4.2 Ownership of the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until we have received in full (in cleared funds) all sums due to it in respect of: (a) the Goods; and (b) all other sums which are or which become due to us from the Buyer on any account.

4.3 Until ownership of the Goods has passed to the Buyer, the Buyer shall: (a) hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as our bailee; (b) store the Goods (at no cost to us) separately from all other goods of the Buyer or any third party in such a way that they remain readily identifiable as our property; (c) not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods; and (d) maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured on our behalf for their full price against all risks to the reasonable satisfaction of us. On request the Buyer shall produce the policy of insurance to us.

4.4 The Buyer may resell the Goods before ownership has passed to it solely on the following conditions: (a) any sale shall be effected in the ordinary course of the Buyer's business at full market value; and (b) any such sale shall be a sale of our property on the Buyer's own behalf and the Buyer shall deal as principal when making such a sale.

4.5 The Buyer's right to possession of the Goods shall terminate immediately if: (a) the Buyer has a bankruptcy order made against him or makes an arrangement or composition with his creditors, or otherwise takes the benefit of any statutory provision for the time being in force for the relief of insolvent debtors, or (being a body corporate) convenes a meeting of creditors (whether formal or informal), or enters into liquidation (whether voluntary or compulsory) except a solvent voluntary liquidation for the purpose only of reconstruction or amalgamation, or has a receiver and/or manager, administrator or administrative receiver appointed of its undertaking or any part thereof, or documents are filed with the court for the appointment of an administrator of the Buyer or notice of intention to appoint an administrator is given by the Buyer or its directors or by a qualifying floating charge holder (as defined in paragraph 14 of Schedule B1 to the Insolvency Act 1986), or a resolution is passed or a petition presented to any court for the winding-up of the Buyer or for the granting of an administration order in respect of the Buyer, or any proceedings are commenced relating to the insolvency or possible insolvency of the Buyer; or (b) the Buyer suffers or allows any execution, whether legal or equitable, to be levied on his/its property or obtained against him/it, or fails to observe or perform any of his/its obligations under the Contract or any other contract between us and the Buyer, or is unable to pay its debts within the meaning of section 123 of the Insolvency Act 1986 or the Buyer ceases to trade; or (c) the Buyer encumbers or in any way charges any of the Goods.

4.8 Where we are unable to determine whether any Goods are the goods in respect of which the Buyer's right to possession has terminated, the Buyer shall be deemed to have sold all goods of the kind sold by us to the Buyer in the order in which they were invoiced to the Buyer.

4.9 On termination of the Contract, howsoever caused, our (but not the Buyer's) rights contained in this condition 6 shall remain in effect.

5.4 Product prices and delivery charges 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.

5.5 Our site contains a 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 due to raw material fluctuations. 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 that we are rejecting it and the reasons for the rejection.

5.6 If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
