5. Ordering Errors
Any errors or order discrepancies should be rectified prior to the order being completed.
All prices provided are exclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering information. Where it is not possible to accept your order to buy goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, and offer to sell you the goods of the same specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state in the email the period for which the offer or the price remains valid.
7. Payment Terms
We will take payment upon receipt of your order via your chosen payment method. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from you, then we can refuse to process your order and/or suspend any further deliveries to you. We must receive payment for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Where a contribution is to be paid, this must be paid in full before your order can be accepted. Payment of the price for the goods represents an offer on your part to purchase the goods, which will be accepted by us only when the goods are dispatched. Only at this point is a legally binding contract created between us.
8.1 Delivery charges vary according to the type of goods ordered. The cost will be expressed to you prior to confirmation of your order.
8.2 It might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations.
8.3 Delivery will be made either by an insured carrier or via an installation engineer. We aim to deliver tailor-made systems within 10 working days.
8.4 We will deliver the goods to the address you specify. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence). We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed. In any event, we will aim to deliver your goods within 10 working days from the day after the day we received your order. If delivery is delayed beyond this time, we will contact you to agree a mutually acceptable alternative date. Any delay in excess of 30 days, we will offer you a full refund should any payment have been made.
8.5 You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.
9. Risk and Ownership
Risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you. You will only own the goods once they have been successfully delivered. Any lost or damaged equipment passed to you at the time of delivery need to be reported to Avantek Computer Ltd within 48 hours.
10. Rental Equipment
Equipment that has been loaned to you by Avantek Computer Ltd remains the property of Avantek Computer Ltd.

Avantek requires confirmation (via post, e-mail, fax or phone) of any impending cancellation.
12.2 If you wish to alter your order once delivery has been confirmed you must notify Avantek at least 2 working days prior to your delivery date. Any alterations to your order within 2 working days of your delivery may incur a restocking fee for any items which we have ordered in for you.

12.4 If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then you must send the goods back to our contact address at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery, you should not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
12.5 Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited by us from your payment method will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of cancellation.
12.6 Any cancellation of a training appointment must be reported to Avantek Computer Ltd with at least 48 hours’ notice; cancellation within 48 hours of the session will be subject to a cancelation fee (exceptional circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis).
