Throughout this document, the words: “Company”, “we”, us and “our” will be used to mean JC Leisure Connexions Limited of Unit 1, Hamburg Technology Park, Hamburg Road, Sutton Fields Industrial Estate, Hull, HU7 0WD, registration number 4981584, VAT number 828784380. “Customer”, ‘you’ and ‘your’ means the person or organisation who orders and/or pays for the Goods or services from Us. “Contract” means any contract between Us and the Customer for selling and buying our goods and services and incorporates these Conditions; “Goods” and “Services” means what we agree to supply the Customer in the Contract.
All Contracts will be on these conditions unless one of our authorised Company signatories has clearly agreed in writing or by email to vary them and specific new conditions are formally agreed. No other Conditions apply, including any the Customer presents through an order confirmation statement, purchase order or any other document. Every order the Customer places with us (whether verbally, online or in writing), is deemed to be an offer to buy our products or services under these conditions. Until we have sent a written or emailed order confirmation, or we have delivered the goods to the Customer (whichever comes first), We have not accepted, nor agreed to be bound by, any order.
Unless we agree in writing to a specific alternative arrangement, we will calculate the charges for any services we provide to the Customer under the Contract in line with our standard charges. As an example, this may include (but isn’t limited to) our design services or consultancy fees. From time to time, this may be on top of the price of the Goods. We will always notify the Customer of any such charges in advance. Once agreed, we may send the invoice to the Customer as soon as we have provided those services.
Conditions 19 and 20 outline acceptable reasons for the cancellation of the Contract. Aside from these reasons, the Contract can’t be cancelled (partly or altogether) unless we agree to it in writing/by email and the Customer has paid us the amount needed to indemnify us against any losses we would incur as a result of that cancelled order.
5.1 With the exception of orders placed using the online design tool, we will produce a first digital proof of the Goods before they’re made. This will be based on the “specification” agreed between the Company and the Customer when the Contract was formed. We’re not obliged to make any amendments to the first proof unless it doesn’t match the Specification. We will produce up to two proofs free of charge. At our discretion, we may produce further proofs of the Goods. In these cases, the cost of producing further proofs will be calculated against the Company’s standard charges and may be added to the price of the Goods. The Company can’t be held responsible for errors in proofs (or for errors in Goods which include any errors contained in the proofs) which have been approved by the Customer.
5.2 Unless otherwise stated, there may be a reasonable variation in colour between colour proofs and the manufactured goods. This is due to the differences in equipment, computer screens, paper, inks and other conditions between the proofing stage and production of the Goods.
6. Machine Readable Codes
6.1 The Company will print machine-readable codes or symbols according to the Specification in keeping with generally accepted standards and procedures in the printing industry.
6.2 The Customer is responsible for making sure any such codes or symbols will be read correctly by the equipment with which the codes are intended to be used.
6.3 The Company can’t be liable to the Customer for any claim by any party resulting from such codes or symbols not reading, or not reading correctly, unless the error has been caused by us failing to comply with condition 6.1 and the failure falls outside the tolerances generally accepted in the printing industry. The Customer shall fully indemnify, and keep the Company indemnified, against such claims.
7. Standing Material
7.1 Any metal, film, tapes, computer programs (including, but not limited to, source code) and other materials (including, but not limited to, any intellectual property rights) owned and used by the Company to produce type, plates, film, setting, negatives, positives, electronic files and the like remain our exclusive property.
7.2 The Company shall not be required to download any electronic or digital data from its equipment or supply any of these to the Customer on disk, tape or by any communication link unless otherwise agreed in writing or by email.
8. Variations to the Order
8.1 In the highly unlikely event the Company doesn’t deliver the exact quantity ordered, the Customer must notify the Company within 24 hours of receiving the Goods.
8.2 The Company may accept, but isn’t obliged to accept, changes the Customer asks to make to the Specification.
9. Cost Variation
9.1 The Company may occasionally add extra charges to the price of Goods (calculated against the Company’s standard charges):
(a) to cover the costs of any additional work involved where information, copy or electronic or digital data (whether supplied on disk or via any data transmission) isn’t clear and legible; or doesn’t conform to the Company’s reasonable specifications; or isn’t suitable for outputting on equipment normally adequate for such purposes without us adjusting it or taking other corrective action; and/or
(b) where the Customer hasn’t sent us information, data, proofs or any other materials or documentation we require in the time agreed to carry out our obligations under the Contract; and/or
(c) to cover any increased costs due to any changes to the Specification of Goods which have been requested by the Customer and accepted by the Company.
10.1 All indicated dates for the despatch or delivery of goods are approximate only. They are not of the essence (and may not be made so by notice). They also rely on the Customer meeting its obligations under the Contract. If no dates are specified, despatch and/or delivery will be made within a reasonable time.
10.2 Unless otherwise agreed and clearly stated, the price doesn’t include delivery. Where a quote does include delivery (and insurance) to an agreed address, we reserve the right to charge reasonable extra charges to cover any increase in transport costs which occur before the delivery date.
10.3 Where we agree to deliver Goods to the Customer’s premises, we’ll use our own choice of courier. If the Customer chooses to arrange their own collection instead (at their own expense) then the Company will have no liability whatsoever to the Customer for Goods lost or damaged during transit.
10.4 Where the price quoted is for delivery of the Goods ex-works, the Customer will be responsible for arranging carriage of the Goods and for insurance of the Goods during transit.
Unless we’ve agreed to deliver Goods in line with Condition 10.3 above, the Goods are the Customer’s risk from the time the Goods are collected by any party or, where appropriate, when they’re loaded onto the relevant vehicle for despatch.
12. Call off delivery
12.1 Where the Contract involves us storing the Goods before sending them to the Customer, the following provisions will apply:
(a) We will confirm and agree the premises for storage and collection or delivery date (as appropriate) at the time the Contract is entered into; and
(b) We are entitled to invoice the Customer for all Goods at the time of delivery. The Company is also entitled to send the Customer monthly invoices for storage costs. The Company will also invoice the Customer for its costs of transporting the Goods (or any part of them) from the place of storage to an agreed destination as soon as they’re despatched. Risk will pass to the customer as set out in Condition 11.
13. Terms of Payment
13.1 When Goods are bought online, the Customer must pay when ordering before we will despatch any Goods.. For credit approved customers the terms below apply.
13.2 The Customer will pay the price for the Goods (and any other costs due under the Contract) as per the payment terms agreed at the time of ordering and stated on our invoice. Until we have received cleared funds, we will deem that no payment has yet been received.
13.3 For any full or part payments that haven’t been received by the due date, we reserve the right to charge interest (both before and after judgement) at a rate of 4% over the Bank of Scotland base rate. This will accrue every day on all outstanding late amounts from the due date until we have received cleared full payment.
13.4 If the Customer fails to pay in full for goods by the due date required to qualify for any discounts, such discounts shall be withdrawn immediately.
13.5 All prices shown and quoted are exclusive of VAT which will be added at the applicable rate to the Goods or Services provided.
14. Retention of Title
14.1 All Goods remain our property until we have received cleared payment in full for all Goods, Services and other sums which are due from the Customer for any reason.
14.2 Until property in the goods has passed to the Customer the Customer shall store the goods separately from any other goods belonging to the Customer or any third party in a way that means they are clearly identifiable as the Company’s property.
14.3 The Customer grants Us and any bailiffs acting on Our behalf the right to recover any goods which haven’t been paid for.
14.4 We are entitled to recover payment for the Goods before ownership of any of them will be passed from the Company to the Customer.
15. Warranty and Liability
15.1 All services we supply will be performed with reasonable skill and care (in line with other provisions of these conditions including, but not limited to, conditions 5.1 and 5.2). The Goods we supply to the customer will, at the time of delivery comply materially with the specification and be fit for purpose. They will be made properly, from suitable materials and will not be defective for the purposes they were made for. All other warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law (other than conditions expressed in the Consumer Rights Act 2015) are excluded from the Contract to the fullest extent the law allows.
15.2 The Company won’t be liable for any claims for defects, damage, delay or non-delivery of Goods unless You inform us by writing or emailing the Company within 3 days of delivery (or expected delivery) and give us reasonable time to put the situation right and fulfil our obligation. For people placing orders as an individual, rather than on behalf of a business, this does not affect Your Statutory rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
15.3 Unless the Company is negligent or makes a fraudulent misrepresentation which causes death or personal injury, (see 15.6 below), the Company’s total liability is limited only to a full refund of any payments made for the specific Goods affected.
15.4 Unless the Company is negligent or makes a fraudulent misrepresentation which causes death or personal injury, (see 15.6 below), the Company shall not be liable to the Customer for any indirect or consequential losses, or for losses of profit, revenue, business goodwill or anticipated savings for any reason.
15.5 The Company shall not be liable for any defects arising from:
(a) Goods we’ve produced in line with Company Specifications
(b) Goods we’ve produced in line with any Customer supplied specifications
(c) Goods where the work supplied is of similar quality and standard as the sample proofs or specifications which we supplied, and which were accepted and/or approved by the Customer. Any sample proofs or specifications can be accepted by express confirmation (and the signing by the Customer of such sample proofs or specifications is proof of acceptance) or deemed accepted if they’re not rejected by the Customer within one working day of us sending them.
15.6 Nothing in these Conditions excludes or limits the liability of the Company for death or personal injury caused by the Company’s negligence or liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.

It also includes lock-outs, strikes or other labour disputes (whether or not relating to either party’s workforce); restraints/delays affecting carriers; or any inability or problems getting hold of supplies of adequate or suitable materials.
