circumstances at the time the Contract was made, or you said to us before the Contract was made that delivery on
time was essential; or

Channels Islands. If, however, we accept an Order for delivery outside that area, you may need to pay import duties or

reasonably practicable, examine the Goods before accepting them.

you, in which case you must return them or allow us to collect them.
Withdrawal and cancellation
37. You can withdraw the Order by telling us before the Contract is made, if you simply wish to change your mind and

in undamaged condition at your own expense. Then we must without delay refund to you the price for those Goods and
Services which have been paid for in advance, but we can retain any separate delivery charge. This does not affect your

conform to their description.
41. It is not a failure to conform if the failure has its origin in your materials.
42. We will supply the Services with reasonable skill and care.

of us on the same occasion, and any change to it that has been expressly agreed between us (before entering this
Contract or later).
