Where you have placed an Order for Products either by phone or other than via the Website, any Product supplied is subject to these terms and conditions as referenced in Klipspringer documentation (either by email, by Order Acknowledgment, Order Confirmation or other correspondence).
2. The Contract for a particular transaction is concluded at the point where Klipspringer accepts your offer to purchase any Products by remitting an order confirmation to you (the "Order Confirmation") by email. Until such Order Acknowledgment or Order Confirmation is sent, Klipspringer has no obligation in respect of your proposed purchase. The Order Acknowledgment or Order Confirmation is subject to these terms and conditions which shall apply to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions.
3. Klipspringer may however in its sole discretion reject your order in whole or in part (without liability) if it is unable to fulfil it in full and will refund any payments made for the unfulfilled portion of your order.
4. If Klipspringer is unable to supply you with a product, for example because that product is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price on our Website it will inform you of this by e-mail and will not process that part of your order that cannot be fulfilled. If you have already paid for the products, Klipspringer will refund you the amount in respect of that part of the Order that cannot be fulfilled as soon as reasonably possible.

11. Special delivery services are available on request for UK mainland only.

This generally means orders are delivered the next working day before 17:30 in the UK (allow 2 working days for ROI, Northern Ireland and a few of the most northern counties of Scotland), although this cannot be guaranteed by Klipspringer. All deliveries must be acknowledged, inspected and signed for by a representative of the buyer.

In the event of the failure to deliver the Product by the time specified in the special delivery service as set out above, Klipspringer’s liability shall be to reimburse the difference paid by the Buyer above the cost of standard delivery.
For Products or packaging damaged prior to delivery the provisions set out below shall apply.

Klipspringer will advise the Buyer if and when it proposes to stop deliveries or withdraw credit, although failure to do so notify shall not affect Klipspringer’s rights.

Prior to the application of clause 20, Klipspringer will make every effort to work with the customer to effect a swift payment and provide the buyer at least 10 working days’ notice to resolve any invoicing queries.
21. Payment shall be made in full without any deduction or withholding other than as required by law and the buyer shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set off or counterclaim against Klipspringer in order to justify withholding payment in whole or in part of any amount due.

Unless the contrary is proved, it shall be assumed that the Buyer has sold or otherwise parted with possession of Products delivered by the Seller in the same order as they were delivered, i.e. first in, first out.
Return Of Goods For Credit

Where goods have been made to order and or supplied by an external supplier, Klipspringer Ltd reserves the right to pass on any additional costs which may be applicable. Products returned for credit must be returned at the cost of the Buyer in a saleable condition in original packaging if applicable. The Goods Return Form must include either the invoice or delivery note number on which the items were purchased before any credit note can be issued. Carriage charge will not be credited or reimbursed.

The above terms do not affect the rights of any Buyer where that Buyer is acting as a consumer and such terms would impact the Buyer’s consumer rights. In such circumstances the Buyer shall have the right of cancellation as provided by law.
Damage, Shortages Or Non-delivery
27. All Parcels should be inspected for external damage before being accepted and signed for by the Buyer (Customer) or their representative. If damage is found but is minimal and the Buyer is willing to accept the delivery, then the damage must be reported to the delivery driver to record such damage before the buyer signs to accept the delivery. Photographic evidence may also be advised, as parcels accepted as in good condition will not be claimable if contents are later found to be damaged due to external damage not reported. If the Buyer or their representative believes damage may have also resulted in internal damage to the products the Buyer has purchased, then the Buyer or their representative may refuse to accept delivery. Please advise Klipspringer as soon as possible after a delivery rejection, so a replacement order can be processed.
28. If damage to items is found whilst unpacking, then please notify Klipspringer by phone +44 (0)1473 461800 and in writing via email to email@example.com within 48 hours of delivery or as soon as discovered. Photographic evidence will also be required.
