Description of products
Each Product purchased is sold subject to its Product Description. We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of Products appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Value added tax will be added at the checkout or to orders placed offline at the rate ruling on the day the order is placed. Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including Product Descriptions appearing on this Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order. We cannot confirm the price of a Product until your order is accepted in accordance with our Order acceptance policy.
All measurements are given in millimetres, centimetres or inches and are taken from the maximum points of measurement unless otherwise stated.
Martial Art Mats reserves the right to change product specification at any time. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that all graphical representations and descriptions of Goods available from Martial Art Mats correspond to the actual Goods, Martial Art Mats is not responsible for any variations from these descriptions. E & O.E
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.
The technical steps required to create the contract between you and us are as follows:
If you order online, then you place the order for your products on the web-site by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the check-out process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the web-site. We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered. If you require a VAT invoice, please request it in the special instructions or send us an email.
If you order by email, phone, fax, letter or any other means and require a VAT invoice, then please request it.
Your order will be processed once payment in full is made or when an official order from a government body is received e.g. educational establishment, armed forces, police, nhs etc.
If you would like a formal quote before placing an order you can either:
1) place an order online, and not pay for it (please enter in the notes section, “details entered for a quote” or similar), and you will receive an automated purchase order by email which gives a breakdown of costs including VAT – this does not commit you to placing an order with us,
or you can
2) email or phone us requesting a quote / pro-forma invoice which will give a breakdown of costs including VAT and the options of how to make payment by bank transfer, cheque, credit or debit card or PayPal.
If you need a VAT invoice so payment can be made to place an order, please request one by email or phone.
Please check over everything on the email sent after your order is placed, and make sure the information detailed is correct.
If ordered online the subject heading will start with “Your Martial Art Mats order receipt from (and then the date)”.
Offline orders will have subject headings “Order Acknowledgement” / “Invoice” / the same subject heading you sent us an email with.
If there are any discrepancies, please let us know within 48hrs of receiving the confirmation, so our systems can be amended accordingly prior to your order being confirmed.
Failure to do so could result in orders being incorrect, so it is paramount that we have all the correct information, as we cannot be held responsible for mistakes if the order has not been checked and confirmed by yourselves.
If after 48hrs we have received no word from you, we will assume that the order is correct and proceed with the order as it stands on the confirmation.
The completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the date of despatch to you of the Products ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it in accordance with our conditions set out below.
Non acceptance of an order may take place in the following circumstances :
- Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment
