Placing an Order

On receipt of an Order, Thomas Lyte will refer to its stock levels, production and delivery schedule, and will, if it is capable of doing so, accept the Order. Thomas Lyte shall issue an Order Confirmation. The Client must inspect, sign and return the Order Confirmation in order to proceed with the Order. The Order will be confirmed when Thomas Lyte receives the Order Confirmation from the Client, authorised either electronically or by signature. Any Order shall be accepted entirely at the discretion of Thomas Lyte. Thomas Lyte has no obligation to carry out any work prior to receipt of a signed Order Confirmation from the Client.
The Agreement shall be subject to these Conditions to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (including any terms or conditions which the Client purports to apply under any purchase order, Order Confirmation or other document whatsoever and whenever).
It is the Client’s obligation to ensure that the terms of its Order Confirmation are complete and accurate.
If you are a consumer:
(a) you have 14 days after delivery of the Products to change your mind, this is your cooling-off period. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following: call customer services on +44 (0)207 751 8844 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you email us, please provide your name, address, details of the Order and, where available, your phone number and email address. You may use the model cancellation form attached to these Conditions (but it is not obligatory).
Please note that the cooling-off period does not apply to Bespoke Products or Personalising, and you will not be able to cancel an Order for Bespoke Products or Personalising, unless such Bespoke Products are faulty on delivery.
(b) if you change your mind during the cooling-off period, you have to return the Product to us within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind. Products must be in a re-saleable condition and undamaged (unless faulty on delivery), and in their original and undamaged packaging.
(c) we do not provide pre-paid return labels for any returns. Where you return Products because you have changed your mind, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us (for example, postal or courier charges). Where you are returning the Product because it is faulty, we will reimburse standard postage paid. We are not able to reimburse you if you use a special service. You can send the Product back to us using an established delivery service. If you do this, you should keep a receipt or other evidence from the delivery service that proves you have sent it and when you sent it. If you do not do this and we do not receive the Products at all or within a reasonable time we will not refund you the Fee.
Altering an Order
It is understood that Thomas Lyte will prepare each Order in reliance upon the information contained in the Order Confirmation. Should the Client subsequently wish to change its order, Thomas Lyte will endeavour to amend the Order to take this into account, and, if possible, will not charge for the alteration to the Order.
Should the Client wish to amend its Order, and it is not possible to do so without the incurrence of extra costs, Thomas Lyte shall be entitled to adjust the Fee to take into account any change made to an Order (unless the Client decides to forego the change, in which case the original Fee will apply). Examples of situations where further costs will be unavoidable include, without limitation:
(a) where the Client wishes to materially alter the design of a Bespoke Product;
(b) where Products have been Personalised and the Client subsequently wishes to alter either the Personalising or the choice of Product; or
(c) where Products have been Gift-wrapped and the Client wishes to amend its Order in a way that requires the Products to be opened, and Gift-wrapped again.
Should the Client wish to amend its Order and it is not possible for Thomas Lyte to accommodate the change for any reason, Thomas Lyte will supply the Client’s original Order.
The Client’s Obligations
The Client will provide at its own expense all documents, information, items and materials in any form that Thomas Lyte shall reasonably require to provide the Products and/or Services.
The Client shall be responsible for signing-off any artwork and / or copy prior to the manufacture of Bespoke Products and / or Personalising of Products.
The Client must not request any Bespoke Products or Personalising that:
(a) is defamatory of any person;
(b) is obscene, offensive, hateful or inflammatory;
(c) is intended to bully, insult, intimidate or humiliate; or
(d) infringes any copyright, database right or trade mark of any other person.
In addition to any other remedy available to Thomas Lyte, the Client will indemnify and hold harmless Thomas Lyte in full and on demand from and against all direct and indirect damages, losses, expenses or liabilities (including reasonable legal fees and costs), interest and penalties incurred by Thomas Lyte howsoever arising whether wholly or in part resulting directly or indirectly as a result of, or in connection with, Thomas Lyte’s use of the Client IPRs in accordance with this Agreement.
Thomas Lyte’s obligations
Once the Order is confirmed, Thomas Lyte will obtain the Client’s written approval prior to manufacturing any Bespoke Products and / or Personalising any Products either in writing, electronically or verbally.
If Thomas Lyte incorrectly deviates from approved artwork or copy, Thomas Lyte will, subject to stock levels, redo the affected part of the Client’s Order at no extra charge, and will pay any excess on the delivery charge caused by having to use an expedited delivery service. If Thomas Lyte cannot supply the same Products owing to depleted stock levels, it will offer the Client the choice of choosing alternative Products of equal value, or cancelling the Order and refunding any Fees paid.
If Thomas Lyte supplies incorrect Products to the Client, it will, subject to stock levels, rectify the mistake at no extra charge to the Client.
Thomas Lyte reserves the right to amend any specification in the Order Confirmation if necessary to comply with any applicable law or regulatory requirement, or if the amendment will not materially affect the nature or quality of the Products and/or Services, and Thomas Lyte shall notify the Client in any such event.
Thomas Lyte shall hold all Client Materialsin safe custody at its own risk and maintain the Client Materials in good condition until returned to the Client, and not dispose of or use the Client Materials other than in accordance with the Client’s written instructions or authorisations.
Thomas Lyte warrants that on delivery and for a period of 12 (twelve) months from delivery, the Products shall be free from material defects in workmanship.
The warranties set out in this Agreement are the only warranties which shall be given by Thomas Lyte and all warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Agreement.
Supply of Services
Thomas Lyte shall use reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates for the Services specified in the Order Confirmation, but any such dates shall be estimates only and time shall not be of the essence for the performance of the Services.
Thomas Lyte warrants to the Client that the Services will be provided using reasonable care and skill.
Delivery of Products
The Order shall set out whether Thomas Lyte shall deliver the Products or the Client shall collect the Products.
Where the Order sets out that Thomas Lyte shall deliver the Products, Thomas Lyte shall deliver the Products applying the Incoterm stipulated in the Order (and if no Incoterm is stipulated Delivered at Place (DAP) (Incoterms 2020)) at the location set out in the Order or such other location as the parties shall agree in writing.
Where the Order sets out that the Client shall collect the Products, the Client shall collect and take delivery of the Products from the location set out in the Order or such other location as the parties shall agree in writing.
Delivery of the Products shall be completed on the Products’ arrival at the delivery location.

(b) the Client will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. The Client should contact their local customs office for further information before placing an Order;
(c) the Client must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. Thomas Lyte will not be liable or responsible if the Client breaks any such law.
Any times and dates specified by Thomas Lyte for delivery of the Products are intended to be an estimate only and time for delivery shall not be of the essence.
Subject to clause 9, if for any reason the Client does not accept delivery of, or collect, any of the Products when they are ready for delivery, or Thomas Lyte is unable to deliver the Products on time because the Client has not provided appropriate instructions, documents, licences or authorisations then:
(a) the Products will be deemed to have been delivered, risk passing to the Client (including for loss or damage caused by Thomas Lyte’s negligence); and
(b) Thomas Lyte may store the Products until actual delivery whereupon the Client shall be liable for all related costs and expenses (including without limitation storage and insurance).
Deemed acceptance of Products
Where the Client is a business customer, the Client will be deemed to have accepted the Products as being in accordance with the Agreement unless:
(a) within 3 days of the date of delivery of the Products, the Client notifies Thomas Lyte in writing of any defect or other failure of the Products to conform with the Agreement (which would be apparent upon reasonable inspection and testing of the Products within 3 days); or
(b) the Client notifies Thomas Lyte in writing of any defect or other failure of the Products to conform with the Agreement within a reasonable time where the defect or failure would not be so apparent within 3 days of the date of delivery,
failing which the Client shall not be entitled to reject the Products and Thomas Lyte shall have no liability for such defect or failure, and the Client shall be bound to pay the price as if the Products had been delivered in accordance with the Agreement.
Thomas Lyte’s failure to deliver Products
If Thomas Lyte fails to deliver the Products, Thomas Lyte’s liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Client in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Products. Thomas Lyte shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Products to the extent that such failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event, the Client’s failure to provide Thomas Lyte with adequate delivery instructions for the Products or any relevant instruction related to the supply of the Products or the Client’s breach of the Agreement.
Passing of Risk and Legal Title
The Products shall be at the risk of the Client from the time of delivery.
Full legal, beneficial and equitable title to and property in the Products shall remain vested in Thomas Lyte (even though they have been delivered and risk has passed to the Client) until:
(a) payment in full, in cash or cleared funds, for all the Products has been received by Thomas Lyte; and
(b) all other money payable by the Client to Thomas Lyte on any other account or under the Agreement or any other contract has been received by Thomas Lyte.

(a) invoices for deposits on receipt of the invoice; and
(b) any other invoices within 30 days of the date of the invoice.

Our liability for loss or damage suffered by you if you are a consumer
Thomas Lyte is not responsible for losses you suffer caused by us breaking this contract unless the loss is:
(a) It was not obvious that it would happen and nothing you said to us before we accepted your order meant we should have expected it (so, in the law, the loss was unforeseeable);
(b) caused by a delaying event outside our control;

(d) a business loss. Our liability for any loss you suffer in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession is limited, as described in the section entitled “Our liability for loss or damage suffered by you if you are a”
