Each Contract between the Customer and Dawson & Frank Tiles will consist of the Order, the Terms and Conditions and such other specific terms as the two parties shall agree in writing.

Payments

Dawson & Frank Tiles accepts most major Credit & Debit Card payments via our on-line website. These payments are Credit checked and final payment authorisation given, via appointed and accredited 3rd Party Credit Agencies. The Company cannot take any responsibility for the non-authorisation of on-line payments howsoever caused or for any subsequent delay in delivery, when authorisation is queried or additional Credit checking processes are involved.

Credit Checking routines require that the Debit or Credit Card used, is registered to the appropriate person (Buyer). Should the credit authorisation fail, Dawson & Frank Tiles reserve the sole right to employ additional Credit checking measures in order to confirm or qualify the authenticity of the Buyer. Dawson & Frank Tiles cannot accept any liability for any delay, or cost incurred by the Buyer as a result of a delay in the Credit authorisation process.

If Payments are declined or queried by the appointed and accredited 3rd Party Credit checking agency, Dawson & Frank Tiles reserve the sole right to employ additional Credit checking measures in order to confirm or qualify the authenticity of the Buyer. Dawson & Frank Tiles cannot accept any liability for any delay, or cost incurred by the Buyer as a result of a delay in the Credit authorisation process.

Orders

As the number of tiles per square yard and square metre is nominal, the Buyer will be responsible for ensuring sufficient quantity of tiles are ordered.

Acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between the Buyer and Dawson & Frank Tiles will take place upon the dispatch to the Buyer of the products ordered, unless we have notified you that we will not accept your order, or you have cancelled it.

Orders are accepted and promises for delivery given, conditionally upon our being able to secure the necessary material and /or goods and without responsibility for delays arising through risks and uncertainties of manufacture, strike, accidents, or other causes beyond our direct control.

Dawson & Frank Tiles reserves the right not to supply the Buyer at the Companies sole discretion.

The Company can only be held responsible for any failure against products supplied, to the extent that the manufacturer of such products is prepared to guarantee the same. All tiles are susceptible to impact damage and this is unrelated to the wearing grade. Tiles can wear and must be protected against grit, movement of appliances and items being dropped on the surface. No tiles are guaranteed against chipping or mis-use. Some variations in size, shape, manufacturing tolerance, shading and pattern are inherent in the manufacture of tiles and therefore Dawson & Frank Tiles accepts no liability. Variations in texture, shade and size can occur from that which is advertised. Dawson & Frank Tiles recommends that a sample is purchased prior to the main order. It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that tiles are of an acceptable shade and size, and satisfactory for their situation.

Any fault, quality or shading issue with the tiles supplied will remain the responsibility of the manufacturer. Dawson & Frank Tiles will accept no responsibility for further or subsequent loss or expense, if the tiles are faulty, or not to the acceptance of the Buyer. Any such issues will be passed to the manufacturers, whereby any claims will become solely the manufacturer’s liability, disclaimers or notes printed on boxes or packaging will become the responsibility of the Buyer to read and accept, prior to use or fixing.

Any claim by the Buyer, which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Goods, or their failure to correspond with specification, shall (whether or not the delivery is refused, by the Buyer) be expected to notify Dawson & Frank Tiles in writing, email or telephone within 2 working days, from delivery. If delivery is refused and the Buyer does not notify Dawson & Frank Tiles accordingly, the Seller shall have no liability for such defect or failure and Dawson & Frank Tiles shall be bound to pay the price as if the Goods had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.

Delivery

Dawson & Frank Tiles respectfully recommends that the Buyer does not book a Tiler or Tradesman, until the goods have been delivered to the desired location. The risk in relation to the goods passes to the Buyer at the point of physical delivery, at the time of delivery.

Dawson & Frank Tiles shall not be liable to the Buyer, or be deemed to be in breach of the Contract by reason of any delay in performing, or if any failure to perform, was due to any cause beyond the Companies reasonable control. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the following shall be regarded, although not exclusively, as causes beyond the Companies control; Act of God, Explosion, Flood, Tempest, Adverse Weather conditions, Fire or Accident, Traffic delays/Road works, War or threat of War, Sabotage, Civil Unrest, Import / Export regulations and embargoes, Fuel availability, Strikes, Industrial action, Raw material availability, Power failure or disruptions and breakdowns in vehicles or machinery.

For the purpose of general appreciation / association, the vehicle making the delivery is likely in most cases to be a large heavy goods vehicle. Failure to communicate relevant information (e.g Narrow roads, Road works, Gravel or uneven driveways, Building sites, High rise apartments (with or without lifts)) to Dawson & Frank Tiles prior to delivery may result in additional costs for the re-supply being incurred by the Buyer and may also increase the re-delivery lead time.

Before fixing, the Buyer should ensure that they are satisfied that the goods supplied, are correct to the original order. All items should be thoroughly unpacked and inspected as soon as possible. Should you have any queries or questions at this stage, relating to the supply, damage, shading or any other fault, please contact us via email or telephone.
