1. Information About Us
1.1 We are a partnership trading as Industrial Engines and our address is Wilton Road Industrial Estate, Humberston, Grimsby, DN36 4AW.
2. Ordering Products From Our Site
2.1 By placing an order through our Site, you confirm that:
(a) you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
(b) you are at least 18 years old;
2.2 Please note that the use of our Site to purchase goods is limited to the Products that are displayed on the Site. If you want to enquire about any other products or if you want to order customised products, please contact our offices on the email address or telephone number shown above.
3. How The Contract Is Formed Between You And Us
3.1 Please note that your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order (Order Acknowledgement). Your order will be accepted by us when we send you the Order Acknowledgement. The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we accept your order in this way.
3.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products which we have confirmed in the Order Acknowledgement. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until we have issued a further Order Acknowledgement. Each order that you place with us which we accept by sending you an Order Acknowledgement will form a separate contract between us on these terms and conditions for the Products you have ordered.
4. Cancellation By Us
4.1 If, for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we have insufficient stock to deliver the Products you have ordered, we will notify you by email and set out details of any alternative Products that are available to you.
4.2 Where you are not willing to accept any alternative Product we offer or if there are no reasonable alternatives available, we may cancel your contract in respect of those Products by notifying you by email and we will credit your account with any sum charged to you under the Contract for those Products as soon as possible, but in any event within 30 days of your order.
5. Delivery of the Products to you
See our separate Delivery Policy.
6. Price and Payment
6.1 The price of the Products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error or otherwise as agreed at the point of purchase.
6.2 Payment for all Products must be by the method specified on our Site. We will process your payment when we send you the Order Acknowledgement. We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the Products and any delivery charges before the Products can be dispatched to you.
6.3 Product prices exclude VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
6.4 Our Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our order procedures. Where a Product’s correct price is greater than our stated price then, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price and we may cancel your Contract by notifying you by email.

8.3 We try to ensure that pictures of the Products on our Site are as accurate as possible, but technical limitations and slight variations between the pictures and the Products themselves must be expected.
