(a) 'Chambers Contact' means the person nominated from time to time by Chambers as your point of contact in relation to the Item; 

(b) 'Item' means any item or product, including any packaging and instructions as are specified in the Item Order Form;

3. Product Orders and Payment

3.1 You understand and accept that Chambers will not accept orders in respect of certain bespoke Items unless they relate to a Qualifying Firm or Qualifying Individual.

3.2 Item Charge does not include delivery charges. Our estimate delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm and submit the Item Order Form and will be confirmed when we email you to accept your order.


4. The Items

4.1 Any illustrations of the Items in a Publication (including our website) are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that the hard copy print or your device's display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Items. The colour of your Items may vary slightly from those images.

4.2 The packaging of your Items may vary from that shown on images in a Publication (including our website).

4.3 We reserve the right to amend the specification of the Items if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements. 

4.4 You acknowledge and accept that the Item is intended for use only in the UK. We do not warrant that the Item complies with the laws, regulations or standard outside the UK.


5. Acknowledgements

5.1 You acknowledge and agree that the entry or inscription of a signature on our delivery note on delivery of the Item to you shall be conclusive evidence that you have examined the Item and that the Item corresponds in every respect with the Item that you will be entitled to receive under these Goods Terms.


6. Delivery

6.1 Delivery will be made to the address specified by you on the completed Item Order Form.

6.2 We will deliver your order to the main entrance of the delivery address.

6.3 Any date provided by Chambers for delivery is no more than an estimate, and Chambers' conformity with such date is not, and shall not in any event or circumstance be or become, of the essence of this agreement.


7. International delivery

7.1 We deliver to the countries worldwide unless prevented from doing so by sanctions, embargos or other legal restrictions (International Delivery Destinations). However, there are restrictions on some items for certain International Delivery Destinations, so please review the information on that page carefully before ordering Items.

7.2 If you order an Item for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.

7.3 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.

7.4 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Items are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.


8. Risk and title

8.1 The risk in the Item shall pass to you on delivery of the Item.

8.2 Title to the Item shall not pass to you until we have received the full amount of the Item Charge and any other sums that are owed by you to us.

8.3 Clause 8.2 shall apply irrespective of whether delivery has been made.


9. Defects

9.1 Chambers may, at our exclusive and unqualified discretion, make good either by repair or by the provision of a replacement, any defect which, following proper use of the Item, appears in the Item within a period of 10 calendar days after the Item has been delivered, provided that:

(a) you notify us in writing of the claimed defect(s) immediately on their appearance; and

(b) we are satisfied that the sole cause of the defect(s) is:

(i) faulty design (other than a design made, furnished or specified by you for which we have disclaimed responsibility in writing), or

(ii) faulty materials, or

(iii) faulty workmanship, and

(c) the Item claimed to be defective is returned to us at your expense within the period stipulated by us, following our receipt of notice in accordance with clause 9.1(a).

9.2 Any repaired or replacement Item shall:

(a) be delivered to you at the original place of delivery; and

(b) be subject in all other respects (mutatis mutandis) to the provisions of these Goods Terms, and

(c) in particular, without limitation and in accordance with the provisions of the Master Terms, save where it would be unlawful to do so, we undertake no responsibility for the condition, quality, physical state or attributes, location, origin, fitness or suitability for any purpose, or conformity with description or sample, of such repaired or replacement Item or any portion, part or component of them.

9.3 As an alternative to the discretion expressed in clause 9.1, and in the event that you have already paid the Item Charge when you notify the claimed defect to us, we may, at our exclusive and unqualified discretion:

(a) refund the Item Charge to you; and thereafter

(b) recover possession of the Item from you.
