These Terms and the documents referenced herein are all the terms of the contract (the “Contract”) between FT and the Purchaser in respect of the goods and/or services to be supplied, and these Terms supersede all previous representations, negotiations, arrangements and agreements.

2 QUOTATION AND ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS

2.1  All orders made by the Purchaser must be in writing via email, fax or post (the “Order”).

2.2  These Terms apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms that the Purchaser seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.

2.3  The Order constitutes an offer by the Purchaser to purchase the goods in accordance with these Terms. The Purchaser is responsible for ensuring that the terms of the Order and any applicable specification agreed pursuant to clause 6.2, are complete and accurate.

2.4  The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted, and consequently the Contract shall come into existence, when FT issues a written acceptance of the Order, or if earlier, when the goods are dispatched.

2.5  The written acceptance of the Order, referred to in clause 2.4 above, is generally issued by a message sent to the Purchaser by email.

2.6  Each Order accepted by FT will be deemed to form a separate Contract to which these Terms shall apply and any waiver or any act of non-enforcement or variation of any term or part thereof on the part of FT shall not bind or prejudice FT in relation to the application of these terms to any other order, instalment or delivery whensoever arising.

15 LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY

15.1 Nothing in this Contract shall limit FT’s liability for

15.1.1 personal injury or death caused by its negligence; or

15.1.2 fraudulent misrepresentation.    

15.2 FT shall have no liability in contract, tort (including, without limitation, negligence or misrepresentation) or otherwise howsoever for any loss or damage arising in whole or in part from:

15.2.1 materials provided by, or a design stipulated or specified by the Purchaser;            

15.2.2  overload conditions, faulty maintenance, faulty installation and modifications made without FT’s approval; or

15.2.3  any breach by the Purchaser of its obligations under clause 13.1.

15.3  FT’s liability to the Purchaser, in contract, tort (including, without limitation, negligence or misrepresentation) or otherwise for loss or damage to any tangible property, caused either (1) by defects in the goods resulting from FT’s negligence or (2) by the negligence of FT’s employees shall be limited to a maximum amount of £2,000,000 per event or series of connected events.        

15.4  Subject to clause 15.1, FT shall have no liability in contract, tort (including, without limitation, negligence or misrepresentation) or otherwise howsoever for any of the following losses or damage (whether such losses or damage were foreseen, foreseeable, known or otherwise): 

15.4.1 loss of revenue, loss of actual or anticipated profits (including for loss of profits on contracts), loss of the use of money, loss of anticipated savings, loss of business, loss of opportunity, loss of goodwill, loss of reputation, loss of, damage to or corruption of data;

15.4.3  any indirect or consequential loss or damage howsoever caused (including, for the avoidance of doubt, whether or not such loss or damage is of a type specified in clauses 15.4.1 and 15.4.2 above) whether arising out of, in connection with or in relation to the goods or the supply or non-supply of the goods or otherwise under the Contract.

15.5  Subject to clauses 15.1 to 15.4 above, FT’s total liability in contract, tort (including, without limitation, negligence or misrepresentation) or otherwise whether arising out of, in connection with or in relation to the goods or the supply or non-supply of the goods or otherwise under the Contract for any one event or series of connected events shall be limited to the higher of (i) £25,000 and (ii) the amount payable to the Purchaser for the goods under the corresponding Contract.

15.6  The parties agree that the above limitations of liability are reasonable, particularly in the light of the Purchaser’s obligations under clause 13.5 (in particular, without limitation, clause 13.5.2), and appropriately reflect the balance of risk which the parties consider appropriate and which is reflected in the prices charged by FT. In addition, the cost of obtaining unlimited insurance for all goods supplied is excessive and would result in an increase in the price of the goods supplied and prices are quoted on the basis that the Purchaser takes out its own insurance.

16  CUMULATION OF REMEDIES

The rights and remedies granted to FT in these terms may be exercised by FT in addition to each other, and also in addition to any other rights or remedies that may be available to FT by statute, common-law or otherwise.

17  VARIATIONS

FT reserves the right to vary these standard terms from time to time, provided that any variation that arises following acceptance of the Purchaser's order and prior to the performance of FT's obligations under that order shall be notified to the Purchaser in writing, and shall not take effect until that time.

18  NON-ASSIGNMENT

The Purchaser shall not be entitled to assign, sub-licence, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of its rights and obligations under any order without first obtaining the prior written consent of FT.

19  NOTICES

Notices required to be given under these terms shall not be effective unless in writing and sent to the address of the other party or at such other address as previously notified to the other party in writing.

20  SURVIVING PROVISIONS

The determination of each order howsoever arising shall be without prejudice to any provisions of the Contract (including these conditions) which are to have effect after the date of determination.

21  CONTRACTS (RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES) ACT 1999

None of these Terms are intended to or will operate to confer any benefit under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 on a person other than FT or the Purchaser.

22  HEADINGS

The headings to these terms are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation or construction of any of them.

23  PROPER LAW

The Contract, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, English law, and the parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. Nothing in this clause shall limit the right of FT to take proceedings against the Purchase for non-payment, recovery of goods or breach of these Terms in any other court of competent jurisdiction, nor shall the taking of proceedings in any one or more jurisdictions preclude the taking of proceedings in any other jurisdictions, whether concurrently or not, to the extent permitted by the law of such other jurisdiction.

12.6 In the event that the defect notified by the Purchaser is not covered by the warranties, FTTI may at its discretion offer to correct that defect subject to the Purchaser agreeing to pay FTTI’s costs for such work at FTTI’s then current fee rates.

13 LIMITATIONS OF WARRANTIES

13.1 Whilst FTTI endeavours to ensure the best design, sound materials and good workmanship, all conditions and warranties whether express or implied by statute or otherwise (including but not limited to those as to description, merchantability, compliance with any sample or fitness for purpose of the goods) shall be construed subject to these conditions and, insofar as they are inconsistent with these conditions shall be excluded.

14 CANCELLATION, SUSPENSION AND TERMINATION

14.1 In the event of an order which has been accepted by FTTI being cancelled by the Purchaser, this shall amount to a repudiation of that contract, which FTTI may accept, and in these circumstances the Purchaser shall be liable to indemnify FTTI against all losses (including loss of profit) costs and other expenses and damages (whether direct or consequential) occasioned by such cancellation.

14.2 If:

14.2.1 the Purchaser fails to comply with any of its obligations under this or any contract; or

14.2.2 in the case of an individual, if a petition for a bankruptcy order or an application for a voluntary arrangement is made in respect of the Purchaser or any similar action application or proceeding is taken against the Purchaser in any jurisdiction to which he is subject or the Purchaser is unable to pay his debts within the meaning of s.268 of the Insolvency Act 1986; or

14.3 FTTI shall have the right to terminate this order, and any other orders or agreements with the Purchaser, or to suspend performance of this order or any other order or part of it, but without affecting any other claim right or remedy of FT against the Purchaser.

14.4 FTTI reserves the right to cease or suspend the supply of goods to the Purchaser, including after the Contract is formed in accordance with clause 2, in its absolute discretion when:

14.4.1 the Purchaser's account is overdue; or

14.4.2 in FTTI's absolute discretion FTTI has doubts, howsoever arising, about the continued creditworthiness of the Purchaser.

14.5 Should FTTI be prevented from making delivery or performing any other of its obligations under an order, owing to any circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to earthquake, flood, hurricane, fire, acts of God, war, national emergency, invasion, insurrection, riots, lock-outs, industrial action, picketing, boycott, difficulty in obtaining workmen or materials, breakdown of machinery, or interference or requisitioning by any government department or official, FTTI may by written notice terminate that order or suspend performance without incurring any liability for any loss or damage incurred by the Purchaser.

15 LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY

15.1 Nothing in this Contract shall limit FTTI’s liability for

15.1.1 personal injury or death caused by its negligence; or

15.1.2 fraudulent misrepresentation.    

15.2 FTTI shall have no liability in contract, tort (including, without limitation, negligence or misrepresentation) or otherwise howsoever for any loss or damage arising in whole or in part from:

15.2.1 materials provided by, or a design stipulated or specified by the Purchaser;            

15.2.2  overload conditions, faulty maintenance, faulty installation and modifications made without FTTI’s approval; or

15.2.3  any breach by the Purchaser of its obligations under clause 13.1.

15.3  FTTI’s liability to the Purchaser, in contract, tort (including, without limitation, negligence or misrepresentation) or otherwise for loss or damage to any tangible property, caused either (1) by defects in the goods resulting from FT’s negligence or (2) by the negligence of FT’s employees shall be limited to a maximum amount of £2,000,000 per event or series of connected events.        

15.4  Subject to clause 15.1, FTTI shall have no liability in contract, tort (including, without limitation, negligence or misrepresentation) or otherwise howsoever for any of the following losses or damage (whether such losses or damage were foreseen, foreseeable, known or otherwise): 

15.4.1 loss of revenue, loss of actual or anticipated profits (including for loss of profits on contracts), loss of the use of money, loss of anticipated savings, loss of business, loss of opportunity, loss of goodwill, loss of reputation, loss of, damage to or corruption of data;

15.5  Subject to clauses 15.1 to 15.4 above, FTTI’s total liability in contract, tort (including, without limitation, negligence or misrepresentation) or otherwise whether arising out of, in connection with or in relation to the goods or the supply or non-supply of the goods or otherwise under the Contract for any one event or series of connected events shall be limited to the higher of (i) £25,000 and (ii) the amount payable to the Purchaser for the goods under the corresponding Contract.

15.6  The parties agree that the above limitations of liability are reasonable, particularly in the light of the Purchaser’s obligations under clause 13.5 (in particular, without limitation, clause 13.5.2), and appropriately reflect the balance of risk which the parties consider appropriate and which is reflected in the prices charged by FTTI. In addition, the cost of obtaining unlimited insurance for all goods supplied is excessive and would result in an increase in the price of the goods supplied and prices are quoted on the basis that the Purchaser takes out its own insurance.

16  CUMULATION OF REMEDIES

The rights and remedies granted to FTTI in these terms may be exercised by FTTI in addition to each other, and also in addition to any other rights or remedies that may be available to FTTI by statute, common-law or otherwise.

17  VARIATIONS

FTTI reserves the right to vary these standard terms from time to time, provided that any variation that arises following acceptance of the Purchaser's order and prior to the performance of FTTI's obligations under that order shall be notified to the Purchaser in writing, and shall not take effect until that time.

18  NON-ASSIGNMENT

The Purchaser shall not be entitled to assign, sub-licence, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of its rights and obligations under any order without first obtaining the prior written consent of FTTI.

Notices required to be given under these terms shall not be effective unless in writing and sent to the address of the other party or at such other address as previously notified to the other party in writing.

20  SURVIVING PROVISIONS

The determination of each order howsoever arising shall be without prejudice to any provisions of the Contract (including these conditions) which are to have effect after the date of determination.

21  CONTRACTS (RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES) ACT 1999

None of these Terms are intended to or will operate to confer any benefit under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 on a person other than FTTI or the Purchaser.

22  HEADINGS

The headings to these terms are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation or construction of any of them.

23  PROPER LAW

The Contract, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, English law, and the parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. Nothing in this clause shall limit the right of FTTI to take proceedings against the Purchase for non-payment, recovery of goods or breach of these Terms in any other court of competent jurisdiction, nor shall the taking of proceedings in any one or more jurisdictions preclude the taking of proceedings in any other jurisdictions, whether concurrently or not, to the extent permitted by the law of such other jurisdiction.
