8. Delivery & Payment
Turnaround is measured in Working Days, defined as days on which the clearing banks in the City of London are open for normal business. For orders made on a Guaranteed Turnaround service (being orders guaranteed to be ready within a certain period (the “Guaranteed Period”)), delivery (as more particularly described in paragraph 9(b) below) will be made no later than 10pm on the last Working Day of the Guaranteed Period. Should loyaltyMATTERS fail to deliver within the Guaranteed Period (see also paragraph 10 Variations in quantity), a service “credit” will be awarded up to the value of the order in question (redeemable against future orders within 6 months of issue of the Credit in question) (the “Credit”). The customer will still be obliged to pay in full for the order in respect of which delivery was late, including any of the sums charged specifically for the provision of the Guaranteed Turnaround Service (“the Premium Charges”). Where the late delivery is as the result of the action or inaction of a third party, such as a carrier, loyaltyMATTERS, at their absolute discretion, may elect to extend the Turnaround by one Working Day and the customer shall not be awarded a Credit during this time.
Delivery of work by loyaltyMATTERS shall be deemed to take place upon collection of the work by the customer (where the customer is obliged to collect the work) or (where loyaltyMATTERS is obliged to deliver the work) actual delivery of the work to the customer by loyaltyMATTERS. Where the customer is obliged to collect the work, customer’s failure to collect the work on the day on which loyaltyMATTERS is contractually obliged to have it ready for collection shall be classed as a Customer Delay. Where loyaltyMATTERS is obliged to deliver the work to the customer but the customer provides loyaltyMATTERS with incomplete or incorrect delivery information or is not available to accept delivery, then provided that loyaltyMATTERS has used reasonable endeavours to deliver the work to the customer, a failed delivery shall be classed as a Customer Delay.
In the unlikely event that loyaltyMATTERS deems it necessary to re-print work, the Guaranteed Period shall recommence from the time of loyaltyMATTERS’s confirmation to the customer of its agreement to reprint the work.
Unless otherwise specified the price quoted is for collection of the work from loyaltyMATTERS at 104 Station Parade, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 1HQ. A charge may be made to cover any extra costs involved for delivery to a different address.
Payment: On instruction we require a deposit of between 25 – 50% of the full order value (varies by order value). The balance of payment is due on completion of work and before printing, setting a website live or transmission of email. Credit terms are available, subject to status, on application.
- These services rely on the customer not delaying the progress of the order in any way (which delays include but are not limited to the customer not approving proofs or mock-ups or failing to provide copy or content by the time specified by loyaltyMATTERS or failing to make payment by the time such payment is due) (a “Customer Delay”). In the event of a Customer Delay the customer shall not be awarded a Credit and the customer shall still be obliged to pay the Premium Charges but loyaltyMATTERS shall not be bound to deliver within the Guaranteed Period.
- Should work be suspended at the request of or delayed through any default of the customer including a Customer Delay for a period of 30 days or more loyaltyMATTERS Ltd shall then be entitled to payment in full for the work already carried out, materials specially ordered and other additional costs including storage / hosting (where applicable) and/or services ordered.
- loyaltyMATTERS Ltd shall be entitled to payment in full before the Website will be on-line
- Should expedited delivery be agreed loyaltyMATTERS shall be entitled to make additional charges on a time and materials basis to cover any overtime or any other additional costs involved, including without limitation, the cost of couriers or special delivery post.
- Risk of loss of or damage to work completed by loyaltyMATTERS shall pass to the customer on delivery. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the work to the customer, ownership of and title to the work shall not pass to the customer and shall be retained by loyaltyMATTERS until loyaltyMATTERS has received payment in full in respect of the work.
9. Variations In Print Quantity
Every endeavour will be made to deliver the correct quantity ordered. However some variation is inherent in the print process and it is understood and accepted as reasonable that minor variations are immaterial and that loyaltyMATTERS shall have no liability in respect of such variations. For other variations loyaltyMATTERS’s entire liability will be to award a Credit. The table below sets out the circumstances under which a Credit will be awarded:
|Quantities||No Credit awarded||Pro Rata Credit awarded||1.5x Pro Rata Credit awarded|
|up to 1,000||Shortage up to 10%||11% to 20%||21% to 25%*|
|up to 5,000||Shortage up to 7%||8% to 15%||16% to 23%*|
|up to 20,000||Shortage up to 5%||6% to 12%||13% to 21%*|
|above 20,000||Shortage up to 4%||5% to 10%||11% to 20%*|
* The Customer’s sole remedy in respect of shortages above these quantities (“Additional Shortages”) will be a re-print of the entire shortage quantity of the relevant work, to be undertaken by loyaltyMATTERS within a reasonable period of time. The Customer shall not be entitled to a Credit in respect of an Additional Shortage.
Advice of damage, delay or partial loss of goods in transit or of non-delivery must be given in writing to loyaltyMATTERS and the carrier within three clear days of delivery (or, in the case of non-delivery within 28 days of despatch of the goods) and any claim in respect thereof must be made in writing to loyaltyMATTERS and the carrier within seven clear days of delivery (or, in the case of non-delivery, within 42 days of despatch). All other claims must be made in writing to loyaltyMATTERS within 28 days of delivery. LoyaltyMATTERS shall not be liable in respect of any claim unless the aforementioned requirements have been complied with except in any particular case where the customer proves that (i) it was not possible to comply with the requirements and (ii) advice (where required) was given and the claim made as soon as reasonably possible.
Any claim that the elements detailed in the Order Form have not been provided must be made in writing to loyaltyMATTERS Ltd within 28 days of delivery / the site going live. loyaltyMATTERS Ltd shall not be liable in respect of any claim if the claim in question is notified outside the aforementioned timescale.
