Terms and Conditions

The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000

Contracts for the purchase of goods by a Customer not acting in the course of a business and made over the telephone or through the Chembond website, or by mail order, are, with the exception of certain excepted contracts, subject to The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 ('the Regulations').

If the Regulations apply, Customers may cancel goods purchased from Chembond by sending a written notice of cancellation by post. The notice of cancellation must be delivered within 7 working days of the date of delivery of the goods. The Customer will be responsible for the cost of returning the goods if he or she exercises this right of cancellation under the Regulations. If the Customer does not actually return the goods to Chembond, the Customer is under a duty to make the goods available for collection at the Customer's expense from the address to which they were delivered.

The Customer is under a duty to retain possession of the goods whilst awaiting return to Chembond and to take reasonable care of them during this period.

The Customer will be liable for any loss of or damage to the goods if he or she fails to comply with this obligation. Delivery, Title and Risk Any time or date stated for delivery is an estimate only. Chembond makes every effort to dispatch goods on time, but does not accept liability for failure to deliver within the stated time. If Chembond is unable to deliver the goods within 30 days of the date of the order, the Customer will, as its sole remedy, be entitled to cancel the order and require any monies paid to Chembond in respect of that order to be refunded. In order to cancel, the Customer must send written notice of cancellation to Chembond after the above date but before delivery of the goods or notification from Chembond that the goods are ready for delivery.

Chembond does not accept liability for shortages or damage to deliveries unless the Customer notifies Chembond of the shortage or damage in writing within 7 days of receipt of the delivery The Customer has to accept the goods when they are ready for delivery. Delivery is deemed to take place when the goods are delivered to the Customer's nominated address, whereupon the risks of loss, breakage and all damage and all other risks shall pass to the Customer.

Title in the goods does not pass to the Customer until payment is received in full by Chembond. If the Customer cannot accept delivery, Chembond may at its option: (a) store and insure the goods at the Customer's expense and risk or (b) sell the goods at the best price reasonably obtainable and (after deducting reasonable storage insurance and selling costs) pay to the Customer any excess over the sale price or charge the Customer for any shortfall or (c) re-arrange delivery provided that Chembond may charge the Customer for the additional delivery costs incurred.

The Customer may request a Proof of Delivery, provided that this request is made in writing within 3 months of the date of delivery and Chembond shall use reasonable endeavours to provide such proof. Thereafter, delivery shall be deemed to have been successfully completed.

Errors and Omissions

Chembond makes every effort to ensure that all prices and descriptions quoted in its catalogue and on its website are correct and accurate. However, the frenetic tempo of e-commerce makes it inevitable that mistakes will occasionally occur. In the case of a manifest error or omission, Chembond will be entitled to rescind the contract, notwithstanding that it has already accepted the Customer's order and/or received payment from the Customer.

Chembond's liability in that event will be limited to the return of any money the Customer has paid in respect of the order. In the case of a manifest error in relation to price, the Customer will be entitled to purchase the goods by paying the difference between the quoted price and the correct price, as confirmed in writing by Chembond after the manifest error has been discovered.
