All goods supplied by Stone Marketing Ltd are supplied on a firm sale basis.

While every effort will be made to deliver items on time, no guarantee regarding specific dates should be inferred. Stone Marketing does not accept liability for any loss or damage resulting from delivery delays, regardless of the cause. If the buyer in the United Kingdom notices a shortage or damage to the delivered goods, they must inform the seller in writing within 3 days of receiving the items. For deliveries outside the United Kingdom, any complaint regarding shortage or damage should be reported in writing by the buyer to the seller and the Forwarding Agent within 7 days of receipt. If there is a complaint about the failure to deliver invoiced goods, the buyer must notify the seller in writing within 21 days of the goods’ arrival at the designated destination.

 

2. Cancellation or Postponement of Delivery

Customers may not cancel or amend any outstanding order for goods already made, or in process of being made at the time, or for goods to be made from materials specifically ordered for the execution of such orders except by mutual written agreement and then only on terms which would fully indemnify the seller.

Any goods previously ordered where delivery is postponed by the buyer for 30-days beyond the original date will be invoiced and payment required under the terms of clause 5 herein.

 

3. Claims

In the event that products provided by Stone Marketing Limited are found to be defective in material or workmanship upon inspection, the Company agrees to either replace the items or refund the buyer the purchase price. The Company’s liability will not exceed the cost of replacing the goods or the price paid by the buyer, depending on the Company’s discretion.
