4.1 Communicating with the customer.
When placing an order the customer must provide and an email address, that is operational from the moment the order is placed until until the completion of the order. The customer has to ensure that their spam filter settings are adjusted to ensure that emails from Claro Print will be received. This email address will be used for future orders until it the customer sends a notification of change. Claro Print Limited is authorised, but not obligated, to send messages of any kind – also such messages that are essential for the contractual relationship and the correct implementation of the contract – by other means than electronic mail. In particular the customer can neither demand that messages are sent by telephone, letter, and fax or by services of telecommunication systems – e.g. short message services (SMS) – nor can the customer successfully invoke ignorance if messages by such means of communication are missing, when Claro Print Limited has sent the message to the email address according to paragraph 1. Messages from Claro Print Limited, which are sent by email to the email address given according to paragraph 1, are presumed to be received by the customer after they are sent. Claro Print Limited is only responsible for transmission errors if their cause is based on failure of Claro Print Limited’s own systems. The customer is allowed to provide evidence that a message sent has not been received for reasons beyond the customer’s sphere of influence. Claro Print Limited is not obligated to point out to the customer that there is a missing, wrong or an inoperable email address in terms of paragraph 1. However, the customer is allowed to provide evidence that such a message would have been technically feasible and reasonable.

6. The Contract Between Us
6.1 Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us and we will confirm acceptance by sending you an email confirming your order (the Order Confirmation). A legally binding contract between us will be formed only when we send you this Order Confirmation.
6.2 However, you will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any of the Products because the cancellation rights do not apply to the sale of custom-made articles or goods made to a consumer’s specification.
7. Availability & Delivery
7.1 Specified delivery schedules are not be fixed. A fixed schedule must have been expressly designated as such and agreed by Claro Print. As a rule, specified delivery schedules denote planned shipment times.
7.2 The delivery date is dependant upon receipt and confirmation by Claro Print of all data, payments and email notices before the 4 pm Monday to Friday order cut-off point. If the customer has processed payment online then order processing is commenced following electronic confirmation of a successful transaction. The beginning of the delivery time is calculated from receipt of payment confirmation. The delivery period is specified in working days - Mondays to Fridays, excluding weekends and UK public holidays. The standard delivery leadtime is 7 working days and the express delivery lead time is 3 working days.
7.3 The delivery period is regarded as having been observed if the goods have left the plant or, if they can be dispatched or, have been reported as ready for shipment by the end of the delivery period. This will be subject to the customer supplying Claro Print all materials required for the production of the order correctly and on time. Prompt and proper fulfillment by the customer of their obligations is required so that the delivery period is observed.
7.4 If the agreed delivery schedule is not observed by Claro Print, you will first set a reasonable period of grace in writing. You can rescind the Contract if this period of grace expires without result.
8. Risk & Title
8.1 The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. If the goods are ready for dispatch and shipment or acceptance of them is delayed for reasons for which we are not to blame, the risk shall pass to the customer when the customer receives notice that the goods are ready for shipment.
8.2 Ownership of the Products will pass to you only when Claro Print receives full payment of all sums due, including any delivery charges.
9. Price & Payment
9.1 The prices of any Products will be as quoted on the Claro Print website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
9.2 These prices shown exclude VAT and include delivery costs. The costs for shipment will cover once-only dispatch to a single UK mainland delivery address specified by the customer. Where appropriate, VAT is applied at the checkout stage and is clearly indicated prior to completion of the purchase transaction.
9.3 In addition to VAT (where applicable) and delivery costs, Claro Print may charge a fee for processing payment. This fee will depend on the payment method used and if applied will be clearly shown on the website before your order is finalised.
9.4 Claro Print’s website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some items may on occasion be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than the stated price, we will charge the lower amount. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
9.5 Claro Print is under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after it has sent you an Order Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a ‘mis-pricing’.
9.6 Payment for all Products must be by credit card (MasterCard and Visa), debit card (Visa, Visa Electron, Master Card and Maestro), by payment in advance or within the terms of a credit agreement specifically set in place and mutually accepted by both Claro Print Limited and the customer.
9.7 Credit and Debit card details are entered on a secured page to which the customer is transferered using SSL.
9.8 The stated prices apply on the condition that the order data on which the prices are based does not change after conclusion of the Contract. Costs caused by subsequent changes instigated by the customer will be charged separately.
9.9 Claro Print will send invoices solely by email with a qualified electronic signature. By submitting an order the customer agrees to this form of invoicing. Payments will be due regardless of whether and when an invoice is issued.
9.10 Unless specified otherwise on the Order Confirmation, the gross total price will be due for payment immediately after conclusion of the Contract (receipt of the Order Confirmation).
10. Print Data & Obligations To Check It
10.1 We will carry out all print orders solely on the basis of the print data sent by you. Error-free printing is not guaranteed in the case of differing data formats or other specifications. 10.2 You must carefully check the print data to determine whether it is suitable for the order before sending it to us. We will not check the print data and the customer alone will bear the risk of any errors in the printed Products owing to incorrect data supplied.
10.3 At your express request, formats other than those specified in the customer information will be processed, where technically feasible. If errors occur as a result of using these formats, responsibility will be borne by the customer and not by Claro Print.
10.4 We can convert print data not sent in CMYK mode, but such conversion will be at the customer’s risk. Conversion of RGB data or ICC colour profiles will naturally result in deviations in colour from the original and, again, liability for these deviations will lie solely with the customer.
11.1 Obvious defects in delivered goods must be reported to us within 2 weeks of receipt.
11.2 Complaints made solely because you have failed to heed the information on requirements for the print data cannot be raised. This shall apply in particular to printed matter that is based on RGB colours, and in which the resolution is too low or in which fonts that are not embedded are used.
11.3 Slight deviations in colour will not be regarded as defects.
11.4 Short or excess shipments of up to 10 % of the ordered print run that are customary in the trade must be accepted by you, provided they are reasonable. The supplied quantity will be charged.
12. Our Liability
12.1 Claro Print warrants that any Product purchased from us through our website is of satisfactory quality.
12.2 Our liability for any Product purchased through our site is strictly limited to the purchase price of that Product.
12.3 This does not include or limit in any way our liability: a. For death or personal injury caused by Claro Print’s negligence b. Under section 2 (3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 c. For fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation d. For any matter for which it would be illegal for Claro Print to exclude, or attempt to exclude, its liability.
12.4 If the supplied goods are defective or lack warranted qualities, Claro Print – at its discretion – will supply a replacement or remedy the goods, to the exclusion of further warranty claims by the customer. If Claro Print allows the period of grace set for it to elapse without supplying a replacement or rectifying the defect, or if subsequent remedy fails, you can rescind the Contract or demand appropriate reduction in the purchase price, to the exclusion of all other claims. Claro Print will be liable for replacement deliveries and work done on subsequently remedying goods to the same extent as for the original goods.
12.5 If part of the delivery has defects, this will not authorize the customer to object to the entire goods.
12.6 In the event of rescission of the Contract, Claro Print will refund any money received from you within a reasonable time.
13. Ownership, Archiving & Proprietry Rights
13.1 The printing forms or carriers produced and used by Claro Print to produce the goods will remain its property.
13.2 Digital data and other objects required for reuse, as well as semi-finished and finished Products, will not be retained by Claro Print beyond the delivery schedule. Data used for production is not returned to the customer but deleted after shipment.
13.3 Claro Print Products will be created solely on the basis of the customer’s content-related stipulations in the print data that has been sent. Claro Print has no influence on the contents of the printed Products. You represent that you have all rights to use, disseminate and publish the data you have sent, in particular with regard to text and photographic material. You are liable for ensuring that the data you supply does not infringe proprietary rights of third parties and that the contents of printed matter do not violate the applicable law. You will indemnify us without reservation if claims are asserted against Claro Print due to the infringement of the rights of third parties, in particular breaches of copyright, as a result of the use of the data provided by you.
14. Written Communications
Applicable laws require that some of the information or communications Claro Print sends to you should be in writing. When using its website, you accept that communication with Claro Print will be mainly electronic - we will contact you by email. For contractual purposes, you agree to this electronic means of communication and you acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that Claroprint provides to you electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.
All notices by you to Claroprint must be given to Claro Print Limited OR firstname.lastname@example.org. We may give notice to you at either the email or postal address you provide when placing an order, or in any of the ways specified in Paragraph 13. Notice will be deemed received and properly served 24 hours after an email is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that it was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an email, that it was sent to the specified email address.
16. Transfer Of Rights & Obligations
16.1 The Contract between you and Claro Print is binding on both parties and on their respective successors and assignees.

17.3 Claro Print’s performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and it will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. Claro Print will use its reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which its obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
18.1 If Claro Print fails, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of the customer's obligations, or any of these terms and conditions, or if it fails to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which it is entitled, this will not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and will not relieve the customer from compliance with such obligations.
18.2 A waiver by Claro Print of any default will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.
18.3 No waiver by Claro Print of any of these terms and conditions will be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to the customer in writing in accordance with Paragraph 14 above.
19. Severability If any of these terms and conditions, or any provisions of a Contract, are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, they will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions, which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
20. Entire Agreement
20.1 These terms and conditions and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement between Claro Print and the customer in relation to the subject matter of any Contract and supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between Claroprint and the customer, whether oral or in writing.

20.3 Neither of the parties will have any remedy in respect of any untrue statement made by the other, whether orally or in writing, prior to the date of any Contract (unless such untrue statement was made fraudulently), and the other party’s only remedy will be for breach of contract as provided in these terms and conditions.
21. Our Right To Vary These Terms & Conditions
21.1 Claro Print has the right to revise and amend these terms and conditions from time to time.
21.2 You will be subject to the policies and terms and conditions in force at the time that you order Products from us, unless any change to these policies or terms and conditions is required to be made by law or governmental authority (in which case it will apply to orders previously placed by you), or if we notify you of the change to these policies or these terms and conditions before we send you the Dispatch Confirmation (in which case we have the right to assume that you have accepted the change to the terms and conditions, unless you notify us to the contrary within seven working days of receipt by you of the Products).
22. Law & Jurisdiction
Contracts for the purchase of Products through our site will be governed by Scots law. Any dispute arising from, or related to, such Contracts will be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Scottish courts.
23.1 Any installation work undertaken by Claro Print or it's 3rd party contractors will be covered for a period of 6 weeks from completion. If within this period there are issues directly linked to the installation we will take appropriate measures to make good. This does not cover vandalism or weather damage (23.4)
23.2 All risk assessments will be completed directly by our 3rd party installers, any issues raised will be made directly from installer company to client. All issues in relation to RAMS documentation or the appropriate qualifications should be taken up directly between the client and 3rd party installers. A direct contact for the installer will be made available to the client on appropriate paperwork.
23.3 Risk & Liability
During any installation works, the liability shall be the sole responsibility of the installation company and their relevant insurance will be made available to client contact. Once the installation team have left the installation site, the liability shall pass in full to the client and/or the site or building owner.
Any damage to externally installed signage caused by vandalism, poor maintenance, adverse weather (flooding, earthquake, fire, wind, storms, lighting, hail or rain) will not be covered and any re-installation. Claro Print nor it's 3rd party installers are to be held liable for any damage due to any of the above reasons. If damage occurs it will be the sole responsibility of the client to make appropriate arrangements to make safe or repair. This applies even within the 6 week grace period stated in clause 23.1
24.1 The perfect print guarantee is at the absolute discretion of Claro Print and the senior management team. The guarantee will only cover instances of incorrect printing or finishing. It will not include late or missed deliveries, low resolution, typing errors any errors which could have been picked up at the proof stage.
24.2 The level of defects to be considered must be over 10% of the total order, if it affects less than 10% of the total order it will be considered to be acceptable. 10% is the industry standard tolerance. Pictures will be requested showing a wide selection of the total order. These must be clear, realistic images and not blown up to highlight defects. You may be required to send 10% of the order back for checking. This will be at clients cost. Only if the decision to reprint or refund is taken will you be refunded for the cost of mailing.
24.3 If Claro Print decide to uphold the guarantee, we will require all good to be sent back in full, prior to a reprint or refund being instructed. If goods cannot be supplied back in full quantity, we will consider the order having been used and therefor deemed as acceptable by you and thus voiding the claim against the guarantee. The decision to whether to reprint or refund lies directly with Claro Print and is not able to be decided upon by the client.
24.4 A reprint will always be the initial stage, it is our duty to make good any defective work and as such, this will always be the first solution. We reserve the sole right to reprint as many times as required to make good the product and fulfil the order.
24.5 The guarantee covers the printed products only, it will not cover delivery costs, installation issues or costs associated with installation. The guarantee does not cover consequential loss.
24.6 If the decision is taken to refund, this will be refunded in the form of a printing credit. No bank transfer payments will be made if the initial order was printed and delivered albeit incorrectly.
