The Purchaser shall be deemed thereafter to have contracted under these conditions. This Agreement represents the entire agreement between the Purchaser and ABT Office Supplies Ltd. Each party warrants that no representation not recorded in this Agreement has been made which has induced it to enter into this Agreement. No failure, delay, relaxation or indulgence on the part of either party in exercising any power or right conferred upon such party in this Agreement shall operate as a waiver of such power or right. Any other conditions, warranties and representations whatsoever made either orally or in writing given expressly or implied shall be excluded from these terms and conditions unless agreed, in advance, and in writing, by AB Technology (London) Limited.
In the event of a Purchaser canceling a contract with AB Technology
(London) Limited after placing their purchase order and prior to the
delivery of goods, then AB Technology (London) Limited reserves the
right to levy a charge of up to 25% (twenty five per cent) of the full
amount of the contract. Any alterations, modification or variation of
a written order under the terms and conditions of this contract may
only be accepted by AB Technology (London) Limited when effected in

modification or variation being levied for the account of the Purchaser.

If prices on the website are not correct due to any errors or omissions on our part, we will inform you of the correct price and you will have the right to amend or cancel your order. If an item’s correct price is higher than our quoted price, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. However, we might at our discretion decide to honour the lower (incorrect) price and send the item in order to avoid causing you any inconvenience. The prices advertised on this Site are for orders placed through our site facility and may differ from those listed in AB Technology catalogues.
