The following General Terms and Conditions, as amended on the date of order, shall exclusively apply to the business relationship between Supplies Distributors SA, of which the registered offices are located at rue Louis Blériot 5, 4460 Grâce-Hollogne, registered with the Liège Trade Registry under the No. 208.795, VAT No. BE 475.286.142 (hereinafter referred to as “SDSA,” “we,” “us”) and the Buyer.

§ 2 Contract conclusion

Orders may be placed exclusively online at the website of the GoreApparel.co.uk Online Shop at http://www.goreapparel.co.uk. Before placing the order the Buyer may review and change the order data at anytime. Orders of the Buyer constitute a binding offer to us to enter into a purchase agreement. However, orders may be placed and transmitted only, if the Buyer accepts these General Terms and Conditions by placing a checkmark in the appropriate check box, thereby including them into his offer. Once the Buyer has placed an order with SDSA, we will send him an e-mail confirming receipt and listing details of the order (confirmation of receipt of order). This confirmation of receipt of order does not constitute acceptance of the offer, but is only intended to inform the Buyer that we have received his order. A contract of sale comes about only when we ship the ordered product to the Buyer and confirm shipping with a second e-mail (shipping confirmation). No contract of sale comes about for products from one and the same order not listed in the confirmation of receipt of order. SDSA shall be the contracting party. SDSA does not offer products for purchase by minors.

Please note that all products will only be sold in normal household quantities. This applies to the quantities of ordered products that form part of one order as well as to the placement of several orders for the same product, each of which is for a normal household quantity.

The offer is only valid while stocks last. We reserve the right to make changes to and correct errors in our website.

We will refund the full purchase price and pay for standard shipping costs. If you want us to replace the merchandise, please return the ordered merchandise to us and place a new order.

It includes the product’s price as well as any shipping and delivery costs. Bank fees and fees, that become due when paying by credit card are not included in the price listed on the confirmation of receipt of order.

§ 5 Delivery

Information about delivery times is not binding. The Buyer shall not be entitled to compensation or contract cancellation due to a delay in delivery, unless the delay was caused by SDSA or a partner company, and can be attributed to intent or gross negligence. If the delay in delivery exceeds 30 days, the Buyer shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract.

If SDSA is unable to deliver the ordered merchandise through no fault of its own, because our supplier does not fulfil its contractual obligations, we shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract vis-à-vis the Buyer. In this case the Buyer will be advised immediately of the unavailability of the product. The Buyer’s statutory claims shall be unaffected thereby.

Insofar as it is impossible to effect delivery to the Buyer, because the delivered merchandise does not fit through the Buyer’s entrance door, front door, or the staircase, or because the Buyer cannot be found at the address he indicated, although the Buyer was apprised of the delivery date within a reasonable period of time, the Buyer shall bear the costs for the unsuccessful delivery.

§ 6 Shipping options, costs and handling

Our shipping options and costs for domestic deliveries:

Shipping Method Transit Time Price incl. VAT
Standard 2-3 Business Days £7.95
Express 1 Business Day £19.95

As a rule, all our shipments are handled by DHL. We do not handle deliveries to P.O. Box or Poste Restante addresses. New orders will only be dispatched if all previous shipments have been paid. You must notify the carrier of any transport damage as soon as you receive the merchandise.

We will process your order as soon as we receive it. As a rule, orders received before 14:00 will be handed over to DHL for shipment on the same day. Orders are only shipped on business days. Please note that the above mentioned transit times exclude weekends and public holidays.

  • PayPal: The amount will be debited from your bank account by PayPal.

If the Buyer is in default, SDSA shall be entitled to charge default interest in the amount of 5% p.a. above the base lending rate announced by the European Central Bank. If SDSA can prove that it incurred a higher damage caused by the default, we shall be entitled to assert these claims.

The Buyer shall have the right to offset..

§ 9 Retention of title

The delivered merchandise shall remain the property of SDSA until payment is effected in full.

§ 10 Liability for defects

If the object of sale is defective, the statutory provisions shall apply. Warranty claims on the part of the Buyer may not be assigned. Unless specified otherwise below, further claims on the part of the Buyer – for whatever legal reasons – shall be excluded. Thus, SDSA shall not be responsible for damages that do not involve the delivery item itself; in particular, SDSA shall not be liable for lost profit or for other financial losses incurred by the Buyer. Insofar as the contractual liability by SDSA is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of employees, representatives or vicarious agents.

The aforementioned limitation of liability shall not apply to the extent that the cause of damage is based on intent or gross negligence, or if personal injury is involved. It shall also not apply, if the Buyer asserts claims regulated by law.

If supplementary performance was affected by way of replacement delivery, the Buyer shall be obligated to return the earlier delivered merchandise within 30 days to SDSA at the expense of SDSA. The defective merchandise must be returned based on the statutory provisions. SDSA reserves the right to assert damages under the conditions regulated by law.

The statute of limitations shall be twenty-four months, calculated from the date of delivery.
