- After Customer places an order, Customer will receive an order confirmation from ADL with a summary of the order. However, this does not mean that the order has been accepted. ADL’s acceptance of the order will take place as described in condition 3.4.
- The Contract between Customer and ADL shall only be concluded after the Artwork (defined in condition 5.1 below) has been transmitted by Customer and ADL has sent a separate order confirmation via e-mail (Acceptance of Order). ADL will send the Confirmation via e-mail within five days after receiving the Artwork.
- The application of the UN Sales Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) shall not apply to the Contract.
- Status of Customer
- For the purposes of these Terms, Customer shall be deemed to be purchasing as a business if it enters into the Contract, or holds itself out as entering into the Contract, in the course of a business and/or it is purchasing Products which are not of a type ordinarily supplied for private use or consumption.
- If Customer is purchasing as a consumer:
- 4.2.1.Customer may only purchase Products from the Website if Customer is at least 18 years old; and

- 4.3.2.Customer acknowledges and agrees that these Terms and any document expressly referred to in them constitute the entire agreement between ADL and Customer. Customer acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by or on behalf of ADL which is not set out in these Terms or any document expressly referred to in them.
- Content of the Order and Proof Requirements
- ADL completes all orders solely on the basis of print data and information (Artwork) submitted by Customer. Customer must ensure it has read and understood its responsibilities contained in these Terms.
- Customer must check the Artwork carefully against the Format Requirements which are set out in more detail on the Artwork guide https://www.asksigndisplay.co.uk/home/design-and-artwork/ before submitting to ADL. Except as otherwise set out in this condition 5, ADL will not review any Artwork for compliance with the Format Requirements or otherwise for any typographical errors.
- When ADL has received the Artwork from Customer, ADL will perform a ‘Standard Artwork Check’ on every order submitted by Customer. The extent to which ADL checks the Artwork is detailed on the Artwork guide https://www.asksigndisplay.co.uk/home/design-and-artwork/
- If, when ADL performs the Standard Artwork Check, ADL discovers that the Artwork supplied by Customer is defective or does not comply with the Format Requirements, ADL will notify Customer and request Customer either provides corrected Artwork or permits ADL to edit the Artwork to the extent necessary to comply with the Format Requirements before ADL completes the order.
- In the event that Customer notifies ADL that it wishes to proceed with the order without correcting any defects in the Artwork, or amending such Artwork so it complies with the Format Requirements, Customer does so at its own risk.
- If additional costs arise due to the inaccuracy of the Artwork, these will be borne by the Customer.
- Where Customer has not submitted Artwork in CMYK mode in accordance with the Format Requirements, ADL shall be entitled to convert the Artwork to ensure it complies with the Format Requirements. In these circumstances, the liability for any resulting colour deviations lies solely with the Customer. By transmitting the Artwork in any other mode than the specified CMYK mode, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that the conversion is carried out at Customer’s own risk.
- For the avoidance of doubt, ADL will not accept any responsibility or liability for any colour variations, irregularities or other defects whatsoever of the Products ordered by Customer which are caused as a result of Artwork not complying with the Format Requirements, including (but not limited to) graphics and images, colours and colour mode, cut, fonts and lines.
- ADL reserves the right to refuse any orders and/or terminate any Contracts where the transmitted Artwork contains defamatory, pornographic, fascist, radical content or any other material which is obscene, offensive, hateful or inflammatory.

End of revocation policy

- The right of revocation shall not exist for distance sales contracts
- for the supply of goods which are not prefabricated and the production of which is determined by an individual choice or decision of the consumer or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer.
- If the printed materials are produced via the ADL website according to customer specifications, no legal right of revocation shall exist. No contractual right of revocation is granted.
- Applicable laws require that some of the information or communications ADL send to Customer should be in permanent form and for this purpose, ADL shall confirm such information to Customer by email, which Customer accepts is a permanent form of communication.
- When registering to use the Website, Customer shall provide an e-mail address for communications between ADL and Customer. Customer shall ensure such email address is valid and functioning. In particular, Customer shall ensure that the settings of the spam filter on its e-mail account allows the receipt by Customer of e-mails sent by ADL.
- In the case of Customers purchasing as a business:
- 7.3.1.Customer acknowledges and agrees that this e-mail address shall be stored by ADL and used in respect of any future orders received from the Customer until revoked or modified by the Customer;
- 7.3.2.any notice or communication sent by ADL to Customer, or by Customer to ADL will be deemed received and properly served (i) immediately when posted on the Website (ii) in the case of e-mails, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent, or (iii) in the case of letter, three days after the date of posting.
- Price of the Products and Delivery Charges
- The price of the Products will be as quoted on the Website.
- ADL takes all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the Website. However, if ADL discovers an error in the price of Products(s) ordered by Customer, condition 8.5 will apply.
- Prices for the Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which ADL has confirmed with an Order Confirmation.
- The price of the Products includes packaging but excludes delivery charges.
- The Website contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite ADL’s best efforts, some of the Products on the Website may be incorrectly priced. If ADL discover an error in the price of the Products Customer has ordered, ADL will inform Customer of this error and ADL will give Customer the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling the order. ADL will not process Customer’s order until it has received Customer’s instructions. If ADL is unable to contact Customer using the contact details Customer provided during the order process, ADL will treat the order as cancelled and notify Customer in writing. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by Customer as a mis-pricing, ADL do not have to provide the Products to Customer at the incorrect (lower) price.
- The Customer will be charged additionally for any subsequent changes requested by the Customer, including if this request results in machine downtime or additional production costs in the event of a complete or partial cancellation (except if the cancellation is pursuant to the consumer’s rights under condition 6). Additional charges are also payable if Customer requests repeated samples due to a slight deviation from the template.
- If Customer obtains a quotation for Products from ADL either by e-mail or through the Website, this does not constitute an offer by ADL and shall only be valid for a period of 14 days from the date of issue. All quotations are subject to the condition that the order details underlying the quotation at the time of issue remain unchanged, and Artwork to be received from Customer is received within one week of Customer placing the order.
- The price of the Products automatically includes VAT (if any, which shall be at the sole discretion of ADL) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the order and the date of delivery, ADL will adjust the VAT payable by Customer, unless Customer has already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
- If Customer believes that the Product it has purchased should be zero rated for VAT purposes, Customer shall notify ADL immediately following receipt of the Order Confirmation and confirm the reasons for this. ADL will investigate such claim and if it considers (acting reasonably) that such Product should be zero rated for VAT purposes, ADL shall reimburse Customer for any overpayment made in respect of VAT.
- Customers who are registered for VAT purposes must provide to ADL a valid VAT registration number at the time of placing an order. ADL is entitled to retain such information and apply this VAT registration number to any subsequent orders until ADL is notified by Customer in writing that the VAT registration number is no longer valid.
- Customer may pay for Products at the time of placing the order using a debit card or credit card.
- No other payment methods or terms shall apply unless expressly agreed with ADL In writing.
- ADL shall issue a separate invoice for each Product ordered by Customer.
- In the event that Customer makes a payment in error, it is the responsibility of Customer to notify ADL and request ADL reimburse such sum. Subject to confirmation by ADL that it has received such overpayment, ADL shall reimburse the sum to Customer. Where the repayment of any such sum by ADL is subject to an additional charge, ADL shall be entitled to deduct the amount of any charge from the sum to be reimbursed.
- Delivery and Production
- Delivery is based upon the production time taken by ADL to manufacture the Products and the delivery time to ship the Products to Customer.
- ADL will endeavour to deliver the Products as soon as possible after Customer’s order has been accepted and ADL has completed the production of the Products.
- ADL will advise Customer of the estimated date when the production of the Products shall be completed, however Customer accepts that time is not of the essence in relation to any estimated dates given by ADL.
- For the avoidance of doubt, ADL shall not commence production on the Products until it has received payment in full for the Products and it is in receipt of the final Artwork following the completion of a Standard Artwork Check.
- Delivery will be completed when ADL delivers the Products to the address given by Customer during the order process.
- The Products will be at the risk of the Customer from completion of delivery. Customer shall only own the Products once ADL has received payment in full for the Products.
- Delivery of the Products shall be performed during normal business hours, being Monday to Friday 8am to 7pm.
- ADL may deliver the Products by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract and ADL shall pay the additional shipping charges relating to any subsequent instalments. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle Customer to cancel any other instalment.
- For the avoidance of doubt, ADL shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Products that is caused by an Event Outside the Control of ADL or Customer’s failure to provide ADL with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Products.
- Event Outside the Control of ADL
- ADL shall not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of its obligations under a Contract that is caused by an Event Outside the Control of ADL. An Event Outside the Control of ADL is defined below in condition 12.2.
- An Event Outside the Control of ADL means any act or event beyond ADL’s reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.
- If an Event Outside the Control of ADL takes place that affects the performance of ADL s obligations under a Contract:
- 12.3.1.ADL will notify Customer as soon as reasonably possible; and
- 12.3.2.ADL’s obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of its obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside the Control of ADL.
- If the Event Outside the Control of ADL extends beyond four weeks, Customer shall be entitled to cancel the Contract.
- Where Customer’s Products arrive in a damaged or defective condition, or Customer claims the Products are not as described, Customer must notify ADL immediately and, in any event, no later than 7 days following delivery of the Products. Subject to Customer giving ADL a reasonable opportunity of examining such Products and Customer (if asked to do so by ADL) returning such Products to ADL at ADL’s cost, ADL will provide a full refund of the price paid by Customer including return postage and packing.
- If Customer returns any Products to ADL and ADL can prove they were not damaged or defective when Customer received them, or are not described, ADL may send them back to Customer, claiming the cost of return postage and no refund shall be due to Customer.
- For the avoidance of doubt, ADL shall not be liable to accept any returned Products from Customer in circumstances where the Product is based on Artwork produced by Customer which fails to comply with the Format Requirements stipulated by ADL.
- The details communicated are not guaranteed characteristics, but describe or characterise a specific service. Insofar as the product can still be used for its contractually intended purpose, commercial deviations are permissible. Particularly in the case of coloured reproductions in all production processes including within products in the same order and within the same print run, small colour deviations are not defects. This also applies to colour deviations on any order previously printed with ADL. The same applies to comparisons between other documents (e.g., digital proofs, colour proofs) and the final product. A certain orientation of the paper cannot be guaranteed. Due to production or machinery, unavoidable minor differences in cutting and folding tolerances may occur which do not entitle the customer a reprint or compensation.
- The specifications of the printing process are not binding. A certain printing process is not guaranteed and is therefore no reason for a complaint.
ADL’s liability if Customer is purchasing as a consumer
- If ADL fails to comply with these Terms, ADL is responsible for any loss or damage suffered by Customer that is a foreseeable result of ADL’s breach of the Terms or ADL’s negligence.

- Except as expressly stated in these Terms, ADL does not give any representation, warranty or undertaking in relation to the Products. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Terms by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, ADL will not be responsible for ensuring that the Products are suitable for Customer’s purposes.
- Nothing in these Terms limit or exclude ADL’s liability for:
- Communications between ADL and Customer
- When these Terms refer to “in writing”, this will include e-mail.

In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee. The provisions of this condition shall not apply to the service of any proceedings or other documents in any legal action.
- Where Customer decides not to proceed with an order having obtained a Advanced Artwork Check and/or Proof from ADL, it must notify ADL immediately in writing. Customer shall be liable to pay the additional costs incurred by ADL in carrying out such Advanced Artwork Check and/or Proof.

- Trade marks / Copyright
- The Customer shall indemnify ADL against any and all claims, liability, costs losses, damages and expenses arising out of the use by ADL of the materials provided to ADL by Customer including (without limitation) the Artwork.
- Other important terms
- ADL may transfer its rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect Customer’s rights or ADL‘s obligations under these Terms.
- Customer may only transfer its rights or obligations under these Terms to another person if ADL agree in writing. However if Customer is a consumer and has purchased a Product as a gift, Customer may transfer the benefit of the warranty to the recipient of the gift without needing to ask ADL’s consent.
- The Contract is between ADL and Customer. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. If Customer is a consumer, the recipient of any gift of a Product will have the benefit of ADL’s warranty, but ADL and Customer will not need their consent to cancel or make any changes to these Terms.
- Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
- If ADL (i) fails to insist that Customer perform any of its obligations under these Terms, (ii) does not enforce its rights against Customer, or (iii) delays in enforcing its rights against Customer, that will not mean that ADL has waived its rights against Customer or that Customer does not have to comply with those obligations. If ADL does waive a default by Customer, ADL will only do so in writing, and this will not mean that ADL will automatically waive any later default by Customer.
- If Customer is purchasing as a consumer, these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through the Website and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law.
