4. Buying Products/Services through our Website - Sage Store
Our Website allows you to buy Products and Services. As you might expect, the Products and Services on our Website are not intended for everyone and we rely on you to check you are eligible to buy the Products and Services and that the Products and Services meet your specific needs before you place any Orders. By placing an Order through our Website, you are representing that:
you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
you are at least 18 years old;
you are resident in the UK. We do not accept Orders from businesses outside the UK. If you are outside the UK, please see http://www.sage.com/ for a list of Sage websites in other countries; and
if you are an individual placing an Order on behalf of a business or an organisation, you are authorised to place the Order on their behalf.
How to buy Products and Services
The steps you need to take to conclude a Contract with us are:
(A) Check variable information, such as prices
We will display on our Website certain variable information which you will need to know before you place your Order, such as the range and descriptions of Products and Services and their current prices. This information may also be available outside of our Website, for example, in printed documentation or supplied over the telephone by our sales staff.
Please note that this variable information is known as an "invitation to treat" and not a contractual offer from us which you may accept. This means that we reserve the right to correct any errors in that information without any liability to you. You understand that sometimes errors can occur and so we will not be contractually bound to supply you with Products or Services on the basis of incorrect information, even if that information is repeated in your Order. Please see section 6 for more information about prices and how to pay.
(B) Make sure you read and understand our terms
Please note that Sage Store is intended for businesses and not Consumers. If you accept the documents referred to above on behalf of a corporate buyer and you are not authorised to do so, you may assume personal liability for the obligations set out in those documents. If you are a Consumer, please do not place orders through our Website.
(C) Complete your Order
Please select the Products and/or Services you wish to buy, supply your delivery address, tell us how you wish to pay and give us any other information we request to enable us to fulfill your Order. We can only act on the information you provide to us, so please ensure that all information you provide to us is correct.
You may pay for your Products and/or Services online by credit or debit card or ask us to send you an invoice or arrange to set up a direct debit (where applicable - see http://shop.sage.co.uk/directdebit.aspx). The credit and debit cards we accept are set out on our Website. If you choose to pay by credit or debit card, we will charge it when you place your Order (see below) and we will check to see whether the transaction is authorised. Our payment card processor may contact you to confirm that your payment has been authorised; this is not an acceptance of your Order (see below). If you ask to pay by invoice, we will post you a paper invoice, which you must then settle within 30 days of the date of the invoice. If you wish to pay by direct debit installments, we will confirm the terms of such arrangements with you - available on finance or cash terms for business purposes only. Subject to status. Conditions apply.
When you have completed your Order, you will be shown a copy of your Order on screen. You must check your Order carefully to identify any errors and correct them prior to placing your Order. Our Website allows you to cancel any draft Orders, and to edit any details of your Order. Once you have finished checking and (if necessary) correcting your Order, please print out a copy of the Order before you place it. This is for your own records and will help you if you need to contact us about your Order.
(D) Place your Order
You may place your Order by clicking on the "Place Order" button.
We will acknowledge receipt of your Order on our Website and by email, as soon as reasonably possible after you have placed your Order. This is not our Acceptance of your Order, but a confirmation that we have received your Order. You now need to wait for our Acceptance of your Order (see below).
(E) Wait for our Acceptance of your Order
After you place your Order through our Website we'll send you an email to confirm your Order. This email is an acknowledgement of receipt of your Order. We are only able to accept your Order at the time we dispatch it, when we will also confirm the details (including price) in our invoice/dispatch note. This is our Acceptance of your Order.
You may receive an acknowledgment from our payment processor advising you whether or not your credit or debit card payment has been authorised. This acknowledgement relates to authorisation of your payment only and is not our Acceptance of your Order.
Please note that we are entitled to refuse to accept any Order. If that happens, we will let you know as soon as we can.
Once we have entered into a Contract with you as explained above, we will supply you with the Products and/or Services that you specified in your Order in accordance with the terms of the Contract.
