    1. The contract. Your order is an offer to us, the product retailer (“Retailer”) to buy the product(s) in your order. Your contract is with the Retailer and not your dentist, Your Dentist Recommends is acting as the agent of the Retailer in respect of your order. When you place an order you must confirm you have read the Retailer’s terms and conditions of sale (“Retailer Terms”), which will form the basis of the contract between you and the Retailer, by ticking the applicable box shown during the order process.
    2. Order Process. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting the order. Please take your time to read and check your order at each stage of the order process, it is your responsibility to ensure all information you supply is accurate. As we process your order, we will inform you by e-mail as soon as possible if any products you order turn out to be unavailable and you will not be charged for those products. Please note that Your Dentist Recommends has no control over product availability.
    3. How your order is accepted. Acceptance of your order will take place when it is accepted by the Retailer. We will e-mail you to confirm when this has happened.
    4. If your order cannot be accepted. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and you will not be charged for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on the Retailer’s which we could not reasonably plan for, because an error has been identified in the price description of the product or because the Retailer is unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
    5. Your order number. We will confirm the number assigned to your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
  5. Products

Your product may vary slightly from those images.
  6. Your rights to make changes
    If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible.

We make best endeavours to deliver to this timescale but consideration should be given during the current pandemic.
    3. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If the supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our or the Retailer’s control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
    4. If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, you will normally be left a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
    5. If you do not re-arrange delivery. If after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 11.2 will apply.
    6. Your legal rights if we deliver late. You have legal rights if products you order via the Service are delivered late. These will be set out in the Retailer Terms but you normally may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
      1. the Retailer has refused to deliver the products;
      2. delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
      3. you told us before your order was accepted that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
    7. Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
    8. Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.6 or clause 7.7, you can cancel your order for any of the products or reject products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products and their delivery. If the products have been delivered to you, you must post them back to the Retailer following the instructions on the returns form provided with your order (“Returns Form”).
    9. When you become responsible for the product. The product will be your responsibility from the time the product is delivered to the address you gave us.

However please see clause 13.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
    2. We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
