2.2 Where the Customer wishes to purchase the Products based on:
(a) Clear Prospects’ published price list (which can be found primarily on the Websites); or
(b) any Quotation that has been issued by Clear Prospects,
then the Customer shall first be required to raise an Order for the Products. The Customer shall also be required to include a precise Delivery Location in respect of the Products within its Order.

(a) it will provide complete and accurate information regarding its identity and whether it is creating the account or otherwise purchasing the Products as a Business or a Consumer; and
(b) where the Customer is a Business, it has the requisite authority on behalf of the Business to set up the account and enter into the Contract with Clear Prospects.
2.5 Where Clear Prospects has supplied a Quotation for the Products it may withdraw that Quotation at any time and at its absolute discretion. Any Quotation supplied shall be an invitation to treat and not an offer capable of acceptance by the Customer.
2.6 The Order constitutes an offer by the Customer to purchase the Products in accordance with these Terms and shall not incorporate any other terms and conditions beyond those set out in the Contract. The Customer is responsible for ensuring and warrants that the terms outlined in the relevant published price list and where applicable, the Quotation, the Order and any applicable Specification are complete and accurate.

(b) Otherwise commences the performance of its obligations in accordance with the terms of the Order,
at which point the Contract shall come into existence.
2.8 Once the Contract comes into existence under clause 2.7, the Order may not be cancelled by the Customer except with the prior agreement of Clear Prospects in writing. Without prejudice to any further terms that may be agreed between the parties, any such agreement is on the basis that the Customer shall indemnify Clear Prospects in full against all Losses (which for the purpose of this clause shall include the cost of labour and materials, loss of profit, loss of business, loss of goodwill, loss of business opportunity, loss of anticipated saving and any other indirect, special or consequential loss) incurred by Clear Prospects as a result of such cancellation.

3. THE PRODUCTS
3.1 The Products are described in the Promotional Materials, as modified or supplemented by an applicable Specification provided by the Customer (if applicable).
3.2 To the extent that the Products are to be manufactured in accordance with a Specification supplied by the Customer, the Customer shall indemnify Clear Prospects, keep Clear Prospects indemnified and hold Clear Prospects harmless from and against all Losses (including any direct, indirect or consequential Losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal and other professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by Clear Prospects in connection with any claim made against Clear Prospects for actual or alleged infringement of any Intellectual Property Rights, whether or not registered, arising out of or in connection with Clear Prospects’ use of the Specification. This clause 3.2 shall survive termination of the Contract.
3.3 Clear Prospects reserves the right to amend the Specification if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements from time to time or to improve the Products where to do so would not have a material adverse effect on the Customer.
3.4 It is the Customer’s sole responsibility to ensure that any Specification that it provides is of a satisfactory quality, fit for the Customer’s intended purpose and that the Customer’s use of the Products will comply with Applicable Laws. The Customer acknowledges that Clear Prospects shall:
(a) only be responsible for supplying Products in accordance with the Specification as is displayed within any Quotation or otherwise in writing by Clear Prospects to the Customer; and
(b) not be in breach of the warranty contained in clause 5.1 where the Products differ in immaterial respects from their Specification (such as, for example, slight differences in colour and/or representation).

4.2 Unless otherwise agreed, delivery shall be on the basis of EXW (Clear Prospects’ Premises) (Ex-Works Incoterms 2020).

Clear Prospects may deliver the Products in advance of the proposed delivery date.
4.6 If the Customer fails to take or accept delivery of the Products then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or Clear Prospects’ failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract:

Where the Products are manufactured in accordance with a Specification supplied by the Customer, Clear Prospects will charge the Customer the full price stated within the Order in addition to any Losses that are incurred by Clear Prospects when disposing of such Products.
4.8 Clear Prospects may deliver the Products by instalments, and any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel that or any other instalment.

Clear Prospects shall, at its option, repair or replace the defective Products, or refund the price of the defective Products in addition to any reasonable return costs in accordance with clause 5.2(c).

ii. manufacturing the Products in line with any Pre-Production Sample Proof Document that has been agreed with the Customer;
(d) the Customer alters or repairs such Products’ without the written consent of Clear Prospects;
(e) the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or
(f) the Products differ from the Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements or for their improvement under clause 3.3.
5.4 Except as provided in this clause 5, Clear Prospects shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Products’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1.
