These Terms tell you who we are, how we will provide Products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.

- Are you a business customer or a consumer? Our Products are intended for landlords of residential properties who are in business as such, as well as other businesses within the residential lettings sector in England and Wales such as lettings agents and inventory providers. As such, it is anticipated that most of our customers will require our Products for purposes within their trade, business, craft or profession (“business customer”). However, if you are an individual person and are ordering our Products for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession, you are a consumer for the purposes of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (“CRA”) and these Terms. If you are a consumer:

- the following clause of these Terms (printed in RED) apply only to you (and not to business customers): Clauses 6.5, 7.1, 7.2(c), 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 8.6, 10.2, 12 and the Schedule; and
- you will be asked to confirm that you are a consumer when you order any Products from us.
If you are not a consumer, you are referred to in these Terms as a business customer. If you are a business customer, the clauses set out at paragraph (a) above (printed in BLUE) apply to you (and not to consumers) but the clauses set out at paragraph (b) above (printed in RED) do notapply to you. If you are a business customer, your attention is particularly drawn to Clause 13 – Exclusions and Limitation of Liability.

- How we may contact you. If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
- “Writing” includes emails. When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these terms, this includes emails.
- OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
- Placing your order. Please follow the onscreen prompts on our website to place an order for our Products. Each order is an offer by you to buy the Products specified in the order subject to these Terms.
- Correcting input errors. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please check your order carefully before confirming it. You are responsible for ensuring that your order is complete and accurate.
- Acknowledging receipt of your order. After you place an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received it, but please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in Clause 3.4.
- How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we send you an email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
- If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Product. This might be because goods are out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
- We only sell to the UK. Our Products are intended for use only in relation to residential properties situated in England and Wales (they are not suitable for use in relation to properties outside those countries where different laws will apply). Our website is solely for the promotion of our Products to potential customers located in the UK (customers located in Scotland, Northern Ireland or other parts of the UK outside England and Wales may wish to order our Products for use in connection with residential properties they own or manage in England and Wales). Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from, or for delivery to addresses outside the UK.
- Pictures and packaging of Products may vary. Where our Products consist of goods, the images of the Products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we make every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours on our website accurately reflects the colour of such Products. The Product may vary slightly from those images. The packaging of such Products may also vary from that shown in images on our website.
- Entire agreement (business customers only). The contract formed between us, on these Terms, when we accept your order is the entire agreement between you and us in relation to its subject matter.

If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (seeClause 7 – Your rights to end the contract).
- OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
- Minor changes to the Products. We may change the Products (or any of them):
(a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements , which could include updates to training videos and/or updated questions required for property inspections and reports; and
(b) to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat or improve the user experience. These changes will not materially affect your use of the Product.
- More significant changes to the Products and these Terms. In addition, as we informed you in the description of the Product on our website, we may make the following changes to these Terms or the Products, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any Products paid for but not received. Such changes may include (but are not limited to)::
- the option to purchase additional Products from us;
- an increase in the price of the Products;
- a change to the length of the contract renewal period; and/or
- the inclusion of offers from third parties.
- Updates to digital content. We may update or require you to update digital content included in the Products, provided that the digital content shall always match the description of it that we provided to you before you bought it.
- PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS
- When we will provide the Products.
- If the Products are one-off services. We will begin the services on the date we accept your order. The estimated completion date for the services is as told to you during the order process.
- If the Product is a one-off purchase of digital content. We will make the digital content available for download by you as soon as we accept your order.
- If the Products are ongoing services or a subscription to receive digital content or goods. We will supply the services, digital content or goods to you until either the services are completed or the subscription expires (if applicable) or you end the contract as described in Clause 7or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in Clause 9.
- If the Products are goods. We will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible and will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
- Delivery costs. Where Products consist of goods, the costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
- We are not responsible for delays caused by events outside our control. If our supply of the Products is prevented or delayed by any act or event beyond our reasonable control (“Event Outside Our 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 Event Outside Our Control. Provided we do this we will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under the contract that is caused by the Event Outside Our Control, but if there is a substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract under Clause 7.2and receive a refund for any Products you have paid for but not received.
- If you are not at the delivery address when the Product is delivered. Where the Product consists of goods, if no one is available at the delivery address to take delivery and the Products cannot be posted through the letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the Products from a local depot. If you do not collect the Products from us (or our delivery service provider) as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or to collect the Products 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 to re-arrange delivery or collection, we may end the contract and Clause 10.2 (if you are a consumer)or Clause 10.3 (if you are a business customer)will apply.
- Your legal rights if we deliver goods late (consumers only). If you are a consumer, you have legal rights if we deliver Products which consist of goods late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any such Products then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
- we have refused to deliver the Products;
- delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
- you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under this clause, you can give us a new deadline for delivery of the Products, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
If you choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under this clause, you can cancel your order for any such Products or reject Products (which are goods) that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel your order for some of those Products (instead of 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 either return them in person to us, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call our customer service team on 0800 193 1198 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org a return label or to arrange collection.
- When you become responsible for goods. Where a Product is goods, it will be your responsibility (at your risk) from the time we deliver the Product to the delivery address you set out in your order or you (or a carrier organised by you) collect it from us.
- When you own goods. You own a Product which is goods once we have received payment in full for that Product, including all applicable delivery charges.
- What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the Products to you, for example, details of the rental property and your payment details. If so, this will have been stated with the description of the Products on our website. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and Clause 9.2will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
- Our right to re-sell the Products (which are goods) (business customers only). If you fail to take delivery of Products which are goods within days after the date we first notified you that we had tried to make delivery of the Products to you at your delivery address (but failed to make delivery) or that the Products were ready for you to collect, we may re-sell part or all of the Products.
- Reasons we may suspend the supply of Products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a Product to:
- deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
- update the Product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or
- make changes to the Product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see Clause 5).
- Your rights if we suspend the supply of Products. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the Product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the supply of the Product for longer than one period of 24 hours in any calendar month, we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for Products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a Product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 48 hours in any calendar month and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
- We may also suspend supply of the Products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the Products when you are supposed to (see Clause 11.4) and you still do not make payment within 5 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the Products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the Products. We will not suspend supply of the Products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see Clause 11.6). We will not charge you for the Products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending supply of the Products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (seeClause 11.5).
- YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
- You can always end your contract with us (consumers only). Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what Products you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with those Products, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at paragraphs (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
- we have told you about an upcoming change to the Product or these Terms which you do not agree to (seeClause 5.2);
- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
- (only if you are a consumer) there is a risk that supply of the Products may be significantly delayed because of an Events Outside Our Control;

However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running.

- Have you bought digital content for download or streaming (for example, video training programmes. Property assessment tools, inspection reports or downloadable documents)?If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming. If we delivered the digital content to you immediately, and you agreed to this when ordering, you will not have a right to change your mind.
- Have you bought goods (for example, smoke pens)? If so, you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:

- if such Products are faulty or misdescribed; or
- if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the Product or these Terms, or because of an error in pricing or description of such Products, or because of a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.

- What we charge for collection of goods. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the Products (which are goods) from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
- How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the Products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
- Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind (consumers only). If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
- We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products (which are ooods), if this has been caused by you handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. Please contact us at Email. Support @letsshield co.uk or see our Returns page on our website for information about what handling is acceptable and examples. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
- The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
- Where the Product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
- When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind (as a consumer) then:
- if the Product is goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us. For information about how to return a Product to us, see Clause 8.2;

- PRICE AND PAYMENT
11.1 Where to find the price for the Product. The price of the Product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages of our website when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. However please see Clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product you order.
11.2 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.
11.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Products provided to you.
11.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment through Charge Bee via our website, using a. debit card. When you must pay depends on what Product you are buying:
- For digital content, you must pay for the Products before you download them.
- For services, where these are to be provided online, you must pay for them in advance of the services being provided by us. If services are to be provided by us otherwise than online, such as face-to-face training, you must make an advance payment of 50% of the price of the services before we start providing them, which will be a non-returnable deposit. We will invoice you for the balance of the price of the services when we have completed them. You must pay each invoice within 14 calendar days after the date of the invoice.
- For goods, you must pay for the Products before we dispatch them. We will not charge you credit or debit card until we dispatch the Products to you.
11.5 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 5% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time.

- OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU (CONSUMERS ONLY)
- We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products including the right to receive Products which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care; and, where installed by us, correctly installed; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services.
- If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
- If you are a consumer, we are not liable for business losses. If you are ordering the products for domestic and private use only (as a consumer), if you then use the Products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose, we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

- Subject to Clause 13.3, if we fail to deliver Products which are goods, our liability is limited to the cost of obtaining replacement goods of a similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Products. However, we will not be liable to the extent that any failure to deliver was caused by any event outside our control, or because you failed to provide adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Products.
- The terms implied by sections 3, 4 and 5 SGSA or by sections 13 to 15 (inclusive) of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from any contract for the Products.

If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining clauses and paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
- Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of you breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
- Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in the English courts.
