The amount of the reduction can, where appropriate, be up to the full amount of the Fees or charges.

 33. In any case, regardless of events beyond our control, if we do not deliver the Goods on time, you can (in addition to any other remedies) treat the Contract at an end if:

If the Goods have been delivered, you must return them or allow us to collect them from you and we will pay the costs of this.

 36. If any Goods form a commercial unit (a unit is a commercial unit if division of the unit would materially impair the value of the goods or the character of the unit) you cannot cancel or reject the Order for some of those Goods without also cancelling or rejecting the Order for the rest of them.

 41. Risk of damage to, or loss of, any Goods will pass to you when the Goods are delivered to you.

 42. You do not own the Goods until we have received payment in full.

Rescheduling and cancellation

 43. Once a Booking for Services with a deposit has been received, the deposit is non-refundable.

 c. conform to their description.

 49. It is not a failure to conform if the failure has its origin in your materials.

 52. In relation to the Services, anything we say or write to you, about us or about the Services, is a term of the Contract (which we must comply with) if you take it into account when deciding to enter this Contract, or when making any decision about the Services after entering into this Contract. Anything you take into account is subject to anything that qualified it and was said or written to you by us on the same occasion, and any change to it that has been expressly agreed between us (before entering this Contract or later).

Duration, termination and suspension

 53. The Contract continues as long as it takes us to perform the Services.

 54. Either you or we may terminate the Contract or suspend the Services at any time by a written notice of termination or suspension to the other if that other:
