Idency Full Terms & Conditions of Sale
All orders accepted by Idency Ltd are subject to our Terms & Conditions of Sale set out below:
1. Product/Service listings
1.1 All orders for products and services on the Idency website – https://idency.com (our website) accepted by Idency Limited (“Idency”, “Us”, “Our”, “We”) are subject to these terms and conditions of sale below. No other terms apply to the supply of products and services by us unless agreed in writing by an authorised signatory of Idency or expressly stated otherwise in these terms and conditions of sale.
1.2 All descriptions of the products and services contained on our website or otherwise communicated to any purchaser of such products or services (the “Customer”, “You”) are approximate only and shall not form any part of the contract between Us and You. We shall not be liable to you for any errors or omissions on our website. The advertising of products and services on our website is not an offer capable of acceptance; it’s merely an invitation from us for you to make an offer to purchase products and services. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we confirm pricing and delivery dates to you in writing, at which point a contract will come into existence between us and you.
1.3 Idency is a business-to-business supplier. Our website is intended for use by business customers and not by private individuals acting as consumers. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions of sale shall affect the statutory rights of a Customer who deals as a consumer.
1.4 Idency reserves the right, without prior notice, to discontinue or update any product on the Idency website.
2.1 The prices of the products and services are as set out on the Idency website. We reserve the right to change prices without prior notice at any time. The price of an ordered product or service will be as set out on the Idency website at the time of order acceptance by us.
3.1 Idency reserves the right to choose to trade with any company or person, or not. We may decline to accept any order, whether or not payment has been received, by giving notice of non-acceptance to the Customer by telephone or email within a reasonable period of receipt of the order. Further, we may cancel orders which have been accepted by giving written notice of such cancellation to the Customer by telephone or email within a reasonable period of receipt of the order. If Idency rejects or cancels an order for which payment has been taken, it will refund the amount to the Customer as soon as reasonably practicable.
4.1 Subject to any cancellation or non-fulfilment of Customer’s orders, Idency will deliver the products specified in the Customer’s order. We may use third party delivery partners to deliver products.
4.2 The Customer’s delivery price will be notified to the Customer at the time of order.
4.3 Delivery prices apply per order. Delivery will be made to the supplied delivery address.
4.4 Deliveries can arrive between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday. In the event you (or your representative) are not there to receive the goods you may need to re-arrange the delivery or collect it from the local depot.
4.5 All deliveries have to be signed for as proof of receipt unless the Customer gives written authorisation (before goods are despatched) for the goods to be left without a signature – this written authorisation removes liability by the courier or Idency for the goods after delivery.
5. Inspection, Delivery Delays and Non-Delivery
5.1 All goods leave our premises in good condition but if you are not satisfied with the goods on arrival DO NOT ACCEPT delivery. In any event, if you are not satisfied with the goods Idency will need to be informed within 7 days and the goods returned in their original condition to Idency within 14 days, otherwise you will be deemed to have accepted the goods.
5.2 Shortage, damage or incorrect deliveries should be clearly stated on the signed delivery note to be returned to Idency and Idency notified in writing within 24 hours of delivery.
6. Payment for Products and Services
6.1 Payment terms are cash with order. Credit accounts can be applied for.

6.3 If any sum is not paid on the due date for payment then Idency may apply an interest charge to the outstanding balance.
7. Risk and Ownership
7.1 Risk of loss or damage to the products passes to the Customer on delivery. If the Customer fails to take delivery of the products, in which case the risk will pass to the Customer at the time when delivery has been attempted.
7.2 Ownership of any products shall not pass to the Customer until full payment has been made (in cash or cleared funds). If the Customer is late in paying any sum, then Idency shall be entitled to the immediate return of all products where ownership has not passed to the Customer. The Customer authorises Idency and its agents to recover any such products under those circumstances, and to enter any premises of the Customer for that purpose.
7.3 Demand for or recovery of the products by Idency shall not of itself discharge either the Customer’s liability to pay the whole of the price and take delivery of the products or Idency’s right to sue for the whole of the price.
