2. Order and Acceptance
2.1 The Customer may place an order for Product(s) directly with Brewfitt Limited via the Website. The placing of an order by the Customer represents an offer by the Customer to buy the Products subject to these Terms. Please note that the Contract between the Customer and Brewfitt Limited is formed only when Brewfitt Limited accepts the Customer’s order by issuing the Customer with an Order Confirmation in writing.
2.2 Any Products forming part of your order which are not detailed in Brewfitt Limited’s Order Confirmation do not form part of that Contract. If there are any inaccuracies or errors in Brewfitt Limited’s Order Confirmation, you must contact Brewfitt Limited immediately, so that has an opportunity to correct any mistake or clarify any misunderstanding before commencing delivery/performance.
2.3 Brewfitt Limited may make minor changes to the specification of the Product you order if for example there is a scarcity of a particular component or for any other reasonable grounds notified to you. Any such minor change will be to at least an equivalent or better specification and will not adversely affect the material functionality or performance of the Product. Any such change will be set out in the applicable Order Confirmation. Acceptance of delivery of items listed in the Order Confirmation that are subject to a minor change, and use by the Customer will constitute acceptance by the Customer of the minor changes in the order.

Brewfitt Limited shall not be liable for any loss (including loss of profits), costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Products (even if caused by Brewfitt Limited’s negligence), nor will any delay entitle Customer to terminate or rescind the Agreement.

The Customer shall be responsible for unloading the Products and for checking the Products in the presence of the carrier and in the event of shortage and/or damage the carrier’s ticket must be endorsed accordingly. Separate written notification must be given to Brewfitt Limited within three days of delivery. Claims cannot be recognised unless this action has been taken and Brewfitt Limited’s liability in this respect is limited accordingly.

4.4 If for any reason Customer does not accept delivery of any of the Products when they are ready for delivery, or Brewfitt Limited is unable to deliver the Products on time because Customer has not provided appropriate instructions, documents, licences or authorisations then the Products will be deemed to have been delivered, risk passing to Customer (including for loss or damage caused by Brewfitt Limited’s negligence) and Brewfitt Limited may:
