1.3 By accepting the Contract you are confirming that you are a Consumer. No third party may claim any rights under this contract.
2 YOUR ORDER FOR THE GOODS AND SERVICES
2.1 The Order shall be detailed on the form attached to these conditions. Once the Order has been completed and signed by you and received by us, the Order shall be deemed to have been accepted by us unless we notify you to the contrary within 7 days of you signing the Contract (in which case we shall promptly refund any sums paid by you in respect of the Order.)
2.2 Where the Order is purchased on credit terms, we will require a purchase order or equivalent document that guarantees payment upon terms agreed. Failure to honor payment terms will incur 5% interest charge above principal order value per month.
2.3 By placing the Order you authorize us, at our discretion, to carry out credit references or other enquiries of your financial status and you shall provide, upon request, any written authorization which may be required for the purpose of such enquiries.
2.4 You warrant to us that you: have the right to contract with us to supply the Goods and Services at the premises where they are to be delivered to and installed; and will supply us with such information, rights of access, and mains electricity that we may reasonably require in order to deliver the Goods and perform the Services and/or check the Goods and their installation where you notify us about a problem with the same.
3 PRICE AND PAYMENT
3.1 The price for the Goods and Services is stated on the Order. All prices are inclusive of the cost of VAT. Certain sites may incur additional delivery and installation charges which will be notified to Consumer. For delivery and installation sites outside Nairobi City, additional out of town charges apply for transport and it is consumer’s responsibility to ensure adequate accommodation and food provision for installation teams.
3.2 Unless credit terms have been agreed with us in writing, payment of the purchase price for the Goods, net of any deposit already paid, is due upon completion of the Services or, in the event of cancellation or refusal to accept delivery of the Goods, upon such cancellation or refusal as the case may be.
3.3 Where you do not make any payment to us under the Contract by its due date, we may, in addition to any other rights which we have under this Contract and in law: withhold further deliveries or supplies, or suspend performance of the Contract until arrangements as to payment or credit have been established on terms which are satisfactory to us; and/or we may bring action against you for the price of the Goods plus administration & recovery costs at any time.
3.4 In the event that your final balance payment is not received, for example if your card declines or your Cheque bounces, or if you fail to make payment once fitting has taken place, we may instruct internal or external debt collectors to collect the monies due from you under this contract. Where we instruct any debt collector we reserve the right to charge you, in addition to the overdue amount and accrued interest, and any other remedies or rights that we may have, for any charges reasonably incurred by us in instructing a debt collector.
4 DELIVERY OF THE GOODS AND SUPPLY OF THE SERVICES
4.1 We will deliver the Goods and supply the Services to the place noted in the Order.
4.2 Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, any delivery or supply date or time specified by us in any Order or otherwise is a best estimate only and we will not be liable to you for any loss or damage (including for the avoidance of doubt any loss of income or revenue, loss of business, loss of anticipated savings, loss of data or any waste of time related to a cancelled fitting appointment) sustained by you if we fail to meet that timescale because of circumstances beyond our reasonable control. The Order relates to a made-to-measure product which is exempt from delivery within a 30 day period, as the delivery time for a made-to-measure product may vary by several weeks.
4.3 Where you fail to meet and/or agree the delivery date, full payment must be made. We will not accept postponement of fitting unless full payment is received.
4.4 It is a condition of these terms that access to the property is made available at the mutually agreed dates for Survey, installation and service calls. In order to ensure safe working practices it is a condition of these terms that the area in which the works are to be carried out is cleared of but not limited to pets, plants, furniture, breakable items and household residents. The company requires 72 hours’ notice of a cancelled appointment.
4.5 For larger Orders it may be necessary for Goods to be delivered to the property prior to the installation date. We will inform you where this is necessary and you will be responsible for facilitating such a delivery.
4.6 As every blind is custom made to your precise requirements, once made, our products are suitable only to you, and therefore cannot be cancelled or returned. Because of this, it is extremely important that you are sure about the product that you want and also the size you require. We strongly recommend that you double check any measurements and take advantage of our measuring service to ensure that you order both the correct size and correct design. Any changes to blinds after they have been produced or installed will incur additional charges that will be fully borne by Consumer.
4.7 Our Survey and Installation Teams are under instruction to exclusively provide services for products purchased from Vitendi Ltd only. We will not remove fixtures and fittings unrelated to our products and/or you’re Order with us. If our window treatments are to replace existing old systems, blinds, curtain rods, curtain pelmets or any other fittings in your premises, these are to be removed before hand by the Consumer before our installation is requested to install you new Vitendi window treatments. In the event that our installation team is forced to remove or add fixtures and fittings, the Consumer will be automatically charged additionally for the labor and time at Company rates which will be fully payable.
4.8 For window heights that exceed 3 meters from floor level, the Consumer will have to make arrangements to provide sufficient scaffolding in order to ensure installation safety for our team.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the installation of the Goods does not breach any leasehold, planning regulations or warranties that you may hold.

7 DELAY OR FAILURE TO PERFORM
We shall not be liable to you if we are prevented or delayed in the performing of any obligations to you if this is due to any cause beyond our reasonable control including, without limitation: an act of God, explosion, flood, fire or accident; war or civil disturbance; strike, industrial action or stoppages of work; any form of government intervention; a third party act or omission; failure by you to give us a correct delivery address or notify us of any change of address.
8.1 No waiver by us of any breach of the Contract by you is considered as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.
8.2 Each provision of this Contract shall be construed separately and notwithstanding that the whole or any part of any such provision may prove to be illegal or unenforceable the other provisions of this Contract and the remainder of the provision in question shall continue in full force and effect.
