If after the site survey the delivery team considers it unsafe or considers that they would be unable to place the Products in your room of choice, the driver will ask you for an alternative room to place the Products. If no alternative room is available or accessible the Products will be left at the first accessible ground-floor door at the address.

If, upon or after delivery, the items will not fit in the property, or up any stairs, or into a certain room, then this will be classed as a "failed delivery" and the customer will be responsible for any "failed delivery" charges (including any extra you may have paid to upgrade to this service) or collection charges incurred by ourselves.

We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.

(a) Chat rooms.
(b) Bulletin boards.
2.2 Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
2.3 We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
2.4 The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
2.5 Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
