However please see clause 10.2 for what happens if we discover a mistake in the price of the product you order from Serpentine.
10.2 WHAT HAPPENS IF WE GOT THE PRICE WRONG.
Despite our best efforts, there may be times when some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced on the website. Of course, we usually check prices before accepting your order to ensure that when the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower, previously shown amount.
Should the product's correct price at your order date be more than the price stated in our price list, we will contact you to provide you with your instructions ahead of accepting your order.
However, should we accept and process your order where a pricing mistake is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognized by you (the customer) as a mispricing, we hold the right to end the contract, refund you any money you have paid and demand the return of any goods provided to you.
10.3 WHEN YOU MUST PAY AND HOW YOU MUST PAY.
Payment methods we accept include Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard, PayPal, American Express, Apple Pay. You need to pay for your ordered products before we dispatch them. However, we only charge your credit card when we have dispatched the order of products to your given address.

11.1 WE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO YOU FOR FORESEEABLE LOSS AND DAMAGE CAUSED BY US.
Should we fail to comply with these terms and conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer so long as it is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. However, we do not assume any culpability for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.
Loss or damage is foreseeable when it is obvious that it will occur as a result of some action or if, at the time the contract and order was created, we were both aware that it may be a possibility. For example, you may have discussed this option when speaking to us at the point of sale or via email.
11.2 WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR BUSINESS LOSSES.
All of the products that we supply at Serpentine are for personal and domestic use.

13. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
13.1 WE MAY TRANSFER THIS AGREEMENT TO SOMEONE ELSE.
We hold the right to transfer our rights and obligations under these terms and conditions to another organization. We will always tell you about this change in writing if this occurs. At all times, we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
13.2 YOU NEED OUR CONSENT TO TRANSFER YOUR RIGHTS TO SOMEONE ELSE (EXCEPT THAT YOU CAN ALWAYS TRANSFER OUR GUARANTEE).
Keep in mind that you can only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms and conditions to another individual person (not company or business) if we agree to this in writing.

This contract is between you (the customer) and us (Serpentine). For that reason, no other person outside of this contract shall ever have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
13.4 IF A COURT FINDS PART OF THIS CONTRACT ILLEGAL, THE REST WILL CONTINUE IN FORCE.
Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
13.5 EVEN IF WE DELAY IN ENFORCING THIS CONTRACT, WE CAN STILL ENFORCE IT LATER.
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
