(a) services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
(b) Any Bespoke Products.Customers who have paid the pre fitting amount for bespoke products for delivery and/or fitting.

However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running.

12.6 What to do if you think an invoice or order form is wrong . If you think an invoice or order form is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know.

13.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us . If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
13.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so . This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care and, where installed by us, correctly installed; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

15. Other important terms
15.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else . We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
15.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee) . You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
15.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
15.4 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.
15.5 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.

If the search was for a credit application they will place a search 'footprint' on your file whether or not your application proceeds and the record of that search (but not the name of the organisation that carried it out) may be seen by other organisations when you apply for credit in the future.
b) They will link together your records and those of anyone that you have advised is your financial associate, including previous and subsequent names of you and any financial associates. Links between financial associates will remain on your and their files until such time as you and your financial associate successfully files for a disassociation with the Credit Reference Agencies.
c) They will supply to us:
· credit information such as previous applications and the conduct of accounts in your name and of your associates and/or your business accounts,
· public information such as County Court Judgements and bankruptcies
· Electoral Register information, and
· fraud prevention information.
d) If you have an agreement with us, Credit Reference Agencies will record the details that we supply to them on your agreement and how you manage it. If you borrow and do not repay in full and on time, Credit Reference Agencies will record the outstanding debt.
e) Records shared with Credit Reference Agencies remain on file for 6 years after they are closed, whether settled by you or defaulted.
f) The information which we, other organisations and Fraud Prevention Agencies provide to the Credit Reference Agencies and Fraud Prevention Agencies about you, your financial associates and your business (if you have one) may be supplied by Credit Reference Agencies and Fraud Prevention Agencies to other organisations and used by them and us to:
· prevent fraud and money laundering by, for example, checking details on applications for credit and credit related or other facilities; checking details on proposals and claims for all types of insurance; checking details of job applications and employees,
· verify your identity if you or your financial associate applies for other facilities including all types of insurance applications and claims,
· assist other organisations to make decisions on credit and credit related services or other facilities, about you, your partner, other members of your household or your business,
· trace your whereabouts and recover debts that you owe,
· manage credit and credit related accounts and other facilities, and
· undertake statistical analysis and system testing.
g) Law Enforcement Agencies may also access and use this information.
h) We and other organisations may access and use from other countries the information recorded by Fraud Prevention Agencies.
You can contact the Credit Reference Agencies currently operating in the UK. The information they hold may not be the same so it is worth contacting them all. They will charge you a small statutory fee.
