Law & Jurisdiction
The English courts will have non-exclusive jurisdiction over any claim arising from, or related to a visit to our site, although We retain the right to bring proceedings against You for breach of these Terms in your country of residence or any other relevant country.
These Terms and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement between You and Us in relation to the subject matter of any contract and supercede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between You and Us, whether oral or in writing.
We each acknowledge that, in entering into a contract, neither You nor We have relied on any representation, undertaking or promise given by the other or be implied from anything said or written in negotiations between Us both prior to such contract, except as expressly stated in these Terms.
Neither of us shall have any remedy against the other in respect of any untrue statement made by the other, whether orally or in writing, prior to the date of any contract (unless such untrue statement was made fraudulently) and the other party’s only remedy shall be for breach of contract as provided in these Terms.
GBS Architectural Limited will not be liable to You where performance of any of our obligations to You is prevented or restricted by any circumstance or cause beyond our reasonable control. Our performance is deemed to be suspended for the period that such circumstance or cause continues and We will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the circumstances or cause to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations may be performed despite these.
Applicable laws require that some of the information or communications We send to You should be in writing. When using our site, You accept that communication with Us will be mainly electronic. We will contact You by email or provide You with information by posting notices on our site. For contractual purposes, You agree to this electronic means of communication and You acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that We provide to You electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.
All notices given by You to Us must be given to GBS Architectural Limited at the postal or email addresses given at the end of these Terms (under Contact Details). We may give notice to You at either the email or postal address You provide to Us, or in any of the ways specified in the paragraph above. Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on our site, 24 hours after an email is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an email, that such email was sent to the specified email address of the addressee.
