Sale of products on lumea.co.uk are for trade users ONLY. For consumer sales please visit lumeahome.co.uk

(3) Order process
The advertising of products on our website constitutes an “invitation to treat”; and your order for products constitutes a contractual offer. No contract will come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure detailed below.
In order to enter into a contract to purchase products from us, you will need to take the following steps:
- you must add the products you wish to purchase to your shopping basket, and then proceed to the checkout;
- if you are a new customer, you must then create an account with us and log in; if you are an existing customer, you must enter your login details;
- once you are logged in, you must select your preferred method of delivery and confirm your order and your consent to these terms of sale;
- you must then select your preferred method of payment:
- on customer credit account – Only by prior agreement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set-up an online credit facility.
- By credit/debit card – You will be taken to the secure server facilities of WorldPay, where your credit/debit card details are processed. At no time are details of your card revealed outside this process in either display or print. Lumea Ltd. does not receive any information with respect to your credit/debit card. Once the transaction is complete, you will be returned to the lumea.co.uk website. For information about the WorldPay service, please visit: www.worldpay.com
- Via PayPal – You will be taken to the secure server facilities of PayPal, where you will be asked to login to your existing PayPal account. From here your credit/debit card details are processed. At no time are details of your card revealed outside this process in either display or print. Lumea Ltd. does not receive any information with respect to your credit/debit card. Once the transaction is complete, you will be returned to the lumea.co.uk website. For information about the PayPal service, please visit: www.paypal.com
- we will then display a page confirming receipt of your order and send you an initial acknowledgement to your registered email address; and once we have checked that we are able to meet your order, and account status if making payment via method 4.1 we will either send you an order confirmation (at which point your order will become a binding contract) or we will confirm by email that we are unable to meet your order. We will always make contact using the details provided at time of registration.
We will not file a copy of these terms of sale specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of these terms of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you download, print and retain a copy of these terms of sale for your records.
The only language in which we provide these terms of sale is English.
Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any input errors by reviewing your order on the Review & Payment page. You may correct those input errors before placing your order by clicking on the link Edit Billing / Delivery Information to edit your address details or by clicking on the link Edit Basket to edit the contents of your order.
(4) The products
Lumea sells a wide range of ambient lighting products for your restaurant, hotel, bar or leisure venue. These include electrical candles, liquid wax candles, hard wax candles, candle holders, lamp oil and other candle and lighting related products.
Customers need to be aware that our paraffin based liquid wax candles can only be sold for professional (i.e. business) use. They cannot be sold to consumers for home users. For home use, please visit lumeahome.co.uk
(5) Price and payment
Prices for products are quoted on our website. The website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that some of the prices on the website may be incorrect. We will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that a product’s correct price will be stated.
In addition to the price of the products, you may have to pay a delivery charge, which will be as stated when you pay for the product.
Payment must be made upon the submission of your order or via your customer credit account facility if we have made this available to you. We may withhold the products and/or cancel the contract between us if the price is not received from you in full in cleared funds or if your customer account does not have a clear line of credit.
The prices on the website are displayed in all possible variants making clear the full price including all value added taxes (where applicable) and also the amount of VAT applicable and the price excluding VAT. Our catalogue pages (product list pages) display prices excluding VAT.
Payment for all products must be made by credit/debit card, PayPal or by Customer credit account if we have made this available to you.
Prices for products are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect contracts which have come into force.
If you are a business customer, then on application following credit checks we may agree to open a credit facility account for you, enabling you to pay in arrears. Where you hold a credit account, then upon or following the dispatch of products, we will send to you an invoice for payment of the price of those products, and you will pay such invoice within 30 days of the date of the invoice. Accounts will be subject to such credit limits as we may notify to you from time to time. If you do not pay any amount properly due to us under or in connection with these terms of sale on time, we may: charge you interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% per year above the base rate of HSBC Bank Plc from time to time (which interest will accrue daily until the date of actual payment, be compounded quarterly, and be payable on demand); or claim interest and statutory compensation from you pursuant to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
If you dispute any payment made to us you must contact us immediately and provide full details of your claim. If you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within 7 days following the date of the charge-back:
- an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back;
- all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (including charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer);
- an administration fee of GBP50 (including VAT); and
- all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts referred to in this paragraph (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees).
Without prejudice to our other rights, if you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back, then we may terminate any contracts between you and us under these terms of sale by giving you written notice of termination.
For the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back.

The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the products will only pass to you upon the later of:

Until ownership of the products has passed to you, you will possess the products as our fiduciary agent and bailee, and if you are a business customer you must store the products separately from other goods and ensure that the products are clearly identifiable as belonging to us.
We will be entitled to recover payment for the products even where ownership has not passed to you.

(12) Business customers: returns policy
This Section applies to business customers, not consumers. If you are a consumer, the applicable returns policy is set out in Section 9.
Products may only be returned to us with our prior agreement, at your expense, and according to our directions. Any products returned in contravention of this Section will not be the subject of any refunds or replacements and you will continue to be liable for payment of the price of such products.
Where you return products to us in accordance with the provisions of this Section, and in our reasonable opinion those products do not conform with the warranties set out in Section 11, then you will be entitled to replacement products (where replacements are available) or, where we agree, a refund of the price paid in respect of those products (including all delivery charges).
If you cancel a contract and are entitled to a refund, we will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 30 days of the day we received your valid notice of cancellation.

If we become aware of a force majeure event which gives rise to, or which is likely to give rise to, any failure or delay in us performing our obligations under these terms of sale, we will notify you forthwith.
