If the customer refuses to make the purchase or fails to provide the information or instructions to enable delivery, then Designers Field is entitled to store the goods at the expense and risk of the customer.
Notification of a delivery date is always indicative and not a deadline. If the delivery date is exceeded, the customer is still obliged to purchase the goods unless before delivery the customer serves Designers Field with a notice of default, provides Designers Field with a further reasonable period in which to deliver, and this period also expires.
Designers Field is entitled to supply the goods in installments and to invoice separately for each installment. Goods are delivered on stock available basis or new products are produced.
When the goods are delivered, the customer shall check the condition of the packaging and, if this has any defects, show these on a diagram on the delivery note. If there is any serious defect to the packaging, the customer shall, in the presence of the driver, open the packaging to check the goods for damage. The customer shall notify Designers Field immediately of this and e-mail it a photo of the condition in which the goods and packaging have been delivered.
If it is discovered that the goods are damaged as a result of the faulty packaging, the customer shall reject the goods and hand them back to the driver. The customer shall immediately notify Designers Field of this by fax or e-mail.
Unless notified otherwise, an order can be cancelled or changed for up to five working days following the date the order was made. In other cases an order cannot be cancelled without the express consent of Designers Field. If Designers Field should agree to the whole or partial cancellation of, or change to, an order, it may attach financial conditions to this. Deposits are non-refundable. This applies particularly to products no longer in stock or products that need to be produced in a non-standard size or color. If costs are already incurred in the performance of an agreement before there is agreement to cancel the whole or part of the agreement, the customer shall pay these costs on demand by Designers Field.
6. Changes to specifications
There could be small changes to the specifications of certain products, in terms of shape, color, packaging etc. Despite any such changes to standard specifications, Designers Field has nevertheless any obligation or responsibility, to changes outside standard specifications.The items proposed in wood, marble,concrete, ceramic and glass collections are individually produced.The imperfection on the finishing such as color variation, size variation, material and production properties should be considered as a unique characteristic of the product
7. Complaints and returns
If the goods are not delivered in good condition or, in the opinion of the customer they are not in accordance with the order or not all goods have been delivered as per the order, the customer shall immediately notify Designers Field of this, and in any event not later than the 7 working days following the day on which the goods are received, by email or fax. Designers Field is not obliged to deal with complaints that are received too late. If the customer files a complaint, it must provide as clear a description as possible of the defect and attach a digital photo to the email. A complaint is not justified if the goods are not used in accordance with the instructions for use, if they are used inexpertly or not used for the purpose for which they were\intended or if any defect is caused by the lack of care of the customer. If the goods are damaged through transport, the customer should send to Designers Field the copy of the delivery note showing way in which the goods were delivered in a damaged state on a drawing. If there is no such drawing on the delivery note, then Designers Field shall not accept the complaint. If the complaint is found to be justified by Designers Field, then Designers Field has the choice of either terminating the agreement with regard to the defective goods and crediting the customer, or replacing the defective goods with similar goods. Goods that are the subject of a complaint may only be returned to Designers Field if Designers Field has given prior written consent for this or has indicated that it wishes for the goods to be returned. In the latter case, the goods shall be returned to Designers Field as soon as possible. If the goods are not returned within eight days of the request for their return, it is assumed that the customer wises to keep the goods and has withdrawn the complaint. In such a case, the full purchase price is payable for the goods. If in response to a justified complaint Designers Field has replaced the defective goods, then Designers Field is deemed to have delivered such goods in good time, even if the deadline set by the customer has expired.
8. Suspension and termination
Designers Field is entitled to suspend in whole or in part performance of its obligations under any agreement or to terminate the agreement if:
- the customer has failed to comply on time, in full or at all with its obligations under previous agreements;
- if having entered into the agreement, Designers Field has good grounds to fear that the customer will not (be able to) comply with its payment obligations;- the customer was requested at the time the agreement was entered into to provide security but has failed to supply any such security or any adequate security. If, due to delay on the part of the customer, Designers Field can no longer be expected to comply with the agreement upon the terms originally agreed, then Designers Field is entitled to terminate the agreement.
Designers Field is also entitled to terminate the agreement if circumstances arise whose nature and extent means that Designers Field cannot be expected according to the principles of reasonableness and fairness to perform the original agreement.

Designers Field is also entitled to rely on force majeure if the situation of force majeure begins after
Designers Field should have fulfilled its obligations. Insofar as at the time the situation of force majeure commences Designers Field has partly fulfilled its obligations under the agreement or is still able to do so, then Designers Field is entitled to invoice for all the parts of the agreement it has complied with or will comply with.
